The Full Moon or Wolf Moon occurs in Leo on January 28, 2021, at 2:16 PM EST, 1:16 PM CST, 12:16 PM MST, 11:00 PM PST.
The Full Moon in Leo marks the beginning of a new cycle in our life once again.
The Moon is Full when the Sun in Aquarius opposes the Moon in Leo. The Full Moon is a powerful influence that activates our emotions, so it’s helpful to find a balance between the Sun and Moon’s opposition.
During this Full Moon, the Universe is inviting you to work on something specific. Think about what part of your life is on your mind and where there’s tension. Focus on letting something go, even if it’s just a bad feeling or behavior. Let your intuition be your guide and help you solve any problems happening in your life. This Full Moon energy teaches us how to sync our logical thinking with our intuition.
The Full Moon pulls on our emotions, causing nervousness, excitement, anxiety, and exhaustion. Insomnia is also a side effect of the Full Moon for many, and our dreams can be especially strong and vivid. As we focus more on the relationships, we have with other people.
This particular Full Moon wants us to learn how to balance our personal life with our impersonal world. Leo’s proud Full Moon helps us tap into our creativity and gives us a boost of confidence and courage to express ourselves. We can learn that pleasure is a good thing under this energy, as some people find it difficult or feel guilty for enjoying themselves! This is a romantic Full Moon!
However, the Sun in Aquarius teaches how to work with a group and be part of a team. It’s focused on our impersonal connections and acquaintances. While learning about our individuality and independence and why we need to be part of a “team.” Work on opening your mind and being objective in relationships. Find balance in friendships and romantic endeavors.
The bright Full Moon in the night sky symbolically illuminates our emotional issues and brings forth the truth! It is a time of awareness and growth. We can experience sudden epiphanies or A-ha moments. But the visions we have are relatively new and emotional. It can be tough to hold our tongue due to a strong urge to express how we feel. This helps us release what’s no longer working through self-expression. Over the next few weeks, we might understand this Full Moon’s lessons.
The Full Moon and Sun are aligning with giant Jupiter this time around. So we can feel more hopeful and optimistic, and courageous! It’s important to be realistic, with Jupiter and Saturn still in close proximity. Saturn wants us to follow the rules and stick to earthly business. The Moon also squares Mars, which causes impulsive behavior and combative attitudes!
A may not be so easy to hold our feelings in with such a strong urge to express them, which we should be doing in healthy ways. So Zen it out, and try activities like Meditation, Journal-writing, Exercise, or whatever helps you connect to your higher-self. We’re feeling raw emotions right now that aren’t rational, so give yourself some time to process your feelings. It’s important under the Full Moon to raise our energies to a higher vibrational level. If we can sustain a higher vibration within ourselves, then our life will reflect it, and we can manifest our goals, wishes, and desires much easier.
Each month the Full Moon helps us discover certain truths, and this clarity helps us choose what specific wishes we need to manifest. The Full Moon helps us let go and release situations, people, or behaviors that aren’t working or serving us. Endings happen during this time, and in two weeks from now, as the New Moon occurs, we fan plant seed of intention for something new to begin.
Wishing you a safe and happy blessed Full Moon! ~Ruby
The New Moon in Capricorn peaks on January 13, 2021, at 12:01 AM EST.
The New Moon in Capricorn symbolizes new beginnings and a Cosmic new cycle. It comes together when the Sun and Moon align both in the sign of practical Capricorn. New Moon’s are generally more harmonious and put off a easy-going kind of energy. Depending upon what other planets the New Moon is connecting with, and the other Cosmic transits at play.
We can focus on some of the more positive traits of the sign of the mystical Sea-Goat, Capricorn, during this New Moon, as we all have this sign in our Astrology Birth Charts. We can feel more tenacious, resourceful, disciplined, ambitious, wise, prudent, and constant. We should figure out ways to tap into these special qualities within ourselves and in our lives.
It’s a time to focus on what’s practical, steady and look for attainable long-term goals. It’s good to develop our common sense and maturity levels by taking care of our responsibilities. Making preparations for the future through commitments and nurturing our hopes and dreams more realistically can help us succeed.
Under this potent Capricorn energy, we can finally create some order in our world, since it has been so chaotic lately. It’s a good time to make secure plans and to reap the rewards from the new beginnings that come our way. Dream up plans no matter how small or big they may be, so when the Full Moon comes together in a few weeks, we can tap back into this energy.
Capricorn energy teaches all of us the value of accountability and acceptance. We must understand that boundaries and rules are actually what gives us freedom from worry and chaos. If goals are put in place under this energy, we’ll have more time to focus on what really matters and our security.
This lunation is also aligning with powerful Pluto on the day of the New Moon, which intensifies its energies. This New Moon’s influence will be highly concentrated, and we can be much more focused, driven, ambitious, and obsessive.
This phase of the Moon occurs at 23 degrees and 13 mins of Capricorn, affecting those born with personal planets and points at 19 to 27 degrees of the Cardinal signs: Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn most significantly. But this affects all of us in one way or another.
