Why Your Career is a Mess, Based on Your Zodiac Sign


When you aren’t being the boss yourself, Aries, your employers love your energy and “go-getter attitude.”

Sadly, that’s where it ends for you a lot of the times. Your Cardinal sign nature is what makes you such a great self-starter, but your number of finished projects and initiatives can sometimes be on the low side.

You have bragging rights about your leadership skills and your Fire sign attitude encourages your high energy lifestyle. Get into the habit of working on one thing at a time, to the end, and you will start climbing up that ladder faster than you already are.


As an Earth sign, you are one of the most loyal zodiac signs to work with, Taurus.

You prefer stable hours, a schedule, and a routine that doesn’t change much. This could lead you into some traps at work. When unforeseen events come into the day, you have a tendency to freak out a little bit.

Sometimes nobody can tell just how stressed out you are, because you still manage to get your work done, but other times, it can be quite noticeable. Learning how to be more flexible and reining in that bullish temper will help you navigate your day, and your career, much better.


You are great with technology, and you’re probably a social media whiz, Gemini.

You are also social by nature, and thrive in work that involves groups, sales, or anything where people need to be repeatedly charmed. Unfortunately, your dual-sided personality can (and does) get the best of you sometimes.

Your personal life might often carry over into your work life as well. Take the time to turn off your phone, and put away your devices when working on a big project, or planning your next quarter. You’ll be amazed how much your work improves!


You are the Cardinal sign Cancer, and the mother of all things. Your Water sign nature makes you a natural empath, and you have a tendency to pick up the emotions around you.

Unlike other Water signs, however, you also react vocally, and intensely, when you pick up these emotions.

Your Cardinal sign nature has a way of demanding the people around you step into line. That being said, there’s “demanding,” and then there’s “asking nicely.” You just need to work on your delivery, and reactive nature a bit more, Cancer!


Your creativity and your passion to make a mark on the world are what your employers and clients love most about you, Leo.

As a Fixed sign symbolized by the lion, you are also loyal to the bone. In fact, you can sometimes be so loyal to your own opinions, that your co-workers might often call you stubborn.

Unless you’re the CEO, a little more flexibility on the job will help you attain the life of luxury you crave as the king or queen of the jungle. Rein in and tame that inner lion, Leo, and you’ll be roaring from a throne in no time.


You are obsessed with a flawless attention to detail, Virgo. Even your closet and your fridge at home are arranged alphabetically. As an Earth sign, you have a strong work ethic, and you’re one of the most reliable employees of the zodiac.

The people you work for know they can count on you for anything.

You need to work on being flexible. If someone takes your favorite mug out of its spot in the staff kitchen, you will spend the day looking for it and lose productivity. You also worry a lot, so much so that it sometimes impacts your health. Take time to let go of the “little things” and dial your energy back into your daily tasks.


As the Cardinal Air sign, you are fantastic when it comes to brilliant ideas. You avoid drama, and are usually the one that initiates compromise and negotiations on the job. You’re also great with words. Sometimes, a little too much.

You are often at a higher level than others, and forget that not everyone you work with is going to meet your self-imposed standards.

When that happens, your way with words can become critical. Be more open to the concept that all employees bring unique abilities and gifts to the table.

As the Fixed Water sign of the zodiac, you are truly skilled at psychic work, and rule the eighth house of secrets and intimacy, Scorpio. This makes you a natural detective great at research, fact finding, and also leading with your heart in the workplace.

Your biggest challenge in both work and love is overcoming this constant sensitivity which can translate into paranoia.

Sometimes you are so used to living in your own world, you see things that aren’t there. Don’t bring your fears to work, or you become your own worst enemy on the job.


You are naturally creative and flexible in the workforce due to your Mutable sign nature, Sagittarius. You do best at work that gives you a different thing every day. Being ruled by Jupiter, you also think big. Too big sometimes!

Boundaries can be difficult for you. A flexible work environment is one thing, but a work environment that allows you to do whatever you want doesn’t exist.

It can also be hard for you to fully commit to a job; you often wonder “what else is out there.” Employers don’t want to know, or see, behavior that is suggesting you aren’t sticking around for long. Find a way to balance that with a job that suits your nature.


You are the Cardinal Earth sign, making you a natural boss or authoritarian in the workforce. You like jobs with steady hours and a steady income, and are always looking for ways to elevate your status.

If anything, it’s your obsession and drive for status can be a weakness at work, Capricorn.

You have a tendency to dictate rather than ask fellow employees or colleagues for help. Your ruling planet is Saturn, so you also have a unique way of doing things the hard way. Being open to other opinions and methods will help you feel less pressure on the job, and will help you to elevate you to exactly the status that you want.


You are a high-level thinker, Aquarius. Being ruled by Uranus means you are always coming up with something brilliant and out of the box. This makes your employers look at you and marvel!

As much as you are the social sign, your ability to pick up emotional cues from those in the workplace can get you in trouble.

Emotions often elude you, as you are always in your head. It’s like you are Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory. You do well in groups, but social skills can sometimes confuse you.

Learning to listen to other people’s opinions, and not being so fixed on your own agenda, will help you work better with people on the job and send you up that ladder more quickly.


You are the dreamer of the zodiac, Pisces. Being the Mutable Water sign, your emotions literally fill the vessel of any room that you are in. This means you often have a hard time focusing on what is right in front of you. Jobs with flexible hours are best for you.

You are very compassionate and find more amusement in office politics than you do drama, a skill your employers thank you for.

You do, however, need to find less amusement at work and focus on the work at hand, as it can interfere with your productivity.


Now that you know your zodiac secrets to success, you know what to stop (or start) doing at work, on the job hunt, or in your climb up the career ladder towards your own personal sense of abundance.

Remember, knowing what is holding you back is only half the battle of success.

To reach your goals, you actually have to do something about it! What are you going to change about your work habits?

*Editors’ Note: This article was originally published in 2017, and has been updated.



Deeply aligned with the stars, elements, and pieces of the Universe, there’s a little bit of mystery and mystique within all the zodiac signs. But which ones are really the best at keeping secrets?

Perhaps you consider yourself already to be quite the private person, zodiac sign considered or not. But sometimes, our inclination towards privacy leans a little deeper into being able to conceal important information — which is actually quite the skill!

Some zodiac signs may be gifted with the gift of gab and charisma, but others may have a knack for keeping their hand close to their chest.

For a well-rounded picture of your abilities on keeping a secret, consult your full birth chart to find all the signs that lie within.

Will These Zodiac Signs Keep Your Secrets?


While Aries has a bit of a stubborn streak, this sign is not known for its tact or ability to keep a secret.

Fiery, brash, and bold, Aries may be the one to let the cat out of the bag. Loyalties do run deep with this Cardinal sign, however, so if your relationship with them is on the line, they may be able to keep a cap on their impulsivity.


Loyal and thoughtful, Taurus is a great contender for your secret-keeping needs!

This Earth sign takes a long time to open up themselves, so they don’t take it lightly when someone does open up to them. Ruled by Venus, planet of love, they care deeply about those who they keep in their inner circle and will do anything to ensure their trust.


Gemini doesn’t always mean to let the cat out of the bag, but sometimes it’s inevitable.

This charismatic sign is ruled by Mercury, planet of communication. For a double whammy, they additionally have the outgoing and spontaneous energy associated with the element of Air.

They may wish to make the grand promise of keeping your secret safe, but having such a hot-button topic of conversation may always tempt them away.


Sweet and compassionate with a desire to keep their inner circle happy, Cancer will always be a strong companion to keep your secrets safe with.

The catch? If you’re not within their close inner circle and you divulge a secret that especially may concern those that they care about, Cancer may let their heart and loyalties rule. Be sure that you’re close with the Cancerian spirit before letting your secrets fly and that you have a good reason for sharing.


Leo has a rep for being quite the drama queen, but they’re actually quite trustworthy (under the right circumstances).

As a Fixed sign, Leo’s loyalties run deep. They know how to keep a secret when it’s important and when it involves their close confidantes.

On the other hand, Leo’s tendency towards the dramatics can also make them slightly more prone to gossip, so if it’s not really all that important of a secret and it doesn’t involve their loved ones, they may let the secret fly.


Virgo has one true loyalty, and that’s to their mission to help others.

As a sign of service, Virgo is going to do what is best for everyone involved in the situation. If that means keeping your secret, Virgo will be able to keep it close to their chest.

However, if they decide that it would be best to clear the air, they may take matters into their own hands and resolve any outlying issues themselves.

