Pluto Retrograde in Capricorn

Standard

 

Pluto starts its reverse movement into Retrograde on April 22nd and runs through September 30th! Pluto Retrograde isn’t as glitchy as Mercury or Saturn in Retrograde, so you may hardly notice it unless you work with a lot of people and know their deeper emotional issues. But you will recognize it more so on a deep psychological level within yourself if you’re aware of your feelings and get in touch with your soul purpose. The planet of deep analysis normally takes us more inward, but in Retrograde it becomes a journey into hidden realms we may not have dealt with, so the feelings we’ve been holding on to or repressing can come out in the open.

Pluto Retrograde in the sign of Capricorn can be beneficial, if we are observant and pay close attention to any unconscious patterns or behaviors that motivate our actions, then we can change or break them. Pluto is all about power so authority figures or anyone who represents authority, and those anyone who has power over us may catch our attention, or we suddenly are on their radar, so we may have to be careful and follow the rules for now, especially with Saturn the “Authority Figure” or “Father” of the Zodiac also in Retrograde!

During the end of April be extra cautious for tempers and hot-heads, as Mars and Pluto make a challenging but powerful connection on April 26th. This energy will be even stronger because of Pluto coming to a standstill just days prior.

Pluto Retrograde is like Saturn, so it has a regular cycle every year that lasts for five months, as it makes an opposition to the Sun. Outer planets just affect us in a very different way then the inner planets. The effects are more subtle at first until we move past this cycle and can look back in hindsight, and then we realize just how this time might have been life-changing in some way! Perspective is always an issue when planets are Retrograde, remember, so even though Pluto in Retrograde isn’t probably causing you strange technical glitches or annoyances it still makes its presence known in a sneaky sort of stealth kind of way. When Pluto goes Retrograde it’s a good time to reflect on how we are doing with changes and our soul transformation.

Pluto Retrograde is a time of reflection on power and control in your life. If there are people who are trying to control or manipulate you then now is the perfect time to let them go! If you’ve been too controlling of others or situations then it’s time to stop it and change your behavior! This is not a time to abuse any kind of power you have over others, so avoid power trips, and make this a time for eliminating.

Themes that seem to repeat and events that are almost fated will help you reinforce which of your controlling habits, addictions, compulsions, or prejudices now must be eliminated, or Pluto will make these issues more relevant, so it feels like a giant spotlight gets shined on the problem to be analyzed and reviewed very intensely, but again you may not even be aware of it until it’s over with. What isn’t working, like poor health, an attitude that is hateful or that causes suffering may be burned away now, released and offered up to the Universe. What’s left and what is working will be more clear and enhanced into pure energy.

Relationships are going to go through a strong period of adjustment during Pluto’s Retrograde cycle. There will be more love, and sharing, and more folks standing together for their lives’ causes. It’s a good time to keep a low profile as privacy can be your strongest tool during this time. It’s a time to dissolve, so do it with dignity and respect.

In your relationships, you might have been controlling, possibly holding on too tight and smothering your partner. It’s time to stop because you need to start letting go. If you have been compulsive or obsessive about food, drugs, or sex and it’s taken over your life, then certain events may actually force you to turn it around and gain control over it. Basically, the more destructive your behavior the more extreme your cycle of detoxing and withdrawal might be during this cycle. For example, if you just stopped doing something cold turkey, Pluto Retrograde makes it a very intense process.

~Pluto’s energy can be profound and will do what it needs to, to transform dark to light!

Pluto often is represented by the Phoenix, and as the Phoenix rises from it the ashes, is how it transforms us, which you may not realize at first, but you’ll know because you’ll feel it! Pluto is in the sign of Capricorn for now, and Pluto represents destruction, making order out of chaos, it helps to clear obstacles, detox, resurrect! Capricorn is the builder of the Zodiac, it likes to renovate. Together they restore and enhance with the very best materials and devices that modern times has to offer! Sustainability is what they represent. Capricorn is the Father, so he is dedicated, powerful, responsible, and stable! Also, Saturn is Capricorn’s ruling planet, so these energies will truly help us be productive, at least for those of you who put forth the effort. Intuition will be very strong, work will be focused right at the critical points where things need to get fixed or done.