It’s that time again! Under this New Moon energy, we can ask the Universe for our wishes, hopes, and dreams! Write down and then visualize them into existence and take the time to feel what it’s like actually to have them, be it through visualization or meditation. Just don’t get hung up on the details of how you’re reaching your goals. Only focus on having what you truly desire. Keeping it realistic, as we are under all this Capricorn energy, so it’s important to stay focused on what’s truly attainable.
The New Moon is in the sign of Scorpio on November 14th or 15th, depending on your Time Zone, but is felt now and throughout the weekend. With both the Sun and Moon in the sign of Scorpio, it is super strong and potent. And can be a powerful time to work on yourself.
Think about doing some New Moon energy work. Simply, make out a Wish List or write down what you want to start or begin under this New Moon energy! Set Intentions! New Moons always bring New Beginnings, but this particular New Moon is all wrapped up nice and tight in the sign of endings, Scorpio, the sign of the Zodiac that represents resurrection. We may have to fall or fail, or let something end in our lives, only to rebuild ourselves anew! We then can rise like the stories of the Pheonix and create a new better life for ourselves in one way or another.
It is also Eclipse Season, so our Moon work can involve releasing and letting go, perhaps finish or close something in your life. Make wishes and wish-lists, write about whatever you want! Release a situation, person, or what you should let-go, this also can include worn-out old beliefs and behaviors. This New Moon energy is transformational and can be life-changing.
In the weeks ahead, we’ll be working on our self-mastery skills. It’s a good time to discover what parts of our lives feel out of control. We can release our inner demons with things like addiction or debts and free ourselves from emotional burdens. This energy produces an opportunity to get rid of any excess “stuff” we have been holding on to in our lives, be it material or spiritual. We may feel moved to dig much deeper when it comes to life’s mysteries rather than staying content with the status quo. So it’s important to get in touch with what motivates you, and what will enhance your feelings for intimacy, forgiveness, and meaning. We have a deeper need to feel a sense of purpose and depth in our lives and within our souls. We can truly move forward by doing things during this cycle to develop a new idea, project, or relationship.
Look for ways to release any fears of confrontation or emotionally heavy situations. This New Moon energy can help us learn by taking us out of our comfort zone and making us uncomfortable. So even if a situation is tense it can lead us into psychological healing.
This New Moon is harmonizing with Jupiter, Neptune, and Pluto as well. We can quickly discover support and motivation from within to accomplish our goals, as this energy has our back and can help us set goals. It gives us the drive and imagination to make things work.
Still, during the New Moon loving Venus is forming a tense Square to Pluto, the planet of transformation and lord of the underworld. Goddess, Venus also squares off with over the top Jupiter! These influences can cause major disruptions, which can lead us into exploring our true motivations. What makes us tick! With the TRUTH out of the bag, we can understand the deeper meanings of any challenging situation that comes our way.
It’s important to keep ourselves in check when it comes to exaggeration, so we shouldn’t go out of our way to seek approval, love, or more meaning in our lives, or we can blow things way out of proportion. We can overstate, boost, and brag. As we express ourselves and our feelings in a big way. Watch for doing things in excess and stirring up drama just to get attention, as we can give certain situations much more time and energy than their worth. We might think we can get noticed through exaggerating, but this will surely backfire.
These Cosmic transits can also magnify or boost our insecurities, which means we can feel suspicious, jealous, or paranoid. Socially the interactions we have can be intense and can provoke tense feelings with those involved. Any relationship drama that comes up can get in the way of our goals with our lovers or partners. Our financial affairs can also have major highs and lows, big wins, or big losses, so choose wisely!
Warning Possible Triggers: You May Need to Skip this Part if you are Sensitive!
The Covid19 Virus is surging strongly right now, as Astrologically it’s peaking from the long-term Saturn/Pluto and Jupiter/Pluto Conjunctions that have been occurring all year long! Now with somany planets in Scorpio, and Eclipse Seasonunderway things are out of control! The energy of the Zodiac Sign Scorpio and Eclipse Season, both are about Endings! However, it also helps us to rebuild and manifest a new way of handling the Virus.
As we figure out how to get vaccinations out to the masses, we need to be extremely careful! Protect the younger, older, and vulnerable folks! Please take the necessary precautions we’ve been warned about repeatedly to help bring this surge down. And please just wear your mask around other people! The good news is the Cosmic influences that helped bring the Virus in are now finally over! So once we get past Eclipse Season, we will start to see a major shift and even more so into the New Year. As we get through the final dramatic months of 2020, do your best to be extra careful and work together.
Mars the planet that rules over our motivation, physical actions, assertive drive, ambition, passion, war, and sexual drive shifts signs on June 26, 2020, into more fast-paced, impulsive Aries all the way through January 6th, 2021. That is a really long time for Mars to be in one sign. Its extended stay in trailblazing Aries is due to its upcoming Retrograde phase, which starts on Sept. 9th and runs through Nov. 13th.
Mars is exceptionally comfortable in its home sign of Aries, as it’s ruler naturally. Our energy levels are stronger than usual, and we are more spontaneous, forward-looking, and bolder, and courageous under its influence, as it tends to get things moving so we are more active and confident. If we just follow our instincts, we can get things done super fast and precisely.