Charismatic but deeply people-oriented, Libra is a bit of a mixed bag.

In a serious situation, Libra will most likely be able to keep a secret. As a Cardinal sign, they tend leadership and, ruled by Venus, planet of love, they do care for those that they’re involved with.

That said, Libras are also lighthearted and charismatic folk and love to be the life of the party. Some gossip may always be a bit inevitable with this bunch!


Scorpio is not only great at keeping your secrets but may also make active attempts to find them out!

Prodding and emotionally curious, Scorpio is a Fixed sign ruled by powerful and transformative Pluto. They love to be kept in the loop, and they’ll be the first to try to figure people out behind the scenes.

Despite this seemingly peculiar tendency, Scorpio doesn’t care for gossip, and they value your trust. So when it comes to keeping a secret, a Scorpio is a safe bet.


Free-spirited and a bit of a wildcard, a Sagittarius is probably not your first bet for secret safekeeping.

Their true loyalties are quite hard to pin down. As a lover of lively discussion, meeting new people, and discovering new information, Sagittarius may not actively intend to spill the beans on your secrets but may find themselves sharing them anyway.


Serious and goal-oriented, Capricorns probably care the least for petty gossip.

Especially if you divulge something of deep importance, Capricorn is sure to be able to keep your secret. As someone who does not often tend to venture out for random socialization anyhow, it’s simply not in the cards for them to spontaneously share your intimate information.


Both independent and social, Aquarius is a bit of an enigma, and you may not always know where you stand when it comes to their loyalties.

Humanitarian and community-focused, Aquarius does care about the long-term picture. If your secret is important and not frivolous gossip, they will more than likely keep it close to their heart.


Knowing your deepest, darkest secrets is usually always on Pisces’ agenda. Emotional and intuitive, Pisces loves being kept in the loop on the emotional intricacies of their loved ones’ lives.

As great listeners and big people-pleasers, they’ll be a great bet for holding space for your intimate secrets.

They’ll most definitely make honest attempts to keep it, but their unpredictable Mutable quality may let something of importance slip on occasion.

Is Secret Keeping in the Stars For You?

Your natal chart and all the signs that lie within can be a great clue to your true skills and talents.

Some of them may include keeping important secrets, and some of them may indicate otherwise. Either way, knowing what your strengths and weaknesses are is one of the first keys to self-awareness and growth.

Tarot cards and crystals tend to go hand in hand.

Why, you may ask?

For one thing, they are both thoroughly useful tools for enabling us to gain access to our subconscious mind and the spirit world. Tarot cards have an uncanny way of helping us understand situations, people, and places we would otherwise have no way of delving deeper into.

Crystals are of the Earth, and, therefore, they connect us to the ancient powers and wisdom that the Earth holds. When we harness the power of different crystals, we can tap into energy within us, which can help us grow and develop as humans.

In other words, both Tarot cards and crystals are pretty awesome! So why not put these incredible divination tools together?

The Best Crystals for Tarot

If you have been wondering what the best crystals for Tarot are–look no further!

There are 78 cards in the Tarot deck, so we’ll go by suits from the Minor Arcana and Major Arcana cards.

The four suits of the Major Arcana are:

  1. Wands (which represent energy)
  2. Swords (which represent intellect)
  3. Cups (which represent emotions)
  4. Pentacles (which represent the material world)

We’ll pair two crystals to each suit.

As for the Minor Arcana, we’ll pair two crystals for these cards too, which range from the beginning, the Fool card at number 0 to the final World card at number 21.

How to Use Your Crystals for Tarot

You can keep some of these crystals with you as you read. We recommend always keeping a crystal or two close by to keep you energetically balanced and grounded.

Most Tarot readers will agree that if your energy is out of whack, the reading itself can go all over the place and turn out inaccurate. Or, at the very least, your interpretation may be off.

However, once your reading is laid out, take the crystals associated with the cards and hold them in the palm of your hand. This will enhance your capability of interpreting, and you may even reach realizations you would not have thought of otherwise!

You can also place the crystals next to the cards themselves. If you are an intuitive reader, you’ll likely benefit even more from these crystals for tarot, as the information ought to flow freely towards you.

Time for the pairings!

Use These Tarot Cards With These Crystals

Wands Suit With Fire Agate & Sunstone

The Wands suit is a suit of passion and vitality. The Wands cards represent our energetic drive, inspiration, sexuality, and creativity.

Fire agate is a powerful crystal for protecting against ill wishes and for increasing sexual vitality. It is a crystal that helps you feel more alive, upbeat, and motivated.

Sunstone is a crystal of optimism, determination, and optimism. It helps to induce bravery and courage and is especially helpful for the Court cards such as the Knight of Wands, where these qualities are exemplified.

Both of these crystals for tarot can help to enhance the natural energies of the Wands suit.

Swords Suit With Blue Aragonite & Sodalite

Blue aragonite is associated with the throat chakra and is especially helpful for speaking and communication. The Swords suit is one associated with the mind. It represents action, power, force, and the power of the intellect.

Blue aragonite is a little rarer than other crystals, but it is extremely powerful in enhancing the qualities of the Swords suit.

Sodalite is likewise associated with communication and is helpful to those who struggle to find their voices. Wearing this crystal as a pendant can be very helpful with Swords cards that appear in readings as it helps to quieten an over-active or paranoid mind which can skew reading interpretations.

Pentacles Suit With Citrine & Clear Quartz

The Pentacles suit is about the material world such as money, physical appearance, jobs, careers, lifestyle habits, and health.

Clear quartz is the “master healer” and is especially helpful for Pentacles cards that show up concerning health and well-being. Clear quartz can help you identify how to heal yourself from within as you interpret your reading.

Citrine is a crystal that is very helpful in readings about career and money! Pentacles are usually a good sign in a money or career reading, and harnessing the energy of the citrine crystal can help you understand the details of your situation at an even deeper level.

Read this next: Everything You Need to Know About the Pentacles in Tarot

Cups Suit with Rose Quartz & Smithsonite

The Cups suit represents our emotions, love and relationships, matters of the heart, creativity, and our intuitive nature.

Rose quartz is perfect for the Cups suit because it promotes universal love and allows us to see things through the eyes of love and forgiveness. Harnessing the energy of this crystal during readings helps you to view your reading with a loving and, in some cases, which are necessary, detached eye.

Smithsonite is one of the rarer crystals, but it is brilliant for helping to calm and soothe emotions.

If your reading is particularly “Cupsy” and emotional, harness the power of smithsonite, which can help soothe your emotions and empower your intuition, enabling you to clearly understand what the reading is trying to tell you.

Major Arcana With Labradorite & Amethyst

The Major Arcana requires two major and powerful crystals to work with them. That’s why we’ve chosen labradorite and amethyst.

Labradorite is tremendous for tapping into your intuition. It can help you access your intuition with greater ease and helps us grow mentally, spiritually, emotionally, and physically.

The amethyst crystal is a great all-rounder–everyone’s got an amethyst! It helps to soothe and alleviate fears, open your Third Eye chakra, relieve stress, and dispel negative emotions.

It is essential to have a clear head when interpreting the Major Arcana, which often represents life-changing aspects out of your control. Amethyst is one of the best crystals to do this while connecting you to the Universe, which is in charge of the Major Arcana cards.

Tarot & Crystals Go Hand-In-Hand

Using Tarot cards along with crystals can make your readings and spiritual awareness even more powerful than usual!

These crystals for tarot are good for both beginners and seasoned readers to try. Harnessing the power of crystals is a great way to gain more practice as a reader – and it will make your intuition very happy, too.

Even the best readers can struggle with readings. It is something that never really leaves the reader. But using crystals for what they are there for – to help and support us – can help make our Tarot journeys just that little bit easier and be as rewarding as ever.

Are you ready for a laid-back week filled with clear, thoughtful communication? Then it’s time for you to unwind and get ready to relax because this week, the stars are taking a step back and letting us recharge.

We only experience one major transit on August 11th, when Mercury – the planet of communication, information, and intellect – is moving into pragmatic, practical Virgo. As Mercury danced through spicy Leo, you may have noticed more of a flair for drama and theatrics in your conversations with others – which can sometimes lead to frustration or conflict.

When Mercury struts through Virgo, this Earth sign brings our focus towards clear, concise communication. This transit also makes it easier to make decisions and come up with creative new solutions to what may have felt like insurmountable problems. You’ll notice that you’re better able to pay attention to detail and use Virgo’s critical lens to your advantage.

