July Monthly Horoscope ~ Eclipse Season

July Monthly Horoscope ~ Eclipse Season
by Ruby

July of 2018 is going to be a month full of surprises, where the second half of 2018’s Eclipses will start to come together, these life-changing cycles arrive July 12 and July 27. So the pace won’t be as slow as it has been (thank goodness), but we are in the middle of Retrograde High Season with five Planets in the Cosmos including Chiron the “Wounded Healer” all in their Retrograde cycles. Throughout July, these planets will be making their backward reversals, and at the end of the month, mental Mercury jumps on the bandwagon also going Retrograde on the 25th. Even though we are ready to move forward, July is once again a time to slow down, retrace your steps and handle any left behind or unfinished business. All month long, energizer Mars, structured Saturn, dreamy Neptune, and transformational Pluto are moving in reverse, which puts our energy and motivation levels down into low gear. And did I mention Chiron the wounded healer as well, yep also Retrograde, to bring up and out all those deep-seated emotional wounds, this can trigger you to relieve some sort of painful experience from your past or at least FEEL the way you did during something that was traumatic or painful, but it’s meant to come up to work through and heal.

Venus the planet that rules over love lives, relationships, and often money enters the sign of Virgo on July 9th, this is a time when we express how we love through practical manners and gestures. So instead of sharing how we are feeling emotionally with the object of our affection, we tend to show our feelings through the actions we take by doing things that make our partners and loved ones happy and feel taken care of. Expect the ones you love to show you how they care for you in the little things they do such as running errands, doing some kind of detailed work, or just making sure they’re around to support you. Under Venus in Virgo love has to make some sort of sense and have a purpose. It’s all about being practical under this influence.

Jupiter is now at a standstill because it will come out of its Retrograde cycle on July 10th, and will continue to move forward in the sign of Scorpio. Our bigger plans could get moving a bit more at this point, we should use this influence to tap into our higher-self to find a space of wealth and spiritual power for the good of all. The shadow side of this cycle is we can become more greedy and lustful looking for wealth and power, which can lead to some folks taking advantage of others. Things like abuse, misuse, ill-treatment & unfair treatment, and oppression will be some of the negative sides of this influence, especially with Jupiter being the sign of the detective of the Zodiac! We can uncover some seriously disturbing truths during this time, so if you have done something wrong you might want to find a way to fix it or the truth will be shown, especially around the time when the Full Moon occurs.

Eclipse Season begins on July 12th, when a New Moon – Partial Solar Eclipse occurs in the sensitive sign of Cancer. This can cause a crisis in your self-esteem, and in your relationships or around an event. The Solar Eclipse is opposing powerful Pluto which is about making a transformation to help better yourself. To evolve your soul so you can live a better experience that’s more satisfying in this life. This transformational energy will be common in our close relationships, so with a close family member, friend, or partner.

Leo Season begins on July 22nd, this is when the Sun moves into the sign of Leo. During this time we will see some folks show their asses plain and simple, with ego trips and battles, but hopefully, it is also going to be a time when people express themselves from the heart in a more authentic way! This influence can help us feel more optimistic and confident, so we can make important contacts and strengthen bonds with our current tribe of folks we care for.

With mental Mercury, the planet of communication turning Retrograde in the sign of Leo from July 25th till August 18th, the drama is going to be quite strong! Mercury also rules over technology and travel, so you already know if you follow my blog posts, Mercury in Retrograde is a very confusing time where we see technical glitches and malfunctions occur all over the place. People tend to get confused easily and forget what they are talking about, so be patient with yourself and others, and if you travel expect delays!

The Full Moon comes together on July 27th, and will be in the sign of intellectual Aquarius and a Total Lunar Eclipse!
A Lunar Eclipse is a perfectly aligned “Supercharged” Full Moon! When the Earth’s shadow falls between the Sun and the Moon, this is typically the brightest lunation of the month, but it will be shadowed by darkness due to the Eclipse. As the lights go out, our shadows, secrets, and repressed feelings that might have seemed too big or scary to get our attention and expression come alive. Changes that have been occurring sort of behind the scenes and deep within ourselves are brought up and out to deal with first hand, and we can see significant changes and completions.

