Energize Your Rematriation
Healthy, whole, regenerative, Sacred
To return to the Divine Feminine in our Work is a revolutionary act. Where feelings balance logic. Where soft power supports productivity. Where receptivity is part of reciprocity. This month, we soften as revolution. We heal to revolt. We return to a sustainable way of Sacred living through our Work.
“Rematriation is a powerful word Indigenous women of Turtle Island use to describe how they are restoring balance to the world…it means ‘Returning the Sacred to the Mother.” (— rematriation.com).
You have a Sacred gift and a responsibility to recover and contribute that gift through your Work.
We transition into August feeling the big bang of Mars, Uranus and the North Node crashing into each other in the Earth sign of Taurus.
At our highest, we can hope that this equates to motivation and change for the highest good of the collective, especially as it relates to all things environmental and economic.
At our lowest, this could be fear and drastic shocks culminating from a resistance to change — yet ultimately it is with the highest good in mind for Mother Earth.
If we can hold space for the highest form of this energy, we can see how this sparks the theme of returning Spirit and consciousness to the land. This is all so we can honor and acknowledge the land to heal her as an act of advocacy and revolution.
It’s going to take work this month though. While all the personal planets (Mercury, Venus and Mars) change signs this month, we have some longer term shifts and challenges to rise up to. And you are ready.
Mars and Saturn, the traditional misunderstood malefics of the sky, square off at the beginning of the month. This is the creative challenge that asks you to take a stand against oppressions you now clearly see in your Work. You can advocate and make different choices.
Saturn continues to have a big say in our lives throughout August, asking us to illuminate the boundaries and structures that either hold us up or hold us back, especially in terms of what we do in our Work thanks to a Sun/Saturn opposition (the midway point of Saturn Rx), and with whom we decide to partner/or not partner, thanks to Venus opposing Saturn.
Venus has more to say this month before she faces off with relationship boundaries. She picks up opportunities to connect through shared values gathered from her healing process and faces what needs awakening in her confidence. All of this gives her what she needs to create those relationship boundaries so that she can reserve her energy for those who are deserving.
It is a month of momentum and change. Observe what is happening in your world, and remember to always see the silver lining of any challenge that may cross your path. There is always a lesson to be gained.
This month we see:
- Mercury enters Virgo (Aug 3)
- Venus enters Leo (Aug 11)
- Mars enters Gemini (Aug 20)
- Sun enters Virgo (Aug 22)
- Uranus Retrograde beings Taurus 18° (Aug 24)
- Mercury enters Libra (Aug 25)
- 2Q Moon Scorpio (Aug 5)
- Full Moon Aquarius 19° (Aug 11)
- 4Q Moon Taurus (Aug 18)
- New Moon Virgo 4° (Aug 27)
How to use these cosmic energies:
- These are the collective cosmic energies available to us all.
- There is nothing to be fearful of. Get curious about what we need to learn.
- For larger shifts, you’ll feel the energy a week leading up to and away from.
To personalize energies:
- With conjunctions/meetings or lunar activations, look to the degree of the activation and find where that degree lives on your natal chart.
- Your astrological house in which the degree occurs is where in your business or life more information is available for that cosmic shift.

“Look deep into nature and you will understand everything better.” — Albert Einstein
This week, Mercury entering Virgo just in time for another earthy gathering (with Mars, Uranus, and the North Node all touching in Taurus) means it’s the time to be grounded and pay attention to the Earth around you and the resources you have to play with. It’s time to be pragmatic.
Inline with how we are a part of nature, there is also a nature to us that WANTS to keep things neat and tidy in our inner worlds and outer worlds. Without putting pressure on yourself, reflect on how you have organized parts of your life you can parallel and refer to when looking at what else needs to be done in your business and life this week.
Paying attention to where you want to be more effective, organized, and intentional, while also regenerating what belongs to you, will be the grounded momentum to carry you forward as this month begins.

What action will you take to create and regenerate resources?
Mars and Uranus meet at Taurus 18°, blending drive and innovation together with the collective needs of the North Node also in Taurus. We are being asked to get motivated to fight for a sustainable environment – as a collective potential and need for all of our highest goods. Taurus represents the health of our land’s physical resources. The resources we all need to create and regenerate instead of extract, in order to thrive.
We are at critical mass environmentally. And there are lots of little things YOU can do to help the regeneration process. From consuming less, to consuming sustainably, to buying produce from regenerative farmers, to donating to land protectors — the options are endless. You can also decide to not buy into extractive economies of fossil fuels, plastics, and big agriculture.
This is the perfect season to reflect on our relation to the earth. Let’s all do our part to return Spirit back to the land that supports us.

