July 31

8:12 PM PT – New Moon at 8° Leo

Mercury stations direct at 23° of Cancer

Leo is courageous. A queen. A king. Regal and resplendent. A magnanimous leader governing the heart and ruled by the sun. When we choose to lead with benevolence, scarcity fails. 

The new moon in Leo arrives on July 31st, opening us up to a season that amplifies themes of generosity, abundance, and optimism. This is the kind of astrology that rapidly expands our potential and demands that we share our good fortune. The new moon reminds us of the expansiveness only possible when we know how to celebrate the wins of those that surround us.

Success is to be shared. 

This new moon is calling us all to be the leaders we need in the world. It reminds us that love in action leaves no room for supremacy to fester. Our soul’s purpose is so much grander than the small-mindedness of greed and exclusion. The little egos among us that make up inhumane laws and evil chants of injustice to keep their privilege in place need to be consistently and diligently interrupted. Day in. Day out. 

As the new moon in Leo resets itself, Mercury also stations direct. This is a lovely gift after the emotional wringer that Eclipse Season put us through. The rest of the astrology of the lunar cycle asks us to live a little more fully then we might. Breaking with the traditions that keep us subdued is how we can unlock our creative currency. 

Complacency is not an option now. The bountiful astrology of August is a fairy god-mother – fleeting, but fully willing to work with us for this moment. 

August 2

Venus in Leo square Uranus in Taurus, both at 6°

While today’s astrology might shake up our relationship dynamics, a deeper truth about our intimacy issues comes loose. This astrology reminds us that taking risks and breaking the molds of convention is what it takes to feel alive. Connections may be disrupted, but any truth about them that comes to consciousness is actually our good fortune. In the coming days, Venus makes one of the best aspects it can, a trine to Lady Luck Jupiter on August 8th. The challenges we encounter quickly turn into great gifts that we get to unpack and unwrap over the next couple of weeks.

August 7

Sun in Leo trine Jupiter Rx in Sagittarius, both at 14°

Exuberant doesn’t even describe today’s set up. The sun and Jupiter, both in their own sign, make a trine to one another. This is a stellar setup. As Venus and Jupiter slowly build up to making contact in the heavens, we can make many things multiply here on earth. Be selective though. Miracle grow isn’t good for every garden. 

August 8

Venus in Leo trine Jupiter Rx in Sagittarius, both at 14°

As Jupiter stations direct, the two most helpful planets in the sky team up to bring us an abundance of beauty, connection, and an intense desire for pleasure-filled pursuits. This is an astrological mark of fortune, best used when you share yours. Generosity makes more of everything.

August 11

Jupiter stations direct at 14° Sagittarius

Mercury enters Leo, where it remains until August 29, 2019

Uranus stations retrograde at 6° of Taurus. Remains retrograde until January 10, 2020

Today two planets change direction, signaling a shift. Out-of-the-blue-windfalls may accompany it, some extremely fortunate, some a little disruptive, all exciting in their own way.

As Jupiter stations direct it signals the last quarter of its cruise through Sagittarius. We only have until December to work with this powerful placement. Now that it is direct, that work is done with much greater ease. The part of our chart that contains Sagittarius will benefit from it the most.

As Uranus stations retrograde, it slowly overturns the terra it has traversed while in Taurus. Today pulls focus on what is generative (Jupiter stationing direct) and what is unpredictable (Uranus stationing retrograde). Those of you with planets between 2°-6° of Taurus will feel this the most. As the deity of great upheaval goes back and forth over this small piece of ground it leaves no stone unturned and no talent latent. Be prepared to put your resources to work and they’ll pleasantly surprise (if not shake up) your world. 

August 13

Sun conjunct Venus in Leo at 20°

For the next couple of days, Venus travels with the sun, helping us heal aspects of our identity. Feelings attractive is an inside job. The more you can love on yourself, the more space you leave for others to do the same. Focus on pleasure in all your endeavors. This isn’t necessarily a nose to the grindstone aspect and it may have you yearning for more free time to enjoy life, so grant yourself some if and when you can.   

 

 

Aries & Aries Rising

To the best of my ability, I make room for joy. I defend my right to it. I guard it against being overtaken with the many distractions of the world. I know that being able to be playful is a privilege – one that fear, insecurity, and sorrow swallow when given the chance. There have been many times, a million moments, where I couldn’t access what felt good. When I’ve had to spend all of my energy surviving. When I was worn out by just trying to get through the day. Whatever distance I have from pain, I promise to pursue what brings me healing so that I have more space for hope. 

One moment of pleasure can rewire my entire system, so I treat it as my most sacred of medicines. 

