It wasn’t until a couple of years ago that I was introduced to salt lamps. Truthfully, I didn’t really even understand what the big deal was. I mean, what the heck was everyone getting so excited about? A lamp made out of salt? I really didn’t get it! Until…. Continue reading “Breathe Easy With Salt Lamps”
Before you get started creating the change you want to see in your life, I would like to begin with a quote that I heard years ago from Dr. Phil,
You can’t change, what you don’t acknowledge.
You will only be able to create the change you want to see in your life when you first acknowledge that you need to change. Since you are here reading this right now I will have to assume you are ready for change.
BUT, not so fast…
There is something else you will need to know before you start creating change in your life…DON’T RUSH!!
Change does not happen overnight. It has taken many years for you to get to where you are now. You have collected up many ideas & beliefs about life and have stored them all up in your subconscious. So, now it’s time to examine and clean out all the cache & cookies you have stored up through a lifetime of experiences.
A lot of how you view life comes from your perspective, your perspective has come from all the influences you’ve had from parents, teachers, friends & family. Through each phase of your life you have developed ideas & beliefs about life that have, inadvertently come from, not only the influence of people, but also, your challenges & the environment you grew up in.
So, that being said, if you want to change you need to slowly examine where your ideas & beliefs about life, yourself & others come from. Here are the topics we will cover in this program…
Step 1: Laying the foundation…
Step 2: Have some fun…
Step 3: Get to know yourself…
- I am
- I be
- I do
Step 4: Opening your heart…
- To receive
- To love
- To give
Step 5: Interacting with others…
Step 6: Using your intuition…
- Life lessons
- Inner knowing
Step 7: Spirituality…
All these aspects of your life make up your entire life. You will have to dig around inside yourself, unearth some positive & negative emotions, separate out what you want to keep & what you want to let go of and then, plant the seeds for lasting change.

The October full Moon is also the Harvest Full Moon. The harvest full moon is when the moon is closest to the Northen Hemispher and the beginning of preperation for Winter. Native Indians saw this as the time to start hunting and gathering food and necessary essentials before Winter begins.
Aries Full Moon is full of fire and spice and everything nice. Passion and intensity will be a big part of this day and week. Feeling the need to fight for what you believe in is what it’s all about. This will come from a passion within that is not always apparent and obvious. It will be important to communicate your needs with love and tame the beast within that wants to be released. Although Mercury has a strong opposition to the Moon this can be overwhelming and it can be hard to find the appropriate words. All of this is happening in the house of one on one relationships and self needs. Balancing the two is often difficult, however this is a time to let them work together for the greater good without judgement or guilt.
While normally the Full Moon is a time to sit back and let the Universe work for you, this Full Moon signals action (Aries) to prepare for shorter days and colder weather. As the bright Sun shines its light on the delicate Moon and exposing the emotional side of your life, Mercury is also sitting opposite the Moon demanding that these emotions are communicated and issues resolved.
The two great lovers of the Universe are having a romantic meet up right now and adds a second level of emotions to the mix. Mars and Venus have been chasing each other around the Zodiac for a long time now and finally they are together. Their meeting will not last long so use this energy to feel the connection with those you love. Add some excitement to the evening by sharing a candle light dinner with your family. Open your heart and mind to possibilities beyond your control and embrace your inner passion to make a difference in this world.
Aries full Moon is full of action, passion, war and peace. Like the Native Indians it is time to store your energy and harvest your love so you can concur the cold and dark moments in life.

September 2017, Aries 21 March – 20 April…
Application and practical measures are the name of the game for you this month, dear Aries. Your Sun is blasting off this month in your 6th house of health and order. By now you are in the full swing of routines with summer coming to an end and it feels good. Reorganizing and clearing clutter is what you are focused on this month. It will be about putting motion to the thought, working together in your daily activities to make it all go smoothly. Shifting gears from the internal energy of Leo to a more serving energy of Virgo can sometimes be hard in the beginning, however you have already thought about this and prepared as best you could. This does not combat the anxiety, so be sure to take a break every now and then, it does not all have to be today! The Full Moon in Pisces can work to your advantage as the power of intuition sometimes escapes you. As the Full Moon appears on Sept. 6th and will be seen in your 12th house of Spirituality, you will have no choice but to get a little clairvoyant and have a premonition or two. Your Sun is sitting opposite the moon in the 6th house requiring you to make an emotional commitment to incorporate your spirituality with your daily routine and wellbeing. Mars is also there to push you along as he has entered your 6th house just the day before. Your energy will be strong and you have the capacity to make the adjustments for this to happen without stress. Saturn is also in a great position to help out with the discipline and strength to pull it off. One thing to mention is that Neptune will be present in the 12th house as well and is very comfortable in making thing appear differently then they seem. This is not meant to be hurt you, but to make you think. However, the potential for emotional outbursts and misunderstanding are strong and it is probably better to walk away and contemplate the situation before acting. Stay focused on clearing the clutter because the New Moon on Sept 20th gives you a chance to evaluate and make changes to help streamline your daily activities. However, these changes come with a very familiar feeling as your Moon and Uranus do a little dance. One is saying “forget the rules, who has time for that” and the other “there is an order of things that must be followed”. You are no stranger to this, but now the shoe is on the other foot and you must choose one from the other. On a lighter note, on Sept 30th another very familiar dance is taking place between Mars and Venus who will not take second place to anything. The love gates open and these two unite with a clear and pure objective, so in turn you will keep your intentions clear and pure as usual.
September 2017, Taurus 21 April – 21 May…

This may be a time to rethink your passion and reinvent yourself in the work place. However, your mind is still on the fun activities that have consumed your summer. You will want to make one last effort to get out and about before the cold weather begins and the Full Moon in Pisces will help to make it happen. Your emotional connection to friends will be strong and you are in the mood for fun in the Sun. Uranus is working in your 1st house sitting opposite Jupiter in the 7th house of relationships. This is a good time to evaluate yourself and the roll you play in your personal relationships. Change is necessary, but not always easy for you, so be sure to understand what your expectations are before moving in any direction. Jupiter is asking you to form spiritual bonds and not superficial connections. As the month progresses these feelings become even more strong. Conflicts are resolved by Sept. 15th and you could have a change of heart that will have a great impact on your perspective in life.

When the Sun moves into Libra you will be able to see the efforts necessary for time with family matters. Stress levels are high on Sept 28th as Jupiter moves opposite Uranus in your 6th house probing you to take a more holistic approach to your wellbeing. Less physical activity will be in order and more soul searching. Moving on to the main event for the month is the clear connection between your ruling planet Venus and Her Love, Mars. They have been chasing around the universe for this moment for some time and like you, they need to spend a little time in a quiet place to feel the love and affection even if it is only for a short while. This reboots your energy and renews your faith in the one you love.

