Time of Astrological Retrogrades & Eclipses
By Ruby

Many of you have expressed to me how you want to move forward in one way or another, in some part of your life, and yet you feel stuck! And you’re probably very curious when you’ll get to start moving forward again. Well here’s what’s happening.

It is a time of Retrograde Planets!
It’s not that you are necessarily doing anything wrong, in fact, you probably have been doing everything you can think of, but perhaps that’s not even working! This is a time to wait, and do your work spiritually! During Retrograde time like now, we go more inward and start to process on a very deep level all of the issues in our life we want to change or even some of the stuff we don’t, we just can’t make things work in the same way! This is NOT YOUR FAULT! It is not about what you are doing.

This summer at one point there will be six planets in their Retro cycles, except for the Sun and Moon, and not only are they in Retrograde but also they are hanging out together. The Retrograde planets cause blocks and major slowdowns in more than one area of your life. However, this doesn’t mean everything in your life will be stuck or on hold. But just like everyone else, there will be some things that get stopped. Most of you aren’t too happy about this Astrological lineup, so it’s important to understand just what part of your own personal Astrology Birth Chart these Retrogrades are moving through because that tells us what part of your life is being most affected. Even though you already probably could guess some of it just by what you are experiencing.

SO GIVE YOURSELF A BREAK and avoid taking actions because this is seriously a waiting game we are in!

Retrograde Planets Timeline

  • Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, and Pluto will all be Retrograde between June 26 and July 10th.
  • Jupiter turns direct and out of Retrograde on July 10th, leaving four planets retrograde.
  • July 25, Mercury is Retrograde and there are 5 planets going in reverse.
  • August 7, Uranus turns Retrograde and that makes six planets plus Chiron Retrograde.
  • The planets slowly start turning direct with Mercury, on August 18th.

The Summer is a good time to sit back and reflect on your life, so take it slow and hopefully, you will see that things just aren’t moving as quickly so you can take your time. Let things unfold naturally during this slowed down time, and don’t push things. There’s no point in pushing something if it’s not going to happen from the start or if it is going to be a mess, and that is exactly what Retrograde planets can bring. Perspective is everything folks, take this time and enjoy it, look at it as a time to relax or take a little vacay time, this will help you take some of the pressure off yourself and your life. Try not to worry! Zen out and just allow the energies to be what they are now. You can’t change anything about it, take it from me observing Retrograde time over the last 20 something years, and seeing so many folks try to push it and do things that aren’t really working for them, or trying something totally different and have nothing but problems that lasted months after the Retrograde cycles were over. It’s not worth the frustration!

  • Astro Outlook for July
    July 8th – Sun Trines Neptune, this will be a nice energy that will stick around for some of the week, so enjoy! We can feel a bit lazy but our intuition is super strong and our dreams can be vivid and meaningful.
  • July 9th – Mercury Square Jupiter, watch your mouth again, Mercury rules over how we communicate and if you get frustrated once this energy appears you could seriously go off.
  • July 11th, Venus Trine Uranus, this can be a nice energy to meet someone new in or just out of the blue, and for couples that are already together, you just might be able to put some spark back into your relationships.
  • July 12th, Sun Opposite Pluto, this can be a good day but don’t let your ego or mind get in your way. You might feel amazingly powerful, but you can end up throwing your weight around and have major ego battles with others.
  • July 14th, Venus Trine Saturn, this is when we can make sure our committed relationships are secure, and when longer term commitments can be made.

A New Moon comes together on Thursday, July 12 in the sign of Cancer, this is actually the first of the Summer Eclipses!
This New Moons message is all about letting go of something, as it’s a time to transform yourself and get rid of what is holding you back from happiness.

This Solar Eclipse is going to be very powerful, it represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of a new one. A regular New Moon’s influence can last for a month after it comes together, but a Solar Eclipse influence can last from three to six months. However, the Cosmos is busy and there are two Solar Eclipses this summer. The next one is on August 11, and it will be even stronger or more powerful than this one.

The New Moon Eclipses are an ideal time to plant those seeds of intentions for any future goals you desire, it is time to manifest folks! Wherever, this Eclipse falls in your own personal “Astrology Birth Chart,” will be the area of your life that you will have the best opportunity for something new or improved to start, by the end of the year or even into next year.

The Eclipse on July 12 might just push you to do more with your life. Therefore, it can create chaos or crisis if you get caught off guard. But hopefully, you are learning now just by reading this blog, and you will gain enough insight and avoid a crisis altogether. So I do hope you take this information and do something amazing with your life, by working with the energies of the Eclipses. Please share this blog with friends so they can understand how it all works and use this info too.

