August 2022: Top 7 Tips to Make August the Best It Can Be for You and Your Family

Overall

I wish I could say August is a free and easy month.

I can’t. I would be lying.

BUT, I can say knowing how to ride the wave is key to making the month work for you. There’s goodness here, you just have to know how to get it.

AND, we’ve got so much in store for you inside this forecast:

  1. TOP Tips
  2. LIVE Events
  3. Workshops
  4. Support Tools
  5. Star Knowing
  6. Resources
  7. Intuitive Type Forecasts

Supportive Intuitive Tools

Let’s look first at some tips from the oracle cards, crystals, flower essences and animal spirits and then, of course, let’s look at the stars. ✨

Oracle card: #34 – Merge

Merge, instead of release. August isn’t about releasing and letting go unless that’s your vibe. If it is, go for it. However, if letting go is hard for you, merging is your best bet.  This way, you have an active way to deal with your issue(s).

TOP Tip #1: How do you merge?  

 ~~~ WORKSHOP ANNOUNCEMENT ~~~

We’re going to go through this in our Power Up group on August 3 at 1:00 pm ET. Don’t miss it –bring a paper and pen and the biggest thing that irks you right now…let’s change it from an issue to an asset. 😘

Crystal: Aqua Aura Quartz

Aqua Aura quartz stimulates channeling and spiritual communication. This stone allows freedom, activates the chakras and releases negativity. This crystal can enhance other stone’s healing powers.

This crystal is a multitasker, amplifier and powerful healer as it meets the energy at the appropriate level in every situation.

TOP Tip #2: Let Aqua Aura call your intentions to you.

Grab some of this delicious crystal and charge it up with your favorite intention and then let it be the beacon for you for the rest of the month. You can get it here super-fast or if you’re not in a rush, get it here.

Flower essence: Holly

This flower essence helps you let go of over-control, judgment and jealousy. Holly lessens assertiveness and anger.  It also helps you follow your own path, increases goodwill and opens your heart to have a generous spirit. 

TOP Tip #3: Lighten up!

If you’re feeling angry or judgmental, grab some Holly here. Put 3 drops in water a few times a day and watch yourself melt in the best possible way.

Animal: White Raven

White raven is pure magic and helps you stay connected to the spiritual realm. With raven, you’re confident, knowledgeable and strong. Call on raven when you want to recapture the magic of life or want to reclaim innocence and joy.

STAR FORECAST

 Big Star Events:

  • Uranus retrograde 8/24/22 – 1/22/23 to join Jupiter, Saturn, Chiron, Neptune and Pluto (more information below)
  • Mars is center stage this month (think lots of energy or aggravation – you decide)

Week 1: Stay Steady

Dates: August 1 – 7

The stars are just plain bonkers this week. Seriously, first it’s this and then it’s that. They’ve got you feeling all sexy and groovy, waiting for a windfall and then bam, they’ve got you questioning everything, not knowing what’s going on. I usually don’t say, “Kick the can down the road, but kick the can down the road.”

TOP TIP #4: Do 2 fun things this week.

Yup – just fun and not just one fun thing, but two.

Week 2: Balanced and focused

Dates: August 8 – 14

Energies ramp up. It’s like the slow simmer suddenly becomes a boil and you can’t stand the heat. But, you actually can. You’re used to it by now. Don’t let others get under your skin. Ignore them. This isn’t the week to smooth things or work it out with others. Everyone is testy and argumentative. They’re looking for a fight. Don’t give it to them. Instead…

TOP TIP #5:  Use the energy to make something happen for YOU.

You can leverage all of the force in the ‘air’ to succeed at something that’s really important to you. Get it done.

Full Moon: A New Way

Details: Sun in Leo & Moon in Aquarius @ 19° on August 11th @ 9:36 pm ET

This Full Moon is a story of 2 triangles. The first triangle brings energy, fortitude and forbearance – in other words, you can get through anything. The second triangle beckons the entry into the way of living and leading.  Combine the energies of both to create your life the way you want it.

~~~ FOR MEMBERS ONLY ~~~

We’re going to do a massive “Get ALL the Things” in our Empowerment Membership on August 12th at 10:30 am ET.

Week 3: Solving Problems

Dates: August 15 – 21

Now is the time to solve problems when you lean into your experience, instincts and inner knowing. Your mind is still running a tad amuck (and gets more so as the week progresses), BUT you can definitely put it to work. Use that overactive mind of yours to solve problems. This is the week to work things out, bring things to a close, wrap it up.

