Setting Intentions with the New Moon Revised!

Standard

 

“Setting Intentions with the NEW MOON”

There’s a New Moon on Tues, June 13th, which makes this the best time of the Lunar Month to set some powerful intentions. These Wish Lists can be about your future goals. Learning how to work with the cycles of the Moon can be a life-changing experience.

*Setting Intentions*

During a New Moon cycle, we should be asking the Universe for new beginnings, by planting seeds of intention from our heart and getting in touch with our higher-self. It’s a good time to be grateful for what we have and work on manifesting what energy we want to come into our lives next.  We can create whatever it is we desire, such as a better life, more money, happiness, love. It really doesn’t matter, but we have to do something physical and spiritual together to make it really happen and stick! And no not everything you want is going to just magically appear. But you will more than likely get put on the path towards your wishes, even if you don’t realize it and that sometimes take time, but it’s nice to know at least we are headed in the right direction.

Sometimes when you Set Intentions with the New Moon energy amazing things happen and you get what you want very quickly!

At least by “Setting Intentions” with the energy of the New Moon, you’ve made it clear to the Universe what path you’d like to begin heading down and that’s a start. Then the energies will begin to line up to get you there, and if you continue to stay persistent and connected, and keep doing this work it truly can change your life circumstances for the better. I am like those old commercials, I don’t just talk about it, I have lived it! LOL

The intentions that are set during a New Moon will set you on the right path towards your desires. The New Moon is a magical time of beginnings when you can recharge goals and set new ones. During the New Moon, we often experience some major “energy shift.

Here are some ideas on just how to Manifest under a New Moon:

1. Get clear about something you want and write it down.

2. Share your intention with someone in a supportive way, who will be encouraging.

3. Do something to demonstrate your commitment to your intention. Take even a small action around what it is your asking to create! Send an email, move something in your house, or make a phone call perhaps.

4. Acknowledge that you did what you said you would, and then take the next step.

So have a conversation with the Universe (meaning your higher power, God, Source Energy, higher-self, Guides, Angels, etc), and work with the New Moons energy to help illuminate the path that will lead you toward your deepest desires. Simply ask to be led to what you’re choosing to manifest. Remember to be patient and simply allow the time needed, things don’t always happen right away, as we can get taken down certain paths to find our way to what it is we’re looking for. And sometimes magic just happens, you just never know!

What if you don’t know how to “Set Intentions” under the New Moon?

Follow the Steps below to learn how:

Step One: Clear your sacred space

Clear the energy of the area or room you’re using to do New Moon work in. Think about where you are going to do this work because we create an energy vortex wherever we sit or sleep. This is mainly why you feel so good in your favorite chair, because it’s comfortable and feels safe and secure, but also because you have created an energy vortex in that spot.

You are simply calling in some positive energy to work with. Burn some sage or Incense and clear the energies, so say a blessing or a special prayer that helps you feel cleared and protected. Next, close your eyes and breathe deeply and call upon your guides, Angels, or higher power and ask to have your sacred space cleared, and then to fill up your special space you are working in with the energy of love and light. Never leave energy empty, always fill it with something once you’ve cleared it. Never leave a VOID when working with energy.

Step Two: Set the atmosphere

Set the mood for your New Moon Ritual and burn some special incense, light some candles (colors of candles do have different energies and meanings), and play some music that helps you feel spirituality connected. This can be a very different experience for everyone. Just makes sure to use whatever colors, music, and tools that make you feel calm, centered, happy, and peaceful.

Step Three: Setting Intentions

You’re going to need a notebook, paper, or a journal and something to write with.

Now write what energy you’d like the Universe to bring in. Simply write your deepest desires, wishes, and questions. Think about what energy you’re trying to manifest or create. Write a letter, like as if you are talking to an old friend. Think about what energy you’re trying to bring into your life and be detailed about what you want to see happen and bring in both.

