Sun in Cancer & Cancer Rising

The annual Leo New Moon might see you crawling back into your cave this year on August 1st. It’s your once-in-12-month moment to pull back from too much interaction, self-reflect and find the inner guru to guide you through any potential storms.

New Moons are all about taking a moment to set fresh intentions for the year ahead. This means being able to take a moment to stand alone and plumb your seemingly endless depths. It’s a renewal point for you, and you need space to find your truth. But don’t stay in navel-gazing mode too long. Make a wish or ignite a dream on August 1st and/or 7th (when the Sun links up with Jupiter) to get the best from this month’s celestial synergies

Uranus and Venus feature heavily this month, implying a change from the status quo. In the mood to shake up your tendency to give too much, become too involved or get emotionally overwhelmed? August is optimal for achieving all that and more. Bust out of any dark mood and get real good at finding the light within. To do this you may need get out of your usual haunts. Perhaps try self-centering in nature this year? 

Mercury also turns direct about now (thanks the gods!) freeing all of us from tedious tech challenges, communication ‘isssues’ and a general feeling of WTF??!!? The endless back and forth that seemed to feature heavily through July is now officially over. You can back to being your warm and loving Bestest Self.
