Mercury, the messenger planet, moves into Aquarius on January 8th.
Mercury rules over the mind and helps us tap into higher dimensions, so things should get rather interesting with Mercury in progressive Aquarius through March 15th.
Heads-Up Mercury will enter its Retrograde cycle, starting January 30th, and runs through February 20th. We have already entered the Pre-shadow phase! When the planet Mercury starts to slow down to get ready to appear moving backward or turn Retrograde through the Cosmos. So the energies are going to be quite strange. I will have more on this later.
Mercury rules our thoughts, perceptions, and communications, and in the sign of Aquarius, we are inventive, innovative, progressive, objective, intuitive, detached, rational, and outspoken. Our opinions are strong and our independence very important. Our minds are downloading amazing inspirational visions, and we can have random A-ha moments and epiphanies. So our awareness is expanded, and our ideas are brilliant, ingenious, and at times revolutionary.
It’s a strong time for free-thinking as we are minds open, so we will see scientific breakthroughs during this cycle. This influence allows us to channel information from higher dimensions and energies, so take advantage of it through spiritual activities such as meditation and journal-writing.
Over the next nine weeks, we feel pulled to explore our ideas, beliefs, strategies, so we can uplift each other and innovate. As Mercury transits the sign of Aquarius, events and experiences start to represent the Mercury traits in Aquarius more so as we think more outside the box.
Between January 8 – 13, Mercury forms a tense Square to warrior Mars in Taurus and is conjunct Saturn and Jupiter in Aquarius as well. Mercury is also squaring off with the Great Awakener Uranus in Taurus! This event is being called the 3 Planet Conjunction on social media sites.
These powerful Cosmic energies create revelations that potentially have a strong impact and are definitely meaningful. This is a taste of what’s coming in January/February as other aspects continue to tap into these Cosmic connections. These influences create tensions and frictions between balancing our personal desires and values with what the world needs from us. We must think about the whole picture under these energies.
As Mercury amps up all the newly formed Aquarian energies, Venus also shifts into the sign of Capricorn. This energy re-activates the tensions from last year’s dynamic energies. It’s important to try to be more responsible by creating abundance and happiness even during these difficult times. We can make this happen by acknowledging our feelings about our difficulties and seeing our blessings, even the little ones.
The key to success and navigating through January and February of 2021 is to let go of the old ways while still valuing tradition and embracing the new ways!
Today is a Brand New Day and a New Era! Jupiter enters a new sign into Aquarius, which is a fast-paced, exciting kind of energy that can be unpredictable throughout 2021. It’s a time of innovation and progression, as Jupiter can spread around some abundance once again.
Over the last year, Jupiter, the planet of growth, philosophy, and expansion, has been transiting the sign of Capricorn, alongside planets Saturn and Pluto in a very well structured Stellium connection. This trio has been dismantling our lives over the last year, in many different ways, so it’s been a time of crisis that brought out our fears to work through. It has been difficult to see the light at the end of this dark and stormy tunnel. Jupiter’s influence has been stunted, so it’s not been handing out miracles or blessings as usual. Instead, it’s been in restrictive Capricorn challenging our faith and spirituality.
Jupiter is all about expanding our horizons, as it seeks deeper meanings and spiritual truths, especially involving education, freedom, community, and ideals. Aquarius energy matches up better with Jupiter’s purpose. This helps us feel more comfortable as this energy is easier to take in. So maybe we can learn to enjoy ourselves again, without being locked down in 2021!
Jupiter has a strong need to be free of all restrictions and have open spaces to explore. Aquarius seeks freedom and independence at all costs. We are bound to break out of the whole Covid19 mess in one way or another! Saturn also moved into Aquarius on December 17th, so there still will be challenges and lessons as always with Saturn’s influence. And even though there will be times when we feel ourfreedom and independence are being infringed upon, Jupiter now can find ways to lift our spirits and pull us through while in Aquarius and later in Pisces!
Jupiter will shift into the sign of Pisces in May of 2021 when it goes Retrograde. This preview can give us clues as to how the energies will play out in October, once Jupiter shifts into Pisces throughout 2022! At that time, there will be a major shift, and our focus will turn towardsspiritual activities and we tend to feel more compassionate, loving, and forgiving anytime Jupiter is in Pisces.
Jupiter shifting between Aquarius and Pisces throughout 2021 will expand how we teach, learn, and communicate. We already had a glimpse into how quickly Aquarius energy can advance our technology game in 2020 when Jupiter was Retrograde. And we had no choice but to learn due to Covid19. These influences can help us align with causes for our highest-good! So while in Aquarius, Jupiter helps us tap into humanitarian efforts. And it makes it easier to connect to our tribe and like-minded people. We also may feel a stronger desire to help others, especially in group settings. Following a path that honors our true authentic-self is supported, and we can let go of what is no longer working.
Jupiter in both Aquarius and Pisces throughout 2021 syncs well together, because both signs have a deeper understanding of healing the world. This can help us focus on the bigger picture and keep in mind what’s best for all of us as a whole. We can feel this influence surround us, as it gives us a reason or a better sense of purpose to help bond our communities together. And fight for causes that affect all of us.
