Saturn Retrograde

Saturn Goes Retrograde A Wake-Up Call!



Saturn Goes Retrograde
April 29 – Sept 18
By Rubys Readings


Nowadays, it’s become common knowledge to understand what Mercury in Retrograde is all about, but what you might not know is all the planets have a Retrograde cycle, which is when the planets appear to be moving backward in the sky! And these Cosmic shifts do cause significant changes and effects on all of us if we are aware of it or not! Saturn in Retrograde is considered to be a very powerful energy and marks a turning point in our lives. 

Starting April 29 the ringed-planet Saturn starts its five-month-long trip in its Retrograde cycle, through Sept 18.  This astrological event occurs just over every twelve months, lasting for nearly 4 and 1/2 months. Saturn Retrograde is not rare and lots of folks are born under one as well. This is a time of restrictions, blocks, limitations, and some anxiety and fear. The skills we learn during this Retrograde phase will prove essential to our growth for the long-term. In the coming days, you may feel off, weighed down, and disoriented, as once again our perspective shifts. But this is how we are affected by Retrograde planets at first anyway, at least until we have a chance to adjust to the shift in energy. 

Often it’s the very beginning and the end of these cycles (or commonly called Shadow Periods) that are the toughest or most challenging time. Just remember Retrograde cycles are always about perspective, so as these planets appear to be moving backward through the Cosmos, we too can feel like we’re going backward in our own lives, but it is a time to at least slow-down! 

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

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

Over the next week, during the beginning of Saturn’s Retro phase, as it turns completely Retrograde, we may begin to feel the weight of it in certain situations quite heavily, especially around our responsibilities. Many of you will actually let go of certain commitments including relationships, jobs, or business deals, which can leave you wondering why you even bothered with them in the first place. We may feel somewhat disconnected and lose our motivation. It might be difficult to make important decisions during these influences, as our energy levels can be low. All of this is due to a change in perspective. We will learn how to find our footing and regain some sort of balance into next week, (into the first week of May), as we grow more accustomed to these shifts. Then we can turn Saturn’s Retrograde cycle into an opportunity, which is the most powerful way to see any Retrograde planet! Make this a time to go over and review your responsibilities, so you can figure out what’s working and what’s not. Take on any challenges you are dealing with and face your reality with gumption and make things happen, Saturn always rewards us for our hard work by the way. 

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

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

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

Saturn’s lessons for all of us during its Retro phase is to take on certain responsibilities that we have already been developing or that are more important in our lives, so extra time is needed to take stock and to make sure everything is in order before we can continue. Saturn will present us with challenges and tests to make sure we are ready to take on these extra, but necessary responsibilities. The lessons we learn and that are taught by the Teacher of the Zodiac, Saturn, are often rough but they are valuable, and we are always rewarded by Saturn for our hard work and a job well done!

The shadow side to Saturn’s Retrograde is you may become sad or depressed, and not speak up for yourself, or act overly shy. If these behaviors get out of control during this time, then you’ll be offered a chance to recognize and admit you’ve got a problem. If this goes too far you can end up needed some help, so you can come out of your depression or isolation. Make sure and talk to someone if you start to feel down or too depressed, no matter what the planets are doing, there is always someone ready to listen and care more than you believe. 

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

April Astrology Forecast

April is a busy month, so get ready folks, with Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto all going into Retrograde phases this month, it’s a time for reassessment around what you are doing in your life. And with four planets in magical Pisces, the focus is more on imagination and illumination than practical matters. This period is wonderful for creativity and spiritual exploration but it’s best to wait until at least April 5th before making decisions that require focus, or a the very least some careful thought and consideration.

Since our plans and projects will be under such an intense review throughout the month of April we must make sure an align our goals with our life’s purpose. It’s also a good time to stop any activities that just are simply holding you back, or aren’t serving you. Quit wasting valuable time and energy. If you take the time to review your goals and plans this month than you’ll probably see progress in the fall when things really take off again. But for now, you have some lessons to get through and hopefully learn from.


