The Sun has shifted into imaginative and compassionate Pisces on February 18, 2020, and remains there through March 20, 2020. So it’s officially Pisces Season. This energy is about connecting to your spiritual highest-self. It’s a sensitive, wistful, compassionate time. We are strongly in tune with our powers of intuition and emotions. Making decisions or commitments may not be easy under the influence, but tapping into our intuition is.
While the Sun is in Pisces our inner muse must be nurtured and connected too, this helps us heal and move forward. The veils between this world and other realms come down now and boundaries dissolve so we can feel energetically connected to other people and their energies.
It’s important to be kind to yourself and others during this time, and surround yourself with loving positive energy.
We are plugged into everything around us, because the veils between this physical world and other spiritual realms have dissolved. As those boundaries come down we must make sure to “shield” ourselves spiritually and physically. So if you consider yourself to already be a sensitive, Psychic, Healer, Empath, or whatever you call it, might I suggest putting up some sort of spiritual shields to block out outside energies.
Pay attention to when you sense someone else’s feelings rather than your own and don’t attach to them. We’re more aware of the energies around us, and we can be like sponges absorbing all of what we experience. We’re more sensitive and emotional during this time, so we tend to express ourselves in more creative spiritual ways.
It’s a good time to rid yourself of any fears or doubts you’ve been holding on to, so let go of illusions and daydreams that have no real way of ever coming true! Fantasies are just that, they are not reality. Instead, practice connecting to your higher-self through spiritual practices, and by getting involved in creative endeavors.
Allow this energy to flow and just be. Get involved in things like music and energy healing, or doing anything creative or entertaining. This can help us feel more vital, and raises our personal vibration. It’s important to take time-outs and listen to our intuition now, but if we choose to ignore these feelings or messages from the Universe, we can become anxiety-ridden and easily frustrated.
Our bodies and minds sync deeply together now, so try to stay with the beat of the Universe, as Pisces energy is more ethereal and dreamy feeling. Our dream world both awake and asleep can be very strong, pay attention and take notes. Those who have crossed often show up to visit during this time, (especially, since we are just started in a Mercury Retrograde cycle, also in the sign of Pisces!) as these energies tend to bring back things from the past.
The more shadow side to this energy is we can feel more like escaping our reality, so this can be done with drugs or substances that only harm us in the end. We are more vulnerable to the world’s harsh reality and energies, which can make us feel emotionally down and out. Some folks may start feeling so down that they get depressed by this influence. It’s important to connect to your spiritual self (not to sound like a broken record) to keep your vibrational energy higher and avoid these pitfalls.
To do well in this energy you should allow things to just be, and stay aware of your surroundings. Ask yourself what your resisting and stop or it will persist.
Mercury goes Retrograde on February 16, 2020 and runs through March 9th, 2020.
Sometimes the Universe gives us a break even though it doesn’t always feel that way. One thing the Cosmos always does is create balance. So the energies get slowed down a bit so we can have the opportunity to catch up. Mercury in Retrograde (Rx for short) is that time out, it’s an opportunity to get caught up with life, and a time to unplug and take a long deep breath. It’s also a great time to take off from work if at all possible, maybe taking a little vacay and focus on reworking anything that needs to be done, or finishing projects that were never finished to completion, especially since Mercury rules over our minds and thoughts. When this fast-moving planet goes into Retrograde we start to perceive things in a very different and unique way.
Mercury in Rx like all Retrograde planets, as is happening for a reason. This isn’t some new Astrological fad! Planets have always gone into Retrograde cycles and will continue to appear to move backwards in the future every year. So every once in a while we get a chance to pause or stop, and take a break from our overloaded plugged in lives. This is the time to review your life and the paths you’re on. What this Mercury in Rx cycle does is help us to breathe, be still, relax, and review. The main thing to understand as this cycles energy takes hold, is that it’s a time to review your life and redo anything that needs to be done. It is time to re-search, re-think, re-visit, re-connect, and to get re-organized.
What Not To Do during Mercury in Retrograde:
– Don’t start brand new projects
– Do not get into arguments, avoid critical folks and tense people or situations.
– Do Not Sign Contracts or New Agreements
– Avoid Travel
– Do Not take misunderstandings personal. Our communication is foggy and cloudy.
What To do during Mercury in Retrograde:
– Redo, Rework, Review, Research, so basically go over things again and wrap up old business and projects.
– Double Check the Facts and any info gathered.
– Revisit what you need to, like your work.
– Reconnect with the folks that matter if you’ve had issues or not.
– Backup Computers and any data you want to keep saved, usually start this process two weeks prior to the actual Retro Cycle.
– Reorganize your daily life routines.
– Reflect and practice spiritual work.
– Release what’s been holding you back or blocking you, let go of what no longer is working especially in your intimate relationships.
There can be positive things that come from a Mercury in Retrograde cycle that you just didn’t think about before. For example, throwing out old stuff that you no longer need or use, and organizing your life. Stay focused on any past opportunities and reconsider them now, see if they’re still an option, and try to let go of any computer glitches or electronic snafus you might be experiencing. Don’t get angry, or to frustrated.
Mercury is currently in the sign of Pisces, this is compassionate but strange energy. Therefore, we will be in for some odd twists and turns along the way, as we look for ways to escape our reality. The sign of Pisces is after all the sign of the fish, so it lives in the healing energy of water, and Mercury rules the mind, the two don’t mix real well. If we take this cycle to learn how to feel and listen to our intuition, and to be more kind and compassionate to others and ourselves, than we can make things happen once it’s over! As we go back to revisit and revise our plans, we can make some interesting new discoveries, but we may just have to feel our way through this cycle and not rely on good old fashioned common sense so much.
It’s important to keep a paper trail of whatever you purchase. Mercury is known as the “trickster” of the Zodiac, so it likes to play tricks that make us change our minds, and this causes confusion. Lots of people come back around from our past including ex-lovers and friends. Mercury’s influence seems to bring these chance meetings together. But that doesn’t mean it’s fated or destined to be together. It is usually about some sort of healing.
Our focus should be on re-organizing and reflecting. We see the world a little differently during this time, and through these filters we can have some very important inner revelations. It may not be as easy to communicate under this influence, but remember not to try and rationalize everything. Logic is out and intuition is in during Mercury Rx.
Mercury Rx periods can be times of heightened inner-awareness, so practicing things like meditation, keeping a journal, reworking old plans, reviewing, or reconnecting to your past can be quite helpful. Mercury Rx is also a powerful time to study, particularly for returning to old studies and re-learning or refreshing knowledge around a subject that’s already been taken.
