The NEW MOON is in the sign of ARIES this April of 19, and it brings in fresh and new energy. This particular trailblazing NEW MOON is when the Sun in ARIES and the MOON in ARIES both make a rather harmonious connection. ARIES energy is always about New Beginnings, and NEW MOON’S are about starting a NEW CYCLE in our life. So this fiery lunation is strong and potent! When we think of Spring time it’s about renewal and new Beginnings, and this is the perfect energy to line up right along with the start of the new season.
During this time we should be able to take the lead and move forward in our lives, and be the warrior like this ARIES energy and charge ahead! This is the time to take action, try something new and innovative, and go after what you want. Don’t be afraid and let your confidence take you where it needs to. ARIES energy can help you learn how to be assertive without being harmful. It’s a time to take charge of our lives and start something new and different. The lessons ARIES hands out is about staying young, and connecting to your inner child in some way, but it’s also trying to teach you how to be bold and learn more about your own personal courage.
Now that mental MERCURY is freshly out of its Retrograde cycle, the energy of strength helps you to better understand yourself, so you can do some soul searching through journal-keeping, meditation, or exercise. You have an opportunity to start this cycle off on a good note and make the changes you’ve been patiently waiting to make while MERCURY was in RETROGRADE, it was a long one.
This is a good time to set goals, plans, and commitments that are more realistic. “Go big and go hard” is a good ARIES Mantra, no matter how big or small you set your sights, you should start to notice things happening within a few weeks by the next FULL MOON. Later, you may get to reap the rewards from whatever new beginnings you begin.
ARIES is the first sign of the ZODIAC, so this being a NEW MOON makes it especially strong with opportunity for New Beginnings. It is a time to actually act on impulse if you are careful of course, follow your gut instincts, your intuition, and take some risks. Aries is a sign that teaches us to take action and learn through our experiences. So get out there and have some sort of adventure!
This is also a good cycle to learn more about how to keep things real, ARIES teaches all of us a valuable lesson around expressing ourselves in a more authentic way and without being false. This helps you to better rely on yourself and to be happy about doing so, so you can be put you on a path towards finding inner peace and ridding any anxiety you may be experiencing around being alone. Then you can be self-sufficient and not worry so much about blaming those who weren’t always there.
“This is a time to break your normal everyday routines and have experiences that involve doing something new, this can help you feel more alive and worthy.”
However, this particular NEW MOON is forming a tense square to taskmaster SATURN, which means some paths towards our New Beginnings might be blocked. Some kind of plan or expectations you have may not startmoving as quickly as you thought they would.Hopefully, since we are in a unique time Astrologically with NO major planets or cosmic bodies in RETROGRADE, eventually theenergies will get moving after we deal withSATURN’S challenges.
For All, you fellow ASTROLOGY freaks this NEW MOON phase occurs at 15 degrees and 17 mins of ARIES, which tends to affect folks born with their personal planets and points at 11 to 19 degrees of the Cardinal Signs of the ZODIAC (ARIES, CANCER, LIBRA, and CAPRICORN.)
NEW MOON TIMES LA: Friday, April 5, 1:50 am CHICAGO: Friday, April 5, 3:50 am NY: Friday, April 5, 4:50 am LONDON: Friday, April 5, 9:50 am SYDNEY: Friday, April 5, 7:50 pm
April is a busy month, so get ready folks, with Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto all going into Retrograde phases this month, it’s a time for reassessment around what you are doing in your life. And with four planets in magical Pisces, the focus is more on imagination and illumination than practical matters. This period is wonderful for creativity and spiritual exploration but it’s best to wait until at least April 5th before making decisions that require focus, or a the very least some careful thought and consideration.
Since our plans and projects will be under such an intense review throughout the month of April we must make sure an align our goals with our life’s purpose. It’s also a good time to stop any activities that just are simply holding you back, or aren’t serving you. Quit wasting valuable time and energy. If you take the time to review your goals and plans this month than you’ll probably see progress in the fall when things really take off again. But for now, you have some lessons to get through and hopefully learn from.
April 2nd – Creative Confusion
Mercury just recently out of its Retrograde cycle (but still in the after Rx Shadow phase through the 16th) makes a powerful connection to Neptune the king of dreams and escape. Mercury rules our mind and how we think, communicate, and perceive information. Neptune rules over things like our imagination, spirituality, and deceptions. This influence can inspire you and others, so you may feel highly creative. This also can help you communicate your dreams to the person you adore.
