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!
The Sun has shifted into imaginative and compassionate Pisces on February 18, 2020, and remains there through March 20, 2020. So it’s officially Pisces Season. This energy is about connecting to your spiritual highest-self. It’s a sensitive, wistful, compassionate time. We are strongly in tune with our powers of intuition and emotions. Making decisions or commitments may not be easy under the influence, but tapping into our intuition is.
While the Sun is in Pisces our inner muse must be nurtured and connected too, this helps us heal and move forward. The veils between this world and other realms come down now and boundaries dissolve so we can feel energetically connected to other people and their energies.
It’s important to be kind to yourself and others during this time, and surround yourself with loving positive energy.
We are plugged into everything around us, because the veils between this physical world and other spiritual realms have dissolved. As those boundaries come down we must make sure to “shield” ourselves spiritually and physically. So if you consider yourself to already be a sensitive, Psychic, Healer, Empath, or whatever you call it, might I suggest putting up some sort of spiritual shields to block out outside energies.
Pay attention to when you sense someone else’s feelings rather than your own and don’t attach to them. We’re more aware of the energies around us, and we can be like sponges absorbing all of what we experience. We’re more sensitive and emotional during this time, so we tend to express ourselves in more creative spiritual ways.
It’s a good time to rid yourself of any fears or doubts you’ve been holding on to, so let go of illusions and daydreams that have no real way of ever coming true! Fantasies are just that, they are not reality. Instead, practice connecting to your higher-self through spiritual practices, and by getting involved in creative endeavors.
Allow this energy to flow and just be. Get involved in things like music and energy healing, or doing anything creative or entertaining. This can help us feel more vital, and raises our personal vibration. It’s important to take time-outs and listen to our intuition now, but if we choose to ignore these feelings or messages from the Universe, we can become anxiety-ridden and easily frustrated.
Our bodies and minds sync deeply together now, so try to stay with the beat of the Universe, as Pisces energy is more ethereal and dreamy feeling. Our dream world both awake and asleep can be very strong, pay attention and take notes. Those who have crossed often show up to visit during this time, (especially, since we are just started in a Mercury Retrograde cycle, also in the sign of Pisces!) as these energies tend to bring back things from the past.
The more shadow side to this energy is we can feel more like escaping our reality, so this can be done with drugs or substances that only harm us in the end. We are more vulnerable to the world’s harsh reality and energies, which can make us feel emotionally down and out. Some folks may start feeling so down that they get depressed by this influence. It’s important to connect to your spiritual self (not to sound like a broken record) to keep your vibrational energy higher and avoid these pitfalls.
To do well in this energy you should allow things to just be, and stay aware of your surroundings. Ask yourself what your resisting and stop or it will persist.
Mercury goes Retrograde on February 16, 2020 and runs through March 9th, 2020.
Sometimes the Universe gives us a break even though it doesn’t always feel that way. One thing the Cosmos always does is create balance. So the energies get slowed down a bit so we can have the opportunity to catch up. Mercury in Retrograde (Rx for short) is that time out, it’s an opportunity to get caught up with life, and a time to unplug and take a long deep breath. It’s also a great time to take off from work if at all possible, maybe taking a little vacay and focus on reworking anything that needs to be done, or finishing projects that were never finished to completion, especially since Mercury rules over our minds and thoughts. When this fast-moving planet goes into Retrograde we start to perceive things in a very different and unique way.
Mercury in Rx like all Retrograde planets, as is happening for a reason. This isn’t some new Astrological fad! Planets have always gone into Retrograde cycles and will continue to appear to move backwards in the future every year. So every once in a while we get a chance to pause or stop, and take a break from our overloaded plugged in lives. This is the time to review your life and the paths you’re on. What this Mercury in Rx cycle does is help us to breathe, be still, relax, and review. The main thing to understand as this cycles energy takes hold, is that it’s a time to review your life and redo anything that needs to be done. It is time to re-search, re-think, re-visit, re-connect, and to get re-organized.
What Not To Do during Mercury in Retrograde:
– Don’t start brand new projects
– Do not get into arguments, avoid critical folks and tense people or situations.
