00:00:23 [Amanda Pua Walsh] Well, hello everybody. And welcome to your weekly astrological weather. This is your place to get practical guidance for not only surviving the cosmic tides, but thriving with the cosmic tides. My name's Amanda Poole Walsh. I'm the founder of Astrology Hub, and I am so thrilled to be here with astrologer, stormy, grace and stormy was actually my co-host or our astrologer for the weekly weather before Anne.

00:00:51 So it's great. We'll have you back store me and I'm, I love the way that you read the Astrology and I'm just happy to have this opportunity to reconnect on the weekly weather.

00:01:02 [Stormie Grace] Absolutely. And isn't it funny, like here we are in our reconnection during Venus retrograde mercury retrograde we're back on tap.

00:01:10 [Amanda] Yeah, Exactly, exactly. So I just wanted to let you know,

00:01:14 for those of you who have missed the last few shows and are tuning back in, we, if you want to listen to the final episode that we did with an orderly it's episode, number 404, and we explain the why and what Anne's going to be doing next and what we're doing next with this show. And so as Astrology Hub, we're focused more on bringing in lots of different perspectives.

00:01:38 So you're going to be hearing from different astrologers. And what we're planning on doing is really honing it down to some core anchors or some core co-facilitators for this show, probably somewhere between three and six astrologers that we feature regularly. So please do give us your feedback when we have the astrologers on, is this someone you would like to see regularly? We will send out a survey.

00:02:03 So don't feel like you have to do that. We'll send out a survey at the end of the winter to see who we'll have back more regularly, but we're always going to be introducing new voices on this show as well. So I am excited to be doing this with all of you and again, stormy welcome back. And we're so grateful to have you.

00:02:23 [Stormie] Yeah. Thank you for having me and what a fun week to get to talk about. It's a busy blistery energetic kind of week, so

00:02:30 [Amanda] Good. All right. So let's, let's talk about the high level Astrology for this week. What are we looking at? What, what should we be paying attention to?

00:02:38 [Stormie] So one of the first things I think we want to be paying attention to is that this is a shifting week.

00:02:44 So energies are moving direction. Planets are on the go. So when we have weeks that are like that personally, you just want to know in your physical body and in the space, even mundane of the world around you, it is moving there's a lot going on. So you want to be aware of that with Mars, moving into the energy of Capricorn though,

00:03:04 this is great. Things are going to start to get more productive. People will be more productive, right? So there is this kind of theory, move forward energy. And then as we're getting ready to close out the week, we're actually going to see Venus come out of retrograde. And because that is a personal planet, again, I tell you pay attention to the energies around you because when there's a personal planet,

00:03:27 that stations, we really feel that, right. So there's a, there's a, like a hit to the, even the physical body. So you just want to make sure that this week as you're going about doing what you're doing, you know, that it's busy, pause, reflect, do your due diligence all week long, you know, double check some things because mercury is still retrograde and know that it is absolutely survivable.

00:03:51 Okay. Like that is the number one thing we're going to survive and thrive this week. It is just busy.

00:03:58 [Amanda] Okay. Question for you on that. So you said that Venus is going to be stationing to Go direct,

00:04:05 [Stormie] To go direct.

00:04:07 [Amanda] What is that going to bring up for us? Is that like closure on some of the Venusian kind of relationship issues that we've been working with or is that clarity that we're going to get on how to move forward? Like, how's that going to?

00:04:23 [Stormie] Yeah, I think the number one thing that the coming direct at this particular time is going to leave us with is the understanding that there were some karmic and dharmic things that came back to our table for absolutely. Sure. And at this particular point at the direct stationing, I don't think there were unclear as to what it was that came back and the implications that it's had for us personally,

00:04:50 you know, is it that this thing needed to come back into my life because we needed to reunite myself and this person or this project, we are in the right alignment now, so we can move it forward or is it, gosh, I want it to be this. And it turns out what was left on my table is that this is not ready or I'm not ready for it.

00:05:11 Right. And, and quite the other way in the Dharma, oh man, this is back and it turns out I am ready to go. Even if I'm afraid, it is time for me to step in. So as we have this stationing, I think we're actually left with a lot of clarity in what came back to the table. And I want to remind people too,

00:05:30 that the fullness of the Venus retrograde cycle doesn't actually end until March 2nd. So while Venus does come direct, yes, we get this day of, okay, I'll get some, get some energetic release to move forward with things. The real finale of it will be in March. And that's good news for all of us, because then we also see mercury out of the fullness of its retrograde cycle and Venus.

