#124 August 22-28: The New Moon in Virgo and Mercury in Libra


Ingrid and Scott get deep about her latest meltdown regarding her work and domestic partnerships, while the Sun begins transit into Virgo helping create an analytical perspective on life. Venus continues transit through Leo encouraging you to open your heart, while Uranus and the North Node in Taurus challenge your self-worth. The New Moon in Virgo helps you break down what’s not working and rebuild your life, one detail at a time, to create a more efficient way to live which helps you support not only yourself, but those around you.

#124 August 22-28: The New Moon in Virgo and Mercury in Libra

The themes this week are…

1. Organization

2. Open-Heart

3. Grace

The Sun moves into Virgo, and the New Moon in Virgo highlight the week bringing attention to organization, so you can become more efficient in your life.

Once you have become more efficient you will have the ability to be of greater service to those around you.

Venus in Leo shows up in key alignments four days this week, urging you to open your heart, especially in your close, personal relationships.

In order to get organized, so you can be more efficient you need the support of those you are in partnership with.

If you are refraining from expressing what is in your heart with your lovers, friends, or business partners, they will not know how to help you.

It is your responsibility to make your needs known and to create the space for those you are in partnership with to make their needs known to you.

With Mercury beginning transit through Libra, you are being supported to communicate your needs gracefully.

Find the balance in your relationships. Both sides must be giving what is equal or fair to each other.

Following these frequencies will hopefully give you everything you need to bring greater efficiency in your structure to support you in your life.

If you are curious how these, or any other transits are affecting you directly, I encourage you to reach out to me for a reading.

Wishing you all the best through the week, as you ride the planetary waves!
