Mercury in Retrograde – How to Be Productive



by Rubys Readings



Have you noticed your electronics breaking down or glitching out? Are you struggling with misunderstandings or having communication issues with people? Has your Wifi, computer, smartphone, and anything associated with technology been acting strangely? Are you forgetting words and sentences? Are emails and messages online randomly glitching out or disappearing altogether? Then there’s a very good chance you have been experiencing the side effects of “Mercury in Retrograde.”

Mercury is the plant that governs over communication, travel, how we express ourselves, how we talk to others and ourselves, and our thought process, and often electronics due to being part of communication get caught up in there somewhere. When Mercury is in its Retro cycle or appears to be moving backward, things can go a little haywire here on planet Earth from its influence.

Throughout this post, I will be referring to Mercury in Retrograde as Mercury Rx. Rx is the actual symbol used in Astrology for “Retrograde,” and it helps me shorten this down a bit.

I have been writing about what not to do during a Mercury in Rx cycle for many years now. And even though I believe strongly in the advice I give, especially about how we shouldn’t be signing contracts or starting new jobs or relationships, or going on any long distance trips, it just seems to get to a point where I’m constantly telling only the negative side of things of this aspect, which really is a drag. And then it feels like the Cosmos really has no other point of having the planets go backward or Retrograde but to simply annoy us! Which isn’t how it works.

So here are some facts about a Mercury in Rx cycle. Each Mercury in Rx cycle lasts for 3 weeks, and that’s not including its “Shadow Phases”, which are before and after a Mercury in Rx cycle. Each shadow phase lasts for three weeks as well, and they usually occur two times a year but sometimes even up to three times. So that makes each Mercury in Rx cycle a nearly two-month event, but mind you not everyone feels this fully during the whole cycle. Some people feel it more before, some folks have a harder time during, and a rare few more after the actual Retrograde cycle occurs and more so during the after Shadow phase. Everyone is different.

Being born during a Mercury in Rx cycle myself, I fully understand its effects on a deep level and just what really happens during its cycle. I’ve had my fair share of intimate Mercury Rx moments over the years, and I could go on and on! In some ways, I live in this electronic glitchy world full of misunderstandings and little mishaps all the time! Yes, heavy sigh, it’s frustrating but what can one do but learn from it. Therefore, I am pretty use to it, but still thoroughly annoyed by it! LOL.

But with all of that being said, I have also learned that “Energy Follows Thought” bottom line! No matter what the Cosmos is doing, I have proven to myself time and time again that if you focus on what it is you really want, you can ride the waves of any negative Astrological influence and come out of it with something more positive. Not to say that if you make a list of what not to do during Mercury in Rx that you won’t have issues, because whatever part of your Astrology “Birth Chart” Mercury Rx is transiting is the part of your life it will affect the most, and with this particular aspect there’s not a lot you can do to get around it, but I am here to guide you and try to help to the best of my ability.

Since I became aware of Mercury and it’s Retrograde cycles at a very young age, I have learned a great deal about how to align my energy better with the Cosmos, to seek and find balance. So I thought I would shed some light on how one can be productive during a Mercury in Rx cycle. So instead of explaining what NOT to do during this time, let’s focus on the progress we can make instead.



Astrologers are constantly explaining how during this cycle, communication is broken down, well that made me think about when something or someone is broken down it can be an opportunity to rebuild the energy back up again, and to align better with our soul path in life. Which means perhaps all the things glitching out or not working during this time, or the misunderstandings that seem to come along with Mercury in Rx, are being brought to us for a reason. Perhaps for a higher purpose, maybe to help us understand something we otherwise may not have noticed, and to bring us clarity! But you may be scratching your head and thinking with everything breaking down like computers or our Wifi, how do these random annoyances have any meaning or substance spiritually? The answer is simple, Mercury is telling you to UNPLUG and take a break, the Cosmos, the Universe is giving us a big time out! It’s time to get quiet and stop the constant chatter, get away from the constant movement and stimulus that plagues our lives nowadays. Listen to your higher-self and your spirit! And no it’s not conducive to be unplugged and miss work, or run away from the world everytime Mercury goes into Rx, I get it! But it does mean you can take a Vacation for even a day or two, and simply unplug from the outside noise. If that’s just impossible to do during this time than take just 30 mins a day during Mercury in Rx and really every day and unplug, and go meditate and recharge your own personal batteries. This is a time to find ways to turn your mind off, no more worrying or thinking constantly.

Sometimes we have to start over to achieve our goals, and during a Mercury Rx cycle, it should be the rule of thumb! It’s important to not get bent all out of shape and frustrated, and realize this is a time to re-work, re-do, re-learn, and do re-search. Don’t feel bad, trust me I can sympathize as I have already mentioned, I was born during a Mercury in Rx cycle and I have learned throughout the years once I do something, to do it again, so every time I listen and redo things the issues or situations I am involved in often seem to work out for the better. Just ask my second husband! Yes, I had to even redo marriage! But that’s the extreme example. The bottom line is it can be very frustrating for those folks who aren’t used to it. Taking the time to redo everything all the time frankly can be exhausting, but take my advice, as during a Mercury in Rx cycle it’s the best thing you can do for yourself!

Even the planet Mercury itself is going back through a part of your own personal Astrology “Birth Chart” right now, and a certain sign of the Zodiac as well, and therefore it’s backtracking to help you learn and understand something you’ve probably already have done or been through before. You have to take steps back during Mercury in Rx to move forward.



Here is a list to help remind you just what you can do that actually works during Mercury in Rx. Good Luck And Happy Mercury in Retrograde


How to be Productive during Mercury in Retrograde:


REWORK SCHEDULES: Take a look at your schedule and ask: What’s working or not? Be flexible during this phase, and just know you may have to change your game plan. Think about letting go of any responsibilities that aren’t yours or that aren’t working for you. It’s a time for cutbacks.

DECLUTTER: It’s a great time to get organized and get rid of stuff, and so many of you need to clear out old junk anyway! During a Mercury Rx cycle is the best time to get into your closet, basement, shed, or attic and rid of what you don’t use anymore. I mean go through everything, even old junk drawers and make sure and recycle. Remember when you get rid of old stuff, you are getting rid of the old energy as well that’s attached to it, and you are making room for new fresh energy to come in, which can bring in new beginnings, wealth, prosperity, and better health and overall Karma. Let’s not forget it’s a great time to dump Karmic debt as well. Also, remember your intellectual property as well, as it’s called nowadays, so anything to do with your online stuff, and smartphones and computers, try organizing and getting rid of old files, this will help you tremendously.

REVISIT: If there’s any friends or family that you haven’t contacted in a long time for whatever reason, now is the time to make amends and open your heart up to healing. Working on these relationships can help heal old emotional wounds, which is beneficial to your spiritual evolution. Catch up with old friends, go have coffee or meet up for dinner. Just make sure the people you choose to revisit are not dysfunctional or abusive, as that seems to be a reoccurring theme during Mercury in Rx, to help remind you of how you felt in some way so you can heal it.

