I recently read something that said sometimes we are taken into troubled waters, but not to drown. It happens so that we can be cleansed. This confirms that when things fall apart, they have a chance to rebuild themselves. And many times they can be stronger and taller than the foundation they had before.
Every time you fall, you must get back up because you have life, you have purpose, and you have something that no one else in the world can offer. You have all of the elements of the creator within you at your disposal at every moment. All you have to do is cleanse your inner spirit to reap all of the universes blessings.
As we move into the month of August, many will have amazing news to share while others are in great despair. One of my elders used to share this saying quite frequently, "Some days you’re the bug and some days you’re the windshield." This saying didn’t resonate with me until one day within the same week I became both the bug and the windshield.
Life has many ups and downs, but with an uplifted perspective about life you can and will overcome any obstacle. Whenever you feel discouraged, just remember that you will be lead to see, hear, and know the next steps to take in life. Your reading these words should show you an indication of that. Believe, have faith, and shine brightly you soul being, for you are the light of the world!
Expansive Bliss, Shirley Solano

For those in relationship(s) consider planning something together where friends are not involved. You need your alone time to rekindle that flame of passion.
The new moon on the 14th brings talk about education. If you have children, then look into programs for them early on. The full moon on the 29th pushes your financial sector in a positive direction.

The last quarter moon on the 7th pushes you to slow down. Once you do you can see how far you’ve come and will actually feel like something great is going to happen in your life. The prosperity you are waiting for is near, and the new moon on the 14th is bound to push abundance along. For now the only thing you have to do is wait for some news to know what your next step will be. Until then continue praying for guidance and do things to keep your faith up.
