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

The Solar Eclipse is Getting Closer occurring on August 11th

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

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

How will the Eclipse energy affect your life?

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

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

Solar Eclipse time table – August 11th

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mercury in Retrograde – How to Be Productive

Mercury in Retrograde – How to Be Productive
by Rubys Readings

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

How to be Productive during Mercury in Retrograde:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mercury Retrograde News
Time of Confusion
by Ruby

Well, it’s that time again folks, things are starting to really slow down as “Mercury goes Retrograde”, this makes for an interesting Cosmic mix this summer, as this energy brings twists and turns that can cause confusion. Just mentioning this Astrological event causes some high anxiety!

~Mercury is officially Retrograde from July 25 – Aug 18.

If you don’t know what Mercury in Retrograde is let me help ya out. It’s when the planet Mercury appears to be going backward from our perspective here on Earth. Such a large celestial body coming to a halt in its cosmic journey comes with its repercussions and affects our lives.

There are already several other planets in Retrograde right now, and the majority of these Retrogrades aren’t as annoying as Mercury can be, or at least we just don’t notice their effects in the same way, because Mercury is closer to the Sun and is considered to be an inner-planet rather than an outer-planet like Neptune. So with a Retrograde only lasting for three weeks, it tends to wreak some havoc in a very short amount of time, and this is intense for us to handle mentally.

Since Mercury rules over our cognitive skills and processing, it affects how we communicate, express ourselves, and think, but it also affects technology and transportation. Glitches and snafus seem to be strong during this Retrograde time. Often Mercury in Retrograde will cause delays in our thinking, but it also can cause things like mistakes and errors and if you work with any kind of computer or paperwork this can be a highly annoying time! During this cycle watch for things like travel delays, losing important paperwork, computer and phones breaking down, awkward social interactions, ex’s both friends and lovers come back into our lives (this doesn’t mean we are meant to be back together with them.)

This cycle again affects how we think, therefore all kinds of odd little things can happen, like mistaking a word or sentence for something completely different than what is written, or you can hear someone say something and realize later they didn’t say it at all! Our minds have moved down into a different realm now, and we must learn how to listen to our “Intuition” to understand things that we normally cognitively would just know. So our messages from the Universe don’t come in so clearly now, things are not black or white, we are in the grey folks! Therefore, the only way to really understand things is to go by how we are FEELING, let that little voice inside you, your higher power, or guides help you by learning how to connect more so to your spirit during this time, and you can coast along and understand some things like you never have before, it can actually be a process of discovery like no other. Also, during Mercury in Retro, we tend to learn things about others and situations that we never knew before, so pay attention to the information that is coming in now it can be important later.

This time around Mercury is in the proud sign of Leo, so expect issues to come up between July 25 and Aug 18. But the Universe always creates some sort of balance and even though Mercury in Retrograde causes some mayhem for us, it is never without a purpose. During this time you are seriously supposed to be taking a time out from your daily grind, and responsibilities, yes it is a great time to take a long vacation if you can, just expect delays if you travel. It is time to turn inward into deep introspection within ourselves, rather than work against these Cosmic forces. In fact, you shouldn’t be “Starting Anything New” or take any risky moves until this cycle is done. Instead, you should be reviewing, re-working, or redoing, and organizing things in your life. Look at what you have already been working on, and start preparing in advance to avoid problems during the actual Retrograde cycle.

There will be a point when this Mercury in Retro cycle will challenge you and your ego because you are also being tested by Mercury to learn how to trust the Universe in all its crazy unpredictable energies. So, therefore, it’s never a great idea to take failure personally, instead see it as a lesson and a learning experience. If you are doing the work spiritually or even just working with the energies in some way, you should put faith in that the doing that work, simply just works! All you can do is relax and flow with this influence and know you are doing what you can. Use this time wisely to go back over anything that comes up be it emotional, physical, or mental.

It’s a good time to clear your mind and meditate or just relax. Mercury rules the mind and in Retrograde right now we have to rely on our extra-sensory abilities, pay attention to how you’re feeling, and what you see and hear that others may not, your signs and messages. It’s time to let your intuition guide you because our rational minds are on a Vacation for the next 4 weeks.

May 2018 Monthly Horoscope

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.

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

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 
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.
