Mercury Retrograde June 2020


Mercury Retrograde June 2020

For All Zodiac Signs:

Here we go again! Those two dreaded words are once again upon us, as “Mercury Retrograde” starts on June 18th and runs through July 12th!


Mercury Retrograde is usually quite annoying to most people as it causes communication and technology breakdowns, and it can bring delays with travel and shipments. However, this isn’t one of my normal anti-Mercury Retrograde write-ups, as this particular backward cycle of Mercury can likely be somewhat of a good influence as well. I know it’s an interesting turn of events! But rather than just being mischievous the trickster planet, Mercury might bring in some luck for some folks, as it makes a strong connection to the star, Sirius! So even as annoying as Mercury Retrograde can be at least this time around it can bring some success and wealth as well.

This Mercury in Retrograde is in the sign of Cancer, (June 21st-July 22nd) so it does tend to affect those with Cancer astrological placements in their personal “Natal Astrology Charts” a bit more strong, but it runs much deeper than that and affects all of us no matter what Signs we have.

Now there will also be challenges with this Mercury in Retrograde cycle as it’s aspecting the Eclipse on June 21st. The first part of the actual Retrograde cycle starts on the 18th can be bumpy folks, with travel issues that include driving or flying especially. There will be delays and cancellations of all kinds in all situations. And computer and online problems that affect both personal and business can be a really big issue this go around. 



Three Phases of Mercury’s Retrograde cycle:

June 2 to 18 – Pre-Shadow period before Mercury goes Retrograde, as it slows down

During this Shadow phase, you get a sample of what part of your life this particular Mercury Retrograde will affect


June 18 to July 12 – Is the Actual Retrograde Phase

During the actual Retrograde phase, we deal mainly with miscommunications and annoying technical glitches, this time I think we’ll see a whole lot of folks get visited from both friends and lovers from their past, as Cancer’s ruling planet is the Moon and this brings up our past experiences to review and helps us tap into our unconscious mind. 


July 12 to 26 – The after Shadow phase that lasts until Mercury leaves Retrograde.

The after Shadow period is when things get wonky again at first, as we slowly get back to normal, at least we start to feel like we are mentally moving forward again and eventually back to some kind of normalcy. 


There are certain things we should be doing during a Mercury Retrogrades cycle, like starting something over or finishing up projects we’ve already started. Remember Mercury represents the mind and how we perceive information, so when in Retrograde it is a time to go back over things and reassess our lives. We should revise plans and personal goals perhaps, revisit anything that needs to be worked on, reconnect with loved ones, and business contacts, and redo just about anything if it helps, and usually, it does during this time. Refresh your life by doing things over again, and ask lots of questions. Otherwise, Mercury can be one giant headache for ya, especially if you try to push forward with brand-new plans, it just doesn’t usually work out so well. 

One of the best things you can do during any Mercury Retrograde cycle is to write things down, take notes, and do anything you can to remember, taking these simple actions can make this whole Mercury in Retrograde experience so much easier to get through and navigate. These little mistakes and going back and doing things over can lead to it being a time of growth and personal development. 

Mercury in Rx like all Retrograde planets, as is happening for a reason. This isn’t some new Astrological fad! Planets have always gone into Retrograde cycles and will continue to appear to move backward in the future every year. So every once in a while we get a chance to pause or stop and take a break from our overloaded plugged-in lives. 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 cycles energy takes hold is 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.

Here’s a basic list of Do’s and Don’t that can help you get through this rather confusing time. Make sure to share this Blog with others so they can be enlightened and understand all about Mercury Retrograde time.


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 personally. 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.

– Re-visit anything that needs fixing or even if you have a question. 

– Re-connect with folks that matter if you’ve had issues or not.

– Backup Computers and data that needs saved, it’s best to do this during the Shadow Phases.

– Re-organize your daily routines.

– Declutter

– Reflect and practice spiritual and energy work.

– Release what’s been holding you back or blocking you, let go of what no longer is working in your life, especially in your intimate relationships.


With Mercury in Retrograde cycles, we just have to be prepared is all, and it’s important to remember during this particular Mercury in Rx phase to do whatever it takes to REMEMBER things. These cycles are not meant to be as aggravating as they seem to be. In a perfect world, if we were to just take some time off from our everyday routines, (like we have been forced to do with COVID going around) it would be a much easier time to navigate. However, if you choose to go against this cycle’s natural flow you will probably get stressed out by something. It is a time to pause and reflect, as this helps us gain new perspectives and maybe realize something we had missed before. This cycle gives us the opportunity to fix things and get them right or the way we want them. Get prepared and try to do something to keep your mind busy during this Mercury in Retrograde cycle, it can help you get through it must more quickly.

Have a safe and easy going Mercury in Retro time folks,

Mercury in Aries – Moving Forward

Mercury the planet that rules over our thoughts, and how we communicate finally shifts out of the sign of Pisces, (after it’s extended stay due to Mercury’s Retrograde cycle) and into Aries on April 10th, 2020.

The Cosmic Messenger, Mercury has been in the watery sign of Pisces since early February of 2020. But it hasn’t been very comfortable there, as Pisces is Mercury’s detriment, which is not compatible in Astrology terms. Mercury is logical and practical, while Pisces energy can make people feel lost and confused. So we ended up in a mental fog filled with illusions and strong emotions. Mercury’s energy was weakened down quite a bit, and it influences caused our thinking to become unclear. Mercury is a factual and rational planet, and Pisces is about dreams and feelings. 

Then the energies became quite foggy and confusing in February when Mercury went Retrograde, which just made our fears and anxieties even worse. And the world sort of stopped around the 10th and 11th of March, when the reality of the Pandemic struck us here in the US. There were a lot of folks who at first just thought the whole ‘Virus” threat was the media hyping it up! So under Mercury in Retrograde in Pisces things were extremely confusing and misunderstandings were strong. It wasn’t taken seriously enough. Our minds were cloudy and illusions were all over the place, and this caused mistrust which leads to even bigger problems. 

Once folks started to realize the Covid19 Virus was indeed a real threat and that it was spreading quickly, they went into full-blown panic mode! More so than usual. Our fears turned into reality, and it became more difficult to step out of our fear and take care of business due to Mercury still in Retrograde, and this all took place also while the Sun was in Pisces as well. Again, the widespread misunderstandings and misinformation had everything to do with Mercury the planet of communication being in its Retrograde phase while in the sign of Pisces. It was a recipe for problems that were fueled by the Saturn/Pluto Conjunction as well.

