August Star Gazings
FIRE SIGNS 🔥
🐏 ARIES (March 20 - April 19)
2 of Wands (rx): Should you stay or should you go? You may be reluctant to make a decision just yet on how to move forward. The advice here is not to be impulsive in your decision-making and, instead, take a step back to assess where your heart and soul are calling you. If you're still on the fence, consider which path will bring you the most healing, growth potential, and fulfillment. Things may look scary and unclear now, but trust that the path will unfold once you figure out what it is that you want for yourself... and what you don't want anymore. Alleviate the pressure you feel by taking some time to meditate and recenter yourself, then revisit the situation so that you can make a clear decision with confidence.
🦁 LEO (July 22 - Aug 22)
Knight of Wands: Happy birthday, August Leos! You've been through the wringer and now it's time for you to allow the healing to begin. The best way to move forward from here is to surrender and go out on a limb toward what lights you up. It's time to let the 'swords' fall out one by one and integrate the lessons of each with grace and compassion because a new beginning and mission awaits. The Knight of Wands encourages you to reconnect with your passions in life and go full-speed towards them. Integrate moments of bliss into your life and start reigniting your own fire. Ask for the support you need and shed anything that doesn't serve your highest good. Onward and upward, dear Leo.
🏹 SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 - Dec 20)
The Moon (rx): This month, be careful not to allow impulse to override your intuition because you may be tempted to leap before you think. With The Moon in reverse, there's an air of deception fueled by fear, as if the wool is being pulled over your eyes and you're not able to see things for what they are. Your advice is to not resist this time of pause and to embrace the gift of discernment. Trust your intuition. If something feels off, then you're probably right. Take the time you need to assess the situation so that your intuition can come through clearly to guide the way forward.
EARTH SIGNS 🌎
🐂 TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)
7 of Wands: Right now, it may feel as though the rug has been ripped from underneath your feet and things just aren't going as planned. Instead of being defensive and allowing your circumstances to trigger you -- which will only make matters worse -- consider what lesson and blessing these events are trying to teach you. Now's not the time to be reactive or allow anger to turn to rage. Call back your power and draw on the wisdom of the past so that you can explore your inner workings to better understand how to respond to your outer world. Remember, this is all happening for your growth in some way, shape, or form.
🌾 VIRGO (Aug 23 - Sept 22)
6 of Pentacles (rx): Happy birthday, August Virgos (me included 🥳)! I'm going to put my Mom hat on and remind you that life isn't fair, but it's how YOU choose to respond that truly defines you. The 6 of Pentacles in reverse tells me that what you've been giving isn't being reciprocated and it's got you down and out... again. Only you can make the decision to stop giving your power and energy away to people/things who/that don't align with your truth and purpose here. Justice won't be served until you say it will, and then it's up to you to take intentional action toward making positive change in your life. Get honest with yourself, put your pride aside, and ask for the support you need right now. This isn't the end nor is this punishment -- this is an opportunity for you to take charge of your life and make shit happen. Godspeed, dear Virgo!
🐐 CAPRICORN (Dec 21 - Jan 19)
4 of Wands: There's immense healing on a foundational level that's being ushered in this month. Something or someone from the past is resurfacing to be healed once and for all. This situation may have left you feeling slighted, causing you to hold resentment, but now it's time to make peace with it all so that you can free up space for love, happiness, and compassion. You were right for being the bigger person and leaving the past behind, even though it didn't feel like it at the time. Fill your cup up and get the closure you deserve. Free yourself from this karmic cycle by allowing healing and love to replace resentment and anger.
AIR SIGNS 🌬
👯♀️ GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)
The Fool (rx): There may be a tempting new opportunity opening up to you this month that seems too good to be true. With The Fool in reverse, the advice is to NOT jump head first because there's a key element that needs to be revealed that could change your decision and the outcome in the long run. You may be required to sacrifice or leave something behind in order to embark on this new path, so take your time parsing out the pros and cons before signing on the dotted line. You're also being encouraged to reach out to your support system to gain varying perspectives on the situation -- but remember, ultimately you are the final say in where you go from here. Take your time, do it right.
⚖️ LIBRA (Sept 23 - Oct 22)
Wheel of Fortune: Well well, Libra. It looks like fate is on your side right now. This is a time of expansion for you and the Universe will be throwing you tests left and right to ensure that you're truly ready to level up. Now's a perfect time to assess how far you've come, the lessons you've learned, the ways in which you've grown and evolved, as well as where you want to go from here. This recent phase of worry, doubt, fear, and grief is coming to a close and a whole new world is opening up to you. Ground your energy, allow your body to rest when you can, and open up to where your intuition leads you -- you are your own guide.
🏺AQUARIUS (Jan 20 - Feb 17)
4 of Swords (rx): This month, you're being called to rest and rejuvenate, dear Aquarius. You've dedicated so much time doing for others, now it's time to turn that focus onto your own self. Consider this the integration phase that precedes a new phase in your life. You're being given a blank slate to create the life you want to live, so use this time of rest and integration to turn within and really figure out what you want for yourself. What small steps can you take to shift into more alignment who and what you want to be? What and who needs to go in order to make room for what is meant to be? What needs to change in your daily habits, thoughts, and practices that would make you feel more aligned with your truth? Take all these things into consideration this month as you tune off the outside world and tune into your inner sanctuary.
WATER SIGNS 🌊
🦀 CANCER (June 21 - July 21)
4 of Pentacles: Your relationship with money and finances is coming up this month and needing to be assessed to see where you might be holding too tightly to old, outdated belief systems. This struggle with money stems back to themes of power, status, societal pressures, and the like. Your advice is to stop creating a false sense of competition with others and start considering what makes you happy and fulfilled outside of monetary gain or success. Take some time this month to explore who you are outside of what you do for work, what you own, and what accolades you have under your belt. Is this "you" content with who they are on a foundational and fundamental level? Start there and see how that plays into how you view money and how that contributes to any unhealthy ideals about money and status.
🦂 SCORPIO (Oct 23 - Nov 21)
Ace of Swords: You have a new sense of clarity this month that allows you to move on from something that served its purpose but was too limiting and misaligned for where you see yourself heading. Don't be surprised if this ruffles feathers and triggers some people (i.e. egos) in your life. What's different this time around is your clarity on the road ahead that has allowed you to cut through the bullshit to the truth of why you're choosing to move in a new direction. You don't need to explain or defend yourself to anyone, this is YOUR life and you are in the driver's seat. Just know when people have something negative to say about your life, it's their ego doing the talking. Trust your heart and where it's calling you. Godspeed, Scorpio.
🐟 PISCES (Feb 18 - Mar 19)
3 of Swords (rx): Recent sorrow leads to an invigorated and determined spirit that is hungry to feel alive again. If you've experienced sorrow or grief recently, just know that rejection is Spirit's protection and redirection toward something more aligned and more fulfilling in the long run. You may not see or feel it now, but you're already on the other side of things so let the healing begin. The lessons you've learned up until this point in your life will serve as the fuel to your fire and the wisdom to navigate the way forward. Trust that you have everything you need to forge forward, the Universe is on your side. Keep keepin' on and don't stop because your ships are coming in. Trust that!
And so it is… 🖤
