It’s the Full Moon forecast…
The Full Moon of August 2018
The August 11th Eclipse is in effect until January 2019. Gasp! It carries seeds of possibility. Should you decide to plant them, their sprouts grow in a way that changes the trajectory of your life. Remember the image, seed – sprout. It’s a plant, not a light switch. Rushing, demanding and grabbing all force intuition and creativity into a corner. Break the pattern of needing to know exactly what the end result will be. Let fun and spontaneity guide your efforts. Faith is your new scary friend.
The full Moon on August 26th is in visionary Pisces. There are just two weeks left to span the crazy retrogrades of summer. Any retrograde is about an internal examination of the self. Beliefs, values and attitudes challenge our resilience. Growth is often a series of starts and stops. Like a baby learning to walk, we sometimes fall flat on our assets. Clarity comes when we unplug. Reflect… have a date with your dreams and let your answers bubble to the surface. Often a step at a time is revealed. A song, a person to contact or a scene that sticks are all worth your contemplation.
“Learn to pause…or nothing worthwhile will catch up to you”. Poet Doug King
This is the reason promotions and new starts fall flat during these time outs. We need a pause. The challenge we’ve facing is how to move forward. What would give deeper meaning to your efforts? Who is it imperative that you trust? How can you get your power in present time and go after what you want? Google that last one and you’ll find yourself in a worm hole of self-help classes and a maze of “how to”.
The warrior, Mars goes direct August 27th. How will you go after your goals? There’s a two-year window opening to develop your passion. Create, organize and prioritize. Something feels fated about the road ahead. Getting hung up on the big picture of “how” it will fall together, or a guarantee will scare you into submission. A saner approach is creating a protocol of deadlines. Where might you bet on yourself and take a risk? We need the attitude that miracles do happen and help can come from anywhere.
The energy of partnership arrives on the 26th, challenging us to claiming our strengths. You will be a mirror for others too. Saturn turning direct, September 6th, supports our authenticity in group efforts. Where have you been proving yourself in relation to your values? The healing focus in on the Pisces Moon. Feel your way through, and trust the tap on your shoulder is an authentic nudge from the Divine.
“Feed your curiosity vs your defensiveness” Brene Brown
We have the discipline and persistence to reach our goals.
Keeping an inquisitive nature and working with others is key. The fastest way to derail your efforts is taking the hard, isolating stand of the rebel.
I’ll see you again at the new Moon, September 9th. If you would like an overview of your year ahead call today!
