Here we go again! Those two dreaded words are once again upon us, as “Mercury Retrograde” starts on June 18th and runs through July 12th!
Mercury Retrograde is usually quite annoying to most people as it causes communication and technology breakdowns, and it can bring delays with travel and shipments. However, this isn’t one of my normal anti-Mercury Retrograde write-ups, as this particular backward cycle of Mercury can likely be somewhat of a good influence as well. I know it’s an interesting turn of events! But rather than just being mischievous the trickster planet, Mercury might bring in some luck for some folks, as it makes a strong connection to the star, Sirius! So even as annoying as Mercury Retrograde can be at least this time around it can bring some success and wealth as well.
This Mercury in Retrograde is in the sign of Cancer, (June 21st-July 22nd) so it does tend to affect those with Cancer astrological placements in their personal “Natal Astrology Charts” a bit more strong, but it runs much deeper than that and affects all of us no matter what Signs we have.
Now there will also be challenges with this Mercury in Retrograde cycle as it’s aspecting the Eclipse on June 21st. The first part of the actual Retrograde cycle starts on the 18th can be bumpy folks, with travel issues that include driving or flying especially. There will be delays and cancellations of all kinds in all situations. And computer and online problems that affect both personal and business can be a really big issue this go around.
Three Phases of Mercury’s Retrograde cycle:
June 2 to 18 – Pre-Shadow period before Mercury goes Retrograde, as it slows down
During this Shadow phase, you get a sample of what part of your life this particular Mercury Retrograde will affect
June 18 to July 12 – Is the Actual Retrograde Phase
During the actual Retrograde phase, we deal mainly with miscommunications and annoying technical glitches, this time I think we’ll see a whole lot of folks get visited from both friends and lovers from their past, as Cancer’s ruling planet is the Moon and this brings up our past experiences to review and helps us tap into our unconscious mind.
July 12 to 26 – The after Shadow phase that lasts until Mercury leaves Retrograde.
The after Shadow period is when things get wonky again at first, as we slowly get back to normal, at least we start to feel like we are mentally moving forward again and eventually back to some kind of normalcy.
There are certain things we should be doing during a Mercury Retrogrades cycle, like starting something over or finishing up projects we’ve already started. Remember Mercury represents the mind and how we perceive information, so when in Retrograde it is a time to go back over things and reassess our lives. We should revise plans and personal goals perhaps, revisit anything that needs to be worked on, reconnect with loved ones, and business contacts, and redo just about anything if it helps, and usually, it does during this time. Refresh your life by doing things over again, and ask lots of questions. Otherwise, Mercury can be one giant headache for ya, especially if you try to push forward with brand-new plans, it just doesn’t usually work out so well.
One of the best things you can do during any Mercury Retrograde cycle is to write things down, take notes, and do anything you can to remember, taking these simple actions can make this whole Mercury in Retrograde experience so much easier to get through and navigate. These little mistakes and going back and doing things over can lead to it being a time of growth and personal development.
Mercury in Rx like all Retrograde planets, as is happening for a reason. This isn’t some new Astrological fad! Planets have always gone into Retrograde cycles and will continue to appear to move backward in the future every year. So every once in a while we get a chance to pause or stop and take a break from our overloaded plugged-in lives. This is the time to review your life and the paths you’re on. What this Mercury in Rx cycle does is help us to breathe, be still, relax, and review. The main thing to understand as this cycles energy takes hold is that it’s a time to review your life and redo anything that needs to be done. It is time to re-search, re-think, re-visit, re-connect, and to get re-organized.
Here’s a basic list of Do’s and Don’t that can help you get through this rather confusing time. Make sure to share this Blog with others so they can be enlightened and understand all about Mercury Retrograde time.
What Not To Do duringMercury in Retrograde:
– Don’t start brand new projects
– Do not get into arguments, avoid critical folks, and tense people or situations.
– Do Not Sign Contracts or New Agreements
– Avoid Travel
– Do Not take misunderstandings personally. Our communication is foggy and cloudy.
What To Do duringMercury in Retrograde:
– Redo, Rework, Review, Research, so basically go over things again and wrap up old business and projects.
– Double Check the Facts and any info gathered.
– Re-visit anything that needs fixing or even if you have a question.
– Re-connect with folks that matter if you’ve had issues or not.
– Backup Computers and data that needs saved, it’s best to do this during the Shadow Phases.
– Re-organize your daily routines.
– Reflect and practice spiritual and energy work.
– Release what’s been holding you back or blocking you, let go of what no longer is working in your life, especially in your intimate relationships.
With Mercury in Retrograde cycles, we just have to be prepared is all, and it’s important to remember during this particular Mercury in Rx phase to do whatever it takes to REMEMBER things. These cycles are not meant to be as aggravating as they seem to be. In a perfect world, if we were to just take some time off from our everyday routines, (like we have been forced to do with COVID going around) it would be a much easier time to navigate. However, if you choose to go against this cycle’s natural flow you will probably get stressed out by something. It is a time to pause and reflect, as this helps us gain new perspectives and maybe realize something we had missed before. This cycle gives us the opportunity to fix things and get them right or the way we want them. Get prepared and try to do something to keep your mind busy during this Mercury in Retrograde cycle, it can help you get through it must more quickly.
Have a safe and easy going Mercury in Retro time folks, ~Ruby
Rubys Astro Readings 🌟 First Part of June Astro Update For All Zodiac Signs 💫
There is so much going on in the world right now, I honestly didn’t have time to write all of June’s Astro Updates. But here is some info about the first half of the month, especially during the first week. ~Ruby
The first half of June 2020 can be a bit confusing, as underlying tensions seem to be coming out to be dealt with. Even though around the 3rd we could have some lovely things to say with the Sun/Venus Conjunction, a rather tense aspect when the Sun squares heated up Mars in Pisces can bring up and out the truth in our relationships, and that might not be so pretty. But at least we won’t have a problem being honest with each other.
The Sun conjuncts Venus from the 3rd to the 5th, and this might just be a welcome reprieve from all the hostility and anger of the past week. It won’t last too long folks due to the Full Moon energies and all the other cosmic connections underway. But we might just be able to find some light at the end of the tunnel, as our inner light gets to shine once again and take over the darkness. Use this time to find some inner peace within and hold onto that feeling, and hold onto that energy for as long as you possibly can!
The Full Moon in Sagittarius is also a Lunar Eclipse on the 5th, and this means it’s truth-telling time. So if you’ve got secrets you may want to come clean now before this energy hits. When the Full Moon gets into an intense square with both warlike Mars and delusional Neptune, our discussions may get too real, and our fantasies are called out for the illusions they are. It’s a time when mistakes are pointed out, and some folks may not be able to handle it. When Mercury forms a tense square to wounded healer Chiron at the same time self-doubt can kick in, and we can lose our confidence. During this time, it’s best to not believe everything you hear, read, or think. Depression may also set in, so make sure to keep communicating the way the Sun in Gemini intended, and talk to someone about your sadness.
