Thank the Angels for their ongoing support.

Have Faith, and Trust that your situation is being resolved for your highest good.

AFFIRMATIONS:  “My Angels are supporting me at all times”

APRIL ENERGIES

 

 

April begins with the Sun in the Cardinal Fire sign of ARIES, the symbol on the left, and then it moves into the Fixed Earth sign of TAURUS, the symbol on the right, on April 20th.

Mercury goes Direct on April 15th!

Mercury is going direct in a couple of weeks, on April 15th at 4 degrees of Aries.  Just before the next New Moon.  Sigh of relief for all you people who are not too fond of this time, which can cause problems for most of us.  You might like to mark you calendar, in case you are making any significant purchases, or travel arrangements etc.,  Best to just be aware of it, and not let it take over your life, lol.

Other planetary activity this month.

AriesRam

NEW MOON  in Cardinal Fire sign of ARIES on APRIL 16th at 1.57 am BST @ 26 degrees.  I will be writing about this nearer to the time.  It will be an interesting New Moon as the planet URANUS will have a strong impact, as it will be conjunct(beside) both the sun and moon.  This will provide a powerful opportunity for setting intentions for change and awakening, and beginning something unique and unusual.  

Venus is in Earthy Taurus until 25th when it then moves into Airy Gemini

Mars is in Earthy Capricorn, and then moves from 8 degrees to 23 degrees of Capricorn throughout the month. Mars is close to Saturn in Capricorn for the first half of April, so a great time for focused energy, although you may also feel like you are driving with your foot on the brakes at times, as Saturn can slow Mars down!

Jupiter is still retrograde in Watery Scorpio, and starts at 22 degrees and moves to 19 degrees by end of the month.

Saturn is going RETROGRADE in Earthy Capricorn at 9 degrees on April 18th, and will go Direct again on September 6th at 2 degrees.

Uranus is going from 27 degrees of Fiery Aries to 29 degrees of Aries and moving into Earthy Taurus on May 16th.  Uranus spends approx 7 years in each sign, so this will be a major shift!  Moving from FIRE to EARTH energy. There will be a separate post about URANUS moving into Taurus.

Neptune will be 14 degrees of Watery Pisces going to 15 by end of the month.

Pluto will be at 21 degrees of Earthy Capricorn and going RETROGRADE on April 22nd.

Chiron will be at 29 degrees of the Mutable, Water sign of Pisces, and will be moving into the Cardinal, Fire sign of Aries on 17th April, where it will stay for a number of years. This is another major shift, as the Wounded Healer ‘Chiron’ shifts into the Fiery Warrior energy of Aries.  The symbol for Chiron, pictured below, shows the image of a key, and the placement of Chiron in your chart can symbolize your deepest wound, and also how you can heal.  ‘The Key to your healing.’

chiron-and-key

The outer planets, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto are slow moving and so they can be in retrograde periods for a while and lots of people are born with these outer planets in retrograde.  This can indicate that the energies of these outer planets can tend to be expressed more inwardly.  All these outer planets are spending quite a bit of time in retrograde motion throughout this year.

The next FULL MOON is on APRIL 30th at 1.58 am BST at 9 degrees of Scorpio.

Until next time,

Blessings,

Ruth.

 

FULL MOON IN LIBRA

FULLMOONLibra

The FULL MOON this month falls on March 21st 2019 at 00 degrees of the Cardinal AIR sign of LIBRA, at 1.43 am, just after the Spring Equinox on March 20th.

Libra, being one of the AIR signs, is associated with social interaction and mental stimulation. Libra is the most social sign of the zodiac.  It shares its rulership with Taurus, being the planet VENUS.  Venus ruling Libra is all about relationships, co-operation, mediation, diplomacy, justice etc., whereas, when ruling Taurus, it is all about money, security, stabilty, values, etc.,

Have you got any planets or angles in your natal chart in LIBRA?  Check where this Full Moon is located so you can see which area of your life is being activated.

When the Moon is Full, it is in total opposition to the Sun.  Chiron is conjunct(beside) the Sun in Aries at this time.  Chiron is the asteroid that shows us where we are wounded, and is called the ‘wounded healer.’  This Full Moon may bring up old wounds to be looked at, felt, and healed.  Take the opportunity to go within and do some ‘inner child’ work to heal old wounds that may be surfacing at this time.  There are some lovely ‘inner child’ healing videos on youtube, that may help at this time, if that is what you need.