April 2nd – Creative Confusion 

Mercury just recently out of its Retrograde cycle (but still in the after Rx Shadow phase through the 16th) makes a powerful connection to Neptune the king of dreams and escape. Mercury rules our mind and how we think, communicate, and perceive information. Neptune rules over things like our imagination, spirituality, and deceptions. This influence can inspire you and others, so you may feel highly creative. This also can help you communicate your dreams to the person you adore. 

But it’s also causing confusion with mental Mercury just in the after-Shadow period of Retrograde, also in Pisces, as well as Neptune. All in all, this energy can make things unclear and foggy. If something sounds too good to be true it probably is. Don’t get ripped off or scammed, deception is in the air right now. Find ways to be inspired, get creative and this fog will finally be lifting for good in a few days.


April 4th – Power Moves 

Powerful Pluto makes an intense connection to the Lunar South Node point both in the sign of Capricorn. Some folks could try to make bold moves to gain power or control during this time. So there may be some pretty wild upheavals. There can be ego battles that can be destructive in one way or another. If you force issues on others without taking responsibility for your own actions it can backfire on you. This is not a good time to just go after things on a whim without seriously taking consideration your consequences. Take some time to evaluate your goals and make plans for your next move, so you can get what it is you really want, but just make sure to not bump heads along the way, or it will only cause you more problems. 


April 5th – New Moon in Aries – New Beginnings

There’s a New Moon in the sign of Aries occurring and whatever you’ve been planning or working on can finally start to get moving. This energy gives us a chance to breathe new life into already existing projects. This is all about “New Beginnings” in a big bold way! As the first sign of the Zodiac, Aries is all about courage, and it gives us a huge dose of higher confidence and energy to take on our tasks, projects, and goals and make things happen! The Pluto-South Node alignment is also occurring around the same time frame, so this can help us to be more practical, even if we are more daring with new and innovative ideas.  If you already know enough to make an informed decision, it’s important to not be indecisive. Try to be patient and look for more information around the next Full Moon on April 19 that will help you know what to do next. 


April 10 – A Reality Check 

The Sun is making a tense Square formation with taskmaster Saturn. It’s important to know what responsibilities you want to take on and what you don’t, it’s a good time for some assessment of your life. as you will be challenged to rid of the things that you are doing too much of or that might be taking up to much of your time and energy. It’s no longer “go big or go home,” instead your mantra for this time should be, “go small or give in! Create balance around what you want and that is for the greater good of everyone. 


April 10 – Take a Step Back 

Giant Jupiter is going to be making its yearly backward trip as it enters its Retrograde cycle for nearly four months.  Making progress will come to a halt as this cosmic turnaround tends to slow us down. This is a cycle of reflection into what gives your life deeper meaning, and what helps you feel more abundant. This isn’t typically a time of difficulty, but when Jupiter gets ready to turn Retrograde it can seriously slow us down as it’s an influence is more intense feeling. This actually can cause you to feel a sense of urgency and desire to find something more expansive in your life and to get rid of the things that are restricting you, holding you back, or that are keeping you from feeling happy or satisfied. 
Every now and then the Universe has a way of making us take a time out to review our lives, to make sure that our plans and projects are still what we want and need. Through August 11th is a time for cutbacks on the activities that don’t help you reach your goals, and to rid of any distractions that waste your time, energy, and money! Don’t worry about the projects that slowly go to the waste side, as they were a waste of your time anyway, During this cycle whatever plans don’t make the cut will turn out to probably be a blessing in disguise. Once Jupiter is direct, whatever plans or projects you have been working on will start to come together. You got a long time to sort it all out. If you happen to know your Astrology Birth Chart, you can look up just exactly what part of your chart this cycle is cruising through to get more information. 


April 13 – Power Moves 

The Sun is making a tense Square to potent Pluto! With the Sun’s transit through the sign of Aries, most of us are trying to initiate something, but we might have to deal with some powerful energies for a few days. Perhaps a person who has their own agenda or situation might ask you to change something up that throws your original plans out the window! It’s a time to be paying close attention and for being more mindful of other folks needs, besides your own. You can’t always take and take from others and expect something if you are not giving anything back in return. You can also be challenged in some way to make sure you are empowering yourself. Don’t be stubborn and don’t give everything away either. You will know when the time comes what you need to do if you pay attention to your signs and messages from the Universe during this powerful few days. 