Mercury enters Virgo
11:58 PM PT | 2:58 AM +1 ET
What can you diagnose, understand, and make whole in your Work?
For only 3 weeks starting now through August 25, Mercury speeds through its home sign of Virgo. Mercury loves being in Virgo because it can take all the data it learned through being in its Gemini archetype, and make a plan to do something with the analysis. Mercury in Virgo wants to categorize, systemize, organize, and diagnose so that it can create a detailed, yet simple prescription. This is a great time to put things together in your Work in a holistic and effective way.
Get organized! Remember, to be organized is not to be perfect. It’s to build in places where mess can happen.
If you have any planets or angles in Virgo, as Mercury zips by, expect renewed clarity on how to simplify themes of those natal energies in your Work.
For Luminaries with Mercury in Virgo…
If you have your natal Mercury in Virgo, you are ultra organized, love evidence, are detail oriented, and can err on the side of being a health nut.
You can get caught up in overthinking every little detail and making sure things are perfect. Remember that there is no such thing as perfect. Will your attention to detail add to your final result, or take away from the enjoyment? To simplify is your sweet spot.
Use your mental power to create automations, turn data into actions, and systems that allow your Work to flow.
Use your hands to do the work in the minutia that brings your heart, mind and soul so much joy.

2Q Moon Scorpio
4:07 AM PT | 7:07 AM ET
Act and investigate
What will you eliminate?
With the moon at the 2Q phase and gaining light, it is time to initiate and take action on your goals and New Moon intentions. No more planning, no more thinking — time to act. In Scorpio, action is through elimination of what doesn’t need to be. To truly let go, Scorpio requires truth and trust. Elimination isn’t simply letting go to surrender, it is knowing exactly what is not needed.
Harness Scorpio to dive into the shadows to bring them to light so you can decide what to eliminate instead of collecting things and sweeping them under the rug where they collect and back you up.
There is no hiding.
Week of August 7 – August 13, 2022
“I do not adjust myself to please the world. I am myself wherever I am, and I let the world adjust.” ― Glennon Doyle
Venus has a ton of action this week aspecting outer planets in retrograde, while the Full Moon in Aquarius helps us take her encouragement forward and break free of the chains of “should” energy. This is a time to look at the Self you are and what that Self needs and values, and give it to yourself as you surge forward.
The collective needs us at our best right now, and this week can be a time to dream again even if we feel limited and worn down. Your power has room to shine through, as the Sun squaring Uranus also reminds us that we must empower ourselves even in the darkest of times to let creative tension propel us into our next manifestations.
Stay optimistic even if things feel a bit dark, for the light is ready to shine through. Illuminate how you are loving or not loving to your unique self this week. If you do not love yourself and all your fun wacky parts, no one else will.
Repeat to yourself: I AM LOVED

What vision is now here?
There is something subtle and magical today that feels so true and powerful. Something that has been in your soul for so long is finally emerging in the conscious world. This something is most likely more energetic and etheric than tangible, but if money has been on your mind, money could be finally arriving. It’s as if someone has put on your rose-colored glasses and now you can see the truth and beauty that was already there. You feel an openness despite the challenges that allow you to feel compassion and kindness. You are in awe of your vision come to life. If you choose to do anything with this energy, be gentle, be magical, and experience the pleasures of the life you have envisioned.

What does discomfort want you to understand about your limits?
Mars in Taurus creates friction with Saturn in Aquarius. You may feel like you’re stuck between a hard place and a rock. Mars wants to drive forward and Saturn can put on the brakes. No one will be able to run away from this discomfort. And perhaps there is something to be learned. What does this discomfort tell you about your limits and your drive? Experiences may drive you to take action and respond. Notice. Be easy on yourself and others. We are all in this together. Breath into any frustrations. Make decisions for the long run. Band aid actions will not do.

Intense attachments to values and power
What decisions must you make around money and power plays?
The songs “Love Sex, Magic” by Ciara and Justin Timberlake, or “Blood Sugar Sex Magik” by the Red Hot Chili Peppers have the energy of the day. In every creatrix, there is the ability to manifest power and magic. With the energy of Venus and Pluto, there are power plays vying for your attraction. With an opposition, there is a clear illumination of the forces at play and it is up to you to take the side that aligns with the path you want to be on. If you do not choose, it will be chosen for you, and more often than not you may not feel things are going in the direction of your highest interest as a result. Maybe there is a win-win situation if you can figure out how to understand and share the power without losing your own.
In your life, what is the power that is being displayed right now? Emotional power? Money power? Sex power? Choose based on your deepest values, for that way you will have no regrets.

