Our upcoming release of Cosmic Crumble infused pre-rolls has us seeing stars. But what are the stars seeing? In this post we’ll look at the celestial happenings for August 2022 and what they mean for your sign.
From July 19th to August 4th, Mercury will be in the sign of Leo.
When Mercury is in Leo, expect thought processes to be much more confident and grandiose. This is an excellent time to be thinking about the big picture and dreaming about all the amazing things that could manifest. Little details and logistics don’t matter as much during this time, we’ll all have plenty of time for that for later in the month when the sun enters Virgo.
The Perseid meteor shower will take place on August 11th and 12th.
If you’re an astronomy nerd, be sure to get out your telescope for the Perseid meteor shower. The best time to watch is during the pre-dawn hours and though this meteor shower will take place from July 14th to August 24th, the peak viewing days are August 11th and 12th according to NASA. Though there are not specific astrological implications of a meteor shower, they have been thought to be meaningful for many different Indigenous groups and across ancient mythologies.
August 11th also brings with it the full moon in Aquarius.
The full moon represents the time of completion of a cycle, and it is a potent time to release that which is no longer serving us. In the sign of Aquarius, this moon may have us craving emotional freedom within our relationships. Because it is a supermoon, it is also thought to have more potent metaphysical effects and it may appear bigger and brighter in the night sky.
On August 23rd, the Sun moves from the sign of Leo to Virgo.
The transit from Leo to Virgo season is a gentle one, it allows us to take all the brilliant and exciting ideas we had in the past month and create a plan of action to make them come to life. Virgos are notoriously practical and organized, and their season is the perfect time for the rest of us to get on their level.
On August 27th, watch for the full moon in Virgo.
Soon after the sun moves into Virgo, we are greeted with a Virgo full moon. It is a time to get truly clear on courses of action and releasing the things that are no longer necessary to hold on to. Take a minimalist approach following this moon cycle, make a list of all the things you need to accomplish your goals and get rid of the rest.
