August 2019 Newsletter
August begins in the wake of a Leo New Moon, as the Lion leads us toward more heart-centered and joyful times. We’re finally closing the eclipse portal, ending an acute period of emotional and karmic compression.
At the same time Mercury has stationed direct. The important work we’ve been doing in looking back and unpacking old traumas and patterns, is now transforming into creative action.
This month, we’re learning to fall in love with life and each other all over again. We’re finding that facing our fears and discomfort does not negate laughter, artistic expression, or sensual pleasure. It can even lead to greater intimacy, healing, and connection as we un-repress ourselves and undo harmful conditioning. Softening our hearts, we’re ready to step into the bright Leo Sun, relishing in creating a whole new paradigm.

July is a powerful month of emotional saturation, change, and catharsis. Eclipse season arrives along Cancer-Capricorn axis, while Mercury retrograde begins in between the two eclipses. We have the chance now to break free of long-standing ruts, establishing better circumstances for our hearts to open, and for our relationships to deepen and mature. Safety, vulnerability, and introspection are key this month, as we retreat to feel our tenderness, making room to review old traumas and stories so they can heal. We’re upending patriarchy while strengthening our inner feminine—finally learning that emotions are sources of strength, not something to fear or repress. As we do our work and break out from the status quo, and from harmful parental and societal conditioning, we can work together to create a more compassionate world. We can make room to listen to each other, and to allow other perspectives to permeate our hearts. Empathy can take hold as we connect to each other with greater intimacy, fulfillment, and care.
Floating in warm waves, may we relax into safety, allowing our hearts to heal and open wider. May we feel our roots strengthen as we prepare for welcome change, and for higher frequencies to lead us to new selves and a whole new paradigm.
