Rubys Readings



By Ruby

The week ahead for the holiday has some good energy, but also some challenges, but we have an opportunity to think about what we need so we can work towards our goals.

Thanksgiving day is interesting as the Moon will be in the sign of Aquarius the humanitarian of the Zodiac! Therefore, all of us no matter our Zodiac sign will feel good about meeting up with friends and family for the Holiday. It’s a great time to think about those folks that may not have a family to share dinner with and open your home and heart up to them under the Aquarius Moon.

Whenever you are around other people, you are exposing yourself to their subtle energies .
Most of the time, these energies are positive, and will therefore have a positive, or perhaps even beneficial, effect on your own subtle energies.
However, there are times when people energies, such as negative thoughts and emotions, can be toxic to your own.

Negative energies from the people around you can be harmful to your aura, which in turn can cause damage to any or all of your subtle “bodies” (i.e., emotional body, mental body, spiritual body) as well as your physical body, all of which are contained within the aura.

Fortunately, stones and crystals can be used to protect the aura from any harm that can come as a result of these negative energies.

Magick and Wonder


I know this might sound silly, but trust me, this is the most basic level and the most advanced form of magick that you can learn. It will be used from beginning to end – for every ritual and spell.
