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!
March 20th, Full Moon Occurrance Times
Eastern Time Zone 9:42 p.m.
Central Time Zone 8:42 p.m.
Pacific Time Zone 6:42 p.m.

Setting Intentions with the Moon
If you are one who enjoys working with the Full Moon or Lunar energies every month than don’t miss this magical rare Super Full Moon event! There are portals opening with these energies since it’s also the Spring Equinox, and the start of the Astrological Calendar Year with the Sun shifting into Aries! So remember to Set Intentions to release something that might be holding you bsck from love, prosperity, luck, good health, etc.
Have a blessed Full Moon and a Magical Astrological New Year! ~Ruby
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.
MERCURY JUST STARTED WHAT’S CALLED IT’S SHADOW Period on October 29th! NEARLY 3 WEEKS PRIOR TO ITS ACTUAL RETROGRADE CYCLE!
November 16 to December 6, 2018, in Sagittarius and Scorpio.
This affects all of us, how does it affect you?
Mercury the planet of communication starts to slow down its speed once again, and prepares itself by coming to a screeching halt 2 to 3 times a year, and then proceeds to appear to move backward for a 3 week time, and this is called the RETROGRADE period!
But there’s a time frame before and after it’s actual RETROGRADE cycle called the SHADOW PERIOD, that starts 3 weeks prior to its Retrograde cycle and 2 weeks after, and during these cycles there can be more confusion as we adjust to MERCURY slowing down as it can cause sort of a ruckus, miscommunications, and electronic snafus.
With MERCURY’S slow down and stopping to go into its Retrograde cycle, we need to be patient with other folks and their confusion, frustration, mistakes, and so on, and don’t forget to do the same with yourself! Things like computers, smartphones, cars and all things electronic can be glitchy or have minor annoyances. It’s just best to wait it out because this problematic phase will pass and all these snafus and glitches usually will correct themselves. One key rule during the Shadow period is to not overdo things and make too big of a deal out of it if you can, (unlike me lol) because these issues are usually temporary!
With MERCURY RETROGRADE our thinking is thrown off, and so is our perception of things. So mistakes, misunderstandings, and problems involving communication are likely. It’s not a good time to sign contracts, make new agreements, buy anything brand new, or begin new projects. It’s an excellent time to research, revisit, plan, and prepare for something later. Remember Mercury likes to take us back literally to our past when it’s in Retrograde, so back to old friends and lovers, and even behaviors and lessons to learn something we didn’t the first go around.
Some Astrologers consider Mercury to be stronger when it is Retrograde because it is closest to the earth than at any other time during its orbit. So Mercury will be between the Earth and the Sun. The fact that Mercury is strong though, doesn’t mean life will go smoothly, hence Mercury Retrogrades bad reputation. An Astrologer once described Mercury Retrograde as Mercury going down into the Underworld and making us walk through that shadowy part of our mind and consciousness!
Since Mercury rules over our thoughts, minds, and how we process information this theory makes a whole lot of sense. We have to adjust to this period to understand it’s odd influence on our planet and our minds, it’s like putting on night vision goggles and discovering a whole new world that our minds have to explore and relearn how to understand. And each Retrograde comes with its own set of lessons for us to learn from, because each one is in a different Zodiac Sign, and that changes them up a bit.
We should try and understand that Mercury slows things down while in Retrograde, as our minds start processing information differently during the Shadow phase, we have to adjust to the way we see things and use our minds. This has a strong impact on how we communicate, and around anything that involves the way we communicate like technology of all kinds, and traveling as well. There can be more delays and misunderstandings during all of Mercury Retrogrades cycle honestly, as the energy out there can feel just stuck, off, or stagnant. Give yourself extra time when traveling and driving, be cautious and careful out there to avoid mistakes and accidents! There are also a lot of accidents during a Mercury Retrograde Shadow period simply because people feel discombobulated, and lose their focus, so take things slow.
Take care of your body and well-being, some folks get sick due to this transit because they are trying to pack too many things in their schedule and simply can’t keep up like usual and become overwhelmed and stressed out! Only take things day by day if at all possible.
One rule of thumb you can start to do now is to make sure everything you own that is electronical is up to par and has been serviced or backed up in some way, including your cars. If you have to travel during this time plan ahead and expect delays so you are not time crunched and avoid problems.
You’ll notice a lot of Astrologers will say “Don’t do this!” or “Don’t do that!” during this cycle, but it’s important to remember not to stop your life during this time. It’s not the best idea to sign anything of commitment during a Mercury in Retro phase, but that doesn’t mean if you feel really good about it, you shouldn’t take a good opportunity either. Follow your intuition and check in often with your higher-self, and see what answers you get.