– Do Not Sign Contracts or New Agreements
– Avoid Travel
– Do Not take misunderstandings personal. Our communication is foggy and cloudy.
What To do during Mercury in Retrograde:
– Redo, Rework, Review, Research, so basically go over things again and wrap up old business and projects.
– Double Check the Facts and any info gathered.
– Revisit what you need to, like your work.
– Reconnect with the folks that matter if you’ve had issues or not.
– Backup Computers and any data you want to keep saved, usually start this process two weeks prior to the actual Retro Cycle.
– Reorganize your daily life routines.
– Reflect and practice spiritual work.
– Release what’s been holding you back or blocking you, let go of what no longer is working especially in your intimate relationships.
There can be positive things that come from a Mercury in Retrograde cycle that you just didn’t think about before. For example, throwing out old stuff that you no longer need or use, and organizing your life. Stay focused on any past opportunities and reconsider them now, see if they’re still an option, and try to let go of any computer glitches or electronic snafus you might be experiencing. Don’t get angry, or to frustrated.
Mercury is currently in the sign of Pisces, this is compassionate but strange energy. Therefore, we will be in for some odd twists and turns along the way, as we look for ways to escape our reality. The sign of Pisces is after all the sign of the fish, so it lives in the healing energy of water, and Mercury rules the mind, the two don’t mix real well. If we take this cycle to learn how to feel and listen to our intuition, and to be more kind and compassionate to others and ourselves, than we can make things happen once it’s over! As we go back to revisit and revise our plans, we can make some interesting new discoveries, but we may just have to feel our way through this cycle and not rely on good old fashioned common sense so much.
It’s important to keep a paper trail of whatever you purchase. Mercury is known as the “trickster” of the Zodiac, so it likes to play tricks that make us change our minds, and this causes confusion. Lots of people come back around from our past including ex-lovers and friends. Mercury’s influence seems to bring these chance meetings together. But that doesn’t mean it’s fated or destined to be together. It is usually about some sort of healing.
Our focus should be on re-organizing and reflecting. We see the world a little differently during this time, and through these filters we can have some very important inner revelations. It may not be as easy to communicate under this influence, but remember not to try and rationalize everything. Logic is out and intuition is in during Mercury Rx.
Mercury Rx periods can be times of heightened inner-awareness, so practicing things like meditation, keeping a journal, reworking old plans, reviewing, or reconnecting to your past can be quite helpful. Mercury Rx is also a powerful time to study, particularly for returning to old studies and re-learning or refreshing knowledge around a subject that’s already been taken.
This Mercury in Retrograde cycle can also help you think back to a part of your recent past, and reconnect you to an old dream or goal to follow through on once its over. But make sure to write it all down for now. Someone from your past might get a hold of you for a second chance or opportunity, but that doesn’t mean it’s meant to be, usually, it doesn’t work out for the long-run. But it’s nice to reconnect and perhaps sort out any unresolved issues you might have.
Because we are perceiving things in a different way, the truth tends to come out, and you just might notice or find some kind of detail you overlooked or didn’t catch before, which can be very helpful. This cycle can bring clarity and help you move past any restrictions or blocks standing in your way. Mercury begins retracing its steps in direct motion in March 9 (its shadow ends on March 31).

Happy New Year, Happy New Decade, what a wild ride it’s already been in the first few days of 2020!
We start this month off in what’s called an Astrological “Stellium” of planets, all in the sign of Capricorn, that actually started back in early December. This keeps us very aware and focused on our future plans and goals, so most of us are thinking about how we can rebuild certain parts of our lives.
A “Stellium” in Astrology is when there are three or more planets in the same Zodiac Sign at the same time. So this energy is highly concentrated and is a very powerful source of energy that helps us focus and manifest what we truly desire. Capricorn energy is known for being the manfestor and builder of the Zodiac! For the next three weeks, the Sun, Saturn, Jupiter, Pluto, and Mercury plus an Asteroid called Ceres, and the South Node Destiny Point of the Moon are all in the sign of Capricorn! Wow! That’s a lot of energy in the builder of the Zodiac.
