What a time to be alive as they say! The world has seemed to have gone mad in 2020, and to keep this exciting theme going the Cosmos is sending out some heavy-hitting energies this coming week starting August 10th. So forewarned is forearmed, and I have some information to pass on that hopefully will help you navigate through the tension Cosmic energies coming together!
Mars is making a tense Square to Pluto!
Mars the planet of aggression and passion is currently in its own sign of Aries, so this is warrior kind of energy. Pluto makes us thirsty for power and creates chaos, but it also brings deep personal transformation. Pluto is in security-based Capricorn currently stirring us up to gain power by marching to the beat of our own drum. This energy is like a match being lit to the flames that are already burning. Those who seek power or control on any level can get quite demanding, and just plain nasty, and especially manipulative during this time. We can struggle with any power plays or moves made on us by others, and we may have to deal with this kind of behavior from those who have some sort of authority over us, as we try to figure out just where we stand. This can be a time of great upset, trial, and tribulation. This influence can have us erupting in anger, and even rage! We are already seeing lots of upset globally, as people may not be able to handle the rage they feel deep inside over basic human needs and survival.
There are three frustrating squares between Mars and Pluto in 2020. The first one is on August 13th, but some will notice this energy starting up now!
When a planet meets up with Pluto they can get quite beat up by its demanding energy, and we can feel this energy and explore it deeply, as certain situations will play out bringing issues of power and control in strong focus in our lives! But war-like Mars loves a good fight, and this aspect challenges us to figure out who has the power and control in our lives. This can be with other people and society as a whole, (like things haven’t been already heated up enough with the powers that be in the US) but especially with those who have some sort of authority, power, or control over us, and of course those that want to! We might be asking who has the most power in the land. This square energy creates tension, but this helps us learn more about ourselves. Pluto has been connecting to many different planets this year putting us through major changes in our lives. We are already in a strong time of transformation, with powerful Pluto making its strong meetings this year also to stern Saturn and boosting Jupiter.
It’s most important that we pay attention to our reactions at this time, especially with authority figures. Try to figure out just what the real issues are underneath it all, and what’s causing our reactions. Anger is always about sadness, so perhaps you need to argue a bit so you can walk away from someone or something, and or even make a significant change! The best thing you can do is to remain respectful, and not fight below the belt while in this energy or it can get quite ugly! You also may want to think about controlling your responses to keep the damage down to a minimum, but you may not care, as there’s a stronger need to fight in the air right now. And some folks need to stick up for themselves and what they believe in, or for what is right. It’s something to definitely, ponder on, so you can use this energy for good.
Mars the planet that rules over our motivation, physical actions, assertive drive, ambition, passion, war, and sexual drive shifts signs on June 26, 2020, into more fast-paced, impulsive Aries all the way through January 6th, 2021. That is a really long time for Mars to be in one sign. Its extended stay in trailblazing Aries is due to its upcoming Retrograde phase, which starts on Sept. 9th and runs through Nov. 13th.
Mars is exceptionally comfortable in its home sign of Aries, as it’s ruler naturally. Our energy levels are stronger than usual, and we are more spontaneous, forward-looking, and bolder, and courageous under its influence, as it tends to get things moving so we are more active and confident. If we just follow our instincts, we can get things done super fast and precisely.
As Mars shifts into Aries this week, you’ll notice a definite surge in energy, motivation, and initiative. You don’t need anyone else to light that fire under you to get you going when Mars is transiting Aries. Talk about the ultimate self-starter. With this competitive, entrepreneurial energy in the sky, you will definitely want to begin a personal project. In addition to the remarkable energizer battery of Mars in Aries, you will also notice plenty of courage and fighting spirit. You will not back down from anything or anyone! Just remember, neither will others so expect an argument or a fight if there’s a situation you and someone else butt heads over. At least it will be an honest battle, though as Mars in Aries is not going to allow us to hide anything especially, our agendas.
After all, Mars is the planet of war, anger, and challenges, especially in its own sign of Aries the Warrior! So it tends to cause tension, restlessness, and anxiety for some. However, this also can be a very positive influence that gives us lots of energy. But we must be careful not to lose our cool. We have a strong competitive spirit as our goal is to win! But what are you battling for.? What are you winning in the end? Is it worth it? You are going to need to ask yourself these questions, as this influence can help us stay on task and motivated, but it also can cause impulsive behavior that can get people all fired up over much of nothing! Like things haven’t been heated-up enough out there! This energy could really make protests explode even more so, however with the Virus spreading like wildfire again, we are made to stay in once again, so we are going to need ways to get this energy out, so we don’t let it turn into anger.
Mars in Aries gives us a warrior-like attitude, therefore, its influence can spark up debates and discussions where we feel compelled to share our opinions and defend ourselves. Social media has already been exploding due to our current ongoing circumstances, so many of you will be sharing your frustrations, and there will be more arguing, of course. But remember, ask yourself if it’s worth it or not first.
When it comes to your sex life, expect a boost in libido. With Mars in Aries, we want immediate gratification and will do whatever it takes to get our needs met. There’s so much dynamic energy around this placement that you may wonder if there’s anything to worry about. Well, as with any planetary alignment, there’s a positive expression and a not so positive one. When Mars in Aries shines its light, we become fearless warriors or innovative pioneers. When it’s operating in the shadow, however, we can be rash, impatient, and selfish.
The darker side of Mars being in the sign of Aries is that we can sometimes be impatient, arrogant, impulsive, and self-centered! But if we can remember to take time out’s and not let our tempers get lit up so fast, as we can also be more authentic, enthusiastic, and straightforward. But we can also be quite narcissistic and not think of others as much, so don’t expect folks to be so worried about your “feelings”, as this is a time when we think ahead, and we are not as worried about the past. This can be challenging with the Sun and mental Mercury both in the sign of Cancer through the end of July! The sign of Cancer is all about being sensitive and worrying about other folk’s feelings, so the polar opposite of Aries and Mars, both. So we can feel pushed and pulled or even just reminded that we should care, but at the same time, we may not be feeling it!
