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.
The Cosmos is shifting once again and there’s a lot of changes on the horizon, as we wrap up November and slide into December. These energies can certainly be interesting, but can actually help us to get grounded as we build towards making our lives more stable.
The Goddess of Love, Venus just moved into more stabilizing Capricorn. Honesty is more important because we value integrity during this time. But we can appear cold or cut off with our feelings, simply because we’re more focused on getting things in place, so we tend to follow the rules or do what’s right under this influence.
Expansive Jupiter is in the last or 29th degree of Sagittarius until, starting Monday, December 2nd, Jupiter shifts into more restricted Capricorn, which starts what’s called a “Stellium” in Astrology, and it’s in the sign of Capricorn this time around which will affect us for the next six weeks! A Stellium is when three or more planets are in the same sign at the same time. This energy will saturate us in all things Capricorn, so over this next month, we can be more focused and serious about meeting our goals. Business matters and financial security will be of the utmost importance. But it’s a great time to get organized, and to look for ways to make your work, relationships, and life more stable. It’s a time to build solid foundations that last for years to come.
Wherever this Stellium in Capricorn falls in your own personal “Astrology Birth Chart” is where you’ll see its energies most evident, and you’ll feel a stronger need to give that part of your life more attention for the next few months. The Earth Signs – Capricorn, Virgo, and Taurus could see some benefits during this time, as it can be easier for them to handle this familiar energy. But we all can use it to our advantage if we work steadily and stick to taking care of our responsibilities for the next few months. No slacking off or taking foolish risks.
There will be a lot of Capricorn influence in place during December and January. And this will grow stronger with Jupiter joining the Stellium on Dec 2nd. Asteroid Ceres is already in Capricorn, and so are the South Node Points of Destiny, and Saturn and Pluto. On Dec 21st the Solstice will occur and the Sun shifts into the sign of Capricorn, and then Mercury as well on December 28th. That’s a whole lot of Capricorn energy folks, affecting many different parts of our Astrology Charts and our lives.
We should look to when the Moon is in Capricorn, as it makes this influence even stronger. We tend to take the high road under its influence and can be more reliable. The Moon is in Capricorn on November 29, and then on December 25-27, and on January 21-23. And there’s a strong Eclipse in the sign of Capricorn on December 26th as well.
So on New Year’s Day, the Sun, Mercury, Jupiter, the South Node, Ceres, Saturn, and Pluto will all be in this Earth-Ruled “Stellium”, ringing in the New Year! Capricorn energy is abundant this New Year, so it might not be the most exciting of celebrations, as Capricorn energy is way more serious and we might just be more focused on taking care of business! But 2020, it will be a year to build some sort of long last foundation for yourself, it’s a time to get our lives structured and organized, and once things are in place we can party like it’s 1999 later.
When so many planets in one sign, something amazing can happen! Pay attention to the shifts and watch for some sort of change over the next few months.
Ready for a change! Jupiter in Capricorn
On December 2nd, giant Jupiter the planet of luck, personal growth, and expansion shifts into the sign of Capricorn. This brings in a whole new set of benefits and a shift in luck to pass around until December 19, 2020! All the Earth signs can benefit from this influence, but all the Capricorns, Taurus, and Virgo folks might just experience something wonderful during this time. But we all can see Jupiter’s rewards in one way or another. Jupiter is going to be in the last part of the sign of Capricorn for an extended amount of time, which means if you were born from January 10th to the 20th, you could see some extra special rewards.
It’s a time to get organized and get a plan together, make sure you find ways to make them for the long term, this is a solid time to build foundations that will last folks! But it also helps us learn how to work around restrictions and limitations. Make sure you’ve got backup plans as well. What will you be doing during this time?
Being methodical with your plans is important, because Jupiter is also meeting up with Pluto, which means drama, and power struggles. And Jupiter then meets with stern Saturn (Capricorn’s ruling planet), this means there can be conflicts and limitations to deal with even when you have a run of good luck! But keep working to meet your goals and don’t give up.
It’s important that whatever you choose to work on for 2020, that you get it going and ready by April, then you really have a chance to see your dreams materialize, and turn into successes.
