May’s abundant New Moon in the sign of Taurus, which is ruled by lovely Venus (beauty, money, love) just came together on Saturday the 4th, and brings us to the end of a cycle that has to do with financial issues! This New Moon brings you to end of some sort of Karma you’ve been dealing with around money and financial well-being. And it also kicks off a month-long period of abundant energy, and some sort of prosperity for many of you! If you’re willing to do a little work with the Universe it can go a long way right now.
This positive financial shift can really make a huge difference in some folks lives! As the Buddha Full Moon comes together on May 18 next, this is when we should be releasing any long-term ancestral Karma around finances and other parts of our lives as well. If there have been any money issues or challenges passed down from generation to generation in your family, then you might be living under what’s called poverty consciousness! Now you can ask the Universe to help you let go of that way of thinking and that life, and be done with that Karma that binds you to financial misfortune.
Work smarter, not harder I always say, so please do something proactive to be connected to this amazingly abundant shift. Just by working with the energies between the New and Full Moon during the month of May can bring many new opportunities onto your path for wealth and new financial resources. As the New Moon is in the sign of Taurus, so it is all about manifesting! Letting go and releasing under the Full Moon energy this month could open up space for the Universe to bring in something or someone new, this can end up being a much better fit or situation for you. So if you are losing a job, home, or relationship right now, again sit down today and write out some intentions to the Universe, and feel it after you’re done, visualize it in your mind and feel it in your heart and manifest what you want to create in your life next around money and abundance.
When you can align your energy with these Cosmic events, and set your intentions and thoughts to the possibilities, and then make sure and do something about it, so take action during these powerfully abundant Cosmic periods. That’s when you’ll see some sort of good luck start to show up in your life.
The Full Moon cycle we are in right now that starts May 18 is a time for releasing old poverty consciousness, learned behaviors, and wrong ways of thinking and doing money in your life, so instead you can open up your mind to unlimited possibilities! That’s when the wealth shows up!
Important Dates to pay attention to May 4’s New Moon was just the start of a month filled with opportunities for financial gain. If you been feeling like there’s not enough money to just pay your bills lately, there’s a lovely connection between Venus and Jupiter on May 9. This influence can help us seriously attract money!
There are also two more good cycles for money to be shifted into something more abundant in May! The first one begins around May 12 and runs all the way through May 24. Also, May 18 is the best day for unexpected money to show up!
Lovely Venus will make a nice trine to powerful Pluto starting May 28 as well. This is a great aspect to land that new job or to gain the money that you’ve been waiting on, and for signing long-term commitments and/or contracts and so much more. All of this could bring in some abundance for many of you. So if you are also thinking about filing a lawsuit or a making a big negotiation of some kind, look for things to start happening around this period, so through June 7
The next couple of months have a strong energy for lucky financial opportunities to come into your life. It’s a good time to get a Reading with me about your finances and see what you need to be doing to tap into this energy. Order a One Question Reading about your money luck, and will make a plan of action and see where you are headed.
May you have lucky times ahead! email@example.com FB messenger at Rubys Psychic-Astrology Readings ~Ruby
The New Moon energy will be quite comforting in the sign of Taurus on May 4th!
This lunation brings in new beginnings and hopefully a fresh start to our lives. This means we should be focusing on helping heal the world by embodying positive energies for our future, with our hopes and dreams. This energy can feel natural and comforting, as we should be focused on building onto whatever foundations we already have and keeping them secure.
This is a time when feelings need to be expressed in our friendships and partnerships, as we develop a stronger sense of what we want in our lives. This is also a great time to push forward with whatever we were releasing around the last Full Moon in April.
This New Moon in the sign of Taurus, and it does affect everyone, as it harmonizes with the planets Neptune, Saturn, Pluto, and the Moon’s North Node, this means it just feels more natural to connect to something that gives us a sense of purpose so we can make changes and start up something new. This is a time to fulfill a deep mission within ourselves, by doing something that fulfills our soul. It is easy to overdo things and go overboard, and we can be sort of cocky or have a bit of an attitude with Mars making a tense opposition to larger than life Jupiter.
This influence can help us finish up the little things that need to be sorted out, as it helps us make room for the big cosmic shifts that are changing things so rapidly now. This is an opportune time to ask the Universe for New Beginnings. The intentions that are set during a New Moon Ritual will set you on the right path towards your desires. Have a conversation with the Universe or Cosmos (meaning your higher-self, higher power, Guides, Angels, the God of your understanding etc), and ask for the New Moon to open up the paths towards your deepest desires, or ask to be led to your manifestations.
Some of you might be asking, how does one Set Intentions under the New Moon?
Well first you should set the mood, create the energy. Light some candles and maybe burn some incense or sage. Next play some calming meditative music. Get comfortable and simply write down your deepest desires, wishes and questions on a piece of paper or in a journal. Think about what would you like to manifest, create, or what energy your trying to bring into your life. Think of it this way if you don’t ask you will never know the answers.
As your doing a ritual or Setting your Intentions, here’s some helpful questions you can think about.
What are you choosing to have in your life?
What changes would you like to see in your life?
What are you or should you be building on, or starting new?
How do you feel about what is happening in your life right now,?
What do you want to create around your long-term goals and in your future?
One of the most important parts of Setting Intention with the New Moon, is FEELING what it is you really want to have happen or see come in your life.
