Numerology/Astrology for 8/22/15
August 22nd is the number 20. The number 2 reflects the potential negativity of this day. It is wise to remember that the number 2 can be a very mental day and one where the problems seem to shine brighter than the positive situations. Knowing that try to flip this day on its head and focus your brain in the directions of what is right in the world. It is always easier to find fault, blame, and then point the finger towards others than it is to stop and try to see what is good and positive about this situation rather than what is challenging to you. With Mars involved in minor but challenging aspects today, there can be the need to either tone your actions down or adjust your expectations. Mars quincunx Neptune can point to vague discontent or lack of direction. The tendency to be careless is also strong now. Poor judgment or laziness can prevent you from realizing your plans. Alternatively, there can be a sense that your plans are running counter to your dreams or ideals, and you can be in the position to make adjustments. Later today, a semi-square between Mercury and Mars comes into orb, and while you can be quick-witted, you might jump to conclusions or into arguments too quickly. You may be working under stressful or hectic conditions, as you feel pressure to get things done quickly. You may be a bit snappy or irritable today and you may feel so rushed that you interrupt others rather than listen. Needless to say, conflicts of interest are possible. Consciously slow yourself down. If you find the proper focus you just might also be able to use this energy constructively. This afternoon, a First Quarter Moon occurs when the Sun in late Leo forms a square with the Scorpio Moon. There is a crisis theme surrounding any quarter Moon phase, as you will feel compelled to take action. Just never forget that your actions affect those close to you, perhaps through trial and error. Whatever project or initiative you begin around the New Moon is now feeling some movement, and it may also face its first obstacles. The Moon leaves Scorpio at 4:42 PM EDT, when it enters Sagittarius.
Take criticism, smash it into dust. Add color and use it to paint breathtaking images of unicorns frolicking through endless fields of greatness.

Do what you can today to just keep moving along your chosen path. You will feel the density in which you find yourself to be like mud that you are attempting to slog yourself through. But progress is sometimes measured in inches rather than yards. You test yourself and your willingness to keep on going by never giving up on your dream. Because if you would give up on your own dream, why would anyone believe in you? You have to prove it to yourself before others are willing to dive in and help.
