Cosmic Chaos- Global and Govenmental Shifts!
We start this Lunar report with most of the planets in a tailspin!
Mercury just recently went retrograde, Uranus also is retrograde, Neptune, Saturn, and Pluto have been retrograde for a while.
We can witness the energy of the turned around planets easily by just clicking on the news and watching the global chaos spark outrage and tension. Also, issues of the past rise up to the surface in present day time pushing for resolution, balance, and equality. This is what happens when you have Jupiter in balance and equaliy loving Libra, Saturn in Sagittarius highlighting people and cultures globally along with acceptance and education, Pluto in Capricorn creation transformation of the 'old ways' and goverment, and Uranus in Aries leading the fire for innovation and change!
In our personal lives we are being comforted and protected and have little to worry about – stay in space of love and light, remain flexible and open and you'll be just fine!
Mercury Retrograde- Gift in Disguise?
Even Mercury retrograde in the sign of Virgo (the sign that it rules!) can act as a blessing! This is because for the last few months the the majority of us have been required to make some heavy decisions based upon what is for our highest and greatest good. At the time you make the decisions based upon what you envision for your future and what you think will be best but as you grow in the upcoming months you'll see that you may need to revisit past recent decisions and make some changes. Mercury retrograde gives you that opportunity!
You have until Sept 5th to capitalize on this energy- when Mercury turns direct again.
Luna Thrives- Solar Eclipse in Leo, Among other Beautiful Things!
Also working on all our behalves is the moon falling comfortably within the sign of Taurus! The planets pick favorites and choose sides and moon simply adores the energy of Taurus and she thrills as she saunters her way through the sign! The last few weeks she (the moon!) has been the center of our attention as she has been the lead player in the recent passing Full Moon eclipse and she will also be an important piece of the upcoming solar eclipse in the sign of leo!
With this combination a few important words come to me- decadence, self love, and especially 'recognition'- a word that has held special meaning for all of us for the past couple of months!
Why? Well, because Leo rules extravagance! It is a sign that knows that it worthy of beautiful experiences, people, and things. This solar eclipse connects you back to your VALUE and also the things & people you value. Surround yourself in all that makes you radiant! Remove from your aura and space anything that dims or threatens your shine!
This eclipse also brings in the vibration of creation! This is perfect for those with small businesses, artists, or those who have children or want to focus on adding to their families. With this new moon solar eclipse you have the opportunity to capitalize on this energy and build even further!
Of course, Mercury being retrograde warns you not to rush or dive into commitments without double- no, TRIPLE- checking details first AND Uranus' current switch to retrograde motion is notorious for shocking revelations and surprising twists and turns in life! These are the things that make life interesting and fun... again, only if you remember to remain flexible, open... and a good sense of humor doesn't hurt!
- 12th: Mercury is retrograde- be aware of miscommunications, label your items with your name on them in case they go missing, back your phone up, and triple check details of you absolutely must sign agreements or important documents!
- 13th- Sun trine Saturn- excellent day for planning/visualizing the future! Also wonderful for health check ups, meetings & discussions, organizing, and restructuring plans!

- 16th- Venus square Saturn- relationships tested even further! Commitments feel heavy or relationship burdens/woes are highlighted.