Daily Update – A Turning Point!

For all the Signs of the ZODIAC:

The MOON remains in more pleasing, charming LIBRA all day long, so we tend to be more kind to others and even accommodating. The COSMOS is throwing some seriously strong energies together now and we’re just trying to balance it all! There might be challenges, but in this energy, we tend to be more cautious and open-minded. Acting like grown-ups helps conflicts get solved more easily.

Also today, the “LAST QUARTER MOON” phase comes together, this is a somewhat tense energy actually and you may feel irritable and frustrated by it so anxieties can run high! We need some sort of release under this energy, feeling like we should take action now!

The planets connecting over the next several days are helping us attract a lot of opportunities!

The SUN is aligning with creative VENUS and is favorable with expansive JUPITER, and ambitious MARS is favorable with transforming PLUTO! WOW! We’re so plugged into the UNIVERSE right now folks, that many of you have been experiencing a strong connection to your dreams, they are more clear, vivid, and symbolic than usual. Messages, signs, and symbols are all over the place right now!

So much energy is being poured into our projects and relationships now that we’re more energetic, passionate and resourceful! It’s easy to make new friendships now, and for starting new projects, and finding new jobs or making career changes. We’re seeking and gaining attention and we like it! Our unique qualities and special gifts are being noticed and discovered if we put ourselves out there, as we show the world we mean business now.

Under this manifesting energy, we go after what and who we want, as we can attract things in a balanced way and can be highly successful now. Goals may seem ambitious but they are very doable now, as standards are high.

This influence has everyone feeling especially sociable, generous, and more tolerant! Relationships are going through it, as some are ending or hitting rough patches, as we notice what we want to change about each other, but also this is mirror-mirror on the wall energy, so basically whatever bothers us about our partners is showing up to help us change something also within ourselves! The intensity of these planetary connections is pushing us to make major changes in how we feel and do our relationships now, this is a major turning point for us, as we are taking actions more than ever now.

This is a very important time for relationships and business, as we can experience major changes in this life-changing energy!

An amazing time for business owners, this is beautiful energy for marketing, promotion, publishing, and advertising of all kinds. Our business sense is strong and we’re particularly good with money, as we have a better and deeper understanding around our business finances, and are on point and know what to do or not to do, our logic and intuition are meeting up and syncing together quite nicely.

Many of you are feeling like gaining control over your lives during this time, but you also want to grow, excel, and advance in some way. Don’t focus on what you have not done, now is the time to be ambitious and make important changes.

“Pluto Goes Direct! – Where is your Power?”

“Pluto Goes Direct! – Where is your Power?”

Have you been depressed and feeling powerless, well you should read more to learn why! Get ready folks because here we go, literally!

Since April 20th, we have been in a deep place of processing about where we have power and what we have control over. As transformational Pluto in Capricorn steadies itself out and goes direct from Retrograde today, this gives us the chance to make some solid, long-lasting changes.

Since Pluto holds immense power and Capricorn is all about structure, these two combined energies can cause things to get a bit volatile, so be careful folks, this can be over the most ridiculous things, as we adjust to Pluto moving forward again.

However, for now, our focus shifts to the powerless areas of our lives and teaches us just how to gain control of them with this commanding Pluto-Capricorn combo. The good things in our life are going to be released to us now. It’s time to learn how to let go and disengage from what isn’t working any longer and experience the freedom that comes from gaining closure from the past!

You can feel this energy, as it opens doors that help us choose the life we really want to live. Now, slowly but surely over the coming weeks, we will be able to make deep changes in our lives without having to overthink or so deeply process things first. This actually helps us get things done because we’re able to take things naturally into our own hands and make any necessary changes.

