Let's just spend a moment memorializing the craziness that was August, shall we? Your birthday month was marked by two insanely intense eclipses – including one in your own sign. If that wasn't enough, Mercury was retrograde, creating daily chaos. Suffice it to say, there are MANY reasons to prefer September, the least of which is the gorgeous Full Moon at the start of the month. This lunation will make the first weekend as sexy as all get out, especially since it lands in your house of intimacy. If you don't currently have a lover you will surely want to find one this weekend, Leo. The Full Moon doesn't actually arrive until the morning of the 6th, but it's so powerful that you'll feel it days in advance. The day before brings Mercury out of retrograde just as Mars moves into your money zone – so things are looking way up for the remainder of the month. The New Moon arrives early on the 20th, resounding with powerful financial themes. This is the perfect moment to plan out your next six months of budgeting, earning, saving and best of all: SPENDING. Note that you may have an insatiable longing for pretty fall ensembles all month long. Resistance to alluring shop windows may be futile.

No matter what happens this month, just remember that you're the birthday babe – so what you say rules. With a coterie of planets in your own sign, your way is the only way. Late last month there was a New Moon at the first degree of Leo, starting you on an immeasurably important life journey. It continues in August with the start of eclipse season on the 7th. This first eclipse is a Full Moon Aquarius, your opposite sign, and the location of your relationship zone. This is a major event that evokes something that began last winter – was there a development for one of your important partnerships around that time? This is the next step, but note that even if it feels messy and emotional, it's all happening for a reason. What's making this eclipse/birthday season even more intense and confusing is that Mercury Retrograde arrives right in the middle of it all on the 12th. This particular retrograde hits your money zone, so be extra careful with your cash. Of course if you want to buy yourself something glam, you should go for it – after all it IS your birthday. Just make sure you actually have enough cash in your account to cover it. While you're busy minding your money, prepare for the holy grail of all eclipses in your history, officially arriving on the 21st, but energetically alive for weeks beforehand. This New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Leo is all about what comes next for you, Leo – it's a total personal revolution in the form of a major revelation. Something BRAND NEW is coming into your life in the next six months, and the changes that are happening now are merely laying the groundwork.
