This week urges us to change  the way we temper our emotions. Take a deep breath, exhale, and let matters simmer down before they reach a boiling point. Mercury moves into Virgo on August 11, which will add earthiness, practicality and reason to communication.On Aug 11, Venus, who’s in Virgo, harmonizes with Pluto, who’s in Capricorn. This cosmic connection will bring out a lot of our deep-seated feelings and relationships and give us a boost of passion. Mars, who’s in Virgo, shares a fraught aspect with the Nodes of Destiny on August 11. Conflicting ways of taking action and moving forward will create inner tension, urging us to stay put with our decisions for the next week. August 15’s First Quarter Moon in Scorpio brings inner growth to us. Mercury squares off with the Nodes of Destiny on August 15, making it challenging to express our sentiments to others concisely. Venus enters Libra on August 16, adding harmony and banakance to partnerships. 


You’re known to be rambunctious at times. This week’s cosmic energy juxtaposes your usual defensive attitude and urges you to take a step back from your assertive nature. Observing situations from the sidelines brings a different perspective in how you handle matters. This will help you find peace and resolve.


Passions will flair up throughout the week, which is why it’s best to rest your horns and enjoy the colorful, sensual, and fun energy coming your way. The overall vibe will give you the opportunity to enthusiastically charge forward into the future, as long as you live in the moment.


There is a lot of tension brewing beneath the surface of your beautiful mind. Your personal life is super stressful, which is why you will be giving work the majority of your energy. The distraction will be rewarding at first, but leave you starving for attention and affection later on.


As so many changes are occurring in your world and with your identity, it’s important to find solace where possible. Meditation can help a lot with these big transitions, as you’re happiest when alone with yourself and thoughts. Take time to provide space for processing, healing, and care this week.


Issues with others come to the forefront this week, forcing you out of your comfort zone and into protective mode. Instead of roaring your sentiments at others, take a step back and decide if arguing is the best solution. Letting go of squabbles will lead you down a better path. 


Fed up with the humdrum aspects of life, you crave excitement this week! Mundane daily routines have left your inner self wanting joy and fun. Fortunately for you, it’s arrived! Instead of keeping a set schedule, let yourself be impulsive and act on a whim. It will set you free. 


Family issues or problems with your peers come to a head, making you broker peace between familial members to solve conflicts. A negotiator by nature, it’s time to use your talents to bring others together. This week you’re called upon to help mend fences between people in your immediate sphere. 


Finally, you can get off the emotional roller coaster, which you have been riding on for a long time. This will give you time to focus on healing and transforming your life. You’ll be able to move towards the dream and vision you want, once you refresh your personal world.


You will be a little lost in the shuffle this week. Fortunately, your voice is always heard, even if you feel overlooked. Try to stay focused on the positives. Don’t get sidetracked by the past or fearful of the future. Surrendering to negativity will make you feel uninspired and stuck. 


Working to the bone, without enjoying the fruits of your labor, has given you the desire to revel in earthy pleasures this week. Take time to revel in fun and give yourself TLC. Add self-care to your routine with R & R. After all, dear sea goat, you’ve earned it! 


Are you equating your self-worth with  the amount of validation you’re attaining? Applause and nice comments on your creative abilities will help bring you out of your funk. But, true admiration comes from within. The only opinion that counts is yours. Don’t be your biggest critic. Give yourself lots of love.


The wheels of life are spinning for you. Instead of trying to keep your head above water, dive deep and swim with the waves, for you are a Pisces after all. Take things as they come. You have a remarkable ability to shape shift and conform with the overall energy.

The Leo New Moon

Welcome the new moon in Leo!

The Leo New Moon

Astrology by

August 8’s New Moon is urging us to evolve and grow. The caveat is that we are resisting the change that is needed at the moment. Going against the energy of the universe will create issues for us, which is why it’s important for us to flow forward and break on through to the other side of our emotions. This can bring bliss and goodness, if we embrace it. 

The New Moon sets off the Saturn and Uranus square that is one of the major astrological themes of 2021. Dates to look back on are February 17 and June 14 (along with the upcoming cosmic clash on December 24). The New Moon in Leo will oppose Saturn, who’s retrograde in Aquarius, and square Uranus, who’s in Taurus, making a fraught Fixed T-Square. 

The Fixed T-Square is urging us to stick with the status quo and to hold onto situations or emotions, while Uranus’s involvement in this cluster is pushing us to move forward and to free ourselves from matters that are not serving our higher purpose in life. That is why the tension in an already stressful predicament is creating inner turmoil. The only way to make a decision is to be honest with yourself. Think about what or who you love. If you are feeling as though you want to work on evolving your visions, then do so. Only commit to what makes you happy and brings you joy. Everything else should fall to the wasteside. 

The Sabian Symbol for the New Moon is described as “The Storm Ends, All Nature Rejoices In Brilliant Sunshine.” No other sentiment can be truer. It’s time to say goodbye to the trauma, which is the shadow side of the zodiac sign Leo, and lean into the beautiful vibration of the fiery sign. We’ve made it through the rain and the hard moments of the month, now we can enjoy life. The fixed star Mizar will add positivity to the outcome of the luminary. Mizar will connect with the New Moon, making it a successful day to set intentions and make them a reality. 

Later in the day at 10:30 AM PDT and 1:30 PM EDT, the Lion’s Gate Portal (which has been observed for centuries by the Dogon tribe of Africa, Sumer, and Ancient Egyptians) will reach its potency. Although Lion’s Gate is unlocked from July 28 to August 12, August 8 (8/8) is a powerful time because of the numerology of “88” (a number that is transformative, prosperous, abundant, and infinite). Being that it coincides with the Leo New Moon this year, it’s a very magical time. This is an energetic booster to manifesting dreams, due to the cosmic gates creating a triangle with the constellation of Orion’s Belt, the fixed star Sirius (also known as the "Spiritual Sun"), and the Pyramids of Giza. 

Let the sunshine in! 


*The Leo New Moon occurs on August 8 at 6:50 AM PDT and 9:50 AM EDT.

New Moon Ritual:


Take the Strength Tarot Card (this card represents the zodiac sign Leo) out of the deck. Place it on your altar.  Stare at the card and let it inspire you to assert dominance over your own life.  Light a gold candle (gold is the color of Leo) to call in the cosmic energy and spirits. Meditate on the areas of your life that you want to evolve, harvest, and transform. Write down the goals that enter your mind. Bury the paper in a potted plant, garden, or backyard. Tend to it throughout the year with water, love, music, and conversion.  Let them grow and your dreams will become real.
