Full Moon in Libra

Full Moon in Libra: April 19, 2019


by Ruby



The Full Moon energy is starting to come together Wednesday the 17th, but won’t completely be FULL until Friday Morning here in the States.

The energy this Full Moon is pushing out is quite strong, so you might feel like taking some sort of action now. You can feel the Full Moon usually about 3 days prior to it being totally FULL. Some of you may feel more tired or run down than usual during this build-up time, especially with Jupiter in Retrograde (backward) right now, so this can be especially strong. Other folks will feel more excitable and anxious during this time, which can lead to feeling more irritated. As the Full Moon swells slowly this week, we can be extremely tuned into our intuition, and since this particular, Full Moon is in the Zodiac Sign of Libra it produces some super-psychic energy! It’s a good time to get Psychic or Astrology Readings or have Energy work done or have some social Full Moon fun, like throwing a little get-together or practicing Full Moon rituals.


The Full Moon on Friday, April 19, 2019, at 29° Libra is opposite the planet of shocks and surprises Uranus.

This means there is a stronger need for change, excitement, and freedom, which can have you feeling more restless and impulsive. Expect the Unexpected during this Full Moon, as there will be unexpected events and strange offbeat behaviors acted out, even more so than usual during a Full Moon. With this Full Moon occurring in the Sign of Libra there can be tensions in our close personal relationships or partnerships, which can bring up emotional issues that we must deal with. There can be a need for emotional support at this is a time, so we should come from the heart and be more compassionate with others. 


The Full Moon occurs when the Sun in Aries forms an opposition to the Libra Moon.

This is on a relationship axis between Aries and Libra energies, (not your Sun Signs.) Aries represents “self” and Libra is about “others.” Aries helps us to be more self-assertive while Libra is about compromise. The energy of the Libra Moon is about being aware of a need for relationships in our human existence, and how to maintain them through balance, compromise, and negotiations. The energy of the Aries Sun is about taking care of one’s self, leading, and personal courage or bravery. The Full Moon illuminates the need to balance taking care of our relationships or our significant other, and meeting our personal needs and desires as well. It is a balance between independence and dependence.

This Full Moon occurs in the final “critical” degree of the Sign of Libra. This is the second Full Moon in Libra in the last few months, the last one occurring in the first degree back on March 20. Which means whatever got starting at the end of March in your relationships or around your personal freedom is at its last lesson now, so something will either end or be completed now. The Sun is heading into an alignment with Uranus in Taurus as well, this brings about revelations around our own personal independence, and the need for other folks to be in our lives and our partnerships. There will be finalities and endings with this Full Moon.


How do you navigate the energy during a Full Moon?

It can make such a huge difference and set the stage for this to be a good or bad experience.

– How you react or don’t is important during a Full Moon Cycle, learn how to NOT overreact during this time. Instead, work on being patient and see how things play out. Getting upset or jumping to conclusions is easier since you can be so overly emotional during this time. But you will just regret it later, as there are a lot of planets right now slowing down to go Retrograde like Jupiter already, and Saturn and Pluto are in their Shadow periods right before their Retrograde cycles. So things can get a little weird if you go blowing things out of proportion.

– Open your mind and be flexible, and look at all your options rather than feeling stuck, and be willing to change something so your circumstances can also shift into something better or more positive. 

– Get rest and plenty of sleep! Work on raising your energetic vibration by doing something that makes you feel good in your soul.  Make sure to be around good friends and company. Eat right and healthy. Make sure to get regular exercise, but also take some time to relax and maybe listen to some music that makes you feel good. All of these things will help you feel much better and help raise your vibrational energy.

– Make peace with yourself, your past, and let go of any situations that aren’t helping you. Maybe write out some Full Moon Intentions around what you are done with and what you would like to Let Go and Release! 


Full Moon April 2019 Times and Dates

  • Los Angeles – 19 April, 4:12 am PST
  • New York – 19 April, 7:12 am EDT
  • Chicago – 19 April, 6:12 am CDT

Above are the exact times when the Full Moon comes together, so it’s time to “Set Intentions”, or make out those Wish Lists! It’s especially a good time to work at letting go of something. But you can start by doing some sort of Full Moon ritual or magic when the Moon shifts into Libra Wednesday morning, so before the Moon is totally Full, which personally is a much better time to manifest! Just never do any kind of energy work during the VOID MOON cycle, it just doesn’t work out the same, as the Moon is shifting from one Zodiac Sign to another. This is a valuable time to release something or someone in your life, it could be a person, a place, or situation, or even an old behavior or a belief.

Focus your energy on bringing something new into your life, while also maintaining the relationships you already have. Remember that Full Moons are potent times for releasing work and endings. Full Moons reveal either internally or externally something important, the truth comes out or is illuminated in some way! With the Full Moon in the sign of Libra balance is key. But no matter what your Zodiac Sign, there’s a strong chance you might feel pulled on or pushed too far, so take a step back from time to time and take care of yourself and each other.

Have a Happy and Safe Full Moon,

April Astrology Forecast

April is a busy month, so get ready folks, with Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto all going into Retrograde phases this month, it’s a time for reassessment around what you are doing in your life. And with four planets in magical Pisces, the focus is more on imagination and illumination than practical matters. This period is wonderful for creativity and spiritual exploration but it’s best to wait until at least April 5th before making decisions that require focus, or a the very least some careful thought and consideration.

Since our plans and projects will be under such an intense review throughout the month of April we must make sure an align our goals with our life’s purpose. It’s also a good time to stop any activities that just are simply holding you back, or aren’t serving you. Quit wasting valuable time and energy. If you take the time to review your goals and plans this month than you’ll probably see progress in the fall when things really take off again. But for now, you have some lessons to get through and hopefully learn from.


April 2nd – Creative Confusion 

Mercury just recently out of its Retrograde cycle (but still in the after Rx Shadow phase through the 16th) makes a powerful connection to Neptune the king of dreams and escape. Mercury rules our mind and how we think, communicate, and perceive information. Neptune rules over things like our imagination, spirituality, and deceptions. This influence can inspire you and others, so you may feel highly creative. This also can help you communicate your dreams to the person you adore. 

But it’s also causing confusion with mental Mercury just in the after-Shadow period of Retrograde, also in Pisces, as well as Neptune. All in all, this energy can make things unclear and foggy. If something sounds too good to be true it probably is. Don’t get ripped off or scammed, deception is in the air right now. Find ways to be inspired, get creative and this fog will finally be lifting for good in a few days.


