Summer is almost over bringing us the last of the long hot days we will have been enjoying as of late. August feels like a month of peace washing over us. It has us wondering what the rest of the year will be like but yet it’s telling us to enjoy these last days of summer. Why, fret over the upcoming autumn; it’s not here yet. Instead, it is asking us, how we are going to end our summer. If you do not know yet, no worries. You will by the time this month is over.
August 7th will have us feeling Uranus retrograde in Taurus. Uranus will be retrograding for the remaining of the year; with this being said, we all will be feeling surprising effects of this Rx. Money changes and surprises will be had. Comfort levels will be tested. Earthly possessions will come to the forefront; you will be questioning if your possessions are of value. Clearing, fixing, decorating, and re-elevating your home will also be something all of us will be facing. Are you even happy where you are right now in life? What you once valued will no longer be the case. Major shifts in all these areas will be had and felt by everyone. Stay determine and don’t buckle under the pressure of this life changing retrograde.
August 11th is the partial solar eclipse new moon in Leo making us aware of a lot of things we weren’t particularly paying attention to before. Here is where we will learn a lot about ourselves and the things we truly desire and how we are going about attaining what we desire. Ego can and will get in the way if you notice others aren’t particularly interested in hearing what you have to say during this energy realignment. Don’t take it personally just realize that everyone is learning something about themselves too. Do be considerate and allow everyone their space and trust they will come to you to share their new findings. Not everyone will be able to understand what they have found so this where some will be able to help them understand and fix whatever findings need to be fixed. All fire and air signs will be happy with what they learned while the water and earth signs might not be so happy but will eventually learn this was a blessing in disguise. Gold, orange, and yellow candles are great to use for this Leo new moon. Bask in the sun just as much as you bask in the moonlight during this partial solar eclipse.
August 12th Mars will continue its retrograde through Capricorn changing our focus about our individuality and focusing more on our home, career, and status. What new goals do you want to accomplish by the time the year is done? What goals haven’t you accomplished that you set off to do when the year started? Instead of being triggered by outside individuals we will be feeling the triggers from family, co-workers, bosses(managers and supervisors), and karma will be felt by those who have been solely focused on their gains. Those who have been working hard and not steering off of their course will be richly rewarded once Mars stations direct on August 27 in Capricorn.
On August 19th Mercury will station direct in Leo. All that self-realization and self-reflection will bring you a solution to whatever might have been causing you trouble. This Rx was all about our desire, children, siblings, loyalty, ego, pride, outside appearances, and basically what you show the world. A new you has emerged and now it’s time to share what you learned during this shift in energy with everyone who is still by your side and have joined your side. When you look back on the past several weeks you will be very proud of yourself and your self work. Hold your head up high you did a great job!
At the end of the month we have our full moon in Pisces on the 26th. Making us dream big dreams. Making us believe in our dreams. Allowing our imagination to run wild in order to make our dreams come true. This imaginative moon will give us the energy to go big or go home but we will decide to go big and take a risk of a lifetime in order to see how blessed we really are. The Universe has our backs and it will be proven with this moon. Candles to use with this moon will be any that remind you of the sea. Blue, green, white, or scented ocean candles and also seashells will be great to use during your full moon rituals.
Finally, on August 27th Mars will station direct in Capricorn. People will no longer be getting mad or wanting to start war. During this Rx in Capricorn people were feeling its effect in not only their work, finances, home, but also were feeling it with their motivation, reputation, and leadership skills. We were forced to slow down, face reality, and make a concrete plan on our next move. Now, that Mars is moving forward do expect very pleasant surprises. Unexpected gains and fortune you thought you would not produce but yet here you are producing it and keeping it. You worked hard for this. Bask in this glory. Pay it forward and be thankful.
August isn’t a month of quiet but it is a month of peace from all the chaos we have been experiencing. Now, is time to finish off the summer in style with those we love and trust. Giving back to those who need it the most and moving forward like the master that you are of your creation.
