Happy Birthday, Libra! And Happy Libra Season to all. The Sun shifts from practical, detailed Virgo into the sign of harmony and balance, Libra, through October 23.
This is our “Autumnal Equinox”, and we will experience equal hours of daylight as darkness. Today is something to talk about because not only is the Sun moved into charming Libra, but so has the “great messenger” Mercury and the Goddess of Love, Venus. So our core-self, minds, and hearts are in sync, besides the constant need for balance these aspects turn our focus towards our relationships, as these influences bring in the energy of balance, cooperation, and equality. It’s a good time to work on balancing your personal life and relationships.
We can feel mentally sharper and be made more aware of issues of injustice by being able to spot unfair treatment. We may have to stand up for ourselves or someone else during this time. This seems to come out more so with family and close friends. It can be easier at this time to see all sides to most situations, so we can have a hard time choosing sides while trying to figure things out. Just remember you can’t make everyone happy, as decision making can prove to be difficult. This is a good time to meet others halfway, compromise, and work on negotiations. Take into consideration other folks needs, agendas, and desires as well as your own. We might start playing the role of peacemaker, so we can be very diplomatic when it comes to dealing with problems or in business dealings. We desire peace and harmony and create that energy both aware and unconsciously.
Be careful to not seek out the approval of others too much during this cycle, as it can be difficult to know who’s telling the truth sometimes. Follow your gut instincts during Libra Season as our inner awareness is very strong. We have an extra boost of intuition now with mental Mercury also in the sign of Libra, so it’s just natural to study other folks and their behaviors and body language. Follow that little voice inside your head, it is strong under all this Libra energy, we all can be quite Psychic and will be able to see through other people quite quickly.
This transit can affect those with Leo or Libra Suns Signs or Rising signs quite strongly, but this energy affects all of us! Sun in Libra folks should feel a great big jolt of confidence and playfulness over these next four weeks, and Leo may be made more aware of how to balance themselves both emotionally and physically.
While under the Sun in Libra we will strive to keep some sort of balance and greater equilibrium for the next month. So we are working on lessons involving such things as style, charm, tact, tolerance, and our social skills. The more shadow side of Libra energy shows us how we are more indecisive, passive-aggressive, fake or superficial, and a bit narcissistic. Learn from this time, as there is going to be a whole lot of Libra energy surrounding us for the next month or so.
The Seasons are changing once again and on September 23, 2019, the Sun moves into the sign of Libra, which marks the official beginning of the Autumn Equinox! This will be the turning point of the year, as we shift into a totally different energy, but there’s nothing to fear because it’s been rough folks. This shift into the Fall Season can actually help ease tensions and bring some calm into the mix.
Not only has the Sun moved into charming Libra, but so has the “great messenger” Mercury and the Goddess of Love, Venus. So our core-self, minds, and hearts are in sync, besides the constant need for balance these aspects turn our focus towards our relationships, so these influences bring in the energy of balance, cooperation, and equality.
Libra’s energy is all about finding balance, so we can learn how to live in harmony with others, especially in our relationships (of all kinds). Our partnerships and relationships will become very important during this time. This sign teaches us to look at life from a more compassionate but also accommodating perspective. It’s a good time to get out there and date if you are looking for love, as this is a time when the energies tend to create peace and harmony in the world. Generally speaking, this sign helps us to be the best versions of ourselves that we can be.
The Equinox gives us an opportunity to experience something new or different. This big shift in energy will be more focused on allowing our goals to meet their full potential. This has already been a difficult time for Mother Nature, she is still in a huge cleansing process that was initiated by the Eclipses over the summer. You are invited to work on balancing yourself and finding some sort of stability as well. However, as we work on getting our equilibrium back we will have to take on some lessons at first, so we have to accept this is the process we must follow, as the Universe puts us through tests and challenges. However, these lessons often help us to grow, mature, and evolve.
The energies have already been slowing down with Saturn going Direct and out of Retrograde just a week ago, so as we go through this major shift we can start to finally arrive, this means we will get those moments of peace where we can catch our breath and just take a long break! It’s time to move forward with your future goals and plans, you might just find others who will want to help or support you while reaching your goals.
The human race has been going through a lot and we can start to finally recover if only for a short time. The things or projects we put off and didn’t take care of will start to show up to be dealt with and finished over the Last Quarter of 2019. As new paths are opened and revealed, our reality will change and the Equinox’s energies can really help smooth things over as we adjust to these changes.
It is very important to embrace all that is happening now, and not hide from challenges, so trust yourself and your inner voice to guide you. Listen to your higher-self and your intuition. Many of you are already feeling drained and just off, but once we get on the paths we are supposed to be on 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 next during the last part of 2019. Don’t look back, the past is behind you, focus on creating a bright and amazing future instead!
Just a reminder for next month, on Halloween Mercury turns Retrograde for three weeks, this is a time to turn inward and do some sort of inner healing work, especially on how we hold and use our own personal power in the world. This will be a time when our thoughts can easily turn towards past lovers and ex-spouses or even just attractions we once had. Our feelings may be surprising, but for some folks especially woman you can become obsessed and get stuck on a past ex-lover, boyfriend, or attraction! So this can be an emotionally draining and demanding time. However, it is a great time to work at releasing those unhealthy attachments you have to the past and reclaim your power, and finally let those folks go on a deeper soul level!
This energy rolling in now will start to calm things down a bit, and should help us with the more difficult issues we’ve been having, so we basically are going into a time of recovery! Just give the Cosmos a little 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.
On September 14th, the planet Venus shifts into its home sign of Libra.