April 4th – Power Moves 

Powerful Pluto makes an intense connection to the Lunar South Node point both in the sign of Capricorn. Some folks could try to make bold moves to gain power or control during this time. So there may be some pretty wild upheavals. There can be ego battles that can be destructive in one way or another. If you force issues on others without taking responsibility for your own actions it can backfire on you. This is not a good time to just go after things on a whim without seriously taking consideration your consequences. Take some time to evaluate your goals and make plans for your next move, so you can get what it is you really want, but just make sure to not bump heads along the way, or it will only cause you more problems. 


April 5th – New Moon in Aries – New Beginnings

There’s a New Moon in the sign of Aries occurring and whatever you’ve been planning or working on can finally start to get moving. This energy gives us a chance to breathe new life into already existing projects. This is all about “New Beginnings” in a big bold way! As the first sign of the Zodiac, Aries is all about courage, and it gives us a huge dose of higher confidence and energy to take on our tasks, projects, and goals and make things happen! The Pluto-South Node alignment is also occurring around the same time frame, so this can help us to be more practical, even if we are more daring with new and innovative ideas.  If you already know enough to make an informed decision, it’s important to not be indecisive. Try to be patient and look for more information around the next Full Moon on April 19 that will help you know what to do next. 


April 10 – A Reality Check 

The Sun is making a tense Square formation with taskmaster Saturn. It’s important to know what responsibilities you want to take on and what you don’t, it’s a good time for some assessment of your life. as you will be challenged to rid of the things that you are doing too much of or that might be taking up to much of your time and energy. It’s no longer “go big or go home,” instead your mantra for this time should be, “go small or give in! Create balance around what you want and that is for the greater good of everyone. 


April 10 – Take a Step Back 

Giant Jupiter is going to be making its yearly backward trip as it enters its Retrograde cycle for nearly four months.  Making progress will come to a halt as this cosmic turnaround tends to slow us down. This is a cycle of reflection into what gives your life deeper meaning, and what helps you feel more abundant. This isn’t typically a time of difficulty, but when Jupiter gets ready to turn Retrograde it can seriously slow us down as it’s an influence is more intense feeling. This actually can cause you to feel a sense of urgency and desire to find something more expansive in your life and to get rid of the things that are restricting you, holding you back, or that are keeping you from feeling happy or satisfied. 
Every now and then the Universe has a way of making us take a time out to review our lives, to make sure that our plans and projects are still what we want and need. Through August 11th is a time for cutbacks on the activities that don’t help you reach your goals, and to rid of any distractions that waste your time, energy, and money! Don’t worry about the projects that slowly go to the waste side, as they were a waste of your time anyway, During this cycle whatever plans don’t make the cut will turn out to probably be a blessing in disguise. Once Jupiter is direct, whatever plans or projects you have been working on will start to come together. You got a long time to sort it all out. If you happen to know your Astrology Birth Chart, you can look up just exactly what part of your chart this cycle is cruising through to get more information. 


April 13 – Power Moves 

The Sun is making a tense Square to potent Pluto! With the Sun’s transit through the sign of Aries, most of us are trying to initiate something, but we might have to deal with some powerful energies for a few days. Perhaps a person who has their own agenda or situation might ask you to change something up that throws your original plans out the window! It’s a time to be paying close attention and for being more mindful of other folks needs, besides your own. You can’t always take and take from others and expect something if you are not giving anything back in return. You can also be challenged in some way to make sure you are empowering yourself. Don’t be stubborn and don’t give everything away either. You will know when the time comes what you need to do if you pay attention to your signs and messages from the Universe during this powerful few days. 


April 17 – Quick Thinking 

The planet of communication Mercury will enter into bolder, enterprising Aries that brings amazing new insights and flashes of genius. This can help us take any plans or projects we might have new directions. Just make sure these directions are on a path towards your life’s purpose in some way and not a huge detour. Take this time to connect with other folks who help stimulate your thinking and who are encouraging, as this cycle can help you rid of old behaviors and habits for a better future. Also, keep in mind that Aries is known for being the God of War. It’s not a time to be debating or arguing or you can get caught up in all the negative drama and those great ideas won’t get moving forward. Instead, direct your energy towards achieving goals so you can take full advantage of this transits that will run through May 6th.


April 19 – Full Moon in Libra – Balancing the Chaos

When the Sun in Aries makes a tense but exciting connection to the Moon in Libra a Full Moon will occur. We are just coming out of the New Moon cycle at this point that started on April 5th. This Full Moon cycle is at what’s called the critical degree or anaretic degree, this means completion and marks the end of one cycle and the evolution into another. This Full Moon in Libra, the sign of balance and integration, encourages us to find ways to leave behind anything that is standing in our way of finding balance. Something might have to come to an end in order for us to find peace and harmony. This is also a time of culmination as you get a chance to take a step back and see if you are doing right by others and if you are paying attention to the folks in your life and their needs and desires. It’s all about being fair as our sense of justice is stronger than usual, put your focus on strengthening the bonds in your current relationships. Even though the Full Moon is always a time of endings, it is a time to work on releasing the energies that no longer are working for you. But this will be a social Full Moon time, so it’s a great energy to have a party under or to spend some time with a close BFF, and since Libra is about relationships maybe have a romantic dinner with the object of your affection.


April 20 – Sun enters Taurus

This Sun cycle is a time when we simply slow down, but we are also more determined, patient, and stubborn. The energy of the sign of Taurus is more practical, grounded, and stable. This is a great help with so many other cosmic connections during this time speeding things up, we can take a time out and look more closely at events unfolding around us or any complicated situations we are involved in with some common sense. This transit highlights things that are pleasing, beautiful, and attractive. This will be a month of relying on what’s always worked in the past but also moving forward with the times, it’s about integrating tradition with evolution in our lives. You will want to be more comfortable during this time as well, so set up camp for the next month to make sure you have a safe and cozy place to hang out while the Sun is in Taurus. Our senses are aroused and highly activated, so we enjoy more so, whatever pleases the senses, with things like food, music, entertainment, and sexual activities, (especially with Mars in the sign of Gemini as well, bow-chicka-bow-wow) we can have an incredibly sexy month. This cycle runs through May 21st.