And because there are no other major transits this week, you can take your time to focus on what you feel matters most, whether that’s improving communication with your friends and loved ones, thinking through your big new projects or decisions, or simply giving yourself some time to rest and relax.

August 9 – August 15 is a Week to Channel Virgo’s Critical Eye & Decisiveness

Mercury in Virgo gives you a chance to turn that critical internal voice into your own personal assistant during this transit. Your critical eye and attention to detail make it easier to accomplish nearly anything right now, from performing more menial tasks to making big decisions.

This week, you can narrow your focus and listen to your instincts. An increased sense of logic means that communication runs more smoothly, and any decisions made will be based on thorough reasoning.

If you’re feeling stuck or unsure of where to turn your focus, a personalized astrological reading can help you gain the confidence you need to get started.

​Have you ever wondered what the best superfood for your Chinese Zodiac sign is?

You are in luck because this article will tell you the secrets of the best superfood for your Chinese Zodiac sign!

Naturally, all of these superfoods are “from the Earth,” so to speak. The Chinese Zodiac is a zodiac that is intimately connected with the Earth. It encompasses the five elements (Water, Fire, Earth, Air, and Metal), so you can imagine the impact various foods have on each sign.

Your Chinese Zodiac superfood is exclusive to you. Adding it into your diet can provide you with added oomph as the magic of the superfood works with the magic of your sign.*

*Of course, always be sure to discuss with your health care provider when it comes to adding new superfoods to your diet if you have underlying conditions or are currently on medication.

What Food Should I Eat Based on My Chinese Zodiac Sign?

Want to know what superfood is best for you based on your Chinese Zodiac sign? Read on to find out.


As a Rat, you are one of the most clever and shrewd members of the Chinese Zodiac. It goes without saying, really. How else did you manage to win the Chinese zodiac race, despite being the tiniest member and one of the slowest compared to the bigger and faster animals?

It’s all thanks to that incredible Rat brain of yours!

Therefore, Schisandra berry is the superfood for you. Used in ancient Chinese medicine, this wonder berry is perfect for improving cognitive performance and keeping your brain healthy.

Best served as a tea, seeped for several minutes, and then enjoyed as a healthy, goodful beverage in the morning.


As an Ox, you are hardworking and always willing to take on your share of the responsibility. It’s what makes you such a practical and reliable friend, and others adore you for it.

But you can be prone to pushing yourself too far at times, so it is important to take care of your physical health.

The best superfood for you is oats; good, pure, simple oats! High in fiber, protein, potassium, magnesium, and other minerals, they give you all the energy you need for a day of hard work. A bowl in the morning will suffice.


Being the Tiger, you are no stranger to challenge and conflict. You have oodles of courage, and you inspire others to stand for what they believe in too.

But you can be prone to burning yourself out. Therefore, Chaga is the best superfood for you. This is a type of mushroom that is often taken as a tea. It is a powerhouse of antioxidants and has a powerful effect on your pineal gland, helping to cleanse it.

In return, you can experience a balance between your material world and physical world, which is essential for you to be effective. Decoct it for one hour in filtered water in a stainless steel pan and drink after a long day for all the benefits.


As a Rabbit, you are a gentle soul, preferring a world of peace and harmony above all else. You are the one others turn to when they are in need, and your kind and diplomatic nature makes you wonderful company to have around.

However, it is important to take care of yourself, especially when things are chaotic!

You are more prone to sensitivity than others. Blueberries are the best superfood for you because they are packed with nutrients and antioxidants. Plus, they are readily available. A handful of berries a day keeps the Rabbit well, happy, and healthy!

The mighty and powerful Dragon has an abundance of energy and isn’t afraid to show it! As the Dragon, you possess a great strength that others admire.

As such, however, you can sometimes overdo it when it comes to harnessing your powerful energy.

It is essential for you to remain balanced to avoid unwanted side effects. Green tea, especially sencha, is wonderful for you, helping you to not only relax but also providing you with powerful antioxidants to fight off any unwanted free radicals in your body.


One of your most admirable qualities is your wisdom, Snake, and others look to you to offer sound advice and help them when they are in need. You are someone who values your serenity, and when things get out of control, it can be very taxing on you.

Therefore, it’s important to fill yourself with superfood leafy greens to keep you feeling nourished and healthy. The great thing about this superfood is that it is available in abundance, and you can never quite run out.

Go organic when possible!


As a passionate member of the Third Trine, you are someone who goes where the wind takes you. Restrictions really aren’t your thing, and you are someone who strongly values your freedom.

The need to be your true authentic self is strong, and rarely will you compromise it.

The best superfood for you is spirulina. This algae hosts a wealth of benefits, including brain-protective and anti-inflammatory ones, and this keeps you packed with nutrients as you go about your busy and adventurous life, Horse!


A dreamy member of the Fourth Trine, you are someone who has a rich inner world, and when you are at your best, you can manifest the depths of your imagination into reality, Goat.

So it’s important you keep that genius mind of yours in tip-top shape!

The green superfood kale is particularly beneficial for you. It is excellent brain food, helping to spark your creative talents and keeping you packed with energy so you can go about your daily business in a way that is meaningful for you.


As a Monkey, your mind is one of your greatest assets, and others are often wowed by the genius ramblings that come streaming out of your mouth.

As it stands, probiotics are the best superfood for you because you can be prone to issues around the digestive area, and it’s important for you to keep this area in check.

Your immune system can also benefit from probiotics. You can get these from live yogurt, kefir, and kombucha, to name a few! Adding probiotics to your diet contributes wonderfully to your wellness.


You are one of the most hardworking signs of the Chinese Zodiac, and it cannot be disputed that when you see a long-term goal, you will put your heart and soul into achieving it, Rooster!

However, this can make you prone to stress, and the best superfood for you is raw cacao, which brings powerful antioxidants into your body and can also help lower your blood pressure.

Raw cacao on its own can be quite bitter, so mix it with warmed plant-based milk and raw honey to produce a delicious hot chocolate vibe that can send you off to sleep in no time, packed with goodness and nutrients to keep you refreshed for the day ahead!

As a loyal and faithful member of the Third Trine, you are someone who can be prone to headaches, Dog, and this is because stress can come creeping up on you. You are a humanitarian concerned with injustice in the world, which complements your noble character, but at the same time, migraines can be an issue.

Turmeric is a superfood that is very good for you, particularly the active compound curcumin. It is said to improve anxieties and provide you with plenty of anti-inflammatory benefits.

Use turmeric powder in soups and stews, or alternatively, try a curcumin supplement (ensure the supplement is the best quality!).


As the last member of the Chinese Zodiac, you are a kind and giving soul who always makes wonderful company and who brings a sense of comfort to your loved ones, Pig.

However, you can be prone to laziness at times, so it is important for you to have a healthy routine with regular movement.

Goji berries are a wonderful superfood for you because they are a powerhouse of antioxidants, plus they do wonders for your sweet tooth and can stop you from reaching for sweets if you’re craving them.

Super Food, Super Life!

Are you ready to include your Chinese Zodiac superfood in your routine? Your zodiac sign eating habits can be an important contribution to your own personal sense of happiness and success.

These Chinese Zodiac superfoods can have a tremendous impact on your overall well-being. You can find them at most health stores or supermarkets.

So what are you waiting for? Experience the power of your superfood and let the magic of Chinese Astrology fill your body with healthy goodness!

It’s that time of the month again….

The time when the lunar energies are at their most powerful and we, the Moon-gazing humans, have the chance to harness the lunar powers all for ourselves.

Of course, with great power comes great responsibility, as Spiderman says, so when we are working with the Full Moon, it’s important to think about what we need instead of what we want.

That’s why Moon wishes that focus on winning the lottery tend not to come true. You might need the money, but even (or should I say, especially) in the spiritual world, things tend not to work out in a quick-fix way.

Let’s get into what this next Full Moon is all about.

Full Moon in Aquarius

On July 23rd, 2021, the Full Moon falls in progressive and unique Aquarius.

Yes, a second Full Moon in Aquarius!

A Full Moon in Aquarius intensifies the qualities of this Fixed Air sign. It highlights how we can make change and renewal through our connections with others. It encourages us to have the courage to do what we feel is right and make the changes that are necessary, no matter what anyone else thinks of us.

Aquarius marches to the beat of its own drum, but this sign often must overcome some kind of social stigma to progress effectively.

With the Sun in Leo, which encourages us to experience self-renewal and focuses very much on an “I” mentality, we find ourselves seeking a balance between the lunar and solar energies, which can be opposites, with one focusing on its interactions with others (Aquarius) and one focusing on its interactions with the Self (Leo).