Moving Now

Now that Mercury is finally entering the sign of Aries, the logic returns and we can have more clarity. Aries is a Fire Sign, so it casts an intellectual influence on us. Hopefully, this will help us take action or some initiative, and we can let go of our fears and our gloomy attitudes. Then we can take care of business and work on saving lives. With Mercury in Aries, we are ready to fight this deadly disease, after all, Mars rules over Aries and it is the “God of War!”

Thoughts turn into Action 

When Mercury is in Aries our minds move more quickly. In general, people act more impulsive under this energy, because they are in a big hurry and are not thinking rationally, when they’re moving so quickly! And we don’t necessarily think about our consequences first before we take actions, because we are more confident and courageous than usual.

Mercury is the planet that rules over communication, so while in Aries we can be more assertive when speaking or writing. Our opinions come from a place of ego more often under this energy, and our viewpoints are straight from the heart. So we tend to act and do whatever comes to mind when Mercury is in Aries. 

Mercury rules our thoughts, so our thinking is fast, and often our physical actions and bodies are moving faster than we can keep up with. 

The good news about Mercury being in Aries is we can rid the negativity that’s been plaguing our thoughts, as we search for ways to fix our problems. But together our thinking turns to look at the “whole picture”, and there will be a lot of people throwing out commands and giving out orders to move forward as quickly as possible! We are definitely more direct, bold, and energized under this energy, so we can gain clarity when we go after what we want and need now. 

However, there can be a downside to this energy, as with any Astrological influence. Because we are moving at such a rapid pace and are more spontaneous with our reactions and words, we also are more prone to conflicts or even arguments. Again, Aries is ruled by Mars, the planet of war, so frustrations, debates, ego battle, and anger will show up, especially if we feel not heard or blown off somehow. 

More importantly, while Mercury spends its time in warrior Aries, we should be focused on our plans and goals, but by reaching them over a period of time. More often than not we can start things very quickly, but also end them just as fast under this influence. Keep working and creating! This is a time for strategic moves. Stay aware and keep yourself centered and grounded, so we can approach others in a persuasive manner rather than try to overpower others. 

Mercury’s April Connections 

Mercury in Aries makes some rather interesting Astrological connections. 

  • On April 11, Mercury forms a nice Sextile to Saturn, this brings clear thoughts, and we enjoy working and taking care of responsibilities. This favors organization. 
  • When Mercury forms a Sextile with Venus in Gemini on April 18, and we are more charming and compassionate with others, and when we communicate.
  • On the same day, Mercury meets up in yet another Sextile this time with motivated Mars, and this gives us confidence and powerful thinking and communicating. This is a good time to be assertive with others, especially in your intimate relationships. Expressing ourselves more freely on the romantic front can be quite helpful. This can be with a partner or when are you want to seduce someone with words. 

Later in April, some intense connections are being made involving Mercury that can cause frustrations.

  • On April 25, Mercury makes a tense square with shadowy Pluto. Then on April 26, Mercury Squares off with giant Jupiter. This causes some folks to act arrogantly, and things tend to get exaggerated, especially what we are communicating! If we go overboard or push too hard there can be consequences. 
  • On April 27, Mercury will shift into the sign of Taurus. This will be great for finding ways to be comfortable and for nurturing those you love and care for with your words. But we can be overly expressive, brutally honest, and stubborn. 

In the meantime, focus on taken care of business and working hard. Enjoy the turn Mercury spends on Aries, and the extra confidence, but remember to give people space both physically and mentally. Take time outs every once in a while and simply catch your breath, so you can avoid little mishaps and mistakes. The world is about to move much faster, which will be a welcome change. 

Be Safe & Well ~Ruby

Eclipse Season – How to Handle it!

Eclipse Season!

We are in “Eclipse Season”, and a Lunar Eclipse occurs on January 10th, 2020.

Eclipses of the Sun and the Moon tend to shake things up and bring in powerful changes. Sometimes the changes that take place during an Eclipse may not be what you’d like or expect, but before you make any decisions or judgments wait for things to settle down first and after the Lunar Eclipse occurs and see how you feel.

Many of you are trying to get too much done right now, and without much time, money, or energy. And you’ve depleted your energy and it’s low, so don’t overdo anything as we enter into “Eclipse Season.” There might be something that comes up during the Eclipses that you will have to pay extra close attention too, so you’ll need the extra time. So again I repeat don’t overdo anything right now! And during this particular Eclipse Season lots of folks are getting sick or falling ill. Keep your immune system strong.

Everyone feels the Eclipses on some level, if they understand it or not. For some folks, it may not affect them directly but more indirectly, where you have to help the other people in your life because they’re having a hard time, so you could end up spending this “Eclipse Season” lending a helping hand. And then the rest of us could have issues or challenges we have to work through, and hopefully, the favor is returned and we get a little help from our friends when we are down.

This Lunar Eclipse coming together in January can reveal something that’s been hidden or kept secret. It can be a personal issue that you’ve been trying to hide, but also global issues have already started to come out. If for whatever reason you’re trying to hide something, or keep secrets be careful because Full Moon’s are truth-telling time and a Lunar Eclipse just amplifies that energy even more, so basically whatever is being hidden could come out this week! As these Eclipses come together the Universe sends out very subtle or sometimes strong messages, and these messages can be a reality check of some kind. So be on the lookout in the next week or so for signs, symbols, and dreams about what is coming to light.

Want to know the best way to handle “Eclipse Season”, here are some helpful hints.

*Get some Rest, The body takes a lot of energy on during an Eclipse, it transforms us on a deep cellular level which means our DNA moves around, and as we begin to download information from the Eclipses (mostly unconscious) this energy can be exhausting for all of us.

*Don’t allow yourself to get involved in others drama, mind your business. The lunar activity can make folks feel pretty crazy anyway, so Eclipses really can cause some of us to get ramped up and become frustrated, and anxiety-ridden. Then, in turn, you can take out your fears on everyone else. Stay away from the negativity period! We absorb the energies we continue to be around, good, bad, or indifferent.