“New “Super” Moon Day”

“New “Super” Moon Day”
 
The Moon is in Gemini and goes into a NEW MOON CYCLE on May 25, 2017, at 3:45 PM EDT and 2:45 PM CST and 12:44 PM PST
 
A New “Super” Moon comes together in the sign of mentally active Gemini today, this can be a very powerful influence that we get to bask in all the way through Friday night or very early Saturday morning. If you’re a Gemini or not, it doesn’t matter, as all the signs of the Zodiac will be able to tap into this amazing energy and push their dreams forward!
 
This is a new cycle that creates “New Beginnings”, a New Moon is when the Sun and the Moon meet up and make a powerfully strong harmonious connection that generally is favorable. And both the Sun and Moon are in Gemini this month, which is full of gifts and challenges both but is extremely potent due to being a “Super” New Moon, which means it’s a very powerful energy to create the wishes you desire the most and to actually produce results.
 
The New Moon always has a theme and represents the duality between the Sun and Moon, and the zodiac signs they are currently in, which means we have to figure our how to balance these two energies. Since we are already in a place of balancing out our emotions or feelings and thoughts, we can learn how to sync them together. This is the key to success under the New Moon in Gemini.
 
Gemini energy is all about how we communicate with others! So how are your social skills these days? Learn how to listen when others are talking to you, and not just listening to reply. Take in other folks viewpoints, and hear them out and their opinions. It’s important to remember in life to intently listen to others, you can learn an awful lot. This is a good cycle to learn how to communicate in a more friendly way without being rude or threatening.
 
This New Moon’s energy may be felt quite intensely, this can cause over thinking, worrying, and stress! Don’t waste your time or energy on worrying about things that you cannot change. Don’t allow your mind to go off to scattered and in too many different directions, it’s a time to FOCUS, and you may have to redirect yourself over and over again, but that’s ok, focus on the work and tasks at hand and think positive thoughts about everything and everyone.
 
This New Moon energy is a great opportunity to make some serious changes in your life and to start something new and fresh!
 
Under this potent Gemini energy, we have the chance to make some seriously important changes in our lives. It’s time to stop and breathe more deeply and celebrate how your mind takes in all the information the Universe sends you.
 
Because this New Moon is all about the sign of Gemini and its lessons we must look at the way Gemini energy rules over how we think, communicate, express ourselves, and how it rules our way of thinking, and how we process information. It is very important this week that we SPEAK of what we want or choose in a positive manner and that we hold those higher vibrational thoughts! Don’t allow negative thinking to sort of take away from your positive mindset. Don’t let fear or doubt challenge you or your wishes.
 
If you think negative thoughts, say something to take them back by replacing them with something positive and be crystal clear, remember right now especially with the Sun and Moon in Gemini, what we say, do, and think holds tremendous power. Then just repeat the wish you made again, it’s not so easy to retrain your mind, but it can be done, and personally, I just pause and clear my mind before I speak, that is has helped me truly manifest many things in my life.
 
Mastering your thoughts is worth the work because it helps you master your life. Everything we see and all that happens in our lives is a direct result of our manifesting, be it good, bad, or indifferent in one way or another, aware or unaware it was all created in some way by you! Thoughts hold energy, so use raw energy of this New Moon to make the changes in your life around what you think and manifest.
 
Be very clear with your intentions during this New Moon!
 
Both Mercury and Venus are in their own Signs right now, and this is a great strong, potent energy to harness and to be used for rituals or manifesting work. This New Moon cycle also has some strong astrological challenges coming in with it, however, there is a tense connection coming together now between Mars and Saturn. This combo means roadblocks and obstacles are in our way and can break us down before we can get moving forward, so it takes a whole lot of effort on our part (like climbing a brick wall at times), and we must use whatever skills we have to achieve what we want.
 
In Astrology, as in life, it’s important to understand the nature of the challenges we are facing, to better understand the gifts we each possess that will help us overcome these challenges.
Have a Happy New Moon!

