The Goddess of Love herself, Venus is shifting into the first sign of the Zodiac, Aries on Feb 7th.
The planet Venus rules over our love lives, but it also has a strong effect on how we love others period. This can be with family, friends, co-workers, and members of our community even. It also happens to have a lot of influence over our finances and anything involving our money.
It’s important to be thicker skinned under Venus in Aries, especially in our relationships and how we relate to others. There is no sugar-coating things under Venus in the fiery sign of Aries, and our words can sting. But Aries energy isn’t necessarily about being petty or mean. It’s just time to lay your cards on the table and say things like they are, or at least the way you see them. Our desires are strong, and we can express ourselves in such a way that it’s more spontaneous, enthusiastic, and direct! And if someone pisses you off, you can almost bet you’re going to make sure they hear about it! We don’t hold much back in our relationships during this time.
Venus in the sign of fast-moving Aries, can bring fresh new energy into our love life and around our finances. This cycle brings love in rather quickly, so relationships both new and old are more direct and spontaneous. This can have us acting more impulsive, passionate, extroverted, and bold in our romantic adventures. There’s a stronger desire for constant change in both our romantic and social lives. But we can make friends more easily and are quite fond of receiving and giving love and admiration. We can feel more motivated, and enthusiastic, and be a source of inspiration to lovers, partners, good friends, or co-workers.
While we are under the Venus in Aries influence we don’t worry about the past or bother looking back, instead, it’s a time to move forward. “Carpe Diem” is our motto for now, which means “Seize the day” while Venus is in Aries. As every day is new and full of opportunities, so every moment matters.
You can be very easily influenced by the opposite sex now, (or by someone more masculine than yourself) as it’s a brand new day, this is an opportunity to initiate something. The gushy, mushy kind of stuff is not so appealing during this time, and we don’t want to deal with apologies, as we simply enjoy the chase and conquest! But Aries energy is also about emotional security, so we are looking for longstanding relationships and love that’s going to last, but it has to feel new and fresh, or we can get bored quite easily and end up moving on to someone else.
Under this fiery influence, we are more interested in the hunt intuitively and naturally, especially when it comes to matters of the heart. Since we can feel more bold, courageous, aggressive, impulsive, and impatient in love, so our love life heats up and they can get rather interesting.
Some of you might feel bold when communicating, but more reserved about your deeper feelings or emotions. If you’re feeling badly or insecure you can get aggressive and downright mean, especially if someone isn’t expressing love back, or doesn’t recognize that you’re trying. This influence effects our way of thinking as well, and we can be much more strategic, so we can be quite cunning when it comes to matters of the heart or in financial dealings.
If you are already in a long-term relationship you can use this fiery energy to light some passions back into your relationship. If you’re single get ready, lots of people will hookup or have sexual relations, (after all Aries energy is ruled by Mars, the planet that rules over sexual activity) but the fires don’t burn forever and your new hookup can sizzle out fast!
It’s a time to make sure things keep moving forward, especially if you want some sort of new commitment in love or money. But also pay attention to what will happen in the long-term in new relationships, unless you are just looking for a hookup! Then have fun!
It’s a good time to enjoy the finer things in life, you can show off a little now, so indulge in luxury and extravagance, we can have an easy come, easy go kind of attitude when it comes to money and all things financial.
Under the Aries energy, we are much more direct and blunt, but this involves Venus, so it’s going to come out more so in our relationships, but remember words can sting. Desires are strong and expressed more spontaneously and enthusiastically. Try to avoid throwing temper tantrums with your nearest and dearest, and watch yourself for being too harsh or coarse with those you love.
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 week ahead seems to be somewhat better, but especially starting September 18th, this can be the best day of the week. Some folks will have a run of good luck on the 19th as well. This is a good time to launch something new, as it could be quite successful. Did you hear that folks, it’s a Green Light to get things moving, start anything you would like, just watch for the VOID MOONS this week, as there are a few lengthy ones.
On September 16 & 17, mental Mercury gets into a challenging opposition with wounded healer Chiron. This can bring up feelings of trauma from our past, as old wounds can resurface. We can be more focused on the past and what we should’ve done or what we could’ve changed, old memories playback through our minds. As we replay these missed opportunities and start to feel older wounds, we can also find ourselves either biting our tongue or straight-up lying about something that happened. Our motive is actually to not hurt others feelings and to protect them and ourselves.
Mercury Enters Libra
This planet of communication and perspective Mercury moves into more charming Libra from September 14th -October 3rd. When Mercury is in Libra we tend to be more on the friendly side but also we are diplomatic, which means we are careful about what we say and perhaps a little more cautious. Some folks will be somewhat false during this time just to keep things peaceful. In our relationships with others, we are more rational in our way of thinking. So it’s a good time for negotiations as we are better at seeing both sides to any given situation. While Mercury is in Libra it can be more challenging to make decisions on the fly, as we tend to ponder over things more so than usual, so it might just be more difficult to make up our minds. We also can struggle with asserting ourselves expressing ourselves because we don’t want to start any kind of trouble! For some folks, the fear of stirring up problems can be almost debilitating, to the point where you just can’t speak up for yourself at all! This is a good time for taking other people’s opinions and points of view into consideration as we can be fair and our conclusions sound.