But it’s also causing confusion with mental Mercury just in the after-Shadow period of Retrograde, also in Pisces, as well as Neptune. All in all, this energy can make things unclear and foggy. If something sounds too good to be true it probably is. Don’t get ripped off or scammed, deception is in the air right now. Find ways to be inspired, get creative and this fog will finally be lifting for good in a few days.
April 4th – Power Moves
Powerful Pluto makes an intense connection to the Lunar South Node point both in the sign of Capricorn. Some folks could try to make bold moves to gain power or control during this time. So there may be some pretty wild upheavals. There can be ego battles that can be destructive in one way or another. If you force issues on others without taking responsibility for your own actions it can backfire on you. This is not a good time to just go after things on a whim without seriously taking consideration your consequences. Take some time to evaluate your goals and make plans for your next move, so you can get what it is you really want, but just make sure to not bump heads along the way, or it will only cause you more problems.
April 5th – New Moon in Aries – New Beginnings
There’s a New Moon in the sign of Aries occurring and whatever you’ve been planning or working on can finally start to get moving. This energy gives us a chance to breathe new life into already existing projects. This is all about “New Beginnings” in a big bold way! As the first sign of the Zodiac, Aries is all about courage, and it gives us a huge dose of higher confidence and energy to take on our tasks, projects, and goals and make things happen! The Pluto-South Node alignment is also occurring around the same time frame, so this can help us to be more practical, even if we are more daring with new and innovative ideas. If you already know enough to make an informed decision, it’s important to not be indecisive. Try to be patient and look for more information around the next Full Moon on April 19 that will help you know what to do next.
April 10 – A Reality Check
The Sun is making a tense Square formation with taskmaster Saturn. It’s important to know what responsibilities you want to take on and what you don’t, it’s a good time for some assessment of your life. as you will be challenged to rid of the things that you are doing too much of or that might be taking up to much of your time and energy. It’s no longer “go big or go home,” instead your mantra for this time should be, “go small or give in! Create balance around what you want and that is for the greater good of everyone.
April 10 – Take a Step Back
Giant Jupiter is going to be making its yearly backward trip as it enters its Retrograde cycle for nearly four months. Making progress will come to a halt as this cosmic turnaround tends to slow us down. This is a cycle of reflection into what gives your life deeper meaning, and what helps you feel more abundant. This isn’t typically a time of difficulty, but when Jupiter gets ready to turn Retrograde it can seriously slow us down as it’s an influence is more intense feeling. This actually can cause you to feel a sense of urgency and desire to find something more expansive in your life and to get rid of the things that are restricting you, holding you back, or that are keeping you from feeling happy or satisfied. Every now and then the Universe has a way of making us take a time out to review our lives, to make sure that our plans and projects are still what we want and need. Through August 11th is a time for cutbacks on the activities that don’t help you reach your goals, and to rid of any distractions that waste your time, energy, and money! Don’t worry about the projects that slowly go to the waste side, as they were a waste of your time anyway, During this cycle whatever plans don’t make the cut will turn out to probably be a blessing in disguise. Once Jupiter is direct, whatever plans or projects you have been working on will start to come together. You got a long time to sort it all out. If you happen to know your Astrology Birth Chart, you can look up just exactly what part of your chart this cycle is cruising through to get more information.
April 13 – Power Moves
The Sun is making a tense Square to potent Pluto! With the Sun’s transit through the sign of Aries, most of us are trying to initiate something, but we might have to deal with some powerful energies for a few days. Perhaps a person who has their own agenda or situation might ask you to change something up that throws your original plans out the window! It’s a time to be paying close attention and for being more mindful of other folks needs, besides your own. You can’t always take and take from others and expect something if you are not giving anything back in return. You can also be challenged in some way to make sure you are empowering yourself. Don’t be stubborn and don’t give everything away either. You will know when the time comes what you need to do if you pay attention to your signs and messages from the Universe during this powerful few days.
April 17 – Quick Thinking
The planet of communication Mercury will enter into bolder, enterprising Aries that brings amazing new insights and flashes of genius. This can help us take any plans or projects we might have new directions. Just make sure these directions are on a path towards your life’s purpose in some way and not a huge detour. Take this time to connect with other folks who help stimulate your thinking and who are encouraging, as this cycle can help you rid of old behaviors and habits for a better future. Also, keep in mind that Aries is known for being the God of War. It’s not a time to be debating or arguing or you can get caught up in all the negative drama and those great ideas won’t get moving forward. Instead, direct your energy towards achieving goals so you can take full advantage of this transits that will run through May 6th.
