The Sun shifts into the sign of Aries on March 20, 2019, 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!
The Sun will be in the sign of Aries from March 20, 2019 through April 19, 2019. 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 about being impulsive and 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 is a season of growth and rejuvenation, and 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.
Ask for Changes
As the seasons change, a gateway opens where we experience the light and dark. This makes for a great time to think about what energies you want to draw to you. 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 it’s a great time for setting powerful intentions or making out Wish Lists, and for doing energy work of any kind.
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 happen. Ask them to put you on the path towards what will make you happy! Think about what kind of things you want to 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 beginning. 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.
May the Sun’s warmth and Spring’s Energy bring about new beginnings for you that lead to your deepest dreams and desires coming true.
Chiron often called the “wounded healer” is associated with wounds that cannot completely be healed. And in life we go through many experiences we can’t entirely fix or dismiss. Once something has been done, you cannot run away from it, you can only face it and deal with it, and you can’t undo or change the past. What’s done is done, and sometimes wounds leave scars. These scars become part of us, but we can’t let them dictate what we do or feel in the future.
In Astrology, Chiron’s purpose is to help us heal with the pain we’ve endured. But our healing is a very personal thing, and our emotional wounds become a story of past trauma and pain that helps identify who we are. Chiron is also known as a teacher, mentor, a guide in Astrological terms, and its lessons help us learn how to transcend our personal pain into the collective experience. Then it is no longer just our own pain but all of humanity’s. It’s not necessarily just about the struggles we have with our self-worth, it’s the compassion we feel for all those who suffer, due to a lack of self-worth. Chiron teaches us how to get through the pain, so that all of humanity can be freed from these wounds.
The Old Way
Chiron’s run through the sign of Pisces over the last several years has been about self-discovery, and learning how to endure through times of struggle when solutions weren’t readily available. We are now being challenged to transform and find healing through others acceptance of our past experiences with Chiron in Aries, feeling validated for our feelings
may have seemed impossible to deal with before, but also to have some kind of faith that a path through the pain and darkness can still lead us to light and healing.
The New Path to Healing
Now that Chiron is in the sign of Aries its handing out lessons that are about taking new steps to deal more directly with any struggles we have had to endure. Even though we may not know what the solution is about, we tend to act fast. We are attending a new school, learning how there are plenty of other ways to change just how we respond to such pains and trauma. For starters, learning how to change the way we express ourselves about our painful experiences, and what priority we give them as well, when you think of our life as a whole.
While Chiron journeys through the sign of Aries, our focus is on how we have the ability now to take action, and stand up for ourselves with coruage and bravery! Chiron in warrior sign Aries, often brings back the past when we were scarred in some way by abuse, aggression, violence, and even war. This influence has us reconnect to our suppressed frustrations or anger, and the part of us that’s felt defeated! It’s about our power struggles in relationships, but also our physical wounds, our short-comings and flaws, and when we felt stuck or like we lost something. It’s a time to be validated for how we have felt when wounded.
With Chiron in Aries our emotional wounds are brought back up and out from the Karma we have caused ourselves, and from the times we didn’t choose to listen to our inner voice, and did nothing differently or did nothing at all! It is about lack of action. Now is the time you can face these issues and these feelings head on and change the game. Being a victim under anything to do with Aries energy is a big no no, and we will fight for what we consider to be right, and find ways to deal with our problems head on. Or we will leave our pain completely alone to move forward, which could be a problem for some folks while Chiron is in Aries. Wounds that are not dealt with have a tendency to haunt us. Instead, be the warrior and fight, don’t give up or give in to your fear of what happens when you feel exposed or vulnerable. With Chiron in Aries we must work at being more strategic and deal with our wounds, or they will only come back up later to be dealt with once again.
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.”
The SUN shifts gears into more future thinking AQUARIUS.
Happy Birthday to all my Aquarius people and welcome to Aquarius Season.
This month-long cycle keeps us hungry for knowledge and experience. We now start looking for new ways to do things, as we search for what feels original, different, and unique! We become increasingly aware of what isn’t working anymore in our lives and strive to find new ways of looking at life as our minds open to new perspectives. With the Sun now in Aquarius, you will feel more even-tempered, artistic, sociable, peaceful in your general attitude to life, humanitarian, warm and loving.