This Mercury in Retrograde cycle can also help you think back to a part of your recent past, and reconnect you to an old dream or goal to follow through on once its over. But make sure to write it all down for now. Someone from your past might get a hold of you for a second chance or opportunity, but that doesn’t mean it’s meant to be, usually, it doesn’t work out for the long-run. But it’s nice to reconnect and perhaps sort out any unresolved issues you might have.
Because we are perceiving things in a different way, the truth tends to come out, and you just might notice or find some kind of detail you overlooked or didn’t catch before, which can be very helpful. This cycle can bring clarity and help you move past any restrictions or blocks standing in your way. Mercury begins retracing its steps in direct motion in March 9 (its shadow ends on March 31).
Wishing you a safe and interesting adventure. ~Ruby
On February 9th, 2020 we have a Full Moon in Leo at 20°. This Full Moon is also making a harmonious trine to motivated Mars in Sagittarius, so this is a strong time for romance and sex!
This Full Moon is when the Sun in Aquarius makes a tense opposition with the Moon in Leo, it is a time to find a balance between our friendships and romantic lives. We need to work on expressing ourselves both in a personal and impersonal way. But Full Moon’s canfeel quite stressful and excitable. So we need to find coping skills for our nerves, and under this particular Full Moon we should find healthy ways to express all the intense emotions we might be feeling, without roaring about it.
This is a strong, potent Full Moon in the sign of Leo, it’s a proud and extremely individual energy. We are not settling well with just being one of the team now. It can make you feel compelled to follow your dreams, heart’s desire, and joy, no matter who or what obstacles are or get in your way. But I must caution you to not let your emotions get out of control, or you can get extremely aggressive, egotistical, or mean. Luckily, this energy can actually help you to be more cautious, so you can look at situations more carefully before making any important moves.
This Full Moon is about creative self-expression, and it can be a major boost to our ego, as we receive attention through pleasure and romance. It’s important to check yourself and not allow the decisions you make to come from a place of ego. Go with the flow! And if you have some sort of clarity, or random Ah-Ha moment than pay attention. But if you are feeling more frustrated or angry, then you have some more soul-searching kind of work to do.
During this Full Moon time we can be intensely devoted to someone, but the Moon hooks up with sexual Mars as well, and we can feel strongly sexual and attracted to others as well, so this can be a strong time for infiadelity. And there can be a deeper need to meet up with otherpeople, or to just get our freak on! Pay Attention folks, we can feel a stronger than usual urge to merge with others, and you can feel more brave and daring, which makes it easier to make declarations of love and adoration. So if you are really feeling it, then go for it! But remember your consequences.
This Full Moon illuminates our emotional issues, so there might be something we need to end, release, or bring to an end. Or perhaps there is just something we need to acknowledge, or maybe we just need to make an adjustment of some kind. We may have a new and fresh perspective under this illumination, so many of you are going into an old situation in a whole different way, and you can see things much more clearly. Full Moon’s tend to bring skeletons out of the closet, so the truth comes out! And this Leo Moon energy is about being real and authentic, so lots of people will see things that have been hidden, secret, or denied come out this weekend!
I’m not crying, you’re crying!
This Full Moon is a highly emotionally charged one, so we can feel extra sensitive and vulnerable. It illuminates over some pretty touchy cosmic points that affect us quite profoundly. Under the sign of courageous Leo, you can feel more bold, but also be quite stubborn. This Moon isn’t necessarily a time to be strong and silent, it is a time to express yourself in some way. But our emotions get pulled on right from the heart, and it can be more difficult to stay strong at times. The best thing to do is release what’s no longer working for you, let that bad relationship go, forgive and move on. Or let go of feeling badly over something, whatever it is, this Full Moon encourages us to let go and move forward now!
Loving Venus is also heading towards an alignment with wounded healer/teacherChiron, both in the sign of Aries at the time of the Full Moon. So through our interactions with people, we are learning how to grow and heal our emotional wounds. And since we have so much fire in the sky right now, a lot of these experiences for many of you will be sexual in nature!
The planet Mars is currently in fellow fire sign, Sagittarius. This can give us energy, and help us stay motivated, as it pushes us to get moving. The Full Moon is forming a rather beautiful Trine energy to passionate Mars. This really pumps up the energies and gets us moving since both the Moon and Mars are in fire signs! This makes for a good weekend to get things done.
This Moon/Mars influence is a boost of energy, courage, and confidence that we so desperately need right now. It’s encouraging us to go after our dreams and what we truly desire, and for moving forward in our lives. But we must remember Mars is naturally aggressive, and this means we are not afraid of a fight! Try not to get too frustrated, or it can trip you up emotionally and take you to a whole new level of angry! The good news is if you’re feeling stuck and haven’t been able to get something accomplished this energy can finally help you work out a plan.
Mars is currently in the sign of beliefs and faith, Sagittarius. So we might be fighting our faith or are just in a crisis of faith. It doesn’t matter what you believe in, faith is faith. Get out of your comfort zone and find what makes you happy this weekend, and if you’re not sure then ask the Universe to show you!
Just remember you might think you need to be honest under these energies, but in all actuality we are just expressing what we believe the truth to be from our perspective. 2020 is the year of integrity, after all. However, if you decide to be brutally honest just to hurt someone or to be mean, it will probably backfire on you! And that’s not ok! Instead, work at being kind, and help motivate others, spread some good energy around and you’ll be better off for it.
This romantic Full Moon in Leo up in the night sky is symbolic, as it lights up our emotions in our own lives. But of course, our feelings are raw and new, so whatever clarity we receive or revelations we have are going to be emotionally based. This is a time when these emotions can suddenly be brought forth into our awareness or consciousness. It’s a very strong time to express our thoughts and ideas and to let things out. Over the next few days or so, we will understand more about what we are feeling and experiencing now under this Full Moon.
For the weekend, we should take a step back and chill with our feelings. But again we might feel pushed to express our thoughts, (that’s where Setting Intentions with the Universe comes into play) so if you do happen to express yourself just try and use some restraint and extra care.
Just remember this is not a time when we are rational, it’s all emotional reactions under a Full Moon, hence why you need to find a healthy way to release all this energy in a more controlled manner. That leads us right back to making out a Setting Intention list. Learn more about this practical yet magical process over at https://wp.me/p2dXxi-1vj
Have a beautiful, safe, and blessed Full Moon. ~Ruby
On December 28th Mercury enters the sign of Capricorn and stays there through January 16th.
