August 2023 Astrological Events. The Month of Transformation & Miracles.

August features two Full Super Moons, one at the beginning and another at the end, both gracing the humanitarian signs of Aquarius and Pisces. This creates an ideal cosmic opportunity to connect, belong, and even embark on an inner journey of self-discovery.

The first Super Moon on the 1st has its origins in the initial New Moon of 2023, which also occurred in Aquarius on January 21st. The seeds sown during that time are now bearing fruit. What were your aspirations and visions for the year? How did you envision your journey unfolding? Reflect on the limitless possibilities that await you.

Aquarius embodies the true essence of a Utopian, embracing a future-oriented mindset filled with hope and faith. The Star card in the Tarot serves as a powerful conduit to tap into the captivating energy of this magical Full Moon.

On August 16th, a heart-centered New Moon blossoms in the passionate and expressive sign of Leo, igniting a sense of excitement. Aligned with Venus, who, while still retrograde, has risen as the Morning Star, this jubilant lunation signifies triumph over transformative experiences. Although Venus has yet to regain direct motion, the cosmic energy begins to uplift, beckoning us to embrace what brings joy to our souls. Remember, Leo embodies the inner child within us all, a playful and blissful spirit that persists despite life's challenges.

Thus, the intentions we set during this magnificent lunation should be to ignite something that allows us to express the Inner Child, unleash our sacred and precious creativity, and embody our most Authentic Self. The Sun shines particularly strong in the sign of Leo, where he holds rulership, empowering La Luna to radiate brightly as a compelling reflection of this brilliant Luminary.

Throughout Virgo season starting from August 23rd, prepare to be exhilarated by people exhibiting an eagle eye for detail and possessing a strong sense of discrimination. Intellectual capabilities will be heightened, and many will find themselves naturally drawn to analytical thinking and problem-solving. Loyalty, honesty, and unwavering dedication to their chosen professions will serve as defining characteristics for those captivated by this Virgo energy.

Virgo Season fosters the pursuit of harmony through meaningful and purposeful endeavors, especially when it comes to helping others. Engaging in tasks that serve a greater purpose brings a profound sense of fulfillment. Despite their outward appearance of emotional reserve and composure, individuals will exhibit a kind-hearted nature and a sincere desire to be of service to others, which is genuinely appreciated.

Additionally, Mercury Retrograde in Virgo, starting from August 23rd, initiates a period of intense introspection and reevaluation. As the planet of communication and intellect goes retrograde in its ruling sign, there will be a heightened focus on details and a strong desire for perfecting methods and approaches. During this time, occasional misunderstandings and miscommunications may arise, prompting us to review our communication styles and ensure clarity in our interactions. This retrograde phase also encourages us to revisit past projects or unresolved matters, offering an excellent opportunity for refinement and improvement. While the energy may feel intense, embracing the organizational and analytical qualities of Virgo can help navigate this period effectively and utilize it as a time of tremendous growth and self-discovery. It is important to exercise patience, engage in introspection, and remain open to adjusting plans as needed. This exciting phase holds immense potential for personal development and transformation.

Mars, notorious as the warrior planet, undergoes a notable shift from practical Virgo to diplomatic Libra on August 27th. However, it is important to note that Mars does not find Libra the most comfortable abode. As a charismatic and people-pleasing sign, Libra presents challenges for Mars, a planet associated with war and action. This discrepancy has the potential to disrupt our inner equilibrium, leaving us feeling unbalanced. Nevertheless, this astral placement is highly favorable for peacemakers and justice warriors alike, as it nurtures a deep yearning for equality, balance, and fairness. Throughout Mars' journey through Libra, these values take on heightened significance for all. However, it is vital that we discover methods to uphold these principles without neglecting our personal well-being or succumbing to procrastination.

During Uranus retrograde from August 28th, individuals have a rare opportunity to cultivate an abundance mindset and overcome feelings of lack. As Uranus is associated with innovation and liberation, this period encourages introspection and breaking free from limiting beliefs about scarcity and limitations. The retrograde motion prompts individuals to reevaluate their relationship with resources and realize that abundance can be found within and through a shift in perception. By embracing change and unlocking their unique potential, people can tap into their creative abilities and discover innovative solutions to challenges, fostering a sense of abundance and empowerment. This astrological phase acts as a catalyst for liberation from scarcity thinking and embracing a mindset of limitless possibilities and abundance in all aspects of life.

August commenced with a Full Moon in the objective, humanitarian Aquarius and culminates in a compassionate, sensitive Full Moon in Pisces on August 30th. These two signs, despite their elemental differences, unite in their common goal – to support, serve, and uplift. Socially conscious and kindhearted, these lunations shed light on areas where we can practice greater altruism, both towards ourselves and others. Becoming the Bodhisattvas of our inner world during this Full Moon is crucial. Developing empathy towards all our parts is non-negotiable.

Pisces, as the final sign of the zodiac, embodies the captivating surrender to the great unknown, merging with the vast and divine. Aquarius, on the other hand, has made significant strides in serving humanity through its wisdom and knowledge. Now is the opportune moment to release everything and wholeheartedly unite with the vast expanse of existence. We must trust deeply, free-falling into the enigmatic void, secure in the belief that we will be held. Therefore, should we encounter closed doors during this Full Moon - a time of liberation - it is paramount that we embrace their closure with grace.