*Nurture yourself during Eclipse Season. This is about taking care of your total well-being. You need to stay as balanced as possible because Eclipses can make us feel like we’re in an energetic rat race. With energy pushing and pulling on us.

*Meditate daily and get connected to your Spirit, Mind, and Body..
*Eat balanced meals and don’t grab junk in a hurry. Go organic and drink lots of extra water right now.

*Journal daily, it’s therapy, seriously just try it! Write about how your feeling and what you desire in life. This can also help you keep up with any signs or messages you might be seeing, and it may help you build a more personal relationship with the Universe.

*Exercise and burn off some steam, this will help you keep all that nervous energy under control, and it can help you stay balanced.

*Connect to Nature – get outdoors and take a walk daily, or perhaps go to the park, just do something that’s physically active.

*Play music and lift your mood, or something relaxing. Music is so good for the Soul. Make sure and stay away from sad or angry music or movies. The point is to raise your vibration and not bring it down.

*Wear Gem Stones of any kind that make you feel good, they will raise your vibration and can aid you. Stones tend to help us feel relaxed and calmer and keep you grounded. Learn more about the healing qualities of the Stones if you don’t know.

*Get away from all the negative media, because during Eclipse Season it’s always just full of more sad and tragic events happening in the world. Things happen during Eclipses, and as I said it shakes us up. While there can be some great stuff going on in the world as well, the news and social media seldom report it. We can get flooded with lower vibrational negative news and information. Eclipse Season has already begun, so unplug! Block negative media and other drama on Facebook and surround yourself with positive open-minded people, groups, and pages.

Remember Eclipses can be a good thing too, they can deliver messages from the Cosmos that we need to hear or see. Thisall can be extremely revealing, so we can make decisions that make our lives better in some way.

“Eclipse Season” started in December of 2019, with the Solar Eclipse in Capricorn. Now here in a just a short time the Lunar Eclipse occurs on January 10 in Cancer.

Mercury ☿ in Capricorn

For All Zodiac Signs

On December 28th Mercury enters the sign of Capricorn and stays there through January 16th.

Mercury, the planet of communication, commerce, and travel has been in the sign of Sagittarius for the last three weeks at its detriment. The bottom line is this means while Mercury is in Sagittarius, it does not do so well. As we had less control of our mouths and impulses. This was a time of travel, exploration, and learning. But even if we didn’t get to actually go anywhere, we probably had some amazing adventures in our minds. It was a good time for meeting new people, so hopefully there were fresh new ideas gained and perspectives changed. But now a shift occurs and it’s time to make new plans and set new goals, and manifest what we want next in our life. Our goals should reflect who we are and want to become.

With Mercury in Capricorn, we tend to get more calm and quiet, and are less over the top under this energy. It’s much easier to focus and concentrate on the tasks on hand that we need to take care of. This simply is a much better position for the messenger planet, so we can get more serious about taking care of business once again.

With the planet that rules over our thinking in more systematic Capricorn, we are more focused. Our attitude tends to be more sobering and practical. It’s much easier to concentrate on what needs to get done. Our conversations are more reality-based, usually about business or practical matters. We communicate more logically, as we can be more organized and orderly. Being focused on the here and now can help us plan ahead. Communications tend to be a matter of fact, no-nonsense, and precise. But it’s important to not allow our thoughts to become too cold or rigid, or we can come across as cut off and even harsh during this cycle, when really we are just more focused on business and goals.

There’s actually a whole lot of Capricorn energy going around right now, with it being “Capricorn Season”, and there are four other planets also in the sign represented by the Sea-Goat. This energy encourages us to take life and ourselves more seriously, so it doesn’t support fantasies do much or daydreams about the future. It wants us to just get out and actually do something.

We should be as productive as possible during these cycles! It’s a good time to make out plans and get organized by writing things down, especially your goals. And talk about what you want to do with the people involved. Staying productive makes us happy and puts our minds at ease.

The sign of Capricorn is not about being overly emotional, as it has work to do. It’s about the material things here on the planet and what we value in the physical world. Our thinking tends to be more logical and practical. It may not be the best time to share feelings or for being vulnerable, as we are more concerned and focused on getting what we want and seeing actual results materialize.

Under this energy, we tend to value honesty, integrity, and loyalty. So we should use this time to identify the best means to get a job done. Under this Capricorn influence, we can manage our resources quite well and make mostly practical purchases with our hard-earned cash or money.

It is important to take care of ourselves, and make sure we are taking some time to get away, relax and have some fun from time to time. Under all this Capricorn energy people tend to be more hard on themselves, so we can beuptight. It’s ok to rest and not be constantly doing something. Take a break!

Have a productive and successful time with Mercury in Capricorn.

Winter Solstice 2019

For All Zodiac Signs

The Winter Solstice occurs on December 21st, 2019 in the late evening time in the United States when the Sun leaves the sign of Sagittarius and enters the sign of Capricorn, where it remains through Jan 20, 2020.

This also officially starts “Capricorn Season.” Happy Birthday to all my Capricorn folks!

This year’s Winter Solstice is soon followed by a Solar Eclipse on December 26th. This Eclipse can actually be quite interesting as it is very close proximity to lucky Jupiter! And giant Jupiter and surprising Uranus make a fabulous trine connection, this brings up all sorts of interesting things like inventions and big grand ideas as it opens new paths. Innovation is in the air, so we can go out on new exciting adventures. I hope you all get to celebrate this magical season full of wonder and excitement.

All of these Cosmic connections make for some pretty amazing energies to be honest! These planetary combinations bring in an extra dose of love, happiness, and good fortune for all of us to share. Which is perfect timing for the Holidays! But there also might be some unexpected twists and turns, so just hang on for the ride.

The Sun in Capricorn is a time to get motivated and take care of business. We are being reminded by the Cosmos to respect the physical world and the laws of nature under this influence. There can be a deeper appreciation for structure and order. Our motivation comes from a need to be responsible, as our ambitions and respect for law and order our strong. And clear boundaries are drawn out and simple rules are followed, which helps us feel more in control of ourselves and our lives. Simple everyday tasks and responsibilities are easily completed and taken more seriously.

During this cycle, we can start working on our long-term goals, as we can manifest some stability for our future. Under the Sun in Capricorn, we can feel quite satisfied if we get tasks and work completed because this gives us a stronger sense of accomplishment As we look for tangible results, and start to realize what will last and what won’t. We’re much more comfortable working in an already established situation, where we know our boundaries during Capricorn Season.