December 10-14 This can be an especially lucky time for many of you, with amazing financial growth and lucky streaks around your career and professional life. Especially if you were born under the signs of Scorpio, Taurus, Virgo, or Pisces, there can some extra gifts for you this Holiday Season to look forward too. But remember this can happen for any of us.
All these new Cosmic influences starting on Dec 2nd can bring something successful into any of your lives. But as the saying goes “sometimes you have to give fate a hand”, and take some actions to find this good fortune. Everyone can find luck in different ways during this time, as this energy will affect all of us a little bit differently. And not everyone will be as lucky.
If you’d like to know about what part of your life to be focusing on and where you can find this lucky energy, then you should get a December Astrology Report. I will give you a whole bunch of information about December’s Cosmic energy and even some info for 2020, based on your personal “Astrology Birth Chart.” I will do all the research for you and give you the best times to make moves and changes, so hopefully, you’ll be able to benefit in some way.

Hope this time brings you abundance and good fortune, ~Ruby
Early in the morning Tuesday, Nov. 26th the New Moon comes together in adventurous Sagittarius, and we’re looking for something different, bigger, truthful, and honest. This is just one of those New Moons that are rare, the best one of 2019 in fact! The Sun and Moon are both in the more hopeful, optimistic sign of Sagittarius which makes this an extra powerful energy.
This New Moon is a fabulous one, full of great feeling vibes, as a rather interesting conjunction between lovely Venus and lucky Jupiter is also underway, so in fact, this New Moon can reactivate this amazing energy, and both mental Mercury and mystical Neptune just freshly out of their Retrograde cycles make a connection as well. This energy is fabulous for manifesting your hopes, dreams, and desires.
It’s a great time for Setting Intentions, (working with the energy of the Cosmos to ask for your dreams and desires, it’s a time for meditation, journal-keeping, visualization, and energy work.)
It’s also a good time to start new projects, especially if it involves travel or exploring new territory. However, Mercury is just coming out of Retrograde so things can still be a little bit confusing. It’s important to remember if you change your thoughts you literally change your reality, and the world around you, as we manifest from the inside out. This Sagittarian energy helps us take a look around and see things differently, and gain a fresh new perspective.
Now the darker side of this New Moon energy is that aggressive Mars is opposing rebellious Uranus at the same time. This can bring chaotic energy into the mix! There also can be more irritation, hostility, or unexpected changes. Anger can boil over and turn into rash actions, as silly temper tantrums can occur. You can feel more impulsive and have a total disregard for following the rules. You may even feel like it’s more important to break the rules just to be free from your responsibilities and obligations.
This energy is about taking action and moving forward, in our minds and by using our bodies. Physical movement can help us gain a new perspective on life, it helps bring clarity. Which many of us are needing this new energy to help us see clearly again, since we are just coming from out of the influences of both the Mercury and Neptune Retrograde cycles. This energy tends to lead us down new and different paths in life, and into new directions. Be mindful and ask the Universe for what you want, to ensure your heading down the right path towards your wishes and desires. Let this energy guide you.
The New Moon in Sagittarius helps us learn, grow, and expand our knowledge. This influence wants to show us how to have space within our own hearts that still respects old traditional ways of doing things. But it’s just as equally as important to not repeat history and struggle. So basically if something didn’t work out for you before in the past then it’s time to take a hint and try something new. It’s also important during this New Moon to work and practice showing yourself some compassion. Seriously, if you are reading this give yourself a BREAK!
Here are some good questions to think about and to be asking if you are going to “Set Intentions” with this New Moon.
Why are you here in this life now?
Where are you going in life?
What beliefs do you hold on to?
Which beliefs don’t work for you anymore?
What do you believe in now, and what do you know to be true?
What should you trust in, and where should you take a leap of faith at?
This New Moon holds the best energy to “Set Intentions” under, as its extremely powerful with the Sun and Moon both being in expansive Sagittarius! A New Moon can work powerful manifestation magic because the Moon is farthest from the Earth, and this opens up our imagination being farther away from this material plane of existence we live in. Anything you are thinking during this time is like planting seeds in a garden, just see your thoughts as the seeds, because once they are thought at the time of the New Moon they will grow, so be mindful of what you are thinking about during this New Moon time, and remember be careful for what you wish for as sometimes we need to really think before we ask.
You can start Setting Intentions at any time right now as we are under some amazingly lucky and life-changing energies.