With this new moon, I plant the seeds for future joy to spring forth. I clear what clutters my path to it. I make no exceptions for those that say one thing and do another. I have no patience for anyone that takes what they want from me but offers little to nothing in return. I make sure that I don’t follow those that lead with only their needs in mind. With this new moon, I recommit to my growth through the most enjoyable avenues available. With this new moon, I remember that my prosperity is made more bountiful when shared with the world around me.

Taurus & Taurus Rising

Without a firm foundation, it’s hard to feel abundant. Without a place to land, it’s more challenging to help the good things in my life grow into their potential. Without knowing the places and spaces where I am valued, it’s hard to know where to root. 

I know that my rise can only be as high and wide as I can dig into myself.

With this new moon, I make space to plant seeds for my future unfolding. Getting my inner life in order means spending a little quality time with me – and those that know how to respect my space. I protect my energy by letting only love and appreciation into my inner chambers. My physical and energetic homes have to honor as the temples they are. With this new moon, I dust off my shelves, sort through my drawers, and shine up my mirrors. 

Self-love is the fairest of them all. 

With symbols of protection hung on my doors and altars to love and healing laid out for my gods, I know that the number one law of abundance is making space for it, so with this new moon, I do.

Gemini & Gemini Rising

My words are the magic with which I cast my spells. I know their power and wield them wisely. I respect their potency and spend their currency with consideration. I don’t waste them on those that refuse to listen. I’d rather spend my energy encouraging the seeds of potential I have planted. With this new moon, I consciously cultivate the sentiments that encourage abundance to flow. I communicate in ways that open up avenues for healing. I speak often and with great appreciation about the opportunities that have yet to come but are well on their way. I relay messages that encourage and support mutual growth. 

If I’m gonna win, my twins are too.

With this new moon, I begin the writing projects I want to see in the world or infuse old ones with new energy. I know that it takes courage to cut ties with convention. If one of my projects needs new energy, life, or a lift, it probably means that I need to try something new. With this new moon, I risk my comfort for the truth. I rise to the challenge of being the bearer of real news. I welcome the upset of those that wish I’d toe the line instead of coloring outside it.

Cancer & Cancer Rising

I magnetize the materials I need to build my dreams. I cleanse my mind of toxic ideas about amassing wealth for my gain alone. I clear my heart of the misconceptions that I need to cling to, hold on to, or hoard attention and societal recognition. 

I know that the more I share, the more I have. 

I make space for what is honestly abundant in my life. Cheap renditions of affluence are no match for the power of generosity. I know that I have been gifted with a bank of goodwill and I plan on spending every cent of it before I leave this earth. I know that I have been given every tool I could ever need and I plan on putting them to the best use. I know that if I don’t focus on innovating how I do my work, I won’t feel alive when I do it. In order to experience abundance, I have to know what things in life can be risked abundantly. My pride, my ego, and any feelings of superiority I may harbor can all be risked, disrupted, and interrupted for a greater wealth to illuminate my life. 

I willingly dismantle any false beliefs that tell me I need to be greedy in order to be wealthy.

Leo & Leo Rising

I am the leader of my own life. I know that any dream I have relies on me knowing this. I know that any opportunity given to me is made more abundant when I claim this. I know that any path I want to take needs me to lead the way to clear it. 

I am the ruler of my reactions. I know that any script I flip, any abundance I share, and any fear I choose to outgrow makes all the difference. It might seem like I’m just in the right place at the right time, but I know the work it took to get me here and I don’t take any of it for granted. Luck comes to those who make the effort to make something out of it. 

I am the giver of all that I wish to receive. Whatever I feel is missing from my life, I seek ways to bring it. Whatever bitterness has crept into my heart, I banish it with my ability to give myself what I need. Whatever is out of alignment in my life gets adjusted with an attitude check. 

With this new moon, I remember that shift happens. More easily when I clear space for it. More joyfully when I give into it. More prosperously when I embrace the changes I encounter and willingly open up to the new energy that they bring.

Virgo & Virgo Rising

I break for joy. I stop when it’s been too long since my body felt loved, replenished, and rested. I pause for all things that help me live my best life. 

For all that I give, offer, and make myself available to, I am allowed to receive, accept, and let myself be. With this new moon, I take some of my best advice. I remember all of the love I have put on others and I put the same on myself. I recall the energy I have spent on building my outer life and reinvest it in doing some inner maintenance. I know how important it is to reconnect with myself through the potent activity of not giving AF while not doing AFing thing. 

I am worthy of a reset. I am worth resting for. 

With this new moon, I remember my inherent value. Separate from my production schedule. Separate from my bank account. Separate from what I can do for others. With this new moon, I focus on valuing my free-time, my natural state of being, and all my rituals for restoration and renewal.

