A special astrological event between the Cosmic Lovers, (Venus and Mars) occurs during the magical time of Love on Valentine’s Day. But we’re feeling this energy now!
In my personal opinion, celebrating Love is a positive thing all around! Coming from the heart is important in all that we do, and we need to be reminded, especially now, as the world is scary! A special day to show our love and appreciation for each other is what Valentine’s Day is all about, no matter if it’s a lover, friend, or family member.
Venus & Mars are the planets of desire and love, and they are growing closer together for an extended amount of time in a Cosmic embrace that runs through March 15! It’s a time of the Yin and Yang, love and passion, and the merging of the divine masculine and feminine energies, which is in all of our Astrology Birth Charts.
The good news is this alignment brings in the actual energies for Love, passion, romance, and creativity. So if someone gives you a gift for Valentine’s Day, they probably really do care. There’s no faking it under this influence, and it’s an emotional time as these planets inch closer to connecting with soulful Pluto at the end of February, bringing forth the truth in all matters of Love and soul connections.
This special Cosmic alignment can light up some part of your life, so many of you will experience something to do with love or relationships during this time. All the Zodiac Signs will be touched in some way by this influence since its lasts for so long.
It’s an excellent time for new beginnings in relationships of all kinds, so romantic relationships, partnerships, and friendships are formed. And since Venus often rules over money, it can be a new start for all you business owners and entrepreneurs. This meeting brings in the right energy for creativity and drive to create something long-term.
It’s a special time for true soul connections to be made. However, we need to remember that Venus and Mars are meeting up with powerful and honest Pluto at the end of February, serving as a reminder that it can be lonely being on your own. Still, it can be just as hard to be married or in a long-term relationship, and that might need to be fixed or let go! Depending on your current situation, you can find happiness and empowerment either way. Two souls that merge under these energies can have quite a powerful experience. As we move through February, the intensity of these meetings will increase to a peak during the last weekend of the month.
Also, the planet Mercury enters the sign of Aquarius on February 14th, just in time for Valentine’s Day. All matters relating to how we process information, like communicating, learning, and traveling, are affected. Our mundane worlds shift, as our thinking turns towards creating a future that aligns with our plans and goals. Even though we like to keep these things practical, we tend to go into a much richer fantasy world regarding relationships and matters of the heart. Just make sure you keep things real! As the Cosmic Lovers move closer to their Conjunction with Pluto at the end of February, being honest about your lovers or partners and your expectations with them is extremely important!
Since this blog is about love and relationships, ask yourself what you want in your relationships, love life, and friendships next?
If you are a Leo, Virgo, and Cancer Rising or Ascendant (NOT SUN SIGNS), this alignment goes through your romantic zone in your Birth Charts. And it can run even deeper for many with it transiting your soul, sex, and intimacy zones which really can heat things up! Enjoy!
Rubys Astro Readings “Sun in Taurus” April 19 – May 20
For All Zodiac Signs Happy Birthday to all my Bulls! ♉ 🎉
While the Sun’s in Taurus, we may feel more sensual, receptive, stubborn, and determined. This shift causes the energies to slow down, but it can help us to act practical, grounded, and steady, which can be quite helpful, especially with the upcoming Pluto Retrograde cycle starting to form, which is a time we are often made to face our fears. Isolation might actually feel more comfortable for many of you over the next month or so.
We all have the sign of Taurus in our Astrology “Birth” Charts which affects us directly, and not only is the Sun in Taurus for the next month, but so are Mercury, Venus, and Uranus. This infusion of Taurus energy into our lives via the “Stellium” in Taurus forming now is about integrating tradition with evolution. A “Stellium” of planets in Taurus occurs throughout April and part of May. A Stellium is when there are more than three planets in the same sign, and the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Uranus are all in the sign of Taurus currently.
With this overabundance of Taurus energy, we can take some time to relax and simply catch our breath. It’s an opportunity to take a deeper look at the events unfolding in our lives so we can handle complicated situations with some good old-fashioned common sense. These energies encourage us to learn how to defend ourselves, resist temptation and love deeper. Love is sensual and more intimate during this cycle. We can learn to appreciate the physical world and all its beauty.
The Zodiac Sign of Taurus is ruled by the Goddess of Love herself, Venus. For better or worse, love is the most powerful energy there is, after all. So we can be fiercely passionate and emotional during this cycle.
One thing about Taurus energy is we feel a stronger need to be more comfortable than usual. Take some time to set up some space to Zen out, get all comfy and cozy for the next month, and grab a blankie and some fuzzy slippers because this is a lot of extra Taurus energy we will be under. Make sure you have somewhere safe to hang out.
This cycle shows us stability and substance. We’re drawn to more practical matters now, so there’s not a whole lot of risk-taking going on.
Under the Sun in Taurus, there’s an opportunity to explore what we truly value and who we can depend on. During the Pandemic, we’ve had some time to do some research. Now we can focus on what matters in our material world while working with our spirituality and beliefs. This lovely energy is supportive and can help us balance our spirit, mind, and body. We can experience what it’s like to manifest our physical reality as the seeds of intention we plant take root. It’s a time of harvest and to reap the rewards that are coming to us. Our determination is strong, but we still need to know we are safe and secure during this time.
Taurus energy is about loyalty, being comfortable, and using what’s worked in the past, as we like sticking to what’s familiar. We value the folks who have stayed by our side in good and bad times and honor their friendship and loyalty!
As the Sun moves through the sign of the bull, we have an opportunity to see the beauty in life. We’re more focused on the simple pleasures in life and how to feed our senses, which are aroused and highly activated, so we can have a newfound appreciation for things like food, sex, music and entertainment, beauty, and anything pleasurable! Being more repetitive and open to the things that make us feel fulfilled and alive can help us appreciate life and the world better. It’s a time to pause and stop long enough to “smell the roses” rather than be in a hurry and pass things by. Being isolated doesn’t feel as difficult under this energy, so if you are still being cautious and staying in due to Covid, it actually could be more welcoming.
The shadow side of all this Taurus energy forming is we can be more possessive and controlling, especially with our children and partners. We can be extremely stubborn and bullheaded, so it’s important to be willing to hear other people’s ideas and opinions. Check yourself and be mindful of these issues.
While the Sun is in Taurus, we should be making plans and setting goals, ones that are built to last for the long term. Put away something for a rainy day and the future. It’s not a good time to make life-altering decisions. Just plan for now if you can, as mental Mercury will start to slow down in May, yep, you guessed it, and go into its Retrograde cycle!! But will chat about that later!
Enjoy all the beauty life has to offer while the Sun is in Taurus. Discover something beautiful about your life, and find a new appreciation for those you love. Have a wonderful Taurus Season.
⭐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!
Stay Safe & Be Well ~Ruby 🌟

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