Weekend Update Dec 21 & 22

The Moon shifts into the sign of Scorpio for a few days which creates a more passionate, intense energy. This can help us get motivated to gr our last-minute holiday preparations together. However, if we fall into our emotions for whatever reason we can get lost in them and become obsessed with a need to analyze ourselves and others. This is a time that the truth tends to come out, so think about what you’re saying before you speak!

This is an amazing opportunity to open up to healing yourself and others through your spiritual heart. (That place within yourself that feels love.)

Venus the planet of love aligns with wounded healer/teacher Chiron. There may be challenges or struggles as values and tastes clash, or we can feel torn between wanting closeness and needing our freedom. We can get lost quickly, because we can be quite impulsive if we feel attracted to someone. There’s a deeper pull towards buying material things, (Which is not so good in this day and age with the Holidays coming up! ) Watch your wallets folks, you can seriously go overboard. Some of you will be able to really focus on your relationships and healing. But we can feel quite moody and our emotions can be up and down, this can lead to new commitments.

Over the weekend things can get a bit intense when the planet of love, Venus squares the planet of change and rebellion, Uranus. This can cause unexpected upsets and arguments especially in our close personal relationships with friends and family. So watch yourself at any family gatherings over the weekend, things can get testy. If you know there will be someone you will see that you don’t like then you may want to skip the event. But if you think it will be cool, then just stay aware and if any drama starts up to be ready to get out of there if need be.

Now the good news is the planet Mars which motivates us is in a rather lucky aspect, this can give us a major boost of energy to get things done. This influence can have us feeling strong and vital, and it can motivate us to finish whatever we start. It can actually be a successful day if you can keep things calm.

Here’s to a magical Winter Season, may you be healthy and abundant.
Be Blessed

Email Me Today! It’s not too late to order for the Holiday Season.

The Last Full Moon of 2019

The Last Full Moon of 2019 is slowly building up energy now, and this is right before Eclipse Season begins.


The December Full Moon illuminates in the sign of Gemini (represented by the twins of the Zodiac) on the 11th or 12th, depending on what part of the world you live in. So during this time, you may see things show up or happen in pairs. 

The Universe gives the gift of clarity during a Full Moon, and highlights the duality in your life. This helps you see all sides of any given situation or the whole picture. You can feel conflicted about something in your life and want to take action, but it’s really best to wait until the day after the Full Moon occurs to make any important decisions or changes. 

Love Is Serious Business! On Dec. 11th the Goddess of Love herself, Venus, meets up with Father Saturn in the sign of Capricorn. This is a time when we mean business about our love lives and financial responsibilities. A serious commitment or proposal could take place.

On Dec 12th, the Full Moon will reach its peak of fullness at 12:12 AM EST on the 12th day of the 12 month of the year! That’s pretty amazing and rare! This energy is magical and can help you create your future. What do you need to let go of so you can move forward? What needs to be released? 


It’s time to Set those Intentions! This is a very potent Full Moon and the last one of the year, so you don’t want to miss out. If you can’t stay up until Midnight, make sure to Set Intentions. Practice doing energy work or rituals on Dec. 11th, when there’s a good view of the Moon. 


Full Moons are the best time in a calendar month to work on letting go of what is no longer working or serving you. This particular energy helps you release what you don’t want to carry into the New Year.

During this Full Moon, you should work on letting go of any problems you have had, especially ones from last summer when the last Eclipse came together in July. There may be some unresolved issues that started back then that need your time and attention. This Full Moon energy might be an opportunity to fix something or gain some closure.

December is, of course, a very busy month, but we need to take this time (just for a day or two) and reflect on what we want to release from our life. So that we won’t bring any bad juju into 2020! One of the best ways to do this is to Set Intentions with this energy. If you’re not too sure how to go about it please follow this link Setting Intentions with the Full Moon. Doing some sort of ritual under this energy can help give your spiritual wellness the boost it needs to make some magic happen.


This Full Moon brings new and fresh opportunities into our relationships as well. It may help you get some closure if needed. Some of you may feel this energy in a particularly strong and intense manner, so expect this energy to sort of take you over for a few days. The Zodiac Sun Signs Gemini, Sagittarius, Pisces, and Virgo may feel this Full Moon more strongly, as it pushes you to see the things you need to change in your life. But remember this Full Moon energy can be felt by all of us.


Last Full Moon of the Decade

This Full Moon is the last Full Moon of this Decade (2010-2019). The Cosmos is trying to tell us that it’s a strong time for Closure! Are you ready to complete this chapter of your life and start a new one? This is the energy you have been waiting for. 


Synchronicity – 12th day of the 12th month of the year that equals 12 (2+0+1+9 =12)

This Full Moon occurs at the portal gate of 12. Numerologically speaking, 12 is not just a number that equals 3. It’s a special and very potent number. Throughout history witches, priests, Astrologers, and different spiritualities of all kinds knew the importance of the number 12.

  • 12 are the Months of the Year
  • 12 are the Zodiac Signs
  • 12 are the principal Gods and Goddesses of  Olympus
  • 12 are the disciples of Jesus Christ
  • 12 are the tribes of Israel according to the Old Testament
  • 12 are the Labours (Challenges) of Hercules
  • 12 are the Magical hours of the Day
  • 12 are the Magical hours of the Night

Therefore, the Full Moon will be drenched in the Power of 12.
12 is the number of perfection, the number of Universal Wisdom and immense power. It is believed to be the number of the Angels and their power. 


The Triple Conjunction that occurs right with the Full Moon is a very powerful energy. 

Try to lighten up as much as you can during this Full Moon. Don’t allow your inner-critic to take over. This is not a good time to beat yourself up, it is a time to focus on your inner healing journey.

Lovely Venus is very strong during this Full Moon, and just like any good woman who knows what she wants, she can trigger you with the truth about the issues in your relationships. Venus is smack in between Saturn and Pluto, all forming a conjunction. This can make you feel powerful, assertive, but also uncertain. It’s a good time to set clear boundaries with your nearest and dearest, but it can be rather difficult to end a relationship, especially with it being the Holiday Season. Remember you have to do what’s best for you, so ignore those folks who tell you what to do. 

