The Sun has entered the sign of LEO
The fiery sign of LEO has an inside track on love, power and the universe. One of the best routes you can take is heart-focused meditation. Anything you can do to enhance the purity of your ideas and creativity will bring you rewards. Developing and using your creative abilities creates an energy flow within you that triggers that same flow to others when they encounter the work you have done. Music, acting and temporal forms of artistic expression that involve an audience as you create, brings you an especially potent technique. Engaging in sports activities brings joy and enthusiasm and at its best, brings playfulness to both spectators and players. Taking on a leadership role will challenge you to bring forth your best, Leo. Working and playing with children can also trigger spontaneity within for the benefit of everyone involved. Children respond the best when someone is able to touch their minds and hearts to draw them out. Their relative openness, especially when young, will allow you to open your heart as well. No matter what you do, if you realize that by giving to others you give to and improve yourself, you will always be on the right track.
2019 - The Spotlight is on Your Home
In August the spotlight is on your home, pleasures, loved ones, and creativity. With the Sun in Leo for the first three weeks, you just want to be yourself, and do the things you enjoy. Recreation does not have to be expensive. Life's simple pleasures, such as sunsets, a loved one's smile, a stroll through the park with your partner or bestie, or playing with your pet can be joyful and create lasting, wonderful memories.
A stimulating alignment linking the August 6th New Moon in Leo with Uranus invites you to express yourself through love, games, creative activities, or entertaining during the few weeks that follow. Mercury in Leo, August 8th through the 22nd, adds to the fun, and puts you in a romantic, frisky, playful frame of mind.
The August 20th Full Moon in Aquarius provides a positive influence that extends into the next two weeks. You can spend time with friends or pursue goals. As August advances, several challenging planetary alignments may find you struggling with current laws, rules, and regulations. You usually resent being told what to do.
Mars spends most of August in Cancer where Jupiter is briefly passing through as well. This combination of planetary influences can ignite or amplify emotions. Mars is a water sign can trigger steamy emotional scenes and heated arguments.
It's okay now, take a deep breath, because when Mars moves into Leo on August 27th, you can let loose and enjoy life. This transit takes you through the Fall Equinox given you enough time to do a creative job, go on vacation, or get closer to your partner and loved ones. Be careful not to take any unnecessary risks.

All that will change at month's end when you could earn a raise, bonus, or promotion, and/or receive a long-awaited payment or settlement.

ANIMAL: THE BUTTERFLY
In the morning light
You have known many forms
Before you e'er took flight.
The power that the butterfly brings us is akin to air. It is the mind, and the ability to know the mind or to change it. It is the art of transformation.
To use Butterfly medicine, you must astutely observe your position in the cycle of self-transformation. Like Butterfly, we are always at a certain stage of our soul growth and life activities. You may be at the egg stage, which is the beginning of all things. This is the stage in which an idea is born, but has not yet come into form. The larva stage is when you decide to create this idea and bring it into form in the physical world. The cocoon stage involves going within , doing or developing your project or idea, or changing an aspect of your personality. The final stage of transformation is leaving the chrysalis and emerging through birth. This last step involves sharing the colors and joy of your creation with the world.
If you look closely at what butterfly is trying to teach, you will realize that it is a never-ending cycle of self-transformation.
The way to determine where you are in this cycle is to ask yourself:
- Is this the egg stage? Is it just a thought or idea?
- Is this the larva stage? Do I need to make a decision?
- Is this the cocoon stage? Am I developing and doing something to make my idea a reality?
- Is this the birth stage? Am I sharing my complete idea?
By asking yourself these questions, you will discover how Butterfly is relating to you at this moment. When you understand where you are, the symbol can teach you what to do next to continue in your cycle of self-transformation. If you have found the position though which you are cycling, you will see the creativity of the Butterfly.
Using the air, or mental powers of this medicine is done with ease. As an example, if you have been feeling exhausted and have asked how to heal your fatigue, take notice of the colors to which you have been drawn to lately. Does your body feel better in green? Could this mean that you need to eat more green vegetables, or improve your career skills to earn more money? This type of awareness is an inspiration from Butterfly medicine.
Butterfly can give clarity to your mental process and help you to organize the project you are undertaking, as well as assist you in finding the next step for your personal life or career. The main message to be obtained during the time of the Leo energies is that you are ready to undergo some type of transformation.
Allow the change to come. Butterfly represents courage, which is always needed to change your reality or complete any creativity process. It is a totally different world outside of the cocoon, where the known realities of the chrysalis no longer apply. Let go of the past and begin to spread your wings. The new world you have entered demands that you use your new-found wings and fly!

RUNE of the Month - ANSUZ
ANSUZ — Signals
ANSUZ is the first of the twelve Runes that make up the Cycle of Self-Transformation. These Runes focus directly upon the mechanism of self-change. The keynote in August of 2019 is receiving: messages, signals, gifts. Even a timely warning may be seen as a gift. When the Messenger Rune brings us sacred knowledge, one is truly blessed.
The message may be that of a new life unfolding. New lives begin with new connections, surprising linkages that direct us to new pathways. Take pains to be especially aware and conscious during meetings, visits, chance encounters, particularly with persons wiser than yourself. A sense of new family solidarity invests Ansuz.
Through association with the Norse god Loki, Mercury overshadows this Rune. In mythology a strange, androgynous figure, keeper of the keys of knowledge, Mercury carried messages between the gods and between gods and humanity. In him is symbolized the urge to integrate unconscious motive with conscious recognition. This Rune is the focus for August 2019, telling us that the connection with the Divine is at hand.
Signals - the Ansuz Rune - brings a sign to explore the depths, the foundations of life, and to experience the inexhaustible wellspring of the Divine in your nature. You are reminded that you must draw first from the well to nourish and give to yourself. Then there will be more than enough to nourish others.
You may well be concerned over what appears to be failed communication, lack of clarity or awareness, either in your past history or in a present situation. Equally, you may feel concern because of difficulties that inhibit you from accepting what is being offered. Then again, a sense of futility, of wasted motion, of a fruitless journey, may dismay you. Remember, however, that this is one of the Cycle (karma) Runes. What happens in your life this August is timely in your life process. If the well is clogged, this is the month to clear out the waste. Make your decisions and go forward without fear. Trust the Universe to put you in the right direction. Everything will settle by Summer's end.
Don't be afraid to make the leap or take the chance.

Although you may like the poking around, some memories and feelings are deeply painful and difficult. Don’t dwell on them. Honor them and let them go. Just love the experiences with all of your heart, as you usually do, and carry on.
