August Monthly horoscope 2009 for Leo and Virgo (22 July – 22 September) by Michele Burke


Leo’s at this time you are you are at your most charming. You are a smooth talker. Your compliments will flow freely. All month you will feel like you are on top of the world and everyone will see it in your glow. Romance will be found in the least expected place. So be on the lookout for love.


Virgo’s your criticizing nature may become an issue in the month of August. Your cool insight will lead you to economic gain. Even though you generally are bashful when it comes to love, a new romance will be awaiting you later in the month but be careful not to let your emotions carry you away, stick it out and you will be rewarded.

Self Blessing

By Rev. Bella Mahri

Blessed be my mind
that I may know you.

Blessed be my ears
that I may always hear your music.

Blessed be my eyes
that I may see your beauty.

Blessed be my nose
that I may smell your essence.

Blessed be my lips and tongue
that I may speak of your ways.

Blessed be my heart
that I may be faithful in your works.

Blessed be my loins,
that I may create life as you brought forth the universe.

Blessed be my hips and knees,
that bend to help a being of nature.

Blessed be my feet,
that I may ever walk in your ways.

Bless me, Mother Goddess,
now and forevermore.
Blessed Be!