From June 1st through the 10th, tensions will be high, especially when the Sun forms a tense square to Mars on June 6th. These influences are a test and we can be challenged by competitors and enemies. Basically, if things don’t calm down with the violence associated with the protests, a lot of people will feel like taking matters into their own hands and decide to come out and join the crowds, while hoping that things will calm back down. People are more than ready to take a stand now, but not allow their towns or businesses to be destroyed at the same time. The National Guard might just get called in, but only if it goes this far. The aspect coming together on June 6th will be felt during the first week of June and it is a build of angry energy. It could be from the lockdown due to the Virus, and the anger folks are carrying around from the events in Minneapolis last week. If you feel resentful or angry within yourself, try to do what you can peacefully, it’s ok to go to a March but don’t destroy property. Do not allow this rage to consume you. If we are not at ease within ourselves often the body will take on disease of some kind, so remember that.
As Mars transits through the sign of Pisces axnd the Sun in Gemini, there can be more lies, deceptions, and betrayal that comes out. Things are not what they seem and the media is not being completely honest on what they are reporting, go figure! There is a lot more happening behind the scenes with this crisis in the US. So there is more to the story! Life will not be peaceful during this time, so it’s important to find that space of peace within yourself during these times. There is a lot of emotional unrest with the planet of War, Mars being in the sign of Pisces the sign of healing over the next week.
On June 11th the Sun squares foggy Neptune, and motivated Mars is conjunct Neptune a few days later. This energy can make us feel like escaping from our normal routines, and doing something new or different. Otherwise, we can feel helpless and anxious. So don’t be discouraged if things don’t turn out exactly as you might have liked. Take a break and get away for a little while.
On June 18th, mental Mercury in Cancer (it has been slowing down and getting ready) as it goes into its Retrograde phase. So except for Mars, all the personal planets will appear to be moving backward through the Zodiac and be in their Retrograde phases. It is a good time to think about all that has happened over the last few months because my goodness has there been a lot! This is a time to go within yourselves and review all that you have been through and feeling. Work on healing yourselves and your hearts.
For All Zodiac Signs Happy Birthday to all you Bulls!
How does this energy affect you?
While the Sun is in the sign of Taurus we may feel more sensual, receptive and determined. This shift causes the energies to slow down. The energy of this sign can help us to be more practical, grounded, and steady, which overall can be a great help with so many other heavy-hitting cosmic energies changing things up in 2020!
With the shift of the Sun in Taurus we get to take a moment and simply breathe. And we get to take a deeper look at tree he events unfolding around us, then we can look at complicated situations with some good old-fashioned common sense.
Taurus energy wants us to learn how to defend ourselves and resist things, but also how to love in a deeper, sensual, and more intimate way, and 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 time.
Over the next month, we tend to rely on what’s always worked in the past, and what’s tried and true. But we also need to move forward with the times. This influence is about integrating tradition with evolution in our lives. One thing about Taurus energy is we feel a stronger need to be more comfortable than usual. Take some time to set up space to Zen out, get all comfy and cozy for the next month and make sure you have somewhere safe to hang out. This cycle shows us what stability and substance can look like. We seem to be drawn to more practical matters now, so there’s not a whole lot of risk-taking going on.
However, mental Mercury is still in the sign of Aries, during this time, which is more motivating, as it keeps our minds working at a faster pace. The Sun in Taurus and Mercury in Aries might be a great mix of energies. It can give us the extra boost of energy and confidence we need, but also some reasoning skills so we don’t push too much. Either way with Mercury in Aries we have more get up and go, especially physically.
Under the Sun in Taurus, we have an opportunity to explore what we truly value and who we can depend on. And bring in this a Pandemic we’ve already had some time to do a little research. So we can pay more attention to what really matters in the material world, but sync our spirituality into it. This can be a lovely combination to work on balancing our Spirit, Mind, and Body.
As the Sun moves through this sign, we get to experience what it’s like to manifest our physical reality, as the seeds we plant take root. Our determination and need for security are quite strong during this time. Taurus energy is about loyalty, being comfortable, and using what’s been tried and true in the past, as we like sticking to what’s familiar. But the Mercury in Aries energy will help us look for new beginnings as well from time to time. We value the folks who have stayed by our side in good and bad times and will honor them more so during this time.
As the Sun moves through the sign of the bull, we get the opportunity to see the beauty in life. We’re more focused on the simple pleasures in life and how to feed the senses. Our senses are aroused and highly activated, so we can have a newfound appreciation for things like food, sex, music and entertainment, beauty, and anything that feels pleasurable! Being more repetitive and open to the things that make us feel fulfilled and alive can help us better appreciate life and the world. 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 won’t feel as difficult under this energy, so staying in will actually be more welcoming.
Enjoy all the beautiful things life has to offer while the Sun is in Taurus. Discover something beautiful about your life, find a new appreciation for those who love you.
The shadow side of Taurus energy 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 get out of our own way long enough and be willing to hear other people’s ideas and opinions.
While the Sun is in Taurus we should be making plans and setting goals that are built to last for the long-term. Put away something for a rainy day and for your future endeavors. This is not a good time to make life-altering decisions. Just plan for now, and maybe give it until the end of May to make your next big move. That’s when the energies will be a bit less dramatic anyway in 2020.
The Goddess of Love herself, Venus is shifting into the first sign of the Zodiac, Aries on Feb 7th.
The planet Venus rules over our love lives, but it also has a strong effect on how we love others period. This can be with family, friends, co-workers, and members of our community even. It also happens to have a lot of influence over our finances and anything involving our money.
It’s important to be thicker skinned under Venus in Aries, especially in our relationships and how we relate to others. There is no sugar-coating things under Venus in the fiery sign of Aries, and our words can sting. But Aries energy isn’t necessarily about being petty or mean. It’s just time to lay your cards on the table and say things like they are, or at least the way you see them. Our desires are strong, and we can express ourselves in such a way that it’s more spontaneous, enthusiastic, and direct! And if someone pisses you off, you can almost bet you’re going to make sure they hear about it! We don’t hold much back in our relationships during this time.
Venus in the sign of fast-moving Aries, can bring fresh new energy into our love life and around our finances. This cycle brings love in rather quickly, so relationships both new and old are more direct and spontaneous. This can have us acting more impulsive, passionate, extroverted, and bold in our romantic adventures. There’s a stronger desire for constant change in both our romantic and social lives. But we can make friends more easily and are quite fond of receiving and giving love and admiration. We can feel more motivated, and enthusiastic, and be a source of inspiration to lovers, partners, good friends, or co-workers.
