Venus enters Scorpio Nov 21st – December 15th 2020
It’s a time of intensity, passion, and deeper commitment to our relationships and financial affairs.
With the headmistress Scorpio in sultry Venus, any skeletons in our romantic closets can fall right out. So we tend to be more secretive about love and money. This influence can bring an intimate encounter with someone sexy, magnetic, and maybe even irresistible. It can tie the bonds between lovers and friends on a deeper soul level. It’s a time of healing and transformation in our relationships. Still, if we want to get to a recovery point, we must first pull out our deeper emotional stuff and do some serious analysis.
Venus in seductive Scorpio has the power to draw out what’s superficial in our love lives and our financial affairs. Secrets are often exposed as cheating lovers, or partners are discovered. This energy brings out the truth and wants us to deal with the jealousy, secrets, abuse, or misguided behavior in our lives.
With Venus in Scorpio, we want to get to the bottom of our problems and go below the surface to examine our issues more deeply. Especially in situations involving power, fear, and sex. Venus is in determinet while in Scorpio, so it’s not concerned with superficiality and prefers the chase in love, so it wants to transform us.
Venus rules over our relationships, so it is a more affectionate and social energy kind of energy. Scorpio is about passion and likes to go into the depths of love. This means we might crave more meaningful and intense emotional experiences. It takes us into something deeper, as love and intimacy become equally important. This idea of dating isn’t as comfortable because we’re searching for long-lasting romantic encounters instead. This energy can help us build on our committed relationships as well.
The shadow side of Venus’s energy is more wild and lusty. Take into consideration what people will do in the name of love, as it can get dark. People can become obsessive and paranoid. This influence is mysterious and secretive, so we are not in the mood to play nice. We want to dig deeper into our emotional wounds to spark some change.
Our inner detective is on high alert and wants to figure out what’s lurking in the Shadows. Paranoia can set in as suspicions start to play in our minds, we may start looking for signs of betrayal in our relationships and closer circle. This transit can help us discover what we are intuitively picking up on and help us get to the bottom of our relationship problems. This energy shines a light on the truth and what’s really happening. Even though we usually are more willing to stick things out, and find common ground in our relationships, reality checks are strong and can break or strengthen existing bonds.
“Scorpio energy wants to transform us, which means it can get rough as we enter into a time of deep analysis and psychotherapy in our relationships, under the Venus is in Scorpio transit!”
Venus in Scorpio also brings out concerns involving money and business, including power struggles and power plays. Private issues we tend to ignore suddenly become more obvious during this time and are often exposed! How we spend our money is important, especially in partnerships where financial resources are shared. It’s an interesting time for financial investments, as we can make effective decisions concerning things like loans, insurance, or banking.
Venus, in Scorpio’s intense energy, can feel emotionally burdening, but it also can transform us and help our relationships evolve. And this can lead to strengthening bonds if we take on the challenges of this transit, even if it’s rough at times. It’s a sexy time that can bring our partners closer or help us even meet a soulmate. Try to keep your compulsive thoughts in check and enjoy this energy!
The New Moon is in the sign of Scorpio on November 14th or 15th, depending on your Time Zone, but is felt now and throughout the weekend. With both the Sun and Moon in the sign of Scorpio, it is super strong and potent. And can be a powerful time to work on yourself.
Think about doing some New Moon energy work. Simply, make out a Wish List or write down what you want to start or begin under this New Moon energy! Set Intentions! New Moons always bring New Beginnings, but this particular New Moon is all wrapped up nice and tight in the sign of endings, Scorpio, the sign of the Zodiac that represents resurrection. We may have to fall or fail, or let something end in our lives, only to rebuild ourselves anew! We then can rise like the stories of the Pheonix and create a new better life for ourselves in one way or another.
It is also Eclipse Season, so our Moon work can involve releasing and letting go, perhaps finish or close something in your life. Make wishes and wish-lists, write about whatever you want! Release a situation, person, or what you should let-go, this also can include worn-out old beliefs and behaviors. This New Moon energy is transformational and can be life-changing.
In the weeks ahead, we’ll be working on our self-mastery skills. It’s a good time to discover what parts of our lives feel out of control. We can release our inner demons with things like addiction or debts and free ourselves from emotional burdens. This energy produces an opportunity to get rid of any excess “stuff” we have been holding on to in our lives, be it material or spiritual. We may feel moved to dig much deeper when it comes to life’s mysteries rather than staying content with the status quo. So it’s important to get in touch with what motivates you, and what will enhance your feelings for intimacy, forgiveness, and meaning. We have a deeper need to feel a sense of purpose and depth in our lives and within our souls. We can truly move forward by doing things during this cycle to develop a new idea, project, or relationship.
Look for ways to release any fears of confrontation or emotionally heavy situations. This New Moon energy can help us learn by taking us out of our comfort zone and making us uncomfortable. So even if a situation is tense it can lead us into psychological healing.
This New Moon is harmonizing with Jupiter, Neptune, and Pluto as well. We can quickly discover support and motivation from within to accomplish our goals, as this energy has our back and can help us set goals. It gives us the drive and imagination to make things work.
Still, during the New Moon loving Venus is forming a tense Square to Pluto, the planet of transformation and lord of the underworld. Goddess, Venus also squares off with over the top Jupiter! These influences can cause major disruptions, which can lead us into exploring our true motivations. What makes us tick! With the TRUTH out of the bag, we can understand the deeper meanings of any challenging situation that comes our way.
It’s important to keep ourselves in check when it comes to exaggeration, so we shouldn’t go out of our way to seek approval, love, or more meaning in our lives, or we can blow things way out of proportion. We can overstate, boost, and brag. As we express ourselves and our feelings in a big way. Watch for doing things in excess and stirring up drama just to get attention, as we can give certain situations much more time and energy than their worth. We might think we can get noticed through exaggerating, but this will surely backfire.
These Cosmic transits can also magnify or boost our insecurities, which means we can feel suspicious, jealous, or paranoid. Socially the interactions we have can be intense and can provoke tense feelings with those involved. Any relationship drama that comes up can get in the way of our goals with our lovers or partners. Our financial affairs can also have major highs and lows, big wins, or big losses, so choose wisely!
Warning Possible Triggers: You May Need to Skip this Part if you are Sensitive!
The Covid19 Virus is surging strongly right now, as Astrologically it’s peaking from the long-term Saturn/Pluto and Jupiter/Pluto Conjunctions that have been occurring all year long! Now with somany planets in Scorpio, and Eclipse Seasonunderway things are out of control! The energy of the Zodiac Sign Scorpio and Eclipse Season, both are about Endings! However, it also helps us to rebuild and manifest a new way of handling the Virus.