If we pay attention and harness this Mars in Aries energy, we can be so productive and get so much done. Just remember people tend to take impulsive actions during this time, so often there are mistakes, mishaps, and accidents. It may take a week or so to get used to this energy, so we need to be a little extra careful, and take some extra precautions to stay safe, as some people are going to get more easily frustrated and aggressive under its influence. If we can take on a strategic kind of attitude, we can plan ahead and get things done in ways we never thought of, we have to be mindful and remember to not react without thinking things through first, which is always the most difficult challenge with Mars in Aries. Under the tense and frustrating energy we have already been dealing with due to COVID and the rioting, we must work extra hard to keep our cool and make sure that things remain calm, otherwise, it could be a bigger mess than we are already in.
For All Zodiac Signs Happy Birthday to all you Bulls!
How does this energy affect you?
While the Sun is in the sign of Taurus we may feel more sensual, receptive and determined. This shift causes the energies to slow down. The energy of this sign can help us to be more practical, grounded, and steady, which overall can be a great help with so many other heavy-hitting cosmic energies changing things up in 2020!
With the shift of the Sun in Taurus we get to take a moment and simply breathe. And we get to take a deeper look at tree he events unfolding around us, then we can look at complicated situations with some good old-fashioned common sense.
Taurus energy wants us to learn how to defend ourselves and resist things, but also how to love in a deeper, sensual, and more intimate way, and appreciate the physical world and all its beauty. The Zodiac Sign of Taurus is ruled by the Goddess of Love herself, Venus, for better or worse love is the most powerful energy there is after all. So we can be fiercely passionate and emotional during this time.
Over the next month, we tend to rely on what’s always worked in the past, and what’s tried and true. But we also need to move forward with the times. This influence is about integrating tradition with evolution in our lives. One thing about Taurus energy is we feel a stronger need to be more comfortable than usual. Take some time to set up space to Zen out, get all comfy and cozy for the next month and make sure you have somewhere safe to hang out. This cycle shows us what stability and substance can look like. We seem to be drawn to more practical matters now, so there’s not a whole lot of risk-taking going on.
However, mental Mercury is still in the sign of Aries, during this time, which is more motivating, as it keeps our minds working at a faster pace. The Sun in Taurus and Mercury in Aries might be a great mix of energies. It can give us the extra boost of energy and confidence we need, but also some reasoning skills so we don’t push too much. Either way with Mercury in Aries we have more get up and go, especially physically.
Under the Sun in Taurus, we have an opportunity to explore what we truly value and who we can depend on. And bring in this a Pandemic we’ve already had some time to do a little research. So we can pay more attention to what really matters in the material world, but sync our spirituality into it. This can be a lovely combination to work on balancing our Spirit, Mind, and Body.
As the Sun moves through this sign, we get to experience what it’s like to manifest our physical reality, as the seeds we plant take root. Our determination and need for security are quite strong during this time. Taurus energy is about loyalty, being comfortable, and using what’s been tried and true in the past, as we like sticking to what’s familiar. But the Mercury in Aries energy will help us look for new beginnings as well from time to time. We value the folks who have stayed by our side in good and bad times and will honor them more so during this time.
As the Sun moves through the sign of the bull, we get the opportunity to see the beauty in life. We’re more focused on the simple pleasures in life and how to feed the senses. Our senses are aroused and highly activated, so we can have a newfound appreciation for things like food, sex, music and entertainment, beauty, and anything that feels pleasurable! Being more repetitive and open to the things that make us feel fulfilled and alive can help us better appreciate life and the world. It’s a time to pause and stop long enough to “smell the roses”, rather than be in a hurry and pass things by. Being isolated won’t feel as difficult under this energy, so staying in will actually be more welcoming.
Enjoy all the beautiful things life has to offer while the Sun is in Taurus. Discover something beautiful about your life, find a new appreciation for those who love you.
The shadow side of Taurus energy is we can be more possessive and controlling, especially with our children and partners. We can be extremely stubborn and bullheaded, so it’s important to get out of our own way long enough and be willing to hear other people’s ideas and opinions.
While the Sun is in Taurus we should be making plans and setting goals that are built to last for the long-term. Put away something for a rainy day and for your future endeavors. This is not a good time to make life-altering decisions. Just plan for now, and maybe give it until the end of May to make your next big move. That’s when the energies will be a bit less dramatic anyway in 2020.
Mercury the planet that rules over our thoughts, and how we communicate finally shifts out of the sign of Pisces, (after it’s extended stay due to Mercury’s Retrograde cycle) and into Aries on April 10th, 2020.
The Cosmic Messenger, Mercury has been in the watery sign of Pisces since early February of 2020. But it hasn’t been very comfortable there, as Pisces is Mercury’s detriment, which is not compatible in Astrology terms. Mercury is logical and practical, while Pisces energy can make people feel lost and confused. So we ended up in a mental fog filled with illusions and strong emotions. Mercury’s energy was weakened down quite a bit, and it influences caused our thinking to become unclear. Mercury is a factual and rational planet, and Pisces is about dreams and feelings.
Then the energies became quite foggy and confusing in February when Mercury went Retrograde, which just made our fears and anxieties even worse. And the world sort of stopped around the 10th and 11th of March, when the reality of the Pandemic struck us here in the US. There were a lot of folks who at first just thought the whole ‘Virus” threat was the media hyping it up! So under Mercury in Retrograde in Pisces things were extremely confusing and misunderstandings were strong. It wasn’t taken seriously enough. Our minds were cloudy and illusions were all over the place, and this caused mistrust which leads to even bigger problems.
Once folks started to realize the Covid19 Virus was indeed a real threat and that it was spreading quickly, they went into full-blown panic mode! More so than usual. Our fears turned into reality, and it became more difficult to step out of our fear and take care of business due to Mercury still in Retrograde, and this all took place also while the Sun was in Pisces as well. Again, the widespread misunderstandings and misinformation had everything to do with Mercury the planet of communication being in its Retrograde phase while in the sign of Pisces. It was a recipe for problems that were fueled by the Saturn/Pluto Conjunction as well.