If you aren’t too sure where the Eclipse falls in your personal “Astrology Birth Chart” and just how it will impact you, then you can order a Regular Reading, and I will give you that info during our session, or a “One Question Reading” and I will send you a Mini-Report (just about this Eclipse information) that’s generated just for you based off your chart information. For more info and prices please message me here on Facebook or email me at healingruby@gmail.com

It’s a great time to Manifest Relationships!
Many of you are looking for new love in some way and some folks may even meet a soulmate during this time. Already existing relationships might just enjoy more stability. If you are in a stressful relationship than this is a good time to work through your problems and find solutions. But if for whatever reason your relationship isn’t already solid and doesn’t have staying power, these Eclipses may just separate you too help you figure it all out.

For those of you who are impatient when it comes to manifesting, please keep “Setting Those Intentions” and making out those “Wish Lists.” The things you want in this life don’t always come immediately, sometimes it just takes time! The Universe doesn’t always just give us what we want, but the whole point of “Setting Intentions” is to be put on a path in the right direction towards your desires. So if you are consistent and continue to keep asking and focusing on what it is you want and not what you don’t, you will either get put on the right path or get what you want in time. So do your work folks, or it won’t work! Period.

There is no magic cure to stop these energies but you can do work to help ease off the tension, no matter your beliefs, take some time to go inward and connect to your higher-self or a higher power and ask for what it is you want, and for help during this wild crazy time. If you need help through this or a guide to ease your tension than I am here to help, get with me about a Reading session and we will come up with a plan.

Good Luck!

Mercury in Leo – Express Yourself

Standard

Astro Alert
Mercury in Leo
Express Yourself

For All Zodiac Signs:
Mercury enters the sign of proud and expressive Leo today! This transit will be in this sign until September 5th, which is longer than usual due to Mercury going Retrograde, from July 25 through August 18, which is usually a challenging time. But this blog is about Mercury’s time in the sign of Leo, which affects all of us!

With Mercury in the sign of Leo our thinking is very strong, so we can feel more confident and tend to demand respect, and can get quite upset if we feel someone is talking down to us or is not listening to what we are saying. One thing we should be careful of especially once the Sun Enters Leo around July 22nd is just how aggressive, pushy, and over bearing we can get. There will be a whole lot of Leo energy swirling around and this means some folks won’t know how to handle this fiery energy, so be mindful and if you feel like your going to Roar take a break and get space!

It’s a good time to focus on your goals, and the more magnificent the goal, the better. This cycle can help you organize your thoughts to concentrate for long periods of time, which can help you meet your goals. Our minds our full of energy and our will power is strong, we are full of perseverance, and have a stronger sense of purpose.

Our minds may just naturally go to the positive, so we can be more kind, easy-going, and cheerful, even though on occasion we can be quite opinionating, stubborn, arrogant, and to forceful.

The little actions we take do really matter in this energy, but the details aren’t as important because we want to get to the point and have some fun. We are much more expressive and a little dramatic, and can do well when we get an opportunity to express ourselves, so giving speeches or telling stories can go quite well.

We also can be very charming, convincing, and persuasive because we are full of confidence and pride, especially when we speak or write. Therefore, we should be mindful to listen to people to hear them and not just to reply, because we might want to chat a lot more then usual. Also watch for gossip, it is all too easy to start talking about other folks during this time, and we can get wrapped up in what we’re talking about and end up over sharing with the wrong people.

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

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

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

Full Moon – Inner Struggle

Standard
1608395_3830615699150_1900549090_n
 Full Moon
“Inner-Struggle”
 A Full Moon occurs in the sign of Capricorn on Wednesday/Thursday, June 27/28.

This Full Moon’s effects last for up to two weeks until the Eclipse comes together on July 12, that’s two weeks to make some positive changes.

This affects all the Zodiac Signs, this isn’t about being a Capricorn.

Exact times when the Full Moon begins.
June 28 12:53 AM Eastern 
June 27 11:53 PM Central
June 27 10:53 PM Mountain 
June 27 9:53 PM Pacific

A Full Moon is when the Moon reaches its highest peak, and creates a fertile energy as it brings in endings, especially around certain people, situations, or things that aren’t working for us! But it also starts New Beginnings! This is a highly emotional time full of romance and relationships issues. We usually feel more intuitive during the Full Moon, with wild dreams and psychic visions. There can be sudden random Ah-Ha moments that you should really pay attention to and even investigate, as the truth comes out during this time.

