August 2023 Planetary Message

Happy August from Kim and the planets. August 2023 Planetary Message for Feminine Leadership.

 

From the Moon: 

 

August is a Blue Moon month which means I’m full twice this month. I’m creating extreme tension pulling between your hearts and your beliefs at the beginning and end of the month. Your heart will choose between you and your spirit versus looking at others for guidance and connection. You have the chance to dream and embrace your authentic self to live your life freely in perfect alignment with your soul or take time worrying about others, what their concerns will be or reactions are to what you do or say. It’s always your choice. Choose wisely. 

 

From Venus: 

 

It’s time. Now is the time to be fully feminine. BE feminine leadership. Do you know what this means? Go into your heart. Your heart knows. Connect with its guidance. Breathe in its peace. Follow its wisdom. What are you waiting for? What else do I need to do to invite into your fullest self? 

When I’m in fire, I want to burn brightly, creatively and boldly. Right now, I’m calling you to go inside of yourself. I’m shining the mirror so you see your heart and soul, not your face or body, but your soul. Can you see it? I can, from here, and you shine as brightly as the Sun. Know yourself and know your worth. It’s time. 

 

From Mercury: 

 

I love to play games and I get to again in a few weeks when I move backward in Virgo. I get to pull at you in physical ways when you question everything about your work and day-to-day happenings. I’m going to be adding to Venus and I love to play with her. She doesn’t mind (well, she does, but I don’t care) when I add to her energy and muddle with your thoughts. It’s great because your feelings get involved too. I wonder why you don’t understand my intentions. I’m so misunderstood, so now I get company when you join my club. I thrive on the company. 

 

Let’s play together.  My riddles are worth solving. My new riddle – what do you get when you mix mind games with heart walls and lack of will? Right – look around you. This is what you get. How do you like it? Will you let us help you? We’re trying. Look up. Look inside. There are no riddles when you look inside and create your life around what you see there. You can be so brilliant – all of you. Right now, though, I get to play with Virgo and Venus. 

 

August Happenings: 

 

Dates: 

 

The Full Moons are on the 1st and 30th. The New Moon is on the 16th

Venus retrograde July 22nd – September 3rd. Mercury retrograde at August 23rd – September 15th

Uranus stations retrograde on August 28th

 

There are beautiful days when the planets conspire to support you. Those are on the 1st, 16th and 25th, coinciding with two of the lunar phases. There’s richness and opportunity for you. You can

 

– take advantage of opportunities. 

– have influence, charm and openings for success. 

– have the energy to fuel your direction, guide your decisions and allow your passions to be fulfilled. 

– also have the ability to clear pathways. 

 

There are days that are going to feel more difficult, August 9th, 22nd, 28th. These are the times when you’re getting pushed and pressed to take it easy, not push forward. Take time to fully appreciate yourself, your relationships and your unique ways of showing up in your life. 

 

Star Power: 

 

This month is a wonderful time for feminine leadership; to lead from your inner knowing, to lead from your heart, to lead from that instinctual remembrance of who you are. The key is going to be to not succumb to the delusion, the misperception, the miscommunication and the misinterpretation that the mind likes to explore. 

 

The mind really wants to take a back seat and wants to be relieved if it’s forward position, because it knows it’s not doing that well. Once you give it permission to do that, then the heart can come forth, so you can hear its whispers. Then, your soul through your intuition, can become your guide.

 

This month is filled with opportunity. The opportunity is for you to be able to live in your body, in your heart, in your intuitive knowing, guided by your soul versus being in your mind with the games that your mind continues to play. 

 

xo, Kim (and planets)

August 2023: 12 Ways to Exploit the Impending Colossal Dose of Tough Love

When Venus enters her retrograde station, it’s the start of a 40-day dose of tough love. She hits you hard in the areas you desire most – success, love and money. She turns your focus inward and shines a great big light into YOU, so you see into every nook and cranny.

With all of your focus on YOU, she wreaks havoc with your ability to attain your desires. Success, love, money seem to leave you.