00:05:55 So what that means is we have full forward motion as we come into March timeframe. So just keep that in mind, if everything doesn't feel wrapped and tidy as we get to Saturday, it might not just yet.

00:06:06 [Amanda] Okay. Okay. And in the beginning you talked about this being a shifting week that we're going to be moving forward. It's going to be more productive.

00:06:15 You were talking about Mars, but Mars is moving into what I missed that part.

00:06:20 [Stormie] Capricorn.

00:06:22 [Amanda] Okay. Mars is moving into Capricorn. Okay. So people that have been like feeling, I mean, I don't know about you, but I, I left for California to visit my family on December 23rd. And I'm still living out of the suitcase. I packed on December 22nd and I still haven't been able to go home because my roof is torn up.

00:06:43 They, they were, it was supposed to be done January 3rd, but it's still not done. So I've been in this like really interesting, kind of like limbo state of, of, of transition that feels like it's just like, okay, when are, when are we going to land? Like when can that feeling of like the new year beginning actually happen?

00:07:03 And are you saying that that's, we're going to start to feel like we're settling at this time?

00:07:09 [Stormie] I don't know that we feel necessarily the settle this week. What I think is that we feel an energy of being productive, like the odds that have been placed in front of us, we have a sense of energy to be productive and kind of conquer them or to climb that mountain with a little bit more diligence than we had before.

00:07:29 Maybe even some of the frustration dies down a little bit this week because it's like, okay, listen, this is not whipping forward. This is not moving at my time. This is that supplies are not ready, whatever it is. I feel like the Mars moving into Capricorn because Mars is exalted here, which means it's like, yes, I like this.

00:07:49 You know? So it's a very yes kind of energy. It gives us that sense of I can climb this mountain. Okay. Steady determination. I have a fire about me that is going to get this done and we'll achieve it. But I don't know that it's the settle. I really don't know that, you know, that landing until we come closer to the March timeframe,

00:08:12 which doesn't mean if you're listening, it has to be what it is now. Right. There is always some forward progress. So I want you to don't hear what I'm not saying. Okay. Cause we can just make ourselves crazy. Like we can, you know, but on a large scale, I think that there is a sense of productivity that gives some hope.

00:08:34 [Amanda] Yeah. Okay, great. Stormy. And then you brought up that there were karmic and dharmic things that came up. We hear the word karma a lot. I'm not sure that everybody knows what Dharma is and or what you mean by Dharma. So can you talk about that?

00:08:48 [Stormie] Yeah, absolutely. So in the karma, we, we, sometimes we feel that when we're,

00:08:53 you know, we're good at finding the things that are hard. So I know it, you know, so we feel that where it's like, yeah, there's a consequence or there is an untying that needs to happen. But in our Dharma, like these are the things like you've done it. Right. You've done it. Well, now that level of success that is tied to your destiny has walked back to your table as well.

00:09:17 You know? And so that's where I say, for some people in this retrograde time we've been experiencing and in the Capricorn areas of your chart, where are you finding your mastery? Where you're like, oh, wait a minute. I actually like maybe accidentally matured. Right? No, you're different. And you're able to step into some area of your life in a different expertise.

00:09:39 For some people. I will tell you this season, what it looks like that expertise in the Dharma arena is no, I don't think I'd like to participate with that. And that word no is a reflection that you have changed, you know? And we just really, I want to, I want to own that a little bit for people who are having that experience because it,

00:10:01 it, it is that step up like, yes. Okay. The good things are back now. Let's step forward with them.

00:10:07 [Amanda] I love that. And stormy is our inner circle astrologer this month. And one of the things that you've talked about a lot is this idea of mastery and this opportunity to step into mastery is such a Capricorn word. Right?

00:10:22 And I think even sometimes we, it's hard to even make that a goal. It's a hard to even make that something that we're striving for is it's feels so like bigger at the very top of the mountain, like mastery. Could I even call myself that? But what I'm hearing is that we are in a period of time where recognizing where we have new levels of mastery doesn't mean like,

00:10:44 right, you're done. You're never going to have to work on that again. But new levels of mastery in our life in different areas. And what you're saying is that we may be finding that in the Capricorn area of our chart. So whichever house that Capricorn rules in your chart is where that may be showing up at or where you could pay more attention to things that want that level of attention for you.