On September 19 motivational Mars makes a lovely connection to transformational Pluto. This can make it a day of success for many of you. So the 18th and 19th can very special as it is a day when we can manifest what we want or need.
September 18th SATURN DIRECT FROM RETROGRADE
This is an extremely important time in our lives folks where we can look back to what we’ve done and our accomplishments over the last several months. We finally may catch a break even though this energy is quite stagnant right now. So take a look back to what was going on in your life at the end of April of 2019 when Saturn first went Retrograde. How much progress have you made since then? How much did you grow or evolve from your experiences? Many of you have felt stuck since then, but that’s all shifting now. Some of you are already getting rewarded for your hard work, and now we all can continue to move forward.
Starting September 21, Jupiter makes a tense square to foggy Neptune for its final time in a series of three meetings. Whatever has been going on in your life since last January and then again in mid-June will finally come to its strongest point and then to its completion. If you think back to those times you might be able to connect some dots, but remember under this influence everything is not as it appears to be, and problems can seem larger than what they really are.
The Morning Star turns into the Evening Star!
On September 26th, Venus shifts from being the Morning Star to the Evening Star! Venus has been rising in the early morning, but it shifts and will once again rise in the evening time.
This is a very significant Cosmic shift. When Venus rises in the morning, she is almost invisible. And all the parts of our lives that Venus influences seem to have issues. It has been studied that when Venus is in its Morning Star cycle there are problems. Venus seems to put out more negative energy during this time. This position causes challenges within our relationships, of course, and often things involving our finances, so partnerships and marriages can have major breakdowns under this influence. Relationships seem to be more tense than usual, and often we see folks have more money problems, as it seems like money is constantly going out! Single folks seem to have a tougher time meeting soulmate like partners also.
But when Venus turns back into the Evening Star, the energies shift and love and money seem to just flow better, and we tend to hear more good news. Our lives seem to start picking back up once again and big developments start to happen! Plus the Goddess herself, Venus is visible in the night sky once again. So for whatever reason when she’s rising as the Evening Star, Venus’s energies are far better and this has an impact on all of us. Hopefully, we will start seeing some good stuff manifest once again under her glowing light.
Venus Enters Libra
This week Venus is in the spotlight as she also goes back into her own sign of Libra. This shift is also the beginning of the Stellium in Virgo breaking apart, which for some is a welcome relief, but I will have more about that later. For the next three and a half weeks all you Sun in Libra’s out there might have an easier going time. But all the Zodiac Signs will notice people are more kind and easier going towards each other. This is really good energy to make plans involving someone special, so romantic getaways can go quite well as we can get some much-needed space together to concentrate on our relationships.
On September 16 & 17, mental Mercury gets into a challenging opposition with wounded healer Chiron. This can bring up feelings or trauma from our past, old wounds resurface and there’s a lot of focus on the past and what we should’ve done or could’ve changed starts running through our minds. As we replay missed opportunities and old wounds in our minds we can also find ourselves either biting our tongue or lying about something that happened. Our motive is actually to not hurt others feelings, but this can cause us bigger problems if we are not careful.
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.
On June 8, Venus the Goddess of Love, that rules over our relationships and often financial affairs enters the sign of Gemini, through July 3rd.
We definitely can be more talkative and naturally curious, under this influence. Our minds are whirling with juicy information along with a stronger than normal desire to share, however, we can get lost in conversation. We can be extremely indecisive but also aware, because we can read between the lines in any form of communication. This is a time when we like to multi-task as we’re motivated by our own curiosity. Which with Venus involved, the Goddess of Love, that means some people are also going to be more curious than usual about being free and not in a relationship, as the air sign Gemini influence can make us desire more alone time, and we can feel quite detached and therefore, this is not a time to take love or a relationship too seriously. Keep it light and fluffy folks!
On the other hand under this influence we are more flirty, so it’s no wonder this is a time of romance as we tend to date and hook up more. There’s a need for variety and diversity however, because our minds are so charged up that our hearts tend to follow. This energy keeps us engaged and interested in human contact and relationships. Since Venus is involved, this energy affects our love lives and relationships, and with it being in the sign of Gemini, we can be more fickle and picky.
Feeling more attracted to words, we can bond very easily with others on mental levels, but we are also more sensitive to stimulus, touch, and other vibrations that are being sent out on the airwaves. So we can feel quite good with positive energies, but very bad if we get around anything negative. The energy of Gemini is very empathic and therefore we tend to feel everyone’s else’s emotions from time to time, so you may want to be more careful about taking on our lovers emotional baggage and protect ourselves energetically. Shields up folks!