The next step is to Visualize and feel what you’ve written down. Close your eyes and take several deep breaths, and imagine entering into your heart Chakra, the middle of your chest! Now see yourself in the desire or dream your creating. For example, see yourself living in that new home, falling in love with that amazing Soul-Mate, getting that job you’ve always wanted, or driving that new car. You can’t just THINK IT you have to make sure and FEEL IT, as if you are already really experiencing what your visualizing out in this physical world.
Some folks like to burn their Intentions or Wishlists after they have performed their ritual, so just make sure to do it in a safe place. Others keep their lists until the next Full Moon and burn them at that time. Everyone does it a little bit differently, but the Universe knows either way, just do what works for you!
Allow the Universe to show you what paths to follow over the next month, and allow the New Moon to show you the paths you are supposed to be going down, so you can live a fuller more happy life, and obtain the goals and dreams you already have been focused on!
New Moon Timing
The New Moon occurs at the following times below: but we can start our energy Intentions work on Friday afternoon, in the states, when the Moon shifts into the sign of Taurus.
The month of May might seem to start off a little slow but that’s due to Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto’s very strong Retrograde phases, and with Mercury still in the impulsive sign of Aries, we may feel like making decisions but can be confused about what direction to take. One thing these Retrograde planets are doing is giving us grand ideas and inspiration, but our progress has sort of came to a standstill and it can feel like you’re trying to move a brick wall at times. This is a time to wait it out if at all possible, but I’ve learned most folks refuse to go with the flow of the Cosmic energies, unfortunately, so if you must make a major decision of some kind take into consideration this is a time of delays and cutbacks, and there can be many different things that try and stop you from making progress. But this is only temporary folks, we are only in Retrograde Season for the next three and half months.
On May 1st the planets Uranus and Neptune from a somewhat tense semi-square for the last time, but you can feel this all week long. This long-term transit has been in play, off and on since August of 2017. With this aspect, we have been seeking inspiration in one way or as this connection grows stronger and forms once again, we might feel restless if our dreams are not coming together in a way we like or want, so we might need to make some sort of big change. We can easily deceive ourselves in some way or others believing we are going to get something that we just can not have at this time, as we can go on some sort of tangent and act on a whim. But only to realize after this influence breaks apart that it wasn’t going to stay together in the first place. In the weeks ahead with Mercury separating from Uranus by just one degree, our progressive ideas and inspired thoughts can start to come together.
A New Moon occurs on the 4th in the sign of Taurus, and we are more motivated to take charge of things, but we must be practical and use common sense to achieve what we want, especially if it has anything to do with making ourselves feel more safe or secure in some way. This is a good energy to think about your relationship with money and your possessions, and to learn what it is we truly value and what genuinely makes us feel more happy and content with life. We should be focusing on what it is we can do to increase our own feelings of self-worth, and how to make our lives more simple. This is also a great time to reconnect with the outside world, so with nature and our bodies, and to our senses, for example, what makes us feel good, like food, music, and sexual activity. Under this lunation, we can feel a sense of purpose and like we are on a mission, as we are ready to take on projects that bring personal pleasure. This is a manifesting New Moon under the sign of Taurus, so we should make sure to take some time to Set Intentions with the cosmos and write out our wish lists about what kind of energy and events we would like to see unfold next in our lives! What paths do you want to head down next? What would bring you the most pleasure?
Mercury makes a shift on May 6 into the sign of much more slowed-down Taurus, as it moves out of the fast-moving sign of Aries, so we can see big changes. This energy slows our thinking process and the way we communicate down a notch, as we enjoy living in the present moment and savoring all that is pleasurable and beautiful. Over the next month, our way thinking is more practical, and we now see our inspired ideas come alive and make a difference in the physical world.
Venus is in Taurus from May 15-June 8 2019.Venus while in the sign of sensual and natural Taurus, can have us feeling more content but also possessive when it comes to love. We seek and value not only what’s been tried and true in the past in our relationships, but what will last and has staying power. Our desire for anything pleasurable it super strong, including our appetite, so lots of folks will be eating up their emotions! Under this Taurus energy, we are more focused on the here and now, or the present moment, as we want to explore what makes our senses come alive! With Venus in the sign of Taurus, we tend to show our love through physical expressions, and romance is very important to us now. We can get a little overbearing with the object of our affection and hold on tightly to someone we love, but we should be careful not to smother them. The shadow side of this excessiveness is we can treat our partners like objects that we own or just want to have around. And since Venus often rules over our finances or money, as well, we do look for a business to be practical and solid, but also want to only buy what is considered to be of higher quality (often what we cannot afford.) Holding on to our possessions is more likely now.
Mars is in Cancer from May 15-July 1 2019. Mars carefully sidesteps through the sensitive, complicated waters of Cancer in May. Mars is the planet of war and strategy, it rules over our physical actions and our passions. We will pursue our goals consistently, but we avoid a direct approach and go after these things in our own way and in our own time. We are less likely to move forward towards our desires and goals with Mars in the sign of Cancer. It is very important that we meet goals and plans, but we can end up diving into our own insecurities, vulnerabilities, hidden agendas, and old emotional wounds. We can learn how to use some self-nurturing tactics along the way. It may be difficult to control our temperament because our mood swings dictate how we do things or when we do them. We’re not overly aggressive but more defensive, as keeping our security is a priority! Therefore, we can be more cautious and conservative in this energy, but we will “Fight” for or on the behalf of those that are near and dear to our hearts.
