#126 September 5-11: The Full Moon in Pisces and Mercury Retrograde


Another Full Moon Cycle and another Mercury Retrograde Cycle are upon us. These cycles have Ingrid and Scott discussing these cycles of life in relation to the planets, particularly Saturn, the authority, and getting candid about some of the struggles and foolish choices they’ve made along the way. Mercury’s retrograde transit is creating the opportunity to slow down and reflect on how you are communicating, and have communicated in your relationships. The Full Moon in Pisces creates the space for you to release whatever you are beating yourself up over, so you can focus on the practicality of what matters and find your flow through life.

The themes this week are…

1. Compassion

2. Clarity

3. Structure

Mercury retrograde and the Full Moon in Pisces highlight the transits for the week.

The Full Moon in Pisces is calling you to release and blame or guilt, through compassion and empathy.

Mercury retrograde is calling you to create greater clarity in your life through initiating conversation to establish balance in your relationships.

The structure for the week comes through the Moon in Capricorn, connecting to the North Node and Uranus in Taurus, while the Sun connects to these same three points from Virgo.

These are the three Earth Signs.

While you are showing yourself compassion, and opening up lines of communication, you are creating an opportunity to restructure a life that supports you in these areas.

Meaning, the more compassion you are with yourself, the more open you will be to create clarity through communication.

The more you are open to create clarity through communication, the more you will be able to create a daily structure that allows for compassion and clarity through communication.

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!

FRIDAY, September 9

Mercury in Retrograde Libra

From August 3 - 25, Mercury was transiting through Virgo. This was a person of self- analyzation. Dissecting your daily routine, health, diet and job.

From August 25 – September 23, Mercury is transiting through Libra. This is your opportunity to initiate the conversation with those you are in a relationship with, whether it be lovers, friends, or business partners, for the purpose of balancing the Scales. Let them know what you value, what your expectations are, and what you are bringing to the table, then give them the chance to respond with their values, expectations, and gifts they are bringing, as well.

From September 23 – October 10, you begin the work of reorganizing your life to create the structure that supports your relationships. Eliminate any bad habits, or unhealthy frequencies that are bogging your relationships, or you down.

From October 10 – 29, Mercury returns to transit through Libra, creating a second opportunity for you to reflect on the work you have done, which was agreed upon in your relationships. Renegotiate any areas that need further work. On October 29, when Mercury moves into Scorpio, the bond will be sealed, so be sure to use your diplomatic nature, through grace and fairness to balance the Scales, before the Scorpion takes hold.

During the retrograde period, there will be time to reflect, rework, or revise your relationships and routine. Slow down. Take your time. Look at the dates below. These are your marker points to chart your progress.

What is on your plate at this point in time with regards to work, health, diet, daily routine, and relationships?

Where would you like to be in these areas by October 2, when the retrograde ends, and October 16 when Mercury moves out of its retrograde shadow?

Am I being efficient in life?

How can I be more organized?

Am I being graceful and diplomatic in my communication?

Am I creating space for improvement, by being willing to receive input from those I am in a relationship with?

Clear what is on your plate, and refrain from taking on new progress, or making decisions on new opportunities that have come in unexpectedly from out of the blue.
