Well here we are in August– how fast this year is moving. The numerology aspect of this month is “9” global month in a “1” global year. This means that many things will come to completion or ending so new things– bigger, brighter new things, new ways of living,,, maybe even unforeseen (but not necessarily unwelcome) new things can begin. We will be living these new things in September ( a “1” global month in a “1” global year). It’s like, you have to leave high school to go on to college, or finish one relationship to go on to another. Something ends so something new can begin. It is a time where we will separate the wheat from the chaff (normally what we do in the season of the fall). We will decide to let things go. We will decide to make changes that are more in alignment with who we are now and where we are at now. All that needs to complete will do so. All that needs to go will do so. All that needs to change will do so. These changes will be internal (as in your thoughts and emotions and beliefs of what is or is not possible) as well as external (as in our jobs, relationships, finances, health). Maybe you have been working on changing things. Maybe there is some aspect of your life giving you trouble, causing you pain or not serving you anymore. August is where this all completes and the “pre dawn” of your new beginning- begins! This will show up more towards the end of the month- after the Full Solar Eclipse on the 21st. August and September will be bookend months to the changes that are happening within and out for us.
We have quite a few astrological aspects this month. First, Mercury, the planet of communication goes retrograde 8/12/17 to 9/5/17. This particular retro cycle, while causing the usual technology, travel, communication delays/troubles, will be powerful and influential for reevaluating, reviewing, renewing, replenishing, revisiting, revising, restructuring, rehearsing, redoing our love lives and finances. That’s what retrogrades do– make us RE- hash! The Virgo influence of this cycle is going to make us extremely thorough and thought out with this process. This time period will be setting the groundwork for profound, soul guided fulfilling relationships particularly in our love lives and financial life (we have a relationship to money and finance). This time period will bring up whatever is in our shadow or unconscious around money and love. Sure it could be our unconscious fears and programming, our pain bodies relating to these areas BUT… in the sub conscious also lies the Soul Mind, Soul Self, Soul Thinking, Soul Guidance, Soul Destiny just waiting to become more conscious so it has more power. When we become more conscious of what is in the sub conscious we can either change it, release it or EMPOWER IT. This is what I am banking on this month for most of us as most of the people reading this alert have been working on empowering their Soul/Destiny for quite some time now. When we acknowledge our Soul, when we stand in and claim our Soul, it takes the reins and creates/manifests/attracts our true partner, our true way of being in relationship with love, our true financial reality, our true peace filled, soul filled, easy, stable, secure, grounded love life and financial reality. Make no mistake whatever is in the way of that ( also in the subconscious) will show up– but once we work through it–we will move closer or actually live in the highest and truest experiences especially pertaining to love and finance. How exciting. Let the soul lead the way!
Adding to the fun is the Lunar Eclipse (full moon) in Aquarius on 8/7/17 and the Total Solar Eclipse Leo (new moon) on 8/21/17. During eclipses there is a disruption and reset of energy. It is a great time to clear and cleanse limiting thoughts, beliefs, habits, patterns and energy from your life and system. Lunar eclipses deal with emotion, while the Solar have more to do with thoughts/thinking and mental energy. On top of that, the 8/21 New Moon Solar Eclipse is a “Black Moon. ” I will discuss more on these aspects in the weekly energy alerts for August.
Here is an excerpt I received from Sarah Varcas ( www.astro-awakenings.co.uk) about the Black Moon August 2017–
“A black moon is a particularly powerful new moon which augurs a significant new phase. We can use its energy to prepare for shifts in our inner and outer worlds so powerful they may change the very course of our life. Each black moon signals the beginning of a new cycle which lasts until the next black moon, two and a half to three years later, so these are powerful moments in time which can markedly influence the coming years. It is therefore wise to use their energy well! Once the black moon arrives, a shift in the fabric of the universe is underway, often manifesting as a new life theme that develops and matures across the coming two to three years. Our attention may shift to new interests and/or occupations. We may meet new people or drift from old ones. What once seemed so important to our well-being loses its appeal and we find deep inner shifts reflected in changes we once could never have contemplated. This is no ordinary new moon but the birth of a whole new phase in our life, which will unfold in ways that can be hard to predict at first, but which, in retrospect, makes perfect sense when reviewed from a vantage point of garnered wisdom in a year or so’s time. Then we can see where we were, where we are and where we’re heading in relation to the themes of the defining black moon.”
It will be very interesting to see what happens on the political fronts (worldwide) as Total Solar Eclipses are historically known to create major shake ups and changes in the political arena of life. According to Master Astrologer Jack Hopkins– President Trump was born under a Leo Moon Solar Eclipse– oh boy!
August is going to be a very powerful time for change and implementing our Soul’s desires and destinies. It may get bumpy I am not gonna lie. It may feel uncertain at times. As always the best way to deal with that is to stay grounded to the body and to Earth, stay grounded to your SELF (Soul), stay centered and true to who you are and to your integrity and stay connected to the Divinity that guides you. In that way, you will be fine. A good energy balancing and clearing may also be in order.
Again, lots of groundwork and setting new foundations is implementing this July/August. A lot of adjustments to impending new realities is settling now. Most of this is internal preparation. Movement and forward motion do not occur until September (then get read for a blast of energy!!!). It is not that you will be idle in August but it’s more like packing the car for the road trip as opposed to hitting the road for the road trip.
Okay so that’s it for now. I will have more in the weekly energy alerts in every Monday morning email. If you need me– I am here.
With Love and Peace
