The Last Full Moon of 2019

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 Intentions with 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. 


Have a Safe and Blessed Full Moon

Mercury Goes Direct!

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 in Cancer – Sincere Communication

*For All Zodiac Signs*

 
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.

 

Communicate From Your Soul

Full Moon in Scorpio

For All Zodiac Signs:
The build-up of energy to the Full Moon in Scorpio on May 18th has begun! This Full Moon marks the beginning of a new energy cycle for all of us! On Saturday afternoon, the Sun in Taurus opposes the Moon in Scorpio and a Full Moon occurs.

The closer to Earth the Moon gets as it builds to go Full the stronger its energies are felt, as this energy intensifies we feel it on a very deep emotional level. You’re probably already feeling it! You might feel nervous, tired, or just anxious, and lots of folks don’t sleep very well when the Full Moon starts to form, which can last through the weekend. Our dreams are usually very strong and vivid during a Full Moon and wThis is an emotional time and our energy is focused more so on romance and our relationships.
Our deepest emotions are what manifests our life! If we understand it or not, due to most of it being unconscious as the Moon rules over this part of us on a deep soul level. If we are aware of it or not! Therefore, it’s important to keep our energies on a higher vibrational level this weekend. If we can sustain a somewhat higher vibration within ourselves then our life will reflect just that and we can manifest our goals, wishes, and desires much easier.
Each month the Full Moon helps us discover certain truths, so as we gain this clarity we can work on specific wishes or desires. The Moon also help us release and let go of situations, people, or energies to make room for whatever new energies we are trying to manifest. Full Moons create endings in this way, and then two weeks later during the next New or Dark Moon we can start planting seeds for something else new to begin, so we are always moving energies in and out of our lives.
During this Full Moon, the Universe is inviting you to work on something specifically! And that all depends on just where the Full Moon is going through your own personal Astrology “Birth Chart”. This tells you what part of your life you should be focusing on, but you probably are already being made of aware of what it is about by now.
Under this particular Full Moon, we have to deal with the Taurus-Scorpio energies and create some sort of balance between what’s considered to be “yours” and “ours!” The energy is focused on how we feel versus our own personal transformation. While the Taurus energy wants us to deal with matters around personal values, material things, possessions, and security. The Scorpio energy rules things like shared possessions, change, discovery, and transformation. The Sun in Taurus encourages us to feel happier by keeping things simple, while the Scorpio Moon is more complex feeling and wants us to dive deeper into the mysteries of life.
This Full Moon is pushing and pulling on us emotionally to find a balance between these two very different energies. And we tend to make some pretty strong emotional declarations during this time, so the pressure is building up within us, and now is the time when this energy has to come out and be released in one way or another! Like a boiling pot of water, something has to overflow.
My best advice is to find constructive ways to release these overwhelming feelings through some sort of self-expression. So if you can talk to a friend and vent about how you are feeling, or maybe write in a journal. Or go somewhere private and vent out loud! Yell, Scream, or Cry out those feelings and let things go and release whatever is bothering you.
Full Moons are about exposing or illuminating issues that are already there, but that has not yet been dealt with.
The Full Moon will light up any conflict you might having right now and intensity it! With the Moon all shiny and full in the night sky, it is symbolic for any illumination that occurs in our own lives. But since these feelings and our Ah-ha moments are new and emotional, they can come out suddenly! It’s the right time to express ourselves and for these feelings to just come out into the open. But proceed with caution, since we are just learning ourselves what these energies are about, so we may be quite irrational and not make a lot of sense as of yet!
This Full Moon also is occurring right around the time that Venus and Uranus align which can add surprises and revelations. This alignment also connects to deeper feeling Pluto which can cause strong need to make some sort of changes that feels necessary.
Have a Happy Blessed Full Moon,

Jupiter Retrograde – Find Your Gifts!


Jupiter Retrograde – Find Your Gifts!

For All Zodiac Signs


It’s a time to take a step back to review plans and projects as giant Jupiter makes its yearly backward trip into its Retrograde Cycle for the next four months. With Jupiter in Retrograde, it’s a time to re-think goals and plans, especially ones ruled by Jupiter. This is really an opportunity to question ourselves about the things we thought we already knew so we can develop new perspectives or beliefs around what we are planning next for our future.

