The Scorpio moon shares an aspect with the sun in Leo this morning, giving us the gumption to get up and get moving. You should feel a burst of energy, and you might even wake up before the alarm goes off.
These good vibes continue into the afternoon as the moon aspects the South Node, relaxing hearts and minds. This aspect can create a playful atmosphere in relationships, and communication should come easily. While the conversation might be flowing, the discussions are likely to remain surface level.
Tonight, a minor aspect between the moon and Jupiter makes people aware of their personal boundaries, which you’re unlikely to break through. This aspect is also great for flirting. Just don’t cross any lines with your crush!
Carve some time out of your evening to catch up with friends. There are some big opportunities for healing the past. Show your friends that you’re there for them and you’ll realize that the feeling is mutual. Just make sure you take turns speaking and try to listen as much as you talk. Connecting with the people we care about helps us feel lighter, happier and more at peace.

3 | Armadillo Spirit | Set healthy boundaries.
Learning to set healthy boundaries is the gift of Armadillo Spirit. You are entering a phase where in order for you to be in alignment with your intentions and co-create your best life, you may have to be discerning and say no to many things that may have been okay for you in the past.
This also means that you need to learn where you end and where others begin, what is yours to own and what is not. Know your limits and understand that it’s an empowering choice to say no to what doesn’t feel right.
Armadillo Spirit is here to tell you it’s time to be honest with yourself about what you really want. Be clear on what you are agreeing to, declare what your needs are, and say no as a full sentence; these are acts of respect and kindness to others as well as to yourself. Trust your body’s signals, and you will know what to do.
Armadillo Spirit guides you in making good decisions that are grounded in a strong sense of what belongs to you and what does not.
2022 LUNAR CALENDAR
AUGUST 5: FIRST QUARTER MOON IN SCORPIO: Moon in Scorpio creates the need to delve into your feelings as deep as possible. You desire meaningful emotional exchanges now more than at any other time even if it is not easy and you are forced to change many things. Shallow relationships do not satisfy you, because they are not purifying enough.
AUGUST 12: FULL MOON IN AQUARIUS (STURGEON MOON): Your relationship with your emotions might be more complicated, because Moon in Aquarius has a strong need for emotional freedom. However, when you are in a group of people, it is easier for you to understand your feelings and free yourself from negative emotions such as fear, anger and jealousy.
AUGUST 19: LAST QUARTER MOON IN TAURUS: Your safety depends on the need for stability, which is not easy to satisfy now. You have to learn to accept change as part of your life. The basic problem is finding your own self-respect in order to ensure that you do not mistakenly seek it in material things. When you accept yourself for who you are, it will become easier for you to find peace and tranquility in the outside world.
AUGUST 27: NEW MOON IN VIRGO: Your feeling of safety is now related to order and clarity, even in emotions. You may have the need to organise everything chaotic and disorganized. Try being more tolerant and accept imperfections of life. It is better to trust life and let it run its own way, not everything must be according to our expectations.
