Autumn Equinox 2019

The Seasons are changing once again and on September 23, 2019, the Sun moves into the sign of Libra, which marks the official beginning of the Autumn Equinox! This will be the turning point of the year, as we shift into a totally different energy, but there’s nothing to fear because it’s been rough folks. This shift into the Fall Season can actually help ease tensions and bring some calm into the mix.


Not only has the Sun moved into charming Libra, but so has the “great messenger” Mercury and the Goddess of Love, Venus. So our core-self, minds, and hearts are in sync, besides the constant need for balance these aspects turn our focus towards our relationships, so these influences bring in the energy of balance, cooperation, and equality.


Libra’s energy is all about finding balance, so we can learn how to live in harmony with others, especially in our relationships (of all kinds). Our partnerships and relationships will become very important during this time. This sign teaches us to look at life from a more compassionate but also accommodating perspective. It’s a good time to get out there and date if you are looking for love, as this is a time when the energies tend to create peace and harmony in the world. Generally speaking, this sign helps us to be the best versions of ourselves that we can be.


The Equinox gives us an opportunity to experience something new or different. This big shift in energy will be more focused on allowing our goals to meet their full potential. This has already been a difficult time for Mother Nature, she is still in a huge cleansing process that was initiated by the Eclipses over the summer. You are invited to work on balancing yourself and finding some sort of stability as well. However, as we work on getting our equilibrium back we will have to take on some lessons at first, so we have to accept this is the process we must follow, as the Universe puts us through tests and challenges. However, these lessons often help us to grow, mature, and evolve.


The energies have already been slowing down with Saturn going Direct and out of Retrograde just a week ago, so as we go through this major shift we can start to finally arrive, this means we will get those moments of peace where we can catch our breath and just take a long break! It’s time to move forward with your future goals and plans, you might just find others who will want to help or support you while reaching your goals.


The human race has been going through a lot and we can start to finally recover if only for a short time. The things or projects we put off and didn’t take care of will start to show up to be dealt with and finished over the Last Quarter of 2019. As new paths are opened and revealed, our reality will change and the Equinox’s energies can really help smooth things over as we adjust to these changes.


It is very important to embrace all that is happening now, and not hide from challenges, so trust yourself and your inner voice to guide you. Listen to your higher-self and your intuition. Many of you are already feeling drained and just off, but once we get on the paths we are supposed to be on things will start to calm down. Our creativity will be super strong and potent during this energy shift, so take some time to reflect on what you have been doing this year, so you can create what you want to happen next during the last part of 2019. Don’t look back, the past is behind you, focus on creating a bright and amazing future instead!


It's back, and it's bringing 2017's third installment of chaos and misunderstandings. That's right, Mercury Retrograde is happening again, and here's what it could mean for the rest of your summer. Mercury begins its dreaded quarterly back spin in Virgo Aug. 12, and goes direct Sept. 5. While all planets retrograde, Mercury seems to be the most universally detested, and Astrologist Susan Miller noted that there is a good reason for that. "This phenomenon is one of the...

Just a reminder for next month, on Halloween Mercury turns Retrograde for three weeks, this is a time to turn inward and do some sort of inner healing work, especially on how we hold and use our own personal power in the world. This will be a time when our thoughts can easily turn towards past lovers and ex-spouses or even just attractions we once had. Our feelings may be surprising, but for some folks especially woman you can become obsessed and get stuck on a past ex-lover, boyfriend, or attraction! So this can be an emotionally draining and demanding time. However, it is a great time to work at releasing those unhealthy attachments you have to the past and reclaim your power, and finally let those folks go on a deeper soul level!


This energy rolling in now will start to calm things down a bit, and should help us with the more difficult issues we’ve been having, so we basically are going into a time of recovery! Just give the Cosmos a little time to come together and allow these new energies to flow just where they need to. Try to stay as positive as you can and focus on what is to come, because it truly makes a difference even if things don’t appear that way at first. Patience is key to your success now.


Have a Happy Autumn Equinox and Mabon,

Setting Intentions with the Full Moon!


The Full Moon energy is building now and will occur Friday the 13th late at night, or very early Saturday morning depending on what part of the world you live in. So starting anytime today you can work on “Setting Intentions” with the Full Moon energy. This is a time to work on releasing from your heart what you no longer need, or what isn’t working for you! Work with the Cosmos and write a letter or meditate, and tell the Universe what it is you want to see happen in your life next. Let go of what needs to be done, be it a situation, person, or change in behavior. What do you want to release? What would you like to create or manifest? It can be about anything. You might be pleasantly surprised with the outcome, as this Full Moon illuminates the truth around the same time as some other cosmic connections are opening up doors for us to release old Karmic Debt. This is your chance to wipe the slate clean! And you get to rewrite the next chapters of your life! Think about your hopes, dreams, and desires, and feel it as if you already have obtained your goals.