Libra & Libra Rising

There is an abundance of good fortune that I tap into each time I connect with friends and loved ones. With those that want to expand through pleasure as much as they do through serious self-inquiry. With those that know living a life of purpose and meaning need not be boring or dreary. In fact, it can’t be. If I am truly living, I am shining, my soul is set free, and joy is my north star. I was meant to love my life, be turned on by all things that I create, and be fully present in the pursuit of my dreams. 

Feeling good is another key to being fully me. 

I was not put on this earth to live a half-life. I was not placed here to deny my needs, dreams, or desires. I need not reject any celebration of the good life. Surrounded by those that know the power of living generously, my fortune is increased. Surrounded by those that inspire me to serve this world in my own unique way, my self-worth is increased. Surrounded by those who understand the value of quality time spent with like-minds, the size of my heart and hopes is increased.

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising

I show up. For my roles in the world. For my goals in life. For my career and all it encompasses. I show up with my entire self. My energy, my learning curves, and my expertise. I show up ready to work with great discipline and even greater joy.

A little honey always calls the co-working dream teams to come forth. 

I know how important it is to work with integrity. With this new moon, I plant the professional seeds I most wish to enjoy the fruit of. With this new moon, I remember to shine brilliantly as the leader of my own life. With this new moon, I know that good things flow towards me all the time, but it’s my job to remember to flow with them. To prepare a space for them to land. Take root. Grow tall and wide. 

I am an excited host for the arrival of all blessings. I know that nothing squashes good fortune like an expectation of what it should look, be, or act like. I remind myself that cosmic gifts come it all kinds of bizarre forms.  The more I trust what shows up, the more I am able to work with it for as long as it is with me.

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising

I let myself go. I air myself out. With the wind on my skin and road rapidly running under me, I let myself be. There are times for excavation and times for expansion. I have been doing the former and am now ready for the latter. 

With this new moon, I give myself ample room to roam and breathe free.

In honor of all the times I had to shrink myself down, wait to exhale or fold my grand ideas into bite-sized morsels for the palates of those unaccustomed to the truth, I take this time to let my creativity run wild. I let my energy run unruly. I let my curiosity lead me no matter what. I let myself know nothing. I release myself from my identities, roles, and regular ways of being. I practice emptying out my preconceived notions every morning so that I might be prepared for my next big idea, a moment of pleasure, and a tiny but seismic shift.  

I allow myself to travel to the unfamiliar stretches my mind and spirit in the best of ways. I’m ready to shake off what keeps me chained to a certain perspective so that I can seek what thrills, excites, and soothes me.

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising

Good things come to me through those that I put myself in the company of. Those that will protect my sensitive sides, promote my creative ingenuity, and help me to display the talents I have worked so hard to hone.

I hang around those that remind me who I am. I collaborate with those that refuse anything but the best of what I can bring. I join forces with folks that contribute quality to any project we embark on.

With this new moon, I am offered the gift of healing through celebration. I love my wins as much as the wins of my loves. I know that collective gain is the most valuable asset to acquire. When I feel empty or unsure of what I have to offer, I remember to focus on what I can give to others. In doing so, I give myself the great gift of channeling generosity and reaping the cleansing rewards of it. There is nothing that I can truly receive without being willing to also give it.

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising

Every moment of intimacy I experience burns away a layer of what prevents me from feeling lovable. Any lies about my worthiness that I have picked up, made up, or bought into can be dispelled by a sincere act of kindness. Disrupted by direct transmission of care. Derailed by an act of generosity towards me.  

I make sure to receive them. 

This new moon highlights the relationships in my life that are abundant in their ability to know that love is its own reward. There is nothing to get from each other, just experiences to give and receive. There is nothing to demand of one another when boundaries are respected and beauty is honored. There is nothing to push anyone else towards when I am as firm as I need to be with what is important to me. 

I have no fear that those that share what I find sacred will find me. 

With this new moon, I remember the power of enjoying the company I keep. I surround myself with those that want to place mutual pleasure side by side with respect and integrity.

Pisces & Pisces Rising

The new moon reminds me of what healing can mean for me. It reminds me that a little joy packs a lot of medicine. It reminds me that staying stuck when I have the freedom to make a move serves no one. Especially me. 

With this new moon, I make a commitment to do the things that get my blood flowing, heart pumping, and juices going. I remember that love makes me strong, generosity makes me wealthy, and abundance is what comes when I consistently show myself radical kindness. 

With this new moon, I infuse my work projects with the kind of enthusiasm I hope to receive from putting them into the world. I strive for solutions without looking away from the intensity of the problem. The more space I keep open for answers, the more willing they are to arrive. The more fluid I can be with what works, the more possibility for success. The more I witness how far I’ve come, how sincerely I have tried, and how much I am bringing to the table, the more easily I can get on with the business at hand and heart.