April 17 – Quick Thinking 

The planet of communication Mercury will enter into bolder, enterprising Aries that brings amazing new insights and flashes of genius. This can help us take any plans or projects we might have new directions. Just make sure these directions are on a path towards your life’s purpose in some way and not a huge detour. Take this time to connect with other folks who help stimulate your thinking and who are encouraging, as this cycle can help you rid of old behaviors and habits for a better future. Also, keep in mind that Aries is known for being the God of War. It’s not a time to be debating or arguing or you can get caught up in all the negative drama and those great ideas won’t get moving forward. Instead, direct your energy towards achieving goals so you can take full advantage of this transits that will run through May 6th.


April 19 – Full Moon in Libra – Balancing the Chaos

When the Sun in Aries makes a tense but exciting connection to the Moon in Libra a Full Moon will occur. We are just coming out of the New Moon cycle at this point that started on April 5th. This Full Moon cycle is at what’s called the critical degree or anaretic degree, this means completion and marks the end of one cycle and the evolution into another. This Full Moon in Libra, the sign of balance and integration, encourages us to find ways to leave behind anything that is standing in our way of finding balance. Something might have to come to an end in order for us to find peace and harmony. This is also a time of culmination as you get a chance to take a step back and see if you are doing right by others and if you are paying attention to the folks in your life and their needs and desires. It’s all about being fair as our sense of justice is stronger than usual, put your focus on strengthening the bonds in your current relationships. Even though the Full Moon is always a time of endings, it is a time to work on releasing the energies that no longer are working for you. But this will be a social Full Moon time, so it’s a great energy to have a party under or to spend some time with a close BFF, and since Libra is about relationships maybe have a romantic dinner with the object of your affection.


April 20 – Sun enters Taurus

This Sun cycle is a time when we simply slow down, but we are also more determined, patient, and stubborn. The energy of the sign of Taurus is more practical, grounded, and stable. This is a great help with so many other cosmic connections during this time speeding things up, we can take a time out and look more closely at events unfolding around us or any complicated situations we are involved in with some common sense. This transit highlights things that are pleasing, beautiful, and attractive. This will be a month of relying on what’s always worked in the past but also moving forward with the times, it’s about integrating tradition with evolution in our lives. You will want to be more comfortable during this time as well, so set up camp for the next month to make sure you have a safe and cozy place to hang out while the Sun is in Taurus. Our senses are aroused and highly activated, so we enjoy more so, whatever pleases the senses, with things like food, music, entertainment, and sexual activities, (especially with Mars in the sign of Gemini as well, bow-chicka-bow-wow) we can have an incredibly sexy month. This cycle runs through May 21st.


April 20 – Blazing Love

The Goddess of love, Venus is moving into the first sign of the Zodiac, Aries, this brings fresh new energy into your love life and around your finances. This cycle brings love on rather quickly, relationships both new and old are more direct and spontaneous. Under this fiery influence, we tend to hunt each other down in matters of the heart, as we are more bold, courageous, aggressive, and impatient. Even though we can much more direct than usual with the folks we love and care for, some of you might be more reserved about your deeper emotions, and if you are feeling insecure you can get kind of aggressive or mean, especially if someone isn’t validating or expressing love back. This can cause some folks to be more sneaky and strategic when it comes to matters of the heart or anything involving money. Under the Venus in Aries influence we don’t look back to the past, it is a time to move forward. Each day is looked at as new and full of opportunities, so each moment matters more. We are not interested in anything mushy or things like apologies, we simply enjoy the chase and conquest. Relationships that are more long-term can use this fiery energy to reignite their passions, and if single love that is initiated now can sizzle out fast. Make sure and keep things moving forward if you want a new commitment around love or money, but also pay attention to what will happen in the long-term unless you are just looking for a hookup! This will run through May 15th. 


