Happy August everyone! The calm is settling in now and thank the Gods it is. July was a very intense month and I know I felt the intensity of it all. The phoenix burnt itself and now has risen from the ashes but yet I feel some are still burning and are about to rise from the ashes. Divine timing is definitely at play here and everyone’s timing is different. No one is racing each other but instead we are all in this rat race called life. Yet, the energy of this month is saying slow down this isn’t a race but instead it is a journey. It is an adventure and why not enjoy this adventure and take in all the sights and smells. Either way August will have us in calmer energy but it won’t happen until the middle of the month.
On August 11th we have the biggest planet in our solar system stationing direct and thank the Gods that it is!!! Jupiter has been retrograding since April and it made all of us slow the fuck down and it made us pay attention to all the details in our lives. Jupiter not only rules philosophy and higher learning but it also rules fortune. So, whatever misfortunes you experienced during these months were actual blessings and the fortune you did receive during those months were to help you to plummeted forward when this gas giant starts moving direct once again. So, hold on to your hats because we are all going to be launched into forward motion. All the details have been accounted for and now the arrow can be let go of because now is the time and you will hit the bullseye.
Mercury enters Leo on the same day and will remain there until September 14th. Our communication is on fire now. Where as before it was in watery Cancer and it had us expressing and understanding our feelings and bought a lot of psychic awareness onto our immediate world. Now, with Mercury in Leo not only are we expressing ourselves but we are also showing off. This energy helps us to express our inner most desires, show them, and go after them. Ego can and will get in the way so do your very best to think five times before speaking and check yourself if you find yourself in a place of ego. We can get all that we desire with the right wording and those that we go after will definitely help fulfill those desires. Remember as much fun as fire is to watch and how necessary it is; it’s also a destructive force that can destroy all your hard work. So, a word of caution keep your fire under control and the warmth of your fire will bring those close to you in order to share in it’s beauty and warmth.
On this same day we also have Uranus starting it’s retrograde in Taurus until January of next year. Unexpecting surprises involving money, home, comfort, and luxury will be felt by the world. This energy is an overall collective shift; Uranus has been in Taurus since May of 2018 and will remain there for another six years. Everything involving monetary and comfortability is being shaken to the core. We are all feeling this collective shift and at first it’s very shocking but the end result will be a pleasant surprise. Uranus rules Aquarius and being innovative is a plus. Taurus which is ruled by Venus actually brings us very beautiful surprises in the home front, money, comfort, and love. Now, that Uranus is retrograding we are seeing where things are no longer working and how unique ideas can help us move forward. Being fixated on our unique ideas is actually a good thing right now. It’s helping us to stay the course and giving it all the attention it requires for it to be long term. Don’t worry about those things that didn’t work out; be thankful that they didn’t and you can let it go in peace.
The 15th of August is our full moon in Aquarius bringing in those rapid changes we need in order to keep the momentum going. Whatever shocking news you receive during this time it’s actually for your benefit. Even if at first it seems chaotic and like it makes no sense you will soon realize it does make sense. This is exactly what you needed in order to bring on these last minute changes. Without these out of the blue changes you would not be able to keep moving forward. The energy of this moon is actually a very positive one that we all will be thankful for. There’s nothing to worry about here and even if you do get bad news it’s actually going to benefit you in the end. Just don’t let it deter you and consume you where you remain fixated on the negative and not seeing the positive it brings.
Mars enters Virgo on the 18th and will remain there until September 14th. Here the energy is calm, cool, and collective but once it is ignited it can be quite harsh, critical, and judgmental. Yet, this energy isn’t about passing judgement but it’s about analyzing and healing what NEEDS to be healed. Here we are learning to temper our temperament and to really consciously decide what battles we should actually be fighting. If you are one of those who seem to constantly be fighting you will be crushed in this energy. It will seem like you are being attacked but in reality you are being made to see what you reflect onto others and how this needs to be healed. Finding a healer during this time will be increasingly important for your personal growth. Stop resisting and start healing. The healing you do now will bring you the vibration you need to be in order to continue on your path of growth. You are being supported at this time because the help was always there you just didn’t want to accept it or see it. Open up, start healing, and accept the help being offered.
Venus on the 21st enters Virgo and remains there until the 14th of September. Even more healing will be occurring at this time. This time it’s all about our love and how we express it and show it. Partnerships of all kinds are being highlighted and what is being shown to us is the ones that are in desperate need of healing. Again, if you are feeling attacked it’s because you are being shown your reflection. Purging isn’t going to help but healing will. You can purge all you want but if you aren’t acknowledging your role in things than you aren’t healing nor are you growing. If you want what you never had before than you gotta do something you have never done before. Fear here is not an option; courage on the other hand is. The more courageous you are the more you will break out of your comfort levels and stagnation. Allow both Mars and Venus to show you the way, observe, analyze, and heal.
On the 29th we have Mercury also entering Virgo and Mercury is home here. In the astrology world some of us astrologers believe Mercury is just the temporary ruler of Virgo and it’s rightful ruler will be discovered soon enough. Mercury ruling Virgo of course has its benefits but it really does not suit here because Mercury is a fast moving energy and Virgo is a slower moving energy. The keyword for Virgo is methodical and now with Mercury being at home until the 14th of September as well; being cautious goes out the door. We will all be moving at a very steady pace, we will be taking everything in, attention to detail will be happening, but the action is what’s going to push us forward. Communication is definitely key during this time and our words can either bring us what we want or it can hinder us. Remember you get more bees with honey than with vinegar and if you want what you want than observation, analyzation, and choosing your words wisely is of great benefit to you. Do take note with this third planet being in Virgo you are in fact being made to see how healing is ESSENTIAL. Words are everything in this world but if there is no substance or action behind them being left in the dark is your only option. Heal your communication skills and I promise you change will occur overnight.
Lastly, On August 30th we have our new moon in Virgo plus the sun is in Virgo as well. This is a lot of Virgo energy but knowing that Virgo is the healer of the zodiac is very important here. You see Virgo rules health and with all these planetary alignments in Virgo we are being made to see where healing has to occur. I am sorry to say to those who thought you were healing or doing healing work you will be shown how you have only been skimming the surface of your actual healing. This new moon is not about putting a bandage over the wound but it’s about healing this wound so no more bandaging is required. Do expect though a very beautiful surprise seemingly out of nowhere and from someone you would have never expected it from. You deserve this attention and you deserve to be calm and at peace. You earned this tranquility and your reward is well deserved.
Enjoy August for it holds so many beautiful surprises which will have you crying from joy and shouting thank you to the Gods.
