The energy of August shall be one reminiscent of that great friend we all have who is always looking out for us. She sees us passed out cold after a great night of partying, with chip bits in our hair, mouth agape and mascara smeared down to our neck (Seriously? Our neck. How did we manage that?). She gives us a sympathetic head tilt and thinks to herself, "Precious child. Partied just a little too hard," then reaches down to smooth our ratted hair out of our face and she gently whispers, "Hey love... Good morning..." We crack our puffy eyes open to see her glowing, well-rested face above us, smiling sweetly. Then, with her soft hand resting on our cheek, she pops us a swift smack and quips, "Get your shit together," as she tosses another bottle of champagne into the garbage.

Most of us know that after party routine all too well: we clean up, or CONSOLIDATE, and then find some way to recover and get back on track, or PRIORITIZE. Those are the key concepts this month, and the only way to recover from the shock many of us probably feel after July. We experienced the growing pains, but August shines a light on those troubling times and helps us see that they weren't all for naught...
We slide into August from a bit of leftover chaos and perhaps too many things on our plate. Some of you may be feeling stuck, spaced out, irritated or anxious. You may also be feeling a kind of inertia that comes from not knowing where to begin.
When we are in this state it is even difficult to acknowledge how much we have grown and changed over the last several months. It is much easier to moan, complain, blame others and feel sorry for ourselves around what has not manifested and how hard life seems to be at the moment.
What will set the patterns of the month up in a positive way is to begin with truly honoring the full moon influence (July 31 4:42 AM MDT) and to be disciplined about embracing the opportunity to reset your intentions at a higher frequency. Forget the past, erase July and step into something new. It is a new month and the fewer old patterns you drag into it, the better.- Lena Stevens
We're all in this together. God speed, my friends!