Damn.

Why does Venus insist on doing this?

She expects you to know exactly what your value is without reflection from the outside world.

Let me say this again, “She expects you to know your value no matter how others respond or DON’T respond.”

What does this look like?

  • You wrote a great post and no one reads it.
  • You give a wonderful speech to tepid clapping.
  • You set up 10 sales calls and 4 are no shows and the other 6 don’t buy.
  • You go out with a new guy and feel you really connected and he doesn’t call.
  • You tell a joke and no one gets it.
  • You send 30 invitations to a fun soiree you’re hosting and most everyone has other plans.

Venus makes you look at yourself. And look at yourself.

And look at yourself without 

– relief. 

– feedback. 

– validation.

Venus wants you to believe deeply and unwaveringly that you’re successful, lovable and valuable.

You are

– successful – even though your efforts are not getting you the expected results. 

– lovable – even though friends and family seem to have forgotten how great you are.

– valuable – even though no one is buying from you. 

Talk about trusting yourself. Bam. 💥

This is a big deal.

Without any input from others, Venus wants you to know the answers to the following:

Success:
  • Who is the authentic YOU?
  • What makes you unique?
  • How do you show up as your true self in every situation?
  • Why do you wish to fulfill your soul purpose?
  • What’s your definition of success?
  • How does your definition of success satisfy your real desires?
Love:
  • In what ways do you love to be loved?
  • Where does love actually rank in your priorities?
  • How often do you express self-love?
  • What are your favorite ways of showing love to others?
  • Why do you desire certain things and not others?
  • Where is the joy and pleasure in your life?
  • Who makes you happy?
Money:
  • Why is money important to you?
  • Is there reciprocity in your life?
  • Are you generous with others?
  • Who supports your financial wellbeing?
  • How do you value yourself?
  • In what ways to you attract money?
  • Do you receive fully and easily?
  • How can you stand unwavering in your commitment, regardless of what’s happening around you?

Work with Venus in her retrograde station. Once you do, you’ll come out the other side of the retrograde able to ensure your success, love and money. Remember, she’s overing you a dose of tough love.

Venus (Rx) – 5-pointed Star

Venus has the most elegant star cycle that creates a flower.

Occurring in just five parts of the Zodiac, Venus retrogrades traces out a five pointed star – the pentagram or pentacle (the five pointed star inside a circle). This symbol is a potent Venus image.

Within your lifetime, you’ll only see Venus retrograde in 5 of the 12 zodiac signs as she stations retrograde every 18 months for 40 days and will return to same zodiac sign every 8 years. 

Venus Retrograde (Rx)

Details: Venus retrograde – July 22nd – September 3rd @ Leo 28 – 12°

Venus retrograde pulls all of the outward connections and turns them inward. It’s like having a multi-faceted mirror reflecting only your image for weeks on end.

People constantly want to make sure they’re in lock-step with everyone else. If you’re the same, then it must be right. More sameness is better. You may say may like diversity, yet strive for homogeneity. Let’s take a look:

  • Since everyone’s applying to a ton of colleges, we should too.
  • Most kids do a lot of activities, so we need to make sure ours are also fully scheduled.
  • If they just took a trip to Europe, we plan that (or something better) for our next vacation.
  • Overall, the time to settle down is X, to get married is Y and to have children is Z.
  • Home ownership is for everyone – oh and the bigger, the better.

This pursuit of sameness is insane.

People are also constantly comparing themselves to others to make sure they measure up. Because if they have or do something you don’t, then there must be something wrong with you.

  • “Why do they have it so easy?”
  • “She’s always out with friends. She has so much more fun than me.”
  • “Why do sales come so easily to him?”
  • “Look at their pictures. Their teenagers seem to want to be with them. Why don’t ours?”
  • “They’re always travelling. They have the best life.”
  • “We’re in the same business, why do her products sell better than mine?”