It is a good time to connect intellectually with others relationships, but especially with our partners, as we feel each other’s energies in a unique way. But we can be more fun, whimsical, light and breezy, but also quite animated and often funny in our relationships. So we don’t enjoy getting to deep emotionally right now, and would much rather keep our relationships more above the surface for now.
This is a strong time for sexual activities, and tantalizing communication, as a little erotica whispered in the ears of our lovers or partners can send them over the edge! But we should be picky and not just get it on with anyone who is willing. Don’t take a little extra attention or an open invitation as a clear sign you should be doing anything with just anymore.
Venus also rules over money, and since there are two sides to the sign of the twins, Gemini’s duality comes into play. As our attitude towards our finances is more easy come, easy go. We are cheapskates in one moment and spendthrifts in the next, all depending on how much mola we have in the moment. With Venus in intellectual Gemini, we tend to spend our money on experiences that will stimulate our mind, like movies, books, apps online, and writing materials. So even when money is low, we manage to come up with just enough to watch something fascinating, or purchase a good book, or just have coffee with a friend.
June has arrived as we have been already cruising through Gemini Season (when the Sun is in Gemini), that runs through the end of this month, so this looks to be like a very interesting time! It’s consistent but also an important time of the year. Since July 2019 will have both our next Eclipse Season and the next Mercury Retrograde cycle. June might just be the zen month we need to prepare for all the energy coming. As there are no major Cosmic Connections this month, but we do have two of 2019’s major transits, so certain energies are playing out in June that connects us back to where we were last January in some way, and where we will probably end up by the years end.
The New Moon occurs on June 3rd in the sign of Gemini, this brings fresh new energy into our lives. If we stay aware of the positive energies this influence brings, we can learn from others by simply being curious, as we can work on improving our social and communication skills. So we can learn how to think and express ourselves with our words. As the planet, Mercury will also be in its own sign of Gemini during this time, which makes this a good time for mental focus so you can Set Intentions or make out Wish Lists with the New Moon energy.
Keep your mind open so you can receive all the information flying around during this time. It’s also a good period to learn about all sorts of things, and how to enjoy different kinds of people and personalities. This lunation can help us get our Astro house of communication in order, so we should be planning and creating our future goals. Time to get writing pen to paper during this New Moon! Make a wish list or a bullet list about what energy you want to call into your life! What do you want to see happen next? This New Moon is pretty chill compared to what we’ve been dealing with over the last several months, so enjoy it folks!
On June 4 Mercury enters the sign of the crab, Cancer. Many of you will have to make some decisions around your family or other close relations, home, and if dealing with real estate. This won’t slow us down much, but the Trickster planet of the Zodiac does hit its pre-shadow of Retrograde cycle, (yes that is Mercury in Retrograde on June 20.) During this upcoming Mercury in Retrograde cycle, it will go between the Signs of Cancer and Leo, but remember that’s just the sign the planet Mercury is in and that energy affects every single sign of the Zodiac. This Influence can cause some of you to feel extremely negative or overly critical, cynical, or judgemental in your thinking. It will be important during this time to make sure and not react without really thinking things through first.
On the 6th of June, Jupiter forms a somewhat challenging aspect to Uranus, which again can cause restlessness if our dreams are not happening! And especially if what we thought could happen in our future is no longer fulfilling or is no longer inspirational. You might go on some hunt for something impractical or go on some unusual tangent that doesn’t last for long.
Starting June 8 Venus enters the sign of Gemini, through July 3. So we are more talkative and curious by nature, as our minds are always whirling with juicy information along with a stronger than normal desire to share. Our hands are usually in many pots during this time, as our curiosity motivates us both romantically and socially. We are looking for variety and diversity, as we are much more social, communicative, and interested. Connecting mentally with others, especially our partners brings great surges within ourselves. We are more fun and animated but we like to keep our distance when it comes to our deeper emotions. When it comes to the “love” department, we tend to be attracted to words more so and can bond very easily with someone on a mental level. We are more sensitive to touch and other vibrations that are being sent out, so we can react well to any kind of positive feedback. A little erotica murmured in our ears could be the very thing that sends us over the edge during this time. Be discriminating, however, and don’t get it on with just anyone who provides an open invitation. This influence brings tantalizing communications. But we can be super picky and fickle, as well in our relationships and with our finances.
On June 16th, Jupiter forms a square to Neptune, this second meeting in a set of three is the last one, the last one occurred back in January and September before that. This influence has caused challenges with our rather high expectations around faith, hope, beliefs, and our dreams. As this builds around the 13th or so we can start to feel it’s presence more strongly in our personal lives. It’s easy to fall for some sort of illusion maybe through others or by our own unrealistic ideas. There have been and will be consequences around disorganization, neglect, extravagance, and exaggeration. You can feel quite restless and this can be stronger than usual, and our routines just may not make us as happy during this time. So it’s easy to get off track and take some sort of new path, but it will be practical. This can cause us to wander and feel sort of lost because we are not grounded. Also, don’t be fooled as this is a time when we can be taken by something or someone, make sure and watch very carefully that you do not ignore or avoid things, and you might just change your beliefs or philosophies in some way to justify how you’ve been avoiding these issues. There can be issues around setting boundaries for ourselves, so keep your head out of the clouds. It might be important to be more strict with discipline, and what your normal schedule is to make sure you don’t get carried away. Spiritual inspiration can be strong as we get to let go of false beliefs, expectations, and old worn out attitudes.
