May 2018 Monthly Horoscope
by Ruby

April was a seriously intense month on the Astrological front and this was reflected in our everyday lives. The planetary shifts we have experienced have been transformational, but there is more to come now as we begin 1, and hopefully, these energies will be more on the calmer side.

The powerful Full Moon in Scorpio is slowly breaking apart now but was one of the most intense Full Moon’s of 2018. And with so many planets going in and out of Retrograde (backward) like Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto we are feeling it! The odd part is we are feeling this energy more internally, due to the planets that are Retrograde, and many of you aren’t choosing to express how you’re feeling. Do what you can to express your emotions during this highly emotionally charged time.

The first week of May might seem almost quiet once the Full Moon energy breaks apart, but the New Moon in Taurus on May 15th can be a catalyst that brings in major changes in our personal relationship with our physical reality. The weeks ahead will likely be some of the most important moments of 2018.

The New Moon comes together on May 15th, 2018! Just hours after the Sun and Moon connect, the New Moon occurs. And on the same day, Uranus the planet of change, chaos, and liberation also changes signs for the first time since 1942, into the sign of Taurus, this starts on May 15th and goes until November 6th!

Uranus is the planet of high vibrational energy and revolution, so as you can imagine having Uranus so active on the day of the New Moon is a pretty big deal. Note: this will affect all the signs, and not just Aries and Taurus!

Many of you are already experiencing the effects of Uranus’s shift into Taurus and may not even realize it. The first of the Earth Signs, Taurus represents our basic survival needs such as food, clothing, shelter, and money. Since Uranus has been in the Sign of Aries for so long now, it helped to create that spark as it’s fire breathed new life into all sorts of situations and projects. But the sign of Taurus helps to sustain life, so themes around manifesting, building, and farming and anything earthy will be our primary focus now. Ruled by the planet Venus, Taurus also favors anything beautiful, pleasurable, and sensual. We are not just here to exist or be of service under Uranus in Taurus like we have been doing all these years with Uranus in Aries. Under the sign symbolized by the Bull, Taurus, we are here to live in Earth’s beauty and abundance of nature and to give and receive.

The Sign of Taurus is very much associated with the planet Earth, and since our human existence is literally hurting our home planet, we will see this reflected back to us so we can heal. Therefore, Uranus’s entry into Taurus can be dramatic, mostly because this happens just a few hours after the New Moon comes together.

So other planetary connections will be triggered, and one of those connections can create some serious volatile energy right around the time when the New Moon makes a tense Square to aggressive Mars in Capricorn, while Uranus is the very last degree of Aries, and this is right before it’s shift into Taurus, and that is a very strong placement and time. So make sure to be careful about how you react to folks from May 13th through 17th, because sometimes it’s just not worth a reaction at all.

Uranus stays in the sign of Taurus until November 6, 2018, which gives us some time to get things settled back down, and work on grounding!

Then Uranus actually goes Retrograde and throws itself back in the sign of fiery Aries on November 7th through March 6th, 2019, so we already know how to handle Uranus in Aries, but in Retrograde it’s a whole new story. The urge to start fresh and break free from restrictive attitudes or circumstances, and to totally redesign an area of our lives (or even our personalities), and to gain freedom through independence is strong with Uranus in Aries. I will explain that more as we get closer to that time.

Uranus finally will re-enter Taurus on March 7th, 2019, for a seven-year journey that won’t end until April 26, 2026. Whatever events or changes that are caused by Uranus in Taurus were probably already started a long time ago.

On May 16th, Mars enters emotionally detached Aquarius, through August 12, this can be a bit unforgiving and aggressive energy. It’s also a dynamic yet erratic energy, we can try to achieve our goals but in a very impulsive manner, and our anger levels can be a bit impersonal. However, we are less concerned with personal power and are more team-players, and cooperative during this time. We are highly attracted to unconventional methods and tend to approach problems more with our minds, as we feel more detached from our emotions.

The Sun drifts into Gemini’s quick-witted and alert presence for a month starting on May 20, making you intensely curious to learn new things. Expand upon the knowledge base you tapped into earlier in the month or learn something totally new. You can be quite the quick study of this energy. Everyone is going to feel this energy, so life might move extremely fast, take a lot of notes during this time and learn to take breaks.