The Full Moon occurs on May 18 in the sign of Scorpio. This Full Moon can make us feel totally restless. This energy has already been making some of you feel a little nervous over the past week or so, it can make us feel like something is wrong or about to happen. As with any Full Moon, we can feel pushed and pulled on under the Sun and Moon in their tense connection in two opposing signs, and this time around it’s between the Sun in Taurus and the Moon in Scorpio. Luckily, this Full Moon is making harmonious connections to Pluto and Saturn which means we just might have exactly what we need to make some sort of change. This Full Moon energy has us digging deeply, it’s a time of transformation, strategy, love, and generosity, with no space for those who are being false. At its worst, this Scorpio energy can also cause issues with control, manipulation, jealousy, obsession, vengeance, deceit, paranoia, and we can feel overly suspicious. This Full Moon is a strong reminder that we need to think about those who are good to us and appreciate the folks who help with their love and support. We need to listen to others needs, wants, and opinions. This is a time of endings and rebirth.
Happy Gemini Season! On May 20, the Sun slips into more easier going Gemini, so our relationships may move beyond what is false or superficial, and we may just want to make a long-lasting commitment of some kind. A lot of folks tend to get engaged and married during Gemini Season for a reason. Any long-term investments you have been thinking of or planning out can be made now and that includes your relationships. This is a time when we enjoy meeting and schmoozing with others, as we can have all those wonderful brilliant conversations that are quite intellectually stimulating. This actually is a time to collect information and save it for later, you never know how valuable it might become.
A time for Healing! There are two rather nice influences for healing that come together on the 21 and 22, but can affect us weeks before these dates.
On the 21, powerful Pluto and Chiron, the wounded healer and teacher align, and this allows our creativity to flow strong, we are more clever when it comes to solving mysteries in our lives and for both ourselves and others, and when figuring out problems, particularly those issues that may have been holding us back in some way from our destined path in life, towards personal growth and development. Overall, this energy can help us see past human flaws and evolve for a higher purpose, which is about forgiveness and healing.
On the 22nd, dreamy Neptune forms a lovely trine connection with the destined North Node of the Moon, this is a beautiful time and an opportunity to get in touch with your intuition. This helps us trust ourselves to be on the right path toward our own personal improvement, growth, and enlightenment. But his is also a good time to release any negative energies that are holding us back from growing. During this time it might be easier to let go of matters that have caused us pain or frustrations. This is a wonderful few days to meet with others who support our same values, and some of them might even help us see our own potential more clearly.
Have a good and happy May, if you need help or guidance, or just some insight please contact me Ruby here.
It’s a time to take a step back to review plans and projects as giant Jupiter makes its yearly backward trip into its Retrograde Cycle for the next four months. With Jupiter in Retrograde, it’s a time to re-think goals and plans, especially ones ruled by Jupiter. This is really an opportunity to question ourselves about the things we thought we already knew so we can develop new perspectives or beliefs around what we are planning next for our future.
With Jupiter Retrograde we get a once a year opportunity to go back over certain things and possibly collect the rewards or gifts we missed out on before! Maybe you just weren’t ready yet the first time around, or open to certain possibilities. But now you get another chance to experience a bright prospect that lucky Jupiter can bring.
During this Retrograde phase, you can see just what part of your life you’ve been overdoing it in, or where there’s been excess, greed, or extravagance. You just may need to slow it down a bit, as adventures & projects can be moving along too fast and mistakes get made or things can be misinterpreted. Let things unfold naturally during this time, which can be a bit of a struggle through the 21 of April with it being Aries Season, and again through the first part of June with mental Mercury in Aries, so our minds want to do nothing more than to move forward, fast and quick! But remember taking your time now during this Jupiter Retrograde period can be beneficial in the long run. As certain realities become known and this energy comes in stronger you may start to lose your motivation and enthusiasm.
Making progress might come to a halt as this cosmic turnaround tends to slow us down. This is a cycle of reflection, you should be focused on what gives your life deeper meaning, and what can help you feel more abundant. This isn’t typically a time of difficulty, but when Jupiter gets ready to turn Retrograde (its Shadow Period) it can seriously slow us down, as we adjust to this more intense feeling influence. This actually can cause you to feel a sense of urgency and desire to find something more expansive in your life and to get rid of the things that are restricting you, holding you back, or that are keeping you from happiness and satisfaction.
Starting April 8 through August 11 is a time for cutbacks on the activities that don’t help you reach your goals. The Universe has a way of getting us to take a seat and chill out, this Retrograde phase gives you that opportunity to make sure the plans and projects you’re working on are still what you want and need. It’s a time to rid of any distractions that just waste your time, energy, or money! Don’t focus on what isn’t working or what’s slowing falling away now, rest assured it was probably a waste of your time anyway. Besides whatever doesn’t work out at this time, is probably a gift to you from the Universe, because there was a reason of you understand it or not. Once Jupiter is direct, whatever plans or projects you have been working on will start to come together. We’ve got plenty of time to figure it out.
Most of the time Retrograde planets get a pretty bad rap! But when Jupiter is Retrograde it can actually be a good thing! You just might receive some sort of random good luck in whatever part of your life you are the most focused on at this time. This is a time for second chances and opportunities, and for amazing things start to happen that involve your work, traveling, legalities, real estate, and of course your spiritual growth. Over the next four months, we get a chance to actually make big strides, but only if it’s something you really want and have been working towards. If you try to be tricky and lie or deceive others to get ahead now or take advantage of people, your success will come crumbling down once Jupiter goes direct again in June.