As Mars shifts into Aries this week, you’ll notice a definite surge in energy, motivation, and initiative. You don’t need anyone else to light that fire under you to get you going when Mars is transiting Aries. Talk about the ultimate self-starter. With this competitive, entrepreneurial energy in the sky, you will definitely want to begin a personal project. In addition to the remarkable energizer battery of Mars in Aries, you will also notice plenty of courage and fighting spirit. You will not back down from anything or anyone! Just remember, neither will others so expect an argument or a fight if there’s a situation you and someone else butt heads over. At least it will be an honest battle, though as Mars in Aries is not going to allow us to hide anything especially, our agendas.
After all, Mars is the planet of war, anger, and challenges, especially in its own sign of Aries the Warrior! So it tends to cause tension, restlessness, and anxiety for some. However, this also can be a very positive influence that gives us lots of energy. But we must be careful not to lose our cool. We have a strong competitive spirit as our goal is to win! But what are you battling for.? What are you winning in the end? Is it worth it? You are going to need to ask yourself these questions, as this influence can help us stay on task and motivated, but it also can cause impulsive behavior that can get people all fired up over much of nothing! Like things haven’t been heated-up enough out there! This energy could really make protests explode even more so, however with the Virus spreading like wildfire again, we are made to stay in once again, so we are going to need ways to get this energy out, so we don’t let it turn into anger.
Mars in Aries gives us a warrior-like attitude, therefore, its influence can spark up debates and discussions where we feel compelled to share our opinions and defend ourselves. Social media has already been exploding due to our current ongoing circumstances, so many of you will be sharing your frustrations, and there will be more arguing, of course. But remember, ask yourself if it’s worth it or not first.
When it comes to your sex life, expect a boost in libido. With Mars in Aries, we want immediate gratification and will do whatever it takes to get our needs met. There’s so much dynamic energy around this placement that you may wonder if there’s anything to worry about. Well, as with any planetary alignment, there’s a positive expression and a not so positive one. When Mars in Aries shines its light, we become fearless warriors or innovative pioneers. When it’s operating in the shadow, however, we can be rash, impatient, and selfish.
The darker side of Mars being in the sign of Aries is that we can sometimes be impatient, arrogant, impulsive, and self-centered! But if we can remember to take time out’s and not let our tempers get lit up so fast, as we can also be more authentic, enthusiastic, and straightforward. But we can also be quite narcissistic and not think of others as much, so don’t expect folks to be so worried about your “feelings”, as this is a time when we think ahead, and we are not as worried about the past. This can be challenging with the Sun and mental Mercury both in the sign of Cancer through the end of July! The sign of Cancer is all about being sensitive and worrying about other folk’s feelings, so the polar opposite of Aries and Mars, both. So we can feel pushed and pulled or even just reminded that we should care, but at the same time, we may not be feeling it!
If we pay attention and harness this Mars in Aries energy, we can be so productive and get so much done. Just remember people tend to take impulsive actions during this time, so often there are mistakes, mishaps, and accidents. It may take a week or so to get used to this energy, so we need to be a little extra careful, and take some extra precautions to stay safe, as some people are going to get more easily frustrated and aggressive under its influence. If we can take on a strategic kind of attitude, we can plan ahead and get things done in ways we never thought of, we have to be mindful and remember to not react without thinking things through first, which is always the most difficult challenge with Mars in Aries. Under the tense and frustrating energy we have already been dealing with due to COVID and the rioting, we must work extra hard to keep our cool and make sure that things remain calm, otherwise, it could be a bigger mess than we are already in.
Here we go again! Those two dreaded words are once again upon us, as “Mercury Retrograde” starts on June 18th and runs through July 12th!
Mercury Retrograde is usually quite annoying to most people as it causes communication and technology breakdowns, and it can bring delays with travel and shipments. However, this isn’t one of my normal anti-Mercury Retrograde write-ups, as this particular backward cycle of Mercury can likely be somewhat of a good influence as well. I know it’s an interesting turn of events! But rather than just being mischievous the trickster planet, Mercury might bring in some luck for some folks, as it makes a strong connection to the star, Sirius! So even as annoying as Mercury Retrograde can be at least this time around it can bring some success and wealth as well.
This Mercury in Retrograde is in the sign of Cancer, (June 21st-July 22nd) so it does tend to affect those with Cancer astrological placements in their personal “Natal Astrology Charts” a bit more strong, but it runs much deeper than that and affects all of us no matter what Signs we have.
Now there will also be challenges with this Mercury in Retrograde cycle as it’s aspecting the Eclipse on June 21st. The first part of the actual Retrograde cycle starts on the 18th can be bumpy folks, with travel issues that include driving or flying especially. There will be delays and cancellations of all kinds in all situations. And computer and online problems that affect both personal and business can be a really big issue this go around.
