Rubys Astro Readings Holiday Eclipses & The Great Conjunction
There are two life Changing Eclipses over the holiday season in 2020. They are in the Signs of Gemini and Sagittarius, but affect each and every one of us! Eclipses are always about endings, so they often create shifts in our lives that are necessary. The part of your life these energies affect depends on what part of your personal Astrology Birth Chart they are cruising through, and whatever points they activate will affect your life through June of 2021.
The first Eclipse on November 30 is a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in the sign of Gemini. The second Eclipse is a New Moon Solar Eclipse on December 14 in Sagittarius.
Babies who come into the world during the Full Moon Eclipse through December 21 arrive during the Winter Solstice time. These souls will be wonderful teachers for their generation. They can end up making some amazing contributions to the world. Also, the babies who are born around the Eclipse can end up being trendsetters or important in one way or another and often are quite popular.
Eclipse Information Full Moon Eclipse: November 30 in Gemini.
This Eclipse affects all the Signs in the Zodiac, but especially Gemini, Sagittarius, Pisces, and Virgo or anyone with those signs in prominent parts of their Birth Charts. As I mentioned, Lunar Eclipses bring about endings, so the Solar Eclipse in December is when something new begins.
Full Moon Eclipses are a time of completion. Answers randomly show up, especially about problems you’ve been dealing with or working on since last spring. This lunation is a time when truths are revealed, so pay attention to your dreams starting now. We can be quite emotional during this Full Moon Eclipse, as it shines a light on what has been hidden, regressed, or kept secret!
Solar Eclipse December 14 in Sagittarius
Solar Eclipses can bring sudden events that cause disruptions. There can be chaos and crisis like moments that come out of nowhere. However, there can be good effects from them as well.
A Solar Eclipse is basically a very powerful New Moon. It’s a good time to make plans for the future. Set your intentions and make out those Wish Lists. This Eclipse will affect Sagittarius, Aries, and Leo in a big way. But of course, it affects all the Signs of the Zodiac.
If this Eclipse happens to impact your life strongly in one way or another, and usually, this is more positive, but not always. If your birthday happens to fall around or on the day of the Eclipse on December 14, it’s going to be very strong and can create big changes.
Eclipse Update Eclipses occur every 19 years. So the solar and lunar Eclipses occured at the same points in 2001. You might want to think about what was happening back then. There can be some similarities occurring between now and then, and you could heal something in a big way.
You just have to remember that an Eclipse magnifies things, especially that are related to the house it goes through in your Astrology Birth Chart. So those particular areas of your life are going to demand more of your focus, attention, and energy. This transit will last from this holiday season until next June! Expect new doors to open and for big changes to affect our lives, and hopefully, it helps lead us to new paths that give us better opportunities.
The Great Conjunction As we inch towards the end of the year, we enter the peak of a major Cosmic event. The Great Conjunction between Jupiter and Saturn in Earth signs ends a 200 year Era.
Under these earthy energies, our focus shifted to material security and resources. And we tend to be more resistant to change, which we’re already experiencing, are the old ways versus the new on a global level. But this is about to end, and a new Era based on Air Sign energy is creating a breakup of our established orders.
The Great Conjunction occurs in December. Jupiter and Saturn both move into the Air sign Aquarius next month; this will bring some dramatic changes to our lives. What really sets the tone for sudden and shocking changes is that the planet Uranus is also forming an aspect with Jupiter around the same time. So will need to be mindful and careful during December and January, so pay attention to your surroundings.
Jupiter and Uranus come together and help eliminate old social structures but bring new challenges and opportunities with them. As we inch closer to the Great Conjunction and the Jupiter/Uranus aspect, it can be very important to ask yourself what you can release or should let go of to help create the energy and space for something new in your life.
This Cosmic shift is very important and has been forming all year long, so we have already been experiencing the powerful energy of the Great Conjunction! It will not come back together again under Earth Signs for decades.
Venus enters Scorpio Nov 21st – December 15th 2020
It’s a time of intensity, passion, and deeper commitment to our relationships and financial affairs.
With the headmistress Scorpio in sultry Venus, any skeletons in our romantic closets can fall right out. So we tend to be more secretive about love and money. This influence can bring an intimate encounter with someone sexy, magnetic, and maybe even irresistible. It can tie the bonds between lovers and friends on a deeper soul level. It’s a time of healing and transformation in our relationships. Still, if we want to get to a recovery point, we must first pull out our deeper emotional stuff and do some serious analysis.
Venus in seductive Scorpio has the power to draw out what’s superficial in our love lives and our financial affairs. Secrets are often exposed as cheating lovers, or partners are discovered. This energy brings out the truth and wants us to deal with the jealousy, secrets, abuse, or misguided behavior in our lives.
With Venus in Scorpio, we want to get to the bottom of our problems and go below the surface to examine our issues more deeply. Especially in situations involving power, fear, and sex. Venus is in determinet while in Scorpio, so it’s not concerned with superficiality and prefers the chase in love, so it wants to transform us.
Venus rules over our relationships, so it is a more affectionate and social energy kind of energy. Scorpio is about passion and likes to go into the depths of love. This means we might crave more meaningful and intense emotional experiences. It takes us into something deeper, as love and intimacy become equally important. This idea of dating isn’t as comfortable because we’re searching for long-lasting romantic encounters instead. This energy can help us build on our committed relationships as well.
The shadow side of Venus’s energy is more wild and lusty. Take into consideration what people will do in the name of love, as it can get dark. People can become obsessive and paranoid. This influence is mysterious and secretive, so we are not in the mood to play nice. We want to dig deeper into our emotional wounds to spark some change.
Our inner detective is on high alert and wants to figure out what’s lurking in the Shadows. Paranoia can set in as suspicions start to play in our minds, we may start looking for signs of betrayal in our relationships and closer circle. This transit can help us discover what we are intuitively picking up on and help us get to the bottom of our relationship problems. This energy shines a light on the truth and what’s really happening. Even though we usually are more willing to stick things out, and find common ground in our relationships, reality checks are strong and can break or strengthen existing bonds.
“Scorpio energy wants to transform us, which means it can get rough as we enter into a time of deep analysis and psychotherapy in our relationships, under the Venus is in Scorpio transit!”
