⭐The New Moon occurs in the sign of Aquarius on February 11th, and finally, some better feeling energies show up right along with it!
⭐Venus, the Goddess of Love, conjuncts lucky Jupiter this week. It is always a great time to make out those Wishlists and Set Intentions with the Cosmos during the New Moon. But this time around, the wishes you make can be especially special! Dream big and make some strong heartfelt wishes during this New Moon cycle, starting February 10th through the 13th.
Opportunities for something amazing can happen, and you can experience major breakthroughs. Any goals set now will probably happen, eventually! Current and new relationships can feel especially passionate and intense. This influence is right on time for Cupid to shoot those arrows on Valentine’s Day!
Unfortunately, the weather is not as fun this week, as the U.S. will be dealing with an “Arctic Blast” and downright frigid temperatures. Aquarius is a sign of the Winter Season. Aquarius is considered the most emotionally detached sign in the Zodiac, simply because it teaches “All Of Us” that we must keep our emotions in check and take care of business and our responsibilities!
There are five planets and some asteroids in the sign of Aquarius now. No wonder this Winter Season was forecast to be so cold. 2022 is forecast to be even colder, by the way. Brr!!
⭐A Time to Pay Attention There’s a electricity in the air with the challenging Uranus Square Saturn connection. There can be frustrations, but also random A-ha moments, strong psychic visions, and epiphanies. Uranus will be Squaring all the planets in Aquarius throughout February, so it’s going to be a wild ride, folks! Traveling can be full of difficulty and challenges from the 8th-11th, and the weather won’t help. And Mercury Retrograde causing travel delays throughout February.
⭐A Look Ahead February 17th is going to come in strong and bring some erratic energy, folks. As the Square between Saturn and Uranus peaks! This is the first of three meetings between these planets. This influence will play out in the backdrop of our lives for the entire year; it just won’t be as intense until its peak times again in June and November. There will be varying intensity levels depending on what part of your own Astrology Birth Chart it lands in. Therefore, some people will be affected more than others. Regardless, we all can feel some sort of tension in two areas of our lives, when thus influence peaks again in June and December of 2021.
Saturn teaches all of us about honoring the past, tradition and sticking to what has always worked. While Uranus likes to stir things up to create change, it’s more about breaking down the boundaries that got put in place by Saturn! This rather tense connection wants us to push past old patterns, habits, and behaviors that need to be changed. We want our independence and freedom but must learn to stick to something traditional. So its influence can affect many different parts of our lives, from our careers, health, relationships, home, and family life.
Some of these changes can be rather good, but this energy also tends to shake things up, as it takes us out of our comfort zone! We can feel resistance to making changes, as this influence puts pressure on us, but these energies will keep coming around until we make some necessary changes.
There might be something that needs to end, as challenges are presented to make changes. But we may refuse to deal with the inevitable. This influence insists that you go through it and start something new, adjust and rebuild. Being prepared is important, so we are not caught off guard by whatever events come our way.
Astro News ⚡ February 6th – 8th – Venus conjuncts Saturn and squares Uranus The next few days may be challenging in love and relationships, and even money. The fixed signs Leo, Aquarius, Scorpio, and Taurus, can feel this energy quite strongly. But this can affect every one of us. It’s important to be precise and clear about any long-term goals or plans you’re making concerning your finances. Do Not lend or borrow any money unless it’s considered to be a gift!
⭐February 8th – Sun conjuncts Mercury in Aquarius It’s an awful time to sign contracts or make any long-standing commitments. Don’t believe everything you see and hear. This energy is even more pronounced with Mercury in Retrograde underway!
⭐February 10th -12th – Venus conjunct Jupiter Beautiful Energy! Lucky times ahead! Please get up and do something proactive during this cycle to increase your chances for success. Opportunities are coming in our love lives and financial situations. The government stimulus checks will probably go out around this time, fattening everyone’s wallets.
Lots of folks will be getting job offers during this cycle. Some of you will meet a Soul Mate! But navigating this influence can be tricky, especially during Mercury in Retrograde, so wait to start new jobs until after the 19th if possible, but at least take the job for now. Plan a first date for the 20th or so to keep things running more smoothly.
⭐February 11th – New Moon in Aquarius 🌚 Six planets are already in the sign of Aquarius (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn along with the asteroid, Pallas Athena. This energy activates our manifesting abilities to a much higher frequency! So the energy is much more efficient than usual. Make sure and set those Wish Lists and Intentions higher than you normally do. The sky is the limit! Ask for exactly what you want to happen in your life for the short and long-term. This New Moon is all about making wishes and dreams come true. Just remember, not everything happens right away for a reason, and sometimes we don’t get what we want because the Cosmos puts us exactly where we need to be to receive something even better.
