Time of Astrological Retrogrades & Eclipses
By Ruby

Many of you have expressed to me how you want to move forward in one way or another, in some part of your life, and yet you feel stuck! And you’re probably very curious when you’ll get to start moving forward again. Well here’s what’s happening.

It is a time of Retrograde Planets!
It’s not that you are necessarily doing anything wrong, in fact, you probably have been doing everything you can think of, but perhaps that’s not even working! This is a time to wait, and do your work spiritually! During Retrograde time like now, we go more inward and start to process on a very deep level all of the issues in our life we want to change or even some of the stuff we don’t, we just can’t make things work in the same way! This is NOT YOUR FAULT! It is not about what you are doing.

This summer at one point there will be six planets in their Retro cycles, except for the Sun and Moon, and not only are they in Retrograde but also they are hanging out together. The Retrograde planets cause blocks and major slowdowns in more than one area of your life. However, this doesn’t mean everything in your life will be stuck or on hold. But just like everyone else, there will be some things that get stopped. Most of you aren’t too happy about this Astrological lineup, so it’s important to understand just what part of your own personal Astrology Birth Chart these Retrogrades are moving through because that tells us what part of your life is being most affected. Even though you already probably could guess some of it just by what you are experiencing.

SO GIVE YOURSELF A BREAK and avoid taking actions because this is seriously a waiting game we are in!

Retrograde Planets Timeline

  • Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, and Pluto will all be Retrograde between June 26 and July 10th.
  • Jupiter turns direct and out of Retrograde on July 10th, leaving four planets retrograde.
  • July 25, Mercury is Retrograde and there are 5 planets going in reverse.
  • August 7, Uranus turns Retrograde and that makes six planets plus Chiron Retrograde.
  • The planets slowly start turning direct with Mercury, on August 18th.

The Summer is a good time to sit back and reflect on your life, so take it slow and hopefully, you will see that things just aren’t moving as quickly so you can take your time. Let things unfold naturally during this slowed down time, and don’t push things. There’s no point in pushing something if it’s not going to happen from the start or if it is going to be a mess, and that is exactly what Retrograde planets can bring. Perspective is everything folks, take this time and enjoy it, look at it as a time to relax or take a little vacay time, this will help you take some of the pressure off yourself and your life. Try not to worry! Zen out and just allow the energies to be what they are now. You can’t change anything about it, take it from me observing Retrograde time over the last 20 something years, and seeing so many folks try to push it and do things that aren’t really working for them, or trying something totally different and have nothing but problems that lasted months after the Retrograde cycles were over. It’s not worth the frustration!

  • Astro Outlook for July
    July 8th – Sun Trines Neptune, this will be a nice energy that will stick around for some of the week, so enjoy! We can feel a bit lazy but our intuition is super strong and our dreams can be vivid and meaningful.
  • July 9th – Mercury Square Jupiter, watch your mouth again, Mercury rules over how we communicate and if you get frustrated once this energy appears you could seriously go off.
  • July 11th, Venus Trine Uranus, this can be a nice energy to meet someone new in or just out of the blue, and for couples that are already together, you just might be able to put some spark back into your relationships.
  • July 12th, Sun Opposite Pluto, this can be a good day but don’t let your ego or mind get in your way. You might feel amazingly powerful, but you can end up throwing your weight around and have major ego battles with others.
  • July 14th, Venus Trine Saturn, this is when we can make sure our committed relationships are secure, and when longer term commitments can be made.

A New Moon comes together on Thursday, July 12 in the sign of Cancer, this is actually the first of the Summer Eclipses!
This New Moons message is all about letting go of something, as it’s a time to transform yourself and get rid of what is holding you back from happiness.

This Solar Eclipse is going to be very powerful, it represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of a new one. A regular New Moon’s influence can last for a month after it comes together, but a Solar Eclipse influence can last from three to six months. However, the Cosmos is busy and there are two Solar Eclipses this summer. The next one is on August 11, and it will be even stronger or more powerful than this one.

The New Moon Eclipses are an ideal time to plant those seeds of intentions for any future goals you desire, it is time to manifest folks! Wherever, this Eclipse falls in your own personal “Astrology Birth Chart,” will be the area of your life that you will have the best opportunity for something new or improved to start, by the end of the year or even into next year.

The Eclipse on July 12 might just push you to do more with your life. Therefore, it can create chaos or crisis if you get caught off guard. But hopefully, you are learning now just by reading this blog, and you will gain enough insight and avoid a crisis altogether. So I do hope you take this information and do something amazing with your life, by working with the energies of the Eclipses. Please share this blog with friends so they can understand how it all works and use this info too.

If you aren’t too sure where the Eclipse falls in your personal “Astrology Birth Chart” and just how it will impact you, then you can order a Regular Reading, and I will give you that info during our session, or a “One Question Reading” and I will send you a Mini-Report (just about this Eclipse information) that’s generated just for you based off your chart information. For more info and prices please message me here on Facebook or email me at healingruby@gmail.com

It’s a great time to Manifest Relationships!
Many of you are looking for new love in some way and some folks may even meet a soulmate during this time. Already existing relationships might just enjoy more stability. If you are in a stressful relationship than this is a good time to work through your problems and find solutions. But if for whatever reason your relationship isn’t already solid and doesn’t have staying power, these Eclipses may just separate you too help you figure it all out.