As you’re doing this work and setting your intentions, here are some helpful questions you can think about. For example; ask for what you’re choosing or what changes you would like to see in your life? What are you or should you be calling in? How do you feel about what is happening in your life now, and what do you want to change and create? Think about your long-term goals and future. Be careful about focusing on the how, why, and when of your goals, focus more on what it is you are choosing and how you want to feel. Only see the ultimate end result and getting what it is you are choosing, in your mind’s eye, don’t focus on how you get it, or the hurdles you have to jump, or sacrifices you may have to make, allow the Universe to shoulder the burden once you have requested what you want and let them take care of the rest.

Step Four: Visualize

It’s time to visualize what you’ve written. Close your eyes and take long deep breaths, in your nose and out your mouth. See the energy of your heart center, that’s in the middle of your chest, not over your pumping heart, but your spiritual heart or commonly referred to as the “Heart Chakra.” Visualize yourself in what you’re actually trying to create or manifest. For example: see yourself living in that new home, falling in love with that Soul-Mate, driving that new car. Just don’t think it, make sure and FEEL IT as if you were really experiencing what you’re visualizing!

Allow the Universe to show you which paths to follow over the next 30 days, and look for any signs or symbols that will help you along your journey so you may bring in what you truly desire and let go of what you don’t want! Don’t forget to show gratitude in some way and tell the Universe thank you in advance.

You also might gain some clarity around something or someone that is not serving your higher good and could be blocking you from your desires. So, in other words, pay attention after you’re done doing this work.

Have a blessed New Moon. And good luck.

St Patrick’s Day New Moon

Standard

March NEW MOON
by Rubys Readings

The NEW MOON will occur early Saturday morning in the sign of Pisces. This energy affects each and every one of us in one way or another no matter what Zodiac Sign you are.

This NEW MOON gives us an opportunity to start something new and fresh, as it’s time to start new endeavors.

This is the time to follow the traits of the sign that the New Moon comes together in, and since this NEW MOON will be in the sign of the Fish, Pisces! Therefore we should be working on tolerance and judgment of others, and letting go of worry about people’s imperfections, that includes our own with ourselves.

Allow yourself to take a risk, but make sure it’s a thought out one, or maybe start something that requires you to use your imagination or visualization skills, and also be aware consciously of making time to enjoy spiritual activities that help you to zen out a bit and rejuvenate yourself. This is a great time to share your deep desires and dreams with someone you trust.

Under this very strong Pisces energy, we have the chance to make some pretty important changes to our lives, as we might feel inspired under this NEW MOON and feel motivated enough to take some major leaps of faith!

The NEW MOON this weekend is making a strong connection to wounded healer, CHIRON!

This can put us in touch with our souls potential to help us heal our greatest wounds! This energy is strong and quite potent, so if you’re doing anything spiritual or some kind of energy work it can be quite successful at this time. So you may just have a breakthrough this weekend, because this is a very potent time for changes. You might see things from a different perspective now, and this helps us move away from old learned behaviors and patterns that no longer serve us in our life. So set boundaries now, release old habits and more. Use this NEW MOON and CHIRON’S healing energy to help you make a big difference in your life.

Pay Attention Folks!!!

Even though this NEW MOON is a compassionate one, it’s also making a tense square to impatient MARS, and this affects all of us no matter what your Zodiac Sign may be!

We must check ourselves for feeling impatient, and for making sudden impulsive moves. It can get rowdy out there folks! People are also a tad bit confused about how they are feeling, especially around how they are thinking with mental MERCURY and VENUS both in MARS-ruled Aries!

MARS is on the Cusp of Changing Signs today also, so this mean we can feel extremely vulnerable, aggressive, and even volatile! So if you notice someone getting heated-up or frustrated it’s just for the best that you walk away and deal with them another time, or maybe not at all! Our words can cut like a knife, and people are feeling sensitive already, so they can offend each other much more easily. This all can cause us to make some major changes in our lives that help us start some sort of New Beginning!

The SUN and MOON are also forming a somewhat nice connection to thought provoking URANUS, this means we might struggle with our independence, but also may not be to sure about walking away from a commitment.

The MOON will be in Aries by 2 PM CST, 3 PM EDT time on Saturday, so again if you are one who wants to work with the energies of the MOON and SET INTENTIONS, your best bet is before these times. For those who are well seasoned at doing this kind of work, the MOON will technically go into the VOID on Saturday morning around 8 AM CST, and 9 AM EST times.