Venus rules over love, beauty, money, and relationships. The Zodiac sign of Libra rules our love lives, relationships, and is often about balancing our relationships with a significant other and taking care of ourselves in harmony.
We have had more than our fair share of challenges this year, so this is a wonderful opportunity to refocus on what really matters to us the most, as we can manifest what we desire from the heart! This can include those folks who have been there for us the most. If you have had some sort of rift or conflict with someone lately, this is an ideal time to fix things. So put your differences aside and find some common ground to meet in the middle.
Even if you are one of those kind of people who enjoys being alone, this lovely energy can lead you out and around others, so you might meet up with a family member or a friend during this time, and some of us will be way more social than usual.
Since the Goddess herself, Venus and the sign of Libra both are about what is beautiful, it’s a good time to pamper yourself and do something that makes you feel good about yourself once again. During Venus’s run through Virgo over the last month we had to focus on helping others and our community. Now the focus is turned toward our partners, lovers, and even close family and friends. Perhaps just go get a mani-pedi or take a spa day, or take the whole day off from your responsibilities if at all possible and relax. Do something for yourself you deserve it!
We should also be careful about putting on appearances just to keep the peace. This is an extremely accommodating energy, so we might hold back on saying how we are really feeling, or from asserting ourselves, especially if we feel it’s going to cause any inconvenience for someone we care for. We can be false or superficial to keep out of conflict. Some of us will go to great lengths just to avoid any kind of disagreements.
Take this time to tap into your creative side and do something well, creative! Perhaps spend some time in a place that is beautiful to you, or go on a mini vacay with your lover. It’s can be a beautiful time for couples, as long as you don’t ignore problems that should be dealt with, or even worse try to runaway from them.
During this cycle we can have the urge to merge with people we know and strangers both. So if you’re single or whatever, don’t fool yourself and think you’re in love just because you had that one special date or night out. Give it some time to really get to know them first, as we all can be rather charming during this time.
Venus will be in Libra through October 8th. I hope you have a lovely Venus in Libra time. ~Ruby
The Full Moon energy is building now and will occur Friday the 13th late at night, or very early Saturday morning depending on what part of the world you live in. So starting anytime today you can work on “Setting Intentions” with the Full Moon energy. This is a time to work on releasing from your heart what you no longer need, or what isn’t working for you! Work with the Cosmos and write a letter or meditate, and tell the Universe what it is you want to see happen in your life next. Let go of what needs to be done, be it a situation, person, or change in behavior. What do you want to release? What would you like to create or manifest? It can be about anything. You might be pleasantly surprised with the outcome, as this Full Moon illuminates the truth around the same time as some other cosmic connections are opening up doors for us to release old Karmic Debt. This is your chance to wipe the slate clean! And you get to rewrite the next chapters of your life! Think about your hopes, dreams, and desires, and feel it as if you already have obtained your goals.
Read on below to learn how!
This is an opportune time to ask the Universe to release whatever you need to let go, or do away with, and 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 releasing old pains and experiences that might have held you down or blocked you up! It’s time to get the old stuff out so the new energies can come in!
During the Full Moon, we often experience an energy shift, so we must release the old energies to open up doorways so to speak, so the new energies can be allowed into our lives.
What to Release under a Full Moon:
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
Have a conversation with the Universe, (your higher power, Spirit Guides, Angels, God, etc) whatever you call it! Ask for the “Full Moon” to help illuminate the path that leads you towards your deepest desires. Simply ask to be put on a path towards your dreams and goals.
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 sometimes magic happens and it does. The “Full Moon” illuminates the truth and is symbolic for seeing what’s been hidden, secret, tucked away, or suppressed. So ask for the truth to be revealed during this time. You just might be pleasantly surprised by what you learn.
Setting Intentions Guide
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 some positive energy 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 because it feels safe and secure. But also 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. This can be very different for everyone. Just makes sure to use whatever tools or colors that make you feel calm, happy, and peaceful.
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! Then you write what you’d like the Universe to bring in and remove both. Simply write your deepest truths, wishes, and questions down. Think about what energy 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.
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 some sort of earth-shattering sign that shows up like a lightning bolt! More often it’s simply a bird landing in your backyard, or hearing a song on the radio that seems to have special meaning just for you. 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!
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 kind 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 Moons light show you the way! Hopefully, at the very least you will be put on a path towards what you truly desire, all while letting go of what you don’t need in your life anymore. It truly is a miraculous process once you learn how to work with the Moon’s energies.
The Harvest Full Moon illuminates the night sky on Friday the 13/14, 2019, in the sign of Pisces depending on what time zone you live in, and occurs right after Midnight Eastern Time and before Midnight Central Time.
The Moon in creative Pisces and is making an opposition to the Sun in detailed Virgo. This Full Moon is a powerful, strong emotional time due to it being under such sensitive Zodiac Signs. 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, but if not you should focus on balancing your logical mind with your intuition to help solve problems. This is about our thoughts versus our feelings, or left and right brain ways of thinking.
This particular Full Moon can bring up issues that have to do with everyday routines, physical health, and a need for order. This is about combining our everyday world with our visions, spiritual health, wellness, and disorders, with the infinite or some kind of spiritual energy. The Virgo (Sun) energy helps us with the tools we use to deal with our daily lives, while the Pisces (Moon) energy helps us connect to our spirituality and create some sort of healing, so we can better deal with our physical reality and limitations.
This Full Moon can help us develop and learn how to express our feminine energies by understanding how to trust our intuition. Practice allowing your feelings to move through you and flow as these energies do. Learn how to have compassion for all things and yourself during this Full Moon. Ask yourself what you need to forgive and release, and what might be blocking you from happiness. To the best of your ability use the healing powers of the Pisces Full “Super Moon” to help.
