  • Love how you caught those Jupiter transits and how it manifested as Kelly joining you, departing then returning. Cry emoji – Thank you Kelly for all of your wonderful insights!

    Would like to hear more thoughts on Debilitated planets in mutual reception. Like we just had Mars in Libra while Venus was in Scorpio. Or for example is there belief in remediation for a Venus in Virgo if Mercury is in Libra? Is there remediation for aversion with mutual reception of this sort?
    Just some thoughts that seem to come up on the regular and I’m curious about other astrologers thoughts on this.
