The Pisces moon soars through the sky this morning, amping up our charm and intuition. We should all be feeling a little pep in our step, and our minds will be very active. Pisces energy can be a bit overstimulating for some, so be sure to check in with your breath throughout the day and take a time-out when you need one.
The stars shine brightly in the communication realm as the moon opposes Mercury this morning. This aspect helps us feel confident in our knowledge and achievements and ready to share information with the world. Your social media accounts will be on fire, so be sure to post a flattering pic! Communication will be at a peak all day, which could cause some burnout as we near the evening.
We continue to need input, stimulus, or just someone to listen and offer some compassion. Egos are vulnerable and self-expression is quite tentative. We may be dealing with the recognition that our vision for the future is not quite as clear as we had believed. The tumult in the aftermath of the Aquarius Full Moon has us perhaps licking our wounds or sifting through the debris. While it may be tempting to do this in private, working with others will help us to maintain a more reliable perspective. Rather than seeking to punish ourselves for our failings or missteps, we need to focus on having another look at the lesson and coming back from a different angle.
A gentle connection between Uranus and the moon could cause a little bit of mental wonkiness, but we’ll still feel driven to chat with others and check social media. Do yourself a favor and unplug sometime after nightfall. If the social media activity, texting and general chattiness goes too late into the evening, you might end up with a touch of insomnia. That beautiful brain of yours will still be active and hungry for information, though, so put on a nature documentary before bed to help lull you to sleep.

1 | Ant Spirit | Time to collaborate.
Do you really believe that you have to do everything yourself? Do you believe that, somehow, any help you get will be disappointing or not good enough? Perhaps it is time to address your issues of control and bias toward the negative.
It doesn’t matter where or why you came to be pessimistic or mistrustful.
The fact that Ant Spirit is showing up now is a sign that you have an opportunity to heal and to relearn to trust that others will show up for you in a genuine way. Ant Spirit wants you to remember that your expectations and limiting beliefs are a vibrational offering that draws in the opposite of what you desire. Spirit wants to help you and will send collaborative partners your way. It’s time to see the universe as conscious and connected, loving and helpful, but you must participate in this activity of co-creation. Creating reality is not just about dreaming!
If you are feeling orphaned from community, reach out and communicate. If you feel vulnerable, know that being present in your vulnerability can help you draw in someone who wants to assist you. Trust in your partnership with Spirit, and your outer conditions will start to reflect that. Then you will see the miracles waiting for you, including partners who appear, ready to lend a hand!
2022 LUNAR CALENDAR
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.

AUG 14 — MARS IN TAURUS TRINE PLUTO IN CAPRICORN
During this confident aspect, we’re able to tap into our inner power to live boldly and push self-imposed boundaries.
AUG 14 — SUN IN LEO OPPOSITION SATURN IN AQUARIUS
A day of deep insecurity as this aspect creates plenty of obstacles to overcome. Try not to take life so seriously today; it’s nothing personal.

This romantic aspect brings a “love-at-first-sight” vibe that makes it ideal for first dates and love affairs in general.

A draining day that can sap our collective energy and make us all very tired. Save important decisions for later and go back to bed.

Vesta re-enters Aquarius, bringing the inequality of the world to our collective attention as we struggle between personal freedom and what’s best for the group.
AUG 22 — SUN ENTERS VIRGO

Patience is required during this frustrating aspect that brings sudden and unexpected changes and delays.

The devil is in the details during this lunation as we look at how we can improve our lives without becoming obsessive.
