Welcome to August
I’m sure you can feel it, there’s been a slow increase in tension in July which will further intensify this month.
Usually, the month of August is a wonderful time of the year for putting yourself out into the world and leading the charge with your business offerings – regardless of whether it’s a service or a product that you are working with. At this time of the year, the Sun is moving through the sign of Leo which is linked to Leadership, shining brightly and being recognised for your unique talents. However, this year August is more of an introspective time. The celestial activity is inviting you to turn the focus inwards, tune into your heart (Leo rules the heart), and get clear on what it is you want to create in the world. Much will change in August. It’s a month for breaking down old ways of being, releasing old patterns of behaviour that limit you from reaching your potential and building a connection with your passionate, entrepreneurial spirit.
As part of that, notice how you can no longer hide your truth in all aspects of your life. It’s becoming increasingly challenging to work in or with organisations/communities that don’t align with your values or fully appreciate your gifts and talents. Traditional top-down business structures which value profit as their number 1 metric and pay lip service to employee engagement, sustainability practices and innovation will grapple with losses of valued team members. Yet socially conscious Businesses with flat structures which offer opportunities for equal contribution and empower team members to innovate and collaborate are likely to make huge leaps and bounds this month. As will solopreneurs dedicated to being of service by providing transformational offerings.
If you’re reading this column it is because you are conscious that we have officially moved into working and living in a completely different way to the way we have been for the last 200 years. You appreciate that energy is everything. That where you place your mind’s attention is reflected in the experiences you encounter each day.
The exciting thing about the month of August is that it is a huge month for activating yet more breaking down to make way for breaking through. The more we stay tuned into our hearts versus reacting to what’s going on around us, the more we step into our power and our ability to make a difference in a meaningful way.
With all of that said, I invite you to work with the lunations this month. Head to your sign to read about what’s available for you to initiate and bring into being this month.