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

🌟September Full Moon 🌕


🌟September Full Moon 🌕
For All Zodiac Signs 

The Harvest Full Moon illuminates the night sky on Friday the 13/14, 2019, in the sign of Pisces depending on what time zone you live in, and occurs right after Midnight Eastern Time and before Midnight Central Time.


The Moon in creative Pisces and is making an opposition to the Sun in detailed Virgo. This Full Moon is a powerful, strong emotional time due to it being under such sensitive Zodiac Signs. Full Moons are always about creating a balance between the Moon and Sun’s opposition. You probably already know what part of your life you should be working on during this Full Moon, but if not you should focus on balancing your logical mind with your intuition to help solve problems. This is about our thoughts versus our feelings, or left and right brain ways of thinking.


This particular Full Moon can bring up issues that have to do with everyday routines, physical health, and a need for order. This is about combining our everyday world with our visions, spiritual health, wellness, and disorders, with the infinite or some kind of spiritual energy. The Virgo (Sun) energy helps us with the tools we use to deal with our daily lives, while the Pisces (Moon) energy helps us connect to our spirituality and create some sort of healing, so we can better deal with our physical reality and limitations.


This Full Moon can help us develop and learn how to express our feminine energies by understanding how to trust our intuition. Practice allowing your feelings to move through you and flow as these energies do. Learn how to have compassion for all things and yourself during this Full Moon. Ask yourself what you need to forgive and release, and what might be blocking you from happiness. To the best of your ability use the healing powers of the Pisces Full “Super Moon” to help.


If you need some balance in your life this Full Moon can help you learn how to maintain order in your everyday life, without neglecting your spiritual health and wellness. Life can get quite chaotic if you ignore either side of the Full Moon energy. This is a time when we must release something like an old behavior, people or a situation, as this is a time of endings but also new beginnings. Whatever you started thinking about or working on during the last New Moon a few weeks ago will now start to come into being. This is a time of romance and relationships as well.


This Full Moon also occurs right after the Sun has aligned with passionate Mars, and the magical Moon has aligned with the dreamy energy of Neptune. But Mars and Neptune also form a tense opposition, and then sweet Venus and mental Mercury form a conjunction, and finally the Moon will harmonize with powerful Pluto! Unless you know your Astrology this can sound so confusing, but really this is about dealing with many different cosmic influences at once. This seems to be the theme for the month of September. Read on to understand how to handle all of this energy!


This is a highly concentrated potent energy that can feel more intense than a regular Full Moon, and it is “Truth Telling Time” folks, as what’s been kept secret, hidden, lost, suppressed, or denied seems to come out and is revealed. So we can feel overly excited or anxious a few days before the Full Moon occurs, as this connection between the Sun and Moon create intense energy until the Moon swells to its Full illumination. Ask for what you would like to know and the Universe will reveal things during this time. Look for signs and symbols both in life and your dreams and visions to figure it out.


A little Fun Fact is that this Full Moon is considered to be what’s called a “Micro-Moon.” This cute little Full Moon is actually the exact opposite of a “Super-Moon”, which is closer to planet Earth. So a Miro-Moon is actually at its farthest point from the Earth. Some scientists believe this does lessen its effects on the planet, but I will bet many others don’t agree, but we love this little guy irregardless. You go little Micro-Moon!


During this time there are usually sudden discoveries made, and we can experience epiphanies and sudden flashes of insight that help Keep Things Real! Our high expectations can get us into some trouble, as we expect more! Our imaginations are very strong, therefore we have a rich fantasy game going on right now, and can have some issues dealing with reality.


Feelings of needing to change course or escaping can also be very strong during this time, which can be fine if we escape in healthy ways through such things as music, movies, entertainment, or just reading a good book. Since this is an emotionally intense time, some folks will turn to alcohol or drugs to forget about their troubles and pain. Not only can this be a problem, but it can be downright dangerous with foggy Neptune’s energy involved. We can lose control and slip into some sort of lost energy, as we cross boundaries and overdo things. Please be careful and keep a watchful eye out for anyone you see struggling, as depression can set in and poor choices can be made. Help those that can’t help themselves, or those who are feeling badly!


Have a happy and safe Full Moon,
~Ruby

Mercury in Leo – “Express Yourself”



Mercury in Leo– “Express Yourself

For All Zodiac Signs:
Mercury entered the sign of proud and expressive Leo on August 11th, and runs through August 29th. With mental Mercury the planet that rules our minds and the way we communicate in the sign of Leo our will and way of thinking is very strong, so we can feel more confident and tend to demand respect. But we don’t mind expressing ourselves as much, and enjoy the finer things in life. 