This is a very powerful time to continue Setting Intentions with the Universe, as we are spiritually more aware and in tune, by clearing out old energies and bringing in new energies than we can see more clearly our future plans and goals. You can do this through things like meditation, journal-writing, exercise, and clearing out your spaces, especially here in the physical! Clean out a closet and watch what you manifest in your life. Get rid of the dust and clutter and see what kind of energies you open up in your life.
Ask the Universe to help you create your wishes, dreams, future plans and goals. The energy of all things Capricorn is being strongly activated at this time. It doesn’t matter what your Sun Sign is, as we all have Capricorn energy somewhere in our personal Astrology Birth Chart. And whatever area of your Chart this “Stellium” is traveling through currently is the part of your life you need to remain focused on the most.
If we work with the old wise ways of manifesting, we can boost our skills and develop things. Since we are talking about Capricorn’s energy as a whole and not just the Sun Sign, we have to look at Capricorn’s ruling planet, which is Saturn, and currently, Saturn is actually transiting the sign of Capricorn for the next 11 months! Also, lucky Jupiter is in Capricorn for the same amount of time. And mental Mercury will be in Capricorn until mid-January. Under these very powerful energies, we just need to focus our attention on one area of our life that we want to see something new or different happen. Try to only pick one thing over these next few weeks and concentrate on achieving that goal. If you get all scattered and try to work on a bunch of major things right now, it probably won’t work out for the best. We’ve only got a few weeks to work on something that can change our life for the better. This is a powerful trio of Cosmic energies to help you manifest something amazing in your life.
January 2020 Monthly Forecast
January 3rd: Mars in Sagittarius
When this energetic, feisty planet enters the sign of adventure and travel, we are more than ready to be done with old routines and schedules. There is a whole world out there to explore, it’s just waiting for us to go discover it, so make sure during Mars’ run through Sagittarius you get out of the house, and go out of your neighborhood, go explore and do something, the possibilities can be amazing during this time. Under the sign of Sagittarius, we are more concerned with things like philosophy, religion, morals, ethics, and anything that helps us feel optimistic again. Our faith can be restored during this time. We can become over-enthusiastic supporters and advocates, or zealous crusaders. When you think or share your beliefs allow your inner philosopher to guide the way. Mars runs through the sign of Sagittarius through February 16th
January 7: Mars inconjuncts Uranus
Ideally, our lives would run smoothly if everything went well all the time. But that’s not going to ever happen, as the planets who influence us are never in perfect harmony. Don’t let this energy throw you off when something or someone forces a change in your plans. This is exactly what can happen when the action planet meets up with unpredictable Uranus. The best thing you can do is to pay attention to what other people want and change your expectations of exactly how things should go. The more flexible you are the easier it will be to adapt to the changing circumstances we all are going through.
January 8: Jupiter conjuncts South Node
There can be certain influential or wise important people who show up in your life. They seem to have a strong sense between right and wrong, and a healthy moral ethic. But be careful this also can bring in someone with a very larger than life attitude who seems to know a lot, but it’s not a good thing. Think about setting your own personal path and focus on your goals. Think about what’s worth going after. What’s your future look like through your visions? Who or what is guiding you. The more you stay grounded in your own life the better decisions you will make. Do things your way! Make sure before you trust anyone and what they have to say make sure to do your own research and make them know what in the hell they’re talking about folks! Don’t just take anyone’s word for it.
January 9: Sun conjuncts Mercury
This conjunction is in the sign of more serious Capricorn, so we can feel quite practical during this time. This is an ideal time to review your ideas and plans as you figure out which ones make sense. The time where we start to see the benefits that have come from past conversations, agreements, and ideas we’ve had over the last few months. You know how I can get the attention you deserve for any opinions or ideas that you’ve had, this will help move you forward. As all astrological conjunctions mark a beginning, this is a good time to make new plans with new ideas.