Now that Mercury is finally entering the sign of Aries, the logic returns and we can have more clarity. Aries is a Fire Sign, so it casts an intellectual influence on us. Hopefully, this will help us take action or some initiative, and we can let go of our fears and our gloomy attitudes. Then we can take care of business and work on saving lives. With Mercury in Aries, we are ready to fight this deadly disease, after all, Mars rules over Aries and it is the “God of War!”
Thoughts turn into Action
When Mercury is in Aries our minds move more quickly. In general, people act more impulsive under this energy, because they are in a big hurry and are not thinking rationally, when they’re moving so quickly! And we don’t necessarily think about our consequences first before we take actions, because we are more confident and courageous than usual.
Mercury is the planet that rules over communication, so while in Aries we can be more assertive when speaking or writing. Our opinions come from a place of ego more often under this energy, and our viewpoints are straight from the heart. So we tend to act and do whatever comes to mind when Mercury is in Aries.
Mercury rules our thoughts, so our thinking is fast, and often our physical actions and bodies are moving faster than we can keep up with.
The good news about Mercury being in Aries is we can rid the negativity that’s been plaguing our thoughts, as we search for ways to fix our problems. But together our thinking turns to look at the “whole picture”, and there will be a lot of people throwing out commands and giving out orders to move forward as quickly as possible! We are definitely more direct, bold, and energized under this energy, so we can gain clarity when we go after what we want and need now.
However, there can be a downside to this energy, as with any Astrological influence. Because we are moving at such a rapid pace and are more spontaneous with our reactions and words, we also are more prone to conflicts or even arguments. Again, Aries is ruled by Mars, the planet of war, so frustrations, debates, ego battle, and anger will show up, especially if we feel not heard or blown off somehow.
More importantly, while Mercury spends its time in warrior Aries, we should be focused on our plans and goals, but by reaching them over a period of time. More often than not we can start things very quickly, but also end them just as fast under this influence. Keep working and creating! This is a time for strategic moves. Stay aware and keep yourself centered and grounded, so we can approach others in a persuasive manner rather than try to overpower others.
Mercury’s April Connections
Mercury in Aries makes some rather interesting Astrological connections.
On April 11, Mercury forms a nice Sextile to Saturn, this brings clear thoughts, and we enjoy working and taking care of responsibilities. This favors organization.
When Mercury forms a Sextile with Venus in Gemini on April 18, and we are more charming and compassionate with others, and when we communicate.
On the same day, Mercury meets up in yet another Sextile this time with motivated Mars, and this gives us confidence and powerful thinking and communicating. This is a good time to be assertive with others, especially in your intimate relationships. Expressing ourselves more freely on the romantic front can be quite helpful. This can be with a partner or when are you want to seduce someone with words.
Later in April, some intense connections are being made involving Mercury that can cause frustrations.
On April 25, Mercury makes a tense square with shadowy Pluto. Then on April 26, Mercury Squares off with giant Jupiter. This causes some folks to act arrogantly, and things tend to get exaggerated, especially what we are communicating! If we go overboard or push too hard there can be consequences.
On April 27, Mercury will shift into the sign of Taurus. This will be great for finding ways to be comfortable and for nurturing those you love and care for with your words. But we can be overly expressive, brutally honest, and stubborn.
In the meantime, focus on taken care of business and working hard. Enjoy the turn Mercury spends on Aries, and the extra confidence, but remember to give people space both physically and mentally. Take time outs every once in a while and simply catch your breath, so you can avoid little mishaps and mistakes. The world is about to move much faster, which will be a welcome change.
There’s a New Moon occurring soon, which makes this the best time of the Lunar Month to set some powerful intentions. These Wish ListsIntentions can be about your future goals. Learning how to work with the cycles of the Moon can be a life-changing experience.
During a New Moon cycle, we should be asking the Universe for new beginnings, by planting seeds of intention from our heart and getting in touch with our higher-self. It’s a good time to be grateful for what we have, so we can work on manifesting what energy we want to come into our lives next. We can create whatever it is we desire, such as a better life, more money, happiness, or even love! It really doesn’t matter, but we have to take an action, both, physically and spiritually, together, to make it really happen and stick! And no, not everything you want is going to just magically appear. But you will more than likely get put on the path towards your wishes, even if you don’t realize it and that sometimes take time, so be patient. But it’s nice to know at least we are headed in the right direction.
Also, just sometimes when you Set Intentions with the New Moon energy amazing things happen and you get what you want very quickly!
At least by “Setting Intentions” with the energy of the New Moon, you’ve made it clear to the Universe what path you’d like to begin heading down and that’s a start. Then the energies will begin to line up to get you there, and if you continue to stay persistent and connected, and keep doing this work it truly can change your life circumstances for the better. I am like those old commercials, I don’t just talk about it, I have lived it! LOL! And this work, just works! It’s that simple.
The intentions that are set during a New Moon will set you on the right path towards your desires. The New Moon is a magical time of New Beginnings when you can recharge your goals with new energy. During the New Moon, we often experience some sort of major “energy shift.”
Here are some ideas on just how to Manifest under a New Moon:
1. Get clear about something you want and write it down.
2. Share your Intentions with someone in a supportive way, who will be encouraging.
3. Do something to demonstrate your commitment to your intention. For example, taking even a small action around what it is your asking to create! Send an email, move something in your house, or make a phone call perhaps.
4. Acknowledge that you did what you said you would, and then take the next step.
So have a conversation with the Universe (meaning your higher power, God, Source Energy, higher-self, Guides, Angels, etc), and work with the New Moons energy to help illuminate the path that will lead you toward your deepest desires. Simply ask to be led to what you’re choosing to manifest. Remember to be patient and simply allow the time needed, things don’t always happen right away, as we can get taken down certain paths to find our way to what it is we’re looking for. And sometimes magic just happens, you just never know!
What if you don’t know how to “Set Intentions” under the New Moon?