“Weekly” Astro Update

Standard

Rubys Astro Readings

Week of Jan 14
“Weekly Update”

The MOON remains in grounding Capricorn through Tuesday, which affects all of the ZODIAC SIGNS! It’s a good time to take it easy & wind down with the NEW MOON coming in tomorrow. Get things organized and wrapped up, finish projects and then you can work on starting brand new things Tuesday.

We’re under the influence of the SUN connecting to shocking URANUS already, this sucker is bringing on changes, shocks, and out of the ordinary situations, (Hawaii for example), it’s a very strong high energy that makes things just buzz. For now, start writing out those Intentions & Wish Lists for the NEW MOON Tuesday!

Tensions rise with loving VENUS and foggy NEPTUNE meeting now, and our way of thinking and perspective is more about seeing what we want and what will bring us instant gratification. We can miss important details and make mistakes during this time. Pay extra close attention to things! Not everything is as it seems.

Later, the planets of luck & opportunity and power & evolution, JUPITER & PLUTO make a powerful, beautiful connection. This is the first of 3 meetings in a series that will continue to meet back up through September. As this energy plays in the background of our lives we can feel more alive, confident, faithful, and insightful, especially during the times it comes exact, like this week, and then again in April & September. But whatever events or situations it kicks off in your life can be life-changing, as this is a make-it or break-it kind of energy, that brings in powerful opportunities & growth potential! Just remember often growth is painful, so don’t expect rainbows until after the rain!

The JUPITER/PLUTO connection can help you nurture your ambitions, so if you work extra hard you can experience major transformations in your life. There’s a strong pull for something with more deeper meaning and this motivates us to go after our personal & professional goals. It’s easy to manipulate others under this influence or persuade them into giving us what we want. But now is the time to take steps towards bettering ourselves and solving long-standing problems or go after something more aggressively that was hidden or ignored. This influences second meeting in April will be a fertile time to manifest the things we desire even more so.

With six planets now in grounding Capricorn, we can see the importance in focusing and concentration when we express ourselves, as we are on point! The energies are slowed down for now which gives us more time to get organized and get things done, however starting mid-week loving VENUS and the SUN will both shift into strong-minded and willed AQUARIUS. This really helps us get moving again and more focused on our future, as time will pick up and we will get very busy, so enjoy this slowed down energy for the next few days, it’s almost over.

Finally, some great news, all of the PLANETS are currently moving in a DIRECT MOTION! That means no RETROGRADE PLANETS! It’s go time folks, as this is the time to make things happen and take action, don’t sit back and wait or plan, that should have all been done the last half of 2017! You have through the second week of March when JUPITER changes the game and is the first PLANET to turn RETROGRADE once again! No Worries, keep reading my blogs and I will help keep you informed and remind you how to ride this wave once it comes, this is something you will want to pay attention to, however.

Positive New Moon Ahead

Standard

Astro News By Ruby
Positive New Moon Ahead

A harmonious NEW MOON comes together on December 18 & 19, and in the sign of adventurous Sagittarius, which makes it the best time for all of the signs of the Zodiac to reflect on what it is they truly want to let go of or release, and what they want to open up to and create space for. The New Moon is our gift from the Cosmos, so allow this harmonic energy to bring something special to you during this Holiday Season. Stay open to the possibilities.

The New Moon in Sagittarius is going to be smack in between the goddess of love, Venus, and Saturn the lord of Karma. Saturn is just about to shift into Capricorn from Sagittarius itself, and he won’t be back in Sagittarius for nearly 30 years! With Saturn, Venus, and Uranus all working together in harmony, we can expect this New Moon to create some seriously positive change within our relationships and around some of our financial situations.

Setting Intentions

I say it over and over again, the best time to set powerful intentions during a lunar month is at the time of the New Moon! This is the when the Sun and the Moon meet in their most harmonious union. Take some time to make out a wish list and set your powerful intentions, and if you’d like to know what this lovely New Moon symbolizes for you, then purchase a “New Moon Report” from me.