Jupiter will retrograde back into Aquarius in June and then finally move fully into Pisces by the end of December 2021. By this time, we should have a good idea of what our goals, hopes, and dreams are for a better, more connected world. Being under this blanket of Air Sign energy, we need mental stimulation to thrive on. But we will likely be craving spiritual and emotional connections strongly all year long. This energy helps to restore balance in how we relate to people, particularly with friends and socially. Our communication skills are on point, and we can share our ideas and opinions much more clearly with confidence. Good communication skills lead to solving problems and healing.
Jupiter in Aquarius encourages us to be the activist, and gives us a reason to give in from time to time. Once Jupiter is in Pisces in May for a short visit will learn strongly that a battle can be won when we surrender.
Jupiter will bestow some amazing gifts in 2021, especially without feeling so blocked or restricted. It’s a time of forgiveness, as we honor our intuition and feel more compassionate towards others.
Saturn finally shifts today out of the sign of Capricorn and into Aquarius, it remains there for the next three years! Saturn is starting a new 28-year Karmic Cycle with this move. This shift means the structures and foundations of our lives will change from Earth elements over to Air elements, and this energy will last for the next 200 years. Welcome to a new era, and “The Age Of Aquarius!”
This energy produce things that are associated with electricity, and under the Air theme we can feel more breezy, lighter, social, inventive, and brilliant. Aquarius energy is always innovative and 10 steps ahead in the future, so the inventions will see during this time will be fascinating, as technology will advance faster then ever! We tend to focus more so spiritual pursuits that are of the higher-mind, so more open and free. And often Aliens are associated with Aquarius energy.m, and we’ve already had several interesting finds over the last several months. There actually was a preview of this energy when Saturn went into Retrograde last Spring. So if you’re curious how this energy will play out, you might want to look back to that time at the structures in your life and think about what challenges you were dealing with. This influence can affect any part of our life.
The Lord of Karma, Saturn moves into Aquarius, and helps break up the restrictive energy we’ve been dealing with all throughout 2020. This powerful Capricorn Stellium (more than three planets in the same sign.) This shift is historic, as it moves humanity into a revolutionary energy,Which we’ve already seen play out around the world.
Aquarius energy is all about freedom, and it wants what’s good for “All.” More than ever, people will fight for not their rights, but they will also demand social justice and change. And generally speaking, people won’t give up on these kind of humanitarian issues very easily. This rare shift turns our focus into changing our awareness and consciousness as a whole. We can connect to the information we need throughout this time. There’s an opportunity to help each other be more supportive to our communities and grow to be more like family.
Aquarius energy is an intellectual one, so we will need to take a look at the “Bigger picture” under this influence, and how our actions affect our way of life for our future. This is an innovative time that will strongly advance our technology game, so we are headed into some amazing times.
Aquarius is the sign of the water bearer, but actually, it’s an Air sign. It is symbolized by the diversity of all ideas, big or small, being brought together and poured into oneness. Ruled by the planet Uranus, Aquarius carries a strong electromagnetic current, so it can cause sudden eruptions and disruptions to occur in our life. Aquarius energy can bring shocking news or surprises of all kinds. But it is also represented as the higher mind of the Cosmos, and it helps us think beyond normal time and space limits and past the ego. It’s a bridge between here and the heavens, as it relays messages or A-ha moments to us. This helps us connect directly to source or higher power energies and enhance ourknowingness.
During this shift into the Age of Aquarius, we must remain open-minded and be more willing to do things differently! There will be many technological advancements that can help improve our way of life here on Earth, over the next several years. We all can benefit greatly from the diversity of our brilliant ideas and what we bring to the table, like inventions and genius like thinking. Aquarius energy has a deeper belief and understanding that everyone is the same despite their differences. Saturn will challenge us to look at humankind as one entity and not separated. This energy has already played out in our lives, with such things as women’s rights and the Black Lives Matters movement! Therefore its energy has slowly been building to come together for awhile now.
Saturn is the planet that shows us how to follow the rules and do what is expected. It works hard to create order by restricting and blocking us, so we will learn how to be somewhat emotionally detached and make good solid decisions. As Capricorn’s ruler, Saturn’s energies are serious about taking care of business. It serves as a constant reminder to learn self-mastery skills and responsibility. Saturn is the Authority of the Zodiac, and the great teacher, so it requires us to do the work involved to grow and mature. Therefore, we may appear somewhat cold and cut off, but usually we are just more focused. This heavy feeling energy can be suppressive, as it puts limitations, restrictions, and Karma out to help us learn. But it’s lessons can be With Saturn in Aquarius, it can be easier to move beyond limitations in place from our past. It encourages us to think in ways that support our authentic self-expression and to honor our personal individuality. The emphasis is on healing the collective as a whole, as this energy is all about the oneness. Working towards the good of all is our common goal now. Aquarian energy is always about keeping things equal.
Saturn connects to Jupiter in Aquarius (the humanitarian) on December 21st, 2020, called the “Great Conjunction.” These two giants first meet up in the Karmic degree of completion at 29 degrees of Capricorn on December 15th. It’s time to let go of the behaviors, beliefs, and habits that we’ve been living by over the last 28 years! We should focus on the lessons we start to learnnow to move ahead into the future. This energy will help us usher in so many new things starting on the 21st, so we can close the door on the past.