The Full Moon occurs on June 17th in the sign of Sagittarius, this serves as a reminder to explore beyond your normal boundaries, and change up our usual everyday routines, and our way of thinking. This illumination is a time of expansion in all ways, so we should focus on what energy or adventure in life we want to explore and grow in next. Also, it’s all too easy to blow things out of proportion during this time, so we need to let go of what is no longer working for us or is serving our lives anymore. It’s a time to celebrate the blessings in your life, the things you have already made happen, your successes. Let this powerful opposition between the Sun and the Moon (FULL MOON) take your troubles from the past away forever! The Full Moon can be one of the most difficult times for us emotionally, feeling and expressing gratitude to the Universe can help us move forward on our soul’s journey. During this Full Moon, we should concentrate on our future plans and goals, there is a more optimistic vibe in the air with a sense of moving forward in a new direction, hopefully on that helps heal the planet and focus more so on the Divine Feminine. This energy is all about moving ahead as it is strongly enthusiastic in nature, and even its energy helps us take these actions. But we must remember at the same time, Full Moons are all about releasing what is no longer working for us or serving us. So there might be a lot of endings or chapters closing during this time as well.
On June 18th Saturn makes a beautiful connection to dreamy Neptune,this is a major transit influencing us for most of 2019. This is the second in a set of three meetings between these two planets, the last one occurred in January of 19 and the next one will come together in November of 19. This brings together the discipline of Saturn and dreams of Neptune, so it helps bring structure and meaning to our ideals and plans for our future dreams and goals. Neptune has room to grow and we are better able to show our acceptance and devotion which can help us bring new meaning to our work especially, but also traditions and customs. We feel more strongly and enjoy the sense of purpose in our lives under this influence. This can harmonize our spirituality with our material goals here in this physical existence or realm. The best part of this influence is how our circumstances because of our attitude can help us follow through with our dreams, as we can turn our visions and ideals seriously into reality! Work on syncing your imagination and physical actions now, so visualize what you want in your mind and feel it, and then take steps to actually make it happen, as this is serious manifesting energy folks, your efforts will be rewarded. Because there is a stronger belief and sense that our dreams are realizable in some way now, we can build a much stronger faith and acceptance.
June 20th is important because even though Mercury doesn’t officially go Retrograde until next month on July 7th, it starts it’s Pre Shadow period. Mercury is Retrograde this time around from July 7th through August 1st, but it starts its journey on the 20th of June. Mercury must cover territory that it knows already first, so we will be doing some backtracking during its Shadow Period this month. This shadow time will have us go over everything that has to do with our thoughts, conversations, negotiations, and ideas. There can be a sense of turnaround, revisiting things, and delays. So pay attention to everything that comes up from the 20th till July 7th. Think about how life is speaking to you, ask how do you receive your signs or messages from the Universe, or whatever you want to call it! It speaks to us through synchronicities and messages that are usually quite subtle, that you tend to write off as just a coincidence. But the more aware you are this month, and the more you pay attention to those signs and messages the easier July will be for you!
Happy Summer Solstice. Happy Birthday to all the Cancers of the Zodiac!
On June 21st the Sun will shift into more withdrawn Cancer, which also marks the Summer Solstice.
The Sun shifts into more private, emotional Cancer until July 22nd, and our attention is turned towards our family unit, home life, and anything that makes us feel at home, safe, and secure. This symbolizes our need to plant roots and to figure out just where we belong in this world, but the Cosmos may not be as cooperative as we would like, and we can feel moody and pensive during this time.
The Sun’s entrance into Moon-ruled Cancer not only marks the Summer Solstice, but has us more focused on our personal lives, and this includes building you and your family’s safety and security, while nurturing your loved ones and creating a comfortable life at home. It just makes sense that the symbol for the security-minded sign of Cancer is the Crab, this is a creature that takes its home wherever it goes! It’s important to take care of your social obligations, especially your professional life while the Sun is in Cancer, all your activities outside of your home will be more successful when you have a strong family and home base to fall back on, and a more solid schedule. Over the next month make sure to set time aside to relax and recharge your batteries and don’t forget how important it is to spend quality time with those you love.
On the 21st, Neptune turns Retrograde. This fog will roll in as it casts a veil over our normal practical lives. This influence causes us to temporarily lose our inspiration because we are re-working our dreams and wishes with what’s happening emotionally within ourselves. This Retrograde cycle itself lasts until Nov 27th, which means this will be a period of confusion and indecisiveness. You may feel stuck or like you are in limbo, but it is a great time to work on discovering your inner-self more.
