The Sun enters the fire sign of Sagittarius! Happy Birthday to all my Sagittarians! But this energy affects every one of us! As we have the sign of Sagittarius somewhere in our Astrology Birth Charts. This transit lasts through December 21st.
Over the last month, while the Sun was on Scorpio, we felt compelled to make intimate, deep connections with others. Now during Sagittarius Season, we can have a stronger desire to get out and explore and have an adventure. While the Sun moves through this fiery mutable sign, there is an urge to learn, grown, and expand our horizons, so we want to understand the world around us.
During this cycle, we tend to seek out the truth and higher meaning to any given situation. Our faith and hope is restored; we may start to feel hopeful again and more optimistic about life.
Since we’re feeling braver and courageous, we want to head down new and different paths. As our minds open up, we start to believe in the possibilities again. Our confidence levels can soar now, so we can be overly optimistic as we focus more on the “bigger picture” and our dreams instead of just the little details of our mundane everyday life.
However, we tend to overdo things during this cycle, and people can get carried away! It is a time of exaggeration when we can overstate, boost, or brag about something. We tend to say our feelings and ideas out loud, so if we are not careful, we can insert our foot into our mouth!
Welcome to Sagittarius Season, the perfect time to work on our faith, hope, and future visions. We may be more feisty, but we need a big change in the world right now, and this Cosmic shift is the beginning of many changes till the end of the year that can help us get through these darker times.
Do you wanna know if the Sun moving into the sign of Sagittarius is going to help you feel better?
Scorpio season of 2019 has been a rough one folks, it has been hard living life in such a deep emotional state with the Sun, Mercury, and Venus all in the sign of mysterious Scorpio. We’ve been observers and researchers, and have secretly been dealing with the shadows in our innermost thoughts and minds. As we have explored our shadow self over these last six weeks and have discovered many truths, now is the time to ask yourself what you’ve learned. This process has not been easy but if you can make some changes to your life or yourself than it was totally worth it!
The Mercury in Retrograde cycle exposed our vulnerable sides and tested our patience, but it’s lessons taught us to grow and evolve under the sign of Scorpio. Some folks went through this Mercury Rx cycle kicking and screaming. So it’s been tough. But with Mercury now direct and heading back to its normal pace, many of you have learned valuable lessons and are now working on fixing some mistakes and clearing up some misunderstandings, this will only get easier as our way of thinking gets more clear over the next few weeks.
Over these last six weeks, the energies have been intense, but you’ll notice a shift starting soon. With the Sun shifting from the deeper emotional waters of Scorpio, into the more bright and hopeful energy of Sagittarius, we are pushed out of the shadows of our minds and into the light of the Sun while in the Sagittarius energy!
Over the next month or so it should feel safer to explore and discover new experiences and adventures while under the Sun in Sagittarius. This energy is freeing and can help to restore our hope and faith. We can see the Universe has opened doors to opportunities that can help us expand our lives. But to truly enjoy this carefree energy we first must rid of the stuff that weighs us down. Remaining attached to emotional and mental burdens will only drag you down. So let go of all that junk! And free yourself from your concerns and worries, and live in the present moment, let the past be in the past and focus on the future.
Sagittarian energy is about the future, so make things simple and keep it real, just be honest. Don’t take that emotional baggage with you, or you could miss out on some pretty awesome opportunities.
Just a word of caution during Sagittarius Season, we tend to say out loud what we are thinking, and often we don’t think about who is listening or is around us at the time, or if we are hurting someone’s feelings perhaps. Often words can cut us like daggers and go deep, so try really hard during this time to think before you speak! Especially starting December 9th, when Mercury also shifts into the sign of Sagittarius, because remember Mercury rules our minds and how we communicate, oh yea, and this energy can really amplify the ongoing Sagittarius influence and we can say way too much sometimes. Now if you need to speak out loud and say your truth, you are in luck, you might just need to be a little frustrated or upset and then boom the truth will also come flying out! With Mars in the truth-telling sign of Scorpio now, it’s go time folks.
While the Sun is in Sagittarius we can be more curious and daring, so we will search and wander through unfamiliar territory. Feeling free to shine as you escape our fears, you’ll probably come to realize most of the fears you were feeling during Scorpio Season were just nothing more than illusions. Soon you may notice how some of those scary things you were feeling or thinking just melt away, because they simply are no longer the reality of the situation!
The Sun in Sagittarius serves as a reminder of our human existence. And that helps us to have trust and faith in the Universe once again. The space is created to believe in something again! We become the light that guides us towards a happier life. This brighter more shiny energy helps us to enjoy other people and situations. We’re full of new ideas and philosophies that can help us learn and grow. This renewed confidence gives us more courage and conviction to take the lead in our lives, and that means we can discover new paths to follow. So we can feel more inspired under the Sagittarius influence to get out and explore the world.