As we figure out how to get vaccinations out to the masses, we need to be extremely careful! Protect the younger, older, and vulnerable folks! Please take the necessary precautions we’ve been warned about repeatedly to help bring this surge down. And please just wear your mask around other people! The good news is the Cosmic influences that helped bring the Virus in are now finally over! So once we get past Eclipse Season, we will start to see a major shift and even more so into the New Year. As we get through the final dramatic months of 2020, do your best to be extra careful and work together.
The Sun shifted into the sign of transformation, and mystery, Scorpio. “Scorpio Season” begins Oct 22, 2020, and runs through Nov 21, 2020.
The mysterious Scorpio energy is known for being darker and often misunderstood. Symbolically, Scorpio energy drives us to explore the depths of the soul. As the Sun’s light exposes the truth, and all that has been hidden, repressed, secret, or ignored tends to come out. So if you’ve got any skeletons in your closet, clean it up now, or you might just get found out.
The Sun in Scorpio is a time of emotional depth, intimacy, and transformation. Therefore, whatever is fake or false is usually brought out and exposed for what it is, including conversations and betrayals. Superficial anything doesn’t work during this time, because we want the real deal. We need to know that people are genuine and authentic.
Scorpio is the detective of the Zodiac, so the Sun’s influence in Scorpio can have you feeling more suspicious and even a bit paranoid. We are more interested in getting to the bottom of things, as we want to uncover what’s hidden, suppressed, or unknown! It’s a time when we see the unseen with our uncanny Psychic abilities. So we can pick up on the energies around us very quickly. Even if we don’t trust our intuition, the signs are more evident than usual during this time. We enjoy things and people that are odd, taboo, or different in this energy, so anything plain or average is boring.
During Libra season over the last month, we worked towards being fair and equal. During Scorpio season, we accept the fact that life isn’t fair and understand that pain and suffering are part of the process of being human, and to truly evolve we must transform ourselves, which means we must end something to begin something anew.
Scorpio energy can have us feeling sexy, mysterious, and provocative. But we tend to be more secretive, as we feel more passionate, strong-willed, and often intense. This can be a time of transformation and healing.
The shadow side of Scorpio energy can have us feeling more jealous, paranoid, obsessive, and manipulative. We can become obsessed over an issue or problem, and try to figure it out repeatedly, and get nowhere as we continue to dig deeper to learn or understand someone or something. So we may not know when enough is enough or when to quit!
Mental Mercury is also in the sign of Scorpio through Oct 27, due to Mercury’s Retrograde (backward) cycle. It travels back through the sign of Libra on Oct 27 through Nov 9, and then goes back into Scorpio from Nov 10 – 30. So we will have a lot more Scorpio energy to contend with!
This Scorpio energy is about rising from the ashes after something ends. We have fallen in some way or have had to give up, like the tales of the Phoenix! It’s a time of rebirth and resurrection, as we rise to specific challenges and above what has fallen around us! Scorpio Season affects all Zodiac Signs, as this energy is something we can learn from. It’s about regeneration and claiming our lives back, as we start to rebuild after the wild and crazy year we’ve had. It’s the best energy to renew ourselves under, because Scorpio energy teaches us how to do what needs to be done, as it gives us extreme focus and stamina. We can be more driven and motivated to take care of business.
By the time we get to the end of November, and the end of Scorpio Season, hopefully, we will have some plans in place, since most of 2020 will be spent taking life day by day, and just surviving which is so exhausting. May this Scorpio Season illuminated by the Sun’s energy show you the way, and help you get through.
The Harvest Full Moon or Warrior Moon comes together Thursday, October 1st, 2020.
A Full Moon creates emotional energy, so this is when the issues in our life peak, which can be a good or bad situation. This lunation is the first of two Full Moon’s that occur in October, the second one being a Full “Blue Moon” on Halloween!
The Full Moon occurs in the sign of Aries this time around, Aries is ruled by Mars, and Mars is also transiting its home sign of Aries right now, also in Retrograde! In other words, this is a extremely passionate, heated up, fiery, driven kind of energy, so use it for good! There is revealing information coming through that can be deeply meaningful, but we should wait to take any action on whatever we learn. Just until the Full Moon energy wears down by the weekend.
The Full Moon is a time when the truth is revealed; as the light illuminates the planet, it also brings out uncomfortable feelings, but truth-telling is always on the menu as well as some insomnia! Which, by the way, is the number one question I get from clients and blog readers every month, “Why am I not sleeping?” Well, that’s easy; it’s the Full Moon energy that keeps us wired and awake.
It’s a time when our feelings tell us what’s happening, so our intuition is super strong, and we can experience epiphanies or A-ha moments, and Psychic visions or feelings can occur awake or asleep. This particular Full Moon serves as a reminder to think about how we treat ourselves in our close relationships or partnerships. There can be new moments of awareness or revelations about our roles as leaders so that we may have strong feelings of independence, and our ability to start or initiate something is much more on point.
Helping these energies along is a strong connection between relationship-ruling Venus and Pluto, the planet of transformation. This influence can help us be more strategic, but to the point about money and relationships, Venus turns which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, just expect people to tell you how they really feel!
This Full Moon is connected firmly to the Mars/Saturn Square, as it can cause significant aggression and anger to erupt suddenly without little warning, especially with authority figures or those with power or control over us. Saturn, at its basic, is about the rules and responsibilities. In a tense, Square, there can be frustrations, agitation, and anger, again with anyone trying to exert power or control over us. And anyone is fair game! The emotions we hold deeply have been building up over the last month, and they can suddenly be exposed in one way or another. The Full Moon is when the Sun and Moon tensely oppose each other, which can feel intense. We’ve already been experiencing this for the last few days, with Fires still raging and all kinds of explosive crime and behavior. Most folks, will be challenged to not go off if they get angered for any reason.
However, if we focus on ourselves, we can feel empowered and set an excellent example for others. In turn, this kind of behavior can inspire others to do something for themselves. We need to be asking ourselves some questions under these energies. Who have you been taking care of, and where are you focusing most of your time and energy? Have you been coming from a self-centered place, by only helping someone for your own selfish reasons? Time to make it right! Remember the truth will indeed set you free in this kind of energy!
It’s a high energy kind of Full Moon, as we can feel extra energized and driven to begin or end certain situations. Being so focused can be distracting, so we may not realize that we’re dealing with something or someone toxic! Under this fiery Full Moon, we are more likely to take action due to feeling agitated. It’s essential to be mindful of this energy and harness our own personal power without abusing it, to avoid letting things get out of control.
But Full Moons always magnify existing problems, so it’s vital to decide how you want to move forward peacefully. This influence can help us get out of a bad situation that is toxic or abusive. If you need to express your feelings, this energy can help you be brave. Which, hopefully, enables you to get out of bad situation or relationship. But be careful, it’s still very explosive energy. So if you need to end something, be prepared and ready.
This lunation also activates other cosmic bodies that can set our tempers off, so there can be errors in judgment due to feeling extra sensitive and getting more easily upset. It creates a highly charged-up atmosphere, and people can be very impulsive. It can be a chaotic feeling Full Moon and energy! Some folks can act like they have no sense, and will react without much forethought, and can suddenly lash out. This energy, unfortunately, can cause outrage, rebellion, and tempers to flare at its worst. There can be more rioting and violence around the protests.