Venus in Scorpio also brings out concerns involving money and business, including power struggles and power plays. Private issues we tend to ignore suddenly become more obvious during this time and are often exposed! How we spend our money is important, especially in partnerships where financial resources are shared. It’s an interesting time for financial investments, as we can make effective decisions concerning things like loans, insurance, or banking.
Venus, in Scorpio’s intense energy, can feel emotionally burdening, but it also can transform us and help our relationships evolve. And this can lead to strengthening bonds if we take on the challenges of this transit, even if it’s rough at times. It’s a sexy time that can bring our partners closer or help us even meet a soulmate. Try to keep your compulsive thoughts in check and enjoy this energy!
The New Moon is in the sign of Scorpio on November 14th or 15th, depending on your Time Zone, but is felt now and throughout the weekend. With both the Sun and Moon in the sign of Scorpio, it is super strong and potent. And can be a powerful time to work on yourself.
Think about doing some New Moon energy work. Simply, make out a Wish List or write down what you want to start or begin under this New Moon energy! Set Intentions! New Moons always bring New Beginnings, but this particular New Moon is all wrapped up nice and tight in the sign of endings, Scorpio, the sign of the Zodiac that represents resurrection. We may have to fall or fail, or let something end in our lives, only to rebuild ourselves anew! We then can rise like the stories of the Pheonix and create a new better life for ourselves in one way or another.
It is also Eclipse Season, so our Moon work can involve releasing and letting go, perhaps finish or close something in your life. Make wishes and wish-lists, write about whatever you want! Release a situation, person, or what you should let-go, this also can include worn-out old beliefs and behaviors. This New Moon energy is transformational and can be life-changing.
In the weeks ahead, we’ll be working on our self-mastery skills. It’s a good time to discover what parts of our lives feel out of control. We can release our inner demons with things like addiction or debts and free ourselves from emotional burdens. This energy produces an opportunity to get rid of any excess “stuff” we have been holding on to in our lives, be it material or spiritual. We may feel moved to dig much deeper when it comes to life’s mysteries rather than staying content with the status quo. So it’s important to get in touch with what motivates you, and what will enhance your feelings for intimacy, forgiveness, and meaning. We have a deeper need to feel a sense of purpose and depth in our lives and within our souls. We can truly move forward by doing things during this cycle to develop a new idea, project, or relationship.
Look for ways to release any fears of confrontation or emotionally heavy situations. This New Moon energy can help us learn by taking us out of our comfort zone and making us uncomfortable. So even if a situation is tense it can lead us into psychological healing.
This New Moon is harmonizing with Jupiter, Neptune, and Pluto as well. We can quickly discover support and motivation from within to accomplish our goals, as this energy has our back and can help us set goals. It gives us the drive and imagination to make things work.
Still, during the New Moon loving Venus is forming a tense Square to Pluto, the planet of transformation and lord of the underworld. Goddess, Venus also squares off with over the top Jupiter! These influences can cause major disruptions, which can lead us into exploring our true motivations. What makes us tick! With the TRUTH out of the bag, we can understand the deeper meanings of any challenging situation that comes our way.
It’s important to keep ourselves in check when it comes to exaggeration, so we shouldn’t go out of our way to seek approval, love, or more meaning in our lives, or we can blow things way out of proportion. We can overstate, boost, and brag. As we express ourselves and our feelings in a big way. Watch for doing things in excess and stirring up drama just to get attention, as we can give certain situations much more time and energy than their worth. We might think we can get noticed through exaggerating, but this will surely backfire.
These Cosmic transits can also magnify or boost our insecurities, which means we can feel suspicious, jealous, or paranoid. Socially the interactions we have can be intense and can provoke tense feelings with those involved. Any relationship drama that comes up can get in the way of our goals with our lovers or partners. Our financial affairs can also have major highs and lows, big wins, or big losses, so choose wisely!
Warning Possible Triggers: You May Need to Skip this Part if you are Sensitive!
The Covid19 Virus is surging strongly right now, as Astrologically it’s peaking from the long-term Saturn/Pluto and Jupiter/Pluto Conjunctions that have been occurring all year long! Now with somany planets in Scorpio, and Eclipse Seasonunderway things are out of control! The energy of the Zodiac Sign Scorpio and Eclipse Season, both are about Endings! However, it also helps us to rebuild and manifest a new way of handling the Virus.

Please take the necessary precautions we’ve been warned about repeatedly to help bring this surge down. And please just wear your mask around other people! The good news is the Cosmic influences that helped bring the Virus in are now finally over! So once we get past Eclipse Season, we will start to see a major shift and even more so into the New Year. As we get through the final dramatic months of 2020, do your best to be extra careful and work together.
I know this is a bit late but it’s been a wild week! I figured I would post the whole thing since much of the Astro Influences listed are still affecting us today and throughout November. 😉
Nov 1st – Nov 30th
November is another fairly wild month once again on the Astrological front. With Mercury, Mars, and Neptune all turning direct from Retrograde, the energies will be a bit confusing. There will be a constant push and pull kind of feeling taking us over. And there is a partial Eclipse coming together, which means business.
Mercury turned direct from its Retrograde phase, which set the tone for November on the 4th.
Which just happens to be the same day as the US Election. This can cause major confusion! There will be delays and opposition when it comes to the results. Still, this exciting energy provided by the Universe is a confusing time as it already is! So this just adds another layer of mental fog and stress.
Also, tense Mars is still in Aries and Retrograde. Mars starts up its aggressive Squares to the ongoing Stellium in Capricorn, which will be stronger in early December. Luckily, both Mercury and Venus are in Libra, for the time being, promoting diplomacy and justice; this will hopefully bring some more positivity into the mix for the time being.
By Mid-November, the Cosmic vibes get deeper and intense. So life is extreme, and our lessons can be more transformative with intellect Mercury rolling back into the sign of Scorpio on November 10th. Our intuition is strong, and we can experience profound insights into our lives and problems. With Mercury in Scorpio, the truth comes out, as this influence tends to open up all that is hidden, kept secret, regressed, and forgotten. We are more focused and driven, so we should use this energy to our advantage. We will be discovering other folk’s motivations, and the deeper the problems are buried, the better, as searching for what’s wrong is mentally satisfying.
