Aquarius Full Moon August 1 and Leo New Moon August 17, 2012

One thing you can count on is that everything in life is impermanent. Change is the driving force of life and a result of your dreams, your beliefs, the decisions you make and the steps of action you take. With Pluto squaring Uranus, change is in the air for all of us! But it is up to you whether you feel victimized or if you are able to direct those currents.

This month there is a vortex of creative energy available for you to live from the center of your being, your heart. Mercury, the mythic messenger of the Gods is turning direct on August 7th at 2 degrees Leo. This year Mercury spends almost ten weeks in Leo rather than the usual three or four (June 25 to August 31). This will give you more time to learn to act from your heart and mature into your personal power. The Sun is ruling Leo and is attributed to the heart and solar plexus chakra, from which we extend our own sense of creative self- expression and passion.

Mars, the warrior and pioneer, is conjuncting Saturn, the disciplinarian (August 15) at 25 degrees Libra. You will be asked to find your passion, determination and courage in the face of obstacles. You will need to put in effort, focus and self-discipline in order to be successful with your ideas and dreams. It is a wonderful month to gain clarity about where you are in your life and where you want to go. Sign up with a coach to help you reach new levels of success and satisfaction. Create a massive action plan and follow through! This is your time!

Full Moon in Aquarius

The Full Moon illuminates how far we have come in our journey and adjusts our aim and direction. If you feel like a stranger in a strange land sometimes, ask yourself: Who are your peers? Where are your friends and like minded souls, people who share your visions and ideals? You will always be defined, uplifted or pulled down to the level of your peer group. If you want to learn, grow and expand, you need to surround yourself with people who have similar values… Great friends are people who keep you challenged and even help you rise above your standards.

New Moon in Leo

Leo is complimenting and opposing Aquarius. These archetypes describe your capacity of individual creativity shared with your community, your authenticity and celebration of diversity, your courage and altruism. The new cycle of the Moon starting in Leo gives you the energy and strength to stand in your own center, acting from your highest source of inspiration, optimism, ingenuity.

It does take courage and determination to be true to who you are in your highest potential, to become the benevolent king or queen of your own life.

When we look at the sign of Leo from an evolutionary perspective we can see the need to learn about joyful self-expression and to allow ourselves to feel passion.

For example, I just finished the creation of a new website for my astrology readings and I am having a ball. This is what I love to do most and it seems I am really good at it. Check out my testimonials… I feel so touched by the feedback and to be able to make a difference in times of high anxiety and challenges!

What is your project you are passionate about? So many ideas, so much energy, so many inspirations… Remember the last time you totally committed yourself to a project and how much fun that was? If you don’t have enough fun and passion in your life this is your time to remedy that situation. If you need some higher perspective, insight or direction for your life right now please connect with me…