SELF-CARE: It’s important to take care of yourself during this cycle, so working on self-care can be very helpful. Take it easy and make sure to eat right, exercise and move around more. Spend less time being plugged into the net or social media if at all possible. Start some sort of new routine that benefits you and your well-being.

CHANGE THE ENERGY: It’s time to change the energies up in your life! This is a time to clear space and energy, so add some nice candles to your home to help burn off old energies and invite new energy in. Put some color in your home or office and redecorate with pictures that make you feel good. Add fresh flowers and burn some incense. Bless and release the old energy that’s been in your home or office, and bring in a higher vibrational energy. There are many different ways to go about this. Just try it, and get creative and you’ll see and feel the difference.

BE FLEXIBLE: This is very important, so I am going to repeat it again, allow the energies to flow around you and stop trying to control everything!! Perhaps write a letter and let the Universe know what you’re trying to create in your life, and then sit back and relax. Just follow what feels natural and don’t fight, argue, or push others even if you feel totally frustrated.

REINVENT: Take some time to think about your past successes and bring new light to them, enjoy what you have created in your life, instead of trying to constantly manifest something new and different. Make sure to reuse what’s in your home and repurpose whatever you can, perhaps some DIY projects should be on the agenda during this period.

REWORK AND REDO: Work on any projects that you have already started and never finished. Work on anything you feel passionate about, but this time finish them to completion and enjoy the work you are doing. If there’s something you just couldn’t get done or finish, now is the time to redo it and fix it! Mercury in Rx cycles really does help us finish up old business.

ORGANIZE: Do you have 3000 pics on your phone or computer just hanging around? Well, this is a great time to organize your life. I like to organize my emails, pictures, and just anything on my computer and smartphones during Mercury in Rx. Take the time to organize your world in any way possible. Use this energy to make something creative perhaps as well.

REMEMBER: Connect to your past in some way, watch old videos of your family, wedding, or any memorable life event that was a happy memory. Check out old high school pictures of friends and family, and just simply reflect and reminisce about the old days. Fill your heart up with memories and simply feel gratitude for the time you had with them. Connecting to positive energies will help you feel good, and can help you move forward in your life once Mercury in Rx is back to its normal place.



If this is a confusing time for you and you need more guidance about how to handle Mercury in Rx, please get with me about a Reading session, and we can make a time to chat about how this particular Mercury in Rx cycle seems to be affecting your life, and together we can make a plan of action to help you get through it and do something more creative. It’s better than hiding under your desk or laying in bed thinking the sky is falling, right?

Good luck and just know this happens every year since you have been born, you have lived through these cycles year after year, so more then likely you will get through it, but just know you have support out there if you need it.

MERCURY IN RETROGRADE “SHADOW” PERIOD


For All Zodiac Signs



MERCURY JUST STARTED WHAT’S CALLED IT’S SHADOW Period on October 29th! NEARLY 3 WEEKS PRIOR TO ITS ACTUAL RETROGRADE CYCLE!
Mercury Retrograde: November 16 to December 6, 2018, in Sagittarius and Scorpio. This affects all of us, how does it affect you?
Mercury the planet of communication starts to slow down its speed once again, and prepares itself by coming to a screeching halt 2 to 3 times a year, and then proceeds to appear to move backward for a 3 week time, and this is called the RETROGRADE period! But there’s a time frame before and after it’s actual RETROGRADE cycle called the SHADOW PERIOD, that starts 3 weeks prior to its Retrograde cycle and 2 weeks after, and during these cycles there can be more confusion as we adjust to MERCURY slowing down as it can cause sort of a ruckus, miscommunications, and electronic snafus. With MERCURY’S slow down and stopping to go into its Retrograde cycle, we need to be patient with other folks and their confusion, frustration, mistakes, and so on, and don’t forget to do the same with yourself! Things like computers, smartphones, cars and all things electronic can be glitchy or have minor annoyances. It’s just best to wait it out because this problematic phase will pass and all these snafus and glitches usually will correct themselves. One key rule during the Shadow period is to not overdo things and make too big of a deal out of it if you can, (unlike me lol) because these issues are usually temporary! With MERCURY RETROGRADE our thinking is thrown off, and so is our perception of things. So mistakes, misunderstandings, and problems involving communication are likely. It’s not a good time to sign contracts, make new agreements, buy anything brand new, or begin new projects. It’s an excellent time to research, revisit, plan, and prepare for something later. Remember Mercury likes to take us back literally to our past when it’s in Retrograde, so back to old friends and lovers, and even behaviors and lessons to learn something we didn’t the first go around.

Some Astrologers consider Mercury to be stronger when it is Retrograde because it is closest to the earth than at any other time during its orbit. So Mercury will be between the Earth and the Sun. The fact that Mercury is strong though, doesn’t mean life will go smoothly, hence Mercury Retrogrades bad reputation. An Astrologer once described Mercury Retrograde as Mercury going down into the Underworld and making us walk through that shadowy part of our mind and consciousness! Since Mercury rules over our thoughts, minds, and how we process information this theory makes a whole lot of sense. We have to adjust to this period to understand it’s odd influence on our planet and our minds, it’s like putting on night vision goggles and discovering a whole new world that our minds have to explore and relearn how to understand. And each Retrograde comes with its own set of lessons for us to learn from, because each one is in a different Zodiac Sign, and that changes them up a bit. We should try and understand that Mercury slows things down while in Retrograde, as our minds start processing information differently during the Shadow phase, we have to adjust to the way we see things and use our minds. This has a strong impact on how we communicate, and around anything that involves the way we communicate like technology of all kinds, and traveling as well. There can be more delays and misunderstandings during all of Mercury Retrogrades cycle honestly, as the energy out there can feel just stuck, off, or stagnant. Give yourself extra time when traveling and driving, be cautious and careful out there to avoid mistakes and accidents! There are a lot of accidents during a Mercury Retrograde Shadow period simply because people feel discombobulated, and lose their focus, so take things slow. And take care of your body and well-being, some folks get sick due to this transit because they are trying to pack too many things in their schedule and simply can’t keep up like usual and become overwhelmed and stressed out! Only take things day by day if at all possible. One rule of thumb you can start to do now is to make sure everything you own that is electronical is up to par and has been serviced or backed up in some way, including your cars. If you have to travel during this time plan ahead and expect delays so you are not time crunched and avoid problems. You’ll notice a lot of Astrologers will say “Don’t do this!” or “Don’t do that!” during this cycle, but it’s important to remember not to stop your life during this time. It’s not the best idea to sign anything of commitment during a Mercury in Retro phase, but that doesn’t mean if you feel really good about it, you shouldn’t take a good opportunity either. Follow your intuition and check in often with your higher-self, and see what answers you get.