Creative brilliance on the horizon, you got this.

Connect over heart-centered passion
Who are your people with shared passions that you can connect with?
Now through September 4, Venus zips through Leo where she values creative projects, play and pleasure even more than she normally does. While Venus is about attracting the people and resources we need to thrive, in Leo she connects and magnetizes in the best way when she is leading from her heart and following her joy. It’s important this season to keep it heart-centered, for Venus picks up opportunities to connect through shared values gathered from her healing process. This will ground you in what you care about as you face what needs awakening in your confidence.
All of Venus’ loving, bold and vibrant energy gives you what you need to create those relationship boundaries so that you can reserve you energy to those deserving of it.
For Luminaries with Venus in Leo…
If you have your natal Venus in Leo, you love connecting with other bold, confident and creative souls. As you too have that bling and flair in your own style. Self love, self adoring, originality all the way.
You appreciate shining brightly and attract more of that, when you are sharing your brilliant creativity and style. Be sure to shine brightly without stealing the thunder from others. There is a way to share the stage, you do it so well!
You can get caught up in craving admiration and recognition by the world at large, and wanting those who love you most to fawn over you.
In your Work, flirt with the World (not to manipulate) but to show what you appreciate in your fellow person. Harness your bold style and art. Glam it up, add more gold, wear all the accessories, no apologies needed.
No matter what, use your inkling for performance and magic to bring magic to whatever you want to spark joy in to draw in the people and resources you need to thrive. .
Use your creativity to be the best version of you who can shine brightly and warm those who are seeking your light. Your audience is waiting for you to connect to them with your heart and show them how it’s done!

Breaking Free of Conformist Shoulds
Interpretation co-written with Natalie Miller
First off: the Full Moon in Aquarius shines hard this year. It’s spotlighting what’s NOT working, and insists you Get Real, fully and completely.
Your ability to manifest your destiny depends on it.
Getting Real with this Moon means fully being with and sorting through your emotions. ALL OF THEM, especially anger. Anger is your ability to take a stand and draw a line in the sand – your boundary. The only way out of the emotional intensity is through moving your bones, so stomp, dance, climb, swim, dig in the dirt, howl at the moon, or or all of the above.
In this moment, you are ready to relate differently to That Which Makes You Unique and Different. Cultural conformity has probably made this aspect of yourself difficult, and maybe even a source of self-judgment or shame.
This lunation insists you stand fully in your Uniqueness, and witness the alchemy that happens when you incorporate all parts of yourself. Deep shame then transforms into profound compassion. What makes you Different ascends into that which makes you Desirable. You then feel free to turn away from any one or any place who wants you to conform, and toward the opportunities and communities that want All of You.
One more thing. Last month’s Full Moon (in Capricorn) awakened you to ways you can revolutionize your Work, either by returning to ancient technologies or by leaping into the newest ones. By this lunation, if you haven’t yet begun your revolutionary shifts, outside events will demand you get to them.

“One way to get the most out of life is to look upon it as an adventure.” — William Feather
This week is the most packed in the month, so pay attention to each individual day to notice without judgment. All the planets are making aspects or shifting into new signs, ingress in astrology lingo. In your observation, tune into these energetic shifts in your life and Work. What does it feel like?
With all this shift in energy, center, ground and get ready to expand on your idea of self to reinvigorate those around you too.
It is still Leo season, a time for creative self discovery and divine transformation of our ideas of who we are.
Revolution is here, it’s a process, not a destination, and this week may feel more cosmic and impactful toward what your purpose ultimately is in this moment. Take advantage of these energies by looking at the themes that come up each day — you have many to choose from based on each planet, from self-criticism, to reciprocation, to motivation to comfort!
Whatever you choose honor it by taking being open to all outcomes in stride as you move forward this month.

Persevere through self-criticism
What creative processes need restructuring?
It’s the midpoint of the Saturn Retrograde cycle, with the Sun facing off with Saturn in the sky. Like a full moon phase between your creative vibrancy (Sun) and mastery (Saturn), feelings of doubt (Saturn) may run high as you have a new perspective on your priorities and boundaries that allow for true creation. It may feel like just as you are getting somewhere with your business’ creative projects that your passion has fizzled. Be aware of this feeling, as in a few days it will be gone. Instead, harness this Saturnian criticism and see it as encouragement to double down and dedicate yourself to the brilliance of what you do in your business (aka your Sun!). It is through focusing on the creation and keeping your eye on the long game goal that you can build confidence and harness this energy.
If you have lots of fixed energy (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius), you will feel this need for mastery more intensely.

