Time of Astrological Retrogrades & Eclipses
By Ruby

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

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

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

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

Retrograde Planets Timeline

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Good Luck!

Full Moon – Inner Struggle

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Have a Safe and Blessed Full Moon.

Neptune Retrograde – “See through the Illusions”

Standard

yh
Neptune Retrograde
By Ruby

“See through the Illusions”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

URANUS ENTERS TAURUS 2018

Standard

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Personal changes caused by this aspect:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Pluto Retrograde in Capricorn

Standard

 

Pluto starts its reverse movement into Retrograde on April 22nd and runs through September 30th! Pluto Retrograde isn’t as glitchy as Mercury or Saturn in Retrograde, so you may hardly notice it unless you work with a lot of people and know their deeper emotional issues. But you will recognize it more so on a deep psychological level within yourself if you’re aware of your feelings and get in touch with your soul purpose. The planet of deep analysis normally takes us more inward, but in Retrograde it becomes a journey into hidden realms we may not have dealt with, so the feelings we’ve been holding on to or repressing can come out in the open.

Pluto Retrograde in the sign of Capricorn can be beneficial, if we are observant and pay close attention to any unconscious patterns or behaviors that motivate our actions, then we can change or break them. Pluto is all about power so authority figures or anyone who represents authority, and those anyone who has power over us may catch our attention, or we suddenly are on their radar, so we may have to be careful and follow the rules for now, especially with Saturn the “Authority Figure” or “Father” of the Zodiac also in Retrograde!

During the end of April be extra cautious for tempers and hot-heads, as Mars and Pluto make a challenging but powerful connection on April 26th. This energy will be even stronger because of Pluto coming to a standstill just days prior.

Pluto Retrograde is like Saturn, so it has a regular cycle every year that lasts for five months, as it makes an opposition to the Sun. Outer planets just affect us in a very different way then the inner planets. The effects are more subtle at first until we move past this cycle and can look back in hindsight, and then we realize just how this time might have been life-changing in some way! Perspective is always an issue when planets are Retrograde, remember, so even though Pluto in Retrograde isn’t probably causing you strange technical glitches or annoyances it still makes its presence known in a sneaky sort of stealth kind of way. When Pluto goes Retrograde it’s a good time to reflect on how we are doing with changes and our soul transformation.

Pluto Retrograde is a time of reflection on power and control in your life. If there are people who are trying to control or manipulate you then now is the perfect time to let them go! If you’ve been too controlling of others or situations then it’s time to stop it and change your behavior! This is not a time to abuse any kind of power you have over others, so avoid power trips, and make this a time for eliminating.

Themes that seem to repeat and events that are almost fated will help you reinforce which of your controlling habits, addictions, compulsions, or prejudices now must be eliminated, or Pluto will make these issues more relevant, so it feels like a giant spotlight gets shined on the problem to be analyzed and reviewed very intensely, but again you may not even be aware of it until it’s over with. What isn’t working, like poor health, an attitude that is hateful or that causes suffering may be burned away now, released and offered up to the Universe. What’s left and what is working will be more clear and enhanced into pure energy.

Relationships are going to go through a strong period of adjustment during Pluto’s Retrograde cycle. There will be more love, and sharing, and more folks standing together for their lives’ causes. It’s a good time to keep a low profile as privacy can be your strongest tool during this time. It’s a time to dissolve, so do it with dignity and respect.

In your relationships, you might have been controlling, possibly holding on too tight and smothering your partner. It’s time to stop because you need to start letting go. If you have been compulsive or obsessive about food, drugs, or sex and it’s taken over your life, then certain events may actually force you to turn it around and gain control over it. Basically, the more destructive your behavior the more extreme your cycle of detoxing and withdrawal might be during this cycle. For example, if you just stopped doing something cold turkey, Pluto Retrograde makes it a very intense process.

~Pluto’s energy can be profound and will do what it needs to, to transform dark to light!