On and on and on…if you deem yourself ahead, you bask in your achievements. If you decide you’re behind, you fret, rationalize and judge your position. In relation to what, by the way?

People make life a relentless and depressing competition. With thoughts and conversations returning again and again to your perceptions of other’s lives.

You compare.

You compete.

Only to find yourself wanting.

That’s the key. When you constantly use others as a measuring stick, you come up less than. It’s inevitable when you think about it.

Venus Rx Dose of Tough Love: Dates & Signs

Venus takes her ‘backward spin’ once again after moving forward since the beginning of 2022. Over the last few years, Venus has been retrograde 3 times and she’s asked you:

July 2023 – Leo/fire: To be authentically you – without inference from family, society or cultural conditioning; previous dates July/August 2015 & 2007

December 2021 – Capricorn/earth: To know your value as a leader; December 2013 & 2005 

May 2020 – Gemini/air: To have satisfying conversations with loved ones; May 2012 & 2004

October 2018 – Scorpio/water: To love your yourself deeply and wholly; October 2010 & 2002

April 2017 – Aries/fire: To love how you show up in the world; March 2009 & 2001

Do’s & Don’ts with Venus Retrograde

In 2023, from July 22 – September 3rd, while Venus is retrograde, take the time to review the areas of success, love and money. Venus rules beauty and design too.

Things you do and buy during Venus retrograde may be ones you regret. “What was I thinking?” or “How could I have said that?” or “Why did I think he/she was my perfect mate?” are the questions once Venus stations direct. 

Do’s with Venus Rx
  • Take extra care with anything new regarding success, love, money (and beauty)
  • Make plans to beautify yourself, your home or office (plans only)
  • Review your relationships
  • Assess your finances, including investments, budgets and projections
  • Declutter and give away that you no longer love or use
  • Practice self-care
  • Notice who shows up from your past
  • Dive deeply into your feelings
  • Get healing
  • Journal on reflective questions about what brings you pleasure
  • Internalize your creative pursuits to evoke more depth and feeling
  • Begin the writing project you’ve been putting off for so long
Don’ts with Venus Rx
  • Get married
  • Start a new long-term relationship
  • Get a tattoo or cosmetic surgery
  • Buy expensive items – clothes, jewelry, etc
  • Launch a new book, offer or product
  • Make big investments
  • Buy large ticket items (cars, appliances, homes)
  • Begin big home improvement projects
  • Redesign large areas of office or home
  • Spend frivolously
  • Come out with a new image or style
  • Begin a PR campaign
Support Tools:
  1. Regarding success, here’s a list of tips for your business during Venus retrograde period:
  • It’s the perfect time for client appreciation and customer loyalty programs. 
  • It’s a great time to act like the leader you are and respond to your customers and following by giving them stability, security and solid footing. 
  • It’s a wonderful time for human connection – 1:1 calls, extra TLC and nurturing of your prospects. 
  • It’s amazing for team building or retreats.
  • It’s perfect for photo or brand shoots (if you know the photographer already). 
  • It’s excellent for those in the health, beauty, fitness industries. 
  • For everyone else, it’s creativity time, so write the book, organize your social content or do outreach and record your sessions for the Podcast

Also, for the business-minded among you, it’s great for planning, strategy, diving deeply into optimizing and/or solidifying your core business. 

  1. Regarding love, rose quartz, rhodochrosite and rhodonite are the best self-love crystals. Each asks you something different. Rose quartz loves you unconditionally, so only asks you to connect with her. Rhodochrosite wants you to remember times when you’ve felt loved and cherished and to wrap yourself in that energy. Rhodonite wants you to heal those aspects of yourself you don’t particularly appreciate or value.
  2. Regarding money, if you haven’t joined our 12-month Star Boost support program, you’ll want to as there many bonuses (yes, a few money ones too!) Our on-demand webinar Become Recession Proof is also included with its 39-page e-book.

I also channeled a message from the Divine Feminine and Masculine.  You can check it out here.

As always, wishing you joy,

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.
