And then also would you would you pair different scents with different transits that people might be going through?

Yes, and based especially on like, what it’s transiting right. So if my moons in Virgo, and something’s going over that, or there’s some relationship happening with my moon, then there’s essences that I want to use for Virgo to like, help me step into that energy more. Okay,

So I don’t know your actual name. But that’s the name that I could see in iTunes. And it’s called always a gold nugget. And floor dot 13 says, every time I listen to a podcast on a hub, I receive a new nugget of wisdom, both astrologically. And in personal growth.

I’m so grateful for the wealth of authentic wisdom, you share each and every episode, I’m completely smitten. I love this word spin. It’s so cute. And I just have to say I have the the honor and privilege of meeting so many people from the astrology hub community, both inner circle members, non inner circle members, all kinds of people who have been tuning into this podcast, some some people for years, some people for weeks, at the ESR conference that we went to last week in right outside of Denver, it was such an amazing experience, to meet people in person. It was like oh my gosh, the joy of being together. And being able to hug each other, being able to really feel each other in person. It was amazing. And I’m so grateful for all of you out there who tune into this podcast and get anything in your life as a result. And just being able to again, meet people that have been touched by this, these podcast episodes, it was such a gift and I’m like overflowing with the love that that came out of it. And I just want to thank all of you who came up and said hello and introduce yourself. It was just such a gift to meet you. And I hope that I get to meet more of you. As time goes on. You know, as we have more astrology events, as there’s more opportunities. It was just amazing. And then to be there with our astrologers as well. To get to hug Rick Levine to get to hug and Oertli for the first time ever, I’ve never met her in person, and she’s even more of a love and person than she is. As you know on her podcast and all those things. So it was just amazing. Christopher Renstrom Cameron Allen you know all these incredible astrologers that we get to work with getting to meet them in person. So I if you have haven’t checked out our Instagram, we have some pictures from the event on Instagram. And it’s just it’s really fun just to see everybody. So check out the astrology hub Instagram, and you’ll get to kind of feel the energy that was shared. And hopefully there’s a lot lot more coming up in the future shared and I missed you there. I’m sorry that you were there. But um, hopefully we’ll get to meet Sunday in person as

well. Yes, definitely. Yeah.

So let’s start with the overarching theme for the week, what would you say is the big energy that we’re working with?

Okay, well, first, I just want to say thank you so much for having me on the podcast. I’m so excited to be here. And it’s so fun to get to spend time with you and all of the whole astrology hub. People, it’s been such a joy to start working with you. Um, so the main theme that I would say what I’m calling this week is retrograding. Back into ourselves. Yeah, we have mercury going retrograde in Libra. And I think that’s such an amazing opportunity for us to tune back into ourselves take that moment, that stillness to turn back inward.

And what’s like, what are we contemplating? I mean, what, as we’re turning back in, what is the theme of our inward

journey? Well, so Mercury is going retrograde in Libra and Libra, you know, traditionally is the sign everybody talks about is more of the about relationships. But the way I like to look at Libra is we are learning about ourselves through the mirror reflection of our relationships, right? I’m learning about myself through what you’re reflecting back to me. Right? So with mercury going retrograde, I like the idea of this is this opportunity for us to look at, well, who am I in what the reflection, I’m getting back, right? I feel like the ultimate lesson for Libra, or people that have a lot of Libra on their chart is to understand and know who they are, regardless of the reflection that they’re getting back. Right. So that the it helps them to step into it. Like, actually, that’s no, that’s not me. Yeah, that is me, right, no matter what is coming at them from the other there, they become more centered and more clear and who they are. And so I feel like mercury going retrograde in Libra gives us that opportunity to do that for all of us,

you know, one of the other gifts I feel in alignment with what you’re talking about in terms of the reflection of others, and allowing that reflection to solidify even more who we are like, Yes, I am that or No, I am not that. But it’s also such an incredible opportunity for us to see our blind spots. You know, other people often reflect the parts that we’re just unaware of. And I’ve had a recent experience of that, of, of having that reflection of like, wow, I’m really aware of others in these types of scenarios. And sometimes I’m less aware of others in this type of scenario. And so to have someone reflect that back, it can feel really painful to hear. But at the same time, it’s like gotta I’m glad I know that I’m glad that you’re pointing that out to me, so that I can I can no longer have that be a blind