With Jupiter Retrograde we get a once a year opportunity to go back over certain things and possibly collect the rewards or gifts we missed out on before! Maybe you just weren’t ready yet the first time around, or open to certain possibilities. But now you get another chance to experience a bright prospect that lucky Jupiter can bring.

During this Retrograde phase, you can see just what part of your life you’ve been overdoing it in, or where there’s been excess, greed, or extravagance. You just may need to slow it down a bit, as adventures & projects can be moving along too fast and mistakes get made or things can be misinterpreted. Let things unfold naturally during this time, which can be a bit of a struggle through the 21 of April with it being Aries Season, and again through the first part of June with mental Mercury in Aries, so our minds want to do nothing more than to move forward, fast and quick! But remember taking your time now during this Jupiter Retrograde period can be beneficial in the long run. As certain realities become known and this energy comes in stronger you may start to lose your motivation and enthusiasm.

Making progress might come to a halt as this cosmic turnaround tends to slow us down. This is a cycle of reflection, you should be focused on what gives your life deeper meaning, and what can help you feel more abundant. This isn’t typically a time of difficulty, but when Jupiter gets ready to turn Retrograde (its Shadow Period) it can seriously slow us down, as we adjust to this more intense feeling influence. This actually can cause you to feel a sense of urgency and desire to find something more expansive in your life and to get rid of the things that are restricting you, holding you back, or that are keeping you from happiness and satisfaction.

Starting April 8 through August 11 is a time for cutbacks on the activities that don’t help you reach your goals. The Universe has a way of getting us to take a seat and chill out, this Retrograde phase gives you that opportunity to make sure the plans and projects you’re working on are still what you want and need. It’s a time to rid of any distractions that just waste your time, energy, or money! Don’t focus on what isn’t working or what’s slowing falling away now, rest assured it was probably a waste of your time anyway. Besides whatever doesn’t work out at this time, is probably a gift to you from the Universe, because there was a reason of you understand it or not. Once Jupiter is direct, whatever plans or projects you have been working on will start to come together. We’ve got plenty of time to figure it out.

Most of the time Retrograde planets get a pretty bad rap! But when Jupiter is Retrograde it can actually be a good thing! You just might receive some sort of random good luck in whatever part of your life you are the most focused on at this time. This is a time for second chances and opportunities, and for amazing things start to happen that involve your work, traveling, legalities, real estate, and of course your spiritual growth. Over the next four months, we get a chance to actually make big strides, but only if it’s something you really want and have been working towards. If you try to be tricky and lie or deceive others to get ahead now or take advantage of people, your success will come crumbling down once Jupiter goes direct again in June.

Over the next few months whatever has held you up from growing and evolving on a soul level is where Jupiter’s Retrograde will be more evident. This cosmic turnabout is a time of big surprises and reveals! Many of you are simply repeating a pattern of some sort that you might have done repeatedly lifetimes before, which has been blocking your success and personal happiness. Over the next four months, Jupiter Retro will light up these behaviors or patterns. Old learned behaviors from our past in this life or past lives will be shown to us now. Therefore, this can be quite a revealing time that helps you understand just what part of your life needs help, so you can remove any blocks and achieve greater success and stop unhealthy behaviors once and for all!

Jupiter Retrograde happens every year! It lasts for about four months. It’s a great time to sort out exactly what you truly want from life, and to plan on how you can go get it! By the time Jupiter goes direct, you will see things start to become a reality, and will be able to move closer towards your goals with success, and hopefully some happiness.

Here’s something interesting to look at. If you were born with your Natal Jupiter in Retrograde in your Personal Astrology Birth Chart, it is believed that you might have to achieve what you needed to in a past or former lifetime. So since you didn’t get a chance to complete an important destiny, calling, or lesson you may just be getting to do it all over again during this life and finally fulfill
that destiny.

Over the coming days and weeks ahead make sure to take some “me-time” for yourself. Do some soul-searching about events or situations that be the most pressing over the last few months or so. Think about what new prospects or gifts you can re-discover.