September 2017, Cancer 22 June – 23 July…
What! Did you say something? LOL It will definitely be hard for you to keep your comments to yourself this month as your Sun is perched in your 3rd house of communications. The funny thing is what most people may not realize is that Cancers have a great ability to say the things other people are thinking. While you don’t find this a problem others may seem to differ. That being said, this month nobody is going to stop you from saying what you need to say. Mercury is the ruler of the third house and when he starts moving forward the action begins. It will be a very interesting month for you, chatty catty, and you will have fun no matter what. If anyone can get away with words it’s you. Learning new things is another great force for you right now and is the perfect time to take a class or share ideas with others. Listening is fine way to learn new things and gain more information, that is if you can stay quiet long enough. This is a time to get out there and soak in the vibrations and experiences around you, it will only benefit you mind and give you more information which is what you are craving this month. Mercury moves direct on Sept. 5th and the Full Moon arrives on Sept 6th providing such great forces in your life.

From Sept. 8th through the 22nd the combined energies of Mars, Sun, Mercury and the New Moon will have a profound effect on you and will ignite an explosion that will be hard to contain. All this energy can lead to arguments and frustrations, so be sure to keep yourself in check. Neptune is working in your 9th house planning a surprise that can be distracting you from seeing the reasons for your anxiety. Meditation and yoga can help ease the stresses and get your perspective back on track. The New Moon on Sept. 20th in Virgo will guide you to understanding as your emotional connections become at one with your ambition and goals. Writing a list of ideas and following a course of action is best at this time. When the Sun transitions from Virgo to Libra your loyalties return to home and family.

September 2017, Leo 24 July – 23 August…
You have made your bed…. Now it is time to get up and start your month. After all the birthday activities, you probably need a rest. Well, that may be what others may think, but that is not what you are about. The work you have been putting in place for a while now will start to gain momentum and this will give you time to let it fester. It may be hard to refrain from purchasing more goodies than you need, especially as the energy moves away from you and moves into a more practical mood. All your hard work will pay off this month and now it is time to use your time wisely. Reorganize and strengthen your relationships with those who are working for the same goals. The Full Moon in Pisces on Sept. 6th will be a powerful one for you as the inner connection with your soul and your life’s work come together at this time along with the force of Mars giving you a good push. When Mercury starts its journey forward on Sept. 5th it will be a great time to expose your ideas and make a grand appearance with a group of investors. Your power point presentation will be a huge success and will be impressive. This has the potential to be a game changer in your life so it is best to take your time and get it right the first time. It is important to keep yourself on track and remember that slow and steady wins the race. It will be a very emotional time for you as the Moon is placed in your 8th house for the Full Moon. Focusing on the tasks at hand will benefit you greatly. All efforts on your part will come to a point of closure and although exciting, it may feel as though the future is uncertain, but good things are happening. The New Moon in Virgo on Sept. 20th allows for a clearer mind and relief from the stresses you have been under. The union of so many planets in your 2nd house indicate that all your planning will be activated and will now begin to move forward. Your passion and goals are all in moving in the same direction and it is invigorating. After the New Moon, the energy will lighten giving you a chance to catch your breath and focus on health and routine.

The Full Moon in Pisces opposite your Sun will be an important event as it will expose critical elements of personal relationships and could highlight deception or missed opportunity. This is time to connect with your emotional feelings and listen to your intuition. Like I stated before, this is a time for you to begin fresh, so in any situation should be evaluated differently, with a new perspective and attitude. Mars, Mercury and your Sun are all in your corner pushing you along for answers. But don’t be sad, this is a cleansing and not meant to be scary or hurtful. It will be important to note this day and pay attention to close partnerships. Where there is change there is always a chance of misunderstandings especially with Neptune sitting in your 7th house. Now let us take a look at what Mars has to say as he moves into you 1st house of self. He is very comfortable here as this is his domain and will want to show you the ropes. Your ambition will be strong this month and people will want to hear what you have to say. Take charge of situations, however it is important to understand that your energy will be high and could be hard for others to keep up. This will be aggravating for you as you have been on a lull lately and now that you have the momentum you will not want to waste it. Speaking clearly should not be an issue once Mercury is moving in full force after September 7th.

Leave behind the fear of disconnecting and embrace a freedom that has long been waiting for you. September is an extension of August and spending time with close friends are encouraged, this is a time for building on strong relationships and not meant to be wasted on mere acquaintances.

Facing the truth will also help to keep you in tune with your own values and beliefs.

We all need some down time from our busy lives and this is the opportunity for you to make the most of it. Although you can be a bit lazy, don’t mistake your lack of energy this month as laziness.

Be careful not to overdo it though, it could have a negative effect on those who are watching. The Full Moon in Pisces could bring you a little perspective on your motives. The Full Moon is sitting opposite your Sun in the 4th house of roots and foundations. It would suggest that your drive is to maybe retire early or you really need a “family” vacation. This also comes at a time when Mercury goes direct (Sept. 5th) allowing you the opportunity to communicate your needs in the work place and financial goes for your end game and will also help provide you clarity in your motives. Being creative about your finances are also a big part of this month as there will be some shift in finances that will require your attention.

