August 9 – 15: Ten of Swords

Here lies a man who has been stabbed in the back; he is utterly betrayed and hopeless. But wait, on the horizon the sun rises in the sky. This is a reminder that suffering is temporary and dawn will always conquer the night. Part of life is experiencing failures, grief and suffering, but you can always rise again.

On August 11th the new moon will rise in loveable Leo. This is a time to embrace the things that make you feel special. What kinds of skills can you develop that will make you irreplaceable? Don’t be afraid to step into the limelight this week.

On the 12th, Mars turns retrograde in Capricorn. If you have been feeling busy and distracted lately, it’s time to recharge and reset your goals. Take a moment to examine the themes of your life. Ask yourself, “what types of responsibilities do I have, and are they necessary for the path that I’m on right now?” Then adjust your goals accordingly. You will begin to feel a new sense of focus and determination.

Stay in touch with your hopes and your fears this week. Know that everything is cyclical, everything changes. Don’t be afraid to try something new and to really check in with yourself from time to time.