Pluto Retrograde

“Personal Power”
Contrary to popular belief the planet Pluto affects our lives and even though it’s far away in the cosmos, it’s a very powerful force to be reckoned with indeed and takes us through major psychological transformations and powerful resurrections while we are here on this journey. So even though the scientist argue if Pluto is big enough to be considered a “Planet”, most Astrologers agree that its influence is significant and a powerful part of who we are!
Pluto is completely still at this time and will turn RETROGRADE TODAY all the way through September 27th. So yes folks, that’s yet another planet going into its Retrograde cycle to add to the list along with Mercury, Jupiter, and Saturn. And Venus just came out of her Retro cycle a few days ago, but she is till quite testy trying to get back to normal, which is affecting relationships in a big bad way right now!
Pluto’s influence is a seriously intense complex energy, and we might feel this sort of heaviness while under this influence over the coming months. Pluto Retro cycle runs all the way through September 28th so we will go through a process of learning how we use or abuse our own personal power! It might actually be easier for some folks because they may not be as power hungry for control during this time, and will be less in touch with their own power and choose to ignore it during this cycle.
Pluto’s Retrograde cycle is a process of growth that teaches us to hold onto our personal power, but some folks will attempt to steal your power during this cycle! Remember you can’t lose your power, but it can be taken, so it’s up to you to not give it away! Hopefully, you will come to this realization during this cycle. There might be circumstances that arise that force us to fight those who attempt to take our power or lessen our self-worth in some way, but you will get stronger and can feel empowered by the time this cycle is over when Pluto moves forward once again.
Also, remember that when you release your past emotional wounds or trauma, you will raise your vibration and any old energy will die off allowing new more positive energy to flow in. This newer energy can bring about changes that are rough along with tests and challenges, but it also provides us with new opportunities for growth and harmony once the challenges are over.

Evolve! Jupiter/Pluto Square

Standard

There is a tense long-term square between Jupiter and Pluto that’s starting to form together now that is extremely powerful. This is the first connection of three in a series, that runs all the way through August of 2017! And we have already witnessed what this powerful energy can do thus far.

Jupiter is about growth, expansion, excess, and benefits.
Pluto is about power, transformation, struggle, and obstacles.
With this connection, Jupiter is under great stress and is in a challenging connection with Pluto.

We actually just got out from under a long-term aspect between the Sun and powerful Pluto that played a big role in our lives through most of 2016! But it looks like Pluto is back once again and this time it’s challenging larger than life Jupiter. Even though the Election is over, Pluto’s influence brings about strong power struggles as we are experiencing now. Pluto rules over hidden agendas and often revenge. All the tension and arguing is living proof of just how this aspect is already affecting us and what it can do! There won’t be any easy solutions now. The United States and the World are under deep psychotherapy through August of 2017!

Pluto’s energy brings about a purging of the deeper, darker more negative side of humanity. So we are made to deal with our shadow-self under this influence, and the most difficult issues that we might be refusing to deal with or that have been kept repressed or hidden. This influence is now in our face and we haven’t a choice but to deal with these issues or suffer some consequences.

This influence actually does have a positive effect as well. It gives us the energy to chase our ambitions and make important changes to end things that aren’t working for us anymore. If you have any unfinished business or projects to wrap up, now is the time to get them done and completed.

Karma comes about quick and swiftly for those folks who have chosen to either misuse or abuse their power! The karmic debt will be paid by many, so it’s a good time to redeem yourself in some way if need be and make things right! Relationships and partnerships can also get hit pretty hard under this influence. There can be power struggles among lovers, family, close friends, and business partners. Some folks will have to deal with issues around money, joint resources, inheritances, and other people’s money.

The Jupiter/Pluto Square peaks on Thanksgiving Day, November 24th, so it’s important to be aware of just how powerful this connection is and how it might affect you. It will take a few weeks for this energy to sort of calm back down, but keep in mind it’s a long-term aspect, so whatever it starts will have to run its course. And then it will come back together again two more times through August of 2017!

