Astro News


By Rubys Readings 


It’s time to start listening to your messages, I’m talking about the messages the Universe, the Cosmos or whatever you want to call it is trying to send to you. This week there’s going to be many signs from the Universe and they can show up in the most unusual, bizarre, and strange ways. But there will be some that are very clear. Many people believe that if they get a sign more than once especially if you get them twice, and definitely if you get them three times, that is not just a coincidence, it’s not something you should just ignore because it truly means something.


Good News!

We have been under an extremely intense energy, that’s also been sort of a sad really since October 3rd, with Venus the planet of love & money in Retrograde. But as of the 16th, Venus has gone direct again finally, so relationships and our finances can finally get back on track again. If you broke up with somebody during this time and you’re hoping to mend your relationships perhaps, you probably have more of a fighting chance with Venus back and moving the right way again. This Transit can possibly help you reconcile, but if that’s not always how these things work out, so if that’s what you are experiencing then the relationship was likely never meant to be or was supposed to end. So it’s been interesting but it’ll be even more interesting to see how this plays out over the coming weeks ahead because many of my clients and blog readers have had to come to terms with their relationships and make some very hard choices. Venus in Retrograde brought back a lot of old and past lovers, but most of these relationships didn’t probably work out, especially if they were brand new, but there was a reason that you needed to hang out with that person and I’m sure if you don’t already know you will understand it all soon enough!

Mercury went into its complete Retrograde cycle on the 16th! And this Mercury in Retrograde is proving to be quite interesting thus far, it’s time to double-check everything you’re doing even if you think you’ve already done so, at least through December the 6th when this cycle ends. There will be a period of time after December 6th where communications can be kind of wonky, so for two weeks after we just have to get adjusted to Mercury going back to its normal pace, while it’s in it’s after Retrograde “Shadow Period.”



A Look Ahead

The Full Moon occurs on November 23/34, in the sign of Gemini. And you may gain some sort of clarity about an issue in your life. Make sure to “Set Intentions” and this time make it more so around what you are wanting to release and let go of in your life, it can be anything from people, situations, to behaviors.


The Full Moon occurs on November 23/34, in the sign of Gemini. And you may gain some sort of clarity about an issue in your life. Make sure to “Set Intentions” and this time make it more so around what you are wanting to release and let go of in your life, it can be anything from people, situations, to behaviors. 


Look for Signs 

Many of you have already been dreaming about your loved ones who have crossed over. 


With the Full Moon in Gemini approaching and Neptune in the sign of Pisces moving forward the same day, many of you will have some sort of visit from your relatives or loves ones in your dreams. It’s actually also pretty common around the Holiday Season and especially during Full Moon’s that people experience some sort of encounter with their loved ones who are passed. 


Often our loved ones come to visit us with messages, but sometimes they just come to check on us as well. And due to how much they are on our minds during the Holidays there’s much more activity when we miss them the most. So look for these visitations to happen more often as the energy of the Full Moon builds starting November 20th until it peaks on the 23rd. This also may include paranormal activity so the spirits can be a bit restless right now, as we did just get through Halloween and the Sun is still in Scorpio, hence it being still Scorpio Season, so the Veils between this world and the other side remains low right through the 25th or so! 


Secrets Exposed! 

The planet Neptune is also going direct on November 24th, so since June 18th, it’s been in Retrograde as well. What’s been hidden, unseen, or unknown is being revealed now, it’s hard to hide from our secrets. The cats out of the bag! So if you’ve already figured something out, then perhaps some of your secrets are out in the open. But there’s still time for some unexpected news or something hidden to come to light. 
Have a good week folks and remember if you have to express yourself right now be tactful and think about what you are saying first!

Mercury in Retrograde – How to Be Productive

Jupiter in Sagittarius


A Time Of Awareness

Nov 8, 2018 – Dec 2, 2019

When the lucky planet Jupiter moves into its own sign Sagittarius from November 9th through December 3rd there’s a stronger urge to move forward and improve things in our life. We generally speaking need more freedom to have some kind of movement, and we are more willing and open to learn and educate ourselves about different places and cultures around the world. 

Sagittarius is a fire sign and with Jupiter being ruled by this sign we identify strongly with our own opinions,perceptions, and beliefs when Jupiter is. In the sign of Sagittarius. So we can take things more personally than usual, especially if others disagree. It is easier to create our own opportunities, and hopefully a little luck during this time, as we feel content when we think about things in bigger terms, and when taking calculated risks and when we feel more confident! 

Jupiter in Sagittarius is all about learning how to develop a deeper understanding of the world but also ourselves, through the way we pursue things. Things like travel, philosophy, academics, literature, morality, and our belief systems all will come into stronger focus as we are challenged in different ways to open our minds and go above and beyond what we know and question our knowledge and judgments. 

Because Jupiter while in Sadge teaches us how to be more broadminded and forward thinking, there may be challenges towards any bigotry, sexism, or short-sighted attitudes. We are learning how to believe more so that everyone deserves to follow their own beliefs and path, we will be handed out lessons around how to increase our tolerance and acceptance of others and their ways, and to respect others freedom, and give everyone the right to do their own thing period!