However, as this Full Moon tension builds and the frustrations rise, it’s important to remember the best way to handle it. Which is to Let Go and release all that pent up anger by being OPEN, FLEXIBLE, and adapting to the changes that are happening around you. Please don’t get into power struggles, ego battles, or disputes; it is not worth it! Remember that when people are this riled up, they can’t hear you. They are deaf! Especially, if they suffer from any natural Impulsivity issues, because they’re too busy talking over you or thinking about their next sentence, it won’t be about your opinions or ideas under these energies. So most of the time, it’s just best to walk away from arguments for the next few days. Take a breath and a walk, if you feel yourself getting upset or agitated just simply get away from the situation as fast as you can to cool down.
Harness this powerful Full Moon energy over the next few days, and don’t forget this is a powerful time to “Set Intentions” with the Moon’s energies, just simply write put a wish list of what you want to release or let go of in your life, and then add what you would like to see come in to your world. Your dreams and desires. To learn more about how to Set Intentions, click the link below.
This is an opportune time to ask the Universe to release whatever energies you need to let go or get rid of, or what doesn’t serve you anymore. The intentions that are set during a “Full Moon” will set you on the right path towards your hopes, wishes, and desires. This is the best time to do some energy work and release old pains and experiences that have held you down or blocked you up! It’s time to get the old stuff out so the good stuff can come in!
During the Full Moon, we often experience an energy shift, so we must release the old energies to open new energies up, so we can get on the right path in life that will help us bring new and fresh energy along with it.
What to Release under a Full Moon:
* Lower energies
* Negative patterns or bad habits
* Unhealthy situations or relationships
What to work on during the Full Moon:
*Letting go of both the people and situations that aren’t working anymore. And sometimes this is just an attitude or thought
*Clearing space for new energies to come in
*Being GRATEFUL for what you already have and what will be
This is the time when you should have a conversation with the Universe, (your higher power, Spirit Guides, Angels, elders, God, etc!) whatever you believe in! Ask for the “Full Moon” to help illuminate the path that leads you towards your deepest desires. You can simply ask to be led down a path towards your dreams and goals during your Setting Intentions rituals.
Patience is important! Remember to allow the time needed for the Moon to light the way, as it doesn’t always happen right away. But remember often this kind of work is magical and sometimes the things you want or ask for just show up! The “Full Moon” illuminates the truth and is symbolic for helping us see all that has been hidden, secret, tucked away, or suppressed. So ask for the truth to be revealed during this time.
What if you don’t know how to “Set Intentions” under the Full Moon. Follow the steps below to learn how:
Step One: Clear your Sacred Space
Clear the energy of the area or room you’re using to do your Full Moon work. You are simply calling in positive energies to work with. Burn some Sage or Incense and clear the energies. Think about where you’re going to perform your energy work. Because we create an energy vortex wherever we sit, sleep or do spiritual work! This is why you feel so comfy in your favorite chair, it feels safe and secure because you have created an energy vortex in that spot or space.
Step Two: Set the Atmosphere
Set the mood or your Full Moon Ritual. Burn some special incense, light some candles (colors do have different meanings) and play some mood or ambient music that helps you feel spiritually connected to the Universal energy you see tapping into. This can be a very different experience for everyone. Just makes sure to use whatever tools make you feel calm and peaceful. Because that’s the kind of energy you want to bring into your life.
Step Three: Let It Out
You’re going to need a notebook, paper, or a journal and something to write with. Writing pen to paper can be magical! It helps sync up the mind and body! Many try using their electronic devices but it just doesn’t seem to have the same effect. But to each their own. Then you write about what you’d like the Universe to bring in and remove. Simply write your deepest truths, wishes, and questions down. Think about what energies you’re trying to let go of and release. Write the letter like as if you were talking to an old friend. Think about what energy you’re trying to push out of your life, and what energy you’re trying to bring in, and be detailed but don’t go overboard.
It’s important to be patient and allow your work to take ahold during this process. And just know sometimes things take time. Often we just miss the signs and messages the Universe is sending because they are so subtle. They are not always so earth-shattering signs or A-ha moments that show up like a lightning bolt! More often it’s simply a bird landing in your backyard that has some sort of message or meaning for you, look up Animal Totems. You can hear a song on the radio that seems to have special meaning just for you, or see a movie and a scene seems to resonate with you on a deep personal level. Look for signs on everyday life and they just magically appear. If you pay attention and see everything as a sign, you will start to quickly pick up on what the Universe is trying to tell you! Messages and signs are always everywhere for us.
As you’re doing this work and Setting your Intentions, here are some helpful questions you can think about, for example: Ask for what you are choosing to come into your life? What changes would you like to see happen? What are you or should you be letting go of? How do you feel about what is happening in your life now? What do you want to release? Think about your long-term goals and your future, and what energy you’d like to create over the coming months.
Step Four: Visualize what you’re Creating
Now you’re going to visualize what you have written. First get comfortable again, preferably in the same place and read what you wrote very closely. Then close your eyes and take some long deep breaths, in your nose and out your mouth. See the energy of your heart center, (that’s in the middle of your chest, not your actual pumping heart) but your spiritual heart or commonly referred to as the “Heart Chakra.” Next, Visualize yourself in what you’re trying to create or manifest. For example; see yourself living in that new home, falling in love with a Soul-Mate, driving that new car, (just smell that new car smell!) Don’t just think about what you want, but make sure and “FEEL IT,” as if you are really experiencing what you’re visualizing. If this makes you laugh, cry, scream, or whatever, then go with it.
Step Five: Gratitude
It’s very important to work on releasing what you don’t want in your life during a Full Moon, but it’s equally as important to not leave a VOID after you are done. So you need to fill that space from releasing with gratitude. Being grateful for what you have and around the work you are doing. When we focus on what it is we don’t have we are focusing on “Lack”, and that will only bring in the things we don’t want. Remember what we put our attention on is what will show up! So instead think and feel the things you are grateful for in your heart. Think about what you already have and be grateful for that. Then you will attract more of that can of energy, which in turn brings in some better feeling stuff! Don’t be held captive by your pains and past trauma, call in the good stuff folks. Yes, you deserve something good, wonderful and amazing!
Allow the Universe to show you what path to follow over the next month, and let the Full Moon light up the way! Hopefully, you’ll at the very least be put on a path towards what you truly desire, all while letting go of what you don’t need anymore, it’s truly miraculous.
Starting September 22nd marked the official beginning of the Autumn Equinox. We have shifted into a completely different cosmic energy, but there’s nothing to fear, as we have already been through one of the roughest years of our time. But this energetic shift will help ease tensions and bring some calm into the mix.
