So you made it through the treacherous salty waves of Cancer season, you hopefully said goodbye to some stale baggage at the Lunar Eclipse on July 16th. Maybe you suffered some disappointments and realised that you still have a long way to go before you can see the rewards you dream of.

.

Now we’re through the eclipse portal and the energy has shifted, this August is a month of finding our feet, of spiritually preparing for the second half of 2019.

.

After such an astrologically challenging July, we’ve never been more ready for Leo season fire energy kickstarting our creative valves. Leo rules the heart centre. Things will flow easier for those of us who move through the next few weeks with enthusiasm, releasing any cynical voices in our head telling us the time is not right or that the possibilities are limited.

.

This Full Moon in Aquarius on August 15th is urging us to create our own possibilities and to think outside the box. Aquarius is the archetype of the rebel, the one who challenges the status quo and goes against the grain. Watch the ideas that pop into your head now and don’t dismiss them as crazy! An Aquarius Full Moon is about stepping outside of your comfort zone, and then being surprised at how comfortable you feel once you’re there. With the sun, mercury, mars and venus all in Leo now - there’s a general zest for life that wants us to be bold in our desires and our expression of what we desire. The shadow side of Leo energy is too much egotism or pride, so this Aquarius moon balances and shows us that the best inspiration comes through conversation with others. Thankfully we also have the conjunction of Venus and the Sun helping us to connect and show affection in authentic ways.

.

There is no pressure now to perform. This is the incubator time before Virgo season comes in early September. Now is the time to hold space for your wildest thoughts and think outside the box. There is good energy now for unique ways of problem solving and getting messy with your creativity.

.

Leo season is not about weighing up the pros and cons of whatever is on your mind. It’s about diving in head first, and asking questions later. Throw paint on the canvas and see what new hues you come up with. Be bold in your intention and act with courage.

.

Tell your inner critic to take a back seat and do not strive for perfection now.

Wait and see what golden nuggets come out of the rubble.