Saturn wants us to be more committed towards each other and to the greater good by doing things in groups, and as teams in combined forces. This will be required to create a future full of abundance. Jupiter will provide this energy as it also shifts into the sign of Aquarius on December 20th! Saturn will not leave the sign of Aquarius until March 7th, 2023, when it moves into the sign of Pisces. Many karmic lessons will finally end that came together in 2020 at that time.
The Age of Aquarius energy is one of collective Unity. This energy can liberate us and teach us that we have the power to move forward as a society. And to let go of outdated systems that are no longer working for us. The world is entering a new and exciting age of evolution now. The age of Aquarius is upon us! Saturn always will make sure that we are held accountable but also be rewarded for our efforts, hard work, and the attention we give to each other.
I know this is a bit late but it’s been a wild week! I figured I would post the whole thing since much of the Astro Influences listed are still affecting us today and throughout November. 😉
Nov 1st – Nov 30th
November is another fairly wild month once again on the Astrological front. With Mercury, Mars, and Neptune all turning direct from Retrograde, the energies will be a bit confusing. There will be a constant push and pull kind of feeling taking us over. And there is a partial Eclipse coming together, which means business.
Mercury turned direct from its Retrograde phase, which set the tone for November on the 4th.
Which just happens to be the same day as the US Election. This can cause major confusion! There will be delays and opposition when it comes to the results. Still, this exciting energy provided by the Universe is a confusing time as it already is! So this just adds another layer of mental fog and stress.
Also, tense Mars is still in Aries and Retrograde. Mars starts up its aggressive Squares to the ongoing Stellium in Capricorn, which will be stronger in early December. Luckily, both Mercury and Venus are in Libra, for the time being, promoting diplomacy and justice; this will hopefully bring some more positivity into the mix for the time being.
By Mid-November, the Cosmic vibes get deeper and intense. So life is extreme, and our lessons can be more transformative with intellect Mercury rolling back into the sign of Scorpio on November 10th. Our intuition is strong, and we can experience profound insights into our lives and problems. With Mercury in Scorpio, the truth comes out, as this influence tends to open up all that is hidden, kept secret, regressed, and forgotten. We are more focused and driven, so we should use this energy to our advantage. We will be discovering other folk’s motivations, and the deeper the problems are buried, the better, as searching for what’s wrong is mentally satisfying.
The New Moon on November 15th is actually in the sign of Scorpio as well. Jupiter will still be in Capricorn and will conjunct Saturn the same day. That’s big stuff! These two heavy-hitting planets meeting up can be extremely heavy feeling and burdensome, so that we can feel quite drained by this influence. We may not be able to see the future possibilities as easily, as we may be quite focused on the negative. There can be restrictions imposed on us, and supplies can be reduced, especially with COVID-19 being at an all-time high now! We may be forced once again to lockdown! As this transit means business. But we also can discover brilliant ways to start new projects and solve problems because, after all, this is a New Moon. New Moon’s are new beginnings front and center, always! This could mean we have to say goodbye to something or realize that a chapter of our life might be coming to an end so that we can move forward.
On the 21st, Venus enters the sign of Scorpio, and love and relationships can get intense. Our relationships can become emotionally unstable. This a time of profound emotional growth and wild and crazy intimacy! Venus, while in Scorpio, brings intensity to our connections with other people of all kinds. There’s a carnal desire to understand why we are in certain close relationships, especially ones that are intimate and to do with business. This influence could ultimately be the driving force that reads some relationships apart.
Then, on the 21st, the Sun enters sunny feeling Sagittarius. Our focus shifts to our outer experiences and our desires grow stronger to have an adventure! We want to reach out to the world and connect to something bigger than ourselves. We are searching for what’s better or more expanded and are seeking a deeper knowledge than before. We can have more energy, and our self-confidence can grow stronger during this time. It’s important, to tell the truth, or at least your truth, and be more straightforward, outgoing, and idealistic as our minds are more open. Trying to keep things fair and less judgmental is important. Our personality is large, and we may need open spaces to be free and explore, so we enjoy outdoor activities. This is a great time for exercise of any kind.
And at the end of November, the energies will gain intensity once again when a Lunar Eclipse comes together in the sign of Gemini. The Full Moon is a partial Eclipse penumbral, to be precise, so luckily, this means not as intense! This Eclipse can present us with an issue that has us looking in many different directions and leaves folks feeling confused. Which means they are unable to make wise decisions. With the Sun in Sagittarius, we must look at the big picture and make sure our goals are aligned with our longer-term plans to head in the right direction to meet success.
The Sun shifted into the sign of transformation, and mystery, Scorpio. “Scorpio Season” begins Oct 22, 2020, and runs through Nov 21, 2020.
The mysterious Scorpio energy is known for being darker and often misunderstood. Symbolically, Scorpio energy drives us to explore the depths of the soul. As the Sun’s light exposes the truth, and all that has been hidden, repressed, secret, or ignored tends to come out. So if you’ve got any skeletons in your closet, clean it up now, or you might just get found out.