00:11:09 [Stormie] Yeah, because we came into 2022, which again, I remind everybody 2022 is not a straight forward year. The energy all year long is a little bit forward, a little bit back all year. So it's this forward backward dance. So even mentally wrapping your head around the fact that things are not going to move forward at the speed that you would desire,

00:11:29 like that helps have some mastery in and of itself, right? Like, cause you, you own that. But also because we came in with such a high Capricorn signature, as we traveled these first couple of months, we're going to continue in a high Capricorn signature. And then we're going to end the year in more Capricorn signature. That is almost the same as what we have started with to learn and have that mastery to author your own story in that Capricorn area is phenomenal growth this year,

00:12:01 right? So we're going to have all of these things happening in Taurus and Scorpio. And there's other transits it's that you can be listening to, but I encourage a high amount of focus on where you are growing in that Capricorn area. The other thing I want to say about it is that Capricorn being ruled by Saturn Mars gives us the desire to do things,

00:12:21 have things right. That's great. But it's Saturn. That gets us to get it done. Saturn says, this is what it is right now, but let's get to the other side. So you take Mars and put it in Capricorn in that Saturny and energy, it is desire and determination needs a willingness to get it done. That's the other reason I think this,

00:12:43 this week begins being so productive, right? Because Capricorn says it is what it is. I have to grab this by the horns. I have to be the big kid here. I cannot be waiting, which we learned at the cancer full moon. I can't be waiting for someone else to be making all the decisions I have to master what's going on in my life space sphere,

00:13:06 whatever house that's happening for you.

00:13:09 [Amanda] Wow. And how long is Marlin Capricorn?

00:13:12 [Stormie] We're going to see Mars in Capricorn until March 6th

00:13:16 [Amanda] Until March 6th. Okay. So we have this window of time where we're going to have this doubling up of energy around yeah. Forward movement, getting things done. And then like you said, in the Capricorn house, in our chart.

00:13:31 All right. Amazing. Okay. What else do we have this week that we should be paying attention to?

00:13:36 [Stormie] Yeah. So next thing we want to pay attention to that I think is important. That brings us back to Capricorn is that we come in on Monday and we have that Mars move into the Capricorn energy. We'll see it until March 6th. That's great.

00:13:48 But then when we get to Tuesday mercury, who is retrograding right now is going to come back into the energy of Capricorn. So again, we're stamped in this Capricorn signature, right? So now we have got all of these planets over in Capricorn, and then we bring our thinking planet back into Capricorn. So this is also an indicator for us as we travel that we have been here before.

00:14:15 We're really not considering new things, right. We're thinking, having conversation, making decisions, using our strategy and our productivity on things we have already been seeing. So you're a poor roof. You're not done talking about the roof. Right, right. But this is what I think will help calm some of us as well, so that you're not out there chasing different transits,

00:14:40 looking for what's moving forward when the energy is still pulling back. So I would ask you to go back, you know, what was happening for you at the beginning of the year, as we came in, in your Capricorn signatures, what was going on, you know, at 29 degrees of Capricorn for you, mercury began its retrograde. It started to slow down at 24 degrees of Capricorn.

00:15:05 So between 24 degrees and 29 degrees of Capricorn, what's come up in your world. What came to your attention as Mercury's back in Capricorn on Tuesday, that is exactly the golden nugget you can go back to and pinpoint what you're working on, what you're looking at this week. Right. So just understand though, it's coming back to make some decisions on things that were already presented.

00:15:26 [Amanda] You know, it's funny, I've been so Capricorn is my Twelfth House. Right. So it's like my, my spiritual and my Sun and my Venus and my they're all there. So I've been trying to think of what's the metaphysical or spiritual symbol of a roof. Like what does a roof do? It's like a protection, right? It, it like,

00:15:47 it protects us from the elements or, you know, from the world outside. And I'm like, okay, so what does it mean spiritually to have my roof like blown up, you know, just torn up and also to not be able to go home. Like, what does that mean to, so it's, it's fascinating. So everybody can do that in their life,

00:16:06 in the different areas where this is showing up for you and get to that essence of what it's trying to show you or tell you. Right. And we're having opportunity to revisit it.

00:16:15 [Stormie] Yeah, absolutely. And then, you know, I have to tell you, it's funny because the other side of me just is very Capricornian it's very earth sign, which I'm like,

00:16:24 just get practical. Like, do you just need to fix that? Right?