Here is the Time Table and Dates of Mercury’s Retrograde Cycle this time around:


  • Mercury’s shadow period begins/enters Rx zone: October 28, 2018, 8:52 PM, at 27° Scorpio 16′
  • Mercury stations and turns retrograde: November 16, 2018, 8:27 PM, at 13°Sagittarius 30′ Rx
  • Mercury stations and turns direct: December 6, 2018, 4:23 PM, at 27° Scorpio 16′
  • Mercury ends its shadow period/leaves Rx zone: December 24, 2018, 11:28 AM, at 13° Sagittarius 30′

Take things slow and pay attention, ask questions, and be ok with doing things over again if need be, and you will come out of this time much easier. Have a good one.  ~Ruby

Full Moon Plus End Of October 2018

rubysreadings.com

Rubys Astro Readings

As we get closer to Halloween a Full Moon will occur in the sign of Taurus on October 24th! This Full Moon is going to a bit of a challenging energy for us because it can make people feel extremely anxious and some folks are going to act quite crazy! This may not be such an easy influence to get through, so it’s important to understand that this Full Moon is full of disruptive and challenging energy, especially in our love lives and for some of you around your finances.   This Full Moon in Taurus can bring unexpected changes in your love life, relationships, and anything your feeling emotional about already! One thing the Moon in Taurus will do is awaken your senses and sensibilities, as this is a very sensitive sign in one of the most sensitive aspects, however, it also is a time of opportunity to understand your existing relationships, especially with Venus (Taurus ruling planet, and the planet of Love and Money) in Retrograde, as we are already thinking strongly about any issues we have concerning love or money.   All of this might sound a bit frightening, but it’s not all bad! The power of this energy can turn unexpected changes into opportunities. There also maybe unexpected love connections made and practical solutions to any issues you’ve already been dealing with in your love life. And this might bring up new issues to also figure out. This Full Moon has a way of magnifying problems that are opposing forces in your world because the Sun is Opposite the Moon during a Full Moon anyway, always. There’s going to be strong feelings of tension and pressure and you can end up feeling ran down or exhausted by it. It is going to be a highly emotional time starting really soon, but it doesn’t have to be negative depending on how you handle it.   The Full Moon is clashing with unpredictable Uranus, the planet of change, rebellion, and revolution, so it’s going to shake up things and upset the status quo, and the Sun will shift into Scorpio a day before. Plus shadowy Venus Retrograde will make a strong connection to the strong Sun. So starting today and the days ahead to the Full Moon you can feel quite rattled and nerve-racked!   If you’re a sensitive person by nature, so an Empath, Psychic, Healer, or just highly intuitive, you need to make sure and get those energetic SHIELDS UP all around you to block out some of this energy.   All the fixed signs of the Zodiac so Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, and Aquarius can feel confused and foggy. But all of us no matter what Sign you maybe could see an old relationship come back around for up to two weeks after the Full Moon comes together. This may not be such a good thing due the whole Venus is Retrograde energy going on as well, however, there will be some of you who will make it through together.  
Halloween Ghost Ruby 

Dates to Pay Attention To:

October 23rd – It’s Scorpio season! With the Sun entering the Sign of Scorpio the Veils between this physical reality and other realms become very thin for the next 30 days, and we should be honoring our loved ones who crossed over, as Halloween approaches we really should think about where it originated, in the end, it is about the people who lived here and their legacy! But you also might experience some sort of paranormal event during this time, as the ones who crossed over tend to want to say hi! October 24th – Full Moon in Taurus! Time to “Set Intentions” and Release what is no longer working or serving you, write out what it is you want to let go of in your life, be it feelings, situations, behaviors, thoughts, or people. Make it clear to the Universe what you are ready to release and what you want to bring in to your life or at least attract. October 26th – Today secrets are revealed, and the truth comes out! Get ready as a big dose of reality, and some clarity might come in about a relationship.

Important Full Moon Info:

Remember the Full Moon comes together October 24th, so plan on Setting Those Intentions to help you release what’s blocking your financial security, and create a way for more money and abundance to come into your life. Use affirmations and mantras that attract wealth and money! This Full Moon is in the sign of Taurus, the sign that rules over Money and finances, among many other things. It’s one of the luckiest Full Moon of the year and it can help you attract good luck and money. The Full Moon in October is called the Hunter’s Moon, and every Full Moon is a very powerful energy that you should pay attention to. Because this is a time when the Intentions and Wishes you made during the last New Moon a few weeks ago start to come together. As goals are ready to be made. Here are the times when the Full Moon peak on October 24th.
  • CST 11:45 am
  • PST 9:45 am
  • EST 12:45 pm
  • MDT 10:45 am
You really should Set Intentions during the Full Moon to help you release something from your life so you can create space and time for some new energy to come into your life. This Full Moon affects each and every one of us, but certain Zodiac Signs will be affected by the October Full Moon the most, and you should learn about how this energy affects you! They often reveal something to us and bring us clarity. So if you’d like to learn more about how this Full Moon is going to affect you please get with me about a personal Reading. During your reading, I will research your personal Astrology and tell you what areas of your life you should be focusing your energy on.

A Look Ahead To Scorpio Season

The above is a gallery with just two images. It’s an easier way to create visually appealing layouts, without having to deal with floats. You can also easily convert the gallery back to individual images again, by using the block switcher. Between October 23rd and 30th, there is what’s called a Stellium of planets in Astrology coming together all in the sign of Scorpio, so this is going to be an extremely intense Scorpio Season. Mental Mercury and over the top Jupiter making a challenging connection in Scorpio. The Sun and shady Venus (more in its shadow-self due to its Retrograde cycle.) Whenever there are more than three planets in one sign at the same time, it’s called a Stellium and it creates a vortex of energy that shines a light in whatever part of your personal Astrology Birth Chart it is going through. Some of you will meet challenges during this time with the same theme, while others will actually thrive due to this energy. All the water signs, so Scorpio, Cancer, and Pisces should enjoy this energy and flow more easily through it. But again to understand this energy more personally and how it affects you, book a Reading Session with me, Ruby, and I will look through your own personal Astrology Birth Chart and tell you just what part of your life this is going to affect, and where the strongest energy will be so you can work with it for your benefit.

Full Moon in Aries

20180923_191007

 

Full Moon
Monday, Sept 24

The Full Moon on Monday, September 24th is in the sign of Aries. The First Full Moon of the season, also known as the Harvest Moon, it helps to highlight this time of year, it’s celebrated as Mabon, which is a time of equanimity and gratitude.

This Full Moon is asking you to take a look into how you are honoring yourself, and balance your personal relationships. You can have new visions, epiphanies, or revelations about things to do with your physical body, your leadership skills, or your ability to start or begin new things, and about your close relationships.

