AUGUST 2013: DEATH
In August we’ll live imminent changes as a result from our efforts, hard work, and actions. Those weak and unstable situations struggling to survive finally crumble leaving space to build upon new, solid foundations. For some, this will be the scariest moment; for others, the time they’ve been waiting for. It all depends on how much are we holding on to our past, the familiar, and our willingness to change. New ventures and businesses start on firm ground; weak ones, close down. Good work receives recognition. Lies are discovered. Truth comes out to the light. New, strong alliances are initiated; the false ones separate. Money runs. Either power is gained or everything is lost. A new life begins. This is a special month for processes of transformation and healing. The path from darkness to light, from fear to confidence, from deceit to truth, from death to life has begun.
