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.

The Cosmic energies have been rather interesting, to say the least, but it’s just a sign of the times. For right now all the planets are moving forward, so we are not totally stuck even though we may feel like it, especially when it comes to defeating the Coronavirus. The planets are actually supporting us now and all of our efforts. But there are still rough times ahead, but just know all the things people are doing to combat this situation is going to make a difference in time, even if we don’t see any major changes just yet. But if we look at China so far, it is encouraging as folks see starting to do life again with a small degree of normalcy. Even though the US and Italy seem to still be peaking extremely frustrating! However, there is a light at the end of this tunnel, and it will grow bigger and eventually things will get better! Keep your distance from others and stay safe.
The strong Saturn-Pluto Conjunction that slowly started building energy last Winter, and peaked January 12th, was already sounding the alarm that there was going to be some major events taking place that could disrupt our lives, especially if we didn’t make some changes fast! But it was already too late. We’ve seen what happened in the past when these two heavy-hitting planets tensely squared up in long-term cosmic connections, and one thing it always seems to do is bring about some sort of major illness. This influence restricts us and purges us. Even though Astrologers didn’t know exactly how this influence was going to go down, it’s now grown out of control. But look at all the amazing stories of people helping each other, and all the lives that have been saved as well! It would be such a sad thing if we just focused on the negative and the loss. Yes, we must continue to honor those we have lost, and fight, be a voice for those who are sick now and need our help. Please continue to practice social distancing as we keep being told, at this time it is the only way to combat the Virus! Please stay home as much as possible for the time being.
For now, there are still so many planets in the sign of Capricorn like Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto, and the Moon’s South Node Destiny Point. This creates an energy that breaks structures down, everything from businesses to relationships, and our own fears are being brought out psychologically to work through. We are basically being made to rebuild any structures that are weak in any part of our lives, so this can be in our relationships, business, and it can be even about our attitude, as we holding on to outdated beliefs and behaviors. It’s time to make changes and to question yourself. Then we can create more solid foundations. All of this Capricorn energy affects governments, hospitals, schools, and large organizations. The Cosmos is making sure things are restructured and re-organized, and this theme will continue to go on through November of 2020. There will be continued economic shakiness for the rest of the year due to this influence, but it all won’t be necessarily as bad as it is now, but we will have to remain patient to come back from this.
The end result of the COVID-19 Virus outbreak is the economy will be more sustainable, and that means stability at both home and work once folks are back to working and doing life again. There will and have already been many positive things that will come from these challenging times. But for now, while we are in the process of changing the old worn-out structures around us, we should expect challenges when it comes to employment and business. This can continue to be an issue through June at the least. Hopefully, we will return to some sort of normal life but make no mistake, we are forever changed in many ways as well. There also will be some massive changes that start back up again in November, and no one is too sure how it will play out, or if it will be anything like the Saturn/Pluto Conjunction energy we have been dealing with. But I will explain that influence later.
Saturn entered more future-oriented Aquarius March 22nd, this is the age of Aquarius. The song made it seem so much nicer, lol! This is a brand new Karmic path we have landed on, which means each of us individually is affected differently. But no matter what part of our lives are being restructured, one thing is for certain, it’s not started off too easy!
Since we just went through the New Moon energy last week, we should be putting a plan together. One that entails how we can deal better with what is happening in the world right now, and for the next month. Make your plans personal. It’s time to be taking things day by day. And if you Set Intentions or work with the energies of the Moon then start making out plans month to month, or New Moon to New Moon, which is the time of the month we should be focusing on what we want to create or manifest in our lives, as it is the time for new beginnings.

Astrology Notes for the rest of March
March 28 – 30 – The Good Stuff
Finally some good news! This weekend a great time to come up with something innovative, it’s a time when we have many creative ideas and solutions when it comes to making financial gains or money.
Venus Trine Jupiter
This lovely Cosmic pair up brings gifts and can bring in financial gains. So some finally good news around money! This started coming together Friday, and the new stimulus package, (and I realize it’s not nearly enough for so many and doesn’t cover some of the things we need right now, especially medically) it is a start. This can be an especially lucky and abundant time. Some of the Earth-Sun signs like Capricorn and Taurus can be extra lucky during these few days.