While we are under the Venus in Aries influence we don’t worry about the past or bother looking back, instead, it’s a time to move forward. “Carpe Diem” is our motto for now, which means “Seize the day” while Venus is in Aries. As every day is new and full of opportunities, so every moment matters.
You can be very easily influenced by the opposite sex now, (or by someone more masculine than yourself) as it’s a brand new day, this is an opportunity to initiate something. The gushy, mushy kind of stuff is not so appealing during this time, and we don’t want to deal with apologies, as we simply enjoy the chase and conquest! But Aries energy is also about emotional security, so we are looking for longstanding relationships and love that’s going to last, but it has to feel new and fresh, or we can get bored quite easily and end up moving on to someone else.
Under this fiery influence, we are more interested in the hunt intuitively and naturally, especially when it comes to matters of the heart. Since we can feel more bold, courageous, aggressive, impulsive, and impatient in love, so our love life heats up and they can get rather interesting.
Some of you might feel bold when communicating, but more reserved about your deeper feelings or emotions. If you’re feeling badly or insecure you can get aggressive and downright mean, especially if someone isn’t expressing love back, or doesn’t recognize that you’re trying. This influence effects our way of thinking as well, and we can be much more strategic, so we can be quite cunning when it comes to matters of the heart or in financial dealings.
If you are already in a long-term relationship you can use this fiery energy to light some passions back into your relationship. If you’re single get ready, lots of people will hookup or have sexual relations, (after all Aries energy is ruled by Mars, the planet that rules over sexual activity) but the fires don’t burn forever and your new hookup can sizzle out fast!
It’s a time to make sure things keep moving forward, especially if you want some sort of new commitment in love or money. But also pay attention to what will happen in the long-term in new relationships, unless you are just looking for a hookup! Then have fun!
It’s a good time to enjoy the finer things in life, you can show off a little now, so indulge in luxury and extravagance, we can have an easy come, easy go kind of attitude when it comes to money and all things financial.
Under the Aries energy, we are much more direct and blunt, but this involves Venus, so it’s going to come out more so in our relationships, but remember words can sting. Desires are strong and expressed more spontaneously and enthusiastically. Try to avoid throwing temper tantrums with your nearest and dearest, and watch yourself for being too harsh or coarse with those you love.
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

We are in “Eclipse Season”, and a Lunar Eclipse occurs on January 10th, 2020.
Eclipses of the Sun and the Moon tend to shake things up and bring in powerful changes. Sometimes the changes that take place during an Eclipse may not be what you’d like or expect, but before you make any decisions or judgments wait for things to settle down first and after the Lunar Eclipse occurs and see how you feel.
Many of you are trying to get too much done right now, and without much time, money, or energy. And you’ve depleted your energy and it’s low, so don’t overdo anything as we enter into “Eclipse Season.” There might be something that comes up during the Eclipses that you will have to pay extra close attention too, so you’ll need the extra time. So again I repeat don’t overdo anything right now! And during this particular Eclipse Season lots of folks are getting sick or falling ill. Keep your immune system strong.
Everyone feels the Eclipses on some level, if they understand it or not. For some folks, it may not affect them directly but more indirectly, where you have to help the other people in your life because they’re having a hard time, so you could end up spending this “Eclipse Season” lending a helping hand. And then the rest of us could have issues or challenges we have to work through, and hopefully, the favor is returned and we get a little help from our friends when we are down.
This Lunar Eclipse coming together in January can reveal something that’s been hidden or kept secret. It can be a personal issue that you’ve been trying to hide, but also global issues have already started to come out. If for whatever reason you’re trying to hide something, or keep secrets be careful because Full Moon’s are truth-telling time and a Lunar Eclipse just amplifies that energy even more, so basically whatever is being hidden could come out this week! As these Eclipses come together the Universe sends out very subtle or sometimes strong messages, and these messages can be a reality check of some kind. So be on the lookout in the next week or so for signs, symbols, and dreams about what is coming to light.
Want to know the best way to handle “Eclipse Season”, here are some helpful hints.
*Get some Rest, The body takes a lot of energy on during an Eclipse, it transforms us on a deep cellular level which means our DNA moves around, and as we begin to download information from the Eclipses (mostly unconscious) this energy can be exhausting for all of us.
*Don’t allow yourself to get involved in others drama, mind your business. The lunar activity can make folks feel pretty crazy anyway, so Eclipses really can cause some of us to get ramped up and become frustrated, and anxiety-ridden. Then, in turn, you can take out your fears on everyone else. Stay away from the negativity period! We absorb the energies we continue to be around, good, bad, or indifferent.
*Nurture yourself during Eclipse Season. This is about taking care of your total well-being. You need to stay as balanced as possible because Eclipses can make us feel like we’re in an energetic rat race. With energy pushing and pulling on us.
*Meditate daily and get connected to your Spirit, Mind, and Body.. *Eat balanced meals and don’t grab junk in a hurry. Go organic and drink lots of extra water right now.
*Journal daily, it’s therapy, seriously just try it! Write about how your feeling and what you desire in life. This can also help you keep up with any signs or messages you might be seeing, and it may help you build a more personal relationship with the Universe.
*Exercise and burn off some steam, this will help you keep all that nervous energy under control, and it can help you stay balanced.
*Connect to Nature – get outdoors and take a walk daily, or perhaps go to the park, just do something that’s physically active.
*Play music and lift your mood, or something relaxing. Music is so good for the Soul. Make sure and stay away from sad or angry music or movies. The point is to raise your vibration and not bring it down.
*Wear Gem Stones of any kind that make you feel good, they will raise your vibration and can aid you. Stones tend to help us feel relaxed and calmer and keep you grounded. Learn more about the healing qualities of the Stones if you don’t know.
*Get away from all the negative media, because during Eclipse Season it’s always just full of more sad and tragic events happening in the world. Things happen during Eclipses, and as I said it shakes us up. While there can be some great stuff going on in the world as well, the news and social media seldom report it. We can get flooded with lower vibrational negative news and information. Eclipse Season has already begun, so unplug! Block negative media and other drama on Facebook and surround yourself with positive open-minded people, groups, and pages.
Remember Eclipses can be a good thing too, they can deliver messages from the Cosmos that we need to hear or see. Thisall can be extremely revealing, so we can make decisions that make our lives better in some way.
“Eclipse Season” started in December of 2019, with the Solar Eclipse in Capricorn. Now here in a just a short time the Lunar Eclipse occurs on January 10 in Cancer.

Happy New Year, Happy New Decade, what a wild ride it’s already been in the first few days of 2020!
We start this month off in what’s called an Astrological “Stellium” of planets, all in the sign of Capricorn, that actually started back in early December. This keeps us very aware and focused on our future plans and goals, so most of us are thinking about how we can rebuild certain parts of our lives.