The Full Moons light illuminates important paths for us so we can see which ones we should be heading down. This energy takes us from the unconscious to the conscious mind, and we are made aware of what has been hidden, kept secret, repressed, or otherwise unknown. These new feelings and revelations are emotional ones, and our emotions are ready to burst out! It’s a time to express ourselves and to let things out of our system. Of course, you may want to exercise caution while doing so, as what is coming out is new and has not been thought out yet, so it’s not going to sound rational unless you think about it first!

A Full Moon is actually one of the tensest aspects between the Sun and the Moon every month! This energy can make some of you feel quite nervous and anxiety-ridden, but for others, the Full Moon is an exciting and adventurous time. It’s like watching two people ride a roller coaster, there’s always one person screaming in fear wanting to get off the ride, and then the other person is laughing and having the time of their life! That’s exactly how most of us are affected by the Full Moon’s influence, you either love the energy and feel excited or you get nervous and tense.

Some folks will have to deal with challenging situations and negative people around the last week of June. During this Full Moon, issues can seem much more intense and worse than what they actually are. Which is extremely important to remember!

~This Full Moon has the Sun in Cancer opposing the Moon in Capricorn.
The Sign of Capricorn is about taking responsibility and your career, public image, and reputation. The Sign of Cancer is about home, family, and taking care of yourself and others both. The closer we get to the Full Moon the more Saturn the “Lord of Karma” will affect us. Saturn is trying to tell us it’s time to decide if what we are doing is worth it or not!

The Universe is sending out signs and messages this week whether you should continue on a certain path you are already on or leave it behind! We must find a balance between these two energies, as this Full Moon wants us to balance our commitment to our families and our career. There’s been something building up inside of you already, and now is the time to express that energy as the Cosmos is bringing on the pressure so you will let it out!

Over the next few weeks, we will understand just how this Full Moon affected our lives, but for now we can’t just sit back and be quiet, we have to allow ourselves to fully be seen and heard in one way or another. The Full Moon is about being vulnerable, it forces us out of our comfort zone in one way or another, we are being made to learn how to be ok with trusting the Universe to protect us while letting our emotions come out, but the trick is to learn how to do it safely and without anger or harmful side effects.

Writing down how you’re feeling during a Full Moon is a great way to do just that, it is mostly safe and allows you the safe space you need to express how you are truly feeling. That’s why I always mention Setting Intentions with the Full Moon and its energies. Doing this healing work every month can truly set you free in ways you haven’t experienced. Starting Wednesday, June 27th around lunchtime, once the Moon shifts into the sign of Capricorn you can sit down and write out how you are feeling and have a heart to heart with the Universe, and see how it changes your life. I expect you to be pleasantly surprised if you commit to this kind of work every month.

This Full Moon can be a very strong dramatic turning point for us, being in Capricorn the sign of completion and consequences, which is ruled by rule-maker Saturn. This Moon is closely joining Saturn the “Lord of Karma” during this time, and this can mean this lunation will have a strong sobering tone to it. And we may not feel quite like celebrating like usual under the Full Moon energy. But I say CELEBRATE anyway, there are many other Cosmic Connections happening which we can feel grateful for. This energy can help us gain clarity about our priorities and helps us realign with the energies of what is most meaningful to us in life. Which in turn, can help us focus on our jobs, relationships, and other pressing issues that need our attention.

This Full Moon is making quite a positive aspect with Saturn and Uranus both, which means we can have some reality checks for sure, but we can make this new information work for us. This can bring unexpected opportunities and breakthroughs. There might be a tough choice to make, or we may feel pressured to make some kind of change. These influences help us out of the heaviness we are feeling, especially if we make the effort, then you can change some of the things in your life that are no longer working for you.

You might just meet people randomly or out of the blue, and some of these encounters might be romantic! Because Saturn is Retrograde now, it’s likely these folks are Karmic or Past Life Connections. This does not mean you’re meant to be together! It is a time of Retrograde planets all over the place, so take your sweet time. With the Moon making aspects to Uranus we can leave toxic relationships or jobs now, it’s a time to Break Free from what isn’t serving your higher purpose. You must want this, however, but you can Break Free from most anything under this Full Moon!

If you’re feeling depressed, sad, or restricted just know these feelings will pass, before going off and making any major life changes. My best advice is to take advantage of this Full Moon energy and Release something or someone from your life, as it’s time for something to go! Under these strong, potent energies you can let go of toxic people in general or bad behaviors that are harming you.

