1 Personal Year
9 Personal Month
This is actually a big month for you in the grand scheme of your entire year. It’s time to wrap up and finalize certain situations or a particular phase in your life. And this won’t be a particularly seamless flow—you’ll need to consider an entirely different route in order to move forward into your bigger, better, expanded existence. It’s time for decisions. Firm decisions. No wishy-washy “maybe’s” right now. It’s truly the month to put any leftover mess (or loose ends) from last year into the proverbial compost pile. And you’ll also be met with the need to move into the new you that is certainly being created—or simply allowed to come to the surface right now.

Understand that some of the longer delays you may be experiencing will burst forward and break free of the cluster f@*k. It will be a great relief to feel forward movement, despite the possible tension and anxiety that might accompany your engagement with all of the happenings the month brings you. Be prepared for strong emotional pulls around August 9th or 15th. You’re being forced to read the writing on the wall—and the undeniable message is that you can no longer proceed “business as usual” in the same non-fulfilling way. You’re at that crossroads where you’re asking yourself which way to go, yet it is uncharted territory—without the benefit of a GPS. Even though—truth be told—you always have your GPS at your disposal when you tap into your intuition. And then trust it. And then act on it.

In some ways, you must go a bit backwards in order to move forward. Clean up the residue of any and all relationships, situations, and old “stuff” that keeps pulling you back into old belief patterns or patterns of identity that you now only vaguely resemble. You may find this a good time to conclude some business relations or activities and simply focus on tying up anything on any level you see fit. And let’s not forget our personal lives. Don’t be surprised if there are matters to work out in your intimate circle, probably around August 18th. Honestly, you’re expanding so quickly that you might find yourself feeling as though you might explode or blast off into the next stratosphere.
Just remember, as you expand and evolve you can’t help but outgrow certain relationships, places, or roles you’ve decided no longer serve you. You might decide to carry a few extra Kleenex tissues around with you this month. Tears are healthy—or whatever emotional outlet of your choosing—so set your sights on unabashedly shedding some in August when you feel the impulse. These can be tears of joy, frustration, sadness or anything in between. Moving through the emotional landscape is key. There’s nothing better than a good cry to clear out your system and detoxify your mind, body, and spirit. And if crying isn’t your gig, perhaps some added cardio, meditation, or whatever allows you emotional outlet.
It’s time to actually let go of some long-held beliefs you have that are holding you back from formulating the full “new you.”
It’s time to actually let go of some long-held beliefs you have that are holding you back from formulating the full “new you.” Esther Hicks (of Abraham Hicks) says it best (and I’m paraphrasing here): “Beliefs are just thoughts you choose to think over and over again. If you change your thoughts, you change your beliefs.” And one of the thoughts I’m personally exploring in more intimacy and depth lately has to do with the notion of duality—of polarity and opposition. And the idea that the co-existence and acceptance of what Abraham-Hicks deems “contrast” is something that is becoming more and more vital in its true integration into our lives. This is a key theme for you this month. Can you see how to balance and “hold” what appears to be two diametrically opposed ideas/stances/viewpoints? And allow them to not only co-exist, but also to feed and nurture each other into a stronger and more complete whole?
August is not only all about completions and letting go, its full of the energy of giving. So if you’re involved with any projects devoted to humanitarian causes, they have the potential for take off now. Also, any impulse to eliminate clutter in your life is right on target. This can be by literally “cleaning house” and also by giving to others in whatever way feels right to you. By the end of August, you’ll be feeling renewed energy around where you’re going and what you’re doing. Know that there is a sense of tension for you in August given that your entire year is based on new beginnings and action, while this month insists on winding a few important things up for good and saying “good-bye” as you move forward. Meanwhile, use your time wisely and remember: “Courage isn’t the absence of fear, it’s the acceptance of fear.” You’ll come out the other side refreshed and lighter.