Venus Trine Pluto – Love Rules
This is an especially strong time to build trust in already existing relationships and friendships. You can find yourself bonding strongly with someone new as well. We must keep our distance right now, and continue social distancing to stop the Virus, luckily technology is on our side right now. We can chat and text our loved ones. Spend more time in one way or another with the people you love, safely during this time. This is a good energy to reconnect in, as many of you are probably already doing.
March 30 – May 13 – Mars Enters Aquarius
Mars the planet of motivation, drive, sex, and war shifts into the sign of Aquarius. And we are ready to be more social than usual, which is good to help each other. But remember social distancing folks! Take it seriously, it’s a very real thing. There’s going to be a stronger urge than usual to socially interact with others, and our friendships will be more important also. Stay connected however you can just be safe!
This is also a good cycle for humanitarian work to be developed and organized, which we so desperately need. This is not a lazy kind of energy at all, we are more motivated to help each other. This is a time when we can create products or services, or invent something that helps humankind! So get creative and allow those innovative ideas to flow and come to the surface. As they will be strong and should be shared with others.
March 31 – Mars Conjuncts Saturn
This connection is more difficult at times. Stay away from social media and the news on this day! Don’t let the negative thoughts take over and bring you down. It’s more important than ever to raise your vibrations and to keep grounded, this helps us keep things calmer if possible, which can assist us in saving lives, and keeping people more stabilized as we go through this strong time of loss.
Hang in there folks, we are all in this together. And stay safe and be well. Love & Light ~Ruby

March Astro 2020 Monthly Forecast
March 3: Venus Squares Saturn Our relationships can be challenged and tested, as reality checks our served during this time about our feelings for others and how they feel about us! What we see in other people isn’t always what we get! It’s important to make sure we keep things real around this time, so be honest because fake simply won’t do. And if you realize something or someone isn’t working out so well, perhaps it’s time to think about letting it go.
March 4: Mercury Enters Aquarius in Retrograde On February 16th, Mercury the messenger of the Zodiac turned Retrograde (appears to move backward) in the sign of Pisces. But now Mercury shifts into more free-spirited Aquarius, and this brings in a new fresher kind of energy that helps lift our point of view. It’s a good time to go over and review our conversations and think about our options. Take a break from making any important decisions at this time, as mistakes are made more often. Making pros and cons lists can help us make up our minds when it comes to more complicated decisions. Stay away from buying anything that has to do with communication like smartphones or computers. Keep track of receipts and important paperwork for later, and avoid signing contracts or making long-term commitments at this time. During Mercury’s illusionary backward dance we should be reviewing our life, but wait it out when it comes to making important decisions until after Mercury turns direct from Retrograde on March 9th.
March 4: Venus enters Taurus Venus rules over its home sign of Taurus, and affects our money and relationships. Money matters are more important now, but we are more focused on how money impacts our close relationships. This is a good time to discuss money matters with partners, family members, and business partners. We should be paying more attention to our finances, and maybe set some money back for a special purpose or just a rainy day. It’s a good time to plan out future endeavors, but try not to act just yet! It’s all too easy to buy more luxurious expensive things during this time. With Mercury in Retrograde until the 9th, it’s just best to wait. Unless you want to deal with a mess later.
March 8: Sun conjuncts Neptune The Sun in the sign of Pisces joins up with spiritual Neptune. This influence is trying to teach us to have more faith in ourselves and the Universe, so we should be connecting to our intuition and following our gut instincts. This is the right energy for being creative and using our imagination, as it can lead to success. This is a time of idealism, dreams, and spirituality. It might be more difficult keeping your feet on the ground with your head in the stars.
March 8: Venus conjuncts Uranus This is a highly charged up energy, one that can make us feel quite happy and sparkly. Expect the unexpected, especially in your relationships and around your finances. We can meet someone randomly who is captivating. There’s a strong desire to change something or to mix something up in our relationships, business, or work. Give the ones you love some space, it actually will help bring you closer together under this energy.
March 9: Full “Super” Moon in Virgo This Full Moon is focused on the details of our lives. But we should put our time and attention on being practical and taking care of the basics. This energy can be quite draining, so make sure and get enough sleep, and plenty of exercises and eat healthy food. It’s important to be building up our immunity.
If we make an effort to connect to this powerful Pisces energy, it can help us learn how to work with our intuition, which can help us make better choices in our life.
Full Moons are about endings, so it’s a good time to take care of unfinished business. Clear out old and cluttered space and negative energy! We will need every drop of our energy and attention to take advantage of the fiery New Moon in Aries on March 24th, which is about new beginnings.
