This month is dominated by the element AIR
There is still plenty of fire energy around, especially at the beginning of August, but slowly the creative, fun-loving air energy spreads and takes over by mid-August. This month is a great time for visiting family and friends and to catch up with people you have not seen in a while.
It is also a useful time for anything creative. A project started during August can bear fruit much later down the line, but it is important to plant the seed this month.

If you compare the seasonal cycle with the moon cycle you can see the similarities.
New Moon – Winter (beginning and end, a time for reflection and reset)
Waxing Moon – Spring (new energy, discoveries, plans, new routines)
Full Moon – Summer (enjoy, celebrate, present)
Waning Moon – Autumn (put plans into action, consolidate, reap the reward)
The yearly circle is the aspect we are all familiar with, the lunar component less so. But together they work much better, a concept that many early cultures embraced. Please read How the Babylonians and Sumerians created the Lunisolar Calendar

Here are a few examples of symbols you find on the LWTM Holistic Lifestyle Calendar
Waxing Moon: The time for creating new projects
Nourishing and Anti-ageing skincare: Skin sheds roughly in the same time span as the lunar cycle. It is important to have a basic daily routine and add varying procedures. When you see this symbol on the LWTM Lifestyle Calendar, make sure you add a nourishing/anti-aging face masks or serum to your routine. Please check out the article Biodynamic Skincare for more information.
Repotting of house and patio plants: Potted houseplants outgrow their pots on a regular basis and need repotting. Whenever you see this symbol is a great day for this activity. Ideally use soil for your new pot from your compost heap. Only choose a plant pot that is one or maximum two sizes up on the current container. Gradually you can grow this plant into different pot sizes, reusing the outgrown pots for other smaller plants.
Full Moon: connect with others and party. In busines it is time to represent, hold talks or launch a product.
Celebrations & Wedding: Historically this time always connected to social events and celebrations. Most likely because the Full Moon provided the much needed light during the noctornal sky. Before reliable calendars were used, it was easy to recognise when to meet up. We tend to be more active and restless during this time, so might as well celebrate the night away.
Waning Moon: work hard and turn your dreams into reality.
The treaded To-do List: We all have them, but it if it is tacked on a regular basis, it is much to keep on top of your life. This symbol is a quick reminder to take your list out and clear it. You can find a print-out version in the Freebies section.
Detox and Cleanse your body and mind: Once in a while our body and mind needs a good clear out and reset. The later stages of the Waning Moon are ideal to leave the outside world behind and rest. This is the time to clean up your digestion and schedule a Liquid Fast Day. These days are vital to clear up your digestion and help to keep your body and mind healthy.
New Moon: Similar to the later stages of the Waning Moon a time to declutter, detox and restart the cycle by filling in your LWTM LifeGoalPlanner.
Lifegoal Planning: You can’t start a journey without a destination. Spend some time to get crystal clear what you are here for and what you want to do with your precious life.
