Cards of Love:
Your card is The Knight of Cups. This is such a beautiful and positive message for you! If you have a date for Valentine's Day, it is going to be quite romantic. There may be an individual or two who would like to wine and dine you. Perhaps you have a secret admirer. If you are not seeing anyone, and do not have plans to, then this card is pointing to some major self-love that is opening up. Wine and dine yourself! This is a card of chocolates, gifts, and dreamy pleasure, whether you receive them from another, or give them to yourself. The main message here is to allow dreamy sensuality to enfold you. You deserve it. Let your imagination run wild with the many possibilities of enjoyment that you can experience.
Your card is The Eight of Cups. Venus goes retrograde at the beginning of March, and runs through mid-April. The shadow period is already here. When the planet of love slows its course, issues in relationships that are buried deep, may come to the surface. The positive side of this is that if you are willing to work through whatever comes up, then your relationship will become healthier. Your card is telling you to release any old toxic patterns in your relationship. Cleanse them and say goodbye. Let your relationship change for the better. Walk away from old habits that need to go. If the relationship has run its course, then it may be time for it to end altogether. Do not lose heart. All of this is for your Highest Good.
Blessed Be Lovers!!

The lovely Alejandra León Wolfe Rocha a.k.a. The Lioness Oracle will be giving us a forecast for each new month right here on our blog!

Forecast for August 2016:
The month of August begins with a New Moon in Leo on the 2nd. This is also the day that Mars returns from retrograding in Scorpio, returning to Sagittarius. These two aspects joining together untie some ropes that may have been binding. A reversed Ace of Swords indicates that the collective troubles of society, as well as our own personal obstacles, may have caused us to feel like we are losing a battle of sorts. It also speaks to the mind being chaotic and unclear due to merging with many other opinions, arguments, drama, and energies in general. The New Moon in Leo provides a chance to cut negative chords, and return to the solace of self. Leo is a sign of self-esteem, self-realization, and the healing power of it's ruler, the Sun. Self Care is here to say that although we care about others, there is a need to care for our own mind-body-spirit connection. Only when we are thriving and balanced, can we truly provide service, and accomplish our goals. If we tend to our health, the Six of Wands represents an opportunity to be recognized, supported, and celebrated. I will also add, that The Six of Wands came up in the exact same position last month! So this is two months in a row where we are positively rewarded for clearing negative energy from our space!
A reversed Strength card may speak to feeling tired from coming up against obstacles. The Sun being in Leo, the card's ruler, provides a chance to tap into our courage. This is a great month to work with the Solar Plexus, which rules self-esteem, confidence, self-expression, performance, manifestation, protection, strength, and ambition. The colors yellow and gold are excellent to work with in any way, as well as stones such as Citrine, Tiger's Eye, Carnelian, and Pyrite. Having a strong Solar Plexus ensures that even if there are challenges, we are able to face them with empowerment. Be careful not to over-exert however, or push too hard, as Healing says that we are healing from all of the old unwanted baggage that we are releasing. Healing work requires that we rest when needed, as the mind, body, and spirit are all working to purge. This work takes up a lot of energy, so relaxation is a must. If we balance courage and healing, then Justice heralds a time of aligning with personal truth. Having a deep sense of our own moral compass is essential to progress and well-being. If we stay un-grounded and burnt out, then our center will be overthrown. Know when to let go, tend to self, and also...PLAY. Getting in touch with the inner child is a huge part of Self-Care!!!
Love yourself and stay focused on your intentions!