Jupiter’s effects help us expand our consciousness and our experiences, knowledge, and a basic understanding of life. Jupiter itself represents hope, joy, growth, optimistic, generosity, and abundance. While Jupiter was in Scorpio over the last year, from November of 2017 to 2018 it helped us expand our awareness about our intimate relationships, coping skills, and personal power. But now for the next year, it’s about the adventure, and how we can learn, grow, mature, and evolve.


The one issue with this placement is Jupiter and the sign of Sagittarius isn’t so good with moderation. And we can feel overly confident to the point where we can be reckless, or use our big mouths with know it all attitudes, so this usually occurs when we’re just not handling this energy so well. We can feel dissatisfied and grow restless, and those nerves can grow stronger as our visions also get bigger and grand about the future and increased wealth, and a better way of life is more sought after!

This is a time when we can feel inspired to learn more and take a more open and wider view of the world, and explore maybe some new area of life or go on a great adventure to seek greener pastures. Maybe the things that bring you joy, and what’s truly the most important part of our lives that will be around in the future. This is a time when there’s a strong urge to break free from your responsibilities or commitments, and we can become weary and dissatisfied with the way things have been in our personal life. This can cause a continuous sense of ickiness if you have to high expectations and take things too seriously.


Enjoy this time, and get out there and grab your opportunities, because they will be handed out all over, more so than what we dealt with all of 2018, make sure and keep expectations on the low end but allow yourself to believe life can and will get better.

“Autumn Equinox” – Balance

42368349_10155419177431268_8857686516839743488_n
“Autumn Equinox” – Balance
Today is a special and magical day!
It’s the Autumn Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere! Happy Mabon my friends!
This is a special time when we celebrate the change of seasons. Lots of people from different backgrounds and cultures all around the world will be celebrating ancient old traditions with festivals, fairs, and parties all weekend long!
The Autumnal Equinox is the time of balance between day and night and is the time before night takes over and brings the coming Winter Season that is a time of darkness and endings. This duality between light and dark exists within humanity, and in the work of our spiritual transformation. All things must end before they can be born, all spiritual ascent requires descent first, and all those who long for light must firstly face their own inner darkness and overcome it. The Autumn Equinox symbolizes a point of inner preparation in the process of enlightenment, to make way for the new awareness to be born within at the Winter Solstice.
This shift into Autumn is a strong turning point in energy and is a great time for “Setting Intentions.” Treat this time like you would under a Full or New Moon, which will be easy since the Full Moon in Aires is already building up the energy to come together Monday evening, so it’s right on time.
This should also be a Day of Gratitude, after all, we’ve made it through a rough Summer season with very high temperatures for extended amounts of time, and an extremely strong Eclipse Season, and an extraordinary amount of planets in their Retrograde
cycles at one time! It’s been intense, to say the least! But we’re finally moving into the last stages of the Retrogrades time and amazing doors of opportunity are opening now for each of every one of us, as amazing gifts will continue to be revealed to us this Fall Season.
It’s important to Set your Intentions for the Fall, this Saturday. It’s a powerful time of the year to set goals of all kinds that can manifest during this season.
Click Here to learn how to Set Intentions.
Learn how to create a little magic of your own on this special day! This is a time when doors of opportunity open to a new realm and new energy emerges. It’s a very potent, strong energy, and is a good time to focus on how you are feeling about your life and what you want to manifest next. Think about the light and darker sides of yourself, the positive and negative parts of your personality as you start to tap into your shadow self through the Fall Season, as you balance your physical existence and spiritual needs. Look at the whole picture and your world both inside and out, to assess what needs to change and heal!

Venus in Scorpio

Venus in Scorpio: Intense, Passionate, Committed
September 9 – October 1st

fa639c398c57932824e0f5d7a8801f9d

 

Venus enters Scorpio today and this will be a time of intensity, passion, and commitment in our relationships and around our financial affairs. This is conveniently perfect timing with the spooky Fall season right around the corner as the mistress herself moves into sultry Venus, and any skeletons in your romantic closets can fall right out, so we can be more secretive about both money and love. This influence can bring intimate encounters with someone sexy, magnetic, and maybe even irresistible. This can tie the bonds between lovers and friends on a soul level, and also is a time of healing and transformation in our relationships! But often to get to the point of healing you have to pull out the not so fun emotional stuff first and do some serious analyzing.

Venus in soulful, seductive Scorpio has the power to draw out what we love and what is superficial in our love lives and concerning our financial affairs, so secrets are often exposed. If you are cheating on a lover or partner, may I suggest you figure out what you want during this time, as this energy is going to draw out the truth around things like jealousy, secrets, abuse, and misguided behavior! Under the energy of the Scorpion we like to get to the bottom and below the surface of situations so we can examine issues of power, fear, sex, and desire more so than usual. Astrologers seem to consider Scorpio a tough sign for beautiful and sweet Venus, as Scorpio is not as concerned with superficiality and prefers chasing after love that will transform. So just like the Scorpion Queen herself, you may feel more like getting below the surface to examine things deeply in your relationships during this time.

Venus rules over our relationships and is more sociable, friendly, and affectionate. Scorpio is about passion and likes to go deeply into love. This means we might crave more meaningful and intense emotional experiences while Venus is in Scorpio. Depth takes hold and becomes more important than intimacy, and pushes us to give up on just dating as we desire something more long-lasting and romantic instead. The only problem is people are going to again experience the darker side of Venus which is quite wild, think about what people do in the name of love sometimes, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows under this energy, it can get dark folks and you can get more obsessive when Venus is in this sign and jump way to fast when it comes to matters of the heart.