April 22 – Exciting Journeys 

A new exciting journey begins with the Sun making a connection called a “conjunction” to more unpredictable Uranus! This can be a liberating experience as we move forward from old habits and ways of thinking, especially about ourselves. Staying positive is key to being successful under this cycle, as it may not be as stable as some would like, but good things can happen. It’s a time to put your past behind you where it belongs, and keep an open mind about other people and embrace new thoughts and ideas. Most of all stay true to yourself and honor other people’s desire to express who they are and their own unique qualities. 


April 24 – Power Plays – Pluto Retrograde

Powerful Pluto challenges us on how we use and gain personal power, when Pluto goes backward or Retrograde. How do you deal with power and control? Some folks can’t simply get enough of power, and others are nervous when they have more, and then there are a few folks who refuse to take control of anything in their lives when they should. When Pluto goes Retrograde, it brings about power struggles around well, power, people rise and fall from power during this time, as there are lots of plays for power made. This is a good time to do some soul searching around your own personal relationship with power. What are your goals? What do you want to achieve in life? Do you feel like you have power over someone else and their life or is someone making the decisions for you? This can affect any part of our lives, but for the next several months we will be figuring out to how to move forward in ways that make us happy, just be careful about who’s toes you step on or how many folks you use your power over to get there! Remember Karmic balance always comes into play with these sort of things and if you abuse or just use folks to get what you want, it will eventually catch up with you in one way or another. Pluto will be in its Retrograde cycle until October 3rd.


Saturn Retrograde

April 29 – Saturn goes Retrograde – Taking Responsibility

Saturn the planet of rules and boundaries goes into its yearly Retrograde phase. This is a time when we must review our lives and make sure what we going after is exactly what we still want. This Retro period lasts through September 18th. During this Retro cycle, we are taken back over territory that we probably have already been through at one point. Saturn is about taking our responsibilities, rules, and boundaries more seriously. So there are going to be areas of your life that are important to go back over and review, to see what you can do to make these situations more secure. This can be a frustrating time, so we have to face possible limitations, barriers, or working on ending habits that aren’t so good for our future long-term success. 


April 30 – Saturn in Retrograde gets a boost!

To further enhance Saturn in Retrogrades energies, Saturn is in a conjunction with the Lunar South Node point. You may want to think about what you are being responsible for? Are you taking other folks burdens on or taking care of other people’s obligations? Do you think you should be the one in charge and are telling everyone else what you think they should be doing? Are you taking the steps to fix things when something comes up or are you enabling bad behavior? During this cycle, it’s time to go over your responsibilities and let go of old habits, old learned behaviors, and ways of thinking around who’s in charge and why!

ASTRO NEWS

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Look Ahead Forecast – Special Edition
by Ruby
 

This coming Week will be a very busy time for the Cosmos! On August 26, loving Venus moves into bolder Leo. So all you Leo Sun or Rising Signs can really shine for the next three weeks in this energy, get out there and take some selfies. But for everyone else it can be a great time to make deals or do some bargain shopping, just hold off on the big purchases until after Sept. 5th when Mercury comes out of Retrograde. This energy can make for strong romantic attractions, but also for overly aggressive love, so take it easy! This is a lucky time for most of us generally speaking as Venus will stay in Leo through Sept 20th. Enjoy!

Also, Saturn has gone directly now folks and remains in the sign of Sagittarius, so life finally starts moving again. This energy will help all of us start moving forward again in some specific area of our life. Something will come back around and you will feel it! The forward movement of Saturn brings about beginnings and onto very important journeys, so whatever path we end up on can be with the right people and in the right places.

Saturn is our COSMIC TEACHER!

He helps guide us towards our destiny. Saturn remains in Sagittarius for another four months, but the last few months of any Saturn aspect can feel harsh. Especially, if we haven’t done what we are supposed to be doing and learned our lessons. Maturity is always an issue with this planet. If you start to feel like life isn’t going in the direction it should be and you are having constant blocks or restrictions pop up, then there is something you need to learn or change. Take some time to figure out your life and the paths you are on. The answers aren’t that cryptic or that difficult to see, it’s right in front of you! Once you have accepted and learned what it is you should be doing in some way, you will be rewarded when Saturn moves into the sign it rules Capricorn by the New Year.