March 9: Mercury Retrograde Goes Direct! Even though this time is usually annoying so it seems with electronic glitches and snafus, Mercury in Retrograde can also be a time to gather information, and review past thoughts and conversations to learn something new or better.
Over the last three weeks hopefully while the planet of communication, Mercury was Retrograding you took some time to review your life, and plan out your next moves more carefully. If you waited patiently to make important decisions, your effort will be rewarded. So don’t worry about expressing what you need now. Get out there and network, reach out to others who are in a position to help you, for example with that job you want, or with that guy/gal you really are crushing on, or if your planning something. This is the time to start communicating all that you’ve learned while Mercury was in Retrograde, so you can start to slowly move forward with your plans.
March 11: Sun sextiles Jupiter The ethereal Sun in Pisces connects to Jupiter in practical Capricorn, and our imaginations sync up with our knowledge. This is the feel-good lucky energy we all need, as it can bring in abundance and golden opportunities. But we need to be paying attention to take advantage of this influence and make something happen. We can meet up with people who are inspiring, visionaries, or whom are beneficial to us in some way, and they can help us see things from a new or different perspective. This can make the world look and feel a little bit different, which helps us break old patterns, behaviors, and routines. So get out there and make something happen, and don’t miss this amazing opportunity!
March 14: Mars sextiles Neptune Under this influence we have yet another opportunity, accept this time it’s to move forward with any projects or plans we’ve been working on. Mars the planet of aggression, desire, and action motivates us when it meets up with idealistic and spiritual Neptune. Our imaginations get a major boost of energy, and what we might have thought couldn’t happen seems to have a way of working out usually in a more positive manner. There will suddenly be reinforcements that come to our rescue now. All you have to do is help this energy along, and make the most of the help you are offered. Never turn down a gift from the Universe.
March 14: Sun sextiles Pluto This aspect only occurs twice a year, so we only get a very short period of time to take advantage of it. People of influence or authority will be paying attention now, so those who are in positions of power are more willing to help, so be determined to get their attention. If we do get a chance to connect with someone important we can make progress. And if we already understand the give and take of relationships, we can experience even more success!
March 16: Mercury Re-enters Pisces Our imagination soars when mental Mercury enters the more sensitive waters of Pisces. This is very Psychic, sensitive, and visionary energy. If you can focus on what it is you want, you can use this transit to help you visualize your goals, plans, and dreams through April 11th. It is believed that the Universe doesn’t see this physical reality on Earth as the ultimate truth, so if you think about what you want and then feel it, they don’t know the difference and you can manifest your thoughts and feelings into being! Believing is seeing!
It’s a good time to Zen it out, folks, while Mercury is in Pisces (Mercury rules the mind and communication.) So spend this time practicing spiritual activities like meditation, journal-writing, yoga or walking, or doing anything that helps you connect to your spiritual self. Dreams both awake and asleep are full of messages at this time, and there can be some interesting information the Universe is trying to pass along, so pay extra close attention! The shadow side of this energy is we can feel foggy and sidetracked once again, as we were already in this energy for a while last month before Mercury went Retrograde. It can prove difficult to focus and we can lose concentration quickly.
March 19: Sun enters Aries Every year around this time the Sun enters the sign of Aries, and this officially kicks off the Spring Equinox above the Equator, and the Fall Equinox below, this is a time for new beginnings for those of us who are in the Spring Equinox. This transit gives us a warrior spirit with a strong heart. This can help us accomplish our goals. The influence of this sign can help ALL of us feel more confident and bold, so we can work better on projects and plans, and initiate something.
March 20: Mars Conjuncts Jupiter This is an interesting transit with Warrior Mars connecting to expansive Jupiter. We can feel like things are chaotic and out of control. This is a time when we tend to be quite impulsive and overdo things. Jupiter makes energies bigger and grand, while Mars is the planet of action and aggression, and when expanded can give us some crazy but strong energy that we can use to help motivate us to work on projects and goals. We can have lots of irons in the fire under this influence, and we just might have to let some things go, because we are so busy.
March 21: Saturn enters Aquarius This is a huge, Major Shift in the Cosmos! Saturn is the planet that rules over structures, taking responsibility and being accountable for our actions. It helps us draw boundaries, accept limitations, and deal with restrictions. We must learn to do what we are told and follow the rules when Saturn is involved.