⭐February 13th-14th – Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter harmonize. The Valentine’s Day energy is strong this year. Even if you’re not into celebrating love, remember to honor Universal Love for everyone on this day. Cupid’s energy will be strong, sending out some good feeling vibes courtesy of the Universe. But remember, the Saturn/Uranus Square will also be in play, so it won’t all be sunshine and rainbows, but there are still going to be some memorable moments to enjoy!

Mercury, the messenger planet, moves into Aquarius on January 8th.
Mercury rules over the mind and helps us tap into higher dimensions, so things should get rather interesting with Mercury in progressive Aquarius through March 15th.
Heads-Up Mercury will enter its Retrograde cycle, starting January 30th, and runs through February 20th. We have already entered the Pre-shadow phase! When the planet Mercury starts to slow down to get ready to appear moving backward or turn Retrograde through the Cosmos. So the energies are going to be quite strange. I will have more on this later.
Mercury rules our thoughts, perceptions, and communications, and in the sign of Aquarius, we are inventive, innovative, progressive, objective, intuitive, detached, rational, and outspoken. Our opinions are strong and our independence very important. Our minds are downloading amazing inspirational visions, and we can have random A-ha moments and epiphanies. So our awareness is expanded, and our ideas are brilliant, ingenious, and at times revolutionary.
It’s a strong time for free-thinking as we are minds open, so we will see scientific breakthroughs during this cycle. This influence allows us to channel information from higher dimensions and energies, so take advantage of it through spiritual activities such as meditation and journal-writing.
Over the next nine weeks, we feel pulled to explore our ideas, beliefs, strategies, so we can uplift each other and innovate. As Mercury transits the sign of Aquarius, events and experiences start to represent the Mercury traits in Aquarius more so as we think more outside the box.
Between January 8 – 13, Mercury forms a tense Square to warrior Mars in Taurus and is conjunct Saturn and Jupiter in Aquarius as well. Mercury is also squaring off with the Great Awakener Uranus in Taurus! This event is being called the 3 Planet Conjunction on social media sites.
These powerful Cosmic energies create revelations that potentially have a strong impact and are definitely meaningful. This is a taste of what’s coming in January/February as other aspects continue to tap into these Cosmic connections. These influences create tensions and frictions between balancing our personal desires and values with what the world needs from us. We must think about the whole picture under these energies.
As Mercury amps up all the newly formed Aquarian energies, Venus also shifts into the sign of Capricorn. This energy re-activates the tensions from last year’s dynamic energies. It’s important to try to be more responsible by creating abundance and happiness even during these difficult times. We can make this happen by acknowledging our feelings about our difficulties and seeing our blessings, even the little ones.
The key to success and navigating through January and February of 2021 is to let go of the old ways while still valuing tradition and embracing the new ways!
Rubys Astro Readings Full Moon – New Year 2021 December 29th
For All Zodiac Signs
A Full Moon in the sign of Cancer peaks on Tuesday and can have us feeling all the feels! So if you’ve been feeling weepy and sad or just more emotional, you know why.
This particular Full Moon brings up issues in our relationships (of all kinds), especially in loving or intimate ones. It also puts out a powerful, strong emotional energy while it transits sensitive Cancer. So we might feel overly sensitive and can take things way too personal. People tend to feel more easily rejected or passed over when, in reality, we may just need some space. We can get clingy and hold on to those we care about too tight, but smothering someone won’t make them love you anymore; in fact, it will do just the opposite and make them go away!
With the Full Moon’s light illuminating our lives, issues are often exposed. This influence pushes us to deal with certain things in our personal lives that we might choose to ignore or neglect. With so much attention being put on our health, relationships, careers, and personal plans these days, this Full Moon encourages us to think about our personal emotional needs as well.
Full Moons are always about creating a balance between the Moon and Sun’s opposition. With the Moon in Cancer and the Sun in Capricorn, we need to focus on what these signs represent. The Full Moon in Cancer wants us to create a balance in our private life, and to learn there is a need for a home base, and to nurture ourselves. The Sun in Capricorn wants us to pay attention to our public life, career, reputation and take accountability. Being attached and in love are ruled by Cancer, while Capricorn rules our rewards and punishments. In some ways, this energy deals with the balance between unconditional love and conditional love. The Cancer Moon teaches us to value our home base and our roots, while Capricorn shows us how to consider our sense of duty and responsibility and pay more attention to our public lives.