If you need some balance in your life this Full Moon can help you learn how to maintain order in your everyday life, without neglecting your spiritual health and wellness. Life can get quite chaotic if you ignore either side of the Full Moon energy. This is a time when we must release something like an old behavior, people or a situation, as this is a time of endings but also new beginnings. Whatever you started thinking about or working on during the last New Moon a few weeks ago will now start to come into being. This is a time of romance and relationships as well.
This Full Moon also occurs right after the Sun has aligned with passionate Mars, and the magical Moon has aligned with the dreamy energy of Neptune. But Mars and Neptune also form a tense opposition, and then sweet Venus and mental Mercury form a conjunction, and finally the Moon will harmonize with powerful Pluto! Unless you know your Astrology this can sound so confusing, but really this is about dealing with many different cosmic influences at once. This seems to be the theme for the month of September. Read on to understand how to handle all of this energy!
This is a highly concentrated potent energy that can feel more intense than a regular Full Moon, and it is “Truth Telling Time” folks, as what’s been kept secret, hidden, lost, suppressed, or denied seems to come out and is revealed. So we can feel overly excited or anxious a few days before the Full Moon occurs, as this connection between the Sun and Moon create intense energy until the Moon swells to its Full illumination. Ask for what you would like to know and the Universe will reveal things during this time. Look for signs and symbols both in life and your dreams and visions to figure it out.
A little Fun Fact is that this Full Moon is considered to be what’s called a “Micro-Moon.” This cute little Full Moon is actually the exact opposite of a “Super-Moon”, which is closer to planet Earth. So a Miro-Moon is actually at its farthest point from the Earth. Some scientists believe this does lessen its effects on the planet, but I will bet many others don’t agree, but we love this little guy irregardless. You go little Micro-Moon!
During this time there are usually sudden discoveries made, and we can experience epiphanies and sudden flashes of insight that help Keep Things Real! Our high expectations can get us into some trouble, as we expect more! Our imaginations are very strong, therefore we have a rich fantasy game going on right now, and can have some issues dealing with reality.
Feelings of needing to change course or escaping can also be very strong during this time, which can be fine if we escape in healthy ways through such things as music, movies, entertainment, or just reading a good book. Since this is an emotionally intense time, some folks will turn to alcohol or drugs to forget about their troubles and pain. Not only can this be a problem, but it can be downright dangerous with foggy Neptune’s energy involved. We can lose control and slip into some sort of lost energy, as we cross boundaries and overdo things. Please be careful and keep a watchful eye out for anyone you see struggling, as depression can set in and poor choices can be made. Help those that can’t help themselves, or those who are feeling badly!
September time seems to have some wonderful opportunities that we just haven’t experienced in awhile, so why not read on to learn how these Cosmic Connections are going to affect you and your life for the month.
A New Moon at the end of August helped kick off September time, and with the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Mars all in the sign of Virgo we are best off during the first week of the month to work on organizing, editing, and paying attention to the details of our health and work. This is a very fertile and productive time, and is good for freeing ourselves from situations that are restricting or limiting us from finding happiness in our daily lives, routines, work, and health. With all of the personal planets in the sign of practical Virgo, we can create some sort of harmony, and they are all harmonizing with Saturn and Pluto, but are also bumping up against Jupiter and Neptune this month. So we have many opportunities to get our lives together, but we may have to let go of our high expectations.
September 3: Sun conjuncts Mars When these two strong energizers come together, the energy alone can be productive but also can create a lot of friction, the choice is yours on just where you want to direct this amazing energy. It’s important to be strong and confident but do not allow yourself to get into little ego battles. With both planets in practical Virgo, this is a good few days to work on projects or too get involved in something near and dear to your heart that involves helping others.
September 9: Mars trines Saturn We can be much more disciplined but productive at this time, as this stong energy creates a harmonious influence. This helps make it easier to organize and harness these energies to make good use of. Mars in helpful Virgo and Saturn in more ambitious Capricorn can help us make detailed plans to reach our goals. Just make sure to take advantage of this hard-working energy so you can get things organized in your life.
September 14: Full Moon in Pisces The Full Moon on the 14th occurs in the sign of Pisces at the same time as a Mars-Neptune opposition. Pisces is considered to be the most sensitive sign of the Zodiac, and under the Full Moon energy both are known for amplifying emotions. This can be a very overwhelming time, where we just aren’t feeling as tough as usual, so be sure to be extra careful with others as they are feeling emotionally vulnerable and sensitive as well, and you may not know what other folks are feeling or going through. Make sure and get plenty of downtime to not only replenish your energy but to also calm your nerves.
This Full Moon is trying to remind us that we all need to pay extra close attention to our spiritual and emotional wellness. The way we find balance at this time is to express what we need on a spiritual level while maintaining our everyday lives. Under these energies, we can either choose to live in chaos or order, and with the Mars-Neptune opposition at play, there also can be a stronger sense of urgency as we try to restore balance, and some uncertainty, as we learn what’s real and not. As it’s a good time to Zen it out folks and maybe do some meditation, affirmations, journal-writing, listen to calming music, or exercise, whatever you do just do anything that feeds your soul and helps you connect to your spirituality, whatever that may look like.
September 14: Mercury enters Libra During this cycle is a great time to work on resolving recent conflicts, arguments, and misunderstandings as the planet of communication enters the more accommodating sign of Libra. Under this influence we just want to get along with everyone really, with all the chaos and turmoil over the summer, the world can use this energy to help us make amends as it is easier to apologize or to at least try to get along. This can be a wonderful time to be more social and get together with friends and family.
