Hey there sailor! Does it feel like you just came off a pirate ship last month? In June we may have had some chaos in the ‘sea of life’, up’s and down’s, tidal waves, canon balls, and some of us may feel like we had an eye patch on going blindly into the unknown. Well, take a deep breath because August is here to calm us into these long summer nights. August will be about rebuilding your ship and to rebuild we need to use pieces from the past and add new pieces to keep us strong. Get rid of things that no longer serve you, just let go of negative people, clean your closet and kick your bad habits. If you have been feeling stuck, spaced-out, anxious or even lost on where to start, this month will give us a gentle nudge to blow us in the right direction. Meditating could be a great outlet to recharge and download the answers from that bird on your shoulder. This is all thanks to the rare Full Blue Moon in Aquarius that closed out June. The energy of the moon effects us 3 days before and after, so by now you should see or start to feel so sort of inspiration inside. Ayyyeee Captain!
Love! Love? Love!? Venus the planet of love and values starts it’s retrograde on July 25th to September 6th 2015. During this time, we revaluate what and who we value. This is not the time to start a new relationship, get married or make great financial leaps. This is a perfect moment to rethink our relationships and what we want and need from friends, family, and our loved ones. This is also a great time to create a budget and set financial plans. Venus also rules beauty and when in retrograde this is not a time to spontaneously try a new hair cut or shop online at midnight or redecorate your house. Love where you are at and know when the timing is right after September 6th you can take that leap, but for now get creative and visualize.
Good night moon. This month we have a New Moon on Leo on August 14thand a Full Moon on the 29th in Pisces. By mid month the New Moon in a fire sign will be a great time to get us feeling strong about plans and acts. We will feel like a true captain ready to set sail a ship of loyalty and devotion. Take pride in how far you have come and in how far you will go.
The Full Moon on the 29th will be a bohemian artist’s dream of fairytale and fantasy. As the Pisces fish swim deep in our subconscious we may be more prone to day dream and visualize that of our wildest dreams. Great time for art, music and poetry. So get creative and get lost in the moment of daily fantasy. Maybe your ship sails to Neverland?