Chiron the wounded healer is in the sign of the Warrior Aries and is making tense squares to the Sun, Moon, and Saturn during this Full Moon. This energy can stir up some old emotional wounds folks! It may have to do with your confidence, courage, power, and assertion. Frustrations and anger can come out, and since Aires is ruled by assertive Mars which is also in Retrograde, and we can end up tapping into a very deep place within ourselves where we’ve held repressed hurt feelings or emotional baggage. Mars meets up with the South Node which is our Karmic Past! But Chiron is making a more harmonious aspect to Mercury in Cancer and the North Node of Destiny in Leo, which leads us to a path for healing purposes.

With all of this happening it is advised to not over assert yourself just to protect those buried wounds. Instead, Speak Your Truth, but with Love and Compassion, it’s ok to be vulnerable, it doesn’t mean you’re a victim, it means you trust yourself. Hold a space in your heart to explore this energy, and don’t allow anger to take a hold of you! Anger is only fear in the end in one way or another.

Have a Safe and Blessed Full Moon.

Mars In Retrograde – “A Slow Down”

Standard

Rubys Astro Alert
Mars Retrograde in Aquarius
“A Slow Down”
Well here we are folks, yet another planet is going into Retrograde! This time it’s Mars. Unlike when Mercury goes Retrograde, and the world’s electronics tend to go wonky, we will need to pay extra attention to our “actions” because Mars rules over our passions, drive, motivation, and physical movement!
With Mars in Retrograde moving in any direction can be difficult. This is a time when we seem to struggle with getting tasks done or we leave things incomplete. Instead of moving around physically, we tend to travel more mentally. It’s a good time to redo, renovate, and repair things instead of pushing to move forward and taking on new projects!
~Mars will be in its Retrograde cycle from June 26th through August 27th!
The planet Mars moves fast so it only goes Retrograde every two years! It’s probably a good idea to think first before starting anything and when taking certain actions, because this cycle tends to lower our energy levels and can cause frustrations as obstacles come up around whatever we make an effort to get done. Most Astrologers agree that during Mars Retrograde we should be extra cautious and if at all possible avoid activities that are considered to be risky or demanding. Lots of folks end up in minor accidents or fail to judge a situation correctly during this time.
Even during this Planetary cycle, life goes on!
For 11 weeks while Mars is Retrograde, we will have to make important decisions even though it’s not the best time. So for example, if you’re unemployed, you’re going to want to accept a new job offer. During Mars Retro you probably will feel the same lack of energy or vitality in any part of your life your take on. So for this reason alone, it’s not the best time to start anything brand new, whether it’s a job, relationship, (sexual or otherwise) or even an argument. If you’ve already started something before this cycle began, it is time to slow down, cool yourself off, and reassess what you want and desire for now before taking any further action.
It’s also not a great time to enter a sexual relationship, committed or not. But most of us don’t want to be celibate, so you probably won’t be. But if you’re planning any important events make sure to pick a time when the planetary influences are working to your advantage, and for some, the Retrogrades are a better time, but let me point out that it’s rare!! But if you pay attention to the planets or have an Astrologer on hand you’ll learn how different planetary cycles affect you.
The bottom line is while Mars is Retrograde its energy is lacking, and this is the planet of Physical Energy, so this is why starting any “new” sexual relationships are seen as being an issue. It’s doubtful once this cycle is over your desire for someone new will continue, or they might feel differently and you can end up breaking off entirely or worse being “ghosted” by your new lover.
However, it’s actually a good time to figure out what you do want around the parts of our lives that Mars rules over such as what makes you feel passionate, driven, sexual, or angry! Even if you have to wait until after this cycle is over to go after it! This is a highly intense energy, which means it’s a good time to wait things out because most anything you start during this cycle will be short-lived. The Universe might grab your attention and lead you towards someone, but this doesn’t mean you should act on it immediately! Take a step back from starting anything brand-new or making any permanent plans until the end of August when Mars is back on track heading in the right direction once again.
This change in energy isn’t to reach a final destination point, it’s not something that lasts, so we shouldn’t change course or stray too far from our normal routines. This includes starting new jobs or relationships! Even though at first it may seem amazing, later on once Mars is back to normal things can happen. It’s important not to jump or to be impulsive just to be with someone new or start up something completely different. We should take into consideration all the planets that are currently in their Retrograde cycles and how this affects us and our lives.
Timing is important even if you work very hard and feel like you’re prepared to go after what you want to accomplish, but if your timing is off you may not get things done or succeed. So for most of us, it’s best to wait until after Mars goes direct on August 27, and start new things at that time.
It just might be a time that when we must work on adjusting our expectations and calmly moving through our frustrations that get in the way of what it is we really want to accomplish. Therefore, if you have activities you want to start, take a step back and re-consider them first. Take this time to pause and reflect on your life and what your next moves will be, then once Mars is back direct you’ll be ready to go!

