We’re all on the tail end of a super challenging series of eclipses, and tensions might feel high right now. After such an avalanche of emotion, it’s normal to feel on edge, worried, or anxious for little to no reason at all.
However, the purpose of July’s eclipse season was to prepare you – to clean house, so to speak – for all the glory that awaits you in August and for the rest of the year. Here’s how you need to be careful not to get in your own way, because happiness is here, if you’re able to embrace it.
(March 21st to April 19th)
Life is not going to go any slower after this August. This summer may have been your time to relax, recoup, and re-strategize exactly what you want to do with the coming years, but the next few weeks will provide ample opportunities for you to put all of that in action. You need to stop choosing the easier route just because you’re less intimidated by it. Imagine the life you actually want to live, and go after it. Your only risk of self-sabotage is your lingering self-doubt. Get out there and prove to yourself you never had anything to fear.
(April 20th to May 21st)
You’re going to begin the month feeling as though you’re finally on track, after what’s felt like years of being kind of lost and scrambling. Whatever you were doing during the times in which you were feeling most calm, most pleased and most alive are exactly what you need to keep doing, and August will provide you time to really rethink how it is you want to live. Your risk of self-sabotage is denying yourself what you really want. Be honest, and go live it.
(May 22nd to June 21st)
This month is all about leaning into the good parts of life, and allowing yourself to be free of the never-ending, nagging fear in your mind and heart. Your life is only ever going to be as good as you allow for it to be, and you’ve got so much going for you already. Trust that you’re where you want and need to be, and that your peace of mind is more valuable than anything else you could ever pursue.
(June 22nd to July 22nd)
This will be a big month for you, Cancer, especially romantically speaking. You’re adjusting or are about to adjust to a huge life change, one that you’ve meditated about and are happy to embark upon. But that doesn’t mean you might not find yourself on some rocky waters. Even if everyone around you is having a meltdown, be the calm in the storm. Remember why you’re here, and how much you have to look forward to.
(July 23rd to August 22nd)
This can be a life-changing month for you, Leo, particularly with the solar eclipse in your sign on the 11th. You’ve been working for the past year or two on getting over the past and rebuilding a more exciting future for yourself, and now, it’s time to stop doubting and start living. You’re exactly where you need to be, and your only risk of self-sabotage is forgetting that fact.
(August 23rd to September 22nd)
This is a month in which you will be craving some grounding. Your new “normal” is starting to take hold, and you’re finding your way yet again. You may have had to weather some storms in the past few years, but now you’re on a new path, and this month will be about strengthening your conviction. You’re at risk for self-sabotaging it all by trying to reengage in that which you know is a dead-end. If the business, relationship or friendship didn’t work the first time, there was a reason. Learn from it, and move on.
(September 23rd to October 22nd)
This month is meant to be one in which you feel happy and grateful and find yourself just kind of floating through. You’ve spent the past 7 or so months working so hard on yourself, and if you need a reminder of how far you’ve come, remember where you were at the beginning of this year. Things have completely, radically changed for you, and now it’s time to start savoring them. You’re at risk for self-sabotage by simply overthinking what should be easy. Be present, and allow your feelings to come and go. When you stop resisting, you’ll realize how happy you were all along.
(October 23rd to November 22nd)
This past July was a lot for you, Scorpio, as you came head-to-head with some of your deepest, most entangled feelings of jealousy and want. This month is for you to relax, and assimilate yourself into a new sense of normalcy. You’ve been through so much change (and all for the best) but you’re at risk of regressing if you keep living, thinking and behaving the way you always have. Relax, start slow, and consider this month the beginning of something new.
(November 23rd to December 21st)
You have so much to look forward to over the coming weeks, so don’t let your uncertainty get the best of you. Sometimes, you have to remember that you don’t always need to know exactly what’s going to happen in your life next week, month and year. Sometimes, the real magic is being present while it unfolds day by day. The best way to ensure the positive future you want is to show up in the now, and give it all you got. Don’t sabotage that opportunity by worrying more than you live.
(December 22nd to January 20th)
After going through what has felt like a major purge over the past few weeks or months, the rest of the summer has pure bliss in store for you. If you don’t feel like you’re quite in a space to receive all of that joy, try at least leaning into feeling a little more relaxed, or at ease with what’s happened in your life. You’ve had a notoriously difficult time with certain losses and unexpected challenges over the past few years, and it’s time to reap the lessons and put them to bed. You’re at risk of self-sabotage this month by continuing to ruminate. It’s over, it’s done. Your new life awaits.
(January 21st to February 18th)
It’s time for a new phase in life, and nobody feels that as strongly as you, Aquarius. Whether it’s socially, romantically or professionally (but most likely, all of the above) you recognize that what you had been leaning on to get you through for years is no longer going to work. You have to think harder than you ever have, try for longer than you ever imagined, and completely reinvent your life. You’re at risk of self-sabotage if you slip back into your old habits and patterns. It’s a new world, and that requires a new you.
(February 19th to March 20th)
The last two lunar transits opened your darkest closet and made you remember some of the memories you’ve been running for years to try and forget. The truth is that everyone we’ve loved and who has hurt us remains with us in some way, especially if we don’t properly mourn. This was your time to grieve, Pisces, and this August, as you begin a new phase in your life, it’s time to lovingly release everyone from your past and all that they taught you. Remember that those who hurt you are projecting from their own wounds. Forgive them, and then try to extend that compassion to yourself, too