Do you wanna know if the Sun moving into the sign of Sagittarius is going to help you feel better?
Scorpio season of 2019 has been a rough one folks, it has been hard living life in such a deep emotional state with the Sun, Mercury, and Venus all in the sign of mysterious Scorpio. We’ve been observers and researchers, and have secretly been dealing with the shadows in our innermost thoughts and minds. As we have explored our shadow self over these last six weeks and have discovered many truths, now is the time to ask yourself what you’ve learned. This process has not been easy but if you can make some changes to your life or yourself than it was totally worth it!
The Mercury in Retrograde cycle exposed our vulnerable sides and tested our patience, but it’s lessons taught us to grow and evolve under the sign of Scorpio. Some folks went through this Mercury Rx cycle kicking and screaming. So it’s been tough. But with Mercury now direct and heading back to its normal pace, many of you have learned valuable lessons and are now working on fixing some mistakes and clearing up some misunderstandings, this will only get easier as our way of thinking gets more clear over the next few weeks.
Over these last six weeks, the energies have been intense, but you’ll notice a shift starting soon. With the Sun shifting from the deeper emotional waters of Scorpio, into the more bright and hopeful energy of Sagittarius, we are pushed out of the shadows of our minds and into the light of the Sun while in the Sagittarius energy!
Over the next month or so it should feel safer to explore and discover new experiences and adventures while under the Sun in Sagittarius. This energy is freeing and can help to restore our hope and faith. We can see the Universe has opened doors to opportunities that can help us expand our lives. But to truly enjoy this carefree energy we first must rid of the stuff that weighs us down. Remaining attached to emotional and mental burdens will only drag you down. So let go of all that junk! And free yourself from your concerns and worries, and live in the present moment, let the past be in the past and focus on the future.
Sagittarian energy is about the future, so make things simple and keep it real, just be honest. Don’t take that emotional baggage with you, or you could miss out on some pretty awesome opportunities.
Just a word of caution during Sagittarius Season, we tend to say out loud what we are thinking, and often we don’t think about who is listening or is around us at the time, or if we are hurting someone’s feelings perhaps. Often words can cut us like daggers and go deep, so try really hard during this time to think before you speak! Especially starting December 9th, when Mercury also shifts into the sign of Sagittarius, because remember Mercury rules our minds and how we communicate, oh yea, and this energy can really amplify the ongoing Sagittarius influence and we can say way too much sometimes. Now if you need to speak out loud and say your truth, you are in luck, you might just need to be a little frustrated or upset and then boom the truth will also come flying out! With Mars in the truth-telling sign of Scorpio now, it’s go time folks.
While the Sun is in Sagittarius we can be more curious and daring, so we will search and wander through unfamiliar territory. Feeling free to shine as you escape our fears, you’ll probably come to realize most of the fears you were feeling during Scorpio Season were just nothing more than illusions. Soon you may notice how some of those scary things you were feeling or thinking just melt away, because they simply are no longer the reality of the situation!
The Sun in Sagittarius serves as a reminder of our human existence. And that helps us to have trust and faith in the Universe once again. The space is created to believe in something again! We become the light that guides us towards a happier life. This brighter more shiny energy helps us to enjoy other people and situations. We’re full of new ideas and philosophies that can help us learn and grow. This renewed confidence gives us more courage and conviction to take the lead in our lives, and that means we can discover new paths to follow. So we can feel more inspired under the Sagittarius influence to get out and explore the world.
With the Sun in Sagittarius, and soon Mercury shifting also into Sagittarius, doors will fly open to amazing opportunities. The following list below is of life experiences that will pop up during this cycle. These are the kind of things we should be working with or doing over the next month.
school, education, books, and reading
religion, spirituality, and philosophy
dreams and Ah-ha moments
Some of you will take a new journey that’s more focused on what the true meaning of life is, as you gain more knowledge and as you realize what your sense of purpose looks like, and you can take the right paths towards your dreams and desires.
Have a good Sadge Season, and I hope you enjoy it. ~Ruby
Mars enters the sign of Scorpio today and will transit this sign until January 3rd. In Scorpio, Mars is driven and focused on getting what it wants. With Mars shifting into the sign of Scorpio it can be easier to assert yourself in the actions you take. So you can feel more driven and focused to get things done. This is a time when we are more strong-willed, passionate, and resilient.