september 2017, Capricorn 22 December – 20 January…
Changes are happening and that is not always comfortable but most definitely necessary at times. Your Sun is glowing in your 9th house of adventure and truth. This is about your truth and seeking answers, going back to school or taking a journey. Oh, the fire is just starting and it will be a hot, hot, hot month for you. The Virgo Sun likes to pick apart situations in order to understand the big picture, and with her sitting in your 9th house of truth seeking, your mind will be full of “what if’s”. The good thing about this is that you have a grand opportunity to sort and categorize things; which is something you love to do and will help you come to a sound conclusion in the end. What is in store for you this month? Let’s break it down in a good old fashion Capricornian way. First off is Mercury going direct on Sept. 5th and provides relief from what has seemed like running in place for you. This is a great time to begin projects that have been stagnant or have completely stalled. Make sure you don’t bring them all out at once. This happens at the same time Mars and Mercury move into your 9th house igniting a fire under your feet to get the job done. Don’t be alarmed, it is meant to be playful and exciting, BEATHE, you will be fine. Second, Venus is in your 8th house providing love and support for your revival of old projects or love. Because you have this support it is the opportune time dust off and start fresh with a new perspective. Third is the Full Moon on Sept. 6th in Pisces. This Full Moon is looking at your Sun from the 3rd house of Communication and is ruled by Mercury. This is an excellent time for you in a sense that doors will be open for you to speak your ideas without interruption. All this energy is pointing to an opportunity to begin with a clear objective and others will take notice. Fourth, there is a great aspect between Saturn, Jupiter and your Sun from Sept. 12th through 15th. These are great days to make commitments. Make sure you write them down because you could have a tendency to over book yourself. This will cause stress that you don’t need this month. You are on a roll and you don’t want to break the positive vibes. Fifth up is the New Moon in Virgo on Sept. 20th. Wow! This is a winner for you! Moon, Mars, Sun and Mercury all in Virgo in your 9th house things are going to happen. Set you intentions high and make sure you document everything. The details can get fussy with Neptune in your Third house so it is important that you have everything written down or even make a video. This is a good way to avoid misunderstandings in the future. Lastly there is the magical event with Mars and Venus that will be worth the wait. Feel the love and support. Travel plans may be in order as this month is full of adventure, fun and excitement as you make a new story with old characters.
September 2017, Aquarius 21 January – 19 February…
Let me set the stage for an enlightening experience for you this month. Your Virgo sun is sitting the darkness of your 8th house. The pure soul deep in the heart of the underworld. Ok so maybe I’m aggerating a bit, but it’s not far from the truth. The Virgo Sun is in your 8th house of death and rejuvenations. It is a time for you to take a deep breath and evaluate the situation. Virgo is a great sign for this as she is very analytical and always is looking for the pure and simple action. Listen to your intuition for most situations this month. A little time alone may be necessary to get away for the noise and clear your mind. Things have been a bit fussy with Mercury in Retrograde, but this soon ends on Sept. 5th, and you will feel much more in control of your own thoughts. Don’t feel bad if you are not feeling like being the social butterfly. This energy is very foreign to you and you may feel like you are getting sick. Nope it’s Just the Universe asking you to chill out and detach. This time of year, is meant for you to re-evaluate current events and make adjustments so you can move forward with as little stress a possible. The Full Moon in Pisces on Sept. 6th will add a bit of an emotional twist to the mix as you will be well advised to look over finances and possibly finding new investments. This is because the Full Moon will be illuminating your 2nd house of resources that can be helpful. Using your intuition will be key to working out your budgets and utilizing your resources. This is also a good time to promote yourself as your communication skills will be activated with Mercury and Mars working together. Although you work well with others, this is not a good time to begin new partnerships and would be better left for the end of the month. Gather your information and do your research before making any commitments, however you have the right energy to accomplish the detective work. Look forward to some changes in mid-month as you come up on the New Moon in Virgo on Sept. 20th that has the potential to affect your long- term investments. The Virgo New Moon will help you to re-evaluate your current situation in order to improve your long-term goals. If you need a day to lay low you may want to consider Sept. 28th. All this excitement from the month will come to a head as the Sun Transitions from Virgo to Libra having you second guessing your actions. Family will become focus, but with all your success it will be harder to find the time. As emotional as this will be, remember your long-term agenda. Planning time off with the family may be what it takes to bring you out of the funk and this is not just a weekend away its about putting the phone down and giving your full attention to the company around you. Feel the love on August 30th and be proud of your accomplishments.
September 2017, Pisces 20 February – 20 March…
This month starts off heading underground for some detective work to discover the beauty within your closest relationships. Your Sun is shining brighter now, more than usual as it begins to descendance into the 7th house of one on one relationships. When this happens, there is an extra boost of confidence and energy that projects your truth on to others. In doing this you have the mind and the soul to win over partners and create special bonds. The beauty of Virgo is working to help you categorize the importance of how your relationships have evolved. This is about intimate close relationships between you and another, not relationships in general. Your Moon (1st house) is ruler over your emotions and Pisces is ruler of intuition giving you a great balance in feeling connections and understanding the effect on your life. On Sept. 5th as Mercury starts its forward motion and Mars moves into your 7th house you will begin to feel the action pushing you to act quickly. Remember to stay grounded and don’t get to far ahead of yourself. These two are working opposite your 1st house and can have your head spinning with all the information and support you get from those closest to you. Sept. 5th through the 15th is a great time to negotiate contracts while your mind is witty and alert. Full Moons have a deep effect on Pisces and most of the time I may ask you to lay low, however this Full Moon on Sept. 6th is in your sign and appears in your 1st house of self. The glow is like magic, and should be felt by everyone. Pluto is active in your 11th house of group, organizations and Neptune is putting fairy dust on your soul. This is an exciting day to break out your magic wand and spread love and cheer to those in need. Your sixth house has been quiet for a while and you probably have noticed a lull in your energy and health routines as Venus is now active in this house. Be kind to your body, now is a good time for a purification or cleanses. Clear your mind as you move though this month towards the New Moon on Sept. 20th. This New Moon is going to feel more like a Full Moon to you. The energy will be high and the New Moon in Virgo will have you rethinking a current relationship and with Mars sitting opposite Neptune things could get very heated. It will all settle down as the Sun moves into Libra bringing balance and with the union of Mars and Venus on August 30th , love will be in the air.
And let us see,
What are you dreaming to be?
New Moon Leo: Charge forward with the creativity from your heart. Take the opportunities to grow in areas that server you best. Love like there is no tomorrow!
Leo New Moon, August 21, 2017
New Moons are a time to set intentions for the next Lunar Cycle; however, this New Moon is very special as we in the USA will experience a total Solar Eclipse. This time the Universe is asking you to set new intentions for life. Whoa!! Heavy stuff, right?
This is eclipse season and you will have other opportunities to shift gears. However, with this New Moon in Leo we will see that it is important to focus on a life path that is in sync with our creative powers and emotional needs. As the Sun moves across the sky getting closer to the shadow of our Moon, there will be an emotional connection with what you want in life and where your passions begin. This may require big changes, which I do not recommend until after Mercury turns direct on Sept. 5th – 7th; but the changes are necessary. This could simply be understanding your current situation and learning to adjust your direction so that coping isn’t all you are doing. It should be a big turning point for changing perception and becoming comfortable with who you are and where you are going.
Take your time in making big decisions; let them sit with you for a while and FEEL the outcome. Create your dream through imagination and joy, learn what will or will not work for you. The energy is intense as Mars is sitting directly on the other side of the Sun pushing his energy and expecting you to move things along. This is not a bad thing as with great change come great stress and anxiety. Mars is telling you to jump and that no decision is the wrong one.
The Sun is glowing in Leo and is sending the positive energy of self-love. This is giving you an opportunity to truly connect with your inner self. As the Moon shadows the sun, and crosses in its path it will shine the life light on your inner self exposing your inner emotions. This is a time to share without guilt or shame. It is a time that some of you will experience an understanding of your own emotional intentions. That is not always apparent. Sometime you feel something that you can’t quite understand where it is coming from. Well, this would be the time to have your clarity.
Pluto, Venus, and Jupiter are all working to make you dive deep into your soul and connect with your inner truth. These are not always comfortable feelings and taking action can be quite shaking. So hold on it’s a wild ride, but you can handle it.
“Stay in the light that shines deep within your heart; let Leo guide you to become the King of your own destiny.”
Full Moon Aquarius: The phase of the Full Moon is a time for rest and reflection, and is especially important with Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse. The partial Lunar Eclipse will be, by far, the most impressive aspect for today. Hold on to your emotions because it will be a bumpy ride and an experience that you will not understand right away. Stay grounded and process your feelings before letting them out for others to see.
Today’s Aquarian Full Moon will have a profound effect on your emotional well-being and the power to shift your reality in big ways. The Moons reflection will be partially hidden from view and so will your emotions. This is not only affecting your emotional connection to others but to yourself as well. As the Leo Sun sits opposite the Aquarian Moon, they are having a conversation about your relationships. On one hand our Leo Sun highlights the relationship between the individual, meaning you; Do you love yourself? Do you take care of yourself? Are you living your life? and this Full Moon will make these questions a lot harder to answer. This is because our Aquarian Moon wants you to disconnect from self and connect with the outside world the “collective”. How are others? How is your relationship with others? How do you serve others?….. Do you see the conundrum?
So reality for you can be blurry and hard to see or pin point how you feel or what direction you should go at this time. Changing direction or making decisions will be difficult because your emotional attachment will want to be outward while your heart is looking inward. The Aquarian shadows come to light, at this time, adding more detachment from the flow of your own emotions and the realities of life. It is a time where you may see people whom you haven’t seen in a long time or those that are close to you will suddenly disappear, leaving you to question yourself and your relationships or connection with others. Aquarian people like to be part of the pack; however, the Leo Sun is striving for you to make it on your own. Stay true to yourself and do not make other people’s issues yours. The energy is not here to support that right now and can cause great problems for you in the future. Your focus is to be moving within your own light today. Disconnection from your heart; over-attachment holding on to the ideal life or perception of life are all part of this energy.
This is a nearing of the end that will bring new beginning as projects come to a close with respect to community, friendships and the giving of our own gifts to others. It is a time to reflect on your attachment to social activities as they may not be aligned with your hearts ambition. However, this is not an easy process with the energy being partially hidden as I stated earlier the Earth moves in the way of the light from our Leo Sun (Heart) and our emotional Aquarius Moon putting a fog over the ocean making it hard to see the rocks and waves.
The fog will lift, I promise, as a beautiful trine appears in the afternoon between the Moon and Jupiter you will feel the expansion begin to happen and tension will release. Remember to stay hopeful and look for the hidden meanings behind events that take place. Let the light of Jupiter guide you and spend time in contemplation. Wait for a clear view and calmer seas before making any sudden moves. Open and free your mind to break free of those things that no longer serve you emotionally and let your light shine in your own unique way. Be an individual that contributes to the collective without compromising your own dreams. Don’t be rude or distasteful; however, strive for a clear path. This takes courage and belief in yourself. I believe in you…
“Stay in the light that shines deep within your heart; let Leo guide you to become the King of your own destiny.”
Aquarius Full Moon, Intellectual, Community, and Detachment are all the part of this energy.

