Mercury in Leo – Express Yourself

Standard

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

Standard

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!

Standard

 

“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.

St Patrick’s Day New Moon

Standard

March NEW MOON
by Rubys Readings

The NEW MOON will occur early Saturday morning in the sign of Pisces. This energy affects each and every one of us in one way or another no matter what Zodiac Sign you are.

This NEW MOON gives us an opportunity to start something new and fresh, as it’s time to start new endeavors.

This is the time to follow the traits of the sign that the New Moon comes together in, and since this NEW MOON will be in the sign of the Fish, Pisces! Therefore we should be working on tolerance and judgment of others, and letting go of worry about people’s imperfections, that includes our own with ourselves.

Allow yourself to take a risk, but make sure it’s a thought out one, or maybe start something that requires you to use your imagination or visualization skills, and also be aware consciously of making time to enjoy spiritual activities that help you to zen out a bit and rejuvenate yourself. This is a great time to share your deep desires and dreams with someone you trust.

Under this very strong Pisces energy, we have the chance to make some pretty important changes to our lives, as we might feel inspired under this NEW MOON and feel motivated enough to take some major leaps of faith!

The NEW MOON this weekend is making a strong connection to wounded healer, CHIRON!

This can put us in touch with our souls potential to help us heal our greatest wounds! This energy is strong and quite potent, so if you’re doing anything spiritual or some kind of energy work it can be quite successful at this time. So you may just have a breakthrough this weekend, because this is a very potent time for changes. You might see things from a different perspective now, and this helps us move away from old learned behaviors and patterns that no longer serve us in our life. So set boundaries now, release old habits and more. Use this NEW MOON and CHIRON’S healing energy to help you make a big difference in your life.

Pay Attention Folks!!!

Even though this NEW MOON is a compassionate one, it’s also making a tense square to impatient MARS, and this affects all of us no matter what your Zodiac Sign may be!

We must check ourselves for feeling impatient, and for making sudden impulsive moves. It can get rowdy out there folks! People are also a tad bit confused about how they are feeling, especially around how they are thinking with mental MERCURY and VENUS both in MARS-ruled Aries!

MARS is on the Cusp of Changing Signs today also, so this mean we can feel extremely vulnerable, aggressive, and even volatile! So if you notice someone getting heated-up or frustrated it’s just for the best that you walk away and deal with them another time, or maybe not at all! Our words can cut like a knife, and people are feeling sensitive already, so they can offend each other much more easily. This all can cause us to make some major changes in our lives that help us start some sort of New Beginning!

The SUN and MOON are also forming a somewhat nice connection to thought provoking URANUS, this means we might struggle with our independence, but also may not be to sure about walking away from a commitment.

The MOON will be in Aries by 2 PM CST, 3 PM EDT time on Saturday, so again if you are one who wants to work with the energies of the MOON and SET INTENTIONS, your best bet is before these times. For those who are well seasoned at doing this kind of work, the MOON will technically go into the VOID on Saturday morning around 8 AM CST, and 9 AM EST times.

Jupiter Retrograde in Scorpio

Standard

Jupiter Retrograde in Scorpio

March 8, 2018
by Ruby

Jupiter in Leo

 

Jupiter enters its Retrograde phase on March 8, 2018, in the sign of Scorpio until July 10th. While Jupiter is Retrograde we should be reviewing our visions, ideals, and belief system. Jupiter is the planet of luck that brings blessings, good fortune, opportunities and more. When Jupiter is moving forward it brings amazing gifts, and this can be in any part of our lives.

Because Jupiter is in the sign of Scorpio through November and during this Retrograde cycle. The themes that come up will be around our value system and personal power! But there may be issues around deceit, obsessions, and morals as well.

Jupiter Retrogrades transit lasts for about 4 months. During this time the general vibe turns into a more philosophical or spiritual introspection, as we get to reflect on our belief system. Issues around our personal growth and development, happiness and success will come up to review or be worked on.