While Venus is in Scorpio our inner detective is on high-alert and wants to figure out what’s lurking in the shadows in our relationships. Those thoughts start to play more and more in our heads, and we tend to start looking at all the signs around us to see why we don’t feel at peace in our relationships. This can become obsessive and can feel more paranoid or jealous than usual under this influence. It’s a time to dig deeper beneath the surface and discover what we are intuitively picking up on and get to the truth of any matter, the light is going to shine on what’s really going on. But we are more willing to stick things out to find some sort of common ground in our relationships and with friends, and co-workers or business partners. So we can either make things work or let it go! This is a time for a major reality check if we like it or not.

Under this influence, we might experience the more Dark Side of Venus, which can turn her influence into something more mysterious and secretive, therefore we aren’t going to feel like playing nice like we have been while Venus was in the sign of Libra. Instead, we want to dig deeper and spark some sort of much-needed change in our relationships and around any issues we are having with money or our financial affairs. Just think of the world Transform, and that means things can get rough as we enter into a time of deep analysis and psychotherapy in our relationships.

Venus in Scorpio also brings out concerns around money and any power struggles you may be involved in. Those little subtle issues that you ignored tend to be more obvious and exposed under this energy. How our money is spent becomes a bigger deal now, especially in our partnerships where financial resources are shared. This also seems to be a time when we have a much stronger interest in making financial investments and when we can make powerful decisions about loans, insurance, or in any area of our lives that concerns money.

While Venus in Scorpio we can feel intense and this can end up feeling like a heavy time emotionally speaking, but it can be an amazingly transformative time. All of this super intense energy leads to stronger bonds if you take on the challenge of this transit, but it can be hard on us both emotionally and physically speaking, but you can end up changing things for the better. This is a sexy time that could end up bringing you and your partner even closer together or help you meet a soulmate that connects with you on a very deep soul level. Either way, all we can do is ride the wave of this energy and keep ourselves and compulsions in check.

September Astro Weekly Newsletter Pt. 1

Rubys Readings

What are the planets doing exactly now?

Desktop-helloautumn-1856x1161

We are now in the final quarter of the year folks, so September through December of 2018 is finally a good time to start untangling the mess that all the Retrograde Planets might have caused, so it just makes sense to work on the areas of your life that you feel somewhat unsure, confused, stuck, or just blocked in. Now that passionate Mars has moved forward and out of its Retrograde cycle, and hard-nosed Saturn has moved direct and out of its Retrograde cycle on September 6th, our lives are slowly starting to move again, which means we can hopefully join in with this energy and move forward as well. Clarity will be gained from our work and careers, which is good news for lots of folks who have had major issues with their jobs during the Retrogrades.

 

Heads up! 

Venus has just started its “Shadow” phase before it goes into its Retrograde cycle soon in October. This brings some more insight into our love lives, and this can help us learn what changes must be made in our relationships and also around our finances. And with Venus now in the sign of Scorpio, we get to learn deeply what we are doing in our relationships both wrong and right. If you are one who is holding onto a secret of some kind in your relationship or doing something sneaky that affects it, be extra careful under this influence, skeletons in the closet seem to fall right out into the open and come up to process and figure out!

 

Saturn just started moving forward again, but it’s slow-moving and then yet Venus, another planet is also changing direction and headed backward in Retrograde at the same time. So soon we might start to feel like things are headed in the right direction, but there are probably a lot of unanswered questions after such a slow-moving summer full of block and delays. It’s finally time for a change.

 

Besides the Retrogrades, there is another important Astrological connection that’s already begun that you should know about. This is hitting some of you quite hard right now. It’s called a T-Square and these connections are not so easy to navigate as the energies are pulled into more harsh directions. This month’s T-Square involves Venus (love & money), Mars (anger & motivation), and Uranus (divine messages, changes, inventions, rebellion, & liberation.) These connections are already causing sudden and unexpected surprises and turn of events, as they all battle it out through the end of September. Therefore, you may feel under attack in some way, as there could be some surprises in both business and personal relationships to contend with.

 

The energies from September 10th through the 15th will peak, and you will more than likely feel the intensity of the T-Square in one way or another, off and on throughout September. This can cause certain effects like unpredictable events and lots of big shifts and changes, also whether issues which have already begun this week and possible shocks and surprises both positive and negative. There also can be frustrations that lead to unexpected outbursts of anger, so aggressive behavior, arguments, and fussiness can be an issue.

 

Unexpected changes in our relationships, especially with Venus shifting into its Retrograde cycle soon, which can affect us both personally and professionally. There can be quite interesting attractions to people and different kinds of relationships formed, and you might just feel bit by the “love bug” during September time, as there will be some love at first sight stories to tell. And changes or sudden unexpected events around money, for some of you this influence, can have an extremely positive effect financially speaking.

