“Astro Weekend Update” End of August


For All Zodiac Signs:


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. For more help on just how to Set Intentions check out my New Moon Guide https://wp.me/p2dXxi-1oG


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.


Have a good one, blessings

“Setting Intentions” by the Full Moon!

A Full Moon will be coming together on eve of Thursday, August 15th if you live in the states, in the sign of Aquarius. This means we are supposed to balance out what we do for ourselves and others both, during this time. And it’s the best time of the month to work on releasing and for Setting your Full Moon Intentions or performing energy rituals.

Read on below to learn how!


This is an opportune time to ask the Universe to release whatever you need to let go, or do away with, and what doesn’t serve you. 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 releasing old pains and experiences that might have held you down or blocked you up! It’s time to get the old stuff out so the new energies can come in! 


During the Full Moon, we often experience an energy shift, so we must release the old energies to open up doorways so to speak, so the new energies can be allowed into our lives.


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

Have a conversation with the Universe, (your higher power, Spirit Guides, Angels, God, etc) whatever you call it! Ask for the “Full Moon” to help illuminate the path that leads you towards your deepest desires. Simply ask to be put on a path towards your dreams and goals.

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 sometimes magic happens and it does. The “Full Moon” illuminates the truth and is symbolic for seeing what’s been hidden, secret, tucked away, or suppressed. So ask for the truth to be revealed during this time. You just might be pleasantly surprised by what you learn.


Setting Intentions Guide

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 some positive energy 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 because it feels safe and secure. But also 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. This can be very different for everyone. Just makes sure to use whatever tools or colors that make you feel calm, happy, and peaceful.


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! Then you write what you’d like the Universe to bring in and remove both. Simply write your deepest truths, wishes, and questions down. Think about what energy 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. 

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 some sort of earth-shattering sign that shows up like a lightning bolt! More often it’s simply a bird landing in your backyard, or hearing a song on the radio that seems to have special meaning just for you. 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! 

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 kind 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 Moons light show you the way! Hopefully, at the very least you will be put on a path towards what you truly desire, all while letting go of what you don’t need in your life anymore. It truly is a miraculous process once you learn how to work with the Moon’s energies.


Happy Full Moon

July Super “Black” New Moon

For All Zodiac Signs


On Wednesday, July 31st and Thursday, August 1st for some time zones, a powerful Super “Black” New Moon in the sign of Leo occurs.


The NEW MOON times are as follows.

Pacific Time, July 31 at 8:11 PM
Eastern Time, July 31 at 11:11 PM
Central Time, July 31 at 10:11 PM
Mountain Time, July 31 at 9:11 PM


Under the “Black” New Moon energy we all have an opportunity to tap into this strong, potent, and courageous Leo the Lion energy.

  • A Black Moon is the name of a second New Moon in one calendar month. For some folks this New Moon will occur on August 1st, but it’s still a Black Moon since it occurs so close to the end of the month. 
  • This Black Moon is a Super Moon this time around, and so it’s literally closer to Earth, so the tides and anything made of water here on planet Earth is affected by the Moon’s vibrational pull at this time.

This is an excellent time to think about our future goals. And all the characteristics of the sign that Leo represents. With the Moon and Sun both in the sign of Leo, there’s a double dose of Lion’s energy to work with. And add that Mars and Venus are also in the sign of Leo currently, and we have an abundance of this energy to tap into. We should be focusing our energy into the following things like enhancing our love life, as this is a time for romance, but also creative endeavors, andrelationships with our lovers, family members, and children.


Some things we should be working on for the next month are as followed.

  • Building up our self-confidence and pride in ourselves.  
  • Taking pride in ourselves as unique individuals.
  • Assuming responsibility for ourselves and our lives.
  • Putting our heart into all that we do, by giving of ourselves and being more warm and generous with others.

We should meditate and focus on the characteristics of this strong-willed, loving Fire Sign of the Zodiac, as we all have the sign of Leo somewhere in our Personal Astrology “Birth Chart.” Try to incorporate the following positive traits of the Sign of Leo into your life and personality.