April 19 – Full Moon in Libra – Balancing the Chaos
When the Sun in Aries makes a tense but exciting connection to the Moon in Libra a Full Moon will occur. We are just coming out of the New Moon cycle at this point that started on April 5th. This Full Moon cycle is at what’s called the critical degree or anaretic degree, this means completion and marks the end of one cycle and the evolution into another. This Full Moon in Libra, the sign of balance and integration, encourages us to find ways to leave behind anything that is standing in our way of finding balance. Something might have to come to an end in order for us to find peace and harmony. This is also a time of culmination as you get a chance to take a step back and see if you are doing right by others and if you are paying attention to the folks in your life and their needs and desires. It’s all about being fair as our sense of justice is stronger than usual, put your focus on strengthening the bonds in your current relationships. Even though the Full Moon is always a time of endings, it is a time to work on releasing the energies that no longer are working for you. But this will be a social Full Moon time, so it’s a great energy to have a party under or to spend some time with a close BFF, and since Libra is about relationships maybe have a romantic dinner with the object of your affection.
April 20 – Sun enters Taurus
This Sun cycle is a time when we simply slow down, but we are also more determined, patient, and stubborn. The energy of the sign of Taurus is more practical, grounded, and stable. This is a great help with so many other cosmic connections during this time speeding things up, we can take a time out and look more closely at events unfolding around us or any complicated situations we are involved in with some common sense. This transit highlights things that are pleasing, beautiful, and attractive. This will be a month of relying on what’s always worked in the past but also moving forward with the times, it’s about integrating tradition with evolution in our lives. You will want to be more comfortable during this time as well, so set up camp for the next month to make sure you have a safe and cozy place to hang out while the Sun is in Taurus. Our senses are aroused and highly activated, so we enjoy more so, whatever pleases the senses, with things like food, music, entertainment, and sexual activities, (especially with Mars in the sign of Gemini as well, bow-chicka-bow-wow) we can have an incredibly sexy month. This cycle runs through May 21st.
April 20 – Blazing Love
The Goddess of love, Venus is moving into the first sign of the Zodiac, Aries, this brings fresh new energy into your love life and around your finances. This cycle brings love on rather quickly, relationships both new and old are more direct and spontaneous. Under this fiery influence, we tend to hunt each other down in matters of the heart, as we are more bold, courageous, aggressive, and impatient. Even though we can much more direct than usual with the folks we love and care for, some of you might be more reserved about your deeper emotions, and if you are feeling insecure you can get kind of aggressive or mean, especially if someone isn’t validating or expressing love back. This can cause some folks to be more sneaky and strategic when it comes to matters of the heart or anything involving money. Under the Venus in Aries influence we don’t look back to the past, it is a time to move forward. Each day is looked at as new and full of opportunities, so each moment matters more. We are not interested in anything mushy or things like apologies, we simply enjoy the chase and conquest. Relationships that are more long-term can use this fiery energy to reignite their passions, and if single love that is initiated now can sizzle out fast. Make sure and keep things moving forward if you want a new commitment around love or money, but also pay attention to what will happen in the long-term unless you are just looking for a hookup! This will run through May 15th.
April 22 – Exciting Journeys
A new exciting journey begins with the Sun making a connection called a “conjunction” to more unpredictable Uranus! This can be a liberating experience as we move forward from old habits and ways of thinking, especially about ourselves. Staying positive is key to being successful under this cycle, as it may not be as stable as some would like, but good things can happen. It’s a time to put your past behind you where it belongs, and keep an open mind about other people and embrace new thoughts and ideas. Most of all stay true to yourself and honor other people’s desire to express who they are and their own unique qualities.
April 24 – Power Plays – Pluto Retrograde
Powerful Pluto challenges us on how we use and gain personal power, when Pluto goes backward or Retrograde. How do you deal with power and control? Some folks can’t simply get enough of power, and others are nervous when they have more, and then there are a few folks who refuse to take control of anything in their lives when they should. When Pluto goes Retrograde, it brings about power struggles around well, power, people rise and fall from power during this time, as there are lots of plays for power made. This is a good time to do some soul searching around your own personal relationship with power. What are your goals? What do you want to achieve in life? Do you feel like you have power over someone else and their life or is someone making the decisions for you? This can affect any part of our lives, but for the next several months we will be figuring out to how to move forward in ways that make us happy, just be careful about who’s toes you step on or how many folks you use your power over to get there! Remember Karmic balance always comes into play with these sort of things and if you abuse or just use folks to get what you want, it will eventually catch up with you in one way or another. Pluto will be in its Retrograde cycle until October 3rd.