Three Phases of Mercury’s Retrograde cycle:
June 2 to 18 – Pre-Shadow period before Mercury goes Retrograde, as it slows down
During this Shadow phase, you get a sample of what part of your life this particular Mercury Retrograde will affect
June 18 to July 12 – Is the Actual Retrograde Phase
During the actual Retrograde phase, we deal mainly with miscommunications and annoying technical glitches, this time I think we’ll see a whole lot of folks get visited from both friends and lovers from their past, as Cancer’s ruling planet is the Moon and this brings up our past experiences to review and helps us tap into our unconscious mind.
July 12 to 26 – The after Shadow phase that lasts until Mercury leaves Retrograde.
The after Shadow period is when things get wonky again at first, as we slowly get back to normal, at least we start to feel like we are mentally moving forward again and eventually back to some kind of normalcy.
There are certain things we should be doing during a Mercury Retrogrades cycle, like starting something over or finishing up projects we’ve already started. Remember Mercury represents the mind and how we perceive information, so when in Retrograde it is a time to go back over things and reassess our lives. We should revise plans and personal goals perhaps, revisit anything that needs to be worked on, reconnect with loved ones, and business contacts, and redo just about anything if it helps, and usually, it does during this time. Refresh your life by doing things over again, and ask lots of questions. Otherwise, Mercury can be one giant headache for ya, especially if you try to push forward with brand-new plans, it just doesn’t usually work out so well.
One of the best things you can do during any Mercury Retrograde cycle is to write things down, take notes, and do anything you can to remember, taking these simple actions can make this whole Mercury in Retrograde experience so much easier to get through and navigate. These little mistakes and going back and doing things over can lead to it being a time of growth and personal development.
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 backward 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.
Here’s a basic list of Do’s and Don’t that can help you get through this rather confusing time. Make sure to share this Blog with others so they can be enlightened and understand all about Mercury Retrograde time.
What Not To Do duringMercury 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 personally. Our communication is foggy and cloudy.
What To Do duringMercury 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.
– Re-visit anything that needs fixing or even if you have a question.
– Re-connect with folks that matter if you’ve had issues or not.
– Backup Computers and data that needs saved, it’s best to do this during the Shadow Phases.
– Re-organize your daily routines.
– Reflect and practice spiritual and energy work.
– Release what’s been holding you back or blocking you, let go of what no longer is working in your life, especially in your intimate relationships.
With Mercury in Retrograde cycles, we just have to be prepared is all, and it’s important to remember during this particular Mercury in Rx phase to do whatever it takes to REMEMBER things. These cycles are not meant to be as aggravating as they seem to be. In a perfect world, if we were to just take some time off from our everyday routines, (like we have been forced to do with COVID going around) it would be a much easier time to navigate. However, if you choose to go against this cycle’s natural flow you will probably get stressed out by something. It is a time to pause and reflect, as this helps us gain new perspectives and maybe realize something we had missed before. This cycle gives us the opportunity to fix things and get them right or the way we want them. Get prepared and try to do something to keep your mind busy during this Mercury in Retrograde cycle, it can help you get through it must more quickly.
Have a safe and easy going Mercury in Retro time folks, ~Ruby
Mental Mercury enters the sign of Taurus today, it stays there through May 11th.
This energy tends to slow our minds way down, especially with it also being Taurus Season (the Sun in Taurus.) So things aren’t going to be moving as quickly as they have been, and we can feel somewhat stuck. Especially with the ongoing virus situation.
We tend to be more down to earth, stable, and grounded with Mercury in Taurus, and our common sense is stronger, but our fantasies may be put on hold for the time being. We can come off more deliberate, and sometimes harsh under this influence, but it can be easier to communicate our emotions.
We will stick to what’s worked for us in the past, and who’s been tried and true, as our tribe means everything during this time. And we can be stubborn about using new solutions to solve problems, so trying new things isn’t so easy. Our focus is stronger as we can pay attention to one thing at a time, which can help make life more simple in these complicated times.
Be mindful of being overly strict or conservative. Don’t get too stubborn with your thoughts and opinions, and allow others to share how they are feeling during this cycle.
The Sun shifts into the sign of Aries on March 19, 2020 and it’s the official first day of Spring as the “Spring Equinox” (Vernal Equinox) occurs, which is also the first day of the Astrological New Year!
Aries Season The Sun will be in the sign of Aries from March 19, 2020 through April 19, 2020 And Aries Season begins! But did you know this affects each and every one of us, no matter your Sun Sign. With the Sun moving into this fiery but also empowering energy, we are awakened and there can be some great things are on the horizon. This is a time of new beginnings, as the light of the Sun slowly takes over the dark. We are more determined and motivated under the Sun in Aries cycle, but we should be careful and not impulsive or hasty.
Our personal goals become very important, and there’s a strong urge to move forward and get things done under this new Zodiac cycle. We are motivated to initiate something by taking the lead and making our own path. We notice our gut instincts more under this influence, so it’s good time to listen to them and pay attention! We are all going to be moving at a much faster pace now, and for some folks, this might be a lot faster than what they’re used to.