spot. Yes, no, I love that right, just some deeper level of self awareness. You know, and, and Mercury Retrograde, I think is so much about, you know, it gets this bad rap and everybody’s like concern, and oh my gosh, my computer’s not going to work. But really, I think Mercury Mercury Retrograde is this beautiful opportunity to just take a break from that linear left brain always doing always going forward towards something and just stop and move into the right side of our brain and have more of that cyclical focus of things and step into our creativity and not have to, you know, like get off of that hamster wheel or at least like let it start to slow down and then maybe take some steps backwards, right? That just gives her body a break to go in a different direction. And so with it being in Libra, I think it’s such a beautiful opportunity for us to tune into that place exactly what you’re saying. Where’s me? Where’s them? How do I know myself? Where are my boundaries, their boundaries? Where am I mixing everything in together and then it’s going to retrograde all the way back into Virgo. So it’s an added opportunity for more of that sacred feminine that priestess type of energy, the sacredness to have me tuning into who I really am, you know,

just to stay on this a little bit longer. One of the things we were talking about that in the inner circle recently is how Virgo energy gives us this opportunity to infuse or be mindful of infusing the sacred into the everyday mundane. You know, so as we’re doing the dishes, like being mindful of, of gratitude, or, you know, whatever it is, as we’re going through our life, bringing that sacred energy into our everyday activities, and just thinking of Virgo that way, you know, instead of the, I feel again, Virgo is one of those signs I feel gets a really bad rap. I would say Capricorn also, but Virgo for sure. So I love this idea of the priestess, can you give us a little bit more of the Virgo energy as Mercury is also going back into Virgo?

Yes, definitely. I completely agree with you that Virgo gets this, you know, it’s like so detail oriented, or you’re going to come over and like organize my sock drawer, you know, like this type of stuff. But really, Virgo is detail oriented, because it is the priestess or the druid type of energy. And their job is to watch the sky and see where the sun is setting on which stars are coming alive. And what’s happening with the plants and the animals and the trees, right to see that. Oh, we’re moving towards the September equinox. And it’s time for us to think about harvesting in the northern hemisphere or planting our seeds in the southern hemisphere because we need to collect the food or we need the food to grow for us over the season to come. Right. So their job is this sacred place of knowing the timings and what’s going on. And they need to pay attention to all those details to help anchor all of us that are busy with like our kids and making dinner and getting food and going to work. And so they hold the ceremony and they say it’s time for the September equinox. Let’s build the bonfire and danced around and celebrate the harvest or the planting or whatever it is. And so it’s not that Virgo needs to be CPAs and number crunchers. It’s just we don’t have as many jobs for that priestess type of energy currently. So it gets relegated into this like mundane details, as opposed to their sacred work is to keep us connected to spirit and the cycles of what’s going on around us which is like beautiful and huge and amazing, right? It’s like

I love that so much. I mean that just bring that the Vestal virgin energy and like that. That’s beautiful. We need to give Virgos more outlets to bring that sacred energy in. That’s brilliant. If we wanted to anchor the Mercury Retrograde in Libra with an aroma within essential oil, what would you recommend? And when I say anchor it, Sharon, Sharon and I got to talk about this a little bit before we went live. We can use the sense in these these essential oils to to feel the energies astrologically even more holistically. You know, it can help again, this is a great way to bring sacred into mundane is to use a scent that is reminding you of the astrological energies and have the astrological invitation of the moment. So what would you recommend if someone is out there saying I would love to to be reminded of the invitation of Mercury in Libra Mercury Retrograde in Libra and then going into Virgo.

Yes, so two things. So one an essence that I love for Libra is Rhododendron and you want to think about when you’re using aromatherapy, it’s the consciousness of the plant right the consciousness of the earth that you are tuning into and trying to bring into your body into your field and connect with that right so it’s not just this like thing in a bottle, this oil that you’re going to kind of slap on right with intention. So Rhododendron really helps us to connect into like our spiritual family, our spiritual people, and it grows the Himalayas. It’s this amazing, beautiful plant. But Libra is always searching for like conscious equal partnerships to get that conscious reflection back right. So that’s one but also as we go retrograde with mercury. I think it’s like I was saying it’s such an amazing opportunity to move into that right hemisphere of our brain right and just take that break. I mean, it makes me like inhale and just feel relief of oh, I can kind of get off that linear constant focus, doing doing doing wheel for a while. And I really love Artemesia Vaal goddess and Artemesia and Neua which is also called Sweet Annie or basil they help us to balance the hemispheres of our brain and come into more alignment between them when we tend to be so left brain so linear, it kind of helps boost that right brain side. So those are some that I love. Right?