On the 27th, Jupiter makes a nice connection to Saturn in Sagittarius

This is one of the rarest and best Astrological Aspects left this year!

Jupiter makes a rare, yet strong connection to the great Cosmic Teacher, Saturn, and this hasn’t happened in 13 yrs and won’t happen again for 6 more. These two heavy hitting planets working together can equal success for you and make things a little easier. Do something proactive in regards to a personal or professional goal. This weekend can be the perfect time to make something big happen!

Things get moving and life changes rather quickly for so many of you now, as we start to notice many of these changes are for the better, finally! Some of you have already started to release parts of yourself that just don’t work or serve you anymore, and other people are opening their eyes and seeing the roles they took on the last decade (at one point), just don’t match up with who they really are anymore. Karma is getting broken, so it’s time to stop doing something you took on over the past twelve years because you aren’t that person now, and if something you are doing just feels off or if you don’t feel it in your soul, cut your losses and let it go!

The rest of this year can be a Wake-Up Call! The Cosmos has been showing us just who we truly are and what parts of our life don’t’ make sense. Over the next few weeks, we will get even more clear because we can feel it in our soul! You can do something with this newfound clarity, especially now that the Sun has moved into more detailed Virgo this week. Virgo energy affects all of us, no matter your Sign, and pushes us to do something different that aligns more with who we truly are and our authentic-self, so we can live our lives in our truth and in the way we are meant to. It can take some time to process all this information, so go ahead and take some time to reflect on this and really think about your life now and what you want to break free from and change. The answers you seek are coming soon and they can change your life.

Over the last few weeks, you might have realized something about yourself or your life that you just don’t like and now over the coming weeks all this Virgo energy can help you create some changes that you want to make. This can be quite a powerful month indeed, for many different reasons. But here’s the thing you have to stay away from the more negative toxic people and situations, so if you cause trouble and frustrate people to the point of arguing, you will more than likely end being left alone and made to feel very isolated. So work on this and stop yourself, it’s not a good time to cause friction with others, it can cut you off from the ones who can actually help you down the road. We are supposed to take this time to work together and create positive changes now!

Over the next month or so the energies will be more aligned with what brings about peace, harmony, and finding balance. If you can achieve that, you can be very successful in whatever you set out to do. However, this can be a tricky time, so we can easily get tripped up and start fights fairly quickly. The bottom line is if you want to be successful than stay positive with other people. The way the planets are forming now is very unique, and folks who are negative, argumentative, or who have ill intentions might be forced to leave or change. This rather strange energy will start coming together soon, and it can be very positive for those of us who don’t choose to get caught up in negativity. These planetary influences are going to really raise our vibrations and will kick out the negative people, by making them feel like they can’t stay in situations or relationships. They will have to work on raising their vibrational energy, by acting kind or simply leave.

Relationships are going to go through a huge shift! Breakups will be inevitable and many bad relationships will end, and some even divorce. The Universe is bringing us New Beginnings and more positive energies will start to come back in our lives. It is the time to leave that bad job or a negative situation and move on towards what you really need or want. It’s a good time to start releasing what you can’t control over to the Universe and surrender your problems to them. Allow this energy to help you! As good deed and positive acts will bring about some pretty good rewards. Focus on what it is you need to release and allow the Universe to bring you more peace and miracles now, so you can get through the more tough or challenging times that may arise.

On September 5th Mercury will finally come out of Retrograde and move forward again, and then a Full Moon in Pisces will occur on the 6th, and you can feel pushed to move forward with your life. Between September 6th and the 21st is a major turning point in our lives. The best way to work through this time is to detach yourself from negative situations, attitudes, and people, or anyone you might have been around for a long time who is toxic, stop wasting your time with these folks. These situations can be very draining and they don’t support or promote your growth or happiness. But once you do some releasing work, you will free up some space for the better more positive energies and people to come into your life.