Over the next few months whatever has held you up from growing and evolving on a soul level is where Jupiter’s Retrograde will be more evident. This cosmic turnabout is a time of big surprises and reveals! Many of you are simply repeating a pattern of some sort that you might have done repeatedly lifetimes before, which has been blocking your success and personal happiness. Over the next four months, Jupiter Retro will light up these behaviors or patterns. Old learned behaviors from our past in this life or past lives will be shown to us now. Therefore, this can be quite a revealing time that helps you understand just what part of your life needs help, so you can remove any blocks and achieve greater success and stop unhealthy behaviors once and for all!
Jupiter Retrograde happens every year! It lasts for about four months. It’s a great time to sort out exactly what you truly want from life, and to plan on how you can go get it! By the time Jupiter goes direct, you will see things start to become a reality, and will be able to move closer towards your goals with success, and hopefully some happiness.
Here’s something interesting to look at. If you were born with your Natal Jupiter in Retrograde in your Personal Astrology Birth Chart, it is believed that you might have to achieve what you needed to in a past or former lifetime. So since you didn’t get a chance to complete an important destiny, calling, or lesson you may just be getting to do it all over again during this life and finally fulfill that destiny.
Over the coming days and weeks ahead make sure to take some “me-time” for yourself. Do some soul-searching about events or situations that be the most pressing over the last few months or so. Think about what new prospects or gifts you can re-discover.
Have an insightful and fulfilling Jupiter in Retrograde, ~Ruby
The NEW MOON is in the sign of ARIES this April of 19, and it brings in fresh and new energy. This particular trailblazing NEW MOON is when the Sun in ARIES and the MOON in ARIES both make a rather harmonious connection. ARIES energy is always about New Beginnings, and NEW MOON’S are about starting a NEW CYCLE in our life. So this fiery lunation is strong and potent! When we think of Spring time it’s about renewal and new Beginnings, and this is the perfect energy to line up right along with the start of the new season.
During this time we should be able to take the lead and move forward in our lives, and be the warrior like this ARIES energy and charge ahead! This is the time to take action, try something new and innovative, and go after what you want. Don’t be afraid and let your confidence take you where it needs to. ARIES energy can help you learn how to be assertive without being harmful. It’s a time to take charge of our lives and start something new and different. The lessons ARIES hands out is about staying young, and connecting to your inner child in some way, but it’s also trying to teach you how to be bold and learn more about your own personal courage.
Now that mental MERCURY is freshly out of its Retrograde cycle, the energy of strength helps you to better understand yourself, so you can do some soul searching through journal-keeping, meditation, or exercise. You have an opportunity to start this cycle off on a good note and make the changes you’ve been patiently waiting to make while MERCURY was in RETROGRADE, it was a long one.
This is a good time to set goals, plans, and commitments that are more realistic. “Go big and go hard” is a good ARIES Mantra, no matter how big or small you set your sights, you should start to notice things happening within a few weeks by the next FULL MOON. Later, you may get to reap the rewards from whatever new beginnings you begin.
ARIES is the first sign of the ZODIAC, so this being a NEW MOON makes it especially strong with opportunity for New Beginnings. It is a time to actually act on impulse if you are careful of course, follow your gut instincts, your intuition, and take some risks. Aries is a sign that teaches us to take action and learn through our experiences. So get out there and have some sort of adventure!
This is also a good cycle to learn more about how to keep things real, ARIES teaches all of us a valuable lesson around expressing ourselves in a more authentic way and without being false. This helps you to better rely on yourself and to be happy about doing so, so you can be put you on a path towards finding inner peace and ridding any anxiety you may be experiencing around being alone. Then you can be self-sufficient and not worry so much about blaming those who weren’t always there.
“This is a time to break your normal everyday routines and have experiences that involve doing something new, this can help you feel more alive and worthy.”
However, this particular NEW MOON is forming a tense square to taskmaster SATURN, which means some paths towards our New Beginnings might be blocked. Some kind of plan or expectations you have may not startmoving as quickly as you thought they would.Hopefully, since we are in a unique time Astrologically with NO major planets or cosmic bodies in RETROGRADE, eventually theenergies will get moving after we deal withSATURN’S challenges.
For All, you fellow ASTROLOGY freaks this NEW MOON phase occurs at 15 degrees and 17 mins of ARIES, which tends to affect folks born with their personal planets and points at 11 to 19 degrees of the Cardinal Signs of the ZODIAC (ARIES, CANCER, LIBRA, and CAPRICORN.)

Mars in Gemini
March 31st – May 15th, 2019
For All Zodiac Signs
Mars is the planet that motivates us. It supplies us with drive and physical expression. It also rules over our sexuality and how we handle our passion and anger. Mars is the warrior of the Zodiac, but also is the driving force behind the voice we often need to get things done.
With Mars in more vocal Gemini, everyone of us might have plenty to say. This is all about passionate communications folks! Under its influence we like to debate our thoughts and ideas, and it’s important to get our message out there, but some folks are going to be way to pushy or wordy! So know when to back off!
This brings in a strong surge of energy that affects us mentally and emotionally. So there can be a stronger than usual interest in all that is considered intellectual, including what we like to do for fun. We can enjoy communicating more so than usual, especially if we are face to face, but also by phone, online, or through social media.
But remember all bets are off under this influence, as Gemini and Mars are both quite unpredictable! Anything is possible. So try to stop and think before you communicate if it’s something important!
If you have an idea or plan you really need to sort of sell for whatever reason, you can feel quite powerful and persuasive during this time. But just know when to chill out, or a high energy conversion or discussion can turn into something frustrating or even a argument. While this transit will tame the intensity that Mars is known for, since Gemini is a more of a go with the flow kind of energy it will certainly spark up our inner brainiac.