Follow the Steps below to learn how:
Step One: Clear Your Sacred Space
Clear the energy of the area or room you’re using to do any New Moon work. Think about where you are going to do this work, because we create an energy vortex wherever we sit or sleep. This is mainly why you feel so good in your favorite chair, because it’s comfortable and feels safe and secure, but also because you have created an energy vortex in that spot or space.
You are simply calling in some positive energy to work with. Burn some Sage or Incense and clear the energies! Maybe say a blessing or a special prayer that helps you feel cleared and protected. Next, close your eyes and breathe deeply and call upon your Guides, Angels, or higher power and ask to have your sacred space cleared, and then to fill up the special space you are working in with the energy of light, love, and protection. Never leave energy empty, always fill it with something once you’ve cleared it. Never leave a VOID when working with energy.
Step Two: Set the atmosphere
Set the mood for your New Moon Ritual and burn some special incense, light some candles (colors of candles do have different energies and meanings), and play some music that helps you feel spirituality connected. This can be a very different experience for everyone, just make sure to use whatever colors, music, and tools that make you feel calm, centered, and peaceful.
Step Three: Setting Intentions
You’re going to need a notebook, paper, or a journal and something to write with.
Now write what energy you’d like the Universe to bring in. Simply write your deepest desires, wishes, and questions. Think about what energy you’re trying to manifest or create. Write a letter, like as if you are talking to an old friend. Think about what energy you’re trying to bring into your life, and be detailed about what you want to see happen next in your life, and what energies you’re willing to work with.
As you’re doing this work and Setting your Intentions, here are some helpful questions you can think about. For example; ask for what you’re choosing or what changes you would like to see in your life? What are you or should you be calling in? How do you feel about what is happening in your life now? What do you want to change and create?
Think about your long-term goals and future. Be careful about focusing too much on the how, why, and when’s around how you will get what you want! Instead, focus more on what it is you are choosing and how you want to FEEL. See the end result! Only see the ultimate ending and again what it feels like when you receive what it is you are choosing! What you see in your mind’s eye, so don’t focus on how you get it, or the hurdles you have to jump, or sacrifices you may have to make. Just allow the Universe to shoulder the burden for you once you have requested what you want and let them take care of the rest. Have some faith in something. Rule # One is always energy follows thought, it will come to you in one way or another, or you’ll be put at least on a path towards your goals.
Step Four: Visualize
It’s time to visualize what you have written. Close your eyes and take some long deep breaths, so in your nose and out your mouth. Repeat this about 4 or 5 times. See the energy of your heart center, that’s in the middle of your chest, not over your pumping heart but your spiritual heart or commonly referred to as the “Heart Chakra.” Visualize yourself in what you are actually trying to create or manifest. For example: see yourself living in that new home, falling in love with that Soul-Mate, or driving that new car. Just don’t think it folks, make sure and FEEL IT, as if you were really experiencing what you’re visualizing!
Allow the Universe to show you which paths to follow over the next month, and look for any signs or symbols that will help you along your journey, so you may bring in what you truly desire and let go of what you don’t want! Don’t forget to show gratitude in some way and tell the Universe or Moon thank you in advance.
You also might gain some clarity around something or someone that is not serving your higher good, and they actually could be blocking you from your desires. So, in other words, pay attention after you’re done doing this work so you can clearly understand what the Universe is trying to show you!
The Sun has shifted into imaginative and compassionate Pisces on February 18, 2020, and remains there through March 20, 2020. So it’s officially Pisces Season. This energy is about connecting to your spiritual highest-self. It’s a sensitive, wistful, compassionate time. We are strongly in tune with our powers of intuition and emotions. Making decisions or commitments may not be easy under the influence, but tapping into our intuition is.
While the Sun is in Pisces our inner muse must be nurtured and connected too, this helps us heal and move forward. The veils between this world and other realms come down now and boundaries dissolve so we can feel energetically connected to other people and their energies.
It’s important to be kind to yourself and others during this time, and surround yourself with loving positive energy.
We are plugged into everything around us, because the veils between this physical world and other spiritual realms have dissolved. As those boundaries come down we must make sure to “shield” ourselves spiritually and physically. So if you consider yourself to already be a sensitive, Psychic, Healer, Empath, or whatever you call it, might I suggest putting up some sort of spiritual shields to block out outside energies.
Pay attention to when you sense someone else’s feelings rather than your own and don’t attach to them. We’re more aware of the energies around us, and we can be like sponges absorbing all of what we experience. We’re more sensitive and emotional during this time, so we tend to express ourselves in more creative spiritual ways.
It’s a good time to rid yourself of any fears or doubts you’ve been holding on to, so let go of illusions and daydreams that have no real way of ever coming true! Fantasies are just that, they are not reality. Instead, practice connecting to your higher-self through spiritual practices, and by getting involved in creative endeavors.
Allow this energy to flow and just be. Get involved in things like music and energy healing, or doing anything creative or entertaining. This can help us feel more vital, and raises our personal vibration. It’s important to take time-outs and listen to our intuition now, but if we choose to ignore these feelings or messages from the Universe, we can become anxiety-ridden and easily frustrated.
Our bodies and minds sync deeply together now, so try to stay with the beat of the Universe, as Pisces energy is more ethereal and dreamy feeling. Our dream world both awake and asleep can be very strong, pay attention and take notes. Those who have crossed often show up to visit during this time, (especially, since we are just started in a Mercury Retrograde cycle, also in the sign of Pisces!) as these energies tend to bring back things from the past.
The more shadow side to this energy is we can feel more like escaping our reality, so this can be done with drugs or substances that only harm us in the end. We are more vulnerable to the world’s harsh reality and energies, which can make us feel emotionally down and out. Some folks may start feeling so down that they get depressed by this influence. It’s important to connect to your spiritual self (not to sound like a broken record) to keep your vibrational energy higher and avoid these pitfalls.
To do well in this energy you should allow things to just be, and stay aware of your surroundings. Ask yourself what your resisting and stop or it will persist.