You may just start to feel more like mingling again, and not as heavy or weighed down, as our overall attitude is more peaceful. But we can get rather nerve-wracked and anxious if we start focusing on what we are lacking in our lives. Turn any worrisome energy you might experience into something you can manifest, by setting goals and making plans. Tackle one thing at a time and work on yourself, it’s much easier to think about ourselves when the Sun is in Aquarius because we more detached emotionally, and can put our feelings to the side just long enough to take care of important business.
Astro Alert There’s a whole bunch of planets in the sign of more grounded Capricorn currently, which doesn’t mesh well with free-spirited AQUARIUS. Under the Sun in Aquarius, we can find all the structure and order to be too rigid, cold, and restrictive.
Now that it’s officially AQUARIUS SEASON we as individuals are going to be seeking more freedom and independence. We’re going to work very hard now to free ourselves from any restrictions, limitations, and inhibitions that keep us feeling blocked or constrained, rather than safe and comfortable like we have been over the last month during Capricorn Season.
There’s a lot of movement and excitement usually during Aquarius Season, as amazing things are about to be discovered! We tend to be way more open-minded now and can experience an awareness or knowingness. As Ah-Ha moments occur more often, and those amazing epiphanies, ya know those moments you suddenly realize something or rediscover something you weren’t aware of or had forgotten!
Many of you haven’t been so tapped into your spirit lately, with the Sun and mental Mercury both in the Earthy sign of Capricorn. This shift gives us a chance to stretch our minds, bodies, and spirits. So enjoy it!
Some things you can do during this time try to express yourself more openly and outwardly. Be open to trying new ways of communicating and expressing yourself to flow better with this energy. This is a time where we are often quite eccentric. Maybe try to doing something more investigative and take the time to learn something, involving science, Astrology, Metaphysics, or New Age-ish, as lots of folks tend to dapple in the occult during this time. It’s just a good time to study anything new, different, bizarre, or innovative.
This is time of self-expression, as our thoughts and actions both, drive our ambitions. Conventional or traditional values are changed up during this time, With fresh and exciting horizons ahead we are motivated by Spirit!
The Winter Solstice is on Friday, December 21 when the Sun leaves the sign of Sagittarius and enters the Sign of Capricorn where it remains through Jan 20. Today officially starts “Capricorn Season.”
Happy Birthday to all my Capricorn’s folks!
At the exact same time as the Winter Solstice, loving Venus and dreamy Neptune are in perfect harmony together. Our hearts are open to our deepest desires, and our hopes and dreams can manifest. Venus is on a high level, affecting us with its deeper vibrational energies, this energy activates our heart centers and affects how we love one another for a little while anyway. All things Venusian open up now, so how we love each other and around our finances as well, what a Holiday Gift folks! It’s been rough with Venus in Retrograde, but she is totally back to her normal glamorous Goddess self now, so things can go right for a change in our intimate relationships and around our money!
Plans of actions are ready to be put into place and start rolling out now, as mental Mercury is conjunct or connecting to the life of the party, Jupiter. This is a time when we tend to think big, as we love having frank and open discussions, so the possibilities are thought about and discussed. The only issue is with Jupiter and Mercury both in “go big or go home,” Sagittarius, we tend to maybe say a little too much, so watch out for raw honesty, as under this energy we can get carried away!
All of these Cosmic connections makes for some pretty amazing energy, to be honest! These planetary combinations bring in an extra dose of love, happiness, and good fortune for all of us to share. Which is perfect timing for the Holidays!
However, a challenging connection between the Moon and Venus also occurs and we should be extra cautious of the woman we tend to hang out with, as they can get super charged up and dare I say dramatic during this time. This also tends to affect any men who are more feminine as well. Like a volcano, waiting to erupt, and it can be very sudden as some folks are already dealing with this energy!
The Sun in Capricorn is a time to get motivated and take care of business. We respect the physical world and the laws of nature under this influence, as we appreciate structure and order. Our motivation is from a deeper need to be responsible, as our ambitions and respect for law and order our strong. Boundaries are drawn out and the rules are followed, which helps us feel more in control of ourselves and our lives. Simple everyday tasks and responsibilities are easily completed and taken more seriously. This is the cycle to start working on your long-term goals, as we can manifest some stability for our future. Under this Capricorn Sun, we can feel quite satisfied if we complete things, because it gives us a strong sense of accomplishment. And we are looking for tangible results, as we know what will last and what won’t. We’re much more comfortable working under some kind of established situation, where we know our boundaries during Capricorn Season.
Full Moon Ahead!