April 29 – Saturn goes Retrograde – Taking Responsibility
Saturn the planet of rules and boundaries goes into its yearly Retrograde phase. This is a time when we must review our lives and make sure what we going after is exactly what we still want. This Retro period lasts through September 18th. During this Retro cycle, we are taken back over territory that we probably have already been through at one point. Saturn is about taking our responsibilities, rules, and boundaries more seriously. So there are going to be areas of your life that are important to go back over and review, to see what you can do to make these situations more secure. This can be a frustrating time, so we have to face possible limitations, barriers, or working on ending habits that aren’t so good for our future long-term success.
April 30 – Saturn in Retrograde gets a boost!
To further enhance Saturn in Retrogrades energies, Saturn is in a conjunction with the Lunar South Node point. You may want to think about what you are being responsible for? Are you taking other folks burdens on or taking care of other people’s obligations? Do you think you should be the one in charge and are telling everyone else what you think they should be doing? Are you taking the steps to fix things when something comes up or are you enabling bad behavior? During this cycle, it’s time to go over your responsibilities and let go of old habits, old learned behaviors, and ways of thinking around who’s in charge and why!
VENUS is the planet that rules over LOVE and often MONEY. The GOODESS Of LOVE moves into the sign of PISCES on March 26 through April 20th. PISCES energy can be more loving, tender, and compassionate, but often it becomes overzealous with partners and when in love. PISCES is often looked at as the Universal symbol for love in the ZODIAC, so it has its amazing points, as we can feel more free to love unconditionally and accept our lovers and partners, friends, family members, co-workers, and business partners for simply who they are. However, we may not know when to draw boundaries in love and with partners, or when spending money, so we need to be mindful.
While VENUS swims through the waters of PISCES, we tend to be more compassionate, but also are attracted to those folks who feel left out, overlooked, or even the ones who feel victimized. We tend to see people for who they are, without so much judgement or prejudice, but since it’s VENUS this applies more to those we love, and do business with.
Setting boundaries in our relationships and partnerships can be more difficult during this time, as we tend to give up what we need, to help other folks get what they want! As the walls dissolve between this physical world and other relams, we can have a hard time saying no, especially if our hearts are more open to the other person involved. But we can be champs at ignoring or avoiding people if need be, especially if we feel uncomfortable. And there can be more issues with Wishful Thinking, as we tend to believe what we want.
Love is not so easy to define under the sign of Pisces, so it can be more difficult to reach the object of our affection at times, both physically and emotionally. Love is not seen in black or white, but live, and in color and HD for that matter! It’s all or nothing under this influence.
While Venus is in Pisces we see love as all embracing everything and everyone, so we are better able to forgive and understand. Love is usually quite sexy under the sign of the fish, and we can be very seductive but also more easily seduced, or taken advantage of. We do tend to show more compassion to our partners now, as we seem to feel more tender and affectionate, but again at times we can still be hard to reach. But overall this can be a time for healing in love, however, there can be a longing for something that just can’t be defined, especially in our loving relationships, it’s more difficult to be or feel satisfied.
Borders, walls, and boundaries dissolve in our relationships and around our finances. As these lines blur the shadow side of this position becomes more evident. Some people can be more cunning, evasive, deceptive, and can easily victimize or delude you into believing something that’s absolutely not true.
Especially, if it’s about who they are, what they believe in or stand for, and what they want from you again in love or involving finances. Take heed, if someone tells you something that sounds to good to be true it probably is while Venus in the sign of Pisces. Don’t fall for lies and scams during this time.
The March Full Moon in the sign of Libra is rather special from an Astrological standpoint, as it takes place on March 20th which is also the Spring Equinox, which in the Northern Hemisphere is the official start of Spring, and it’s also the same day the Sun shifts into the sign of Aries in 2019, and Aries Season begins.
This rare Spring Equinox Full “Super” Moon is when the Moon actually comes closer to the Earth. It takes an interesting combo of timing and location to attain Super Moon status, as they appear to be super-sized and much larger and brighter than a regular Full Moon. But this one is extremely special because it occurs during the Spring Equinox.
A few days before the Full Moon people tend to get weird and emotional, as the pressure builds up a few days prior to March 20th, this Super Moon’s energies will really pump things up. Some folks will feel more anxious, excitable, and can get highly irritated. But it also brings in incredible opportunities for love and money. So hopefully, being made aware helps you to be better prepared, so you can find your zen and stay grounded. Then this Full Moon’s super strong energy won’t cause you so many problems. Knowledge is power!