00:16:28 [Amanda] No. I promise I'm doing, doing what I can from the practical perspective. But then my Twelfth House is like, what? There's gotta be some meanings.

00:16:38 [Stormie] Right. And Capricorn, that's what I do love for all of us, wherever this is at. And your chart.

00:16:44 Sometimes our signs, especially our earth signs, just drop back down to earth. They're like, nah, just boots on the ground broken roof. That's okay. Yeah. Don't think too hard about it. Right. So, you know, there's a space for the spiritual and for the practical is all, I think I'm saying here, but sometimes just good old fashioned practicality.

00:17:07 [Amanda] Totally. I hear you for sure. Okay. So we have, we have that happening on Tuesday. What, what else are we looking at this week?

00:17:15 [Stormie] Okay. So as we get a little bit more down the road, we'll have Moon interactions that happen all week long too. And those will bring harmonies and triggers as they do. The moon moves very quickly.

00:17:26 So as you're traveling, you know, the 26th, 27th in there in a lot of the moon energies that will present themselves, just again, remember be diligent, be rethinking, move nice and slow. Neptune is still alive. And while there's going to be some confusion, so just move nice and slow as you're at the mid point of the week.

00:17:45 But when we see another jump of major transit energy is going to be on Friday where we're going to have mercury back in Capricorn, still retrograde now coming into a conjunction with Pluto. Okay. But again, like I just feel like the word this week friends is Capricorn. Okay. So you just, just Capricorn all week long, but as mercury and Pluto get back together,

00:18:10 there's a lot of introspection that is going on. There's a lot of reflecting. Mercury is not moving quickly and it's vibrating next to a Pluto. That's almost done with its work in this particular sign. So as mercury and Pluto get together, first thing I will tell you is if you did, and you have found out over these last couple of weeks that you need help with something.

00:18:32 I need counseling. I need workers. I need an astrology reading. I need to do more research on something. This is a phenomenal transit to be working with under that energy dig. You can dig with this, right. But you're digging over something that you've already seen. Cause there's just a lot of soul and information searching that goes into mercury Pluto being together on Friday.

00:18:57 So you can, you know, take that in mind. And I think really what I want to say about that is I just encourage you. I encourage your growth at this point on Friday. Like I encourage you to do what you need to do and bring in the resources you need to, to allow that growth to be there or the change.

00:19:13 [Amanda] Would you also say, I mean, one of the things that you said that, that jumped out for me is this asking for help, you know, like recognizing where you may need additional resources, additional people that have different experiences who may be able to help you through whatever it is that's coming up. I think sometimes it's very hard for us to ask for that help, but it sounds like that's something that would be wise to do just to recognize,

00:19:41 Hey, I need help and who can help me. And sometimes just asking that question, who could help me here, you'll start to have ideas of, of people that may be great resources.

00:19:51 [Stormie] Yeah. I just agree with that so much. And you know, through some of the forecast things that we've had and just the lunations that we've had this month,

00:20:00 you know, we had the new moon in Capricorn, which did ask us to start going back through the resources in the areas of our lives and doing a little inventory. What do I actually have here? Do I have what I need to achieve? And then as we came to that full moon in cancer, which we're still under those rays and just like a couple of weeks away from the next new moon,

00:20:19 it really was this place of where can I garner the support that I need to be successful in these areas that I found out. And so as we're down and we're under this mercury Pluto, I do think we're left a little vulnerable, more left, a little bit more honest. Pluto is a humbling planet, you know, and I know it gets a bad rap,

00:20:38 but I don't think that it needs to Pluto is just about what's at the root of this so that it can be the best, you know, that's it. So truly what do you need to grow and what resources did you even see or did you welcome as an adjustment at that full moon in cancer a couple of weeks ago, because now you may be starting to see it and you're being shown a little bit who those helpers could be.

00:21:02 [Amanda] I love what you just said about Pluto, helping us see what's at the root of this. So it can be the best. And I think so many times we, we run around and we're, we, we put band-aids on, on, on situations. You know, we kind of see that we see the external manifestation of something. And we try to fix that instead of going to the,

00:21:27 like, what is the root cause of this and how can I, how can I shift it or change it at the source of it? And so this, I mean, I love thinking of Pluto that way is Pluto giving us the, the impetus or the energy around doing that deeper exploration and helping us get to the bottom of it. And like,

00:21:46 I love what you say. So it can be the best It be.