However, we can get quite upset if we feel someone is talking down to us, or is not listening to what we are saying. We should be extra careful, especially with the Sun, Venus, and Mars already in the sign of Leo! That’s a whole lot of fire energy going on and we can be extremely aggressive, pushy, or overbearing. Some folks do not understand how to handle all this strong energy, so if you start to feel upset take some time away and get space, so you can keep that Roar down to a purr.

It’s a good time to focus on your goals, and the more magnificent they are the better. This cycle can help us organize our thoughts, so we can concentrate for longer periods of time, which can help us meet our goals. Our minds are full of energy and our will power is strong, we are full of perseverance and have a stronger sense of purpose. We also may feel more proud and hopeful, so our thoughts just naturally turn to the positive. We can generally be more kind, easy-going, and cheerful, but we also can be quite opinionating, stubborn, arrogant, and forceful.

The little actions we take do really matter in this energy,but the details aren’t as important because we want to get to the point and have some fun. We are much more expressive and a little dramatic, and can do well when we get an opportunity to express ourselves, so giving speeches or telling stories can go quite well. We also can be very charming, convincing, and persuasive because we are so full of confidence and pride, especially when we speak or write. Therefore, we should be mindful to listen to people to hear them and not just to reply, because we might want to chat a lot more than usual. Also, watch for gossip, it is all too easy to start talking about other folks during this time, and we can get wrapped up in what we’re talking about and end up oversharing private information with the wrong people.

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

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

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

Have a good rest of August,

Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse July 2019

Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse
For All Signs Of The Zodiac 


The Moon is Full in the sign of Capricorn on July 16, 2019, and it’s a partial Lunar Eclipse. It comes together around 4:39 PM CST, 5:39 PM EDT.  The Eclipse occurs when the Moon in Capricorn opposes the Sun in Cancer.


This is an especially potent Full Moon, being its a Partial Lunar Eclipse, so our focus turns towards our relationships under this lunation. But also our work and family lives. 


Eclipses create the energy of crisis in our lives, and often they bring up what we are lacking. This is a time when we can suddenly realize there’s something missing, perhaps a need or want we can’t seem to fulfill. This Eclipse can actually split some relationships up, but it also brings folks together. Suddenly, we may realize that there’s a need to have other folks around helping support us. This is also about making sure the foundation of our soul tribe of friends and family is strong. But Lunar Eclipses are not always about relationships, they can also bring up certain needs in other areas of our life, such as our relationship to our work, or to our health and bodies, it really can be about anything. The Full Moon lights up our deeper feelings that have been just sitting below the surface to be dealt with. 


Under the Full Moon, we can be very emotional and express ourselves without warning. This is a time when some folks will claim out loud what they are really about and what they want in life. We are reacting from a strong but illogical emotional place. Lunar Eclipses are stronger and more potent than a normal Full Moon, so its effects can last up to about six months after it occurs. 


Lunar Eclipses are about relationships and are oppositions, this time around the Sun in Cancer and the Moon in Capricorn are bumping against one another. So we must take a closer look at our needs, lacks and wants in our lives and create a balance around what we should be working on. This Full Moon is about our personal private lives, our need for a secure home base, and how we nurture ourselves. The other side of this energy is our public life, careers, reputations, and how we take responsibility. Being attached and love is ruled by Cancer, while our success and rewards and punishments are ruled by Capricorn energy, this polarity deals with balancing unconditional and conditional love. The Cancer energy involved encourages us to value our home life and that foundation, as well as our roots, while the Capricorn energy wants us to consider our sense of duty and responsibility along with our professional lives. Cancer energy is about being content with being dependent, Capricorn wants us to grow the hell up and take responsibility! Cancer energy also represents the beginning and where we come from, and Capricorn is about the goals we set. Ideally, setting some sort of balance between these two energies is what the Full Moon is asking us to do.


This Full Moon is helping us learn how to strike a balance between our commitments to our work and families both. As we’ve been holding onto something emotionally that’s very important, as the Cosmos is reminding us via the Full Moon that it’s still there to let out and express how we are feeling, so these issues to be released. Hopefully, over time we’ll have all the information we need to better understand what all of this means.  


The Full Moon energy brings up an inner conflict to be dealt with, and it can prove difficult to sit with such strong feelings, so we need to find ways to express them. This causes that crisis situation, as some kind of sudden awareness around what we are lacking in our life usually comes up! This is an opportunity to figure out what we need. So during this highly emotionally charged time, our relationships can be challenging, and either broken or dramatically made even stronger. We also may experience some kind of major Ah-Ha moments or epiphanies. This leads us to learning more about what we don’t have and taking some actions to obtain it. 