Okay, so more more to come as we go through the the the weekly weather this week. Sheridan is going to be giving us more aromatherapy suggestions based on the transits. Alright, so let’s start to break down the week what we have each day that is noteworthy.

Yes. So we start off the week with Venus has just moved into Virgo, right. So for some of us, that happens on Monday, and some of us that will have happened last night, Sunday night late, right so Venus moving into Virgo is that sacred feminine planet is now moving into that sacred feminine sign right. And also, when Virgo moves into I mean when venus moves into Virgo, it’s zero Virgo, which is where Regulus is the heart of the lion constellation one of the ancient royal stars. So there’s this combination of that priestess type energy, but also our heart and our love and our love for ourselves. Right. So we start to see the theme of the week emerging, right because mercury going retrograde Libra another place to look in find our heart within right that type of thing. So that’s a big thing that’s happening. Today on Monday, Heart of the lion, it’s a opportunity for us to just tune into like our heart based callings, our heart based sacred work, right, what’s our sacred contribution to the world? How do we love on ourselves, allow ourselves to walk our sacred paths, right? Allow is opposed to that pushing, just let it happen. Let it come to us trust our intuition, right. We feel it in our heart we know even if we’re scared to allow that to come forward. And I feel like Venus in Virgo moving into Virgo gives us such a beautiful opportunity for that and and essences that I love for that or, you know, Rose is an amazing one for Venus. Geranium is another amazing one for VNS. But Virgo. I love blue spruce, is such a powerful essence for Virgo.

What is it loose spruce,

blue spruce, spruce, okay, yeah, it’s the Colorado State tree where I am. And again, it just helps us step into that archetype, that energy, raise our vibration into more of an alignment with it and using it on a daily basis just helps us remember and tune into that as opposed to like, oh, I learned that and it’s kind of gone, you know, and helps to give us a way on a daily basis to align ourselves with what’s happening in the cosmos.

I love that. Would you recommend that? I mean, what, what could be a little ritual someone could do on you know, to do this daily this week, for example?

Yes. So I think it just comes down to just having an attention like anointing yourself, that’s a practice that goes back like 1000s of years, right? With intention. It doesn’t even have to be something long. It can be something as simple as you just, you know, here like I have a bottle, you just open the bottle, smell, welcome this consciousness into your field into your energy and then anoint yourself, like force them into your hand, put a little bit wherever you feel called to on your body, and set an intention each time with that, like my intention is to tune more into my sacred work. My intention is to tune more into the right hemisphere of my brain and the cyclical nature and tune more into nature, right? Anything like that.

Okay, great. All right. So that’s Monday. What about the rest of the week?

Yeah. So then, you know, kind of Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, it’s that time of when the moon continues its monthly relationship with all the celestial bodies, right, the moon’s gonna move around everything every month, and it’s moving quickly. So these are like, quick activations. And so the way I really like to look at that is, if it’s really pressing into something on your chart, you’re going to really feel it and experience Sit like if you, you know, the moon is going to conjunct Pluto on Tuesday. And if you’re in a Pluto cycle, then that’s going to really be up for you. Right for the rest of us, we may just feel some of the opportunity to feel some more of our emotions. Maybe he’ll some more of our emotions. But what I really like to look at is like, the themes of things. Where do I see this layer upon layer upon layer, right, so Oh, if you didn’t quite get it here, then here’s another opportunity. Now the moon is coming by Pluto. So if you didn’t get this Pluto cycle piece, you’re gonna get a little bit more, or you didn’t quite get it here, then I’m gonna add another layer in for you. So it’s like these quick things that are happening over those few days are just that moon movement around the planets, right? Because sometimes I feel like if I’m trying to focus on every little single thing that the moon touches, it gets overwhelming, right, because there’s sextiles and opposition’s and conjunctions and squares, and then I just start to shut down because I don’t know what to tune into. It just feels like too much, you know. So I like to keep it to like, big things that I can kind of wrap my mind around and focus on like, then on Friday, Mercury’s going retrograde and that’s where that’s a big cycle that’s gonna last longer and be bigger than the moon crossing over Pluto or crossing near Pluto in front of

okay, let me make sure I understand you essentially what you’re saying is Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, the major movement is with the we don’t have any other big transits happening. The next big transit happens on Friday. And for Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, the idea would be to track the moon’s movement and see if it’s hitting any aspects of your your chart that are already being emphasized. Correct.

