Welcome, August!

Personal Power, Self-Confidence, Success, Abundance, and a Balance of Giving and Receiving

This month’s theme carries the energy of personal power, self-confidence, success, abundance, and a balance of giving and receiving. With the element of fire that comes forth with Leo season, we all have access to the power to succeed mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and etherically, with physically tangible effects on our lives. The time is now to fully make way for the new that is coming into your life. 

While we continue to experience major Universal energy shifts and up-levels of all aspects of our beings and lives, this month it is important to make sure that you are hydrating by drinking three quarts of pure water a day to help integrate all the changes around you. For an extra boost to your system, add fresh lemon, lime, or orange or a high-quality therapeutic grade of those oils to your water. 

Planetary Alignments

August energy finds Pluto, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, and Chiron all still in retrograde. This will be a month of new system upgrades and external alignments, while the Universe unfolds your path of destiny even greater.   

Here are some other important things to be on the lookout for this month: 

  • August 3rdFull Moon in Aquarius. This Full Moon was known by early Native American tribes as the Sturgeon Moon because the large sturgeon fish of the Great Lakes and other major lakes were more easily caught at this time of year. This Moon has also been known as the Green Corn Moon and the Grain Moon. With this Full Moon being in the sign of the humanitarian, it is going to offer global awareness and the option for healing on multiple levels as some choose to rise higher in consciousness. 
  • August 11th–12thPerseids Meteor Shower. This is one of the best meteor showers to observe, producing up to 60 meteors per hour at its peak. The Perseids are famous for producing a large number of bright meteors. The shower runs annually from July 17th to August 24th. It peaks this year on the night of the 11th and morning of the 12th. The second quarter Moon will block out some of the fainter meteors this year, but the Perseids are so bright and numerous that it should still be a good show. The best viewing will be from a dark location after midnight. Meteors will radiate from the constellation Perseus but can appear anywhere in the sky.
  • August 19th—New Moon in Leo. The Moon will be located on the same side of the Earth as the Sun and will not be visible in the night sky. This is the best time of the month to observe faint objects such as galaxies and star clusters because there is no moonlight to interfere. This New Moon has the power of the Lion and Fire behind it, so use it to manifest the desires of your soul and surrender it over to the Divine to work out the details. 

August is a profound month on all levels. Working with the energies of this month can propel you to new heights on your journey, in ways you could have never imagined. Use the vibrational highs of this month to get in touch and live your truest, deepest passions, or remember what those are while you do the inner work to achieve them. 

Stay Inspired,



My work views all the elements of being a human—the physical, emotional, and mental—as deeply intertwined… It is from this whole-person perspective that we can best identify the underlying causes of our struggles and empower ourselves to heal.
