This morning’s quiet moon in Aquarius puts us in an upbeat and chatty mood. Staying on task should come easily this morning, and you’re likely to feel a sense of satisfaction for striking this efficient rhythm.
Later, the moon moves into Pisces. The Pisces moon gives us comfort through daily rituals and routine. Your brain should be operating at a high level today, making information easy to process and witty banter second nature (just watch your social media consumption).
Today is a wonderful time to relax and restore your energy. Instead of focusing on the future or the past, try to stay in the present and experience all of the good vibes as life unfolds around you. If you’ve put off any projects, now is the time to finally get started. This energy can sometimes create a bit of insomnia, though, so try to avoid screens an hour before bed. This motivating energy will last until morning, so aim for an early start. There are benefits to be gained here through sincerity, authenticity, and creativity which expresses our vulnerability honestly. We should be especially careful to avoid trying to sell our sob stories — nobody is buying today.

21 | Dove Spirit | Be at peace in mind and body.
The dove is a gentle and pure animal, it is the bearer of good news and hope. It shows us that this is an end of a cycle, we are close to our form of paradise and need to be patient. Flying high to deliver the messages, it embodies the element Air: knowing all, seeing the bigger picture, and helping you in a loving way to create a more beautiful and harmonious world.
Doves in a personal matter are a loving, affectionate, and trustworthy animal. Not only we have relied on them to deliver messages on long distances, but they are also trustworthy familywise. A dove is a monogamous animal, that shows extraordinary care for its partner and chicks. It reminds us of a romantic, gracious, and stable love and it moves in that matter in the world.
This spirit animal is an embodiment of purity in every form, it doesn’t let you stray away from your higher path, reminding you of your true essence and helping you remain calm and collected in situations of distress. It is above pettiness and worldly quarrels, looking at them not with condescendence, but with love and understanding, like a motherly figure.
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.