  • Being Proud and showing Pride. 
  • Generosity, helping others for no reason. 
  • Hospitable, receiving or treating guests or strangers warmly and generously.
  • Caring and Warm towards others. 
  • Authoritative
  • Active
  • Open your heart. 

Over the next several days we should be able to improve certain parts of our lives, as this is a time to awaken your “inner child” and discover ways to creatively express yourself. We have a golden opportunity under all this potent Leo energy to make some significant changes to our lives that can benefit us long after this New Moon occurs. 


With the Sun and Moon in Leo squaring Uranus during the New Moon it’s important to watch yourself for acting on impulse, or for abruptly making changes or just rebelling. The desire to change and improve things around our romantic and personal life is strong, and we can be quite creative when doing so. So this can be a time of courage as we are more than ready for progress. And with Jupiter in a beautiful Trine to this New Moon we can certainly make some magic happen, just pay attention and be cautious. 


As this New Moon occurs in Leo, we are being shown how to lead our own lives. Each of us possess the power to take control of our lives, so we must take charge in any situation and make important decisions that will help us in the future. Follow your intuition, as you know what’s best for you! No one knows you better than you! Take some time to yourself and get comfy with your pack, and do what makes your heart happy. Don’t beat yourself up about what you think you should be doing, and allow the truth of who you are to set you free. Trust yourself and be authentic in all you do. Leo energy rules over the heart of any matter, which makes this the best time to work with the energies that are ruled by the heart. 


Setting Intentions with the New Moon

I cannot stress enough just how important it is this time around to do the work and Set Intentions or make out Wish Lists under this powerful, rare Super “Black” New Moon. Especially, since we have just dealt with so much life-changing transformational energy. This is the time to make some new plans and set some goals to help you bring in new beginnings and rewards, don’t worry about how big or small they are as in two week from now when the next Full Moon occurs you should start to see something begin. Just simply write it all down, and read it and than FEEL IT! Then since Leo is a Fire Sign many like to burn up what they have written and send the energies off to the Universe in hopes it will bring us what we have asked for.

This New Moon also brings in the start of a New Lunar Cycle, and this new energy comes after a series of very potent and transformative Eclipses in July. This new energy can help us calm down and work with any emotional wounds, changes, or transformations the July Eclipses may have brought up. If the Eclipses brought about some sort of change in your life, than this “Black” New Moon can help you handle whatever issues you have been dealing with, so you can begin to finally think about what to do next from a whole new perspective, and hopefully find some solid solutions. 

Under the influence of the “Black” New Moon, the Cosmos will usher in New Beginnings that so many of us have been wishing and hoping for, however, we are going to have to take things slow at first and give these new energies time to work their mojo! Especially, with mental Mercury coming out of it’s Retrograde cycle on the same day as the New Moon.

New Moons bring things to us like “moths to a flame”, so if you are aware or woke it’s a great time to Set Intentions with the Universe, just by simply making out some Wish Lists. With all this new energy coming in now and the effects of Mercury’s Retrograde after-Shadow period, you may have to do some soul-searching first to think about what intentions you really want to set for your future plans. We all have changed a little if we understand it or not, but we can feel it! As the Eclipses have now raised our vibrational energies, and this transformation requires us to make sure our intentions line-up together with this new energy. 

This New Moon is a great inspiration, and this is the time to think about what we want to bring into our lives next. But we must be patient, take the time to allow ourselves to simply be, and tune our hearts into the energy of the Cosmos to match up with the energy of our true soul journey! Then will be better able to take this new energy and manifest what we truly desire next in to happen in our lives.  

Have an amazing, blessed New Moon, 
~Ruby 


Welcome to Leo Season

For All Zodiac Signs!

It’s officially Leo Season now, as the Sun moves into the sign of Leo from July 22 through August 23.


During this time, we tend to feel more proud, outgoing, and playful. The Sun in Leo has us seeking out ways to be individuals, as we are not as content with being part of a team, and may feel more like taking the lead in some way. It’s a time to shine, and there is a little more color and drama added to our daily lives with the Sun in Leo, as are inner-performer is awakened during this time. We want to enjoy and express ourselves now, but we also can be much more generous and grand in our gestures and attitudes.