The New Moon on November 15th is actually in the sign of Scorpio as well. Jupiter will still be in Capricorn and will conjunct Saturn the same day. That’s big stuff! These two heavy-hitting planets meeting up can be extremely heavy feeling and burdensome, so that we can feel quite drained by this influence. We may not be able to see the future possibilities as easily, as we may be quite focused on the negative. There can be restrictions imposed on us, and supplies can be reduced, especially with COVID-19 being at an all-time high now! We may be forced once again to lockdown! As this transit means business. But we also can discover brilliant ways to start new projects and solve problems because, after all, this is a New Moon. New Moon’s are new beginnings front and center, always! This could mean we have to say goodbye to something or realize that a chapter of our life might be coming to an end so that we can move forward.
On the 21st, Venus enters the sign of Scorpio, and love and relationships can get intense. Our relationships can become emotionally unstable. This a time of profound emotional growth and wild and crazy intimacy! Venus, while in Scorpio, brings intensity to our connections with other people of all kinds. There’s a carnal desire to understand why we are in certain close relationships, especially ones that are intimate and to do with business. This influence could ultimately be the driving force that reads some relationships apart.
Then, on the 21st, the Sun enters sunny feeling Sagittarius. Our focus shifts to our outer experiences and our desires grow stronger to have an adventure! We want to reach out to the world and connect to something bigger than ourselves. We are searching for what’s better or more expanded and are seeking a deeper knowledge than before. We can have more energy, and our self-confidence can grow stronger during this time. It’s important, to tell the truth, or at least your truth, and be more straightforward, outgoing, and idealistic as our minds are more open. Trying to keep things fair and less judgmental is important. Our personality is large, and we may need open spaces to be free and explore, so we enjoy outdoor activities. This is a great time for exercise of any kind.
And at the end of November, the energies will gain intensity once again when a Lunar Eclipse comes together in the sign of Gemini. The Full Moon is a partial Eclipse penumbral, to be precise, so luckily, this means not as intense! This Eclipse can present us with an issue that has us looking in many different directions and leaves folks feeling confused. Which means they are unable to make wise decisions. With the Sun in Sagittarius, we must look at the big picture and make sure our goals are aligned with our longer-term plans to head in the right direction to meet success.
This is an opportune time to ask the Universe to release whatever energies you need to let go or get rid of, or what doesn’t serve you anymore. The intentions that are set during a “Full Moon” will set you on the right path towards your hopes, wishes, and desires. This is the best time to do some energy work and release old pains and experiences that have held you down or blocked you up! It’s time to get the old stuff out so the good stuff can come in!
During the Full Moon, we often experience an energy shift, so we must release the old energies to open new energies up, so we can get on the right path in life that will help us bring new and fresh energy along with it.
What to Release under a Full Moon:
* Lower energies
* Negative patterns or bad habits
* Unhealthy situations or relationships
What to work on during the Full Moon:
*Letting go of both the people and situations that aren’t working anymore. And sometimes this is just an attitude or thought
*Clearing space for new energies to come in
*Being GRATEFUL for what you already have and what will be
This is the time when you should have a conversation with the Universe, (your higher power, Spirit Guides, Angels, elders, God, etc!) whatever you believe in! Ask for the “Full Moon” to help illuminate the path that leads you towards your deepest desires. You can simply ask to be led down a path towards your dreams and goals during your Setting Intentions rituals.
Patience is important! Remember to allow the time needed for the Moon to light the way, as it doesn’t always happen right away. But remember often this kind of work is magical and sometimes the things you want or ask for just show up! The “Full Moon” illuminates the truth and is symbolic for helping us see all that has been hidden, secret, tucked away, or suppressed. So ask for the truth to be revealed during this time.
What if you don’t know how to “Set Intentions” under the Full Moon. Follow the steps below to learn how:
Step One: Clear your Sacred Space
Clear the energy of the area or room you’re using to do your Full Moon work. You are simply calling in positive energies to work with. Burn some Sage or Incense and clear the energies. Think about where you’re going to perform your energy work. Because we create an energy vortex wherever we sit, sleep or do spiritual work! This is why you feel so comfy in your favorite chair, it feels safe and secure because you have created an energy vortex in that spot or space.
Step Two: Set the Atmosphere
Set the mood or your Full Moon Ritual. Burn some special incense, light some candles (colors do have different meanings) and play some mood or ambient music that helps you feel spiritually connected to the Universal energy you see tapping into. This can be a very different experience for everyone. Just makes sure to use whatever tools make you feel calm and peaceful. Because that’s the kind of energy you want to bring into your life.
Step Three: Let It Out
You’re going to need a notebook, paper, or a journal and something to write with. Writing pen to paper can be magical! It helps sync up the mind and body! Many try using their electronic devices but it just doesn’t seem to have the same effect. But to each their own. Then you write about what you’d like the Universe to bring in and remove. Simply write your deepest truths, wishes, and questions down. Think about what energies you’re trying to let go of and release. Write the letter like as if you were talking to an old friend. Think about what energy you’re trying to push out of your life, and what energy you’re trying to bring in, and be detailed but don’t go overboard.
It’s important to be patient and allow your work to take ahold during this process. And just know sometimes things take time. Often we just miss the signs and messages the Universe is sending because they are so subtle. They are not always so earth-shattering signs or A-ha moments that show up like a lightning bolt! More often it’s simply a bird landing in your backyard that has some sort of message or meaning for you, look up Animal Totems. You can hear a song on the radio that seems to have special meaning just for you, or see a movie and a scene seems to resonate with you on a deep personal level. Look for signs on everyday life and they just magically appear. If you pay attention and see everything as a sign, you will start to quickly pick up on what the Universe is trying to tell you! Messages and signs are always everywhere for us.
As you’re doing this work and Setting your Intentions, here are some helpful questions you can think about, for example: Ask for what you are choosing to come into your life? What changes would you like to see happen? What are you or should you be letting go of? How do you feel about what is happening in your life now? What do you want to release? Think about your long-term goals and your future, and what energy you’d like to create over the coming months.