You can email, message, or even text me and ask me, “How will the New Moon benefit me? healingruby@yahoo.com

New Lessons Are Coming!

We can look at December 18-20 as a turning point, a chapter is closing that is full of lessons and challenges you have experienced over the past three years while Saturn was in the sign of Sagittarius. On Dec 20, Saturn moves into the sign of Capricorn for the first time since the late 1980’s. There are new lessons and challenges we must work on now, but you’ll have three whole years to complete them, so until December 2020.

If you have passed Saturn’s challenges over the last three years look for rewards and blessings to show up! Saturn in Capricorn will bring new and different kinds of Karmic issues into our lives. Wherever Saturn moves in your own personal “Astrology Birth Chart” is the part of your life this energy will affect and is where that fate awaits you. This is also the part of life where you will be examining your goals and relationships and much more.

If you’d like to know just what lessons Saturn has in store for you over the next three years, please order an Extended New Moon report, and I will add the extra information all about Saturn and what you should expect. I will do the research into your personal “Astrology Birth Chart” and send all your information via email in a nice detailed report that’s full of all kinds of Astrological information to help you get through the rest of the year and into 2018!

Holiday Season

The best days to get that Holiday shopping done is December the 17 & 23, and then around the 27 & 28 for those of you who celebrate or observe other Holidays.

Mercury is in Retrograde just through the 22nd so you might have some issues with any new electronics and devices you buy during this time. Just keep receipts and warranties in place!

Also, this can be a good time to get a good deal on electronics, not just because of the Holidays but due to Mercury being in Retro, just be careful Mercury is the trickster of the Zodiac and you must keep your wits about you if don’t want to get taken!

Traveling during a Mercury in Retrograde phase isn’t ideal and coupled with it being the Holiday Season doesn’t make it any better! So expect travel delays, this is normal at this time. Try to not be inflexible, roll with it and come up with backup plans ahead of time, it could seriously help you make this time saner so you can enjoy your holiday.

This also means the weather will get a little crazy, which has already begun since Mercury went into its Retro cycle last week, with 10 inches of snow in Georgia to the fires in California. Packages and mail may get delayed, so get your stuff out early just in case. Do not wait till the last minute this Holiday Season, because some deliveries will be slowed down and some companies will even cancel out orders due to being so overwhelmed by all this energy, especially the week before Christmas.

Hang in there folks and keep your mind and hearts open.

Happy Holidays

Full Moon in Taurus

Standard

Rubys Astro Readings
Full Moon in Taurus

For all the Signs of the Zodiac:

The FULL MOON occurs on Saturday, November 4th, 2017, at 1:23 AM EDT, 12:23 PM CST

This week’s Full Moon occurs late Friday night, early Saturday morning, depending on what part of the world you are in. And it’s in the strong but loving sign of Taurus, which can bring up certain things like: Money, Security, Love, Beauty, Love, and Food, yes I said food, as we love to nurture ourselves and others when the Moon is in good, solid, stabilized Taurus, and therefore food becomes a strong need and desire for some under this energy!

The Full Moon is actually an opposition, when the Sun in Scorpio forms a challenging energy with the Moon in Taurus. This one is also what’s called a “Cazimi” Moon, because it is particularly close to earth, so certain themes will come into play more strong than usual. This energy brings up some issues around filling the voids in our life and what we are lacking.

Do you feel satisfied with what you have and do you have enough of what you need, and do you feel secure? Wondering if you have enough money, love, food, or security can come up during this Full Moon, and the answers will become quite obvious over the weekend.

Full Moons are about balancing out the two opposed forces depending on what Zodiac Sign they are transiting, and we must look at these energies to understand what we need to be doing to work with this energy and not against it. There is the more earthy, practical, peace-loving, and security minded Taurus Moon and than emotional, power hungry, soul-searching, dramatic Sun in Scorpio. The Moon in Taurus wants you to find something that fills an emotional need or void (hence why food can become a stronger desire), but it wants you to do it in a more simplistic way, finding what works for you in this life. While the Sun in Scorpio draws our attentions to what is more deeply psychological and complex, it draws us to solve the mysteries around us. This Full Moon illuminates this conflict between what is physical (Taurus) and transforming (Scorpio).