January 10: Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse in Cancer
The Moon in Cancer is opposing the Sun in more earthly Capricorn. Lunar Eclipses are basically a stronger more intense Full Moon. This is an extremely emotional time that not only raises the ocean tide, but the water within our own bodies, so basically it’s high tide emotionally as well. Between the Lunar Eclipse and the next New Moon, make changes that make you feel more secure, comfortable, and safe. There can be a strong urge to focus more so on your career and financial endeavors, but it’s important to be paying more attention to your family and personal needs at this time.
January 10: Uranus goes Direct from Retrograde
The planet of revolution, change, and divine messages (epiphanies and little Ah-ha moments) shifts directions on this day, so we should expect the unexpected! Our freedom and independence are more important than ever now in the world and on a personal level. People need space to breathe and move around. Don’t allow fear of the unknown to stop you from taking your most important ideas and goals and moving forward with them. Even though we have no idea where things are headed, we must have faith in something better. Be ready to adapt to changes as they come now.
January 12: Mercury conjuncts Saturn and Pluto.
This is intense conjunction energy that is a bit complicated. With Pluto in the mix are conversations can certainly be intense. However, with somber Saturn involved as well will make it very important that you get your facts straight. People are already working up to this energy now, you can see its evidence in our intense conversations as people have a strong point of view and opinions. Be aware of what you are saying and expressing during this time. Our words no matter how communicated have immense power and can either transform others more positively or they can cut people deeply! It’s important to know when to shut your mouth and when to speak up! Sometimes what you have to say doesn’t help matters.
January 12: Saturn conjuncts Pluto **
This is the big conjunction we’ve been waiting for, and already dealing with known as the “Great Shift”. When the father of the Zodiac meets up with powerful Pluto in the middle of Eclipse Season, and peaks right around the Full Moon! The Universe means business, this energy has already been rocking our world. This energy is supercharged up and intense. It serves as a reminder to let go of old ideas about the way the world is and how things should work. The old outdated rules just don’t apply to our lives anymore, so quit trying to live your life by them. This is a time for clearing out space and old energies. And remember conjunctions start new beginnings, so you may have to let something go first to get things moving. Out with old and in with the new as they say! This is a time of transformation and rebuilding what’s been torn down over the last ten years. It’s time for the rules to be changed, as they should reflect the world we live in now. These two are both Outer Planets, and they tend to affect things globally, but also each of us personally. Now, with the planets that represent authority and power having a conversation you should be asking yourself some questions. How can you position yourself in this changing world?
Saturn and Pluto together represent strong concentrated serious energy. Make sure you are directing it in the right direction, don’t just sit around and hide from this energy. It’s time to step up and do what it takes now. Knowing where the Saturn/Pluto Conjunction is in your personal Astrology Birth Chart can help you understand more clearly what part of your life you should be building on now, so where to invest your time and energy, and where to let go. Best of luck, this can be seriously disturbing at times, but it can help you transform your life.
January 13: Sun conjuncts Pluto and Saturn
You have a lot of authority, power, and energy at your disposal. Let go of what’s broken or not working unless it can be transformed into a new and better version. Align yourself with those who have clout and the ability to help you. You have a power base and if you stand in it, you will achieve your goals.
January 13: Venus enters Pisces
The planet of love and relationships transits through the poetic sign of Pisces, this can help us bring a little romance back into our life. This influence opens our hearts and helps us see the beauty in other people, as we tend to accept other people’s flaws, and love them for who they are. This is a perfect time to meet someone new or to strengthen the spiritual bond of an existing relationship. Take some time to hang with the object of your affection. This is a time when we feel the ones we love and words are not needed. This beautiful transit runs through February 7.
January 16: Mercury enters Aquarius
Mental Mercury needed a change of pace seriously and it enters into more free-spirited Aquarius, this helps give us a new point of view. And we can work at developing our original creative ideas. It’s a good time to work at leaving old ways of thinking behind. You can really help yourself by looking to the future, and by being inventive and think outside the box. Also knowing where Mercury is currently traveling through in your Astro Birth Chart can help you apply those new, bright ideas to the right part of your life. Mercury is in Aquarius until February 3.
