Venus and Neptune connect today. This astrological placement brings with it a breath of fresh air, a boost in energy and a drive to begin new projects. The vibe is notoriously creative and paranoid, so try not to be snippy with the people you’re closest to (especially bae).
Mars also forms an aspect to Saturn, making it a great day to advocate for yourself. Use this energy to close deals, propose new projects and shine in the communication realm. You should feel great about the things you’re talking about today, and your confidence will probably get a nice little boost as well. It’s a great time to discuss creative endeavors. Just keep your ego in check so you don’t end up coming off as arrogant. Ask for a raise and stand up for yourself at work. This square offers the potential for significant achievement. The scale of events is large and precipitous, encouraging gatherings, either social or organizational. Groundwork may be laid for major group effort but may just as easily be focused on lighter interactions — mingling — where connections are made for further exploration. Compassion and insight offer a great deal of progress here if we can tame the undercurrents of impatience, selfish impulsiveness, or indiscretion that may surface. Despite some pitfalls, today provides a marvelous basis for creative exploration and investigation.
A major plus of the day is that people will be interested in what you have to say and believe in your point of view, so be sure to work it and don’t hold back! It should be a highly productive day, especially if you can stay focused. This energy likes to bounce around and can sometimes get a little scattered, so it would be wise to keep a checklist so you can stay on task.

22 | Dragonfly Spirit | Truth transcends illusion.
Dragonfly Spirit is here to remind you of the wisdom and truth available at all times in the hidden realms. Just as a dragonfly y catches your eye with its reflective wings and body, Dragonfly Spirit appears to tell you to pay attention to the truth beyond the illusion and recognize the insights that come seemingly out of nowhere, peeking through from behind the veil.
In the realm of Spirit, there is far more wisdom than you can perceive with your senses, and there is a deep knowing that you are not separate or alone, for a Higher Power recognizes you and loves you beyond measure. Fears dissipate as you realize you are embraced by the nurturing force that is everywhere, always in communication with you.
Alighting when you are preoccupied, Dragonfly Spirit offers this message: You exist in unity with all, including the protective spirits who share their wisdom, and you are being nudged along the path your soul needs to travel to have the experiences it craves.
Love exists in many forms, and sometimes we overlook it when we don’t recognize a particular form. Pay attention to the signs now; they remind you that each of us have inspired dreams seamlessly sewn into the fabric of the invisible world, and there is a Great Consciousness that exists in the seemingly empty spaces, guiding us on our journey.
Open to the truth, letting the wisdom of the hidden realms inform you, providing insights your conscious mind overlooks.
2022 LUNAR CALENDAR
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.