On February 9th, 2020 we have a Full Moon in Leo at 20°. This Full Moon is also making a harmonious trine to motivated Mars in Sagittarius, so this is a strong time for romance and sex!
This Full Moon is when the Sun in Aquarius makes a tense opposition with the Moon in Leo, it is a time to find a balance between our friendships and romantic lives. We need to work on expressing ourselves both in a personal and impersonal way. But Full Moon’s canfeel quite stressful and excitable. So we need to find coping skills for our nerves, and under this particular Full Moon we should find healthy ways to express all the intense emotions we might be feeling, without roaring about it.
This is a strong, potent Full Moon in the sign of Leo, it’s a proud and extremely individual energy. We are not settling well with just being one of the team now. It can make you feel compelled to follow your dreams, heart’s desire, and joy, no matter who or what obstacles are or get in your way. But I must caution you to not let your emotions get out of control, or you can get extremely aggressive, egotistical, or mean. Luckily, this energy can actually help you to be more cautious, so you can look at situations more carefully before making any important moves.
This Full Moon is about creative self-expression, and it can be a major boost to our ego, as we receive attention through pleasure and romance. It’s important to check yourself and not allow the decisions you make to come from a place of ego. Go with the flow! And if you have some sort of clarity, or random Ah-Ha moment than pay attention. But if you are feeling more frustrated or angry, then you have some more soul-searching kind of work to do.
During this Full Moon time we can be intensely devoted to someone, but the Moon hooks up with sexual Mars as well, and we can feel strongly sexual and attracted to others as well, so this can be a strong time for infiadelity. And there can be a deeper need to meet up with otherpeople, or to just get our freak on! Pay Attention folks, we can feel a stronger than usual urge to merge with others, and you can feel more brave and daring, which makes it easier to make declarations of love and adoration. So if you are really feeling it, then go for it! But remember your consequences.
This Full Moon illuminates our emotional issues, so there might be something we need to end, release, or bring to an end. Or perhaps there is just something we need to acknowledge, or maybe we just need to make an adjustment of some kind. We may have a new and fresh perspective under this illumination, so many of you are going into an old situation in a whole different way, and you can see things much more clearly. Full Moon’s tend to bring skeletons out of the closet, so the truth comes out! And this Leo Moon energy is about being real and authentic, so lots of people will see things that have been hidden, secret, or denied come out this weekend!
I’m not crying, you’re crying!
This Full Moon is a highly emotionally charged one, so we can feel extra sensitive and vulnerable. It illuminates over some pretty touchy cosmic points that affect us quite profoundly. Under the sign of courageous Leo, you can feel more bold, but also be quite stubborn. This Moon isn’t necessarily a time to be strong and silent, it is a time to express yourself in some way. But our emotions get pulled on right from the heart, and it can be more difficult to stay strong at times. The best thing to do is release what’s no longer working for you, let that bad relationship go, forgive and move on. Or let go of feeling badly over something, whatever it is, this Full Moon encourages us to let go and move forward now!
Loving Venus is also heading towards an alignment with wounded healer/teacherChiron, both in the sign of Aries at the time of the Full Moon. So through our interactions with people, we are learning how to grow and heal our emotional wounds. And since we have so much fire in the sky right now, a lot of these experiences for many of you will be sexual in nature!
The planet Mars is currently in fellow fire sign, Sagittarius. This can give us energy, and help us stay motivated, as it pushes us to get moving. The Full Moon is forming a rather beautiful Trine energy to passionate Mars. This really pumps up the energies and gets us moving since both the Moon and Mars are in fire signs! This makes for a good weekend to get things done.
This Moon/Mars influence is a boost of energy, courage, and confidence that we so desperately need right now. It’s encouraging us to go after our dreams and what we truly desire, and for moving forward in our lives. But we must remember Mars is naturally aggressive, and this means we are not afraid of a fight! Try not to get too frustrated, or it can trip you up emotionally and take you to a whole new level of angry! The good news is if you’re feeling stuck and haven’t been able to get something accomplished this energy can finally help you work out a plan.
Mars is currently in the sign of beliefs and faith, Sagittarius. So we might be fighting our faith or are just in a crisis of faith. It doesn’t matter what you believe in, faith is faith. Get out of your comfort zone and find what makes you happy this weekend, and if you’re not sure then ask the Universe to show you!
Just remember you might think you need to be honest under these energies, but in all actuality we are just expressing what we believe the truth to be from our perspective. 2020 is the year of integrity, after all. However, if you decide to be brutally honest just to hurt someone or to be mean, it will probably backfire on you! And that’s not ok! Instead, work at being kind, and help motivate others, spread some good energy around and you’ll be better off for it.
This romantic Full Moon in Leo up in the night sky is symbolic, as it lights up our emotions in our own lives. But of course, our feelings are raw and new, so whatever clarity we receive or revelations we have are going to be emotionally based. This is a time when these emotions can suddenly be brought forth into our awareness or consciousness. It’s a very strong time to express our thoughts and ideas and to let things out. Over the next few days or so, we will understand more about what we are feeling and experiencing now under this Full Moon.
For the weekend, we should take a step back and chill with our feelings. But again we might feel pushed to express our thoughts, (that’s where Setting Intentions with the Universe comes into play) so if you do happen to express yourself just try and use some restraint and extra care.
Just remember this is not a time when we are rational, it’s all emotional reactions under a Full Moon, hence why you need to find a healthy way to release all this energy in a more controlled manner. That leads us right back to making out a Setting Intention list. Learn more about this practical yet magical process over at https://wp.me/p2dXxi-1vj
Have a beautiful, safe, and blessed Full Moon. ~Ruby
The Goddess of Love herself, Venus is shifting into the first sign of the Zodiac, Aries on Feb 7th.
The planet Venus rules over our love lives, but it also has a strong effect on how we love others period. This can be with family, friends, co-workers, and members of our community even. It also happens to have a lot of influence over our finances and anything involving our money.