This Wolf Moon harmonizes with the planet Uranus. So it is a gentle eye-opening energy; however, Venus and Neptune also square off on Wednesday, casting a fog and if confusion in our romantic or intimate relationships. You may feel strongly about making a soulmate-like connection with someone, but they may not be as receptive, or you can put them on a pedestal only to learn later they are not all you thought or expected them to be. Ensure you love others for who they are rather than hoping and wishing they will be what you want. Everyone grows and levels up at their own rate, our evolution is a personal journey, and no one should be forced to live by someone else’s expectations.
Don’t forget this is the perfect setup for Setting Intentions along with ringing in a New Year! So make sure to make out those Wishlists and focus on writing about what you don’t want in your life anymore, this can be about anything or anyone, it can be a thing or a behavior! It’s time to release what you need rid of and then make out your Wishes for the upcoming New Year! Powerful energies are at play!
Have a safe and blessed Full Moon, and a amazingly wonderful, prosperous, and healthy New Year! Sending Love & Light to you all. ~Ruby
The Sun shifted into the sign of transformation, and mystery, Scorpio. “Scorpio Season” begins Oct 22, 2020, and runs through Nov 21, 2020.
The mysterious Scorpio energy is known for being darker and often misunderstood. Symbolically, Scorpio energy drives us to explore the depths of the soul. As the Sun’s light exposes the truth, and all that has been hidden, repressed, secret, or ignored tends to come out. So if you’ve got any skeletons in your closet, clean it up now, or you might just get found out.
The Sun in Scorpio is a time of emotional depth, intimacy, and transformation. Therefore, whatever is fake or false is usually brought out and exposed for what it is, including conversations and betrayals. Superficial anything doesn’t work during this time, because we want the real deal. We need to know that people are genuine and authentic.
Scorpio is the detective of the Zodiac, so the Sun’s influence in Scorpio can have you feeling more suspicious and even a bit paranoid. We are more interested in getting to the bottom of things, as we want to uncover what’s hidden, suppressed, or unknown! It’s a time when we see the unseen with our uncanny Psychic abilities. So we can pick up on the energies around us very quickly. Even if we don’t trust our intuition, the signs are more evident than usual during this time. We enjoy things and people that are odd, taboo, or different in this energy, so anything plain or average is boring.
During Libra season over the last month, we worked towards being fair and equal. During Scorpio season, we accept the fact that life isn’t fair and understand that pain and suffering are part of the process of being human, and to truly evolve we must transform ourselves, which means we must end something to begin something anew.
Scorpio energy can have us feeling sexy, mysterious, and provocative. But we tend to be more secretive, as we feel more passionate, strong-willed, and often intense. This can be a time of transformation and healing.
The shadow side of Scorpio energy can have us feeling more jealous, paranoid, obsessive, and manipulative. We can become obsessed over an issue or problem, and try to figure it out repeatedly, and get nowhere as we continue to dig deeper to learn or understand someone or something. So we may not know when enough is enough or when to quit!
Mental Mercury is also in the sign of Scorpio through Oct 27, due to Mercury’s Retrograde (backward) cycle. It travels back through the sign of Libra on Oct 27 through Nov 9, and then goes back into Scorpio from Nov 10 – 30. So we will have a lot more Scorpio energy to contend with!
This Scorpio energy is about rising from the ashes after something ends. We have fallen in some way or have had to give up, like the tales of the Phoenix! It’s a time of rebirth and resurrection, as we rise to specific challenges and above what has fallen around us! Scorpio Season affects all Zodiac Signs, as this energy is something we can learn from. It’s about regeneration and claiming our lives back, as we start to rebuild after the wild and crazy year we’ve had. It’s the best energy to renew ourselves under, because Scorpio energy teaches us how to do what needs to be done, as it gives us extreme focus and stamina. We can be more driven and motivated to take care of business.
By the time we get to the end of November, and the end of Scorpio Season, hopefully, we will have some plans in place, since most of 2020 will be spent taking life day by day, and just surviving which is so exhausting. May this Scorpio Season illuminated by the Sun’s energy show you the way, and help you get through.
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.
Hiya folks, I am just checking in on everyone! I hope you are being safe and are well during this very difficult time. I’m sending out Love & Light to all of you.
The planetary connections can help give us a source of comfort. Astrology helps us understand how the Cosmic influences are affecting us for the short and long term. This knowledge gives me peace of mind in the most difficult times, and my hope is through my April Astrology Forecast and Astro Blogs that they will help you feel the same way.
April will certainly continue to get a whole lot of attention this year as the Virus Peaks out in the US. It’s important to be together, even from a distance. With the COVID-19 Pandemic creating so much fear and devastation, our social interactions came to a screeching halt in March, so we are paying attention more than ever to what the Universe has in store for us next!
