Many of us have snuck a peak at our Sun signs online and their compatibility with other signs—can those two stubborn but sensual beasts, Taurus and Leo, really endure for the long term?

FINALLY, Tuesday September 5th, mischief maker Mercury goes direct at 28 Leo, near the Solar Eclipse point, focusing are mind on all the events, awareness, and connections that occurred around the Solar Eclipse. This was one of the most challenging Retrogrades for me personally, with my phone getting stolen in Amsterdam, lost luggage for many days, and crazy amounts of back and forth with insurance companies. SURRENDER has been the big theme of this Retrograde, and also some overwhelm with all the many details to pay attention to. A lot of this Retrograde intensity was amplified by the Lunar and Solar Eclipses in August as well – some of us may feel we barely made it out alive, but what we’ve learned and who we’ve met has pivoted our entire existence, while showing us a better path towards daily sadhana–making all mundane tasks a spiritual practice.
Indeed a new cycle has begun—career, travel, relations, friendship, home environment–all are experiencing a seasonal shift, and we may feel our emotions like a prismatic circus of colors, cresting into tidal waves of highs, lows and everything in between. with Wednesday September 6th’s Full Moon in Pisces, in strong conjunction to modern ruler of Pisces, Neptune, and in a tense square to Saturn in Sagittarius. This Moon invites us to drink in the depths of our imagination, while acknowledging any unrealistic fantasies that keep us escaping the necessity of ambitious devotion.
Rather than harsh disappointments, Saturn wants us to get pragmatic, strategic, and realistically optimistic about setting our dream-visions afire with the discipline and structure of daily, monthly, and yearly goal-setting that inspires and catalyzes us to act, not just linger in the clouds of ‘what ifs?’ and nebulous possibilities. This Full Moon is the fruiting of the real meaning behind ‘dis-illusionment’ – detaching from the illusions that keep us swirling in the net of maya and samsara, of chasing desires or even of working, of busying ourselves, without a spiritual purpose behind it.
What dreams needs serious focus to actualize in your life? Why are you pushing so hard to achieve whatever is anchoring you into responsibility’s gravity? Perhaps a shamanic journey, an ego-dissolving meditation, or an encounter with you muse will help reveal the next stage of your work as a vessel for channeling Spirit into the flesh.
Before August 21’s massive, highly anticipated Total Solar Eclipse at the last degree of Leo, visible throughout much of the U.S., we confront our next Lunar Eclipse and Mercury Retrograde cycles of initiation + the glory of the annual Perseid Meteor Showers.
August 7th’s Aquarius 15 degree Lunar Eclipse can be just as or more intense than the Solar Eclipse, especially because of the emotional fluctuations often present in the weeks before and after a Lunar Eclipse. It all depends on your chart: Those with planets between 10-20 degrees of Fixed signs Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, and Aquarius will most deeply experience the fruitful completions, surrendered resolutions, or necessary dissolu
tions of this Super Full Moon energy, with a focus on one’s freedom and authentic sense of self-expression.
With Mars opposite this Full Moon, irritable reactivity could bring supressed rage to the surface, through the trine from Jupiter may help inspire expanded perspective and help focus Mars’ intensity into a catalyzed role of leadership. Also peaking at this Lunar Eclipse is a question of our active creative contribution to humanitarian purposes and a tribe communally shifting the collective paradigm.
My new life on the road as a Digital Nomad and the conferences with other nomads this September in Portugal and Spain is one example of a global shift towards location independent work and a collaborative world community of those who seek more freedom, autonomy, and passion for living life to its fullest. Where is your evolutionary threshold and how do you gently push other’s over their edge during this revolutionary Lunar Eclipse? Expect August to be a month of intense global action including fiery protest movements and rebellious surges for equal rights.
On August 12, Mercury once again turns Retrograde, in the sign of Virgo at 12 degrees. He will backtrack through the final degrees of Leo, where he turns direct again on September 5th. Virgo Mercury Retrograde emphasizes our ability to manage our time, energy, and resources more efficiently and analytically. We will likely become more acutely aware of what is not working in our daily/weekly routines and seek to implement new regimens of greater productivity through better systems. We can reflect on the best ways to utilize energy and time in service, health, and the simple but profound disciplines of daily devotion.
We are already in Mercury’s shadow period and thus, some of us with many planets in Virgo/Gemini, may already feel this Retrograde’s technology, communications, and travel challenges causing havoc in our lives. Be sure to back up important documents, avoid signing major contracts, and manage the above hassle areas with graceful acceptance.
Lastly, just as Mercury turns backwards, the annual Perseid Meteor Showers, the brightest starshow in the sky, peak on the 12th and 13th so find a location far away from the city pollution, and bask in the psychedelic stellar calligraphy of 80-100 dancing comets per hour.

“Before VerDarLuz’s Relocation Strategy session, my girlfriend and I were at a crossroads. I could not live where she was and she could not live where I was. VerDarLuz found the mutual, supportive location where we both wanted to live. Now she and I are setting sail to live our life together.” –