It’s important to be thicker skinned under Venus in Aries, especially in our relationships and how we relate to others. There is no sugar-coating things under Venus in the fiery sign of Aries, and our words can sting. But Aries energy isn’t necessarily about being petty or mean. It’s just time to lay your cards on the table and say things like they are, or at least the way you see them. Our desires are strong, and we can express ourselves in such a way that it’s more spontaneous, enthusiastic, and direct! And if someone pisses you off, you can almost bet you’re going to make sure they hear about it! We don’t hold much back in our relationships during this time.
Venus in the sign of fast-moving Aries, can bring fresh new energy into our love life and around our finances. This cycle brings love in rather quickly, so relationships both new and old are more direct and spontaneous. This can have us acting more impulsive, passionate, extroverted, and bold in our romantic adventures. There’s a stronger desire for constant change in both our romantic and social lives. But we can make friends more easily and are quite fond of receiving and giving love and admiration. We can feel more motivated, and enthusiastic, and be a source of inspiration to lovers, partners, good friends, or co-workers.
While we are under the Venus in Aries influence we don’t worry about the past or bother looking back, instead, it’s a time to move forward. “Carpe Diem” is our motto for now, which means “Seize the day” while Venus is in Aries. As every day is new and full of opportunities, so every moment matters.
You can be very easily influenced by the opposite sex now, (or by someone more masculine than yourself) as it’s a brand new day, this is an opportunity to initiate something. The gushy, mushy kind of stuff is not so appealing during this time, and we don’t want to deal with apologies, as we simply enjoy the chase and conquest! But Aries energy is also about emotional security, so we are looking for longstanding relationships and love that’s going to last, but it has to feel new and fresh, or we can get bored quite easily and end up moving on to someone else.
Under this fiery influence, we are more interested in the hunt intuitively and naturally, especially when it comes to matters of the heart. Since we can feel more bold, courageous, aggressive, impulsive, and impatient in love, so our love life heats up and they can get rather interesting.
Some of you might feel bold when communicating, but more reserved about your deeper feelings or emotions. If you’re feeling badly or insecure you can get aggressive and downright mean, especially if someone isn’t expressing love back, or doesn’t recognize that you’re trying. This influence effects our way of thinking as well, and we can be much more strategic, so we can be quite cunning when it comes to matters of the heart or in financial dealings.
If you are already in a long-term relationship you can use this fiery energy to light some passions back into your relationship. If you’re single get ready, lots of people will hookup or have sexual relations, (after all Aries energy is ruled by Mars, the planet that rules over sexual activity) but the fires don’t burn forever and your new hookup can sizzle out fast!
It’s a time to make sure things keep moving forward, especially if you want some sort of new commitment in love or money. But also pay attention to what will happen in the long-term in new relationships, unless you are just looking for a hookup! Then have fun!
It’s a good time to enjoy the finer things in life, you can show off a little now, so indulge in luxury and extravagance, we can have an easy come, easy go kind of attitude when it comes to money and all things financial.
Under the Aries energy, we are much more direct and blunt, but this involves Venus, so it’s going to come out more so in our relationships, but remember words can sting. Desires are strong and expressed more spontaneously and enthusiastically. Try to avoid throwing temper tantrums with your nearest and dearest, and watch yourself for being too harsh or coarse with those you love.
2020 definitely started with a bang, as the energies have been somewhat unhinged. There’s been plenty of stressful situations to deal with. This is partly due to Uranus, the planet of changes, shocks, and surprises making so many connections to the other planets over the last month. But we are finally past the intense January New Moon energy, that was connected to Uranus. These challenging energies have been quite difficult to get through, but you passed the test! Now is the time to join together and raise the vibrational energy of our planet and heal ourselves.
During the month of January, we also had to deal with the super-intense Eclipses, and a strong meeting between Saturn and Pluto, which will continue to playout through most of the year! Both of these Cosmic events have brought about many unexpected changes and endings. And there have been many sad and even tragic deaths as well, as lots of people and animals have been crossing over. Often Eclispe season seems to be a doorway where us humans tend to leave to the go home.
Mercury Retrograde! February’s energies might be a bit easier to navigate, but we will have to deal with Mercury’s Retrograde (backward) phase that technically starts on February 16th. And starting Feb 4th, the pre-shadow period before the actual Retrograde begins, and we’ll have to deal with communication breakdown of all kinds, so the energies can get wonky! Mercury rules over our way of thinking and processing. It also tends to mess with anything electronic, so things like our phones, computers, or Wi-Fi all can act strangely. This cycle often brings up issues with water as well. There can be some adjustment time, as our perceptions change. This cycle lasts through the end March.
February Full “Snow” Moon There’s a potent Full Moon aka the Snow Full Moon on February 9th in the sign of Leo. This is a time of passion, as we are motivated by a sweet trine connection the Full Moon makes to heated-up Mars. This can give us an extra boost of energy we so desperately need to help us get something going. This influence helps us tap right into our intuition, so we can be quite Psychic. Pay attention!
This is a time when we can gain more insight and clarity about our life’s purpose, and what we are supposed to be doing. Hopefully, this influence can give you some direction, and help you find the right paths to follow that will lead you to your goals and dreams. It’s important to trust your gut instincts and inner guidance during this February Full Moon.
If you were having any issues around Jan 24th in your relationship, those energies might pick back up and tensions can arise, and you can lose control and have a bit of a meltdown, or you may get quite angry! Stay away from people who get easily agitated or upset, don’t allow them to take you there, simply ignore and move on. Leaving those situations alone will save you from much unneeded stress. This also is not the best time to be traveling, especially with Mercury slowing down to enter its Retrograde phase. There can be delays and issues. And the weather will be quite unpredictable, so pay attention to weather updates.
Full Moon Times to Set Intentions February 9, 2020 Eastern Time – 2:33 a.m. Central Time – 1:33 a.m. Mountain Time – 12:33 a.m. February 8, 2020 Pacific Time – 11:33 p.m.
