Intuitive Patterns for the Month of August 2011

Yes, we are living in a schizophrenic world.

The month of August is creating opportunities to leap beyond the old reality and then somehow at the same time there is a sense of continuous delays in daily patterns that need further unraveling.

I am sure all of you are feeling the oppositional forces of the astrological Cardinal Cross, as is runs over us once again.

Some of you are asking, “When is this going to stop?”

Honestly, I am beginning to wonder that myself.

There seems to be a constant pushing and pulling of energies in our daily life that seems to bring up one more thing, then another, then another. You may feel as if it will never end. You may feel as if the universe is nickel and dime-ing you to death. Just when you think that you are on level ground financially there is one more financial emergency.

When I feel psychically into the unfolding pattern I would have to say that we are going to feel pummeled by the waves of change until 2015.

Now that does not mean that we do not get a hang of it at a certain point. I like to think of navigating this time as me being a seal pup learning how to flow with the waves. The pup has to learn how to relax with each larger wave until he or she is completely one with the force and intensity of emotional change. A seal pup does not see the waves as a problem. It just is what it is. That is what I try to think of when I feel into this time. It is just another wave coming and going in our life. This too will pass so we might as well relax and flow with what is. There is no need to resist, as resistance will only get you pounded into the sand at the bottom of the ocean.

This month the cards are full of waves. Those waves are making us more aware by pounding us repeatedly into the sand until we start to pay attention to our surroundings. Eventually, you learn (just like a seal) to be constantly aware of the water and waves. You learn how to (metaphorically) keep one eye open at all times and stay aware of the constantly changing circumstances that is life. And somehow still flow.

August is a time to take action. August is a time to look at the situations that are exhausting you and choose another pathway. There is hopefulness with the warmth of the August sun but there is also a desire to find the direction and finally point that arrow of yours someplace that allows for more fulfillment and joy.

At the beginning of the month, it will be easier to feel more grounded and stabile internally and externally. It will feel as if the intense energies are attempting to calm down and give us a small break. But it will only be a small one because the planets are always moving and change is the name of the game at the moment.

Since Uranus and Pluto are squaring, those two powerful agents of change that are going to aggravate and evolve us whether we like it or not. Anything that is stagnating or anything that needs to be reorganized is going to change. But other aspects finally allow us a much-needed dose of mental reflection and introspection.

There have been recent moments when we needed to take an honest look inward but the energies were too emotional to have objectivity and clarity. But now there is a doorway to a new level of understanding. We finally feel as if we have the energy to look inward and allow a more sensible side of us to make more practical choices for our life.

It is one thing to have spiritual knowledge but quite another to know how to apply it into your daily life. This is a month of finding the doorway to practical application to the challenges that are facing us. But now we will have the objectivity, internal calmness, and clarity to finally feel as if those shifts are possible. We will also feel as if something internal has settled and that will allow us to relax with our choices because we know for certain that they are correct.

So enjoy this month. Take action. Find the pathway to your own inner clarity with each choice. Feel the movement within that allows for a feeling of grounded understanding and acceptance. Give the seeds of hope some water and light and see what might begin to grow.