Have an insightful and fulfilling Jupiter in Retrograde,
~Ruby

Spring Equinox/Aries Season

Sun in Aries/Spring Equinox
March 20, 2019

For All Zodiac Signs

The Sun shifts into the sign of Aries on March 20, 2019, and it’s the official first day of Spring as the “Spring Equinox” (Vernal Equinox) occurs, which is also the first day of the Astrological New Year!

Aries Season
The Sun will be in the sign of Aries from March 20, 2019 through April 19, 2019. And Aries Season begins! But did you know this affects each and every one of us, no matter your Sun Sign. With the Sun moving into this fiery but also empowering energy, we are awakened and there can be some great things are on the horizon. This is a time of new beginnings, as the light of the Sun slowly takes over the dark. We are more determined and motivated under the Sun in Aries cycle, but we should be careful about being impulsive and hasty. Our personal goals become very important, and there’s a strong urge to move forward and get things done under this new zodiac cycle. We are motivated to initiate something by taking the lead and making our own path. We notice our gut instincts more under this influence, so it’s good time to listen to them and pay attention! We are all going to be moving at a much faster pace now, and for some folks, this might be a lot faster than what they’re used to.

Spring Equinox
Spring is a season of growth and rejuvenation, and this Astrological New Year is urging you to explore new directions. During the Spring Equinox the energies can be extremely potent. This is the beginning of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere and the energetic turning point from one season to the next. This is when the sunshine finally starts to grow through the Summer Solstice. We get to live more outwardly again, as we crawl back out to the land of the living, and get to spend more time outdoors once again and winter slowly fades away.

During this time of year many people around the world celebrate the Spring Equinox with all kinds of interesting old traditions and festivities to honor the Goddess of Renewal or Spring. Along with the Earth’s ability to regenerate itself once again, this season is obviously very important for many different reasons. It’s a time of awakenings, beginnings, and positive energy chasing the dark of night away.

Ask for Changes
As the seasons change, a gateway opens where we experience the light and dark. This makes for a great time to think about what energies you want to draw to you. It’s a time to think about what you want to manifest in your life next. Of course we all want to be healthy and have lots of money, but this is a time when we should get more detailed when making our “Intentions” List. So it’s a great time for setting powerful intentions or making out Wish Lists, and for doing energy work of any kind.

So get comfortable and take a breathe, and ask the Universe or whatever it is you believe in to bring in what you need and choose. And get a little detailed about it what you want to happen. Ask them to put you on the path towards what will make you happy! Think about what kind of things you want to happen next. What do you need to move forward and obtain your goals? Write it all down and make it perfectly clear to the Universe what it is your asking for.

Lots of people celebrate this season with religious or spiritual celebrations. But we must not forget the history, and that all of these festivities stem from the fact, that the Spring Equinox is first and foremost a major “Astrological Event.” This event is actually more about about the Sun’s light expanding, and it’s shift into the sign of Aries, the first Zodiac sign of the Astrological Calendar. This light represents the promise of a greater more warm life-changing energy coming into our lives.

And Easter is just one of those celebrations that actually began many Moon’s ago, as Eggs and Bunnies originally were symbols of fertility and sex, and represented new life beginning. Unfortunately, like most holidays it has been commercialized and even moved to a date on the calender that doesn’t match up with its origins and the Spring Equinox.

If you’ve been struggling through the Winter months, then consider this event to be just like a calendar New Year! In fact, it’s much stronger in energy because it is a Equinox. Be inspired that this is a new cycle and a renewed energy, and remember sometimes you have to believe that something can and will change.

May the Sun’s warmth and Spring’s Energy bring about new beginnings for you that lead to your deepest dreams and desires coming true.

Venus Goes Retrograde

image

October 5 – November 15
By Rubys Readings

Venus goes Retrograde in the sign of Scorpio. 

Every 18 months, Venus the planet of love, relationships, and money appears to go backward. Let’s start off with the good news, Venus transiting in Retrograde can help you take a break from your love life, so you can take a step back and maybe gain a better perspective about how you are really feeling about your relationships, and maybe your financial situation. You can take this time to ask yourself if your romantic world is really making you happy, and if there’s something you need to change.