Mercury, the planet of communication, commerce, and travel has been in the sign of Sagittarius for the last three weeks at its detriment. The bottom line is this means while Mercury is in Sagittarius, it does not do so well. As we had less control of our mouths and impulses. This was a time of travel, exploration, and learning. But even if we didn’t get to actually go anywhere, we probably had some amazing adventures in our minds. It was a good time for meeting new people, so hopefully there were fresh new ideas gained and perspectives changed. But now a shift occurs and it’s time to make new plans and set new goals, and manifest what we want next in our life. Our goals should reflect who we are and want to become.
With Mercury in Capricorn, we tend to get more calm and quiet, and are less over the top under this energy. It’s much easier to focus and concentrate on the tasks on hand that we need to take care of. This simply is a much better position for the messenger planet, so we can get more serious about taking care of business once again.
With the planet that rules over our thinking in more systematic Capricorn, we are more focused. Our attitude tends to be more sobering and practical. It’s much easier to concentrate on what needs to get done. Our conversations are more reality-based, usually about business or practical matters. We communicate more logically, as we can be more organized and orderly. Being focused on the here and now can help us plan ahead. Communications tend to be a matter of fact, no-nonsense, and precise. But it’s important to not allow our thoughts to become too cold or rigid, or we can come across as cut off and even harsh during this cycle, when really we are just more focused on business and goals.
There’s actually a whole lot of Capricorn energy going around right now, with it being “Capricorn Season”, and there are four other planets also in the sign represented by the Sea-Goat. This energy encourages us to take life and ourselves more seriously, so it doesn’t support fantasies do much or daydreams about the future. It wants us to just get out and actually do something.
We should be as productive as possible during these cycles! It’s a good time to make out plans and get organized by writing things down, especially your goals. And talk about what you want to do with the people involved. Staying productive makes us happy and puts our minds at ease.
The sign of Capricorn is not about being overly emotional, as it has work to do. It’s about the material things here on the planet and what we value in the physical world. Our thinking tends to be more logical and practical. It may not be the best time to share feelings or for being vulnerable, as we are more concerned and focused on getting what we want and seeing actual results materialize.
Under this energy, we tend to value honesty, integrity, and loyalty. So we should use this time to identify the best means to get a job done. Under this Capricorn influence, we can manage our resources quite well and make mostly practical purchases with our hard-earned cash or money.
It is important to take care of ourselves, and make sure we are taking some time to get away, relax and have some fun from time to time. Under all this Capricorn energy people tend to be more hard on themselves, so we can beuptight. It’s ok to rest and not be constantly doing something. Take a break!
Have a productive and successful time with Mercury in Capricorn.
The Last Full Moon of 2019 is slowly building up energy now, and this is right before Eclipse Season begins.
The December Full Moon illuminates in the sign of Gemini (represented by the twins of the Zodiac) on the 11th or 12th, depending on what part of the world you live in. So during this time, you may see things show up or happen in pairs.
The Universe gives the gift of clarity during a Full Moon, and highlights the duality in your life. This helps you see all sides of any given situation or the whole picture. You can feel conflicted about something in your life and want to take action, but it’s really best to wait until the day after the Full Moon occurs to make any important decisions or changes.
Love Is Serious Business! On Dec. 11th the Goddess of Love herself, Venus, meets up with Father Saturn in the sign of Capricorn. This is a time when we mean business about our love lives and financial responsibilities. A serious commitment or proposal could take place.
On Dec 12th, the Full Moon will reach its peak of fullness at 12:12 AM EST on the 12th day of the 12 month of the year! That’s pretty amazing and rare! This energy is magical and can help you create your future. What do you need to let go of so you can move forward? What needs to be released?
It’s time to Set those Intentions! This is a very potent Full Moon and the last one of the year, so you don’t want to miss out. If you can’t stay up until Midnight, make sure to Set Intentions. Practice doing energy work or rituals on Dec. 11th, when there’s a good view of the Moon.
Full Moons are the best time in a calendar month to work on letting go of what is no longer working or serving you. This particular energy helps you release what you don’t want to carry into the New Year.
During this Full Moon, you should work on letting go of any problems you have had, especially ones from last summer when the last Eclipse came together in July. There may be some unresolved issues that started back then that need your time and attention. This Full Moon energy might be an opportunity to fix something or gain some closure.
December is, of course, a very busy month, but we need to take this time (just for a day or two) and reflect on what we want to release from our life. So that we won’t bring any bad juju into 2020! One of the best ways to do this is to Set Intentions with this energy. If you’re not too sure how to go about it please follow this link Setting Intentionswith the Full Moon. Doing some sort of ritual under this energy can help give your spiritual wellness the boost it needs to make some magic happen.
This Full Moon brings new and fresh opportunities into our relationships as well. It may help you get some closure if needed. Some of you may feel this energy in a particularly strong and intense manner, so expect this energy to sort of take you over for a few days. The Zodiac Sun Signs Gemini, Sagittarius, Pisces, and Virgo may feel this Full Moon more strongly, as it pushes you to see the things you need to change in your life. But remember this Full Moon energy can be felt by all of us.
Last Full Moon of the Decade
This Full Moon is the last Full Moon of this Decade (2010-2019). The Cosmos is trying to tell us that it’s a strong time for Closure! Are you ready to complete this chapter of your life and start a new one? This is the energy you have been waiting for.
Synchronicity – 12th day of the 12th month of the year that equals 12 (2+0+1+9 =12)
This Full Moon occurs at the portal gate of 12. Numerologically speaking, 12 is not just a number that equals 3. It’s a special and very potent number. Throughout history witches, priests, Astrologers, and different spiritualities of all kinds knew the importance of the number 12.
12 are the Months of the Year
12 are the Zodiac Signs
12 are the principal Gods and Goddesses of Olympus
12 are the disciples of Jesus Christ
12 are the tribes of Israel according to the Old Testament
12 are the Labours (Challenges) of Hercules
12 are the Magical hours of the Day
12 are the Magical hours of the Night
Therefore, the Full Moon will be drenched in the Power of 12. 12 is the number of perfection, the number of Universal Wisdom and immense power. It is believed to be the number of the Angels and their power.
The Triple Conjunction that occurs right with the Full Moon is a very powerful energy.
Try to lighten up as much as you can during this Full Moon. Don’t allow your inner-critic to take over. This is not a good time to beat yourself up, it is a time to focus on your inner healing journey.