Exactly. That’s what I think that’s what I really believe. And then, you know, get outside and look at the moon and see where it’s moving to in the sky and tune into that because it’s going to pass by Saturn and then by Jupiter, right. And that’s going to be cool to witness and see in the sky.

And are there any aromatherapy suggestions for Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday to be in tune with the moon’s movements.

Well, I think as far as like the moon Yes, I mean, I think it’s with the moon. It’s always great to tune into things like especially with that Pluto aspect of like vetiver is an amazing one because it’s a root. And vetiver is an essence that really kind of just grabs our hand and like helps us move through the underworld which in shamanic astrology, we say Pluto is an underworld planet. And so it is a you know, something that’s going to help us just walk through those deeper feelings, those deeper feelings that then lead us into more empowerment, right? As we go into and clear the things that are in our shadow or, or we’re more in denial of, then we step into more empowerment because we face part of ourselves that maybe we’re afraid of. And I think vetiver is an amazing one to be using in the month upcoming because Mercury’s retrograde it’s going to be going into that underworld place with the sun and then Venus is going to go into the underworld next week on September 14, where she becomes hidden in the beams of the sun. So vetiver can be our friend for a while going forward and helping us with that transformation time.

And love vetiver it smells really good to me. Okay. All right. So now I have permission to just dose douse it all over myself.

Like your friend that’s linking arms with you to go through like just provide a more gentle journey through your emotional world.

I love that. Okay, so now we have on Friday, Mercury is that the official day that mercury is going retrograde?

I mean, Mercury’s like slows down before it’s stationing and it’s going to stay in this area of the sky which it’s in the priestess constellation, right So again, there’s that layering of energies like Virgo priestess drew it brings in more of those vibrations, although it is going retrograde in Libra.

So I went through a priestess path journey at one point with formally Well anyway, I can talk about that another time. But what I’m wondering is how do you define priestess because what I I found is that people really didn’t know what I was talking about when I said I did this priestess path journey. What is a priestess? And for people that are you know, every day wanting to embody priestess energy, what does that look like to you?

Well, I think first and foremost it, it is about really tuning into the earth and the sky in some way, right finding your place in that greater hole of the cosmos and what’s happening. And you may be drawn to do that in a lot of different ways, right? So it can be setting time for meditation to tune into yourself and your heart and your intuition. Right. It’s a tuning in path. That’s what I think the priestess ultimately is, right? Yes, traditionally, the Priestess is the one who would hold the ceremonies, and bring us into a greater alignment with spirit. So any way that you’re doing that for yourself and your life that is walking the priestess path, right? Even if it just means at work, you go into the bathroom for a minute, and you breathe and feel your feet on the ground and tune into your heart, right? The light of your heart. Like Michelle said, a couple of weeks ago, I thought that was so beautiful, right? That’s the priestess, right? That’s the priestess path. That’s the sacred work right there.

I also think of it as any time where you’re holding space for other people, whether or not they’re aware of it, but it can be a very energetic work very much behind the scenes of like, let’s say you’re walking into a room and you’re wanting to to carry a certain intentionality with you or you’re throwing a party or you’re doing anything, it’s a you can actually set the space I know at ESR that astrology conference, we just went to the the creators of that event, they would they went to all the rooms where our speakers would be speaking and where we would be gathering and they cleared the space, you know, they they did an intentional space setting and clearing before we anybody ever showed up. So that to me is also modern ways to be doing quote unquote, priestess work is that you know, holding space with a lot of intention and infusing it energetically with certain qualities.

I love that. That’s good. That’s beautiful. Because we often do that so easily during our day right with a friend with our family with our kids or partner. Anyone at work. Right? So yeah, I love that. Thank you so much for saying that.