August 2017, Aries 21 March – 20 April…
As summer is coming to an end, its sticky hot and probably a little annoying by now. You are looking forward to cooler weather and a change of scenery. Unfortunately, you will need to wait a little bit longer for these two things to happen but it will come soon. As always dear Aries you like to be prepared. The Leo Sun is in your 5th house of creativity and daily routines. It is also the house Leo is most comfortable and therefore the light will shine brighter for you during this time. In the beginning of the Leo Sun things can be a little annoying as it always is this time of year. Shifting from the outdoor community fun in the sun back to routine and turning inward. This energy is all about self… Ruled by the Sun and ruler of the heart. As the Sun skips through your 5th house you will feel bursts of energy, a booster shot of Vitamin “C” running through you. Look to channel that energy internally and prepare for your ultimate goals. This is a positive energy that will help you get through the mundane responsibilities that are necessary but not very fun. It will last through August 7th when the Lunar Eclipse shifts to a more emotional state of mind. The Full Moon is in Aquarius and will be full of dreamy thought and emotions. You have a chance to take a step forward in manifesting a different reality for yourself. Remember this month is about you, however the Full Moon, Lunar Eclipse, will make it easier to see the inner connection with those around you without being emotional about the outcomes. Often times you want others to feel what you feel and it’s just not possible. This energy will be an enlightening experience that lets you look at the creative magic that sets us all apart from each other yet still we are all connected through love. It is also a good time to take a step back on all the planning you have been doing. There are several squares this month that contribute to a mood of self-preservation through creative outlets. August 2nd and 3rd will be good for communicating beliefs to others in order to form deeper connections all while staying true to yourself. Look for change is social status or possibly just your perception of this status. By mid-month the fires have been extinguished accept for a few embers that may still be smoldering in the back ground. Let them burn as they will eventually go out too. If you choose to blow wind on them then the flames will get out of hand and cause anxiety and stress, something you definitely want to avoid this month. Your goal is to achieve balance in one on one relationships and look forward to a change of attitude towards them. August 12th is another date that will bring a different energy for you as Mercury goes retrograde. Anxieties will be high as communications may become a little more complicated, take a deep breath as this is only temporary. Making lists of “to dos” and following them will help decrease the intensity of this action. Mars is working for you in the creative department so finding solutions or taking action will not be an issue. Mars is the great Warrior and will give you the energy to get through the day to day activities with fire and gusto. Take time to develop a healthy routine that includes the mind and heart combination. The New Moon in Leo on August 21 is also a Solar Eclipse and is an excellent time for making promises to yourself for the next coming month. Your mind set will be filled with positive, loving energy and will give you the openness to manifest your desires. Dreamy ideas will flood your thoughts of all the finer things life has to offer and will be shadowed by your emotional needs. It is a great time to put pen to paper and create your perfect world.
August 2017, Taurus 21 April – 21 May…
Look who is improving their living situation this month. Setting foundations for your future is something you strive to do on a regular basis, however this does not mean you are one to skimp on comfort. The Sun is resting in your 4th house of roots, home and family. As the Sun Moved into Leo a shift happens that takes the focus from nurturing others to nurturing self. So how does that work when the energy is about family? Well it’s time to take care of yourself so you can comfortably provide for your family. Mars is the driving force here and pushing you to your limits. Your journey in life has to be what you make it. Your career choice has to be your own, especially at this time. This is a good time to re-evaluate how your career affects your home life and what is the longevity. Planning ahead is different than setting a path and this month is about setting your path. The Adventurous Moon is urging you to take action and find your truth in what you want and it will be most apparent at the Lunar Eclipse, Aquarius Full Moon on August 7th when you are asked to reveal your emotional attachments to your family and deal with past issues. Your mood will lighten as you move into the middle of the month around the 12th and 13th. Mercury goes retrograde causing minor glitches that will cause you to throw your hands in the air and make fun of the situations. Finding solutions will become a self-fulfilling challenge, one that you are not afraid to accept. Money will not be your primary goal at this time as it is a time for doing things for you with a strong need to be the King of your own castle. As you move through the month and closer to the New Moon, Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 21st you will feel the need to create close bonds with siblings and loved ones. This will definitely be on a more personal level, however not compromising your privacy. The Full Moon Leo is one of that requires specific emotional needs that will seem to others as selfish and uncompromising. This is in fact true for you Taurus, you are learning to set boundaries, teaching others how to treat you; without this, you have a potential to create unhealthy relationships that will not last. Keeping your intentions pure and communicating them to your loved one is most important at this time. It’s probably best that you concentrate on yourself this month and make no commitments. Setting your foundation in life is the best way to create a stable environment for your family’s future. You will feel these affects through the end of the month and possibly through the remainder of 2017. Look for a change in the way you approach your business or work, especially at the beginning of this month and look forward to the adventures spirit that wants to explore all your options. Emotionally there could be conflict as these adventures are not conducive to the stability that you so desperately require. Dreaming with your partner is an outlet that can help you get through this restless feeling with-out making drastic changes to your lifestyle. Take some time for yourself so you can make clear decisions. Misunderstanding your own emotional needs could result in tension that will resonate throughout the month.
August 2017, Gemini 22 May – 21 June…
WOW! This Leo Sun is really powerful for you Gemini. The Sun and Mars are working hard in your 3rd house where you normally feel most comfortable. This is not true for you right now, however all is not lost. Use all this nervous energy to accomplish big things. Look for unexpected resources that will benefit you monetarily around August 3rd. Venus and the Moon are sitting across from each other having a conversation. Venus is giving you the love and positive energy in your house of resources sending your emotional moon signals to trust your gut. This won’t be easy as some lessons are hard to swallow and require a deeper understanding of yourself. This is what Saturn is requesting from you right now. It is important to mention that Leo Sun energy this month is specifically asking you to do what is best for you. Dear Gemini, you have a heart of gold, but others have a hard time seeing through it and this is the month that you don’t want to try and convince them. Instead it is about you understanding who you are and embracing your own self-love. The beginning of this month will have you struggling to find balance but this will get better through-out the month as you move closer to the Full Moon on August 7. The Full Moon is in Aquarius and is a partial Lunar Eclipse, hiding a little of your emotional energy and decreasing the power of the Sun. Using this decrease of energy to meditate and analyse how you work within relationships both internal and external. This process can be challenging; however, you have Jupiter looking out for your best interest and is pushing you to search for you own truth. Use this energy to truly ask yourself what you want. The energy is right on August 7th and once the Full Moon passes your Suns fire will set off the rocket to have you flying high on the possibilities. Towards the middle of the month you will want to take this new-found freedom and attitude out for a date and show it off to the world. Maybe you just want to impress your loved one with a night out on the town. Treat someone to something special without caring about consequences or just doing something nice for a neighbor in need. Now you may be saying “I already do that” and you are correct, however this time it is with a new outlook directed at how you feel with no worries about how others will react to it. There is a difference! You have ability to impress others without even knowing it. Communicating your needs clearly is key to setting a foundation for any quest you are pursuing this month. Opportunities can be offered to you that will compromise your ethics and beliefs at the New Moon on August 21. This is a Leo New Moon and Solar Eclipse, powerful and shady. New Moons are a time to start new and fresh beginnings for this Lunar Cycle. This one will be a little different for you as this energy is forceful. The Sun’s rays are will be beaming directly on your communications and how you are perceived. You will shine bigger than life at this time so be careful of ego but at the same time the Moon is pushing you to take a deeper look at your truth, having you question your foundation and your beliefs. This will be an uncovering action as the Sun will have little influence hidden for the site barring your Soul directly to Earth. Changes are in the near future, your direction in life will have a direct impact on where you are when the sun shines again on the powerful Leo ego. August 30th brings relief and strength for a such an enlightening month.
August 2017, Cancer 22 June – 23 July…
Go! Go! Go! The power of this month is to set up your sails so you can move through the ocean of life with as little effort as possible. Let the wind blow and you are ready to go. Your Sun is in your 2nd house filling it with the hot air needed to fill the balloon and get ready to watch it fly. You may ask yourself; a balloon flying aimlessly through the air seems to have no direction. However, the direction irrelevant for you this month. Others will see your carefree attitude as an aimless path with no purpose. Don’t worry you are not one to normally care anyway and with your self-esteem as high as it is right now others will actually be attracted to your light that is shining and want to know what your secret. It will be a time to take advantage of this great feeling and spread it like wild flowers. Your Birthday month may have ended but the events that are taking place right now will be a gift that you won’t receive until the end of the year, but will last a long time after. It’s like building a legacy…. Shopping or spending money on yourself is quite rewarding because you are worth it. Just be aware of how much you are spending, it will be so easy to get out of hand with the Leo Sun and Mars giving you that extra encouragement. This month is about pampering yourself and it is definitely a good time to toot your own horn. Communication is important as you well know, however it is not something that comes easy. You will have support from others but you need to be clear on what you require. You will not get resistance; you deserve to be treated special. Your adventurous spirit becomes connect with emotional needs to find a deeper connection that leads to nirvana. Taking steps to care for our health will be an emotional time and may require an extra boost from Saturn to insure you take care of your heart this month. The Full Moon on August 7th will have a great impact of your ability to disconnect emotionally in order to take advantage of an opportunity that will be presented to you. The Aquarius Full Moon is also a partial Lunar Eclipse that will shadow the light from your emotional connections long enough for you to make decisions based on your ambitions without considerations of others. This could shift your personal relationship and cause issue; however, this month is about nurturing yourself and what you need. Without this time, you will never have the energy that you require for the rest of the year as you nurture others. Leading into the dreaded Mercury Retrograde happening on the 12th. You have a great attitude and Spirit that is directed towards your needs. The remainder of the month will find you becoming the detective. Researching alternative life styles or career paths that will require additional schooling. It is most important to you at this time to build a solid foundation for your future and the future of your family. Balance between the stability and life is where you spend the rest of this month through to the Solar Eclipse and New Moon on Aug. 21. These two are working together in Leo shining on your path. Again, the focus will be on connecting what you love to do with how you obtain the resources you need to achieve your goals. This will continue through the rest of the month.