Lovely Venus is very strong during this Full Moon, and just like any good woman who knows what she wants, she can trigger you with the truth about the issues in your relationships. Venus is smack in between Saturn and Pluto, all forming a conjunction. This can make you feel powerful, assertive, but also uncertain. It’s a good time to set clear boundaries with your nearest and dearest, but it can be rather difficult to end a relationship, especially with it being the Holiday Season. Remember you have to do what’s best for you, so ignore those folks who tell you what to do.
Let go of your fears when it comes to asking for help, after all the Moon is in Gemini which is the sign of the twins. Perhaps this means we aren’t meant to work on our problems alone during this time, maybe it’s best to take the help.
This Full Moon may stir up some issues around our finances. During the Holidays we generally spend more money as it is, so we can use this energy to our advantage. Starting now work on your money issues, and make out a plan of action. Make phone calls to settle accounts or make payment arrangements. Whatever you do don’t ignore your financial responsibilities before the Full Moon comes together on the 11th/12th. As it can seriously backfire on you. And if at all possible, put some money away to save. And set some financial goals for next year. Write it all down!
However, this Full Moon can bring in financial blessings of some sort. If you are already doing well financially, do yourself a favor and find ways to give back. This energy is all about paying it forward, as this helps someone else benefit and can erase some of your Karmic Debt. There’s a strong need to find a balance between giving and receiving. Think about what you actually give back. Are you truly open to receiving? If not you can be unconsciously blocking blessings. That’s definitely something to be working on.
It is the Holiday Season, so many of you will be around your friends and family more so than usual, which often means drama! There’s going to be moments or triggers, where you are going to need to try really hard to keep your cool. It is a Full Moon, therefore, whatever problems arise will be out in the open to be dealt with. The Moon in Gemini, the sign of information and self-expression, so we can say too much once triggered. Don’t let things get too crazy. It’s best to release how your feeling slowly, so it doesn’t all come pouring out at once. Express yourself if need be, just be mindful about losing your cool. And sometimes a good argument can help fix things.
Time for Healing!
You should be using this Full Moon energy to practice self-care. Right after it occurs you can work on finding ways to relax and restore your energies. Just after the Full Moon peaks wounded healer Chiron, (the asteroid of healing) goes Direct from being Retrograde since last July! This Full Moon energy has the power to heal you. This is an ideal time to focus on your health, as it can help you find ways to boost your immune system. It’s important to do something that involves self-care, so if you need to go to the doctor (of any kind), this is a good time to make that appointment. This is amazing energy for you to work on health problems.
These healing energies are not just about working on your physical well-being, they also can help with your mental and emotional health. If you need someone to chat with about your problems, this is a good time to seek out a therapist of some kind. Or perhaps you just need a friend or family member, or perhaps a Spiritual Advisor of some kind, wink! And if you just can’t bring yourself to reach out for help, perhaps try to do something new or different, like a workout class, new diet regime, start meditation, or a Yoga class. Changing up the energies during this time can work out well.
The Full Moon in Gemini can help us to be more loving, kind, and compassionate. Our creative nature can come out strong, but you may have to get into situations where you can use it. And since we are feeling more open and can be more sensitive about other people’s feelings, we can use this energy to share love and kindness, that’s a gift. This is something we should be doing all year long, but the Holidays are always a good reminder.
On Dec. 13th the Full moon energy will still be running quite strong! And Mars makes a sweet Trine connection to spiritual Neptune. This is some serious Psychic Energy! It’s important to listen to your gut instincts and those psychic hunches, or A-Ha moments. Pay attention to your dreams as well, as your intuition will be vibrating very high. Highly sexual otherworldly experiences.
The Full Moon in Gemini can show you the duality of your life. Just like the two sides of Gemini, it can bring blessings but it might also bring in some opposition. Once the Full Moon energy breaks apart through the weekend you can reflect on just how happy or upset you’ve been with your life in 2019. This energy gives you an opportunity to let go and release anything you’ve been hanging onto emotionally or physically that is no longer working for you. Then you can start the New Year with a new beginning and hopefully a fresh start.
Mercury Goes Direct and out of Retrograde on Wednesday the 20th! Woo-hoo!
It’s been a rough Mercury in Retrograde cycle for many of you, with it being in emotionally deep Scorpio during Scorpio Season as well, (when the Sun is in Scorpio.)
But let’s just focus on the fact that it’s over, even though we do have a two week after-shadow period to get through! Things now can slowly start to go back to normal.
Take a deep breath as it’s almost time to get moving again! Thank goodness, as this one was problematic and annoying for most of us.
Mercury has spent an unusually long time in the sign of deeper feeling Scorpio, and in Retrograde since Halloween. Even though it will stay in Scorpio for a few more weeks, things can slowly start to go back to normal when it comes to communications and misunderstandings. Our inner-detective has been strong, but with Mercury direct now, some of the things we were researching or obsessing over will finally make sense and slowly start to come together.
As this shift occurs be mindful that a flood of information can start to pour in that’s difficult to understand. Take notes and make out lists, it will be helpful once this energy shifts. This info coming in can start to stress us out and mentally we can get overwhelmed.
It’s not wise to make any important decisions for the time being, as our thinking is not clear. This issue for the next week or so is our problems can be magnified and difficult to fix. Our problems might be right in our face, so we should take a step back and take a breath so we can think about what our next move should be after we are out of the after shadow period in two weeks.
Expect some “a-ha” moments over the next few weeks. But it can be a rocky start with Mercury moving so slowly, even though it’s headed in the right direction again. During this adjustment period, there may actually be more disruptions and misunderstandings. However, slowly but surely Mercury will get back to normal and so will our lives, just eventually without all the technical glitches and snafus.
As the mental energies start to calm back down whatever has been wonky or not working will soon get better, or may just be something you need to let go of.

November 2019 – Astro Highlights
November 1st – Venus Enters Sagittarius
Since lovely and lusty Venus is now finished with its trip through the murky waters of Scorpio, it moves back into the light in fiery Sagittarius. So basically we can feel more hopeful and optimistic in things like love, relationships, and with situations involving our money! If you have been hiding your heart or your feelings from those you love, it’s time to come back out to the land of the living and find what makes you happy and brings you joy! It’s time to use this new hopeful energy to overcome your fears and remember that anything is possible.