Full Moons are a time to let go of what isn’t working or serving you anymore. So it’s a great time to release energy! There’s some serious energy that can still help provide insight and courage to overcome what we fight or stand for. This is by far one the best Full Moons to work on letting go of something that you just shouldn’t be holding onto anymore. This means you’ve got some work to do over the next day or so to prepare for Mondays Full Moon. Open your heart and release the pain, and set yourself free!

This Full Moon is making a harsh aspect to the planet of Karma, Saturn and emotionally wounded Chiron, this can cause some of you to feel emotionally drained through Monday evening as the Full Moon builds energy to come together.

The Full Moons tense Square to Karmic Saturn may cause struggles with roadblocks, or obstacles, and harsh “in your face” realities, but luckily we can be super persistent and resilient. This influence opens up emotional wounds that stem from our childhood memories. You might have been carrying around those wounds in your heart for years, so now is an opportunity to recognize them and release these old pains or hurts. The Full Moon in warrior-like Aries offers up some ways to fix old pains & wounds, as it can help you figure out something important. And because under this energy we refuse to be the victim anymore and hold on to those old wounds, we really should fight to fix them and release them for good!

Some of you might already be experiencing some kind of drama in your life, but those of you who were born March 20-24, June 21-26, September 21- 25 and December 21-25, might really feel the intensity of this Full Moon energy meeting up with Chiron and Saturn. And you might have a difficult few days, but you also can gain something quite valuable, and experience some serious healing!

We may feel especially tensed up and firey during this Full Moon, so our thoughts can get negative! Don’t allow this temporary energy to do this to you, what you say and think hold great power during this time. Get proactive and raise your vibration by keeping your energy positive! Try talking positively more often and be grateful!

Time to Manifest your Intentions, this Full Moon occurs at the following times: but you can start making those Wishlists over the weekend and then honestly I would burn them with the Full Moon Monday evening since it’s in fiery Aries:

-PST 7:52 pm
-EST 10:52 pm
-CST 9:52 pm

Have a Safe & Blessed Full Moon

Weekend Astro Update

Lucky Times

There’s some good news I want to share with you! The Cosmos is about to shift once again and the lucky planet Jupiter is going to shift into its own sign of Sagittarius in just a few short months! Starting November 8, 2018, Jupiter will shift into the sign of Sagittarius and stay there for a little over a year.

Jupiter has been in the Sign of Scorpio since last November, which has been an eye-opening experience, but once Jupiter makes its shift into more upbeat Sagittarius things will be different, as Jupiter works at its best in Sagittarius, due to it being its ruling planet. This transit of Jupiter can bring abundance, and its effects will be bigger and sometimes better than we have experienced in nearly 12 years! Jupiter is the planet of expansion and it expands everything it touches, it brings good luck, gifts, and often blessings when it’s in a harmonious manner.

Now for the downside of Jupiter moving forward into Sagittarius, this planet expands all that it touches. So all you Scorpio Sun or Rising sign folks might have put some weight on over the last 12 months without even trying as Jupiter has been in your Sign!

But if you are a Sagittarius, you are seriously going to want to watch your diet for the next year or so, as it can be all too easy to pack on the pounds without even trying. You may not even eat differently or change your exercise routines and still put some extra weight on, so forewarned is forearmed. However, most agree the benefits of Jupiter the great benefic planet being in your sign will far outweigh the pitfalls during this time.

This can be quite a Lucky year ahead for all of us, no matter what your sign maybe, Jupiter will touch our lives, in a most prosperous expansive way. This is going to be an amazing way to end the year since it has been so rough for so many of you! This can help improve your finances and many other parts of your life.

If you would like to learn more about how Jupiter will affect you and your future, order a personal Reading with me, and I will explain to you just how Jupiter is going to expand your life over the next 12 months. You may want to know just what areas of your life you can push your luck in, I will be able to guide you in the right direction towards your dreams. 


A Look Ahead!

This week has been easy for some and challenging for others. Stay in your own lane folks! Don’t get sucked into the drama that other folks might try to drag you into. It’s best to understand just why you feel tense.

The Tensions Continue!

There’s a rather testy Mars/Uranus T-Square building up energy now that peaks on September 18th, and in Astrology and life, in general, it is the build-up of energies that cause the most problems. You might be noticing this energy is at play now, and it can cause unexpected events, like accidents, anger and outbursts, and other tensions you didn’t even think about. Whatever issues you might have been dealing with about 4 months ago is now coming to completion and you might have some real challenges in your life, sit back and watch, and breathe, be the observer, not the reactor!

This weekend you might have to work harder to achieve balance. If you are generally an easy going person you might have a difficult time playing it cool, and you might end up feeling like telling someone to “stick it where the Sun doesn’t shine! Ha! It’s a time to get space, it actually can be more important with all these tense energies at play, you may not want anyone in your little private bubble, so stay away from others if need be.

If you are having some sort of relationship issues or money problems, no worries. It’s probably due to Venus now in her “Shadow” Phase of Retrograde, (basically the few weeks prior to her actual Retrograde cycle that begins Oct 5.) Venus rules over our love life, relationships, and money, and while she is doing the backstroke in Retrograde issues around these parts of our lives might start to show up to be dealt with. The Venus Retrograde period is sort of her shadow self, and therefore, you might experience the darker side of Venus and those issues during the Retrograde period, so we may have to discover some secrets to get through but in the end it’s all about the healing folks!

The other issue, however, is Venus has been part of the ongoing T-Square energy that is still building up to peak on the 18th, and that isn’t helping matters much. This tense energy will calm back down a few days after it peaks on the 18th, but it is going to come together again and peak strongly on Halloween, Oct 31 & Nov 30! This strong influence brings out tensions in our relationships and around our finances. Venus goes toe to toe with Uranus the planet of change and liberation, so you can only imagine how this is energy is affecting our love lives and money situations, as it plays in the background of our lives all the way through the end of November. This aspect can cause unexpected changes in relationships, finances, and with your material possessions. So hopefully as this energy peaks new information helps you to see the bigger picture.


“Through our eyes, the universe is perceiving itself. Through our ears, the universe is listening to its harmonies. We are the witnesses through which the universe becomes conscious of its glory, of its magnificence.” ― Alan Wilson Watts


This Weekend

This weekend communicative Mercury makes a nice Trine connection to powerful Pluto and then sweetly hooks up to lucky Jupiter! This is a rather lovely time and great for powerful thinking and manifesting folks!

So do something to Set some Intentions over the weekend, maybe write a letter to the Universe about what you wish for or dream of the most! And leave it under your pillow through Sunday night so you can sort of absorb this amazing energy, and see what happens. Some folks will be pleasantly surprised.

What are the planets doing exactly now?