Step Four: Visualize what you’re Creating
Now you’re going to visualize what you have written. First get comfortable again, preferably in the same place and read what you wrote very closely. Then close your eyes and take some long deep breaths, in your nose and out your mouth. See the energy of your heart center, (that’s in the middle of your chest, not your actual pumping heart) but your spiritual heart or commonly referred to as the “Heart Chakra.” Next, Visualize yourself in what you’re trying to create or manifest. For example; see yourself living in that new home, falling in love with a Soul-Mate, driving that new car, (just smell that new car smell!) Don’t just think about what you want, but make sure and “FEEL IT,” as if you are really experiencing what you’re visualizing. If this makes you laugh, cry, scream, or whatever, then go with it.
Step Five: Gratitude
It’s very important to work on releasing what you don’t want in your life during a Full Moon, but it’s equally as important to not leave a VOID after you are done. So you need to fill that space from releasing with gratitude. Being grateful for what you have and around the work you are doing. When we focus on what it is we don’t have we are focusing on “Lack”, and that will only bring in the things we don’t want. Remember what we put our attention on is what will show up! So instead think and feel the things you are grateful for in your heart. Think about what you already have and be grateful for that. Then you will attract more of that can of energy, which in turn brings in some better feeling stuff! Don’t be held captive by your pains and past trauma, call in the good stuff folks. Yes, you deserve something good, wonderful and amazing!
Allow the Universe to show you what path to follow over the next month, and let the Full Moon light up the way! Hopefully, you’ll at the very least be put on a path towards what you truly desire, all while letting go of what you don’t need anymore, it’s truly miraculous.
Starting September 22nd marked the official beginning of the Autumn Equinox. We have shifted into a completely different cosmic energy, but there’s nothing to fear, as we have already been through one of the roughest years of our time. But this energetic shift will help ease tensions and bring some calm into the mix.
This Equinox is the turning point of the year and marks when the Sun shifts into Libra, and this is also called “Libra Season.”
Libra’s energy is all about finding balance and learning how to live in harmony with others, but particularly in our relationships. This sign teaches all of us to look at life from a more compassionate view, as we strive to be more accommodating. Generally speaking, this sign helps us to be the best versions of ourselves that we can be.
As the Sun shifts into Libra on the Equinox, we finally get the opportunity to experience something new or different. This shift in energy will help us focus on allowing our goals to meet there fullest potential. The Cosmic stew of energies we’ve been going through has already been difficult on Mother Nature, so she is still in a massive cleansing process that was initiated by the Eclipses over the summer. Not to make light of the devastation, we also must look at all sides to any given situation while under the Libra influence. So even though the wildfires have been destructive, there is one good thing that comes out of this tragedy, a light at the end of the dark tunnel, and that is the Fires are also cleansing and clearing away old energies. From the ashes, new life will submerge over time, and new beginnings will happen physically but also energetically!
As the Equinox occurs, you’re invited to work on balancing your life, and find some kind of stability along the way. However, as we work on getting our equilibrium back, we still have to take on some life lessons at first. Try to accept the challenges, and understand this is a process we must go through. The Universe will test and challenge you, but these lessons often help us evolve a grow in the process.
Starting September 22nd, the Cosmic energies slow down. So as we enter this major shift, balance will finally start to happen. This influence gives us those moments where we can catch our breath and take a break from time to time. The planet has been going through a lot. Now is the time when the Universe starts a recovery process, even if it lasts longer than usual. This shift serves as a reminder to deal with the things we had to put off, (probably due to the pandemic) or to get caught back up with the things we just couldn’t get done. The last quarter of 2020 will be a time to get caught up as much as you can.
As new paths open and important information is revealed, our perspective will shift, as the Equinox’s energies can help smooth things over as we adjust. It is a very important time to embrace all that is happening now and not hide from it. So trust your intuition and inner voice to guide you through this time.
Many of you are feeling drained or exhausted from being locked down or held back. But once you get on the right path, things will start to calm down. Our creativity will be super strong and potent during this energy shift, so take some time to reflect on what you have been doing this year, so you can create what you want to happen during the last part of 2020.
Don’t look back, as the past is behind you now, and focus on creating a bright and amazing future instead. Visualize your future (Pandemic Free), and see what you want to happen next in your life, personal finances and then the trick is to feel it before it happens. In other words, see yourself happy and experiencing the things you desire, and with your heart and soul just simply feel it!
The energy rolling in now should help you with the more difficult issues we’re facing. This shift kicks off the beginning stages of recovery for ourselves and our planet. Just give all of this energy time to come together, and allow these new energies to flow just where they need to. Try to stay as positive as you can and focus on what is to come, because it truly makes a difference, even if things don’t appear that way at first. Patience is key to your success now.
The Sun shifted into communicative Gemini on May 20th, 2020, and transits this sign through June 21st.
This influence usually brings about change and some disruption. One thing is for sure, we can struggle with feeling restless, nervous, or anxiety-ridden. The best thing you can do for that is to stay mentally and physically active! This is a chatty, communicative kind of energy, so lots of interesting conversations seem to occur during this time. But there’s is another side to Gemini’s twining energy that can have us feeling more withdrawn and reflective, so we can enjoy our alone time as well.
The sign of Gemini rules over things like friendship, and with Venus the Goddess of Love, also in Gemini and in Retrograde currently, we might meet up with certain people who have inspired us to be more romantic, beautiful, and artistic in the past. Allow these muses to help you move forward, but don’t get lost in your feelings, as the fantasy will eventually break and reality will come back in once Venus is out of Retrograde.
This highly stimulating energy can have our heads spinning with quick and fleeting thoughts. But since we thoroughly enjoy communicating during this time, and sharing ideas and opinions, we may reach out to others more so than usual. It’s a time to network and mingle, but remember social distancing. Our minds are moving quicker than usual, as our thoughts jump from one subject and task to the next. So stick to activities during this cycle that involves communicating like emails, paperwork, messaging or phone calls. It’s great energy for multi-tasking.
The shadowy side of this Gemini energy is we can be more easily distracted, and it can be more difficult to focus, so we can be unreliable without meaning to be. We may have to keep redirecting ourselves or others if we want to get things accomplished. We can be very hard working especially mentally, so we can burn out fast. Try to take breaks when you can and remember you can’t get it all done at once. Make lists, use Alexa or Google Home to set reminders, you’re going to need this help, as this can be an extremely busy Gemini Season, even more so than usual.