*Cancer Sun Signs, pay attention!*
*Those born (June 21st – July 22nd) need to understand this connection can be a thorn in your side. You may have to stand up for yourself and what you truly believe in during this time. Anyone who is close to a Cancer might want to remind themselves that their crab maybe extra moody and tense during this time. If things get to be too overwhelming to deal with, take a step away and breathe! Allow them to do what they need to. You may have to give in a little with them for now, but if you care about them then it’s worth it! Right?*

Also take note that the United States is considered in astrology to be a Sun Sign Cancer! Wow huh! America is going through it now! First with all the election tension, and now continued with the one group who holds the most “Power” over the people, our government! It’s pretty evident that this country is under great strain and tension right now, no matter what side of the fence you are on, we all are experiencing this energy as a nation.

The Jupiter/Pluto Square can cause feelings of being blocked or restricted in some way. Folks can suddenly decide to block you from expanding your ideas or reaching your goals, during this cycle. Even though this can be a difficult time, there is another astrological connection that comes together just one week after Thanksgiving, involving Jupiter once again and authoritative Saturn. This influence ushers in a more positive energy that can help clean up some of the mess the Jupiter/Pluto Square has caused. In the meanwhile, through the end of November, there may be tensions in our relationships, as they can be tested quite strongly. Some will be faced with making very difficult decisions that require determination to get through. There can be just one person within a relationship who seems to give in and up, for the sake of keeping the relationship together in the long-run. Sacrifice and forgiveness are very important during this time.

No matter what part of your personal Astrology “Birth Chart” the Jupiter/Pluto Square is cruising through, it will affect some area of your life! The key to success is in the knowing of just which part, then you are better able to deal with whatever challenges might come your way.

How to get through the Jupiter/Pluto Square: Here is a list of what seems to be the areas of our lives most affected by this influence.

Work or place of employment; the following issues might come up.

– Misuse of Power
– Change in Ranks – a new supervisor or manager comes in
– Ego’s inflated and out of control
– Setbacks and/or obstacles that hold you back
– Not able to move forward in your career
– Feeling stuck or stagnate at work
– Being blocked from reaching full potential or growth
– People in positions of power taking advantage of other employees, like bosses, clients,         and co-workers
– Taking on too much responsibility
– Overwhelmed with work
– Other employees passing their work or responsibilities off on you.

The best way to handle issues involving your work or career;

– Be open to new ideas around your work or career.
– Perhaps look for new work or different job
– Disconnect from work related issues, if you stay at your job.
– Go to work, get paid, go home during this time, change of attitude.
– Remember this won’t last for too long
– Choose battles wisely

Intimate Relationship Issues; this energy can really affect all our relationships, so we must be careful of the following.

– Stress
– Partners jumping to conclusions
– Questioning each other’s motives
– Feelings of anger and jealousy
– Hurting your partner in some way
– Power struggles
– Fighting for independence within the relationship
– Unrealistic Expectations around your partner
– Old wounds and past relationship issues being brought back up

Remedies to keep our relationships good:

– Listen to your partner
– Let your partner be heard
– Communication
– Don’t be rude or mean
– No ignoring the issues or each other
– Do not disconnect from each other emotionally
– Get space if needed

Health issues that may come from this aspect are as follows;

– Issues with fatigue
– Feeling ran down and unmotivated
– Irritability
– Anxiety
– Unusual feelings of Frustration or Anger

Ways to Keep Yourself Healthy;

– Get plenty of rest
– Take time to yourself to relax
– Meditation
– Support Adrenal Glands

All astrological aspects or connections have both a positive and negative affect on us, some are more challenging and others more harmonious. With lucky Jupiter involved in this particular aspect, we should look to what the bigger picture is in regards to whatever situation we are thrown into. This Square can bring out the best and worst in us, as we have just started to experience its influence. (The US elections have been very much affected by this energy.) It’s been rough stuff for some of you already! Focus on the higher purpose and what lessons this square is trying to teach you. With these particular planets involved, the Universe is trying to get you to make some much-needed changes in your life, so this influence will shake you up to make sure you get it done. But this aspect can teach some very valuable lessons.