Then the Full Moon occurs on Saturday, Dec 22, in its home sign of sensitive, protective Cancer. Cancer is a nostalgic sign and very sentimental. This Full Moon is ideal as folks head home for the holidays.
During the Christmas Holiday time the Cosmos lines up and brings in some fun energy, as we feel more like being social, so throwing some sort of Holiday get together in your own home can go quite well, especially since the Moon will be in the sign that loves to be at home the most, Cancer. Traveling can go quite well this week or before the Christmas Holiday, at least better than the actual week of Christmas as there is going to be delays and other unforeseen obstacles for traveling during that time. Being flexible will be the key to success.
This Full Moon period has a slightly restrained quality, with the masculine energies of the Sun and rulemaking Saturn in Capricorn opposing the Cancer Moon’s feminine, intuitive energy. So we can feel pulled on by our emotions to express ourselves only to pull back because we have work to do, and shouldn’t allow our emotional state to get in the way!
Remember the Full Moon is in the sign Cancer over the weekend, it’s the perfect time to do “Energy Work.”It’s a time for Letting Go of what is no longer working in your life or those people who no longer serve your needs. Ask yourself what you need to finish or be done with! This is an emotional Full Moon but it also is powerful!
Late in the evening Saturday or early Sunday morning, the Moon is making a strong opposition to heavy Saturn, and some folks will feel very isolated or alone, as the Holidays are not happy times for everyone. But this energy tends to magnify those feelings and make them deeper feeling! So make sure and reach out to those who seem down or sad. Luckily, these feelings won’t last for too long.
Setting Intentions during this time is strong! it’s a great time to write out a list of what you’d like to be done with, and call in what kind of energy you want to bring in your life. All you have to do is simply ask whomever you believe in, be it “The Universe,” The Moon, God, or simply your higher power spiritually speaking! You can write about letting go of people and situations both. This kind of Cosmic Energy is powerful and it is believed we get an extra dose of Magical Energy because it is also the Winter Solstice! It’s a time for Letting Go, and laying out your plans for the future as well! Manifest folks!

Christmas Eve and Day Astro Update
On Christmas Eve morning the Moon will shift into more generous Leo, and this means you should just have a good time and enjoy the holiday, and not allow yourself to get too worked up or overly aggressive. The energy is high and many of you will be in a festive mood.
Christmas Day looks merry and bright with the Moon in playful Leo. People will be eager to share and in a generous mood. If you are headed to Vegas or just out gambling for the holidays, you could be lucky as the moon in Leo is good for gamblers.
Food will be more desired during this Holiday time due to the Moon being in Leo, so make sure to make a feast or be prepared before the Holiday so you don’t have to worry about it on Christmas Day when everything is usually closed.
A challenging connection between the Moon and Venus also occurs around this time, and we should be extra cautious of the woman we tend to hang out with, as they can get super charged up and dare I say dramatic! This also tends to affect any men who are more feminine. Like a volcano, waiting to erupt, it’s going to be a sudden boom. Some folks are already dealing with this energy! So just be cautious and nice to the woman in your world.
There is some good news for lovers and actually, single folks looking for love, as the week of Christmas there is longer-term energy for healing that will occur in our relationships that need it. Chiron the wounded warrior and teacher influence is going to be strong in the days ahead. This starts around Christmas but peaks around December 28 through New Year’s Eve, when it will be at its strongest, it will be a good time to rekindle a relationship or a time to get together.
But there is an issue with travel during what seems to be the perfect Holiday week. It may take a bit longer than you anticipate to get to your destination. There are going to be some issues with weather in certain parts of the country and heavy precipitation. It just might be better to leave early and travel a day earlier than Christmas Eve Day. The days after Christmas are better astrologically speaking as there are no heavy astrological connections coming together.
New Years Astrological Preview
New Year’s Eve the Moon will be in sexy Scorpio, so it’s a great evening for passion and fun. And the Moon is being supported by a whole entourage of planets, like the Sun, Saturn, and even Pluto in Capricorn as well as Neptune! This is a nice energy folks. This is a very positive New Year’s Eve to make your resolutions and help them stick! All of the strong Scorpio and Capricorn energy will help us with discipline and what we need to succeed. So make up those Wish Lists and the sky’s the limit, even goals that just don’t’ seem within reach can be manifested.