Every two and a half years Saturn enters a new Zodiac Sign. While Saturn was in practical but ambitious Capricorn our focus was more on getting ahead and making plans so we could find something secure to build upon in this life. But with Saturn now in the sign of Aquarius, our focus shifts to helping with humanitarian efforts, and groups of like-minded folks, or those who are fighting for the same cause. So we are more interested in networking, friendships, and socialization. It’s a good time to find your Soul Tribe folks! Think about who you want to hang out or associate with. So we need to focus on plans and goals that involve others. This is not a time to go it alone, instead, we should stand together.
March 23: Mars conjuncts Pluto This is a strong potent influence, and it can potentially lead to something you’ve been wanting to achieve. We just have to make sure and keep control of ourselves, and not abuse our power, but direct it along with our passion for what we want. Letting go and allowing others to help us can bring in important people who can help us meet goals. Acting out of control and alienating the ones who are trying to help us can be problematic, so try to fix these problems. We must be mindful of not reacting under this influence, but remember this energy can have us all over the place! Over-reacting can lead to major problems. If we can keep our cool and be good to others and maybe help them out, we are going to in return feeling good about ourselves and hopefully clear some Karmic Debt along the way!
March 24: New Moon Aries A New Moon is a time of New Beginnings, and the sign of Aries is all about starting or initiating something new and fresh starts. This energy wants us to move forward and take action. This gives us more drive to take some necessary steps towards our goals and dreams. Just keep in mind that Aries is a tough sign, and is the warrior of the Zodiac and therefore we need to be more mindful while chasing down our dreams.
March 28: Venus trines Jupiter and Pluto The planet of love is in its home sign of more loyal Taurus, and is getting some help from its friends Jupiter and Pluto, both in more ambitious Capricorn. This aspect can help us in our business relationships, as those in a position of power can come to our aid in some way. In our personal relationships, there can be some transforming energies that are very powerful and intense. Some of you might fall in love during this time, as we can make deep authentic connections with others, and we won’t have it any other way. If you want real love, this is a time to let go and surrender to the power of what this transit is offering.
March 30: Mars Enters Aquarius This marks a big change, and we should get used to thinking outside the box now. Passionate, motivated Mars leaves simple Capricorn for independent Aquarius. This is a time for us to get creative and innovative. If you can tap into the active energy of Mars and the determination of Aquarius, you might just reach goals you didn’t think were possible.
March 31: Mars conjuncts Saturn This is not the kind of energy to be wasting our time in, as authoritative Saturn demands we take actions around our responsibilities. So we can be in a big hurry to get our to-do lists done, but we might run into obstacles and roadblocks along the way. We shouldn’t get too frustrated if we can’t do everything we want, as this is actually a good time to get more detailed about what it is you want to do with your life. This connection demands that we be disciplined and patient, which makes it a good time to work at it. Saturn serves as a reminder, that if we do a job that we need to do it right or it’s not worth it. We can make this influence easier if we work on the tasks we know we need to get done first, and if we apply ourselves we’ll be better able to get more things done.

There’s a New Moon occurring soon, which makes this the best time of the Lunar Month to set some powerful intentions. These Wish ListsIntentions can be about your future goals. Learning how to work with the cycles of the Moon can be a life-changing experience.
During a New Moon cycle, we should be asking the Universe for new beginnings, by planting seeds of intention from our heart and getting in touch with our higher-self. It’s a good time to be grateful for what we have, so we can work on manifesting what energy we want to come into our lives next. We can create whatever it is we desire, such as a better life, more money, happiness, or even love! It really doesn’t matter, but we have to take an action, both, physically and spiritually, together, to make it really happen and stick! And no, not everything you want is going to just magically appear. But you will more than likely get put on the path towards your wishes, even if you don’t realize it and that sometimes take time, so be patient. But it’s nice to know at least we are headed in the right direction.
Also, just sometimes when you Set Intentions with the New Moon energy amazing things happen and you get what you want very quickly!
At least by “Setting Intentions” with the energy of the New Moon, you’ve made it clear to the Universe what path you’d like to begin heading down and that’s a start. Then the energies will begin to line up to get you there, and if you continue to stay persistent and connected, and keep doing this work it truly can change your life circumstances for the better. I am like those old commercials, I don’t just talk about it, I have lived it! LOL! And this work, just works! It’s that simple.