Mercury and Venus In Gemini – The reason why this is an incredibly busy Gemini Season, is because not only is the Sun in Gemini but so is relationship-ruled Venus and soon cerebral Mercury! This is our core-self, ego, heart, and mind all wrapped up in the Gemini energy. We can be sidetracked and scattered, as we readbetween the lines and feel the energies all around us.
Mercury rules our way of thinking, so our thoughts will move just that much more quickly over the next three and a half weeks. Under these influences doors of opportunity may swing wide open, but also they can slam shut! Problems can be easier to figure out because our empathy for others is so strong, and our psychic hunches are on point! Sincecommunicating is usually so much stronger during this cycle there will be a lot of information shared, so just don’t tell everyone all your business. Knowledge and diversity are more important at this time, and we can feel more sociable, intellectual, and curious under these influences. But our energies can scatter as a direct result of our curiosity and awareness. Being more communicative, and open to having conversations can lead to opportunities that we normally wouldn’t get a chance to discover.
If you feel overwhelmed by these energies your moods can change suddenly, and go up and down. Even if we feel good and are active, as we are still prone to nervousness and excitability. This can lead to feeling more frustrated, so we can blow up in anger quite quickly! And with Mars moving into Aries soon in June, (the planet that rules our motivation levels, passion, and anger) we can get riled up fast, so take some time to get calm if you get frustrated over something.
It’s a good time for gathering and processing information. Read, write, research, and take care of business or run errands. Make only short-term deals and no long-lasting commitments, because we are supposed to be just collecting information for now, as it can be important or valuable down the road. It’s also important to take breaks and get physical activity. This can help our minds relax, so we can get rest. A lot of folks suffer from insomnia and have issues with vivid dreams, both awake and asleep under such strong Gemini energy. Be social and look for different and interesting people to hang with. Your conversations may be quite informative during these cycles.
Mental Mercury enters the sign of Taurus today, it stays there through May 11th.
This energy tends to slow our minds way down, especially with it also being Taurus Season (the Sun in Taurus.) So things aren’t going to be moving as quickly as they have been, and we can feel somewhat stuck. Especially with the ongoing virus situation.
We tend to be more down to earth, stable, and grounded with Mercury in Taurus, and our common sense is stronger, but our fantasies may be put on hold for the time being. We can come off more deliberate, and sometimes harsh under this influence, but it can be easier to communicate our emotions.
We will stick to what’s worked for us in the past, and who’s been tried and true, as our tribe means everything during this time. And we can be stubborn about using new solutions to solve problems, so trying new things isn’t so easy. Our focus is stronger as we can pay attention to one thing at a time, which can help make life more simple in these complicated times.
Be mindful of being overly strict or conservative. Don’t get too stubborn with your thoughts and opinions, and allow others to share how they are feeling during this cycle.
Hiya folks, I am just checking in on everyone! I hope you are being safe and are well during this very difficult time. I’m sending out Love & Light to all of you.
The planetary connections can help give us a source of comfort. Astrology helps us understand how the Cosmic influences are affecting us for the short and long term. This knowledge gives me peace of mind in the most difficult times, and my hope is through my April Astrology Forecast and Astro Blogs that they will help you feel the same way.
April will certainly continue to get a whole lot of attention this year as the Virus Peaks out in the US. It’s important to be together, even from a distance. With the COVID-19 Pandemic creating so much fear and devastation, our social interactions came to a screeching halt in March, so we are paying attention more than ever to what the Universe has in store for us next!
Over the next month or two, we will have to continue self-isolating, which means we are dealing with all of these Astrological energies alone in some way. If you play a big or small role in dealing with this Worldwide crisis, the bottom line is we are making history if we like it or not! We must help each other through it, and be brave. Don’t place too much energy into fear, but more so focus on your faith and or whatever source you believe in. This time to shall pass, and we all individually and collectively share our part in this story, which makes it even that much more important to be kind and respectful with one another.
This is an important time to see just how blessed we truly are, so we can make deeper connections to our loved ones. Please continue to practice some sort of healing, through sending out positive energies through meditation or prayer, or however, you want. Remember in ENERGY we are stronger together! This Virus does not care how old we are or what part of the world we are from. So sending out loving healing energies and good thoughts to everyone is so important at this time. Perhaps more so than ever!
Please continue to practice safe Social Distancing and Isolation, and continue to connect to your loved ones via social media of all kinds.
Many blessings to all. Be Safe & Well. ~Ruby
For All Zodiac Signs
April Astrology Forecast
April 3: Venus enters Gemini
The planet that rules over our relationships travels through this sign of information. This helps us meet interesting people and can bring fresh new energy and ideas into our relationships. Since we are already in self-isolation this is a good time to look up a class online and learn something new. Maybe take a class on something you have never done before, and acquire a new skill. Venus will actually be in the sign of Gemini for quite a while, until August 7th due to its upcoming Retrograde cycle that starts on May 13. It’s time to get rid of old ideas and routines and perhaps try something different. This is a time to change things up every so often in your relationships and around your finances.
April 3: Mercury conjuncts Neptune
Mercury rules over our thinking, communicating, and perception. Neptune’s influence symbolizes our imagination, spirituality, and deceptions. At its best, this is a strong imaginative duo that can help inspire us. The shadow side, can make us vulnerable and gullible and we can believe things that are simply too good to be true or that isn’t even real. It’s important to not believe what people tell you during this time and look into things first to make sure it’s the real deal.
April 4: Venus trines Saturn
This aspect can help stabilize our relationships. It brings in some safety and support from those that hold positions of power or authority. Take this time to socialize, and you might just find ways to advance both your personal and business relationships. This produces lots of good feeling vibes, so we can be better received by others. As things seem to go our way for the next few days.
April 4: Jupiter conjuncts Pluto
Jupiter the planet of luck and expansion conjuncts Pluto, the planet of evolution and transformation every 13 years. This is an extremely powerful energy and we can feel it strongly! We need to think about what we want to do with our lives, and what we want to accomplish. This big energy can have us feeling so incredibly powerful that it can help us get on the path towards something amazing!