This is the kind of energy that is super-charged up and the atmosphere is caffeintaed. And there’s a stronger than usual tendency to feel bored, especially if you don’t feel actively stimulated in some way. So you may feel more pumped up and have trouble relaxing or getting rest. It can prove difficult to turn your mind off, so sleep and even insomnia can be an issue. The sign of Gemini is often a nervous sign, so some folks might experience higher than normal waves of anxiety. Remember to find little ways to relax as often as you need to keep it under control.
There’s always a shadow side to any cosmic connection. Mars wants to light a fire under us so we can blaze through what we need to get done with serious intensity. However, the sign of Gemini has many different ideas all at once, so it can be difficult to just pick one thing, idea, or task and stick with it. The energy of Gemini is changeable and intelligent, and gives us the ability to see all sides to any given situation or problem. But we can get easily sidetracked, hoping from one unfinished project to another. This makes it a difficult time to make commitments, you just might like the idea of leaving your schedule more open during the this time.
Now this is a great time to communicate your needs and desires to whomever you need to, but especially your lover, due to Mars ruling over sexuality in many ways. But also it’s a good time to get your feelings out by writing them down, write a love letter or do some journal keeping
you’ll be amazed just how well you can express yourself during this time.
Mars rules over sexual activities, and the sign of Gemini will have us wanting to communicate those lustful thoughts out loud. So a little bit of dirty talk can go a long way, because during Mars in Gemini we can enjoy whispering naughty things in our partners ear, or sending out some sort of raunchy dirty text message, as words stimulate our imagination and this is a big turn on. Using language to build up anticipation can be very sexy now!
This influence can motivate us to work extra hard at bringing our ideas and goals, and breathe new life into future plans, so we’re ready to go after the kind of opportunities that can make things happen!
VENUS is the planet that rules over LOVE and often MONEY. The GOODESS Of LOVE moves into the sign of PISCES on March 26 through April 20th. PISCES energy can be more loving, tender, and compassionate, but often it becomes overzealous with partners and when in love. PISCES is often looked at as the Universal symbol for love in the ZODIAC, so it has its amazing points, as we can feel more free to love unconditionally and accept our lovers and partners, friends, family members, co-workers, and business partners for simply who they are. However, we may not know when to draw boundaries in love and with partners, or when spending money, so we need to be mindful.
While VENUS swims through the waters of PISCES, we tend to be more compassionate, but also are attracted to those folks who feel left out, overlooked, or even the ones who feel victimized. We tend to see people for who they are, without so much judgement or prejudice, but since it’s VENUS this applies more to those we love, and do business with.
Setting boundaries in our relationships and partnerships can be more difficult during this time, as we tend to give up what we need, to help other folks get what they want! As the walls dissolve between this physical world and other relams, we can have a hard time saying no, especially if our hearts are more open to the other person involved. But we can be champs at ignoring or avoiding people if need be, especially if we feel uncomfortable. And there can be more issues with Wishful Thinking, as we tend to believe what we want.
Love is not so easy to define under the sign of Pisces, so it can be more difficult to reach the object of our affection at times, both physically and emotionally. Love is not seen in black or white, but live, and in color and HD for that matter! It’s all or nothing under this influence.
While Venus is in Pisces we see love as all embracing everything and everyone, so we are better able to forgive and understand. Love is usually quite sexy under the sign of the fish, and we can be very seductive but also more easily seduced, or taken advantage of. We do tend to show more compassion to our partners now, as we seem to feel more tender and affectionate, but again at times we can still be hard to reach. But overall this can be a time for healing in love, however, there can be a longing for something that just can’t be defined, especially in our loving relationships, it’s more difficult to be or feel satisfied.
Borders, walls, and boundaries dissolve in our relationships and around our finances. As these lines blur the shadow side of this position becomes more evident. Some people can be more cunning, evasive, deceptive, and can easily victimize or delude you into believing something that’s absolutely not true.
Especially, if it’s about who they are, what they believe in or stand for, and what they want from you again in love or involving finances. Take heed, if someone tells you something that sounds to good to be true it probably is while Venus in the sign of Pisces. Don’t fall for lies and scams during this time.
The March Full Moon in the sign of Libra is rather special from an Astrological standpoint, as it takes place on March 20th which is also the Spring Equinox, which in the Northern Hemisphere is the official start of Spring, and it’s also the same day the Sun shifts into the sign of Aries in 2019, and Aries Season begins.
This rare Spring Equinox Full “Super” Moon is when the Moon actually comes closer to the Earth. It takes an interesting combo of timing and location to attain Super Moon status, as they appear to be super-sized and much larger and brighter than a regular Full Moon. But this one is extremely special because it occurs during the Spring Equinox.
A few days before the Full Moon people tend to get weird and emotional, as the pressure builds up a few days prior to March 20th, this Super Moon’s energies will really pump things up. Some folks will feel more anxious, excitable, and can get highly irritated. But it also brings in incredible opportunities for love and money. So hopefully, being made aware helps you to be better prepared, so you can find your zen and stay grounded. Then this Full Moon’s super strong energy won’t cause you so many problems. Knowledge is power!
