Happy August! We are in the peak of Summer in the Northern hemisphere. It’s Leo Season and since the Sun is the ruler of Leo, this month’s energy feels fitting. We’ll be thinking about Leo ruled themes like self-esteem, creative potential, our willingness to be vulnerable, and how we can self-disclose for meaningful relationships.
If these are new and/or topics you’d like to integrate further, the New Moon in Leo on August 8th is your moment to bring your ideas, intentions, and strategies to the Universe. Interestingly, the New Moon coincides perfectly with the spiritual significance of August 8th’s Lion’s Gate. According to legend, the Lion’s Gate is 8-8, August 8th, and a portal of sorts where we can access the highest wisdom of Leo. The New Moon obviously doesn’t always fall on August 8th, so one can’t help but wonder if there’s no such thing as coincidence?
Two weeks later, the second Full Moon in Aquarius bookends the first one from July 23. Now this Full Moon is a “Blue Moon” and if you know the saying “…once in a Blue Moon” you understand its significance. Every 2.5 years, there’s two Full Moons in the same sign, and so August 22nd’s Blue Moon in Aquarius is timely given it’s topics like beloved community, shared humanity, our social landscapes, and how we find belonging with others while sometimes having to stand alone.
A few hours later, the Sun enters Virgo and begins a back-to-school vibe in the zodiac until September 22nd. We’ll be strategizing ways for cognitive routine, focus/concentration, thinking deeply, critically, and other methods that can proactively set us up for success in the long term. If you’ve been meaning to try and commit to a particular practice which has evidence-based support for its success, Virgo Season is the season to get started.