September 14: Venus enters Libra The planet Venus rules over love, beauty, money, and relationships, and is entering its home sign of Libra which rules over such things as love, and relationships. We have had more than our fair share of challenges this year, so this is a wonderful opportunity to refocus on what really matters to us the most, from the heart! This can include the people who were there for us the most. If you have had some sort of rift or conflict with someone lately, this is an ideal time to fix things. So put your differences aside and find some common ground to meet in the middle. Even if you are one who likes to be alone, this lovely energy can lead you into being more social even if it’s just a family member or friend. Since the planet Venus and the sign of Libra both are about all things beautiful, so it’s a good time to pamper yourself, and do something that makes us feel good about ourselves once again, perhaps just mani-pedi or take a whole spa day, or just take whole day off from your responsibilities if at all possible and relax! We should also be careful about putting on appearances just to keep the peace, as we might hold back on saying how we are really feeling, or from asserting ourselves, so we can be false or superficial. Take this time to tap into your creative side and do something well, creative. Perhaps spend some time in a place that is beautiful to you. This aspect runs through October 8.
September 18: Saturn goes direct Saturn that planet of rules and Lord of Karma, finally turns direct form it’s Retrograde phase. This influence is real big on reminding us about taking care of our responsibilities, and bringing our heads out of the clouds so we can deal with any plans or goals we have here on planet Earth! In the mood for a Reality Check? During this time anything we are not taking care of and what we need to be focusing on, can be up in our face to deal with. We can feel quite slowed down at this time, but that doesn’t mean you are not making progress towards reaching your goals. Just don’t rush things as Saturn adjusts itself back to its normal pace from its Retrograde Cycle. So for the rest of the month you can come across blocks, restrictions, and even some limitations, and it will seem like opportunities are not happening or that certain people are not cooperating, but this won’t last for long. Over time we will gradually be able to meet long-term goals and plans will start to become more clear. Ask yourself where you want to be at by the end of the year, and what would you like to achieve. And stay focused on your goals. Anything that Saturn is involved in is about hard work, and that will bring in the greatest rewards. So don’t try to take shortcuts now, instead pick yourself up by your bootstraps and get to work. Simply figure out what it is you want and commit your time and energy to that project or goal. Here over the next few months, you will be glad you did because rewards will start to really show up.
September 21: Jupiter Squares Neptune Jupiter gets into one last tense meeting with foggy Neptune in a set that first formed back in January. This transit pulls on us as we struggle with our expectations, faith, and drams. This is a time when we can be more easily MISLEAD, whether by others or by our own unrealistic expectations. We may have to deal with consequences from being disorganized or exaggerating certain details of our lives, or for being neglectful or extravagant when buying things.
This energy tends to cause restlessness, as our everyday routines can feel quite unsatisfying now. This is a time when we can more easily take shortcuts and detours from our everyday routines. We can be fooled, tricked, or disillusioned by someone or something, so keep a watchful eye out and be careful and don’t avoid the truth. We can also start to form some new beliefs or philosophies, and try to justify why we are avoiding certain issues. This dense energy can cause folks to wander and be more confused, from a lack of being grounded. But that also means we can come up with more open-minded ideas. We just may have bigger issues with setting and keeping boundaries up for ourselves. It’s important this week to stay in reality to the best of your ability, by setting some rules around your routines and regular schedules. This influence can give us some inspiration spiritually speaking as we let go of old false beliefs, expectations, and dreams that were going nowhere in the first place.
During this same time Jupiter also gets into a somewhat challenging aspect with wild Uranus, and this to causes more high anxiety and restlessness, especially if our dreams are not forming and don’t seem to feel fulfilling or are inspiring us. Watch yourself this week for going off on some strange tangent or trip to nowhere, as we can get into the strangest, oddest situation that are completely impractical.
September 23: Sun enters Libra The Sun shifts once again around the Zodiac and as it does every September and enters the sign of Libra. This is also the Autumnal Equinox north of the equator and the Spring Equinox in the southern hemisphere of the planet. This is a special energy that helps us to find balance in our lives as we prepare for this new season. Oddly enough the word Equinox comes from the Latin word that means Equal. Libra is the sign of balance, fairness, and equality. So use this influence and spend some quality time with family and friends. The Sun will remain in Libra through October 23.
September 28: New Moon in Libra To close out the month a New Moon occurs in the sign of Libra, this is indeed a social time that is filled with the hope and promise of New Beginnings. Luckily, also during this time lovely Venus and lucky Jupiter make a beautiful connection that can have you feeling more optimistic and cooperative. This is time for taking care of and nurturing any relationships you want to see grow and become stronger, or even just more important. This is also a good time for negotiations and partnering, and we can find ways to solve conflicts.
If you are already in a committed relationship, any time you spend together during this cycle can really strengthen the bonds you already have. Do things that make you happy or that are more pleasurable as Libra is ruled by Venus and all things that are considered to be beautiful. So take long walks, plan out a mini-vacay, go out to eat at your fav restaurant, or go see a love-themed movie. If you are interested in meeting someone new, get out there and mingle during this time folks and attend special events and accept those invites because you just might meet someone special.
Currently, there are five planets in the sign of Virgo, and surprising Uranus is in Taurus, and powerful Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn. So most of our ruling planets in our solar system are in Earth Signs. That’s a whole lot of one element. The Earth signs seem to help keep the energies more grounded, which is what we need desperately! Since we were under so much Leo season for a whole lot of the summer, and things got kind of crazy. So if you are an Earth Sun or Rising Sign, so Taurus, Capricorn, or Virgo this can be an especially good weekend for you.