April 20 – Blazing Love

The Goddess of love, Venus is moving into the first sign of the Zodiac, Aries, this brings fresh new energy into your love life and around your finances. This cycle brings love on rather quickly, relationships both new and old are more direct and spontaneous. Under this fiery influence, we tend to hunt each other down in matters of the heart, as we are more bold, courageous, aggressive, and impatient. Even though we can much more direct than usual with the folks we love and care for, some of you might be more reserved about your deeper emotions, and if you are feeling insecure you can get kind of aggressive or mean, especially if someone isn’t validating or expressing love back. This can cause some folks to be more sneaky and strategic when it comes to matters of the heart or anything involving money. Under the Venus in Aries influence we don’t look back to the past, it is a time to move forward. Each day is looked at as new and full of opportunities, so each moment matters more. We are not interested in anything mushy or things like apologies, we simply enjoy the chase and conquest. Relationships that are more long-term can use this fiery energy to reignite their passions, and if single love that is initiated now can sizzle out fast. Make sure and keep things moving forward if you want a new commitment around love or money, but also pay attention to what will happen in the long-term unless you are just looking for a hookup! This will run through May 15th. 


April 22 – Exciting Journeys 

A new exciting journey begins with the Sun making a connection called a “conjunction” to more unpredictable Uranus! This can be a liberating experience as we move forward from old habits and ways of thinking, especially about ourselves. Staying positive is key to being successful under this cycle, as it may not be as stable as some would like, but good things can happen. It’s a time to put your past behind you where it belongs, and keep an open mind about other people and embrace new thoughts and ideas. Most of all stay true to yourself and honor other people’s desire to express who they are and their own unique qualities. 


April 24 – Power Plays – Pluto Retrograde

Powerful Pluto challenges us on how we use and gain personal power, when Pluto goes backward or Retrograde. How do you deal with power and control? Some folks can’t simply get enough of power, and others are nervous when they have more, and then there are a few folks who refuse to take control of anything in their lives when they should. When Pluto goes Retrograde, it brings about power struggles around well, power, people rise and fall from power during this time, as there are lots of plays for power made. This is a good time to do some soul searching around your own personal relationship with power. What are your goals? What do you want to achieve in life? Do you feel like you have power over someone else and their life or is someone making the decisions for you? This can affect any part of our lives, but for the next several months we will be figuring out to how to move forward in ways that make us happy, just be careful about who’s toes you step on or how many folks you use your power over to get there! Remember Karmic balance always comes into play with these sort of things and if you abuse or just use folks to get what you want, it will eventually catch up with you in one way or another. Pluto will be in its Retrograde cycle until October 3rd.


Saturn Retrograde

April 29 – Saturn goes Retrograde – Taking Responsibility

Saturn the planet of rules and boundaries goes into its yearly Retrograde phase. This is a time when we must review our lives and make sure what we going after is exactly what we still want. This Retro period lasts through September 18th. During this Retro cycle, we are taken back over territory that we probably have already been through at one point. Saturn is about taking our responsibilities, rules, and boundaries more seriously. So there are going to be areas of your life that are important to go back over and review, to see what you can do to make these situations more secure. This can be a frustrating time, so we have to face possible limitations, barriers, or working on ending habits that aren’t so good for our future long-term success. 


April 30 – Saturn in Retrograde gets a boost!

To further enhance Saturn in Retrogrades energies, Saturn is in a conjunction with the Lunar South Node point. You may want to think about what you are being responsible for? Are you taking other folks burdens on or taking care of other people’s obligations? Do you think you should be the one in charge and are telling everyone else what you think they should be doing? Are you taking the steps to fix things when something comes up or are you enabling bad behavior? During this cycle, it’s time to go over your responsibilities and let go of old habits, old learned behaviors, and ways of thinking around who’s in charge and why!


Have a good month folks, and if you need guidance please give me a buzz and schedule a session. Email is healingruby@gmail.com or message me on Facebook at Rubys Psychic Readings

Full Moon Guide



“How does the ‘Full Moon’ affect you, and how do you utilize its potent energy?”


During a ‘Full Moon’ you have an opportunity to bring about some positive changes in your life if you use this energy wisely. It either can increase the positive energy around you or it can be an emotional wrecking ball, the choice is yours. This guide is a helpful reminder about how to work with the ‘Full Moon’ and its energies.


Remember a ‘Full Moon’ disperses a lot of energy, and that energy pours into each and every one of us. So the key to achieving success during a ‘Full Moon’ is to stay calm and embrace its positive effects. Whatever is going on with your mind, body and spirit will certainly be felt much stronger during a ‘Full Moon’, and our emotions can seem extremely intense. A ‘Full Moons’ energy is very powerful, so it’s important to know where you’re directing it. You can start by staying focused on positive intentions from your heart. Which means being real and authentic with yourself.


We’ve all heard of how the ‘Full Moon’ affects human behavior, causing chaos; as it fills up emergency rooms, but we also see random acts of crime spike dramatically during a Full Lunar cycle. Not only does the Moon actually create the tides in the ocean, science has also proven that the ocean literally ‘swells’ during a ‘Full Moon.’ The human body is made up of around 70% water. If the ‘Full Moon’ can move an entire ocean it certainly can and does have an impact on our human bodies that are mostly made of water. Water is strongly associated with and symbolizes our emotional well-being.


So just as the power of the ‘Full Moon’ can make entire oceans swell and move, the water we hold within ourselves becomes charged up from its energy, and this causes emotional side effects. The energy of a ‘Full Moon’ has a strong influence on us, hence why people act out days prior to its actual being Full…. this usually starts about three days prior and up to three days after it became Full. Just think about how the ‘Full Moons’ energy is affecting each and every one of us, literally from the inside out, it’s a very powerful, potent energy. All of the Moon’s cycles affect us differently, (but they do affect us,) because they’re part of us. The ‘Full Moon’ perhaps having the most dramatic and noticeable impact.


Ask yourself just how much personal power you have? If one can stay focused and use the ‘Full Moons’ energy to send out positive intentions, you can create and manifest energy out here…in this physical reality. It’s really all just about being conscious and aware of what you’re creating. Water molecules have been proven to hold an emotional charge within our bodies. How you feel is how they react, and they DO react according to your energetic intentions. So if you’re happy or sad, positive or negative, the water within you is affected on a molecular level. If we concentrate on this energy and focus on what we truly desire, and then visualize that – even more importantly FEEL it – can you imagine the possibilities! We can literally create what it is we desire out here in this physical world. I find that to be exciting! If you’re more interested in understanding how the water in our bodies affects us, check out this website on Dr. Masaru Emoto’s work, “The Water Crystals of Masaru Emoto”


This means if we visualize and then “FEEL” our intentions – as the Moon grows full – and I mean truly “FEEL” what it is we want, we can literally transform our feelings and intentions into reality in this energy. It’s my hope you can make sense of this and use the power of positive thinking and visualization to manifest your Dreams into physical reality; the ‘Full Moon’s’ energy is just a bit of Magic we need to make it happen. Let me know what you do with this info, and if you’re brave enough to test the waters?