Time Table and Dates of Mercury’s Retrograde Cycle this time around:
Mercury’s shadow period begins/enters Rx zone: October 28, 2018, 8:52 PM, at 27° Scorpio 16′
Mercury stations and turns retrograde: November 16, 2018, 8:27 PM, at 13°Sagittarius 30′ Rx

Take things slow and pay attention, ask questions, and be ok with doing things over again if need be, and you will come out of this time much easier. Have a good one. ~Ruby
As we get closer to Halloween a Full Moon will occur in the sign of Taurus on October 24th! This Full Moon is going to a bit of a challenging energy for us because it can make people feel extremely anxious and some folks are going to act quite crazy! This may not be such an easy influence to get through, so it’s important to understand that this Full Moon is full of disruptive and challenging energy, especially in our love lives and for some of you around your finances.
This Full Moon in Taurus can bring unexpected changes in your love life, relationships, and anything your feeling emotional about already! One thing the Moon in Taurus will do is awaken your senses and sensibilities, as this is a very sensitive sign in one of the most sensitive aspects, however, it also is a time of opportunity to understand your existing relationships, especially with Venus (Taurus ruling planet, and the planet of Love and Money) in Retrograde, as we are already thinking strongly about any issues we have concerning love or money.
All of this might sound a bit frightening, but it’s not all bad! The power of this energy can turn unexpected changes into opportunities. There also maybe unexpected love connections made and practical solutions to any issues you’ve already been dealing with in your love life. And this might bring up new issues to also figure out. This Full Moon has a way of magnifying problems that are opposing forces in your world because the Sun is Opposite the Moon during a Full Moon anyway, always. There’s going to be strong feelings of tension and pressure and you can end up feeling ran down or exhausted by it. It is going to be a highly emotional time starting really soon, but it doesn’t have to be negative depending on how you handle it.
The Full Moon is clashing with unpredictable Uranus, the planet of change, rebellion, and revolution, so it’s going to shake up things and upset the status quo, and the Sun will shift into Scorpio a day before. Plus shadowy Venus Retrograde will make a strong connection to the strong Sun. So starting today and the days ahead to the Full Moon you can feel quite rattled and nerve-racked!
If you’re a sensitive person by nature, so an Empath, Psychic, Healer, or just highly intuitive, you need to make sure and get those energetic SHIELDS UP all around you to block out some of this energy.
All the fixed signs of the Zodiac so Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, and Aquariuscan feel confused and foggy. But all of us no matter what Sign you maybe could see an old relationship come back around for up to two weeks after the Full Moon comes together. This may not be such a good thing due the whole Venus is Retrograde energy going on as well, however, there will be some of you who will make it through together.
Dates to Pay Attention To:
October 23rd – It’s Scorpio season! With the Sun entering the Sign of Scorpio the Veils between this physical reality and other realms become very thin for the next 30 days, and we should be honoring our loved ones who crossed over, as Halloween approaches we really should think about where it originated, in the end, it is about the people who lived here and their legacy! But you also might experience some sort of paranormal event during this time, as the ones who crossed over tend to want to say hi!
October 24th – Full Moon in Taurus! Time to “Set Intentions” and Release what is no longer working or serving you, write out what it is you want to let go of in your life, be it feelings, situations, behaviors, thoughts, or people. Make it clear to the Universe what you are ready to release and what you want to bring in to your life or at least attract.
October 26th – Today secrets are revealed, and the truth comes out! Get ready as a big dose of reality, and some clarity might come in about a relationship.
Important Full Moon Info:
Remember the Full Moon comes together October 24th, so plan on Setting Those Intentionsto help you release what’s blocking your financial security, and create a way for more money and abundance to come into your life. Use affirmations and mantras that attract wealth and money! This Full Moon is in the sign of Taurus, the sign that rules over Money and finances, among many other things. It’s one of the luckiest Full Moon of the year and it can help you attract good luck and money.
The Full Moon in October is called the Hunter’s Moon, and every Full Moon is a very powerful energy that you should pay attention to. Because this is a time when the Intentions and Wishes you made during the last New Moon a few weeks ago start to come together. As goals are ready to be made.
Here are the times when the Full Moon peak on October 24th.