OnJune 26, Mercury shifts into the sign of Leo. When Mercury is in the house of Leo, people’s high aspirations and ideas will be put through tests and challenges. But we must remember during this time Mercury will already be in its Pre-Shadow period of Retrograde. Therefore, there can be confusion of all sorts over the same. People can lose their temper more often once Mercury is Retrograde, especially in the sign of Leo with its pre-shadow period beginning June 20th. Those in power and authority are likely to make major mistakes and blunders resulting in utter chaos in the country, which is really the last thing we need right now here in the US, but this applies to all countries. Issues involving love and relationships are likely to heat up during this time, so relationships can be difficult as communication is fuzzy and confusing. Don’t allow children to overindulge or even adults you care for, as they can take eating too much or playing too much to a whole new level. Starting anything new or that you don’t fully trust should be put off during this time and waited out until Mercury is totally out of Retrograde later in August. Leo is ruled by the heart as well, so we should pay extra close attention to what we are eating or any bad habits we might have during this time.
Have a good month folks, and if you need any guidance during this time, please contact me to schedule a session at email@example.com or via messages here or on my FB page. Many blessings, ~Ruby
The Goddess of love, Venus is moving into the first sign of the Zodiac which brings fresh new energy into your love life and around your finances.
This cycle brings love on rather quickly, as relationships, both new and old are more direct and spontaneous. Under this fiery influence, we tend to hunt each other down in matters of the heart, as we are more bold, courageous, aggressive, and impatient.
Even though we can be more direct than usual, some folks will be more reserved emotionally during this time. Feeling more unsure about themselves, especially if the love we feel is not been validated or expressed back. Love can be challenging, and if your confidence is already low then you can end up being more strategic or sneaky when it comes to matters of the heart. Under Venus in Aries we don’t look back, this is a time to move forward with anything concerning love or money. Each day is looked upon as new and full of opportunities, so each moment matters more so under this energy!
We are not interested in anything mushy or things like apologies, we simply enjoy the chase and conquest of someone we have feelings for. Relationships that are more long-term can use this fresh breath of air to reignite their passions! If you are single than watch out for hooking up with someone new, quick and fast! Often these relationships fizzle out just as quickly. Make sure and keep things moving forward if you are wanting a new commitment around love or money. Pay attention to what could happen in the long-term with whomever you are interested in unless you are just looking for a hookup, as that can be much easier than usual.
Love can be raw and sexy with the love planet Venus in hot and bothered Aries, as it is ruled by the planet Mars which is always about sex, aggression, and passion, as they can go hand and hand. So our sexual adventures can be quite interesting during this time.
Edit With Venus in Aries energy, we say how we feel out loud and don’t like to sugar-coat things. “Saying it like it is” is more important at this time. We aren’t always mean necessarily in this energy, but we speak our minds and for some that can be difficult to take. Our desires are strongly expressed and we are more spontaneous, direct, and enthusiastic. And we prefer to seduce rather than be seduced, to chase than to be chased or hunted. We want to be in charge and in control, so we say what goes in our relationships now, and can have debates or even arguments over who has the upper hand in a relationship, but this also can come out in business affairs around money as well, as we can be a bit overbearing if not careful.
Have fun under this influence, enjoy some alone time with the object of your affection,
Love is in the air this week with the Goddess of Love herself, Venus making several harmonious connections to other planets. So grab your partner, lover, or significant other and enjoy this time together, as many of you will be swept off your feet. Love can be divine, and your soul put at ease and satisfied with a romantic encounter.
Starting Thursday sweet Venus makes a loving embrace with the dreamy side of Neptune, this is your opportunity to see your own reflection in someone else’s eye, and experience some sort of romantic dream in reality!
On Friday, Venus makes a stable connection to Saturn, bringing up some sort of reality check which can have folks discussing the truth about their relationship and how they are feeling in a very kind way. Important conversations in relationships can go well. This influence can make our love life a sweet mixture of reality and fairytale all wrapped up in one.
On Sunday, Venus meets up with transforming Pluto, turning up the heat in our love life, as this influence brings intensity and depth into any romantic encounter you may have!
Overall, these Venus infused encounters are the moments you live for in your love life, as your heart beats faster for someone you love. Those of you who truly experience these loving energies will have some amazing tales and life-long memories from this week to share.
March is always quite an important month as it’s a huge turning point and brings new fresh energy into our lives. There’s a lot of changes going down this month so we can feel these potent energies strongly. Many of you will continue to move forward and see progress in March, but we must be mindful that we are under Mercury in Retrogrades thumb for the rest of the month. Which makes it a good time to clear out old energies and get organized, so once March is over and we’re in Aries Season, then we can start new projects and follow our dreams with gusto once again. For now, this is a month to prepare and plan.
1st – 4th – Venus Square Uranus
When Venus makes a tense connection to shocking Uranus, our love relationships stability can be challenged with unexpected desires, urges, or events. But sometimes a challenge is what breathes new life into a relationship. We are going to start to feel this probably around Feb 27th and it can go on through the 4th. There’s an increased need for freedom and excitement, as this influence can test your patience when it comes to a loved one, or it can lead to wandering eyes or outright cheating! If you have been feeling confined, smothered, or just bored then you could end up lashing out in anger, or display some sort of destructive behavior. If you’re in a healthy relationship you shouldn’t have any major drama or problems, especially with an open-minded partner.