Neptune Retrograde – “See through the Illusions”

Standard

yh
Neptune Retrograde
By Ruby

“See through the Illusions”

With so many planets now in what’s called “Retrograde” Cycles, things are going to be strange, off, and confusing! The planets currently involved are Saturn, Jupiter, and soon Neptune and Mars will join them going into their own backstroke Retrograde periods. Then in the first week of July Chiron, the “wounded healer” will also enter its Retro phase, which is a whole different story to explain another day.

We are already starting to see folks resurface from our past and some of them will be our ex’s! Please remember just because they’ve come back around isn’t necessarily a sign from the Cosmos that you are destined to be together, it simply can be there’s something you need to say or experience together. Some of you might have to deal with someone that was more of a feminine influence in your life at one point, perhaps from your past but not necessarily and this person can cause you some problems, so be wary if someone you know comes back around and is a woman, or has taken care of you in some maternal manner.

Unfortunately, we are already in some sort of Astrological portal where lots of folks decide to leave the planet and crossover. So you will see or hear of many stars, officials, and entertainers passing. We went through this cycle years ago where lots of famous folks seemed to check out, and then we experienced a shorter version of this same energy last year when we lost so many famous folks like Prince. So through the beginning of September, you will probably hear more sad news about famous people making their transition. I should also mention this can affect locally famous people as well. Keep in mind sometimes being famous just means being very popular among your peers.

The other issue is there’s a strong rise of suicides happening. Sigh. With Neptune going Retrograde, this energy can be experienced so deeply that its influence makes some folks not only want to escape, but it pulls on them to leave or get out of this physical reality in some way. The shadow side of Neptune’s traits are illusions, dreams, escapism, denial, and delusions, and its influence often is associated with addiction like drug overdoses!

Neptune Retrograde begins June 18th!
But we are already in the “Shadow Period” which just means the planet is slowing down to go Retrograde, so this energy is clearly already affecting us. So let’s focus on this period and the spiritual journey we should be on during this time.

Neptune Retrograde starts June 18 and runs through November 24.
During this time we should focus more on working together towards common goals, as this will help bring in better more positive energies. This is a wonderful time for Spiritual Growth, no matter what your beliefs may be! Neptune rules over our spirit and spiritual journey in this life, and our spiritual growth and expansion.

This particular influence is designed by the Cosmos so you’ll take a time out from your busy life and focus more so on your spiritual journey, to find out truths and expand yourself spiritually. You don’t have to be involved in a spiritual quest the whole time Neptune is in Retrograde, but it’s highly recommended that you do something to connect with your spiritual self. Some examples of this would be taking classes that promote healing of the spirit, be it through meditation, energy healing, perhaps journaling exercises, or taking a yoga class. These really are just a few examples of the many ways you can connect to your spirit or higher self!

A Neptune Retrograde phase can be a serious wake-up call!
It tears down the illusions and deceptions that you have formed in your life and that has perhaps made your visions cloudy. Fantasies will be magnified during this time. Life is certainly about to get real folks, and the reality you realize leads to breakthroughs. If you’ve been lying to yourself about something this Retrograde cycle can help you see the truth.

A client I know had been struggling to stay in a relationship with a married man for nearly four years, when she went through the last Neptune Retrograde, he actually went back to his wife for good, and she realized there would be no divorce after all, there was never a secure relationship in the future with him in the first place! And even though she was heartbroken by this truth, she was also set free to get out a relationship that was based all on lies and that would never last, she has since moved on and has met a wonderful man who she’s been dating for some time now, and I think she can expect Wedding Bells in her future soon!

Another client of mine realized he wasn’t going to get a promotion he had been wanting from the small family-owned company he had worked at for years. He was looked over and that was a tough blow. But Neptune Retrograde helped him see this company would never come through and promote him because he came across an email from the boss that they were only promoting their family members, which he wasn’t. The further you are from the truth the bigger the messages will be. He decided to apply for another job elsewhere and since then has moved up in his new company and really is much happier now.