This Full Moon is in the sign of Libra, which is about partnerships and relationships, be it romantic or business, family or friend, something might be revealed, or become very important. Many of you will be making decisions about jobs, marriage, divorce, dating, letting go or allowing someone into your life under this Full Moon. Those folks who are already in a committed relationship may have some major turning point this week. Some of you might even meet up with a new or old lover, who you share a deep romantic bond with. However, we are still under Mercury’s cycle in Retrograde, so be careful. Just because someone we once loved shows back up in our lives doesn’t mean we are destined to be together. Take it very slow if you happen to meetup with a old lover or friend, it’s probably a lesson and not for the long run.
The Moon is in the 1st degree of Libra, which is the start of something or a new beginning. There can be epiphanies and Ah-Ha Psychic moments that have some special meaning, usually these are about starting something new and fresh. Something comes to full bloom, and this puts us on a new path. Oddly enough, the day after the Full Moon, Venus, Libra’s ruling planet is forming a tense Square to its Cosmic lover Mars, which is Aries ruling planet, and the Sun will be just shifting into Aries starting on the Full Moon point! This can bring up conflicts and tensions between our need for independence and togetherness. The end result of these conflicts can lead to new beginnings. Here’s an interesting note, this Full Moon occurs right at the beginning of the sign of Libra, and next month’s Full Moon will be near the end of the sign of Libra, so there is way more to this story then you probably realize at this time. Perhaps, an ending around whatever is brought out will be understood more during April 19th Full Moon.
“Feeling anxious and irritated during a Full Moon is actually a normal physical response to the Moon’s gravational pull on the planet. Just like the tides of the ocean rise during a Full Moon, so does the water within our own bodies, hence causing a physical and emotional response.”
This is also a great week for healing, and maybe gaining some sort of understanding of what you need to help heal yourself. The Sun in conjunct Chiron, the “wounded healer.” A emotional wound may come up to the surface to deal with, revealing that something needs you attention. If you make some time to learn how to nurture yourself, there can be some amazing healing work done.
As I mentioned March’s Full Moon is in the sign of Libra, and this definitely puts a spotlight on our relationships (of all kinds.) This gives us an opportunity to take a step back and observe ourselves, and notice if we are including the needs and desires of those around us, as we continue on our own journey. There’s a stronger pull to be fair and just, as our focus is more so on strengthening our relationship ties and bonds. This is a very social energy and a good time to have some sort of celebration, maybe you could throwing a party and celebrate the Full Moon-Spring Equinox! Take some time alone with your BFF while you’re at it, and don’t forget to schedule some sort of romantic adventure out with your lover!
The Moon just barely in the sign of Libra will go Full Wednesday evening, check your time zones! And it will stay Full through late Friday evening on the 22nd, so it will be strong for 2 and half days!
March 20th, Full Moon Occurrance Times
Eastern Time Zone 9:42 p.m.
Central Time Zone 8:42 p.m.
Pacific Time Zone 6:42 p.m.

Chiron often called the “wounded healer” is associated with wounds that cannot completely be healed. And in life we go through many experiences we can’t entirely fix or dismiss. Once something has been done, you cannot run away from it, you can only face it and deal with it, and you can’t undo or change the past. What’s done is done, and sometimes wounds leave scars. These scars become part of us, but we can’t let them dictate what we do or feel in the future.
In Astrology, Chiron’s purpose is to help us heal with the pain we’ve endured. But our healing is a very personal thing, and our emotional wounds become a story of past trauma and pain that helps identify who we are. Chiron is also known as a teacher, mentor, a guide in Astrological terms, and its lessons help us learn how to transcend our personal pain into the collective experience. Then it is no longer just our own pain but all of humanity’s. It’s not necessarily just about the struggles we have with our self-worth, it’s the compassion we feel for all those who suffer, due to a lack of self-worth. Chiron teaches us how to get through the pain, so that all of humanity can be freed from these wounds.
The Old Way
Chiron’s run through the sign of Pisces over the last several years has been about self-discovery, and learning how to endure through times of struggle when solutions weren’t readily available. We are now being challenged to transform and find healing through others acceptance of our past experiences with Chiron in Aries, feeling validated for our feelings
may have seemed impossible to deal with before, but also to have some kind of faith that a path through the pain and darkness can still lead us to light and healing.
The New Path to Healing
Now that Chiron is in the sign of Aries its handing out lessons that are about taking new steps to deal more directly with any struggles we have had to endure. Even though we may not know what the solution is about, we tend to act fast. We are attending a new school, learning how there are plenty of other ways to change just how we respond to such pains and trauma. For starters, learning how to change the way we express ourselves about our painful experiences, and what priority we give them as well, when you think of our life as a whole.
