#161 May 8 - 14: Mercury Direct in Taurus

Greetings,


Ingrid shares about her big family weekend, which brought about a lot of healing, and is right on topic for this week.


As Mercury ends its retrograde transit through Taurus, it makes a long alignment with Saturn in Pisces, bringing your conscious attention to how the status of your self-worth as influenced by your unconscious mind.


Venus’ transit through Cancer also aligns with Mercury, Saturn, and the North Node in Taurus, urging you to look at the origin of your relationships.


Use this Water and Earth energy to nurture yourself and build a solid foundation that supports you in feeling valued.

The Weekly Transit Astrology Podcast

The themes this week are…

1. Values

2. Origins

3. Compassion

Last week we experienced many astrological shifts, Pluto retrograde, Venus in Cancer, and the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio. These along with Mercury retrograde perhaps created a lot of friction through their movements.

This week, in the wake of the Lunar Eclipse we settle into the energy at hand. Mercury comes to a screeching halt as it concludes its retrograde transit in Taurus, aligning with Saturn in Pisces intensely for almost two weeks. This urges you to show yourself compassion while standing up for what you value.

We also highlight the other key symbols in Taurus along with Mercury, which are the Sun, Uranus, and the North Node. Venus in Cancer aligns with many of these points urging you to delve into the origins of your relationships.

Much more on all of these transits in the days ahead. 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!

In what ways has your material security been shaken since 2019?

If you are familiar with your astrological code, you can look at the degrees above to see where the Sun and Uranus conjunction has had its strongest effects on you?

If you are unsure, you can always contact me for a reading.

Either way, you are meant to be experiencing a revolution to your relationship to the material, financial security, or money.

The purpose of this revolution is for you to claim your financial independence.

In order to claim your financial independence you must first come to terms with your self-worth, and determine what you value. From there find harmony between doing something you value which is also in accordance with your self-worth. Once you do something you value, which honors your self-worth, you will have financial independence.