Setting Intentions Make sure to Set some Intentions or make out your wish lists on or around February 9th, with the Full Moon’s energy. If you’ve never tried this kind of work, and you’re thinking what is she talking about, well then try it! It’s simply magical work. Release the things that are no longer working for you, or that aren’t serving you. This can be a good time to rid yourself of any old attitudes, or beliefs that are not helpful to you. So if you’re feeling blocked or stagnant, (which is very common during a Mercury Retrograde cycle) then get to setting those intentions! Ask the Universe to bring you something more positive to work with. You can ask the Universe to help remove what’s blocking you from the perfect job or relationship, for example. You can ask to let go and release whatever you want.

February 1 A lot of the stress we felt from the weekend of Jan 10-12 will finally start to break apart, and you might finally feel a release from the stress.
February 2 – 4 Important decisions that are made during this time can lead you into something more happy and healthy, which can make your life better in some way.
February 3 – 4 The Universe is going to be sending out strong messages and signs to help put you on the right path in life. If you ask the Universe to show you something more specific or to give you the information you need, you’ll probably get an answer within a very short amount of time. But you have to ask! Over these few days many of you will get answers, so pay attention and watch for signs, symbols, synchronicities, and messages.
February 7 Our love life and often financial situations can get quite a boost of passion when Venus shifts into the fast-moving sign of Aries. If your Sun, Moon, or Rising sign is in Aries, you’ll be feeling this energy even more strongly for the next three weeks, so make it work for you!
Have a good week folks, ~Ruby

Rubys Astro Readings SUN ENTERS AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18
Here shortly, the SUN shifts gears into more future-thinking AQUARIUS.
Happy Birthday to all my AQUARIUS peps, you original, unique, quirky shinning selves are going to be looking pretty amazing with Mercury and the Sun both in your sign!
Welcome to AQUARIUS SEASON!
This month-long cycle keeps us hungry for knowledge and experience. We now start looking for new ways to do things, as we search for what feels original, different, and unique! We become increasingly aware of what isn’t working anymore in our lives and strive to find new ways of looking at life, as our minds are now open to new perspectives. With the Sun in Aquarius, you may feel more even-tempered, artistic, and sociable. So our general attitude to life is more peace-loving, humanitarian, detached, and concerned.
There can be a stronger urge to mingle again, since we don’t feel as heavy or weighed down as we did under the Sun in Capricorn. But we can get rather nerve-wracked and anxious if we start focusing on what we are lacking in our lives. Turn any worrisome energy you might experience into something you can manifest, by setting goals and making plans. Tackle one thing at a time and work on yourself, it’s much easier to think about ourselves when the Sun is in Aquarius because of we more detached emotionally, and can put our feelings to the side just long enough to take care of important business.
There’s a whole bunch of planets in the sign of more grounded Capricorn currently, which doesn’t mesh well with free-spirited AQUARIUS. Under the Sun in Aquarius we can’t stand all the structure and order, it’s just too rigid, cold, and restrictive. This is the sign of freedom and independence, exactly the opposite energy.
Now that it’s officially AQUARIUS SEASON we as individuals are going to be seeking more independence. We’re going to work very hard now to free ourselves from any restrictions, limitations, and inhibitions that keep us feeling blocked or constrained, rather than safe and comfortable. It’s time to get out of your comfort zone and look way into the furthest parts of your mind.
There’s a lot of movement and excitement usually during AQUARIUS SEASON, as amazing things are about to be discovered! We tend to be way more open-minded now and can experience awareness or knowing. As Ah-Ha moments and epiphanies occur more often, after all the sign of AQUARIUS is ruled by the planet of divine Messages and the higher mind, Uranus! You know those moments you suddenly realize something, or rediscover something you weren’t aware of, or perhaps had forgotten, well this is that time!
Many of you haven’t been so tapped into your spirit, with the Sun and mental Mercury both in the Earthy sign of Capricorn. Now with mental Mercury in the sign of AQUARIUS and the Sun, we get the chance to stretch our minds, bodies, and spirits. So enjoy it!
Some things you can do with the Sun in AQUARIUS is to try to express yourself more openly and outwardly. Be open to trying new ways of communicating and expressing yourself, so you can flow better with this energy. This is a time where we are often quite eccentric. Maybe try to do something more investigative, and take the time to learn something, involving Science of Astrology, this is also a great time for mind-bending adventures, So studying anything Metaphysical or “New Age”, as lots of people tend to take a look at the occult during this time. It’s just a good time to study anything new, different, bizarre, or innovative.
This is a time of self-expression, as our thoughts and actions both, drive our ambitions. Conventional or traditional values are changed up during this time, with fresh and exciting horizons ahead we are motivated by spirit. Get out there discover, learn, and enjoy it!

December Astro Forecast
December 2 – Jupiter enters Capricorn Jupiter joins up with the heavy-hitting planets Saturn and Pluto in ambitious Capricorn. It’s time to pay attention to the areas of your life that you want to build a solid foundation on, so focus on what you want to achieve in the coming New Year. You can meet people who help you get ahead in one way or another. Just remember any hard work you do now will be rewarded. Even though we can receive some much needed help, with so many planets in the sign of Capricorn, there can be challenges as well. Especially, when those who are of authority or who are in charge band together with their combined powers. To rise above these tests and challenges, and meet your goals, you will need to stay focused and concentrate. Keep things practical, and be savvy and strategic, this is not the time to be impulsive or to just wing it!
December 3 – Venus sextiles Mars Venus the Goddess of Love and relationships is also in the sign of, you guessed it, Capricorn. Her Cosmic Lover Mars, the planet of aggression, action, and desire is actually in Scorpio right now, and together these two make a powerful couple. This can be a beneficial influence that helps you meet new people romantically. It can help those of you who are already involved in a committed relationship to strengthen the bonds you have already built.
December 8 – Sun squares Neptune Neptune is the planet that rules over your dreams, fantasies, imagination, and spirituality. With the Sun shining its energy on Neptune, things can feel rather confusing and some of you may feel down and out. But this can be an amazing time to escape your busy life, and get rid of all the distractions, and unplug, or just relax. Using your mind and logic won’t help you find the answers, instead, try a little creativity and some daydreaming perhaps. Don’t worry, because even if you don’t know where you are going or exactly what you want. All of us need some downtime to replenish our energies, so find a place of peace and relaxation, and take a moment to breathe and simply be. The rest of the world will just have to wait.
