HD Rx Week 8: Doubt


Hello loves and Happy Weekend! I hope this past week of Harmony has brought some peace and teamwork into your space. Today the Sun moves into the very skeptical gate 63 until March 7th.

This transit will kick off the start of Mercury Retrograde and really encourage us to re-think and re-evaluate.


This week is all about Gate 63. If you have Gate 63 defined (colored in) in your chart, you will notice this transit within yourself, if you don’t have Gate 63 defined then you will mostly notice this energy within your interactions. Either way, you will have access to it and will have the opportunity to take advantage of this transit. Click here to get your chart, if you haven’t already done so.

This will be a great week to have everything in order and to be prepared to prove your findings. Doubt is in the air and people want to see proof. It can be easy to take this personally but don’t, this suspicious energy is only meant to be directed at the info that’s being presented, not at the person presenting it.

If you’re suddenly starting to doubt yourself, lean into it and know it will pass. Use this as an opportunity to reflect on your plans to make sure you have everything you need and that you didn’t leave any detail out. This isn’t a time to make any big changes in the heat of the moment, just honor Mercury Retrograde by re-visiting these things you’re feeling skeptical about.

The energy will lighten up next week, but take advantage of this time right now to check in with yourself to make sure your plans are solid.

Gate 63 can be expressed through The Hermit, since the Hermit just wants to uncover the truth. Especially with doubting yourself, it’s important to remember that it’s just idle thoughts until you have proof.

As the Sun transits, there are ideal days each week to do certain things. Here’s how they fall this week:

SATURDAY: Today is for planning your week ahead. It’s an ideal day to make sure you have everything you need in your schedule, send confirmations for upcoming meetings, meal prep, write your weekly to-do list and set your intentions for the next few days. To get you started, I’ve included some thought provoking journal prompts to get you thinking about how to maximize this transit.


  • Who in my life do I find myself becoming suspicious of?

  • Am I suspicious of them, or the information they try to share with me?

  • Why am I doubtful of them?

  • Are people suspicious of me?

  • How well is it received when I share my doubts without being asked?

  • Do I doubt myself?

  • What are some times in the past that I doubted myself for no reason?

  • What can I do to start to trust myself more instead of defaulting to doubt?

SUNDAY: Today is a day where you may get noticed and called out. Think of the 2nd line Hermit on the Hexagram - she stays secluded in her little cave until someone notices her and calls her out, and at that time she is engaged with the world around her. A great day to stay put until a friend asks you for coffee, also not the best day to approach your boss about a desired promotion.

MONDAY: Today is a day of running into things, things catching you by surprise.  It could be good or bad, such as getting unexpected news or bumping into an old friend that you’re happy to see. Can you get unexpected news on other days of the week? Of course, but today is the day when that energy is the most heightened. As far as the types go, (non-emotional) Projectors and Generators thrive on days like today and yesterday, because the energy is in their favor to receive invitations and have something to respond to.

TUESDAY: Today is a day of completion via action. It could be low vibe or high vibe, such as someone getting fired or someone closing escrow and getting the keys to their new home. It doesn’t have to be that big, it can even mean finally going to your cable provider to cancel your service since you only watch Netflix anyhow. Since this is considered a transpersonal day, it’s a day where people are more likely to be friendly. Save your outside errands (especially shopping, this is the best shopping day of the week) for today and you will face them with more ease. Today, tomorrow and the day after that are going to be the best days for non-emotionally defined Manifestors and Manifesting Generators.

WEDNESDAY: Today’s theme is practicality. Yesterday was the best shopping day of the week, but today is when you want to do your practical shopping like buying groceries or bringing your car for an oil change. People are more likely to notice and judge one another today, and reputations can be at stake. For example, if you’re going to be late for work today for whatever reason, your boss may be quick to judge you as unreliable ... even if it was outside of your control. On the flip side of that, today can really be your day to shine. Important meetings and presentations should be saved for today, the energy to impress your audience will be in your favor. Now is also the time to ask your boss for that promotion :)

THURSDAY: Today is the last day of the transit week, and therefore the day to relax in the way that’s best for you. If you’re pre Saturn Return however, today may be a day to do something wild. If you’re a parent, know that today your little one may be extra rambunctious. Regardless of where you’re at, today will be a day to reflect. Below I’ve got some journal prompts to get you started.


  • If I’m always suspicious of a person in my life, what conversations need to happen to resolve or end this relationship?

  • Am I transferring my own limiting beliefs onto others?

  • How can I separate the information from the individual when I’m expressing doubt?

  • How can I make it a habit of reminding myself of all the times when self doubt didn’t serve or protect me?

Until next time,