You have an opportunity opening, showing you how to act on your inner power. Harness this energy as it’s highlighting where you might be repressing your energies in uncertainty or insecurity. Recognition of these energies (instead of avoiding them) gives you information on exactly what you want to do to call your true inner powers. Focus on what you want to bring in, for this will help you access that transformative power.
You know what needs transformation. Listen to your body to take action.

Through your Mercurian actions (talking, writing, organizing), opportunities could come through that revolutionize old ways of doing things. This is a short transit, so make use of this energy as you have it. If you wait, it will be gone.

Relationships are here to help you organize your business. With the Fire energies, you are focused on your passion and inspiration in partnerships and attraction.

Harness this energy to amp up the heat in your attraction and go big toward energizing the people around you for bigger and hotter collaborations!

With the Taurus 4Q moon today, stop pushing and rushing through things to stop to smell the roses. You may feel your creativity and ability to be confident hitting some limits, and the worst thing you could do is to keep pushing and forcing it. Give yourself a break and luxuriate. It is by finding peace in the chaos of the day and in yourself that you can connect and soothe your body.

Motivation can be scattered
What is your true motivation and are you prioritizing the right things?
Mars enters airy chatty Gemini for an extended stay until March 26, 2023, thanks to a Mars Retrograde in October. Normally Mars spends about 6 weeks in each sign. But for the next 6 months, Mars will be here for a longer time. While in scattered Gemini, the energy will be interesting, to say the least. Mars isn’t exactly comfortable in Gemini, as he has no clear way to focus his energy. While things may feel scattered, you can really dig into this energy by prioritizing sharing information and engaging with others. Mars loves initiating and gaining momentum, and at the highest expression Gemini loves creating dialogue and getting curious.
With this extended season, see how you can prioritize gaining info, sharing info, and taking the lead by opening up a conversation — be sure to do just as much listening as chatting!
In October, when Mars moves retrograde in the sky, you’ll get to reenergize your thought leadership and reaffirm your truth. The upcoming Mars Rx is the collective remedy we all need to relieve rampant misinformation, using our thoughts and ideas to be a Word Warrior. Advocate and energize through speaking up, writing down your thoughts and healing through finding the truth.
Mars energy has traditional associations with warriordom, fear and fighting vitality .
A more expanded look at Mars energy is about physical vitality and taking initiative.
And in our Work, Mars energy is the energy to turn fear into action, fight into advocacy, vitality into motivation, and initiative into leadership.
In Gemini, Mars gains momentum through words, thoughts, dialogue, neighborhood and speaking — all Gemini themes.
If you have any natal planets in Gemini
As Mars moves through Gemini, expect your natal planets and angles to get a boost of energy. Be sure to channel this activation productively. Do not try to block it for frustration and anxiety can build up. Instead, harness this energy to advocate, energize and activate your natal planets .
For Luminaries with Mars in Gemini natally…
You are a word warrior. You use your intellect to outsmart and win.
You are motivated by learning and take action when ideas light up your curiosity.
Your ability to take lead and go where your ideas flow can be a great strength.
Don’t dismiss your scattered interests. You can go wide with your interests as long as you are synthesizing and taking action on all that you know. Be aware to learn purely for learning’s sake. Information that you hold won’t do anyone any good if it stays locked up in your head.
Take lead and action by sharing and cross-pollinating what you know.
Advocate through speaking up and using your pen as the sword it deserves.

“The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled.” — Plutarch
With so many events happening this week, pay attention to how Mercury is front and center with a total of three aspects happening, all the while the Sun and Moon both enter the intellectual and communicative planet’s home sign of Virgo.
There may be other aspects happening as well, with some outer planet squares and retrogrades in the mix, but don’t lose sight of how your mind will be overflowing during this time, granting you an opportunity to catch the excess. This is a time for you to really get clear and focused on what you want to pay attention to, and what your intuition wants you to integrate into your mind.
Do not make the mind an enemy at this time — it has never been more primed to help you get clear, stay objective, and be in your power through your business!

Flow with your intuition
What intuitive process is being illuminated now?
Mercury in its home of earthy Virgo illuminates your daily practice with a dose of inspirational intuitive flow. When they work in tandem, the axis of Virgo and Pisces create infinite flow in your creative process and routines. When they are in Neptune and Mercury, this aspect gives your attentive detailed work a sense of mysticism.
If you are open to the signs that your intuition is constantly sending you, today will feel amplified, as if your doors are wide open to receive it all. These downloads may not make sense at first, but if you stop trying to figure it out and playfully get curious, you will get an insight into your most effective creative processes. This may sound subtle, yet you get to decide today on how you can think things through. Would you rather struggle with the details or go with the flow and be inspired to do easier?
Your process is now illuminated.
Especially intuitive for mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces).

