The IDES of AUGUST are PRETTY GOOD, actually

August is here and the monthly scopes are up, and I don't know how many times I have used the term 'shameless self promotion' this month! I mean it's pretty normal in Leo season to get onto our most beautifully brazen self belief on, and this month is no exception -the New Moon of the 3rd gets our moxy going nicely. We have Mars rocking into wildling, free-spirited Sag after seven damn months of brooding in Scorpio; so we've so learnt our lessons about the deeper nuances of our favorite power trips/sexual entanglements (good), and now we're ready to rock on with a more dynamic, Carpe Diem, seize the day ferocity. Visionary Neptune in league with pragmatic Saturn gifts us a nice, magical real

SCORPIO/SCORPIO RISING So as Mars finally slips out of your sign for another few years, it’s time to reflect on what you have learned from your libidinous (ex) ruling planet stoking your fires for the last 7 months.

So to the extent that Mars has awakened your ancient lust to get ahead recently- how are you going with that? Do you feel more comfortable in your skin, and accepting of your own primal sexual/ambitious urges- the better to healthfully express them? Or ar

Relationship communicado

Lol I was just thinking how Venus hooking up with Mercury in the next few days, in passionate Leo, is technically ace for some gorgeously genuine warmth in our romantic dialogues. But then on a raging Full Moon in bossy Capricorn, things can also err to the bombastic side of Leo pretty fast too... It could be like this... or this...

GOAT MOON MAGIC

Full Moon in Capricorn tomorrow morning, 8.56am AEST. Full Moons are always a chance to get in touch with our best, instinctual moxy and in Capricorn it's pretty earthy, pragmatic stuff -so we're wanting to channel our best gut intuition in tangible, effective ways, the better to make the savviest life choices we can this week. It's time to be attuned to our wild playfulness and animal cunning -and stay sharp about it! And Full Moons are also a rising up of emotional energy, especially whatever shizz we've been assiduously ignoring all month... and get groovy with our true feelings. And helpfully, for this Moon we have a grand water trine flowing nicely as follows: The Sun in Cancer says we

LEO VENUS MAGNIFIQUE

Venus has just strutted into Leo, 3.30 today AEST until August 6th; 25 days of magnificent mojo coming up... Venus loves a bit of self expression -whether romantic, creative, artistic etc and Leo is all about this; especially if there's a bit of show-off, performance, drama queen energy involved! In her capacity as goddess of love, Venus in Leo wants her romance gloriously passionate, extravagantly attentive and fully acknowledged (we're talking grand declarations) by everyone involved. Subtlety and elusive games -not so much. The lovely thing about Leo in love is a truly authentic emotional warmth, lots of cuddly, demonstrative physical affection and beautiful, enduring loyalty. When Leo lo

A BEAUTIFUL NEW MOON in CANCER to keep us HONEST

New Moon in Cancer tonight, 9pm AEST. New Moons are always a fresh sense of connection with whatever we're really feeling about life, and in Cancer the Moon is at her luminous best, where we're bound to be emotionally authentic no matter what... Mars in storm phase recently has had us struggling with our primal desires, and perhaps tempted to overanalyse things in order to avoid our true, pressing needs cos they're just too real? This Moon brings us back to our truth pronto. This is a wonderful chance to bypass any intellectual analysis of our current scenario, and get in touch with our gut instincts, raw emo and embrace empowered emotional vulnerability instead. This Moon opposes hot-shot,