We all have the sign of Leo in our personal Astrology Birth Charts, it is the 5th sign of Zodiac, and represents the heart of matters and creativity! We enjoy having fun and being more playful during this time. But we also may need more attention from our loved ones, close circle, or soul tribe. This Leo influence can make us more self-expressive and we can end up over sharing information. We tend to emotionally stay strong on the outside, and appear brave and proud, but deep down we may have some emotional issues we are struggling with.


On the shadow side of this transit, we can be self-centered, vain, and Hangry! Eat well and often throughout the day while the Sun is transiting Leo, or you can get moody and that Lions purr can turn into a Roar! Otherwise take the time and enjoy it, do something fun.


Have a great Leo Season,
~Ruby

Neptune Retrograde 2019

On 21st of June Neptune turns Retrograde.
Discover your inner-muse?


This fog rolls in and casts a veil over our normal practical lives. This influence causes us to temporarily lose our inspiration because we are re-working our dreams and wishes in regards to what’s happening emotionally within ourselves. This Retrograde cycle itself lasts until Nov 27th, which means this will be a period of confusion and indecisiveness. You may feel stuck or like you are in limbo, but it is a great time to work on discovering your inner-self.

This is an excellent time to strengthen your spiritual game folks, start a journal and record your dreams as well, make a vision board, and tune into what people are not saying rather than their words. Your intuition and psychic hunches are strong as this mystical planet changes direction. However, your logical mind is taking a vacay for the next 5 months! So trying to figure out where other folks are coming from, or finding information can be difficult, (especially while Mercury is in Retrograde as well!)

During this cycle you will be required to pay extra careful attention to the details as they will be elusive. And since we can be vulnerable now, and way more into the fantasies that play in our heads, assume if something sounds too good to be true, that it probably is! Don’t be a victim during this time which is the Shadow side of Neptune, we can be suckers and get taken if we don’t pay attention! It’s also all about the escape during this Neptune’s Retro period, it might be all to easy to leave your responsibilities behind and not deal with the reality of what is happening in the here and now on planet Earth!

This influence can get some of you into trouble if you choose to delve into things like alcohol, or drugs just to escape. It’s important to have a support system if you feel weak. So make sure and talk about how you are feeling to someone, during this time, let those pent up emotions out and be motivated by the fact that Neptune’s Retrograde cycle can indeed be a time to heal the spirit. This is a time to discover what helps inspire you, and find your own inner-muse!

Stay creative and tap into the best part of this energy!

Setting Intentions – New Moon

Setting Intentions-New Moon
June 3rd, 2019

“The New Moon for June will be coming together very early Monday morning, between now and then is a time to plant new seeds of intentions with the Universe, this will be a shift and a new energy that we need to take us out of the energies we’ve been under.

The days following a New Moon phase are auspicious. The actual day of the New Moon, the balsamic or dark Moon period, marks the beginning point when the heavens shift from dark to light. On the following days magic is in the air and our inner life is awakened. During the New Moon cycle we should be asking the Universe for new beginnings, by planting some seeds of intention and getting in touch with our Soul. It’s a good time to be grateful for what you have, and to work on manifesting what you’d like next to show up in your life next.

Setting Intentions under the New Moon

This is an opportune time to ask the Universe for new beginnings. The intentions that are set during a New Moon Ritual will set you on the right path towards your desires. Have a conversation with the Universe (meaning your higher power, Source, Guides, Angels, or whatever you connect with), and ask for the New Moon to light up the paths towards your deepest desires, ask to be shown what your wanting to manifest. Plant seeds of intentions with your mind and heart. So think it, but make sure and feel it!

Some of you might be asking how does one Set Intentions under the New Moon?

First you should set the mood, and create the energy, so light some candles, burn some incense or sage, and perhaps play some calming meditative music. Get comfortable and simply write down your deepest desires, wishes and questions. Ask yourself what would you would like to manifest or create, and what energy you’re trying to bring into your life?

As your doing your ritual and setting your intentions, here’s some helpful questions to think about. What are you choosing or what changes would you like to see in your life? What energy should you be calling in? How do you feel about what is happening in your life right now? What kind of energy do you want to create in your life during this New Moon?