During Venus in Retrograde your love life may enter a fated time, where giving and receiving love and affection just doesn’t come as naturally and can actually be more difficult than usual. Old friends, lovers, partners (both intimate and business), and family members can come back around and may suddenly reappear, and you might even relive past life experiences to sort out some Karmic Issues. People often don’t realize Venus rules over our money situations as well. It’s traditionally believed that during a Venus Retrograde phase that you shouldn’t invest or buy luxury items.

Venus in Retrograde is a time to go inward and get in touch with your heart, it’s a time of introspection and to maybe reassess your love life and finances. You may become particularly interested in someone or something of value that would bring you pleasure. A soul mate might show up, as destined encounters are very possible during this period. But don’t be fooled, because you can experience feelings that a chance encounter with an old flame is inevitable. But it usually doesn’t last for long, instead they come back around for us to review our old relationship and maybe remember something and do some forgiving and healing. It’s just best to wait until Venus turns back direct and out of Retrograde to make a move forward in a relationship or financial endeavor.

During this particular Venus in Retrograde, if you happen to have the Sun, Moon, or your Rising (Ascendant) Sign in either the sign of Libra or Taurus, this can be a particularly strong cycle for you. So you may want to take some extra special precautions. This can be an important time in your life when you’re just rubbed the wrong way by a lover or friend, or even business partner, and you may feel like reconsidering if you want to be in your current relationship and if you’re happy or not. 

Getting married under this energy is not recommended. So if someone asks you to marry them or vice versa it’s best to wait until after the Retrograde cycle is over. It is not a time for heavy financial or even personal commitments either. It’s just difficult for anyone in a new relationship to gain any kind of commitment or have longevity while Venus is moving backwards. Marriages and business relationships formed now probably won’t last. If you are going to make a commitment in love or around money might I suggest you wait until the Retrograde phase is over in mid-November. This goes for any ceremonies that are a re-commitment of some kind as well.

Full Moon in Aries

20180923_191007

 

Full Moon
Monday, Sept 24

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:

-PST 7:52 pm
-EST 10:52 pm
-CST 9:52 pm

Have a Safe & Blessed Full Moon

Sun in Libra

Saturday, Sept. 22 – Oct. 23

“SUN IN LIBRA”

Happy Birthday, Libra! And Happy Libra Season to all.

The Sun shifts from practical, detailed Virgo into the sign of harmony and balance, Libra.

This is our Autumnal Equinox, and we will experience equal hours of daylight as darkness.

Today is something to talk about because not only is the Sun moved into Libra, but so has the “great messenger” Mercury. So our core self and minds are in sync, besides the constant need to for balance these aspects turn our focus towards our relationships and brings in the energy of cooperation and equality.

You will feel sharp and aware of issues of injustices or unfair treatment of others, which may be a direct result of you taking a stand for yourself or others, especially if it’s around those you love. It’s easier to see all sides to most situations, so remember you can’t make everyone happy, because decision making can prove to be difficult. You might start playing the role of peacemaker under this influence, so you can be quite diplomatic when it comes to dealing with problems or business dealings.

We desire peace and harmony and create that energy both aware and unconsciously. Be careful to not seek out the approval of others too much during this cycle, as it can be difficult to know who’s telling the truth sometimes, follow your gut instincts during Libra Season as our inner awareness and psychic-self is at its strongest. You have an extra boost of intuition now with mental Mercury now in in the sign of Libra, as well, for most of October, so it’s just natural to study other folks and their behaviors and body language, which can tell you an awful lot about a person, go ahead and try it, you will see exactly what I am talking about. 

This transit can especially affect those with Libra Suns signs or Rising signs. Libra’s should feel a great big jolt of confidence and playfulness over these next four weeks, and the rest of you may be made more aware of how to balance what is required of you both emotionally and physically to achieve balance.

While under the Sun in Libra we will strive to keep some sort of balance and greater equilibrium for the next 28 days or so. Our relationships will also become of great interest and focus from September 22nd through October 23rd.