This Full Moon also conjuncts Pluto, and this indicates a strong urge to break away from the past. The New Moon two weeks ago opposed Pluto, and the issues that were brought to light during the last New Moon are likely to reach a climactic explosion now during this Aquarius Full Moon!

So really, this Full Moon in Aquarius is inviting us to have the strength to be our true authentic selves, despite the obstacles and our fears.

That’s why a Full Moon ritual is so helpful!

Your Full Moon in Aquarius 2021 Ritual

It’s time to talk about a Full Moon in Aquarius ritual so that you can harness the powers of the Full Moon to your best ability.

Here is a step-by-step guide for your Full Moon ritual!

1. Write Down What You Need to Break Free From

It is likely that issues have been brought to your attention over the last two weeks that very much needed it, and your fears have risen to the surface.

This was the New Moon preparing you for the Full Moon.

What fears have been dominating you? Have you been afraid of speaking your mind or worrying about what others think of you? Write down your emotions and everything that has been happening.

2. Release the Fears

In this ritual, take the piece of paper you have written everything down on and release them.

How do you release them? Simply speak the issues and fears allowed and say,

“I release these issues and fears. They no longer have control over me, and I have the freedom and courage to be who I am and do what I want.”

You can perform this ritual with candles, crystals (tiger’s eye is especially good for this Full Moon ritual because it promotes courage and strength), or incense.

However, they are not completely necessary! What truly matters are your thoughts and your beliefs. The Universe hears your call, no matter what. The added extras simply set the tone nicely, so if you want to add them, feel free!

3. Connect With Nature

For this ritual, you’ll want to connect with nature because earthing yourself in some way brings you closer to the lunar energies.

It is preferably done in the evenings or at night when the Full Moon is at her most brilliant and brightest!

Go to a quiet spot in the garden or among nature if you can, sit and look up at the Moon. Close your eyes and think about the issues and fears you have just released. Breathe deeply and envision the future you wish to have and the person you wish to be.

Spend however long feels right to you doing this.

If you are unable to find a spot among nature, meditating inside with a plant pot or flowers is fine.

Crystals are fine too! Selenite and moonstone are especially helpful for connecting you to the Moon. As long as you have something connected to nature, you can perform this part of the ritual and help yourself connect to the lunar energies.

How Will You Embrace the Full Moon in Aquarius?

This Full Moon in Aquarius brings us the chance to march to the sound of our own drum (or at least acquire the drums to start doing it in the first place!).

It can mark the beginning of newness as we reinvent ourselves and break away from restrictions that hold us back.

Finding the courage to be ourselves is not always easy.

This is something our Aquarius friends must experience through life, and when the Full Moon shines in Aquarius, this particular feature of life shines bright for all of us.

What areas of your life require you to push through the boundaries? How can you make a difference in this world and to yourself and those around you?

Aquarius is the sign of originality, the progressor, and the round peg in the square hole. To operate in this way in such a world that often demands we are like everyone else can take lots of courage and determination. With the solar energies in Leo, the sign of courage, we can bring together both the Moon and Sun and find the courage within to be who we truly are.

So when the Full Moon bestows Aquarius energy on to us this July, try out this Full Moon ritual and get ready for the march. The world awaits you and is eager to experience the creative and passionate gifts you have to bring it!

Halfway through with the year’s third quarter, we enter the energetic and spirited month of September. The number “9” vibrations of completion, transition, initially the seventh month, represent spiritual growth.

At the beginning of the month, we will begin to feel focused and renewed. Although we are still processing the beginning of this year, September comes jammed pack with refinement, healing, and adjustment.

Not only will this month provide us an opportunity to integrate the most recent spiritual changes, shift our lens of consciousness, but we will also journey into Autumn Equinox, the ultimate balancing of light & dark.

This month’s focus should be on uncompleted tasks, refining your goals, and finding new ways to improve your current situation. From the Virgo New Moon to the Pisces Full Moon, September wants us to dive deep within, take a good look at ourselves, find out what still needs healing, and apply forgiveness for ourselves and others.

The energy begins to slow down as the dog days of Summer give way to the cool Fall nights. Nevertheless, we have harnessed a great deal of fuel for our creative endeavors to carry us into the months ahead and even into 2022.

Fine-tuning your desires for emotional fulfillment and helping you learn that if there is something better out for you, sometimes for you to find that. You have to trust the whispers of supportive guidance from your intuition, leap, and let go.

Lessons surrounding boundaries this summer have been monumental, with more planetary shifts this month reminding us that we all have the power of authority and creation in our lives. By releasing the dead weight of the past, we can regenerate into the most brilliant version of ourselves.

From mutable oppositions to squares involving Venus, Fall Equinox, and Mercury’s finale, September is a new dimension of understanding and a beautiful transition into the rest of the year.

Let’s explore this month’s planetary conversations!

Your September 2021 Energy Forecast

September 4th, Mars Opposite Neptune (Virgo/Pisces)

Illusionary Distractions

When Mars and Neptune connect, exciting themes come into play. Themes of ambition, drive, creativity, imagination, sexuality, power, and life purpose.

Mars’s most recent transits urged us to recognize the right action of the heart, slow down, and make sure we are heading on the right path. So often, we attach ourselves to a myriad of things in the physical realm, leaving us confused in our sense of direction and life purpose. Mars forms a harmonious trine with Pluto during this opposition, while Neptune is sextile Pluto creating a mystic triangle.

Stimulated by a T-square involving the Moon, Venus, and Pluto, there is some minor conflict and pressure giving stimulus to the true expression of the heart. If you can see how attachments to your urge to survive and material desires may sometimes cloud your judgment and ability to see the real picture. This aspect will prove to be a very successful shift.

Dance, music, tantric arts, meditation, and poetry are all great ways to channel any excess energy and relieve stress during this time. Learning to dissolve attachments leads to greater spiritual enlightenment.

September 7th, Virgo New Moon

Holistic Refinement

Today sets the stage for a significant calibration and healing of our lower body system as the Virgo New Moon aligns us with our divine light.

After the last two Aquarian Full Moons, Virgo comes in with integrity, purity, and refinement. The master/healer teacher of mindfulness and wellness for the mind, body, and soul, Virgo is the light of perfection in all of creation. It is the zodiac sign with an inquiring mind, excellent memory, and intuition.

Neptune throws some minor illusions into the mix while in a multiple-planet opposition with the New Moon, Sun, and Mars. Whenever Neptune is involved, there are lessons surrounding our clouded vision and our ability to act and accomplish goals.

A New Moon cycle suggests we are giving birth to something personally and emotionally fulfilling that will ground us in our soul’s purpose. This New Moon represents a time when you rise above past defeats and challenges and use the active mind to find new successful ways to evolve.

Recent lightning storms cleared our environment of distractions, illusions, and disempowering stories. Allow this New Moon to shift your mindset and daily routine so that you can be of better service to the world.

Happy New Moon!

September 10th, Venus Enters Scorpio

Emotional Power of the Heart

Venus wastes no time swiftly moving into passionate Scorpio. Here, we dive deep below the surface of the subconscious to release the entrapments of this physical realm in a journey to discover the alchemical properties of the heart.

Venus may have a challenging time in Scorpio, but that is because the energy tends to amplify the need for authentic and intimate relationships with others.

Most importantly, cultivating an authentic relationship with yourself opens the door to fulfillment.

Venus takes us beyond the barriers of jealousy, obsession, the desire to control, and emotional attachments to tap into our inner power and deepen our perception to become more in touch with the hidden power of sexuality and inner relationship. Use Venus in Scorpio to transmute old emotional stories into creative fuel for your projects and goals.

September 14th, Mars Enters Libra, Sun & Neptune Light Bridge

Balancing Impulse

The Sun and Neptune form a dynamic opposition hours before Mars moves into Libra. When the Sun and Neptune connect, it’s like an interdimensional union of the personality and spirit. The awakened ego and emerging soul. Their tug of war represents the dissolving of our illusionary self-image. While this energy may make you more susceptible to confusion and deception, you can find a way through with compassion and self-love.

Libra represents the scales of balance–the diplomatic sign of truth and justice.

Mars’s graceful entrance into Libra symbolizes the moment we begin recognizing the soul in the body, mirroring the reflection of our true self. Represented by the natural opposition between Libra and Mars-ruled Aries, this energy forces us to confront how we suppress our desires and act in concern of others.

Healthy businesses, relationships, and partnerships do not require you to hide your desires to please others. During this time, focus on implementing the balance of action and rest, tuning inwards to uncover the next step. Examine all possible options and think as your higher self before you act.