The Sun in Scorpio is a time of emotional depth, intimacy, and transformation. Therefore, whatever is fake or false is usually brought out and exposed for what it is, including conversations and betrayals. Superficial anything doesn’t work during this time, because we want the real deal. We need to know that people are genuine and authentic.
Scorpio is the detective of the Zodiac, so the Sun’s influence in Scorpio can have you feeling more suspicious and even a bit paranoid. We are more interested in getting to the bottom of things, as we want to uncover what’s hidden, suppressed, or unknown! It’s a time when we see the unseen with our uncanny Psychic abilities. So we can pick up on the energies around us very quickly. Even if we don’t trust our intuition, the signs are more evident than usual during this time. We enjoy things and people that are odd, taboo, or different in this energy, so anything plain or average is boring.
During Libra season over the last month, we worked towards being fair and equal. During Scorpio season, we accept the fact that life isn’t fair and understand that pain and suffering are part of the process of being human, and to truly evolve we must transform ourselves, which means we must end something to begin something anew.
Scorpio energy can have us feeling sexy, mysterious, and provocative. But we tend to be more secretive, as we feel more passionate, strong-willed, and often intense. This can be a time of transformation and healing.
The shadow side of Scorpio energy can have us feeling more jealous, paranoid, obsessive, and manipulative. We can become obsessed over an issue or problem, and try to figure it out repeatedly, and get nowhere as we continue to dig deeper to learn or understand someone or something. So we may not know when enough is enough or when to quit!
Mental Mercury is also in the sign of Scorpio through Oct 27, due to Mercury’s Retrograde (backward) cycle. It travels back through the sign of Libra on Oct 27 through Nov 9, and then goes back into Scorpio from Nov 10 – 30. So we will have a lot more Scorpio energy to contend with!
This Scorpio energy is about rising from the ashes after something ends. We have fallen in some way or have had to give up, like the tales of the Phoenix! It’s a time of rebirth and resurrection, as we rise to specific challenges and above what has fallen around us! Scorpio Season affects all Zodiac Signs, as this energy is something we can learn from. It’s about regeneration and claiming our lives back, as we start to rebuild after the wild and crazy year we’ve had. It’s the best energy to renew ourselves under, because Scorpio energy teaches us how to do what needs to be done, as it gives us extreme focus and stamina. We can be more driven and motivated to take care of business.
By the time we get to the end of November, and the end of Scorpio Season, hopefully, we will have some plans in place, since most of 2020 will be spent taking life day by day, and just surviving which is so exhausting. May this Scorpio Season illuminated by the Sun’s energy show you the way, and help you get through.
What a time to be alive as they say! The world has seemed to have gone mad in 2020, and to keep this exciting theme going the Cosmos is sending out some heavy-hitting energies this coming week starting August 10th. So forewarned is forearmed, and I have some information to pass on that hopefully will help you navigate through the tension Cosmic energies coming together!
Mars is making a tense Square to Pluto!
Mars the planet of aggression and passion is currently in its own sign of Aries, so this is warrior kind of energy. Pluto makes us thirsty for power and creates chaos, but it also brings deep personal transformation. Pluto is in security-based Capricorn currently stirring us up to gain power by marching to the beat of our own drum. This energy is like a match being lit to the flames that are already burning. Those who seek power or control on any level can get quite demanding, and just plain nasty, and especially manipulative during this time. We can struggle with any power plays or moves made on us by others, and we may have to deal with this kind of behavior from those who have some sort of authority over us, as we try to figure out just where we stand. This can be a time of great upset, trial, and tribulation. This influence can have us erupting in anger, and even rage! We are already seeing lots of upset globally, as people may not be able to handle the rage they feel deep inside over basic human needs and survival.
There are three frustrating squares between Mars and Pluto in 2020. The first one is on August 13th, but some will notice this energy starting up now!
When a planet meets up with Pluto they can get quite beat up by its demanding energy, and we can feel this energy and explore it deeply, as certain situations will play out bringing issues of power and control in strong focus in our lives! But war-like Mars loves a good fight, and this aspect challenges us to figure out who has the power and control in our lives. This can be with other people and society as a whole, (like things haven’t been already heated up enough with the powers that be in the US) but especially with those who have some sort of authority, power, or control over us, and of course those that want to! We might be asking who has the most power in the land. This square energy creates tension, but this helps us learn more about ourselves. Pluto has been connecting to many different planets this year putting us through major changes in our lives. We are already in a strong time of transformation, with powerful Pluto making its strong meetings this year also to stern Saturn and boosting Jupiter.
It’s most important that we pay attention to our reactions at this time, especially with authority figures. Try to figure out just what the real issues are underneath it all, and what’s causing our reactions. Anger is always about sadness, so perhaps you need to argue a bit so you can walk away from someone or something, and or even make a significant change! The best thing you can do is to remain respectful, and not fight below the belt while in this energy or it can get quite ugly! You also may want to think about controlling your responses to keep the damage down to a minimum, but you may not care, as there’s a stronger need to fight in the air right now. And some folks need to stick up for themselves and what they believe in, or for what is right. It’s something to definitely, ponder on, so you can use this energy for good.
