Mercury connects with Uranus today, which could result in some intense dreams. Your dreamworld travels are likely to correlate deeply with your subconscious and be a bit cerebral, so it could be a valuable morning to write in your dream journal. Just try not to obsess too much over what happened while you were exploring the astral realms.
The morning and early afternoon could be emotionally taxing and dredge up internal trauma you thought you’d dealt with. The feels are intense, and you could be confronted by some deeply rooted issues that you’ve been trying to avoid.
The Moon goes void-of-course at 1:17 PM PDT, after which we may find ourselves swimming in meaningless or incomplete details which don’t serve to advance anything. We should be very careful to be sure that others aren’t trying to take advantage of our confusion for their own personal gain. Clarity is unlikely to be found until tomorrow so trying force the issue won’t be very satisfying this afternoon or this evening.
The planetary connection might leave us feeling internally restricted and unsure of how to move forward. It’s an uncomfortable feeling, but today is a good time to self-analyze and see the ways in which we tend to self-destruct. By doing this shadow work, we can begin to understand our patterns and find new and healthier ways of being.
On a positive note, the cosmic energy can help us see our self-worth and identify the ways in which we can grow. We’ll be able to reconnect with our value today, but we must also do the less pleasant work that goes along with seeing our shadow selves.

12 | Canary Spirit | Sing your own song.
Are you suppressing your true voice, perhaps trying to sing the song you think people want to hear instead of your own? You create a cage around your life when you express only what you think will help you fit in and get what you think you want. Are you hiding the real you, telling a safe story about yourself to others because you are afraid they will think you are too “different” if they knew the truth?
Canary Spirit comes to help you express yourself in a more honest and authentic way. Yes, not everyone will agree with you; in fact, not everyone will want to hear your originality or accept your uniqueness. You must not give this a single care. There will be plenty of people, opportunities, and wonderful new experiences that arrive as if by magic once you open your own cage door and fly free.
Canary Spirit is cheering for you and wants you to know you are safe and loved. Find your voice, and have the courage to spread your wings and sing out loud! The world needs your true song.
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.
AUGUST 2022 ASTROLOGICAL CALENDAR
AUG 18 — VENUS IN LEO TRINE JUPITER IN ARIES
This romantic aspect brings a “love-at-first-sight” vibe that makes it ideal for first dates and love affairs in general.
AUG 20 — MARS ENTERS GEMINI
Buckle up because Mars will be in flighty Gemini for the rest of the year. In this mutable air sign, our energies become less focused but more flexible as we bounce from passion to passion on our quest for knowledge.
AUG 21 — MERCURY IN VIRGO OPPOSITION NEPTUNE IN PISCES
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.
AUG 21 — VESTA RETROGRADE ENTERS AQUARIUS
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
After spending the last month being the center of attention, we become a little more modest as the summer comes to an end. For the next four weeks, the energy will be sensible, organized, and a little cynical as we pour over every detail.
AUG 22 — MERCURY IN VIRGO TRINE PLUTO IN CAPRICORN
An ideal day for brainstorming as the mind will be full of fresh ideas and unique solutions.
AUG 24 — URANUS GOES RETROGRADE IN TAURUS
During this five-month retrograde, we’re given plenty of opportunities to face our fears and get rid of what’s not working.
AUG 25 — MERCURY ENTERS LIBRA
Communication becomes charming and friendly as our inner diplomatic comes to the surface. While it’s not a great time to make important decisions, it does give us a chance to brush up on our negotiation skills.
AUG 26 — VENUS IN LEO SQUARE URANUS IN TAURUS
Patience is required during this frustrating aspect that brings sudden and unexpected changes and delays.
AUG 26 — SUN IN VIRGO SQUARE MARS IN GEMINI

AUG 27 — NEW MOON IN VIRGO
The devil is in the details during this lunation as we look at how we can improve our lives without becoming obsessive.
AUG 28 — VENUS IN LEO OPPOSITION SATURN IN AQUARIUS
A frustrating aspect that could make us feel unrecognized and unappreciated by others. It could create conflict and make it difficult to express feelings.