Desktop-helloautumn-1856x1161

We are now in the final quarter of the year folks, so September through December of 2018 is finally a good time to start untangling the mess that all the Retrograde Planets might have caused, so it just makes sense to work on the areas of your life that you feel somewhat unsure, confused, stuck, or just blocked in. Now that passionate Mars has moved forward and out of its Retrograde cycle, and hard-nosed Saturn has moved direct and out of its Retrograde cycle on September 6th, our lives are slowly starting to move again, which means we can hopefully join in with this energy and move forward as well. Clarity will be gained from our work and careers, which is good news for lots of folks who have had major issues with their jobs during the Retrogrades.

 

Heads up! 

Venus has just started its “Shadow” phase before it goes into its Retrograde cycle soon in October. This brings some more insight into our love lives, and this can help us learn what changes must be made in our relationships and also around our finances. And with Venus now in the sign of Scorpio, we get to learn deeply what we are doing in our relationships both wrong and right. If you are one who is holding onto a secret of some kind in your relationship or doing something sneaky that affects it, be extra careful under this influence, skeletons in the closet seem to fall right out into the open and come up to process and figure out!

 

Saturn just started moving forward again, but it’s slow-moving and then yet Venus, another planet is also changing direction and headed backward in Retrograde at the same time. So soon we might start to feel like things are headed in the right direction, but there are probably a lot of unanswered questions after such a slow-moving summer full of block and delays. It’s finally time for a change.

 

Besides the Retrogrades, there is another important Astrological connection that’s already begun that you should know about. This is hitting some of you quite hard right now. It’s called a T-Square and these connections are not so easy to navigate as the energies are pulled into more harsh directions. This month’s T-Square involves Venus (love & money), Mars (anger & motivation), and Uranus (divine messages, changes, inventions, rebellion, & liberation.) These connections are already causing sudden and unexpected surprises and turn of events, as they all battle it out through the end of September. Therefore, you may feel under attack in some way, as there could be some surprises in both business and personal relationships to contend with.

 

The energies from September 10th through the 15th will peak, and you will more than likely feel the intensity of the T-Square in one way or another, off and on throughout September. This can cause certain effects like unpredictable events and lots of big shifts and changes, also whether issues which have already begun this week and possible shocks and surprises both positive and negative. There also can be frustrations that lead to unexpected outbursts of anger, so aggressive behavior, arguments, and fussiness can be an issue.

 

Unexpected changes in our relationships, especially with Venus shifting into its Retrograde cycle soon, which can affect us both personally and professionally. There can be quite interesting attractions to people and different kinds of relationships formed, and you might just feel bit by the “love bug” during September time, as there will be some love at first sight stories to tell. And changes or sudden unexpected events around money, for some of you this influence, can have an extremely positive effect financially speaking.

 

Here’s a brief breakdown of the T-Square Formation for all you Astrology buffs:

  • Venus is in the sign of Libra and is making a tense Square to Saturn in Capricorn
  • Venus will shift into the sign of Scorpio on the 10th, but also will oppose Uranus in Taurus.
  • Mars shifts out of Capricorn and into the sign of Aquarius and is Squaring Venus and Uranus both.

 

picsart_10-09-03946462823.jpg

Let me also mention that the second and even some of the third week of September might be highly beneficial for some folks, especially those born under the signs of Cancer, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Aquarius. Blessings are coming in as well, and some of you might just experience some sort of miracle, so hold on tight and ride this wave of good fortune. You may also find that the unexpected events I am talking about are also blessings in disguise. Now not everyone born under these signs will experience good luck, but some of you just might receive some sort of good news, so just wanted to put that out there.

 

If you find yourself on the other end of these influences and feel frustrated or upset, here’s a little bit of helpful advice to get you through the tough times. First off don’t forget to breathe, it really can help you get calm and find a better space to be in, it has been scientifically proven over and over that breath is the key to calming the body and mind down. It’s important to not have any expectations about how things should go or how they are going to be one way or another, with Uranus involved we really should “expect the unexpected,” which so far has proven to be very accurate for the early days of September.

 

A Warning:

If someone starts to show signs of frustration, agitation or just gets angry with you, then it’s time to get away from them and give them their personal space. Under this intense energy, it’s not worth getting into arguments or it can go way overboard! Don’t allow someone to suck you into his or her drama! Do not pick fights with others or be antagonize others or you may have to deal with some raw anger and who knows where that may lead.

Venus Enters Libra

 

VENUS ENTERS LIBRA
By Rubys Readings

Venus is in Libra from August 6-September 9.

The Goddess of Love is shifting gears as it changes signs around the Zodiac Wheel every 5 weeks, and this time it’s landing in the sign it rules, the sign of charm and relationships, Libra! However, this energy can also be rather aggressive (Libra is also believed to be Co-Ruled by Uranus.) In love and money endeavors we will go after what we want during this cycle. But we generally speaking are ready to keep things peaceful and harmonious with our lovers and business partners and just in our life.

You may feel airy and somewhat detached while Venus is in Libra with friends and in life in general, but you can become obsessive about keeping your relationships good, especially your intimate ones and in your business partnerships. We can be quite accommodating with other people period, and more than willing to negotiate and compromise. Which is great for making deals and just getting along better.

Because we are especially idealistic about love under Venus in Libra, we don’t tend to see the issues in our relationships, as we can just ignore them instead and pretend everything is perfectly normal, therefore, we may not see how dependent, inconsistent, or superficial we are acting with our partners. We do not like unkind or shadowy behavior during this time, and it can totally turn us off because we are meant to balance the light and dark energies that are around us. We prefer for things to be done a certain way, and to avoid anything unpleasant we tend to ignore or look over important deeper issues that are playing out in our relationships, as this can be a strong time for denial.

It’s important not to ignore our partners or we can suffer in silence, secretly feeling resentful that nothing is getting addressed or changed. Speak up even if it is uncomfortable, that is breakthrough! Your reluctance will only trap you and then you can end up privately suffering while feeling you are the martyr for doing so. Resentments can build and later come between you and your lover or remember also business partners, once Venus shifts out of Libra in October and into more deeper thinking Scorpio.

This is a time when we appreciate anything that is artistic and beautiful. We can seriously spend some mola if we aren’t careful under these energies, so watch your wallet. We want to change our environment and make it more pleasant and beautiful to look at, especially in our home, as it is our sanctuary under this influence more so than usual, which makes it a great time for redecorating or making home improvements. But don’t forget the Retrogrades planets are at play right now, so we should wait until late August to make any major changes or even early September.

Mercury in Retrograde – How to Be Productive

Mercury in Retrograde – How to Be Productive
by Rubys Readings

Have you noticed your electronics breaking down or glitching out? Are you struggling with misunderstandings or having communication issues with people? Has your Wifi, computer, smartphone, and anything associated with technology been acting strangely? Are you forgetting words and sentences? Are emails and messages online randomly glitching out or disappearing altogether? Then there’s a very good chance you have been experiencing the side effects of “Mercury in Retrograde.”