Spring Equinox Spring is the season of growth and rejuvenation, as this Astrological New Year is urging you to explore new directions. During the Spring Equinox the energies can be extremely potent. This is the beginning of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere and the energetic turning point from one season to the next. This is when the sunshine finally starts to grow through the Summer Solstice. We get to live more outwardly again, as we crawl back out to the land of the living, and get to spend more time outdoors once again and winter slowly fades away.
During this time of year many people around the world celebrate the Spring Equinox with all kinds of interesting old traditions and festivities to honor the Goddess of Renewal or Spring. Along with the Earth’s ability to regenerate itself once again, this season is obviously very important for many different reasons. It’s a time of awakenings, beginnings, and positive energy chasing the dark of night away. So we need this more than ever!
Ask for Changes As the seasons change, a gateway opens where we experience the light and dark. This makes for a great time to notice just what energies you want to draw to you. And it’s a time to think about what you want to manifest in your life next. Of course we all want to be healthy and have lots of money, but this is a time when we should get more detailed when making our “Intentions” List. So we can start setting powerful intentions or making out Wish Lists, and so some healing energy work.
So get comfortable and take a breathe, and ask the Universe or whatever it is you believe in to bring in what you need and choose. And get a little detailed about it what you want to experience. Ask them to put you on the path towards what will make you happy! Think about what kind of things you want to see happen next. What do you need to move forward and obtain your goals? Write it all down and make it perfectly clear to the Universe what it is your asking for!
Lots of people celebrate this season with religious or spiritual celebrations. But we must not forget the history, and that all of these festivities stem from the fact, that the Spring Equinox is first and foremost a major “Astrological Event.” This event is actually more about about the Sun’s light expanding, and it’s shift into the sign of Aries, the first Zodiac sign of the Astrological Calendar. This light represents the promise of a greater more warm life-changing energy coming into our lives. And Easter is just one of those celebrations that actually began many Moon’s ago, as Eggs and Bunnies originally were symbols of fertility and sex, and represented new life and new beginnings. Unfortunately, like most holidays it has been commercialized and even moved to a date on the calender that doesn’t match up with its origins and the Spring Equinox.
If you’ve been struggling through the Winter months, then consider this event to be just like a calendar New Year! In fact, it’s much stronger in energy because it is a Equinox. Be inspired that this is a new cycle and a renewed energy, and remember sometimes you have to believe that something can and will change to see it through.
May the Sun’s warmth and Spring’s New Energy bring about new beginnings for you that lead to your deepest dreams and desires coming true during this difficult time.
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
We are in “Eclipse Season”, and a Lunar Eclipse occurs on January 10th, 2020.
Eclipses of the Sun and the Moon tend to shake things up and bring in powerful changes. Sometimes the changes that take place during an Eclipse may not be what you’d like or expect, but before you make any decisions or judgments wait for things to settle down first and after the Lunar Eclipse occurs and see how you feel.
Many of you are trying to get too much done right now, and without much time, money, or energy. And you’ve depleted your energy and it’s low, so don’t overdo anything as we enter into “Eclipse Season.” There might be something that comes up during the Eclipses that you will have to pay extra close attention too, so you’ll need the extra time. So again I repeat don’t overdo anything right now! And during this particular Eclipse Season lots of folks are getting sick or falling ill. Keep your immune system strong.
Everyone feels the Eclipses on some level, if they understand it or not. For some folks, it may not affect them directly but more indirectly, where you have to help the other people in your life because they’re having a hard time, so you could end up spending this “Eclipse Season” lending a helping hand. And then the rest of us could have issues or challenges we have to work through, and hopefully, the favor is returned and we get a little help from our friends when we are down.
This Lunar Eclipse coming together in January can reveal something that’s been hidden or kept secret. It can be a personal issue that you’ve been trying to hide, but also global issues have already started to come out. If for whatever reason you’re trying to hide something, or keep secrets be careful because Full Moon’s are truth-telling time and a Lunar Eclipse just amplifies that energy even more, so basically whatever is being hidden could come out this week! As these Eclipses come together the Universe sends out very subtle or sometimes strong messages, and these messages can be a reality check of some kind. So be on the lookout in the next week or so for signs, symbols, and dreams about what is coming to light.
Want to know the best way to handle “Eclipse Season”, here are some helpful hints.
*Get some Rest, The body takes a lot of energy on during an Eclipse, it transforms us on a deep cellular level which means our DNA moves around, and as we begin to download information from the Eclipses (mostly unconscious) this energy can be exhausting for all of us.
*Don’t allow yourself to get involved in others drama, mind your business. The lunar activity can make folks feel pretty crazy anyway, so Eclipses really can cause some of us to get ramped up and become frustrated, and anxiety-ridden. Then, in turn, you can take out your fears on everyone else. Stay away from the negativity period! We absorb the energies we continue to be around, good, bad, or indifferent.
*Nurture yourself during Eclipse Season. This is about taking care of your total well-being. You need to stay as balanced as possible because Eclipses can make us feel like we’re in an energetic rat race. With energy pushing and pulling on us.
*Meditate daily and get connected to your Spirit, Mind, and Body.. *Eat balanced meals and don’t grab junk in a hurry. Go organic and drink lots of extra water right now.