A beautiful Jupiter-Neptune Trine comes exact on the 25th of May, this is the major planetary influence this month and lasts from May 10 to June 12. This encourages hope, generosity, and a sense of community spirit. You may start seeking out a spiritual quest to find the truth during this time. There are going to be many destined encounters with teachers and light-workers of all kinds, like Guru’s, Priests, Psychic’s, and Healers. Someone might even come to you for spiritual guidance. Enlightenment comes through dreams, visions, meditation, and deep spiritual pursuits. It will be more difficult to ignore the sick, poor, and needy during this time, as we are reminded that we are here to take care of each other! As your morals or standards vibrate higher, you will want to find ways to do selfless acts to helps those that need you. Animal and environmental charities will be on our radar even more so than usual. There will be more interest in human rights and refugees, and other innocent victims of war and greed, as social justice will be more important.

Some folks may feel a strong urge to get creative and find an outlet for their enthusiasm through music, dance, art, or theater. Following our dreams for success without having to sacrifice our ego or material possessions is part of this influence, and being wealthy or famous might not be what makes you truly feel happy and content. Romance will be strong and love will be in the air during this time, as others can find you extremely attractive!

On May 29th the Full Moon comes together in the sign of Sagittarius, this energy is all about the adventure or journey! It opens up the greater truths and everything we need to explore our personal freedom. The Sun in Gemini will be opposing the Moon in Sagittarius so our minds will be lit up, as the fiery Sagittarius Moon illuminates our souls wisdom, and helps bring forward information we know on a deep cellular and soul level, it’s the info we carry in our DNA we are talking about here, including past life memories, it is the information we carry deep in our hearts and in our bodies. This very special lunation inspires us to seek a higher perspective on our life’s path, which opens doors to new possibilities and helps us create our future!

Just a little side note:

A special point in the Cosmos is going to be activated on the day the New Moon comes together, this is all about feminine wisdom and power! If you thought the New Women’s movement had peaked with #metoo or #timesup, think again! May is a good time to think about your place in this world as a woman or if you are a man, around the woman you love and support, and your feminine side. Ask yourself where you want to be! If you’re not feeling inspired by life, then now is the time to do something about that and perhaps join a cause that supports your beliefs of course.

St Patrick’s Day New Moon

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.

Full Moon Ahead
By Ruby

28378080_10154994721721268_4685383667202129920_n
The FULL MOON is coming together in the sign of wellness, Virgo on Thursday, March 1st, this energy can help us create order out of the chaos. The more messy parts of our lives will be illuminated, but it can help us clean our lives up!
 
This Thursday, March 1st, there will be a FULL MOON in Virgo at 11 Degrees. This is an important one because in Numerology it’s an 11 which is a master number. Many of you continue to see the number 11 or 11:11, and it is believed this is a sign from the Cosmos, Angels, or Guides or whatever you believe in, they are trying to guide us and lead us in the right direction towards our soul path. It’s important to take time to jot down what is going on in your life when you see these numbers. The number 11 also represents the higher consciousness, higher-mind, or inner awareness and helps open doorways or portals to higher dimensions of energy. So the degree of this week’s FULL MOON is making it a very special one, one that welcomes with open arms March and all its magical energy!
 
Also on Thursday, Love will be in the air in quite an amazing way! Loving Venus in compassionate Pisces gets all close and snuggly with JUPITER the planet of expansion in seductive Scorpio! VENUS is quite the charmer and naughty JUPITER can bring about some serious flirting, sexting, and pillow talk!
 
FULL MOON’S are very interesting influences and have a profound effect on us human beings. One fact many folks don’t realize is a FULL MOON is actually a tense opposition between the SUN and the MOON! This can cause us to feel tense, emotional, and anxiety-ridden! But some of you are in such awe of the FULL MOON that you may feel more excited and bewitched by it. Either way, things can go well if you learn how to work with the FULL MOON’S energy and what it’s illuminating.
 
Ask yourself some questions about this month’s FULL MOON in the sign of Virgo. (This astrological influence affects all the Signs of the Zodiac.) Is it time to do some spring cleaning or maybe try a new diet or physical training? You might think it’s too soon just yet to start these things, but with the FULL MOON in Virgo, we are to clear out clutter and organize our lives, while working on our overall health and wellness.
 