December 9 – Mercury enters Sagittarius Mercury is the planet of communication and expression. When it shifts into the more optimistic sign of Sagittarius are heads fill up with new ideas and we can enjoy fun conversations that may just help us learn better about how to reach our goals. Keep things practical and stay grounded, but express your enthusiasm and you might just succeed. Sagittarius energy demands truth, so all of us will appreciate a good honest discussion at this time. Just be careful not to overdo it, and share your whole life story, as giving to much of your business away can cause problems. This energy can have us telling way to much truth, and then we have to apologize for it later. If you can remember to use tact you won’t feel regretful later.
December 11 – Venus conjuncts Saturn Saturn is about taking responsibility as it holds us accountable. So when Venus connects to stern Saturn there can be challenges in your relationships. But you also can gain clarity about the people in your life, this can help you understand better what you want and don’t want.
December 12 – Full Moon in Gemini This Full Moon is handing out information and brings news that can make you doubt your current plans. This week is going to be moving very fast, and you might feel stressed out and overwhelmed! But it can also help open your eyes and see the truth about situations that you need to be done with. This is anxious energy, even more so than normal, so some folks can be extremely emotional and high strung, so whatever they are communicating can be illogical. Make no important decisions during this time! Take things nice and slow, and review all the info you have gathered. Once this Full Moon has passed you will be able to see the whole picture, and then you will know what you should do next.
December 13 – Venus conjuncts Pluto Venus rules over our relationships and Pluto is about the power and control we have. Conjunctions are often about new beginnings. But this influence can be about our projects, goals, or other people. You can feel powerful during this time, and your energy can run high. If you choose to let go of what’s broken or not working in your relationships, then it might just transform and come back together into something new and stronger. But this is strong powerful energy to grab ahold of, if you embrace it you may just be able to achieve your goals. Keep your heart open to the ones who love you back.
December 15 – Jupiter trines Uranus Jupiter is about expanding one’s horizons, it wants to help you improve your life. When it shifts into the sign of Capricorn our goals become our main focus. This energy can help you rebuild something in your life, into something different or even new. The world opens up to new possibilities, so it’s a good year to make long-term improvements. Keep your options open and be ready as opportunities show up. Other people are a valuable resource during this time, as they can help you at least begin your new journey.
December 19 – Mars sextiles Saturn The action planet Mars is in powerful Scorpio. As it makes this connection to stabilizing Saturn in ambitious Capricorn, all our hard work can finally pay off, as help comes from those of authority or positions of power. This helps us put the finishing touches on any projects or plans we have been working on for a while now. If you share your ideas and visions for your future plans and goals, you will probably get the help you need to realize them.
December 20 – Venus enters Aquarius Venus the planet of Love herself, enters the more emotionally detached sign of Aquarius. This is a very interesting influence because you can actually meet someone during this time to love that shares the same values and moral codes as you, but you also need your partner to be your friend under this energy. Since we tend to be more social during this time, it is easier to meet people at events (hello Holidays) as long as you participate in activities you enjoy. If you are already committed, this is a good time to work on strengthening the friendship you have with your nearest and dearest.
December 21 – Sun enters Capricorn The Sun enters the more practical sign of Capricorn and this marks the beginning of the Winter Solstice. This is a magical time, (all the Solstices are) but it’s best to take this time to get quiet and reflect on this past year, think about what you are grateful for. Now is the time of the year when we tend to hide out, the winter months are about staying out of the cold. But with so many other planets in the sign of Capricorn, we should be planning and preparing for 2020. Think about your dreams, goals, and plans and what you would like to accomplish. This is a fiercely ambitious influence that can help you get ahead if you work with its energies in the right way
December 24 – Sun trines Uranus When the radiant Sun shines on the divine messenger, Uranus, we can have way more energy and courage to do what we want, how we want! All you are required to do is go after your goals and take advantage of this influence. Look to your soul tribes and those who are of support. Make changes, and be open to adjustments and change up your plans if need be, make them stronger and better, as there are people around during this time that are willing to assist you.
December 26 – Solar Eclipse in Capricorn A powerful Solar Eclipse occurs on this day in the sign of ambitious Capricorn, as this influence can help you reconnect to the world around you. For most of us, the outer world is about our careers, for others, it is school or volunteer work that takes up most of your interactions. The Solar Eclipse occurs at the same time as the New Moon, this means it is an especially strong time for drama but it’s also a new beginning. This New Moon energy is all about achieving your goals, by taking step by step plans to reach them. It’s a good time to decide what you are going to take responsibility for and what you don’t. This is a time to take actions that help you make your life more secure, by accomplishing what is practical. Over the next few weeks while the light of the Moon slowly increases from this New Moon to a Full Moon, stay focused and put your time and energy into something you really want to see grow and build up to be strong, or make it about something that is really important to you. Staying consistent and focusing on the same goals over this two week period can bring amazing results, or at the very least put you on the right path towards achieving your goals. Everyone’s journey is different.
December 27 – Sun conjuncts Jupiter Every year, the Sun shines its light on optimistic Jupiter. This year, of course, it’s meeting up with the sign of practicality and security, Capricorn. Jupiter is all about its generosity as it expands the energy of the sign it is in, and it brings along helpers, guides, angels and whatever you can think of to help us build upon these Capricorn energies. This is a great time to work once again on your plans for your future, to reach goals that have to do with the long-term. This energy wants you to get real and stick to a plan that is in the here and now.
December 28: Mercury enters Capricorn When the planet of Communication enters the sign of practical Capricorn, we can learn what is working and what isn’t. Stay focused on your goals, but also get out and do some networking, especially with folks who have already done or accomplished what you hope to achieve. You can gain some valuable advice and they can lead you to meet the right people who can help you. All your hard work will be rewarded soon, so stay focused, and don’t give up.
