The sun in Leo and Neptune in Pisces share a minor aspect today, reinvigorating our energy and giving us the gumption to take on the workweek. The Leo energy gives us some additional pep in our step, and we’ll feel motivated to tackle new projects and assume leadership roles. It’s okay to be a little superficial this morning. Investing extra effort in your appearance can help you prepare to handle the day.
A desire to run the show could be strong today and should be well received by your colleagues. However, Neptune’s presence tells a different tale as we head into the day. As you finish your work for the day, remember to switch gears back to neutral. It’s unlikely that the people in your personal life will appreciate you calling all the shots.
Be mindful of the wants and needs of those around you tonight, and remember to be cooperative and collaborative when it comes to mundane matters like what to have for dinner or watch before bed. People want to feel as though they’re being listened to and heard, and this can go a long way toward getting a positive response. Anything else could spell drama.

54 | Skunk Spirit | Know your worth.
What do you value? What do you believe in? Is your best, most authentic self on display? Skunk Spirit comes as a reminder that you can be proud of who you are and what you have accomplished. Know your worth.
Not everyone will agree with you or share your values, but you can walk with your head high, knowing that when you express your integrity, others can feel your authenticity and will be inspired by it.
Be who you are, and if your reputation precedes you, good! You have much to be proud of, and Skunk Spirit wants you to be your best self, the true you.
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.

During this five-month retrograde, we’re given plenty of opportunities to face our fears and get rid of what’s not working.

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.

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