Over the next month or two, we will have to continue self-isolating, which means we are dealing with all of these Astrological energies alone in some way. If you play a big or small role in dealing with this Worldwide crisis, the bottom line is we are making history if we like it or not! We must help each other through it, and be brave. Don’t place too much energy into fear, but more so focus on your faith and or whatever source you believe in. This time to shall pass, and we all individually and collectively share our part in this story, which makes it even that much more important to be kind and respectful with one another.
This is an important time to see just how blessed we truly are, so we can make deeper connections to our loved ones. Please continue to practice some sort of healing, through sending out positive energies through meditation or prayer, or however, you want. Remember in ENERGY we are stronger together! This Virus does not care how old we are or what part of the world we are from. So sending out loving healing energies and good thoughts to everyone is so important at this time. Perhaps more so than ever!
Please continue to practice safe Social Distancing and Isolation, and continue to connect to your loved ones via social media of all kinds.
Many blessings to all. Be Safe & Well. ~Ruby
For All Zodiac Signs
April Astrology Forecast
April 3: Venus enters Gemini
The planet that rules over our relationships travels through this sign of information. This helps us meet interesting people and can bring fresh new energy and ideas into our relationships. Since we are already in self-isolation this is a good time to look up a class online and learn something new. Maybe take a class on something you have never done before, and acquire a new skill. Venus will actually be in the sign of Gemini for quite a while, until August 7th due to its upcoming Retrograde cycle that starts on May 13. It’s time to get rid of old ideas and routines and perhaps try something different. This is a time to change things up every so often in your relationships and around your finances.
April 3: Mercury conjuncts Neptune
Mercury rules over our thinking, communicating, and perception. Neptune’s influence symbolizes our imagination, spirituality, and deceptions. At its best, this is a strong imaginative duo that can help inspire us. The shadow side, can make us vulnerable and gullible and we can believe things that are simply too good to be true or that isn’t even real. It’s important to not believe what people tell you during this time and look into things first to make sure it’s the real deal.
April 4: Venus trines Saturn
This aspect can help stabilize our relationships. It brings in some safety and support from those that hold positions of power or authority. Take this time to socialize, and you might just find ways to advance both your personal and business relationships. This produces lots of good feeling vibes, so we can be better received by others. As things seem to go our way for the next few days.
April 4: Jupiter conjuncts Pluto
Jupiter the planet of luck and expansion conjuncts Pluto, the planet of evolution and transformation every 13 years. This is an extremely powerful energy and we can feel it strongly! We need to think about what we want to do with our lives, and what we want to accomplish. This big energy can have us feeling so incredibly powerful that it can help us get on the path towards something amazing!
April 7: Mars Squares Uranus
There will certainly be some big changes made suddenly or unexpectedly under this influence. So be ready or you can be caught by surprise. As the action planet, Mars gets some big messages from rebellious Uranus. You may feel like standing up for yourself or breaking free from people or circumstances. If you can go with the flow you can do well. Don’t let whatever is happening in the world throw you off balance, (I know easier said than done.) Use this fresh energy and any new ideas you have to form new plans. During this time get creative and innovative, andmost importantly be true to yourself.
April 7: Full Moon in Libra
The Full Moon this month is inrelationship ruled Libra, which means the Sun is in the opposite sign, self-serving Aries. As usual during a Full Moon, ouremotions are ramped up, and there’s a dynamic between self and others during this time. Pluto, currently in Capricorn forms a strong connection called a T-square to the Full Moon. This energy can make us feel intense and pressured, as this is a time when we need to let something go. This can be a person, situation, relationship, or just an old worn-out attitude.
April 11: Mercury enters Aries
The planet of communication Mercury enters bold, and inspiring Aries. This brings new insights and ideas that can help us make our plans or projects more interesting, which can lead us into new directions. This is a good time to connect with people, those who are of like mind that makes you feel more excited about life. This energy can encourage us to break free from unhealthy past habits, to embrace the future.
But we must keep in mind that Aries is known as the God of War. So do your best not to argue, or you could end up wasting your time and energy, and all of thosegreat ideas will never have a fighting chance to get off the ground. Instead, direct your energy towards meeting goals and reaching achievements. We’ve got through April 27th to take advantage of this influence and make something happen.
April 14: Sun squares Pluto
Forewarned is forearmed as they say! When the Sun in Aries squares off with Pluto in Capricorn in this day, some of you will have to deal with a person who wants to through their Power around, and they can be quite dominating. There seem to have their very own agenda or situation, so they may ask you to make some sort of change or adjustment to your plans just to serve their needs. Just be flexible when possible. It’s important to think about others and their needs and to listen more carefully than usual. But you still may be challenged by this influence, so make sure you are also empowering yourself along the way. Don’t be too stingy, but also don’t give everything away. If you take some time to think you’ll know what needs your attention the most.