CST 11:45 am
PST 9:45 am
EST 12:45 pm
MDT 10:45 am
You really should Set Intentions during the Full Moon to help you release something from your life so you can create space and time for some new energy to come into your life. This Full Moon affects each and every one of us, but certain Zodiac Signs will be affected by the October Full Moon the most, and you should learn about how this energy affects you! They often reveal something to us and bring us clarity. So if you’d like to learn more about how this Full Moon is going to affect you please get with me about a personal Reading. During your reading, I will research your personal Astrology and tell you what areas of your life you should be focusing your energy on.
A Look Ahead To Scorpio Season
The above is a gallery with just two images. It’s an easier way to create visually appealing layouts, without having to deal with floats. You can also easily convert the gallery back to individual images again, by using the block switcher.
Between October 23rd and 30th, there is what’s called a Stellium of planets in Astrology coming together all in the sign of Scorpio, so this is going to be an extremely intense Scorpio Season. Mental Mercury and over the top Jupiter making a challenging connection in Scorpio. The Sun and shady Venus (more in its shadow-self due to its Retrograde cycle.) Whenever there are more than three planets in one sign at the same time, it’s called a Stellium and it creates a vortex of energy that shines a light in whatever part of your personal Astrology Birth Chart it is going through.
Some of you will meet challenges during this time with the same theme, while others will actually thrive due to this energy. All the water signs, so Scorpio, Cancer, and Pisces should enjoy this energy and flow more easily through it. But again to understand this energy more personally and how it affects you, book a Reading Session with me, Ruby, and I will look through your own personal Astrology Birth Chart and tell you just what part of your life this is going to affect, and where the strongest energy will be so you can work with it for your benefit.

The Full Moon on Monday, September 24th is in the sign of Aries. The First Full Moon of the season, also known as the Harvest Moon, it helps to highlight this time of year, it’s celebrated as Mabon, which is a time of equanimity and gratitude.
This Full Moon is asking you to take a look into how you are honoring yourself, and balance your personal relationships. You can have new visions, epiphanies, or revelations about things to do with your physical body, your leadership skills, or your ability to start or begin new things, and about your close relationships.
Full Moons are a time to let go of what isn’t working or serving you anymore. So it’s a great time to release energy! There’s some serious energy that can still help provide insight and courage to overcome what we fight or stand for. This is by far one the best Full Moons to work on letting go of something that you just shouldn’t be holding onto anymore. This means you’ve got some work to do over the next day or so to prepare for Mondays Full Moon. Open your heart and release the pain, and set yourself free!
This Full Moon is making a harsh aspect to the planet of Karma, Saturn and emotionally wounded Chiron, this can cause some of you to feel emotionally drained through Monday evening as the Full Moon builds energy to come together.
The Full Moons tense Square to Karmic Saturn may cause struggles with roadblocks, or obstacles, and harsh “in your face” realities, but luckily we can be super persistent and resilient. This influence opens up emotional wounds that stem from our childhood memories. You might have been carrying around those wounds in your heart for years, so now is an opportunity to recognize them and release these old pains or hurts. The Full Moon in warrior-like Aries offers up some ways to fix old pains & wounds, as it can help you figure out something important. And because under this energy we refuse to be the victim anymore and hold on to those old wounds, we really should fight to fix them and release them for good!
Some of you might already be experiencing some kind of drama in your life, but those of you who were born March 20-24, June 21-26, September 21- 25 and December 21-25, might really feel the intensity of this Full Moon energy meeting up with Chiron and Saturn. And you might have a difficult few days, but you also can gain something quite valuable, and experience some serious healing!
We may feel especially tensed up and firey during this Full Moon, so our thoughts can get negative! Don’t allow this temporary energy to do this to you, what you say and think hold great power during this time. Get proactive and raise your vibration by keeping your energy positive! Try talking positively more often and be grateful!
Time to Manifest your Intentions, this Full Moon occurs at the following times: but you can start making those Wishlists over the weekend and then honestly I would burn them with the Full Moon Monday evening since it’s in fiery Aries:
There’s some good news I want to share with you! The Cosmos is about to shift once again and the lucky planet Jupiter is going to shift into its own sign of Sagittarius in just a few short months! Starting November 8, 2018, Jupiter will shift into the sign of Sagittarius and stay there for a little over a year.
Jupiter has been in the Sign of Scorpio since last November, which has been an eye-opening experience, but once Jupiter makes its shift into more upbeat Sagittarius things will be different, as Jupiter works at its best in Sagittarius, due to it being its ruling planet. This transit of Jupiter can bring abundance, and its effects will be bigger and sometimes better than we have experienced in nearly 12 years! Jupiter is the planet of expansion and it expands everything it touches, it brings good luck, gifts, and often blessings when it’s in a harmonious manner.
