The Month of August
The Energy of August
August is the month of Harvesting
The month of August holds the energy of Harvesting. This month holds space for each of us to harvest the seeds that we have planted throughout the year. The farmers have always used the end of summer to harvest crops to prepare and store them for winter.
This is the time of year to begin harvesting the seeds that you have been planting. What actions have you been putting off for another day? It is time to take action and move forward with the seeds you have planted?
Some considerations include:
- Make a list of your dreams and desires. What is keeping you from reaching them?
- Send time in solitude pondering what is working and what is missing in your life right now.
- Do a gratitude ritual for all the goals you have achieved and things you have manifested already this year.