It is always a good idea to dedicate some time to connect with your inner self during the new and full moons, to bring anything to the surface that needs to be healed and let go.

FULL MOON BLESSINGS,

RUTH.

SUN ENTERS ARIES

The Sun Moves into the Cardinal Fire sign of ARIES on March 20th 2019.  This is also the SPRING EQUINOX, as the Sun is at zero degrees of Aries.  New beginnings.  This is the Astrological NEW YEAR, as Aries is the first sign of the zodiac.

A great time to begin new projects.   With Spring in the air, everybody begins to feel more alive after the long winter months.  Flowers are adding colour to the garden and trees are beginning to grow their leaves.  It is a time of growth and development.

If we relate the season of Spring to our lives, it is a time for us to spring into action, and plant new seeds, having been less energetic throughout the Winter months.

There is a Full Moon in Libra on March 21st, just after the Equinox, more on that in another post.

Happy Spring Equinox,

Ruth.

 

SPRING EQUINOX

springequinox

The exact time of the ‘SPRING EQUINOX’ this year, is March 20th 2019 at 9.59 pm., just before the Full Moon in Libra on March 21st.

This marks the time when day and night are equal.  The official beginning of ‘SPRING.’  Spring is definitely in the air by now, with daffodils everywhere.  This is the time when the SUN begins its journey around the zodiac, so in astrology terms, it is the beginning of the Astrological New Year.  Aries being the first sign of the zodiac, representing New Beginnings.

This is seen as a very beneficial time to set new goals and intentions, as opposed to the New Year, on January 1st, when we are still in the middle of Winter!  Our energies are influenced by the Spring time.  We feel more motivated to begin new things, and our energies are increasing as the days will begin to lengthen towards the Summer Solstice.

If you are one of those people that tend to set new year resolutions, and then feel disillusioned because you haven’t managed to maintain your intentions, then now is the time to set new goals.  You will have a much better chance of sticking with them, because Spring is in the air, and you will feel more active and motivated.  It is common sense really.

Attuning ourselves to the seasons helps us make a deeper connection with Mother Earth and our own natural rhythms.  If you are living in the Southern Hemisphere, then you will be experiencing the Autumn Equinox.

For those of us living in the Northern Hemisphere, is it Time to Spring into Action!

Blessings,

Ruth.

NEW MOON IN PISCES

newmoonpisces1

 

The March NEW MOON is in the mutable Water sign of PISCES, on March 6th 2019 at 4.04 pm GMT, at 15 degrees.

Pisces is ruled by the planet NEPTUNE, which is travelling through Pisces now, and is conjunct(beside) this New Moon.  This accentuates the Pisces energy and empowers the expression of this sign.  An excellent time for dream work, meditation, art, music, anything creative.  Just imagine the Sun in Pisces with the Moon and also Neptune.  The interplay of these planets, all in the Water element.  A time to flow with the energy, as opposed to taking direct action.  A really nice time to create something beautiful through art or some other form.

Mercury has just gone Retrograde also at 29 degrees of Pisces, and this gives the opportunity to re-do, re-assess, or re-create something that you may be working on at this time, especially with the strong emphasis on Pisces energy.

With the Pisces energy being unusually strong during the month of March, be mindful of making any serious decisions, with Mercury travelling backwards, in retrograde motion and hitting back on the Sun and Neptune in Pisces, there may be a feeling of being in a fog for some people!   Waiting until Mercury goes direct on March 28th would be advisable if anything serious needs to be addressed.

The month of March is an excellent time for creativity, going with the flow, meditation, artistic work, etc., as the Water element of Pisces is very strong.  Use this time to be creative.

The Planet URANUS is also entering TAURUS today, 6th March, and will remain there until April 2026.  There is a separate post about this.

The NEW MOON is the time to set intentions and goals for the coming month.  Look at your chart and see which house Pisces occupies.  This will be the area of your life that you can focus your energy on at this New Moon.

New Moon Blessings,

Ruth.

 

 

URANUS ENTERS TAURUS

UranusTaurus1

The planet URANUS entered Taurus briefly last year from Mid May to early November, and it then retrograded back into Aries for a few months.  Uranus spends around 7 years in each sign, taking 84 years to travel around the birth chart.

Uranus is entering Taurus to stay for the next 7 years on the same day as the New Moon in Pisces, being the 6th of March 2019.