The ‘Full Moons’ energy is both intense and loving. If you are aware of these energies, it gives you an opportunity every month for both emotional and spiritual growth. Here are some tips to follow during the ‘Full Moon’, that can help bring in more positive energies…and release old energies that just simply don’t work anymore in your life. Here are some simple guidelines to follow during the ‘Full Moon’:


1. Don’t allow arguing and don’t get angry!

The ‘Full Moon’ is a time of releasing and one should stay calm, breathe deeply and let things go. Try breathing through the moments that are difficult and be forgiving. If you just can’t let something go and must express yourself, try writing how you’re feeling down or telling a friend, and wait for at least a few days after the ‘Full Moon’ and then again write down how you’re feeling, see the comparison. Everything is going to be more intense and amplified. So just keep the energy flowing and moving in a happy, more uplifting direction.


2. Think positive thoughts!

During the ‘Full Moon’ each month, you have very powerful, strong energies working in your corner. So if you can balance your emotions and focus on positive thoughts, they’ll be energized and multiplied. If you spend even a short amount of time upon waking and before going to sleep, visualizing what you truly desire, or on what’s good or positive in your life while being thankful for your blessings…it can be magical! Remember “the attitude of gratitude.”


For example, write a gratitude list and some thank you notes to the Universe. Take walks and take in the beauty that is around you. Look in a mirror and say positive affirmations to yourself, (yes this really works.) Visualize positive thoughts and/or desires being sprinkled with “Moon Dust” and watch them grow like flowers in a garden.


3. Visualize your Dreams manifesting.

The ‘Full Moon’ is the right time to do manifestation work around releasing what is no longer working or serving you. So sharpen your techniques by using your imagination to set goals. Take the time to write what you would like to manifest and what energy you’d like to see gone or are done with. You could even make a Vision Board with pictures that represent your goals, it can be the actual goal or the word that represents your dreams and wishes, place them on a cork board, make a collage and hang it up on a wall so you can see it every day. This puts you in a constant state of awareness and helps bring the energies that you want to you. When you spend time focusing on your dreams and goals, or Setting Intentions as it’s called, during the ‘Full Moon’ it can give you an energy boost!


4. Practice Meditation alone or with others.

The ‘Full Moon’ pours out so much energy, that meditating during one can create a calm and still energy that is profoundly strong. Finding a sacred space to practice meditation can help tremendously. There’s a lot of groups that meditate during a ‘Full Moon’, so look for spiritual groups, centers, or online groups that come together to meditate. It can be a very powerful healing and manifest work.


5. Send others blessings, be of service, practice acts of kindness.

Having this powerful energy at your disposal makes a ‘Full Moon’ the opportune time to pay it forward! Send healing energies, forgiveness, white light and energy out… out to everyone, you can think of, including strangers. Send loving and kind energy to your friends and family. Then go deeper and send peaceful energy out to the world (which we need more than ever), think of the places in the world that are experiencing strife, hardships, poverty, or war. This can open doors for those who are in need.


Whatever you believe in or faith you might have you can’t deny the way you feel during a ‘Full Moon,’ so at the very least take one small step from your heart and try to work with this energy. Test your theories and have a Blessed Full Moon!

Venus in Capricorn

“Love Gets Serious” For All Zodiac Signs:


Venus the planet of love, business, money, and lust changes Zodiac signs today from optimistic, adventurous Sagittarius to realistic, accomplished Capricorn. Venus will be in this sign from February3rd, 2019 to March 1st, 2019. 


Venus moves fast folks around the Zodiac wheel in exact order, so we must take advantage of the energies she puts off while in the sign of Capricorn for about the next month. 


With this placement, our relationships tend to be more on the practical side. That’s because we tend to see people for who they are, and are not afraid to lay the cards out on the table, as we simply take things more seriously. Since we appreciate maturity in our relationships, we take our time when it comes to love and slowly warm up to others, but we can make long-term commitments. There will be more focus on business relationships as well during this time. 


It’s time to think about who you can count on. Do the people you care and love for follow through on their promises? The planet of LOVE and AFFECTION moves through the sign of Capricorn and draws your attention to the most real aspects of your relationships. No matter what someone says if they can’t commit to you and the relationship they are having with you it usually won’t last. So you will know true love when someone is making you the priority, and if they make some sort of sacrifice for you. Rid your life of those wondering Romeos and Juliets and open your heart to people you can trust.


Venus also is connected to our finances and what we value, from people to material things. Therefore, it’s the perfect time to get serious and make long-term plans in these parts of our lives. It’s a time to get real and take inventory around what’s coming in and out in your business and personal finances. 


If you are a Sun-Sign or Rising-Sign in Taurus or Libra, you may feel more focused and serious over the next month. As your heart may want to make more practical and attainable plans for the future. If you’re a Capricorn Sun-Sign or Rising-sign, as long as Venus is in your sign, you can attract more love, abundance, and beauty into your life. 


No matter what your Zodiac sign, enjoy this more practical, stabilized energy while it lasts.

Setting Intentions with the New Moon!


Setting Intentions under the New Moon in Aquarius for February 2019!

The New Moon will be quite energizing in the sign of Aquarius on Feb. 4th. This lunation brings in new beginnings and hopefully a fresh start to our lives. This means we should be focusing on helping heal the world by embodying positive energies for our future, with our hopes and dreams. This can push us out side of our comfort zones. This is a time of being awakened and we will see exactly what that looks like through our visions, and when we socialize and brainstorm.

This is a time when feelings need to be expressed in our friendships and partnerships, as we develop a more open mind. This is also a great time to push forward with whatever we were releasing around the Total Lunar Eclipse on Jan 21st. And this influence can help us finish up the little things that need to be sorted out, and put out of the way to make room for such the big cosmic shifts that are changing things so rapidly now.

This is an opportune time to ask the Universe for New Beginnings. The intentions that are set during a New Moon Ritual will set you on the right path towards your desires. Have a conversation with the Universe (meaning your higher-self, higher power, Guides, Angels, etc), and ask for the New Moon to open up the paths towards your deepest desires, or ask to be led to your manifestations.

Some of you might be asking, how does one set Intentions under the New Moon?

Well first you should set the mood, create the energy. Light some candles and burn some incense or sage, then perhaps play some calming meditative music. Get comfortable and simply write down your deepest desires, wishes and questions on a piece of paper or in a journal. Think about what would you like to manifest, create, and what energy your trying to bring into your life. If you don’t ask you will never know the answers.