This Full Moon is in the sign of Libra, which is about partnerships and relationships, be it romantic or business, family or friend, something might be revealed, or become very important. Many of you will be making decisions about jobs, marriage, divorce, dating, letting go or allowing someone into your life under this Full Moon. Those folks who are already in a committed relationship may have some major turning point this week. Some of you might even meet up with a new or old lover, who you share a deep romantic bond with. However, we are still under Mercury’s cycle in Retrograde, so be careful. Just because someone we once loved shows back up in our lives doesn’t mean we are destined to be together. Take it very slow if you happen to meetup with a old lover or friend, it’s probably a lesson and not for the long run.
The Moon is in the 1st degree of Libra, which is the start of something or a new beginning. There can be epiphanies and Ah-Ha Psychic moments that have some special meaning, usually these are about starting something new and fresh. Something comes to full bloom, and this puts us on a new path. Oddly enough, the day after the Full Moon, Venus, Libra’s ruling planet is forming a tense Square to its Cosmic lover Mars, which is Aries ruling planet, and the Sun will be just shifting into Aries starting on the Full Moon point! This can bring up conflicts and tensions between our need for independence and togetherness. The end result of these conflicts can lead to new beginnings. Here’s an interesting note, this Full Moon occurs right at the beginning of the sign of Libra, and next month’s Full Moon will be near the end of the sign of Libra, so there is way more to this story then you probably realize at this time. Perhaps, an ending around whatever is brought out will be understood more during April 19th Full Moon.
“Feeling anxious and irritated during a Full Moon is actually a normal physical response to the Moon’s gravational pull on the planet. Just like the tides of the ocean rise during a Full Moon, so does the water within our own bodies, hence causing a physical and emotional response.”
This is also a great week for healing, and maybe gaining some sort of understanding of what you need to help heal yourself. The Sun in conjunct Chiron, the “wounded healer.” A emotional wound may come up to the surface to deal with, revealing that something needs you attention. If you make some time to learn how to nurture yourself, there can be some amazing healing work done.
As I mentioned March’s Full Moon is in the sign of Libra, and this definitely puts a spotlight on our relationships (of all kinds.) This gives us an opportunity to take a step back and observe ourselves, and notice if we are including the needs and desires of those around us, as we continue on our own journey. There’s a stronger pull to be fair and just, as our focus is more so on strengthening our relationship ties and bonds. This is a very social energy and a good time to have some sort of celebration, maybe you could throwing a party and celebrate the Full Moon-Spring Equinox! Take some time alone with your BFF while you’re at it, and don’t forget to schedule some sort of romantic adventure out with your lover!
The Moon just barely in the sign of Libra will go Full Wednesday evening, check your time zones! And it will stay Full through late Friday evening on the 22nd, so it will be strong for 2 and half days!

Please Check Out My Blogs on Wednesday’s huge Cosmic Shifts, there’s a whole lot of changes coming are way!
Chiron often called the “wounded healer” is associated with wounds that cannot completely be healed. And in life we go through many experiences we can’t entirely fix or dismiss. Once something has been done, you cannot run away from it, you can only face it and deal with it, and you can’t undo or change the past. What’s done is done, and sometimes wounds leave scars. These scars become part of us, but we can’t let them dictate what we do or feel in the future.
In Astrology, Chiron’s purpose is to help us heal with the pain we’ve endured. But our healing is a very personal thing, and our emotional wounds become a story of past trauma and pain that helps identify who we are. Chiron is also known as a teacher, mentor, a guide in Astrological terms, and its lessons help us learn how to transcend our personal pain into the collective experience. Then it is no longer just our own pain but all of humanity’s. It’s not necessarily just about the struggles we have with our self-worth, it’s the compassion we feel for all those who suffer, due to a lack of self-worth. Chiron teaches us how to get through the pain, so that all of humanity can be freed from these wounds.
The Old Way
Chiron’s run through the sign of Pisces over the last several years has been about self-discovery, and learning how to endure through times of struggle when solutions weren’t readily available. We are now being challenged to transform and find healing through others acceptance of our past experiences with Chiron in Aries, feeling validated for our feelings
may have seemed impossible to deal with before, but also to have some kind of faith that a path through the pain and darkness can still lead us to light and healing.
The New Path to Healing
Now that Chiron is in the sign of Aries its handing out lessons that are about taking new steps to deal more directly with any struggles we have had to endure. Even though we may not know what the solution is about, we tend to act fast. We are attending a new school, learning how there are plenty of other ways to change just how we respond to such pains and trauma. For starters, learning how to change the way we express ourselves about our painful experiences, and what priority we give them as well, when you think of our life as a whole.
While Chiron journeys through the sign of Aries, our focus is on how we have the ability now to take action, and stand up for ourselves with coruage and bravery! Chiron in warrior sign Aries, often brings back the past when we were scarred in some way by abuse, aggression, violence, and even war. This influence has us reconnect to our suppressed frustrations or anger, and the part of us that’s felt defeated! It’s about our power struggles in relationships, but also our physical wounds, our short-comings and flaws, and when we felt stuck or like we lost something. It’s a time to be validated for how we have felt when wounded.
With Chiron in Aries our emotional wounds are brought back up and out from the Karma we have caused ourselves, and from the times we didn’t choose to listen to our inner voice, and did nothing differently or did nothing at all! It is about lack of action. Now is the time you can face these issues and these feelings head on and change the game. Being a victim under anything to do with Aries energy is a big no no, and we will fight for what we consider to be right, and find ways to deal with our problems head on. Or we will leave our pain completely alone to move forward, which could be a problem for some folks while Chiron is in Aries. Wounds that are not dealt with have a tendency to haunt us. Instead, be the warrior and fight, don’t give up or give in to your fear of what happens when you feel exposed or vulnerable. With Chiron in Aries we must work at being more strategic and deal with our wounds, or they will only come back up later to be dealt with once again.