September 17th, Venus Square Saturn (Scorpio/Aquarius)

Social Restrictions

Venus and Saturn clash, generating some delays and resistances in both our personal and social life.

Perhaps you may find yourself burdened with more responsibilities, leaving you feeling emotionally restricted. The focus tends to be on more practical issues and obligations you have to others. You may find yourself hashing out some unresolved relationship issues that were holding you back from progressing. The heart is taking its seat of emotional authority.

Any blockages you encounter are opportunities to elevate to higher ground and, therefore, more loving and thriving relationships.

September 20th, Pisces Full Moon

Collective Enlightenment

September’s Full Moon occurs 28 degrees in the cosmic ocean of Pisces. A whole new world of consciousness becomes accessible to us underneath this Full Moon.

Pisces is the light of the world, the cosmic ocean, and the divine oneness of the Universe. The Sun finishes up in master craftsman Virgo, providing us access to cutting-edge clarity, focus, and precision for alignment and our adjustment into Libra season and Fall Equinox.

During this time, the Full Moon conjuncts Neptune, while sextile Pluto, and square the Galactic Center.

It’s time to tap into the free-flowing, compassionate, and inspiring energy of Pisces. Flow with the changes and find peace in the very center of your being. Avoid becoming swept up in an emotional storm of confusion and illusions that will take you down a destructive path.

The heart of the Milky Way connects with this month’s Full Moon, providing us access to a new paradigm and concept of truth.

Pisces Full Moon is an emotional ending of the Summer and the preparation for a new season. Use this time to meditate, engage in breathwork, arts, and yoga. Tap into your imagination for healing and strength. Pisces seeks to remind us of unity oneness.

September 22nd, Fall Equinox, Sun Enters Libra


Wednesday the 22nd delivers us to the Autumn Equinox, with the Sun entering Libra. Autumn equinox marks the official beginning of Fall in the Northern Hemisphere. The scales are in balance, resulting in an equal amount of both day and night.

Equinox is considered a time of transition, change, gratitude, harvest, and a fresh start. It is a time to enjoy the fruits of our labor while letting go of what we no longer want to bring with us in this new cycle of growth.

September Equinox is a time of metamorphosis and transition, preparing us for winter. During this time, the Sun moves into diplomatic Libra.

Libra is the light of balance within creation, the highest realization of our mirrored self. The zodiac reveals our reflection through the various relationships we attract.

The Sun enters the sign of the scales calling us to achieve a new state of balance, asking us to bring more beauty into our lives and connect back with our core values. With the Sun in Libra, prepare for a shift in intimate relationships, friendships, and contracts. You may find yourself responding to more social events. Let your creative imagination find balance in your life.

Happy Solar Return, Libra!

September 23rd, Venus Opposite Uranus (Scorpio/Taurus)

Opposing Values

Unexpected tension and emotional events may trigger under this opposition between Venus and Uranus. They are urging us to redesign our relationship with our heart, physicality, values, and worth.

You may feel some dissatisfaction with finances and partnerships. While situations may be a bit more erratic, you may meet exciting and usual people who provide new insight. These encounters give you a chance to let go of old attachments and transform your capacity to live powerfully through the lens of love, acceptance, honesty, and truth.

September 27th, Mercury Retrograde in Libra

Scales of Truth & Justice

The messenger, Mercury, stations retrograde 25 degrees in Libra, the final retrograde of 2021, another mind-elevating shift, and a profound upgrade to our inner operating system.

Mercury retrograde in Libra represents the journey to internal balance, adjusting the relationship with our higher self through physical partnerships. This will urge the collective to find peace in our thoughts before trying to make a more significant impact on the world. You may find yourself having to cooperate with others under this energy. It’s important to know that you do not have to compromise your values or self-expression to please others.

While we will have a smoother experience this retrograde, there is significant emphasis on strengthening interpersonal communication. Expect the typical Mercury drama of travel delays, technology breakdowns, contract issues, and more. Mercury stations direct on October 18th, right after Jupiter.

Post shadow for Mercury will end on November 2nd. Just imagine, we made it through some challenging transits that brought us closer to ourselves more than ever.

Energy Tips for September

Significant planet stations take us by storm this month, launching us into a new season of abundance, healing, growth, and success. Sometimes, solitude is the only way to find the answers we seek. Carving out sacred space from the everyday hustle and bustle of life, to be alone and at peace with your thoughts.

This month’s energy oracle card is “Soul retrieval,” deep soul healing with the Goddess. This card is brought to you by the Isis Oracle deck.

Soul retrieval is divine confirmation that September represents an opportunity to make peace with the past and reclaim lost pieces of you. Pieces of your soul have become trapped in the past due to traumatic experiences and relationships. Lady Isis guides you into compassionate forgiveness so that you may reclaim those pieces and transition into a new season.

September is the turning point and transition of the seasons from light to dark. We are integrating our true expression in the dark void. September will indeed highlight the many spiritual shifts we have experienced this year.

Use this month to:

  • Seek solitude and turn inward for answers
  • Donate old things and/or give back to the community
  • Celebrate abundance and home life
  • Set goals for the remainder of the year

We are incredibly powerful and most powerful when emotions are involved – the electrifying current that shapes the future.

So, tune into your emotional awareness and practice mindfulness this month. Don’t let fear overtake you and get lost in its undertow: tune inward, trust, and flow.

Happy September!



Are you feeling the buzz and stress of the Spring season? Who isn’t. We adore this time of year. But it also comes with a bit of a frenetic undertone too, doesn’t it? So much fun ahead, and so much planning to do and work to be done before you can enjoy it. So just stop. And say the word “Chakra” with me. It’s pronounced “Shaw”-“Krah.” Chakra. Just saying it is calming, am I right? Keep saying it.

Today we are going to look at another took for your toolbox, Reiki Stones, that can help you align your chakras. Saying it is calming. Aligning them is enlightenment. It’s easy. We will walk you through this no nonsense Reiki stones guide and checklist to help. Anybody can do it!

What is Reiki? What is Chakra? What are you talking about?

We talk about chakras here a lot. Simply put they are little invisible wheels of energy and flow happening in your body right now, all the time. There are 7 of them, and each has a different purpose to help you align you on your soul’s path and journeys. Each one has a function, and a corresponding color. More on that in a minute

Reiki is an energetic form of healing that works with these chakra centers, as well as a spiritual practice that was developed in 1922 by Japanese Buddhist, Mikao Usui. It is administered by laying on hands and is based on the idea that we are alive due to the unseen life force of energy that flows through and around us. This energy is known in Chinese culture as Chi.

The energy that flows through our chakras is Chi, and the chakra centers is where the work with the energy happens. Reiki helps you to make sure the energies get to where they need to go, so you can feel whole and enlightened.

Okay so let’s walk through this guide on Reiki stones and how to use them for chakra healing and divination.

1. What are Reiki stones?

Reiki stones are one of the many methods of divination, and they are stones that are generally highly polished, adorned stones that bear the key symbols that are used to access specific energies. Carved or hand painted on to the stones are key symbols – or Reiki symbols – which are intended to connect the user in a simple and beautiful way to the universal life force. Each stone bears a symbol that represents a different level of vibrations aligned with our chakras.

Reiki stones are smooth to the touch and are often so lovely in their appearance that the tranquil beauty of the stones themselves has a calming effect on the psyche even before they are used in the practice. Visually, these polished stones complete the physical aesthetic of Reiki and the use of them as healing tools can be seen as an energy-infused extension of the hands. While they are traditionally created from black jasper stone and gold leaf, Reiki stones can be made out of any number of stones known for their vibrational properties, such as calcite, quartz, lepidolite, pink manganocalcite and rose quartz.

2. How are they used?

Reiki stones must cleared and programmed for the purpose of healing. Clearing is needed before using any stone for healing. The clearer the energy of a healing tool – such as a stone – the more powerful it is. Reiki stones need to be cleared before and after every healing. A cleared, ready stone feels positive and cool to the touch. A stone that needs clearing may give off the feeling of being heavy, or drained of good energy.

To clear a stone, one might use dried leaves of sage a planet called Salvia Alpiana, or incense – you may pass each stone through the smoke while asking your deities to assist in cleansing the stone of any negativity. To program a stone is basically a way of dedicating it to your purpose. Once a stone is programmed with your intent, it will hold the essence of it until you or someone else reprograms it.

3. What do the symbols represent?

There are seven stones, each represented by a color – much like the colors associated with chakra healing and ancient kundalini yoga. The spectrum of colored stones are specific and work in accordance with the body, the mood, the mind and the awareness of the energy stored within us.