Assess and make whole
What does effective, sustainable, healthy progress look like for your Work?
Now through September 22, we are in the season of Virgo where we radiate our creativity through getting organized, keeping healthy, and paying attention to the details and cultivating a daily practice.
Virgo’s efficiency is more than how we can make things faster and more profitable. To be in the shadow of Virgo is to pursue perfection and productivity through over thinking, over serving and over doing.
Efficiency doesn’t take into account the values of Virgo, such as health of the whole, sustainable productivity, restoration, absorption and steady growth.
Instead, let’s practice the next evolution of efficiency — effectiveness.
With Virgo effectiveness, you may feel inclined to diagnose the overall health of your business and synthesize the pieces of how everything works as a whole. Remember that the health of you, the business owner, is as important as the health of your business – your soul’s extension. The whole includes the good and messy parts. They all are part of the system. The whole includes restorative rest; it isn’t always time to Work.
Both you and your business must be healthy in mind, body and spirit to the best of your abilities, so that you can create a business that allows you to accomplish your soul’s purpose while serving others.
For all the Virgo Luminaries, the healthiest and happiest of solar return (birthday) to you.

Reform sustainable progress
What physical resources in your life and business need upleveling?
Uranus steps on the brakes today at 18°55′ to head in reverse through January 18, 2023. Uranus is the last outer planet to join the annual retrograde train. Mostly a subtle transit, you’ll notice it the most during the change in directions. Uranus is going oh so slowly right now, and for the next 6 months will crawl back only 4°, drilling into the middle decan of Taurus.
If you happen to be someone with planets or angles between Taurus 18° – 14°, Uranus will be revolutionizing your natal energies and asking them to innovate and change things up for a brighter future. (Want to know how to figure this out? Take my mini training Written In The Stars.). In Taurus, this revision and reclamation likely will occur with your physical resources aka money, food, shelter and environment. Globally, we all need this more than ever as we are at critical mass with climate and environmental issues.
Also on this day:
Venus trines with Chiron, asking you to bring awareness to opportunities that connect through shared values gathered from your healing process. The reform of the day allows you to face what truly needs reawakening in YOU.
Especially game changing for fixed energies (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius).

What relationships can you speak to over shared ideals?
After a brief stay in its home of Virgo, Mercury sails into Libra to get chatty over relationship building through the shared love of ideas, art, poetry and connection.
Now through September 23, Mercury spends time in Libra before revisiting Virgo during the next Mercury Retrograde, which starts on September 9 to bring light to how we process, rethink and redo our relationships.
Libra is about connecting to the right people that help us along our business journey. This includes ideal customers, affiliates, business partners, anyone with whom you have a commitment through a contract or money exchange.
Mercury in Libra is about understanding and expressing your needs around those Libra themes in both your life and Work.

Rebalancing Restorative Routines
Interpretation co-written with Natalie Miller
The New Moon in Virgo supercharges your power and motivation to co-create and collaborate with fellow heart-centered creatives. You see clearly that for the collective to thrive, we must all work together with one another in a way that honors the health of our bodies, our minds, our co-creativity, and our planet.
The powerful T-square among Venus, Saturn Retrograde, and Uranus Retrograde asks that you innovate your environments – physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual – to better attend to the health of yourself and your collaborators. Any requirements or routines, practices or policies that are overly rigid must go. Any energetic imbalances – over-work and under-rest especially – must be corrected.
Any place that expects us to be machines rather than humans must be reformed. And any endeavors that extract from more than contribute to our planet and our collective, are prime sites for innovation. It is time fully to support rematriation, a concept brought to life by a Haudenosaunee-led initiative that is dedicated to connecting Indigenous women and, in their words, “restoring the sacred to the Mother.”
With Mars in Gemini squaring the New Moon, there’s ample, activating, “Yes We Can” energy now. As you receive insight into ways you can support balance and sustainability in your health, your Work, your collaborations, and your environment, take action.

Discomfort moves quickly
What constraints in resources and partnerships do you need to cut?
For a few days around this exact meeting, people may show their true colors and investments may come to a critical deciding point. What people and money issues are making you feel creatively trapped? This feeling may come as a surprise to you. Yet, you need to decide now to say goodbye to someone — could it be maybe a business collaborator or client? Or you have to let go of an investment, which could include maybe stopping a subscription or canceling a contract that isn’t of value for you. The space you create by saying goodbye will allow you to focus on the things that matter. Make the decision today and wait for a few days to inform the people, projects, investments you want to cut loose.
Especially divisive for Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius).
