The month starts off a little tense with the Sun (in Leo) and Mercury making tough aspects to Saturn and Uranus. Your energy may be unstable and inconsistent as you navigate this first week. Practice deep breaths and patience. The frustration will subside as the week progresses toward the New Moon in Leo on August 8. This is a big one, friends!
August 8 is known as the Lion’s Gate Portal, a powerful energy portal created when the Sun aligns with Sirius, the brightest star in the night sky. Celebrated for centuries as the luckiest day of the year, this year it gets a boost when it coincides with the New Moon in Leo!
The new moon amplifies the energy of this alignment, allowing you to manifest like a pro. Plan to integrate some deep reflection into your new moon ritual, like an extra long meditation or solo time in nature, so that you can hear and connect with the whisper in your heart. Get clear on what you want - what you really want - and speak your desire into the Universe.
If you’ve been feeling the need to break out of a box and call more into your life, now is the time!
There continues to be some astrological tension and the need to individually and collectively release around the Full Moon in Aquarius. You might remember that we had a Full Moon in Aquarius last month, as well, making this a blue moon.
When meditating on the energy of this upcoming moon, I had a powerful vision of a lioness roaring into the open sky. I could feel the intensity and range of her emotions that were being released from her body. The lioness, like many of us, accepts her duty as nurturer and provider, approaching her pride with generosity and unwavering loyalty. But sometimes she needs to step away, feel into herself, dig up anything that doesn’t serve her, and let that shit go.
In order to be your best, you have to take care of yourself, too. Be the lioness. Release your fear and frustrations. Approach setbacks with humor so that you don’t carry them with you. Step into the limelight with confidence and go after what you want.
The sun moves into Virgo just hours after the full moon. If you are clear on what you want and have released stagnant energy holding you down, the energy of Virgo will help you get organized and aligned to go after it without looking back!