Full Moons and especially Lunar Eclipses bring up issues in our lives to finish something. Our emotions are stronger than usual and there’s often some sort of drama involved around whatever part of our own personal Astrology Birth Chart the Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse is cruising through. That’s the area of our life that the Cosmos is pushing us to make much-needed changes in. There can be some serious drama in whatever part of our life this Eclipse is going through. So a path is often revealed to us, so we can move towards it and make things better, if we understand it or not, it is trying to align us with our true Soul Journey, as our life destiny is at play. Usually, these issues are something we’ve been sitting on or ignoring, so our emotions have been building, and this Eclipse helps us realize they are still there, we just haven’t chosen to work through them yet. The Full Moon’s light and energy draw them out into the open, so if we get in touch with our emotions we can get a much more clear idea about what actually needs to be done or changed and let go of.


The Lunar Eclipse occurring in the sign of Capricorn sets off our inner awareness about the flaws in the structures we’ve built in our lives, especially in our careers and involving our home and family life. So there are serious decisions that need to be made to fix things. This Lunar Eclipse is a powerful one with confrontational energy, because it’s making a conjunction to psychological and powerful Pluto, and is opposite Mercury (now in Retrograde). This brings out intense emotional reactions compulsive behavior, and of course, power struggles around crisis situations, so this can be quite a complicated time, as there’s a stronger need to do something, it can cause us to feel a sense of urgency. Take some time for yourself and try to relax while we get through this strong energy.

New Moon Setting Intentions Guide

“New Moon Setting Intentions Guide”


There’s a New Moon occurring soon, which makes this the best time of the Month to set some powerful intentions. These Wish Lists or Intentions can be about your future dreams, desires, and goals. Learning how to work with the cycles of the Moon can be a life-changing experience.


*Setting Intentions*

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

Also, just sometimes when you Set Intentions with the New Moon energy amazing things happen and you get what you want very quickly!

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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


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


Follow the Steps below to learn how:

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


Step One: Clear Your Sacred Space

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


Step Two: Set the atmosphere

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


Step Three: Setting Intentions

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

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

As you’re doing this work and Setting your Intentions, here are some helpful questions you can think about. For example; ask for what you’re choosing or what changes you would like to see in your life? What are you or should you be calling in? How do you feel about what is happening in your life now? What do you want to change and create?

Think about your long-term goals and future. Be careful about focusing too much on the how, why, and when’s around how you will get what you want! Instead, focus more on what it is you are choosing and how you want to FEEL. See the end result! Only see the ultimate ending and again what it feels like when you receive what it is you are choosing! What you see in your mind’s eye, so don’t focus on how you get it, or the hurdles you have to jump, or sacrifices you may have to make. Just allow the Universe to shoulder the burden for you once you have requested what you want and let them take care of the rest. Have some faith in something. Rule # One is always energy follows thought, it will come to you in one way or another, or you’ll be put at least on a path towards your goals.


Step Four: Visualize

It’s time to visualize what you have written. Close your eyes and take some long deep breaths, so in your nose and out your mouth. Repeat this about 4 or 5 times. See the energy of your heart center, that’s in the middle of your chest, not over your pumping heart but your spiritual heart or commonly referred to as the “Heart Chakra.” Visualize yourself in what you are actually trying to create or manifest. For example: see yourself living in that new home, falling in love with that Soul-Mate, or driving that new car. Just don’t think it folks, make sure and FEEL IT, as if you were really experiencing what you’re visualizing!


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

You also might gain some clarity around something or someone that is not serving your higher good, and they actually could be blocking you from your desires. So, in other words, pay attention after you’re done doing this work so you can clearly understand what the Universe is trying to show you!

Have a blessed New Moon and good luck.

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!

Saturn/Neptune-Future Goals

Rubys Astro Readings
Tues, June 18


For All Zodiac Signs:
Please Note that if you usually just skim over my blogs and sort of get the highlights that is awesome, but today’s Blog is extremely important to really understand as the Cosmic Energies are affecting us so profoundly right now, that you may want to read all of this one!


The Moon remains in more earthy Capricorn all day long. This is a strong time for making a realistic dream come true. The Moon is still somewhat Full, causing some emotional waves here and there. Just don’t get worked up too much over nothing.


Future Goals
Have you been working hard at changing something big in your life, or do you feel pulled on to make a major change?

A long-term strong influence between the Lord of Karma, Saturn and dreamy Neptune has been running strong since January, but peaks out this week and again in November of 19, and runs its course throughout 2019. This helps us bring some kind of structured dream or goals, and our faith together. This is sconce meets beliefs it’s been interesting. It’s quite a supportive energy, but also intense feeling as it pushes us to reach goals and go after our dreams. It has been rough for some of you, as this influence makes it crystal clear what we can do, and should do in regards to our future plans and goals. So some things have fallen away in our lives this year, or we have been made aware of something that isn’t going to work out anymore. If we like it or not, understand it or not! This has helped breathe new life into our visions, as long as we are making a real effort towards realizing a dream.