00:21:49 [Stormie] Yeah. And it's neat because on the, you know, the same time that day, just before we see mercury and Pluto comes together, we actually see the transiting sun in a sextile to Chiron. And Chiron has done a lot of work. Like we've been looking at these identities for a while and the wounds of the identity,

00:22:08 the story I tell myself about who and what I am versus what I really am. And that was the sun and Chiron have this gorgeous sextile before we're getting a little bit deeper and doing that soul searching we're offered an opportunity for healing, right? It's a really healing aspect in a sextile presents the opportunity, but then we are intelligently taking action on it.

00:22:32 So I have no doubt that by the time we're rolling around Friday, you are moving in some way where you have acknowledged a pattern, an idea, a story, maybe even something in terms of a mantra or a prayer, or somebody said something to you, and it has connected you with the impetus of your healing and then mercury Pluto roll in. And it's like,

00:22:56 yeah, okay. I can get more grounded if I go here, if I get the help here. Right? So there's like a little gentle helper earlier in the day before we intensify and you're right. Pluto will make us vulnerable enough. Cause it's uncomfortable that it's like, I can't, my insights can't stay in this condition.

00:23:16 [Amanda] You know, what's the coolest thing Stormie is I find that when I allow myself to be vulnerable and to say,

00:23:23 I need help. I don't know how to do this, or I can't do this by myself. It it's so incredible because other people get an opportunity to come forward with their gifts. They're like, well, I know how to do that. Or I could help you with that. And so how good does it feel when you get to actually serve someone with the thing that it easy for you,

00:23:46 but it's hard for them for some reason, or, you know, you have a perspective or something that they needed to really get through a moment. So in so many ways, it's actually a gift for us to say, Hey, I don't know how to do this. I need some help. Could you help me? Like what an honor for the person to be like,

00:24:07 oh wow, like you see me as someone that could help you. Awesome. Like I would love to. And so many times we like starve each other of those opportunities because we're too proud or were too afraid or we're, you know, we're afraid of rejection. You know, what, if no one wants to help me? What if no one can help me?

00:24:23 It's all these things that are just like muddled up. But I love this almost like a challenge for all of us to be like, okay, this week, where do I feel like I could need help? And can I muster the courage to say, Hey, I need some help. And, and then to see what that does, you know,

00:24:38 what does that open up for someone else who now has an opportunity to help you with their strength?

00:24:44 [Stormie] Absolutely. Well, and with all of the Neptune, there's just been so much confusion on the table. And I think that it has brought also though with Pluto in this Capricorn energy, it's part of so many trust issues, you know, from, from governments to nations,

00:25:00 to just my fellow men. And so when we have these opportunities to do this kind of healing, we remind each other that like, there is good and there is trust. And there is, you know, like appeals, some of those even I think inner child trust issues that rise to the surface. And certainly we've seen some ideas come up over this retrograde period,

00:25:22 [Amanda] So good. Okay. What else do we have this week?

00:25:25 [Stormie] Then we get to the weekend and we see Venus coming out of retrograde. So yay. Very excited to be having this. You know what I mean? When Venus and Mars retrograde and Mars will retrograde at the end of the year. So that's why we've got a lot of feels on the table.

00:25:43 But as we see Venus coming out of retrograde again in the signature of Capricorn, so we're still kept recording. But what I think we have the opportunity to do is to be able to ground a little bit, you know, we get this particular personal planet coming back online and it's like, okay, I can, I can ground the meaning. And the purpose of that retrograde was a ton of re-evaluation of values of re looking at our relationships,

00:26:18 our finances, our structures, these kinds of things. So now that we can say I've seen it, the issue has Venus comes out of retrograde, take Saturday. If you can, to take a deep breath, rest, let that energy station and change direction. And because Venus is the planet of harmony, beauty, art, creativity moving forward, what are the beautiful and creative solutions that have come to you?

00:26:49 Where do you recognize the beauty of realignment in these areas of your life by some level of surrender? You know? So I think that you can start to plan to have more clarity. Certainly if you need to make big, bigger purchases, like finally slide the card time after the 29th, it is a way better. You know, for many people,

00:27:15 many people, there were some really challenging relationship re-evaluations going on after the 29th. Again, you have a bit more clarity to make important relationship decisions, as well as those financial ones. Now I do want to just, I know I keep saying it, but I want to remind you that even though Venus is coming out of retrograde, she's not moving forward just yet.