FYI we can struggle with how to handle our relationships with Venus the planet of love in the mysterious sign of Scorpio during this time, and with planet Venus going into its Retrograde cycle soon. Relationships are under a microscope and are about to get a big dose of reality through the end of November!

Mercury in Leo – Express Yourself

Astro Alert
Mercury in Leo
Express Yourself

For All Zodiac Signs:
Mercury enters the sign of proud and expressive Leo today! This transit will be in this sign until September 5th, which is longer than usual due to Mercury going Retrograde, from July 25 through August 18, which is usually a challenging time. But this blog is about Mercury’s time in the sign of Leo, which affects all of us!

With Mercury in the sign of Leo our thinking is very strong, so we can feel more confident and tend to demand respect, and can get quite upset if we feel someone is talking down to us or is not listening to what we are saying. One thing we should be careful of especially once the Sun Enters Leo around July 22nd is just how aggressive, pushy, and over bearing we can get. There will be a whole lot of Leo energy swirling around and this means some folks won’t know how to handle this fiery energy, so be mindful and if you feel like your going to Roar take a break and get space!

It’s a good time to focus on your goals, and the more magnificent the goal, the better. This cycle can help you organize your thoughts to concentrate for long periods of time, which can help you meet your goals. Our minds our full of energy and our will power is strong, we are full of perseverance, and have a stronger sense of purpose.

Our minds may just naturally go to the positive, so we can be more kind, easy-going, and cheerful, even though on occasion we can be quite opinionating, stubborn, arrogant, and to forceful.

The little actions we take do really matter in this energy, but the details aren’t as important because we want to get to the point and have some fun. We are much more expressive and a little dramatic, and can do well when we get an opportunity to express ourselves, so giving speeches or telling stories can go quite well.

We also can be very charming, convincing, and persuasive because we are full of confidence and pride, especially when we speak or write. Therefore, we should be mindful to listen to people to hear them and not just to reply, because we might want to chat a lot more then usual. Also watch for gossip, it is all too easy to start talking about other folks during this time, and we can get wrapped up in what we’re talking about and end up over sharing with the wrong people.

With the planet Mercury ruling our thoughts and how we express ourselves in the sign of Leo, we may be particularly concerned with our looks and how we present ourselves, under this energy people feel more like dressing up as we are on the grand stage of life and everyone else is the audience. This doesn’t necessarily mean we will want attention from everyone however, we can be very picky and choosy about who we draw to us and be actually more closed off or even shy emotionally about our deeper truths.

It is NOT a good time to starve yourself, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t diet or eat healthier, but make sure to eat several small meals throughout the day to keep your blood sugar level. Depriving yourself will not go well and can make you feel rather aggressive and moody! You might just crave extra saucy, fatty food, so don’t go overboard.

After working hard we also will feel more like playing just as hard, so set time aside to allow your inner child to explore and have some fun, this is a very natural way of being under this Leo energy and if we choose to ignore it and not allow ourselves some time to relax and enjoy something we love we can become quite irritated and lonely.

Full Moon in Scorpio

Rubys Astro Readings
April 2018
“Full Moon in Scorpio”

The Full Moon is in Scorpio this month and occurs on Sunday, April 29th, at 7:58 PM Central & 8:58 PM Eastern.

In Astrology, Full Moons are oppositions between the Sun and Moon. This energy is tense and challenging, but also exciting and captivating. It’s a good time to work on balancing these two very different energies. All Full Moons bring up and out our deeper emotions to be felt, so we can better understand these feelings and deal with them.

This particular Full Moon in Scorpio can help us to let go of any fears we have and breakthrough to the next level of our reality which is Evolution.

Full Moons will bring up issues around something in your life that needs to be fixed or aligned. This time around the balance we seek is between our connections to this physical reality, so our human-self is symbolized by the Sun in Taurus, and the connection we have to our deeper emotions or Soul Path, which is symbolic with the Moon in Scorpio. It’s time to think about our deep emotional connections to others and ourselves, and how they are essential to our human experience, as these feelings play an important role in defining and understanding what we value most. The Sun in Taurus is when we discover what we require to be emotionally happy, and with the Moon in Scorpio, we’re discovering what we fear and desire.