There’s a stronger need to experiment in the bedroom or maybe even on the kitchen table lol, as this influence pumps up our sexual activity, or satisfies a deeper need to increase our stimulation. The more demanding or conservative your partner is the more likely they are to stir up trouble, and you could end up cheating or having an affair! And if you try and resist these urges for change and excitement, and keep your feelings hidden or bottled up under this spontaneous energy, then it is likely your partner or friend, whatever the case may be, will express this energy through some sort of unexpected or sudden action.
Luckily, we aren’t as daring as one might think so we can enjoy entertainment, amusement, and novelties. If you are single you may be attracted to exciting or eccentric people, and maybe those who are more willing to take risks, or who are from a different cultural or ethnic backgrounds. A new romance or a love affair is very possible now, but be careful as these are likely to be brief relationships unless something in your personal Astro Birth Chart indicates otherwise. Let’s also talk about retail therapy, we can end up buying on impulse as shopping can be taken to a whole new level, so watch for spending way too much and for making unnecessary purchases.
5th – Mercury goes Retrograde
Mercury goes into its first Retrograde of 2019, occurring in the sign of Pisces from March 5 – 28, and at 29 degrees, which is the anaretic degree or point of crisis (which tends to be harsher feeling.) This Mercury in Retrograde cycle seems to resurrect old situations or problems that we thought we were done and over with, only for us to have to deal with all over again. This is a time when we need a lot of rest, and to really focus on being kind to one another. Some folks might be quite mean or cruel, but don’t allow yourself to go there, instead focus on compassion. This is a time to make sure and set some healthy boundaries, as we are more susceptible and vulnerable to manipulation and deception, especially during the last part of Mercury in Retrograde in the end of March when Mercury is conjunct Neptune, Pisces ruling planet. This causes our thoughts to be foggy and can make things even more confusing, and it being Retrograde time it will be even stronger than usual.
6th – New Moon
There will be a healing New Moon on March 6th, in the sign of Pisces, and this influence actually helps us focus on the magic of life and be a little more clear about how to start anything new. But it also brings about emotional uncertainty, as this magical New Moon bestows us with deep magical vibes and helps restore our imagination. During this New Moon take some time to create a sacred space that you can play and zen out in, and perhaps reach some sort of spiritual enchantment that syncs your physical reality and fantasies. Breathe and relax and feel out things, and look for the deeper meaning of it all. This is a time for creators, manifestos, intuitive, sensitives, and healers. New Moons are a time to regenerate, but this is also particularly charming energy due to it being in such close connection to spiritual Neptune, the planet of dreams, mysticism, and inspiration. Don’t let this opportunity pass you by to connect to the possibilities available to you. The veils are very thin still, therefore, it’s easier to discover the magic and use it in your everyday life. Our confidence and energy levels are quite high now so we are being enlightened with wisdom, so we should use it to our advantage.
6th – Uranus moves into Taurus
On March 6th, 2019, Uranus moves out of Aries, and into the sign of Taurus.
Uranus is the most exciting planet in the Cosmos, it brings about major energy shifts, and the winds of change are blowing this month when it changes signs into the bull, Taurus, where it will stay for nearly a decade! So there will be a lot of movement happening as we get adjusted to this shift. It encourages us to break down old worn out patterns and outdated structures so we can explore the potential of what could be.
We’re in hot energy right now with Uranus in the anaretic degree of Aries which is called the crisis point. It’s a time to tie up loose ends, as we can feel like starting and finishing things quickly while we have the chance. With Uranus in Taurus and with Uranus in Taurus, we can focus on a whole new shift, a whole new phase, a whole new decade of life.
Uranus moves very slowly around the Zodiac wheel and spends approximately seven and a half years in each sign. If you pay attention to the effects of Uranus as it goes through each sign, you will see just how unique each of these energies affects the political structures now crumbling to the ground. While Uranus was in the sign of Aries all these years, millions of us started to assert our political beliefs and develop commitments to fighting for the people and causes that are important to us.
The sign of Taurus rules over money, food, agriculture, and resources. With the planet Uranus in this nurturing sign, we can expect to see major changes in these areas of our lives on both a global and personal level.
This also will affect how we make, spend, and save money. And with all the sneaky nasty agricultural practices going on nowadays, we might start to see some justice finally. As these topics are going to be under a microscope for review for the next seven years. Uranus is going to shake things up and create necessary changes that we all need to continue to survive on this planet. Hopefully, we will see these changes help us all to be healthier for future generations to live on the planet.
20th – Spring Equinox
On March 20th, also the day of the Vernal Equinox marks the first day of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere. This is when the ice and snow finally melt and the ground starts to thaw and Sun shines a little brighter every day. It’s a promise of warmth and abundance to come. With the Sun in Aries on this day, it’s influence sparks the energy we need to get pumped up into high gear and prepare for the excitement that is to come.