There has been a lot of talk about this, because Taurus would be the sign most associated with Mother Earth.   URANUS is the planet of change and innovation.  Taurus is a fixed Earth sign, associated with money, values, security, stability, food etc., and so when Uranus and Taurus come together, unusual things can happen in relation to any of these areas.

I think that this could be a very interesting time, with Uranus bringing insights and illumination and innovation to how we earn and spend money, and live our lives in general.  Globally, this could bring huge changes and alternative methods of exchange in relation to how we buy and sell products, and live our lives in general.

This transit will apply more specifically to people born with the Sun, Moon, or Rising sign in Taurus, or any other personal planet placed there, as well as angles in Taurus, as Uranus will make connections at some point over the next 7 years.

Even if you have no planets or angles in Taurus, Uranus will still be travelling through the house that Taurus occupies in your natal birth chart, and will therefore have an impact.

Taurus energy is stable and consistent, and doesn’t really like change very much.  Uranus on the other hand, is a planet associated with change, I would call it ‘the change agent.’  It likes to shake things up.  Think of the ‘Tower’ card in the Tarot, although not ruled by Uranus, it creates a visual impression of how Uranus works, lightening strikes and things are never the same.  Whatever is no longer working will be discarded to make way for the new.

Depending on how Uranus impacts your natal birth chart, one thing that will definitely happen is that you will have a desire to break free, and will need more freedom in your life.  If you are in a situation where you don’t have a lot of freedom, you may become very frustrated, and you will need to find ways to create more opportunities where you have more time to do your own thing.

Uranus is very much a planet associated with Individuality and Uniqueness, so this could be an excellent time for developing a unique product.

Be open to changes over the coming 7 years, especially if Uranus is making connections in your natal chart.

To find out if Uranus will be impacting your life in any way, please contact me for an Astrological consultation.

Blessings,

Ruth.

 

MERCURY RETROGRADE DATES

 

MERCURY will be going Retrograde on March 5th 2019 at 29 degrees of Pisces, and will go Direct again on March 28th 2019 at 16 degrees of Pisces.

As I always say, it is good to be mindful of the MERCURY Retrograde periods, and avoid buying anything electrical, or signing important documents etc.,  Also, allow extra time when travelling, as there may be delays.

There is an opportunity at the Mercury retrograde period to re-do, re-think, and re-organize.  You may find yourself coming up with solutions to problems around this time, which can be a positive aspect.

I feel that there is too much doom and gloom associated with this time on social media platforms etc., and once you are aware of the dates, then all you need to do is to keep it in mind, before taking action on important things that may be going on in your life.

Mercury rules communications, so be aware of how you are communicating, and try to avoid any misunderstandings, and be clear with your words.

Until next time,

Blessings,

Ruth.

FULL MOON IN VIRGO

 

FULLMOONEarth

The next FULL MOON is on February 19th at 3.53 pm GMT at 00 degrees of the Mutable Earth sign of VIRGO.

At the time of the FULL MOON, the Sun is always in the opposite sign, being 00 degrees of Pisces, this month. This Full Moon occurs just after the Sun moves into Pisces.  The ruler of Virgo is the planet MERCURY, and Mercury and Neptune(which rules Pisces) are together(conjunct) in Pisces, at the time of this FULL MOON. Although the Moon is in Earthy Virgo, there is a lot of Piscean energy around, with the SUN, MERCURY and NEPTUNE all in Pisces.  An excellent time for meditative work, art, creativity.

Along with the FULL MOON being in the earth sign of Virgo, there are 3 other planets, being Venus, Saturn and Pluto, all in Capricorn, along with the South node of the moon.  This adds a big dose of the earth element to this Full Moon energy.

The FULL MOON is making a lovely easy aspect, being a Trine, to the planet MARS, which is in the Earth sign of TAURUS now.  An excellent time to be productive, and also creative, with all the lovely Pisces energy in the mix too.  If you have a lot of practical earthy tasks to complete, you may feel motivated to forge ahead now.

Take some time over the FULL MOON period to release and let go of any build up of old emotions and feelings that may have reached a peak.  Holding on to negative feelings and emotions and old hurts and pain is detrimental to your health.  Soaking in a lovely bath and visualizing all your troubles going down the plug hole is another ritual that is very beneficial.  With Virgo being the energy of this moon, you may like to engage in an earth type activity, digging the garden, planting some new flowers etc., organizing and tidying, or any Virgo type activities that appeal to you.

Some information below about the sign of Virgo.