But a bit of caution is also needed, as things change quite quickly when aggressive Mars moves into its home sign of fiery Aries also on New Year’s Eve. Watch out folks, if you don’t know how to handle this all or nothing kind of energy then you can have some issues. Mars sparks the energy up to have a rocking New Year’s Eve but there will also be arguments, debates, and wild events with this more aggressive energy influencing us so strongly.
Have a Happy Holiday Season Folks!
I won’t be writing any more big blogs until after Christmas Day! But I will be posting some Full Moon Blogs and will still be taking clients throughout the weekend for Reading Sessions, so message me if you’re interested, however, I am already booking up fast for next week after the Holiday.
May you have a wonderful, magical Holiday with both friends and family and make amazing memories! ~Ruby
Mercury has finally left its Retrograde cycle! Can I get a HOORAY!! Heavy Deep Sigh and Exhale, Haha!
Mentally strong Mercury, the planet that rules over our way of thinking, communication, and forward movement is finally turning direct December 6th after being in its Retrograde (backward) cycle since November 16, 2018, so over the coming weeks ahead, the problems we’ve been experiencing with communication, decision-making, and glitchy electronics will start to improve. Slowly, over the next few weeks will be able to make decisions once again. But be patient folks, as this energy doesn’t change overnight, it actually takes some time to get back to normal. Just be thankful that Mercury is back on the right track again because that means so will our way of thinking.
Any plans or projects you couldn’t get finished over the last few months can at least slowly get started with some potential for success. But we must start out very cautiously and take baby steps because we actually can be flooded with too much information and it can be overwhelming. This can make matters even more confusing and difficult to make sense of. Actually, it’s just good practice to wait before making any important decisions for the time being, as our thinking isn’t quite clear and there still can be major consequences for jumping ahead.
During the Mercury in Retrograde Shadow period, we should take all necessary precautions, moving ahead slowly and not committing to anything long-term just yet! Make sure to back up computers and phones, get your passwords organized (if that’s possible, ha!) Make sure your Cloud Storage is working correctly and backed up. Keep up with your bills and make sure everything is organized and paid on time. These are just a few ways to ensure you won’t have to deal with some of the glitchy aftermaths that the Shadow Period can cause.
In fact, this after “Shadow Phase” of Mercury Retrograde coupled along with all the other energies and the powerful New Moon can simply be too much energy to handle and very distracting. The clarity we seek isn’t readily available under this changeable energy. This Shadow period is about processing what we have learned during the actual Retrograde Cycle. Mercury’s Retrograde cycle might have thrown you completely off balance, but the question is what lessons did you learn? What challenges or changes did Mercury Retrograde bring up? Take advantage of this Shadow period, until Mercury goes completely back to normal around December 25th.
For example, maybe you realized your judgemental BFF or friend was just reacting to how you have been slowly, or passive-aggressively been critiquing or criticizing their lives! Oops! The second half of the Shadow Phase is when you really can start participating in a new more kind way of expressing how you feel to your friend. So take some time to explain how their actions are bugging you and why. This can be what fixes the friendship enough to keep it together.
Try to wait out making any sudden moves if at all possible, and if you’re needing to make any major changes just try to wait until after December 25th when the After-Shadow phase of Mercury’s Retrograde cycle is over. Enjoy!!
The NEW MOON occurs on Friday, December 7th, 2018, at 2:22 AM EST.
Early in the wee hours of the morning, the Moon in the sign of Sagittarius aligns with the Sun also in Sagittarius, and a NEW MOON occurs! This is an extremely powerful energy, that begs us to look at our future goals and plans, and to manifest what we truly want and desire. This is a time for fresh starts and new beginnings!
The New Moon is in the mutable fire sign of Sagittarius and this represents NEW BEGINNINGS. This is a time to focus on this sign and its traits, so we need to work on feeling being more optimistic, enthusiastic, adventurous, honest, outspoken, and independent! Think about how you can incorporate these qualities into your life!
With this New Moon wrapped in the sign of the Archer, Sagittarius, we should focus on reaching for goals that help increase our understanding and awareness, this is a courageous energy and we are being asked to think about how to expand our horizons, and gain some sort of confidence and even optimism from a broader perspective. It’s all too easy to get lost in the details of your everyday lives, but with this potent Sagittarius energy, we can also find small ways to move forward in our lives and also work at nurturing our faith, hope, and visions.