This Equinox is the turning point of the year and marks when the Sun shifts into Libra, and this is also called “Libra Season.”
Libra’s energy is all about finding balance and learning how to live in harmony with others, but particularly in our relationships. This sign teaches all of us to look at life from a more compassionate view, as we strive to be more accommodating. Generally speaking, this sign helps us to be the best versions of ourselves that we can be.
As the Sun shifts into Libra on the Equinox, we finally get the opportunity to experience something new or different. This shift in energy will help us focus on allowing our goals to meet there fullest potential. The Cosmic stew of energies we’ve been going through has already been difficult on Mother Nature, so she is still in a massive cleansing process that was initiated by the Eclipses over the summer. Not to make light of the devastation, we also must look at all sides to any given situation while under the Libra influence. So even though the wildfires have been destructive, there is one good thing that comes out of this tragedy, a light at the end of the dark tunnel, and that is the Fires are also cleansing and clearing away old energies. From the ashes, new life will submerge over time, and new beginnings will happen physically but also energetically!
As the Equinox occurs, you’re invited to work on balancing your life, and find some kind of stability along the way. However, as we work on getting our equilibrium back, we still have to take on some life lessons at first. Try to accept the challenges, and understand this is a process we must go through. The Universe will test and challenge you, but these lessons often help us evolve a grow in the process.
Starting September 22nd, the Cosmic energies slow down. So as we enter this major shift, balance will finally start to happen. This influence gives us those moments where we can catch our breath and take a break from time to time. The planet has been going through a lot. Now is the time when the Universe starts a recovery process, even if it lasts longer than usual. This shift serves as a reminder to deal with the things we had to put off, (probably due to the pandemic) or to get caught back up with the things we just couldn’t get done. The last quarter of 2020 will be a time to get caught up as much as you can.
As new paths open and important information is revealed, our perspective will shift, as the Equinox’s energies can help smooth things over as we adjust. It is a very important time to embrace all that is happening now and not hide from it. So trust your intuition and inner voice to guide you through this time.
Many of you are feeling drained or exhausted from being locked down or held back. But once you get on the right path, things will start to calm down. Our creativity will be super strong and potent during this energy shift, so take some time to reflect on what you have been doing this year, so you can create what you want to happen during the last part of 2020.
Don’t look back, as the past is behind you now, and focus on creating a bright and amazing future instead. Visualize your future (Pandemic Free), and see what you want to happen next in your life, personal finances and then the trick is to feel it before it happens. In other words, see yourself happy and experiencing the things you desire, and with your heart and soul just simply feel it!
The energy rolling in now should help you with the more difficult issues we’re facing. This shift kicks off the beginning stages of recovery for ourselves and our planet. Just give all of this energy time to come together, and allow these new energies to flow just where they need to. Try to stay as positive as you can and focus on what is to come, because it truly makes a difference, even if things don’t appear that way at first. Patience is key to your success now.
Mars the planet that rules over our motivation, physical actions, assertive drive, ambition, passion, war, and sexual drive shifts signs on June 26, 2020, into more fast-paced, impulsive Aries all the way through January 6th, 2021. That is a really long time for Mars to be in one sign. Its extended stay in trailblazing Aries is due to its upcoming Retrograde phase, which starts on Sept. 9th and runs through Nov. 13th.
Mars is exceptionally comfortable in its home sign of Aries, as it’s ruler naturally. Our energy levels are stronger than usual, and we are more spontaneous, forward-looking, and bolder, and courageous under its influence, as it tends to get things moving so we are more active and confident. If we just follow our instincts, we can get things done super fast and precisely.
As Mars shifts into Aries this week, you’ll notice a definite surge in energy, motivation, and initiative. You don’t need anyone else to light that fire under you to get you going when Mars is transiting Aries. Talk about the ultimate self-starter. With this competitive, entrepreneurial energy in the sky, you will definitely want to begin a personal project. In addition to the remarkable energizer battery of Mars in Aries, you will also notice plenty of courage and fighting spirit. You will not back down from anything or anyone! Just remember, neither will others so expect an argument or a fight if there’s a situation you and someone else butt heads over. At least it will be an honest battle, though as Mars in Aries is not going to allow us to hide anything especially, our agendas.
After all, Mars is the planet of war, anger, and challenges, especially in its own sign of Aries the Warrior! So it tends to cause tension, restlessness, and anxiety for some. However, this also can be a very positive influence that gives us lots of energy. But we must be careful not to lose our cool. We have a strong competitive spirit as our goal is to win! But what are you battling for.? What are you winning in the end? Is it worth it? You are going to need to ask yourself these questions, as this influence can help us stay on task and motivated, but it also can cause impulsive behavior that can get people all fired up over much of nothing! Like things haven’t been heated-up enough out there! This energy could really make protests explode even more so, however with the Virus spreading like wildfire again, we are made to stay in once again, so we are going to need ways to get this energy out, so we don’t let it turn into anger.
Mars in Aries gives us a warrior-like attitude, therefore, its influence can spark up debates and discussions where we feel compelled to share our opinions and defend ourselves. Social media has already been exploding due to our current ongoing circumstances, so many of you will be sharing your frustrations, and there will be more arguing, of course. But remember, ask yourself if it’s worth it or not first.
When it comes to your sex life, expect a boost in libido. With Mars in Aries, we want immediate gratification and will do whatever it takes to get our needs met. There’s so much dynamic energy around this placement that you may wonder if there’s anything to worry about. Well, as with any planetary alignment, there’s a positive expression and a not so positive one. When Mars in Aries shines its light, we become fearless warriors or innovative pioneers. When it’s operating in the shadow, however, we can be rash, impatient, and selfish.
The darker side of Mars being in the sign of Aries is that we can sometimes be impatient, arrogant, impulsive, and self-centered! But if we can remember to take time out’s and not let our tempers get lit up so fast, as we can also be more authentic, enthusiastic, and straightforward. But we can also be quite narcissistic and not think of others as much, so don’t expect folks to be so worried about your “feelings”, as this is a time when we think ahead, and we are not as worried about the past. This can be challenging with the Sun and mental Mercury both in the sign of Cancer through the end of July! The sign of Cancer is all about being sensitive and worrying about other folk’s feelings, so the polar opposite of Aries and Mars, both. So we can feel pushed and pulled or even just reminded that we should care, but at the same time, we may not be feeling it!
If we pay attention and harness this Mars in Aries energy, we can be so productive and get so much done. Just remember people tend to take impulsive actions during this time, so often there are mistakes, mishaps, and accidents. It may take a week or so to get used to this energy, so we need to be a little extra careful, and take some extra precautions to stay safe, as some people are going to get more easily frustrated and aggressive under its influence. If we can take on a strategic kind of attitude, we can plan ahead and get things done in ways we never thought of, we have to be mindful and remember to not react without thinking things through first, which is always the most difficult challenge with Mars in Aries. Under the tense and frustrating energy we have already been dealing with due to COVID and the rioting, we must work extra hard to keep our cool and make sure that things remain calm, otherwise, it could be a bigger mess than we are already in.
