Hello August 2013Hello August and the playful royal and courageous Leo! I’m sure you have already felt the difference in energy after the intense soul searching and transformative energy of July. The energy created by the Grand Sextile on July 29th will continue into August. Often obstacles that may have presented themselves in the previous 13/4 cycle (July), or that required foundational work first will now fall into place, bringing freedom and personal rewards.

August is the 8th month of the year. The number 8 is about power, manifestation and money. We are in a 14/5 Universal Month (8+2+0+1+3=14). In the Chaldean system, the 14 represents the Scribe. If you are a writer or a want-a-be writer, now it the time to get started. It is also the “Media Number” because it leans towards magnetic communication with the public through TV, the internet, movies. Expect some shifts in power this month and because of the media number in play they may happen very publicly.

14 reduces to 5 is all about taking risks, enjoying more freedom, being creative and having fun! 5 represents our 5 senses. The number 5 is in the middle of numbers 1 through 9. This symbolizes pivot point from looking into the past, assessing where you are presently and where you want to go in the future. If we don’t like what we are faced with when we stand on our 5 pivotal point, then simply just change what you are doing. If you keep on doing the same, you will always get the same results. If you want something new then do, think, feel something new. It really is as simple as that. You may be forced to make quick decisions this month.

Astrologically, the Sun is in Leo, it’s home sign, until August 22. Leo teaches you how to be courageous, fearless and confident. This is a gift from the heavens to help you live more passionately and creatively. Leo represents love as does the number 5 (in the Pythagorean Planes of Expression) so express your love to yourself as well as others.

The new Moon in Leo is a 14 degrees. The number 6 is about love, kindness, birth and regeneration and has been activated all year with your 6 Universal Year (2+0+1+3=6).

Full Moon August 2013The Full Moon (Full Sturgeon Moon) happens August 20, 2013 at 9:45 pm EDT with the Moon in Aquarius and the Sun in Leo. Amazingly the Full Moon in July, (July, 22, 2013) the Moon was in Aquarius and the Sun in Leo… as this is the same full moon energetics for August… this is your lucky chance to get things right!

The energy from the New Moon up to the Full Moon is gradually building in strength and intensity; thus the New Moon is a great time to set your intentions, write down goals or begin new projects for the forthcoming cycle. Full Moon energy is powerful as its resonance reaches a peak; thus is the time to consciously connect with/analyze your previous New Moon goals.

From the Full Moon to the New Moon, the energy is gradually decreasing in strength and intensity, thus is a time to release and let go of any areas in your life that no longer serve your higher purpose. The Full Moon it is perfect time to connect in ceremony (personal or group), light a candle and release that which no longer serves you.

You are a spiritual being with a Life Purpose which carries a responsibility to CREATE. All month, you will experience an inner urge for creativity as well as more freedom in your relationships, career, finances, and lifestyle. In order now to feel too discombobulated, make sure you take plenty of time to meditate and give self care.