The FULL MOON in Virgo is about getting our act together, so are you taking care of business? Are you organized? And are you helping or being of service or a help to others? It’s time to let go of paying such close attention to the details and any nit-picking behavior, as it can be damaging to both our personal and professional relationships.
 
The FULL MOON is the time to let go and move on from the things that aren’t working for you anymore, or that are no longer serving you, or that are blocking you from finding happiness. It’s time to let go of any fantasies you’ve been holding on to, which you’re probably are already deciding are never going to work out anyway. I’m not trying to be a killjoy but we must be realistic during this particular FULL MOON.
 
This FULL MOON will also be opposing the STELLIUM in Pisces that I’ve been discussing in my blogs over the last few weeks. It will reveal what you may not have been seeing clearly in February. It’s a good time to make use of this energy by doing something positive regarding your health. Think of ways to improve your overall well-being. Do you need to start exercising or eating better, well this FULL MOON can reveal the best course of action to take to get on the right path to wellness?
 
The sign of Virgo rules the intestines and our whole stomach area, so all the ZODIAC signs should watch for digestive tract issues and be careful of what kind of foods they’re choosing to eat during this FULL MOON. Also watch for nervousness or anxiety, as this can also set your stomach off. Our gut actually holds more serotonin than our brains, and when these levels are low we can experience depression.
 
This FULL MOON is likely to reveal someone who is taking advantage of your kindness or generosity. If someone has taken you for granted it can be more noticeable as FULL MOONS shed light on our circumstances and bring forth the truth!
 
It’s also a great time to work on manifesting! But we should be working in situations with people that we know we have a real chance with or who support us. It’s not the kind of whimsical FULL MOON energy that seems to be based on faith. Our focus instead should be on hard work and stability with the people you already trust and know. This applies to our personal and professional lives.
 
The FULL MOON in Virgo occurs around the same time that MERCURY and MARS Square off, this can cause impatience and tension around what we discover and any realizations we might have. However, this FULL MOON also harmonizes with stern Saturn and this can help us come up with strategic plans for the long-term.
 
Have a blessed FULL MOON

February 2018 – Monthly Astro Forecast

February 2018 Monthly Astro Forecast 
by Ruby

February begins right in the middle of Eclipse Season as the Lunar Eclipse in Leo just occurred the last day of January.

This is a strongly animated energy with the recent Eclipse occurring in the sign of Leo, it was also conjunct the asteroid Goddess Ceres. This means we are being made more aware of our own creativity, and are tapping into this Divine Feminine energy, as this affects all of us so both men and woman. It’s a time to develop the more feminine side of your personality and see what your true potential just might be. Being halfway through the Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere means we are slowly shifting from darkness to light. This means we have learned a lot of information thus far on a deeper soul level, and now are slowly developing and processing that information to bring out into our everyday lives once the Spring Equinox occurs.

One of the more strong planetary shifts happening this month is on Feb. 8th, when URANUS leaves it’s tense connection to PLUTO or what I’ve referred to over the years as the “SQUARE”! Since 2009, these two have been going in and out of strong tense connections together, as they have made several meetings from 2012-2015. So finally, we are turning a corner and getting away from this more intense aspect! This one has changed lives and for some folks, it has created the most challenging times of your lives. So good riddance to this energy!

The partial Solar Eclipse will occur on February 15th in the sign of Aquarius, (but remember this affects all of us.) This Eclipse will make an interesting connection to Aquarius ruling planet, Uranus. This energy can bring up strong reminders to value whatever freedom or privileges we do have and open our minds to different new ways of doing things and to be open to new perspectives. This is only a partial Eclipse, so it’s visible for the folks in places like Antarctica and Argentina.

The sign of Aquarius is about being cool, calm, and friendly while remaining unattached emotionally to other folks just enough to do what needs to be done. This influence teaches us how to not let our emotions rule our actions and to take care of business. So there will be a stronger desire to work on companionship with others during this time. Also, topics around health and medicine are going to become more important, especially mental health issues and woman’s health.

The North Node of destiny is currently in the sign of Leo, so during this Solar Eclipse, we are being asked by the Universe to work on healing our emotional wounds around betrayal and jealousy, to better follow our true life path and live out our real purpose. We do this by learning how to accept and love ourselves more. Letting go of resentments is where you start to do this kind of work, forgive yourself and others both and move forward.