The recent Eclipses were very strong, and the energies have shifted and we are feeling these effects deep inside ourselves, something is starting to stir up within you, because you want to get ahead and move forward in some way, well that time is now! In the month ahead, the energies can actually assist you, so if you would like to know more in this moment about how the Cosmos is going to be affecting you personally, get with me for a “Mini Astro Report”. Just ask me for a “September Astro Report”, and I will do the research needed to send you a detailed report with all your upcoming Astrology info., based on your own personal Birth Chart, this hopefully will help you get through these influences better and move towards something more positive and fulfilling.

“Saturn Direct”- A Wake-Up Call

Friday, August 25th
“Saturn Direct”- A Wake-Up Call

For all the Signs of the Zodiac!!
The Universe is sending out some pretty strong messages right now, and they’re all about taking care of your responsibilities, so get your head out of the clouds and set those goals you have back down to planet Earth now. Because things are about to shift soon with structured Saturn the great cosmic teacher of the Zodiac, finally coming out of Retrograde (backward) today.

Saturn represents our structures, commitments, and responsibilities, and the ability to do life on your own terms!

Saturn has been stuck in Retro since April the 6th, this influence has been strong around what you are committed to and your responsibilities. For some folks, things got almost easier during this time in some ways, because you didn’t get such strong reminders that you had to take care of your business right away, but you knew the time was coming, as I am sure many of you could feel it, and that’s all about to change and a Wake-Up Call is coming folks!

It’s important to be flexible and open-minded through this weekend as you get adjusted to this change or shift. Your focus should be on your responsibilities and limitations. In the coming weeks ahead, your long-term goals and plans will seem more clear. Look for clarity and find ways to simplify your life now, and perhaps get a Reading with me to know more about what part of your life you should be focusing on.

As Saturn slowly gets back on track, it’s really important to be more committed and mature around what it is you believe to be true of yourself and others. This will help you ease into this energy and feel more grounded in reality. Don’t close yourself off from the opportunities that are about to show up, so in other words don’t get stuck in your routines.

Over these last 5 months with Saturn in Retro and in the sign of Sagittarius, you had some time to really think about your limits and where your own personal boundaries should be. This was a chance to see just what part of your life needs to change or where you need to start new commitments. Work now on taking back your personal power and be more realistic about just what areas of your life you are responsible for. It’s time to move forward now, as any progress you start to make will reflect the work you did and thought of during Saturn’s Retro phase, so since April 6th. Which means any spiritual or inner-work you’ve done will now also start to show up in your physical reality!

It may feel like the things you’re trying to do here in this physical reality aren’t moving forward and are stuck, but just take a deep breath as many times as you need to, because very soon things will be changing. Moving forward with your long-term goals will start to be easier as Saturn gets back into its normal cycle again, and you will be more clear about things. Take what you have learned over the last 5 months and take any commitments or goals you’ve made for yourself and bring them to life now!

After Eclispe Season

August 2017
“After Eclipse Season” 

Well, here we are finally folks, a few days after the “Great American Solar Eclipse!” That really got intense, right? And I’ve already written so much about it in this last week, that I have decided to move on to something else for now, but if you are still interested in reading about how the Eclipse energy is affecting you, please head over to my Notes Page on Facebook or my WordPress Website at rubysreadings and learn just how this energy will be with us for days, weeks, and possibly even months to come.

Let’s chat about the other Cosmic Connections coming together this week, they are quite potent and can affect our life’s journey and destiny.

Saturn the “Lord of Karma” turns direct and out of its 5 months long Retrograde phase on August 25th. This energy has not been helping matters much, as it has weighed us down for so long now, and probably added to the heavy energy that came with that Solar Eclipse on Monday.

Now that Saturn is coming out of Retrograde we need to be paying attention to what signs and messages the Universe is sending because they are trying to tell us it is time now to move forward in some way. So how will that apply to your life?