Next most importantly you’re going to Visualize and feel what you’ve written down. Close your eyes and take some nice long deep breathes, now enter into your heart Chakra in the middle of your chest (the space you feel love from.) Visualize yourself in the desire or dream you’re creating. For example, see yourself living in that new home, falling in love with a Soul-Mate, driving that new car, and don’t forget to smell that new car smell. See yourself manifesting what you would like to call in during the New Moon. Just don’t think about it, make sure and “FEEL IT”, as if you were really experiencing what you’re visualizing.

The New Moon phase is the best time for planning and seeding your intentions. You’re going to need to be patient and wait for the seeds of intention you have planted to grow, just like you would wait on a flower to sprout from a seedling. Just remember when a plant grows it needs sunlight. This is also true for us humans, as we get our ideas together and make our visions known, it takes some time for our wishes or desires to surface into reality from the dark of Moon aka New Moon. We should start to see the path open up by the light of the Full Moon in a couple of weeks time, then you must follow and set intentions once again until you reach your goal. It’s all about keeping your heart focused on what you deeply desire. Try this New Moon ritual and see if you can get on the path towards your dreams.

Have a Happy New Moon.

Mercury shifts into Taurus



Astro Alert – a time to focus!


For All Zodiac Signs

Mental Mercury rules over our minds and how we express ourselves! Mercury changes signs into more practical Taurus on May 6 and stays through May 21.

This is a huge shift for all of us. We’ve been under a lot of fiery fast-moving planets since the end of February, and this is the last planet to shift out of that energy! Now the Sun, Mercury, Uranus and soon Venus all will be in the sign of Taurus. This definitely helps us feel more down to earth, stable, and grounded, which will be a nice change of pace but maybe take a few days to get used to. So if you feel tired or unmotivated, don’t worry it won’t last for too terribly long. Just no its a time to pay attention and move slowly.

However, we can feel so slowed down that we need to watch ourselves for feeling to down. This influence does help us use our common sense instead of being so impulsive. We tend to communicate still quite deliberately under this influence, and we can get right to the point and be a tad bit aggressive if we aren’t careful. But we also like to stick to what has worked in the past, so we would rather work with tried and true methods that have worked in the past, instead of finding new ways of doing things.

Our attention is more focused on doing one thing at a time, which can help keep our lives more simple as we should work really hard at what we want and manifest something for ourselves! We need to keep ourselves in check however, for being too rigid, stubborn, or conservative in our way of thinking.

Otherwise, enjoy this time and stop and smell the roses” from time to time. Enjoy life and all its simple pleasures.

~Ruby


Luck Comes Alive!



Rubys Astro Readings
May 2019


May’s abundant New Moon in the sign of Taurus, which is ruled by lovely Venus (beauty, money, love) just came together on Saturday the 4th, and brings us to the end of a cycle that has to do with financial issues! This New Moon brings you to end of some sort of Karma you’ve been dealing with around money and financial well-being. And it also kicks off a month-long period of abundant energy, and some sort of prosperity for many of you! If you’re willing to do a little work with the Universe it can go a long way right now. 

This positive financial shift can really make a huge difference in some folks lives! As the Buddha Full Moon comes together on May 18 next, this is when we should be releasing any long-term ancestral Karma around finances and other parts of our lives as well. If there have been any money issues or challenges passed down from generation to generation in your family, then you might be living under what’s called poverty consciousness! Now you can ask the Universe to help you let go of that way of thinking and that life, and be done with that Karma that binds you to financial misfortune. 

Work smarter, not harder I always say, so please do something proactive to be connected to this amazingly abundant shift. Just by working with the energies between the New and Full Moon during the month of May can bring many new opportunities onto your path for wealth and new financial resources. As the New Moon is in the sign of Taurus, so it is all about manifesting! Letting go and releasing under the Full Moon energy this month could open up space for the Universe to bring in something or someone new, this can end up being a much better fit or situation for you. So if you are losing a job, home, or relationship right now, again sit down today and write out some intentions to the Universe, and feel it after you’re done, visualize it in your mind and feel it in your heart and manifest what you want to create in your life next around money and abundance. 

