Today on the podcast we have Kathleen Barry back to talk about Mercury Retrograde!
I know – it’s everyone’s favorite astrological phenomenon (or at least the one we hear about the most), but in this podcast, we’re going to do a deep dive in Mercury Retrograde to understand how it can be a catalyst for self-discovery, boundaries, and rebalancing in our crazy, tech-obsessed world.
This conversation, while wonderful, is imperfect – our tech, unsurprisingly, wasn’t working wonderfully, so you might miss a few words throughout the podcast. No fear – you’ll still get some amazing ideas and practices from the podcast.
Intermittent fasting has been all the rage in health and wellness in the last few years, but did you know that forms of intermittent fasting have been part of ancient medical traditions for thousands of years?
In Ayurveda, the ancient Indian system of medicine and sister science to yoga, the digestive system is the most important organ system for wellness and vitality. For the past 5,000 plus years, Ayurveda has recommended a 12-hour window of fasting every day to promote the steady release of toxins from the body and the proper regeneration of the body’s energy and digestive power every day.
Nicole is an amazing creative and business woman. She started her interior design business 10 years ago when she realized that being a lawyer wasn’t using her gifts and energy to the best of her ability. I’m so glad that she made that change, because she now brings a wealth of kindness, empathy, and a brilliant design eye to her client’s homes. I often think that Nicole has so many clients because you just want to hang out with her, and after this conversation, I know that many of you will want to hang out with her too.
When exploring Stephen Covey’s first habit of Highly Effect People, I realized just how hard it can be to set real, meaningful goals and commit to acting on them.
Covey’s first habit is worded “begin with the end in mind.” He’s saying when we look at our end goal and name where we want to be, we can use that ending to direct our actions and decisions in the present.
Stephen Covey wasn’t the first to think that this was an important habit to live by. In Stoic philosophy, momento mori (“remember death”), is a keystone habit espoused by Socrates, Marcus Aurelius, and Seneca.
Most of us know the sign based on our date of birth, but do you know that you actually have MULTIPLE signs? These signs are based on the positions of the planets at the time and place of your birth. With this information, you are armed with a fuller picture of your personality, work, life, and values.
Today on our Moon Chat, resident astrology expert Kathleen Barry is sharing how to find your birth chart and how to interpret it. We’re dropping a TON of knowledge, and it’s going to help you look at yourself in a whole new way.

It’s time for another amazing moon chat with our resident astrology expert, Kathleen Barry.
In today’s episode, we’re talking about the full moon in Virgo, getting your inner life in order, and embracing the light and the dark. You’ll learn about how linear thinking and overthinking can get us into trouble, why seasonal affectedness disorder is *definitely* a real thing, plus learn a little biology along the way!
One of my favorite parts of the conversation is about how we’re never *quite* at perfection. We are always learning, retooling, and reshaping. This doesn’t mean we suck – it means we’re human! And this waxing and waning of the moon reminds us that we can tread the same territory again and again, yet still be learning something new.
Throughout biology and even in our own biochemistry, the world is held together by stable equilibrium: when something gets out of balance, compensation mechanisms come into play, bringing us back to balance.
Unfortunately, we often find it harder to believe in that stable equilibrium within ourselves. We fear feeling emotions fully, or get overly controlling in our own lives.
Today on the podcast, we have a special interview with my friend, colleague, and fellow wellness warrior – Ingrid Vaicius. We talked about her path from foreign policy to wellness coaching, the major signs that told her she was in the throws of burnout, and how she nursed her body back to health. We also talk about her evening routine, what she does when she turns off screens at night, and the lesson she would share with the listeners and world at large.
Ingrid is smart, funny, practical, and honest. I know you’ll love her as much as I do.
