We’re all getting a good lesson in surrender this year. This is the final exam.
The distorted ego wants to believe it’s in control of the events of our life. We can and should take control of our own behaviour. But within us we all have a part of our willpower that is interested in effecting certain external outcomes at any cost. Addictions to substances, feelings, other people, behaviours, and mental patterns loom large here. These compulsions to control or seek to appease others are driven by our deepest wounds, the ugliest unseen parts of ourselves underneath the conscious self. We feel we MUST make something happen, or else. These obsessive patterns are inherently draining to our spirit. The grasping energy means we are giving our power away to forces external to us. The idea that we need a particular person, situation, or outcome ignores the potential within us to adapt to all situations, the grace of going with the flow. It entraps us in fear, wanting to avoid the experiencing of deep emotions and going inward, we try to arrange external circumstances to avoid these powerful feelings.
This new moon we all have a unique opportunity to release destructive psychological patterns that keep us imprisoned to specific ideas or outcomes. This could present physically if you are dealing with lower vibration energies of abuse as you will find a way to easily dissolve those patterns over the course of the next month.
Whatever is meant to you will flow to you. You don’t need to create intense experiences with addictions, ego dramas and creating pain for others. There is enough pain and pleasure already within you waiting to be processed. Begin your work on those and you will find your addictions to the external melt away. Imagine the bliss available to you when you begin to allow your destined blessings to flow towards you. ✨
Imagine your life without that crippling habit, without that need, without fear. What would it look like?

Remember the elusive dream? The one that you still believe in but has seemed so far from you lately? Get ready to receive the key to making these dreams real. Grab it. Now turn.
Illusions have been broken. Good! Step into your power by honouring your individual purpose, and do *something* to make what is real better. Whatever that something is.
Saturn turns direct on September 6th – we’re out of training mode. It’s time to show what you can do. Small steps will mean big changes for your personal growth, the environment around you, and the lives of others. You are clearer now about what you ARE responsible for and have released yourself from entanglements that don’t belong to you. You know how to do things in a better way? Then show others! Use your criticism to improve and perfect without falling into the victim trap. Become an advocate for your own wellbeing and the wellbeing of those people and causes you care about.
Starting this new moon at 17° ♍ on September 9th, you’ll suddenly be very clear about the service and work you will need to do for *others* in order to make your dreams of peace a reality. You can already see yourself and others more clearly for who they are thanks to what you’ve learned during this summer of retrogrades. You have discovered where you are valued and needed. Now it is time to do the service.
Details matter. You may feel discouraged but no contribution is too small. If we are working in alignment with our heart and what we value, these small gestures of care come easily. Where you are struggling right now will show you where in your life you are simply going through the motions.
Mantra: I work from the heart in my highest ideals, busy perfecting the world.

Whew. It’s Leo season. Introspective breakthroughs abound, so purr and stretch out a little and get ready to roar. Time to show out your mastery with your efforts. To act in community to get your creative efforts heard. The world is ready for seismic changes already in progress and we’re in Leo season – so the bolder the better! You can do more when you work with others. Even if your instinct is to shine on your own, draw on that regal energy to make full use of your subjects… Er… community 😉
And also… in another matter. Seek nurturing in attention to detail, loving criticism of where you can improve – even if it sits in direct opposition with your dreams of intuitive psychic understanding and all-one-ness. The Sagittarius moon will help you laugh off any hurt feelings, keep it light, embrace new ways of doing things, and genuinely want to learn/improve.
Lots going on at the start of the season, but remind yourself that you are surrounded in a loving support network to raise the bar and shine!