November 5th, 2019 – Mars Square Pluto
Mars makes a tense square to intense Pluto, which can bring power struggles and a stronger desire to win someone or something over. With Mars involved you may want to assert yourself and get what you want and do it right away! But no matter how much you may want something, there may be circumstances or people that will make it more difficult if not impossible. When Mars Squares Pluto we are challenged or tested to see what we are capable of, and why not, this helps us learn how to be good at losing. Sometimes we fear losing, but this influence tends to push us out of our comfort zone, so we can reach our full potential. If you never learn how to lose in your life you will never be able to win.
November 11th, 2019 – Mercury Conjunct Sun
When Mercury meets up with the Sun it begins a new Mercury cycle, this is a great time to finish up any projects that take mental concentration. Do you have perhaps a book or website you need to finish? Maybe you want to learn a new skill or sell something online? Mercury will be hanging out with the Sun who will help you with what your next move should be to obtain your goals. This won’t happen again for years, so if an opportunity comes up definitely see what it’s all about.
November 12th, 2019 – Full Moon In Taurus
The Full Moons in Taurus are some of the best feeling most lucky Full Moons of the year. This particular Full Moon is also making some interesting meeting with Neptune in Pisces, and some sweet Trines to Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn, and is opposing Mercury in Scorpio. Yes, that is a lot of energy to go around. Because there is so much Earth energy involved, the Full Moon in Taurus will help us deal with obvious problems that we have been choosing to ignore or refuse to deal with. This is a time of common sense and sound judgment, so with the Full Moon in Taurus you will see what you get and you probably will get what you see. It’s important to watch for being overly stubborn, although some self-interest is healthy and necessary, as Taurus energy helps us to put some much-needed attention on ourselves once again.
November 14th, 2019 – Venus Square Neptune
When Venus makes a square to Neptune our feelings of insecurity can lead to high expectations that just are not going to happen, perhaps in the way we had hoped for. Because this Square is in the most hopeful but foggier signs of the Zodiac, you should be extra careful about wishful thinking. How we see ourselves can become an issue in our relationships, as we have a tendency to over-idealize romance and relationships, and plain out ignore warning signs that most others can see so well. This is a time to pay attention and reassess your hopes and dreams, but it’s just as important not to set the bar so high, and it’s equally as important to understand what’s realistically possible and what’s not! We deserve the Sun and Moon, but sometimes we push things and don’t allow ourselves enough time to get there. Don’t let this energy discourage you, be patient. We are more tender and affectionate at this time which can lead to new relationships, but stay woke folks, as the Neptunian influence can cause confusion. It’s just wise to wait until after this transit is over before making any commitments, so don’t be so trusting and fall victim to the wrong person.
“Warning for anyone who is susceptible to the influence of alcohol or drugs, this is a time when addiction can go too far and often there are overdoses. Be mindful and if you suffer from depression make sure and talk to someone if you are feeling bad, there is always someone who will listen.”
November 19th, 2019 – Mars Enters Scorpio
With Mars in Scorpio, it can be easier to assert yourself in the actions you take, so you can feel more driven and focused to get things done. Mars is at home in Scorpio, being the co-ruler of this sign, so it likes it here and will assist you on getting things done. We are more strong-willed, passionate, single-minded, and resilient under this energy. Once you are on a mission it can be very difficult for anyone to stop you during this time. There is a stronger desire to experience our emotional depths, so we can feel the urge to penetrate the surface of life in order to explore deeper levels of powerful existence. This is also a time where we can get caught up in what others tend to repress, so all that has been hidden, kept secret, or ignored can come out to experience and understand better.
November 20th, 2019 – Mercury Goes Direct
Hooray, Mercury stations direct and moves out of its Retrograde phase! Mercury has spent an unusually long time in Scorpio and has been in Retrograde since Halloween, and even though it will stay in Scorpio for a few more weeks, things can slowly start to go back to normal when it comes to communications, especially. Our inner detective has been strong, but with Mercury direct now, some of the things you were researching or obsessing over will finally make sense or slowly start to come together. As things start to make sense, be mindful that a flood of information can start to pour back in to make sense of and this can be mentally overwhelming and stressful. Expect some “a-ha” moments over the next few weeks, but also things may be rocky at first. Mercury doesn’t just start and stop on a dim, it moves as we do and now that is headed in the right direction once again, it also has to pick up the pace and get back to its normal speed. This “Shadow period” as it is commonly called means there may be more disruptions and misunderstandings. Slowly but surely Mercury will get back to normal and so will our lives again, as technical glitches and snafus will start to calm back down, and the things that weren’t making sense will again very soon.
November 22, 2019 – Sun Enters Sagittarius
The Sun enters into the sign of Sagittarius today, so Happy Birthday to all of you Sagittarians! Thanks to the Sagittarius season, we all become a bit wiser, hopeful and adventurous this time of the year.
This transit lasts through December 21st. With the Sun in Sagittarius, our focus shifts from the need to make intimate connections with others to a stronger need to get out and have an adventure. While the Sun moves through this fiery mutable sign, there is an urge to learn, grown, and expand our horizons, so we want to understand the world around us. This is a time when we seek out truth but also the higher meaning of any situation we focus on. Our faith and hope are restored and we can feel optimistic about life once again.
Since we are feeling more brave and courageous, we want to head down new and different paths, as our minds are wide open. Our confidence levels can soar now, so we can be overly optimistic as we focus more on the “bigger picture” and our dreams, instead of just the little details of our mundane everyday life. However, we tend to overdo things and can get carried away! This is the perfect time to work on our faith, hope, and future visions. This is your time to dream big. Don’t worry about the “how”, just make sure your goals are big enough and motivating, as you want to find your true meaning and purpose.
November 24th, 2019 – Venus Conjunct Jupiter
This amazing energy is what all the Astrologers have been talking about, so if you are an Astrology enthusiast of some kind, you might be quite excited to learn about this energy! However, on the same day Mars starts is opposition with rebellious Uranus, and the Moon also briefly joins Mars in the middle of this heated up energy. This can produce a lot of intensity and a strong desire for change. You may not want change because you want to move away from something, or because your current situation is unstable, but many of you are also feeling anxious and excited all at the same time about new opportunities coming in.
This certainly can be one heck of a freaking interesting day for many different reasons. It seems like those who have strong Sagittarius energy in their chart will experience some sort of expansion, uplifting, or happy go lucky kind of energy with these influences. While the fixed signs (Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, and Aquarius) may feel like they are caught up in a whirlwind of craziness. But no matter what you sign maybe we all will feel this energy in one way or another. Be careful of accidents and make sure to pay attention to your surroundings.