20th – Full Moon in Libra
Also on March 20th the Full Moon in Libra occurs. Under the Full Moon we often find ourselves trying to balance ourselves out emotionally. This time the Moon in Libra and the Sun in Aries oppose each other. So this starts an internal struggle within each of us to equal things out, between how both these energies affect us.
Libra being the sign of partnership is about everyone else’s needs, while Aries is more focused on self and our personal needs. This Full Moon is making a close connection to the “wounded healer” Chiron. This brings up old grievances just enough, that we can feel left out or put second, or we might feel compelled to examine the pain of putting ourselves last just to get other people’s approval.
If you feel any of your old emotional wounds are being triggered, don’t ignore it! Make yourself understand why you feel the way you do, so you can release the old pain. Full Moon’s are an ideal time to liberate yourself from old trauma, anxiety, and old resentments.
So in many ways this month puts us into a state of duality, where we feel a stark contrast between two different kinds of energies that represent what we want, versus what we truly desire. The challenging part will be learning how to embrace each different influence and gaining the wisdom that comes from wanting to know what these lessons are trying to teach us.
26th —Venus moves into the sign of Pisces, right at the end of the Mercury Retrograde cycle, and tries to help us come out of the Retrograde with greater sensitivity, compassion, intuition, and spirituality. This is a blessing considering how agitating it can be when we are trying to adjust to Mercury’s shift out of Retrograde, as it goes back to its normal speed and pace once again, this is called the Shadow period.
31st – Mars is the planet that motivates us, fuels our passions and drive, and also rules over our sexual activities and how we handle our anger! Mars closes this month out by entering the sign of the twins, Gemini on the 31st. This brings in a surge of energy that affects us more mentally. There can be a stronger than usual interest in all that is intellectual, including our hobbies. We can enjoy communicating with people, especially face to face, by phone, online, or through social media even more so than usual.
We can focus better on new ideas and plans, and can get excited about what we come up with. This influence promotes strong communication, but it can be a whole lot of energy and be over stimulating for some folks. It’s like drinking large amounts of caffeine, and some folks may feel so jacked up that they have trouble relaxing because they can’t turn their minds off, so sleep and insomnia can be an issue under this influence. We may work harder to bring our ideas and plans to life, and actually pursue opportunities that make things happen!
Enjoy your month and if you need guidance or some clarity please get with me about a Reading Session.
VENUS ENTERS AQUARIUS Love is Strange! from March 1, 2019 – March 26, 2019
With the planet of LOVE & VALUES shifting into intellectual AQUARIUS, we have a more high-minded approach to matters of the heart, because we are more emotionally detached in our relationships.
If single you may desire someone to love that shares your same values. Still following our hearts leads us to seek out not only a partner but a true friend. If your already committed than you will be less interested in what mundane tasks you share, but you can feel more like discovering new, different, or unique ways of relating to your partner.
We are drawn to the unconventional, as we seek out freedom and independence in our intimate relationships and close personal friendships. We also might need some space in social situations. Even though we aren’t as attached this is a good time to meet new people. Get out there and participate in life and be social, perhaps attend events with folks who share common interests and goals.
Under this Aquarius influence, we can be extremely faithful to our partners and friends but it has to be on our own terms! This can be a wonderful time to strengthen the bonds of an ongoing relationship or partnership. But not a great time for romance, we aren’t looking for mushy lovey-dovey kind of connections. Remember we relate better in our relationships through our minds, so intellectually. If you want to grow closer to someone single or committed, work on building a more solid friendship with them during this time. Being true friends also means we allow our partners the space to freely express themselves, and also prefer to treat others fairly.
This is a time when people tend to get experimental in their relationships, or even when just playing the dating field. Since the SUN just shifted into Pisces we can enjoy some seriously sexy fun! (right there Mr. Gray! Uh huh!)
And since VENUS rules how we love and support one another, you may feel like doing some kind of charity or humanitarian work. We need the people who will fight and advocate for those who cannot do it for themselves. It’s a great time to help others especially in groups of different kinds. Join programs and causes you feel passionate about, and hopefully you’ll make a difference in someone’s life in one way or another.
Venus the planet of love, business, money, and lust changes Zodiac signs today from optimistic, adventurous Sagittarius to realistic, accomplished Capricorn. Venus will be in this sign from February3rd, 2019 to March 1st, 2019.
Venus moves fast folks around the Zodiac wheel in exact order, so we must take advantage of the energies she puts off while in the sign of Capricorn for about the next month.
With this placement, our relationships tend to be more on the practical side. That’s because we tend to see people for who they are, and are not afraid to lay the cards out on the table, as we simply take things more seriously. Since we appreciate maturity in our relationships, we take our time when it comes to love and slowly warm up to others, but we can make long-term commitments. There will be more focus on business relationships as well during this time.