This energy has primarily been affecting our plans, that we’ve been building on already, be it about a job or relationship. It’s can be about anything. So it’s been smoothing our rough edges when it comes to business plans and goals. It’s also giving us a sense of purpose or a mission in life again, which puts us on a path towards our soul journey in this life. If you connect it your spiritual self and do a little bit of work and make some effort you’ll be rewarded. This gives us a reason to be dedicated and committed towards our own unique spiritual path, while still building something real right here and now. So we might just end up showing our devotion to whatever it is we believe in through our hard work and service.


Two Steps Ahead
Mental Mercury aligns with driven Mars in the sign of Cancer today. Since we want to get things done our communication skills are on point! There are two different sides to this aspect’s influence, which fuses the intellectual powers of Mercury with the assertiveness of Mars. We can feel motivated, driven, and passionate about communicating or doing anything mentally. It can be an amazing time for sports or energy work, as this energy helps sync our minds with our bodies. Powerful Pluto hooks into this energy as well today, turning our attention towards fixing or solving a problem, just don’t get obsessed. Our family and home life take center stage, as our security is extremely important during this time. We can come off as insensitive when expressing our feelings because we are all “in your face” and to the point. By being allowed to vent or talk about our problems out loud can be liberating, and it also helps rid of any excess mental energy in a healthy way.


Powerful Emotions
However, this influence also creates tension, as we can be overly excited about our ideas and opinions, and we aren’t in the mood to listen to others input! This makes the energies extremely competitive. Whether we speak about our feelings or not is our choice. Just know that communications come with extra speed and impact today. If you say it, mean it, and be willing to work through the outcomes that probably will follow! So it just might be wise to sit with your powerful feelings, as any conflicts or confrontations we are involved in right now can pull out some nasty or perhaps suppressed feelings or anger! On the other hand, if you’ve been needing to express yourself in some way, it’s a powerful time to say what you need to and get your point across! Just know when enough is enough if you can.

We can get pushy when it comes to knowing the truth about something, and exposing what’s real and what’s false. But we make mountains out of molehills. This can bring out paranoid thoughts and a ridiculous amount of suspicious behavior and thinking! If we can try to make this a lesson and learn from any jealousy felt, this can help us understand more so what it is we really want and truly desire.

What a time it is folks, full of intense feelings and emotions, so make sure to think before reacting, and have a good day.

June Full Moon

FULL MOON WEEKEND 

For all the Signs of the Zodiac:



Starting early Saturday morning the Moon shifts into more optimistic, sunny Sagittarius, and will grow until it becomes FULL early in the morning on Monday, June 17th at 3:31 AM CST, 4:31 AM EDT, 2:31 AM MDT, and 1:31 AM PST!


A Full Moon is when the Sun in Gemini (this month) is directly the opposite of the Moon in Sagittarius (this month), and this is a rather naturally impulsive kind of energy, that can have us feeling scattered and all over the place, so things can be quite unpredictable! 


This is such an awesome time as we get the whole weekend to celebrate this glorious Full Moon energy, and hopefully, you will do some energy work, and SET INTENTIONS or make out WISH LISTS that are more so about letting go of what is no longer working or serving you in life. This is strong and potent energy to celebrate and enjoy with this Full Moon being in “the life of the party,” sign of Sagittarius. This Full Moon forms under the mutable, changeable sign of Sagittarius, alongside expansive Jupiter, so we must expect some sort of changes to naturally occur, as this is a time to seek out new activities and explore different areas of life, and hopefully, we find something that provides fulfillment. 


When the Moon is traveling through the sign of Sagittarius, you might feel like the “grass is greener” on the other side of whatever it is you are giving attention too! You may feel like “jumping ship” from your regular routines or doing something different like learning a new language. The lessons of Sagittarius energy no matter your “Sun Sign” is to be more hopeful, optimistic, and adventurous. This energy helps all of us learn how to “live life out loud” and to believe in the possibilities. We can feel more free-spirited and express ourselves more openly under the Moon in Sagittarius. And this energy is definitely one where we “tell it like it is!”


We are more motivated to seek out the truth in this energy and go after a new vision, as we go on new adventures even if it’s just ones playing in our minds, which in turn can help us feel more calm and content. The details aren’t as important as seeing “the whole picture” is now.


Spontaneity is key to enjoying this energy because planning ahead limits the adventure that we want to have and that’s just boring! We generally prefer to go with the wind and just “Wing It” in the Sagittarian energy.