While Chiron journeys through the sign of Aries, our focus is on how we have the ability now to take action, and stand up for ourselves with coruage and bravery! Chiron in warrior sign Aries, often brings back the past when we were scarred in some way by abuse, aggression, violence, and even war. This influence has us reconnect to our suppressed frustrations or anger, and the part of us that’s felt defeated! It’s about our power struggles in relationships, but also our physical wounds, our short-comings and flaws, and when we felt stuck or like we lost something. It’s a time to be validated for how we have felt when wounded.
With Chiron in Aries our emotional wounds are brought back up and out from the Karma we have caused ourselves, and from the times we didn’t choose to listen to our inner voice, and did nothing differently or did nothing at all! It is about lack of action. Now is the time you can face these issues and these feelings head on and change the game. Being a victim under anything to do with Aries energy is a big no no, and we will fight for what we consider to be right, and find ways to deal with our problems head on. Or we will leave our pain completely alone to move forward, which could be a problem for some folks while Chiron is in Aries. Wounds that are not dealt with have a tendency to haunt us. Instead, be the warrior and fight, don’t give up or give in to your fear of what happens when you feel exposed or vulnerable. With Chiron in Aries we must work at being more strategic and deal with our wounds, or they will only come back up later to be dealt with once again.
Venus the planet of love, business, money, and lust changes Zodiac signs today from optimistic, adventurous Sagittarius to realistic, accomplished Capricorn. Venus will be in this sign from February3rd, 2019 to March 1st, 2019.
Venus moves fast folks around the Zodiac wheel in exact order, so we must take advantage of the energies she puts off while in the sign of Capricorn for about the next month.
With this placement, our relationships tend to be more on the practical side. That’s because we tend to see people for who they are, and are not afraid to lay the cards out on the table, as we simply take things more seriously. Since we appreciate maturity in our relationships, we take our time when it comes to love and slowly warm up to others, but we can make long-term commitments. There will be more focus on business relationships as well during this time.
It’s time to think about who you can count on. Do the people you care and love for follow through on their promises? The planet of LOVE and AFFECTION moves through the sign of Capricorn and draws your attention to the most real aspects of your relationships. No matter what someone says if they can’t commit to you and the relationship they are having with you it usually won’t last. So you will know true love when someone is making you the priority, and if they make some sort of sacrifice for you. Rid your life of those wondering Romeos and Juliets and open your heart to people you can trust.
Venus also is connected to our finances and what we value, from people to material things. Therefore, it’s the perfect time to get serious and make long-term plans in these parts of our lives. It’s a time to get real and take inventory around what’s coming in and out in your business and personal finances.
If you are a Sun-Sign or Rising-Sign in Taurus or Libra, you may feel more focused and serious over the next month. As your heart may want to make more practical and attainable plans for the future. If you’re a Capricorn Sun-Sign or Rising-sign, as long as Venus is in your sign, you can attract more love, abundance, and beauty into your life.
No matter what your Zodiac sign, enjoy this more practical, stabilized energy while it lasts.
Mercury has finally left its Retrograde cycle! Can I get a HOORAY!! Heavy Deep Sigh and Exhale, Haha!
Mentally strong Mercury, the planet that rules over our way of thinking, communication, and forward movement is finally turning direct December 6th after being in its Retrograde (backward) cycle since November 16, 2018, so over the coming weeks ahead, the problems we’ve been experiencing with communication, decision-making, and glitchy electronics will start to improve. Slowly, over the next few weeks will be able to make decisions once again. But be patient folks, as this energy doesn’t change overnight, it actually takes some time to get back to normal. Just be thankful that Mercury is back on the right track again because that means so will our way of thinking.
Any plans or projects you couldn’t get finished over the last few months can at least slowly get started with some potential for success. But we must start out very cautiously and take baby steps because we actually can be flooded with too much information and it can be overwhelming. This can make matters even more confusing and difficult to make sense of. Actually, it’s just good practice to wait before making any important decisions for the time being, as our thinking isn’t quite clear and there still can be major consequences for jumping ahead.
During the Mercury in Retrograde Shadow period, we should take all necessary precautions, moving ahead slowly and not committing to anything long-term just yet! Make sure to back up computers and phones, get your passwords organized (if that’s possible, ha!) Make sure your Cloud Storage is working correctly and backed up. Keep up with your bills and make sure everything is organized and paid on time. These are just a few ways to ensure you won’t have to deal with some of the glitchy aftermaths that the Shadow Period can cause.