This Eclipse is highly influenced by Mars now in its Retrograde cycle. This turns this Full Moon into a highly emotionally charged Eclipse. Mars is the planet that rules over our passion, drive, and anger, so it is certainly a time to be cautious as this influence can easily cause reckless actions to be taken, because of another harsh aspect Mars is making to the planet of changes, Uranus during the Full Moon time things can get pretty wild folks! This will also be a strong turning point within the Mars Retrograde cycle and for all of us in one way or another. It is a time to be extremely vigilant and grounded. Think before reacting, think before speaking, don’t let your fuse get lit, because once it does it’s all over with.

Overall, July of 2018 will certainly not be a boring month, so we should take notes around what we want to accomplish but also move cautiously and slowly, as big changes are coming in, but if we pay attention and understand how the planets are influencing our lives, we can better navigate this time and hopefully make it a month to remember for the more positive outcomes. I am aware some of this sounds super scary but remember a few things if you come from your heart in all you do, then you will do much better. And some of these stronger influences just won’t be as harsh to deal with. Learn how to observe life and not always react, this will change the game completely for you!

Have a safe and happy July.

June Monthly Update

June Monthly Update
By Ruby

86e2e91b24b40ba12d231809f03e531f
June will be quite an active month with lots of planets entering their Retrograde cycles. This is going to really slow things down folks. First, off Mars, the planet that helps motivate us goes Retro on the 26th, and both Jupiter and Saturn are already in their Retrograde cycles, therefore change is a strong factor in the June Forecast.
Also, Neptune, the planet of spirit and dreams is starting to slow down as it gets ready for its Retrograde cycle on June 18th, this can be a wake-up call, where we have an opportunity to see where reality has been distorted by our own ideals. The truth of what’s really been going on just might surprise you.
On June 13th, the New Moon in curious Gemini give us a chance to plant some seeds of change, and this puts our focus more so on how the power of our thoughts, words, and ideas shape our reality! This energy can help teach you that the way to shift your circumstances is to view your problems from a new or different perspective. Under this Gemini energy, we get the opportunity to see just how this works! We have a chance to use these Gemini energies to view many different perspectives all at one time and gain a greater understanding of how we think or view our lives and situations.
If you feel like you are in a rut or stuck in some way in your life, you can allow this New Moon energy to help you, by taking some time to pause and reflect on your thoughts about what’s been happening and to make necessary changes to your life. Maybe these actions will lead to new and improved outcomes.
On June 15th we will have to deal with mental Mercury’s opposition or connection to Saturn, this means we may have to make some sort of new commitment towards our responsibilities, or an important decision will need to be made at this time around what we are supposed to be doing. With Mercury in the sign of the crab, Cancer, many of you will have to make these decisions around your family or other close relations, home, or real estate. Actually, this Mercury/Saturn energy can help us think much more realistically about our current circumstances. But it also 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.
The Sun will shift from chatty Gemini, the information collector of the Zodiac, into more withdrawn Cancer on the 21st, which also marks the Summer Solstice. 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.
There also is an opposition between the “Cosmic Lovers” of the Zodiac, Venus, and Mars at this time. This energy can churn up our emotional state around what we desire or what we feel we are lacking in our lives, and this is mainly in our intimate relationships. This can cause your resentments to rear their ugly head, but that just means to watch how you treat your partners, loved ones, and close friends. Watch also for a lack of appreciation around what you have to do in life. Be grateful!
The Full Moon on June 27th can be a very strong dramatic turning point for us, as it is in Capricorn, the sign of completion and consequences, and is ruled by rule-maker Saturn. This Moon is closely joining Saturn the “Lord of Karma” during this time, and this can mean this lunation can have a strong sobering tone to it, so many folks might not feel quite like celebrating like usual under the Full Moon energy. But I say CELEBRATE anyway, there are many other Cosmic Connections happening which we can feel grateful for. This energy can help us gain clarity on our priorities and helps us realign with the energies of what is most meaningful to us in life. Which in turn, can help us focus on our jobs, relationships, and other pressing issues that need our attention.
All in all, June seems to be shaping up to help us see what we are supposed to be working towards, while we gain a very realistic view of the things we are doing in life. This can help us get ourselves more organized and right with what matters, and even though it may not be the most fun month of 2018, it can help us concentrate just enough on our responsibilities so we can play and enjoy our lives more so in the months to come.
Have A Good Month, Folks!

