Free Monthly Horoscope - August Zodiac Birthday, Leo the Lion!

Happy August! 
Hope you are all staying cool during these hot weeks. I have enjoy spending my time out on the deck, checking out the mountainous view, and seeing all the various shades of greens, as the trees and greenery seem to be completely peaked right now with growth. Completely gorgeous. Other than spending free time outdoors in the backyard or out in the pool, or the back yard - I've been staying inside when it's too hot, just flirting with the central air, lol. After living in Florida (caliente!) for a few years, I personally prefer the cooler weather in the Northeast, and favor the Autumn and Winter months (I am a December baby!), and love the changes of the seasons.

One of my favorite activities (if weather permits) is camping outdoors to watch the meteors. The annual Perseid meteor shower peaks around the nights of Aug. 11 and 12, and this particular display can produce as many as 50 to 100 fast, bright meteors per hour. Can you say lawn chairs, blankets, and bonfire? Oh yeah baby...

My schedule has been recently updated, as I'm not available for telephone readings during the weekends now, but I am still available Monday thru Friday from 12pm noon until 7pm. We are busy getting the booth ready for Pittsburgh Renaissance Faire. (m'lady hasth received a lovely makeover this year!) So if you happen to be in the local area, stop by to say hello, as I will be at the "So Sayeth the Soothsayer" booth. I will be available for live readings agan, and if you happen to purchase a reading with me (mention that you found me from my website or blog) and you will receive an additional 5 free minutes! The Faire is a royal blast, and it starts August 23 and lasts until September 28, 2008.

Last, I thought I might share my thoughts on some prayer beads that I had recently purchased. Prayer beads can be used how ever you choose to use them, for a religious practice, spiritual enrichment, or wearing them for positive energy and strength. I personally like them for meditation. I came across the Goddess Rosaries by Lunaea Weatherstone a few years back, and recently returned back to her website (there was definitely a calling!) to find the perfect art and design for me. I got the beautiful set of prayer beads to enhance my own personal practice, and I was thrilled! They arrived in a beautifully designed cloth handbag, the pink necklace and art is gorgeous, and perfect for my purpose. The design that I chose felt magical and personalized - like they were designed just for me! She has much more information about the beads, as well as many creative pieces to choose from, available on her website shop at
Thank you Lunaea! I absolutely love them!

Astrological Happenings
We can reap wonderful benefits while the Sun, Mercury, and Venus stimulate our courage and confidence in Leo this month. It's a wonderful time to redeem yourself, to invite romance back into your life, to get noticed for a raise or promotion, and to just have a sunshiny day with family and the kids! The month starts us out with the New Moon in popular Leo, helping us to plant the seeds of our dreams, which is also encouraged with a Solar Leo Eclipse the very same day! This energy is like handfuls of candy and other goodies being tossed freely into the crowd. Will you just sit back and let someone else have all the fun? or will you actually get up off your behind and take advantage of all that is available to you?

Especially when gracious Venus shares her candy with Pluto on August 5, showing you how far a little kindness can take you. Awesome energy for love and work. Then she slides into serious Virgo on August 6, allowing us to take careful steps towards our goals, to replenish our own resources again. Busy Mars squares Uranus later in the day, as Mercury opposes Neptune... which could make you feel like it's you, against the world. The Moon in Libra could help you take a practical approach on any challenges for this day. Saturn is still in Virgo, and now that lovely Venus has joined the classroom, he's gonna ask some tough questions like: "big deal? what's love got to do with it?"

On August 10, Mercury joins Virgo, to help you figure out some questions that you have had on your mind for the months. Communication and thoughts will be clear, which can help you solve issues with some new personal decisions. But even though Venus conjuncts Saturn on August 13, and you are feeling comfortable with the reality of things - you may start experiencing your own insecurities and fears when the Sun quincunx Uranus, with a Capricorn Moon on August 14... where making a change (physically or mentally) may not be as easy as you imagined it to be. If you are on a health kick at this time, or breaking some habits or addictions - your willpower will be truly tested. The changes that you are making should be for improvements for your personal self and no one else, and you may need to seriously look at your own daily habits as Mercury conjuncts Saturn on August 15. The Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius could help you find the answers that you need, if you simply listen to your inner self, and see the signs around you. New awareness and inspirations arise during this time. Later, Venus trines jolly Jupiter, to help you find smart solutions, and possibly, you could get more out of this that you could have imagined.