Red – Root Chakra: Designed to relieve pain or discomfort. Place on the area that needs physical healing.

Orange – Sacral Chakra: Provides and restores balance and sends energy to physical systems. Helps with addictions, can be carried in your pocket through the day, or used on your stomach to align the sacral chakra.

Yellow – Solar Plexus Chakra: Using this stone helps you restore the confidence that your solar plexus chakra works with every day. When you want to feel “puffed out” like you just had a big win, a healing session with your Yellow Reiki Stone can help. This reduces stress immediately.

Green – Heart Chakra: A great stone to use for love, in matters of the heart or otherwise. It heals heartbreak as well. Every time you lie down put your green Reiki Stone on your heart and just breathe for a few minutes to clear negative energy and open up the door for fresh new room for love.

Blue – Throat Chakra: This stone will help you to communicate on a higher plane, with the Divine, and also communicate to others with the highest and purest intent. Holding it in your hand can immediately help you to channel this energy.

Pink – Third Eye Chakra: The third eye chakra is typically indigo, but the pink reiki stone is the one that will help you to enhance your intuition and your connection to a plane where visualizing the great beyond is possible. I often tell people I surround them in pink light when they are hurting or sick. It takes them to a place of healing, and a place where you can see this present pain is only temporary. This is a very powerful stone that allows you to achieve this instantly.

Purple – Crown Chakra: This is considered the most powerful Reiki stone. Like the crown chakra it connects you instantly to the Divine. It also opens up your psychic portal, and seasoned Reiki practitioners can feel it actually vibrate once they tap into this energy. You can too with practice! Even if you don’t feel the vibrations right away, the power is working.

4. Why would I use Reiki stones?

We use Reiki stones for the purpose of concentration and grounding energy. A Reiki practitioner is someone who transfers Universal energy (Reiki) through the palms of their hands – the stones act as extensions of this energy.

You use Reiki stones if you wish to become a dedicated, compassionate healer who is committed to the principals of Reiki. You use them to open the channels and expanded awareness and healing. They are also helpful when healing animals, children, the elderly or the disabled.

You don’t need to use them for others either though. If you have pain in your life and are seeking comfort, Reiki stones can be a wonderful tool to help you work through it and put it behind you. You don’t need to be certified. Literally anybody can use them, and start harnessing this power today.

5. How often do I use Reiki stones?

Reiki stones can be used any and every time one employs the use of Reiki. Remember always to give gratitude afterwards to the deities and devas that you have invoked to assist you in your healing. After each session, give thanks to the Universal energy that heals and delivers peace and to the stone itself. You can lay the stones down on your own body for relaxation every day.

Quickly cleanse them with incense or sage, and when you are finished, say a prayer, and place them in a clean safe place for the next usage.

Concluding thoughts…

Do you feel uplifted and empowered? You should. If not, let us know and we’ll walk you through it. Reiki stones are a good tool to have in conjunction with your Daily Horoscopes. If you see a storm coming, calm down in an instant with Reiki healing. You can do it yourself today!

The world of Reiki healing is one of great reverence for the energies of the Universe, and all rituals are geared towards the betterment of all things, in respect and love for nature. Have you ever used Reiki stones? What are your experiences with chakra healing, and what is your favorite kind?

Are you looking for fun yet clear communication with a side of practical motivation? Then this is your week because the stars are bringing two magical transits your way this week that will help clear up communication while giving your sense of ambition a boost!

And while this may seem like a slow astrological week, these two particular transitions have a great deal of energy to bring your way, so buckle up!

It all starts on July 27th, when Mercury, the planet of communication and the sharing of information, moves into spicy, fiery Leo.

That’s right, Leo season is almost here, and it begins with this warm and friendly transit. When Mercury is in the sign of Leo, you feel a heightened sense of confidence regarding your thinking, ideas, and conversations, making it easier for you to put yourself out there both mentally and verbally.

Then, on August 29th, Mars – the planet of ambition and drive, moves into pragmatic, earthy Virgo. This transit amplifies your ability to focus on hard work and tasks that will further move you towards your goals and dreams. You’ll feel a greater sense of satisfaction after completing an important job or task than ever before, making it easier to get things done. And the more work you complete during this time, the closer you’ll get to the finish line.

These two transits come together to create the perfect energy for moving closer to your ultimate goals and dreams. You’ll not only be able to confidently share your thoughts and ideas with others, but you’ll also feel more motivated to take action than you have been for a long time.

July 26 – August 1 is a Week to Speak Up, Stand Out, & Get Things Done

Mercury in Leo lights a fire within and encourages you to speak up when you have a great idea, to stand out from the crowd. It’s time to let your inner light shine on the world.

On the other hand, Mars in Virgo asks that you follow your sense of ambition and drive, tackling any tasks that you feel motivated and determined to tackle.

This week challenges you to put yourself out there and let your sense of motivation and willingness to bend to the task drive you. If you allow these astrological forces to guide you, there’s no limit to what you can share and accomplish.

If you’re not sure out to let yourself be heard and follow your motivated core, a personalized astrological reading can help you channel your inner king or queen.

If you’re reading this article, the chances are you don’t relate to your Sun sign.

Don’t worry. You’re not alone!

I’ll begin with my own experience. Once upon a time, I thought astrology wasn’t for me. I was born a Libra. A harmonious, balanced, graceful, peace-loving Libra who cannot stand conflict and will do anything to keep the peace.

But in reality, I’m a rather guarded, defensive sort of person who thinks conflict is just a way of life.

I could honestly say that I did not relate to my Sun sign and even felt I had the wrong zodiac sign entirely. I left astrology in the dust for many years before a chance encounter caused me to take an interest once again.

The Importance of the Rising Sign

It was then that I discovered my Rising sign: Scorpio rising, to be precise.

Hmmm, I thought as I read through the description. Guarded … strategic … persistent … views the world as a dangerous place … penetrating stare … sits in the corner and broods … Oh my God, I thought, that’s me!

In fact, the Rising sign description was so eerily accurate that I wondered why I hadn’t learned all this long before.

But it was at that moment that I feverishly delved into my birth chart, discovering more illuminating information that wowed me: Venus in Scorpio … Moon in Cancer … Mars in Capricorn. Why yes! It all made sense now!

As the years passed and I learned much more about astrology, I thought to myself about how so many people must be in the same position I was – where they don’t take astrology seriously or don’t relate, because so much emphasis is placed on a Sun sign they don’t relate to.

But why is this?

It happens far more than we realize. I know Capricorns who don’t feel remotely like Capricorns. I know Leos who don’t feel like Leos. I know Geminis who don’t feel like Geminis. And so on.

So what exactly is going on here?

What Makes Up My Zodiac Sign?

First, let’s look at the three main signs that make up who we are, also known as the Primal Triad.

To properly calculate these signs, you’ll need to complete your natal chart–inputting the exact date, time, and location of your birth provides a snapshot of the sky at the moment you came into the world. Make sure you use our free birth chart generator to find out yours before reading on!

1. Your Rising Sign

First, there is your Ascendant or Rising sign. This is determined by the hour of your birth and represents the image you show to others. In Esoteric astrology, it also represents your soul’s purpose.

Chances are if you find out what your Rising sign is, you will probably find you relate to it very well. This is because the Rising sign is the sign you project to others. It is the face you show the world, your appearance, it represents how you deal with external situations.

2. Your Moon Sign

Then, there is your Moon sign.

This is the sign that highlights your deepest emotions and represents the way you navigate the world via your feelings and emotions. Further, it represents your physical, emotional, and social needs.

3. Your Sun Sign

Finally, your Sun sign is the essence of who you are. It is the vital force within you that compels you to find the highest expression of your true self. This sign guides your actions, like your career and skill development and how you perform in social interactions.

Unlike your Rising sign, however, your Sun sign is hidden deep within you.

In some astrological circles, it is believed that only when we hit our 30s do we start to identify with our Sun sign. The first 30 years of life or so (before Saturn returns for the first time) is about getting to know ourselves.

Generally speaking, you might start to gravitate more towards your Sun sign and what it means to you, and less towards your Rising sign. Of course, it is not always the case for everyone but it is common for this process to take place.

This can also explain why some in their 30s, 40s, and 50s can experience a “mid-life crisis,” appearing to take a completely different life path to the one they had been on.

The Importance of Saturn Return

After my first Saturn return, I went through a rather dramatic transformation. My diet completely changed– so did my appearance, to a degree. I became more approachable, less guarded around people, and more willing to build bridges, rather than partake in conflict.