With the Sun in Sagittarius, and soon Mercury shifting also into Sagittarius, doors will fly open to amazing opportunities. The following list below is of life experiences that will pop up during this cycle. These are the kind of things we should be working with or doing over the next month.
school, education, books, and reading
religion, spirituality, and philosophy
dreams and Ah-ha moments
Some of you will take a new journey that’s more focused on what the true meaning of life is, as you gain more knowledge and as you realize what your sense of purpose looks like, and you can take the right paths towards your dreams and desires.
Have a good Sadge Season, and I hope you enjoy it. ~Ruby
The Full Moon occurs as the Sun in Sagittarius forms a tense opposition to the Moon in Gemini.
Full Moon details: Here’s when the Full Moon will come together, and for those folks who like to Set Intentions with the Full Moon, the Moon will go VOID late Saturday night or early Sunday morning!
Pacific – November 22, 9:39 PM
Mountain – November 22, 10:39 PM
Central – November 22, 11:39 PM
Eastern – November 23, 12:39 AM
This means there is a push and pull situation between the signs energies and it affects each and every one of us.
The Sign of Gemini is about the lower mind and Sagittarius energy represents the higher mind.
A Moon in Gemini’s lesson helps us learn how to think more logically, while the Sun in Sagittarius is persuasive and helps us think in a more open-minded way, and more far-reaching.
The Sign of Sagittarius is about the quest for meaning and knowledge and coming up with ideas that expand our here and now experience or at the moment. Gemini is quite comfy in its own environment or neighborhood, while Sagittarius is stimulated and wants us to go explore and have adventures. If we ignore our feelings either one of these energies provokes within ourselves things can get thrown off. Ideally, if we try to find a balance between these two energies, then this is what the FULL MOON wants us to do.
This Full Moon is all about communication, our behavior, attitude, and our sense of adventure. There might be a feeling like something has been building up inside of you, especially with so many planets in Retrograde now or just coming out! So now is the time when the energy of the Cosmos is hitting its peak and we must express how we feel! Over the next few weeks, we will probably learn more about what these feelings were about more so, and what they mean for us and our lives.
But for now it’s going to be difficult to not express how we are feeling through communication, and just keeping our mouths shut might prove to be very difficult, not only because of the Full Moon but also due to mental Mercury (Gemini’s Ruling Planet) in Retrograde, under the most expressive sign in the Zodiac, Sagittarius! This means we have a stronger than usual need to express how we are thinking and feeling out loud! This can be problematic, however, because during an emotional Full Moon we aren’t logical we are overwhelmed with emotions and therefore we come off way more irrational, and our feelings can bubble up and get the best of us. With Mercury right now in Sagittarius, we can communicate these feelings out loud and live right in other folks faces, and we may not have the normal filters to think first before reacting!
Bottom line folks it can be a weekend of frustrating conversations with people telling it like it is, at least according to them anyway, and that also means misunderstandings. It’s important to think before speaking if at all possible during this time and I know I say that more often than I probably should, but heed my warning on this one, these energies are tense and intense feeling! But look at your possibilities and what’s readily available to you at this time, and since this Full Moon comes together the night of Thanksgiving basically we should be already focused on what we are Thankful for. These influences can be strong and throw us off our game, but I have always believed if you set your mind to it, you can learn from the planets more challenging energies or connections. Remember this “LIKE ATTRACTS LIKE”, so whatever it is you focus on especially during a lite up FULL MOON, is what you will bring to you. I understand some of you aren’t doing well in life, and it’s so difficult just to think something good can happen, and I am not one to be so idealistic all the time that I don’t see the reality of a situation, but I also know if you direct your energy out to the world and the Universe, asking and even expecting good things, then eventually something better will show up! Be your own observer and pay attention to your thoughts and how you are looking at life, and make sure your next thought is about something good!
The Full Moon is a time when things come to a close and there is an energy of hope and fulfillment of that which was started back during the last New Moon a few weeks ago. It’s an emotional time that is romantic and full of relationship issues. The Moon is Full and bright in the sky during this time, and that is symbolic of the “illumination” that is occurring in our own lives. Or when things come out into the open and are brought to light. However, again these feelings we have now and revelations are based off our emotions and they can suddenly erupt and like a light bulb coming on, we just realize something, have an Ah-Ha moment as it’s called, or an epiphany of some kind. This is a time of awareness and knowingness! It is a time to usually express ourselves and to let things out into the open. Of course, we may want to try extra hard this time around to use some special care when doing so, knowing that what we are communicating or expressing is not particularly rational as of yet.
