Unleash Your Voice:

Let Your Lion’s Roar Be Heard!

August is a breath of fresh air for us after such a tumultuous July! Your heart may be feeling a bit battered, bruised, and exhausted. Your mind may be dizzy and spinning from all the changes that took place. Your body may be tired, or it may be wired with a ton of excess energy you can’t find an outlet for. July left many of us feeling at one end or the other of an extreme energetic spectrum and we need to find our way back to center.

But of course, all unfolds in divine timing. Erratic, wild July was needed to prepare us to take bold, grounded action this month. What was lost will be replaced with something greater – if it hasn’t been replaced already. What was shed will allow us to soar higher as we are freed from excess weight. The strength we called in will serve us well as we take on new challenges with gumption, courage, and laser-beam focus.

Through the month of August, it is important to remain heart-centered. This month is a time when action is required to further your goals and mission in this lifetime. As with any period when strong, decisive action is needed, the mind can cause struggle where struggle need not be. You know what is right in your heart, but if you turn your ear away from its soft voice, the unending chatter of your mind may confuse you to the point where you are unable to take any action at all.

To help you stay tuned-in to your heart, connect with soft, compassionate Rose Quartz. This stone is popular for a reason – its sweet vibrations have served many in the pursuit of navigating back into communion with the heart. Wear it around your neck right against your chest for a constant, tangible reminder of your heart’s power to guide you ever forward with ease and grace.
Rose Quartz is also an effective heart-healer. If your heart hurts from loss, grief, change, or loneliness, meditate with a Rose Quartz palm stone, tumbled stone, or raw piece. Sleep with a Rose Quartz polished heart under your pillow to soothe yourself on restless nights. If you find that your heart is blocked from giving or receiving love in your life, Rose Quartz will also help you to find enough trust to crack the doors of your heart open again so that divine light may flow in and out once more.

August promises to be a month full of love – for the self, for Spirit, for others, and for the dreams that are finally making their way into reality. Remember to enjoy yourself this month, to rest when needed, and act when needed. Keep Rose Quartz with you as you walk through this season of the lion and let your heart roar with passion at the blessings that have been and will continue to be bestowed upon you. 
AFFIRMATION OF THE MONTH
I choose to take courageous action in the face of new challenges.
I practice self-compassion through every difficult emotion that arises.
I give myself permission to shine my light in greater and grander ways.

Planetary Overview for the month of
August 2019

Goodbye turbulent July, hello joyful, abundant August! This is a far lighter and brighter month than what we just went through, but there is still a lot of room for greater empowerment in our lives through inspired action. It is Leo season, after all, which means it’s the perfect time to let out a great roar and step onto the field of life! No more standing on the sidelines. It’s time to play!

The journey of August begins with the residue of the Black Super New Moon gracing us with her presence on July 31st. This is an invitation to soften our edges after a rough and rocky eclipse season. Any jagged aspects of our world will begin to smooth out. That which perhaps was turned upside down will right itself again as a new, evolved version of its old manifestation. 

The annual Lionsgate portal which began on the 26th of July peaks on August 8th. This is the perfect time to access higher wisdom, set powerful intentions, and to connect with your Higher Self for guidance. You may find that you have vibrant dreams – pay attention to the signs and symbols contained within them. Déjà vu may be stronger on and around the 8th as timelines merge and shift rapidly. 

Take advantage of the portal by sitting in deep meditation. Open to receive the guidance from your Higher Self as well as your angels and guides. Allow the messages to pour in and don’t worry about understanding everything that comes through. Some information may cause an immediate revelation, and some may simply plant a seed for insights and transformations to come. If you practice any creative art, spend time between the 8th and the 12th engaging in your activity of choice as the energies at this time are potent for new levels of artistic expression. 

As Mercury is still in its retrograde period at the start of the month, it is important to slow down, contemplate next moves, and devise a plan before moving forward with any big decisions.

Right action will become clear, perhaps when you least expect it. When it does, go for it! But don’t rush the process due to impatience. All will happen in divine right timing. Trust the unfoldment of your journey and take only that action which calls you clearly forward.

As you set your intentions for August, consider that the eclipse season boosted you into a new phase of existence. The entire collective received an opportunity to elevate, and if you rode the wave of change you may be experiencing a new paradigm that frightens you with its power. You may even wonder at your own self, as you feel very different in the wake of last month’s cosmic events. 

Remember that as the situations of your life expand to become greater than before, so you must live into more of your own greatness. You are ready for whatever you have been presented with. Trust that you would not be asked to step into any role or situation if the Universe wasn’t certain that you could handle it.

To aid you in transitioning into a more empowered existence, Leo season offers us plenty of opportunity for growth in the area of leadership. This may mean that you are asked to lead a team, or that you need to become a better leader for yourself in your own life. 

Where can you take ownership and responsibility for yourself and your life that you may have passed off as someone else’s problem up till now? Where can you stand inside your own power with greater confidence and authority? Where can you lead by example, not just by words? Think of the lion, so sure of its strength. Where in your life can you call in more lion energy so that you may own every aspect of yourself and your journey with greater certainty and fortitude?

🌕♑On August 15th we have an Aquarius Full Moon, which is an auspicious time to garner more independence in areas of your life where you’ve been feeling chained to a person or circumstance.

You, like all of us, have a divine right to your sovereignty even within this interconnected collective. Find an opportunity to explore more of yourself without the influence of another. This could be going on solitary walks or hikes, finding time for quiet contemplation in your garden or your room. You may want to take a long drive or engage in an experience you’ve always wanted to have. 

While relationships with others will always be important, our relationship with ourselves is the centerline that gives all other relationships the opportunity to develop in a way that is nourishing and helpful for all parties involved. If you find that this Full Moon is rife with jealousy, resentment, bitterness, or distrustfulness, meditate with a piece of Rose Quartz and really sit with the feelings coursing through your system. Do they stem from an unhealed place within yourself? Or is the other in question exhibiting behavior that is truly toxic to your wellbeing? It could be a little of both, in which case both need to be addressed.  

It’s easy to project your feelings onto another as a way to avoid facing yourself, but especially for the Empaths among us, it can be a bad habit to insist that all negative or painful feelings are because we are doing something wrong. If someone is seriously draining your energy, holding you back, or harming you with their words or behavior, consider ways you can distance yourself from them so that you may reenter a state of peace.

On August 23rd we move into Virgo season. More than anything, this shift out of fiery Leo and into grounded Virgo asks us to clean up our patterns and habits so that they may be more in line with the upward trajectory we crave. Where are you leaking your energy? Where are you rationalizing laziness as relaxation? 

While our time in Virgo is more about rooting down than ploughing forward, it is still vitally important that you limit your recharge time. Too much relaxation makes it infinitely harder to get back up and keep moving forward. Listen to your body and give it what it needs but be prepared to tell your mind to hush up when it tries to convince you that you really, really need just one more episode of your TV show of choice. 

August 30th brings our Virgo New Moon which grants us the gift of a clean slate. If the chalkboard of your life has become too muddy with plans, lists, and ideas then it is time to simplify. Distill the contents of your mind down to the essentials and wipe the rest away. This will leave space for all the new, exciting downloads of information and bursts of creativity that are sure to abound throughout the next moon cycle.

Happy August!