My pleasure. shared it. Okay, so we’re on. We’re still on. We’re still on Friday.

Yes. So Mercury retrograde. We talked some about it before, but I’ll add in as we move into that right hemisphere of our brain or we have that opportunity, shall we say, the Mercury Retrograde provides. It’s a time to tune into like our creativity, our artistic sides, right? Let that come out. Right? Have patience, like, tune into our intuition. be receptive tune into our hearts spend time in nature, right, what drops us into that wholeness of not always just looking at the next thing, the next doing thing, right? It’s a being opportunity. And so I aspire to you know, at some point, I’d love to have like Mercury Retrograde is the time I just focus on my art, you know, and that’s the intention, you know, so things like that, then I think it gives us this beautiful opportunity.

Sheridan, do you schedule time in to stay mindful of this? Or do you just kind of expect or somehow How do you make space for this type of inward reflection I think is what I’m trying to ask you.

Yeah, I do. I definitely do schedule it in like I you know, I’ve been working on a lot of art things I put time specifically to do that. You know, when I have I write in time to make sure I’m doing longer time maybe sitting in my altar or longer time sitting outside meditating while the weather’s still warm and nice here, you know, or scheduling in time to make sure I’m getting up early and going and seeing Venus right in rise in the morning sky before she’s about to disappear. You know, that type of thing I do I intentionally put energy in time towards it during this time.

Okay, so note to all of us to look at our calendars this week and see if we can schedule in some time or maybe be mindful about waking up a little bit earlier. Getting outside and looking at Venus is a great idea. I always know how much I miss her when she’s gone. You know when she when I can’t see her in the sky. So really cherishing the moments where we can see Venus in the sky and doing a little bit union with her sounds like some great ideas. Okay. So what do we have for the weekend? Sheridan?

So then we move into the Full Moon is right on the heels of Mercury Retrograde right. It’s only like I wrote it down I think it’s like six and a half hours after mercury goes retrograde, we have the Full Moon in Pisces, right? So again, it’s like another place of that like, layering component of things linked together, right? So you want to look for it on Friday night because the Full Moon is officially at least in Colorado and mountain time is at 4am. So right so Friday night will be the time to you know, this is a great thing that you could schedule into this week. Go and watch the sunset on Friday and watch the moon rise, right? That could be your Mercury Retrograde assignment for this week, if you will, right. You could use some of the essences for Pisces like an ocean pine or Yarrow would be amazing ones. So the Full Moon is happening. And the Full Moon, it seems like a lot that I see we talk about releasing at the Full Moon right. And there’s definitely the opportunity for that. But again, I feel like with Mercury Retrograde releasing is like another active thing, right? It’s another thing that we’re doing to try and make ourselves better in some way. Right? And so what about like celebrating yourself at the Full Moon, right? If we were in our more ancestral ways, we would be building a fire dancing around the fire having a celebration potluck, right? Spending time together, looking at this amazing Full Moon that’s coming up in the sky. So I like to when I hold Full Moon ceremonies is let’s celebrate ourselves celebrate something that special and unique about you. That is maybe even hard to say out loud, or you’re afraid to say or it makes you feel like you’re arrogant or something. It’s like no, it’s like what is your superpower? Let’s talk about it. Let’s bring it out. even write it and think about it and just let it be alive for you on the Full Moon and the Full Moon in Pisces is conjunct Neptune. So again, it’s more of that, like watery. Where do we tune in to spirit Pisces is the sign that wants to bring us into the heart, the love of spirit, right and love with the capital L the universal love. So again, it’s just another perfect opportunity to celebrate that energy within yourself, right? What’s something that you just love that’s so unique about you. That’s what I think this Full Moon gives us an opportunity for.

If you want to be really bold, I invite you to or if you want to like really take Sheridan’s suggestion, I invite you to put something that you want to celebrate about yourself in the chat in the comments. And allow it to be witnessed and allow yourself to feel what it feels like to actually put something out there of like, I love this about myself. This is really cool about me, this is something that’s unique about me or maybe something that’s ordinary about me but I just love whatever it is it’d be really fun for us to be able to celebrate each other. And a lot of times that just starts with you like putting words to it and even just taking the moment to think about it for a sec because I don’t think we do that we don’t think like what’s what’s great about me and how can I celebrate that. So I love and you know Sharon and I love the word celebrate it’s it’s in our tagline celebrating the beauty of astrology. Because it because there is so much to celebrate and I and I find that it’s great to remind ourselves of that and to take time and not feel bad about it. You know, we always feel so bad about celebrating ourselves or taking time to celebrate it’s like no actually, let’s just let’s just allow ourselves to do that. And I love the idea of letting the Full Moon be the guidance of that like Okay, time to celebrate Celebrate yourself celebrate each other.