November 26th, 2019 – Venus Enters Capricorn
Venus the planet of love, money, and lust changes signs into realistic, accomplished Capricorn. Venus moves fast around the Zodiac wheel in exact order, so we must take advantage of the energies she puts off while in the sign of Capricorn for about the next month. You can feel more reserved when it comes to displaying your emotional side which can help if you are feeling overwhelmed when dealing with a partner or significant others. Be careful as you can bury all those emotions way too deep, and they can come out in a more impulsive, negative or even angry way!
With this placement, our relationships tend to be more on the practical side. That’s because we tend to see people for who they are, and are not afraid to lay the cards out on the table, as we simply take things more seriously. Since we appreciate maturity in our relationships, we take our time when it comes to love and tend to slowly warm up to others, then we can make long-term commitments. There will be more focus on business relationships as well during this time. Hopefully, any emotional issues that come up can be addressed before this cycle begins, so start to get prepared for it now.
November 26th, 2019 – New Moon In Sagittarius
This New Moon is a fabulous one, full of great feeling vibes with another interesting conjunction between lovely Venus and lucky Jupiter, so in fact, this New Moon can reactivate this amazing energy, and then for the cherry on top of this Cosmic Sundae is sweet Mercury and mystical Neptune in water signs hooking up! This is just one of those New Moons that are rare, the best one of year in fact! So it’s a great time for Setting Intentions, (telling the Universe what you want to see happen next in your life) and for visualization work. Get up today and start making a Vision Board, (when you take pictures and literally post them up on a board or a corkboard to see every day, helping create the energy of what you want to see happen in your life.)
Now for the more shadow side to this New Moon, is that aggressive Mars is opposing rebellious Uranus at the same time. This can bring chaotic energy! There also can be more irritation, hostility, or unexpected changes. Anger can boil over and turn into rash actions and silly temper tantrums. We can feel more impulsive and have a total disregard for following the rules, it can feel more important to break the rules to be free from our responsibilities and obligations.
November 27: Neptune goes Direct
Hopefully you’ve used the last few months to revisit your hopes, dreams, and goals and are now ready to turn your dreams into reality. However, since Neptune rules fantasies and spiritual quests make sure to take your time before making important decisions. You’ll need to pay attention and use your common sense to be successful now. Please read my Daily Astro Readings Blogs to learn more.

Mercury goes Retrograde on Halloween October 31st, 2019 and runs through November 17, 2019.
Mercury is currently inthe sign of Scorpio, this is a deep, potent, psychological energy. Therefore we go into a more private introverted place that has us exploring the deeper parts of our minds and psyche, as we learn truths that come from the depths of our souls. What is considered to be taboo or secret comes out in the open. The truth comes out to be told! The sign of Scorpio, after all, is the sign of regeneration, as it teaches all of us that sometimes we must fall to pieces and let something end or die off to start over again. If we take this cycle to plan and strategize we can make things happen once it’s over! As we go back to revisit and revise our plans we can go much deeper than usual while in this cycle and uncover ways to improve our lives and ourselves.
Sometimes the Universe gives us a break even though it doesn’t always feel that way. One thing the Cosmos always does is create balance. So the energies get slowed down a bit so we can have the opportunity to catch up. Mercury in Retrograde (Rx for short) is that time out, it’s an opportunity to get caught up with life, and a time to unplug and take a long deep breath. It’s also a great time to take some time off from our responsibilities if at all possible, maybe taking a little vacay and focus on reworking anything that needs to be done, or finishing projects that were never done to completion, while Mercury rules over our minds and thoughts. When this fast-moving planet goes into Retrograde we start to perceive things in a very different and unique way.
Mercury in Rx like all Retrograde planets is happening for a reason, this isn’t some new Astrological fad! Planets have always gone into Retrograde cycles and will continue to. So every once in a while we get a chance to pause or stop and get some rest. This is the time to review your life and the paths you’re on. What this Mercury in Rx cycle does is help us to take a breathe, be still, relax, and review. The main thing to understand as this cycle takes hold that it’s a time to review your life and redo anything that needs to be done. It is time to research, re-think, re-visit, re-connect, and to get re-organized.
Mercury rules over our minds and how we process information, so this is a time to observe our lives from an outside perspective, which is truly a gift. From this space, we have the rare opportunity to see the contrast in our lives and what is working and what isn’t. The only problem is we live in a time of INFORMATION and after all, Mercury is the planet that delivers info, but during its Retrograde cycles, it wants us to simply UNPLUG and take a step back from our normal everyday routines and lives, and to not be online or on our phones, CAN YOU IMAGINE THAT! But if we were to stop using all of our electronic devices and take work off, and simply review our lives it would be a much better experience. The reality is only a few of you reading this are actually able to do this. So the challenge is in learning how to handle Mercury in Retrograde and still do our lives. Those of you who already pay attention to Mercury in Rx’s cycles understand just how annoying all the misunderstandings, electronic glitches, and snafus can be! So the bottom line is we should learn how to put our phones down from time to time and just simply do life, as this is a time of deep inner reflection.
What Not To Do during
Mercury in Retrograde:
Don’t start brand new projects
Do not get into arguments, avoid critical folks and tense people or situations.
Do Not Sign Contracts or New Agreements
Do Not take misunderstandings personal. Our Minds and Communication is foggy and cloudy.
What To do during
Mercury in Retrograde:
Redo, Rework, Review, Research, so basically go over things again and wrap up old business and projects.
Double Check the Facts and any info gathered.
Revisit what you need to, like your work.
Reconnect with the folks that matter if you’ve had issues or not.
Backup Computers and any data you want to keep saved, usually start this process two weeks before the actual Retro Cycle.
Reorganize your daily life routines.
Reflect and practice spiritual work.
Release what’s been holding you back or blocking you, let go of what is no longer working, especially in your intimate relationships.
There can be positive things that come from a Mercury in Retrograde cycle that perhaps didn’t cross your mind. Like throwing out old stuff you no longer need or use, and organizing your life. Stay focused on any past opportunities and reconsider them now, see if they’re still an option. Try not to allow any computer glitches or electronic snafus you might be experiencing to upset you too much.
Since it’s the Holiday Season, it’s important to keep a paper trail of whatever you purchase. Mercury is known as the “trickster” of the Zodiac, so it likes to play tricks that make us change our minds suddenly and this causes confusion.