Further, my Scorpio rising is still very strong, but my Libra Sun is now showing itself, too. The influence of Venus, which rules over the arts and beauty, is starting to have a more powerful impact.

In other words, the essence of who I am is starting to manifest itself into the world, through aspects such as encouraging healthy lifestyles and bringing people together, despite differing opinions.

This is Libra Sun (a sign of peace) but it is through Scorpio rising (a sign of conflict) that it manifests. One is ruled by Venus and the other is ruled by Mars–these planets are different as chalk and cheese, but if they can work together, their impact can be a positive one.

The same goes for everyone else. It’s about merging the Rising sign and Sun sign together so that you can become the very best version of yourself.

Take Into Account Your Full Birth Chart Before Dismissing Astrology

I am personally of the opinion that astrology in its current state focuses too much on the Sun sign and this in itself is enough to drive people away from astrology before they have had the chance to dig deeper into it.

This is an enormous shame because understanding your birth chart can truly help to assist and guide you as you navigate life.

Through your Venus sign, you will understand your love style better; through your Mars sign, you will understand your energy levels and what drives and motivates you. Through your North Node, you can understand at a deeper level the lessons your soul came to learn.

As for the Rising sign, if any sign is likely to convince more people that astrology is a truly phenomenal topic that can help us understand ourselves better, it’s this one. This is because it is the one sign people can usually relate to the most.

So if you too have been wondering why you feel you have the wrong Sun sign, don’t despair. You are not alone.

You are made up of many complex aspects, many different vital elements, and a plethora of planetary combinations and each of us is so individual and unique that we cannot possibly be defined by just the Sun sign.

Dig into the intricacies of your entire birth chart, planetary configurations, and astrological houses before you dismiss astrology entirely. You’ll be amazed at what you find.

Are you aware of what is happening with the planets right now? Are you wondering how to master the current transits to bring the most success and abundance into your life? We may have all fallen victim at some point to bemoaning any upcoming retrograde, pointing them out as a red flag for the world to fall apart at any minute.

Maybe you’ve blamed your problems on Mercury in retrograde at some point or looked away when you found out it was coming up soon. Whether you run, hide, or let the planets take the heat for anything and everything, you’re probably not alone in your concern or fear.

Legitimate worries aside, however, a retrograde is not something to run away from, nor is it really something to fear. And with six planets in retrograde right now, you’d better hope it’s true!

In fact, with the right information and appropriate approach, you may find that this retrograde season is a beneficial one for you. Let’s take a look, and find out for ourselves with your survival guide for these retrogrades.

Your Introduction to Retrogrades 101

First thing’s first, let’s unveil the mystery: what is a retrograde in astrology?

It’s actually a lot simpler than most people think. When a planet slows down in its orbital path and appears to be going backward, it creates the illusion of switching direction (even though it actually isn’t). This is what we call a retrograde.

Astrologically, this means that the energy and themes of a planet are considered to be turned inwards.

For example, Mercury, the planet of communication, usually shows us how we communicate with others. However, in retrograde, we experience travel hiccups and miscommunications.

And on the flip side, we have an opportunity to have a powerful inner dialogue with ourselves, perhaps producing creative works with more ease or allow ourselves to have more downtime.

That’s it! In reality, a retrograde is neither good nor bad — it is a neutral, natural phenomenon that sometimes creates a needed balance in the order of the grand scheme of things.

Meet Our Retrogrades: What Planets Are In Retrograde Right Now?

Now that you’ve got a refresher on what a retrograde is and what it tends to mean for us, it’s time to meet the retrogrades that have had a grip on the stars this year — and see what else they have in store for us.

1. Pluto Retrograde

We’ve been experiencing Pluto retrograde in Capricorn for quite a bit of 2021 already.

Kicking off in late April of this year, Pluto retrograde is coming to an end in a couple of months on October 6th, 2021. Still, if you haven’t been utilizing its transformative power as an opportunity for personal growth quite yet, there’s still time to finish strong.

Known for demanding strong internal growth and transformation from everyone and anyone, this retrograde can push us to uncover hidden internal secrets, treasures, and powerful change from within.

2. Saturn Retrograde

Responsible and disciplined, Saturn won’t let us off the hook when it comes to intensity and inner transformation quite yet.

This retrograde started on May 23rd of this year in the humanitarian sign of Aquarius and will be with us until October 10th, 2021. The key to working with a Saturn retrograde is knowing that each action has a full cause-and-effect punch.

If you’ve been slacking off on something, likely, you’ve already seen the consequences show up this Saturn retrograde. Likewise, any previous hard work is more likely to pay off in this part of the year.

3. Jupiter Retrograde

Full of whimsy and good fortune, seeing the planet of luck, Jupiter, go retrograde may initially seem like cause for concern.

Kicking off in the summer on June 20th, 2021, Jupiter will be in retrograde until October 18th. Expansive and philosophical, Jupiter, in a backward motion, asks that we think reflectively about our own values and how we want to grow spiritually.

Ultimately, reconnecting with yourself at a heart and spiritual level is what Jupiter retrograde is all about. Coupled with the others, the stars are surely giving us all a lot to deeply ponder about ourselves this year.

4. Neptune Retrograde

A Neptune retrograde is dreamy, full of intuitive insight, and can feel a little bit foggy.

Like Jupiter, Neptune took to backward movement this summer. Starting June 25th, Neptune went retrograde in its home sign of Pisces and will go direct once more on December 1st. Planet of dreams, illusion, and mysticism, Neptune forcing us to go inwards and get a little “out there” is nothing really new.

Like other retrogrades we’ve discussed, however, Neptune retrograde demands some serious internal reflection and can challenge what you felt to be your reality only a couple of months ago.

5. Uranus Retrograde

Uranus retrograde calls us to think about what we want our long-term adventure to look like.

Freedom-loving and full of curiosity and vibrance, Uranus will be in retrograde from August 19th, 2021, all the way until January 18th, 2022.

Sitting in stable and earthy Taurus, we’re called to consider how we can create freedom and excitement within our routines and structures — something that may seem difficult but definitely isn’t impossible.

6. Chiron Retrograde

This mystery player may not be on your typical astrology radar, but Chiron’s retrograde is not necessarily worth shrugging off.

Known as the wounded healer (both in myth and within the birth chart), Chiron sheds light on where we hold some of the deepest wounds. And from July 19th, 2021, up until December 19th of this year, it will be in retrograde, demanding that we take a serious internal inventory of those wounds.

Your Survival Guide to These Powerful Retrogrades

You’re all caught up! Now you have the debrief on each retrograde you’ll be wrestling (alongside the rest of the world) for the rest of this year. So… now what? It’s time to create a game plan to survive them!

1. Reflect, Rest, Repeat

These retrogrades all share one thing in common — you’re going to be wanting to look internally rather than sharing externally.

This means it’s best to spend a lot of time with yourself and actually have it be meaningful solo time. Whether it’s journaling, art, meditation, or another self-reflective hobby, it’s a great time to put pen to paper and let yourself work with your inner dialogue.

Additionally, you should frequently be resting, as these retrogrades can absolutely take a toll on you if you’re only planning on “powering through.” Sheer willpower isn’t the name of the game here, but rather a healthy balance of rest and rejuvenation.

2. Honesty Talks: Walk the Walk

If there’s one more thing almost all the planet retrogrades ask of you, it’s honesty.

At the end of the day, these retrogrades are here to help you transform and grow as a person. This kind of work is often something we love to reap the rewards from but sometimes neglect to remember how difficult it actually can be.

Digging deep into the nitty-gritty of our innermost thoughts and feelings isn’t always fun. However, it’s crucial to do so with honesty and true self-awareness. You’ll be confronted with your bad habits, outdated behavior, and you might even encounter connections from your past that hold unfinished business.

Now is the time to clean the slate with honesty and good intention.

3. Reward Comes to the Deserving

Looking to skate right by with no work completed? You’re in for a tough wake-up call.

Particularly during Saturn retrograde, what goes around comes around. This is great news if you actually intend on doing the tough labor that needs to get done, like contemplating future plans, considering your values, and perhaps opening up some intense shadow work.

However, you’re not going to be able to reap any rewards at the end of this retrograde season if you’ve been slacking off. In fact, you may just be in for a bit of a rough ride.

4. Learn to Prefer Pause

You’ve heard it before, but we can’t stress enough that good things come to those who wait.

