Four Winds Report for Aug. 9, 2017

Posted by Planet Waves


Does expressing your emotions — indeed, even just feeling them in the first place — often feel like a ‘risky’ behavior, like you’re not sure where the guardrails are? How much do you value ‘feeling safe’, and how much do you value being emotionally honest and open?

If Your Birthday is Aug. 9
(The Day of Psychological Leverage) | Leo Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
It’s not always easy to live honoring the truth and nothing but the truth, though it’s always worth it. There can be no compromising your integrity; and you must hold your boundaries in your relationships, whether this applies to money, sex, your spiritual endeavors or any other facet of your life purpose. Others may challenge your integrity, though you will prevail.

Written in the Planets
Does expressing your emotions — indeed, even just feeling them in the first place — often feel like a ‘risky’ behavior, like you’re not sure where the guardrails are? How much do you value ‘feeling safe’, and how much do you value being emotionally honest and open? It seems there’s plenty of physical grounding available, and space is being held, should you feel called to negotiate that point where caring openly could open a door wider than usual. Venus in Cancer is the tip of a ‘kite pattern’, opposing centaur planet Chariklo in Capricorn while making sextiles to Vesta in Virgo and Pallas in Taurus. Today it looks like the goddesses have your back.

“I have just listened to your Part 1 and Part 2 readings and I am amazed at how accurate it has been. Like you have a telescope watching me shed a skin and transform into a totally changed person in the last 10 years.”
— Pauline Jones

If you have a Leo Sun, rising sign or Moon, how are you feeling about your vision for your life, and in what ways are you ready to take action toward it? With a partial lunar eclipse on Monday in your opposite sign Aquarius (your relationship sign), the door has opened to one stage of potential transition. In two weeks, on Aug. 21, a total solar eclipse in Leo signals the second stage of whatever life-shifting process you’re engaged with.

The reverberations from these two eclipses will keep rippling out and developing through the next six to twelve months — and Eric’s 2017-18 Leo Birthday Reading is designed to guide you through it all.

“The past few years have been very difficult on many levels and it has been the readings I get through you that keep me going. Always, absolutely right on, every one of them.”
— Rhonda