The Cosmos illuminates the night sky on Jan. 21, as the beautiful Super Moon, Lunar Eclipse makes its appearance in a very powerful way!
The year 2019 started off with a New Moon, Solar Eclipse on Jan. 5, so we are now more than ready for the second part of the Eclipse phase to come together. Look for special signs and symbols from the Cosmos as to what your Eclipse messages may be. Something in your life is probably ending so you can create something new to come into your life. Eclipses bring with them very powerful cosmic energy to planet Earth and often trigger unexpected changes and surprises, so they bring important messages with them.
The Full Moon will be very close to the Earth this month, so this means the energies will feel quite intense compared to a normal Full Moon. This Super Full Moon as it’s called is also an Eclipse so you can feel this sucker in a big and very powerful way.
This Lunar Eclipse is at 0 degrees in the sign of Leo, and is the first Full Moon of the New Year! There will be two more Eclipses in July, back to back, so something profound is developing.
The Moon’s Karmic Nodes are points that are also linked to this Eclipse and are already known for bringing in more Karmic situations, so the truth is coming out, secrets are being revealed as information comes to light. So it’s a time of decisions if you are ready or not!
These kinds of Astrological connections haven’t come together like this for over 700 years! Even though we have Eclipses every year, it’s just the way they are connecting to other planets that are so rare.
We are all being affected by this energy be it in small or big ways, but something is happening in your “Astrological Birth Chart” regardless how it’s affecting your life, which started during the first Eclipse at the beginning of January. Now there is more to come and more information to be revealed as the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse comes together. As we get closer to this energy peaking you may just gain some sort of preview as to just what your personal transformation may be about.
To learn more about this energy and how it affects you why not get an “Eclipse Report” by Ruby, these energies are very interesting and can have long-lasting effects, so email or message me and ask, “How are the Eclipses personally affecting me?” and I will get a detailed report to you via email. (All professional Astrology Reports do have a few, so get with me for more info.)
Eclipse energy is often far-reaching, and can affect us for weeks, months, and even years after it occurs. This Eclipse gives us a chance to connect to something you might feel passionately about. The energy is potent and heightened and some folks will feel like they are on an emotional roller coaster. But just as new doors swing wide open with the Jan Eclipses, this next one on Jan 21 also can close some old doors as well. Jobs and relationships, for example, are often lost or quit, and new ones started during this time. Many of you will let go of something that has been holding you back.
There is something that’s part of our destiny that we are supposed to be doing and the Universe wants us to experience it, therefore, they will push us into some sort of new energy. So look for new people and situations to randomly come into your life during this Eclipse Season, they are coming in to help guide and protect you, so you can get on a better path and experience something new and improved that aligns with your destiny. The Universe is offering little subtle clues now as to what the Eclipse energy is bringing in for you. Here’s a hint, this all has to do with the old energies, behaviors, and ways of doing things is no longer working for us, and how the new energies are being laid out in front of us to live by and follow, this can help us thrive and be happier.
Think back to what was happening in your life last summer? What was the theme or situation back in July and August? This is a glimpse as to what energy the 2019 Eclipse is bringing in for you, the story is about to end so a new one can be written.
This is an amazing time to MANIFEST something, so get out a notebook and write down your INTENTIONS, and then FEEL them, based on what you would like to see happen next in your life and put emphasis on what you would like to let go of, what is no longer working for you. This higher energy is perfect to tap into and make things just happen. But also the very next day on the 22nd, there is an interesting connection between lucky Jupiter and beautiful Venus, this conjunction as it’s called is also Trining Mars, again good stuff! So bottom line this energy is at an unbelievably high point and it can help us create something positive in our lives.
Jan 22nd is a Lucky Day folks! So do something proactive, and be out and among other people, so the Universe can hopefully cross your path and bring something good to you. Don’t allow this day to pass you by without doing something! Many Astrologers are calling this the “great shift” just because of its energy alone, but also there is a major conjunction or connection between Saturn and powerful Pluto underway, and this energy is slowly building up now and will transform the world as we know it, as well as our own lives! The Jan 5th Solar Eclipse kicked this energy up into high gear and will continue to lead us to it peaks through Jan.12, 2020
Good luck and have a safe and happy Full Moon.
The Full Moon occurs as the Sun in Sagittarius forms a tense opposition to the Moon in Gemini.
Full Moon details: Here’s when the Full Moon will come together, and for those folks who like to Set Intentions with the Full Moon, the Moon will go VOID late Saturday night or early Sunday morning!
Pacific – November 22, 9:39 PM
Mountain – November 22, 10:39 PM
Central – November 22, 11:39 PM
Eastern – November 23, 12:39 AM
This means there is a push and pull situation between the signs energies and it affects each and every one of us.
The Sign of Gemini is about the lower mind and Sagittarius energy represents the higher mind.
A Moon in Gemini’s lesson helps us learn how to think more logically, while the Sun in Sagittarius is persuasive and helps us think in a more open-minded way, and more far-reaching.
The Sign of Sagittarius is about the quest for meaning and knowledge and coming up with ideas that expand our here and now experience or at the moment. Gemini is quite comfy in its own environment or neighborhood, while Sagittarius is stimulated and wants us to go explore and have adventures. If we ignore our feelings either one of these energies provokes within ourselves things can get thrown off. Ideally, if we try to find a balance between these two energies, then this is what the FULL MOON wants us to do.