August 2017, Leo 24 July – 23 August…
Well it’s about time! Happy Birthday! What a great time for you sweet Leo. You are King of the jungle this month for sure as the Sun sits in your 1st house of self and you are one that embraces the opportunity to celebrate “self”. The beginning of the transit into Leo can be a difficult one as you channel your energy inward and taking care of you as opposed to the Cancer energy that requires nurturing others. This month will feel comfortable here, however flexibility will not be your strong suite. Others may find it difficult to relate to you as Mars has a warrior stance on your ego. An unexpected trip is in your future at the beginning of the month that will allow for some relaxation and fun. It will be action packed so be sure to bring you adventurous Spirit. Keep your communications open and let the offers come flooding in as you evaluate your resources. This is a great time for a Spiritual retreat to learning to connect Mind, Body, Spirit. There is a strong need to fuse together your emotional needs to financial obligations making your career all you dreamed it could be without compromising your beliefs. Using your creative mind and allowing your intuition to take over will serve you well this month. Reinventing how you approach business and getting rid of old out dated ideas in order to gain new clients. Your dreams are big and you have the power to make things happen, however this month you may need to slow it down a bit and discover yourself. The Lunar Eclipse, Full Moon on Aug. 7th will help as the reinvention of your self-image starts to change. It may take a while for other to catch up with your ideas, especially those who may be directly affected by this change. The important thing to remember is communication. If you are working alone then go for it, things only change when the time is right and now being the time to go for it. The best course of action is to follow your instincts, they don’t usually fail you and out of all the Zodiac signs you are the best at trusting your own judgement. Moving into mid-month as Mercury sets its course retrograde you may start to feel anxious about your choices. Because Mercury works so hard during the year he requires more breaks than any other Planet. For you this is a well-received break as you need some time for your head to stop spinning. Virgo is helping you to analyze and prepare. Do not move forward with any new ideas or adventures until you have all the facts and preferably when Mercury goes direct again in September. Setting your intentions at the New Moon/Solar Eclipse on August 21st will be most important for you, dear Leo. Balance, harmony and connection between your Spiritual and Intellectual partnerships is what will drive the remainder of the year and it all begins here. This is right up your ally. You rule the heart and you want nothing more than to have harmony in whatever you do. The Leo New Moon/Mars is the perfect time to make it happen. Write down your dreams, look for the signs and motivate yourself to follow your heart. This is about digging deep to truly understand your truth. Developing healthy business relationships will be a challenge as it will be difficult to find the same passion for your cause from other people. It will be important to understand that everyone will not be on the same path and it will require time to develop the trust required. Understand that all the planning, analyzing and mapping will be the best way to uncover your full potential and present the new you in the end.
August 2017, Virgo 24 August – 23 September…
There is no other time then now to look forward to an ending. Your journey over the past year has played out like a movie and now it is time for the final episode. Successes, failures, drama and health have all been a part of it. Your Sun is now resting in your 12th house of endings. But don’t be so sad dear Virgo, it is really about resting and taking inventory. You enjoy both, don’t you. 😊 Mars is pushing the energy level to high but you have little energy left and this can cause feeling of unease and nervousness. Try and channel that energy elsewhere. Spiritual teachings, yoga or mediation. Your Sun has now made the journey through all twelve houses and is in need of some down time. The uneasy feeling that started when the Sun first entered Leo last month will continue through August 7th when the Full Moon in Aquarius adds more emotional disconnection. This Full Moon is also a partial Lunar Eclipse that will add to your lack of ambition. Ok don’t get so down. This happens to everyone as some point in during their yearly Sun cycle. It is a necessity, you must rest, and let the Universe take the wheel at some point or else you will burn out. This is your month to do that. Do not fight it as that will only cause anxiety and discomfort. Understanding what is behind the scenes will help you go with the flow a little easier. Researching is another great way to pass the time yet feel productive as you will notice it will be hard to actually accomplish anything this month. Health issues have been coming up lately and the possibility of holistic treatment will be on your mind. Do the research and explore your options, with the placement of your Moon and the help from Sagittarius you will be able to keep an open mind while being logical in your choices. The 12th house is about subconsciousness and intuition it would be wise to stay in tune with what is going on around you, be the observer. You will learn so much from this activity, write down thoughts and what you see. The need to evaluate your childhood will be strong or a feeling of being emotionally connected to your Mother is very high and can be an emotional time. The energy will shift a bit when you reach the middle of the month with Mercury going retrograde. Frustration will become more apparent as the normal issues of Mercury retrograde like electronic issues, travel plans being delayed, and miscommunication. Outburst are possible and more than likely to occur, impatience with other especially those of authority. To avoid this, you must communicate clearly with no room for misunderstanding. Follow up conversations with emails and double and triple check travel plans. So, if you have important speaking engagements or interview it will be best to plan those prior to August 13th or after Mercury goes direct. This is especially important for you, Virgo. The Solar Eclipse and Leo New Moon on August 21st will start your rebirth process and you will begin to wake up. The fiery energy will not be in full force until the Sun transitions into your 1st house on August 23rd. It is then that the veil will lift and your eyes will see more clearly. Use the energy of the Virgo Sun to invigorate your mood and reclaim yourself.
August 2017, Libra 24 September – 23 October…
Social status will be quite important in your world this month at your flirty Leo Sun hangs out in your 11th house. It may not be as pleasant as it would normally be your you. Self-esteem will be a focal point for this month and what better way to gain confidence in yourself then to seek communities where you feel valued and connected. As the Sun is in Leo and the fire of Mars is pushing you to see yourself as important in the lives of those around you. Connecting to your inner self is a way to help you realize your full potential. It will help your perspective in how you present yourself to others. Balancing your mind will be an important feature that is required in order to avoid bad habits and destructive behavior. Jupiter is waiting in your first house to guide you on this journey. Knowing who you are is so important and this is the time to take those steps needed to find your truth. August 7th brings the Full Moon in Aquarius and will allow you to disconnect from your own self-image and open your mind to how others see you. The Lunar Eclipse, although less impressive, will further shadow the apparent emotional stresses you are under. This can be a great time to take a breath. On a lighter note, it is a time for meeting up with friends and family that will distract you from the heaviness you may be feeling. Your purpose this month is to feel the love from those you treasure and nurture and care for them. If you are requiring a deeper relationship with a sibling than you must communicate these feelings. Let your heart be open and receptive to the feelings of those around you. By mid-month you will have choices to make regarding your family, changes are required in personal relationships to support your needs. It will be important to make those needs known prior to Mercury retrograde and Aug. 12th. The mood will begin to shift as your social schedule is filled with people you respect and will give you a sense of freedom from the stresses earlier in the month. Don’t hang on every word and take criticism with a grain of salt, however, embrace praises and allow them to fill your Soul. When the Leo New Moon and Solar Eclipse appears on August 21st, you will have the clarity to set intentions that best suit you and provide a stable environment to grow. Spending time alone is not always a good thing for you, however at this time it will provide the quietness that you require to take in all you have witnessed this month. Learning to love yourself is hard but with the Leo Sun, Moon and Mars all working in your 11th house it should not be hard to actually feel the love not only from yourself but from all those you have been around. Accepting this is what the Leo energy is all about. Feelings of overwhelming joy can cause suspicions so be sure that you back it up with facts. Balance your feelings with what is real to you and bring your ambition to meet them by the end of the month as your sun moves into your 12th house of endings.
August 2017, Scorpio 24 October – 22 November…
What are you trying to accomplish dear Scorpio? Your career choices will be challenged this as the Leo Sun is strategically positioned in your 10th house of social status and career. You have laid the ground work for you future and now is the time to put it to the test. You may find more work is needed and that is very frustrating, tedious and draining. But it must be done! Your work ethics should never be challenged however, your approach or outlook may be the issue. Your communication is very business oriented and will be misunderstood for face value. Learning to be more emotionally connect just may be the key to unlocking the treasures life has to offer. For now, the struggle will be with your daily activities that require a little care and there will be many! In order to get through these tasks, it will be necessary to develop processes and procedures. Something you thought you had, but maybe it is time to re-evaluate how you are doing business. Work on being open minded to the possibilities that exist outside of what you have been doing or have learned throughout the years. Times have changed and so should you. August 7th the Lunar Eclipse and Full Moon in Aquarius adds a little adventure to your situation. Look for a career change or opportunity that will require you to travel or allow for more freedom. The Eclipse will prove to shadow the full emotional effect of your decision and reveal your true feelings about the opportunities that are presented to you. It will be important for you to look at all the fine print. You may want to hold off on signing any contracts or commit to a start date if the offer comes at the same time as Mercury Retrograde. If you must engage in negotiations ask for a trial period through Sept. 4th when Mercury returns to its forward motion. Emotional decisions are in play this month and must be dealt with as Saturn is requiring action. You are feeling that the drifter that walks alone, when in fact you have a network of people who are willing to help. Learning to trust your instinct is key for this month. As you move towards the Leo New Moon and Solar Eclipse on August 21st the focus will be working on your own perception of self-worth. There is a fine line between boosting and being confident and you are always trying not to cross those lines. Put that on the back burner as boosting is just what the Leo Sun, Moon and Mars is telling you to work on. It is time to balance your truth with your purpose and learning how to put the two together. Jupiter’s energy is requiring you to balance these two and will provide the answer if you seek to truly solve the problem. This makes it necessary to release your negative image and embrace a new outlook that puts you at the center. You are going to feel much better after the 23rd and the Sun moves into a more outward look at your situation. The bigger picture will come to light and opportunities will become apparent.