This energy makes us feel more passionate, in love, and highly creative! This Full Moon’s energy helps us think of the possibilities and helps us learn through our experiences. Taurus is ruled by Venus and Scorpio by Pluto but also Mars, Venus-Mars are the Cosmic Lovers of the Zodiac, so our intimate relationships are highlighted under this powerfully strong Full Moon, and things like our personal comfort and what we value and our sexuality is going to be super strong right now!

The Full Moon is the high point of the Moon cycle, and it is a time when the energies we started during the New Moon come into being. It is a highly emotional time but also a time of romance, relationships, and strong desires.

The Full Moon in Taurus can also be about abundance and helps remind us of what we already have. But there is a strong Venus/Uranus oppostion that will be very close to this Full Moon, and since Venus rules Taurus, this aspect can be quite significant. This is an awakening to what we are lacking in our life and our personal need to find a new way of doing something on our own, and for many of you issues around your personal security may come up, and concerning your work or career, and especially around your love life! Since the Sun, Mercury, and Jupiter are all in the sign of sex itself, Scorpio, issues around our sexuality can also show up now. We need to be doing something that helps us to enjoy ourselves and experience pleasure more often on a regular basis.

This Full Moon is also connected with Jupiter and is harmonizing with dreamy Neptune, as they get closer to make a exact beautiful Trine. This is some nice energy folks that emphasizes fertility (not just having babies), imagination, and those ah-ha moments of realizations or epiphanies that are magical! This energy can bring money, sudden windfalls and just random dumb luck!

This brings in a energy of generosity as our compassion and faith are stronger than usual, we are more willing to make personal sacrifices around what it is we believe in, if it’s for the higher good!

“Setting Intentions w/ the NEW MOON”

Standard

“Setting Intentions w/ the NEW MOON”
October 19th, 2017

 

There’s a New Moon occurring in Libra, Thursday, October 19th, which makes this the best time of the month to set some powerful intentions around your future goals with the Universe and work a little magic!

 

The Moon goes into the Void cycle around 2pm CST and 3pm EST Thursday afternoon, but it won’t switch signs until around 8:45pm CST and 9:45pm EST, and then will move into Taurus!

 

*Setting Intentions*

During a New Moon cycle, we should be asking the Universe for new beginnings, by planting seeds of intention from our heart and getting in touch with our higher-self. It’s a good time to be grateful for what we have and work on manifesting what energy we want to come in next. What I mean by that is we can create whatever it is we desire, such as a better life, more money, happiness, love, it doesn’t really matter, but we have to do some things to make it really happen. And no not everything you want is going to just magically appear. But at least you’ll be placed on the right path towards your destination!

 

By “Setting Intentions” with the energy of the New Moon, you’ve made it clear to the Universe what path you’d like to begin heading down and that’s a start. Then the energies will begin to line up to get you there.

 

The intentions that are set during a New Moon will set you on the right path towards your desires. The New Moon is a magical time of beginnings when you can recharge goals or set new ones. During the New Moon, we often experience an “energy shift.”

 

Here are some ideas on what to Manifest under a New Moon:

 

1. Get clear about something you want and write it down.

 

2. Share your intention with someone in a supportive way, and who will be encouraging.

 

3. Do something today to demonstrate your commitment to your intention.

 

4. Acknowledge that you did what you said you would, and then take the next step.

 

So have a conversation with the Universe (meaning your higher power, God, Source, Guides, Angels, etc), and ask the New Moons energy to help illuminate the path that leads you towards your deepest desires. Simply ask to be led to what you’re choosing to manifest. Remember to be patient and simply allow the time needed, things don’t always happen right away, but we can get taken down certain paths to find our way to what it is we’re looking for… and sometimes magic just happens.

 

What if you don’t know how to “Set Intentions” under the New Moon?

Follow the Steps below to learn how:

Step One: Clear your sacred space

Clear the energy of the area or room you’re using to do New Moon work in. You’ll simply be calling in some positive energy to work with. Burn some sage or Incense and clear the energies. Next close your eyes and breathe deeply … and call upon your guides, Angels, or higher power in and ask to have your sacred space cleared, and then to fill it up with the energy of love and light. Never leave energy empty, always fill it with something once you’ve cleared it.

