Whatever is dearest to my heart provides me the inspiration to be truly myself.


The Mars and Venus energy combination brings you some rocky times along with planning and hard work.

On July 24th, the Sun is in Leo, the Moon in Aquarius, and in the heavens two opposite but compatable planets come together. Create your Vision Board and begin your inner visualizations now. Yes, loving Venus and hard working Mars will join up, ready and willing to fix you up with whatever you need. Your part in this potential, new energy is to imagine and create your wildest dreams, and know they are becoming a reality. Visualize your reality and picture it all unfolding, expect to see it, and welcome it into your life, very soon! Then give gratitude to the Divine for bringing it all to your feet.

This is a good time to move forward with matters ruled by Aquarius in your chart, as Saturn and Jupiter are in that sign, asking you to map out your future after all of the massive changes that have occurred in the past year. Accept what was is gone, and begin looking at the possibilities of what can be. What do you want to begin to manifest for 2022? Take a small step forward and watch for the landslide of courage and support that comes. Begin now!

May God grant me Health, Protection and Guidance

Sun over clouds

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.

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.

The August 24th Full Moon in Aquarius kicks up suspicion and intrigue. Steer clear of gossips looking to stir up trouble. There is a spirit of delusion and mental manipulation. If you insist on thinking the worst, you could bring it into reality.

On tiny Ant
Your patience grows,
Like the sands of time. 

Can I learn to be like you?
Or is it too sublime

 Ant can carry a leaf over hundreds of miles just to get it back to the anthill. Ants in Africa will strip a forest bare when food is scarce, if it takes a year. Ant’s medicine is the strategy of patience. Ant is a builder, like Beaver, is aggressive, like badger, has stamina like Elk, scrutiny like Mouse, and give-away  like Turkey.

Every Ant in an anthill is part of the ant’s group mind, as all of the ants work for the Queen Ant and the hive. Self-sacrifice is a part of Ant’s medicine.  Greater than Ant’s other medicines, however, is patience.

Ant people are active, community minded folks who see the greater future needs of their town. Ant people are planners, like Squirrel, and are content to see their dreams being built a little at a time. In today’s society, that is a rare quality.

In the desert, one type of Ant will burrow a conical hole with its apex at the bottom. The Ant will cover itself and patiently wait to see if  some unsuspecting insect will fall in. As the sand crumbles, the prey eventually falls to the bottom, only to find Ant’s open jaws. Patience does have its rewards!

Ant people have a knowing about the sweet victory at the end of the line. There is never a concern about going without if they are late to the opening of a sale. If what they want is sold out, they are certain that something equal or better will be available.

During the month of August, use your Ant medicine to go slowly and deliberately, content in knowing that what is yours will come to you. This knowing is good medicine. It shows a trust in that universe always provides.

Ant has come to represent the Leo energies of August 2021. It brings us a time to trust a little in some life situation. You may have forgotten that you will always receive that which you need, at the time you need it most. If it is not on the horizon, or just around the next anthill, you may need to use some strategy. How can you put to use your power of creation until it arrives, whatever “it” means to you at this time?

Ant is always working for the good of the whole. Are you? It is in harmony with the Rune of Wholeness. Be assured that if you are on the right track, the Universe always wants the best for you. Remember during this positive time that goodness will come and you will be provided for.

RUNE of the Month – ISA

ISA — Standstill, Withdrawal,
That Which Impedes — Ice

Isa represents the Rune that focus on the winter of the Spiritual part of life. You may find yourself entangled in a situation to whose implications you are, in effect, blind. You may be powerless to do anything except surrender, submit, even sacrifice some long-cherished desire. Be patient for this is the fallow period that precedes a rebirth

Positive accomplishment is unlikely now. There is a freeze on useful activity, as all of your plans are on hold. You may be experiencing an unaccustomed drain on your energy and wonder why. The chill wind is reaching you over the ice floes of old outmoded habits.

Trying to hold on can result in shallowness of feeling, a sense of being out of touch with life, out of phase. Seek to discover what it is that you are holding onto that keeps this condition in effect, and let it go. Shed, release and cleanse away the old. That will bring on the thaw. Usually Isa requires a sacrifice of the personal, the I.

Yet, there is no reason for anxiety. Submit and be still. What you are experiencing is not necessarily the result of your actions, your habits, but the conditions of the time, against which you can do nothing. What has been full must be empty. What has increased must decrease. This is the way of heaven and earth. To surrender is to display courage and wisdom.