Mercury is the plant that governs over communication, travel, how we express ourselves, how we talk to others and ourselves, and our thought process, and often electronics due to being part of communication get caught up in there somewhere. When Mercury is in its Retro cycle or appears to be moving backward, things can go a little haywire here on planet Earth from its influence.

Throughout this post, I will be referring to Mercury in Retrograde as Mercury Rx. Rx is the actual symbol used in Astrology for “Retrograde,” and it helps me shorten this down a bit.

I have been writing about what not to do during a Mercury in Rx cycle for many years now. And even though I believe strongly in the advice I give, especially about how we shouldn’t be signing contracts or starting new jobs or relationships, or going on any long distance trips, it just seems to get to a point where I’m constantly telling only the negative side of things of this aspect, which really is a drag. And then it feels like the Cosmos really has no other point of having the planets go backward or Retrograde but to simply annoy us! Which isn’t how it works.

So here are some facts about a Mercury in Rx cycle. Each Mercury in Rx cycle lasts for 3 weeks, and that’s not including its “Shadow Phases”, which are before and after a Mercury in Rx cycle. Each shadow phase lasts for three weeks as well, and they usually occur two times a year but sometimes even up to three times. So that makes each Mercury in Rx cycle a nearly two-month event, but mind you not everyone feels this fully during the whole cycle. Some people feel it more before, some folks have a harder time during, and a rare few more after the actual Retrograde cycle occurs and more so during the after Shadow phase. Everyone is different.

Being born during a Mercury in Rx cycle myself, I fully understand its effects on a deep level and just what really happens during its cycle. I’ve had my fair share of intimate Mercury Rx moments over the years, and I could go on and on! In some ways, I live in this electronic glitchy world full of misunderstandings and little mishaps all the time! Yes, heavy sigh, it’s frustrating but what can one do but learn from it. Therefore, I am pretty use to it, but still thoroughly annoyed by it! LOL.

But with all of that being said, I have also learned that “Energy Follows Thought” bottom line! No matter what the Cosmos is doing, I have proven to myself time and time again that if you focus on what it is you really want, you can ride the waves of any negative Astrological influence and come out of it with something more positive. Not to say that if you make a list of what not to do during Mercury in Rx that you won’t have issues, because whatever part of your Astrology “Birth Chart” Mercury Rx is transiting is the part of your life it will affect the most, and with this particular aspect there’s not a lot you can do to get around it, but I am here to guide you and try to help to the best of my ability.

Since I became aware of Mercury and it’s Retrograde cycles at a very young age, I have learned a great deal about how to align my energy better with the Cosmos, to seek and find balance. So I thought I would shed some light on how one can be productive during a Mercury in Rx cycle. So instead of explaining what NOT to do during this time, let’s focus on the progress we can make instead.

Astrologers are constantly explaining how during this cycle, communication is broken down, well that made me think about when something or someone is broken down it can be an opportunity to rebuild the energy back up again, and to align better with our soul path in life. Which means perhaps all the things glitching out or not working during this time, or the misunderstandings that seem to come along with Mercury in Rx, are being brought to us for a reason. Perhaps for a higher purpose, maybe to help us understand something we otherwise may not have noticed, and to bring us clarity! But you may be scratching your head and thinking with everything breaking down like computers or our Wifi, how do these random annoyances have any meaning or substance spiritually? The answer is simple, Mercury is telling you to UNPLUG and take a break, the Cosmos, the Universe is giving us a big time out! It’s time to get quiet and stop the constant chatter, get away from the constant movement and stimulus that plagues our lives nowadays. Listen to your higher-self and your spirit! And no it’s not conducive to be unplugged and miss work, or run away from the world everytime Mercury goes into Rx, I get it! But it does mean you can take a Vacation for even a day or two, and simply unplug from the outside noise. If that’s just impossible to do during this time than take just 30 mins a day during Mercury in Rx and really every day and unplug, and go meditate and recharge your own personal batteries. This is a time to find ways to turn your mind off, no more worrying or thinking constantly.

Sometimes we have to start over to achieve our goals, and during a Mercury Rx cycle, it should be the rule of thumb! It’s important to not get bent all out of shape and frustrated, and realize this is a time to re-work, re-do, re-learn, and do re-search. Don’t feel bad, trust me I can sympathize as I have already mentioned, I was born during a Mercury in Rx cycle and I have learned throughout the years once I do something, to do it again, so every time I listen and redo things the issues or situations I am involved in often seem to work out for the better. Just ask my second husband! Yes, I had to even redo marriage! But that’s the extreme example. The bottom line is it can be very frustrating for those folks who aren’t used to it. Taking the time to redo everything all the time frankly can be exhausting, but take my advice, as during a Mercury in Rx cycle it’s the best thing you can do for yourself!

Even the planet Mercury itself is going back through a part of your own personal Astrology “Birth Chart” right now, and a certain sign of the Zodiac as well, and therefore it’s backtracking to help you learn and understand something you’ve probably already have done or been through before. You have to take steps back during Mercury in Rx to move forward.

Here is a list to help remind you just what you can do that actually works during Mercury in Rx. Good Luck And Happy Mercury in Retrograde

How to be Productive during Mercury in Retrograde:

REWORK SCHEDULES: Take a look at your schedule and ask: What’s working or not? Be flexible during this phase, and just know you may have to change your game plan. Think about letting go of any responsibilities that aren’t yours or that aren’t working for you. It’s a time for cutbacks.

DECLUTTER: It’s a great time to get organized and get rid of stuff, and so many of you need to clear out old junk anyway! During a Mercury Rx cycle is the best time to get into your closet, basement, shed, or attic and rid of what you don’t use anymore. I mean go through everything, even old junk drawers and make sure and recycle. Remember when you get rid of old stuff, you are getting rid of the old energy as well that’s attached to it, and you are making room for new fresh energy to come in, which can bring in new beginnings, wealth, prosperity, and better health and overall Karma. Let’s not forget it’s a great time to dump Karmic debt as well. Also, remember your intellectual property as well, as it’s called nowadays, so anything to do with your online stuff, and smartphones and computers, try organizing and getting rid of old files, this will help you tremendously.

REVISIT: If there’s any friends or family that you haven’t contacted in a long time for whatever reason, now is the time to make amends and open your heart up to healing. Working on these relationships can help heal old emotional wounds, which is beneficial to your spiritual evolution. Catch up with old friends, go have coffee or meet up for dinner. Just make sure the people you choose to revisit are not dysfunctional or abusive, as that seems to be a reoccurring theme during Mercury in Rx, to help remind you of how you felt in some way so you can heal it.

SELF-CARE: It’s important to take care of yourself during this cycle, so working on self-care can be very helpful. Take it easy and make sure to eat right, exercise and move around more. Spend less time being plugged into the net or social media if at all possible. Start some sort of new routine that benefits you and your well-being.