Saturn rules over how we choose to take on our responsibilities, work, destiny, and Karma! So if you’ve been feeling stuck, tested, or challenged in any certain area of your life, it’s probably due to Saturn being Retrograde since April 6th, 2017, as it has really been holding us back. And with Saturn’s forward movement, it’s time for some big rewards to show up for all our hard work and past challenges. You might have had some serious frustrations, but this energy will give you the boost you really need.

This energy is going to cause some major shifts in energy that can snow something finally go your way, and with Saturn turning directly this coming week, the Cosmos is going to help us focus again to move forward.

To learn what area of your life will get this huge boost of energy and just what part of your life you can be most effective, order a “One Question Reading” with me, and ask me How’s my Saturn Helping Me? (this is a purchase and a service, so it is NOT free)

On August 24th there some good energy that helps us release any pent-up energy you have been holding on to. So make sure to mark your calendars for Thursday, to do some serious energy work! This is the right time to work on clearing energy and cleansing yourself. If you have learned how to do any kind of energy work this is the time to use those techniques because they can be quite effective.

On August 25th, the Sun will make a nice trine to Juno, the Goddess of Marriage or Partnerships. For those of you who have been suffering from any kind of relationship problems, (and I know many of you who have), this can be the shift you so desperately need. If you have been having a hard time in your current relationship, this aspect can help you renew your commitments and make some serious positive changes.

This can start as early as the 24th, and on the 27th when Mercury also trines Juno, it will be a good day to have that serious one on one conversation about how to fix or make your relationship work again. If you have recently broken it off with someone, this also can be a good time to work on getting back together again, if that’s what you really want.

On August 27th there’s a rare amazing energy coming together, it’s one of the most awesome Astrological aspects we get to experience this year. A strong harmonious connection between optimistic Jupiter and structured Saturn. It’s been nearly 13 yrs since these two have met in this beautiful way, and it won’t happen again for another 6 yrs! When these two heavy hitting planets come together in harmony we can see much success. Do something that is proactive in regards to your personal and professional goals. This is the perfect time to make something big happen!

Retrograde Brigade

Rubys Astro Reading
Thurs 6th

“Retrograde Brigade”

Feeling sad, dragged down, exhausted, or depressed lately?
Well, it’s probably due to all the Planets headed into Retrograde currently!

Somber Saturn is about to join Venus and Jupiter, and soon enough MERCURY who is going Retrograde, and will continue to travel through what appears to backward motion until August 25th.

Saturn’s station can sort of cast a fog over us and we may be feeling quite heavy, sad, depressed, and somber over this next week, as we learn how to adapt to its energies. Mistakes and errors are going to be made, but just until we get used to these shifts,

especially with mental Mercury ruling over our thought processes and also going Retrograde on the 9th! Talk about being slowed down on more than one level.

We may become obsessed with reviewing our life and tend to question our commitments and responsibilities under Saturn in Retrograde, instead of just dealing with these things right away. And with Mercury not only being in Retrograde but also in slowed down Taurus, this really slows our thinking way down even more, hence this is part of the dragged down energy you’re feeling along with Saturn’s heaviness. For the next month or so we may end up taking much more time to get simple tasks done or organized, it can seem like we may never reach the end of whatever it is we have to do, and waiting on others is already proven to be extremely agonizing in this Retrograde energy.

This line up of planets that are joining together in the “Retrograde Brigade” is giving us the chance to learn the art of patience right off the bat!

Many of you have already changed some of your life priorities over these last few months, and you may have chosen to let go of old projects and start something new, and by doing so you may have become more clear about what you don’t want to be responsible for anymore. Now it’s time to face the music folks, and review some of the decisions you made to just make sure your goals are still in alignment with your beliefs and values over the next 5 months.

With all this Retrograde energy coming in now, we can have unusual feelings of guilt, shame, and self-doubt wash over us, as we more internalize our fears and shortcomings, but this also is an opportunity to sit back and review our lives and our goals, so we know which paths we are already on, and where we should be heading. We have a chance to reassess our commitments and what it is we really should be doing to meet success. Take your time with this important cycle that lasts all the way through August 25.