As we move into September time the energies will be strongly focused on what’s called a T-Square, this tense energy will affect all of us for the next few weeks, but especially Sagittarius, Pisces, Gemini, and Virgo. The truth will be told and skeletons will come tumbling out out of the closet, so secrets and dirty little lies are revealed! There will be lots of chit chat, gossip, and rumors going around. We get to see the truth more clearly or what’s been hidden or even repressed. So if you are hiding something, it might be very difficult to keep it under wraps during this time. Secrets are hard to keep for now! And if you feel like someone is hiding something from you, pay extra close attention because those gut instincts are telling you that you probably are right. The truth will come out over the next several weeks. If you think you’ve got control of a situation or a person, and you are just manipulating them, you’d better think twice! The joke could be on you. They might already know what’s up as things are just more transparent during this time, and they could be leading you into believing they are clueless only to trip you up later.
Some of you may experience high anxiety this next week, but it will pass! Try to do something to offset your nerves during this time. Perhaps through meditation, journal-writing, or exercise. Time to Zen it out folks!
Now for some better news. This weekend is especially good for working on health issues that are bothering you, so if you want to change your diet or create a new healthy lifestyle regimen, then this is the time to do so. Over the next few days, there are some more positive energies to make long-term plans for business, vacations, and around real estate. As anything related to them can run more smoothly if you make the plans now, and why not be prepared when the energies are supporting you now, versus later on when it’s not the same. Remember Mercury goes into Retrograde again during October time.
If you have been thinking about heading in a new direction in your life, these planets are lining up perfectly to support you. And most of my clients are making major moves not only with their careers but also relationships, as many of them are shifting. So the majority seem to be affected at work in one way or another. But it’s a very positive time to do something different with your work as new paths are being made. Also if you’ve been feeling like you’re in a rut or stuck, this energy can help give you new ideas to get you out of it! Do some brainstorming and ask the Universe for help!
The New Moon in Virgo energy will last all weekend long. So if you haven’t had a chance to Set Intentions yet, you can still do so over the weekend. Simply make out a wish list of what you want and then read it over. Make sure to close your eyes when you’re done and really feel it. Over the next few weeks hopefully, by the time the Full Moon also in Virgo (imagine that lol), you can start to see some of your affirmations come true.

A Look Ahead The Sun Conjuncts Mars on September 2, this helps us use some of these new energies to get things done. Make sure to burn up some of the energy this influence puts out by maybe exercising or doing something physically active. Otherwise, this can cause us to lose sleep, and worry as anxiety levels can go high, and some folks will experience accidents and frustrations that can lead to erupting in anger. Now that you understand we have this strong build-up in energy coming, you can plan on offsetting it somehow by releasing it before it even comes in. Take advantage of this energy and get things accomplished, as you can be quite successful with any projects you choose to pour your energy into, channel your energy and stay focused, and move in more positive directions.
If we think back to what might have been happening on June of 2016, or July of 2017, that might clue you in on how this transit affects you. Take this next week under all this Virgo energy and make something happen, the overall energies will be much better next week for most of you.
On August 22, the Sun moved into the sign of Virgo, and will stay there through Sep 23. The Sun joined up with the Cosmic Lovers, Venus and Mars both also in the sign of Virgo. So for the next 30 days, we should be focusing on projects that are important to us. We can accomplish quite a bit over the next month. So make up a to-do list and get to work!
On August 24-25, Venus conjuncts Mars, both in the sign of Virgo. Love is in the air, and Cupid has saved up its arrows. The only issue is we should be more careful about lending anything of value to someone. It doesn’t really matter who it is or how well you know them, it’s just not a great idea over the weekend.
Cosmic Lovers Unite
There’s a cosmic connection going on Saturday the 24-25 with Venus and Mars, and it won’t meet up again like this for 30 years. This can be a strong time for romantic relationships. If you meet someone new this weekend it can be strong for the next few years, which builds a solid foundation.
This connection between the Cosmic Lovers, is the yin and yang of the Zodiac, as Venus is feminine and Mars is Masculine. (By the way either one can be a man or woman, it is the energy of a human being and their spirit I am speaking of, not their actual sex.) The Cosmos is lining up and is helping us connect with our lovers, the world needs more strong relationships again, ones that are real, honest, authentic, and spiritual. This brings true lovers together who can build solid foundations for the future, and not just a hookup or something superficial. We need love on a Universal level, to help heal the human race and the planet.
Again this Cosmic Connection is not for those folks who just want a one night stand, or for those of you who like to move from one relationship to another. This energy is not for those kind of relationships that are non-commital. Over the next few years, just random hookups and relationships that never really build together may not make it for long at all, which is probably a good thing. then we can focus more so on ourselves and with partners who will be around for the long-haul. The Universe is looking to bring together those who can stand the test of time and make their unions last! This kind of relationship needs time to develop, so the bond between them can grow strong and stick during the hard times for years to come.
This weekend is the first wave of energy in this process and the Universe is seriously trying to help.
If you are single, get out and about and meet people this weekend, especially if you are looking for true love! If you are reading this don’t miss this opportune time, and try to wait it out. Get out there and mingle. And yes, meeting people on social media is ok. And if you are on some sort of real dating website, you just might meet someone special.
These Cosmic partnerships are based on trust, respect, open-minded spirituality as true love is what the Cosmos is supporting now. With Venus and Mars both in Virgo, any relationships that comes together over the next month will be under this energy. These couples will be extremely passionate about whatever their path is in life together, and will tend to follow their true soul purpose. These relationships have a deep spiritual purpose for their union, and there can be some kind of supportive energy to help them on their spiritual journey to fulfill some sort of mission in life together.