Warning!!
Neptune’s Retrograde phase is going to bring some challenges and this can make you feel bad about yourself. It’s the worst time to have a pity party, however, and actually feeling bad can cause some folks to get too depressed and make very dangerous choices as we’ve already been seeing. There’s a very thin line between what’s real and illusion during Neptune in Retrograde! And as we try to escape our current reality these lines can be blurred and we can slip and do things we never would normally do. You can take risks and end up in bad situations if you are not careful and a rare few have lost a lot due to these behaviors.

So if you feel bad please talk to someone, anyone, just reach out and don’t allow yourself to get sucked into this energy. And remember one point past “I Quit”, is always breakthrough!! Which means in simple terms most folks who have tried to commit suicide and weren’t successful will tell you they realized that their problems could and would get better the moment they took the action to take their life, they felt regret!

Use this Neptune Retrograde time for the better, for spiritual growth and expansion. Get involved with other folks in things like Metaphysics, Astrology, and Energy Healing. Tap into your higher-self and maybe take some spiritual or cosmic classes. Join groups or causes that seem interesting or that support your beliefs in some way, stay connected to others for support and don’t do this time alone!

If you’re not too sure what you can do to tap into your spirituality, your “Astrology Birth Chart” can show you what part of your personal Chart “Neptune Retrograde” is cruising through, and what part of your life it will be affecting.

If you would like a Reading on how this Neptune in Retrograde will affect you and learn how to follow your own spiritual journey that’s suited just to your own needs. Order a “One Question Reading” from me remarkably priced just about Neptune’s Retro phase and you!
I will do the necessary research and tell you all about your Neptune Retrograde experience and the spiritual journey you should be headed down.

URANUS ENTERS TAURUS 2018

URANUS ENTERS TAURUS
Self-Worth, Values, & Pleasure
by Rubys Readings

 

In just a few short days the planet Uranus is making a massive shift into the sign of Taurus, this planet only changes Signs once every 7 years, and this energy will and already is affecting all of us! Read below to learn more.

Uranus is in Taurus …
from May 15, 2018, to November 6, 2018,
and then from March 6, 2019, to July 7, 2025,
and then from November 7, 2025, to April 25, 2026

Uranus the planet of quick and sudden changes, chaos, and liberation is changing signs for the first time since 1942, into the sign of Taurus on May 15th. For the next seven years, Uranus will reside in the sign of Taurus. The fixed signs of the Zodiac will be the most strongly affected so Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius, both Sun & Rising Signs will experience some serious surprises. But this aspect will affect all the Signs of the Zodiac. This will not come back again in our lifetime! So it’s very important to understand what’s happening.

Uranus takes around 84 years to go through all 12 Signs of the Zodiac, and this is a slow-moving planet and its effects are long-lasting! The changes or disruption this erratic aspect brings in will usually affect the area of your life that needs some kind of change. It really depends on you, if your personal experience with Uranus will be challenging or not, you must embrace and not resist whatever changes it brings to your life. This planet’s influence makes us feel more restless about feeling stuck or restricted, but it also helps take us out of the worst situations that we might be stuck in right now.

Over the last seven years, Uranus was in fiery Aries, and most Sun & Rising Sign Aries folks can tell you its been a wild ride! With Uranus involved the motto is “expect the unexpected!”

With Uranus in Aries over the last 7 years all of us have dealt first hand with wake up calls, Ah-Ha moments, jolts, twists & turns, and mind-blowing changes! It’s been a crazy seven years folks! But now with Uranus in Taurus life will grow calmer and hopefully more stable. Now even if your not a Taurus (born April 21st – May 21st), you will still be affected by this aspect in one way or another! Each and every one of us has the sign of Taurus somewhere in our personal “Astrology Birth Chart!” Whatever area it’s moving through in your Astro Birth Chart is where you can expect to experience the biggest and most radical changes, and maybe something unexpected.

“This once in a lifetime aspect creates major shifts that we only get to experience one time around.”

Understanding Astrology gives us an advantage, especially during major cosmic shifts such as this one. Some of you will see significant gains during this cycle that will be amazing and wonderful. But there will be both strong highs and low’s as well so this can be intense for some of you, but exciting! As many of you have already been experiencing this shift, it can be quite intimidating.

Some of you stand to benefit greatly from Uranus’s shift into Taurus. Often the surprises coming in will be something you didn’t anticipate or realize could be possible. Make sure and take some notes about your adventures during this cycle, so you can look at it after 2026, and see all that has changed in your life once it’s over.