A “Stellium” in Astrology is when there are three or more planets in the same Zodiac Sign at the same time. So this energy is highly concentrated and is a very powerful source of energy that helps us focus and manifest what we truly desire. Capricorn energy is known for being the manfestor and builder of the Zodiac! For the next three weeks, the Sun, Saturn, Jupiter, Pluto, and Mercury plus an Asteroid called Ceres, and the South Node Destiny Point of the Moon are all in the sign of Capricorn! Wow! That’s a lot of energy in the builder of the Zodiac.
This is a very powerful time to continue Setting Intentions with the Universe, as we are spiritually more aware and in tune, by clearing out old energies and bringing in new energies than we can see more clearly our future plans and goals. You can do this through things like meditation, journal-writing, exercise, and clearing out your spaces, especially here in the physical! Clean out a closet and watch what you manifest in your life. Get rid of the dust and clutter and see what kind of energies you open up in your life.
Ask the Universe to help you create your wishes, dreams, future plans and goals. The energy of all things Capricorn is being strongly activated at this time. It doesn’t matter what your Sun Sign is, as we all have Capricorn energy somewhere in our personal Astrology Birth Chart. And whatever area of your Chart this “Stellium” is traveling through currently is the part of your life you need to remain focused on the most.
If we work with the old wise ways of manifesting, we can boost our skills and develop things. Since we are talking about Capricorn’s energy as a whole and not just the Sun Sign, we have to look at Capricorn’s ruling planet, which is Saturn, and currently, Saturn is actually transiting the sign of Capricorn for the next 11 months! Also, lucky Jupiter is in Capricorn for the same amount of time. And mental Mercury will be in Capricorn until mid-January. Under these very powerful energies, we just need to focus our attention on one area of our life that we want to see something new or different happen. Try to only pick one thing over these next few weeks and concentrate on achieving that goal. If you get all scattered and try to work on a bunch of major things right now, it probably won’t work out for the best. We’ve only got a few weeks to work on something that can change our life for the better. This is a powerful trio of Cosmic energies to help you manifest something amazing in your life.
January 2020 Monthly Forecast
January 3rd: Mars in Sagittarius
When this energetic, feisty planet enters the sign of adventure and travel, we are more than ready to be done with old routines and schedules. There is a whole world out there to explore, it’s just waiting for us to go discover it, so make sure during Mars’ run through Sagittarius you get out of the house, and go out of your neighborhood, go explore and do something, the possibilities can be amazing during this time. Under the sign of Sagittarius, we are more concerned with things like philosophy, religion, morals, ethics, and anything that helps us feel optimistic again. Our faith can be restored during this time. We can become over-enthusiastic supporters and advocates, or zealous crusaders. When you think or share your beliefs allow your inner philosopher to guide the way. Mars runs through the sign of Sagittarius through February 16th
January 7: Mars inconjuncts Uranus
Ideally, our lives would run smoothly if everything went well all the time. But that’s not going to ever happen, as the planets who influence us are never in perfect harmony. Don’t let this energy throw you off when something or someone forces a change in your plans. This is exactly what can happen when the action planet meets up with unpredictable Uranus. The best thing you can do is to pay attention to what other people want and change your expectations of exactly how things should go. The more flexible you are the easier it will be to adapt to the changing circumstances we all are going through.
January 8: Jupiter conjuncts South Node
There can be certain influential or wise important people who show up in your life. They seem to have a strong sense between right and wrong, and a healthy moral ethic. But be careful this also can bring in someone with a very larger than life attitude who seems to know a lot, but it’s not a good thing. Think about setting your own personal path and focus on your goals. Think about what’s worth going after. What’s your future look like through your visions? Who or what is guiding you. The more you stay grounded in your own life the better decisions you will make. Do things your way! Make sure before you trust anyone and what they have to say make sure to do your own research and make them know what in the hell they’re talking about folks! Don’t just take anyone’s word for it.
January 9: Sun conjuncts Mercury
This conjunction is in the sign of more serious Capricorn, so we can feel quite practical during this time. This is an ideal time to review your ideas and plans as you figure out which ones make sense. The time where we start to see the benefits that have come from past conversations, agreements, and ideas we’ve had over the last few months. You know how I can get the attention you deserve for any opinions or ideas that you’ve had, this will help move you forward. As all astrological conjunctions mark a beginning, this is a good time to make new plans with new ideas.
January 10: Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse in Cancer
The Moon in Cancer is opposing the Sun in more earthly Capricorn. Lunar Eclipses are basically a stronger more intense Full Moon. This is an extremely emotional time that not only raises the ocean tide, but the water within our own bodies, so basically it’s high tide emotionally as well. Between the Lunar Eclipse and the next New Moon, make changes that make you feel more secure, comfortable, and safe. There can be a strong urge to focus more so on your career and financial endeavors, but it’s important to be paying more attention to your family and personal needs at this time.
January 10: Uranus goes Direct from Retrograde
The planet of revolution, change, and divine messages (epiphanies and little Ah-ha moments) shifts directions on this day, so we should expect the unexpected! Our freedom and independence are more important than ever now in the world and on a personal level. People need space to breathe and move around. Don’t allow fear of the unknown to stop you from taking your most important ideas and goals and moving forward with them. Even though we have no idea where things are headed, we must have faith in something better. Be ready to adapt to changes as they come now.
January 12: Mercury conjuncts Saturn and Pluto.
This is intense conjunction energy that is a bit complicated. With Pluto in the mix are conversations can certainly be intense. However, with somber Saturn involved as well will make it very important that you get your facts straight. People are already working up to this energy now, you can see its evidence in our intense conversations as people have a strong point of view and opinions. Be aware of what you are saying and expressing during this time. Our words no matter how communicated have immense power and can either transform others more positively or they can cut people deeply! It’s important to know when to shut your mouth and when to speak up! Sometimes what you have to say doesn’t help matters.
January 12: Saturn conjuncts Pluto **
This is the big conjunction we’ve been waiting for, and already dealing with known as the “Great Shift”. When the father of the Zodiac meets up with powerful Pluto in the middle of Eclipse Season, and peaks right around the Full Moon! The Universe means business, this energy has already been rocking our world. This energy is supercharged up and intense. It serves as a reminder to let go of old ideas about the way the world is and how things should work. The old outdated rules just don’t apply to our lives anymore, so quit trying to live your life by them. This is a time for clearing out space and old energies. And remember conjunctions start new beginnings, so you may have to let something go first to get things moving. Out with old and in with the new as they say! This is a time of transformation and rebuilding what’s been torn down over the last ten years. It’s time for the rules to be changed, as they should reflect the world we live in now. These two are both Outer Planets, and they tend to affect things globally, but also each of us personally. Now, with the planets that represent authority and power having a conversation you should be asking yourself some questions. How can you position yourself in this changing world?