As your doing a ritual or Setting your Intentions , here’s some helpful questions you can think about.

What are you choosing to have in your life?

What changes would you like to see in your life?

What are you or should you be letting go of?

How do you feel about what is happening in your life right now,?

What do you want to create around your long-term goals and in your future?

The next step is to visualize and feel what you’ve written down. Close your eyes and take several deep breaths, and imagine entering into your heart (the space you love from.) Now see yourself in the desire or dream your creating. For example, see yourself living in that new home, falling in love with that amazing Soul-Mate, getting that job you’ve always wanted, or driving that new car. You can’t just THINK IT you have to make sure and FEEL IT, as if you are already really experiencing what your visualizing out in this physical world.

Allow the Universe to show you what paths to follow over the next month, and allow the New Moon show you the paths you are supposed to be going down so you can live a fuller more happy life, and obtain the goals and dreams you already have.

The New Moon occurs at the following times below: but we can start our energy Intentions work Sunday Morning on Feb 3rd, when the Moon shifts into Aquarius, and IS NOT in the Void anymore.

Lucky February New Moon

by Rubys Readings


The New Moon this month is in the sign of Aquarius, and occurs on February 4th, 2019 which marks the beginning of a New Cycle.


This just might be the luckiest New Moon phase of the year! The Sun, Moon, and Mercury are making lovely connections to lucky Jupiter! Wow, that’s a whole lot of energy. This New Moon’s alignment with mindful Mercury and it’s sextile connection to lucky Jupiter can leave us feeling especially hopeful, and faithful, which inspires more positive thinking and idealism. This influence has us looking to the future with confidence and optimism. So our primary concern should be with the progress we can make and our freedom as well. 


This is a time of friendship, brotherhood & sisterhood, group activities, social pursuits, group projects, and for trying anything that has to do with humanitarian efforts or causes, so joining up with a group of like-minded individuals can go quite well. You may just have some wondrous New Beginnings if you get involved with some sort of group. Under this potent Aquarius energy, you have the opportunity to make exciting, progressive changes in your life. For some folks, the circumstances are such that we should be paying extra close attention to these matters. This is our chance to use our innovative ideas to come up with something very workable.


The Moon will be in Aquarius for two and half days, starting Sunday, Feb 3rd (morning time in the US), and we will feel more gracious, and willing to give in certain situations. Other folks will benefit without a doubt as the Moon forms a beautiful connection to Jupiter! 


FYI: Also the glorious Sun and King Saturn make a weaker but nice connection during this time, that can “cramp our style,” as this influence has a somewhat heavy effect on us, so we tend to have a more difficult time fully enjoying ourselves without feeling just a little bit guilty that we are neglecting our responsibilities in some way. Try to ignore those feelings and give and receive as much as you can all weekend through Tuesday if you can. 


The effects of the New Moon on Feb 4th, 2019 can last up to four weeks after it occurs, so right up to the New Moon on March 6th, 2019. So this is the best time to set up your Intentions and make out those Wish or Manifesting Lists. 



Times to start your energy or New Moon ritual work: 


Once the Moon shifts into the sign of Aquarius on Sunday, February 3rd early in the morning, we can start our energy work, and we will have until Tuesday, Feb. 5th that evening, when the Moon will slip back into its VOID cycle, before changing signs once again. 


Here’s The Times the New Moon Occurs below. 

  • CST February 4 at 3:04 pm
  • EST February 4 at 4:04 pm
  • PST February 4 at 1:04 pm
  • MDT February 4 at 2:04 pm

This New Moon is a great opportunity to break free from bad situations, or old habits or just anything that’s holding you back from living your life to its fullest potential. It’s a day to push your luck and look for new ideas and ways to change things. Take advantage of any opportunities that come your way, as some might show up you didn’t even expect.


“A whole lot of folks will be lucky under this New Moon especially the ones who choose to work with its energies.”


Good Luck and Happy New Moon!

Weekly Astro Update Jan. 19

by Rubys Readings


There are lots of changes going down this month to discuss.
On Tuesday, January 8th, mental Mercury gets into a tense Square connection with heated up Mars! It may feel like people just want to argue or be mad, so they don’t know how to hold back and shut up! Lots of you might feel like getting something off your chest, but I warn you if you do lose your cool it can get heated up in ways you didn’t even imagine and even out of control! 


If you were born during any of the times below, arguments are very possible! Avoid important or controversial conversations on this day if you know someone born during these times.


December 23 – 26

March 22 – 26

June 22 – June 26

September 21- 25


This is a very powerful time for transformation on Friday, and this weekend can be a strong time for endings and major transitions. This is also “Eclipse Season”, so those folks who have been waiting to crossover, might be ready to leave now, so say your final goodbyes now if you can. Some of you may feel a little depressed, but this too shall pass. Use this time instead to dig deeper and do some inner work on yourself!



Venus shifted into the sign of Sagittarius, so all you Sagittarius folks can have a rather good three weeks. If you were born between Nov 22nd and Dec 21st, you’ll notice people are sort of drawn to you and are more kind. Sudden good things can happen randomly. 


Venus is also in a nice trine with Mars in Aries and this helps all of us, no matter what sign you are, this can help you move forward with your plans and goals. Many of you will see some sort of increase in your life during this time, as money and love are expanding for many of you. Also, lucky Jupiter the planet of expansion is in Sagittarius, it’s home sign, Venus meets up with Jupiter on January 22nd. This is a big deal and it’s a very lucky time for many of us. So hopefully look forward to some good fortune coming your way soon!


If you know your Astrology Birth Chart look for something good to happen in whatever part of your chart, the 16 degrees of Sagittarius falls in. If you’re not sure then order a One Question Reading and get a Mini Reading about this lucky and lovely aspect. Just email or message me, “Where’s my luck this month?” and I will send you an answer back via email after I receive your payment. This energy will be strong and around for several days and maybe even a week or so. To learn where these influences fall in your personal “Astrology Birth Chart” or how this time is best spent for you.


Another good piece of news is that Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune are all now in their home signs. And all these planets are moving forward and are Not I’m Retrograde! Woo-hoo! In fact, there are no Retrograde planets until March, so it’s time to move forward with plans and goals. This is a lucky time folks, make the most of it and take advantage of these energies and make something happen. Don’t miss this time, it’s an opportunity for us all!