Personal changes caused by this aspect:

Uranus only changes signs every 7 years, and it creates major changes and shifts on both personal and global levels. Its lessons are about revelations, revolution, and doing what’s right for the group!

During this cycle, we tend to shake things up and bring about some major changes, especially around what we enjoy or the simple pleasures in our lives, especially with Uranus in the sign of pleasure-seeking Taurus. What we own, value, and arrange in our lives comes into focus more so now. Our views on financial spending and around our personal possessions may get changed up in new and exciting ways. Our focus shifts to the mundane and our financial status, it’s a time to be progressive and savvy in both business and practical matters. Get creative and innovative around how you can be more comfortable in your everyday world, there will be opportunities to change things to accommodate such goals.

There can be fears or self-doubt around how we express our sensuality, how we view our body type, and how we take care of ourselves and practice self-love and pampering. Since our values might be more unconventional now under this influence, we could end up challenging what we once valued!

The Feminist movement is going to only grow that much stronger and larger, as Uranus is the planet of revolution and freedom and Taurus is ruled by the Goddess herself, Venus! Which represent all woman and Woman’s Rights! So this cause will continue to be that much more important to both woman and men.

We seek freedom and independence during this aspect, but issues can arise if we only focus on material pursuits to distract us from reality. Finding a way to detach ourselves from our physical attachments or things will bring a much more desirable outcome. The lesson is to free ourselves from certain material things and get more organic now. The way we eat, what we eat, and how we grow our food is all going to be altered for the improvement of our planet. We are about to see an upsurge of concern for the earth and a societal push towards more ethically conscious industries. Learning how to grow our food is going to become increasingly more important and necessity during this time.

There also can be some major changes around money, valuables, possessions, and income, which can lead to rearranging our priorities and values. During this cycle money or income will be earned in more non-traditional ways. In the world of finances and business, there will be major progressive ideas like you have never seen before, as we move through this cycle through 2026!

Remember Uranus rules much of technology and the internet. There will be new ways to handle doing business and how we make, view, and handle money! (Online & Electronic Currency is going to grow bigger.) Just know that our income is a direct reflection of how we see ourselves, so our self-worth is going to need some work during this time, and it might get a bit rocky as we seek to find what is authentic about ourselves.

No matter what we have been through life is going to change in many ways, so try to stay positive and focus on the new and exciting adventure we have just begun! Best of luck!!

May 2018 Monthly Horoscope
by Ruby

April was a seriously intense month on the Astrological front and this was reflected in our everyday lives. The planetary shifts we have experienced have been transformational, but there is more to come now as we begin 1, and hopefully, these energies will be more on the calmer side.

The powerful Full Moon in Scorpio is slowly breaking apart now but was one of the most intense Full Moon’s of 2018. And with so many planets going in and out of Retrograde (backward) like Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto we are feeling it! The odd part is we are feeling this energy more internally, due to the planets that are Retrograde, and many of you aren’t choosing to express how you’re feeling. Do what you can to express your emotions during this highly emotionally charged time.

The first week of May might seem almost quiet once the Full Moon energy breaks apart, but the New Moon in Taurus on May 15th can be a catalyst that brings in major changes in our personal relationship with our physical reality. The weeks ahead will likely be some of the most important moments of 2018.

The New Moon comes together on May 15th, 2018! Just hours after the Sun and Moon connect, the New Moon occurs. And on the same day, Uranus the planet of change, chaos, and liberation also changes signs for the first time since 1942, into the sign of Taurus, this starts on May 15th and goes until November 6th!

Uranus is the planet of high vibrational energy and revolution, so as you can imagine having Uranus so active on the day of the New Moon is a pretty big deal. Note: this will affect all the signs, and not just Aries and Taurus!

Many of you are already experiencing the effects of Uranus’s shift into Taurus and may not even realize it. The first of the Earth Signs, Taurus represents our basic survival needs such as food, clothing, shelter, and money. Since Uranus has been in the Sign of Aries for so long now, it helped to create that spark as it’s fire breathed new life into all sorts of situations and projects. But the sign of Taurus helps to sustain life, so themes around manifesting, building, and farming and anything earthy will be our primary focus now. Ruled by the planet Venus, Taurus also favors anything beautiful, pleasurable, and sensual. We are not just here to exist or be of service under Uranus in Taurus like we have been doing all these years with Uranus in Aries. Under the sign symbolized by the Bull, Taurus, we are here to live in Earth’s beauty and abundance of nature and to give and receive.

