August starts out with faith and optimism on 8/1, with the Moon in Leo conjunct to Mars and Trine to Jupiter. This is very good for movement forward, using your inner guidance. It strengthens that Leo quality of “ I will”.
8/5 is powerful, with the Moon making six aspects, it sextiles the Sun, Jupiter, Venus, and Mars. Initiative, Faith, charm, abundance, and confidence. At the same time, it squares Pluto and Saturn, the two Root Chakra planets. That gives us another opportunity to clear old fears and pain.
8/7 is good, with the Moon in Scorpio trine to Neptune in Pisces. This is lovely for meditation, self-reflection, and compassion. At the same time, the Sun trines Jupiter in Sagittarius. The opportunities are limitless with these two aspects. 8/9 is also very good, with the Moon in Sagittarius conjunct to Jupiter, and Trine to Venus. Protection, grace, expansion, and hope.
8/12 offers the potential for a deep look into the subconscious, with the the Moon in Capricorn conjunct to both Pluto and Saturn. This could facilitate a spiritual breakthrough.
8/15 is a powerful Full Moon, with the Sun in Leo opposing the Moon in Aquarius, which also opposes both Venus and Mars in Leo. This could create the illusion that you have to fight for what you need, which is never true. Deny any appearances that suggest that. Affirm that all that is yours now comes to you, under grace, in perfect ways.
8/21 is excellent, with several positive aspects. The Moon trines both Venus and Mars, energy, vitality, blessings, and courage, while also moving to conjunct Uranus, freedom, liberation, and new beginnings. Mercury, which is the planet of communication and ideas, trines Jupiter. Abundant ideas and wonderful opportunities. The 22nd is also very good.
8/26 is excellent, with the Moon in Cancer forming a number of lovely aspects. Take some time to nurture yourself.
We end the month with a powerful New Moon in Virgo on 8/30. Take a chance on life, on something new and different. Break free from old patterns. Choose to look at the things that keep you stuck. Change. Grow. Love with everything in you.
August is the final part of summer. Enjoy the Fire Element, as we bring this season to a close. May it bring all of you the best of the Fire Element, laughter, joy, spontaneity, fun, and love. Blessings, Reverend Judith Star-Medicine