Saturn and Pluto together represent strong concentrated serious energy. Make sure you are directing it in the right direction, don’t just sit around and hide from this energy. It’s time to step up and do what it takes now. Knowing where the Saturn/Pluto Conjunction is in your personal Astrology Birth Chart can help you understand more clearly what part of your life you should be building on now, so where to invest your time and energy, and where to let go. Best of luck, this can be seriously disturbing at times, but it can help you transform your life.
January 13: Sun conjuncts Pluto and Saturn
You have a lot of authority, power, and energy at your disposal. Let go of what’s broken or not working unless it can be transformed into a new and better version. Align yourself with those who have clout and the ability to help you. You have a power base and if you stand in it, you will achieve your goals.
January 13: Venus enters Pisces
The planet of love and relationships transits through the poetic sign of Pisces, this can help us bring a little romance back into our life. This influence opens our hearts and helps us see the beauty in other people, as we tend to accept other people’s flaws, and love them for who they are. This is a perfect time to meet someone new or to strengthen the spiritual bond of an existing relationship. Take some time to hang with the object of your affection. This is a time when we feel the ones we love and words are not needed. This beautiful transit runs through February 7.
January 16: Mercury enters Aquarius
Mental Mercury needed a change of pace seriously and it enters into more free-spirited Aquarius, this helps give us a new point of view. And we can work at developing our original creative ideas. It’s a good time to work at leaving old ways of thinking behind. You can really help yourself by looking to the future, and by being inventive and think outside the box. Also knowing where Mercury is currently traveling through in your Astro Birth Chart can help you apply those new, bright ideas to the right part of your life. Mercury is in Aquarius until February 3.
January 20: Sun enters Aquarius
Over the last year, we have been out through lots of changes. When the Sun leaves ambitious Capricorn and enters independent Aquarius, our minds naturally focus on our future goals and we can network, meet new and interesting people, and embrace any new ideas we get now. It’s time to invest in your life and goals and take what life has to offer. Trying to meet goals alone might now be so easy, as Aquarius is the sign of “Teamwork”, so join up with like-minded people during the Sun’s run through Aquarius, it’s a good discover and connect with your community.
January 23: Sun squares Uranus
This influence can make you feel quite restless, and you might start to notice its effects earlier on. If might be time to make some changes to your life, and the year 2020 is all about making major changes. When the Sun meets unpredictable Uranus, the planet of independence, it’s time to shake things up. It’s a good time to get out of any old routines that aren’t working for you. Get out of that rut, and don’t suppress the natural healthy desires you might be having for change. Instead, follow your inner guidance and see where it takes you.
January 26: Venus squares Mars
Sometimes the people we like aren’t necessarily the ones we desire. And sometimes the people who seem intriguing are not good for you. When the Cosmic Lovers get into a tense square like this we can bet our relationships can be a bit shaky for a few days. This can bring tension to both romantic and business relationships. You may just have to agree to disagree if you can. Also, there can be some shady characters running around who seem interesting and knowledgeable. But don’t trust false guru’s and take everyone at face value. Be mindful during this time about how you relate to others.
January 27: Venus conjuncts Neptune
Loving Venus is all about our personal love life but also our relationship to money. Neptune more about universal love. This influence opens our heart and soul, as we can see the inner beauty in the least expected places. Take this dreamy energy and run with it, spend some time with the ones you love and do things that make you happy. This can be a very lucky few days for some of you.
January 28: Mars squares Neptune
With the planet of action and control, Mars in a tense connection to the foggy side of Neptune, things definitely may not be what they appear to be. And with Mars in go get em Sagittarius we can be in a big old hurry anyway, but this energy can take you into unfamiliar territory, especially with Neptune being in its own sign of Pisces right now. This is a time of confusion, and it can have you questioning what you are doing for a few days. Try to avoid being straightforward, and pay attention to what you feel when your around other people, and before making any important decisions.

The Winter Solstice occurs on December 21st, 2019 in the late evening time in the United States when the Sun leaves the sign of Sagittarius and enters the sign of Capricorn, where it remains through Jan 20, 2020.
This also officially starts “Capricorn Season.” Happy Birthday to all my Capricorn folks!
This year’s Winter Solstice is soon followed by a Solar Eclipse on December 26th. This Eclipse can actually be quite interesting as it is very close proximity to lucky Jupiter! And giant Jupiter and surprising Uranus make a fabulous trine connection, this brings up all sorts of interesting things like inventions and big grand ideas as it opens new paths. Innovation is in the air, so we can go out on new exciting adventures. I hope you all get to celebrate this magical season full of wonder and excitement.
All of these Cosmic connections make for some pretty amazing energies to be honest! These planetary combinations bring in an extra dose of love, happiness, and good fortune for all of us to share. Which is perfect timing for the Holidays! But there also might be some unexpected twists and turns, so just hang on for the ride.
The Sun in Capricorn is a time to get motivated and take care of business. We are being reminded by the Cosmos to respect the physical world and the laws of nature under this influence. There can be a deeper appreciation for structure and order. Our motivation comes from a need to be responsible, as our ambitions and respect for law and order our strong. And clear boundaries are drawn out and simple rules are followed, which helps us feel more in control of ourselves and our lives. Simple everyday tasks and responsibilities are easily completed and taken more seriously.
During this cycle, we can start working on our long-term goals, as we can manifest some stability for our future. Under the Sun in Capricorn, we can feel quite satisfied if we get tasks and work completed because this gives us a stronger sense of accomplishment As we look for tangible results, and start to realize what will last and what won’t. We’re much more comfortable working in an already established situation, where we know our boundaries during Capricorn Season.
Weekend Update Dec 21 & 22
The Moon shifts into the sign of Scorpio for a few days which creates a more passionate, intense energy. This can help us get motivated to gr our last-minute holiday preparations together. However, if we fall into our emotions for whatever reason we can get lost in them and become obsessed with a need to analyze ourselves and others. This is a time that the truth tends to come out, so think about what you’re saying before you speak!
This is an amazing opportunity to open up to healing yourself and others through your spiritual heart. (That place within yourself that feels love.)
Venus the planet of love aligns with wounded healer/teacher Chiron. There may be challenges or struggles as values and tastes clash, or we can feel torn between wanting closeness and needing our freedom. We can get lost quickly, because we can be quite impulsive if we feel attracted to someone. There’s a deeper pull towards buying material things, (Which is not so good in this day and age with the Holidays coming up! ) Watch your wallets folks, you can seriously go overboard. Some of you will be able to really focus on your relationships and healing. But we can feel quite moody and our emotions can be up and down, this can lead to new commitments.