*Journal daily, it’s therapy, seriously just try it! Write about how your feeling and what you desire in life. This can also help you keep up with any signs or messages you might be seeing, and it may help you build a more personal relationship with the Universe.
*Exercise and burn off some steam, this will help you keep all that nervous energy under control, and it can help you stay balanced.
*Connect to Nature – get outdoors and take a walk daily, or perhaps go to the park, just do something that’s physically active.
*Play music and lift your mood, or something relaxing. Music is so good for the Soul. Make sure and stay away from sad or angry music or movies. The point is to raise your vibration and not bring it down.
*Wear Gem Stones of any kind that make you feel good, they will raise your vibration and can aid you. Stones tend to help us feel relaxed and calmer and keep you grounded. Learn more about the healing qualities of the Stones if you don’t know.
*Get away from all the negative media, because during Eclipse Season it’s always just full of more sad and tragic events happening in the world. Things happen during Eclipses, and as I said it shakes us up. While there can be some great stuff going on in the world as well, the news and social media seldom report it. We can get flooded with lower vibrational negative news and information. Eclipse Season has already begun, so unplug! Block negative media and other drama on Facebook and surround yourself with positive open-minded people, groups, and pages.
Remember Eclipses can be a good thing too, they can deliver messages from the Cosmos that we need to hear or see. Thisall can be extremely revealing, so we can make decisions that make our lives better in some way.
“Eclipse Season” started in December of 2019, with the Solar Eclipse in Capricorn. Now here in a just a short time the Lunar Eclipse occurs on January 10 in Cancer.

On December 28th Mercury enters the sign of Capricorn and stays there through January 16th.
Mercury, the planet of communication, commerce, and travel has been in the sign of Sagittarius for the last three weeks at its detriment. The bottom line is this means while Mercury is in Sagittarius, it does not do so well. As we had less control of our mouths and impulses. This was a time of travel, exploration, and learning. But even if we didn’t get to actually go anywhere, we probably had some amazing adventures in our minds. It was a good time for meeting new people, so hopefully there were fresh new ideas gained and perspectives changed. But now a shift occurs and it’s time to make new plans and set new goals, and manifest what we want next in our life. Our goals should reflect who we are and want to become.
With Mercury in Capricorn, we tend to get more calm and quiet, and are less over the top under this energy. It’s much easier to focus and concentrate on the tasks on hand that we need to take care of. This simply is a much better position for the messenger planet, so we can get more serious about taking care of business once again.
With the planet that rules over our thinking in more systematic Capricorn, we are more focused. Our attitude tends to be more sobering and practical. It’s much easier to concentrate on what needs to get done. Our conversations are more reality-based, usually about business or practical matters. We communicate more logically, as we can be more organized and orderly. Being focused on the here and now can help us plan ahead. Communications tend to be a matter of fact, no-nonsense, and precise. But it’s important to not allow our thoughts to become too cold or rigid, or we can come across as cut off and even harsh during this cycle, when really we are just more focused on business and goals.
There’s actually a whole lot of Capricorn energy going around right now, with it being “Capricorn Season”, and there are four other planets also in the sign represented by the Sea-Goat. This energy encourages us to take life and ourselves more seriously, so it doesn’t support fantasies do much or daydreams about the future. It wants us to just get out and actually do something.
We should be as productive as possible during these cycles! It’s a good time to make out plans and get organized by writing things down, especially your goals. And talk about what you want to do with the people involved. Staying productive makes us happy and puts our minds at ease.
The sign of Capricorn is not about being overly emotional, as it has work to do. It’s about the material things here on the planet and what we value in the physical world. Our thinking tends to be more logical and practical. It may not be the best time to share feelings or for being vulnerable, as we are more concerned and focused on getting what we want and seeing actual results materialize.
Under this energy, we tend to value honesty, integrity, and loyalty. So we should use this time to identify the best means to get a job done. Under this Capricorn influence, we can manage our resources quite well and make mostly practical purchases with our hard-earned cash or money.
It is important to take care of ourselves, and make sure we are taking some time to get away, relax and have some fun from time to time. Under all this Capricorn energy people tend to be more hard on themselves, so we can beuptight. It’s ok to rest and not be constantly doing something. Take a break!
Have a productive and successful time with Mercury in Capricorn.
The Winter Solstice occurs on December 21st, 2019 in the late evening time in the United States when the Sun leaves the sign of Sagittarius and enters the sign of Capricorn, where it remains through Jan 20, 2020.
This also officially starts “Capricorn Season.” Happy Birthday to all my Capricorn folks!
This year’s Winter Solstice is soon followed by a Solar Eclipse on December 26th. This Eclipse can actually be quite interesting as it is very close proximity to lucky Jupiter! And giant Jupiter and surprising Uranus make a fabulous trine connection, this brings up all sorts of interesting things like inventions and big grand ideas as it opens new paths. Innovation is in the air, so we can go out on new exciting adventures. I hope you all get to celebrate this magical season full of wonder and excitement.
All of these Cosmic connections make for some pretty amazing energies to be honest! These planetary combinations bring in an extra dose of love, happiness, and good fortune for all of us to share. Which is perfect timing for the Holidays! But there also might be some unexpected twists and turns, so just hang on for the ride.