CHANGE THE ENERGY: It’s time to change the energies up in your life! This is a time to clear space and energy, so add some nice candles to your home to help burn off old energies and invite new energy in. Put some color in your home or office and redecorate with pictures that make you feel good. Add fresh flowers and burn some incense. Bless and release the old energy that’s been in your home or office, and bring in a higher vibrational energy. There are many different ways to go about this. Just try it, and get creative and you’ll see and feel the difference.

BE FLEXIBLE: This is very important, so I am going to repeat it again, allow the energies to flow around you and stop trying to control everything!! Perhaps write a letter and let the Universe know what you’re trying to create in your life, and then sit back and relax. Just follow what feels natural and don’t fight, argue, or push others even if you feel totally frustrated.

REINVENT: Take some time to think about your past successes and bring new light to them, enjoy what you have created in your life, instead of trying to constantly manifest something new and different. Make sure to reuse what’s in your home and repurpose whatever you can, perhaps some DIY projects should be on the agenda during this period.

REWORK AND REDO: Work on any projects that you have already started and never finished. Work on anything you feel passionate about, but this time finish them to completion and enjoy the work you are doing. If there’s something you just couldn’t get done or finish, now is the time to redo it and fix it! Mercury in Rx cycles really does help us finish up old business.

ORGANIZE: Do you have 3000 pics on your phone or computer just hanging around? Well, this is a great time to organize your life. I like to organize my emails, pictures, and just anything on my computer and smartphones during Mercury in Rx. Take the time to organize your world in any way possible. Use this energy to make something creative perhaps as well.

REMEMBER: Connect to your past in some way, watch old videos of your family, wedding, or any memorable life event that was a happy memory. Check out old high school pictures of friends and family, and just simply reflect and reminisce about the old days. Fill your heart up with memories and simply feel gratitude for the time you had with them. Connecting to positive energies will help you feel good, and can help you move forward in your life once Mercury in Rx is back to its normal place.

If this is a confusing time for you and you need more guidance about how to handle Mercury in Rx, please get with me about a Reading session, and we can make a time to chat about how this particular Mercury in Rx cycle seems to be affecting your life, and together we can make a plan of action to help you get through it and do something more creative. It’s better than hiding under your desk or laying in bed thinking the sky is falling, right?

Good luck and just know this happens every year since you have been born you have lived through these cycles year after year, so more then likely you will get through it, but just know you have support out there if you need it.

“Setting Intentions” & the Full Moon”

1608395_3830615699150_1900549090_n
This is an opportune time to ask the Universe to bless and release whatever you need to let go of, and do away with, and what doesn’t serve you. The intentions that are set during a “Full Moon” will set you on the right path towards your hopes, wishes, and desires by helping you release old pains and experiences that just have held you down or blocked you up! It’s time to get the old stuff out for good now.
 
During the Full Moon, we often experience an energy shift. So we must release the old energies to be open for the new energies that will be coming in.
 
What to Release under a Full Moon:
* Lower energies
* Negative patterns or bad habits
* Unhealthy situations or relationships
 
What to work on during the Full Moon:
*Letting go of both the people and situations that aren’t working anymore (sometimes it is just an attitude or thought)
*Clearing space for new energies to come in
*Being GRATEFUL for what you already have and what will be.
 
Have a conversation with the Universe (meaning your higher power, Guides, Angels, etc), and ask the “Full Moon” to help illuminate the path that leads you towards your deepest desires. Simply ask to be led to what you’re choosing to manifest. Remember to allow the time needed for your guides to light the way, it doesn’t always happen right away, but sometimes magic happens and it does. The “Full Moon” illuminates and is symbolic for seeing what’s been hidden, secret, tucked away, or suppressed. So ask for the truths to be revealed during this time.
 
What if you don’t know how to “Set Intentions” under the “Full Moon.”
 
Follow the steps below to learn how:
 
Step One: Clear your Sacred Space
Clear the energy of the area or room you’re using to do Full Moon work in. You are simply calling in some positive energy to work with. Burn some Sage or Incense and clear the energies. Next, close your eyes and breathe deeply …and call your Guides, Angels, or higher-power in and ask to have your sacred space cleared of any negative energy, and then to fill it up with the energy of love and light. (Never leave energy empty, always fill it with something once you’ve cleared it.)
 
Step Two: Set the Atmosphere
Set the mood for your “Full Moon” Ritual and again burn some special incense, light some candles (colors do have different meanings) and play some music that helps you feel spiritually connected. This can be very different for everyone. Just makes sure to use whatever tools or colors that make you feel calm, happy, and peaceful.
 
Step Three: Setting Intentions with the Full Moon energy
You’re going to need a notebook, paper, or a journal and something to write with. Think about where you’re going to perform your energy work at. Because we create an energy vortex wherever we sit or sleep or do spiritual work! This is why you feel so comfortable in your favorite chair, not only because it feels safe and secure, but also because you have created an energy vortex in that spot or space.
 
Next, you will write what energy you’d like the Universe to bring in and remove both. Simply write your deepest truths, wishes, and questions down. Think about what energy you’re trying to let go of and release. Write your letter like as if you were talking to an old friend. Think about what energy you’re trying to push out of your life, and what energy you’re trying to bring in, and be detailed but don’t go overboard. Don’t forget to leave room for the energies to shift, change and mold what you’re creating. Sometimes these things take time, but you also may want to learn how to hear the messages or receive signs from the Universe, usually it’s a very subtle energy. But over time usually, your questions will be answered.
 
As you’re doing this work and setting your intentions, here are some helpful questions you can think about … for example; Ask for what you are choosing to come into your life and what changes you would like to see happen? What are you or should you be letting go of? How do you feel about what is happening in your life now? What do you want to release? Think about your long-term goals and your future, and what energy you’d like to create over the coming months.
 
Step Four: Visualize what you’re Creating
Now you’re going to visualize what you have written. First get comfortable again, preferably in the same place and read what you wrote. Close your eyes and take long deep breaths, in your nose and out your mouth. See the energy of your heart center, that’s in the middle of your chest (not your pumping heart) but your spiritual heart or commonly referred to as the “Heart Chakra.” Visualize yourself in what you’re trying to create or manifest. For example; see yourself living in that new home, falling in love with that great Soul-Mate, driving that new car. Don’t just think about it, now make sure and “FEEL IT,” as if you were really experiencing what you’re visualizing. So if it makes you laugh, cry, scream or whatever, then go with it.
 
Step Five: Gratitude
It’s very important to work on releasing what you don’t want in your life during a Full Moon, but it’s equally as important to not leave a VOID after you are done. Which looks like you filling that space up with gratitude for what you do have and around the work you are doing. When we focus on what it is we don’t have we are focusing on “Lack”, and that will only bring in the things you don’t have. Remember what we put our attention on is what will show up! So instead think and feel the things you are grateful for in your heart, Ask yourself what makes you happy that is in your life right now! That way you are attracted more of that kind of “feeling” which will bring in more of the good feeling kind of energy, and that can make you way happier than getting all wrapped up in what isn’t in your life or being held captive by your pains and traumas.
 