Later this evening, the Moon will meet up with Saturn in a nice trine, and this will help us to be more resourceful and keep our wits about us, as we are able to see what responsibilities we should be tending to. Common sense takes hold and we are more cautious and responsible under this influence. If other folks are freaking out about something we can keep calm and glide through adversity! We also can be more orderly, disciplined, and grounded, but we may not understand those who don’t have their shit together! Ha! So we can appear cold or cut off to those folks.

Saturn Retrograde – 2017

Rubys Astro Readings
Saturn Retrograde
by Ruby
The Karmic teacher of the zodiac, Saturn, will turn Retrograde on April 6th and continue moving backward until August 25th.
Saturn’s slowdown gives us a moment to adjust and fine tune certain parts of our lives so we can make sure the structures we hold dear are solid and in place, so we can grow and evolve. This is a good time to put your life in order, and remember whatever feels like hard work now can create rewards by August.
It’s important to learn just how these planets when in Retrograde, or in other words appear to move backward affect us. With Saturn in Retrograde, we tend to not pay attention to the details or clearly assess a situation so we can end up jumping without knowing all the information. Saying yes more easily to people and end up taking on responsibilities and commitments that aren’t in our highest good. But being forewarned is forearmed as they say, so hopefully, this blog will help you remember that over the next few months you must draw clear boundaries with other folks and learn to say NO! But hey we are only human and if you do end up making a commitment you just can’t keep, it will also be easier to back out at least through the end of August once Saturn moves forward again. So if you make a promise to someone and feel it is a mistake or no longer want the obligation, you do get the cane to back out.
This also leads to people feeling more scattered, and they might back out of engagements and business deals, or whatever really it could be anything that was agreed upon. Just know people might change their minds more under this Saturn influence. Common sense will tell ya that this is not a good time to make any new long-term commitments, new obligations, or promises. This means only deal with past issues or ones that haven’t been taken care of as of yet but don’t take on anything brand-new if at all possible. Saturn Retrograde gives us the opportunity to also change up some stuff like prior negotiations or commitments that may have been nothing but a big old pain in the butt, or it just didn’t work out for you, but if you don’t change this during this cycle it can become an even bigger pain down the road.
This Saturn in Retrograde cycle is affecting all of us, so don’t be all upset or surprised if someone tells you No!
The cosmos is really slowing things down now, and certain areas of your life will be affected by Saturn’s Retrograde cycle, this gives you the chance to review plans and put together some new strategies that can help you improve and advance your life.
Saturn is known as the wise old teacher of the Zodiac and is one of the best teachers, he presents us with certain challenges and tests, but if we pass or even at least try, we will be rewarded for our efforts.
This influence is about taking care of our responsibilities, following the rules, and our limitations in this life. Saturn also rules over our career or professional life. So depending on just where Saturn is falling in your own personal “Astrology Birth Chart”, will depict what part of your life to pay extra close attention to over the next 5 months. Because Saturn is all about stability and structure, it doesn’t like it’s Retrograde cycle so much, and you can feel more worried and insecure during this time, which makes it more difficult to make good decisions. Remember wherever you are feeling the most uncomfortable, frustrated, overwhelmed, or perhaps shaken up is exactly the part of your life you need to be paying attention to and working on.
And then we are so easily taken over by others who appear stronger or more persuasive under this influence, and with Mercury the planet that rules our mind in Retrograde as well, you can become a big sucker and not be able to say NO! Don’t allow this to take you over, be clear with yourself and continue to work on setting boundaries with folks now more than ever. And no matter how uncomfortable it may be learn to say know when to say NO!
If you would like to learn just what area of your life Saturn will be affecting during its Retrograde cycle so that you can review and restructure that part of your life. You can order an “ONE QUESTION READING” from me and ask me how is Saturn Retrogrades cycle going to affect me? I will do the research and send you a mini report based on your own personal Astrology Chart to your email. Just message me on Facebook or email me at healingruby@yahoo.com
(May take up to 24hrs to receive your report)