The Sign of Taurus is very much associated with the planet Earth, and since our human existence is literally hurting our home planet, we will see this reflected back to us so we can heal. Therefore, Uranus’s entry into Taurus can be dramatic, mostly because this happens just a few hours after the New Moon comes together.

So other planetary connections will be triggered, and one of those connections can create some serious volatile energy right around the time when the New Moon makes a tense Square to aggressive Mars in Capricorn, while Uranus is the very last degree of Aries, and this is right before it’s shift into Taurus, and that is a very strong placement and time. So make sure to be careful about how you react to folks from May 13th through 17th, because sometimes it’s just not worth a reaction at all.

Uranus stays in the sign of Taurus until November 6, 2018, which gives us some time to get things settled back down, and work on grounding!

Then Uranus actually goes Retrograde and throws itself back in the sign of fiery Aries on November 7th through March 6th, 2019, so we already know how to handle Uranus in Aries, but in Retrograde it’s a whole new story. The urge to start fresh and break free from restrictive attitudes or circumstances, and to totally redesign an area of our lives (or even our personalities), and to gain freedom through independence is strong with Uranus in Aries. I will explain that more as we get closer to that time.

Uranus finally will re-enter Taurus on March 7th, 2019, for a seven-year journey that won’t end until April 26, 2026. Whatever events or changes that are caused by Uranus in Taurus were probably already started a long time ago.

On May 16th, Mars enters emotionally detached Aquarius, through August 12, this can be a bit unforgiving and aggressive energy. It’s also a dynamic yet erratic energy, we can try to achieve our goals but in a very impulsive manner, and our anger levels can be a bit impersonal. However, we are less concerned with personal power and are more team-players, and cooperative during this time. We are highly attracted to unconventional methods and tend to approach problems more with our minds, as we feel more detached from our emotions.

The Sun drifts into Gemini’s quick-witted and alert presence for a month starting on May 20, making you intensely curious to learn new things. Expand upon the knowledge base you tapped into earlier in the month or learn something totally new. You can be quite the quick study of this energy. Everyone is going to feel this energy, so life might move extremely fast, take a lot of notes during this time and learn to take breaks.

A beautiful Jupiter-Neptune Trine comes exact on the 25th of May, this is the major planetary influence this month and lasts from May 10 to June 12. This encourages hope, generosity, and a sense of community spirit. You may start seeking out a spiritual quest to find the truth during this time. There are going to be many destined encounters with teachers and light-workers of all kinds, like Guru’s, Priests, Psychic’s, and Healers. Someone might even come to you for spiritual guidance. Enlightenment comes through dreams, visions, meditation, and deep spiritual pursuits. It will be more difficult to ignore the sick, poor, and needy during this time, as we are reminded that we are here to take care of each other! As your morals or standards vibrate higher, you will want to find ways to do selfless acts to helps those that need you. Animal and environmental charities will be on our radar even more so than usual. There will be more interest in human rights and refugees, and other innocent victims of war and greed, as social justice will be more important.

Some folks may feel a strong urge to get creative and find an outlet for their enthusiasm through music, dance, art, or theater. Following our dreams for success without having to sacrifice our ego or material possessions is part of this influence, and being wealthy or famous might not be what makes you truly feel happy and content. Romance will be strong and love will be in the air during this time, as others can find you extremely attractive!

On May 29th the Full Moon comes together in the sign of Sagittarius, this energy is all about the adventure or journey! It opens up the greater truths and everything we need to explore our personal freedom. The Sun in Gemini will be opposing the Moon in Sagittarius so our minds will be lit up, as the fiery Sagittarius Moon illuminates our souls wisdom, and helps bring forward information we know on a deep cellular and soul level, it’s the info we carry in our DNA we are talking about here, including past life memories, it is the information we carry deep in our hearts and in our bodies. This very special lunation inspires us to seek a higher perspective on our life’s path, which opens doors to new possibilities and helps us create our future!

Just a little side note:

A special point in the Cosmos is going to be activated on the day the New Moon comes together, this is all about feminine wisdom and power! If you thought the New Women’s movement had peaked with #metoo or #timesup, think again! May is a good time to think about your place in this world as a woman or if you are a man, around the woman you love and support, and your feminine side. Ask yourself where you want to be! If you’re not feeling inspired by life, then now is the time to do something about that and perhaps join a cause that supports your beliefs of course.