The intentions that are set during a New Moon will set you on the right path towards your desires. The New Moon is a magical time of New Beginnings when you can recharge your goals with new energy. During the New Moon, we often experience some sort of major “energy shift.”
Here are some ideas on just how to Manifest under a New Moon:
1. Get clear about something you want and write it down.
2. Share your Intentions with someone in a supportive way, who will be encouraging.
3. Do something to demonstrate your commitment to your intention. For example, taking even a small action around what it is your asking to create! Send an email, move something in your house, or make a phone call perhaps.
4. Acknowledge that you did what you said you would, and then take the next step.
So have a conversation with the Universe (meaning your higher power, God, Source Energy, higher-self, Guides, Angels, etc), and work with the New Moons energy to help illuminate the path that will lead you toward your deepest desires. Simply ask to be led to what you’re choosing to manifest. Remember to be patient and simply allow the time needed, things don’t always happen right away, as we can get taken down certain paths to find our way to what it is we’re looking for. And sometimes magic just happens, you just never know!
What if you don’t know how to “Set Intentions” under the New Moon?
Follow the Steps below to learn how:
Step One: Clear Your Sacred Space
Clear the energy of the area or room you’re using to do any New Moon work. Think about where you are going to do this work, because we create an energy vortex wherever we sit or sleep. This is mainly why you feel so good in your favorite chair, because it’s comfortable and feels safe and secure, but also because you have created an energy vortex in that spot or space.
You are simply calling in some positive energy to work with. Burn some Sage or Incense and clear the energies! Maybe say a blessing or a special prayer that helps you feel cleared and protected. Next, close your eyes and breathe deeply and call upon your Guides, Angels, or higher power and ask to have your sacred space cleared, and then to fill up the special space you are working in with the energy of light, love, and protection. Never leave energy empty, always fill it with something once you’ve cleared it. Never leave a VOID when working with energy.
Step Two: Set the atmosphere
Set the mood for your New Moon Ritual and burn some special incense, light some candles (colors of candles do have different energies and meanings), and play some music that helps you feel spirituality connected. This can be a very different experience for everyone, just make sure to use whatever colors, music, and tools that make you feel calm, centered, and peaceful.
Step Three: Setting Intentions
You’re going to need a notebook, paper, or a journal and something to write with.
Now write what energy you’d like the Universe to bring in. Simply write your deepest desires, wishes, and questions. Think about what energy you’re trying to manifest or create. Write a letter, like as if you are talking to an old friend. Think about what energy you’re trying to bring into your life, and be detailed about what you want to see happen next in your life, and what energies you’re willing to work with.
As you’re doing this work and Setting your Intentions, here are some helpful questions you can think about. For example; ask for what you’re choosing or what changes you would like to see in your life? What are you or should you be calling in? How do you feel about what is happening in your life now? What do you want to change and create?
Think about your long-term goals and future. Be careful about focusing too much on the how, why, and when’s around how you will get what you want! Instead, focus more on what it is you are choosing and how you want to FEEL. See the end result! Only see the ultimate ending and again what it feels like when you receive what it is you are choosing! What you see in your mind’s eye, so don’t focus on how you get it, or the hurdles you have to jump, or sacrifices you may have to make. Just allow the Universe to shoulder the burden for you once you have requested what you want and let them take care of the rest. Have some faith in something. Rule # One is always energy follows thought, it will come to you in one way or another, or you’ll be put at least on a path towards your goals.
Step Four: Visualize
It’s time to visualize what you have written. Close your eyes and take some long deep breaths, so in your nose and out your mouth. Repeat this about 4 or 5 times. See the energy of your heart center, that’s in the middle of your chest, not over your pumping heart but your spiritual heart or commonly referred to as the “Heart Chakra.” Visualize yourself in what you are actually trying to create or manifest. For example: see yourself living in that new home, falling in love with that Soul-Mate, or driving that new car. Just don’t think it folks, make sure and FEEL IT, as if you were really experiencing what you’re visualizing!
Allow the Universe to show you which paths to follow over the next month, and look for any signs or symbols that will help you along your journey, so you may bring in what you truly desire and let go of what you don’t want! Don’t forget to show gratitude in some way and tell the Universe or Moon thank you in advance.
You also might gain some clarity around something or someone that is not serving your higher good, and they actually could be blocking you from your desires. So, in other words, pay attention after you’re done doing this work so you can clearly understand what the Universe is trying to show you!
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