 

Here’s a brief breakdown of the T-Square Formation for all you Astrology buffs:

  • Venus is in the sign of Libra and is making a tense Square to Saturn in Capricorn
  • Venus will shift into the sign of Scorpio on the 10th, but also will oppose Uranus in Taurus.
  • Mars shifts out of Capricorn and into the sign of Aquarius and is Squaring Venus and Uranus both.

 

picsart_10-09-03946462823.jpg

Let me also mention that the second and even some of the third week of September might be highly beneficial for some folks, especially those born under the signs of Cancer, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Aquarius. Blessings are coming in as well, and some of you might just experience some sort of miracle, so hold on tight and ride this wave of good fortune. You may also find that the unexpected events I am talking about are also blessings in disguise. Now not everyone born under these signs will experience good luck, but some of you just might receive some sort of good news, so just wanted to put that out there.

 

If you find yourself on the other end of these influences and feel frustrated or upset, here’s a little bit of helpful advice to get you through the tough times. First off don’t forget to breathe, it really can help you get calm and find a better space to be in, it has been scientifically proven over and over that breath is the key to calming the body and mind down. It’s important to not have any expectations about how things should go or how they are going to be one way or another, with Uranus involved we really should “expect the unexpected,” which so far has proven to be very accurate for the early days of September.

 

A Warning:

If someone starts to show signs of frustration, agitation or just gets angry with you, then it’s time to get away from them and give them their personal space. Under this intense energy, it’s not worth getting into arguments or it can go way overboard! Don’t allow someone to suck you into his or her drama! Do not pick fights with others or be antagonize others or you may have to deal with some raw anger and who knows where that may lead.

Full Moon Ahead! 

 

6d21f9f43a100ea3ebd2c80eb90e5628

 

There’s a beautiful Full Moon building up energy that will come together on Sunday, August 26, in the sign of the fish, Pisces. There are also at least five other more harmonious planet connections around the same time, and they are aligning with a couple of fortunate Stars! Under these Cosmic influences, it should be a good time to learn how to develop your own intuition and psychic abilities. Find some tools to assist you, like gemstones that activate the third eye or special oils to wear for example. All of these tools can assist you during the Full Moon and help you work with the energies. And often just lighting a candle, holding your favorite gemstone, while writing down what you wish to release or let go of can work the best.

Ask the Universe to help you develop and expand your own special unique gifts and talents. Did you know we all have our very own set of gifts, some folks are aware of them and might call themselves an Empath, Psychic, or Clairvoyant? But all of those labels are just how you connect to the Universe and its energies, really. If you are one who isn’t aware of your special psychic gifts you might be blocked up in some way due to learning how to survive life and simply not remembering that they are part of your very own spirit.

Some Good News! 
A lovely “Grand Trine” in Earth signs will be coming together on August 25, this lovely aspect is when the Sun in Virgo, Saturn in Capricorn, and Uranus in Taurus all work together. This energy can help us stay very grounded, practical, and stable. But this energy can also make you feel almost too grounded and sort of heavy, this will pass quite quickly. On August 26, the Full Moon will mesh well with this Grand Trine energy. Finally, there’s a shift and things start to make sense again, and any doors or windows that were closed will start be opening!

This particular Full Moon is great for working with our finances and for making money, or just seeing some dreams come true. Some folks will get the answers they have been looking for and there’s going to be some exciting opportunities for both personal and professional successes that can help you set up some kind of financial security for your future. A whole lot of folks are already actively looking and applying for new jobs this month and this will help a lot of you find new work which brings in a stronger sense of security.

Pay attention and look for the opportunities that present themselves over the last week of August, as this Full Moon in Pisces can help you improve something about yourself, or in your important relationships, and in life in general. The success will probably come through these new opportunities that will eventually turn into wealth and security!

This energy is amazingly strong for attracting all kind of prosperity. So make sure to Set Intentions, make out wish lists, or do some kind of ritual around this Full Moon, and call it in!! I highly suggest starting soon so you can do some sort of daily ritual to call in this energy to you, just do something proactive to draw money to you! One example is to write yourself a Check and place it under a crystal of some kind, everyone is different so I am not going to suggest one certain kind of crystal or gemstone, you go by how you feel. Leave it up until some kind of financial blessing shows up.

I do suggest, however, that you start working with this energy during the time when the Moon is increasing in light, rather than decreasing in light. So you will want to start from the New to the Full Moon, which if you are reading this on August 21st, is from now until the Full Moon. This way, when you plant your seeds of intention, they can begin to sprout and as the light increases slowly until it becomes a Full Moon, and so will the energy of your wishes!

A Look Ahead!
The day after the Full Moon, we will see fiery Mars goes direct.
It’s been Retrograde for months now, everyone is going to feel this shift in energy, and it can be either very positive or a very strong hit so to speak, so pay attention because big things are happening folks! As Mars slows down it’s going to stir people up, and some of the people are going to feel their emotions in an unhinged sort of way, and that can bring something to an end! Expect for folks to let out their pent-up anger and frustrations. Some of you may really want to start a fight of some kind, so watch for confrontations from out of the blue, they could get super serious fast. Our emotions have been suppressed or stuffed away for a while now and let all that out could easily be blamed on the upcoming Full Moon on Sunday and it’s build up this week.

