The Shift Doctors (Tracy Latz, M.D. & Marion Ross, Ph.D.) are thrilled once again to have our good friend and guest blogger Steve Nelson return to share his wisdom. Steve is an astrologer who follows a Jungian mythological tradition. He was raised by a part Cherokee shaman Aunt Maude who learned much of her lore from Molly Runningwolf, the mother of Amanita Sequoyah, the last Cherokee medicine man officially recognized by the Eastern Tribe. Steve’s Indian name is Steven Red Wolf, his lineage is of the wolf clan, one of the 7 tribal groups of the Cherokee. Steve follows many of the Cherokee traditions especially as these relate to celebrations, the use of ritual fire and star lore. For more information about Steve Nelson see www.GaiaAstrology.com
August begins with Leo Sun in fortunate trine with Uranus and Athena allied in Aries bringing exciting new technological (and magical!) breakthroughs that will (with Uranus square Pluto) totally transform the global status quo.
This month we take the initiative and bring forward those bold new projects; it’s time to put our best foot forward and make that proposal we’ve had in mind. We are given opportunity to come onto the world stage now, each in our own way. Here we will find we’re part of an integral being, a planetary consciousness many call Gaia. This Sun in Leo brings us into a new state of being where we discover who we are and what we’re here to do. The Sun, Moon and other cosmic forces come together this month to help us realize our life dreams.

Focusing our spirit in this magical time supported by the dance of the planets and stars we will come to realize just what we are here to do.