If you forgot to write out your New Years Resolution or just want to add some more energy to the work you’ve already done, there’s another day coming up that is great to start your resolutions, but this is only if you want to release or rid of something, someone, or a situation in your life. For example, if you want to release some sort of bad habit then mark your calendars folks for January 21st! It’s a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse with some serious extra energy, and it can help you with your resolutions if you do some energy release work. And don’t look at this as a time of losing something, see it as a time that you are releasing something instead!


Wondering what happened to the Holidays? Now that Jupiter is in the fire sign of Sagittarius, and all the planets are moving forward, life is moving rather quickly. The good news is you can get an awful lot done this year, as the calendar moves fast. So it’s a good time to be prepared and set yourself up for success.


Write out some resolutions around what you want to release starting now, as the FULL MOON LUNAR ECLIPSE comes together on January 21st or 22nd, (depending on what time zone you live in) in the sign of Leo! This is a going to be a fast-moving month with all the planets mainly in Fire Signs! So get moving and start manifesting!

Venus Re-Enters Scorpio: Intense, Passionate, Committed

By Rubys Readings



Venus Re-Enters Scorpio: Intense, Passionate, Committed


September 9-October 31, and then December 2, 2018-January 7, 2019


Venus enters Scorpio once again, this is a time of intensity, passion, and commitment in our relationships and around our financial affairs.


This is conveniently perfect timing with the Winter Season right around the corner as the mistress herself moves into sultry Venus, and any skeletons in your romantic closets can fall right out, so we can be more secretive about both money and love.


This influence can bring intimate encounters with someone sexy, magnetic, and maybe even irresistible. This can tie the bonds between lovers and friends on a soul level, and also is a time of healing and transformation in our relationships! But often to get to the point of healing you have to pull out the not so fun emotional stuff first and do some serious analyzing. 


Venus in soulful, seductive Scorpio has the power to draw out what we love and what is superficial in our love lives and concerning our financial affairs, so secrets are often exposed. If you are cheating on a lover or partner, may I suggest you figure out what you want during this time, as this energy is going to draw out the truth around things like jealousy, secrets, abuse, and misguided behavior! Under the energy of the Scorpion we like to get to the bottom and below the surface of situations so we can examine issues of power, fear, sex, and desire more so than usual. Astrologers seem to consider Scorpio a tough sign for beautiful and sweet Venus, as Scorpio is not as concerned with superficiality and prefers chasing after love that will transform. So just like the Scorpion Queen herself, you may feel more like getting below the surface to examine things deeply in your relationships during this time.


Venus rules over our relationships and is more sociable, friendly, and affectionate. Scorpio is about passion and likes to go deeply into love. This means we might crave more meaningful and intense emotional experiences while Venus is in Scorpio. Depth takes hold and becomes more important than intimacy, and pushes us to give up on just dating as we desire something more long-lasting and romantic instead. The only problem is people are going to again experience the darker side of Venus which is quite wild, just think about what people do in the name of love sometimes, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows under this energy, it can get dark folks and you can get more obsessive when Venus is in this sign and jump way to fast when it comes to matters of the heart. 


While Venus is in Scorpio our inner detective is on high-alert and wants to figure out what’s lurking in the shadows in our relationships. Those thoughts start to play more and more in our heads, and we tend to start looking at all the signs around us to see why we don’t feel at peace in our relationships. This can make us act obsessive and we can feel more paranoid or jealous than usual under this influence. It’s a time to dig deeper beneath the surface and discover what we are intuitively picking up on and get to the truth of any matter, the light is going to shine on what’s really going on. But we are more willing to stick things out to find some sort of common ground in our relationships and with friends, and co-workers or business partners. So we can either make things work or let it go! This is a time for a major reality check in our relationships if we like it or not. 


Under this influence, we might experience the more Dark Side of Venus, which can turn her influence into something more mysterious and secretive, therefore we aren’t going to feel like playing nice like we have been while Venus was in the sign of Libra. Instead, we want to dig deeper and spark some sort of much-needed change in our relationships and around any issues we are having with money or our financial affairs. Just think of the world “Transform,” and that means things can get rough as we enter into a time of deep analysis and psychotherapy in our relationships.


Venus in Scorpio also brings out concerns around money and any power struggles you may be involved in. Those little subtle issues that you ignored tend to be more obvious and exposed under this energy. How our money is spent becomes a bigger deal now, especially in our partnerships where financial resources are shared. This also seems to be a time when we have a much stronger interest in making financial investments and when we can make powerful decisions about loans, insurance, or in any area of our lives that concerns money. (FYI: Mercury is still in Retrograde currently so give it to the teens of December before making any big investments.)


While Venus is in Scorpio we can feel intense and this can end up feeling like a heavy time emotionally, but it can be an amazingly transformative time. All of this super intense energy leads to stronger bonds if you take on the challenge of this transit, but it can be hard on us both emotionally and physically, but you can end up changing things for the better.

This is also a sexy time that could end up bringing you and your partner even closer together or help you meet a soulmate that connects with you on a very deep soul level. Either way, all we can do is ride the wave of this energy and keep ourselves and compulsions in check.

November Full Moon


By Rubys Readings

WIshing you a Happy Thanksgiving!

The Moon is Full in Gemini on November 23, 2018

The Full Moon occurs as the Sun in Sagittarius forms a tense opposition to the Moon in Gemini.


Full Moon details: Here’s when the Full Moon will come together, and for those folks who like to Set Intentions with the Full Moon, the Moon will go VOID late Saturday night or early Sunday morning!

  • Pacific – November 22, 9:39 PM
  • Mountain – November 22, 10:39 PM
  • Central – November 22, 11:39 PM
  • Eastern – November 23, 12:39 AM

This means there is a push and pull situation between the signs energies and it affects each and every one of us. 



The Sign of Gemini is about the lower mind and Sagittarius energy represents the higher mind. 


A Moon in Gemini’s lesson helps us learn how to think more logically, while the Sun in Sagittarius is persuasive and helps us think in a more open-minded way, and more far-reaching. 


The Sign of Sagittarius is about the quest for meaning and knowledge and coming up with ideas that expand our here and now experience or at the moment. Gemini is quite comfy in its own environment or neighborhood, while Sagittarius is stimulated and wants us to go explore and have adventures. If we ignore our feelings either one of these energies provokes within ourselves things can get thrown off. Ideally, if we try to find a balance between these two energies, then this is what the FULL MOON wants us to do.



This Full Moon is all about communication, our behavior, attitude, and our sense of adventure. There might be a feeling like something has been building up inside of you, especially with so many planets in Retrograde now or just coming out! So now is the time when the energy of the Cosmos is hitting its peak and we must express how we feel! Over the next few weeks, we will probably learn more about what these feelings were about more so, and what they mean for us and our lives.