But a lot of the cause for the anger is actually Mars coming out of Retrograde, and really us being able to finally express ourselves, it’s like deflating a balloon. It’s the calm before the storm, as this explosive energy can come out with a bang and then a strong sense of calm will wash over you afterward. If you are an Aries or have strong Aries or Scorpio placements in your Astrology Birth Chart, you need to be especially careful of what you say! You could easily explode!!

Solar Eclipse/New Moon Information and More!
By Rubys Readings

The Solar Eclipse is Getting Closer occurring on August 11th

The beauty of this upcoming New Moon/Solar Eclipse is that whatever you ask for or visualize just might show up by the Full Moon August 26th. This doesn’t always happen, sometimes things take time. But this energy is different and some folks are going to see their desires and wishes come true right away. So remember the night before the New and Full Moon’s this month make out some sort of lists or offerings, whatever you want or do and ask the Universe for what you truly desire. “Set Intentions”, and if you don’t know how just click this link to learn more: https://goo.gl/MGrXfD

The Big Eclipse in Leo is at 18 degrees on August 11th

How will the Eclipse energy affect your life?

This is next weekend folks, it’s a great time to manifest your hopes, wishes, and dreams. Set those intentions, please! Maybe say a prayer, mantra, or blessing, or several if the mood strikes. Depending on where this New Moon Eclipse falls in your own personal Astrology “Birth Chart”, is where the Eclipse influence will affect you for the next six months. If you’d like an “Eclipse Reading” with me, so we can discuss it, get a hold of me and just ask how to purchase an “Eclipse Reading.”

I will do all the necessary research into your own Chart and get it all ready to discuss. A New Moon’s influence usually last for about a month, but a Solar Eclipse can last for up to six months, so expect some changes to occur into the next year.

Solar Eclipse time table – August 11th

Do your Setting Intentions work around these times or before you go to bed the night before, or as soon as you get up that morning. Just make yourself do it!

Heads Up! 
Mercury Goes Out of Retrograde on August 19th and Goes Direct once again HOORAY!!

Mercury the planet of communication, ruler of our thinking processes turns direct, and a plan will finally start to come together! Now is the time to incorporate all that you’ve have learned during its Retrograde cycle, so if you have been thinking about or reviewing something important since July 25th (or a few weeks prior), when Mercury turned Retrograde, and you have used this time wisely now you can proceed with fewer obstacles and get on the right path, because you are informed and have a more realistic understanding about where you stand and what you need to be doing in order to be successful. With all the knowledge you now have, you are just better prepared and ready to make important decisions about your life.

Still, keep in mind that Mercury’s change in direction occurs also close to the time when the Solar Eclipse/New Moon occurs. So the atmosphere will be unstable and things are in flux and often changes just happen. Don’t let yourself lose it and overreact to whatever it is you learn or hear during this time, because everything is still a bit confusing until Mercury is back at its normal pace around the first week of September. Just take your time before you respond to anyone or react.

Good News! 
Jupiter makes a beautiful Trine to Neptune also August 19th

This is going to help increase and even enhance your psychic abilities. So it’s a great time to open up your third-eye. This energy can help us embark on a new spiritual journey, it’s a fresh start or new beginning. It helps us to awaken our spirit and see the truth. Great day to make some sort of spiritual quest. And for getting a Psychic Reading hint hint!

As Jupiter in powerful Scorpio makes a beautiful Trine to spiritual Neptune in holistic Pisces, someone is in a position to help you, and more than likely will. If you can also be that person of assistance to someone else then do it or help with a cause near and dear to your heart. This amazing planet combination in Water Signs can bring about great empathy across the board, but it also can help increase your feelings and bring emotional overload! All of you who believe yourselves to be Empaths, Sensitives, Healers, or Psychics please make sure to put an energetic shield of protections up, as you can absorb way too much energy during this time and get burnt out fast! And make sure you are tending to your own personal needs while helping others.

Any expressions of love, including romance, can find happier conclusions during this time, that doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll get everything you think you need or want, but the outcome will be happier in the long run whatever happens. Emotionally, the energy will be warmer but not fiery, so we don’t get burnt up. It’s a good time to express yourself in an artistic way, so take in live play or concert. And there’s still work to get done, like taking out the trash, that never ends! But do something to relax and have fun, get out but also take some time to meditate when this influence comes in.

Venus Enters Libra

 

VENUS ENTERS LIBRA

Venus is in Libra from August 6-September 9.

The Goddess of Love is shifting gears as it changes signs around the Zodiac Wheel every 5 weeks, and this time it’s landing in the sign it rules, the sign of charm and relationships, Libra! However, this energy can also be rather aggressive (Libra is also believed to be Co-Ruled by Uranus.) In love and money endeavors we will go after what we want during this cycle. But we generally speaking are ready to keep things peaceful and harmonious with our lovers and business partners and just in our life.

You may feel airy and somewhat detached while Venus is in Libra with friends and in life in general, but you can become obsessive about keeping your relationships good, especially your intimate ones and in your business partnerships. We can be quite accommodating with other people period, and more than willing to negotiate and compromise. Which is great for making deals and just getting along better.