Over the weekend things can get a bit intense when the planet of love, Venus squares the planet of change and rebellion, Uranus. This can cause unexpected upsets and arguments especially in our close personal relationships with friends and family. So watch yourself at any family gatherings over the weekend, things can get testy. If you know there will be someone you will see that you don’t like then you may want to skip the event. But if you think it will be cool, then just stay aware and if any drama starts up to be ready to get out of there if need be.
Now the good news is the planet Mars which motivates us is in a rather lucky aspect, this can give us a major boost of energy to get things done. This influence can have us feeling strong and vital, and it can motivate us to finish whatever we start. It can actually be a successful day if you can keep things calm.
Here’s to a magical Winter Season, may you be healthy and abundant. Be Blessed ~Ruby

December Astro Forecast
December 2 – Jupiter enters Capricorn Jupiter joins up with the heavy-hitting planets Saturn and Pluto in ambitious Capricorn. It’s time to pay attention to the areas of your life that you want to build a solid foundation on, so focus on what you want to achieve in the coming New Year. You can meet people who help you get ahead in one way or another. Just remember any hard work you do now will be rewarded. Even though we can receive some much needed help, with so many planets in the sign of Capricorn, there can be challenges as well. Especially, when those who are of authority or who are in charge band together with their combined powers. To rise above these tests and challenges, and meet your goals, you will need to stay focused and concentrate. Keep things practical, and be savvy and strategic, this is not the time to be impulsive or to just wing it!
December 3 – Venus sextiles Mars Venus the Goddess of Love and relationships is also in the sign of, you guessed it, Capricorn. Her Cosmic Lover Mars, the planet of aggression, action, and desire is actually in Scorpio right now, and together these two make a powerful couple. This can be a beneficial influence that helps you meet new people romantically. It can help those of you who are already involved in a committed relationship to strengthen the bonds you have already built.
December 8 – Sun squares Neptune Neptune is the planet that rules over your dreams, fantasies, imagination, and spirituality. With the Sun shining its energy on Neptune, things can feel rather confusing and some of you may feel down and out. But this can be an amazing time to escape your busy life, and get rid of all the distractions, and unplug, or just relax. Using your mind and logic won’t help you find the answers, instead, try a little creativity and some daydreaming perhaps. Don’t worry, because even if you don’t know where you are going or exactly what you want. All of us need some downtime to replenish our energies, so find a place of peace and relaxation, and take a moment to breathe and simply be. The rest of the world will just have to wait.
December 9 – Mercury enters Sagittarius Mercury is the planet of communication and expression. When it shifts into the more optimistic sign of Sagittarius are heads fill up with new ideas and we can enjoy fun conversations that may just help us learn better about how to reach our goals. Keep things practical and stay grounded, but express your enthusiasm and you might just succeed. Sagittarius energy demands truth, so all of us will appreciate a good honest discussion at this time. Just be careful not to overdo it, and share your whole life story, as giving to much of your business away can cause problems. This energy can have us telling way to much truth, and then we have to apologize for it later. If you can remember to use tact you won’t feel regretful later.
December 11 – Venus conjuncts Saturn Saturn is about taking responsibility as it holds us accountable. So when Venus connects to stern Saturn there can be challenges in your relationships. But you also can gain clarity about the people in your life, this can help you understand better what you want and don’t want.
December 12 – Full Moon in Gemini This Full Moon is handing out information and brings news that can make you doubt your current plans. This week is going to be moving very fast, and you might feel stressed out and overwhelmed! But it can also help open your eyes and see the truth about situations that you need to be done with. This is anxious energy, even more so than normal, so some folks can be extremely emotional and high strung, so whatever they are communicating can be illogical. Make no important decisions during this time! Take things nice and slow, and review all the info you have gathered. Once this Full Moon has passed you will be able to see the whole picture, and then you will know what you should do next.
December 13 – Venus conjuncts Pluto Venus rules over our relationships and Pluto is about the power and control we have. Conjunctions are often about new beginnings. But this influence can be about our projects, goals, or other people. You can feel powerful during this time, and your energy can run high. If you choose to let go of what’s broken or not working in your relationships, then it might just transform and come back together into something new and stronger. But this is strong powerful energy to grab ahold of, if you embrace it you may just be able to achieve your goals. Keep your heart open to the ones who love you back.
December 15 – Jupiter trines Uranus Jupiter is about expanding one’s horizons, it wants to help you improve your life. When it shifts into the sign of Capricorn our goals become our main focus. This energy can help you rebuild something in your life, into something different or even new. The world opens up to new possibilities, so it’s a good year to make long-term improvements. Keep your options open and be ready as opportunities show up. Other people are a valuable resource during this time, as they can help you at least begin your new journey.
December 19 – Mars sextiles Saturn The action planet Mars is in powerful Scorpio. As it makes this connection to stabilizing Saturn in ambitious Capricorn, all our hard work can finally pay off, as help comes from those of authority or positions of power. This helps us put the finishing touches on any projects or plans we have been working on for a while now. If you share your ideas and visions for your future plans and goals, you will probably get the help you need to realize them.
December 20 – Venus enters Aquarius Venus the planet of Love herself, enters the more emotionally detached sign of Aquarius. This is a very interesting influence because you can actually meet someone during this time to love that shares the same values and moral codes as you, but you also need your partner to be your friend under this energy. Since we tend to be more social during this time, it is easier to meet people at events (hello Holidays) as long as you participate in activities you enjoy. If you are already committed, this is a good time to work on strengthening the friendship you have with your nearest and dearest.
December 21 – Sun enters Capricorn The Sun enters the more practical sign of Capricorn and this marks the beginning of the Winter Solstice. This is a magical time, (all the Solstices are) but it’s best to take this time to get quiet and reflect on this past year, think about what you are grateful for. Now is the time of the year when we tend to hide out, the winter months are about staying out of the cold. But with so many other planets in the sign of Capricorn, we should be planning and preparing for 2020. Think about your dreams, goals, and plans and what you would like to accomplish. This is a fiercely ambitious influence that can help you get ahead if you work with its energies in the right way
December 24 – Sun trines Uranus When the radiant Sun shines on the divine messenger, Uranus, we can have way more energy and courage to do what we want, how we want! All you are required to do is go after your goals and take advantage of this influence. Look to your soul tribes and those who are of support. Make changes, and be open to adjustments and change up your plans if need be, make them stronger and better, as there are people around during this time that are willing to assist you.