The Sun in Capricorn is a time to get motivated and take care of business. We are being reminded by the Cosmos to respect the physical world and the laws of nature under this influence. There can be a deeper appreciation for structure and order. Our motivation comes from a need to be responsible, as our ambitions and respect for law and order our strong. And clear boundaries are drawn out and simple rules are followed, which helps us feel more in control of ourselves and our lives. Simple everyday tasks and responsibilities are easily completed and taken more seriously.
During this cycle, we can start working on our long-term goals, as we can manifest some stability for our future. Under the Sun in Capricorn, we can feel quite satisfied if we get tasks and work completed because this gives us a stronger sense of accomplishment As we look for tangible results, and start to realize what will last and what won’t. We’re much more comfortable working in an already established situation, where we know our boundaries during Capricorn Season.
Weekend Update Dec 21 & 22
The Moon shifts into the sign of Scorpio for a few days which creates a more passionate, intense energy. This can help us get motivated to gr our last-minute holiday preparations together. However, if we fall into our emotions for whatever reason we can get lost in them and become obsessed with a need to analyze ourselves and others. This is a time that the truth tends to come out, so think about what you’re saying before you speak!
This is an amazing opportunity to open up to healing yourself and others through your spiritual heart. (That place within yourself that feels love.)
Venus the planet of love aligns with wounded healer/teacher Chiron. There may be challenges or struggles as values and tastes clash, or we can feel torn between wanting closeness and needing our freedom. We can get lost quickly, because we can be quite impulsive if we feel attracted to someone. There’s a deeper pull towards buying material things, (Which is not so good in this day and age with the Holidays coming up! ) Watch your wallets folks, you can seriously go overboard. Some of you will be able to really focus on your relationships and healing. But we can feel quite moody and our emotions can be up and down, this can lead to new commitments.
Over the weekend things can get a bit intense when the planet of love, Venus squares the planet of change and rebellion, Uranus. This can cause unexpected upsets and arguments especially in our close personal relationships with friends and family. So watch yourself at any family gatherings over the weekend, things can get testy. If you know there will be someone you will see that you don’t like then you may want to skip the event. But if you think it will be cool, then just stay aware and if any drama starts up to be ready to get out of there if need be.
Now the good news is the planet Mars which motivates us is in a rather lucky aspect, this can give us a major boost of energy to get things done. This influence can have us feeling strong and vital, and it can motivate us to finish whatever we start. It can actually be a successful day if you can keep things calm.
Here’s to a magical Winter Season, may you be healthy and abundant. Be Blessed ~Ruby

December Astro Forecast
December 2 – Jupiter enters Capricorn Jupiter joins up with the heavy-hitting planets Saturn and Pluto in ambitious Capricorn. It’s time to pay attention to the areas of your life that you want to build a solid foundation on, so focus on what you want to achieve in the coming New Year. You can meet people who help you get ahead in one way or another. Just remember any hard work you do now will be rewarded. Even though we can receive some much needed help, with so many planets in the sign of Capricorn, there can be challenges as well. Especially, when those who are of authority or who are in charge band together with their combined powers. To rise above these tests and challenges, and meet your goals, you will need to stay focused and concentrate. Keep things practical, and be savvy and strategic, this is not the time to be impulsive or to just wing it!
December 3 – Venus sextiles Mars Venus the Goddess of Love and relationships is also in the sign of, you guessed it, Capricorn. Her Cosmic Lover Mars, the planet of aggression, action, and desire is actually in Scorpio right now, and together these two make a powerful couple. This can be a beneficial influence that helps you meet new people romantically. It can help those of you who are already involved in a committed relationship to strengthen the bonds you have already built.
December 8 – Sun squares Neptune Neptune is the planet that rules over your dreams, fantasies, imagination, and spirituality. With the Sun shining its energy on Neptune, things can feel rather confusing and some of you may feel down and out. But this can be an amazing time to escape your busy life, and get rid of all the distractions, and unplug, or just relax. Using your mind and logic won’t help you find the answers, instead, try a little creativity and some daydreaming perhaps. Don’t worry, because even if you don’t know where you are going or exactly what you want. All of us need some downtime to replenish our energies, so find a place of peace and relaxation, and take a moment to breathe and simply be. The rest of the world will just have to wait.
December 9 – Mercury enters Sagittarius Mercury is the planet of communication and expression. When it shifts into the more optimistic sign of Sagittarius are heads fill up with new ideas and we can enjoy fun conversations that may just help us learn better about how to reach our goals. Keep things practical and stay grounded, but express your enthusiasm and you might just succeed. Sagittarius energy demands truth, so all of us will appreciate a good honest discussion at this time. Just be careful not to overdo it, and share your whole life story, as giving to much of your business away can cause problems. This energy can have us telling way to much truth, and then we have to apologize for it later. If you can remember to use tact you won’t feel regretful later.
December 11 – Venus conjuncts Saturn Saturn is about taking responsibility as it holds us accountable. So when Venus connects to stern Saturn there can be challenges in your relationships. But you also can gain clarity about the people in your life, this can help you understand better what you want and don’t want.