It will get easier to do any kind of forgiving and letting go of differences by Feb 18th, when the Sun enters Pisces, the sign of compassion and acceptance. There will be five planetary bodies floating around in the ethereal waters of Pisces at that time, oh wow, can you say ESCAPE and RETREAT! There will be a strong urge to get away from it all as we draw near the end of the Astrological Year. Pisces is the considered the actual last sign of the Zodiac and the Sun in Aries is the beginning of our Astrological Calendar.

During the last part of the month, the energies are going to get heated up folks, so be aware and careful when aggressor Mars meets up with more relaxed Neptune on Feb 17th. This is one of those influences that just of becomes part of the backdrop of our lives until the end of the month, therefore it is important to not take easy ways out to get rest because you might feel like giving up on things all together. You may have to discover innovative ways to help keep you motivated during the last week of February.

Take it easy this month and get real with yourself about what truly makes you happy, and go after it with logic and common sense, but also make sure to take care of yourselves, we are in Eclipse Season and that can be very draining on all levels.

“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.

New Moon in Capricorn – Jan 2017

NEW MOON in Capricorn
by Rubys Readings

The first NEW MOON of 2018 is on January 17th!
We have been under some heavily saturated energy in Capricorn with six planets now in the sign at the same time. This is very focused energy that has challenged us to take charge of our lives and make a commitment to taking some sort of action.

Capricorn is an Earth Sign and is ruled by Saturn and is represented by the “Seat Goat.” This is a powerful time to manifest and build something with much potential. Our intentions can actually be realized and seen, so we should remain aware of what energy we’re drawing into ourselves and our world. You might be feeling some pressure now to make decisions and be at a crossroads of some kind. The secret to reaching goals is to have trust and faith in something, but especially in yourself. Don’t let fear lead the way, it takes away your motivation and then you won’t make commitments to reach your goals.

The sign of Capricorn teaches us about Authority, so it knows all about fear and control. This New Moon can teach us how to connect to the authority within ourselves, so we can be in our power and take charge of our lives. This is a time to pull back into our souls and reconnect with our spirit, as our energy can become scattered due to being involved in activities have nothing to do with what we want or need, and our soul path.

Making a strong connection to whatever it is you believe in is important now, this helps you make decisions with integrity that are natural and authentic. When manifesting anything you must first learn how to FEEL what it is you want to create! This is the best time to work on “Setting Intentions” or your “Wish Lists” around calling in your deepest desires. New Moons are always about New Beginnings and this particular New Moon in the sign of Capricorn and the Sun also being in Capricorn is strongly about manifesting! Don’t focus on just what you want, also feel how it would be like if your dreams or wishes come true! And how it feels just to think of them. Ask yourself how you want to feel once you’ve achieved your goals? FEELING is the secret to manifesting or creating magic in your life, not THINKING! Thinking is the what draws the energies to you, yes, but if you really want to make something happen you have to feel it.

There are some rather interesting and powerful planetary connections to this New Moon! First off aggressive Mars in its own sign of soulful Scorpio, forms a supportive aspect to this New Moon, which helps us reach our deepest feelings and desires. Jupiter also in Scorpio is making a precise connection to Pluto in Capricorn. The connection between Scorpio and Capricorn during a New Moon teaches us that if we want to reach any goals here in this physical reality we must first be fueled by our passions! This is about being real and authentic, and focusing on what truly makes you happy, rather than what you think you have to do or following someone else’s wishes or dreams.

Now there are also some challenges when this New Moon squares off with rebellious Uranus, which can bring on chaotic and disrupting energies, which leaves us with no choice but to surrender our control and have some faith or belief in something.

All of us no matter what Zodiac Sign have Capricorn in our own personal “Astrology Birth Chart!” This side of us is being challenged to learn how to master our inner-self, instead of wasting so much energy on trying to control the world around us. If you want to see things as you would like, you must first learn how to work with your Spirit. It always starts with you first, no matter what the problem or case may be!

Often the sign of Capricorn gets picked on as being overly weighty, and to serious or focused on fame and material things. The Horned Goat is used to represent Capricorn because it symbolizes the connection between the physical realms and the deeper waters of consciousness. So as we are in very strong Capricorn terrority right now with so many planets in this sign, we are also strongly connected to our own inner-psychic or awareness, if we learn how to combine that and operate from our heart around anything we do and be compassionate, we can manifest our reality into something amazing!

Positive New Moon Ahead

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
