August 2023 Psychic Astrology and Personal Guidance for Staying On Track

From the July 22nd post:

Sneak Peek at August 2023 for the Fire, Water, Air and Earth Signs

Fire signs, Aries Leo Sagittarius:  Circumstances from July still need to be straightened out so you can get back to a more creatrive place – it’s a low-key month while you try to keep up with people and projects .

Water signs, Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces: A more successful and positive version of yourself is in the making, and you’ll see that what doesn’t stick now is what doesn’t truly stabilize and support you.

Air signs, Gemini, Libra, Aquarius: What is your cooperative act now? You’ve got to work a lot or sacrifice a lot to get what you are totally aware of that you want to manifest.

 Earth signs, Taurus,  Virgo, Capricorn: You’re in the middle of things that you need to just keep on going with, meeting your goals, working on your dreams; it’s  a “work in progress” month.


August 2023 Psychic Horoscopes – Read your sun, moon, and rising signs

For everyone:

Careful: August 2023 is explosive, wild, and willing to go there. Today’s Full Moon in Aquarius emphasizes  how to respond: Work with your own projects and what you can do on your own. Don’t try to fix others – suggestions aren’t taken well now. Stay in your lane.

Looking Up: There are opportunities initiated by this full moon to create new circumstances and experiences. They are likely to take you further away from what you’ve been doing, and closer to what you seek. Go for it!

Keep Going: Are you getting encouraging results from the positive actions you are taking? Don’t stop! Your practices are a way to ground yourself and stay above the fray in a chaotic month.

Mercury goes retrograde on the 23rd,  a natural time to get things in order, repair what needs fixing, and delve into your own creative world.

Fire signs Aries Leo and Sagittarius: It’s a biding-your-time, lay low kind of month. Although you’re not quite ready to come out with what’s new, it’s also an opportune time for new ventures, travel , and for making plans that carry you into a new and more rewarding chapter of your life.  This sounds grandiose, but you have pretty grand cards that highlight your potential to realize dreams and empower yourself.

Water signs,  Cancer,  Scorpio, and Pisces: You could be wondering if there is an end to something, needing or wanting confirmation about how long it’s going to take…it’s unlikely to be available info. (But try the omen walk  anyway!) It’s a lesson in becoming even more accepting of the unknown, and that it’s okay not to know now.  Expect progress in creative endeavors and personal practices. Keep it up!  You can be supported by people around you who in some way, enable you to go out on your own.  It’s a favorable time to invest in your creative self, take risks and try new things.  More exciting possibilities and territory appear.

Air signs, Gemini, Libra, Aquarius: You’re busy working on a Plan B this August, invoking much mental activity and a fearlessness about new ideas. However, getting what you want is an elusive prize right now. Concrete answers and closure are hard to come by, and Mercury retrograde towards the end of the month can keep things murky.  It could be that one chapter of your life is coming to a close. This limbo doesn’t last forever – meanwhile, take in some comedies, go people-watching…distract yourself if life is frustrating, or try the omen walk here.

Earth signs, Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn: You still have to plug away at ongoing projects that are not yet bearing fruit. It’s still the right thing to be doing…you will be rewarded! Lessons in August: Be able to quickly release what does not have life for a new plan, a new strategy, a more inviting offering. Have no concern about past mistakes or whatever didn’t work – as a creator you must leave your ego-driven concerns and regrets at the door.

All About Omen Walks

(This post was inspired by the Air signs’ August 2023 message, which indicates they could have a hard time seeing what’s concrete and getting closure about their plans. If any of you try it, Air signs or no, let me know how it works for you! It can be done anywhere outside…p.s. I’m posting the Full Moon horoscopes and message for August a little later today, and the previous post has psychic horoscopes and August guidance from the stars as well.)

Have you ever paced around your house. wondering what to do? Try taking your questions outside! Go for an Omen Walk.  “Ask, and ye shall receive” is the operating principle in this game with the Universe…

It’s good to be a little restless to begin with, and have something you want to know, or want help with. Then, it’s good to get in the frame of mind where you’re open to following signs from a communicative Universe.

Here’s an example of a naturally occurring omen walk: you’re at the airport, and in an in-between moment in your life, you can either go down the hall to the left, and board a plane back to your boyfriend, or go right to take a family trip that your boyfriend isn’t invited to, a trip he asked you to skip. It feels like a momentous decision.

Suddenly the couple who just entered the left hall to back home, stop. The man puts down the luggage and starts berating the woman – now they’re both talking loudly.

Just then rounding the corner to the right is a mother jogging fast to catch a plane, pushing a giggling baby in a carriage. His arms are waving, and he’s clearly enjoying the wild ride. You go right.

To get ready for your walk, just get in mind that you’re out looking for omens. Of course, to do this you are temporarily seeing your environment as something you are in a relationship with, that can communicate with you, and you with it.

It’s your move first: you set an intention. What do you want to find out about? Get it in your mind, then let the thought go. Now, you’re just going to take a walk somewhere you feel like going, in the direction you feel like going.

You’re now just taking a walk, letting your mind wander, looking at what you’re passing by.

Once you ask the universe to show you something relevant to your direction, you don’t have to keep on asking. You just have to be in a receptive, playful state of mind. You are open to your first impressions and intuition.

Let’s say you’re thinking of taking a calculated risk with a big upgrade to your business. You want to know: is this the right direction to go in now? On your walk you pass the parking lot of a very fancy restaurant with an outdoor patio. All the cars are Mercedes and BMWs and Porsches…glasses are tinkling on the outdoor patio, and you feel uplifted and comfortable in this elegant and wealthy environment. “I can do this!” your good feelings signal, and you say that out loud to yourself.

Let’s say on your walk, your imagination comes up with a whole new tactic about marketing your business…it just enters your head. New ideas count as signs from the universe! Also, there can be a sudden new internal knowing about what you want.

Let’s say you feel stuck, and stagnant in what you’re doing. You have no new ideas about what direction to go in.  On your walk,  you keep on passing people taking out the trash, and garbage trucks picking it up. The first step, says Nature, is to clean things up and clear things out. You might feel a new ability to finally let go of something burdensome.

To sum up the general plan, after you’ve set an intention and set out in your preferred direction,  be on the look-out for the metaphorical, symbolic,  and literal ways the Universe seems to be giving you an answer.
