August looks to be a fairly low key month in many regards which you are no doubt relieved to hear. The beginning of this month you will experience loneliness and isolation but only temporarily for a day or two. Then New Moon in Leo will be on August 9 and bring with it the start of a new monthly cycle for you. One in which you begin to focus upon what it is you need to feel better about yourself. Then the Full Moon in Aquarius on August 22 will see a lot of personal growth and discovery with Mars trine to Uranus. This will give to the courage to break free from constricting circumstances or obligations which are no longer serving you. Especially now important prior to the testing which will come in September. On August 20, Uranus goes retrograde and with this then all the outer planets will once again be in retrograde motion as the Sun moves to its opposition point from the cluster of them. With Uranus retrograde you are once again reacquainted with a part of yourself you have been disconnected from since mid January 2021. This is an awakening of imperfection as sitting okay with you. Of the futility of insecurity. It helps you to let go of your own ego and listen to your higher self. Then on August 30 Mercury moves into Libra.
