Revelations #195
~ August 2023 ~

2017 Zach loves CarlosEvery August, there are many animals and creatures of our beautiful planet that are honoured, so we can learn more about them and celebrate them. This month Cats, Dogs, Bears and Elephants are highlighted to name a few.

We need to take care of these animals for they do not have a voice. Many of these animals are now endangered.

Here are two of my favourites pictured:
Zachary loves Carlos.

Also for this entire month, it is Platypus Awareness Month, also its the Paws Fur Planet Challenge. Looking at ways we can reduce our beloved pet footprints on the planet along with ours.

In August my Singapore Masterclasses are happening online. If you would like to join in these weekend masterclasses, please contact me asap so we can prepare your folder and other bits for you. More information about these masterclasses below.

Heaps of Specialness,



1. Astrological Forecast for the Month

Venus in Leo

On 22 July, Venus in Leo began its retrograde cycle and it will go direct on 3 September. So we continue with this beautiful loving and confident energy throughout all of August. Venus extends her blessings, energy for peace and harmony, and force for love and relationships.

It is time for relationship development. It may be figuring out what value you have added to the relationship. What relationship patterns have you manifested, if any? It's time to move things along in the relationships area, allow healing to take place, and if necessary, make the necessary adjustments.

Full Moon in Aquarius 3On 1 August, we have a Full Moon in Aquarius. This month's Full Moon ushers in a very dynamic pattern. We get to enjoy our inner confidence and sense of power. Additionally, we may take advantage of our mind and clarity of thinking.

There is a lot of expansion between Body, Mind and Spirit during this Full Moon because it is squaring Jupiter. The lesson is how can we use this energy without getting too involved, while being impartial and compassionate.

Reminder that we are in Leo season, Leo is the polarity of Aquarius and Leo is the best at displaying leadership and authority qualities. Aquarius is about staying objective and humanistic. Leo can be focused on ego and Aquarius is very much focused on humnaity.

Square Venus Uranus 1On 9 August, Venus and Uranus are in a square. This energy pattern is intriguing because it emphasises the importance of valuing your own individuality and feeling free to express it. It will play out for the first two weeks of August.

The message of Venus square Uranus is to embrace your uniqueness, accept who you are, and go forward and accomplish it with confidence. It's really quite lovely energy. It urges us to challenge the rules if they don't make sense to us and to dare to be different, Do it in a calm manner, with loving energy rather than with force or a fighting spirit.

Opposition Mercury SaturnAlso during this time, we have Mercury in Virgo opposite Saturn in Pisces. We can now work on honing our critical thinking. This critical thinking is extremely very strong because Mercury rules Virgo. Mars is also spending the entire month in Virgo as well.

Mercury in opposition to Saturn says its time to use your analytical, rational and meticulous thinking. Use your critical mind with creativity, fluidity, and compassion.

Time to manifest these ideas and thoughts into the real world. Manifesting in the real world refers to the process of turning your thoughts, desires, and intentions into tangible outcomes or experiences.

Square Moon UranusOn 16 August we have New Moon in Leo. This New Moon is also square Uranus. It's all about dramatic originality here.

Some things are so powerful when you allow yourself to be distinctive, dramatic and self-assured whilst being confident doing them.

Its not about getting into anyone's face or I'm going to rebel against the world because I have to be different in order to be unique, no. It's about I'm going to live my uniqueness in a loving way because I know who I am. The difference is significant.

Conjunct Mars MercuryAlso occuring at the same time as the New Moon is Mercury conjunct Mars in Virgo. The key message with this combination is say what you mean and mean what you say. Just try not to be rude or mean about it when you speak and communicate with others or with yourself.

If used properly, Mercury conjunct Mars, particularly in Virgo, may be exact and thorough in communication. Can be quite logical, precise and analytical.

Otherwise if operating from the shadow side can be aggressive, harsh, too critical and picky, sarcastic and nasty especially when under stress. Be mindful of this and make good use of it.

Mercury Retro 16On 23 August, Mercury in Virgo will go retrograde. This is why critical thinking will be required with anything Virgo-related. Verify all of the specifics, including your appointment times and contact information. Just double check everything!

Make sure you are grounded and focused and suppress whatever critical analytical tendencies you may have. Love should permeate all you do in order to capitalise on the current Leo vibe that is going on.

Think compassionately, as Virgo's shadow side can be very harsh when they are under immense stress. A critical eye that sees what is wrong rather than what is right and that can be projected both outwardly to the world and inwardly to oneself.

Full Moon in Pisces 9 Blue MoonOn 30 August, we have a Full Moon in Pisces. We have two Full Moons in August, the second Full Moon is known as the Blue Moon.

Because Saturn is also in Pisces makes this Full Moon particularly spectacular. Quite different from the Aquarius Full Moon we experienced at the beginning of the month.

The benefits from this combination is more concentrated thanks to the Pisces Full Moon, especially allowing yourself to move forward with compassion. You'll realise that it's acceptable for me to stand out and shine, to appreciate who I am, to set my boundaries and say no, and to feel more in charge and stand in my authourity.

What a wonderful powerful month, happy breakthroughs!

2. Tarot Cards Insight into the Energy of the Month...

Every month, I turn over 2 cards, one from the top of the deck to represent the Conscious energy and the other from the bottom of the deck to represent the Unconscious energy. I am always thinking of the big picture and exploring for the collective.

These two Tarot cards are loaded on my Tarot Mastery private Facebook group for students of Tarot in Action to explore and share their insights.

I asked the Tarot cards: What is the energy for the month of August 2023?
What do we need to be mindful of for this entire month?

I turned over Ace of Wands in the Conscious position and 2 of Pentacles in the Unconscious position.

11 Ace of Wands2 PentaclesTotal different energy from July. Aces are wonderful energies, I love seeing them when they show up.

Aces are all about triumphant success. They are new beginnings on the next level, you are ready to go another round. Very accomplished and victorious energy. You have aced it.

Wands has to do with work and career, skills and talents, projects and tasks. It is masculine and a fire element. This energy is very fertile.

The Aces of Wands suggests whatever you are working on will be seen as a very accomplished achievement. Look at the branches actually growing and all the green leaves sprouting. The leaves flying off are yods, which are extra added blessings and benefits, like having the cream and cherry on top.

The 2 of Pentacles is also a very successful energy, you can see the green lemniscate around the two pentacles suggesting you are balancing two things that are of value to you very well. There is no way you will drop them.

Green is the colour of fertility, it is a living growing energy. The figure is also wearing green shoes, he looks like he is in motion or dancing to keep the Two of Pentacles balanced.

Pentacles also have to do with wealth, money and things that are of spiritual value to you.


Looks like August will be a very successful month, with lots of growth and possibilities. You will need to keep juggling the two most important values to keep it all nicely balanced and moving forward.

Successful job showing some profit. Work is finally paying off. You love working on this, its of value to you and the growth is proof that its working well. You love doing it.
