There’s a little edginess to this month. Read on for more information. The healing energy theme for August:
Rejuvenating through rest
Expressing from the heart
Tuning into your creative force
Integrate new awareness
The Essence of August
Feeling blocked? Or not feeling it? The Turkey Bush Flower Essence is awesome if you’re feeling any kind of block. This is the essence for you. It opens the mind and the inner creative.
It helps you to connect with your inner voice. The voice that never goes away. It helps to clear the mind and listen to this creative essence.
August is a month to release and integrate the changes the current eclipse season has revealed.
If you’re still unsure …. get creative. With the sun in the archetype of Leo, this is the perfect time.
The sign for creative expression.
Don’t be afraid to take creative risks, show another side of you. Who you are and what you’re capable of. Speak from the heart of you.
I am such a believer in the creative force. There’s a space you can settle into and find inner harmony. Whether it’s through painting, writing, knitting or gardening. The inner silence allows true inspiration to arise.
The Vibe of August
The energy of the month has a dynamic mix. We’ll begin to see some forward movement at the end of the month. There are still 6 planets retrograde. So may feel like your treading water for sometime yet. Trust your intuition on all counts. This is the inner compass forward.
You may’ve been going deep into your muddy waters or forced to confront some old angst. Breakthroughs could occur during the beginning of this month. A carry over from June/July. Trust the process. The theme is patience (yes still) and if this is not natural to you. Dig deep.
You may’ve been feeling somewhat sensitive. The full moon was magnifying deep. It is eclipse season after all.
Lifting out and exposing old personal dynamics. Lifting out and exposing generational patterning. Healing the inner child may’ve also been apparent. Moving into the past to move forward in the present. What you can no longer identify with lifts.
Repressed anger released. Dynamics shifted. Awareness of what’s real is exposed.
What makes you tick? What do you need to be a whole integrated human being? Emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually.? What makes you shine?
Mercury retrograded two days before the July full moon eclipse. Another invitation to reset, review, re-elevate, revisit. This will be playing out through the entire month of August.
If you come against any resistance listen and take a step back.
During Mercury Retrograde, things slow down and we are given the opportunity to look back over things that we may have missed. Things from our past may come to our attention, and we may receive more insights or information to help piece together events in our lives.
…. Under this energy our subconscious mind also becomes more active, and we are able to become aware of thought patterns or blockages that we may not have realized before. This makes it the perfect time to meditate and delve into the deeper parts of our soul.
Forewarned is forearmed.
Mercury the trickster is always a bugga. Be mindful and double check everything. Observe over the next few weeks. Aim to Simplify.
The New Moon August 11th
With the new moon on the 11th. Bring out the fun and play factor. This is a creative time. Tune in and express those talents that are unique to you. See and be seen.
If you’re facing resistance. Notice what your internal dialogue saying? Do you have huge expectations? Of yourself and others?
I was reminded about this lately. You can only do so much within a certain time frame. Sometimes it’s ok to cut yourself a bit of slack. Prioritise to empower.
Sometimes simply admitting to yourself things are or are not working. A shift and change in perspective can change the course of your life. In an instant. Perspective is key.
Perfect to acknowledge where changes need to be made, especially internally. This is where your power resides.
There’s a strong sense of alchemy on this New moon on the 11th. There’s something to integrate and discover. You could get a glimpse of a new life direction. Transformation can catapult you forward. All to fulfil your needs. Especially if you’ve felt tested over the last few months.
Over the last few weeks I have felt the torrent of “the change”. My body and identity are shifting deeply and profoundly. My home is being renovated. This is incredibly symbolic.
As I stand in my half-built kitchen I feel the peace that resides here. It’s been a long time in the making. A lot needed to shift before I could see this manifested. A lot of challenging inner and outer work. Now it’s here. The evolvement continues.
Life is a constant juggle of change. Either way, you’re always ascending upward in the spiral of life.
This spiral has not been easy. I felt the ping of this just the other day. I said to my husband in a hormonal shift through tears and a hot flush. “Will you still love me?” my sense of value and worth have been challenged through this deep inner change. Menopause. We’ve been married 14 years. The swing of hormones. I felt so deeply insecure and sensitive.
With a small giggle and a gentle touch across my cheek he said, “Of course I will” and then reached across and gave me the biggest hug. “It’s time to birth something else” he added. Through the tears I squeezed him tight. I let go and surrendered. My identity changing. Forever. Moving into the Wise Sage phase of my life.
My beliefs around being a woman are transforming into something completely different. Embracing this in stages. It is a natural initiation.
With that, and our home transitioning into something pretty amazing. My creative force bedded down to move through the physical, emotional and spiritual changes. There’s been so much unease. Nothing to hold onto – the house, home, heart and body all shifting at once. Even my work is changing. More on that in the coming weeks.
I’ve been leaning on bodywork, flower essences, tissue salts and slowing life’s pace so I could hear and feel what’s needing attention. It’s been a really strong time. I’ve taken advantage of this shift and allowed this to flow. It’s been incredibly insightful and productive.
Internal shifts and outer changes are occurring for many of us. Getting grounded is key. Taking one day at a time. Surrendering gives relief. There’s no such thing as being in control.
Through these changing times my inner wise soul created something I’ve longed to express. My very own flower essence range. I’m so excited. This is a new pathway for me. Something I have envisioned for a long time. There was no holding back. They are here ready to spread their flowery light to us all.
The first will be released at the end of this month. 25th August to be exact.
There’s a new energy abound. I know in my bones I’m on purpose and on point. When you know, you know.
The August Full Moon is on the 26th. With Mercury ending its retrograde cycles prior to this Full Moon. And Mars moving forward just after. There will be a huge impetuous to move forward.
A full moon in compassionate Archetype of Pisces. From here things will start to settle. If you’ve felt tired through this phase, feelings of lethargy will start to lift. There’s a secure feeling with this moon. Harmonious flow could be felt. Magic could be in the air. Intuition heightened. All things heart and soul will be magnified. Take it easy around this time.
Simple visualisation can help you tune into what you want to manifest what you what to create. Feeling it, and inwardly expecting it to happen gives it the power to seed and grow.
It starts with an inner push forward. It’s start with a thought. It all starts within.
“To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.” – Anatole France