Yes, I love that I love what you just said and suggested and how perfect right that’s such a healing opportunity which is so Pisces as well right and let us all celebrate you right and hold you up for that and yes, because what if we celebrated ourselves more and we honestly stepped into what our superpower is more what a beautiful world it would be right? I mean it would just be filled with love. That is love. It totally reminds

me of I have volunteered to teach Each a hula to the children at my children’s home school. Because the kumu hula hula who was going to do it wasn’t able to very last minute. So I was like, Okay, I’m not a kumu, which means teacher, and it’s a big honor to be a Kuhmo. And I’m not one, because I’m not one. But I’m happy to teach a simple dance, right? One of the days that practice, one of the girls like brought it, I mean, she was like, on fire, and she was feeling the dance. And she was, she was so expressive and exuberant and her dance. And the other little girls said, Hey, you stopped showing off? Why are you showing off? You shouldn’t be. Yeah, they they were teasing her for being so in herself and being so expressive. And so I said, Hey, I want all of you to show off the next time we do this, every single one of you show off, bring it, like, without any shame, just bring it that? What if we all did that? You know, what if we all just showed up in our beauty and our expression and didn’t have to worry about other people telling us that were too much or too big or too, whatever, or not enough, whatever. So it was this moment of like, wow, and I got to like sort of wit, like, re witness what happens when you’re a child and why you start to shut down and why you start to dim, because you get told that you’re too much in it, you should do that. And I watched this little girl kind of like, you know, really shrink inside of herself and feel really bad. And so instead of making them feel bad for shaming her, I just invited them all to show off. And they did and it was awesome. It was like a whole different experience the next time because I want you to like when you’re dancing, it needs to be a full expression from your heart. So bring it like do that. So everybody, this is your invitation, bring it celebrate, quote unquote, show off. We want you to Okay, so totally.

Absolutely. I love that. Right? We need that. We need that so much in the world. We need to step into our power. And that’s such a huge part of it. Wow. I love that. What a beautiful thing that you offered for them. Right? You just turned in?

Hopefully, yes. And hopefully it stays with them. Sheridan now we’re through Friday. Tell us about Saturday and Sunday.

So Saturday is that Full Moon is right for him about it. Yeah, I’m just saying go watch it Friday night. But you could go watch it Saturday night as well. It’s just closer on Friday night, but it actually happens in the morning of Saturday.

Can you remind us of the ritual? You said it was it? watch the sun set and the moon rise?

Yes, exactly right, because they’re opposite each other. So you’re gonna watch the Virgo sun set and the Pisces Full Moon rise on the other side. Right. So

last week, Joe gave us an electional. To end it was an invitation to watch the moon set. And to do a little ritual when the moon was setting. And so for the first time ever, I don’t think I’ve ever looked this up. I went to Google and I went moon set Maui date, and it gets 9:45pm. So you can look up sunset and moonrise and it’ll be the same time right because it is a Full Moon. So okay,

on a flat horizon, it would be the same I live in the mountains. So the sun will set before the moon rises because one has because the mountains are there. But it’s not a long time away from each other. Right. And you could have that be your ceremony, you could have the fire there or one thing that I love with like a water ceremony with it being the Pisces Full Moon is bring a cup of tea, bring a glass of water, share your celebration into that water, right speak it into the water, breathe it into the water and then drink it right while the moon is rising. You could put some of the essential oils that you can take orally into it if you want it if you know how to do that. Yeah, there’s a lot of things that you could do.

That is beautiful. And I’m imagining everybody in our community doing something and it doesn’t have to be elaborate. Like Sharon said, it can be very simple. You could just do the water thing. Just something that you want to celebrate about you say it into the water drink the water. Yeah, and please let us know how all this goes. Okay. And Saturday so that Saturday, what about Sunday?