The Full Moon in Scorpio shines brightly and helps to illuminate what’s been hidden, repressed, or kept secret. This is a time when we get rid of old emotional conditioning that was taught to us from our past, so in other words old behaviors that are no longer serving us and ways of thinking that have become outdated and don’t work anymore. Often old behaviors are mistaken for old family values, so don’t confuse the two, or keep doing the same thing or thinking in the same way out of fear of change, or you can get hooked into your past behaviors and not leave it behind. Scorpio energy is about letting go of our past so we can embrace our future.

The Sun in Taurus energy teaches us how to find comfort and stability, and symbolizes the connection we have with our personal values. This energy is about maintaining healthy relationships and keeping up boundaries with those folks and things that are negative and that hold us down from accomplishing what we truly desire.

The Full Moon in Scorpio can have us craving ways to transform and resurrect ourselves, this energy puts us in touch with our deepest desires and worst fears. If we look at our past traumas to see how they made us feel powerless, we will be able to tear down the walls we’ve built around our hearts and felt protected by and be vulnerable enough to trust others to help us.

This energy is about being vulnerable without fear of falling victim to the power of love, so all you single ladies and gentleman if you want a good solid relationship, pay attention to any vulnerability issues you may have, this is the key to making a relationship really work for you. This Full Moon energy can help us learn how to trust others again. Only by acknowledging our fears can we truly transform into powerful people that use our inner strength to love and be vulnerable in a more positive sense of the word, which means we trust the ones we love enough to not hurt us.

This Full Moon occurs right around the time of a Mars-Pluto alignment, and this adds to the themes of personal growth, transformation, and intensity. It’s also Square to the North Node of Destiny, and it can feel shocking, as it can drag us out of our comfort zone with a jolt that feels quite disruptive and possible at first seems counter-productive. This lunation is at harmony with Karmic Saturn however, which leads to an ultimate sense that we are doing the right things for our long-term growth and success, even if at first it doesn’t feel like it.

The absolute best way to work with this Full Moon in Scorpio energy is to see everyone as connected. It can help you to work with those that are committed to waking up spiritually and making changes that help us all as a whole. It’s best to put your energy or attention to where you have influence, rather than pushing those folks who aren’t ready yet! Choose your battles wisely.

This Full Moon helps you stay in touch with your deeper feelings and can help strengthen your relationships with your unconscious mind, as information comes forth that can help you and your partner or loved one. The future doesn’t seem so difficult when you let go of past trauma and pain because more than likely whatever you fear the most has already happened.

Allow your heart to be open and love all of who you are, even that part of yourself you keep hidden from others, so the person who was there before all the trauma and pain, that person who has been there all along in your soul can be seen again and shine! Take the time to be kind to yourself, and have the courage to explore your deepest truths during this Full Moon in Scorpio.

Blessed Full Moon

Setting Intentions with the New Moon Revised!

 

“Setting Intentions with the NEW MOON”

There’s a New Moon on Tues, June 13th, which makes this the best time of the Lunar Month to set some powerful intentions. These Wish Lists can be about your future goals. Learning how to work with the cycles of the Moon can be a life-changing experience.

*Setting Intentions*

During a New Moon cycle, we should be asking the Universe for new beginnings, by planting seeds of intention from our heart and getting in touch with our higher-self. It’s a good time to be grateful for what we have and work on manifesting what energy we want to come into our lives next.  We can create whatever it is we desire, such as a better life, more money, happiness, love. It really doesn’t matter, but we have to do something physical and spiritual together to make it really happen and stick! And no not everything you want is going to just magically appear. But you will more than likely get put on the path towards your wishes, even if you don’t realize it and that sometimes take time, but it’s nice to know at least we are headed in the right direction.

Sometimes when you Set Intentions with the New Moon energy amazing things happen and you get what you want very quickly!

At least by “Setting Intentions” with the energy of the New Moon, you’ve made it clear to the Universe what path you’d like to begin heading down and that’s a start. Then the energies will begin to line up to get you there, and if you continue to stay persistent and connected, and keep doing this work it truly can change your life circumstances for the better. I am like those old commercials, I don’t just talk about it, I have lived it! LOL

The intentions that are set during a New Moon will set you on the right path towards your desires. The New Moon is a magical time of beginnings when you can recharge goals and set new ones. During the New Moon, we often experience some major “energy shift.

