At the beginning of every month, I discuss the energies and gifts of the month ahead and how we can best use them to make our lives satisfying, meaningful and productive. I also choose a card to support the energies of the month. The deck I am using this year is The Good Tarot by Colette Baron-Reid, and August’s card is EIGHT OF WATER.
August is a month for bold thinking, big ideas, new beginnings and exciting possibilities.
August supports you to let go of the past and to move in those new directions, trusting in positive outcomes even when you can’t see that far into the future yet.
This is a month for moving up and moving on. Upgrade your thinking, your relationships, and anything in your home or office that is broken, failing or past its use-by-date.
Don’t get caught up in thinking about what might have been and having your head stuck in the past this month. This is no time to keep looking back over your shoulder. All of your power is in the present moment, so live today well and keep your eyes on the horizon.
August energies support asking for that raise or promotion, asking that special someone out on a date, putting your talents and gifts and ideas out into the world – doing the scary thing even if you risk rejection, because it is better to have tried and failed than to remain stuck forever.
You’ll also feel a need for quiet time this month. There is so much to think about and a little solitude will help you to come to a place of peace with your decisions, for healing, and to feel into your best possible direction forward. There is strong energy about for spiritual connection, psychic development and inner journeying in August.
Best crystals this month? –Pink Opal and Prehnite
Pink Opal provides emotional balance, releasing fear and worry, and filling you with a sense of emotional peace.
Prehnite opens your Heart Chakra, and helps you develop a strong connection between your heart and mind. Great for making wise decisions, and developing confidence in yourself. It helps you to face your challenges, and think on your feet.
Essential oils to support your journey?
Rosemary helps you to remember the courage that is already within you and to draw on your inner strength. Lavender supports you emotionally and boosts your self-confidence and self-belief. Cypress helps you to overcome your fears and move from inertia to action. Bergamot lifts your mood and helps you to feel both courageous and optimistic. Frankincense is the Master Healer and is fabulous for connecting to your inner wisdom and for deepening your meditation..
These oils can be used singly or they can be blended – they all work beautifully together.
I’m passionate about essential oils and their capacity to support our wellness journey and our spiritual and emotional wellbeing. If you’d like to know more or want to source the oils I recommend and trust visit this site or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Are you ready to learn how to use Oracle or Tarot cards intuitively? Whether you’re a complete beginner or if you’ve been using cards for years you’ll love my new online course Journey of Transformation. I don’t teach you how to read cards the traditional way – I show you how to use them as a tool for your intuition!

August gives you an opportunity to step outside the normal routines of your life, and to challenge yourself to make the kinds of decisions, and take the kinds of actions, that might be uncomfortable, but that can also lead to growth and change.
It’s a chance for you to allow yourself to move in a new direction, or to do something you’ve always dreamed of, but had been afraid to try.
Be bold this month. Take a risk. It will be worth it.
Trust that I’m holding space for you to be all you came here to be, and I’m cheering you on!
All my love, Nicole xx