But we also can go deep into our feelings, and at times we need space to think and process the depths of our emotions, so we can experience some sort of lesson and learn more about our own personal power. This can be a strong time to transform something in your life around your physical well-being, and/or sex life.
Once you are on a mission it can be very difficult for anyone to stop you during this time. Our focus and drive are strong, as we go after what we want! You can feel obsessed with getting to the bottom of a problem, especially if you are frustrated or angry about it. And you might be more interested in revenge, and we all know what a bad idea that can be! Yes, really!
This is a time when we can be fascinated and can get caught up with what others tend to repress, so things that have been hidden, kept secret, denied, or ignored can come out to experience and understand better. The truth will come out once again and be exposed, especially in the actions you take or if you are provoked or angry. Temper, Temper, be mindful about how you communicate with others, you could come off a bit too honest and really hurt someone’s feelings.
If you need to be more assertive, the energy will help you to be more direct, without worrying about apologies. It’s a good time for getting organized, as this energy can give you the drive to declutter your office or storage areas around the house. Mars in Scorpio is a time when we dig deeper and enjoy getting rid of anything old or outdated. We are just simply clearing the energies out to bring in something new, which can be healing. So throw out those old photo albums of your ex-boyfriend or ex-girlfriend, or get rid of anything that’s holding onto the energy from your past negative experiences. Throw it out, it’s time to let go and move forward!
We don’t want to avoid important issues now. Because we are kind of attracted to chaos and crisis which go hand in hand with Mars in Scorpio. We see the problem areas in our life as transformative and it can be exciting emotionally. There’s a point that you may feel better about feeling extreme emotions than nothing at all, as our normal everyday life and routines just are unsatisfying during this time.
This is an opportune time to ask the Universe to release whatever energies you need to let go or do away with, and also what doesn’t serve you anymore. The intentions that are set during a “Full Moon” will set you on the right path towards your hopes, wishes, and desires. This is the best time to do some energy work and release old pains and experiences that just have held you down or blocked you up! It’s time to get the old stuff out so the good stuff can come in!
During the Full Moon, we often experience an energy shift, so we must release the old energies to open things up, so we can get on the right path in life that helps us bring new and fresh energy.
What to Release under a Full Moon:
* Lower energies
* Negative patterns or bad habits
* Unhealthy situations or relationships
What to work on during the Full Moon:
*Letting go of both the people and situations that aren’t working anymore. And sometimes it is just an attitude or thought
*Clearing space for new energies to come in
*Being GRATEFUL for what you already have and what will be
This is the time when you should have a conversation with the Universe, (your higher power, Spirit Guides, Angels, God, etc!) whatever you believe in! Ask for the “Full Moon” to help illuminate the path that leads you towards your deepest desires. Simply ask to be led down a path towards your dreams and goals during your Setting Intentions rituals.
Patience is important! Remember to allow the time needed for the Moon to light the way, as it doesn’t always happen right away. But remember often this kind of work is magical and sometimes the things you want or ask for just show up! The “Full Moon” illuminates the truth and is symbolic for helping us see all that has been hidden, secret, tucked away, or suppressed. So ask for the truth to be revealed during this time.
What if you don’t know how to “Set Intentions” under the Full Moon. Follow the steps below to learn how:
Step One: Clear your Sacred Space
Clear the energy of the area or room you’re using to do your Full Moon work. You are simply calling in positive energies to work with. Burn some Sage or Incense and clear the energies. Think about where you’re going to perform your energy work. Because we create an energy vortex wherever we sit, sleep or do spiritual work! This is why you feel so comfy in your favorite chair, it feels safe and secure because you have created an energy vortex in that spot or space.
Step Two: Set the Atmosphere
Set the mood or your Full Moon Ritual. Burn some special incense, light some candles (colors do have different meanings) and play some mood or ambient music that helps you feel spiritually connected to the Universal energy you see tapping into. This can be a very different experience for everyone. Just makes sure to use whatever tools make you feel calm and peaceful. Because that’s the kind of energy you want to bring into your life.