While Jupiter is Retrograde it will be making a beautiful connection to powerful Pluto that can help us seriously detox! This energy purifies our bodies and soul, and it brings on more positive changes that can bring in much success with it. You won’t have to make changes or react to unexpected events so much, instead, this is a more natural development that increases one’s power and influence and brings spiritual and personal growth. There are very powerful forces that will be working behind the scenes to help raise us up to a higher level of evolution.

Then we have to contend with Jupiter Retrograde making a strong connection to mental Mercury!
You’ll be more optimistic but can slip up and focus too much on the bigger picture and ignore the little details that matter. We also will have to pay extra attention to how we are expressing ourselves during this time as we can act above others, arrogant, and ignorant and with so many signs in Aries including Mercury during this time, we can really lose our cool. Jupiter’s influence makes us feel overly optimistic and this can get out of control, so we must watch to not overdo or overextend ourselves, or we can push too hard and go to far especially if you have an addictive personality.

Jupiter Retrograde helps us learn how to grow in whatever area of our lives it is affecting, it’s that area we need to work on that can be so important. So during this cycle, we need to take extra time to take stock and to make sure everything is in order before you continue on that path in your life. You’ll find challenges around self-worth, so ask yourself if you really are ready to receive some sort of good fortune, and possibly a new romance or an increase in wealth and abundance. There might be a behavior that you are having a hard time breaking like greed or addiction, and it’s out of control.

During this “Jupiter Retrograde” cycle will be a time to recognize and admit you have a problem. Many people suffer more from feeling unworthy and not be open to things getting better than you will believe. Change is hard for some folks! Things can go so out of control during this time that an intervention or some drastic event has to occur to shake you out of your rut, stubbornness, or ignorance. The thing is if when Jupiter goes back to it’s normal pace and out of its Retrograde cycle, you can come to terms with the issues that are more relevant and be prepared and ready to bounce back and move toward better happiness and success.

2018 – The Year of the Earth Dog

Rubys Astro Readings
Happy Chinese New Year!
2018 – The Year of the Earth Dog

The Solar Eclipse also marks the time for the Chinese New Year for 2018, and this is the year of the Earth Dog. According to the Chinese Zodiac, this year includes being honest, taking responsibility seriously, fairness and equality themes, and exposing things that have been hidden.

The Year of the Dog in the Chinese Lunar Calendar starts this Saturday, February 17th.

The Dog is the Eleventh animal in the 12-year cycle of Chinese Zodiac Signs, those who are born in the Year of the Dog include the folks who came into the world in 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994 and 2006 – and also those born this year 2018, and those who will be born in 2030 in the 12-year cycle of the Zodiac.

In Chinese Astrology, each Zodiac year (rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and pig) is not just associated with an animal sign, but also one of five elements, which are metal, wood, water, fire, and earth.

The year 2018 meets the element of Earth and so 2018 is an Earth Dog Year!

According to Chinese Horoscopes predictions, the Year of the Earth Dog in 2018 is going to be a good year in all its aspects. Fresh and refreshed, the Earth Dog will accelerate the initiation of bringing in new things.

While the Year of the Earth Dog will be generally a good year for finances for many of you no matter your Zodiac Sign, however, you might want to pay special attention to your health this year. The year 2018 is an ideal time to start eating healthy, so it’s also a good time to take on new exercise programs or sports and work on getting rid of bad or unhealthy habits.

The Year of the Earth Dog will also bring many big changes economically and this can signify growth. But on the other hand, there could also be adjustments in the economy, especially in stock markets. So it’s a good time to be cautious about your investments in 2018.

The year 2018 will also be a time when new business opportunities that are created have the potential to go well financially. Cash flow should actually increase and its the right time to build up your reputation or social status around your work or business.

Therefore, 2018 is a good time to enjoy life and be social, so attend parties, social functions, and weddings. Also, the Year of the Earth Dog can bring more luck to both already existing marriages and ones that happen this year. The ruling number in 2018, so the Year of the Earth Dog is 9. The number 9 is considered lucky in Chinese Astrology, as it holds the energy of longevity, abundance, and prosperity for all the signs of the Zodiac.