Now for the downside of Jupiter moving forward into Sagittarius, this planet expands all that it touches. So all you Scorpio Sun or Rising sign folks might have put some weight on over the last 12 months without even trying as Jupiter has been in your Sign!
But if you are a Sagittarius, you are seriously going to want to watch your diet for the next year or so, as it can be all too easy to pack on the pounds without even trying. You may not even eat differently or change your exercise routines and still put some extra weight on, so forewarned is forearmed. However, most agree the benefits of Jupiter the great benefic planet being in your sign will far outweigh the pitfalls during this time.
This can be quite a Lucky year ahead for all of us, no matter what your sign maybe, Jupiter will touch our lives, in a most prosperous expansive way. This is going to be an amazing way to end the year since it has been so rough for so many of you! This can help improve your finances and many other parts of your life.
If you would like to learn more about how Jupiter will affect you and your future, order a personal Reading with me, and I will explain to you just how Jupiter is going to expand your life over the next 12 months. You may want to know just what areas of your life you can push your luck in, I will be able to guide you in the right direction towards your dreams.
A Look Ahead!
This week has been easy for some and challenging for others. Stay in your own lane folks! Don’t get sucked into the drama that other folks might try to drag you into. It’s best to understand just why you feel tense.
The Tensions Continue!
There’s a rather testy Mars/Uranus T-Square building up energy now that peaks on September 18th, and in Astrology and life, in general, it is the build-up of energies that cause the most problems. You might be noticing this energy is at play now, and it can cause unexpected events, like accidents, anger and outbursts, and other tensions you didn’t even think about. Whatever issues you might have been dealing with about 4 months ago is now coming to completion and you might have some real challenges in your life, sit back and watch, and breathe, be the observer, not the reactor!
This weekend you might have to work harder to achieve balance. If you are generally an easy going person you might have a difficult time playing it cool, and you might end up feeling like telling someone to “stick it where the Sun doesn’t shine! Ha! It’s a time to get space, it actually can be more important with all these tense energies at play, you may not want anyone in your little private bubble, so stay away from others if need be.
If you are having some sort of relationship issues or money problems, no worries. It’s probably due to Venus now in her “Shadow” Phase of Retrograde, (basically the few weeks prior to her actual Retrograde cycle that begins Oct 5.) Venus rules over our love life, relationships, and money, and while she is doing the backstroke in Retrograde issues around these parts of our lives might start to show up to be dealt with. The Venus Retrograde period is sort of her shadow self, and therefore, you might experience the darker side of Venus and those issues during the Retrograde period, so we may have to discover some secrets to get through but in the end it’s all about the healing folks!
The other issue, however, is Venus has been part of the ongoing T-Square energy that is still building up to peak on the 18th, and that isn’t helping matters much. This tense energy will calm back down a few days after it peaks on the 18th, but it is going to come together again and peak strongly on Halloween, Oct 31 & Nov 30! This strong influence brings out tensions in our relationships and around our finances. Venus goes toe to toe with Uranus the planet of change and liberation, so you can only imagine how this is energy is affecting our love lives and money situations, as it plays in the background of our lives all the way through the end of November. This aspect can cause unexpected changes in relationships, finances, and with your material possessions. So hopefully as this energy peaks new information helps you to see the bigger picture.
“Through our eyes, the universe is perceiving itself. Through our ears, the universe is listening to its harmonies. We are the witnesses through which the universe becomes conscious of its glory, of its magnificence.”
― Alan Wilson Watts
This weekend communicative Mercury makes a nice Trine connection to powerful Pluto and then sweetly hooks up to lucky Jupiter! This is a rather lovely time and great for powerful thinking and manifesting folks!
So do something to Set some Intentions over the weekend, maybe write a letter to the Universe about what you wish for or dream of the most! And leave it under your pillow through Sunday night so you can sort of absorb this amazing energy, and see what happens. Some folks will be pleasantly surprised.
“Saturday is also a good time to dig deep and have discussions that are heavy or intense.”
Sunday is a wonderful day for communication, so things like writing, talking, sending emails, or whatever “floats your boat” can go extremely well. It’s a day to collect information and gain maybe some new knowledge
Sept 24th a strong Full Moon comes together, this will shed some light on what actions you need to take next on your life. It’s such a powerful Full Moon that you can attract new resources that bring in money and it’s a great time for fresh new starts.
Signs Are Coming!
The Universe has some serious messages to pass around! On September 20th, the Sun makes what’s called a conjunction to mentally powerful Mercury!
