(June 21–July 22)
First Quarter Moon in Scorpio on August 7 uncovers deep domestic wounds, preparing them to receive the healing, cleansing light of consciousness. Mercury in Cancer though August 11 rehashes old topics through new realities. The tension you've endured since mid-April peaks this month; your best therapy will be connecting with Earth's elements. Swimming, gardening, or any activity in which you can touch Mother Earth or be immersed in her elements will help process and integrate the changes being wrought. Full Moon on August 23 and Venus-Mars conjunction on the 24th rightly raises the bar of both affections and expectations to a reasonable height.