The Sun in Cancer begins in the North with the Sumer Solstice on June 20, 2020, when the days and nights are equal in length in light and dark.
With the Summer Solstice arriving the Sun also shifts into the protective, sensitive sign of Cancer. The Solstices are important because they open doorways of energy that has become known as the Summer and Winter Seasons, and these special days hold some magical energies we can use to manifest what we want in our lives. The Sun will remain in Cancer until July 22, 2020.
While the Sun is in Cancer for the next month we are more focused on family time, and the days begin to grow longer which is good for making memories. This sign influence means we tend to stick close to home as we have a stronger need for security with our home and family.
Eclipses tend to bring out the truth, as the things that are hidden, repressed, secret, or unknown are revealed. This is a great vibe for teamwork even with the Sun in more private Cancer. If our expectations are unreliable or unrealistic than we will probably be let down. Keep yourself grounded and in your thoughts strong and in reality, it is for the best during this time. With Mercury in Retrograde this time around, this might be more challenging than usual.
The Cancer energies aren’t always as sensitive as people portray it to be, we can also feel quite ambitious like the other Cardinal signs, so we are more tenacious about reaching our business and professional goals. It’s important to take care of your social obligations, as all your activities outside of your home will be more successful when you have a strong and solid family and home base to fall back on. This helps keep everything on schedule.
When the Sun’s in Cancer, our thoughts naturally turn inward. This is a great time to reach out to loved ones that feel safe, and perhaps plan a very low-key get-together, or maybe finish up any home projects you’ve been needing to get done. We are looking for safety and protection around what we are creating, so we want to surround ourselves with what is secure and familiar.
The sign of Cancer is ruled by the Moon and so we can become a bit lunatic-like under its influence, especially if we are worn down, emotionally hurt, lonely, or overwhelmed. Our moods can go up and down rather quickly, so for the next month, we become more intimate with the waxing and waning of the Moon and all her phases.
Our everyday lives are experienced on a much deeper emotional level with the Sun in Cancer, (no matter your sign.) This is a time when we can worry more about our emotional security, so we are naturally more concerned with the things that affect us personally. Even if we are interested in what’s happening in the world, we tend to want to protect and nurture those that are close to home more so than usual.
Cancer is the Zodiac Sign of the Mother, which is representative of water, so things like coziness, closeness, emotional bonding, (or bondage, hehe!) are experienced with more depth at this time. This can be quite evident in our everyday lives, as we can be more reactive and impulsive when it comes to our emotional connections with people and places.
This is a highly emotional time in if itself, and depending upon how the other planets in the Cosmos are connecting to the Moon and Sun of course. But our initial reaction is usually to take the road less traveled with the Sun in Cancer. We will do whatever it takes to not be exposed because we tend to feel more vulnerable, including sidestepping direct confrontation, unless of course, we are doing the confronting. So if we lose control we can get a little crazy.
This charged up emotional energy tends to trigger some of our most tender spots, so we can become illogical if we get frustrated or feel picked on. It’s just best to not let yourself go there, as our emotions take the wheel for the next month. It can prove difficult to be objective or as open-minded during this time, as we can be a bit pessimistic in our way of thinking, (especially, with Mercury in Retrograde as well). It’s helpful to work at keeping those thoughts more positive, and we may have to really work at it at times.
We are tapped into the realm of Cancer with the Sun is in this sensitive sign for the next month. So we are at our most powerful when using the power of emotion, with people and our experiences. This gives these are connections more depth and meaning that come from the heart which is good practice for us to learn anyway. Work on being more kind and compassionate while the Sun is in Cancer.
Enjoy your Summer and Happy Birthday all my beautiful Crabs people, Cancers! ~Ruby
Rubys Astro Readings 🌟 First Part of June Astro Update For All Zodiac Signs 💫
There is so much going on in the world right now, I honestly didn’t have time to write all of June’s Astro Updates. But here is some info about the first half of the month, especially during the first week. ~Ruby
The first half of June 2020 can be a bit confusing, as underlying tensions seem to be coming out to be dealt with. Even though around the 3rd we could have some lovely things to say with the Sun/Venus Conjunction, a rather tense aspect when the Sun squares heated up Mars in Pisces can bring up and out the truth in our relationships, and that might not be so pretty. But at least we won’t have a problem being honest with each other.
The Sun conjuncts Venus from the 3rd to the 5th, and this might just be a welcome reprieve from all the hostility and anger of the past week. It won’t last too long folks due to the Full Moon energies and all the other cosmic connections underway. But we might just be able to find some light at the end of the tunnel, as our inner light gets to shine once again and take over the darkness. Use this time to find some inner peace within and hold onto that feeling, and hold onto that energy for as long as you possibly can!
The Full Moon in Sagittarius is also a Lunar Eclipse on the 5th, and this means it’s truth-telling time. So if you’ve got secrets you may want to come clean now before this energy hits. When the Full Moon gets into an intense square with both warlike Mars and delusional Neptune, our discussions may get too real, and our fantasies are called out for the illusions they are. It’s a time when mistakes are pointed out, and some folks may not be able to handle it. When Mercury forms a tense square to wounded healer Chiron at the same time self-doubt can kick in, and we can lose our confidence. During this time, it’s best to not believe everything you hear, read, or think. Depression may also set in, so make sure to keep communicating the way the Sun in Gemini intended, and talk to someone about your sadness.