April 7: Mars Squares Uranus
There will certainly be some big changes made suddenly or unexpectedly under this influence. So be ready or you can be caught by surprise. As the action planet, Mars gets some big messages from rebellious Uranus. You may feel like standing up for yourself or breaking free from people or circumstances. If you can go with the flow you can do well. Don’t let whatever is happening in the world throw you off balance, (I know easier said than done.) Use this fresh energy and any new ideas you have to form new plans. During this time get creative and innovative, andmost importantly be true to yourself.
April 7: Full Moon in Libra
The Full Moon this month is inrelationship ruled Libra, which means the Sun is in the opposite sign, self-serving Aries. As usual during a Full Moon, ouremotions are ramped up, and there’s a dynamic between self and others during this time. Pluto, currently in Capricorn forms a strong connection called a T-square to the Full Moon. This energy can make us feel intense and pressured, as this is a time when we need to let something go. This can be a person, situation, relationship, or just an old worn-out attitude.
April 11: Mercury enters Aries
The planet of communication Mercury enters bold, and inspiring Aries. This brings new insights and ideas that can help us make our plans or projects more interesting, which can lead us into new directions. This is a good time to connect with people, those who are of like mind that makes you feel more excited about life. This energy can encourage us to break free from unhealthy past habits, to embrace the future.
But we must keep in mind that Aries is known as the God of War. So do your best not to argue, or you could end up wasting your time and energy, and all of thosegreat ideas will never have a fighting chance to get off the ground. Instead, direct your energy towards meeting goals and reaching achievements. We’ve got through April 27th to take advantage of this influence and make something happen.
April 14: Sun squares Pluto
Forewarned is forearmed as they say! When the Sun in Aries squares off with Pluto in Capricorn in this day, some of you will have to deal with a person who wants to through their Power around, and they can be quite dominating. There seem to have their very own agenda or situation, so they may ask you to make some sort of change or adjustment to your plans just to serve their needs. Just be flexible when possible. It’s important to think about others and their needs and to listen more carefully than usual. But you still may be challenged by this influence, so make sure you are also empowering yourself along the way. Don’t be too stingy, but also don’t give everything away. If you take some time to think you’ll know what needs your attention the most.
April 19: Sun enters Taurus
With so many changes going on in the world right now this energy might be a welcome slow down. This is Taurus season, when the Sun enters the more stable sign of Taurus. This sign keeps the energies more practical and grounded, but it’s also very slow-moving, as it’s a lesson for all of us is to enjoy life and to stop and smell the roses. This influence can make us feel antsy even more so about self-isolating and being quarantined. So we need to make sure to continue social distancing. This energy can be quite helpful during a time when people are anxious and impulsive feeling, but they can overreact especially in complicated situations. It’s a good time to pay more attention to finances and our material security. This transit gives us the energy, and stamina to be more determined to succeed. Use these next four weeks to take care of your basic needs. Then you’ll have a more solid foundation to build upon, once it’s over.
April 21: Sun squares Saturn
Four times a year these two square off together, and this opens a door to some valuable opportunities that can help us rid ourselves of what is no longer needed in our lives, especially in our activities. This gives us a bird’s eye view of any plans or ideas we have that are impractical. We can see more clearly who is helpful in our world and who isn’t! This is a time to make smart, informed decisions that can help you hopefully in the long run.
April 22: New Moon in Taurus
This New Moon is in the sign of a more grounded and practical Taurus. This helps us slow down and take some time to get refocused. Our material things and what we value seems more important. Many of you will have already received your”Stimulus” money from the government around this time, so this energy can be quite helpful when it comes to sorting our finances. Take some time to plan your finances and think about how you want to make, spend, and save your money. This will be the right mix of energies to get ahead and maybe start something fresh when it comes to your finances. Also get organized and go through your things and sort out what you no longer use or need, perhaps recycle or donate stuff.
April 25: Mercury squares Pluto
The planet of communication in hot-headed Aries makes a tense square to Pluto in a Capricorn. This stirs up tensions, so it’s extremely important to recognize who or what is bugging you. Someone might be getting on your last nerve. People usually don’t get along so well under this energy. Even though you may be full of bright ideas, and you probably already know exactly what it is you want to do, you may have to deal with those who test or challenge you. Don’t allow this energy to take you off your path. Keep fighting to get what you want!
April 25: Pluto goes Retrograde
How do you use your own personal power? Some folks embrace it and want more. While it makes other people more nervous when they have it! And some people refuse to take control of anything in their life, even though they really need to. So when Pluto goes Retrograde, there are power shifts, and some people fall from a place of power, and there’s a lot of folks who make plays or try to gain power from others. This is a good time to think about what exactly you have control over, and where your personal power is held. Think about your goals during this cycle, and what you want to achieve! Over the next several months, while Pluto is in its Retrograde cycle we get an opportunity to think about how we want to move our life forward again once this cycle is over. What will make us happier and more fulfilled? Pluto will be retrograde until October 4th.
April 26: Sun Conjuncts Uranus
The Sun meets up with unpredictable Uranus today. This means many of you will begin some sort of journey that can help you let go of old habits, and negative ways of thinking about yourself. This is a time of liberation! This isn’t always the most stable of Cosmic energies. But you have more positive experiences if you roll with the tides of this influence. And don’t let any unexpected changes throw you off your game, keep a positive attitude. Keep your mind open and let the past be just that, in the past where it belongs. This is a time for new and innovative ideas. Most importantly be true to who you are, and make sure and allow other people to express their desires, and to show off their special gifts and talents as well.
April 27: Mercury enters Taurus
The planet of communication shifts into a mental slowdown when it enters the practical sign of Taurus. We can let this frustrate us, or take it as a time to pay attention to the important details of our lives. It’s time to feed the senses and delve into what is more pleasurable in life. It might be difficult to just settle into this energy, and really enjoy it due to how difficult things have been for all of us. But if you let the drama go and relax, you can experience something enlightening. Don’t let anyone push you or rush you into doing anything, if you will find a nice quiet place you can Zen out, somewhere you can listen to your higher self and your guides. Most decisions won’t need to be made immediately, but make sure you keep your choices on the practical side and go over all your options first.

The relationship planet Venus enters the sign of communication Gemini today, where it will transit for much longer than usual due to its upcoming Retrograde phase! Venus is in Gemini all the way through August 7th. During this time Venus will go Retrograde in Gemini from May 13 to June 25.