Because we are especially idealistic about love under Venus in Libra, we don’t tend to see the issues in our relationships, as we can just ignore them instead and pretend everything is perfectly normal, therefore, we may not see how dependent, inconsistent, or superficial we are acting with our partners. We do not like unkind or shadowy behavior during this time, and it can totally turn us off because we are meant to balance the light and dark energies that are around us. We prefer for things to be done a certain way, and to avoid anything unpleasant we tend to ignore or look over important deeper issues that are playing out in our relationships, as this can be a strong time for denial.

It’s important not to ignore our partners or we can suffer in silence, secretly feeling resentful that nothing is getting addressed or changed. Speak up even if it is uncomfortable, that is breakthrough! Your reluctance will only trap you and then you can end up privately suffering while feeling you are the martyr for doing so. Resentments can build and later come between you and your lover or remember also business partners, once Venus shifts out of Libra in October and into more deeper thinking Scorpio.

This is a time when we appreciate anything that is artistic and beautiful. We can seriously spend some mola if we aren’t careful under these energies, so watch your wallet. We want to change our environment and make it more pleasant and beautiful to look at, especially in our home, as it is our sanctuary under this influence more so than usual, which makes it a great time for redecorating or making home improvements. But don’t forget the Retrogrades planets are at play right now, so we should wait until late August to make any major changes or even early September.

“Time To Take A Look Within”- August 2018 Forecast

August 2018 Forecast
by Ruby

August of 2018 is starting out on an interesting note being smack in the middle of Eclipse Season. The two July Eclipses are behind us now, but there is a third Eclipse – New Moon on August 11 that can change our plans a bit. The atmosphere is still highly charged up by the Total Lunar Eclipse on July 27. I will have much more on this later.

But on August 2 we’re dealing with Mars Squaring Uranus! This Square is super powerful and it’s the second one in a series of three, therefore this energy will continue to play out through the end of September. Mars is Retrograde, which causes more frustrations than usual. And with Mars being so close to the planet Earth right now, it’s actually closer than its been in years, so its influence is increased on our lives. This has already brought a lot of fiery energy into our lives, and some folks may feel like they are at a fever pitch! But before you lose your cool, there is a beautiful Trine forming between Jupiter and Neptune that can help us let go of any anger or resentments we have.

Our minds are quite focused on expressing ourselves more directly and effectively, with Mercury in Retrograde in the sign of Leo, as we look for attention from others. Under this influence, worrying is definitely boring, because our focus in on enjoying life, need I remind you Mercury is Retrograde, and this means we may be worrying as well, especially about our children and relationships. While Mars Squares Uranus the first past of August, you should be extra careful about acting impulsive. Soon after, there’s a Trine connection between Saturn and surprising Uranus, which makes this an ideal time to make some positive changes in our lives. Check yourself and stay focused, as you slowly work towards your long-term goals. This influence can help keep your mind distracted long enough so you may be calm and even patient, then you can plan out things accordingly.

With so many planets moving backward during the month of August, it certainly can be exhausting and intense feeling at times. There’s Mercury, Mars, Saturn, Neptune, and Pluto all Retrograde now, along with Chiron, and soon Uranus will be in Retrograde on August 7. This High Retrograde Season means we are more vulnerable and in a subjective place, as ideas are just being developed. But it can be difficult to be patient with the Sun in Leo pushing us to get into the spotlight!

There’s a partial Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 11th that will be visible in Northern Europe and North Eastern Asia. This is the third and final Eclipse of this Eclipse season! The Solar Eclipse will mainly be influenced by a connection being made to Mercury while in Retrograde, the main themes will be around thinking, worrying, self-expression, contemplation, discussions, and debates. Watch what you are expressing and verbalizing during that time.

This New Moon Eclipse in the Sign of Leo on August 11th is conjunct or connecting to the asteroid “Pallas-Athena”, and the planet of ideas and communication, Mercury, which is making a tense Square to Jupiter in Scorpio, she is the speaker of our highest and deepest truth! Pallas-Athena is a warrior goddess and can help us find more peaceful ways to resolve disputes due to her feminine wisdom and ability to see overreaching patterns. Currently, her vision is effectively stronger than Jupiter’s, which is in the sign of Scorpio, so this influence has kept our perspective more closed off than usual.

Back on July 25th Mercury went into Retrograde, and on August 18 Mercury will be out of its Retrograde cycle officially, but we still may have to deal with the AFTER Shadow period for about two weeks, so through the first week of September. This is going to open up many doors of opportunity because now we can sign those contracts and start new jobs, and maybe fall in love with whomever we want, at least until Venus goes Retrograde in October, yea I know lol, but life will get moving once again at the end of August.

There is also a beautiful water Trine between Jupiter and Neptune on August 19th, this will be the third and final meeting in this series. The aspect has helped us find more positive perspectives during a very difficult time with all the planets in Retrograde, it’s promoted spiritual growth and will continue to do so through the end of September, as it allows us to release the past.

The Sun enters the earthy sign of Virgo on the 23rd. This helps us to get more grounded and stable as we prepare for the Full Moon. The Sun in Virgo brings in a more sensible way of thinking, as we are more hands-on, you can greatly benefit over the next month once this starts by living simply and being more practical. The Sun in Virgo will also be harmonizing with Uranus and Saturn which are both in Earth Signs forming an amazing Grand Trine in Earth Signs. Regarding our health, pay special attention to your intestinal and digestive issues because Virgo the Virgin rules these areas of the body.

