Get out your Sun Salutes, for Summer is at a peak in August. I am a bit of a Sun worshipper myself and just love being outdoors with the Sun shining in my eyes. I try to get my daily dose of Vitamin D, eat plenty of leafy greens and organic fruits and vegetables to consume the light of the sun that is contained within this manna from the heavens. I practice daily gratitude for the sun that rises and falls without my doing a thing to make that happen. I surrender fully to the wisdom of the universe and try to bring my consciousness to my actions. Surely the best possible form of gratitude is to have fun and to create just for the sake of creation. Find ways to have fun through creating:
- Get your heart rate up by dancing or playing a game.
- Do 108 sun salutes just for the fun of it.
- Try a new recipe and create an edible masterpiece.
- Sing at the top of your lungs.
- Do something out of the ordinary.
- Make a stranger smile.
Here is some astrological wisdom for the next couple of weeks for you:
What a year of expansion it has been. The struggle that it has taken to see what has been hidden and to reveal our true selves and to BE SEEN. Leo is ruled by the Sun and takes center stage. Each of us is the Sun of our own Universe, playing our part as the star of our own movie. What has been revealed to you this year, about your nature? Jupiter, the planet of expansion and the guru has been expanding the sign of Leo, and we complete this journey on August 11, when Jupiter moves into the modest and health conscious sign of Virgo. This move will bring our self-care actions to the fore. Many of us will eliminate what we have found is simply excessive, yet we have the first week of August to get a last taste of indulgence. Enjoy. Celebrate what you have learned. Dance. Party. Play. Leo rules the heart, so get your heart rate up with some cardiovascular activities. Salute the Sun, and shine on.