So our focus should be on re-organizing and reflecting. We see the world a little differently during this time, and through these filters, we can have some very important inner revelations. It may not be as easy to communicate under this influence, so remember trying to rationalize everything at this time will just probably cause you more confusion. Logic is out and intuition is in! Mercury Rx periods can be times of heightened inner-awareness, so doing things like meditation, keeping a journal, reworking old plans, reviewing, or reconnecting to your past can be quite helpful. Mercury Rx is also a powerful time to study, particularly for returning to old studies and re-learning or refreshing knowledge around a subject that’s already been started.
This Mercury in Retrograde cycle can also help you think back to a part of your recent past, and reconnect you to an old dream or goal to follow through on once this cycle is over, but write it all down for now and plan ahead. Someone from your past might get a hold of you for a second chance or opportunity, but that doesn’t mean it’s meant to be, usually, it doesn’t work out for the long-run. But it’s nice to reconnect and perhaps sort out any unresolved issues you might have.
Because we are perceiving things differently, and Mercury and the Sun are both in the sign of Scorpio this time around, the truth tends to come out! Certain things that have been suppressed, hidden, secret or unknown suddenly are shown to us during this time. You just might notice or find some kind of detail you overlooked or didn’t catch before, which can be very helpful. This cycle can bring clarity and help you move past any restrictions or blocks standing in your way. Mercury begins retracing its steps in direct motion starting November 17, 2019.
The New Moon takes place in the Sign of Scorpio ironically enough this October, but these energies will be felt strongly starting Saturday the 26th through the 28th. The actual New Moon comes together on Sunday the 27th in the evening here in the US.
This New Moon energy is meeting up with some other planets making it very different and challenging energy to deal with. There can be situations that provoke anger, and lies or deceptions. Lovers and relationships, in general, can have issues with high ideals that have been set and explosive attitudes around those expectations. The Uranus opposition to the New Moon is not compatible with its energy and therefore, it contradicts the awesome New Moon energy! So it may not feel like an ordinary New Moon, which is usually much more peaceful hopeful for most.
Since the Sun and Moon are both in the sign of Scorpio during this New Moon, our desires run deep and our will is stronger than usual. Our lives are under a microscope that involve our very existence, so we can become obsessed with thoughts about life and death. Scorpio is the sign of Regeneration after all. Any issues that suddenly come up now can be viewed as a matter of “life or death”, which is extreme, but so are our thoughts and emotions, which can be fiercely intense at this time.
With the New Moon in Scorpio stirring up such intense emotions, all that has been hidden, buried, repressed, taboo, or kept secret is ready to be discovered. This energy is supercharged with intense psychological energy, so it can affect our psyche in a powerful way that can help transform us! But this is not usually a fun process. Being aware is, however, half the battle and can help you understand what you need to move forward. Don’t be in denial or lie to yourself, or you won’t get the lessons involved from this New Moon energy and can struggle and suffer.
When the New Moon is in the sign of Scorpio our emotional depth mixes with our equally strong willpower to survive and succeed, at whatever we put our time and energy into. This makes for a stronger source of psychological energy to draw from. The only issue is we can catch others off guard by expressing ourselves rather suddenly and unexpectedly in a strong manner, this can cause tensions with other people, and then they may not trust us enough to deal with the real problems at hand.
This New Moon has such a different vibe with the planet Uranus almost precisely in an opposition to it! So it can feel like a Full Moon, as anxiety levels run high. The emotional Scorpio intensity is strong and needs some sort of transformation, this can make us feel excited and restless as we have a strong need for independence that can fill us full of nervous energy. Something needs to shift or change in our world in order to calm back down, but we may not even know where to start.
All of the Signs of the Zodiac will be affected by this energy, but it can be especially strong for the “Fixed Signs” of the Zodiac which are as follows; Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius, especially those born in the First decan of each sign, so the first week of each of these signs. And the “Cardinal Signs” as well so, Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn especially those born in the Second decan of their sign, which is the second week of each of those signs.
The New Moon’s Effects
During this New Moon there can be unexpected events that challenge what we have come to trust and understand to be true. Tensions can grow high and there can be rash and strong reactions from others. This influence tends to bring up issues around our emotional security and love life. Some folks will notice the feelings they’ve been stuffing deep down suddenly coming out in a very exaggerated manner. We can suddenly feel a strong urge to express our emotions out loud about our relationships, and this energy can trigger us and we may start to obsess about why we are with our partners or lovers in the first place. This creates a fog over our situations and makes it that much more confusing, especially with Mercury just about to go Retrograde also in the sign of the Scorpio. There might be a case of mistaken expectations of our partners, and what we thought they could or would do. We must sit back and observe for now, and perhaps take some sort of mental notes, but it would be silly to take any actions at this time, until the New Moon energy has passed and we are more clear and less judgmental about what we are doing and seeing!
This energy is extremely sexual, and therefore many of you will feel a strong desire to express your sexuality, but that may become frustrating or a waste of time and energy in some way. Just remember to keep your cool as this energy can cause tension, anger, and crisis, which can lead to separations and even breakups in any kind of relationship.
It’s important to have patience and remain polite to keep the peace. Try to think before reacting, and work on being more compromising. This is the best way to avoid these tense energy from kicking up! Perhaps the battles are not over for now, but do you really want to wage War under these energies? Unless you feel done with the relationship, then go for it, otherwise take a step back and a deep breathe and learn more so about how to compromise. That is what it takes to maintain a healthy relationship, and perhaps that is what this energy is trying to teach us, to be patient with our partners.
Setting Intentions with the New Moon
It may almost seem kind of scary to “Set Intentions” with this particular New Moon, due to the unstable energy it’s bringing to us, being hooked into a strong opposition with the planet Uranus. However, Scorpio energy is some strong magic folks, it is an alchemist at its very core. This is the time to go deep and ask for some kind of blessing or miracle. Being saturated by so much Scorpio energy we have the power to transform any situation in our lives. Uranus is the spark that helps creates miracles, it’s lightning speed and energy can change anything fast! Astrologers enjoy precision and this New Moon will hit us right where it counts, so it can be very powerful energy to work with! Take advantage of this powerful energy and wield it in the direction towards what you most strongly desire. This won’t be a waste of time I assure you as Scorpio is the sign that started and defined what Desire truly is in the first place.

The Sun shifts into the mysterious sign of Scorpio on October 23rd and “Scorpio Season” officially begins. Every aspect of life can feel super-charged with intensity between now and November 22nd.
Happy Birthday to all my Sun Sign Scorpions out there! But this blog is for all the Signs, so read on to learn more.
The sign of Scorpio is notoriously known for being the darkest (symbolically speaking), mysterious, and deeply psychological sign in the Zodiac, as it explores the soul when it’s under the light of the Sun and truths, deceptions, and secrets are exposed.