For those of you who are impatient when it comes to manifesting, please keep “Setting Those Intentions” and making out those “Wish Lists.” The things you want in this life don’t always come immediately, sometimes it just takes time! The Universe doesn’t always just give us what we want, but the whole point of “Setting Intentions” is to be put on a path in the right direction towards your desires. So if you are consistent and continue to keep asking and focusing on what it is you want and not what you don’t, you will either get put on the right path or get what you want in time. So do your work folks, or it won’t work! Period.

There is no magic cure to stop these energies but you can do work to help ease off the tension, no matter your beliefs, take some time to go inward and connect to your higher-self or a higher power and ask for what it is you want, and for help during this wild crazy time. If you need help through this or a guide to ease your tension than I am here to help, get with me about a Reading session and we will come up with a plan.

Good Luck!

Mercury Retrograde – April 2017

Mercury Retrograde

April 9th – May 3rd
Sometimes the Universe gives us a break even though it doesn’t always feel that way. One thing the cosmos always does is create balance. So the energies get slowed down a bit so we can have the opportunity to catch up. Mercury in Retrograde is that time out, it’s the chance to get caught up with life, it’s time to get unplugged, and take a long deep breath. It’s a good time to take time off from work if at all possible and focus on reworking anything that needs it. Mercury rules the lower mind and energies, so when it’s in a Retrograde cycle we start to perceive things in a very different way.
Mercury in Retrograde, like all Retrograde plants, is happening for a reason, this isn’t some new astrological fad. Planets have always gone into Retrograde and will continue to. So every once in a while we get a chance to pause or stop and get some rest. This is the time to review your life and the paths you’re on. What this Mercury in Retrogrades cycle does is help us to breathe, be still, relax, and review. The main thing to know as this energy is coming in, it’s time to review your life and redo anything that needs to be done. It is time to re-search, re-think, re-visit, re-connect, and to get re-organized.
What Not To Do during
Mercury in Retrograde:
– Don’t start brand new projects
– Do not get into arguments, avoid critical folks and tense people or situations.
– Do Not Sign Contracts or New Agreements
– Avoid Travel
– Do Not take misunderstandings personal. Our communication is foggy and clouded.
What To do during
Mercury in Retrograde:
– Redo, Rework, Review, Research, so basically go over things again and wrap up old business and projects.
– Double Check the Facts and all the info you come by.
– Revisit what you need to, like your work.
– Reconnect with the folks that matter if you’ve had issues or not.
– Backup Computers and any data you want to keep saved, usually start this process two weeks prior to the actual Retro Cycle.
– Reorganize your daily life routines.
– Declutter.
– Reflect and practice spiritual work.
– Release what’s been holding you back or blocking you, let go of what no longer is working especially in your intimate relationships.
There can be positive things that come from a Mercury in Retrograde cycle that you just didn’t think about before. Like throwing out the old and organizing our lives. Focus on more past opportunities and reconsider them and see if they are still an option, and try to let go of any computer glitches or electronic snafus you might be experiencing.
Mercury is currently in Taurus and this is strong energy.
So our focus should be on re-organizing and reflecting. We see the world a little differently during this time, through these filters, we can have some very important inner revelations. It may not be as easy to communicate under this influence, but remember not to try and rationalize everything. Mercury Rx periods can be times of heightened inner awareness, so doing things like meditation, keeping a journal, reworking old plans, and reviewing, or around anything from your past can be quite helpful. Mercury Rx is also a powerful time to study, particularly for returning to old studies and re-learning or refreshing knowledge around a subject that’s already been taken.
With Mercury in Taurus during this particularly Retrograde cycle, past decisions and ideas from a new more possible enlightened perspective can be very useful. Even though we may be especially stubborn or impatient. Lots of folks will end up returning to old projects and end up redoing, refining and tweaking them. You may feel stuck in the past in some way while Mercury is Retrograde in Taurus, but you can find old or past ideas to be more useful now, so use them in new ways if you can make yourself move forward. This is a great time to review recent financial matters and discover mistakes or oversights. (And it is tax season.) Plans may be reconsidered in ways that can benefit you.
Retrograde Mercury is aligning with the Sun on April 20th just as the Sun enters Taurus, which lights up our thoughts! This inferior conjunction presents actually a good time for processing recent events and ideas, and for beginning to look at problems or issues from a new perspective and with some new information and a new understanding. What we say, do, write or project out to the world now can have a great impact, and this can be a positive or negative experience. There will be significant new ideas that can be learned during this time, although we are unlikely to seem them completely clear quite yet.
This Mercury in Retrograde cycle can also help you think back to a part of your recent past and help you reconnect to an old dream or goal, to follow through on. Someone from your past might get a hold of you for a second chance or opportunity, but that doesn’t mean it’s meant to be, usually, it doesn’t work out for the long-run. Because we are perceiving things in a different way as the truth tends to come out, and you just might notice or find some kind of detail you overlooked or didn’t catch before. This cycle can bring clarity and help you move the restrictions or blocks that are in your way to achieve happiness. Mercury begins retracing its steps in direct motion from May 3rd (its shadow ends on May 20th).