The story of the Dog in Chinese Astrology is quite interesting, as the dog is considered to be man’s best friend who understands the human spirit and obeys its master, wealthy or poor. The Chinese regard this as an auspicious animal. So if a dog happens to randomly show up at your house, this is considered a symbol of good fortune to come. The invincible God Erlang in Chinese legends used a loyal wolfhound to help him capture monsters.

So at the stroke of midnight make sure and make a Wish to help usher in the spirit of good health, wealth, and prosperity!

Positive New Moon Ahead

Standard

Astro News By Ruby
Positive New Moon Ahead

A harmonious NEW MOON comes together on December 18 & 19, and in the sign of adventurous Sagittarius, which makes it the best time for all of the signs of the Zodiac to reflect on what it is they truly want to let go of or release, and what they want to open up to and create space for. The New Moon is our gift from the Cosmos, so allow this harmonic energy to bring something special to you during this Holiday Season. Stay open to the possibilities.

The New Moon in Sagittarius is going to be smack in between the goddess of love, Venus, and Saturn the lord of Karma. Saturn is just about to shift into Capricorn from Sagittarius itself, and he won’t be back in Sagittarius for nearly 30 years! With Saturn, Venus, and Uranus all working together in harmony, we can expect this New Moon to create some seriously positive change within our relationships and around some of our financial situations.

Setting Intentions

I say it over and over again, the best time to set powerful intentions during a lunar month is at the time of the New Moon! This is the when the Sun and the Moon meet in their most harmonious union. Take some time to make out a wish list and set your powerful intentions, and if you’d like to know what this lovely New Moon symbolizes for you, then purchase a “New Moon Report” from me.

You can email, message, or even text me and ask me, “How will the New Moon benefit me? healingruby@yahoo.com

New Lessons Are Coming!

We can look at December 18-20 as a turning point, a chapter is closing that is full of lessons and challenges you have experienced over the past three years while Saturn was in the sign of Sagittarius. On Dec 20, Saturn moves into the sign of Capricorn for the first time since the late 1980’s. There are new lessons and challenges we must work on now, but you’ll have three whole years to complete them, so until December 2020.

If you have passed Saturn’s challenges over the last three years look for rewards and blessings to show up! Saturn in Capricorn will bring new and different kinds of Karmic issues into our lives. Wherever Saturn moves in your own personal “Astrology Birth Chart” is the part of your life this energy will affect and is where that fate awaits you. This is also the part of life where you will be examining your goals and relationships and much more.

If you’d like to know just what lessons Saturn has in store for you over the next three years, please order an Extended New Moon report, and I will add the extra information all about Saturn and what you should expect. I will do the research into your personal “Astrology Birth Chart” and send all your information via email in a nice detailed report that’s full of all kinds of Astrological information to help you get through the rest of the year and into 2018!

Holiday Season

The best days to get that Holiday shopping done is December the 17 & 23, and then around the 27 & 28 for those of you who celebrate or observe other Holidays.

Mercury is in Retrograde just through the 22nd so you might have some issues with any new electronics and devices you buy during this time. Just keep receipts and warranties in place!

Also, this can be a good time to get a good deal on electronics, not just because of the Holidays but due to Mercury being in Retro, just be careful Mercury is the trickster of the Zodiac and you must keep your wits about you if don’t want to get taken!

Traveling during a Mercury in Retrograde phase isn’t ideal and coupled with it being the Holiday Season doesn’t make it any better! So expect travel delays, this is normal at this time. Try to not be inflexible, roll with it and come up with backup plans ahead of time, it could seriously help you make this time saner so you can enjoy your holiday.

This also means the weather will get a little crazy, which has already begun since Mercury went into its Retro cycle last week, with 10 inches of snow in Georgia to the fires in California. Packages and mail may get delayed, so get your stuff out early just in case. Do not wait till the last minute this Holiday Season, because some deliveries will be slowed down and some companies will even cancel out orders due to being so overwhelmed by all this energy, especially the week before Christmas.

Hang in there folks and keep your mind and hearts open.

Happy Holidays
