Like last month, our New SolLunar Cycle begins at the tail end of one sign, sidereal Leo, and quickly shifts into Virgo, cosmically helping us initiate and integrate newly hatched creative desires via grounded discerning actions.The encouraging trine to Uranus in Aries — be experimental, take a risk — adds another note of excitement or shock to the upcoming monthly mix. Three more events bring forward momentum and possibilities in the upcoming four weeks. In a cool move, Mercury in Leo turns direct the day after New Moon on September 15, Venus in Cancer completes her retrograde shadow period on October 7 and Pluto turns direct on October 10. May you harass the inner power and joy of this New Moon~

Our New SolLunar Cycle begins at the tail end of sidereal Cancer and quickly shifts into Leo. The nature of this cusp marks major transitions that help us move into our next home literally (like I just did!) or choose a more authentic expression of our true nature — the home of Self. It is aligned with stars that nudge us to leave safe nests we may have outgrown, including ways of being, and venture forth, discovering new paths with courage and vision.
Also during the next four weeks, Mercury turns retrograde on August 23, Uranus turns retrograde on August 28, Venus turns direct on September 3 just as Jupiter is turning retrograde on September 4. Wow, those are a lot of major shifts! May you enjoy the dynamic month ahead…
Our New SolLunar Cycle in sidereal Cancer is linked to two evolutionary planets of Pluto — physical transformation — and Neptune — spiritual evolution. This four-week period encourages us to leave behind old comfort zones or habits that may be holding us back and explore new concepts of how to create stability, safety and connection within our communities of relationship. Also the meaning of this New SolLunar Cycle is deeply linked to Venus — a planet aligned with the Emerald — turning retrograde as she does every eighteen months on July 22 – September 3. Venus governs the heart chakra, helping us know and live our deeper loves and longings. The retrograde period is a chance to reevaluate our relationships including the one we have with ourselves, and to revitalize and reinvigorate our lives with what brings us joy. And lastly, the Full Moon is on the same day as Lammas, marking the halfway point between the Summer Solstice and the upcoming Autumnal Equinox. A blessing…