The Sun in Cancer begins in the North with the Sumer Solstice on June 20, 2020, when the days and nights are equal in length in light and dark.
With the Summer Solstice arriving the Sun also shifts into the protective, sensitive sign of Cancer. The Solstices are important because they open doorways of energy that has become known as the Summer and Winter Seasons, and these special days hold some magical energies we can use to manifest what we want in our lives. The Sun will remain in Cancer until July 22, 2020.
While the Sun is in Cancer for the next month we are more focused on family time, and the days begin to grow longer which is good for making memories. This sign influence means we tend to stick close to home as we have a stronger need for security with our home and family.
Eclipses tend to bring out the truth, as the things that are hidden, repressed, secret, or unknown are revealed. This is a great vibe for teamwork even with the Sun in more private Cancer. If our expectations are unreliable or unrealistic than we will probably be let down. Keep yourself grounded and in your thoughts strong and in reality, it is for the best during this time. With Mercury in Retrograde this time around, this might be more challenging than usual.
The Cancer energies aren’t always as sensitive as people portray it to be, we can also feel quite ambitious like the other Cardinal signs, so we are more tenacious about reaching our business and professional goals. It’s important to take care of your social obligations, as all your activities outside of your home will be more successful when you have a strong and solid family and home base to fall back on. This helps keep everything on schedule.
When the Sun’s in Cancer, our thoughts naturally turn inward. This is a great time to reach out to loved ones that feel safe, and perhaps plan a very low-key get-together, or maybe finish up any home projects you’ve been needing to get done. We are looking for safety and protection around what we are creating, so we want to surround ourselves with what is secure and familiar.
The sign of Cancer is ruled by the Moon and so we can become a bit lunatic-like under its influence, especially if we are worn down, emotionally hurt, lonely, or overwhelmed. Our moods can go up and down rather quickly, so for the next month, we become more intimate with the waxing and waning of the Moon and all her phases.
Our everyday lives are experienced on a much deeper emotional level with the Sun in Cancer, (no matter your sign.) This is a time when we can worry more about our emotional security, so we are naturally more concerned with the things that affect us personally. Even if we are interested in what’s happening in the world, we tend to want to protect and nurture those that are close to home more so than usual.
Cancer is the Zodiac Sign of the Mother, which is representative of water, so things like coziness, closeness, emotional bonding, (or bondage, hehe!) are experienced with more depth at this time. This can be quite evident in our everyday lives, as we can be more reactive and impulsive when it comes to our emotional connections with people and places.
This is a highly emotional time in if itself, and depending upon how the other planets in the Cosmos are connecting to the Moon and Sun of course. But our initial reaction is usually to take the road less traveled with the Sun in Cancer. We will do whatever it takes to not be exposed because we tend to feel more vulnerable, including sidestepping direct confrontation, unless of course, we are doing the confronting. So if we lose control we can get a little crazy.
This charged up emotional energy tends to trigger some of our most tender spots, so we can become illogical if we get frustrated or feel picked on. It’s just best to not let yourself go there, as our emotions take the wheel for the next month. It can prove difficult to be objective or as open-minded during this time, as we can be a bit pessimistic in our way of thinking, (especially, with Mercury in Retrograde as well). It’s helpful to work at keeping those thoughts more positive, and we may have to really work at it at times.
We are tapped into the realm of Cancer with the Sun is in this sensitive sign for the next month. So we are at our most powerful when using the power of emotion, with people and our experiences. This gives these are connections more depth and meaning that come from the heart which is good practice for us to learn anyway. Work on being more kind and compassionate while the Sun is in Cancer.
Enjoy your Summer and Happy Birthday all my beautiful Crabs people, Cancers! ~Ruby
Rubys Astro Update A Full Moon & Eclipse Season Begins
For All Zodiac Signs
Friday afternoon on June 5th, 2020 the Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse occurs in the sign of Sagittarius, at 15 degrees.
Full Moon Peak Times by Time Zone
3:12 PM EST 2:12 PM CST 1:12 PM MST 12:12 PM PST 8:12 PM London
Full Moons are about relationships and a Lunar Eclipse pushes us to look more deeply at our needs, lacks, and wants. This help us balance the Moon in Sagittarius and the Sun in Gemini energies. Sagittarius represents the higher mind, and Gemini the lower mind. Sagittarius energy is all about the adventure and thirst for knowledge, and ideas that help us expand our minds, as it teaches us to listen more to our intuition and to think in a bigger and broader way. Gemini energy is more interested in the here and now, and can help us to feel more comfortable with where we are in the present moment, in our own community and neighborhood. This Sagittarius energy wants us to explore and go beyond our normal boundaries.
Striking a balance between these Sun and Moon energies can be quite helpful during the Full Moon cycle. The Lunar Eclipse is about communication, attitude, and our sense of adventure. With these energies building up inside of us, now is the time when the Cosmos is pushing for us to let out our emotions. Later on, once this all is done, we will understand more, but for now, it can be extremely difficult to just not express our feelings, as they need to be let out.
There can be an inner crisis of consciousness, and a moment where we suddenly are made aware of a part of our lives we just have not been happy with. This influence allows us to explore what we need emotionally. This can be quite a challenging time for relationships, as they are either broken down or made even stronger. Whatever happens, we can feel quite emotionally charged up so this can lead to some Full Moon drama! Full Moon’s are a time of truth, and we can experience some sort of Ah-Ha moment, or epiphany and suddenly be made aware of something, often this about what is lacking in our lives. This knowingness or understanding can help to motivate us to take some positive actions, although the path getting there can be chaotic.
The Moon is involved in several challenging connections during its Full Moon phase. Like a tense square to fiery Mars in Aries, so our anger and passion can be fueled by this energy, and if we get emotional we can get quite upset.
The Moon is also opposite the planet of love & values, Venus in its Retrograde phase and Gemini. This can be a challenging time for couples and relationships, starting June 3rd through June 7th. Lessons are being handed out to even the strongest of relationships. It’s a time of patience with both lovers and friends. So if you are already committed to any relationship, be it personal or professional and you’ve already been having problems, this Eclipse can cause sole problems. Now for some folks, it can potentially end a relationship, usually, it’s the ones that need to be done in the first place.
On a global level anger can escalate quite quickly, and we can experience feeling angry and even sort of sad. There can be higher rates of crime and violence during this time. The weather can get rather pumped up as well, because whenever there’s is a lot of frustration among the masses, usually, the weather starts to get destructive! So there might be bad storms, hurricanes, tornadoes, and even earthquakes. The Eclipse influence brings up these angry feelings to the forefront, especially if we’ve been sitting with these feelings and just brewing for a while.