Since the Moon reflects and is attuned to our deeper emotions, we may also be quite sensitive to being judged or criticized for our behavior, so we may shy away from others and hide, so that can’t see who we truly are. But with both Jupiter and the Moon being in more open-minded Sagittarius, it may prove challenging to hide anything under this Full Moon, as all around this is a strong time for Truth! This adds more spark to an already strong emotional firey energy! Any feelings that get stirred up during this time, are going to be so strong that we may feel like a pot of boiling water and have to express ourselves no matter the consequences. 


We’re more likely to overdo things and express ourselves a little too much during this time. Sagittarius energy is about the process of self-discovery and finding something new and exciting. So we tend to not think first and can say “out loud” exactly what we are thinking and sometimes end up “putting our foot in our mouth!”


The following activities are generally favored during the Moon in Sagittarius; adventures, unplanned activities, travel, higher education and learning, publishing projects, advertising, sports, and physical activity!


There also is a current T-Square energy with a Jupiter-Neptune Square coming together during this Full Moon. So even if we don’t understand the motivations of others, we need to make it a point to connect to our hearts and show empathy when faced with the truth. Dealing with obstacles and setbacks can cause frustrations, which can lead us into negative thinking like the Universe is beating us up! Instead, view them as lessons in true Sagittarius fashion and be more optimistic about your experiences instead, see them as character building to help us to become masters!


Full Moon Madness is upon us folks!

Pay attention as June’s Full Moon comes together Monday morning, so this weekend can be full of some weird but strong energies and experiences. Make sure to remember the Full Moon causes a physical reaction that usually provokes an emotional response that can affect all of us! It just depends on how we learn to handle the energy or don’t. There’s always going to be the ones who don’t handle it well and may act out and get wild under this Full Moon energy, so expect for some people to just act out of character. Otherwise, enjoy this time and celebrate this glorious illumination. 


Happy Full Moon,
~Ruby

Venus Enters Gemini

On June 8, Venus the Goddess of Love, that rules over our relationships and often financial affairs enters the sign of Gemini, through July 3rd.

We definitely can be more talkative and naturally curious, under this influence. Our minds are whirling with juicy information along with a stronger than normal desire to share, however, we can get lost in conversation. We can be extremely indecisive but also aware, because we can read between the lines in any form of communication. This is a time when we like to multi-task as we’re motivated by our own curiosity. Which with Venus involved, the Goddess of Love, that means some people are also going to be more curious than usual about being free and not in a relationship, as the air sign Gemini influence can make us desire more alone time, and we can feel quite detached and therefore, this is not a time to take love or a relationship too seriously. Keep it light and fluffy folks!

On the other hand under this influence we are more flirty, so it’s no wonder this is a time of romance as we tend to date and hook up more. There’s a need for variety and diversity however, because our minds are so charged up that our hearts tend to follow. This energy keeps us engaged and interested in human contact and relationships. Since Venus is involved, this energy affects our love lives and relationships, and with it being in the sign of Gemini, we can be more fickle and picky.

Feeling more attracted to words, we can bond very easily with others on mental levels, but we are also more sensitive to stimulus, touch, and other vibrations that are being sent out on the airwaves. So we can feel quite good with positive energies, but very bad if we get around anything negative. The energy of Gemini is very empathic and therefore we tend to feel everyone’s else’s emotions from time to time, so you may want to be more careful about taking on our lovers emotional baggage and protect ourselves energetically. Shields up folks!

It is a good time to connect intellectually with others relationships, but especially with our partners, as we feel each other’s energies in a unique way. But we can be more fun, whimsical, light and breezy, but also quite animated and often funny in our relationships. So we don’t enjoy getting to deep emotionally right now, and would much rather keep our relationships more above the surface for now.

This is a strong time for sexual activities, and tantalizing communication, as a little erotica whispered in the ears of our lovers or partners can send them over the edge! But we should be picky and not just get it on with anyone who is willing. Don’t take a little extra attention or an open invitation as a clear sign you should be doing anything with just anymore.

Venus also rules over money, and since there are two sides to the sign of the twins, Gemini’s duality comes into play. As our attitude towards our finances is more easy come, easy go. We are cheapskates in one moment and spendthrifts in the next, all depending on how much mola we have in the moment. With Venus in intellectual Gemini, we tend to spend our money on experiences that will stimulate our mind, like movies, books, apps online, and writing materials. So even when money is low, we manage to come up with just enough to watch something fascinating, or purchase a good book, or just have coffee with a friend.

Enjoy!

Astro Monthly Forecast for June 2019


June has arrived as we have been already cruising through Gemini Season (when the Sun is in Gemini), that runs through the end of this month, so this looks to be like a very interesting time! It’s consistent but also an important time of the year. Since July 2019 will have both our next Eclipse Season and the next Mercury Retrograde cycle. June might just be the zen month we need to prepare for all the energy coming. As there are no major Cosmic Connections this month, but we do have two of 2019’s major transits, so certain energies are playing out in June that connects us back to where we were last January in some way, and where we will probably end up by the years end. 