Here are some ideas on just how to Manifest under a New Moon:

1. Get clear about something you want and write it down.

2. Share your intention with someone in a supportive way, who will be encouraging.

3. Do something to demonstrate your commitment to your intention. Take even a small action around what it is your asking to create! Send an email, move something in your house, or make a phone call perhaps.

4. Acknowledge that you did what you said you would, and then take the next step.

So have a conversation with the Universe (meaning your higher power, God, Source Energy, higher-self, Guides, Angels, etc), and work with the New Moons energy to help illuminate the path that will lead you toward your deepest desires. Simply ask to be led to what you’re choosing to manifest. Remember to be patient and simply allow the time needed, things don’t always happen right away, as we can get taken down certain paths to find our way to what it is we’re looking for. And sometimes magic just happens, you just never know!

What if you don’t know how to “Set Intentions” under the New Moon?

Follow the Steps below to learn how:

Step One: Clear your sacred space

Clear the energy of the area or room you’re using to do New Moon work in. Think about where you are going to do this work because we create an energy vortex wherever we sit or sleep. This is mainly why you feel so good in your favorite chair, because it’s comfortable and feels safe and secure, but also because you have created an energy vortex in that spot.

You are simply calling in some positive energy to work with. Burn some sage or Incense and clear the energies, so say a blessing or a special prayer that helps you feel cleared and protected. Next, close your eyes and breathe deeply and call upon your guides, Angels, or higher power and ask to have your sacred space cleared, and then to fill up your special space you are working in with the energy of love and light. Never leave energy empty, always fill it with something once you’ve cleared it. Never leave a VOID when working with energy.

Step Two: Set the atmosphere

Set the mood for your New Moon Ritual and burn some special incense, light some candles (colors of candles do have different energies and meanings), and play some music that helps you feel spirituality connected. This can be a very different experience for everyone. Just makes sure to use whatever colors, music, and tools that make you feel calm, centered, happy, and peaceful.

Step Three: Setting Intentions

You’re going to need a notebook, paper, or a journal and something to write with.

Now write what energy you’d like the Universe to bring in. Simply write your deepest desires, wishes, and questions. Think about what energy you’re trying to manifest or create. Write a letter, like as if you are talking to an old friend. Think about what energy you’re trying to bring into your life and be detailed about what you want to see happen and bring in both.

As you’re doing this work and setting your intentions, here are some helpful questions you can think about. For example; ask for what you’re choosing or what changes you would like to see in your life? What are you or should you be calling in? How do you feel about what is happening in your life now, and what do you want to change and create? Think about your long-term goals and future. Be careful about focusing on the how, why, and when of your goals, focus more on what it is you are choosing and how you want to feel. Only see the ultimate end result and getting what it is you are choosing, in your mind’s eye, don’t focus on how you get it, or the hurdles you have to jump, or sacrifices you may have to make, allow the Universe to shoulder the burden once you have requested what you want and let them take care of the rest.

Step Four: Visualize

It’s time to visualize what you’ve written. Close your eyes and take long deep breaths, in your nose and out your mouth. See the energy of your heart center, that’s in the middle of your chest, not over your pumping heart, but your spiritual heart or commonly referred to as the “Heart Chakra.” Visualize yourself in what you’re actually trying to create or manifest. For example: see yourself living in that new home, falling in love with that Soul-Mate, driving that new car. Just don’t think it, make sure and FEEL IT as if you were really experiencing what you’re visualizing!

Allow the Universe to show you which paths to follow over the next 30 days, and look for any signs or symbols that will help you along your journey so you may bring in what you truly desire and let go of what you don’t want! Don’t forget to show gratitude in some way and tell the Universe thank you in advance.

You also might gain some clarity around something or someone that is not serving your higher good and could be blocking you from your desires. So, in other words, pay attention after you’re done doing this work.

Have a blessed New Moon. And good luck.