 Full Moon Ahead! May 2018

Full Moon Ahead!

fba1a1c0d26771192a3cfa0fed496a2b

A Full Moon comes together mid-morning on May 29th, in the sign of Sagittarius.

A Full Moon is when the Moon reaches its highest peak, and creates a fertile energy as it brings in endings, especially around certain people, situations, or things that aren’t working for us! But also New Beginnings! We usually feel more intuitive during the Full Moon with wild dreams and psychic visions. There can be sudden random Ah-Ha moments that you should really pay attention to and even investigate, as the truth comes out during this time.

The Full Moons light illuminates important paths for us, where we can see which ones we should be heading down, this energy takes us from the unconscious to the conscious mind, as we are made more aware of what has been hidden, kept secret, repressed, or otherwise unknown.

A Full Moon is actually one of the tensest aspects between the Sun and the Moon every month! This energy can make some of you feel quite nervous and anxiety-ridden, but for others, the Full Moon is exciting and adventurous time. It’s like watching two people ride a roller coaster, there’s always one person screaming in fear wanting to get off the ride, and then the other person who is laughing and having the time of their life! That’s exactly how most of us are affected by the Full Moon, you either love the energy or you feel nervous and tense from its influence!

The Sun in Gemini’s influence has us thinking more logically, while the Moon in Sagittarius has us following our gut instincts and intuition. Both of these signs influence helps us enjoy acting on a whim and promotes thinking outside the box.

Sagittarius energy shifts our focus onto the possibilities and helps us find meaning in situations. While the Sun in Gemini’s influence has us feeling quite comfortable in our immediate environment. Sagittarius grabs us and says, “get out and go beyond this world.” Ideally, during a Full Moon, we should be focusing on creating a balance between the Sun and Moons energies, this is exactly what the Full Moon invites us to do.

This Full Moon in Sagittarius influence can cause you to express ourselves quite boldly! We should pay attention to how we are communicating, and listen to that little voice that wants to guide you, it’s your sense of adventure and it wants you to experience something amazing. It’s challenging to keep our feelings to ourselves during this Full Moon. All our emotions are like a boiling pot of water, they rise up and must be released now. There are situations, projects, and relationships that are drawing near to there endpoint. But this also means there is “New Beginnings” on the horizon. You may feel an urgency to announce how you are feeling to finally find closure in a situation or to finalize something.

This also the time of what’s called the “Wesak Full Flower Moon”, which is Buddha’s Birthday, the celebration date is different in different countries. The United Nations will celebrate it May 29, 2018!

This Full Moon energy is also meeting up with Jupiter, Sagittarius ruling planet, and Jupiter is currently in the sign of Scorpio and is making a beautiful connection to Neptune in Pisces! It’s believed this is a time of great fortune and fame, expansion and growth! It brings out faith, hope, optimistic attitudes, and often great luck for some folks. This can be a great energy for travel, education, traveling, and imports. Great stories and fantasies will be told as well, there’s a strong sense of humor going around! Gambling can go well for some folks! And this also might just help with health problems.

If you add all that energy with the Psychic and dreamer of the Zodiac, Neptune, in its own sign of Pisces you can actually enjoy yourself! You might get to experience popularity. You may find yourself on some sort of spiritual quest into new or even exotic places on this physical plane, and in your mind. Love relationships will be light and fluffy but also felt deeply all at once under this energy!

This Full Moon is producing a specially blessed energy since the Goddess of Love herself, Venus is also joining in Trine between Jupiter & Neptune, creating a Grand Water Trine on June 1st & 2nd. Jupiter’s influence can cause us again to be quite blunt and honest with what we are thinking, (that doesn’t mean it’s the fact or truth.) However, with it being in the sign of Scorpio this helps us to see deeply into our psyches and gets us in touch with our deepest pains and greatest powers. Again, this does also help us tap into our sense of humor if all else fails.