The New Moon occurs on June 3rd in the sign of Gemini, this brings fresh new energy into our lives. If we stay aware of the positive energies this influence brings, we can learn from others by simply being curious, as we can work on improving our social and communication skills. So we can learn how to think and express ourselves with our words. As the planet, Mercury will also be in its own sign of Gemini during this time, which makes this a good time for mental focus so you can Set Intentions or make out Wish Lists with the New Moon energy. 

Keep your mind open so you can receive all the information flying around during this time. It’s also a good period to learn about all sorts of things, and how to enjoy different kinds of people and personalities. This lunation can help us get our Astro house of communication in order, so we should be planning and creating our future goals. Time to get writing pen to paper during this New Moon! Make a wish list or a bullet list about what energy you want to call into your life! What do you want to see happen next? This New Moon is pretty chill compared to what we’ve been dealing with over the last several months, so enjoy it folks!


On June 4 Mercury enters the sign of the crab, Cancer. Many of you will have to make some decisions around your family or other close relations, home, and if dealing with real estate. This won’t slow us down much, but the Trickster planet of the Zodiac does hit its pre-shadow of Retrograde cycle, (yes that is Mercury in Retrograde on June 20.) During this upcoming Mercury in Retrograde cycle, it will go between the Signs of Cancer and Leo, but remember that’s just the sign the planet Mercury is in and that energy affects every single sign of the Zodiac. This Influence can cause some of you to feel extremely negative or overly critical, cynical, or judgemental in your thinking. It will be important during this time to make sure and not react without really thinking things through first.


On the 6th of June, Jupiter forms a somewhat challenging aspect to Uranus, which again can cause restlessness if our dreams are not happening! And especially if what we thought could happen in our future is no longer fulfilling or is no longer inspirational. You might go on some hunt for something impractical or go on some unusual tangent that doesn’t last for long. 


Starting June 8 Venus enters the sign of Gemini, through July 3. So we are more talkative and curious by nature, as our minds are always whirling with juicy information along with a stronger than normal desire to share. Our hands are usually in many pots during this time, as our curiosity motivates us both romantically and socially. We are looking for variety and diversity, as we are much more social, communicative, and interested. Connecting mentally with others, especially our partners brings great surges within ourselves. We are more fun and animated but we like to keep our distance when it comes to our deeper emotions. When it comes to the “love” department, we tend to be attracted to words more so and can bond very easily with someone on a mental level. We are more sensitive to touch and other vibrations that are being sent out, so we can react well to any kind of positive feedback. A little erotica murmured in our ears could be the very thing that sends us over the edge during this time. Be discriminating, however, and don’t get it on with just anyone who provides an open invitation. This influence brings tantalizing communications. But we can be super picky and fickle, as well in our relationships and with our finances. 


On June 16th, Jupiter forms a square to Neptune, this second meeting in a set of three is the last one, the last one occurred back in January and September before that. This influence has caused challenges with our rather high expectations around faith, hope, beliefs, and our dreams. As this builds around the 13th or so we can start to feel it’s presence more strongly in our personal lives. It’s easy to fall for some sort of illusion maybe through others or by our own unrealistic ideas. There have been and will be consequences around disorganization, neglect, extravagance, and exaggeration. You can feel quite restless and this can be stronger than usual, and our routines just may not make us as happy during this time. So it’s easy to get off track and take some sort of new path, but it will be practical. This can cause us to wander and feel sort of lost because we are not grounded. Also, don’t be fooled as this is a time when we can be taken by something or someone, make sure and watch very carefully that you do not ignore or avoid things, and you might just change your beliefs or philosophies in some way to justify how you’ve been avoiding these issues. There can be issues around setting boundaries for ourselves, so keep your head out of the clouds. It might be important to be more strict with discipline, and what your normal schedule is to make sure you don’t get carried away. Spiritual inspiration can be strong as we get to let go of false beliefs, expectations, and old worn out attitudes.


The Full Moon occurs on June 17th in the sign of Sagittarius, this serves as a reminder to explore beyond your normal boundaries, and change up our usual everyday routines, and our way of thinking. This illumination is a time of expansion in all ways, so we should focus on what energy or adventure in life we want to explore and grow in next. Also, it’s all too easy to blow things out of proportion during this time, so we need to let go of what is no longer working for us or is serving our lives anymore. It’s a time to celebrate the blessings in your life, the things you have already made happen, your successes. Let this powerful opposition between the Sun and the Moon (FULL MOON) take your troubles from the past away forever! The Full Moon can be one of the most difficult times for us emotionally, feeling and expressing gratitude to the Universe can help us move forward on our soul’s journey. During this Full Moon, we should concentrate on our future plans and goals, there is a more optimistic vibe in the air with a sense of moving forward in a new direction, hopefully on that helps heal the planet and focus more so on the Divine Feminine. This energy is all about moving ahead as it is strongly enthusiastic in nature, and even its energy helps us take these actions. But we must remember at the same time, Full Moons are all about releasing what is no longer working for us or serving us. So there might be a lot of endings or chapters closing during this time as well. 


