August 2023 Newsletter

Wow! Did you see how big the Aquarius Full Moon is right now? It arrived on the 1st of August, and we are set for another on the 31st of August, a “Blue Moon” in the sign of Pisces. Both Full Moons are Supermoons meaning that are closer to the Earth, they shine brighter, and we will feel their effects more strongly. 

Having two Super Moons in one month will result in an intense pull to release, detox, let go or walk away from all that no longer resonates with your soul. By the end of August, you will have some cleared space, physically, emotionally and spiritually.

The Aquarius Full Moon is a portal for healing and is represented by the Star in Tarot. So, we will likely feel strong healing energy vibrations this month, especially in matters related to the heart, as Venus, the planet of love is in retrograde until September 4. Heartbreaks, disappointment, and painful emotions may rise to the surface, and you may feel extra emotional. But it will pass. 

Being an air sign, Aquarius concentrates on what’s happening in our heads. Thoughts may be swirling round and round in the mind, and you may find yourself going back and forth. However, it is an important time to pause and listen to our thoughts. 

Is there anything that you are dissatisfied with in your life right now? Are you questioning something – a relationship, job or lifestyle? If it is not right, it may be time to let go. 

If you feel bored, dissatisfied or disappointed with how things have turned out it may be time to move on. If an opportunity is on offer now and you are hesitating, trust your gut feelings and wait until something better comes. 

However, if you are reminiscing and romancing about the past, it is time to move on. Living in the past keeps you stuck. Nothing now is the same as it was back then. It may be time to get out of your comfort zone and be adventurous. It is time for a fresh start. Leo’s positive vibrations will have you feeling confident, passionate and inspired. This month brings new beginnings, ideas, goals, dreams and opportunities.  Be daring and courageous, because you will be going in a new direction. and starting a new adventure.

August is a wonderful time to connect with nature, enjoy family and friends, and appreciate the abundance in your life. Ground yourself by spending time in nature and allowing time for rest, play and connection with family and friends. Nurture yourself, your loved ones and what you value most in life.

Friends add to the fullness of life. Nothing is more therapeutic than having a catch-up, having a good laugh with a trusted friend or a sympathetic shoulder to cry on. If you have been shutting people out of your life, try to open up a bit more. Leo is famous for being loyal and trustworthy, so let go and trust. 

Like Hestia, the Queen of Pentacles is a goddess of the house and home and is talented in interior design, cooking, music, craft and gardening. The 2nd of August marks Lammas (a celebration of the first harvest in the northern hemisphere. Here in the southern hemisphere, Imbolc celebrates the beginning of Spring. So, what better time to declutter, spring clean, celebrate Imbolc or Lammas and bring harmony, balance and tranquillity into your home?