April 19: Sun enters Taurus
With so many changes going on in the world right now this energy might be a welcome slow down. This is Taurus season, when the Sun enters the more stable sign of Taurus. This sign keeps the energies more practical and grounded, but it’s also very slow-moving, as it’s a lesson for all of us is to enjoy life and to stop and smell the roses. This influence can make us feel antsy even more so about self-isolating and being quarantined. So we need to make sure to continue social distancing. This energy can be quite helpful during a time when people are anxious and impulsive feeling, but they can overreact especially in complicated situations. It’s a good time to pay more attention to finances and our material security. This transit gives us the energy, and stamina to be more determined to succeed. Use these next four weeks to take care of your basic needs. Then you’ll have a more solid foundation to build upon, once it’s over.
April 21: Sun squares Saturn
Four times a year these two square off together, and this opens a door to some valuable opportunities that can help us rid ourselves of what is no longer needed in our lives, especially in our activities. This gives us a bird’s eye view of any plans or ideas we have that are impractical. We can see more clearly who is helpful in our world and who isn’t! This is a time to make smart, informed decisions that can help you hopefully in the long run.
April 22: New Moon in Taurus
This New Moon is in the sign of a more grounded and practical Taurus. This helps us slow down and take some time to get refocused. Our material things and what we value seems more important. Many of you will have already received your”Stimulus” money from the government around this time, so this energy can be quite helpful when it comes to sorting our finances. Take some time to plan your finances and think about how you want to make, spend, and save your money. This will be the right mix of energies to get ahead and maybe start something fresh when it comes to your finances. Also get organized and go through your things and sort out what you no longer use or need, perhaps recycle or donate stuff.
April 25: Mercury squares Pluto
The planet of communication in hot-headed Aries makes a tense square to Pluto in a Capricorn. This stirs up tensions, so it’s extremely important to recognize who or what is bugging you. Someone might be getting on your last nerve. People usually don’t get along so well under this energy. Even though you may be full of bright ideas, and you probably already know exactly what it is you want to do, you may have to deal with those who test or challenge you. Don’t allow this energy to take you off your path. Keep fighting to get what you want!
April 25: Pluto goes Retrograde
How do you use your own personal power? Some folks embrace it and want more. While it makes other people more nervous when they have it! And some people refuse to take control of anything in their life, even though they really need to. So when Pluto goes Retrograde, there are power shifts, and some people fall from a place of power, and there’s a lot of folks who make plays or try to gain power from others. This is a good time to think about what exactly you have control over, and where your personal power is held. Think about your goals during this cycle, and what you want to achieve! Over the next several months, while Pluto is in its Retrograde cycle we get an opportunity to think about how we want to move our life forward again once this cycle is over. What will make us happier and more fulfilled? Pluto will be retrograde until October 4th.
April 26: Sun Conjuncts Uranus
The Sun meets up with unpredictable Uranus today. This means many of you will begin some sort of journey that can help you let go of old habits, and negative ways of thinking about yourself. This is a time of liberation! This isn’t always the most stable of Cosmic energies. But you have more positive experiences if you roll with the tides of this influence. And don’t let any unexpected changes throw you off your game, keep a positive attitude. Keep your mind open and let the past be just that, in the past where it belongs. This is a time for new and innovative ideas. Most importantly be true to who you are, and make sure and allow other people to express their desires, and to show off their special gifts and talents as well.
April 27: Mercury enters Taurus
The planet of communication shifts into a mental slowdown when it enters the practical sign of Taurus. We can let this frustrate us, or take it as a time to pay attention to the important details of our lives. It’s time to feed the senses and delve into what is more pleasurable in life. It might be difficult to just settle into this energy, and really enjoy it due to how difficult things have been for all of us. But if you let the drama go and relax, you can experience something enlightening. Don’t let anyone push you or rush you into doing anything, if you will find a nice quiet place you can Zen out, somewhere you can listen to your higher self and your guides. Most decisions won’t need to be made immediately, but make sure you keep your choices on the practical side and go over all your options first.

The relationship planet Venus enters the sign of communication Gemini today, where it will transit for much longer than usual due to its upcoming Retrograde phase! Venus is in Gemini all the way through August 7th. During this time Venus will go Retrograde in Gemini from May 13 to June 25.