If you are married or in a committed relationship, this connection can have a special zing for you too. This energy can help you and your partner create some sort of passion and devotion to each other, and hopefully, help you both make a deeper spiritual connection to each other once again that’s even better than before. These unions can help all of us in one way or another.
This Cosmic Connection affects all of us in some way but just not in our loving relationships, although it is mainly about couples and love. But wherever this union occurs in your own personal Astrology Birth Chart, shows where you should be making a promise of some kind, and what you should be committing to in your life. For some of us, this looks like committing to a new job path or in regards to your career. It could take two years for you to reach your ultimate goal or even higher, but at least you will know you are on your way to something special.
Uranus is the most exciting planet in the Zodiac, but it is also rebellious. Uranus is meeting up with some other planets to end the month with a bang! Starting around the 26th there can be surprises and excitement in the air, but this is Uranus we are speaking of, so even though these meetings tend to be on the more positive end, just expect the unexpected when it comes to it’s energies!
On August 26 – Venus Trines Uranus. This is a time when usually something good seems to happen, it can be surprising but there are blessings in the air on this day. Don’t lose sight that the little wins in life often are the sweetest.
On August 28 – Mars Trines Uranus. It’s a good day to start a new diet, workout program, or anything that has to do with your health and well-being. If you have already been toying with the idea to start something new that can benefit you physically, this a good time to start something up.
August 26 – 28, A between Venus, Mars, and Uranus comes together, again this means it’s a good time for love, money, prosperity, and happiness all around, so get out there and take advantage of what you can. This is the good feeling stuff folks.
August 29 – Mercury finally gets to go back home into its own sign of Virgo until September 14. Mercury does well here in this sign. Our minds and communications can go well for the next three and a half weeks during this cycle.
Also the Sun Trines Uranus on this day, this is the day to do something different, new, and fun. Get out of your daily routines and find some happiness out there.
August 30 – New Moon in the sign of Virgo. This is a time of new beginnings. It’s a time to start some sort of new health regimen or exercise program, it’s a great time to make healthy changes to your life. Perhaps start a new diet, and if you can stick to whatever you begin for just the next two weeks until the next Full Moon, you probably will change the habits or behaviors you have been wanting to.
Venus the planet that rules over love, relationships, and often money moves into more practical Virgo from August 21 thru September 14.
Love is expressed in a much more down to earth manner when Venus is in the sign of Virgo. So we tend to show our feelings in more practical ways, like by doing some sort of work, running errands, or just being there for our loved ones. Our love and affections are expressed through what we do for the ones we love, and the actions that are taken. This is what counts during this cycle. Since we more reserved, this is not a very good energy for communicating our deeper feelings. And here soon with so many planets in “Virgo”, it’s going to be really difficult to express our true feelings. This lasts through the end of September!
Love is more logical and comfortable during this time, so our relationships must have some sort of purpose with Venus in Virgo, as we are looking for long-term stability and commitment.
The sign of Virgo is an Earth Sign, so we can feel reserved but also sensual in our relationships. This energy doesn’t just affect our romantic lives, it also usually influences our spending and the way we handle our finances. During this time what we choose to spend our money on must have some sort of emotional attachment. But even if it’s money being spent on something more pleasurable, it must be practical in our own mind.
The bottom line is during this cycle whatever we enjoy must be practical and make sense. Even our relationships must feel like they have a sense of purpose, or there can be issues.
We might end up feeling a bit guilty if we are too self-indulgent during this time. Which means we stay feeling stuck and then end up doing nothing at all. And even though we start thinking more so about organizing our lives under all this Virgo energy, we can be a bit lazy, so we will need to find ways to stay motivated. Especially, now that Mars the sign that rules over our stamima and physical actions, is also in Virgo. And here shortly, the Sun and mental Mercury will also shift into…yep you guessed it, Virgo as well.
The sign of Virgo is known as the sign of service, so helping others and especially lovers (since we are talking about Venus, the Goddess of Love) during this time can help fulfill a deep emotional need.
The shadowy side to this cycle is we can be quite critical, nit-picky, and anxious with lovers and those that near and dear to our hearts, but especially with ourselves. Remember, no one is perfect and we all make mistakes, so try not to judge to harshly! And learn how to forgive. You’ll be a much more healthy and happy person.
Show the one you love how you feel about them during this cycle, do something nice so they know just how much you care. ~Ruby
The Full Moon occurs on Thursday, August 15 in the sign of Aquarius.
The Full Moon is opposing the Goddess of love herself, Venus, but this actually can help all your single folks meet a soulmate or lover. There may be issues however for those of you who are already in a relationship, as this energy can be problematic and cause tensions in any kind of relationship. So that maybe with our children, siblings, close friends, family members, or even co-workers. There may be some drama, as any kind of difficult relationship can get more stressed out during this time. This Full Moon energy can bring out feelings of jealousy or anger! So if your partner is the jealous type, try to avoid direct confrontations during the 14th-16th, and this may even be stronger if you have already been having issues or have been arguing for the last few weeks or so.
Even if you are not in a stressful relationship, there can be challenges around having to work extra hard during this time, so this influence can take our time and attention away from our personal life and family responsibilities. Be extra careful if you are feeling stressed out already and don’t over eat or drink too much, and try and get rest. This does affect all the Zodiac Signs but since the Full Moon is opposing aggressive Mars this can make the fixed signs of the Zodiac extra cranky this week, so all you Leo, Taurus, Scorpio, or Aquarius Sun or Rising signs can feel quite moody and tempers can flare. Take some “me” or down time for yourself and just relax and get some space somehow if you notice you are feeling stressed.