December 26 – Solar Eclipse in Capricorn A powerful Solar Eclipse occurs on this day in the sign of ambitious Capricorn, as this influence can help you reconnect to the world around you. For most of us, the outer world is about our careers, for others, it is school or volunteer work that takes up most of your interactions. The Solar Eclipse occurs at the same time as the New Moon, this means it is an especially strong time for drama but it’s also a new beginning. This New Moon energy is all about achieving your goals, by taking step by step plans to reach them. It’s a good time to decide what you are going to take responsibility for and what you don’t. This is a time to take actions that help you make your life more secure, by accomplishing what is practical. Over the next few weeks while the light of the Moon slowly increases from this New Moon to a Full Moon, stay focused and put your time and energy into something you really want to see grow and build up to be strong, or make it about something that is really important to you. Staying consistent and focusing on the same goals over this two week period can bring amazing results, or at the very least put you on the right path towards achieving your goals. Everyone’s journey is different.
December 27 – Sun conjuncts Jupiter Every year, the Sun shines its light on optimistic Jupiter. This year, of course, it’s meeting up with the sign of practicality and security, Capricorn. Jupiter is all about its generosity as it expands the energy of the sign it is in, and it brings along helpers, guides, angels and whatever you can think of to help us build upon these Capricorn energies. This is a great time to work once again on your plans for your future, to reach goals that have to do with the long-term. This energy wants you to get real and stick to a plan that is in the here and now.
December 28: Mercury enters Capricorn When the planet of Communication enters the sign of practical Capricorn, we can learn what is working and what isn’t. Stay focused on your goals, but also get out and do some networking, especially with folks who have already done or accomplished what you hope to achieve. You can gain some valuable advice and they can lead you to meet the right people who can help you. All your hard work will be rewarded soon, so stay focused, and don’t give up.
Early in the morning Tuesday, Nov. 26th the New Moon comes together in adventurous Sagittarius, and we’re looking for something different, bigger, truthful, and honest. This is just one of those New Moons that are rare, the best one of 2019 in fact! The Sun and Moon are both in the more hopeful, optimistic sign of Sagittarius which makes this an extra powerful energy.
This New Moon is a fabulous one, full of great feeling vibes, as a rather interesting conjunction between lovely Venus and lucky Jupiter is also underway, so in fact, this New Moon can reactivate this amazing energy, and both mental Mercury and mystical Neptune just freshly out of their Retrograde cycles make a connection as well. This energy is fabulous for manifesting your hopes, dreams, and desires.
It’s a great time for Setting Intentions, (working with the energy of the Cosmos to ask for your dreams and desires, it’s a time for meditation, journal-keeping, visualization, and energy work.)
It’s also a good time to start new projects, especially if it involves travel or exploring new territory. However, Mercury is just coming out of Retrograde so things can still be a little bit confusing. It’s important to remember if you change your thoughts you literally change your reality, and the world around you, as we manifest from the inside out. This Sagittarian energy helps us take a look around and see things differently, and gain a fresh new perspective.
Now the darker side of this New Moon energy is that aggressive Mars is opposing rebellious Uranus at the same time. This can bring chaotic energy into the mix! There also can be more irritation, hostility, or unexpected changes. Anger can boil over and turn into rash actions, as silly temper tantrums can occur. You can feel more impulsive and have a total disregard for following the rules. You may even feel like it’s more important to break the rules just to be free from your responsibilities and obligations.
This energy is about taking action and moving forward, in our minds and by using our bodies. Physical movement can help us gain a new perspective on life, it helps bring clarity. Which many of us are needing this new energy to help us see clearly again, since we are just coming from out of the influences of both the Mercury and Neptune Retrograde cycles. This energy tends to lead us down new and different paths in life, and into new directions. Be mindful and ask the Universe for what you want, to ensure your heading down the right path towards your wishes and desires. Let this energy guide you.
The New Moon in Sagittarius helps us learn, grow, and expand our knowledge. This influence wants to show us how to have space within our own hearts that still respects old traditional ways of doing things. But it’s just as equally as important to not repeat history and struggle. So basically if something didn’t work out for you before in the past then it’s time to take a hint and try something new. It’s also important during this New Moon to work and practice showing yourself some compassion. Seriously, if you are reading this give yourself a BREAK!
Here are some good questions to think about and to be asking if you are going to “Set Intentions” with this New Moon.
Why are you here in this life now?
Where are you going in life?
What beliefs do you hold on to?
Which beliefs don’t work for you anymore?
What do you believe in now, and what do you know to be true?
What should you trust in, and where should you take a leap of faith at?
This New Moon holds the best energy to “Set Intentions” under, as its extremely powerful with the Sun and Moon both being in expansive Sagittarius! A New Moon can work powerful manifestation magic because the Moon is farthest from the Earth, and this opens up our imagination being farther away from this material plane of existence we live in. Anything you are thinking during this time is like planting seeds in a garden, just see your thoughts as the seeds, because once they are thought at the time of the New Moon they will grow, so be mindful of what you are thinking about during this New Moon time, and remember be careful for what you wish for as sometimes we need to really think before we ask.
You can start Setting Intentions at any time right now as we are under some amazingly lucky and life-changing energies.
This is an opportune time to ask the Universe to release whatever energies you need to let go or do away with, and also what doesn’t serve you anymore. The intentions that are set during a “Full Moon” will set you on the right path towards your hopes, wishes, and desires. This is the best time to do some energy work and release old pains and experiences that just have held you down or blocked you up! It’s time to get the old stuff out so the good stuff can come in!
During the Full Moon, we often experience an energy shift, so we must release the old energies to open things up, so we can get on the right path in life that helps us bring new and fresh energy.
What to Release under a Full Moon:
* Lower energies
* Negative patterns or bad habits
* Unhealthy situations or relationships
What to work on during the Full Moon:
*Letting go of both the people and situations that aren’t working anymore. And sometimes it is just an attitude or thought
*Clearing space for new energies to come in
*Being GRATEFUL for what you already have and what will be
This is the time when you should have a conversation with the Universe, (your higher power, Spirit Guides, Angels, God, etc!) whatever you believe in! Ask for the “Full Moon” to help illuminate the path that leads you towards your deepest desires. Simply ask to be led down a path towards your dreams and goals during your Setting Intentions rituals.
Patience is important! Remember to allow the time needed for the Moon to light the way, as it doesn’t always happen right away. But remember often this kind of work is magical and sometimes the things you want or ask for just show up! The “Full Moon” illuminates the truth and is symbolic for helping us see all that has been hidden, secret, tucked away, or suppressed. So ask for the truth to be revealed during this time.
What if you don’t know how to “Set Intentions” under the Full 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 your Full Moon work. You are simply calling in positive energies to work with. Burn some Sage or Incense and clear the energies. Think about where you’re going to perform your energy work. Because we create an energy vortex wherever we sit, sleep or do spiritual work! This is why you feel so comfy in your favorite chair, it feels safe and secure because you have created an energy vortex in that spot or space.