This Full Moon is all about communication, our behavior, attitude, and our sense of adventure. There might be a feeling like something has been building up inside of you, especially with so many planets in Retrograde now or just coming out! So now is the time when the energy of the Cosmos is hitting its peak and we must express how we feel! Over the next few weeks, we will probably learn more about what these feelings were about more so, and what they mean for us and our lives.
But for now it’s going to be difficult to not express how we are feeling through communication, and just keeping our mouths shut might prove to be very difficult, not only because of the Full Moon but also due to mental Mercury (Gemini’s Ruling Planet) in Retrograde, under the most expressive sign in the Zodiac, Sagittarius! This means we have a stronger than usual need to express how we are thinking and feeling out loud! This can be problematic, however, because during an emotional Full Moon we aren’t logical we are overwhelmed with emotions and therefore we come off way more irrational, and our feelings can bubble up and get the best of us. With Mercury right now in Sagittarius, we can communicate these feelings out loud and live right in other folks faces, and we may not have the normal filters to think first before reacting!
Bottom line folks it can be a weekend of frustrating conversations with people telling it like it is, at least according to them anyway, and that also means misunderstandings. It’s important to think before speaking if at all possible during this time and I know I say that more often than I probably should, but heed my warning on this one, these energies are tense and intense feeling! But look at your possibilities and what’s readily available to you at this time, and since this Full Moon comes together the night of Thanksgiving basically we should be already focused on what we are Thankful for. These influences can be strong and throw us off our game, but I have always believed if you set your mind to it, you can learn from the planets more challenging energies or connections. Remember this “LIKE ATTRACTS LIKE”, so whatever it is you focus on especially during a lite up FULL MOON, is what you will bring to you. I understand some of you aren’t doing well in life, and it’s so difficult just to think something good can happen, and I am not one to be so idealistic all the time that I don’t see the reality of a situation, but I also know if you direct your energy out to the world and the Universe, asking and even expecting good things, then eventually something better will show up! Be your own observer and pay attention to your thoughts and how you are looking at life, and make sure your next thought is about something good!
The Full Moon is a time when things come to a close and there is an energy of hope and fulfillment of that which was started back during the last New Moon a few weeks ago. It’s an emotional time that is romantic and full of relationship issues. The Moon is Full and bright in the sky during this time, and that is symbolic of the “illumination” that is occurring in our own lives. Or when things come out into the open and are brought to light. However, again these feelings we have now and revelations are based off our emotions and they can suddenly erupt and like a light bulb coming on, we just realize something, have an Ah-Ha moment as it’s called, or an epiphany of some kind. This is a time of awareness and knowingness! It is a time to usually express ourselves and to let things out into the open. Of course, we may want to try extra hard this time around to use some special care when doing so, knowing that what we are communicating or expressing is not particularly rational as of yet.
This Full Moon is complicated and personal for us. Being in the Sign of Gemini we are more curious and seek out ideas and information like crazy. This can also bring on a sudden awareness into our lives as I mentioned, but we can feel rushed, hurried or like things are rather urgent with a” must know right now” kind of mentality. You may feel like you need to get important messages to others, and to finish some sort of project and make announcements. Just think before you say anything! Travel and communication are our main focus during this time, but again Mercury is Retrograde and is Gemini’s ruling planet and this causes tension in these areas of our life.
Mercury is Retrograde and the Full Moon is in a tense Square with warlike Mars during this Full Moon. The Sun is also heading towards a connection to Jupiter, and Mercury is heading to meet up with Jupiter and the Sun, while it’s in Retrograde. All of this suggests that we’ll be looking at past matters in new ways, but also acting impulsively which can really cause problems, so remind yourself to MOVE SLOWLY DURING THIS TIME!
On Thanksgiving Day, the Sun moves into the sign of Sagittarius so there can be a light-hearted energy to the Holiday. The Moon will be VOID which creates a relaxed energy, so lots of folks falling asleep lol. With the Moon in earthy Taurus, an indulgent energy that truly enjoys food, it’s likely a whole lot of folks will overeat (which is expected) but some of you are apt to fill your plates a second time, and then have dessert and still make room for leftovers and maybe a midnight snack. If you are cooking this year, seriously make extra food.
As we get closer to midnight Thanksgiving night the Moon will shift into more busy Gemini and will become FULL on the 23rd! A Sun and Jupiter connection can cause overspending if you are already not feeling it. This means folks who are going out for Black Friday sales are going to probably open their wallets way more than usual. Many Astrologers are predicting record sales this year for retailers on Friday and Saturday. If you plan on traveling this weekend, be extra careful as people are a bit confused, with the Full Moon and Mercury in Retrograde it’s all too easy for accidents to occur! Tempers can rise quickly as well with warrior Mars testing the Moon, Sun, and Jupiter over the weekend.
Next week things start to look so much nicer folks, so work together, as lots of things in spite of Mercury in Retro will run smoothly once again. All of these shifts can create a lot of energy that can throw us off center. So pay attention, take your time, ask lots of questions if need be, and if someone is getting upset or frustrated remember we are all in this energy together, and under Mercury’s weirdness things aren’t so black or white. You can defuse a lot of problems if you simply are patient, flexible, and understanding, otherwise you don’t want a Holiday Mess. Focus on the deeper meaning of Thanksgiving which is to simply be with our loved ones and give thanks for who and what we have in our lives.
Have a safe and good Holiday. Wishing all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving. ~Ruby
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.