This Full Moon is complicated and personal for us. Being in the Sign of Gemini we are more curious and seek out ideas and information like crazy. This can also bring on a sudden awareness into our lives as I mentioned, but we can feel rushed, hurried or like things are rather urgent with a” must know right now” kind of mentality. You may feel like you need to get important messages to others, and to finish some sort of project and make announcements. Just think before you say anything! Travel and communication are our main focus during this time, but again Mercury is Retrograde and is Gemini’s ruling planet and this causes tension in these areas of our life.
Mercury is Retrograde and the Full Moon is in a tense Square with warlike Mars during this Full Moon. The Sun is also heading towards a connection to Jupiter, and Mercury is heading to meet up with Jupiter and the Sun, while it’s in Retrograde. All of this suggests that we’ll be looking at past matters in new ways, but also acting impulsively which can really cause problems, so remind yourself to MOVE SLOWLY DURING THIS TIME!
On Thanksgiving Day, the Sun moves into the sign of Sagittarius so there can be a light-hearted energy to the Holiday. The Moon will be VOID which creates a relaxed energy, so lots of folks falling asleep lol. With the Moon in earthy Taurus, an indulgent energy that truly enjoys food, it’s likely a whole lot of folks will overeat (which is expected) but some of you are apt to fill your plates a second time, and then have dessert and still make room for leftovers and maybe a midnight snack. If you are cooking this year, seriously make extra food.
As we get closer to midnight Thanksgiving night the Moon will shift into more busy Gemini and will become FULL on the 23rd! A Sun and Jupiter connection can cause overspending if you are already not feeling it. This means folks who are going out for Black Friday sales are going to probably open their wallets way more than usual. Many Astrologers are predicting record sales this year for retailers on Friday and Saturday. If you plan on traveling this weekend, be extra careful as people are a bit confused, with the Full Moon and Mercury in Retrograde it’s all too easy for accidents to occur! Tempers can rise quickly as well with warrior Mars testing the Moon, Sun, and Jupiter over the weekend.
Next week things start to look so much nicer folks, so work together, as lots of things in spite of Mercury in Retro will run smoothly once again. All of these shifts can create a lot of energy that can throw us off center. So pay attention, take your time, ask lots of questions if need be, and if someone is getting upset or frustrated remember we are all in this energy together, and under Mercury’s weirdness things aren’t so black or white. You can defuse a lot of problems if you simply are patient, flexible, and understanding, otherwise you don’t want a Holiday Mess. Focus on the deeper meaning of Thanksgiving which is to simply be with our loved ones and give thanks for who and what we have in our lives.
Have a safe and good Holiday. Wishing all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving. ~Ruby
“How does the ‘Full Moon’ affect you, and how do you utilize its potent energy?”
During a ‘Full Moon’ you have an opportunity to bring about some positive changes in your life if you use this energy wisely. It either can increase the positive energy around you or it can be an emotional wrecking ball, the choice is yours. This guide is a helpful reminder about how to work with the ‘Full Moon’ and its energies.
Remember a ‘Full Moon’ disperses a lot of energy, and that energy pours into each and every one of us. So the key to achieving success during a ‘Full Moon’ is to stay calm and embrace its positive effects. Whatever is going on with your mind, body and spirit will certainly be felt much stronger during a ‘Full Moon’, and our emotions can seem extremely intense. A ‘Full Moons’ energy is very powerful, so it’s important to know where you’re directing it. You can start by staying focused on positive intentions from your heart. Which means being real and authentic with yourself.
We’ve all heard of how the ‘Full Moon’ affects human behavior, causing chaos; as it fills up emergency rooms, but we also see random acts of crime spike dramatically during a Full Lunar cycle. Not only does the Moon actually create the tides in the ocean, science has also proven that the ocean literally ‘swells’ during a ‘Full Moon.’ The human body is made up of around 70% water. If the ‘Full Moon’ can move an entire ocean it certainly can and does have an impact on our human bodies that are mostly made of water. Water is strongly associated with and symbolizes our emotional well-being.
So just as the power of the ‘Full Moon’ can make entire oceans swell and move, the water we hold within ourselves becomes charged up from its energy, and this causes emotional side effects. The energy of a ‘Full Moon’ has a strong influence on us, hence why people act out days prior to its actual being Full…. this usually starts about three days prior and up to three days after it became Full. Just think about how the ‘Full Moons’ energy is affecting each and every one of us, literally from the inside out, it’s a very powerful, potent energy. All of the Moon’s cycles affect us differently, (but they do affect us,) because they’re part of us. The ‘Full Moon’ perhaps having the most dramatic and noticeable impact.
