Uranus in Taurus shares a harsh aspect with the Leo sun this morning, which could make for some big egos and stubborn behavior. People might rub you the wrong way, but try not to let it affect you. Watch out for insecurity as well. Don’t let other people’s actions have an effect on your self-worth.
On a more positive note, Mars forms a sextile with Neptune this afternoon, which can help lift our spirits and reconnect us with our optimism. This aspect also promotes good luck, so even though your ego might be challenged, lean into your gratitude and any opportunity to reap some serious rewards.
Neptune and the sun join the party through a minor aspect in the afternoon, adding a dreamy vibe to the day. On the one hand, we’ll be able to see some real beauty in the world if we look for it. On the other, there might be some struggles, and we could feel as though we’re not being seen clearly. People might resist or not believe in your ideas, dreams, goals or fantasies, but it’s better to keep moving toward the things that are important to you and follow your heart.
As we roll into the evening, it’s important to feel the emotions that can help you form deep connections with the people you care about. This aspect is also great for research and directing energy toward goals, so be sure to make the most of it.

37 | Lion Spirit | Be generous of spirit.
A healthy ego means you ease universal order instead of edging it out. Lion Spirit’s appearance is a reminder that you have been given the gift of pride and a healthy sense of your worth to express your divine, authentic self in a unique way.
You are both the king and the queen, secure in your prosperity and wisdom and generous of spirit as you help others. Take pride in your ability to serve from the heart. Contentment with what you have, right now, allows you to use your resources wisely as you give to others in ways that educate, heal, inspire, and delight.
Be proud yet humble. Practice gratitude, and you will find that the accolades that come to you are no match for the joy of knowing what you have been able to do for others through expressing the bounty of generosity within you.
Lion Spirit knows there is a great savanna before you and many who will benefit from the healthy expression of your unique set of gifts if you choose to work in partnership with Spirit. All your relationships flourish as you express your worth and generosity of spirit with humility and kindness. What a blessing you can be to all!
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.