This Karmic energy can potentially bring in love interests and create strong attractions. So we can meet a Soul Mate of Divine Partner during this time, but this energy can cause upsets, and than people may do things that cause feelings to get hurt, and we can feel wounded by what is said or done. Also, someone might show up in your life and cause some sort of drama and exit just as fast. For example, and an ex might get ahold of you and you agree to reunite in some way, and a week later they are off and running right back out of your life. So be cautious about these kind of situations, and don’t believe everything someone tells you. If you are already in a committed relationship or are married, be careful of outside forces trying to start affairs, as this energy may create upsets as secrets are brought out into the open. The Full Moon is always truth telling time as it is, as the light of the Full Moon can bring out what is hidden, unknown, suppressed, or denied out into the open to be dealt with.
For all of you who are in a long-term or committed relationship of any kind, you may end up feeling bored or restless, So don’t make any SERIOUS mistakes right now! It’s not worth the risk of losing your relationship over! You might just regret it if you do anything with someone else, and you may not be able to get back together with whomever you kicked to the curb just for a one time hookup. If you are feeling anxious, use this creative energy and create something passionate in your current relationship, rather than looking for someone else to cheat with and risk losing what you already have. Stay away and don’t get pulled into looking at internet dating sites and apps, and don’t go looking for an ex or for someone from your past until after the end of August.
There can be some interesting developments that take place during this time. If someone was really bad to you in the past this influence can help you overcome that situation, as these energies are about Karmic balancing. So you may see someone get what’s been coming to them for a very long time. The good news is the Sun is conjuncting Venus during this Full Moon cycle, and this can really help some of you overcome some sort of challenge, usually this will involve love or finances, but it can affect any part of your life.
Full Moon Peak Times on August 15, 2019 Pacific Time: 5:30 am Eastern Time: 8:30 am Central Time: 7:30 am Mountain Time: 6:30 am
Setting Intentions Don’t forget to “Set Intentions” or to make out your “Wish Lists” for the Full Moon over the next few days, or before late Thursday evening when the Full Moon slips into its VOID cycle. Under the Full Moon you can also set out Crystals or Gemstones to be charged up by the moonbeams, and spend some time in meditation, and find your Zen and focus on what you no longer want in your life. What would you like to release is the question you should be asking? This can be a person, situation, or just an old belief or bad attitude, that might be blocking up your life.
On August 16 and 17, remember Mercury Squares off with rebellious Uranus, this is already starting to cause issues, as some unexpected news may come your way, and all the Zodiac Signs are affected but especially all you Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius, or Taurus folks.
On August 18, Mars the aggressor of the Cosmos will shift into more detailed Virgo through October 4. All you Virgo and Virgo Rising folks may feel extremely restless and have a stronger boost of energy, so sleep may be more difficult during this time. This is a powerful energy that helps us get through the end of summer. All the other signs may be more critical and picky than usual during this cycle. But it is a good time to work on any projects that need your focus, you can get a lot accomplished if you just stay calm and simply concentrate.
For All Zodiac Signs: Mercury entered the sign of proud and expressive Leo on August 11th, and runs through August 29th. With mental Mercury the planet that rules our minds and the way we communicate in the sign of Leo our will and way of thinking is very strong, so we can feel more confident and tend to demand respect. But we don’t mind expressing ourselves as much, and enjoy the finer things in life.
However, we can get quite upset if we feel someone is talking down to us, or is not listening to what we are saying. We should be extra careful, especially with the Sun, Venus, and Mars already in the sign of Leo! That’s a whole lot of fire energy going on and we can be extremely aggressive, pushy, or overbearing. Some folks do not understand how to handle all this strong energy, so if you start to feel upset take some time away and get space, so you can keep that Roar down to a purr.
It’s a good time to focus on your goals, and the more magnificent they are the better. This cycle can help us organize our thoughts, so we can concentrate for longer periods of time, which can help us meet our goals. Our minds are full of energy and our will power is strong, we are full of perseverance and have a stronger sense of purpose. We also may feel more proud and hopeful, so our thoughts just naturally turn to the positive. We can generally be more kind, easy-going, and cheerful, but we also can be quite opinionating, stubborn, arrogant, and forceful.
The little actions we take do really matter in this energy,butthe details aren’t as important because we want to get to the point and have some fun. We are much more expressive and a little dramatic, and can do well when we get an opportunity to express ourselves, so giving speeches or telling stories can go quite well. We also can be very charming, convincing, and persuasive because we are so full of confidence and pride, especially when we speak or write. Therefore, we should be mindful to listen to people to hear them and not just to reply, because we might want to chat a lot more than usual. Also, watch for gossip, it is all too easy to start talking about other folks during this time, and we can get wrapped up in what we’re talking about and end up oversharing private information with the wrong people.
With the planet Mercury ruling our thoughts and how we express ourselves in the sign of Leo, we may be particularly concerned with our looks and how we present ourselves, under this energy people feel more like dressing up as we are on the grand stage of life and everyone else is the audience. This doesn’t necessarily mean we will want attention from everyone however, we can be very picky and choosy about whom we draw to us and be actually more closed off or even shy emotionally about our deeper truths.
It is NOT a good time to starve yourself, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t diet or eat healthier, but make sure to eat several small meals throughout the day to keep your blood sugar leveled. Depriving yourself will not go well and can make you feel rather aggressive and moody! You might just crave extra saucy, fatty food, so don’t go overboard.