On June 18th Saturn makes a beautiful connection to dreamy Neptune, this is a major transit influencing us for most of 2019. This is the second in a set of three meetings between these two planets, the last one occurred in January of 19 and the next one will come together in November of 19. This brings together the discipline of Saturn and dreams of Neptune, so it helps bring structure and meaning to our ideals and plans for our future dreams and goals. Neptune has room to grow and we are better able to show our acceptance and devotion which can help us bring new meaning to our work especially, but also traditions and customs. We feel more strongly and enjoy the sense of purpose in our lives under this influence. This can harmonize our spirituality with our material goals here in this physical existence or realm. The best part of this influence is how our circumstances because of our attitude can help us follow through with our dreams, as we can turn our visions and ideals seriously into reality! Work on syncing your imagination and physical actions now, so visualize what you want in your mind and feel it, and then take steps to actually make it happen, as this is serious manifesting energy folks, your efforts will be rewarded. Because there is a stronger belief and sense that our dreams are realizable in some way now, we can build a much stronger faith and acceptance.


June 20th is important because even though Mercury doesn’t officially go Retrograde until next month on July 7th, it starts it’s Pre Shadow periodMercury is Retrograde this time around from July 7th through August 1st, but it starts its journey on the 20th of June. Mercury must cover territory that it knows already first, so we will be doing some backtracking during its Shadow Period this month. This shadow time will have us go over everything that has to do with our thoughts, conversations, negotiations, and ideas. There can be a sense of turnaround, revisiting things, and delays. So pay attention to everything that comes up from the 20th till July 7th. Think about how life is speaking to you, ask how do you receive your signs or messages from the Universe, or whatever you want to call it! It speaks to us through synchronicities and messages that are usually quite subtle, that you tend to write off as just a coincidence. But the more aware you are this month, and the more you pay attention to those signs and messages the easier July will be for you!


Happy Summer Solstice.
Happy Birthday to all the Cancers of the Zodiac!

On June 21st the Sun will shift into more withdrawn Cancer, which also marks the Summer Solstice.

The Sun shifts into more private, emotional Cancer until July 22nd, and our attention is turned towards our family unit, home life, and anything that makes us feel at home, safe, and secure. This symbolizes our need to plant roots and to figure out just where we belong in this world, but the Cosmos may not be as cooperative as we would like, and we can feel moody and pensive during this time.

The Sun’s entrance into Moon-ruled Cancer not only marks the Summer Solstice, but has us more focused on our personal lives, and this includes building you and your family’s safety and security, while nurturing your loved ones and creating a comfortable life at home. It just makes sense that the symbol for the security-minded sign of Cancer is the Crab, this is a creature that takes its home wherever it goes! It’s important to take care of your social obligations, especially your professional life while the Sun is in Cancer, all your activities outside of your home will be more successful when you have a strong family and home base to fall back on, and a more solid schedule. Over the next month make sure to set time aside to relax and recharge your batteries and don’t forget how important it is to spend quality time with those you love.


On the 21st, Neptune turns Retrograde. This fog will roll in as it 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 with 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 more. 


On June 26, Mercury shifts into the sign of Leo. When Mercury is in the house of Leo, people’s high aspirations and ideas will be put through tests and challenges. But we must remember during this time Mercury will already be in its Pre-Shadow period of Retrograde. Therefore, there can be confusion of all sorts over the same. People can lose their temper more often once Mercury is Retrograde, especially in the sign of Leo with its pre-shadow period beginning June 20th. Those in power and authority are likely to make major mistakes and blunders resulting in utter chaos in the country, which is really the last thing we need right now here in the US, but this applies to all countries. Issues involving love and relationships are likely to heat up during this time, so relationships can be difficult as communication is fuzzy and confusing. Don’t allow children to overindulge or even adults you care for, as they can take eating too much or playing too much to a whole new level. Starting anything new or that you don’t fully trust should be put off during this time and waited out until Mercury is totally out of Retrograde later in August. Leo is ruled by the heart as well, so we should pay extra close attention to what we are eating or any bad habits we might have during this time.


Have a good month folks, and if you need any guidance during this time, please contact me to schedule a session at healingruby@gmail.com or via messages here or on my FB page. Many blessings,
~Ruby