If you notice you are on the edge of losing your cool, find a healthy way to release that energy! We still are going to be under the Full Moon influence, which is a time to let go and release the feelings and things that are no longer working. Also, you can do some things to help keep you calm, by shifting your focus to things like exercise, meditation, and energy healing work like Reiki, and most importantly self-care. It’s all too easy to lose our tempers with a loved one, or we may end up having to deal with someone else who’s upset and take on their energy! If you’re out and about just remember people are already on edge. But through Astrology, you know, and that is a powerful thing, my friends. Just by understanding what’s is happening and why can make such a huge difference in how you handle and work through this energy because you already know.
Love Can Be Strange
The Lunar eclipse also opposes lovely Venus. Pay attention folks, Venus is in Retrograde currently, so you should be careful whom you get romantically involved with if you are single.you can end up lowering your standards if you get too lonely and get involved with someone who’s toxic and not a true soul mate, but a life lesson instead!
Also, Venus in Retrograde often brings back old friends and lovers, this is to work some sort of Karma out usually, so you both can have closure. This doesn’t mean because an ex-lover shows up that you are destined to be together, usually, it’s quite the opposite. But a very soulful meeting can happen, and some of you might find a soul mate as well. Be extra careful and commit to nothing until after Venus and Mercury are out of Retrograde.
The Cosmic lovers, Venus & Mars are also in a tense position together. During the Eclipse this can amp up conflicts, anger, and impulsive behavior! Women are more susceptible to losing their cool and getting irritated than the men right now.
During the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse, we need to try to make some extra time and effort to promote peace and harmony no matter what we are doing. But that good feeling energy out there, filled with love and compassion. Being patient can be quite important, as it helps stop frustrations from growing out of control.
Focus on one task at a time, and concentrate all your energies on it, rather than falling into the heavier energies of the Eclipse as it can take up most of your time and energy. Staying busy doing tasks will help you work through your frustrations, which makes it a good time to organize your life, declutter, and make space so that better energies can come into your life.
All about Eclipse Season
During an Eclipse Season, there are two or three Eclipses, and it lasts for around 36 days. During this time the Full Moon’s are part of the Lunar Eclipse and the New Moon is part of a Solar Eclipse. This Eclipse Season starts on June 1st and ends on July 8th. These energies will be felt most during this time. There are three Eclipses this time around,
June 5th – Full Moon in Sagittarius – Lunar Eclipse
June 21st – New Moon in Cancer – Solar Eclipse
July 5th Full – Moon in Capricorn Lunar Eclipse
If you happen to have a Birthday fall during or around the Eclipses, this next year can be full of interesting twists and turns and full of exciting changes. Eclipse Seasons are always full of strange energy, as out of the ordinary experiences just seem to happen and often there are some shocking surprises along the way as well. But remember good surprises occur as well. These influences can put us on a path we have no choice but to go down, but these are strong lessons we must learn to grow from. And usually, they are a necessity to help us become whom we are meant to be. Eclipses are interesting as they don’t seem to have any rhyme or reason to them, some folks can experience life-changing events while others experience nothing different or out of the ordinary. This is not about luck or curses, it because each of us has our own unique experiences on this journey through life, and the energies of the Eclipses are going to affect us the way they were destined to.
Eclipse Season is usually unpredictable, this energy can bring us to our breaking point as the pressure builds. We may have strong reactions that we didn’t even see coming or expect, so stay mindful of how you are reacting, and sometimes no reaction is the best statement you can make. Many of you will experience some sort of random Ah-Ha moment. Often both situations are happening all at once. Eclipses are intense and often they put us through some seriously challenging lessons that usually would take a much longer time to go through, so we are being thrown into the pressure cooker and expected to rise above any challenges we face. Things like relationships that you might have thought were going to work out, suddenly end fast, or a project you have been working on for a very long time that was about to take off suddenly has issues, and is held back now to get something fixed. The bottom line is even if we feel like we have everything all worked out, this Eclipse energy can leave us feeling chaotic and out of control if we let it.
However, don’t worry and fear this upcoming Eclipse Season, because the change that is being thrust upon us needs to happen for a reason, so it will in one way or another. Destiny is taking a hand and fate is in control. Even though this first Eclipse Season of the summer can be challenging at times, it also can bring in some much-needed positive changes, especially after it’s over it occurs.
Have a Blessed Full Moon Be Well & Stay Safe ~Ruby
For All Zodiac Signs Happy Birthday to all you Bulls!
How does this energy affect you?
While the Sun is in the sign of Taurus we may feel more sensual, receptive and determined. This shift causes the energies to slow down. The energy of this sign can help us to be more practical, grounded, and steady, which overall can be a great help with so many other heavy-hitting cosmic energies changing things up in 2020!
With the shift of the Sun in Taurus we get to take a moment and simply breathe. And we get to take a deeper look at tree he events unfolding around us, then we can look at complicated situations with some good old-fashioned common sense.
Taurus energy wants us to learn how to defend ourselves and resist things, but also how to love in a deeper, sensual, and more intimate way, and appreciate the physical world and all its beauty. The Zodiac Sign of Taurus is ruled by the Goddess of Love herself, Venus, for better or worse love is the most powerful energy there is after all. So we can be fiercely passionate and emotional during this time.
Over the next month, we tend to rely on what’s always worked in the past, and what’s tried and true. But we also need to move forward with the times. This influence is about integrating tradition with evolution in our lives. One thing about Taurus energy is we feel a stronger need to be more comfortable than usual. Take some time to set up space to Zen out, get all comfy and cozy for the next month and make sure you have somewhere safe to hang out. This cycle shows us what stability and substance can look like. We seem to be drawn to more practical matters now, so there’s not a whole lot of risk-taking going on.
However, mental Mercury is still in the sign of Aries, during this time, which is more motivating, as it keeps our minds working at a faster pace. The Sun in Taurus and Mercury in Aries might be a great mix of energies. It can give us the extra boost of energy and confidence we need, but also some reasoning skills so we don’t push too much. Either way with Mercury in Aries we have more get up and go, especially physically.
Under the Sun in Taurus, we have an opportunity to explore what we truly value and who we can depend on. And bring in this a Pandemic we’ve already had some time to do a little research. So we can pay more attention to what really matters in the material world, but sync our spirituality into it. This can be a lovely combination to work on balancing our Spirit, Mind, and Body.
As the Sun moves through this sign, we get to experience what it’s like to manifest our physical reality, as the seeds we plant take root. Our determination and need for security are quite strong during this time. Taurus energy is about loyalty, being comfortable, and using what’s been tried and true in the past, as we like sticking to what’s familiar. But the Mercury in Aries energy will help us look for new beginnings as well from time to time. We value the folks who have stayed by our side in good and bad times and will honor them more so during this time.