Ask yourself just how much personal power you have? If one can stay focused and use the ‘Full Moons’ energy to send out positive intentions, you can create and manifest energy out here…in this physical reality. It’s really all just about being conscious and aware of what you’re creating. Water molecules have been proven to hold an emotional charge within our bodies. How you feel is how they react, and they DO react according to your energetic intentions. So if you’re happy or sad, positive or negative, the water within you is affected on a molecular level. If we concentrate on this energy and focus on what we truly desire, and then visualize that – even more importantly FEEL it – can you imagine the possibilities! We can literally create what it is we desire out here in this physical world. I find that to be exciting! If you’re more interested in understanding how the water in our bodies affects us, check out this website on Dr. Masaru Emoto’s work, “The Water Crystals of Masaru Emoto”
This means if we visualize and then “FEEL” our intentions – as the Moon grows full – and I mean truly “FEEL” what it is we want, we can literally transform our feelings and intentions into reality in this energy. It’s my hope you can make sense of this and use the power of positive thinking and visualization to manifest your Dreams into physical reality; the ‘Full Moon’s’ energy is just a bit of Magic we need to make it happen. Let me know what you do with this info, and if you’re brave enough to test the waters?
The ‘Full Moons’ energy is both intense and loving. If you are aware of these energies, it gives you an opportunity every month for both emotional and spiritual growth. Here are some tips to follow during the ‘Full Moon’, that can help bring in more positive energies…and release old energies that just simply don’t work anymore in your life. Here are some simple guidelines to follow during the ‘Full Moon’:
1. Don’t allow arguing and don’t get angry!
The ‘Full Moon’ is a time of releasing and one should stay calm, breathe deeply and let things go. Try breathing through the moments that are difficult and be forgiving. If you just can’t let something go and must express yourself, try writing how you’re feeling down or telling a friend, and wait for at least a few days after the ‘Full Moon’ and then again write down how you’re feeling, see the comparison. Everything is going to be more intense and amplified. So just keep the energy flowing and moving in a happy, more uplifting direction.
2. Think positive thoughts!
During the ‘Full Moon’ each month, you have very powerful, strong energies working in your corner. So if you can balance your emotions and focus on positive thoughts, they’ll be energized and multiplied. If you spend even a short amount of time upon waking and before going to sleep, visualizing what you truly desire, or on what’s good or positive in your life while being thankful for your blessings…it can be magical! Remember “the attitude of gratitude.”
For example, write a gratitude list and some thank you notes to the Universe. Take walks and take in the beauty that is around you. Look in a mirror and say positive affirmations to yourself, (yes this really works.) Visualize positive thoughts and/or desires being sprinkled with “Moon Dust” and watch them grow like flowers in a garden.
3. Visualize your Dreams manifesting.
The ‘Full Moon’ is the right time to do manifestation work around releasing what is no longer working or serving you. So sharpen your techniques by using your imagination to set goals. Take the time to write what you would like to manifest and what energy you’d like to see gone or are done with. You could even make a Vision Board with pictures that represent your goals, it can be the actual goal or the word that represents your dreams and wishes, place them on a cork board, make a collage…and hang it up on a wall, where you can see it every day. This puts you in a constant state of awareness and helps bring the energies of you want to you. When you spend time focusing on your dreams and goals, or Setting Intentions as it’s called, during the ‘Full Moon’ it can give you an energy boost!
4. Practice Meditation alone or with others.
The ‘Full Moon’ pours out so much energy, that meditating during one can create a calm and still energy that is profoundly strong. Finding a sacred space to practice meditation can help tremendously. There’s a lot of groups that meditate during a ‘Full Moon’, so look for spiritual groups, centers, or online groups that come together to meditate. It can be very powerful healing and manifest work.
5. Send others blessings, be of service, practice acts of kindness.
Having this powerful energy at your disposal makes a ‘Full Moon’ the opportune time to pay it forward! Send healing energies, forgiveness, white light and energy out… out to everyone, you can think of, including strangers. Send loving and kind energy to your friends and family. Then go deeper and send peaceful energy out to the world (which we need more than ever), think of the places in the world that are experiencing strife, hardships, poverty, or war. This can open doors for those who are in need.
Whatever you believe in or faith you might have…you can’t deny the way you feel during a ‘Full Moon,’ so at the very least take one small step within your heart and try to work with its energy. Test your theories and have a Blessed Full Moon!