The Lesson of the New Moon
Something to watch out for is since we are getting a double dose of Sagittarian energy, with the Sun and Moon both being in this fiery sign, is we tend to think in a big way, so there’s a tendency to overdo our expectations through our actions. And with the New Moon involved in a tense connection to aggressive Mars and foggy Neptune, we need to check ourselves and not go over the top or become attached to doing something impractical. This is a creative time, but you may not be keeping it real, and illusions are all over the place! We are making headway even though we may not feel like it right now, as rewards will come from our bravery, and even as little or big as they may be, in about two weeks time after the Full Moon occurs will understand this more.
If you would like to know just how any of these Astrological influences will be affecting you, you can purchase a Readingwith me and I will do the research for you, just ask me, “What Does December Have In Store For Me?” You can email me here. email@example.com Or message me over on most Social Media Sites under Rubys Readings. ~Ruby
The Sun entered the sign of Sagittarius on November 22nd, and this affects all of us, so all Zodiac Signs!
Our focus shifts and there’s a stronger desire to reach out and connect and with something larger than ourselves. With the Sun in this fiery mutable sign, we can take steps now to increase our understanding and awareness of the world around us for the next month. Our courage is stronger than usual and we want to go beyond our normal boundaries and expand our horizons, as we dive into new ways of thinking!
With the Sun in Sagittarius, our focus shifts from the need to make intimate connections with others, to being more focused on having more of an adventure, even if its just one in our minds, but it must have some kind of meaning. We want to connect to something larger than what we have during this influence.
A lot of you will feel more confident during this time, which helps us feel more optimistic and motivated.
While the Sun was in Scorpio over the last month so from October through November, we were so focused on all the damn details that it became overwhelming for some folks, but that was also due to mental Mercury being in Scorpio nearly the whole time as well.
Now both Mercury and the Sun are in the sign of Sagittarius which does help us go beyond our normal ways of thinking and focus on the bigger picture. But we tend to overdo things including setting way too high expectations! We have a stronger desire to express ourselves and can naturally just talk out loud about what we’re thinking and feeling! Think before you speak if, at all possible, there’s a lot of misunderstandings in the air right now due to mental Mercury in Sagittarius being Retrograde.
You do, however, have an opportunity to nurture your faith, hope, and visions for the future under these influences, so through Dec 23rd. Take advantage of it, and be advised, watch your mouth, think before you speak, and if you get overly frustrated then take a time out and don’t express it out loud right away, or at least not until you have thought things through, or you can ruin relationships and upset people without even trying. So take it easy and enjoy this time and go on an adventure somewhere and let loose a little when you can. Take this higher vibrational energy and believe in all that is possible, because you just might get something you really want or need.
When the lucky planet Jupiter moves into its own sign Sagittarius from November 9th through December 3rd there’s a stronger urge to move forward and improve things in our life. We generally speaking need more freedom to have some kind of movement, and we are more willing and open to learn and educate ourselves about different places and cultures around the world.
Sagittarius is a fire sign and with Jupiter being ruled by this sign we identify strongly with our own opinions,perceptions, and beliefs when Jupiter is. In the sign of Sagittarius. So we can take things more personally than usual, especially if others disagree. It is easier to create our own opportunities, and hopefully a little luck during this time, as we feel content when we think about things in bigger terms, and when taking calculated risks and when we feel more confident!
Jupiter in Sagittarius is all about learning how to develop a deeper understanding of the world but also ourselves, through the way we pursue things. Things like travel, philosophy, academics, literature, morality, and our belief systems all will come into stronger focus as we are challenged in different ways to open our minds and go above and beyond what we know and question our knowledge and judgments.
Because Jupiter while in Sadge teaches us how to be more broadminded and forward thinking, there may be challenges towards any bigotry, sexism, or short-sighted attitudes. We are learning how to believe more so that everyone deserves to follow their own beliefs and path, we will be handed out lessons around how to increase our tolerance and acceptance of others and their ways, and to respect others freedom, and give everyone the right to do their own thing period!
Jupiter’s effects help us expand our consciousness and our experiences, knowledge, and a basic understanding of life. Jupiter itself represents hope, joy, growth, optimistic, generosity, and abundance. While Jupiter was in Scorpio over the last year, from November of 2017 to 2018 it helped us expand our awareness about our intimate relationships, coping skills, and personal power. But now for the next year, it’s about the adventure, and how we can learn, grow, mature, and evolve.
