As we begin the first week of exhaling and releasing the tension, the new moon in Leo appears on the 8th of August and allows us a brand new beginning. This is the highlight of Leo season, when Leo energy is officially at its highest in the year of 2021. There is a greater focus on the self — how you express yourself, how you appear to the world, and what gifts you have to share with the world. On this day, you may decide to create a deep shift in your personality. Maybe it’s time for you to become another person — perhaps your whole life, you’ve always thought of yourself as a follower, and now it’s time to twist the narrative and make yourself a leader. Or, perhaps it’s time for you to take on a whole new wardrobe, a new style, maybe even change the way you speak.
Around the 11th, you could have an important discussion regarding data and analytics, most likely at your workplace, or possibly with a doctor regarding your health. Mid-August, you are really feeling the love with Venus traveling to Libra — a very harmonious placement, as Libra is ruled by Venus. You and your lover are seeing eye to eye. Thoughts and discussions of marriage could come up, and those who are already married could experience a boost in your partnership.
With Uranus going retrograde on the 19th, there is sure to be some major shakeup around this day. It’s not so much that the world around you will change, but your perspective, and how you perceive the world, is bound to shift. You could find out something that your intuition has been telling you for a while, but is now finally confirmed. While Uranus is moving direct, the world is quite a strange place — but when it turns retrograde, things you would typically label as “weird” or “confusing” somehow become acceptable. From now until January 2022, you will feel a new sense of normal.
On the 22nd, the full moon in Aquarius brings energy that is completely opposite of Leo — just as we step into Virgo season and wave Leo season goodbye. Instead of thinking of ourselves, we’re thinking about each other at this time. Whatever personally shift you have crafted at the start of August, you are now ready to share with and contribute to the world. This is sure to be an extremely social day. Use this energy towards charity work, a community project, or a team event.
Finally, August concludes with a significant conversation — many of you with a lover or husband/wife, and many of you with a lawyer or someone involved with the law. This is a great day for having a healthy debate with someone, as you are sure to both see one another’s perspective from a detached mindset. Arguments could be solved with ease.