On August 26th, there will be a Full Moon in the sign of Pisces. The brings fantasy and reality together, the spiritual and the material blend, even though these things are completely opposite of each other, boundaries come down and lines get blurred which means separating one from the other will be difficult.  Because this lovely combination of Pisces energy is creative and magical, this energy will bring in a strong harmonious influence. This Full Moon is a time to take the negative patterns and behaviors and balance ourselves out. The Pisces emphasis on this Full Moon will bring out the need to contemplate and relax.

This Full Moon is an opportunity to find what is totally magical about our lives. We should be tapping into our spiritual self through things like meditation, yoga, spiritual exercises, or anything that helps us balance our mind, body, and spirit together, which will allow our plans and lives to flow much more easily.

Have a great August,

Mercury in Retrograde – How to Be Productive

Mercury in Retrograde – How to Be Productive
by Rubys Readings

Have you noticed your electronics breaking down or glitching out? Are you struggling with misunderstandings or having communication issues with people? Has your Wifi, computer, smartphone, and anything associated with technology been acting strangely? Are you forgetting words and sentences? Are emails and messages online randomly glitching out or disappearing altogether? Then there’s a very good chance you have been experiencing the side effects of “Mercury in Retrograde.”

Mercury is the plant that governs over communication, travel, how we express ourselves, how we talk to others and ourselves, and our thought process, and often electronics due to being part of communication get caught up in there somewhere. When Mercury is in its Retro cycle or appears to be moving backward, things can go a little haywire here on planet Earth from its influence.

Throughout this post, I will be referring to Mercury in Retrograde as Mercury Rx. Rx is the actual symbol used in Astrology for “Retrograde,” and it helps me shorten this down a bit.

I have been writing about what not to do during a Mercury in Rx cycle for many years now. And even though I believe strongly in the advice I give, especially about how we shouldn’t be signing contracts or starting new jobs or relationships, or going on any long distance trips, it just seems to get to a point where I’m constantly telling only the negative side of things of this aspect, which really is a drag. And then it feels like the Cosmos really has no other point of having the planets go backward or Retrograde but to simply annoy us! Which isn’t how it works.

So here are some facts about a Mercury in Rx cycle. Each Mercury in Rx cycle lasts for 3 weeks, and that’s not including its “Shadow Phases”, which are before and after a Mercury in Rx cycle. Each shadow phase lasts for three weeks as well, and they usually occur two times a year but sometimes even up to three times. So that makes each Mercury in Rx cycle a nearly two-month event, but mind you not everyone feels this fully during the whole cycle. Some people feel it more before, some folks have a harder time during, and a rare few more after the actual Retrograde cycle occurs and more so during the after Shadow phase. Everyone is different.

Being born during a Mercury in Rx cycle myself, I fully understand its effects on a deep level and just what really happens during its cycle. I’ve had my fair share of intimate Mercury Rx moments over the years, and I could go on and on! In some ways, I live in this electronic glitchy world full of misunderstandings and little mishaps all the time! Yes, heavy sigh, it’s frustrating but what can one do but learn from it. Therefore, I am pretty use to it, but still thoroughly annoyed by it! LOL.

But with all of that being said, I have also learned that “Energy Follows Thought” bottom line! No matter what the Cosmos is doing, I have proven to myself time and time again that if you focus on what it is you really want, you can ride the waves of any negative Astrological influence and come out of it with something more positive. Not to say that if you make a list of what not to do during Mercury in Rx that you won’t have issues, because whatever part of your Astrology “Birth Chart” Mercury Rx is transiting is the part of your life it will affect the most, and with this particular aspect there’s not a lot you can do to get around it, but I am here to guide you and try to help to the best of my ability.

Since I became aware of Mercury and it’s Retrograde cycles at a very young age, I have learned a great deal about how to align my energy better with the Cosmos, to seek and find balance. So I thought I would shed some light on how one can be productive during a Mercury in Rx cycle. So instead of explaining what NOT to do during this time, let’s focus on the progress we can make instead.

Astrologers are constantly explaining how during this cycle, communication is broken down, well that made me think about when something or someone is broken down it can be an opportunity to rebuild the energy back up again, and to align better with our soul path in life. Which means perhaps all the things glitching out or not working during this time, or the misunderstandings that seem to come along with Mercury in Rx, are being brought to us for a reason. Perhaps for a higher purpose, maybe to help us understand something we otherwise may not have noticed, and to bring us clarity! But you may be scratching your head and thinking with everything breaking down like computers or our Wifi, how do these random annoyances have any meaning or substance spiritually? The answer is simple, Mercury is telling you to UNPLUG and take a break, the Cosmos, the Universe is giving us a big time out! It’s time to get quiet and stop the constant chatter, get away from the constant movement and stimulus that plagues our lives nowadays. Listen to your higher-self and your spirit! And no it’s not conducive to be unplugged and miss work, or run away from the world everytime Mercury goes into Rx, I get it! But it does mean you can take a Vacation for even a day or two, and simply unplug from the outside noise. If that’s just impossible to do during this time than take just 30 mins a day during Mercury in Rx and really every day and unplug, and go meditate and recharge your own personal batteries. This is a time to find ways to turn your mind off, no more worrying or thinking constantly.