January 20: Sun enters Aquarius
Over the last year, we have been out through lots of changes. When the Sun leaves ambitious Capricorn and enters independent Aquarius, our minds naturally focus on our future goals and we can network, meet new and interesting people, and embrace any new ideas we get now. It’s time to invest in your life and goals and take what life has to offer. Trying to meet goals alone might now be so easy, as Aquarius is the sign of “Teamwork”, so join up with like-minded people during the Sun’s run through Aquarius, it’s a good discover and connect with your community.
January 23: Sun squares Uranus
This influence can make you feel quite restless, and you might start to notice its effects earlier on. If might be time to make some changes to your life, and the year 2020 is all about making major changes. When the Sun meets unpredictable Uranus, the planet of independence, it’s time to shake things up. It’s a good time to get out of any old routines that aren’t working for you. Get out of that rut, and don’t suppress the natural healthy desires you might be having for change. Instead, follow your inner guidance and see where it takes you.
January 26: Venus squares Mars
Sometimes the people we like aren’t necessarily the ones we desire. And sometimes the people who seem intriguing are not good for you. When the Cosmic Lovers get into a tense square like this we can bet our relationships can be a bit shaky for a few days. This can bring tension to both romantic and business relationships. You may just have to agree to disagree if you can. Also, there can be some shady characters running around who seem interesting and knowledgeable. But don’t trust false guru’s and take everyone at face value. Be mindful during this time about how you relate to others.
January 27: Venus conjuncts Neptune
Loving Venus is all about our personal love life but also our relationship to money. Neptune more about universal love. This influence opens our heart and soul, as we can see the inner beauty in the least expected places. Take this dreamy energy and run with it, spend some time with the ones you love and do things that make you happy. This can be a very lucky few days for some of you.
January 28: Mars squares Neptune
With the planet of action and control, Mars in a tense connection to the foggy side of Neptune, things definitely may not be what they appear to be. And with Mars in go get em Sagittarius we can be in a big old hurry anyway, but this energy can take you into unfamiliar territory, especially with Neptune being in its own sign of Pisces right now. This is a time of confusion, and it can have you questioning what you are doing for a few days. Try to avoid being straightforward, and pay attention to what you feel when your around other people, and before making any important decisions.

On December 28th Mercury enters the sign of Capricorn and stays there through January 16th.
Mercury, the planet of communication, commerce, and travel has been in the sign of Sagittarius for the last three weeks at its detriment. The bottom line is this means while Mercury is in Sagittarius, it does not do so well. As we had less control of our mouths and impulses. This was a time of travel, exploration, and learning. But even if we didn’t get to actually go anywhere, we probably had some amazing adventures in our minds. It was a good time for meeting new people, so hopefully there were fresh new ideas gained and perspectives changed. But now a shift occurs and it’s time to make new plans and set new goals, and manifest what we want next in our life. Our goals should reflect who we are and want to become.
With Mercury in Capricorn, we tend to get more calm and quiet, and are less over the top under this energy. It’s much easier to focus and concentrate on the tasks on hand that we need to take care of. This simply is a much better position for the messenger planet, so we can get more serious about taking care of business once again.
With the planet that rules over our thinking in more systematic Capricorn, we are more focused. Our attitude tends to be more sobering and practical. It’s much easier to concentrate on what needs to get done. Our conversations are more reality-based, usually about business or practical matters. We communicate more logically, as we can be more organized and orderly. Being focused on the here and now can help us plan ahead. Communications tend to be a matter of fact, no-nonsense, and precise. But it’s important to not allow our thoughts to become too cold or rigid, or we can come across as cut off and even harsh during this cycle, when really we are just more focused on business and goals.
There’s actually a whole lot of Capricorn energy going around right now, with it being “Capricorn Season”, and there are four other planets also in the sign represented by the Sea-Goat. This energy encourages us to take life and ourselves more seriously, so it doesn’t support fantasies do much or daydreams about the future. It wants us to just get out and actually do something.
We should be as productive as possible during these cycles! It’s a good time to make out plans and get organized by writing things down, especially your goals. And talk about what you want to do with the people involved. Staying productive makes us happy and puts our minds at ease.