Step Three: Let It Out
You’re going to need a notebook, paper, or a journal and something to write with. Writing pen to paper can be magical! It helps sync up the mind and body! Many try using their electronic devices but it just doesn’t seem to have the same effect. But to each their own. Then you write about what you’d like the Universe to bring in and remove. Simply write your deepest truths, wishes, and questions down. Think about what energies you’re trying to let go of and release. Write the letter like as if you were talking to an old friend. Think about what energy you’re trying to push out of your life, and what energy you’re trying to bring in, and be detailed but don’t go overboard.
It’s important to be patient and allow your work to take ahold during this process. And just know sometimes things take time. Often we just miss the signs and messages the Universe is sending because they are so subtle. They are not always so earth-shattering signs or A-ha moments that show up like a lightning bolt! More often it’s simply a bird landing in your backyard that has some sort of message or meaning for you, look up Animal Totems. You can hear a song on the radio that seems to have special meaning just for you, or see a movie and a scene seems to resonate with you on a deep personal level. Look for signs on everyday life and they just magically appear. If you pay attention and see everything as a sign, you will start to quickly pick up on what the Universe is trying to tell you! Messages and signs are always everywhere for us.
As you’re doing this work and Setting your Intentions, here are some helpful questions you can think about, for example: Ask for what you are choosing to come into your life? What changes would you like to see happen? What are you or should you be letting go of? How do you feel about what is happening in your life now? What do you want to release? Think about your long-term goals and your future, and what energy you’d like to create over the coming months.
Step Four: Visualize what you’re Creating
Now you’re going to visualize what you have written. First get comfortable again, preferably in the same place and read what you wrote very closely. Then close your eyes and take some long deep breaths, in your nose and out your mouth. See the energy of your heart center, (that’s in the middle of your chest, not your actual pumping heart) but your spiritual heart or commonly referred to as the “Heart Chakra.” Next, Visualize yourself in what you’re trying to create or manifest. For example; see yourself living in that new home, falling in love with a Soul-Mate, driving that new car, (just smell that new car smell!) Don’t just think about what you want, but make sure and “FEEL IT,” as if you are really experiencing what you’re visualizing. If this makes you laugh, cry, scream, or whatever, then go with it.
Step Five: Gratitude
It’s very important to work on releasing what you don’t want in your life during a Full Moon, but it’s equally as important to not leave a VOID after you are done. So you need to fill that space from releasing with gratitude. Being grateful for what you have and around the work you are doing. When we focus on what it is we don’t have we are focusing on “Lack”, and that will only bring in the things we don’t want. Remember what we put our attention on is what will show up! So instead think and feel the things you are grateful for in your heart. Think about what you already have and be grateful for that. Then you will attract more of that can of energy, which in turn brings in some better feeling stuff! Don’t be held captive by your pains and past trauma, call in the good stuff folks. Yes, you deserve something good, wonderful and amazing!
Allow the Universe to show you what path to follow over the next month, and let the Full Moon light up the way! Hopefully, you’ll at the very least be put on a path towards what you truly desire, all while letting go of what you don’t need anymore, it’s truly miraculous.
The New Moon takes place in the Sign of Scorpio ironically enough this October, but these energies will be felt strongly starting Saturday the 26th through the 28th. The actual New Moon comes together on Sunday the 27th in the evening here in the US.
This New Moon energy is meeting up with some other planets making it very different and challenging energy to deal with. There can be situations that provoke anger, and lies or deceptions. Lovers and relationships, in general, can have issues with high ideals that have been set and explosive attitudes around those expectations. The Uranus opposition to the New Moon is not compatible with its energy and therefore, it contradicts the awesome New Moon energy! So it may not feel like an ordinary New Moon, which is usually much more peaceful hopeful for most.
Since the Sun and Moon are both in the sign of Scorpio during this New Moon, our desires run deep and our will is stronger than usual. Our lives are under a microscope that involve our very existence, so we can become obsessed with thoughts about life and death. Scorpio is the sign of Regeneration after all. Any issues that suddenly come up now can be viewed as a matter of “life or death”, which is extreme, but so are our thoughts and emotions, which can be fiercely intense at this time.
With the New Moon in Scorpio stirring up such intense emotions, all that has been hidden, buried, repressed, taboo, or kept secret is ready to be discovered. This energy is supercharged with intense psychological energy, so it can affect our psyche in a powerful way that can help transform us! But this is not usually a fun process. Being aware is, however, half the battle and can help you understand what you need to move forward. Don’t be in denial or lie to yourself, or you won’t get the lessons involved from this New Moon energy and can struggle and suffer.