In fact, this after “Shadow Phase” of Mercury Retrograde coupled along with all the other energies and the powerful New Moon can simply be too much energy to handle and very distracting. The clarity we seek isn’t readily available under this changeable energy. This Shadow period is about processing what we have learned during the actual Retrograde Cycle. Mercury’s Retrograde cycle might have thrown you completely off balance, but the question is what lessons did you learn? What challenges or changes did Mercury Retrograde bring up? Take advantage of this Shadow period, until Mercury goes completely back to normal around December 25th.
For example, maybe you realized your judgemental BFF or friend was just reacting to how you have been slowly, or passive-aggressively been critiquing or criticizing their lives! Oops! The second half of the Shadow Phase is when you really can start participating in a new more kind way of expressing how you feel to your friend. So take some time to explain how their actions are bugging you and why. This can be what fixes the friendship enough to keep it together.
Try to wait out making any sudden moves if at all possible, and if you’re needing to make any major changes just try to wait until after December 25th when the After-Shadow phase of Mercury’s Retrograde cycle is over. Enjoy!!
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
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.
The last Mercury Retrograde of 2018 will be in effect from November 16th through December 3rd, 2018.
Sometimes the Universe gives us a break even though it doesn’t always feel that way. One thing the Cosmos always does is create balance. So the energies get slowed down a bit so we can have the opportunity to catch up. Mercury in Retrograde (Rx for short) is that time out, it’s an opportunity to get caught up with life, and a time to unplug and take a long deep breath. It’s also a great time to take off from work if at all possible, maybe taking a little vacay and focus on reworking anything that needs to be done, or finishing projects that were never done to completion, while Mercury rules over our minds and thoughts. When this fast moving planet goes into Retrograde we start to perceive things in a very different and unique way. Mercury in Rx like all Retrograde plants is happening for a reason, this isn’t some new Astrological fad! Planets have always gone into Retrograde cycles and will continue to. So every once in a while we get a chance to pause or stop and get some rest. This is the time to review your life and the paths you’re on. What this Mercury in Rx cycle does is help us to breathe, be still, relax, and review. The main thing to understand as this cycle takes a hold that it’s a time to review your life and redo anything that needs to be done. It is time to re-search, re-think, re-visit, re-connect, and to get re-organized.
What Not To Do during Mercury in Retrograde:
Don’t start brand new projects
Do not get into arguments, avoid critical folks and tense people or situations.
Do Not Sign Contracts or New Agreements
Avoid Travel- Do Not take misunderstandings personal. Our communication is foggy and cloudy.
What To do during Mercury in Retrograde:
Redo, Rework, Review, Research, so basically go over things again and wrap up old business and projects.
Double Check the Facts and any info gathered.
Revisit what you need to, like your work.
Reconnect with the folks that matter if you’ve had issues or not.- Backup Computers and any data you want to keep saved, usually start this process two weeks prior to the actual Retro Cycle.
Reorganize your daily life routines.
Declutter.- Reflect and practice spiritual work.
Release what’s been holding you back or blocking you, let go of what no longer is working especially in your intimate relationships.
There can be positive things that come from a Mercury in Retrograde cycle that you just didn’t think about before. Like throwing out old stuff you no longer need or use, and organizing your life. Stay focused on any past opportunities and reconsider them now, see if they’re still an option, and try to let go of any computer glitches or electronic snafus you might be experiencing.
Mercury is currently in the sign of Sagittarius and this is strong wild energy. Therefore we will be in for some wild twists and turns along the way as our big ideas come out in the open. The sign of Sagittarius, after all, is the sign that shoots for the stars and thinks anything is possible. If we take this cycle to plan and strategize we can make things happen once it’s over! As we go back to revisit and revise our plans we can make some interesting new discoveries.
Since it’s the Holiday Season, it’s important to keep a paper trail of whatever you purchase. Mercury is known as the “trickster” of the Zodiac, so it likes to play tricks that make us change our minds suddenly and this causes confusion. Lots of people come back around from our past including ex-lovers and friends. Mercury’s influence seems to bring these chance meetings together! But that doesn’t mean it’s fated to be together.
So our focus should be on re-organizing and reflecting. We see the world a little differently during this time, and through these filters, we can have some very important inner revelations. It may not be as easy to communicate under this influence, but remember not to try and rationalize everything. Logic is out and intuition is in! Mercury Rx periods can be times of heightened inner-awareness, so doing things like meditation, keeping a journal, reworking old plans, reviewing, or reconnecting to your past can be quite helpful. Mercury Rx is also a powerful time to study, particularly for returning to old studies and re-learning or refreshing knowledge around a subject that’s already been taken.
