As we enter the second half of the year, August is shaping up to be a significant month astrologically. With the dual birthday signs of Leo and Virgo, a fiery Leo New Moon on August 16th, the 3rd Mercury Retrograde on August 23rd and a powerful Blue Moon in dreamy Pisces rising on August 30th, there's a lot to look forward to. However, the event that began on July 22nd- Venus retrograde, will be active under this New Moon, bringing focus not only on love and relationship issues but also on our insecurities concerning money issues and self-worth. It's important to be kind to ourselves during this week of emotional ups and downs.
The New Moon brings an energy of renewal, new beginnings, and self-reflection. It's an opportunity to manifest our desires and dreams. Use this time to set intentions for what you want in your life, reflect on your goals, or simply spend time alone in contemplation. Remember, the dark is where the magick happens.
This is an opportune time to set intentions related to self-confidence and self-love. Leo is ruled by the sun and the fire element - the realm of passion, desire and drive – encouraging us to be bold and brave. The time is right to focus on your Solar Plexus & Throat Chakras. The 3rd Chakra is all about will, self-esteem and trust. According to mystics & yogis around the world it is the center of our being. The Throat Chakra allows you to communicate your true self. After all you cannot speak your truth if you do not believe and love who you are. This August let the lion empower you to create the life you want and step back into your power.
