If you want to make changes in your life, then now is the time for you to be able to carry them out. However, you should be aware that you are likely to encounter significant opposition to what you want to do. Whilst you can trample over those that oppose you, you may find that you need those same people at a later date and they are not likely to be compliant.
Love and Romance
You are likely to be feeling quite restless and want to have a break from your daily routine. You will be looking for excitement and anything that is out of the norm that can offer you something different. If you have been feeling that your relationship is restrictive then you may decide that today is the day when you want to have more freedom and relieve yourself of the burden.
Prosperity & Opportunity
It’s a good time to think about future plans as you may well find life leaves little room for planning.

Gemstone for August – Peridot
The ancient Romans wore peridot rings in battles as it symbolized strength and provided protection against the enemies.
Conversely, the ancient Egyptian priests ground the stone into a powder before mixing it with potent drinks to be used in ceremonies as they believed that drinking this concoction would bring them closer to nature. Peridot is regarded as a powerful detoxifying agent. The stone is also thought to improve blood circulation, enhance metabolism, strengthen the immune system and boost digestion. It also has the ability to eliminate stress and dispel apathy and exhaustion.
In modern times, wearing peridot jewelry can help increase financial solidity and contentment in your life. The stone is widely associated with prosperity, loyalty, love, honesty, faithfulness, and optimism. The notion that it reduces stress and eliminates negative thinking, can help enhance harmony, particularly in marriages and other human relationships. Essentially, experts in gemstone significance suggest that the stone can prevent jealousy and anger in relationships.
Furthermore, peridot can also help improve mental health and boost spiritual wellness. It is associated with the heart chakra, also green, and wearing it close to the heart is said to cleanse it of negative emotions, leaving the wearer feeling light, blissful and ready to love.