During this time do not expect to rely on help or friendly support. Exercise caution in your isolation, and do not stubbornly persist in attempting to work your will. Remain mindful that the seed of the new is present in the shell of the old, the seed of unrealized potential, the seed of good. Your conduct now will bring the new fruit to ripeness, or cause it to rot on the vine. Trust your own process, your Blessed Higher Self and watch for the signs of Spring that eventually come.

Don’t be afraid to make the leap or take the chance.

Planetary Rule: 5th House/Sun Body: Heart

FOCUS: I share my world with those I love.




Aries (3/21 – 4/20)

August brings a need for a personal break; head out to the wide-open spaces, the mountains or your favorite beach resort. Your social life sparkles this month, Aries. Get engaged if you want to take your relationship to the next level. Discussions about raises and bonuses could be put on hold while Jupiter is retrograde. Don’t let it get you down. This could signal that it’s time to move on.


Taurus (4/21-5/21)

August opens substantial facts get underway in both business and the home arena. Be prepared to cancel transactions and arrangements, and don’t allow ant time to elapse once you know the truth. A greater than usual numbers of problems creep up during this month, and hasty choices are at the root of personal issues. Patience Taurus, September is likely the time when many issues get resolved.


Gemini (5/21-6/20)


In August, you’ll find that Uranus has been causing upsets in your 12th House of Secrets all year long. The edginess you’ve been feeling is a reality check. Sharing secrets prematurely leads to hurt feelings. Avoid sarcastic exchanges when irritations and annoying barbs creep in unnecessarily into your conversations. Smile and help smooth over conversations.


Cancer (6/21-7/22)

Diversification and reliability are the key words for August. With remote work becoming more popular, you may want to brush up on technical and well as communication protocol and skills. Seek opportunities that allow you to apply excellent strategies with team members across the globe. Expect some surprising, undisclosed expenses at month’s end.


Leo (7/23-8/22)

In August, deep discussions begin, starting with parents and grandparents. Also, friends seek you out for your wise council over dinner or perhaps even a weekend. Someone in your circle may need strength and support as they undergo a hospital procedure or surgery. You enjoy successful encounters with associates and one in particular may offer you an enticing job opportunity. Tension with your partner is possible at month’s end. Explore the facts before getting into a fight.


Virgo (8/23-9/22)

August brings a time for going to court or negotiating a settlement. Some Virgo’s will be scheduling diagnostic tests and planning surgery or medication for health conditions; who needs this when one should be lounging on the beach or boating on a lake?


Libra (9/23-10/22)

August begins with you working on your finances in order to enjoy your vacation plans. If you were planning on joining another couple, they may cancel due to unavoidable circumstances. All works out for the best since work has you staying a day or two longer to manage details before you can take off. You manage to turn the finances around and consolidate debt just in time for vacation, sun, and fun.


Scorpio (10/ 23-11/22)

August opens with conflicts and harsh words with romance and business partners. You’ll work out things when you dig behind the layers of stubbornness that prevents you from getting to the truth. You can mend fences romantically when you travel together on a part business trip/part vacation. You find that you need to lighten up Scorpio.


Sagittarius (11/23-12/21)

August brings a compatible Leo Sun, calling out to you to book a long-distance trip this month. An appealing deal is waiting when you arrive at your destination. Authorities at your workplace are high on praise of your talents and spread the word.  Kind word of mouth has always been a part of your success, Sag.


Capricorn (12/22-1/19)

August can bring a drain on your expenses, a delay in obtaining a loan, approval to travel, or money for education. Ride it out until clearer details emerge. The social side of your life heats up. Plan a nice dinner out with your partner, paving the way for pleasurable interludes. Disagreeable political discussions could be a part of the environment at month’s end when a group gathers at your home. Please use discretion.


Aquarius (1/20-2/18)

August doesn’t bring you the long vacation you desire because of pressing tasks that hinder your performance. You’re better off rescheduling an important meeting mid-month since you may not be prepared to discuss the agenda items due to pressing work deadlines. Schedule your vacation over the September Labor Day weekend when the energies favor your social life.


Pisces (2/19-3/20)

August brings stress in the aftermath of acquiring new duties at work resulting from unexpected personnel shifts. A mid-week date night is a solid hit with your significant other or someone new. Siblings or friends invite you on a mini-vacation long weekend before the children have to return to school. At work, new equipment and shared tools enhance innovative management practices. You may have a hand in organizing a “learning and training seminar” to bring everyone at work up to speed.