When you can align your energy with these Cosmic events, and set your intentions and thoughts to the possibilities, and then make sure and do something about it, so take action during these powerfully abundant Cosmic periods. That’s when you’ll see some sort of good luck start to show up in your life. 

The Full Moon cycle we are in right now that starts May 18 is a time for releasing old poverty consciousness, learned behaviors, and wrong ways of thinking and doing money in your life, so instead you can open up your mind to unlimited possibilities! That’s when the wealth shows up! 

Important Dates to pay attention to May 4’s New Moon was just the start of a month filled with opportunities for financial gain. If you been feeling like there’s not enough money to just pay your bills lately, there’s a lovely connection between Venus and Jupiter on May 9. This influence can help us seriously attract money! 

There are also two more good cycles for money to be shifted into something more abundant in May! The first one begins around May 12 and runs all the way through May 24. Also, May 18 is the best day for unexpected money to show up! 

Lovely Venus will make a nice trine to powerful Pluto starting May 28 as well. This is a great aspect to land that new job or to gain the money that you’ve been waiting on, and for signing long-term commitments and/or contracts and so much more. All of this could bring in some abundance for many of you. So if you are also thinking about filing a lawsuit or a making a big negotiation of some kind, look for things to start happening around this period, so through June 7 

The next couple of months have a strong energy for lucky financial opportunities to come into your life. It’s a good time to get a Reading with me about your finances and see what you need to be doing to tap into this energy. Order a One Question Reading about your money luck, and will make a plan of action and see where you are headed. 

May you have lucky times ahead!

Saturn Goes Retrograde A Wake-Up Call!



Saturn Goes Retrograde
April 29 – Sept 18
By Rubys Readings


Nowadays, it’s become common knowledge to understand what Mercury in Retrograde is all about, but what you might not know is all the planets have a Retrograde cycle, which is when the planets appear to be moving backward in the sky! And these Cosmic shifts do cause significant changes and effects on all of us if we are aware of it or not! Saturn in Retrograde is considered to be a very powerful energy and marks a turning point in our lives. 

Starting April 29 the ringed-planet Saturn starts its five-month-long trip in its Retrograde cycle, through Sept 18.  This astrological event occurs just over every twelve months, lasting for nearly 4 and 1/2 months. Saturn Retrograde is not rare and lots of folks are born under one as well. This is a time of restrictions, blocks, limitations, and some anxiety and fear. The skills we learn during this Retrograde phase will prove essential to our growth for the long-term. In the coming days, you may feel off, weighed down, and disoriented, as once again our perspective shifts. But this is how we are affected by Retrograde planets at first anyway, at least until we have a chance to adjust to the shift in energy. 

Often it’s the very beginning and the end of these cycles (or commonly called Shadow Periods) that are the toughest or most challenging time. Just remember Retrograde cycles are always about perspective, so as these planets appear to be moving backward through the Cosmos, we too can feel like we’re going backward in our own lives, but it is a time to at least slow-down! 

During Saturn’s Retrograde cycle, it is a good time to revisit our relationships and work on any long-term goals we may have, as this is a time to pay close attention to our responsibilities and duties. It’s a time to restructure the way we manifest our reality and find new ways of thinking, and perhaps, adopt a different attitude about how to remove what is blocking us, or how to get through the obstacles that are in our way.

Saturn is known as the “Lord of Karma,” and while Retrograde it is a time when Karma is sorted out. Therefore, Saturn Retrograde can be a double dose of Karma handed-out. Karma is actually a form of energy that is very real, and like Saturn, it is very closely bound to time.

Over the next week, during the beginning of Saturn’s Retro phase, as it turns completely Retrograde, we may begin to feel the weight of it in certain situations quite heavily, especially around our responsibilities. Many of you will actually let go of certain commitments including relationships, jobs, or business deals, which can leave you wondering why you even bothered with them in the first place. We may feel somewhat disconnected and lose our motivation. It might be difficult to make important decisions during these influences, as our energy levels can be low. All of this is due to a change in perspective. We will learn how to find our footing and regain some sort of balance into next week, (into the first week of May), as we grow more accustomed to these shifts. Then we can turn Saturn’s Retrograde cycle into an opportunity, which is the most powerful way to see any Retrograde planet! Make this a time to go over and review your responsibilities, so you can figure out what’s working and what’s not. Take on any challenges you are dealing with and face your reality with gumption and make things happen, Saturn always rewards us for our hard work by the way. 

