Wednesday, August 1:: Mars in Aquarius Square Uranus in Taurus 

Have you been feeling something bubbling beneath the surface of you? Are there any dreams you’ve been itching to pursue, any people you’ve been wanting to be straightforward with, or any fleeting ideas you’ve been tempted to run with, maybe all three? Don’t dive head first into these ideas just yet. Wait to make important decisions until next week that could potentially backfire if you’re impatient.


Take time to jot down everything that you feel is important + needs execution on - stream of conscious style. Projects that need to be started, conversations you need to have, ideas that need refining, contracts that need to be signed, + important decisions that need to be made. Fold up the paper + put it away in some place that you won’t forget. Come back to it next week + circle everything that is still important to you. Put it on your calendar. This is also a good time to invite harmony into your home. Move around your furniture, light a candle to set the tone, or buy/forage flowers to brighten everything up. Trust in your divine intuition + go for it, you’re ready!

Take a bath using your favorite bath salt. This is our favorite {moon magic bath salt}


Monday, August 6th:: Sun in Leo Square Jupiter in Scorpio
Remember those ideas you jotted down last week? If you’ve given them time to cool off + still believe that they are worth pursuing, now is the time to take the leap. Just make sure before you do that you’ve double checked, triple checked, + yes, even quadruple check that these ideas aren’t fueled by the ego.

Venus ingress into Libra
will help to smooth out any ruffled feathers. This is one of her home signs, inviting harmony, sweetness & cooperation. Make your space beautiful.

Tuesday, August 7th:: Venus in Libra trine Mars in Aquarius

During this time, if you have the option to work with a team or by yourself to achieve a goal, choose working with a team. Teamwork makes the dream work! ; )

Look to the Taurus house in your chart to see what area of your life is being activated and reviewed. Collective themes include land management & finances. Uranus will be retrograde until January 2019.

Wednesday, August 8th:: Mercury conjunct Sun (Mercury Cazimi) 7:06 pm
It’s important to tune into your heart today (more than usual). Pay attention to where it leads you + other small ideas unrelated to the heart that you may normally pass by.

Thursday, August 9th:: Venus in Libra square Saturn in Capricorn

Today is the day to revisit your commitments + priorities. Review your strategies in regards to them + make any adjustments that are needed. Own your side of the street, be the one to start the conversation about time management and restructured boundaries.


Friday/Saturday, August 10/11:: Moon conjunct North Node

The clouds in your mind are starting to part + with the newfound clarity comes new insight into what you want. Your path will become known + it will come from the heart. Be ready to tune in!


Saturday, August 11th:: New Moon in Leo/ partial Solar eclipse

As we move into the New Moon, we hold the potential for big things to happen. What’s the best future you can envision for yourself? Envision it + believe it but be sure that everything comes from the heart + not the ego. You’ve got this!


To start off the New Moon with a fresh eye, we recommend making a ‘Dream Board’ to hang somewhere in your home where you’ll see it every day. Gather pictures that resonate with your dreams + stick them on a large piece of paper. What is included in this ideal future of yours? Take action from your heart!

We recommend using your Inspired Action Elixir to get the ball rolling + make sure you’re getting the most out of your time!

Take advantage of the groundedness of today to find your footing. Lessen your mental anxieties + take mindful steps towards building your future. Remember that it’s not about how much you can get done but the quality of what you do.

Have you been feeling like you’ve been working really hard but it hasn’t paid off? Although you may feel like you’ve been spinning your wheels, hold tight for a little longer, forward motion is on it’s way!

Monday, August 27th:: Mars stations direct 28 degrees cap

After being in retrograde for the past two months we’re finally ready to move forward. Take your time as you start to gain momentum. Everything you’ve been envisioning is ready to be manifested. Make sure you move one step at a time with clear + decisive choices.

Tuesday, August 28th:: Mercury in Leo square Jupiter in Scorpio

You’re gaining more support for those visions you’ve been creating during the past two months in retrograde. Whatever it is that you’ve been dreaming about doing, it’s time to initiate it. You’ll have the confidence to take a risk or sign a contract. The only failure is not trying ; )



    To get a jump start on stabilizing for the shifts these cosmic shifts will instigate, below are the flowers I recommend for this lunar cycle:


    *Western Prairie Fringed Orchid

    Electric communication, Tap into the collective. Capacity to download. Intuitive perception
    Dissolves: trying too hard, not knowing what you don’t know, barriers to understanding others. 
    Superpower: Being in tune with heart wisdom + communication + using that to connect. 

    *This elixir is only available in our 6-month Flowerevolution Program if you sign up before July 15th. 


    *GAMECHANGER: Infused with 4 of the most powerful flowers for ease, effortlessness + expansive growth, Gamechanger reminds us of the beauty of *being* in the present moment ~ without feeling like we have to do anything. Rather than being seduced by distraction, Gamechanger helps us get comfortable with resting in the being state.

    *Experience GAMECHANGER with a flower elixir, aura mist, balancing serum+ anointing oil!