TOP TIP #6:  Fix your #1 issue – right now.

~~~ WORKSHOP ANNOUNCEMENT ~~~

Grab a pen and paper and let’s get to work in our Power Up group on Tuesday, August 16th @ 12:30 pm ET.

Big Event: Uranus Retrograde 8/24/22 – 1/22/23

Uranus rules natural disasters, technology, inventions, electricity, scientific breakthroughs, dictators and rebellions. He gets even more unstable and unpredictable when he’s retrograde, so be watchful. Personally, you get to choose yourself – freely without any intervention from others. When you embrace your authenticity, you take steps to gain independence and freedom. This is a time to express your true desires and to explore new ways of doing things.

~~~ LIVE EVENT ANNOUNCEMENT ~~~

Join our LIVE on our FB biz page to talk all things NEW on August 24th at 11:00 am ET. (Psst…maybe we can get Emily to channel another amazing message for us…I’ll keep you posted.😉)

Week 4: Stay committed 

Dates: August 22 – 28

The week starts off great and then gets dicey at the end. You start off feeling fulfilled and satisfied as if you can get anyone to do anything for you and then reality gives you a boost to get things done mid-week, but brings doubt and uncertainty with it. All of a sudden those feelings of “I’ve got this” turn into “Wait, what? Um…maybe, I don’t know…”

The mid-week shout out is a big Happy Birthday Virgos! 🎉

TOP TIP #7:  Commit to your end game. 

Forget everything that’s going on around you right now. Seriously, push it aside. Stay focused on what you want to accomplish. That’s the only thing that matters – your end game. Where do you want to be at the end of the year? What do you want to have done? Make strides at the beginning of the week and take time off at the end, if you have to, in order to keep yourself in the game.

New Moon: Tests of character

Details: Sun & Moon in Virgo at 4° on August 27th @ 4:17 am ET

This New Moon should be titled, ‘The New Moon of the Push and Pull’ as it tests you to the max by pushing you to your limits while pulling back the curtain of everything you’ve done or haven’t done. It’s also the ‘What have you done for me lately?’ Moon. It harkens back to 2021 with the past-future star clangs coming together once again (and lasting until October BTW).

Ask yourself 3 questions:

  1. What do I REALLY care about – deeply and unfailingly?
  2. How can I shift my thoughts to support me?
  3. What’s actually real?

~~~ FOR MEMBERS ONLY ~~~

We’ve got you. We’ll be going through all of this in great detail with practical and ritual support on Friday, August 26th at 10:30 am ET. Not a member? Become one by clicking here.

Intuitive Types Forecasts:

Don’t know your type? Take the quiz at https://www.kimwoods.com/knowyourlifequiz/ and then come back and check out how the month affects you.

Wise Strategist – You actually loathe the first 3 weeks of the month – it’s so fiery and undulating, you don’t know how to find your footing. You may be predisposed to say, “Forget this month, I’m going to take an extended vacation.” That may be your best bet if you can’t review your goals and set a path to follow by taking one step at a time. When you chunk things down into smaller segments and follow the energies detailed above, you can get a ton done this month – A TON. By the time the Sun enters Virgo on the 23rd, you feel at home once again. But, these first 3 weeks have a lot to offer you – they can get you out of your mind and into your heart and that’s going to be key in 2023.

Intuitive Visionary – You don’t mind the push/pull waviness of the month, it keeps things interesting for you. Go with it to get things done and to let things go as you see fit. Keep in mind that others really hate this energy and don’t know how to deal, so help them get through this month. Provide support in the ways that bring people closer into your world. Make sure you have your best interests at heart and aren’t just willy-nilly giving away free advice. Make a concerted effort to lead your prospects and follow through with your plans. By the end of the month, you’ll have a more robust client list.

Collaborative Explorer – It’s going to be so easy to forget yourself this month as everyone needs something from you right now. They’re flailing with the energetic push and pulls and you’re just the person who can help them figure everything out. Be this person for yourself and those who have make a commitment with you. Let everyone else either commit to working with your properly or finding others to help them. If you try to help everyone, you’ll lose sight of your own goals and end the month absolutely exhausted. This is the month you can hone your discernment skills – saying yes when it’s right for you and no when it’s not.

Ruling Warrior – Admit it – you love the fire in the stars and nothing puts you into high gear like a little confrontation (when you come out the winner). BUT, this month, the win is going to be short-lived. Stay focused on you – ignore everyone else, unless it’s a romantic partner and you’re grooving in the love vibe. Otherwise, do the other thing you love to do – succeed. Focus on your long-term goals and make headway on each and every one of them. If a goal involves others, just do your part for now. The time will come to get others involved, it’s just not now.

Creative Superstar – These fiery energies are good for your creative juices and Venus is front and center for most of the month, adding her style and flair to all of your designs. Yet, there’s enough doubt and uncertainty about where you fit into the world that has you spinning. Stake your claim at the beginning of the month by making a plan (yes, setting a schedule for each week) and sticking to it. Then, commit to following your schedule. Your schedule and only your schedule, will help you avoid getting swept up by the forces trying to knock you off center. If you do this, August is going to be a great month for you.

Loving Alchemist – Move into your power, deepen it and stay there. From this power place, allow yourself to go with the flow of energies and let others circle around you –without intention, control maneuvers or staking your claim in any way. This is intoxicating to you, so will not be easy. BUT let the magic of the prosperity season invite you to stake your claim on your abundance. In what ways are you already incredibly abundant and in what ways would you like to be more so? Make a list, create a plan and put all of your energies into making yourself more abundant. August is the month for you when you revolve around your own unique abundance.

Bottom Line:

August is a MONTH. Yet, it holds so much for you. Follow these guide posts and you’ll find yourself much better off at the end of the month than at the beginning. Otherwise, take a break, holiday or vacation.

This is going to be a bumpy month – fun and in the flow or filled with aggravation and angst. As always, it’s up to you.


Thank you for reading and sharing with family and friends.

Seriously, it would be great for you to share. Everyone benefits.

As always, wishing you joy,

August 2021: Patient Opportunity

Will you have the fortitude and patience to make 2021 a great year for you?   

 


Overall:

The 2021 forecast is still true. Here’s the synopsis of August.

We’re distracted and jumpy as we want to get going and the energies are holding us back. This makes us cranky and uncertain. Additionally, technological or mechanical snafus crop up and they have nothing to do with Mercury. When we take our time, act in patience and rely on our intuition, we make powerful leaps in our growth. This is a wonderful moment for us if we can harness our impatience. 

Big Star Events:

  • Lion Gate & Leo New Moon on August 8th
  • Uranus retrograde on August 19th

Week 1: Fits & Starts

August rolls around after a few complicating weeks and adds frustration with the ‘let’s go and hold on’ energy. The fits and starts have you questioning all of your decisions, pathway forward, timing and let’s not even talk about relationships! It’s a relationship soup of reviewing the past, yearning for change, yet holding off due to uncertainty of your next steps. You feel isolated and depleted, so want to dive deeply into the abyss. This is fast-moving so either tread lightly and don’t allow the melancholy to suck you in deeper or seek healing to explore fully and get to the other side. 

There’s also possibility for new and exciting change (that may or may not feel comfortable). That’s okay, you’re getting use to constant change. Say YES and move forward, taking the positive and discarding the rest. If you’re looking for new love or want renewed vigor in your current love life, this week provides all you need. Make yourself available.   

If you desire slowing down and basking in the bliss of the moment, do it. This is an excellent week to take a breather to rejuvenate and restore yourself. 

New Moon: Lion Gate

Details: August 8 New Moon Leo 16° @9:50 pm ET

 

On August 8th every year, the fixed star Sirius illuminates the head of the constellation of Leo, known as the LION GATE. Many portent of stellar channeling energy and messages, giving you the ability to maximize creativity and healing. Let’s step into this with open minds and hearts and see where it takes us. 

The 2021 energy coincides with the New Moon, so add manifestation to the mix. Due to Uranus, there’s the possibility of new beginnings, yet unexpected and jarring changes in the collective may foster uncertainty. Additionally, deception and confusion reign, so fall into your intuitive knowing to illuminate your pathway. 