It’s important to slow down now and reconnect with what makes you feel useful, like your work, relationships, and duties. This, in fact, is not a good time to add anything to your existing responsibilities or duties, as the extra projects will just stress you out even more. We should be cutting back and reducing what we normally take on right now, it’s a time to make things simple folks! Any delays you happen to run in to now are just a kind reminder from the Universe that its time to make adjustments. This is a chance to make edits and corrections that are necessary for your success. This is a major time out from the Cosmos.

This influence has us take a look back at what we have already done or taken care of, so it can make you feel like you are moving backward and like you’re not moving forward. Actually, this is happening so you can review or go back over something that normally otherwise you wouldn’t have. Everything ruled by Saturn is under the microscope now and it’s a good idea to review these kinds of things. Like any rules or regulations you should be following, structures at work or in business, and traditions and foundations. Making changes to our ongoing projects or going over old ones can be successful, however, taking on new projects or responsibilities or commitments is probably not a great idea, it’s a time to simplify and restructure our lives first.

During Saturn’s Retrograde phase we will be dealing with particularly strong issues. Just remember as we take care of our unfinished business, Saturn is teaching us to be more patient and disciplined. Any skills we acquire during the retrograde phase will prove essential in the long-run to our success. 

Saturn’s lessons for all of us during its Retro phase is to take on certain responsibilities that we have already been developing or that are more important in our lives, so extra time is needed to take stock and to make sure everything is in order before we can continue. Saturn will present us with challenges and tests to make sure we are ready to take on these extra, but necessary responsibilities. The lessons we learn and that are taught by the Teacher of the Zodiac, Saturn, are often rough but they are valuable, and we are always rewarded by Saturn for our hard work and a job well done!

The shadow side to Saturn’s Retrograde is you may become sad or depressed, and not speak up for yourself, or act overly shy. If these behaviors get out of control during this time, then you’ll be offered a chance to recognize and admit you’ve got a problem. If this goes too far you can end up needed some help, so you can come out of your depression or isolation. Make sure and talk to someone if you start to feel down or too depressed, no matter what the planets are doing, there is always someone ready to listen and care more than you believe. 

This is an excellent time for schooling or training, but we may question it. There’s also going to be questions about our life, faith, and belief systems, as some folks will return to a Spiritual Path they started back in their past. We may need to tweak or edit a project that we plan on publishing or do something related to writing. Whatever you do during Saturn’s Retrograde, remember it’s a time to ride life straight and follow the rules, if you can do that you may learn a lot about life and gain some much needed and valuable insight that you can use for the long-term, and your future success.

Weekly Love Forecast

End of April first of May
For All Zodiac Signs 


There can be issues when it comes to communicating this week, as the energy can be touchy and sensitive, but as we leave the energy of April and move into May an amazingly romantic New Moon comes together. And whatever issues we drudge up over the week can be healed if we make an effort to do so.


Mental Mercury in fiery Aries will square off to both Saturn and Pluto, making this a week when words can be used as weapons, and what we say can really hurt. Instead, you could use your words to hurt someone else. Be careful folks, although you or your partner may feel compelled to express the truth in a to the point kind of way, there’s no way of telling just how badly you can hurt one another as a result!


Then, a New Moon in touchy-feely, sensual Taurus on Saturday makes a beautiful connection to the same planet Mercury that was challenging us at the beginning of the week. This is a time when we can get our physical and material needs in life and love met well. So perhaps any hurtful remarks that are made at the beginning of the week were meant to help open our hearts up, so we could heal something in the end after all.


Have a loving week folks

Pluto Goes Retrograde!

by Rubys Readings

Pluto Turns Retrograde (Backward) in the sign of Capricorn

April 24 – Oct 3rd
For All Zodiac Signs:

Welcome to the dark side of our human existence, the cosmic detective, powerful Pluto is starting it’s challenging Retrograde cycle today.