00:27:43 This is a hovering position of Venus at this time. So just Saturday, if you can just hold, just hold information will likely come your way. Situations will come your way. But if you can just hold and know that if it's intensified it's because we're still at a standstill with a planet changing directions. Okay. I think honestly, a better time to make any kind of new relationship decisions will be at the new moon that rolls in,

00:28:13 in February.

00:28:14 [Amanda] Okay. So hold, let, Venus kind of continue to marinate in you all those energies of Venus. Yeah. Yeah. And then when we have our new moon is when we might be ready to actually make the decisions, make the further commitment or make the, the decision that it's time to part ways or whatever, the things that you're holding.

00:28:40 Yeah. And that'll be around what is the new moon?

00:28:43 [Stormie] So we're going to see the new moon happening February 1st, and that one's going to be at 12 degrees of Aquarius. And then just on the third, depending on where you live, mercury will come out of retrograde. So having mercury and Venus direct is a much better set up for powerful clarity to your decisions that you're making.

00:29:02 But I will say whatever decisions that you're making one way or another, I hope that you've used the retrograde time to honestly look at the resources and support. You need to support you on the other side of these decisions because that new moon, which you'll have a whole new guide to walk you through, but it's in Aquarius. So it's going to be about resources,

00:29:21 social things, support systems, things like that. So you want to make sure you're in a pretty good setup.

00:29:27 [Amanda] Okay. Yeah. With 2022, we have a lot of retrograde action, right? I mean, we have almost the whole year someone's retrograde or someone's and I'm sitting, I'm talking about planets, obviously adventure grade.

00:29:42 And so really just beginning to form a relationship with retrograde energy, with that opportunity to reevaluate reassess, go more internal, like look at things with a different perspective. And, and know that that, that period of time is built into the quote unquote cosmic curriculum in order for you to have the opportunity to course correct. And to really, and if we use it,

00:30:14 if we use it and we really mindfully consciously ask the questions, do the inquiries dig, then we will get answers that will help us course correct. And, and go in a very different direction than we might have if we never had that period of time,

00:30:29 [Stormie] Because the changes are so big, right? We're making really big changes. We're making really big purchases right now.

00:30:37 We're having really big re-evaluations about where we even think we fit in our communities, our countries, our organizations, that we're a part of, we need the slow. So I do agree that in high retro grade years, which is about every other year, we have to have time to learn, to be uncomfortable with being comfortable with being uncomfortable, right?

00:31:00 Because to try to speed it up, I assure you, we're going to hear from some of our friends and maybe some of ourselves, we tried to force a little something during Venus retrograde. And at the end of the year, we're going to be like curse word, right? Because we gotta be comfortable with the uncomfortable move, slow. Let the spirit unfold be uncomfortable between that spirit and that mind because they're not online together yet.

00:31:28 We got to grow into something because it's fine to live in the material world. We need to, we have to write we're meeting in the material world, but the realm of the spirit moves quieter and slower. And it is not in a rush to make the decisions that the mind is. And I think that's what we experienced in that level of innovation that we've got going for ourselves in high retro grade years.

00:31:49 [Amanda] Hmm. And Stormie, okay. What's our theme. And what's our intensity.

00:31:54 [Stormie] Okay. I have one more thing to tell you before. And then Sunday, we need to talk just quickly about this sun energy that is going to square up against Uranus, so that hard angle, first of all, exciting. I actually think that a sun you're on a square is quite exciting.

00:32:09 Cause it'll get us to move. It will actually get you to like move your butt and break free from something. Right. What is the project that's been going on if you're been saying, oh my God, I'm so bored. My question to you on Sunday that Sun and Uranus brings to your table, is, are you bored? Or are you being boring?

00:32:24 Right. Like we get, we get this like whack that it's just kind of like, okay, I'm ready to start coming up with new ideas. Here are these new opinions, get new options, have different perspectives. Right? All of these things kind of start to happen. So if you are feeling a on Sunday or you have felt like you've been in a rut and all of a sudden,

00:32:44 why is everything going that I think we can really attribute to that energy, but just be open to the new innovation, be open to new ideas that are coming your way and they might be really surprising. But again, you maybe don't have to make the biggest decision in the world that day. Just enjoy the newness.