Allow the Universe to show you what path to follow over the next 30 days, and let the Full Moon light up the way! Hopefully, you’ll at least be put on a path towards what you truly desire, all while letting go of what you don’t need anymore.
Happy Blessed Moon

Full Moon – Inner Struggle

1608395_3830615699150_1900549090_n
 Full Moon
“Inner-Struggle”
 A Full Moon occurs in the sign of Capricorn on Wednesday/Thursday, June 27/28.

This Full Moon’s effects last for up to two weeks until the Eclipse comes together on July 12, that’s two weeks to make some positive changes.

This affects all the Zodiac Signs, this isn’t about being a Capricorn.

Exact times when the Full Moon begins.
June 28 12:53 AM Eastern 
June 27 11:53 PM Central
June 27 10:53 PM Mountain 
June 27 9:53 PM Pacific

A Full Moon is when the Moon reaches its highest peak, and creates a fertile energy as it brings in endings, especially around certain people, situations, or things that aren’t working for us! But it also starts New Beginnings! This is a highly emotional time full of romance and relationships issues. We usually feel more intuitive during the Full Moon, with wild dreams and psychic visions. There can be sudden random Ah-Ha moments that you should really pay attention to and even investigate, as the truth comes out during this time.

The Full Moons light illuminates important paths for us so we can see which ones we should be heading down. This energy takes us from the unconscious to the conscious mind, and we are made aware of what has been hidden, kept secret, repressed, or otherwise unknown. These new feelings and revelations are emotional ones, and our emotions are ready to burst out! It’s a time to express ourselves and to let things out of our system. Of course, you may want to exercise caution while doing so, as what is coming out is new and has not been thought out yet, so it’s not going to sound rational unless you think about it first!

A Full Moon is actually one of the tensest aspects between the Sun and the Moon every month! This energy can make some of you feel quite nervous and anxiety-ridden, but for others, the Full Moon is an exciting and adventurous time. It’s like watching two people ride a roller coaster, there’s always one person screaming in fear wanting to get off the ride, and then the other person is laughing and having the time of their life! That’s exactly how most of us are affected by the Full Moon’s influence, you either love the energy and feel excited or you get nervous and tense.

Some folks will have to deal with challenging situations and negative people around the last week of June. During this Full Moon, issues can seem much more intense and worse than what they actually are. Which is extremely important to remember!

~This Full Moon has the Sun in Cancer opposing the Moon in Capricorn.
The Sign of Capricorn is about taking responsibility and your career, public image, and reputation. The Sign of Cancer is about home, family, and taking care of yourself and others both. The closer we get to the Full Moon the more Saturn the “Lord of Karma” will affect us. Saturn is trying to tell us it’s time to decide if what we are doing is worth it or not!

The Universe is sending out signs and messages this week whether you should continue on a certain path you are already on or leave it behind! We must find a balance between these two energies, as this Full Moon wants us to balance our commitment to our families and our career. There’s been something building up inside of you already, and now is the time to express that energy as the Cosmos is bringing on the pressure so you will let it out!

Over the next few weeks, we will understand just how this Full Moon affected our lives, but for now we can’t just sit back and be quiet, we have to allow ourselves to fully be seen and heard in one way or another. The Full Moon is about being vulnerable, it forces us out of our comfort zone in one way or another, we are being made to learn how to be ok with trusting the Universe to protect us while letting our emotions come out, but the trick is to learn how to do it safely and without anger or harmful side effects.

Writing down how you’re feeling during a Full Moon is a great way to do just that, it is mostly safe and allows you the safe space you need to express how you are truly feeling. That’s why I always mention Setting Intentions with the Full Moon and its energies. Doing this healing work every month can truly set you free in ways you haven’t experienced. Starting Wednesday, June 27th around lunchtime, once the Moon shifts into the sign of Capricorn you can sit down and write out how you are feeling and have a heart to heart with the Universe, and see how it changes your life. I expect you to be pleasantly surprised if you commit to this kind of work every month.

This Full Moon can be a very strong dramatic turning point for us, being in Capricorn the sign of completion and consequences, which is ruled by rule-maker Saturn. This Moon is closely joining Saturn the “Lord of Karma” during this time, and this can mean this lunation will have a strong sobering tone to it. And we may not feel quite like celebrating like usual under the Full Moon energy. But I say CELEBRATE anyway, there are many other Cosmic Connections happening which we can feel grateful for. This energy can help us gain clarity about our priorities and helps us realign with the energies of what is most meaningful to us in life. Which in turn, can help us focus on our jobs, relationships, and other pressing issues that need our attention.

This Full Moon is making quite a positive aspect with Saturn and Uranus both, which means we can have some reality checks for sure, but we can make this new information work for us. This can bring unexpected opportunities and breakthroughs. There might be a tough choice to make, or we may feel pressured to make some kind of change. These influences help us out of the heaviness we are feeling, especially if we make the effort, then you can change some of the things in your life that are no longer working for you.

You might just meet people randomly or out of the blue, and some of these encounters might be romantic! Because Saturn is Retrograde now, it’s likely these folks are Karmic or Past Life Connections. This does not mean you’re meant to be together! It is a time of Retrograde planets all over the place, so take your sweet time. With the Moon making aspects to Uranus we can leave toxic relationships or jobs now, it’s a time to Break Free from what isn’t serving your higher purpose. You must want this, however, but you can Break Free from most anything under this Full Moon!

If you’re feeling depressed, sad, or restricted just know these feelings will pass, before going off and making any major life changes. My best advice is to take advantage of this Full Moon energy and Release something or someone from your life, as it’s time for something to go! Under these strong, potent energies you can let go of toxic people in general or bad behaviors that are harming you.

Chiron the wounded healer is in the sign of the Warrior Aries and is making tense squares to the Sun, Moon, and Saturn during this Full Moon. This energy can stir up some old emotional wounds folks! It may have to do with your confidence, courage, power, and assertion. Frustrations and anger can come out, and since Aires is ruled by assertive Mars which is also in Retrograde, and we can end up tapping into a very deep place within ourselves where we’ve held repressed hurt feelings or emotional baggage. Mars meets up with the South Node which is our Karmic Past! But Chiron is making a more harmonious aspect to Mercury in Cancer and the North Node of Destiny in Leo, which leads us to a path for healing purposes.

With all of this happening it is advised to not over assert yourself just to protect those buried wounds. Instead, Speak Your Truth, but with Love and Compassion, it’s ok to be vulnerable, it doesn’t mean you’re a victim, it means you trust yourself. Hold a space in your heart to explore this energy, and don’t allow anger to take a hold of you! Anger is only fear in the end in one way or another.

Have a Safe and Blessed Full Moon.