From June 1st through the 10th, tensions will be high, especially when the Sun forms a tense square to Mars on June 6th. These influences are a test and we can be challenged by competitors and enemies. Basically, if things don’t calm down with the violence associated with the protests, a lot of people will feel like taking matters into their own hands and decide to come out and join the crowds, while hoping that things will calm back down. People are more than ready to take a stand now, but not allow their towns or businesses to be destroyed at the same time. The National Guard might just get called in, but only if it goes this far. The aspect coming together on June 6th will be felt during the first week of June and it is a build of angry energy. It could be from the lockdown due to the Virus, and the anger folks are carrying around from the events in Minneapolis last week. If you feel resentful or angry within yourself, try to do what you can peacefully, it’s ok to go to a March but don’t destroy property. Do not allow this rage to consume you. If we are not at ease within ourselves often the body will take on disease of some kind, so remember that.
As Mars transits through the sign of Pisces axnd the Sun in Gemini, there can be more lies, deceptions, and betrayal that comes out. Things are not what they seem and the media is not being completely honest on what they are reporting, go figure! There is a lot more happening behind the scenes with this crisis in the US. So there is more to the story! Life will not be peaceful during this time, so it’s important to find that space of peace within yourself during these times. There is a lot of emotional unrest with the planet of War, Mars being in the sign of Pisces the sign of healing over the next week.
On June 11th the Sun squares foggy Neptune, and motivated Mars is conjunct Neptune a few days later. This energy can make us feel like escaping from our normal routines, and doing something new or different. Otherwise, we can feel helpless and anxious. So don’t be discouraged if things don’t turn out exactly as you might have liked. Take a break and get away for a little while.
On June 18th, mental Mercury in Cancer (it has been slowing down and getting ready) as it goes into its Retrograde phase. So except for Mars, all the personal planets will appear to be moving backward through the Zodiac and be in their Retrograde phases. It is a good time to think about all that has happened over the last few months because my goodness has there been a lot! This is a time to go within yourselves and review all that you have been through and feeling. Work on healing yourselves and your hearts.
The Sun shifted into communicative Gemini on May 20th, 2020, and transits this sign through June 21st.
This influence usually brings about change and some disruption. One thing is for sure, we can struggle with feeling restless, nervous, or anxiety-ridden. The best thing you can do for that is to stay mentally and physically active! This is a chatty, communicative kind of energy, so lots of interesting conversations seem to occur during this time. But there’s is another side to Gemini’s twining energy that can have us feeling more withdrawn and reflective, so we can enjoy our alone time as well.
The sign of Gemini rules over things like friendship, and with Venus the Goddess of Love, also in Gemini and in Retrograde currently, we might meet up with certain people who have inspired us to be more romantic, beautiful, and artistic in the past. Allow these muses to help you move forward, but don’t get lost in your feelings, as the fantasy will eventually break and reality will come back in once Venus is out of Retrograde.
This highly stimulating energy can have our heads spinning with quick and fleeting thoughts. But since we thoroughly enjoy communicating during this time, and sharing ideas and opinions, we may reach out to others more so than usual. It’s a time to network and mingle, but remember social distancing. Our minds are moving quicker than usual, as our thoughts jump from one subject and task to the next. So stick to activities during this cycle that involves communicating like emails, paperwork, messaging or phone calls. It’s great energy for multi-tasking.
The shadowy side of this Gemini energy is we can be more easily distracted, and it can be more difficult to focus, so we can be unreliable without meaning to be. We may have to keep redirecting ourselves or others if we want to get things accomplished. We can be very hard working especially mentally, so we can burn out fast. Try to take breaks when you can and remember you can’t get it all done at once. Make lists, use Alexa or Google Home to set reminders, you’re going to need this help, as this can be an extremely busy Gemini Season, even more so than usual.
Mercury and Venus In Gemini – The reason why this is an incredibly busy Gemini Season, is because not only is the Sun in Gemini but so is relationship-ruled Venus and soon cerebral Mercury! This is our core-self, ego, heart, and mind all wrapped up in the Gemini energy. We can be sidetracked and scattered, as we readbetween the lines and feel the energies all around us.
Mercury rules our way of thinking, so our thoughts will move just that much more quickly over the next three and a half weeks. Under these influences doors of opportunity may swing wide open, but also they can slam shut! Problems can be easier to figure out because our empathy for others is so strong, and our psychic hunches are on point! Sincecommunicating is usually so much stronger during this cycle there will be a lot of information shared, so just don’t tell everyone all your business. Knowledge and diversity are more important at this time, and we can feel more sociable, intellectual, and curious under these influences. But our energies can scatter as a direct result of our curiosity and awareness. Being more communicative, and open to having conversations can lead to opportunities that we normally wouldn’t get a chance to discover.