Pluto often is represented by the Phoenix, and as the Phoenix rises from it the ashes, is how it transforms us, which you may not realize at first, but you’ll know because you’ll feel it! Pluto is in the sign of Capricorn for now, and Pluto represents destruction, making order out of chaos, it helps to clear obstacles, detox, resurrect! Capricorn is the builder of the Zodiac, it likes to renovate. Together they restore and enhance with the very best materials and devices that modern times has to offer! Sustainability is what they represent. Capricorn is the Father, so he is dedicated, powerful, responsible, and stable! Also, Saturn is Capricorn’s ruling planet, so these energies will truly help us be productive, at least for those of you who put forth the effort. Intuition will be very strong, work will be focused right at the critical points where things need to get fixed or done.

It’s been a busy week on the Astrological front with the Cosmos making some pretty big shifts!

There’s been a lot of chaos over this last week, and this Sunday another planet is about to make a major move. Pluto, will start moving backward just like Saturn and Jupiter and into its Retrograde cycle.

By this summer there will be 8 planets in Retrograde, and that’s a whole lot of energy moving backward, so our lives really will slow down!

This Pluto Retrograde cycle gives us a chance to look back over the past four months, to look over our past accomplishments, and our failures as well. There’s a whole lot of revising and reassessing going on, and some of you are starting to feel blocked or restricted. The planet Pluto represents things like transformation, power struggles, and evolution. Over the next few months is a good time to think about what you’d like to let go of and release from your life, your mind, and your heart. Then you can do something with what you’ve learned once Pluto and Saturn move forward again from their Retrograde cycles in September.

Is there a bad habit you can’t quit or are you stuck in a job you can’t stand? Maybe you want out of a toxic situation or relationship. Pluto Retrograde shows you what you need to release and let go of.

~Sunday will be especially intense with Saturn, Pluto, and Mars all in the sign of Capricorn. But the whole weekend may be a bit much to handle.

The best way to describe how Pluto Retrograde affects you is to understand your personal relationship with your own power, or the power that resides inside you! This is a time where you can explore your Soul and recognize what you have control over, and especially what you don’t.

Over the next four months you can learn how to not resist or completely let go of what you can’t control, and surrender. Try not to fight it! If you happen to be in a one-sided relationship and the other person is not showing you by the actions they’re taking that they really want to be with you, then it’s time to let it go! And if you’ve been on a certain path for some period of time and trying to accomplish something and it’s not happening, let it go! The Pluto Retrograde cycle between now and September can help you see if you are on the right path or not. Just pay attention to the blocks your up against or if things are falling into place. The Universe will give you clear signs and messages.

The good thing is a few days ago the Sun moved into the sign of Taurus, and you’ll like this energy much better than the past several weeks. It will be a calmer and hopefully peaceful energy.

On Sunday Pluto begins its Retrograde cycle until late September. It’s a time to begin a very personal self-analysis.

On Monday Mars makes a nice connection to Jupiter which can make us feel excited and inspired to do something new.

April 24th the planet Venus will move into the sign of Gemini. The Gemini Sun folks might really enjoy this three-week cycle. While the rest of us can have a really good time.

Venus makes a challenging connection to Wounded Chiron, and our relationships can be painful, so it’s time to have a chat perhaps and begin some deeper healing this week.

Pay attention on April 25-27, when Mars makes a strong conjunction. This will be a strong time for arguments, power struggles, and even fights. Watch for others who like to cause drama and for those who tend to already be unhinged or hot-headed. It’s all about how you choose to react!

Saturn Goes Retrograde – and it’s a pretty big deal!

Saturn Goes Retrograde – and it’s a pretty big deal!
April 17th, 2018

Nowadays, it’s become common knowledge to understand to some degree what Mercury in Retrograde is all about, but what you might not know is all the planets go into a Retrograde cycle which is when the planets appear to be moving backward in the sky! And it does cause significant effects both bad and good really, it’s all in how you look at it! So now we are dealing with Saturn moving into its Retrograde Cycle, and this is a very strong powerful energy that we all will have to deal with at one point if we realize it or not!

Starting April 17th the ringed-planet Saturn starts its five-month-long trip in its Retrograde cycle, through Sept 6th! Saturn Retrograde is a transit that occurs just over every twelve months, lasting for nearly 4 and 1/2 months. Saturn Retrograde is not rare and lots of folks are born under one. This is a time of restrictions, blocks, limitations, and some anxiety and fear. But the skills we learn during this Retrograde phase will prove essential to our growth in the long run.