This connection is about Ah-Ha moments and Epiphanies, so you would be wise to pay attention and watch for signs and symbols from the Universe about what you are supposed to be doing with your life starting this weekend! There are messages all over the place! Stay aware and look for even the most subtle signs and clues, and make sure and mark your calendars for this day folks, get out that Android or Apple Calendar because you don’t want to miss this!

We are now in the final quarter of the year folks, so September through December of 2018 is finally a good time to start untangling the mess that all the Retrograde Planets might have caused, so it just makes sense to work on the areas of your life that you feel somewhat unsure, confused, stuck, or just blocked in. Now that passionate Mars has moved forward and out of its Retrograde cycle, and hard-nosed Saturn has moved direct and out of its Retrograde cycle on September 6th, our lives are slowly starting to move again, which means we can hopefully join in with this energy and move forward as well. Clarity will be gained from our work and careers, which is good news for lots of folks who have had major issues with their jobs during the Retrogrades.
Venus has just started its “Shadow” phase before it goes into its Retrograde cycle soon in October. This brings some more insight into our love lives, and this can help us learn what changes must be made in our relationships and also around our finances. And with Venus now in the sign of Scorpio, we get to learn deeply what we are doing in our relationships both wrong and right. If you are one who is holding onto a secret of some kind in your relationship or doing something sneaky that affects it, be extra careful under this influence, skeletons in the closet seem to fall right out into the open and come up to process and figure out!
Saturn just started moving forward again, but it’s slow-moving and then yet Venus, another planet is also changing direction and headed backward in Retrograde at the same time. So soon we might start to feel like things are headed in the right direction, but there are probably a lot of unanswered questions after such a slow-moving summer full of block and delays. It’s finally time for a change.
Besides the Retrogrades, there is another important Astrological connection that’s already begun that you should know about. This is hitting some of you quite hard right now. It’s called a T-Square and these connections are not so easy to navigate as the energies are pulled into more harsh directions. This month’s T-Square involves Venus (love & money), Mars (anger & motivation), and Uranus (divine messages, changes, inventions, rebellion, & liberation.) These connections are already causing sudden and unexpected surprises and turn of events, as they all battle it out through the end of September. Therefore, you may feel under attack in some way, as there could be some surprises in both business and personal relationships to contend with.
The energies from September 10th through the 15th will peak, and you will more than likely feel the intensity of the T-Square in one way or another, off and on throughout September. This can cause certain effects like unpredictable events and lots of big shifts and changes, also whether issues which have already begun this week and possible shocks and surprises both positive and negative. There also can be frustrations that lead to unexpected outbursts of anger, so aggressive behavior, arguments, and fussiness can be an issue.
Unexpected changes in our relationships, especially with Venus shifting into its Retrograde cycle soon, which can affect us both personally and professionally. There can be quite interesting attractions to people and different kinds of relationships formed, and you might just feel bit by the “love bug” during September time, as there will be some love at first sight stories to tell. And changes or sudden unexpected events around money, for some of you this influence, can have an extremely positive effect financially speaking.
Here’s a brief breakdown of the T-Square Formation for all you Astrology buffs:
Venus is in the sign of Libra and is making a tense Square to Saturn in Capricorn
Venus will shift into the sign of Scorpio on the 10th, but also will oppose Uranus in Taurus.
Mars shifts out of Capricorn and into the sign of Aquarius and is Squaring Venus and Uranus both.
Let me also mention that the second and even some of the third week of September might be highly beneficial for some folks, especially those born under the signs of Cancer, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Aquarius. Blessings are coming in as well, and some of you might just experience some sort of miracle, so hold on tight and ride this wave of good fortune. You may also find that the unexpected events I am talking about are also blessings in disguise. Now not everyone born under these signs will experience good luck, but some of you just might receive some sort of good news, so just wanted to put that out there.
If you find yourself on the other end of these influences and feel frustrated or upset, here’s a little bit of helpful advice to get you through the tough times. First off don’t forget to breathe, it really can help you get calm and find a better space to be in, it has been scientifically proven over and over that breath is the key to calming the body and mind down. It’s important to not have any expectations about how things should go or how they are going to be one way or another, with Uranus involved we really should “expect the unexpected,” which so far has proven to be very accurate for the early days of September.
If someone starts to show signs of frustration, agitation or just gets angry with you, then it’s time to get away from them and give them their personal space. Under this intense energy, it’s not worth getting into arguments or it can go way overboard! Don’t allow someone to suck you into his or her drama! Do not pick fights with others or be antagonize others or you may have to deal with some raw anger and who knows where that may lead.