But for now it’s going to be difficult to not express how we are feeling through communication, and just keeping our mouths shut might prove to be very difficult, not only because of the Full Moon but also due to mental Mercury (Gemini’s Ruling Planet) in Retrograde, under the most expressive sign in the Zodiac, Sagittarius! This means we have a stronger than usual need to express how we are thinking and feeling out loud! This can be problematic, however, because during an emotional Full Moon we aren’t logical we are overwhelmed with emotions and therefore we come off way more irrational, and our feelings can bubble up and get the best of us. With Mercury right now in Sagittarius, we can communicate these feelings out loud and live right in other folks faces, and we may not have the normal filters to think first before reacting!



Rubys Rants

Bottom line folks it can be a weekend of frustrating conversations with people telling it like it is, at least according to them anyway, and that also means misunderstandings. It’s important to think before speaking if at all possible during this time and I know I say that more often than I probably should, but heed my warning on this one, these energies are tense and intense feeling! But look at your possibilities and what’s readily available to you at this time, and since this Full Moon comes together the night of Thanksgiving basically we should be already focused on what we are Thankful for. These influences can be strong and throw us off our game, but I have always believed if you set your mind to it, you can learn from the planets more challenging energies or connections. Remember this “LIKE ATTRACTS LIKE”, so whatever it is you focus on especially during a lite up FULL MOON, is what you will bring to you. I understand some of you aren’t doing well in life, and it’s so difficult just to think something good can happen, and I am not one to be so idealistic all the time that I don’t see the reality of a situation, but I also know if you direct your energy out to the world and the Universe, asking and even expecting good things, then eventually something better will show up! Be your own observer and pay attention to your thoughts and how you are looking at life, and make sure your next thought is about something good! 



The Full Moon is a time when things come to a close and there is an energy of hope and fulfillment of that which was started back during the last New Moon a few weeks ago. It’s an emotional time that is romantic and full of relationship issues. The Moon is Full and bright in the sky during this time, and that is symbolic of the “illumination” that is occurring in our own lives. Or when things come out into the open and are brought to light. However, again these feelings we have now and revelations are based off our emotions and they can suddenly erupt and like a light bulb coming on, we just realize something, have an Ah-Ha moment as it’s called, or an epiphany of some kind. This is a time of awareness and knowingness! It is a time to usually express ourselves and to let things out into the open. Of course, we may want to try extra hard this time around to use some special care when doing so, knowing that what we are communicating or expressing is not particularly rational as of yet. 


This Full Moon is complicated and personal for us. Being in the Sign of Gemini we are more curious and seek out ideas and information like crazy. This can also bring on a sudden awareness into our lives as I mentioned, but we can feel rushed, hurried or like things are rather urgent with a” must know right now” kind of mentality. You may feel like you need to get important messages to others, and to finish some sort of project and make announcements. Just think before you say anything! Travel and communication are our main focus during this time, but again Mercury is Retrograde and is Gemini’s ruling planet and this causes tension in these areas of our life. 



Mercury is Retrograde and the Full Moon is in a tense Square with warlike Mars during this Full Moon. The Sun is also heading towards a connection to Jupiter, and Mercury is heading to meet up with Jupiter and the Sun, while it’s in Retrograde. All of this suggests that we’ll be looking at past matters in new ways, but also acting impulsively which can really cause problems, so remind yourself to MOVE SLOWLY DURING THIS TIME! 


Thanksgiving Forecast

On Thanksgiving Day, the Sun moves into the sign of Sagittarius so there can be a light-hearted energy to the Holiday. The Moon will be VOID which creates a relaxed energy, so lots of folks falling asleep lol. With the Moon in earthy Taurus, an indulgent energy that truly enjoys food, it’s likely a whole lot of folks will overeat (which is expected) but some of you are apt to fill your plates a second time, and then have dessert and still make room for leftovers and maybe a midnight snack. If you are cooking this year, seriously make extra food.



HEADS UP!

As we get closer to midnight Thanksgiving night the Moon will shift into more busy Gemini and will become FULL on the 23rd! A Sun and Jupiter connection can cause overspending if you are already not feeling it. This means folks who are going out for Black Friday sales are going to probably open their wallets way more than usual. Many Astrologers are predicting record sales this year for retailers on Friday and Saturday. If you plan on traveling this weekend, be extra careful as people are a bit confused, with the Full Moon and Mercury in Retrograde it’s all too easy for accidents to occur! Tempers can rise quickly as well with warrior Mars testing the Moon, Sun, and Jupiter over the weekend.



Next week things start to look so much nicer folks, so work together, as lots of things in spite of Mercury in Retro will run smoothly once again. All of these shifts can create a lot of energy that can throw us off center. So pay attention, take your time, ask lots of questions if need be, and if someone is getting upset or frustrated remember we are all in this energy together, and under Mercury’s weirdness things aren’t so black or white. You can defuse a lot of problems if you simply are patient, flexible, and understanding, otherwise you don’t want a Holiday Mess. Focus on the deeper meaning of Thanksgiving which is to simply be with our loved ones and give thanks for who and what we have in our lives.


Have a safe and good Holiday.
Wishing all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving.

End of November’s Astro News!!


By Rubys Readings 


It’s time to start listening to your messages, I’m talking about the messages the Universe, the Cosmos or whatever you want to call it is trying to send to you. This week there’s going to be many signs from the Universe and they can show up in the most unusual, bizarre, and strange ways. But there will be some that are very clear. Many people believe that if they get a sign more than once especially if you get them twice, and definitely if you get them three times, that is not just a coincidence, it’s not something you should just ignore because it truly means something.


Good News!

We have been under an extremely intense energy, that’s also been sort of a sad really since October 3rd, with Venus the planet of love & money in Retrograde. But as of the 16th, Venus has gone direct again finally, so relationships and our finances can finally get back on track again. If you broke up with somebody during this time and you’re hoping to mend your relationships perhaps, you probably have more of a fighting chance with Venus back and moving the right way again. This Transit can possibly help you reconcile, but if that’s not always how these things work out, so if that’s what you are experiencing then the relationship was likely never meant to be or was supposed to end. So it’s been interesting but it’ll be even more interesting to see how this plays out over the coming weeks ahead because many of my clients and blog readers have had to come to terms with their relationships and make some very hard choices. Venus in Retrograde brought back a lot of old and past lovers, but most of these relationships didn’t probably work out, especially if they were brand new, but there was a reason that you needed to hang out with that person and I’m sure if you don’t already know you will understand it all soon enough!

