Scroll down to find your sun sign + August 2023 Astrology!
Hunker down, and get comfortable with the uncomfortable. It’s time to ascend the mountain. A long rigorous and unpredictable expedition waits ahead. This is the continuation journey pertaining to the major June to July shifts. All that has been revealed, illuminated, and decided on. This is where the real work starts. There may be a handful of actions regarding our desires, passions and purpose. Now is the time to do what you love, and get paid for it. It’s time to align and balance the concept of abundance. The collective communication is very analytical and discerning this month. Others may need some proof and consistent actions before anyone puts full faith in new promises.
Mid month a shining vibration strikes through the tenacious atmosphere with love, compassion, and radiant shining optimism. This will be a nice plateau to take a break on this vigorous path. It would be important to not force things but instead try and allow them to drop into place effortlessly. This will need a combination of divine faith and a graceful surrendering frequency.
Towards the end of the month there may be a time where we must speak our truth. Truth seekers, Wanderers, Starseeds, Galactic warriors, Healers, love warriors and it's time to own your light. Step into your power. Don’t play small and into other peoples boxes. Time to collaborate on higher levels on this new evolutionary trajectory. It is time to integrate our abilities as a collective.
There is a major test coming towards the end of the month. Have you kept your agreements? Are you aligned with the whole truth and highest vibration of love? If you are standing in the light, then things will flow into place just as you may want them too. If not, there will be major challenges, obstacles and lessons. Time to recognize old patterns and mechanisms. The under belly is waiting for indecision, and programmed mechanized compliance to compartmentalize pain. Be mindful as this may feel like walking a very thin fence on the old paradigm and the new one. The highest most loving path may be the one that is initially uncomfortable. Once you digest the new frequencies things will settle and will slowly start to decompress.
Towards the end of the month it will be centered on dreaming big with the second full moon. Start to visualize the new goals and aspirations you have. Then speak and write them into the physical world so they may start to materialize. Harness this magickal lunation for a powerhouse portal of manifestation.
Full Moon in Aquarius
On Tuesday August 1st 18:31 there will be a full moon in the fixed air sign of Aquarius. This will put a main focus on our community, collective and the ‘soul tribe’ like groups you have. How do we show up in our social groups and how do we invest in them? Our most important capitol is community. There will also be a giant internal and external shift. There will be a call to move on. It’s time to move on in any and all regards. Move on from a job, a home, a relationship, a group or network, a way of thinking, beliefs, and even ideas. Do you want to become cemented in the past repeating outdated cycles? Or moving onto a future of fulfillment and a frequency that aligns with divine love. Lots of conclusions, healing resolutions regarding karmic energies. There is a hesitation on upgrading. The fear and assumption that history may repeat itself. This new energy that is anchored in is not the same vibration as the old, but may share similar qualities which could remind us of past pain. It may be a huge improvement on this path for upgrading to embrace and have full faith. A powerful lunation for spell work, cord cutting, divination, bon fires, and ego death work.
New Moon in Leo
On Wednesday August 16th at 9:37 PM (PST) there will be a new moon in Leo. We’ve been getting to the heart of the matter by letting go of things that will free up a pathway ahead. Leading up to this lunation may be a time when solutions start to surface. There may also be some uneasy and unbalanced energy. This would be a great time to focus all heartfelt intentions on passion projects. A highly creative and expressive frequency flutters around. There could be some chaos and confusion around certain romantic relationships. It would be wise to listen to gut instincts and intuition. Old relationships or connections may become resparked or revised. Be open to many scenarios and the idea of what romance is as it may shift during this time.
Second Full Moon in Pisces
On Thursday August 31st 1:35 AM (PST) there will be a full moon in the mutable water sign of Pisces. Charged by an artistic imaginative energy pulsing through the airways. An electric feeling of expression, creation, and talents shining bright. Utilize this time for art, music, craft, expression, and all things that the hands can create. Spiritual practices are heightened and it may be a wise time to try new wellness or healing modalities out. Be fluid and have a blissful lunation.
Along with five other planets Mercury retrograde in Virgo this month on. It can occur three to four times a year. Even though 'retrograde' means 'to go backward,' in the Latin Language, this does not mean planets in retrograde physically move backwards. Retrograde planets only appear to our eye and perspective to do so. First they appear to stand still, then visually retreat backward, dancing in loops in the sky; as they station direct, they appear to stand still, slowly regaining speed before they shift forward. This astrological energy is disruptive to the planet’s normal (direct) energy. Mercury for instance governs; communication, transportation, and technology. These aspects and experiences of life will feel this heavy resistance when this planet is in retrograde.