As the Sun moves through the sign of the bull, we get the opportunity to see the beauty in life. We’re more focused on the simple pleasures in life and how to feed the senses. Our senses are aroused and highly activated, so we can have a newfound appreciation for things like food, sex, music and entertainment, beauty, and anything that feels pleasurable! Being more repetitive and open to the things that make us feel fulfilled and alive can help us better appreciate life and the world. It’s a time to pause and stop long enough to “smell the roses”, rather than be in a hurry and pass things by. Being isolated won’t feel as difficult under this energy, so staying in will actually be more welcoming.
Enjoy all the beautiful things life has to offer while the Sun is in Taurus. Discover something beautiful about your life, find a new appreciation for those who love you.
The shadow side of Taurus energy is we can be more possessive and controlling, especially with our children and partners. We can be extremely stubborn and bullheaded, so it’s important to get out of our own way long enough and be willing to hear other people’s ideas and opinions.
While the Sun is in Taurus we should be making plans and setting goals that are built to last for the long-term. Put away something for a rainy day and for your future endeavors. This is not a good time to make life-altering decisions. Just plan for now, and maybe give it until the end of May to make your next big move. That’s when the energies will be a bit less dramatic anyway in 2020.
Hiya folks, I am just checking in on everyone! I hope you are being safe and are well during this very difficult time. I’m sending out Love & Light to all of you.
The planetary connections can help give us a source of comfort. Astrology helps us understand how the Cosmic influences are affecting us for the short and long term. This knowledge gives me peace of mind in the most difficult times, and my hope is through my April Astrology Forecast and Astro Blogs that they will help you feel the same way.
April will certainly continue to get a whole lot of attention this year as the Virus Peaks out in the US. It’s important to be together, even from a distance. With the COVID-19 Pandemic creating so much fear and devastation, our social interactions came to a screeching halt in March, so we are paying attention more than ever to what the Universe has in store for us next!
Over the next month or two, we will have to continue self-isolating, which means we are dealing with all of these Astrological energies alone in some way. If you play a big or small role in dealing with this Worldwide crisis, the bottom line is we are making history if we like it or not! We must help each other through it, and be brave. Don’t place too much energy into fear, but more so focus on your faith and or whatever source you believe in. This time to shall pass, and we all individually and collectively share our part in this story, which makes it even that much more important to be kind and respectful with one another.
This is an important time to see just how blessed we truly are, so we can make deeper connections to our loved ones. Please continue to practice some sort of healing, through sending out positive energies through meditation or prayer, or however, you want. Remember in ENERGY we are stronger together! This Virus does not care how old we are or what part of the world we are from. So sending out loving healing energies and good thoughts to everyone is so important at this time. Perhaps more so than ever!
Please continue to practice safe Social Distancing and Isolation, and continue to connect to your loved ones via social media of all kinds.
Many blessings to all. Be Safe & Well. ~Ruby
For All Zodiac Signs
April Astrology Forecast
April 3: Venus enters Gemini
The planet that rules over our relationships travels through this sign of information. This helps us meet interesting people and can bring fresh new energy and ideas into our relationships. Since we are already in self-isolation this is a good time to look up a class online and learn something new. Maybe take a class on something you have never done before, and acquire a new skill. Venus will actually be in the sign of Gemini for quite a while, until August 7th due to its upcoming Retrograde cycle that starts on May 13. It’s time to get rid of old ideas and routines and perhaps try something different. This is a time to change things up every so often in your relationships and around your finances.
April 3: Mercury conjuncts Neptune
Mercury rules over our thinking, communicating, and perception. Neptune’s influence symbolizes our imagination, spirituality, and deceptions. At its best, this is a strong imaginative duo that can help inspire us. The shadow side, can make us vulnerable and gullible and we can believe things that are simply too good to be true or that isn’t even real. It’s important to not believe what people tell you during this time and look into things first to make sure it’s the real deal.
April 4: Venus trines Saturn
This aspect can help stabilize our relationships. It brings in some safety and support from those that hold positions of power or authority. Take this time to socialize, and you might just find ways to advance both your personal and business relationships. This produces lots of good feeling vibes, so we can be better received by others. As things seem to go our way for the next few days.
April 4: Jupiter conjuncts Pluto
Jupiter the planet of luck and expansion conjuncts Pluto, the planet of evolution and transformation every 13 years. This is an extremely powerful energy and we can feel it strongly! We need to think about what we want to do with our lives, and what we want to accomplish. This big energy can have us feeling so incredibly powerful that it can help us get on the path towards something amazing!
April 7: Mars Squares Uranus
There will certainly be some big changes made suddenly or unexpectedly under this influence. So be ready or you can be caught by surprise. As the action planet, Mars gets some big messages from rebellious Uranus. You may feel like standing up for yourself or breaking free from people or circumstances. If you can go with the flow you can do well. Don’t let whatever is happening in the world throw you off balance, (I know easier said than done.) Use this fresh energy and any new ideas you have to form new plans. During this time get creative and innovative, andmost importantly be true to yourself.
April 7: Full Moon in Libra
The Full Moon this month is inrelationship ruled Libra, which means the Sun is in the opposite sign, self-serving Aries. As usual during a Full Moon, ouremotions are ramped up, and there’s a dynamic between self and others during this time. Pluto, currently in Capricorn forms a strong connection called a T-square to the Full Moon. This energy can make us feel intense and pressured, as this is a time when we need to let something go. This can be a person, situation, relationship, or just an old worn-out attitude.
April 11: Mercury enters Aries
The planet of communication Mercury enters bold, and inspiring Aries. This brings new insights and ideas that can help us make our plans or projects more interesting, which can lead us into new directions. This is a good time to connect with people, those who are of like mind that makes you feel more excited about life. This energy can encourage us to break free from unhealthy past habits, to embrace the future.
But we must keep in mind that Aries is known as the God of War. So do your best not to argue, or you could end up wasting your time and energy, and all of thosegreat ideas will never have a fighting chance to get off the ground. Instead, direct your energy towards meeting goals and reaching achievements. We’ve got through April 27th to take advantage of this influence and make something happen.
April 14: Sun squares Pluto
Forewarned is forearmed as they say! When the Sun in Aries squares off with Pluto in Capricorn in this day, some of you will have to deal with a person who wants to through their Power around, and they can be quite dominating. There seem to have their very own agenda or situation, so they may ask you to make some sort of change or adjustment to your plans just to serve their needs. Just be flexible when possible. It’s important to think about others and their needs and to listen more carefully than usual. But you still may be challenged by this influence, so make sure you are also empowering yourself along the way. Don’t be too stingy, but also don’t give everything away. If you take some time to think you’ll know what needs your attention the most.
April 19: Sun enters Taurus
With so many changes going on in the world right now this energy might be a welcome slow down. This is Taurus season, when the Sun enters the more stable sign of Taurus. This sign keeps the energies more practical and grounded, but it’s also very slow-moving, as it’s a lesson for all of us is to enjoy life and to stop and smell the roses. This influence can make us feel antsy even more so about self-isolating and being quarantined. So we need to make sure to continue social distancing. This energy can be quite helpful during a time when people are anxious and impulsive feeling, but they can overreact especially in complicated situations. It’s a good time to pay more attention to finances and our material security. This transit gives us the energy, and stamina to be more determined to succeed. Use these next four weeks to take care of your basic needs. Then you’ll have a more solid foundation to build upon, once it’s over.