Then Sunday we have the sun is training Uranus just late day hours later, right? All these things are just hours after each other. And so that is just that flowing type of relationship between our two means agent planet Uranus and the sun right the light that we’re learning to shine and our lives and our worlds, right. So, again, it’s just more opportunity along those Mercury Retrograde the Full Moon in Pisces, just giving another opportunity to like, step into your life change the way you perceive that about yourself, like allow that to come out, right, I’m so excited to see what people say in the chat and let us celebrate you celebrating yourself, right? It’s such a beautiful thing. And you’re also gonna see if you’re out like look for the, this moon is going to be moving moved by Saturn and then it’s going to move by Jupiter these nights as well. And that’s a lovely way to be able to tune in even more of that priestess energy to those planets in the sky. Because that’s really what astrology is, right, we can get really focused on like, my son is in cancer. And that’s what this means. But it means the sun was in that pie slice that is cancer in the sky when you were born, right? That’s what astrology is, is the astronomy. So those are opportunities coming in on Saturday, Sunday.

Thank you for bringing that in Sheridan. And it’s one of the things I love about all of you who have been trained at the shamanic astrology Mystery School, by Daniel Jia Mario, is that you have such a love and appreciation of the actual Sky, which seems obvious. It’s like, well, if you’re into astrology, you’re probably into the stars and the planets and like actually looking at them. But that has been lost so much recently. And a lot of the times, unfortunately, because we have so much light pollution, I was telling my daughters, the other night, we got out of the car, and the sky was glorious, and the stars were shining. And I said, and I don’t know how it came up. But I reminded them of when I lived in New York, and I never saw the stars, I never paid any attention. And, and I didn’t even, like know what they looked like really. And, and so it’s been such a such a healing experience to now be in a place where I can actually see the stars, and I’m not trying to make any of you who can’t see the stars feel bad, because there are other ways to connect with them. And a lot of times, it’s just a conscious awareness. And some of the things shared and has shared today with actually the essence of the planet or the sign in an oil or in it in a plant or in anything, you know, it’s all about energy and frequency and the archetypical energies can be held in so many other objects or things that we engage with in our lives. So there’s other ways to bring the stars to Earth, like literally. And there’s really no replacement to getting out under the night sky. I mean, it’s just it changes everything.

And a great way to start with that is just with the moon, because even in New York City, you’re gonna be able to see all the phases of the moon, right? Even if you live, where there’s so much light pollution, you’ll still be able to see the moon. And you can start there and just start tuning into the moon and knowing like what phases The moon is in and being able to see that in the sky. It anchors you into your place in the universe in such a lovely way. Right? It makes you start to feel that ancestral roots that are still so alive in your DNA we just haven’t been practicing. And all of a sudden it starts to light that up. Right. So the moon is like such a great jumping off place for that.

Are you ready for my summary? Sheridan? Yeah,

I can’t wait to hear it. I think you’re brilliant at how you do this. So I’m like, I’m really it’s like one of the most excited things. And one of the things I’m the most excited for today

to talk about a superpower I’ve been asked to celebrate about myself. Because at the conference, I can’t tell you how many people came up to me and said, I just love your summaries. And this is the funniest superpower that I never knew I had like summarizing What’s that. But really, when I think about it, it’s something I’ve loved doing. Most of my life, especially in college, was taking notes as my professor was speaking, and pulling out the gems and using my little highlighter pen. And who knew that I would at some point in my life, be using it and sharing it with all of you and I’m happy that you all enjoy it because it’s something I just do anyways. And I want to invite you to consider those things about yourself. Like the things that you do so naturally that you don’t even think anything of it. You might write it off. As you know, of course anybody could do this or this is just so boring about me. But maybe it is an amazing gift that if you embraced and shared, you would get reflected back to you how Special edits. So I’ve had that experience with my summarizing, which is hilarious. And so here’s, let’s just go back over the week. So the theme is retrograding back into ourselves. So taking this moment of mercury retrograde in Libra to reflect, especially in your relationships, and what your relationships reflect about you, and also what they don’t say about you. So you know, maybe someone is trying to put something on you that isn’t actually you. So really taking the time to contemplate those, those boundaries and what parts you need to own about yourself, both The Good, the Bad, the Ugly, I guess that’s three things not both, and the things that that are not you and you can just say, You know what, that’s actually not me. Who am I, and really, in the reflection of others, this is an opportunity for you to get more centered, and clear and who you are. This is also an opportunity to step more fully into creativity. And one of the essences that you can use to really harness this energy is Rhododendron, which is a Libra essence. But also you said are Tunisia. Am I saying that I art amis?

