It’s so enriching to live in conscious awareness of the changing of the seasons. Just hours after the Full moon of August 22nd the Sun moved into Virgo.
Now, on the 24th, we are truly into the seasonal change.
Virgo is a season of renewal and replenishment – a time to refine your body and renew your connection to the earth.
And, perfectly in sync with the season, I’m so grateful to be spending this week on a lake in Maine, in a cabin with amazing sunset views.
Virgo Season: The Misunderstood Virgo…
it’s a misnomer to think of Virgo as the Westernized ‘virgin’. Rather, Virgo is more about the archetypal journey to wisdom; how we grow (up) and mature in the ways of Mother Earth.
‘Virginal’ as related to Virgo also refers to the concept of purity and cleansing, things the sign Virgo is notoriously known for!
Did you know that the symbol for Virgo stylistically shows a goddess holding a stalk of grain?
That’s because, at the beginning of Virgo season, farmers in the Northern hemisphere prepare for harvest time, while in the Southern hemisphere, they prepare their fields for planting!
History is rich with myths surrounding the season of Virgo. In ancient Egypt, the Virgo goddess was Isis and her Sun-child Horus. The ancient Egyptians revered Isis for her magical powers and her ability to protect one from enemies.
The wisdom teaching of Kabbalah explains that Virgo is a time of repentance and taking responsibility for our own actions. And, that you do not have to carry the weight of the world; just be accountable for your own actions, but not the actions of others.
Symbolically, as you examine or purify (or ‘cleanse’) yourself in the Virgo season, you are contributing to the betterment of the entire world.
Thinking of you and sending blessings in this sacred season.

So far, it’s been an exciting month, right? And it’s about to get more exciting since it’s Moon in Aquarius full moon on August 22nd.
We’ve been together through the harvest festival day of Lammas (August 1st), followed by some planetary action, notably from the enigmatic Uranus and the delightful Venus.
Now it’s time to talk about the 2nd Aquarius Full moon of 2021!
Each of the 12 zodiac signs (Aries, Taurus, Gemini, etc.) all have 30 degrees.
One of the inner workings of astrology is thatthe higher the degree, the deeper the evolution of the sign. For example, the spiritual lessons of 0 – 9 degrees of Aquarius are different than the lessons of 20 – 29 degrees.
At the lower degrees, the lessons of that particular sign will be less advanced and as the degree increases, so does the sophistication of the lesson.
This week’s Full moon is at a whopping 29 degrees Aquarius! Therefore, the height of what Aquarius teaches us is what we must learn and demonstrate.
So what does the water bearer have to teach us?
Spiritual and Intellectual Maturity
During this full Moon, the Universe is saying “get it together, humans!” It’s time to give more than just lip service to all that Aquarius stands for:
Thinking outside the box
Intelligence (Aquarius) leading to, and coming from, Heart (Pisces)
The Aquarian Vision
The ultimate homage of Aquarius is true wisdom. Each zodiac sign has its own unique motto which helps to clarify its character. For example, Aries is “I am”, Taurus is “I have”. For Aquarius, it’s “I know”
Acting on what we know will be key during this Full Aquarius Moon! We need to working together to create a world where people think and care about the welfare of other people and all of life.
Aquarius says you are a Divine being with a stellar mind, and you can use that mind to envision a world living within a Higher Order.
The world we live in was and continues to be born out of chaos, but through the patterns of sacred geometry, it finds order.
Even your DNA is evolving, but with a pattern that has manifested all that is.
Sending my love and gratitude, and honor of YOU – Blessed One.
Venus will be igniting creativity and inspiration, which will be keeping with last weeks’ theme of “Waking up”.
This starts on Monday, August 9th, with Venus and Neptune admiring each other.
Venus in Virgo and Neptune in Pisces is like two dance partners sizing up the other from across the room and saying ‘YES!’. And they become matched, like two peas in a pod, or two birds of a feather… perhaps even more.
With this placement, the key is to put less focus on your romance and more on self-care!
That’s why it’s a great time to try things associated with Venus, such as new styles of hair, fashion, or makeup. Music, dancing, art, or going to the movies is also a great way to add more glamour to your life.
Continuing with the ‘no-drama zone’ astrology forecast, Venus in Virgo next interacts with Pluto in Capricorn via another trine on August 11th.
Now, THIS is a great time for romance! Thanks to your increased desire for love and affection. So make room for romance and more dating during this period.
Although Pluto has a fearsome reputation, the truth is Pluto is amenable to whatever planet he is mingling with! So this will be true when it mingles with Venus, it will still boost your creativity and inspiration!
– Pluto and Saturn mean challenging lessons.
– Pluto and Jupiter means great opportunities for growth and prosperity
– Pluto and Mercury means respect and impact of ideas
So during this period, there will be artistry, empathy for others, and positive transformation of values!
So there you have it! That’s why and how Venus will be Igniting Creativity & Inspiration this week!
The Leo New moon of August 8th set a template for your future, and Venus is filling it nicely.
Hold on to your most positive vision and know that your creativity and inspiration will serve you to manifest exactly what you want and more!
This week as the moon waxes, leading up to the Aquarius full moon of July 23rd, your energy and potential for positive change is also growing.
Remember that these planets are now moving out of a mystical configuration called the Yod, aka ‘Hand of God’. Mars, in Leo until July 29th is holding the energetic template.
This week continues the theme of ‘adjustment’ through the activities of Venus, Mars, Neptune, and Pluto.
Venus leads the way when she changes signs and moves into Virgo on Wednesday, July 21. And next, Mars is inconjunct Neptune on July 18th and inconjunct Pluto on July 22nd.
Mars says: Hang in there and go the distance You may have to overcome discouragement and even lack of energy Pace yourself and finalize the issue at hand.
This is a time to compromise and listen to others. And, it’s a prime time for personal growth; your ideas may just be enhanced by input from others.
So, how do you get ‘into the flow’?
Aquarius full moon is a unique and mystical time. The very word ‘Mystical’ speaks to unseen forces that come from the Spiritual realm rather than the material world. However, these off-balance aspects have handed you a vehicle to materialize the Hand of God, or the spiritual world.
Mysticism moves you outside of Time and Space. Welcome this time as a unique opportunity to step into a new paradigm as you make peace with all that is.

The world awaits the the Cancer New Moon of July 9th. And, Venus in Leo is here to help pave the way.
We have weathered the early stresses of Mars, Saturn, and Uranus (note, the underwater fire burning in the Gulf of Mexico was an apt expression of this planetary event) and Venus is sitting pretty in Leo now.
It’s nice to see the conversation shift to Venus, a planet that speaks to the nicer parts of life.
Venus is in Leo until July 21st, and she has plenty to say in this fixed fire realm.
Venus is here to bring joy back into your life. But, first, Venus moves into position to soothe the stand-off between Saturn and Uranus.
Last week Mars moved in to do the heavy demolition (Mars opposing Saturn on July 1 and Mars square Uranus on July 3).
This week the action evolves with Venus opposing Saturn on July 6, and Venus square Uranus on July 8th.
As the moon decreases this week, winding down to the Cancer New Moon on July 9th, Venus pours a soothing balm to that which was broken apart by Mars.
If you heart was broken, recently, or in the past, Venus is here to help you heal.
* If you feel abandoned, Venus urges you to connect with others * When you feel ignored, Venus asks you to give gratitude * Do you feel unloved? Venus wants to open your heart
Venus is here to give you hope, and to remind you that there is a Higher order at this time on the earth.
In love and gratitude,