Let go of your fears when it comes to asking for help, after all the Moon is in Gemini which is the sign of the twins. Perhaps this means we aren’t meant to work on our problems alone during this time, maybe it’s best to take the help. 

This Full Moon may stir up some issues around our finances. During the Holidays we generally spend more money as it is, so we can use this energy to our advantage. Starting now work on your money issues, and make out a plan of action. Make phone calls to settle accounts or make payment arrangements. Whatever you do don’t ignore your financial responsibilities before the Full Moon comes together on the 11th/12th. As it can seriously backfire on you. And if at all possible, put some money away to save. And set some financial goals for next year. Write it all down! 

However, this Full Moon can bring in financial blessings of some sort. If you are already doing well financially, do yourself a favor and find ways to give back. This energy is all about paying it forward, as this helps someone else benefit and can erase some of your Karmic Debt. There’s a strong need to find a balance between giving and receiving. Think about what you actually give back. Are you truly open to receiving? If not you can be unconsciously blocking blessings. That’s definitely something to be working on. 

It is the Holiday Season, so many of you will be around your friends and family more so than usual, which often means drama! There’s going to be moments or triggers, where you are going to need to try really hard to keep your cool. It is a Full Moon, therefore, whatever problems arise will be out in the open to be dealt with. The Moon in Gemini, the sign of information and self-expression, so we can say too much once triggered. Don’t let things get too crazy. It’s best to release how your feeling slowly, so it doesn’t all come pouring out at once. Express yourself if need be, just be mindful about losing your cool. And sometimes a good argument can help fix things. 


Time for Healing! 

You should be using this Full Moon energy to practice self-care. Right after it occurs you can work on finding ways to relax and restore your energies. Just after the Full Moon peaks wounded healer Chiron, (the asteroid of healing) goes Direct from being Retrograde since last July! This Full Moon energy has the power to heal you. This is an ideal time to focus on your health, as it can help you find ways to boost your immune system. It’s important to do something that involves self-care, so if you need to go to the doctor (of any kind), this is a good time to make that appointment. This is amazing energy for you to work on health problems. 

These healing energies are not just about working on your physical well-being, they also can help with your mental and emotional health. If you need someone to chat with about your problems, this is a good time to seek out a therapist of some kind. Or perhaps you just need a friend or family member, or perhaps a Spiritual Advisor of some kind, wink! And if you just can’t bring yourself to reach out for help, perhaps try to do something new or different, like a workout class, new diet regime, start meditation, or a Yoga class. Changing up the energies during this time can work out well. 

The Full Moon in Gemini can help us to be more loving, kind, and compassionate. Our creative nature can come out strong, but you may have to get into situations where you can use it. And since we are feeling more open and can be more sensitive about other people’s feelings, we can use this energy to share love and kindness, that’s a gift. This is something we should be doing all year long, but the Holidays are always a good reminder. 


On Dec. 13th the Full moon energy will still be running quite strong! And Mars makes a sweet Trine connection to spiritual Neptune. This is some serious Psychic Energy! It’s important to listen to your gut instincts and those psychic hunches, or A-Ha moments. Pay attention to your dreams as well, as your intuition will be vibrating very high. Highly sexual otherworldly experiences. 


The Full Moon in Gemini can show you the duality of your life. Just like the two sides of Gemini, it can bring blessings but it might also bring in some opposition. Once the Full Moon energy breaks apart through the weekend you can reflect on just how happy or upset you’ve been with your life in 2019. This energy gives you an opportunity to let go and release anything you’ve been hanging onto emotionally or physically that is no longer working for you. Then you can start the New Year with a new beginning and hopefully a fresh start. 


Have a Safe and Blessed Full Moon

December Astro Forecast

December 2 – Jupiter enters Capricorn
Jupiter joins up with the heavy-hitting planets Saturn and Pluto in ambitious Capricorn. It’s time to pay attention to the areas of your life that you want to build a solid foundation on, so focus on what you want to achieve in the coming New Year. You can meet people who help you get ahead in one way or another. Just remember any hard work you do now will be rewarded. Even though we can receive some much needed help, with so many planets in the sign of Capricorn, there can be challenges as well. Especially, when those who are of authority or who are in charge band together with their combined powers. To rise above these tests and challenges, and meet your goals, you will need to stay focused and concentrate. Keep things practical, and be savvy and strategic, this is not the time to be impulsive or to just wing it! 


December 3 – Venus sextiles Mars
Venus the Goddess of Love and relationships is also in the sign of, you guessed it, Capricorn. Her Cosmic Lover Mars, the planet of aggression, action, and desire is actually in Scorpio right now, and together these two make a powerful couple. This can be a beneficial influence that helps you meet new people romantically. It can help those of you who are already involved in a committed relationship to strengthen the bonds you have already built.


December 8 – Sun squares Neptune
Neptune is the planet that rules over your dreams, fantasies, imagination, and spirituality. With the Sun shining its energy on Neptune, things can feel rather confusing and some of you may feel down and out. But this can be an amazing time to escape your busy life, and get rid of all the distractions, and unplug, or just relax. Using your mind and logic won’t help you find the answers, instead, try a little creativity and some daydreaming perhaps. Don’t worry, because even if you don’t know where you are going or exactly what you want. All of us need some downtime to replenish our energies, so find a place of peace and relaxation, and take a moment to breathe and simply be. The rest of the world will just have to wait. 


December 9 – Mercury enters Sagittarius
Mercury is the planet of communication and expression. When it shifts into the more optimistic sign of Sagittarius are heads fill up with new ideas and we can enjoy fun conversations that may just help us learn better about how to reach our goals. Keep things practical and stay grounded, but express your enthusiasm and you might just succeed. Sagittarius energy demands truth, so all of us will appreciate a good honest discussion at this time. Just be careful not to overdo it, and share your whole life story, as giving to much of your business away can cause problems. This energy can have us telling way to much truth, and then we have to apologize for it later. If you can remember to use tact you won’t feel regretful later. 


December 11 – Venus conjuncts Saturn
Saturn is about taking responsibility as it holds us accountable. So when Venus connects to stern Saturn there can be challenges in your relationships. But you also can gain clarity about the people in your life, this can help you understand better what you want and don’t want. 