00:33:04 [Amanda] Enjoy the newness. I love that. That's, that's a line that I say to my daughters too, when they say I'm bored. I say only boring people are bored. So go didn't like, do something like, like let the let and I also say, oh, congratulations. Because right when you're bored, it's usually right before something really cool is going to happen. If you allow yourself to just be bored,

00:33:28 instead of trying to distract yourself out of being bored, it's like, wow, I'm bored. I'm ready for something new. Like, okay. Right. And usually something new will come. Yeah.

00:33:36 [Stormie] Yeah, absolutely. I would tell people to just watch your electronics, like we are still in mercury retrograde. So if you haven't backed up the thing,

00:33:43 if you haven't, whatever Uranus-Sun is a powerfully electric energy. So do you watch your electronics and things like that that day. And certainly we are all trying to survive 5g right now. So watch your cell phone. Okay. Yeah. I have some really good tools for that, but that's for another show theme, same for the week.

00:34:03 [Stormie] The theme for the week is Capricorn.

00:34:06 [Amanda] Okay. That's Just the theme.

00:34:08 [Stormie] That's Capricorn, Capricorn, you know, get into it. What are the Capricorn at the, at the highest evolution of Capricorn? What are those qualities look like? And are you displaying them and developing them in your life when we're on the low end of Capricorn, what does it look like? Just use the Capricorn quality scale.

00:34:25 I think you can use that all week to kind of see what's developing and where you're at with some of these things. I would also say, be like a Capricorn. You don't need to make quick decisions,

00:34:37 [Amanda] Stormy. It could you, and this is I'm putting you on the spot, but could you fire off some of what you would consider the highest quality of Capricorn and then some of the less mature or less experienced qualities of Capricorn?

00:34:51 [Stormie] Absolutely. And it's height. We have mastery. This is my life. My doing, and there is an ownership of it, right? This side is my side of the street to keep clean. That is yours. That is high level Saturn mastery. I am achieving, yes. I have to buckle down and I have to not have the, have the sugar.

00:35:09 Right. So that I can have the water because what I really want is a hot, sexy body, right? These are the high level masters of Capricorn, getting it done, staying disciplined. I'm on track. When we see Capricorn in it's immaturity. I like that. I am very rigid. I'm playing the blame game. Maybe there's another way.

00:35:27 That's easier, softer. Right? We're looking for that. There's no fun. I'm not fun. I'm rigid in what I'm doing. So in that scale and that spectrum, we all fall, but in that area of your chart, look at where are you at in the development of those characteristics? Cause I'll tell you the higher level you get towards the Capricorn qualities,

00:35:48 the freer, that area of your chart fields.

00:35:50 [Amanda] Ooh, dang. That was so good. Okay. So we look for places where we're feeling rigid, where we're blaming, where we're not having fun or we're too serious. Would you also put control in there? Like where we're feeling like we need to control everyone and everything.

00:36:07 [Stormie] Yeah. We'll need to control or I think a better version of control and Capricorn is that I, I care a lot about what other people think. Hmm.

00:36:17 [Amanda] Caring what other people think. Okay. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. And then you, and then higher qualities would be mastery ownership or responsibility. Right. But with that responsibility comes the awareness that you actually then can create your circumstances in a way that you maybe weren't taking responsibility for before. Right.

00:36:38 And then discipline, but not the kind of discipline that's rigid. The kind of discipline that is with the understanding and awareness that you will get the things that you most value. If you have some discipline around those areas of your life and when you do that, then freedom is available to you. Okay. All right. And then what would you give us on the on the intensity scale And it's Capricorn?

00:37:09 [Stormie] So I feel like it's its own intensity scale just in and of itself. But I do think that this is a rather intense week. I think we're going to feel it quite a bit because there's so much Capricorn that's trying to ground us down and that is coming against still a lot of Neptunian energy that can feel really confusing. You know? So the what is,

00:37:29 what is what I think and what is, how I feel, which one of these are correct. So I think we will still battle with a little bit of that intensity this week. So I think it's a pretty high intensity week for sure.

00:37:41 [Amanda] Okay. On a scale of one to 10, one being not intense at all, 10 being like the most intense week could experience.

00:37:48 [Stormie] I think that we're going to have a six, seven kind of Okay.

00:37:53 [Amanda] All right. Six, seven. All right. Stormy, thank you so much. Is there anything else that you want to leave us with as we embark upon the journey of this week?