With Venus in Gemini, our curiosity is strong, and this can motivate us to get more involved romantically and socially with others. Variety and change are the main themes of this influence, it’s a time when we feel more sociable, interested, engaged, and especially communicative in our relationships and around anything to do with our finances.
We definitely can be more talkative and naturally curious under this influence. Our minds are whirling with juicy information along with a stronger than normal desire to share, however, we can get lost in conversation. We can be extremely indecisive but also aware, because we can read between the linesin any form of communication. This is a time when we like to multi-task as we’re motivated by our own curiosity.
Under this influence we are more flirty, so it’s no wonder this is a time of romance as we tend to date and hook up more. There’s a need for variety and diversity both, because our minds are so charged up that our hearts tend to follow, this keeps us engaged and interested in human contact and relationships. Since Venus is involved, this energy affects ourlove lives and relationships, and with it being in the sign of Gemini, we can be more fickle and picky. But due to the Virus going around, we need to be extra careful about meeting people in person for the time being, and this might be extremely challenging.
Feeling more attracted to words, we can bond very easily with others on mental levels, but we are also more sensitive to stimulus, touch, and other vibrations that are being sent out on the airwaves. So we can feel quite good with positive energies. But we can feel very bad if we get around anything negative. The energy of Gemini is very empathic and therefore we tend to feel everyone’s else’s emotions from time to time. So you may want to be extra cautious with taking on lovers, friends cans family members emotional baggage and protect ourselves energetically. Shields up folks! This is going to be extra challenging as well, since we are in the middle of a Pandemic right now. We need to keep a degree of compassion going to help those in need, but be able to stay in our own power and not meltdown, so we can take care of those we need us!
It is a good time to connect intellectually with others, but especially in our intimate relationships and with our partners, as we uniquely feel each other’s energies. But we can be more fun, whimsical, light and breezy, but also quite animated and often funny in our relationships. So we don’t enjoy getting to deep emotionally right now, and would much rather keep things above the surface which can be helpful during this hard time.
Emotionally we can be somewhat detached or distant, but we want to enjoy ourselves. When it comes to love we are more attracted to someone’s mind, so words are usually how things spark up between two people. We just bond with people more on a mental level, and we respect good conversations and intelligent work. But we can be quite picky when it comes to showing our affections and enjoying simple pleasures.
This is a strong time for sexual activities, and tantalizing communication, as a little erotica whispered in the ears of our lovers or partners can send them over the edge! But we should be picky with the people we meet up with, and not just get it on with anyone who’s willing. Don’t take a little extra attention or an open invitation as a clear sign you should be doing anything with just anymore. And remember social distancing folks.
Venus also rules over money it finances, and there are two sides to the sign of the twins, so Gemini’s duality comes into play. As our attitude towards our finances is more easy come, easy go. We can be cheapskates in one moment and spendthrifts in the next, all depending on how much mola we have in the moment. With Venus in intellectual Gemini, we tend to spend our money on experiences that will stimulate our mind, like with movies, books, apps online, music, and any writing materials. So even when money is low we manage to come up with just enough to watch something fascinating, or purchase a good book, or just have coffee with a friend. Communication is key under these energies.
The Sun shifts into the sign of Aries on March 19, 2020 and it’s the official first day of Spring as the “Spring Equinox” (Vernal Equinox) occurs, which is also the first day of the Astrological New Year!
Aries Season The Sun will be in the sign of Aries from March 19, 2020 through April 19, 2020 And Aries Season begins! But did you know this affects each and every one of us, no matter your Sun Sign. With the Sun moving into this fiery but also empowering energy, we are awakened and there can be some great things are on the horizon. This is a time of new beginnings, as the light of the Sun slowly takes over the dark. We are more determined and motivated under the Sun in Aries cycle, but we should be careful and not impulsive or hasty.
Our personal goals become very important, and there’s a strong urge to move forward and get things done under this new Zodiac cycle. We are motivated to initiate something by taking the lead and making our own path. We notice our gut instincts more under this influence, so it’s good time to listen to them and pay attention! We are all going to be moving at a much faster pace now, and for some folks, this might be a lot faster than what they’re used to.
Spring Equinox Spring is the season of growth and rejuvenation, as this Astrological New Year is urging you to explore new directions. During the Spring Equinox the energies can be extremely potent. This is the beginning of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere and the energetic turning point from one season to the next. This is when the sunshine finally starts to grow through the Summer Solstice. We get to live more outwardly again, as we crawl back out to the land of the living, and get to spend more time outdoors once again and winter slowly fades away.
During this time of year many people around the world celebrate the Spring Equinox with all kinds of interesting old traditions and festivities to honor the Goddess of Renewal or Spring. Along with the Earth’s ability to regenerate itself once again, this season is obviously very important for many different reasons. It’s a time of awakenings, beginnings, and positive energy chasing the dark of night away. So we need this more than ever!
Ask for Changes As the seasons change, a gateway opens where we experience the light and dark. This makes for a great time to notice just what energies you want to draw to you. And it’s a time to think about what you want to manifest in your life next. Of course we all want to be healthy and have lots of money, but this is a time when we should get more detailed when making our “Intentions” List. So we can start setting powerful intentions or making out Wish Lists, and so some healing energy work.
So get comfortable and take a breathe, and ask the Universe or whatever it is you believe in to bring in what you need and choose. And get a little detailed about it what you want to experience. Ask them to put you on the path towards what will make you happy! Think about what kind of things you want to see happen next. What do you need to move forward and obtain your goals? Write it all down and make it perfectly clear to the Universe what it is your asking for!
Lots of people celebrate this season with religious or spiritual celebrations. But we must not forget the history, and that all of these festivities stem from the fact, that the Spring Equinox is first and foremost a major “Astrological Event.” This event is actually more about about the Sun’s light expanding, and it’s shift into the sign of Aries, the first Zodiac sign of the Astrological Calendar. This light represents the promise of a greater more warm life-changing energy coming into our lives. And Easter is just one of those celebrations that actually began many Moon’s ago, as Eggs and Bunnies originally were symbols of fertility and sex, and represented new life and new beginnings. Unfortunately, like most holidays it has been commercialized and even moved to a date on the calender that doesn’t match up with its origins and the Spring Equinox.
