#140 December 12-18: Embrace Honesty, Compassion, and Responsibility


The themes of the week are Honesty, Compassion, and Responsibility, which has inspired Ingrid to take a compassionately honest look at her relationships, and hold herself responsible for the partners she has been choosing.

Scott illuminates the meaning astrologically for Ingrid’s new epiphany, before delving into his new love for the show he once hated, The White Lotus, which also highlights the present relationship energy.

Mercury moves into its retrograde shadow this week, so make sure you are putting your plans into motion for what you want to accomplish during Q1 of 2023.

Plus we answered questions about what it means to have the North Node aligned with the Sun.

Check out the podcast through the link below...

The themes this week are…

1. Honesty

2. Compassion

3. Responsibility

Set yourself free during this last full week of the Sun in Sagittarius. Open yourself up and give yourself the freedom of expression you desire. Any last-minute preparations to the plans you intend to execute in the coming weeks and months should be made now.

Mercury enters its retrograde shadow this week, so take stock of where you are in all aspects of your life, especially with regards to your goals and aspirations.

What areas do you want to focus on between now and February 6 when Mercury exits its retrograde shadow? Hone in on these areas rather than venturing out into new endeavors.

Be extra patient with yourself and others if things begin to move slower than your desired pace in the coming weeks.

The Moon transits through Leo, Virgo, and Libra this week. The focus here is to open your heart, analyze what you see, and gracefully find the balance in all areas of your life, especially your relationships.

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!