In the coming days, you may feel off, weighed down, and disoriented, as once again our perspective shifts. We are just getting out of Mercury’s Retrograde cycle, so our perspective isn’t even back to normal yet, so this is a strong time for the confusion! But this is how we are affected by Retrograde planets. Often it’s the very beginning and end of these cycles (Shadow Periods) that are the toughest or most challenging time. Just remember Retrogrades are always about perspective, so as these planets appear to be moving backward through the Cosmos, we too can feel like we’re going backward in our lives.

When Saturn is Retrograde it is a good time to revisit our relationships and work on any long-term goals we may have, as this is a time to pay close attention to our responsibilities and duties. It’s a time to restructure the way we manifest our reality and find new ways of thinking or a different attitude about how to remove what is blocking us, or how to get through the obstacles that are in our way.

Saturn is known as the “Lord of Karma,” and while Retrograde it is a time when Karma is sorted out. Therefore, Saturn Retrograde can be a double dose of Karma handed-out. Karma is actually a form of energy that is very real, and like Saturn, it is very closely bound to time.

Over the next week, as Saturn turns completely Retrograde, we may begin to feel the weight of it in certain situations quite heavily especially around our responsibilities. Many of you will actually let go of certain commitments including relationships, jobs, or business deals, which can leave you wondering why you even bothered with them in the first place. We may feel somewhat disconnected and lose our motivation. It might be difficult to make important decisions during this influences run as our energy levels are low.

This is all due to a change in perspective from the Retrogrades. We will learn how to find our footing and regain some sort of balance into next week, as we grow more accustomed to these shifts. Then we can turn Saturn’s Retrograde cycle into an opportunity, which is the most powerful way to see any Retrograde planet! Turn this into a time to go over and review your responsibilities so you can figure out what’s working and what’s not. Take on your responsibilities and face your reality!

It’s important to slow down now and reconnect with what makes you feel useful, like your work, relationships, and duties. This, in fact, is not a good time to add anything to your existing responsibilities as the extra projects will just stress you out even more! We should be cutting back and reducing what we normally take on right now, it’s a time to make things simple folks! Any delays you happen to run in to now are just a kind reminder from the Universe that its time to make adjustments, this is a chance to make edits and corrections that are necessary for your success. This is a major time out!

This influence has us take a look back at what we have already done or taken care of, so it can make you feel like you are moving backward and like you’re not moving forward. Actually, this is happening so you can review or go back over something that normally you wouldn’t have! Everything ruled by Saturn is under the microscope now and it’s a good idea to review these kinds of things, like any rules or regulations you should be following, structures at work or in business, and traditions and foundations. Making changes to our ongoing projects or going over old ones can be successful, however, taking on new projects or responsibilities or commitments is probably not a great idea, it’s a time to simplify and restructure our lives first!

During Saturn’s Retrograde phase we will be dealing with particularly strong issues. Just remember as we take care of our unfinished business, Saturn is teaching us to be more patient and disciplined. Any skills we acquire during the retrograde phase will prove essential in the long-run to our success.

Saturn Retrograde has us take on certain responsibilities that have already been developing and more important in our life, so extra time is needed to take stock and to make sure everything is in order before we can continue. Saturn will present us with challenges and test us to make sure we are ready to take on extra responsibilities. The lessons we learn and that are taught by the Teacher of the Zodiac, Saturn, are often rough but they are valuable, and we are always rewarded by Saturn for our hard work and a job well done!

The negative side to Saturn Retrograde is you may become sad or depressed, and not speak up for yourself, or act overly shy. If these behaviors get out of control during the Saturn Retrograde time, then you’ll be offered a chance to recognize and admit you’ve got a problem. If this goes too far you can end up needed some help so you can come out of your depression or isolation.

This is an excellent time for schooling or training, but we may question it as well. There’s also going to be questions about our life, faith, and belief systems, as some folks will return to a Spiritual Path they started back in their past. We also may need to tweak or edit a project that we plan on publishing or do something related to writing. Whatever you do during Saturn in Retrograde, remember it’s a time to ride life straight and follow the rules, if you can do that you may learn a lot about life.
