For Rat natives, the month of August brings the I Ching hexagram of wind over water (59).
Now you’re pulling things together. This might be the culmination of a project in which you use your resources, knowledge and experience to finish something. Or you might join friends and family, people you haven’t seen in a while. When you come together, this united energy creates synergy and wonderful things can happen.
The full moon is on August 11, and you might feel romance is close, but the gates aren’t opening just yet. Rat, a love opportunity is right there, but due to scheduling conflicts or miscommunications, it’s just not happening at the moment. This is a time to be patient and not push. Until you get the signal to go, it’s difficult to move forward.
The twenty-seventh brings the new moon, and you might feel enthusiastic about a new health regimen. Rat, you might jump on the vegan bandwagon, try the paleo diet or finally figure out that whole intermittent fasting thing. Perhaps you have a new bike and you’re getting fresh air and exercise. You could join friends for tai chi in the park or rediscover yoga and marvel at its benefits.