December 12 – Full Moon in Gemini
This Full Moon is handing out information and brings news that can make you doubt your current plans. This week is going to be moving very fast, and you might feel stressed out and overwhelmed! But it can also help open your eyes and see the truth about situations that you need to be done with. This is anxious energy, even more so than normal, so some folks can be extremely emotional and high strung, so whatever they are communicating can be illogical. Make no important decisions during this time! Take things nice and slow, and review all the info you have gathered. Once this Full  Moon has passed you will be able to see the whole picture, and then you will know what you should do next.


December 13 – Venus conjuncts Pluto
Venus rules over our relationships and Pluto is about the power and control we have. Conjunctions are often about new beginnings. But this influence can be about our projects, goals, or other people. You can feel powerful during this time, and your energy can run high. If you choose to let go of what’s broken or not working in your relationships, then it might just transform and come back together into something new and stronger. But this is strong powerful energy to grab ahold of, if you embrace it you may just be able to achieve your goals. Keep your heart open to the ones who love you back. 


December 15 – Jupiter trines Uranus
Jupiter is about expanding one’s horizons, it wants to help you improve your life. When it shifts into the sign of Capricorn our goals become our main focus. This energy can help you rebuild something in your life, into something different or even new. The world opens up to new possibilities, so it’s a good year to make long-term improvements. Keep your options open and be ready as opportunities show up. Other people are a valuable resource during this time, as they can help you at least begin your new journey. 


December 19 – Mars sextiles Saturn
The action planet Mars is in powerful Scorpio. As it makes this connection to stabilizing Saturn in ambitious Capricorn, all our hard work can finally pay off, as help comes from those of authority or positions of power. This helps us put the finishing touches on any projects or plans we have been working on for a while now. If you share your ideas and visions for your future plans and goals, you will probably get the help you need to realize them. 


December 20 – Venus enters Aquarius
Venus the planet of Love herself, enters the more emotionally detached sign of Aquarius. This is a very interesting influence because you can actually meet someone during this time to love that shares the same values and moral codes as you, but you also need your partner to be your friend under this energy. Since we tend to be more social during this time, it is easier to meet people at events (hello Holidays) as long as you participate in activities you enjoy. If you are already committed, this is a good time to work on strengthening the friendship you have with your nearest and dearest.


December 21 – Sun enters Capricorn
The Sun enters the more practical sign of Capricorn and this marks the beginning of the Winter Solstice. This is a magical time, (all the Solstices are) but it’s best to take this time to get quiet and reflect on this past year, think about what you are grateful for. Now is the time of the year when we tend to hide out, the winter months are about staying out of the cold. But with so many other planets in the sign of Capricorn, we should be planning and preparing for 2020. Think about your dreams, goals, and plans and what you would like to accomplish. This is a fiercely ambitious influence that can help you get ahead if you work with its energies in the right way


December 24 – Sun trines Uranus
When the radiant Sun shines on the divine messenger, Uranus, we can have way more energy and courage to do what we want, how we want! All you are required to do is go after your goals and take advantage of this influence. Look to your soul tribes and those who are of support. Make changes, and be open to adjustments and change up your plans if need be, make them stronger and better, as there are people around during this time that are willing to assist you.


December 26 – Solar Eclipse in Capricorn
A powerful Solar Eclipse occurs on this day in the sign of ambitious Capricorn, as this influence can help you reconnect to the world around you. For most of us, the outer world is about our careers, for others, it is school or volunteer work that takes up most of your interactions. The Solar Eclipse occurs at the same time as the New Moon, this means it is an especially strong time for drama but it’s also a new beginning. This New Moon energy is all about achieving your goals, by taking step by step plans to reach them. It’s a good time to decide what you are going to take responsibility for and what you don’t. This is a time to take actions that help you make your life more secure, by accomplishing what is practical. Over the next few weeks while the light of the Moon slowly increases from this New Moon to a Full Moon, stay focused and put your time and energy into something you really want to see grow and build up to be strong, or make it about something that is really important to you. Staying consistent and focusing on the same goals over this two week period can bring amazing results, or at the very least put you on the right path towards achieving your goals. Everyone’s journey is different.


December 27 – Sun conjuncts Jupiter
Every year, the Sun shines its light on optimistic Jupiter. This year, of course, it’s meeting up with the sign of practicality and security, Capricorn. Jupiter is all about its generosity as it expands the energy of the sign it is in, and it brings along helpers, guides, angels and whatever you can think of to help us build upon these Capricorn energies. This is a great time to work once again on your plans for your future, to reach goals that have to do with the long-term. This energy wants you to get real and stick to a plan that is in the here and now.


December 28: Mercury enters Capricorn
When the planet of Communication enters the sign of practical Capricorn, we can learn what is working and what isn’t. Stay focused on your goals, but also get out and do some networking, especially with folks who have already done or accomplished what you hope to achieve. You can gain some valuable advice and they can lead you to meet the right people who can help you. All your hard work will be rewarded soon, so stay focused, and don’t give up.

Have a wonderful December,
~Ruby

Mars Enters Scorpio

Mars enters the sign of Scorpio today and will transit this sign until January 3rd. In Scorpio, Mars is driven and focused on getting what it wants. With Mars shifting into the sign of Scorpio it can be easier to assert yourself in the actions you take. So you can feel more driven and focused to get things done. This is a time when we are more strong-willed, passionate, and resilient.


But we also can go deep into our feelings, and at times we need space to think and process the depths of our emotions, so we can experience some sort of lesson and learn more about our own personal power. This can be a strong time to transform something in your life around your physical well-being, and/or sex life.


Once you are on a mission it can be very difficult for anyone to stop you during this time. Our focus and drive are strong, as we go after what we want! You can feel obsessed with getting to the bottom of a problem, especially if you are frustrated or angry about it. And you might be more interested in revenge, and we all know what a bad idea that can be! Yes, really!


This is a time when we can be fascinated and can get caught up with what others tend to repress, so things that have been hidden, kept secret, denied, or ignored can come out to experience and understand better. The truth will come out once again and be exposed, especially in the actions you take or if you are provoked or angry. Temper, Temper, be mindful about how you communicate with others, you could come off a bit too honest and really hurt someone’s feelings.