Yes, yeah. So like a lot of people know what, Wormwood or mugwort? Those are Artemesia. Yes, perfect.

Yes. Also basil, which I just love. We’ve We’ve grown prolific basil in our garden, and it smells so so good. All right, we also have Venus going into Virgo. And this is the sacred feminine planet, going into the sacred feminine sign. And also, it’s at zero degrees of Virgo. So this is Regulus energy. And this is really where the priestess the heart and the love of self can all come together. This is an opportunity to tune into your sacred work and your sacred contribution and to recommit to walking your Sacred Path. So what is that, and again, that can be something really mundane, like or seeming mundane, or it can be something that seems more grand, whatever that is to you. This is some some oils to work with. Today on Monday, Rose Geranium and blue spruce. Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday is really all about the movement of the moon. So tracking that movement of the moon and seeing if it if it if it hits any sensitive points on your chart right now. So I know right now, for me, Pluto is basically right on my Venus. And so it sounds like the moon is going to be hitting that point. And it could be bringing some more things up from the underworld where Pluto likes to hang out. And vetiver is our friend for that vetiver is helping us as a friend linking arms moving us through the underworld. On Friday, we have mercury retrograde. And this is again, creativity, artistry, intuition, heart nature, bringing opportunity for all those things to really anchor more deeply in our lives. Make sure you schedule some time to explore those things. Those are all things that need space, right? They’re all things that you can’t like Rush, you can’t force they need space to emerge. So giving yourself that kind of space. We also have the Full Moon in Pisces on the heels of the mercury retrograde at 4am. Ocean pine or Yarrow? Am I saying that right, Yara the sense that you recommend for that, and to do some sort of ritual, this is your invitation to celebrate yourself, if you want to do it in the chat. If you feel shy about that, you can send us an email, you can send an email to support at astrology hub.com and say, I’m celebrating this about myself. But also, I’ve talked a little bit about this in the weekly whether I’m doing this songwriters journey, which is like I’ve never considered myself an artist, or a musician or any of these things. So this is a total like pushing the growing edge for me. And this week we’re we’re doing it’s called daring to suck. We’re being invited to do something that makes us blush and something that we don’t necessarily consider ourselves good at. And it’s about facing that fear of like not being good and not being good enough. And so I’m I’m inviting you to do something that makes you blush right now and put something you’re celebrating about yourself in that chat. Okay, we’re doing it together. We’re all we’re all in this together. Let’s see we have this is also conjunct Neptune. So this is bringing in those more watery emotional elements into this Full Moon. Sunday we have sun trine Uranus the change Agent meets the sun are your essence. And this is an opportunity to change the way you perceive yourself. Correct? Yeah. Is there anything you want to add to that?

Well, I just want to say like I love that you brought in what your superpower was right that we can celebrate that right that this is something that you’re really good at. Right? Let’s lead the charge of what we’re asking everyone else to do. Like I would say one of my superpowers is making the really complicated, simple, I really like to do that. I love working with beginners on things, right. So yay, let’s celebrate ourselves here as we’re encouraging all of you to celebrate yourselves. And I just want to say depending upon your chart, you’re going to feel the cycles more or less like you’re saying, like the moon, going across Pluto will Pluto sitting on your Venus is going to be a bigger thing for you. Sometimes we’re going to kind of float through these cycles, because it’s not touching into our personal life evolutionary path intentions, right. But for you this moon going across Pluto is because it’s touching into your divine feminine Venus path that you have set for yourself coming into this lifetime. So go with it right go with what you’re feeling, what’s happening, the flow of it, trust your own experience, I think that’s one of the most important things we can all do.

Thank you for sharing your superpower shared and so cool. And it is really a gift. I’ve said that to any astrologers who have that unique capability to make something as complex as astrology simple and accessible and easy to understand. It is definitely a superpower.

So the X signs that’s available at astrology hub.com/aroma.
