The Sun flows through your 12th house this month bringing great opportunities for finding inner riches, but there is also a catch … The same house that rules this place of hidden power, also holds your deepest fears. What sits as a potential for you at this time is nothing short of pure alchemy ~ taking the deepest and darkest muck in your being, coming from your ancestry, past-life, and this life time, and converting it into shiny, and very valuable, gold is the mission 🙂
Any psychological or spiritual work done at this time holds even more power than usual. Hypnosis, affirmations, subliminal messaging audio’s, and meditation are all amazing ways to use this energy.
Shamanic work is also extra powerful at this time. Anything you can do to gather lost soul pieces from people, places, and experiences will be even more profound and effective now.
The 12th house is also the house of dream-time. Your dreams may be more active now. Valuable insights about patterns, programs, and future trajectories may be more readily available now. Consciously using the subconscious space for problem-solving and manifesting is especially potent now. Posing a problem that needs solution to your subconscious mind before going to bed can help you to use the dream space to effectively work things out, helping you wake up with solutions. Lucid dreaming (where you become aware that you are dreaming as you are dreaming) may be more active now and if you would like to foster this experience, intentionally working on this now may be very fruitful.
The 12th house is like your attic: there is a lot to clear out and go through in this space but there is also things there that you will re-find that you will be happy to have back, and other treasures yet to explore.
Quality sleep is a cornerstone of vibrant health and well-being. This period of time may bring the topic of sleep up in a bigger way through increased trouble sleeping or for some other reason give more impetus to focus on improving sleep. Also, this time could bring important information or breakthroughs in the arena of sleep.
It is an amazing time for retreats, rest, and unplugging from technology.
This placement is a preparation for your birthday/rebirth time coming soon. It can be tempting to engage in avoidance behaviors as the 12th house is activated but consciously and gratefully greeting these things swept under the rug can make for an even more powerful birthday/rebirth/manifestation period.
Often in the weeks before birthday time, the things you DON’T want make themselves more apparent to better prepare you to make your birthday wishes to create the things you DO want 🙂 Do the work now and reap the rewards soon.
This month is also chock full of artistic opportunities. Magical, flowing, creativity is very common during 12th house transits so if you can get time alone to process and create it will likely be very productive. Also, if you already are working in the arts, opportunities for your craft to go to a bigger level could come now. You can say yes to opportunities that feel good that may come your way. Lots of opportunities will abound now, just make sure to read paperwork carefully and make sure you know what you are getting into and take care not to overcommit.
You may feel drawn to bring your hobbies into the professional arena or make advances in your professional artistic work. If you are drawn to push some things out into the world that are ready to be seen, follow your intuition and the synchronicities to guide your decision-making.
August 2022 is the last month before 1. Mercury retro 2. Mars retro 3. Eclipse season – all ramping up in September.
It is very important to note that for most of August we are still in the awesome last open window of 2022 that is free from personal planetary retrogrades that started June 19 and lasts through August 21.
Because of this “open period” free from personal planet retrogrades that goes until August 21 the first few weeks of August is the last best time of the whole year for launches and any commitments or purchases that are intended to be long term. The retrograde energies that will cover the rest of the year starting in September are great for many things but anything requiring ambition, drive, impetus, extra energy, yours or others whose help you need for the project, may better be instigated and followed through with if possible in August.
August can be a fantastic time for big purchases, agreements, commitments, big moves, job changes, launches, and anything that requires titanic energy, follow through, and zest.
Strong Leo energies bring radiant creativity and focus on children, romance, hobbies, and fun! This is a great month to do something big that you have always wanted to do. Leadership projects or anything that puts you or your creations out in front of people is well-supported at this time.
Strong Virgo energies help with editing, discipline, anything detail-oriented, anything on the topic of streamlining or organization, and also with anything in the health or wellness sector. If you are wanting to make some headway on a new regimen, have diagnostics, find new practitioners, supplements, diet, or other practices that require routine, additionally pets and animals.