Step Two: Set the Atmosphere
Set the mood or your Full Moon Ritual. Burn some special incense, light some candles (colors do have different meanings) and play some mood or ambient music that helps you feel spiritually connected to the Universal energy you see tapping into. This can be a very different experience for everyone. Just makes sure to use whatever tools make you feel calm and peaceful. Because that’s the kind of energy you want to bring into your life.
Step Three: Let It Out
You’re going to need a notebook, paper, or a journal and something to write with. Writing pen to paper can be magical! It helps sync up the mind and body! Many try using their electronic devices but it just doesn’t seem to have the same effect. But to each their own. Then you write about what you’d like the Universe to bring in and remove. Simply write your deepest truths, wishes, and questions down. Think about what energies you’re trying to let go of and release. Write the letter like as if you were talking to an old friend. Think about what energy you’re trying to push out of your life, and what energy you’re trying to bring in, and be detailed but don’t go overboard.
It’s important to be patient and allow your work to take ahold during this process. And just know sometimes things take time. Often we just miss the signs and messages the Universe is sending because they are so subtle. They are not always so earth-shattering signs or A-ha moments that show up like a lightning bolt! More often it’s simply a bird landing in your backyard that has some sort of message or meaning for you, look up Animal Totems. You can hear a song on the radio that seems to have special meaning just for you, or see a movie and a scene seems to resonate with you on a deep personal level. Look for signs on everyday life and they just magically appear. If you pay attention and see everything as a sign, you will start to quickly pick up on what the Universe is trying to tell you! Messages and signs are always everywhere for us.
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 are choosing to come into your life? What changes would you like to see happen? What are you or should you be letting go of? How do you feel about what is happening in your life now? What do you want to release? Think about your long-term goals and your future, and what energy you’d like to create over the coming months.
Step Four: Visualize what you’re Creating
Now you’re going to visualize what you have written. First get comfortable again, preferably in the same place and read what you wrote very closely. Then close your eyes and take some 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 your actual pumping heart) but your spiritual heart or commonly referred to as the “Heart Chakra.” Next, Visualize yourself in what you’re trying to create or manifest. For example; see yourself living in that new home, falling in love with a Soul-Mate, driving that new car, (just smell that new car smell!) Don’t just think about what you want, but make sure and “FEEL IT,” as if you are really experiencing what you’re visualizing. If this makes you laugh, cry, scream, or whatever, then go with it.
Step Five: Gratitude
It’s very important to work on releasing what you don’t want in your life during a Full Moon, but it’s equally as important to not leave a VOID after you are done. So you need to fill that space from releasing with gratitude. Being grateful for what you have and around the work you are doing. When we focus on what it is we don’t have we are focusing on “Lack”, and that will only bring in the things we don’t want. Remember what we put our attention on is what will show up! So instead think and feel the things you are grateful for in your heart. Think about what you already have and be grateful for that. Then you will attract more of that can of energy, which in turn brings in some better feeling stuff! Don’t be held captive by your pains and past trauma, call in the good stuff folks. Yes, you deserve something good, wonderful and amazing!
Allow the Universe to show you what path to follow over the next month, and let the Full Moon light up the way! Hopefully, you’ll at the very least be put on a path towards what you truly desire, all while letting go of what you don’t need anymore, it’s truly miraculous.
Currently, there are five planets in the sign of Virgo, and surprising Uranus is in Taurus, and powerful Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn. So most of our ruling planets in our solar system are in Earth Signs. That’s a whole lot of one element. The Earth signs seem to help keep the energies more grounded, which is what we need desperately! Since we were under so much Leo season for a whole lot of the summer, and things got kind of crazy. So if you are an Earth Sun or Rising Sign, so Taurus, Capricorn, or Virgo this can be an especially good weekend for you.
As we move into September time the energies will be strongly focused on what’s called a T-Square, this tense energy will affect all of us for the next few weeks, but especially Sagittarius, Pisces, Gemini, and Virgo. The truth will be told and skeletons will come tumbling out out of the closet, so secrets and dirty little lies are revealed! There will be lots of chit chat, gossip, and rumors going around. We get to see the truth more clearly or what’s been hidden or even repressed. So if you are hiding something, it might be very difficult to keep it under wraps during this time. Secrets are hard to keep for now! And if you feel like someone is hiding something from you, pay extra close attention because those gut instincts are telling you that you probably are right. The truth will come out over the next several weeks. If you think you’ve got control of a situation or a person, and you are just manipulating them, you’d better think twice! The joke could be on you. They might already know what’s up as things are just more transparent during this time, and they could be leading you into believing they are clueless only to trip you up later.
Some of you may experience high anxiety this next week, but it will pass! Try to do something to offset your nerves during this time. Perhaps through meditation, journal-writing, or exercise. Time to Zen it out folks!
Now for some better news. This weekend is especially good for working on health issues that are bothering you, so if you want to change your diet or create a new healthy lifestyle regimen, then this is the time to do so. Over the next few days, there are some more positive energies to make long-term plans for business, vacations, and around real estate. As anything related to them can run more smoothly if you make the plans now, and why not be prepared when the energies are supporting you now, versus later on when it’s not the same. Remember Mercury goes into Retrograde again during October time.
If you have been thinking about heading in a new direction in your life, these planets are lining up perfectly to support you. And most of my clients are making major moves not only with their careers but also relationships, as many of them are shifting. So the majority seem to be affected at work in one way or another. But it’s a very positive time to do something different with your work as new paths are being made. Also if you’ve been feeling like you’re in a rut or stuck, this energy can help give you new ideas to get you out of it! Do some brainstorming and ask the Universe for help!
The New Moon in Virgo energy will last all weekend long. So if you haven’t had a chance to Set Intentions yet, you can still do so over the weekend. Simply make out a wish list of what you want and then read it over. Make sure to close your eyes when you’re done and really feel it. Over the next few weeks hopefully, by the time the Full Moon also in Virgo (imagine that lol), you can start to see some of your affirmations come true.

A Look Ahead The Sun Conjuncts Mars on September 2, this helps us use some of these new energies to get things done. Make sure to burn up some of the energy this influence puts out by maybe exercising or doing something physically active. Otherwise, this can cause us to lose sleep, and worry as anxiety levels can go high, and some folks will experience accidents and frustrations that can lead to erupting in anger. Now that you understand we have this strong build-up in energy coming, you can plan on offsetting it somehow by releasing it before it even comes in. Take advantage of this energy and get things accomplished, as you can be quite successful with any projects you choose to pour your energy into, channel your energy and stay focused, and move in more positive directions.
If we think back to what might have been happening on June of 2016, or July of 2017, that might clue you in on how this transit affects you. Take this next week under all this Virgo energy and make something happen, the overall energies will be much better next week for most of you.