August 2017, Sagittarius 23 November – 21 December…
Making your grand appearance this month will be no struggle for you as the Leo Sun explodes in your 9th house. This is home for you and with all the self-confidence that it brings is almost unbearable. Now, I said almost… Lovely Sagittarius, you already shine in life and make no mistake you like to have fun. The Leo and Mars energy will give you just what you are looking for and you will need to search no further. The ninth house is about higher learning and adventure so look to take a trip some place that has character and history. Both of which you absolutely love. Pushing your boundaries is a favorite pass time and this month will be no different. You will have extra energy that will require an outlet, something new and different. Because it is Leo that is driving this adventurous train it must be something you want to do for you. Unusual circumstances will arise that will also get your creative juices flowing so gear up for the challenge. The Full Moon in Aquarius on August 7th will add to the excitement. The Lunar Eclipse adds a bit of work but it is nothing you can’t handle. The mood will be a learning experience, one that will require thought and concentration. Business is good but has become boring and tiresome, maybe it is time for a field trip or a change in position. A promotion may be in order and August 13th is a good time to put your feelers out. Use your charm and grace to get your point across as you have a favorable aspect in your house of status. Mercury turns retrograde but this isn’t an issue with you Sagittarians because rarely does anything get under your skin. That being said your morals and ethics will be challenged at the Leo New Moon on August 21st. This New Moon is also a full Solar Eclipse and will shadow hide ambitions from your site. This creates only an emotional choice that can feel as though something is not right. Do your homework and be sure that you are not compromising your truth. No other Sign will feel the negative effects of a shady deal like you will. Your whole being is about taking the higher road, never having to worry about your decisions. After the 23rd the energy will shift to your social status so it is imperative that you are honest with your business deals. People will want to call you out and you need to be sure you are ready.
August 2017, Capricorn 22 December – 20 January…
There is no time like today to see the love you receive from all of your most faithful followers. As the Leo Sun sways through your 8th house of support from others, sex and rejuvenation you will know just how fortunate you have it. Accepting these gifts and enjoying the time is what this month is expected to produce. You are always working and keeping the tribe going and now it is time for your appreciation ceremony. You are not one to be shy about needing a break or taking time for yourself. Others may view that as weakness however it is a necessity to keep your strength up for your tasks. This is different because you are not usually on the receiving end of recognition and praise. But this month will be different and you should embrace it all. On the other hand, you have Mars setting fire to such wonderful events that could provide a deeper passion that is on the edge of explosion. Either way you will need to keep a level head to much bliss can cause blindness so I hear… This is a favorable month for balance and justice, although you will be put to the test around August 7th as the Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse appears in Aquarius. You may find yourself in a battle defending your honor which is purely based on miscommunication. Remember that the energy is high and the disconnection that Aquarius provides may not allow you to see the whole picture. It will be necessary for you to rely on your own resources to get through this time. The Lunar Eclipse provides a shadow of emotions that is caused by the disruption of energy between the Sun and Moon from Earth. This causes even further disconnect from rational thought. To add to the confusion will be Mercury Retrograde Aug 12th. Brace yourself for this unfortunate turn of events, however you will be surrounded by plenty of supporting people that will get you through the brunt of the storm. Your saving grace…. Uranus is lurking in the distance in the house of creativity and is always looking for optimism around every corner. This is where you find inspiration for your creative endeavors and you should keep your Spirits high so you can recognize them. Communication with a foreign land, traveling for work or a guest speaker for a cause are all possibilities. Whatever your work is this month will require the help from others, a high self-esteem and a great deal of emotional stamina. But you are up for the task. On August 21st, you will witness a Solar Eclipse and New Moon in Leo. This will greet you with a need to seek out your shadow in order to understand your own perception and motives. You will need to understand the importance of a pure heart as Leo works his magic. This is not meant to be easy but it will be rewarding as your Sun moves into the light of the 9th house at the end of the month. Your new-found perspective and love will find a beautiful home in truth and vitality.
August 2017, Aquarius 21 January – 19 February…
Sun in the 7th house of personal one on one relationships. As you can see there is already a conflict as this month is about nurturing yourself and how do you do that when you Sun is shining in the relationship, marriage house of compromise and sharing. Well, don’t worry there is room for both. The energy that both the Sun and Mars is providing is one that can handle anything. Your personal relationships are extremely important to you; however, you hold no emotional attachment which is something not many people can do. Therefore, taking care of yourself is easily achievable within in a relationship because boundaries are set. If these boundaries are not set then there can be quite a bit of action for you this month. Emotionally you are connecting with groups and activities outside the home that can cause friction and require some intervention. Jupiter is in favor and can provide you with the understanding you need to communicate your intentions to your partner clearly. Misunderstandings with business associates are also a point of friction, so it will be important for you to find a balance between work and home. Creating boundaries is what this month is about for you. The Lunar Eclipse and Full Moon in Aquarius on August 7th will force you to take care of your own needs as the Sun is sitting directly across from the Moon allowing the energy to intensify. Even though there will be a shadow hiding your emotions the message will be clear. Work on bettering your communications with your partner and don’t over extend yourself causing stress and anxiety. Things aren’t what they seam and nothing should be taken too seriously as you move through to mid-month. Mercury starts its move backwards this month and will add to the miscommunication and confusion. You are the most optimistic sign in the Universe and can usually see the brighter side of things pretty easily, keep that image, because you will need to draw from those strengths. You will be interested in the what makes your partner tick and delving into the deepest part of their Soul. They may not want you there, but it is something that you are unable to control. Through this you are looking to know how your relationship will move forward and where the Love comes from. Be careful not to put them on the spot causing them to feel like an experiment of yours even though life is experimental in your opinion and you have your own ideas of what it is all about remember that the feeling is probably not mutual for most people and you could get a reaction you are not expecting. The New Moon on the August 21st has a kind of nostalgic feeling for you. No matter if you are in a relationship or not you will feel lonely and set apart from your loved one. Don’t let this get you down though, you have plenty of things going on to distract you. When you Sun finally move in to Virgo you will be able to analyze your data and have the epiphany you were looking for.
August 2017, Pisces 20 February – 20 March…
Let’s get that cardio going. Last month was spent on creativity and social activities this month is back to the work out. Leo Sun and Mars are actively charging your sixth house of health and fitness along with daily routine and service. So, what are you waiting for get up and do it. Leo rules the heart so be sure to add cardio and healthy eating habits that is good for your heart. But don’t go over board or you will burn out by the end of the month. The Leo energy does have a tendency to go all out “go big or go home”. Communications will be strong at the beginning of the month so it is a great time to write down you plan and organize. Mercury will be in the 7th house of one on one relationships and can step of the conversation. Balancing your routine with Spiritual exercise is what you will need to feed that Jupiter Spirit. You are feeling an emotional connection with your work on a social level and now it is time to connect personally. This month will be about feeding your own personal goals. Leo is ruled by the Sun and loves to see his light shine and will bring on that high energy you will need to get back on track. The Full Moon in Aquarius on August 7th has you dreamy eyed about the future. Your energy will be less active so don’t push yourself. Let your actions do the work for you, try not to let the work be your action. Feeling good about what you do always increases your energy. Feel your mental and emotional well-being lift up and release; let go of tension and apprehensions. The best way to push start that is through positive affirmations that should be posted on your refrigerator. You are going to need the extra push during this time through to mid-month. August 13th and the start of Mercury retrograde could prove to be a positive experience if handle with care, while this is normally a dreaded time for unexpected complication it is actually a positive force in your chart this month. It is a great time to be able to speak candidly to those around you by using plain simple English. This is a time for unrevealed topics that others shy away from. This energy will continue through the New Moon and Solar Eclipse on August 21st. This amazing event is one for the record books and you won’t want to miss it. If you can’t see it in person then you must track it on the internet as it will be a spectacular site. You are one to feel the most connected to cosmic event such as this although it may spin a web over your psychic abilities it will help you keep grounded long enough to appreciate how small we are in comparison to the Universe. It will be a reminder of your connection with “self” and the progress and achievement that you have made. It’s a time for setting intentions, but also a time for reflecting. This will help you determine what direction you are going and what you are truly passionate about. In the end your Mind, Body and Spirit will connect once again and you will feel refreshed and ready to go. Put yourself on autopilot for the remainder of the month and spend your time in the garden. As the Sun moves into Virgo on the 23rd you will have a chance to evaluate the past couple of months and see what is working and what needs to be improved upon.
And let us see,
What are you dreaming to be?