If you feel overwhelmed by these energies your moods can change suddenly, and go up and down. Even if we feel good and are active, as we are still prone to nervousness and excitability. This can lead to feeling more frustrated, so we can blow up in anger quite quickly! And with Mars moving into Aries soon in June, (the planet that rules our motivation levels, passion, and anger) we can get riled up fast, so take some time to get calm if you get frustrated over something.
It’s a good time for gathering and processing information. Read, write, research, and take care of business or run errands. Make only short-term deals and no long-lasting commitments, because we are supposed to be just collecting information for now, as it can be important or valuable down the road. It’s also important to take breaks and get physical activity. This can help our minds relax, so we can get rest. A lot of folks suffer from insomnia and have issues with vivid dreams, both awake and asleep under such strong Gemini energy. Be social and look for different and interesting people to hang with. Your conversations may be quite informative during these cycles.
Hiya folks, I am just checking in on everyone! I hope you are being safe and are well during this very difficult time. I’m sending out Love & Light to all of you.
The planetary connections can help give us a source of comfort. Astrology helps us understand how the Cosmic influences are affecting us for the short and long term. This knowledge gives me peace of mind in the most difficult times, and my hope is through my April Astrology Forecast and Astro Blogs that they will help you feel the same way.
April will certainly continue to get a whole lot of attention this year as the Virus Peaks out in the US. It’s important to be together, even from a distance. With the COVID-19 Pandemic creating so much fear and devastation, our social interactions came to a screeching halt in March, so we are paying attention more than ever to what the Universe has in store for us next!
Over the next month or two, we will have to continue self-isolating, which means we are dealing with all of these Astrological energies alone in some way. If you play a big or small role in dealing with this Worldwide crisis, the bottom line is we are making history if we like it or not! We must help each other through it, and be brave. Don’t place too much energy into fear, but more so focus on your faith and or whatever source you believe in. This time to shall pass, and we all individually and collectively share our part in this story, which makes it even that much more important to be kind and respectful with one another.
This is an important time to see just how blessed we truly are, so we can make deeper connections to our loved ones. Please continue to practice some sort of healing, through sending out positive energies through meditation or prayer, or however, you want. Remember in ENERGY we are stronger together! This Virus does not care how old we are or what part of the world we are from. So sending out loving healing energies and good thoughts to everyone is so important at this time. Perhaps more so than ever!
Please continue to practice safe Social Distancing and Isolation, and continue to connect to your loved ones via social media of all kinds.
Many blessings to all. Be Safe & Well. ~Ruby
For All Zodiac Signs
April Astrology Forecast
April 3: Venus enters Gemini
The planet that rules over our relationships travels through this sign of information. This helps us meet interesting people and can bring fresh new energy and ideas into our relationships. Since we are already in self-isolation this is a good time to look up a class online and learn something new. Maybe take a class on something you have never done before, and acquire a new skill. Venus will actually be in the sign of Gemini for quite a while, until August 7th due to its upcoming Retrograde cycle that starts on May 13. It’s time to get rid of old ideas and routines and perhaps try something different. This is a time to change things up every so often in your relationships and around your finances.
April 3: Mercury conjuncts Neptune
Mercury rules over our thinking, communicating, and perception. Neptune’s influence symbolizes our imagination, spirituality, and deceptions. At its best, this is a strong imaginative duo that can help inspire us. The shadow side, can make us vulnerable and gullible and we can believe things that are simply too good to be true or that isn’t even real. It’s important to not believe what people tell you during this time and look into things first to make sure it’s the real deal.
April 4: Venus trines Saturn
This aspect can help stabilize our relationships. It brings in some safety and support from those that hold positions of power or authority. Take this time to socialize, and you might just find ways to advance both your personal and business relationships. This produces lots of good feeling vibes, so we can be better received by others. As things seem to go our way for the next few days.
April 4: Jupiter conjuncts Pluto
Jupiter the planet of luck and expansion conjuncts Pluto, the planet of evolution and transformation every 13 years. This is an extremely powerful energy and we can feel it strongly! We need to think about what we want to do with our lives, and what we want to accomplish. This big energy can have us feeling so incredibly powerful that it can help us get on the path towards something amazing!
April 7: Mars Squares Uranus
There will certainly be some big changes made suddenly or unexpectedly under this influence. So be ready or you can be caught by surprise. As the action planet, Mars gets some big messages from rebellious Uranus. You may feel like standing up for yourself or breaking free from people or circumstances. If you can go with the flow you can do well. Don’t let whatever is happening in the world throw you off balance, (I know easier said than done.) Use this fresh energy and any new ideas you have to form new plans. During this time get creative and innovative, andmost importantly be true to yourself.
April 7: Full Moon in Libra
The Full Moon this month is inrelationship ruled Libra, which means the Sun is in the opposite sign, self-serving Aries. As usual during a Full Moon, ouremotions are ramped up, and there’s a dynamic between self and others during this time. Pluto, currently in Capricorn forms a strong connection called a T-square to the Full Moon. This energy can make us feel intense and pressured, as this is a time when we need to let something go. This can be a person, situation, relationship, or just an old worn-out attitude.