The sign of Capricorn is not about being overly emotional, as it has work to do. It’s about the material things here on the planet and what we value in the physical world. Our thinking tends to be more logical and practical. It may not be the best time to share feelings or for being vulnerable, as we are more concerned and focused on getting what we want and seeing actual results materialize.
Under this energy, we tend to value honesty, integrity, and loyalty. So we should use this time to identify the best means to get a job done. Under this Capricorn influence, we can manage our resources quite well and make mostly practical purchases with our hard-earned cash or money.
It is important to take care of ourselves, and make sure we are taking some time to get away, relax and have some fun from time to time. Under all this Capricorn energy people tend to be more hard on themselves, so we can beuptight. It’s ok to rest and not be constantly doing something. Take a break!
Have a productive and successful time with Mercury in Capricorn.
The Winter Solstice occurs on December 21st, 2019 in the late evening time in the United States when the Sun leaves the sign of Sagittarius and enters the sign of Capricorn, where it remains through Jan 20, 2020.
This also officially starts “Capricorn Season.” Happy Birthday to all my Capricorn folks!
This year’s Winter Solstice is soon followed by a Solar Eclipse on December 26th. This Eclipse can actually be quite interesting as it is very close proximity to lucky Jupiter! And giant Jupiter and surprising Uranus make a fabulous trine connection, this brings up all sorts of interesting things like inventions and big grand ideas as it opens new paths. Innovation is in the air, so we can go out on new exciting adventures. I hope you all get to celebrate this magical season full of wonder and excitement.
All of these Cosmic connections make for some pretty amazing energies 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! But there also might be some unexpected twists and turns, so just hang on for the ride.
The Sun in Capricorn is a time to get motivated and take care of business. We are being reminded by the Cosmos to respect the physical world and the laws of nature under this influence. There can be a deeper appreciation for structure and order. Our motivation comes from a need to be responsible, as our ambitions and respect for law and order our strong. And clear boundaries are drawn out and simple 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.
During this cycle, we can start working on our long-term goals, as we can manifest some stability for our future. Under the Sun in Capricorn, we can feel quite satisfied if we get tasks and work completed because this gives us a stronger sense of accomplishment As we look for tangible results, and start to realize what will last and what won’t. We’re much more comfortable working in an already established situation, where we know our boundaries during Capricorn Season.
Weekend Update Dec 21 & 22
The Moon shifts into the sign of Scorpio for a few days which creates a more passionate, intense energy. This can help us get motivated to gr our last-minute holiday preparations together. However, if we fall into our emotions for whatever reason we can get lost in them and become obsessed with a need to analyze ourselves and others. This is a time that the truth tends to come out, so think about what you’re saying before you speak!
This is an amazing opportunity to open up to healing yourself and others through your spiritual heart. (That place within yourself that feels love.)
Venus the planet of love aligns with wounded healer/teacher Chiron. There may be challenges or struggles as values and tastes clash, or we can feel torn between wanting closeness and needing our freedom. We can get lost quickly, because we can be quite impulsive if we feel attracted to someone. There’s a deeper pull towards buying material things, (Which is not so good in this day and age with the Holidays coming up! ) Watch your wallets folks, you can seriously go overboard. Some of you will be able to really focus on your relationships and healing. But we can feel quite moody and our emotions can be up and down, this can lead to new commitments.
Over the weekend things can get a bit intense when the planet of love, Venus squares the planet of change and rebellion, Uranus. This can cause unexpected upsets and arguments especially in our close personal relationships with friends and family. So watch yourself at any family gatherings over the weekend, things can get testy. If you know there will be someone you will see that you don’t like then you may want to skip the event. But if you think it will be cool, then just stay aware and if any drama starts up to be ready to get out of there if need be.
Now the good news is the planet Mars which motivates us is in a rather lucky aspect, this can give us a major boost of energy to get things done. This influence can have us feeling strong and vital, and it can motivate us to finish whatever we start. It can actually be a successful day if you can keep things calm.
Here’s to a magical Winter Season, may you be healthy and abundant. Be Blessed ~Ruby
