In case you missed it here’s the breakdown for July 6th and 7th astrology.
Aug 6 Venus enters Libra
Venus returns home to the sign of Libra in the 7th house today until September 9th (the new moon in Virgo). This is a significant event as 6 is the number associated with Venus and Libra. I have two recommendations for today depending on where you are in your path. One way to take advantage of this energy is to practice a very nourishing form of self-care. By this I mean what is your secret guilty pleasure? Binge watching The Barefoot Contessa? Calling in sick to work to sleep in? Whatever you do that brings you the greatest pleasure, do that today with an energy of appreciation and thanks. This will greatly begin the shift of your energy over the next three days. If you have been focusing on manifesting your purpose,
Aug 7 Uranus in Taurus in Retrograde (Mercury in Leo, Pluto/ Saturn in Capricorn, Neptune in Pisces, Mars in Aquarius, and Chiron in Aries are in retrograde).
Our 7th planet has entered into retrograde today. Uranus in Taurus in the 12th house is now in retrograde signaling the beginning of a revolution of perspective. Think Alice in Wonderland’s Cheshire Cat “Can you stand on your head?”. How open are you to change? Today is a beautiful day to break from convention and take that chance that you’ve been working towards. As this is a time of retrograde, if the pieces aren’t already in place then today is the day to write the plan, do the research, and receive insight from the Universe so you can follow your dreams. Be open. The world is waiting for you.
After that we have the Lion’s Gate on Thursday, August 8th. At that time we have an opportunity to take advantage of a portal that allows us to access the unfiltered energy of Leo. Correlated with the infinity symbol, the number 8 symbolizes our strength to achieve our desires through a can do attitude and will alone. It is the Strength card in Tarot, a steadfast woman holding open the mouth of the lion, confident in her ability to handle the powerful animal (her internal and external desires).
When we align with the energy of the Lion’s Gate, we open ourselves to our true self. We remove the masks of our consciousness and dive directly into our spirit. Over the past few months you have cleanses, cleared, and refined your life, goals, and purpose. Although there is still work to be done you have the opportunity to use your will to move your desires from the astral to the material realms. The unending figure 8 symbolizes the connection between all realms and the flow of spirit/energy. Above all else we are timeless and our souls exist in eternity.
So how do we tap into this energy? If we look at Leo the Lion, the 8, and the energy of Summer we are called to the light. Spend time outside in the sun, meditate with a candle, use warming essential oils such as cardamon, clove, and ginger, eat foods that are light and full of water. Keep your heart light so that your spirit is able to soar unburdened into the space of creation. For what we enter during the Lion’s Gate is the 8th Gate. I have spoken of the 8th Gate often. Within that 8th gate, we are in a space of pure creation and freedom. True Sovereignty. This time correlates with the winter’s energy of reflection and shadow work through the underworld where we enter the 8th gate. Our divine masculine is now within the underworld entering the 8th gate through the light. During this Lion’s Gate we release our hold to attachments so that we are able to dream. So this is a powerful time for dream work, shaman journey’s and sound healing.
Dream wildly my loves. Leave what you do not need behind so that you can be the ruler of your being.
Much love to you all,