With Venus in Gemini, our curiosity is strong, and this can motivate us to get more involved romantically and socially with others. Variety and change are the main themes of this influence, it’s a time when we feel more sociable, interested, engaged, and especially communicative in our relationships and around anything to do with our finances.
We definitely can be more talkative and naturally curious under this influence. Our minds are whirling with juicy information along with a stronger than normal desire to share, however, we can get lost in conversation. We can be extremely indecisive but also aware, because we can read between the linesin any form of communication. This is a time when we like to multi-task as we’re motivated by our own curiosity.
Under this influence we are more flirty, so it’s no wonder this is a time of romance as we tend to date and hook up more. There’s a need for variety and diversity both, because our minds are so charged up that our hearts tend to follow, this keeps us engaged and interested in human contact and relationships. Since Venus is involved, this energy affects ourlove lives and relationships, and with it being in the sign of Gemini, we can be more fickle and picky. But due to the Virus going around, we need to be extra careful about meeting people in person for the time being, and this might be extremely challenging.
Feeling more attracted to words, we can bond very easily with others on mental levels, but we are also more sensitive to stimulus, touch, and other vibrations that are being sent out on the airwaves. So we can feel quite good with positive energies. But we can feel very bad if we get around anything negative. The energy of Gemini is very empathic and therefore we tend to feel everyone’s else’s emotions from time to time. So you may want to be extra cautious with taking on lovers, friends cans family members emotional baggage and protect ourselves energetically. Shields up folks! This is going to be extra challenging as well, since we are in the middle of a Pandemic right now. We need to keep a degree of compassion going to help those in need, but be able to stay in our own power and not meltdown, so we can take care of those we need us!
It is a good time to connect intellectually with others, but especially in our intimate relationships and with our partners, as we uniquely feel each other’s energies. But we can be more fun, whimsical, light and breezy, but also quite animated and often funny in our relationships. So we don’t enjoy getting to deep emotionally right now, and would much rather keep things above the surface which can be helpful during this hard time.
Emotionally we can be somewhat detached or distant, but we want to enjoy ourselves. When it comes to love we are more attracted to someone’s mind, so words are usually how things spark up between two people. We just bond with people more on a mental level, and we respect good conversations and intelligent work. But we can be quite picky when it comes to showing our affections and enjoying simple pleasures.
This is a strong time for sexual activities, and tantalizing communication, as a little erotica whispered in the ears of our lovers or partners can send them over the edge! But we should be picky with the people we meet up with, and not just get it on with anyone who’s willing. Don’t take a little extra attention or an open invitation as a clear sign you should be doing anything with just anymore. And remember social distancing folks.
Venus also rules over money it finances, and there are two sides to the sign of the twins, so Gemini’s duality comes into play. As our attitude towards our finances is more easy come, easy go. We can be cheapskates in one moment and spendthrifts in the next, all depending on how much mola we have in the moment. With Venus in intellectual Gemini, we tend to spend our money on experiences that will stimulate our mind, like with movies, books, apps online, music, and any writing materials. So even when money is low we manage to come up with just enough to watch something fascinating, or purchase a good book, or just have coffee with a friend. Communication is key under these energies.
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.
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

The Last Full Moon of 2019 is slowly building up energy now, and this is right before Eclipse Season begins.
The December Full Moon illuminates in the sign of Gemini (represented by the twins of the Zodiac) on the 11th or 12th, depending on what part of the world you live in. So during this time, you may see things show up or happen in pairs.
The Universe gives the gift of clarity during a Full Moon, and highlights the duality in your life. This helps you see all sides of any given situation or the whole picture. You can feel conflicted about something in your life and want to take action, but it’s really best to wait until the day after the Full Moon occurs to make any important decisions or changes.
Love Is Serious Business! On Dec. 11th the Goddess of Love herself, Venus, meets up with Father Saturn in the sign of Capricorn. This is a time when we mean business about our love lives and financial responsibilities. A serious commitment or proposal could take place.
On Dec 12th, the Full Moon will reach its peak of fullness at 12:12 AM EST on the 12th day of the 12 month of the year! That’s pretty amazing and rare! This energy is magical and can help you create your future. What do you need to let go of so you can move forward? What needs to be released?
It’s time to Set those Intentions! This is a very potent Full Moon and the last one of the year, so you don’t want to miss out. If you can’t stay up until Midnight, make sure to Set Intentions. Practice doing energy work or rituals on Dec. 11th, when there’s a good view of the Moon.
Full Moons are the best time in a calendar month to work on letting go of what is no longer working or serving you. This particular energy helps you release what you don’t want to carry into the New Year.