When the New Moon is in the sign of Scorpio our emotional depth mixes with our equally strong willpower to survive and succeed, at whatever we put our time and energy into. This makes for a stronger source of psychological energy to draw from. The only issue is we can catch others off guard by expressing ourselves rather suddenly and unexpectedly in a strong manner, this can cause tensions with other people, and then they may not trust us enough to deal with the real problems at hand.
This New Moon has such a different vibe with the planet Uranus almost precisely in an opposition to it! So it can feel like a Full Moon, as anxiety levels run high. The emotional Scorpio intensity is strong and needs some sort of transformation, this can make us feel excited and restless as we have a strong need for independence that can fill us full of nervous energy. Something needs to shift or change in our world in order to calm back down, but we may not even know where to start.
All of the Signs of the Zodiac will be affected by this energy, but it can be especially strong for the “Fixed Signs” of the Zodiac which are as follows; Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius, especially those born in the First decan of each sign, so the first week of each of these signs. And the “Cardinal Signs” as well so, Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn especially those born in the Second decan of their sign, which is the second week of each of those signs.
The New Moon’s Effects
During this New Moon there can be unexpected events that challenge what we have come to trust and understand to be true. Tensions can grow high and there can be rash and strong reactions from others. This influence tends to bring up issues around our emotional security and love life. Some folks will notice the feelings they’ve been stuffing deep down suddenly coming out in a very exaggerated manner. We can suddenly feel a strong urge to express our emotions out loud about our relationships, and this energy can trigger us and we may start to obsess about why we are with our partners or lovers in the first place. This creates a fog over our situations and makes it that much more confusing, especially with Mercury just about to go Retrograde also in the sign of the Scorpio. There might be a case of mistaken expectations of our partners, and what we thought they could or would do. We must sit back and observe for now, and perhaps take some sort of mental notes, but it would be silly to take any actions at this time, until the New Moon energy has passed and we are more clear and less judgmental about what we are doing and seeing!
This energy is extremely sexual, and therefore many of you will feel a strong desire to express your sexuality, but that may become frustrating or a waste of time and energy in some way. Just remember to keep your cool as this energy can cause tension, anger, and crisis, which can lead to separations and even breakups in any kind of relationship.
It’s important to have patience and remain polite to keep the peace. Try to think before reacting, and work on being more compromising. This is the best way to avoid these tense energy from kicking up! Perhaps the battles are not over for now, but do you really want to wage War under these energies? Unless you feel done with the relationship, then go for it, otherwise take a step back and a deep breathe and learn more so about how to compromise. That is what it takes to maintain a healthy relationship, and perhaps that is what this energy is trying to teach us, to be patient with our partners.
Setting Intentions with the New Moon
It may almost seem kind of scary to “Set Intentions” with this particular New Moon, due to the unstable energy it’s bringing to us, being hooked into a strong opposition with the planet Uranus. However, Scorpio energy is some strong magic folks, it is an alchemist at its very core. This is the time to go deep and ask for some kind of blessing or miracle. Being saturated by so much Scorpio energy we have the power to transform any situation in our lives. Uranus is the spark that helps creates miracles, it’s lightning speed and energy can change anything fast! Astrologers enjoy precision and this New Moon will hit us right where it counts, so it can be very powerful energy to work with! Take advantage of this powerful energy and wield it in the direction towards what you most strongly desire. This won’t be a waste of time I assure you as Scorpio is the sign that started and defined what Desire truly is in the first place.

The Sun shifts into the mysterious sign of Scorpio on October 23rd and “Scorpio Season” officially begins. Every aspect of life can feel super-charged with intensity between now and November 22nd.
Happy Birthday to all my Sun Sign Scorpions out there! But this blog is for all the Signs, so read on to learn more.
The sign of Scorpio is notoriously known for being the darkest (symbolically speaking), mysterious, and deeply psychological sign in the Zodiac, as it explores the soul when it’s under the light of the Sun and truths, deceptions, and secrets are exposed.