April 11: Mercury enters Aries
The planet of communication Mercury enters bold, and inspiring Aries. This brings new insights and ideas that can help us make our plans or projects more interesting, which can lead us into new directions. This is a good time to connect with people, those who are of like mind that makes you feel more excited about life. This energy can encourage us to break free from unhealthy past habits, to embrace the future.
But we must keep in mind that Aries is known as the God of War. So do your best not to argue, or you could end up wasting your time and energy, and all of thosegreat ideas will never have a fighting chance to get off the ground. Instead, direct your energy towards meeting goals and reaching achievements. We’ve got through April 27th to take advantage of this influence and make something happen.
April 14: Sun squares Pluto
Forewarned is forearmed as they say! When the Sun in Aries squares off with Pluto in Capricorn in this day, some of you will have to deal with a person who wants to through their Power around, and they can be quite dominating. There seem to have their very own agenda or situation, so they may ask you to make some sort of change or adjustment to your plans just to serve their needs. Just be flexible when possible. It’s important to think about others and their needs and to listen more carefully than usual. But you still may be challenged by this influence, so make sure you are also empowering yourself along the way. Don’t be too stingy, but also don’t give everything away. If you take some time to think you’ll know what needs your attention the most.
April 19: Sun enters Taurus
With so many changes going on in the world right now this energy might be a welcome slow down. This is Taurus season, when the Sun enters the more stable sign of Taurus. This sign keeps the energies more practical and grounded, but it’s also very slow-moving, as it’s a lesson for all of us is to enjoy life and to stop and smell the roses. This influence can make us feel antsy even more so about self-isolating and being quarantined. So we need to make sure to continue social distancing. This energy can be quite helpful during a time when people are anxious and impulsive feeling, but they can overreact especially in complicated situations. It’s a good time to pay more attention to finances and our material security. This transit gives us the energy, and stamina to be more determined to succeed. Use these next four weeks to take care of your basic needs. Then you’ll have a more solid foundation to build upon, once it’s over.
April 21: Sun squares Saturn
Four times a year these two square off together, and this opens a door to some valuable opportunities that can help us rid ourselves of what is no longer needed in our lives, especially in our activities. This gives us a bird’s eye view of any plans or ideas we have that are impractical. We can see more clearly who is helpful in our world and who isn’t! This is a time to make smart, informed decisions that can help you hopefully in the long run.
April 22: New Moon in Taurus
This New Moon is in the sign of a more grounded and practical Taurus. This helps us slow down and take some time to get refocused. Our material things and what we value seems more important. Many of you will have already received your”Stimulus” money from the government around this time, so this energy can be quite helpful when it comes to sorting our finances. Take some time to plan your finances and think about how you want to make, spend, and save your money. This will be the right mix of energies to get ahead and maybe start something fresh when it comes to your finances. Also get organized and go through your things and sort out what you no longer use or need, perhaps recycle or donate stuff.
April 25: Mercury squares Pluto
The planet of communication in hot-headed Aries makes a tense square to Pluto in a Capricorn. This stirs up tensions, so it’s extremely important to recognize who or what is bugging you. Someone might be getting on your last nerve. People usually don’t get along so well under this energy. Even though you may be full of bright ideas, and you probably already know exactly what it is you want to do, you may have to deal with those who test or challenge you. Don’t allow this energy to take you off your path. Keep fighting to get what you want!
April 25: Pluto goes Retrograde
How do you use your own personal power? Some folks embrace it and want more. While it makes other people more nervous when they have it! And some people refuse to take control of anything in their life, even though they really need to. So when Pluto goes Retrograde, there are power shifts, and some people fall from a place of power, and there’s a lot of folks who make plays or try to gain power from others. This is a good time to think about what exactly you have control over, and where your personal power is held. Think about your goals during this cycle, and what you want to achieve! Over the next several months, while Pluto is in its Retrograde cycle we get an opportunity to think about how we want to move our life forward again once this cycle is over. What will make us happier and more fulfilled? Pluto will be retrograde until October 4th.
April 26: Sun Conjuncts Uranus
The Sun meets up with unpredictable Uranus today. This means many of you will begin some sort of journey that can help you let go of old habits, and negative ways of thinking about yourself. This is a time of liberation! This isn’t always the most stable of Cosmic energies. But you have more positive experiences if you roll with the tides of this influence. And don’t let any unexpected changes throw you off your game, keep a positive attitude. Keep your mind open and let the past be just that, in the past where it belongs. This is a time for new and innovative ideas. Most importantly be true to who you are, and make sure and allow other people to express their desires, and to show off their special gifts and talents as well.
April 27: Mercury enters Taurus
The planet of communication shifts into a mental slowdown when it enters the practical sign of Taurus. We can let this frustrate us, or take it as a time to pay attention to the important details of our lives. It’s time to feed the senses and delve into what is more pleasurable in life. It might be difficult to just settle into this energy, and really enjoy it due to how difficult things have been for all of us. But if you let the drama go and relax, you can experience something enlightening. Don’t let anyone push you or rush you into doing anything, if you will find a nice quiet place you can Zen out, somewhere you can listen to your higher self and your guides. Most decisions won’t need to be made immediately, but make sure you keep your choices on the practical side and go over all your options first.