Scorpio’s lessons are about depth, intimacy, and transformation. Anything fake or false will be shown for what it truly is while the Sun is in this sign, so if something or someone is superficial it simply won’t work for you at this time, only the real deal will do! This sign and its energy is the detective of the Zodiac, therefore we are more interested in getting to the bottom of our problems, as we work at uncovering what’s been hidden, suppressed, or unseen. We also can be quite obsessed with other people’s problems and can feel a strong urge to help those around us. Under this energy, you might actually enjoy all that is odd, taboo, or different in the world. Anything just plain or average may not be enough for us during this time.
During Libra Season, while the Sun was in Libra over the last month we worked at being fair and equal, as our attention was on our relationships and keeping things more balanced. But under this
Scorpio energy we accept the fact that life isn’t fair, and we are learning to understand that pain and suffering are actually part of the process of life. In order to truly evolve, we must transform ourselves and perhaps go some sort of major breakdown to end something and begin anew.
Scorpio energy is also quite sexy, mysterious, and provocative! So there’s going to be some interesting situations that spark up in our relationships while the Sun is in Scorpio. And the single folks out there may search for a strong love, committed, and long-term during this time. This Scorpio influence keeps us perhaps a little more reserved about how passionate we truly feel, but we can still be strong-willed and intense. This is a time of powerful emotions and some of you might feel rather emotional during its run. This energy can transform certain things in your life, of course, depending on what part of your personal Astrology Birth Chart the Sun is cruising through is what part of your life this energy will be the most evident.
The sign of Scorpio is often represented by the Scorpion, but also, the Mythical Bird, the “Phoenix” can represent this brave sign. The legend of the Phoenix is about how once were ready to go, die off, or end our chapter in this life, this magical bird flies up in the air and catches fire and turns to dust! But from that state, it comes back and resurrects itself back to being whole. Once it has risen back to life, it is ready to start over again. This legend teaches us that sometimes we have to fall apart, and let something end, or let a part ourselves die off to resurrect and come back to life, so we can tap into some kind of new energy and start something anew.
The shadow side of Scorpio energy is we can become more easily jealous, paranoid, obsessive, and manipulative. This energy can cause some of you to be more obsessive about an issue or problem, as we can be compulsive and won’t let things just happen naturally. This, of course, will get you nowhere and it might be more difficult to stop once you have started focusing on something.
Despite how scary or creepy this all might sound, Scorpio is part of the Zodiac Wheel for a reason and we all have a little or a lot of this sign in each of our Astrology Birth Charts. Scorpio energy also gives us incredible drive and strength, which in turn can help us get through difficult times. This sign knows how to survive the worst of situations and has extra reserved up energy to get through. Scorpio energy kicks ass and takes names once it is forced to die off like the Phoenix, so it can figure out whatever it needs to know to come back. So draw upon the Scorpio energy during this time to help you take on difficult tasks or situations in your life.
Curious Mercury and loving Venus are also in the sign of Scorpio at this time, which also runs through Scorpio Season. This means our souls, hearts, and minds are all being ruled by the Scorpio energy, therefore, some of you will be breaking your lives down to rise up once again, and perhaps resurrect yourselves in some way just like the Phoenix!
This can be amazing energy to work with if you want to finish something in your life, after all, Scorpio Season is a time of endings, hence why we choose to celebrate Halloween during this time, as Halloween originated from the Holiday the “Day of the Dead,” which is a time when we should be honoring those who have passed or crossed over, it’s a time to be in touch with our ancestors who lived here before us. With so much Scorpio energy this season going around the veils between this world and other realms are very thin, and we will have an extra spooky Halloween Season as our minds are very in sync with the afterlife and paranormal. Therefore many of you will be able to connect to loved ones who have crossed more easily than usual. And those spirits and energies that are still roaming on this earthly plane will be restless, so often that means more communicative as well. But remember they have to communicate differently with us.
This is also a time when the earth sheds itself, as the Fall into Winter months is the time the planet dies off so to speak, but we know next Spring it will resurrect itself and start all over again. Ask yourself what part of your life do you need to end? What are you shedding away? What part of your life needs to die off and perhaps be started all over? Are you being forced to look at certain parts of your life now, so you will end something? This can be any part of your life, an old worn-out behavior or attitude, a situation, or it could be with a person. Or perhaps it is something spiritual within yourself.
Happy Birthday, Libra! And Happy Libra Season to all. The Sun shifts from practical, detailed Virgo into the sign of harmony and balance, Libra, through October 23.
This is our “Autumnal Equinox”, and we will experience equal hours of daylight as darkness. Today is something to talk about because not only is 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, as these influences bring in the energy of balance, cooperation, and equality. It’s a good time to work on balancing your personal life and relationships.
We can feel mentally sharper and be made more aware of issues of injustice by being able to spot unfair treatment. We may have to stand up for ourselves or someone else during this time. This seems to come out more so with family and close friends. It can be easier at this time to see all sides to most situations, so we can have a hard time choosing sides while trying to figure things out. Just remember you can’t make everyone happy, as decision making can prove to be difficult. This is a good time to meet others halfway, compromise, and work on negotiations. Take into consideration other folks needs, agendas, and desires as well as your own. We might start playing the role of peacemaker, so we can be very diplomatic when it comes to dealing with problems or in business dealings. We desire peace and harmony and create that energy both aware and unconsciously.
Be careful to not seek out the approval of others too much during this cycle, as it can be difficult to know who’s telling the truth sometimes. Follow your gut instincts during Libra Season as our inner awareness is very strong. We have an extra boost of intuition now with mental Mercury also in the sign of Libra, so it’s just natural to study other folks and their behaviors and body language. Follow that little voice inside your head, it is strong under all this Libra energy, we all can be quite Psychic and will be able to see through other people quite quickly.
This transit can affect those with Leo or Libra Suns Signs or Rising signs quite strongly, but this energy affects all of us! Sun in Libra folks should feel a great big jolt of confidence and playfulness over these next four weeks, and Leo may be made more aware of how to balance themselves both emotionally and physically.
While under the Sun in Libra we will strive to keep some sort of balance and greater equilibrium for the next month. So we are working on lessons involving such things as style, charm, tact, tolerance, and our social skills. The more shadow side of Libra energy shows us how we are more indecisive, passive-aggressive, fake or superficial, and a bit narcissistic. Learn from this time, as there is going to be a whole lot of Libra energy surrounding us for the next month or so.