00:38:03 [Stormie] I just telling you guys enjoy it. Remember like 1 24 hour period at a time, which even that most human beings are only responsible for staying alive for 13 hours at a time.

00:38:14 It's very survivable and it's doable. And if you are exhausted from listening to breathing in, taking in, take some things off your plate, if you need to, that is creating a space of self-discipline and self responsibility for making sure your space is healthy. So just enjoy it, enjoy it the best you can.

00:38:34 [Amanda] Okay. I'm just going to give a few high level summary points that we can walk away with.

00:38:39 And that's perfect. Remember to enjoy the week. Something else you said is, is that it's survivable. Like whatever you're going through is survivable. That is a shifting week that this is an opportunity for us to look at that mountain and have this energy of like, I can climb that mountain. I can climb it that. You're saying that the frustration that we may have been experiencing over the last few weeks,

00:39:02 maybe dying down at this point, there were karmic. And dharmic things that came into our life from the end of 2021 in this whole few beginning of the year period, there were karmic and dharmic things that came in. So are you ready for these things? Are you not ready for these things? You're going to start to have some clarity around the dharmic pieces of it.

00:39:26 The karmic, maybe there'll be some unwinding or an unbinding of those karmic knots and some more freedom to flow in your life. You're going to have more clarity on the things that did come up, but the real finality around these issues is going to come early. March is what I heard from you. You're having this opportunity to look at your life.

00:39:47 And where are you finding mastery? Look at the Capricorn house for that also places where you're getting clear. No, I don't want to participate in that. I'm done with that. I'm no longer colluding with that, whatever that is. That could be something internal inside of you that you're like, ah, I'm so done with that. Self-talk I'm so done with that belief system I'm ready to move on or it could be external and love how you say this.

00:40:12 We are the author of our own story in Capricorn. So you are the author of your own story. So look at the Capricorn area of your life and really harness that. Okay. What came into your attention? Okay. At the end of the year, be diligent. You said recognize also that you may have some confusion because we still do have this Neptune energy.

00:40:37 So, so there's clarity, but there also may still be confusion, right? Don't worry because we don't need to do anything right. This second, like it's, the energy may be moving forward, but we don't actually have to like put the pedal to the metal and go

00:40:53 [Stormie] Just put your, Their head where your hands are, work on what you can touch. That's it.

00:40:58 [Amanda] Okay. I love that. Okay. We have mercury conjunct Pluto. So if this is the conversation we had around finding help, if you need help, find it, ask for it. We could be having some soul searching on Friday. This is where we're going to feel vulnerable. This is an opportunity to be honest, what's at the root of this so that it can be the best we're having Venus come out of retrograde.

00:41:19 This is a time for us to ground in. We've had this opportunity to recap, reevaluate our values, our relationships, our finances, our structures. And this is a time to just sort of breathe into those realizations. So Saturday, just read with it, be with it, maybe journal, if you're a journaler or talk to a friend, if you're a,

00:41:41 if that helps you to like really kind of anchor some of these things, of course, I just said to Gemini moon things. It's so like I said, journal and talk to her friend, whatever it is that you do, meditate, go into nature, whatever it is that you do to really anchor the things that came up for you in these last few weeks and take some time to celebrate those things,

00:42:02 to thank those things. Like thank you for this new awareness. This is helpful

00:42:07 [Stormie] Because it's not going to always be calm. So the new awareness is quite painful.

00:42:13 [Amanda] Yes. There you go. Okay. You're saying that relationship decisions, we can still hold on those financial decisions that we could have the clarity around them, but, but maybe still wait.

00:42:26 Right? And you're saying until the new moon, which is February 1st.

00:42:30 [Stormie] Yes. If you can. And like it life on life's terms, right. Something may present it and you gotta make a decision trust that.

00:42:39 [Amanda] Another line from you today. That's super helpful is learning how to be comfortable with being uncomfortable. And are you bored or being boring? And that we'll have this opportunity on Sunday for some newness,

00:42:52 like a new energy to come in and it might be surprising. It might be really energizing,

00:42:58 [Stormie] Pay attention, Pay attention, pay attention, and just watch your electronics.

00:43:03 [Amanda] Watch your electronics. There you go. All right, stormy. Thank you so much. This has been such a pleasure. I, it always feels like this grand reunion. Whenever I get to hang out with you in the inner circle this month,
