It's officially Leo season: time to get in touch with your inner child, and let the star you aspire to be shine. It's time to be authentically you.

This month is a busy one so you'll need to prioritize. There are two major dates to look out for this month: a new moon on August 2 and a full moon lunar eclipse in Aquarius on August 18. New moons denote new beginnings, whereas lunar eclipses mean almost a year's worth of full moons wrapped up into one big one. Sound scary? Well, it can be life-changing, particularly if you're an Aquarius born between February 11 and February 19, a Leo born between August 11 and August 21, a Taurus born between May 10 and May 20, or a Scorpio born between November 12 and November 22. If this is the case, you'll feel the eclipse more than anyone. It will gift you a direct message, one of bravery and authenticity—so be you, and stop making excuses.

That said, we can all expect some shifts with the lunar eclipse. They can affect our home, family, and level of emotional comfort. They bring the subconscious into conscious awareness so that you can confront your own mental blocks by integrating newly discovered parts of yourself. In order to do so, you have to allow pieces of you to disintegrate and die, so that you can change and grow—which is necessary for your future. Get ready to see what the lunar eclipse has in store for you—and pick up your power product to help you make the most of it.