If you’re ever debating whether or not to pull the trigger and complete a risky action, send a text, or start up a business venture in this period of time, it’s going to be more beneficial to put that decision on pause than jump the gun.

Now is generally not the time to start up anything extraordinarily new in a major sense (rather, it’s a great time to plan your next move rather than take it), but of course, this isn’t always an option for everyone.

If you find yourself required to take a big leap, just grant yourself some pause and reflection beforehand to keep the spirit of the retrograde season.

Seizing Retrograde Season with Grace

Equipped with all sorts of astrological information under your belt for the rest of this 2021 retrograde season, you may be feeling a bit more confident already.

Or maybe the idea of being pushed towards the internal world still isn’t appealing. (To each their own!). Retrogrades aren’t always pretty, no matter how necessary, transformative, or powerful they are. Especially coming in hot all at once, it’s understandable to side-eye the stars right now.

That said, it’s always better to work with rather than against the stars. Keeping tabs on the movement of the planets and what you can expect can help you stay one step ahead of the game.

Stay cool and calm, and remember that it may just be over quicker than you can blink!

Have you been searching for the perfect combination of optimistic expression, grounded love, and eccentric release? Then you’d better hold onto your metaphorical hat because this week, the stars bring three radically different transits that somehow blend together to shake things up and help us let go of anything no longer serving our purpose!

It all begins on July 21st when Venus, the planet of love and beauty, moves into grounded, practical Virgo. When Venus was in Leo, we valued grand, sweeping gestures and maybe even a bit of drama in relationships. However, Venus, when in this Earth sign, urges us to show our feelings through acts of service and purposeful actions. Romance takes on a more steady, stable tone now.

The Sun enters fiery Leo on July 22nd, bringing that same positive, outgoing, and extroverted energy synonymous with this sign.

This transit helps you step out of that shell that Cancer season may have brought on, allowing your personality to shine. It’s a time to be creative, be outspoken, and let your inner child step out into the sunlight and play.

Finally, on July 23rd, we experience a Full Moon in the sign of Aquarius. This Air sign eases the emotional pressure that accompanies the Full Moon – a time of emotional release.

This is the time of the month to let go of any pains, upsets, arguments, or even habits and relationships of the past lunar cycle that are no longer serving you.

July 19 – July 25 is a Week to Serve, Shine, & Shed

Venus in Virgo stirs up the kind of loving compassion that can only be fulfilled by showing your love through acts of service – when you’re there for those you love, you’ll feel better about both yourself and your bond with them.

The Leo Sun tells you to shine and let yourself be as expressive as you feel motivated to be! And the Aquarius Full Moon reminds you to let go of any excess metaphorical weight for optimum growth and self-realization.

This week brings many varied energies, but they are all useful in their own way. Going with the flow and following your intuition are particularly useful when navigating such a dynamic week of transits.

If you want to know more about what this week brings for you personally, a personalized astrological reading can help you understand the stars and their current effect on your life.

You are facing a critical time that will test your willingness. If you’re ready to work hard to make your dreams come true, then August is the month for you. The work you perform this month will bring you closer to your dreams and desires than ever, especially if you know how to take advantage of this energy.

It’s time to let your motivation and focus take over.

August is the best time when it comes to numerology than any other we’ve experienced this year.

According to numerology, August 2021 is a 4 Universal month (8 + 2 + 0 + 2 + 1 = 13; 1 + 3 = 4).

If you’ve been lacking the motivation and inspiration that usually moves through you, you can expect those feelings of loving, light, honest ambition to return now. It’s time to let that internal compass of desire guide you toward the things you want most out of life.

Don’t forget to check in on your free daily numerology reading throughout the month!

How to Calculate Your Personal Month Number

To figure out what your Personal Month number is, all you have to do is add your Personal Year number to the current month number. Your personal year number is your day and month of birth added to the number of the current year.

If you were born on July 4th, your Personal Year number would be:

  • 7 + 4 + 2 + 0 + 2 + 1 = 16;
  • 1 + 6 = 7

Just add your Personal Year number to the current month number (8 for August) and reduce if you end up with two digits. (For instance, 13 = 1 + 3).

Now it’s time to discover your August 2021 Numeroscope!

Your August 2021 Numerology Forecast

Personal Month 1

The number 1 represents the Sun in numerology, and this month might not feel out of the ordinary for you. Yet, it’s still a fantastic time for you to focus on your goals and what you’d like to accomplish in the near future. It’s easier for you to focus on those things now, so don’t avoid them.

Have you been neglecting your chores?

It is certainly not the month to ignore your to-do list!

Personal Month 2

The number 2 is concerned with relationships, connections, and group projects as always – meaning that you may have an easier time working with others than on your own. This is a great time for group brainstorming and sharing your ideas with others!

Have you been keeping your ideas to yourself?

Who knows? Your collaborative efforts might lead to something new and extraordinary.

Personal Month 3

This energy may feel more challenging for those directly connected to the number 3, as new work can feel overwhelming or confusing. This is a time to focus on the projects that bring you joy and spark your passion – those are the tasks and jobs that will lead to more success than ever right now.

Where has your passion been hiding?

Try to avoid overindulging – focus only on what you truly want and need.

Personal Month 4

The number 4 is already associated with hard work, making this a great month for you to get things done – which, let’s face it, brings you more joy than just about anything. Let this energy take over and help you focus on the chores you really want to get out of the way.

Have you been having trouble focusing?

With the smaller tasks completed, you’ll feel better able to focus on the big things.

Personal Month 5

Business and negotiations run more smoothly for you this month if you are connected to the number 5. It is not a time for you to be shy or keep your feelings to yourself. Business meetings are filled with joy and connection, so don’t avoid them. Trust your magnetism to guide you.

Have you been ignoring your intuition?

Your career is at the forefront of your mind right now – let your brain focus on that area during this month.

Personal Month 6

As a personal number 6, you might find yourself overly compassionate, putting the needs of others first. Have you been focused on your future or ignoring those instincts within?

It’s time to let your intuition guide you because it has a few good ideas about the future. Focus on balance, harmony, and open communication for the most abundant, profitable month possible.

You love to have fun and get along, but have you been allowing yourself to lately?

Think about how others appreciate you and focus on bringing more of that part of yourself to your everyday activities.

Personal Month 7

Opportunities are waiting around the corner to surprise you now, and your only duty is to keep your mind and heart open to them. In fact, you may be surprised by the new opportunities flowing your way during this month with number 7 energy, meaning that it’s even more important to keep your mind and heart open.

When was the last time you fully balanced your chakras?

Keeping them healthy may mean that you don’t miss the opportunities right before you!

Personal Month 8

While you may feel like experimenting, this is a much better time to approach your older habits and ideals and try to figure out what isn’t working. If you’ve been hard on yourself, this is the time to give yourself a break and trust your gut.

When was the last time you allowed yourself to react?

Following your intuition can lead you to even bigger and better opportunities. Think of the number 8 flipped on its side–the sign of infinity. Like it, your opportunities are infinite.

Personal Month 9

You may be drawn to new and exciting ideas now with soulful and creative number 9, and that makes this an excellent month for you to step outside of your comfort zone. Attempting a new approach may be just what you need to get the right juices flowing properly.

Do you remember your last intuitive experience?

Let your intuition guide you toward the right actions and activities this month.

Personal Month 11

While the Master Number 11 is typically reduced to a single digit in numerology (as are all double-digit numbers), this number holds a special significance for many people, as it connects to both your sense of critical thinking and your extra-preceptory senses.

This is a time to pay even more attention to your intuition than ever before.

Are you hearing certain messages from within? Listen to them now!

Personal Number 22

This is a number that connects to potential, and you may find yourself wondering about your infinite potential this month. Try to remember that you are the only one holding yourself back!

The number 22 at its root has the number 4, so don’t sit back and relax just yet. You’ll still need to put in the work to make your dreams come true.

Personal Number 33

Master teacher number 33 is one of magic, and you can expect more of that magic in the days to come – but it all depends on your own energy. The number 6 is the root of the number 33, which is a maternal force. You might find this energy infusing different parts of your life this August.

Have you spent time cleansing and balancing your energy lately?

If you make room for those activities now, you’ll find this month treating you with kindness and mystical experiences.

August is Full of Abundance

It doesn’t matter what your Personal Month number is. You have every chance of experiencing a wonderful, abundant, and profitable month – as long as you work with the energies coming your way. When you embrace and accept your personal numerology forecast, you can work with that numerical energy flowing toward you much more smoothly and easily.

Trust your intuition, connect with the numbers, and let the magic happen.

What are you hoping for this August?