Scorpio’s lessons are about depth, intimacy, and transformation. Anything fake or false will be shown for what it truly is while the Sun is in this sign, so if something or someone is superficial it simply won’t work for you at this time, only the real deal will do! This sign and its energy is the detective of the Zodiac, therefore we are more interested in getting to the bottom of our problems, as we work at uncovering what’s been hidden, suppressed, or unseen. We also can be quite obsessed with other people’s problems and can feel a strong urge to help those around us. Under this energy, you might actually enjoy all that is odd, taboo, or different in the world. Anything just plain or average may not be enough for us during this time.
During Libra Season, while the Sun was in Libra over the last month we worked at being fair and equal, as our attention was on our relationships and keeping things more balanced. But under this
Scorpio energy we accept the fact that life isn’t fair, and we are learning to understand that pain and suffering are actually part of the process of life. In order to truly evolve, we must transform ourselves and perhaps go some sort of major breakdown to end something and begin anew.
Scorpio energy is also quite sexy, mysterious, and provocative! So there’s going to be some interesting situations that spark up in our relationships while the Sun is in Scorpio. And the single folks out there may search for a strong love, committed, and long-term during this time. This Scorpio influence keeps us perhaps a little more reserved about how passionate we truly feel, but we can still be strong-willed and intense. This is a time of powerful emotions and some of you might feel rather emotional during its run. This energy can transform certain things in your life, of course, depending on what part of your personal Astrology Birth Chart the Sun is cruising through is what part of your life this energy will be the most evident.
The sign of Scorpio is often represented by the Scorpion, but also, the Mythical Bird, the “Phoenix” can represent this brave sign. The legend of the Phoenix is about how once were ready to go, die off, or end our chapter in this life, this magical bird flies up in the air and catches fire and turns to dust! But from that state, it comes back and resurrects itself back to being whole. Once it has risen back to life, it is ready to start over again. This legend teaches us that sometimes we have to fall apart, and let something end, or let a part ourselves die off to resurrect and come back to life, so we can tap into some kind of new energy and start something anew.
The shadow side of Scorpio energy is we can become more easily jealous, paranoid, obsessive, and manipulative. This energy can cause some of you to be more obsessive about an issue or problem, as we can be compulsive and won’t let things just happen naturally. This, of course, will get you nowhere and it might be more difficult to stop once you have started focusing on something.
Despite how scary or creepy this all might sound, Scorpio is part of the Zodiac Wheel for a reason and we all have a little or a lot of this sign in each of our Astrology Birth Charts. Scorpio energy also gives us incredible drive and strength, which in turn can help us get through difficult times. This sign knows how to survive the worst of situations and has extra reserved up energy to get through. Scorpio energy kicks ass and takes names once it is forced to die off like the Phoenix, so it can figure out whatever it needs to know to come back. So draw upon the Scorpio energy during this time to help you take on difficult tasks or situations in your life.
Curious Mercury and loving Venus are also in the sign of Scorpio at this time, which also runs through Scorpio Season. This means our souls, hearts, and minds are all being ruled by the Scorpio energy, therefore, some of you will be breaking your lives down to rise up once again, and perhaps resurrect yourselves in some way just like the Phoenix!
This can be amazing energy to work with if you want to finish something in your life, after all, Scorpio Season is a time of endings, hence why we choose to celebrate Halloween during this time, as Halloween originated from the Holiday the “Day of the Dead,” which is a time when we should be honoring those who have passed or crossed over, it’s a time to be in touch with our ancestors who lived here before us. With so much Scorpio energy this season going around the veils between this world and other realms are very thin, and we will have an extra spooky Halloween Season as our minds are very in sync with the afterlife and paranormal. Therefore many of you will be able to connect to loved ones who have crossed more easily than usual. And those spirits and energies that are still roaming on this earthly plane will be restless, so often that means more communicative as well. But remember they have to communicate differently with us.
This is also a time when the earth sheds itself, as the Fall into Winter months is the time the planet dies off so to speak, but we know next Spring it will resurrect itself and start all over again. Ask yourself what part of your life do you need to end? What are you shedding away? What part of your life needs to die off and perhaps be started all over? Are you being forced to look at certain parts of your life now, so you will end something? This can be any part of your life, an old worn-out behavior or attitude, a situation, or it could be with a person. Or perhaps it is something spiritual within yourself.