December 12 – Full Moon in Gemini This Full Moon is handing out information and brings news that can make you doubt your current plans. This week is going to be moving very fast, and you might feel stressed out and overwhelmed! But it can also help open your eyes and see the truth about situations that you need to be done with. This is anxious energy, even more so than normal, so some folks can be extremely emotional and high strung, so whatever they are communicating can be illogical. Make no important decisions during this time! Take things nice and slow, and review all the info you have gathered. Once this Full Moon has passed you will be able to see the whole picture, and then you will know what you should do next.
December 13 – Venus conjuncts Pluto Venus rules over our relationships and Pluto is about the power and control we have. Conjunctions are often about new beginnings. But this influence can be about our projects, goals, or other people. You can feel powerful during this time, and your energy can run high. If you choose to let go of what’s broken or not working in your relationships, then it might just transform and come back together into something new and stronger. But this is strong powerful energy to grab ahold of, if you embrace it you may just be able to achieve your goals. Keep your heart open to the ones who love you back.
December 15 – Jupiter trines Uranus Jupiter is about expanding one’s horizons, it wants to help you improve your life. When it shifts into the sign of Capricorn our goals become our main focus. This energy can help you rebuild something in your life, into something different or even new. The world opens up to new possibilities, so it’s a good year to make long-term improvements. Keep your options open and be ready as opportunities show up. Other people are a valuable resource during this time, as they can help you at least begin your new journey.
December 19 – Mars sextiles Saturn The action planet Mars is in powerful Scorpio. As it makes this connection to stabilizing Saturn in ambitious Capricorn, all our hard work can finally pay off, as help comes from those of authority or positions of power. This helps us put the finishing touches on any projects or plans we have been working on for a while now. If you share your ideas and visions for your future plans and goals, you will probably get the help you need to realize them.
December 20 – Venus enters Aquarius Venus the planet of Love herself, enters the more emotionally detached sign of Aquarius. This is a very interesting influence because you can actually meet someone during this time to love that shares the same values and moral codes as you, but you also need your partner to be your friend under this energy. Since we tend to be more social during this time, it is easier to meet people at events (hello Holidays) as long as you participate in activities you enjoy. If you are already committed, this is a good time to work on strengthening the friendship you have with your nearest and dearest.
December 21 – Sun enters Capricorn The Sun enters the more practical sign of Capricorn and this marks the beginning of the Winter Solstice. This is a magical time, (all the Solstices are) but it’s best to take this time to get quiet and reflect on this past year, think about what you are grateful for. Now is the time of the year when we tend to hide out, the winter months are about staying out of the cold. But with so many other planets in the sign of Capricorn, we should be planning and preparing for 2020. Think about your dreams, goals, and plans and what you would like to accomplish. This is a fiercely ambitious influence that can help you get ahead if you work with its energies in the right way
December 24 – Sun trines Uranus When the radiant Sun shines on the divine messenger, Uranus, we can have way more energy and courage to do what we want, how we want! All you are required to do is go after your goals and take advantage of this influence. Look to your soul tribes and those who are of support. Make changes, and be open to adjustments and change up your plans if need be, make them stronger and better, as there are people around during this time that are willing to assist you.
December 26 – Solar Eclipse in Capricorn A powerful Solar Eclipse occurs on this day in the sign of ambitious Capricorn, as this influence can help you reconnect to the world around you. For most of us, the outer world is about our careers, for others, it is school or volunteer work that takes up most of your interactions. The Solar Eclipse occurs at the same time as the New Moon, this means it is an especially strong time for drama but it’s also a new beginning. This New Moon energy is all about achieving your goals, by taking step by step plans to reach them. It’s a good time to decide what you are going to take responsibility for and what you don’t. This is a time to take actions that help you make your life more secure, by accomplishing what is practical. Over the next few weeks while the light of the Moon slowly increases from this New Moon to a Full Moon, stay focused and put your time and energy into something you really want to see grow and build up to be strong, or make it about something that is really important to you. Staying consistent and focusing on the same goals over this two week period can bring amazing results, or at the very least put you on the right path towards achieving your goals. Everyone’s journey is different.
December 27 – Sun conjuncts Jupiter Every year, the Sun shines its light on optimistic Jupiter. This year, of course, it’s meeting up with the sign of practicality and security, Capricorn. Jupiter is all about its generosity as it expands the energy of the sign it is in, and it brings along helpers, guides, angels and whatever you can think of to help us build upon these Capricorn energies. This is a great time to work once again on your plans for your future, to reach goals that have to do with the long-term. This energy wants you to get real and stick to a plan that is in the here and now.
December 28: Mercury enters Capricorn When the planet of Communication enters the sign of practical Capricorn, we can learn what is working and what isn’t. Stay focused on your goals, but also get out and do some networking, especially with folks who have already done or accomplished what you hope to achieve. You can gain some valuable advice and they can lead you to meet the right people who can help you. All your hard work will be rewarded soon, so stay focused, and don’t give up.