As pushy Mars squares intense Pluto while the Moon stands strong in Aquarius, you could be faced with your own inner demons when challenged. You may want to try remembering your dreams around this time, for inner direction. Mars then schmoozes his way into Libra on August 19, and his energy could be just what you needed, to make fair rational decisions at this time. Libra tames some of the Mars rough edges, and creates more charm and drive. You may even feel quite generous during this time, and share your positive energy and candy with others on August 21 when the Leo Sun trines Pluto and an Aries Moon. You may feel like things are finally falling into place, and back in control.

Sun enters Virgo on August 22, and while this can be a properous time to take charge and keep things in order for yourself, August 23 quirky Uranus squares Mercury and Venus - and could have you questioning your self and your needs. Should these personal doubts arise (and they are more likely to strike a cord with Saturn the Taskmaster in Virgo), then take the time to question your desires and motives, by making the "pro and cons" list, on paper. This list, written by you, will show you where you are strong, and where you are weak. Saturn is here to toughen you up a bit, to make you a responsible individual when it comes to yourself, your work, and your relationships.

Mercury leaves analytical Virgo enters inspirational Libra on August 28, which will aid in leaving your doubts behind, as you pick up gear and tread lightly to reach an understanding with yourself as well as with others. Communicating with relationships and co-workers can be beneficial to both parties - with a light approach and the right questions, to get answers to what you've been struggling to learn, but with the Venus Pluto square on August 29, this can suggest that just because you are getting the answers... that it doesn't mean that you necessarily have to like the answers that you are receiving. Then by Virgo's New Moon on August 30, you may find yourself planting new seeds to regain your own self-respect, and determined to succeed in your own endeavors. You may even decide on a time-out for family and relationships... but with little Miss Venus coming home later in sweet Libra, you may decide to keep all of your inquisitive thoughts and nervous energy to yourself, and just go along with the flow of things... for now.

Tarot Insight
This month's tarot message shares 'what we all need to know' about this month, and insight comes from the Fool. Don't be afraid of taking chances - or daring yourself to reach further than where you have been. Effort is action, and a move means change, meaning growth and moving forward (if plans have been well thought out). How do you know how the outcome will be - unless you quit analyzing it, and simply just go out and do it. Be different now. Chase the dream. Who cares what everyone else thinks? Just do it already. Make phone calls, initiate communication, be the first to break the ice. Wonderful energy rises from the Fool... from new opportunities, new attitudes, new people, new job, etc. New changes are bound to excite the imagination, triggering a new inspiration to travel a new road. This is all about making some new choices for YOU and no one else. Open your mind, and you open a window (or two) of opportunity.

Happy Birthday!

It's Just a Joke
The inventor of the Harley-Davidson motorcycle, Arthur Davidson, died and went to heaven. At the gates, St. Peter told Arthur, "Since you've been such a good man and your motorcycles have changed the world, your reward is, you can hang out with anyone you want in Heaven." God recognized Arthur and commented, "Okay, so you were the one who invented the Harley Davidson motorcycle?" Arthur said, "Yep, that's me." God said, "Well, what's the big deal in inventing something that's pretty unstable, makes tons of noise and pollution and can't run without a road?"
Arthur was apparently embarrassed, but finally he said, "Excuse me, but aren't You the inventor of woman?" God said, "Yes." "Well," said Arthur, "professional to professional, you have some major design flaws in your invention:
1. There's too much inconsistency in the front-end protrusions;
2. It chatters constantly at high speeds;
3. Most of the rear ends are too soft and wobble too much;
4. The intake is placed way too close to the exhaust;
5. And the maintenance costs are enormous!"
"Hmmmmm, you have some good points there," replied God, "hold on." God went to His Celestial super computer, typed in a few words and waited for the results. The computer printed out a slip of paper and God read it.
"Well, it may be true that my invention is flawed," God said to Arthur,
"But according to these numbers, more men are riding my invention than yours."

Enjoy your summer!