If you need to be more assertive, the energy will help you to be more direct, without worrying about apologies. It’s a good time for getting organized, as this energy can give you the drive to declutter your office or storage areas around the house. Mars in Scorpio is a time when we dig deeper and enjoy getting rid of anything old or outdated. We are just simply clearing the energies out to bring in something new, which can be healing. So throw out those old photo albums of your ex-boyfriend or ex-girlfriend, or get rid of anything that’s holding onto the energy from your past negative experiences. Throw it out, it’s time to let go and move forward!


We don’t want to avoid important issues now. Because we are kind of attracted to chaos and crisis which go hand in hand with Mars in Scorpio. We see the problem areas in our life as transformative and it can be exciting emotionally. There’s a point that you may feel better about feeling extreme emotions than nothing at all, as our normal everyday life and routines just are unsatisfying during this time.

Setting Intentions under the Full Moon!

“Setting Intentions with the Full Moon” 

This is an opportune time to ask the Universe to release whatever energies you need to let go or do away with, and also 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 just 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 things up, so we can get on the right path in life that helps us bring new and fresh energy.


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 it 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, God, etc!) whatever you believe in! Ask for the “Full Moon” to help illuminate the path that leads you towards your deepest desires. 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.  


Happy Full Moon
~Ruby


Mercury Retrograde – Deeper Thoughts

Mercury goes Retrograde on Halloween October 31st, 2019 and runs through November 17, 2019.


Mercury is currently in the sign of Scorpio, this is a deep, potent, psychological energy. Therefore we go into a more private introverted place that has us exploring the deeper parts of our minds and psyche, as we learn truths that come from the depths of our souls. What is considered to be taboo or secret comes out in the open. The truth comes out to be told! The sign of Scorpio, after all, is the sign of regeneration, as it teaches all of us that sometimes we must fall to pieces and let something end or die off to start over again. 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 go much deeper than usual while in this cycle and uncover ways to improve our lives and ourselves.

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 some time off from our responsibilities 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 planets 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 take a breathe, be still, relax, and review. The main thing to understand as this cycle takes hold that it’s a time to review your life and redo anything that needs to be done. It is time to research, re-think, re-visit, re-connect, and to get re-organized.

Mercury rules over our minds and how we process information, so this is a time to observe our lives from an outside perspective, which is truly a gift. From this space, we have the rare opportunity to see the contrast in our lives and what is working and what isn’t. The only problem is we live in a time of INFORMATION and after all, Mercury is the planet that delivers info, but during its Retrograde cycles, it wants us to simply UNPLUG and take a step back from our normal everyday routines and lives, and to not be online or on our phones, CAN YOU IMAGINE THAT! But if we were to stop using all of our electronic devices and take work off, and simply review our lives it would be a much better experience. The reality is only a few of you reading this are actually able to do this. So the challenge is in learning how to handle Mercury in Retrograde and still do our lives. Those of you who already pay attention to Mercury in Rx’s cycles understand just how annoying all the misunderstandings, electronic glitches, and snafus can be! So the bottom line is we should learn how to put our phones down from time to time and just simply do life, as this is a time of deep inner reflection.


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 Minds and 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 before 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 is no longer working, especially in your intimate relationships.

There can be positive things that come from a Mercury in Retrograde cycle that perhaps didn’t cross your mind. 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. Try not to allow any computer glitches or electronic snafus you might be experiencing to upset you too much.

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.

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, so remember trying to rationalize everything at this time will just probably cause you more confusion. 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 started.

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 and plan ahead. 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 differently, and Mercury and the Sun are both in the sign of Scorpio this time around, the truth tends to come out! Certain things that have been suppressed, hidden, secret or unknown suddenly are shown to us during this time. 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 starting November 17, 2019.

Have a safe Mercury in Retrograde,
~Ruby

“Sun in Scorpio”

“Sun in Scorpio”
Oct 23rd – Nov 22nd


For All Zodiac Signs:

The Sun shifts into the mysterious sign of Scorpio on October 23rd and “Scorpio Season” officially begins. Every aspect of life can feel super-charged with intensity between now and November 22nd.

Happy Birthday to all my Sun Sign Scorpions out there!
But this blog is for all the Signs, so read on to learn more.

The sign of Scorpio is notoriously known for being the darkest (symbolically speaking), mysterious, and deeply psychological sign in the Zodiac, as it explores the soul when it’s under the light of the Sun and truths, deceptions, and secrets are exposed.

Scorpio’s lessons are 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 you at this time, only the real deal will do! This sign and its energy is the detective of the Zodiac, therefore we are more interested in getting to the bottom of our problems, as we work at uncovering what’s been hidden, suppressed, or unseen. We also can be quite obsessed with other people’s problems and can feel a strong urge to help those around us. Under this energy, you might actually enjoy all that is odd, taboo, or different in the world. Anything just plain or average may not be enough for us during this time.

During Libra Season, while the Sun was in Libra over the last month we worked at being fair and equal, as our attention was on our relationships and keeping things more balanced. But under this
Scorpio energy we accept the fact that life isn’t fair, and we are learning to understand that pain and suffering are actually part of the process of life. In order to truly evolve, we must transform ourselves and perhaps go some sort of major breakdown to end something and begin anew.

Scorpio energy is also quite sexy, mysterious, and provocative! So there’s going to be some interesting situations that spark up in our relationships while the Sun is in Scorpio. And the single folks out there may search for a strong love, committed, and long-term during this time. This Scorpio influence keeps us perhaps a little more reserved about how passionate we truly feel, but we can still be strong-willed and intense. This is a time of powerful emotions and some of you might feel rather emotional during its run. This energy can transform certain things in your life, of course, depending on what part of your personal Astrology Birth Chart the Sun is cruising through is what part of your life this energy will be the most evident.


The sign of Scorpio is often represented by the Scorpion, but also, the Mythical Bird, the “Phoenix” can represent this brave sign. The legend of the Phoenix is about how once were ready to go, die off, or end our chapter in this life, this magical bird flies up in the air and catches fire and turns to dust! But from that state, it comes back and resurrects itself back to being whole. Once it has risen back to life, it is ready to start over again. This legend teaches us that sometimes we have to fall apart, and let something end, or let a part ourselves die off to resurrect and come back to life, so we can tap into some kind of new energy and start something anew.

The shadow side of Scorpio energy is we can become more easily jealous, paranoid, obsessive, and manipulative. This energy can cause some of you to be more obsessive about an issue or problem, as we can be compulsive and won’t let things just happen naturally. This, of course, will get you nowhere and it might be more difficult to stop once you have started focusing on something.