If you’ve been struggling through the Winter months, then consider this event to be just like a calendar New Year! In fact, it’s much stronger in energy because it is a Equinox. Be inspired that this is a new cycle and a renewed energy, and remember sometimes you have to believe that something can and will change to see it through.
May the Sun’s warmth and Spring’s New Energy bring about new beginnings for you that lead to your deepest dreams and desires coming true during this difficult time.
There’s a New Moon occurring soon, which makes this the best time of the Lunar Month to set some powerful intentions. These Wish ListsIntentions can be about your future goals. Learning how to work with the cycles of the Moon can be a life-changing experience.
During a New Moon cycle, we should be asking the Universe for new beginnings, by planting seeds of intention from our heart and getting in touch with our higher-self. It’s a good time to be grateful for what we have, so we can work on manifesting what energy we want to come into our lives next. We can create whatever it is we desire, such as a better life, more money, happiness, or even love! It really doesn’t matter, but we have to take an action, both, physically and spiritually, together, to make it really happen and stick! And no, not everything you want is going to just magically appear. But you will more than likely get put on the path towards your wishes, even if you don’t realize it and that sometimes take time, so be patient. But it’s nice to know at least we are headed in the right direction.
Also, just sometimes when you Set Intentions with the New Moon energy amazing things happen and you get what you want very quickly!
At least by “Setting Intentions” with the energy of the New Moon, you’ve made it clear to the Universe what path you’d like to begin heading down and that’s a start. Then the energies will begin to line up to get you there, and if you continue to stay persistent and connected, and keep doing this work it truly can change your life circumstances for the better. I am like those old commercials, I don’t just talk about it, I have lived it! LOL! And this work, just works! It’s that simple.
The intentions that are set during a New Moon will set you on the right path towards your desires. The New Moon is a magical time of New Beginnings when you can recharge your goals with new energy. During the New Moon, we often experience some sort of major “energy shift.”
Here are some ideas on just how to Manifest under a New Moon:
1. Get clear about something you want and write it down.
2. Share your Intentions with someone in a supportive way, who will be encouraging.
3. Do something to demonstrate your commitment to your intention. For example, taking even a small action around what it is your asking to create! Send an email, move something in your house, or make a phone call perhaps.
4. Acknowledge that you did what you said you would, and then take the next step.
So have a conversation with the Universe (meaning your higher power, God, Source Energy, higher-self, Guides, Angels, etc), and work with the New Moons energy to help illuminate the path that will lead you toward your deepest desires. Simply ask to be led to what you’re choosing to manifest. Remember to be patient and simply allow the time needed, things don’t always happen right away, as we can get taken down certain paths to find our way to what it is we’re looking for. And sometimes magic just happens, you just never know!
What if you don’t know how to “Set Intentions” under the New Moon?
Follow the Steps below to learn how:
Step One: Clear Your Sacred Space
Clear the energy of the area or room you’re using to do any New Moon work. Think about where you are going to do this work, because we create an energy vortex wherever we sit or sleep. This is mainly why you feel so good in your favorite chair, because it’s comfortable and feels safe and secure, but also because you have created an energy vortex in that spot or space.
You are simply calling in some positive energy to work with. Burn some Sage or Incense and clear the energies! Maybe say a blessing or a special prayer that helps you feel cleared and protected. Next, close your eyes and breathe deeply and call upon your Guides, Angels, or higher power and ask to have your sacred space cleared, and then to fill up the special space you are working in with the energy of light, love, and protection. Never leave energy empty, always fill it with something once you’ve cleared it. Never leave a VOID when working with energy.
Step Two: Set the atmosphere
Set the mood for your New Moon Ritual and burn some special incense, light some candles (colors of candles do have different energies and meanings), and play some music that helps you feel spirituality connected. This can be a very different experience for everyone, just make sure to use whatever colors, music, and tools that make you feel calm, centered, and peaceful.
Step Three: Setting Intentions
You’re going to need a notebook, paper, or a journal and something to write with.
Now write what energy you’d like the Universe to bring in. Simply write your deepest desires, wishes, and questions. Think about what energy you’re trying to manifest or create. Write a letter, like as if you are talking to an old friend. Think about what energy you’re trying to bring into your life, and be detailed about what you want to see happen next in your life, and what energies you’re willing to work with.
As you’re doing this work and Setting your Intentions, here are some helpful questions you can think about. For example; ask for what you’re choosing or what changes you would like to see in your life? What are you or should you be calling in? How do you feel about what is happening in your life now? What do you want to change and create?
Think about your long-term goals and future. Be careful about focusing too much on the how, why, and when’s around how you will get what you want! Instead, focus more on what it is you are choosing and how you want to FEEL. See the end result! Only see the ultimate ending and again what it feels like when you receive what it is you are choosing! What you see in your mind’s eye, so don’t focus on how you get it, or the hurdles you have to jump, or sacrifices you may have to make. Just allow the Universe to shoulder the burden for you once you have requested what you want and let them take care of the rest. Have some faith in something. Rule # One is always energy follows thought, it will come to you in one way or another, or you’ll be put at least on a path towards your goals.
Step Four: Visualize
It’s time to visualize what you have written. Close your eyes and take some long deep breaths, so in your nose and out your mouth. Repeat this about 4 or 5 times. See the energy of your heart center, that’s in the middle of your chest, not over your pumping heart but your spiritual heart or commonly referred to as the “Heart Chakra.” Visualize yourself in what you are actually trying to create or manifest. For example: see yourself living in that new home, falling in love with that Soul-Mate, or driving that new car. Just don’t think it folks, make sure and FEEL IT, as if you were really experiencing what you’re visualizing!
Allow the Universe to show you which paths to follow over the next month, and look for any signs or symbols that will help you along your journey, so you may bring in what you truly desire and let go of what you don’t want! Don’t forget to show gratitude in some way and tell the Universe or Moon thank you in advance.
You also might gain some clarity around something or someone that is not serving your higher good, and they actually could be blocking you from your desires. So, in other words, pay attention after you’re done doing this work so you can clearly understand what the Universe is trying to show you!