The one issue with this placement is Jupiter and the sign of Sagittarius isn’t so good with moderation. And we can feel overly confident to the point where we can be reckless, or use our big mouths with know it all attitudes, so this usually occurs when we’re just not handling this energy so well. We can feel dissatisfied and grow restless, and those nerves can grow stronger as our visions also get bigger and grand about the future and increased wealth, and a better way of life is more sought after!
This is a time when we can feel inspired to learn more and take a more open and wider view of the world, and explore maybe some new area of life or go on a great adventure to seek greener pastures. Maybe the things that bring you joy, and what’s truly the most important part of our lives that will be around in the future. This is a time when there’s a strong urge to break free from your responsibilities or commitments, and we can become weary and dissatisfied with the way things have been in our personal life. This can cause a continuous sense of ickiness if you have to high expectations and take things too seriously.
Enjoy this time, and get out there and grab your opportunities, because they will be handed out all over, more so than what we dealt with all of 2018, make sure and keep expectations on the low end but allow yourself to believe life can and will get better.

November 2018 Horoscopes
Get ready folks things are going to get quite wild, exciting, and a bit confusing maybe as there are just so many major planetary shifts this month that we probably will be feeling much differently about certain things by the time we get to December. Expect more details from me over the course of the month, but in the meantime keep this newsletter to refer back to.
The Radical Change maker Uranus enters Aries, Again?
Starting Nov 6th the planet Uranus in Retrograde (backward) leaves the sign of Taurus and goes back into the sign of Aries, where it already was for nearly 8 years! So we have dealt with this energy before (2010-May 2018), but we’ll have to do it again starting now through March 5th of 2019! It’s no easy task living under the Uranus in Aries transit, it’s been one hell of a ride over the last 8 years with Uranus in Aries!! It’s really been a nice change of pace since May of 2018 when Uranus shifted into the sign of Taurus until November 5th!
But now with Uranus back in the sign of Aries, we have no choice but to take this energy head on one last time, as Uranus won’t be in the sign of Aries after next spring again for nearly eighty years! One good thing is before Uranus leaves the sign of Aries again, it will come out of its long Retrograde cycle on Jan. 7th 2019, so this can help take the edge off, as we all can feel this energy in a deep way!
For now, whole Uranus is back in the sign of Aries, we have to face our fears head on and change some things that just aren’t working for us, so we can live the life we really want to and be who we really want to be, if we like it or not! This energy affects us on a personal and global scale. What you didn’t maybe finish last spring, now you get a second chance to do so. Expect the unexpected and one wild winter and spring, especially for all the Aries, Libra, Cancer and Capricorn folks. But either way no matter what your sign, life is certainly not settling down any time soon and either will we. Just make sure to think before you act which can be quite difficult under this influence, it’s going to take being mindful and strategic ahead of time to keep yourself calm.
The New Moon comes together Wednesday, November 7, in the sign of Scorpio.
This energy is intensely focused and gives us deep insight into our problems. But this influence is under a fixed water sign of Scorpio, so what we tend to see is often just the tip of the iceberg. There’s always a whole lot more going on beneath the surface when it comes to Scorpio energy! Some of the themes during this month’s New Moon are subconscious motives, suppressed emotions, and other subtle energies. With this New Moon on the World’s Axis it’s a very karmic and revealing time! There will be lots of chance for changes and expansion in our lives, so it’s an amazing time to “Set Intentions” with the New Moon, and if you don’t know what that is please check out myNew Moon Setting Intentions Blog. This is also right when the elections in the US will be going on, so something that happens during this time will directly affect everyone, as there are major changes coming!
Knowledge & Luck
Lucky Jupiter transits the sign of Sagittarius starting November 7th, 2018 through December 3rd, 2019
This transit can put you on a new path towards some good fortune, depending on just where lucky Jupiter is transiting your own personal “Astrology Birth Chart”, this can show you what part of your life some good luck and positive vibes will come in. You can feel a strong urge to move forward in life, to better help you improve something and to have more freedom to move as you please. Lots of folks will be traveling during this time, because we want to educate ourselves and learn more about other places and cultures, which all in all can help us expand ourselves and make the world a better place. But we must watch our mouths as well, its more difficult not to say out loud or express our thoughts. Use this time to learn, grow, and expand yourself.
Sexuality & Motivation
Mars enters Pisces!
On November 15th, warrior Mars the planet that rules over our passions, aggression, sexuality, and physical drive, shifts Zodiac signs into more sensitivePisces. This means we can assert ourselves more from an emotionally sensitive place, as we are a little unassuming, and more co-operative, cultured, refined, caring, and our since humor can be strong. Listen to your intuition during this cycle. Sexual behavior will also be much stronger, and can very soulful.