Despite how scary or creepy this all might sound, Scorpio is part of the Zodiac Wheel for a reason and we all have a little or a lot of this sign in each of our Astrology Birth Charts. Scorpio energy also gives us incredible drive and strength, which in turn can help us get through difficult times. This sign knows how to survive the worst of situations and has extra reserved up energy to get through. Scorpio energy kicks ass and takes names once it is forced to die off like the Phoenix, so it can figure out whatever it needs to know to come back. So draw upon the Scorpio energy during this time to help you take on difficult tasks or situations in your life.

Curious Mercury and loving Venus are also in the sign of Scorpio at this time, which also runs through Scorpio Season. This means our souls, hearts, and minds are all being ruled by the Scorpio energy, therefore, some of you will be breaking your lives down to rise up once again, and perhaps resurrect yourselves in some way just like the Phoenix!

This can be 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 Halloween originated from the Holiday the “Day of the Dead,” which is a time when we should be honoring those who have passed or crossed over, it’s a time to be in touch with our ancestors who lived here before us. With so much Scorpio energy this season going around the veils between this world and other realms are very thin, and we will have an extra spooky Halloween Season as our minds are very in sync with the afterlife and paranormal. Therefore many of you will be able to connect to loved ones who have crossed more easily than usual. And those spirits and energies that are still roaming on this earthly plane will be restless, so often that means more communicative as well. But remember they have to communicate differently with us.

This is also a time when the earth sheds itself, as the Fall into Winter months is the time the planet dies off so to speak, but we know next Spring it will resurrect itself and start all over again. Ask yourself what part of your life do you need to end? What are you shedding away? What part of your life needs to die off and perhaps be started all over? Are you being forced to look at certain parts of your life now, so you will end something? This can be any part of your life, an old worn-out behavior or attitude, a situation, or it could be with a person. Or perhaps it is something spiritual within yourself.

Have a revealing and safe Scorpio Season.

October Full Moon


For All Zodiac Signs:

The Full Moon illuminates on Sunday, October 13, 2019, in the sign Aries. The Moon in trailblazing Aries is an opposition with the Sun in charming Libra.

This year’s Full Hunter’s Moon rises from the sky’s horizon right around sunset, meaning it may appear even bigger and more orange than your typical Full Moon.


The Aries/Libra connection under this particular Full Moon means we are learning how to balance the energies of our “self” with the energies of “others.” Aries is all about being assertive when need be, while Libra is more about compromise. The Moon in Aries teaches us about leading, bravery, and being more courageous, and it also shows us how to be independent, and that it’s ok to be dependent in a healthy relationship. It’s a time when our focus may be put on balancing out these two different sides of our life. This can be with anyone you are close too, not just intimate partners, so it can be parents, siblings, children, or just a very close friend.

This Full Moon is a powerful, strong emotional time. Full Moons are always about creating a balance between the Moon and Sun’s opposition. You probably already know what part of your life you should be working on during this Full Moon, as whatever relationship issues that have been up for you as of recently are probably related to this Full Moon energy coming in.


Release all the Junk!

This is an opportune time to ask the Universe to release whatever you need to “let go” or “do away” with, or what doesn’t serve you! 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 just have held you down or blocked you up! It’s time to get the old stuff out so the good stuff can come in! Write out a list of what you don’t want and what you do want to see happen in your life next, and check out my Setting Intentions Blog to learn more.

Shadow Side of the Full Moon

This Full Moon is in a tense Square to spooky Pluto which can bring out some deeply buried feelings and rather intense emotions. Sleep may be difficult to come by for a few days before and after this Full Moon peaks because its energy is stimulating. Remain calm, patient, but firm with anyone who loses their cool around you. But also be cautious and let no one mistreat or abuse you! There can be a crisis that comes up first due to our stronger feelings and being so overly emotional. Abusive relationships can get much worse so be careful and protect yourself!

Under this Full Moon in Aries, secrets are revealed as the light shines on the truth of any given situation. But do remember Aries energy is ruled by the planet Mars, the God of War, so people are more amped up and anxious, and the tension can have people arguing or wanting to fight. So pay attention to your surroundings and don’t allow those that are already upset to bait you into a battle, trust me it’s not worth it!

Anyone who is more interested in you or perhaps an admirer, or even a stalker can be more active during this Full Moon time. People are going to feel brave now and can be extra impulsive, so they may be checking up on you the easiest way we all know how nowadays, which is on Social Media. Watch what you post, for the time being, and remember if you share it, it’s no longer private! And if you are feeling obsessive about someone, you may just find some bit of information that is upsetting about them, don’t say I didn’t warn you! It may just be a good time to take a break from social media over the weekend.


Positive Effects of the Full Moon

The good news is lucky Jupiter connects in a beautiful Trine to this Full Moon in Aries. This can help cool down some of the relationship issues coming up with the Moon Square Pluto connection. This is a good time to turn any intense emotions you are feeling into healing your relationship issues. But that’s only if everyone directly involved is willing to do the work to make it happen. This is one of those times when a crisis can be a turning point for some couples, to finally do something to fix their relationship or end it altogether. 


This weekend also has strong potential for business partnerships or relationships, as influential people tend to gravitate to those who need their help. This also can bring in a new friend or lover, any new people you might meet under this Full Moon could lead to success, happiness, and even wealth.


Full Moon Bonus!

This Full Moon will provide some strong opportunities to help heal broken or strained relationships. This is usually with family members but also can be with lovers that are separated or even divorced spouses. Once we get through some sort of crisis this energy will help us get through. The energy of crisis is up for lots of folks right now, but hold on because this will start to shift soon once the Full Moon occurs. You will know much more by the New Moon on the 27th.

Lucky opportunities will come during this Full Moon for some folks, as there can be unexpected or last-minute surprises, so say “yes” if someone asks to help out, no, you are not dreaming, it is for real! If anyone of authority wants to help you in some way, let them! Never turn down a gift the Universe is trying to give you, be open to receiving.

Even though there will be challenges during this Full Moon due to its connection to powerful Pluto, it’s still a positive force coming into our lives because it also brings in some amazing healing and lucky energy! Enjoy!


Have a happy and safe Full Moon,
~Ruby