This energy can bring things out of the shadows into the light, so whatever is exposed might be a total shock to our system. Usually, this is regarding how we use and gain our own personal power when Pluto goes backward or Retrograde. But by the end of this Retrograde cycle, the truth will hopefully set you free!

The beginning of this shift brings with it confusion, as it seems to intensify the problem areas of our life. At first there is a heaviness in the air with this energy, however, this is an excellent time for research, and for discovering new insights into our own issues about how to keep or gain control and use our own personal power! This transit helps us discover our own motives. We can be enlightened by the information we receive about our own self-destruction, as well as the planets, but this is also about our personal transformation and the path we are heading down.

Has someone been dishonest with you? Or have you been dishonest with yourself in some way or just in total denial? With the right attitude, whatever you discover during this cycle could take you from a breakdown to a breakthrough, and perhaps a major ah-ha discovery!

How do you deal with power and control? Some folks can’t simply get enough power, and others get nervous when they have too much control, and then there are a those who refuse to take control of anything in their lives when they should. When Pluto goes Retrograde, it brings about power struggles around things such as power and who has control. People rise and fall from power during this time, as there are lots of plays made for power and control. This is a good time to do some soul searching around your own personal relationship with power. What are your goals? What do you want to achieve in life? Do you feel like you have power over someone else’s life, or is someone making the decisions for you? This can affect any part of our lives, but for the next several months we will be figuring out just how to move forward in ways that can make us feel more in control. Just be careful about who’s toes you step on, or how many folks you use your power over to get there! Remember Karmic balance always comes into play with these sort of things, and if you abuse or just use folks to get what you want, it will eventually catch up with you in one way or another. Pluto will be in its Retrograde cycle until October 3rd.

Do the work the Cosmos is showing you, and you can transform parts of your life during Pluto’s Retrograde cycle.

Venus Moves into Aries! -“Love On Fire”


Venus enters Aries – “Love On Fire”


From April 20 – May 15


The Goddess of love, Venus is moving into the first sign of the Zodiac which brings fresh new energy into your love life and around your finances. 


This cycle brings love on rather quickly, as relationships, both new and old are more direct and spontaneous. Under this fiery influence, we tend to hunt each other down in matters of the heart, as we are more bold, courageous, aggressive, and impatient.  


Even though we can be more direct than usual, some folks will be more reserved emotionally during this time. Feeling more unsure about themselves, especially if the love we feel is not been validated or expressed back. Love can be challenging, and if your confidence is already low then you can end up being more strategic or sneaky when it comes to matters of the heart. Under Venus in Aries we don’t look back, this is a time to move forward with anything concerning love or money. Each day is looked upon as new and full of opportunities, so each moment matters more so under this energy!


We are not interested in anything mushy or things like apologies, we simply enjoy the chase and conquest of someone we have feelings for. Relationships that are more long-term can use this fresh breath of air to reignite their passions! If you are single than watch out for hooking up with someone new, quick and fast! Often these relationships fizzle out just as quickly. Make sure and keep things moving forward if you are wanting a new commitment around love or money. Pay attention to what could happen in the long-term with whomever you are interested in unless you are just looking for a hookup, as that can be much easier than usual. 


Love can be raw and sexy with the love planet Venus in hot and bothered Aries, as it is ruled by the planet Mars which is always about sex, aggression, and passion, as they can go hand and hand. So our sexual adventures can be quite interesting during this time. 


Edit With Venus in Aries energy, we say how we feel out loud and don’t like to sugar-coat things. “Saying it like it is” is more important at this time. We aren’t always mean necessarily in this energy, but we speak our minds and for some that can be difficult to take. Our desires are strongly expressed and we are more spontaneous, direct, and enthusiastic. And we prefer to seduce rather than be seduced, to chase than to be chased or hunted. We want to be in charge and in control, so we say what goes in our relationships now, and can have debates or even arguments over who has the upper hand in a relationship, but this also can come out in business affairs around money as well, as we can be a bit overbearing if not careful. 


Have fun under this influence, enjoy some alone time with the object of your affection,

~Ruby