Sometimes we have to start over to achieve our goals, and during a Mercury Rx cycle, it should be the rule of thumb! It’s important to not get bent all out of shape and frustrated, and realize this is a time to re-work, re-do, re-learn, and do re-search. Don’t feel bad, trust me I can sympathize as I have already mentioned, I was born during a Mercury in Rx cycle and I have learned throughout the years once I do something, to do it again, so every time I listen and redo things the issues or situations I am involved in often seem to work out for the better. Just ask my second husband! Yes, I had to even redo marriage! But that’s the extreme example. The bottom line is it can be very frustrating for those folks who aren’t used to it. Taking the time to redo everything all the time frankly can be exhausting, but take my advice, as during a Mercury in Rx cycle it’s the best thing you can do for yourself!

Even the planet Mercury itself is going back through a part of your own personal Astrology “Birth Chart” right now, and a certain sign of the Zodiac as well, and therefore it’s backtracking to help you learn and understand something you’ve probably already have done or been through before. You have to take steps back during Mercury in Rx to move forward.

Here is a list to help remind you just what you can do that actually works during Mercury in Rx. Good Luck And Happy Mercury in Retrograde

How to be Productive during Mercury in Retrograde:

REWORK SCHEDULES: Take a look at your schedule and ask: What’s working or not? Be flexible during this phase, and just know you may have to change your game plan. Think about letting go of any responsibilities that aren’t yours or that aren’t working for you. It’s a time for cutbacks.

DECLUTTER: It’s a great time to get organized and get rid of stuff, and so many of you need to clear out old junk anyway! During a Mercury Rx cycle is the best time to get into your closet, basement, shed, or attic and rid of what you don’t use anymore. I mean go through everything, even old junk drawers and make sure and recycle. Remember when you get rid of old stuff, you are getting rid of the old energy as well that’s attached to it, and you are making room for new fresh energy to come in, which can bring in new beginnings, wealth, prosperity, and better health and overall Karma. Let’s not forget it’s a great time to dump Karmic debt as well. Also, remember your intellectual property as well, as it’s called nowadays, so anything to do with your online stuff, and smartphones and computers, try organizing and getting rid of old files, this will help you tremendously.

REVISIT: If there’s any friends or family that you haven’t contacted in a long time for whatever reason, now is the time to make amends and open your heart up to healing. Working on these relationships can help heal old emotional wounds, which is beneficial to your spiritual evolution. Catch up with old friends, go have coffee or meet up for dinner. Just make sure the people you choose to revisit are not dysfunctional or abusive, as that seems to be a reoccurring theme during Mercury in Rx, to help remind you of how you felt in some way so you can heal it.

SELF-CARE: It’s important to take care of yourself during this cycle, so working on self-care can be very helpful. Take it easy and make sure to eat right, exercise and move around more. Spend less time being plugged into the net or social media if at all possible. Start some sort of new routine that benefits you and your well-being.

CHANGE THE ENERGY: It’s time to change the energies up in your life! This is a time to clear space and energy, so add some nice candles to your home to help burn off old energies and invite new energy in. Put some color in your home or office and redecorate with pictures that make you feel good. Add fresh flowers and burn some incense. Bless and release the old energy that’s been in your home or office, and bring in a higher vibrational energy. There are many different ways to go about this. Just try it, and get creative and you’ll see and feel the difference.

BE FLEXIBLE: This is very important, so I am going to repeat it again, allow the energies to flow around you and stop trying to control everything!! Perhaps write a letter and let the Universe know what you’re trying to create in your life, and then sit back and relax. Just follow what feels natural and don’t fight, argue, or push others even if you feel totally frustrated.

REINVENT: Take some time to think about your past successes and bring new light to them, enjoy what you have created in your life, instead of trying to constantly manifest something new and different. Make sure to reuse what’s in your home and repurpose whatever you can, perhaps some DIY projects should be on the agenda during this period.

REWORK AND REDO: Work on any projects that you have already started and never finished. Work on anything you feel passionate about, but this time finish them to completion and enjoy the work you are doing. If there’s something you just couldn’t get done or finish, now is the time to redo it and fix it! Mercury in Rx cycles really does help us finish up old business.

ORGANIZE: Do you have 3000 pics on your phone or computer just hanging around? Well, this is a great time to organize your life. I like to organize my emails, pictures, and just anything on my computer and smartphones during Mercury in Rx. Take the time to organize your world in any way possible. Use this energy to make something creative perhaps as well.

REMEMBER: Connect to your past in some way, watch old videos of your family, wedding, or any memorable life event that was a happy memory. Check out old high school pictures of friends and family, and just simply reflect and reminisce about the old days. Fill your heart up with memories and simply feel gratitude for the time you had with them. Connecting to positive energies will help you feel good, and can help you move forward in your life once Mercury in Rx is back to its normal place.

If this is a confusing time for you and you need more guidance about how to handle Mercury in Rx, please get with me about a Reading session, and we can make a time to chat about how this particular Mercury in Rx cycle seems to be affecting your life, and together we can make a plan of action to help you get through it and do something more creative. It’s better than hiding under your desk or laying in bed thinking the sky is falling, right?

Good luck and just know this happens every year since you have been born you have lived through these cycles year after year, so more then likely you will get through it, but just know you have support out there if you need it.