 

Step Two: Set the atmosphere

Set the mood for your “New Moon” Ritual and again burn some special incense, light some candles (and colors of candles do have different energies and meanings), play some music that helps you feel spirituality connected. This can be very different for everyone. Just makes sure to use whatever colors or tools that make you feel calm, centered, happy, and peaceful.


Step Three: Setting Your Intentions-Making Wishes with the Moon

You’re going to need a notebook, paper, or a journal and something to write with. Think about where you’re going to do all this work at, because we create an energy vortex wherever we sit or sleep. This is mainly why you feel so good in your favorite chair, because it’s comfortable and feels safe and secure, but also because you have created an energy vortex in that spot.

Now write what energy you’d like the Universe to bring in. Simply write your deepest desires, wishes, and questions. Think about what energy you’re trying to manifest or create. Write a letter, like as if you are talking to an old friend. Think about what energy you’re trying to bring into your life and be detailed.

As you’re doing this work and setting your intentions, here are some helpful questions you can think about … for example; ask what you’re choosing or what changes you would like to see in your life? What are you or should you be calling in? How do you feel about what is happening in your life now, and what do you want to create? Think about your long-term goals and future and what you’d like that to look like over the next month. Be careful about focusing on the how, why, and when of your goals, focus more on what it is you’re wanting and how you want to feel. Let the Universe take care of the rest.


Step Four: Visualize

It’s time to visualize what you’ve written. Close your eyes and take long deep breaths, so in your nose and out your mouth. See the energy of your heart center, that’s in the middle of your chest (not your pumping heart) but your spiritual heart or commonly referred to as the “Heart Chakra.” Visualize yourself in what you’re trying to create or manifest. For example; see yourself living in that new home, falling in love with that Soul-Mate, driving that new car. Just don’t think it, make sure and FEEL IT as if you were really experiencing what you’re visualizing.

Allow the Universe to show you which paths to follow over the next 30 days, and then allow the New Moon to light up those paths that you are supposed to be going down, so you may bring in what you truly desire, and let go of what you don’t want, it’s not serving your higher good and it’s blocking you from your desires.

MERCURY ENTERS SCORPIO

Standard
MERCURY ENTERS SCORPIO

By Ruby

Mercury is in Scorpio from October 17-November 5, 2017.

Mental Mercury (the planet that rules over our thoughts & communication) shifts, as it moves into more soul-searching Scorpio.

Our communications take a drastic shift from keeping the peace while Mercury was in balancing Libra, and now into pulling out what’s hidden or repressed while in Scorpio. Just like how the #metoo movement is taking off in Hollywood now, anything that has caused trauma will be lite up by giant Jupiter, now also in Scorpio.

With Mercury in Scorpio, our thinking runs very deep and intense. The truth of the matter is very important, as we become observers and can be obsessive in our pursuits. Just don’t push things to the point of insanity and know when to back off. It can prove difficult to say enough is enough.

During this time our thoughts and the way we communicate will be more deep and intense, and usually we like to chat a lot under these influences, because we are searching for what’s hidden or repressed psychologically. While Mercury was in Libra we were more about balancing our minds, while.coming up with simple but fair solutions to our problems.

Mercury in Scorpio is more natural, but has a darker attitude, so you may feel like things aren’t fair. The truth is what’s important now, as we look underneath it all! This is a time to let yourself investigate, observe, and really focus. Our never ending search for something more deep can be exhausting, but it satisfies our minds to simply know. Whatever is fake or false in our lives just won’t due, we are looking for what is authentic, especially around communicating, so our conversations can go much deeper.

This Scorpio energy helps us stay more sharp than usual, our minds our profound and quite analytical, which leads to one-track minded and even obsessive thinking. Better learn now while we get into so many planets in Scorpio, just how stop yourself. This energy can have you talking for days and not knowing when to stop yourself, so pay attention, and if you are talking someone’s ear off, rein yourself back in and take a breather. You can emotionally, under this particular influence, mentally exhaust yourself and others
