Remember that your Angels are always available to assist you.

Just thinking of them will bring them closer.

Light a candle to make a connection.

Writing down your concerns on paper will help you to clarify what you need help with.

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”

“I thank my Angels for their help”

“I feel confident, knowing that my Angels are with me”

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.

 

SATURN GOES DIRECT

Saturn is currently in the earth sign of Capricorn at 13 degrees. It has been in retrograde motion since the beginning of June, and is going Direct on 18th September at 13 degrees. Saturn will move on then through Capricorn and move into Aquarius around 22nd March 2020.

Anybody with planets in mid to late Capricorn will be feeling the effects of this transit over the next few months. Saturn is the maturing planet. When it hits a planet or angle in your chart, it brings a reality check to that area of your life. As an example of this, imagine you have Venus, the planet of love in Capricorn, and Saturn hits on it, then an opportunity for a serious(Saturn) relationship may present itself. It can also suggest an ending to a long term relationship. Also, relationships in general may take on a more serious energy, and responsibilities may be associated with them.

When Saturn hits on your Sun or Mars, in particular, your energy levels may be affected, and you may have periods where you feel wiped out! Saturn energy is serious and sober, and so it is a good time to focus your energies on projects, when it is making significant aspects in your chart.

Where is Capricorn in your birth chart, have you any planets or angles here? Check it out to see if Saturn is making any significant impact to your chart at this time.

Blessings,

Ruth.

DATES FOR NEXT NEW AND FULL MOONS

The Moon phase begins on the NEW MOON, and on the picture above, moves in an anti-clockwise motion around to the FULL MOON, and then back to the next NEW MOON phase, to begin its next journey from new to full. There are 8 phases from new to full.

The next NEW MOON is on SEPTEMBER 28th 2019 at 7.26 pm at 5 degrees 20 of LIBRA.

The next FULL MOON is on OCTOBER 13th 2019 at 10.08 pm at 20 degrees 14 of ARIES.

You might find it helpful to mark these dates in your diary and also note what type of energy will be expected on the new and full moons. These next new and full moons are in the signs of LIBRA(Air) for New Moon and ARIES(Fire) for Full Moon.

I will post more information on each phase nearer to the time.

Moon Blessings,

Ruth.

MERCURY ENTERS LIBRA

MERCURY, the planet of communication, moves into LIBRA on September 14th 2019.

Libra is all about peace and love and harmony, balance and justice. With Mercury here, communicating peacefully and effectively is highlighted. People born with Mercury in Libra can be seen by some people as smooth talkers, good sales people and diplomats. They are very effective at arguing a point.

Where is Mercury, planet of communication in your birthchart? Is it in the Fire element, earth, air or water elements? The element your Mercury is in colours the way you express yourself. Libra is in the Air element, which gives a more logical, left brained thinking process, and also adds a more objective way of looking at things.

Blessings,

Ruth.

FULL MOON IN PISCES

The FULL MOON in September falls on September 14th at 5.33 am BST.

At the time of this Full Moon, the Sun will be close to Mars, Venus and Mercury, all in Virgo, while the Moon will be in Pisces and beside(conjunct) the ruler of Pisces, ‘Neptune.’

There will be a lot of Spiritual energy to tap into at the time of this Full Moon. The Moon and Neptune being together in the sign of Pisces, which is ruled by Neptune, gives it an extra powerful Pisces feel.

Artists and musicians and writers may feel particularly creative.

Spending time by the ocean would be an excellent way to tune into this beautiful sensitive Full Moon in Pisces energy. Failing that, have a nice long soak in the bath, and have your journal ready after to write down any ideas that have popped into your head. You may receive some inspiration to help you move forward with projects you are working on. With the group of planets together in Virgo, writing down any ideas etc., and then making a plan to put them into action will be a productive use of this beautiful energy.

FULL MOON BLESSINGS,

RUTH.

There is potential with this combination to bring creativity into your work, as there is a lot of Virgo energy around at this time, which will help to ground the Pisces energy.

Venus in VIRGO will make a lovely trine(easy aspect) to Saturn in CAPRICORN on September 25th at 13 degrees. This is very earthy energy, and would benefit relationships through work also. Generally a good time to get work done.

Throughout September, there is a lot of VIRGO and LIBRA energies in the air. The SUN, MERCURY, VENUS AND MARS all being in Virgo for the first half of the month. A great opportunity now to really focus your energy on getting organized and structured and clearing out etc.,

For the last week or so of the month, the SUN, MERCURY AND VENUS will be in lovely LIBRA, focusing energies more on relationships and being more social.

Wishing you all a lovely September.

Blessings,

Ruth.

NEW MOON IN VIRGO – AUGUST 30th 2019

This is the second NEW MOON in AUGUST. The first NEW MOON was on August 1st at 8 degrees of LEO.

This second NEW MOON is in VIRGO on AUGUST 30th at 11.37 am at 6 degrees of VIRGO.

At the time of this NEW MOON IN VIRGO, the SUN, MOON, MERCURY, VENUS AND MARS are all in VIRGO, this is called a stellium, a group of planets in one sign. All in VIRGO!!! Huge Virgo, earthy energy. Think of an earthy activity that you can pour your energy into, i.e., gardening, sacred ceremonies, holistic therapies, organizing and tidying etc., Take advantage of this time and utilize these energies to get a lot done. This is VIRGO on STEROIDS! Watch out for a sudden urge to clean and tidy! Virgo energy loves to be of service, so helping a friend out would be a good way to use this energy too.

Virgo is also the sign associated with health, so take the time now to do some self care, and maybe have a health check, if you need one.

Check your chart to see what area is being occupied by VIRGO. Whatever house this NEW MOON falls in is the area to focus your INTENTIONS and GOALS for the coming month of September. For instance, if you have VIRGO in your 4th house of home and roots, you might like to set intentions to re-decorate, have a clear out, or do something connected with your family and roots. You might like to do some Ancestral Healing also. Writing out your wishes adds potency to them becoming real. Find a nice journal and put pen to paper, it really does work.

NEW MOON BLESSINGS TO YOU ALL,

RUTH.

MERCURY ENTERS VIRGO

MERCURY enters the mutable Earth sign of VIRGO on August 29th 2019.

Mercury the planet of Communication in the Earth sign of Virgo expresses itself in a very practical, logical methodical way. Very organized energy and great for detail and analysis.

Mercury will remain in Virgo until Sept 14th 2019.

When Mercury moves into Virgo, the Sun, Venus and Mars will also be in the sign of Virgo, and will all remain there until mid September. An excellent time to focus all your energies on getting organized and if you have been putting off doing a clear out, this would be the time to do it!

Blessings,

Ruth.