This Mercury in Retrograde cycle can also help you think back to a part of your recent past, and reconnect you to an old dream or goal to follow through on once this cycle is over, but write it all down for now. Someone from your past might get a hold of you for a second chance or opportunity, but that doesn’t mean it’s meant to be, usually, it doesn’t work out for the long-run. But it’s nice to reconnect and perhaps sort out any unresolved issues you might have.
Because we are perceiving things in a different way, the truth tends to come out, and you just might notice or find some kind of detail you overlooked or didn’t catch before, which can be very helpful. This cycle can bring clarity and help you move past any restrictions or blocks standing in your way. Mercury begins retracing its steps in direct motion from December 6 (its shadow ends on January).
Rubys Astro Readings
“Sun in Scorpio”
Oct 23rd – Nov 22nd
For All Zodiac Signs:
The Sun is shifting into transformational, mysterious Scorpio and “Scorpio Season” officially begins. This transit runs through November 21st. The sign of Scorpio is notoriously known for being the darkest, (symbolically speaking) most mysterious, and psychological sign in the Zodiac, as it explores the soul deeply while under the light of the Sun.
Scorpio energy for each and every one of us is about depth, intimacy, and transformation. Anything fake or false will be shown for what it truly is while the Sun is in this sign, so if something or someone is superficial it simply won’t work for us at this time, only the real deal will do! Scorpio is the detective of the Zodiac, therefore we are more interested in getting to the bottom of our problems, to uncover what’s been hidden, suppressed, or unseen, or even unknown. Under this energy, you might actually enjoy all that is odd, taboo, or different. Anything that’s just plain or average may not be enough during this time.
Over the last month during Libra season we worked towards being fair and equal. But while under all this Scorpio energy we accept the fact that “life isn’t fair” and understand that pain and suffering are actually part of the process of life. In order to truly evolve the soul we must transform ourselves which means we must end something to begin anew. The sign of Scorpio is often represented by the Scorpion, but also The Mythical Bird, the “Phoenix” which can represent this brave sign, the Phoenix story is about how it flies up in the air and catches fire and turns to dust, only to resurrect itself and come back to life to start over again! So just like this story, all of this Scorpio energy teaches us that we have to sometimes fall apart, let something end or die off in order to resurrect ourselves or our lives to tap into some kind of new energy!
Scorpio energy is sexy, mysterious, and provocative, so there is going to may be something interesting that sparks up in our relationships. We often look for a love that is committed and long-term during this time. This Scorpio influence keeps us perhaps a little more reserved about how passionate we are feeling, but we can still be strong-willed and intense, as this is a time of powerful emotions and some of you might feel rather emotional during its transit! This energy can transform certain things in your life, of course, depending on where it is going through in your own personal Astrology Birth Chart! Which I can tell you all about in a personal Astrology reading with me, but in the end it can help heal you!
The more shadow side of Scorpio energy is we can become more easily jealous, paranoid, obsessive, and manipulative. And this energy also can cause some folks to become obsessive, going on and on about issue or problem, over and over again, and even if you get nowhere you might find it hard to stop once you have started on whatever you are focused on. Despite how scary or creepy this all might sound, Scorpio is still part of the Zodiac Wheel, and we all have a little Scorpio in each of us.
Curious Mercury and loving Venus are also in the sign of Scorpio where they will stay throughout Scorpio Season. This means our soul, hearts, and minds are all being ruled by Scorpio energy, therefore, some of you will be breaking things down to rise up once again, and perhaps resurrect yourselves in some way. This can be an amazing energy to work with if you want to finish something in your life, after all, Scorpio Season is a time of endings, hence why we choose to celebrate Halloween during this time, as it originated from the Day of the Dead. But this also signifies a time of rebirth, and you can rise again.
During this time of breakdown we might face some real challenges, also with larger than life Jupiter currently in Scorpio. There are so many planets either in Scorpio or moving through it, that we are already starting to see its influence as it’s a bit of a darker time, where lots of folks are getting sick and quite a few are choosing to leave this earthly plane and crossover. This just might be the theme for the next 3 weeks or so. We are in the breakdown for now folks, but this is also a time of powerful transformation. Then once we enter into Sagittarius season starting November 23rd, we can start to work on rebuilding our lives and getting what we really want, especially with lucky Jupiter moving into the sign it rules, Sagittarius, for nearly 12 months!
