Thank the Heavens, Ingrid has emerged from her black hole and is now basking in the light. It was a rough couple of weeks mentally for Ingrid, and by proxy, Scott, but in order to grow there are sometimes growing pains. This week we highlight Mars moving into its retrograde shadow and Venus moving into Virgo. Time to analyze and organize your relationships. Eliminate any relationship frequencies that are holding you back. There are only so many people you can really interact with on a regular basis in your life. Focus on the ones that serving you, and appreciating what you bring to the table.
The themes this week are…
Last week the Sun moved into Virgo. This week it is Venus. The theme here is efficiency, not only in life, but in your relationships.
The key to finding an efficient flow in relationship and in life is to communicate your values to those around you.
Mars moves into its Retrograde Shadow beginning a six-and-a-half-month period of potential confusion.
You may find yourself going one way, only to change your mind and go an opposite direction. Followed by returning to your original direction.
This is why it is important to be clear of what you value. Communicate those values to those around you, in order to hone in on the details necessary to keep your life coherent instead of chaotic.
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!

Mars Enters its Retrograde Shadow
Take note of where you are in life.
What are you driving towards?
What is motivating you in life?
What areas of life are you most curious about taking steps to explore?
The challenge of Mars in Gemini is focus.
Be open to the duality.
Try new things, while at the same time remaining clear on your objectives.
There is the possibility that by the end of this transit you may feel like you have failed to accomplish what you were truly working towards.
Give yourself plenty of time and space to travel, commute, experience all sides of a situation, and learn a little about a lot.
Prepare for setbacks. That doesn’t mean to expect them, but if they happen, be ready, just in case.
You are meant to experience the duality of life during this retrograde transit.
Better to find yourself at the top of the pendulum, instead of swinging dramatically from high to low, and from low to high, again and again.

Venus in Virgo
How are your relationships serving you?
How are you serving those you are in relationship with?
What relationships are worth the work they require?
Are you being critical of yourself with regards to those you are in relationship with?
Are you overly critical with your lovers, friends and business partners?
What areas of your relationships would you like to organize?
Analyze your relationships in order to find a greater efficiency with life.
Those who bring you into chaos may need to be eliminated from your daily diet.
Those who ease your body and Soul should be scheduled in more frequently.
Think back to the last time Venus was in Virgo for clues on what could be in store for you this time around.
For those born with key astrological points or planets in Gemini and Sagittarius, be mindful that you may experience challenges in your relationships. Do your best to show yourself and those you are in relationship with patience and compassion.
