Ever heard the phrase, “If you can see it, you can be it?” Well, in August, that self-help cliché is *true*—with the help of a big cat spirit animal with a seriously fierce gaze, according to Alyson Charles (AKA RockStar Shaman). Check out her other cosmic divinations, to help you make the most out of what promises to be a majorly mystical month. 

Wow, what a powerful portal we have been stepping through! Toward the very end of July you most likely began to feel greater clarity and an energy that supports and amplifies everything new that’s come in. As you connect more with your heart, where has it been guiding you? What categories of life have really come to the forefront to shift (money, health, friendship, family, emotional well-being, etc.)? Another question to ask yourself right now is: Am I willing to let even more joy in?

As an entirely new you is taking shape and coming alive, one main theme to be aware of in August is visioning. Along with giving ourselves permission to feel and experience the things we want to, our gifts and powers are waking up more, too, and this is an incredible concoction we need to get used to. Try using your meditation time differently—visualize stepping into a crystal ball that is your future. And as you step inside, where are you? Who is with you? What do you see? Spend some time inside your future, really soaking in all the beauty and positive energy. Bring those frequencies into your cells and let yourself become lighter and lighter while you are in there—and enjoy.

Another way you can use your powers differently this month is with cleansing and clearing. Your body may want to get rid of old energies or any stagnant gunk inside—think of ways you can healthily clear old energetic debris from your temple: drink lots more alkaline water, change how you move your body, perhaps try a clearing method like the Ayurvedic cleanse called panchakarma (I just did it and it was incredible). And clear your other temple (your home), too. Let’s create more and more space for your new life to come alive in August!

Other key essences right now are abundance, charity, prowess, and acumen—this month can bring forth greater or different forms of abundance. Close your eyes, sit tall, anchor the bottoms of your feet to the ground, let energy begin rising up your spine (clearing any old energy), allow your third eye and crown to open, and when that process is complete, speak out loud with an open heart: “Abundance is my truth, abundance is my human birthright, abundance is the frequency I choose to embody. As my cells and auric field fill with this golden abundant energy I rejoice, I let go into the arms of the universe, and I know my life can be filled with ease. And so it is.”

Think about ways you can begin to give back more. Are there mentorship programs, charities, or nature organizations that call to you? Take some time this month to act on making the world an even better place.

August’s spirit animal: the leopard

And our dear animal totem for August, the leopard, is here for many big reasons, including assisting with the other two essences from above: prowess and acumen. By calling the leopard forth to be your guide, you will be able to reclaim more of your power. The times of holding yourself or your power back are done, my friend. And if you continue to hold back and not share your light or gifts with the world, expect to feel it in some way—it may show up in unexpected back problems or other physical expressions where your personal medicine and power are trying in a big way to get your attention.

Be like the big cat with focus in its eyes and a readiness to hunt and pounce on what it wants.

If there are any remaining threads of hesitancy in being your full power, let leopard help you! August is about boldness with your personal skills and expertise—use extra focus this month to get clear on five daily goals and go forth! Be aware of how much you let yourself get distracted, as we use distractions unconsciously to take ourselves out of our power. Be like the big cat with focus in its eyes and a readiness to hunt and pounce on what it wants.

Overall, August is a majestic and mystical month, and you may feel extra potency at night, which would be the optimal time to do any rituals, journaling, or sacred practices. Do them outside under the stars if possible. Along with the mysticisms, be sure to stay grounded, stay in your body and let your new shifts physically manifest and take hold!