“Set your intentions high for this New Moon and let it cover everything Leo”
A New Moon sits along-side the Sun and signifies the point of new beginnings. The Sun is what drives you in life while the Moon is your emotional connection in life. The Leo energy between the Sun and Moon will have you focusing on creativity, self-confidence and pride adding in the emotional connection for your own well-being. While there is always a chance of going too far, this combo you should have no problem finding the balance and making change.
Leo energy is so creative and wants nothing more than what is best for you. It is not a time to think or work on others, let that be for another day. Today you must concentrate on yourself. As the Sun and Moon work side-by-side there is no better energy to combine purpose and passion as you plan for the future month. Ideas should be plenty, however if you find yourself stuck then you should spend a little time by yourself and meditation.
The Sun is the brightest luminary in our sky, it is the King of the heavenly bodies and is the giver of life. Leo is ruled by the Sun so there is no wonder that when they are working together you have the power to shine above all the rest.
In Astrology, the Sun symbolizes our direct will or purpose and if we do not spend time each year nurturing our own directives and drive then our purpose cannot be realized. There is no shame in looking out for your own best interest; just know that everyone will be doing the same. Watch your temperament when you do not get what you wish. It is not personal, it is just someone else looking out for themselves. You can find another way, don’t worry.
Leo and Sun Mythology: The beginning of time the Sun was a “hero” born of Mother Earth as she possessed the four elements that comprised life – air, earth, fire and water, thus we call him Sun “SON”.
The Greeks believe the Sun is Apollo, the Greek god of light and truth, the perfect balance of masculine and feminine. Apollo lived in the spot light, the most Greek of all the gods, he wanted a shrine that would also put him at the center of the world; therefore, he choose Delphi. After slaying the serpent that ruled the area ], Apollo built his shrine. He saw what he wanted and did what he needed to do to get it. Later the laws that were handed down from Delphi were delivered by Oracles but were credited to Apollo. The lesson given was “Nothing in Excess” and “Know Thyself”. The Oracle tells mortals to keep things in balance by avoiding the excess of being too willful and overly confident, or arrogance and conceit will follow.
Larger than life is how Leo likes to play and today will be no different. Dream big, because today is the day it has the power to come true.
And let’s just see,
What are you dreaming to be?

