August 2022 Astrological Influences & Rituals

August 5th, 2022: First Quarter Moon in Scorpio intensifies emotion. Whatever you have been feeling the previous 48 hours will multiply. This is particularly noticeable if anger, passion, or exaggerated emotions are already present. 

Excellent time for rituals that involve influencing thoughts or emotions of others. Recommended First Quarter Moon Rituals:

 

August 10, 2022: Moon at Perigee (orbiting closest to the Earth) in Capricorn. Pressure surrounding work and physical-plane decisions weigh heavily on the mind. Pay close attention to your thoughts. It will be too easy to let yourself go down the rabbit hole of negativity or pessimism. Stop yourself before it's too late. Stop the negative vortex and prevent the unwanted from manifesting.

 

August 11, 2022: Venus enters Leo and beauty is inescapable. While this is the ideal time for all beauty treatments (including cosmetic surgery), it’s far too easy to overspend. If you have been considering remodeling or decorating your home, begin now and complete before September 4th.

 

August 11, 2022, 6:36 PM PST / 9:36 PM EST: Full (Super) Moon in Aquarius will appear large and exceptionally beautiful. With Venus in Leo and the Moon in close proximity to the Earth, true romance and the desire for luxury are intensified. This Full Moon is ideal for the Sacred Full Moon Ritual, Devotion Ritual, and Charisma Ritual.

 Generally speaking…

  • Fire Signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) and Air Signs (Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius) will be most impacted by this Full Moon. Although overspending should be avoided, approximately 28 hours before and 28 hours after the Full Moon a wise investment will present itself. It may be a good time to purchase stock, book a service, or invest in your health.

 

  • Water Signs (Cancer, Pisces, and Scorpio) will continue to crave affection and beauty, as they did during July’s Dark Moon. If you are feeling depressed, hold off on love spells Instead, take this time to heal your heart:
Combine 1 teaspoon of Black Walnut Powder, 2 teaspoons of Blossom Ritual Blend, and 2 tablespoons of honey in a 2-quart pot of water. Slowly bring to a boil. Breathe deeply and consciously breathe out all existing anxiety. 
Stir clockwise and repeat “I now draw love and passion into my life. The person whom I seek is seeking me. And now they find me.”
Draw a bath and pour in the ritual water. Fully immerse your body in the water at least 8 times. As you do, repeat the above statement. Before draining the bathtub, fill a cup with the bathwater. Pour the reserved water in a stream that leads from the sidewalk to your front door. If a bath is not available, mix the ritual water with plain water in a large container. Step inside your shower and pour the water over yourself 8 times. You may place a bowl at your feet to collect the water for remnant disposal as described above. 

 

  • Earth Signs (Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn) will be ready for - or take one step closer to - commitment. Exceptionally powerful Full Moon for Devotion Rituals

 

August 19, 2022: Last Quarter Moon in Taurus highlights the contradiction between our actions and our desires. Procrastination may be particularly prevalent until August 21st. 

To avoid procrastination: 

Roll a single ritual candle in ½ teaspoon of Viking Ritual Blend and ½ teaspoon of Attainment Ritual Blend. On a piece of paper write what you wish to achieve. Do not write any negatives. Stand the candle upright on the piece of paper or place it in a candle holder on top of the paper. As you light the candle, say aloud (yes, audibly) your written statement. If possible, burn the candle on your desk, before leaving for work, or first thing in the morning.

You may also do this ritual on behalf of another person, whether they’re aware of it or not. Instead of the piece of paper, use the back of the person's photograph. If possible, attach some biological material (such as hair) to the photo. 

 

 

August 22, 2021: Sun enters Virgo and practicality reigns supreme. The desire for progress and achievement is brought back into the spotlight. Virgo energies can drastically help unravel complex situations. Loopholes will be discovered, bridges will be crossed, and missing puzzle pieces will be found. The next 27 days can bring a great deal of breakthroughs – all to make your mundane life easier. The key to this is to avoid procrastination! Use the ritual above to power through whatever boring tasks are on your plate. I promise that you will be glad you did!

 

August 27, 2022 (1:17 AM PST / 4:17 AM EST): Dark Moon in Virgo highlights failures and missed opportunities. Whatever you have been putting off in recent weeks or months can no longer be ignored. While this Dark Moon casts an ugly shadow, it also has the ability to heal deep seeded wounds and harmful behavior. This is an ideal night to banish all negative influences, including harmful energies and lingering entities (yes, you read that right…). Use this Banishing Ritual to clean up your life. I suggest you follow the ritual as written, using the suggested banishing statement in the instructions. 

 

August 29, 2022: Witch’s New Moon in Libra brings some much-needed comfort and relief. Burn Rosemary around your home. Cook a beloved family recipe or go to your favorite ‘feel good’ restaurant. Spend time with people who inspire and nurture you. 

Note: The Witch's New Moon rises before noon, is most visible at sunset, and sets well before midnight. The moment you see the first crescent of the Moon, know that the Witch's New Moon is upon you. This is the energy necessary to expand on current desired circumstances and attract more of the same. Energetically powerful day to begin love spells and money magick.  

 

Wishing you a beautiful and prosperous August! We will reconnect in September.

Love & Magick,