Neptune is its own sign of Pisces during this Full Moon, this can have us feeling more detached from our physical reality. Since this is a Full Moon, some folks will choose to leave the planet, it can be a strong time for folks and animals to cross over, but usually, this affects those who have already been sick or suffering or those who have decided its time to go on a soul level. You might feel sort of spacey or oblivious, with no major plans in place, but if you get moving around, you’ll notice you can connect better to the Universe than usual. This energy can make you feel things that lift your spirit, like music, art or beauty can be felt in a majorly deep way, this energy reaches us beyond words in every molecule of our body. You just may feel like saving the world!

Venus is currently in the sign of Cancer, so this helps us to be more aware of how we are feeling. We can feel more compassionate, as she helps us face our demons and comforts us in the process. This energy assists with memories and subtle signs and symbols that the Universe is trying to convey to you. This can help most importantly open up our spiritual Heart, (Heart Chakra), and remember crying is healing.

This is a period possibly where dreams come true! Do some serious soul-searching starting now through June 2nd about what you want to see happen in your life. Set up the necessary steps to be taken to put your plans into action. And let this energy develop and grow, remember once you’ve done the work often patience is important and needed.

VENUS ENTERS TAURUS

VENUS ENTERS TAURUS
March 31st – April 24th

Venus the planet that rules over our sensuality, pleasure, and often finances or money is about to finally shift out of fast-moving Aries and into the more relaxed energy of Taurus! Venus is Taurus’s ruling planet as well. This energy affects all of the signs of the Zodiac by the way.

The planet Venus has been in the fast-moving sign of Aries for the last 4 weeks, which just doesn’t mix so well with more slow-moving Venus. (Venus is Taurus’s ruling planet), so it’s been a constant state of push and pull over the last several weeks with Venus in Aries. Now that Venus is moved into Taurus we can experience a more peaceful, serene kind of energy that hopefully will help us feel more grounded again, and it’s just more natural to follow our instincts and take our time in our relationships and around our finances.

Venus in Taurus is a content and possessive placement, so we are able to show how we feel more so, but also we can share our feelings a little too much. We tend to be more affectionate, constant, loyal, and faithful under this most romantic time. We are looking for security and what is comfortable as we value that which lasts in our relationships more so now and around our financial endeavors. Our appetite for pleasure is strong, as the energy of Taurus is all about pleasing one’s sense anyhow, so we seem to enjoy what feeds our senses even more so under this influence. We are rather sensual and seek to attract rather than pursue the love we are focused on. It’s more important to experience something real and tangible now and an actual physical expression of love and romance, rather than a fantasy or idea of what it should be or feel like.

The shadow side of this influence is the excessive possessiveness we tend to carry for those we love and care for under Venus in Taurus, our emotional well-being is largely dependent on if we have security that comes from a more stable relationship and secure life. Hence why we can be very possessive in this energy, as we tend to hold on to someone we love stronger than usual and can end up treating our partners, friends, or family members like objects that we own or want to own.

On the financial side of Venus in Taurus, money and material possessions become quite important, as we seek out higher quality, solid, and practical things, as we look again for what will last for the long-term in anything we value. Holding on to possessions is also more likely now.

This is a good energy to work on making your home and surroundings more beautiful, you can add a touch of luxury somewhere to your life now. So get to work on that because we all need a little luxury in our life!

VENUS ENTERS PISCES

VENUS ENTERS PISCES
February 10 – March 6, 2018

Are you ready for some romance in your life?
VENUS the planet of LOVE rules over our love life and our personal values, including money, is shifting gears from detached Aquarius and into more feeling, compassionate Pisces today.

Our perspective changes in our relationships with other folks as we don’t see things in black and white, but instead live and in color. The Goddess of Love in Pisces means we tend to express our love in a more embracing way, so we are better at forgiving and understanding others, and we can show more compassion to our partners and close friends. We also are more vulnerable and more easily seduced, but can be seductive ourselves. Pisces is a very sexual sign and energy for all of us.

Our hearts are more open as we see the beauty in others, which makes this a perfect time to meet someone new or to strengthen the spiritual bonds of an existing relationship. It’s a good time to spend time with those you love. Love doesn’t need to be expressed with words as much as we can intuitively just know what others are feeling!