After working hard we also may feel more like playing just as hard, so set time aside to allow your inner-child to explore and have some fun, this is a very natural way of being under this Leo energy, and if we choose to ignore it and not allow ourselves some time to relax and enjoy something we love, we can become quite irritated and lonely.
Jupiter the planet of luck, abundance, and beliefs will finally be moving forward again and out of its Retrograde cycle on August 11.
Since last April, many of you have felt somewhat stuck and struggled with gaining clarity around important life decisions, especially about what you need and want to do next in life. But now, everything will slowly come back together again and things may just fall into place. Jupiter direct is going to be exactly what you need to get your luck and life moving forward again, and this time hopefully in the right direction. Meanwhile, wild and rebellious Uranus is about to make its big bold move, and start its backward motion into Retrograde.
Uranus turns Retrograde on the 11th, so expect the unexpected! And this can be good or bad. Some of you will receive some fantastic news, and things will magically open up and start going your way while the rest of you can get tripped up under these energies, and have some sort of shakeup in your personal life.
Uranus slow down for its Retrograde cycle has already been quite a big part of all the chaos and violence going on around the world over the several weeks. Due to its slow down while in its Shadow period (before its actual Retrograde cycle.) Many of you have been on edge and experiencing major high anxieties! And some of you thought it was just mental Mercury coming out of its Retrograde cycle, when in all actuality it was a combo of these two Cosmic events that have been so disruptive and hard to handle.
With Uranus Retrogrades we all can experience issues with energy, and have serious anxiety issues. Uranus is complicated but it rules over energy, and can cause disruptions, however, it also helps us think forward about the future, as it rules technology, the higher-mind, and our state of awareness!
Remember we as humans go are just one big ball of energy, so this Retrograde cycle can cause us to feel off and out of sorts. Once you adjust to it, many of you will feel more calm again. But for now you must ride the waves of this Cosmic influence and take things as they come.
No matter how these energies play out, August 11th is shaping up to be a pretty important day!
Here’s a rundown of the future Cosmic Connections for the next week.
On August 11, Jupiter turns direct in the sign of Sagittarius, and all you FIRE signs, Leo, Aries, and Sagittarius can be quite lucky through early December. But all of us no matter what are Zodiac Signs can benefit because the next week is just filled with amazingly high good energies. Also, if you are a Sagittarius or Gemini you could see some gains in the coming weeks ahead. But for all of us, things will start moving once again, especially now that Mercury is out of Retrograde.
Also on August 11th, Uranus aka George, (that was his first real name), turns Retrograde through Jan. 10, 2020. You may feel somewhat confused or conflicted over the next week while you adjust to its energy. Especially, if you are a Taurus born in April, an Aquarius born in January, a Scorpio born in October, or a Leo born in July! We’ve already been experiencing some chaotic energy due to this shift over the last several weeks with shocking events playing out. But as difficult as these lessons are to go through, the Universe is serving a huge WAKE-UP CALL! This energy gets our attention and helps us see how people are still trying to move backward, and are not progressing, and Uranus is about forward movement and progression. This planet’s influence helps us understand how to handle the higher vibrational energies that so many of us desperately seek. As it sends out amazing messages to help us understand what we can do next to build on to structures in our life and our world! It often causes rebellious behavior and revolution, as it is showing us to get out of our emotions long enough to take care of business and move forward and thrive. And with Uranus now in the sign of Taurus, its mission is to help show us how to save the human race!
Unfortunately, there will be more chaos to come during the Uranus in Retrograde cycle, and some of you may feel like life is taking you on a roller coaster ride and that you are spiraling out of control. But try to not worry things will calm back down as we adjust to this energy. Just remain cautious and pay attention to your surroundings for the time being.
On August 14th, the Sun Conjuncts lovely Venus, and oh what sweet energy this can be. It’s a time for love, romance, and socializing with friends and our soul tribes. If you are an Aquarius get out and date as you could fall head over heels for someone and end up dare I say in love! Some of you will even meet your future husband, wife, or partner during this time. All the Zodiac Signs can experience a strong love connection.
On August 15, there’s a Full Moon in the sign of Aquarius at exactly 22 degrees.
This is symbolic as the number 22 is considered to be a “Master Number” in Numerology. This means this Full Moon is trying to put you on a path to reach greater balance and harmony in your life. You can manifest whatever energy you are focusing on or through your energy into. Focus on what you want, not what you don’t want or have already. It’s a good time for teamwork, and just hanging out with friends and your Soul Tribe. It’s also a good time to buy electronics that are used for communications, so this affects things like computers, phones, or tablets. However, with Uranus in Retrograde, there can be technical snafus and glitches to work around, so this could get interesting!
On August 16th, mentally curious Mercury makes a tense Square to shocking Uranus. This is a day to pay attention and be extra cautious folks, as anxiety levels will be high and there can be some unexpected news! Expect the unexpected! People seriously can get out of control and take actions without thinking about their consequences first, as this energy is erratic and can be chaotic! This influence will start around the 14th with Uranus involved, as it always seems to come in extra early and it will run through the 18th.
On August 18, Mars the sign of motivation, aggression, and passion moves into the sign of Virgo until Oct 4th. This can have you feeling quite focused on something, but some folks are going to feel restless and getting your beauty rest may be more difficult than usual. This influence can affect your daydreams and night time sleep both. This does give us a burst of energy, as we roll into Autumn time. If you are not overly critical already, you just might find yourself feeling that way. But it is a good time to tackle all those little jobs or chores, as we are much more detailed than usual, so doing tedious work comes more naturally, and we can get quite a bit accomplished during this time.