What should you be doing during a Capricorn Full Moon?
The Full Moon usually symbolizes a time for stillness, allowing the universe to work the energy set forth from your New Moon intentions for the remainder of the moon cycle. However, this Capricorn Full Moon is an active one and is all business. The Capricorn energy ex-spelling from the brightness of the big beautiful Moon has a can-do attitude and is providing an uneasy feeling. It will make it necessary for you to take responsibility for your emotional connections and feelings within groups, co-workers and organizations with whom you are connected. This energy is one of a collective conscious and is sitting in the house of careers, ambitions and life direction. The dismantling of out dated systems with an active ability to rebuild new ones is typical of the energy provided by the conjunction between the Capricorn Moon and Pluto. This is where the personal meets the public and/or political aspects of your life, making it necessary to involve others into your plan. It will take the masses to move the mountain and there is no time like now to get started.
In the tribe of the Universe the Capricorn is the one that gets the job done and has the stamina to keep up with all the details for the collective group. This will require big changes as well as re-invention. (Pluto 1 degree of the Moon) As these two energies work together you will feel the energy that has the power to breakdown major corporations, or just a singular way of thinking. On a personal note however, this energy causes you to question those you trust and break ties that may feel damaging to you. The Pluto/Capricorn Full Moon is sitting opposite a charged Sun and Mars in Cancer lighting up this powerful couple. Insecurities and fears put relationships at risk of power struggles and suspicion. We all know what this type of energy can do on a big scale, but what does that mean for you in your daily lives? This is a time when you may feel that working on you own is best, due to the mistrust you are feeling. Nothing can be further from the truth. No matter how much you want to isolate yourself, this is a time to get involved. Involving yourself in organizations and groups that you are passionate about, will test your ability to respond to personal and collective events with maturity and open heart. “Making a difference” The square to Jupiter in Libra reminds us that taking responsibility of yourselves does not mean you have to do it all on your own. It is critical to work with others for a successful outcome to whatever you are working on and evolution is more effective and efficient with support. The activation of a loose but potent grand cross at this time is a crossroads and choice point in your life and for those around you.
This Capricorn Full Moon makes it a perfect time to release and grieve that which needs to be left behind in order to take brave steps in a new direction. All this power struggle and work can drain your energy, but like all Capricorns will tell you; time for yourself and relaxation is an ingredient you must never substitute or alleviate from the recipe for success. The Capricorn way!
“The greatest darkness constellates the most impassioned energy of creativity” Andrew Harvey
