Oh the freedom and lightness you must be feeling right now, after all the focus has shifted away from your sign and the lunations are not eclipses. Mercury is the last straggler at the Cancer party, on 1 August he’s just picking himself up off the retrograde floor and getting ready to leave for the Leo festivities (12 August). He may have some last insights to offer on his way out of the door, so be open to conversations with others that explore your dwellings of recent weeks as they may offer some final new perspectives to add to your future plans.
But onto Leo! The New Moon on 1 August is an exciting time to bring some flow into your finances and assets which hopefully Mars, the Sun and Venus have already been stimulating. The thing is, this requires movement so you need to put some effort in to reap the rewards. With Venus in the mix, trust in your own resources and capacities to earn plays a part as well. We only get what we value, and so the question now is “do I value myself enough to earn what I need?” Look at all you have learned over recent months, what you now understand about yourself, and go from there.
There will be some fresh energy towards resetting your lifestyle choice, if your optimistic Jupiter plans have fallen by the wayside in the face of eclipse season. Remember back to November last year? What urges did you have, or intention set in place to keep yourself clean and healthy? And the Moon in Sagittarius connects with Jupiter on 10 August, it’s time to find joy in the mundane again as a good fitness and eating routine brings you back to self-care. The Sun and Venus in Leo are supporting your daily work life through their connections with Jupiter this month. A potential spotlight on your good work on 7 August could open some doors, so take a leap of faith and run with the opportunities. Friday 9th can see good relationships with your colleagues or setting up beneficial projects for the office flows back as increased sense of value and possible financial gains.
The Moon’s travels through Capricorn (11-12/13 August) could bring back some bumpy moments in your relationships, but the clarity about your future direction allows you to slow down and navigate with the long-view keeping you on track. Just watch obsessive thoughts around partnerships or possible power plays as Pluto’s energy is highlighted. If sharing has been an issue, or inherited family behaviours are still rearing their head, the Full Moon a few days later can help you jettison that cargo – it only holds you back.
This month brings a second New Moon in it’s final days – the gift of the New Moon in Virgo – and a chance to share and get out and about, so social gatherings or networking events will be perfect ways to do this. Short trip, workshops, or refining your communication skills are all goals that can benefit from this New Moon.
Power days: 7 & 10 August
Days to watch: 11-13 August