It’s time to think about who you can count on. Do the people you care and love for follow through on their promises? The planet of LOVE and AFFECTION moves through the sign of Capricorn and draws your attention to the most real aspects of your relationships. No matter what someone says if they can’t commit to you and the relationship they are having with you it usually won’t last. So you will know true love when someone is making you the priority, and if they make some sort of sacrifice for you. Rid your life of those wondering Romeos and Juliets and open your heart to people you can trust.
Venus also is connected to our finances and what we value, from people to material things. Therefore, it’s the perfect time to get serious and make long-term plans in these parts of our lives. It’s a time to get real and take inventory around what’s coming in and out in your business and personal finances.
If you are a Sun-Sign or Rising-Sign in Taurus or Libra, you may feel more focused and serious over the next month. As your heart may want to make more practical and attainable plans for the future. If you’re a Capricorn Sun-Sign or Rising-sign, as long as Venus is in your sign, you can attract more love, abundance, and beauty into your life.
No matter what your Zodiac sign, enjoy this more practical, stabilized energy while it lasts.
September 9-October 31, and then December 2, 2018-January 7, 2019.
Venus enters Scorpio once again, this is a time of intensity, passion, and commitment in our relationships and around our financial affairs.
This is conveniently perfect timing with the Winter Season right around the corner as the mistress herself moves into sultry Venus, and any skeletons in your romantic closets can fall right out, so we can be more secretive about both money and love.
This influence can bring intimate encounters with someone sexy, magnetic, and maybe even irresistible. This can tie the bonds between lovers and friends on a soul level, and also is a time of healing and transformation in our relationships! But often to get to the point of healing you have to pull out the not so fun emotional stuff first and do some serious analyzing.
Venus in soulful, seductive Scorpio has the power to draw out what we love and what is superficial in our love lives and concerning our financial affairs, so secrets are often exposed. If you are cheating on a lover or partner, may I suggest you figure out what you want during this time, as this energy is going to draw out the truth around things like jealousy, secrets, abuse, and misguided behavior! Under the energy of the Scorpion we like to get to the bottom and below the surface of situations so we can examine issues of power, fear, sex, and desire more so than usual. Astrologers seem to consider Scorpio a tough sign for beautiful and sweet Venus, as Scorpio is not as concerned with superficiality and prefers chasing after love that will transform. So just like the Scorpion Queen herself, you may feel more like getting below the surface to examine things deeply in your relationships during this time.
Venus rules over our relationships and is more sociable, friendly, and affectionate. Scorpio is about passion and likes to go deeply into love. This means we might crave more meaningful and intense emotional experiences while Venus is in Scorpio. Depth takes hold and becomes more important than intimacy, and pushes us to give up on just dating as we desire something more long-lasting and romantic instead. The only problem is people are going to again experience the darker side of Venus which is quite wild, just think about what people do in the name of love sometimes, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows under this energy, it can get dark folks and you can get more obsessive when Venus is in this sign and jump way to fast when it comes to matters of the heart.
While Venus is in Scorpio our inner detective is on high-alert and wants to figure out what’s lurking in the shadows in our relationships. Those thoughts start to play more and more in our heads, and we tend to start looking at all the signs around us to see why we don’t feel at peace in our relationships. This can make us act obsessive and we can feel more paranoid or jealous than usual under this influence. It’s a time to dig deeper beneath the surface and discover what we are intuitively picking up on and get to the truth of any matter, the light is going to shine on what’s really going on. But we are more willing to stick things out to find some sort of common ground in our relationships and with friends, and co-workers or business partners. So we can either make things work or let it go! This is a time for a major reality check in our relationships if we like it or not.
Under this influence, we might experience the more Dark Side of Venus, which can turn her influence into something more mysterious and secretive, therefore we aren’t going to feel like playing nice like we have been while Venus was in the sign of Libra. Instead, we want to dig deeper and spark some sort of much-needed change in our relationships and around any issues we are having with money or our financial affairs. Just think of the world “Transform,” and that means things can get rough as we enter into a time of deep analysis and psychotherapy in our relationships.
Venus in Scorpio also brings out concerns around money and any power struggles you may be involved in. Those little subtle issues that you ignored tend to be more obvious and exposed under this energy. How our money is spent becomes a bigger deal now, especially in our partnerships where financial resources are shared. This also seems to be a time when we have a much stronger interest in making financial investments and when we can make powerful decisions about loans, insurance, or in any area of our lives that concerns money. (FYI: Mercury is still in Retrograde currently so give it to the teens of December before making any big investments.)
While Venus is in Scorpio we can feel intense and this can end up feeling like a heavy time emotionally, but it can be an amazingly transformative time. All of this super intense energy leads to stronger bonds if you take on the challenge of this transit, but it can be hard on us both emotionally and physically, but you can end up changing things for the better.
This is also a sexy time that could end up bringing you and your partner even closer together or help you meet a soulmate that connects with you on a very deep soul level. Either way, all we can do is ride the wave of this energy and keep ourselves and compulsions in check.