With Venus in poetic Pisces, we tend to feel more tender and affectionate, but we still may be hard to reach on some levels, because there’s a stronger desire for something that we have a hard time understanding ourselves or defining for others, and therefore we are more difficult to satisfy.

Borders and boundaries slowly dissolve under the Venus in Pisces transit, and unfortunately, this allows the more shady characters to take advantage. Some folks may be victimized or deluded in some way, so we must watch for those who are more evasive, persuasive, and manipulative.

Pay attention to this influence, everything isn’t what it seems in love and around our finances.

SUN ENTERS AQUARIUS
Change Has Arrived!

Sun in Aquarius from January 19-February 18

Later today, the SUN shifts gears into strong-minded AQUARIUS through February 18th! This month-long cycle keeps us hungry for knowledge and experience. We now will be looking for new ways to do things, as we search for what feels original and unique! We become increasingly aware of what isn’t working anymore in our lives and strive to find new perspectives.
This issue with so many planets still in the sign of CAPRICORN is the energy doesn’t mesh well with free-spirited AQUARIUS, as it finds all the structure and order to be too rigid, cold, and restrictive.
Now that it’s officially AQUARIUS SEASON we as individuals are going to be seeking more freedom! We’re going to work very hard now to free ourselves from any restrictions, limitations, and inhibitions that keep us feeling blocked and constrained rather than safe.
All of the energies I have described above are going to be stronger than usual with VENUS the planet of love & values also in the sign of AQUARIUS now through February 10th! So this means there’s lots of movement, excitement, and exciting things that are about to be discovered!
Enjoy!

Daily Update – A Turning Point!

For all the Signs of the ZODIAC:

The MOON remains in more pleasing, charming LIBRA all day long, so we tend to be more kind to others and even accommodating. The COSMOS is throwing some seriously strong energies together now and we’re just trying to balance it all! There might be challenges, but in this energy, we tend to be more cautious and open-minded. Acting like grown-ups helps conflicts get solved more easily.

Also today, the “LAST QUARTER MOON” phase comes together, this is a somewhat tense energy actually and you may feel irritable and frustrated by it so anxieties can run high! We need some sort of release under this energy, feeling like we should take action now!

The planets connecting over the next several days are helping us attract a lot of opportunities!

The SUN is aligning with creative VENUS and is favorable with expansive JUPITER, and ambitious MARS is favorable with transforming PLUTO! WOW! We’re so plugged into the UNIVERSE right now folks, that many of you have been experiencing a strong connection to your dreams, they are more clear, vivid, and symbolic than usual. Messages, signs, and symbols are all over the place right now!

So much energy is being poured into our projects and relationships now that we’re more energetic, passionate and resourceful! It’s easy to make new friendships now, and for starting new projects, and finding new jobs or making career changes. We’re seeking and gaining attention and we like it! Our unique qualities and special gifts are being noticed and discovered if we put ourselves out there, as we show the world we mean business now.

Under this manifesting energy, we go after what and who we want, as we can attract things in a balanced way and can be highly successful now. Goals may seem ambitious but they are very doable now, as standards are high.

This influence has everyone feeling especially sociable, generous, and more tolerant! Relationships are going through it, as some are ending or hitting rough patches, as we notice what we want to change about each other, but also this is mirror-mirror on the wall energy, so basically whatever bothers us about our partners is showing up to help us change something also within ourselves! The intensity of these planetary connections is pushing us to make major changes in how we feel and do our relationships now, this is a major turning point for us, as we are taking actions more than ever now.

This is a very important time for relationships and business, as we can experience major changes in this life-changing energy!

An amazing time for business owners, this is beautiful energy for marketing, promotion, publishing, and advertising of all kinds. Our business sense is strong and we’re particularly good with money, as we have a better and deeper understanding around our business finances, and are on point and know what to do or not to do, our logic and intuition are meeting up and syncing together quite nicely.

Many of you are feeling like gaining control over your lives during this time, but you also want to grow, excel, and advance in some way. Don’t focus on what you have not done, now is the time to be ambitious and make important changes.