April 21: Sun squares Saturn
Four times a year these two square off together, and this opens a door to some valuable opportunities that can help us rid ourselves of what is no longer needed in our lives, especially in our activities. This gives us a bird’s eye view of any plans or ideas we have that are impractical. We can see more clearly who is helpful in our world and who isn’t! This is a time to make smart, informed decisions that can help you hopefully in the long run.
April 22: New Moon in Taurus
This New Moon is in the sign of a more grounded and practical Taurus. This helps us slow down and take some time to get refocused. Our material things and what we value seems more important. Many of you will have already received your”Stimulus” money from the government around this time, so this energy can be quite helpful when it comes to sorting our finances. Take some time to plan your finances and think about how you want to make, spend, and save your money. This will be the right mix of energies to get ahead and maybe start something fresh when it comes to your finances. Also get organized and go through your things and sort out what you no longer use or need, perhaps recycle or donate stuff.
April 25: Mercury squares Pluto
The planet of communication in hot-headed Aries makes a tense square to Pluto in a Capricorn. This stirs up tensions, so it’s extremely important to recognize who or what is bugging you. Someone might be getting on your last nerve. People usually don’t get along so well under this energy. Even though you may be full of bright ideas, and you probably already know exactly what it is you want to do, you may have to deal with those who test or challenge you. Don’t allow this energy to take you off your path. Keep fighting to get what you want!
April 25: Pluto goes Retrograde
How do you use your own personal power? Some folks embrace it and want more. While it makes other people more nervous when they have it! And some people refuse to take control of anything in their life, even though they really need to. So when Pluto goes Retrograde, there are power shifts, and some people fall from a place of power, and there’s a lot of folks who make plays or try to gain power from others. This is a good time to think about what exactly you have control over, and where your personal power is held. Think about your goals during this cycle, and what you want to achieve! Over the next several months, while Pluto is in its Retrograde cycle we get an opportunity to think about how we want to move our life forward again once this cycle is over. What will make us happier and more fulfilled? Pluto will be retrograde until October 4th.
April 26: Sun Conjuncts Uranus
The Sun meets up with unpredictable Uranus today. This means many of you will begin some sort of journey that can help you let go of old habits, and negative ways of thinking about yourself. This is a time of liberation! This isn’t always the most stable of Cosmic energies. But you have more positive experiences if you roll with the tides of this influence. And don’t let any unexpected changes throw you off your game, keep a positive attitude. Keep your mind open and let the past be just that, in the past where it belongs. This is a time for new and innovative ideas. Most importantly be true to who you are, and make sure and allow other people to express their desires, and to show off their special gifts and talents as well.
April 27: Mercury enters Taurus
The planet of communication shifts into a mental slowdown when it enters the practical sign of Taurus. We can let this frustrate us, or take it as a time to pay attention to the important details of our lives. It’s time to feed the senses and delve into what is more pleasurable in life. It might be difficult to just settle into this energy, and really enjoy it due to how difficult things have been for all of us. But if you let the drama go and relax, you can experience something enlightening. Don’t let anyone push you or rush you into doing anything, if you will find a nice quiet place you can Zen out, somewhere you can listen to your higher self and your guides. Most decisions won’t need to be made immediately, but make sure you keep your choices on the practical side and go over all your options first.

The relationship planet Venus enters the sign of communication Gemini today, where it will transit for much longer than usual due to its upcoming Retrograde phase! Venus is in Gemini all the way through August 7th. During this time Venus will go Retrograde in Gemini from May 13 to June 25.
With Venus in Gemini, our curiosity is strong, and this can motivate us to get more involved romantically and socially with others. Variety and change are the main themes of this influence, it’s a time when we feel more sociable, interested, engaged, and especially communicative in our relationships and around anything to do with our finances.
We definitely can be more talkative and naturally curious under this influence. Our minds are whirling with juicy information along with a stronger than normal desire to share, however, we can get lost in conversation. We can be extremely indecisive but also aware, because we can read between the linesin any form of communication. This is a time when we like to multi-task as we’re motivated by our own curiosity.
Under this influence we are more flirty, so it’s no wonder this is a time of romance as we tend to date and hook up more. There’s a need for variety and diversity both, because our minds are so charged up that our hearts tend to follow, this keeps us engaged and interested in human contact and relationships. Since Venus is involved, this energy affects ourlove lives and relationships, and with it being in the sign of Gemini, we can be more fickle and picky. But due to the Virus going around, we need to be extra careful about meeting people in person for the time being, and this might be extremely challenging.
Feeling more attracted to words, we can bond very easily with others on mental levels, but we are also more sensitive to stimulus, touch, and other vibrations that are being sent out on the airwaves. So we can feel quite good with positive energies. But we can feel very bad if we get around anything negative. The energy of Gemini is very empathic and therefore we tend to feel everyone’s else’s emotions from time to time. So you may want to be extra cautious with taking on lovers, friends cans family members emotional baggage and protect ourselves energetically. Shields up folks! This is going to be extra challenging as well, since we are in the middle of a Pandemic right now. We need to keep a degree of compassion going to help those in need, but be able to stay in our own power and not meltdown, so we can take care of those we need us!
It is a good time to connect intellectually with others, but especially in our intimate relationships and with our partners, as we uniquely feel each other’s energies. But we can be more fun, whimsical, light and breezy, but also quite animated and often funny in our relationships. So we don’t enjoy getting to deep emotionally right now, and would much rather keep things above the surface which can be helpful during this hard time.
Emotionally we can be somewhat detached or distant, but we want to enjoy ourselves. When it comes to love we are more attracted to someone’s mind, so words are usually how things spark up between two people. We just bond with people more on a mental level, and we respect good conversations and intelligent work. But we can be quite picky when it comes to showing our affections and enjoying simple pleasures.
This is a strong time for sexual activities, and tantalizing communication, as a little erotica whispered in the ears of our lovers or partners can send them over the edge! But we should be picky with the people we meet up with, and not just get it on with anyone who’s willing. Don’t take a little extra attention or an open invitation as a clear sign you should be doing anything with just anymore. And remember social distancing folks.
Venus also rules over money it finances, and there are two sides to the sign of the twins, so Gemini’s duality comes into play. As our attitude towards our finances is more easy come, easy go. We can be cheapskates in one moment and spendthrifts in the next, all depending on how much mola we have in the moment. With Venus in intellectual Gemini, we tend to spend our money on experiences that will stimulate our mind, like with movies, books, apps online, music, and any writing materials. So even when money is low we manage to come up with just enough to watch something fascinating, or purchase a good book, or just have coffee with a friend. Communication is key under these energies.