During this Full Moon, you should work on letting go of any problems you have had, especially ones from last summer when the last Eclipse came together in July. There may be some unresolved issues that started back then that need your time and attention. This Full Moon energy might be an opportunity to fix something or gain some closure.
December is, of course, a very busy month, but we need to take this time (just for a day or two) and reflect on what we want to release from our life. So that we won’t bring any bad juju into 2020! One of the best ways to do this is to Set Intentions with this energy. If you’re not too sure how to go about it please follow this link Setting Intentionswith the Full Moon. Doing some sort of ritual under this energy can help give your spiritual wellness the boost it needs to make some magic happen.
This Full Moon brings new and fresh opportunities into our relationships as well. It may help you get some closure if needed. Some of you may feel this energy in a particularly strong and intense manner, so expect this energy to sort of take you over for a few days. The Zodiac Sun Signs Gemini, Sagittarius, Pisces, and Virgo may feel this Full Moon more strongly, as it pushes you to see the things you need to change in your life. But remember this Full Moon energy can be felt by all of us.
Last Full Moon of the Decade
This Full Moon is the last Full Moon of this Decade (2010-2019). The Cosmos is trying to tell us that it’s a strong time for Closure! Are you ready to complete this chapter of your life and start a new one? This is the energy you have been waiting for.
Synchronicity – 12th day of the 12th month of the year that equals 12 (2+0+1+9 =12)
This Full Moon occurs at the portal gate of 12. Numerologically speaking, 12 is not just a number that equals 3. It’s a special and very potent number. Throughout history witches, priests, Astrologers, and different spiritualities of all kinds knew the importance of the number 12.
12 are the Months of the Year
12 are the Zodiac Signs
12 are the principal Gods and Goddesses of Olympus
12 are the disciples of Jesus Christ
12 are the tribes of Israel according to the Old Testament
12 are the Labours (Challenges) of Hercules
12 are the Magical hours of the Day
12 are the Magical hours of the Night
Therefore, the Full Moon will be drenched in the Power of 12. 12 is the number of perfection, the number of Universal Wisdom and immense power. It is believed to be the number of the Angels and their power.
The Triple Conjunction that occurs right with the Full Moon is a very powerful energy.
Try to lighten up as much as you can during this Full Moon. Don’t allow your inner-critic to take over. This is not a good time to beat yourself up, it is a time to focus on your inner healing journey.
Lovely Venus is very strong during this Full Moon, and just like any good woman who knows what she wants, she can trigger you with the truth about the issues in your relationships. Venus is smack in between Saturn and Pluto, all forming a conjunction. This can make you feel powerful, assertive, but also uncertain. It’s a good time to set clear boundaries with your nearest and dearest, but it can be rather difficult to end a relationship, especially with it being the Holiday Season. Remember you have to do what’s best for you, so ignore those folks who tell you what to do.
Let go of your fears when it comes to asking for help, after all the Moon is in Gemini which is the sign of the twins. Perhaps this means we aren’t meant to work on our problems alone during this time, maybe it’s best to take the help.
This Full Moon may stir up some issues around our finances. During the Holidays we generally spend more money as it is, so we can use this energy to our advantage. Starting now work on your money issues, and make out a plan of action. Make phone calls to settle accounts or make payment arrangements. Whatever you do don’t ignore your financial responsibilities before the Full Moon comes together on the 11th/12th. As it can seriously backfire on you. And if at all possible, put some money away to save. And set some financial goals for next year. Write it all down!
However, this Full Moon can bring in financial blessings of some sort. If you are already doing well financially, do yourself a favor and find ways to give back. This energy is all about paying it forward, as this helps someone else benefit and can erase some of your Karmic Debt. There’s a strong need to find a balance between giving and receiving. Think about what you actually give back. Are you truly open to receiving? If not you can be unconsciously blocking blessings. That’s definitely something to be working on.
It is the Holiday Season, so many of you will be around your friends and family more so than usual, which often means drama! There’s going to be moments or triggers, where you are going to need to try really hard to keep your cool. It is a Full Moon, therefore, whatever problems arise will be out in the open to be dealt with. The Moon in Gemini, the sign of information and self-expression, so we can say too much once triggered. Don’t let things get too crazy. It’s best to release how your feeling slowly, so it doesn’t all come pouring out at once. Express yourself if need be, just be mindful about losing your cool. And sometimes a good argument can help fix things.
Time for Healing!
You should be using this Full Moon energy to practice self-care. Right after it occurs you can work on finding ways to relax and restore your energies. Just after the Full Moon peaks wounded healer Chiron, (the asteroid of healing) goes Direct from being Retrograde since last July! This Full Moon energy has the power to heal you. This is an ideal time to focus on your health, as it can help you find ways to boost your immune system. It’s important to do something that involves self-care, so if you need to go to the doctor (of any kind), this is a good time to make that appointment. This is amazing energy for you to work on health problems.