Out in the world, let’s keep an eye on the progress of awakening to truth. 

Week 2: Adjustments

Be mindful of how you’re gas-lighting yourself with negative self-talk, over rationalization or staying a victim through comparison and judgment. Move into generosity while being true to you and your ideals. This isn’t going to be easy this week. There are a number of cosmic forces making you face things you’d rather not see and having you make many tiny adjustments. It’s minor movement when you’re open, but it’s like death by 1,000 cuts if you don’t remain open to learning and change. 

A positive force comes through on the 11th adding depth and intensity, but also wealth and luxury. If it’s within your means, splurge on something just for you – whether it’s a new course for growth, a long-term investment or a new haircut – all are supported right now.

Week 3: Freedom

There’s an intense energy that urges you to take the long view, do deep research and make moderate plans against the push to be overly optimistic. The Sun enters Gemini to join Mercury and Venus, so your mind goes into overdrive. Your heart is already flirtatious and light, so it’s not a good barometer for keeping you centered and focused on your goals. There’s a slipperiness to the energies this week that contradicts the underlying pull of a longer, lasting tempo. Center, ground, center, ground is the mantra this week. 

You’re choosing between yourself and others and can’t determine which is more important. Generosity is an excellent attribute as long as you ensure you’re taking care of yourself and putting YOU in the center of your life. Your heart calms and opens to love while your mind turns to serious thought about long-term commitments. It’s a good time to strategize and plan the next 5 months. 

Uranus moves in retrograde motion starting on August 19th until January 18, 2022. He joins Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune and Pluto in retrograde motion. From viral and radical perspectives, these forces are restraining each for the moment. Let’s lean into the positive aspects of that. Personally, Uranus wants you to gain freedom to live your life, so allow possibility, opportunity and ease to be your mantras internally to see positive external change. 

There’s fortune and good luck here when you let go of control and roll with the changes.   

Full Moon: Yippee!!

DetailsAugust 22 Full Moon Leo & Aquarius 29° @8:02 am ET

Hooray for a Full Moon cycle with positive, supportive energy. You feel, look and sound great. You’re on top of the world. It’s been too long since you’ve felt this good. You want to gather with friends, entertain and basically, enjoy life to the fullest. You may have just gotten good news or it’s right around the corner and you can sense it. You yearn for change instead of it being thrust upon you. This is what you’ve been preparing for these last many months. 

Celebrate yourself and all of your achievements.

Week 4: Deepening

The Full Moon launches a desire to burst forth. You have renewed energy, sex appeal and strong urges for everything you’ve been yearning. Your dreams may come true when you use your energy and effort to bring them to fruition. Start new projects, say YES to new adventures and basically, do all the things you’ve been awaiting.  

The Sun in Virgo adds the push to get things done. You’ll want to clean all of your closets, organize your calendar and complete all of those administrative tasks. Depending on the weather, you may just tackle everything on your list. Stay on track with your intentions set at the beginning of year, adjusted only for adjustments you’ve made internally. This is not the time to make long-term plans or strategize with others. It’s a time to put your head down and focus on what’s in front of you. 

Bottom Line: Lion & the Maiden

August starts as a lion and ends as a maiden and this year, that’s the precise energy for each part of the month. As the months progresses, be patient, stay on track and get things done – in that exact order. 

Supportive Intuitive Tools

Tarot: Nurturing – 3 of Worlds

The Tarot speaks giving you a nudge to nurture your creations. This is a time of support, patience and care. Be vigilant with your creative side to continue to spur growth, even when you desire to stop due to lack of movement or value expression for your creations. Be a guiding hand to nurture your ‘babies’ to fruition.  

Crystal: Fuchsite

Fuchsite deals with issues of servitude from the past and present as it teaches self-worth.  It helps with  relationship issues and keeps you out of savoir and rescuer mode. This crystal resolves feelings of ‘not being good enough’. This stone also channels information about health and wellbeing. 

It’s most often found with ruby and is called Ruby Fuchsite. The ruby adds power and depth to the fuchsite, making it a rich combination for courage, love and power.  It’s a stone of strength.

Flower essence: Olive

The Bach flower essence of olive connects with your inner strength and keeps the flow of manifestation going. It’s part of the throat chakra essences, so it’s enlivening. Olive brings joy, purification and potential. It’s also abundantly nourishing. 

Supportive Practical Tips

Quick tip:

     Take a breath and go for a walk if someone or something is driving you crazy. (Your patience will be rewarded.) 

Visualizations:

     Get out your 2021 intentions, dust them off and add energy to those themes or goals you haven’t furthered yet this year. Envision support and opportunities presenting to you. 

     Remember your big dreams and do a heart link with each one to charge them. 

     Imagine and create – whatever your heart desires. Bach White Chestnut is perfect to quiet your mind. Take 3 drops 3 times a day in water and feel your mind settle.

_________

How to use this forecast: I’ve abbreviated the writing of my monthly forecasts while enhancing their practical uses. Here are my recommendations.

Quickly at the start of each month:

  1. Peruse the forecast to see what jumps out at you and make a note of the date(s) on your calendar.
  2. Go through the weekly themes and compare it to what’s on your own schedule. Make slight adjustments if there are particularly startling events on days you have major plans.
  3. Look over the business tips for the two parts of the month and see what activities to incorporate for you and your staff or clients based on the energies.
  4. Find intuitive tools and practical tips to incorporate into your month.

      Each week:

  1. Look over the weekly themes and drill down on those jiving with what you have going on in your week.
  2. Include a different, lighter or deeper approach depending upon the weekly theme.
  3. For each lunar cycle, use the natural power of the Moon to ramp up energy for success or to release and overcome obstacles.
  4. At the end of the month, take a quick glance over the month to see what works and what doesn’t to make adjustments for the upcoming one.

Thank you for reading and sharing with family and friends.  

As always, wishing you joy,