Love & Money
Venus Moves out of its Retrograde Cycle!
Then on November 15th a whole lot of changes will be happening. First, off the love Goddess herself, Venus, the planet that rules our love lives and often finances will come out of Retrograde, and many of you will be able to make an important decision about your love life or a close relationship. Money issues will lighten up for some folks, especially if you were already having issues.
While Venus is Retrograde she is at her closest distance to Earth, and in fact, she’s closer than any other planet can actually be! So, a good way to think of her Retrograde is when the Earth and Venus do their dance and bring up all of her themes to the forefront of our lives, so things like relationships, love, and money! Venus is strongly on our minds and in our hearts right now, and she represents whatever involves love, money, relationships issues, jealousy, and boundaries in relationships. It’s a period of time when we should work on listening to our partners, and lovers. Sacrifice some things for your lover so they are happy!
On Nov 16th, Mercury Retrograde begins its cycle in the sign of Sagittarius but is also in a tense Square to foggy Neptune for a few days which may add to the confusion. It might be more difficult than usual to ignore negative thoughts and feelings about other folks, which can make you feel quite upset, uneasy, or even ill. Your dreams might be super strong and extra vivid for a few days, but hard to understand or interrupt. Romantic adventures may be interesting during this time, but remember the difference between fantasy and reality to avoid feeling rejected and embarrassed later.
During the whole Mercury Retrograde cycle, so from Nov. 16th through Dec. 6th, be very careful about what you sign, so things like contracts or commitments of any kind. And don’t try to fit extra commitments into your schedule. This is supposed to be a time of rest and rejuvenation. And not a time to start anything brand-new for three weeks. Back up computers, and be cautious with driving and traveling. It might be difficult to stay on top of the details of your life, especially with all the technology snafus and miscommunication going on. . Take extra precautions to avoid getting sick and to keep your health well, live gently. This cycle runs throughout the Holiday Season so be mindful and do what is best for you, first!
It’s time for a turnabout, and if we are smart we will allow our minds to take a rest and go into some sort of peaceful state during these cycles, as we can then review where we have been. It’s time to get real with yourself and do some self-appraisal which is going to require for us to be extremely open-minded, and usually can only be done by those who are enlighted enough to really love themselves. It’s probably pretty obvious by now that something we have been doing in our love lives, relationships, work, or otherwise isn’t working for us, so it’s time to take new steps and follow our intuition, throw logic out the window during Mercury in Retrograde and listen to your intuition!
Endings & Letting Go
Full Moon on the 23rd
This month’s Full Moon is in the sign of Gemini, in the Pleiades Star Cluster. Since this Full Moon is in 0 degrees of Gemini, it carries a special significance, which emphasizes something fresh can start, and new lessons are handed out to be learned. This may seem like an odd time with the Full Moon coming to a stage of completion. And it also will ride right along with Uranus moving back into the sign of Aries, which means something from our past may come back up that still needs to be fixed or resolved. It’s a time to wipe the slate clean and start over again, and release what you don’t want or need so you can start something new.
Neptune turns Direct and out of Retrograde on Nov 24th
This means we finally will start to gain some clarity again and are better able to make certain decisions based on all that we have learned, thinking back to what has been revealed to us since June 18th when Neptune first went into its Retrograde cycle, as many secrets have come out to be dealt with!
The world has been quite an angry place lately if you haven’t already noticed, and as a result of this collective inner disharmony, we could see some serious anger and violence in the outer world for just a few days as Neptune comes out of its Retrograde phase! This means emotions can run high, which leads to sudden frustrations and bursts of anger. If you want to just simply be reasonable it’s going to take some mindful consideration before you move forward on anything. Actions are sudden and spontaneous so it might prove difficult to allow our minds to not be impulsive, it’s important to find some sort of safe way to express how we are feeling which could just solve the problem altogether.
Finally, we can feel like we are being knocked around by all this Cosmic Activity, but there is every reason to believe that for now on, we can enjoy our daily life a who lot more after we get through this time. As things will start to feel considerably lighter and less tense. Meanwhile, it just depends on where all the planets are lined up in your own personal Astrology Birth Chart, but either at home, with family, in your relationships, and even with our financial problems, things may start to finally be sorted out. Expect some exciting changes on the horizon, and whatever you do think positive to offset down of the challenges we will meet