These healing energies are not just about working on your physical well-being, they also can help with your mental and emotional health. If you need someone to chat with about your problems, this is a good time to seek out a therapist of some kind. Or perhaps you just need a friend or family member, or perhaps a Spiritual Advisor of some kind, wink! And if you just can’t bring yourself to reach out for help, perhaps try to do something new or different, like a workout class, new diet regime, start meditation, or a Yoga class. Changing up the energies during this time can work out well.
The Full Moon in Gemini can help us to be more loving, kind, and compassionate. Our creative nature can come out strong, but you may have to get into situations where you can use it. And since we are feeling more open and can be more sensitive about other people’s feelings, we can use this energy to share love and kindness, that’s a gift. This is something we should be doing all year long, but the Holidays are always a good reminder.
On Dec. 13th the Full moon energy will still be running quite strong! And Mars makes a sweet Trine connection to spiritual Neptune. This is some serious Psychic Energy! It’s important to listen to your gut instincts and those psychic hunches, or A-Ha moments. Pay attention to your dreams as well, as your intuition will be vibrating very high. Highly sexual otherworldly experiences.
The Full Moon in Gemini can show you the duality of your life. Just like the two sides of Gemini, it can bring blessings but it might also bring in some opposition. Once the Full Moon energy breaks apart through the weekend you can reflect on just how happy or upset you’ve been with your life in 2019. This energy gives you an opportunity to let go and release anything you’ve been hanging onto emotionally or physically that is no longer working for you. Then you can start the New Year with a new beginning and hopefully a fresh start.
Mercury Goes Direct and out of Retrograde on Wednesday the 20th! Woo-hoo!
It’s been a rough Mercury in Retrograde cycle for many of you, with it being in emotionally deep Scorpio during Scorpio Season as well, (when the Sun is in Scorpio.)
But let’s just focus on the fact that it’s over, even though we do have a two week after-shadow period to get through! Things now can slowly start to go back to normal.
Take a deep breath as it’s almost time to get moving again! Thank goodness, as this one was problematic and annoying for most of us.
Mercury has spent an unusually long time in the sign of deeper feeling Scorpio, and in Retrograde since Halloween. Even though it will stay in Scorpio for a few more weeks, things can slowly start to go back to normal when it comes to communications and misunderstandings. Our inner-detective has been strong, but with Mercury direct now, some of the things we were researching or obsessing over will finally make sense and slowly start to come together.
As this shift occurs be mindful that a flood of information can start to pour in that’s difficult to understand. Take notes and make out lists, it will be helpful once this energy shifts. This info coming in can start to stress us out and mentally we can get overwhelmed.
It’s not wise to make any important decisions for the time being, as our thinking is not clear. This issue for the next week or so is our problems can be magnified and difficult to fix. Our problems might be right in our face, so we should take a step back and take a breath so we can think about what our next move should be after we are out of the after shadow period in two weeks.
Expect some “a-ha” moments over the next few weeks. But it can be a rocky start with Mercury moving so slowly, even though it’s headed in the right direction again. During this adjustment period, there may actually be more disruptions and misunderstandings. However, slowly but surely Mercury will get back to normal and so will our lives, just eventually without all the technical glitches and snafus.
As the mental energies start to calm back down whatever has been wonky or not working will soon get better, or may just be something you need to let go of.
Mercury enters the sign of more sensitive, and stronger feeling Cancer later today, on June 4th. This transits runs through June 29th! But we will have to retrace our steps back into Mercury in Cancer in July when Mercury goes Retrograde!
For now, with Mercury in Cancer, we communicate with our hearts and emotions first. We think, speak, and take in information on a deeper emotional level now. We tend to follow our gut instincts more so now, which is helpful if we listen to our intuition.
This transits influence makes us less interested in what’s happening in the real world. We can be sort of selfish, as we go more inward with our thoughts and feelings. We are more concerned about what affects us personally, which includes more focus being put on the people that are near and dear to our hearts and upbringing.
Our thoughts are more colored by our emotions and how we are feeling, which can make it more challenging to be objective or fair, although this energy can help us feel our thoughts out first before expressing them. Which means we are more sincere and authentic. This can produce stronger moments of pessimistic thinking, or negative thoughts, so we must be more mindful and perhaps work harder at thinking more positive. Some folks tend to be shyer during this time, and will need to be reassured to feel safe enough to be vulnerable. But this influence does help our communications to be more authentic and loving at times, but also full of emotions.