Mercury went into its complete Retrograde cycle on the 16th! And this Mercury in Retrograde is proving to be quite interesting thus far, it’s time to double-check everything you’re doing even if you think you’ve already done so, at least through December the 6th when this cycle ends. There will be a period of time after December 6th where communications can be kind of wonky, so for two weeks after we just have to get adjusted to Mercury going back to its normal pace, while it’s in it’s after Retrograde “Shadow Period.”



A Look Ahead

The Full Moon occurs on November 23/34, in the sign of Gemini. And you may gain some sort of clarity about an issue in your life. Make sure to “Set Intentions” and this time make it more so around what you are wanting to release and let go of in your life, it can be anything from people, situations, to behaviors.

Make sure to “Set Intentions” and this time make it more so around what you are wanting to release and let go of in your life, it can be anything from people, situations, to behaviors. 


Look for Signs 

Many of you have already been dreaming about your loved ones who have crossed over. 


With the Full Moon in Gemini approaching and Neptune in the sign of Pisces moving forward the same day, many of you will have some sort of visit from your relatives or loves ones in your dreams. It’s actually also pretty common around the Holiday Season and especially during Full Moon’s that people experience some sort of encounter with their loved ones who are passed. 


Often our loved ones come to visit us with messages, but sometimes they just come to check on us as well. And due to how much they are on our minds during the Holidays there’s much more activity when we miss them the most. So look for these visitations to happen more often as the energy of the Full Moon builds starting November 20th until it peaks on the 23rd. This also may include paranormal activity so the spirits can be a bit restless right now, as we did just get through Halloween and the Sun is still in Scorpio, hence it being still Scorpio Season, so the Veils between this world and the other side remains low right through the 25th or so! 


Secrets Exposed! 

The planet Neptune is also going direct on November 24th, so since June 18th, it’s been in Retrograde as well. What’s been hidden, unseen, or unknown is being revealed now, it’s hard to hide from our secrets. The cats out of the bag! So if you’ve already figured something out, then perhaps some of your secrets are out in the open. But there’s still time for some unexpected news or something hidden to come to light. 
Have a good week folks and remember if you have to express yourself right now be tactful and think about what you are saying first!

Mercury in Retrograde – How to Be Productive

Mercury Retrograde 2018


Mercury Retrograde 2018


The last Mercury Retrograde of 2018 will be in effect from November 16th through December 3rd, 2018. 


Sometimes the Universe gives us a break even though it doesn’t always feel that way. One thing the Cosmos always does is create balance. So the energies get slowed down a bit so we can have the opportunity to catch up. Mercury in Retrograde (Rx for short) is that time out, it’s an opportunity to get caught up with life, and a time to unplug and take a long deep breath. It’s also a great time to take off from work if at all possible, maybe taking a little vacay and focus on reworking anything that needs to be done, or finishing projects that were never done to completion, while Mercury rules over our minds and thoughts. When this fast moving planet goes into Retrograde we start to perceive things in a very different and unique way.
Mercury in Rx like all Retrograde plants is happening for a reason, this isn’t some new Astrological fad! Planets have always gone into Retrograde cycles and will continue to. So every once in a while we get a chance to pause or stop and get some rest. This is the time to review your life and the paths you’re on. What this Mercury in Rx cycle does is help us to breathe, be still, relax, and review. The main thing to understand as this cycle takes a hold that it’s a time to review your life and redo anything that needs to be done. It is time to re-search, re-think, re-visit, re-connect, and to get re-organized.


What Not To Do during Mercury in Retrograde:

  • Don’t start brand new projects
  • Do not get into arguments, avoid critical folks and tense people or situations.
  • Do Not Sign Contracts or New Agreements
  • Avoid Travel- Do Not take misunderstandings personal. Our communication is foggy and cloudy. 

What To do during Mercury in Retrograde:

  • Redo, Rework, Review, Research, so basically go over things again and wrap up old business and projects.
  • Double Check the Facts and any info gathered. 
  • Revisit what you need to, like your work.
  • Reconnect with the folks that matter if you’ve had issues or not.- Backup Computers and any data you want to keep saved, usually start this process two weeks prior to the actual Retro Cycle.
  • Reorganize your daily life routines.
  • Declutter.- Reflect and practice spiritual work.
  • Release what’s been holding you back or blocking you, let go of what no longer is working especially in your intimate relationships.  



There can be positive things that come from a Mercury in Retrograde cycle that you just didn’t think about before. Like throwing out old stuff you no longer need or use, and organizing your life. Stay focused on any past opportunities and reconsider them now, see if they’re still an option, and try to let go of any computer glitches or electronic snafus you might be experiencing.


Mercury is currently in the sign of Sagittarius and this is strong wild energy. Therefore we will be in for some wild twists and turns along the way as our big ideas come out in the open. The sign of Sagittarius, after all, is the sign that shoots for the stars and thinks anything is possible. If we take this cycle to plan and strategize we can make things happen once it’s over! As we go back to revisit and revise our plans we can make some interesting new discoveries. 


Since it’s the Holiday Season, it’s important to keep a paper trail of whatever you purchase. Mercury is known as the “trickster” of the Zodiac, so it likes to play tricks that make us change our minds suddenly and this causes confusion. Lots of people come back around from our past including ex-lovers and friends. Mercury’s influence seems to bring these chance meetings together! But that doesn’t mean it’s fated to be together.


So our focus should be on re-organizing and reflecting. We see the world a little differently during this time, and through these filters, we can have some very important inner revelations. It may not be as easy to communicate under this influence, but remember not to try and rationalize everything. Logic is out and intuition is in! Mercury Rx periods can be times of heightened inner-awareness, so doing things like meditation, keeping a journal, reworking old plans, reviewing, or reconnecting to your past can be quite helpful. Mercury Rx is also a powerful time to study, particularly for returning to old studies and re-learning or refreshing knowledge around a subject that’s already been taken.


This Mercury in Retrograde cycle can also help you think back to a part of your recent past, and reconnect you to an old dream or goal to follow through on once this cycle is over, but write it all down for now. Someone from your past might get a hold of you for a second chance or opportunity, but that doesn’t mean it’s meant to be, usually, it doesn’t work out for the long-run. But it’s nice to reconnect and perhaps sort out any unresolved issues you might have. 


Because we are perceiving things in a different way, the truth tends to come out, and you just might notice or find some kind of detail you overlooked or didn’t catch before, which can be very helpful. This cycle can bring clarity and help you move past any restrictions or blocks standing in your way. Mercury begins retracing its steps in direct motion from December 6 (its shadow ends on January).