It’s important that we look towards the light at the end of the “astrological” tunnel now because we won’t be under this energy forever! This energy has already begun and will run its course at least through November, and do remember whatever issues it brings out will have to be dealt with or you may have even more problems, so deal with the issues that come up during this time. The most important thing we can do now is to focus on just how we choose to handle the lessons that come our way. Be kind, open-minded, and respectful in all that you do and you’ll get through this time much more easily! Don’t fight it, Deal with it!

The Jupiter/Pluto Square is so strong that it can actually help us, and we may feel more passionate and driven. So take this opportunity to chase dreams and goals. It can bring in an energy that’s more hopeful, as we can feel enthusiastic once again about our lives. It gets our blood pumping! Especially, if you do something in a big way, that’s more meaningful. Our relationships can grow and evolve due to the lessons this energy dishes out. And finally, remember all of this is part of our growing pains world we are in right now, and it can be kind of scary and extremely stressful, just like being a teenager! Evolving and growing up is never easy but it’s worth it!

“Something to Believe In”

Standard

Rubys Astro Readings
“Something to Believe In”

King Neptune, the planet that rules spirituality and is finally coming out of its Retrograde cycle. And it’s been a mess, it’s been very disorienting and confusing energy as we get used to it going back to its normal pace. You might have noticed over the last several months as Neptune was in Retrograde, you felt disconnected or lost your faith or spirituality! That connection isn’t lost, we just couldn’t connect the same while Neptune was in Retrograde, however, that’s about to change this weekend, and I for one can hardly wait!

This influence will have you questioning your spirituality and faith! This is putting a lot of foggy energy out there and things aren’t exactly as they appear to be. It’s a good time to ask yourself some questions concerning your spirituality. What do you believe in nowadays, in this moment? What exactly is your faith? Now don’t comment and tell me, because faith can be a loaded word. And I feel that is your own private relationship with the Universe, it’s just for you. Just take some time this week to think about exactly what it is you believe in and find a way to reconnect to it! We need something to believe in right now.

Besides Neptune’s weirdness, we are also playing out the whole Jupiter/Pluto Square’s energy as of now! This connection is building up energy now, (read all about this very important Astrological connection on my page and blog later today.) and it can be extremely intense as we are already seeing, it’s a game changer!

In this cosmic stew, we seem to have made some sort of split! It’s male against female, good versus bad, the whole Ying and Yan energy really playing out. We are stuck in this strange world of polarity that’s forced us to take sides in one way or another! It’s like are you iPhone or Android, or Team Edward or Jacob? But in all seriousness this isn’t a joke by any means…it’s very important business, which is Pluto in action! People are at each other throats, and they are angry and rightfully so.

And since Neptune is involved we seem to have entered into some sort of alternative reality, it reminds me of the whole “Upside Down” theory for all my fellow Netflix TV show, “Stranger Things” Fans! We are seriously down the Rabbit Hole now. Please try to remember the lessons these planets are trying to teach you are all about striking some sort of balance, and perhaps ideally merging together harmoniously one day! As this energy brings out the really bad dark stuff that was always there but was just somewhat hidden for a very long time. This tension is very real and it’s affecting every one of us in some way!

As the strong Jupiter/Pluto Square influence peaks on Thanksgiving Day, (fun times, but not really!) it will continue to bring up and out the tension, it’s a purging. Just don’t allow it to make space for you and your families or friends you love. For whatever reason, these connections are influencing us now, but with Pluto involved its all about learning your shadow self, the dark side of who you are at your core! Jupiter is all about growth and expansion, to me, this is all happening so we will grow up spiritually speaking and EVOLVE! And I’m fairly certain there’s a lot more I don’t know that deeper Astrology can explain about all of this. But that doesn’t mean I like it or feel any less pain from it than you do.

These are growing pains, my friends, it’s always about the lessons we must learn to change things, if we like it or not! We are part of the planets and stars and are always changing with them. Unfortunately, if you feel uncomfortable than you are probably truly learning more than you realize!
