Nicols' weekly here. She writes like she knows you.
August 24th to August 31st

are in the same sign. This is an auspicious time! Every New Moon occurs
in a different part of our chart, which means we have an opportunity for
different resolutions. Of course, we make resolutions and don't keep
them because we're all frail mortals. But "Without a wish to avoid
faults, one cannot keep from them." (I've had that on my fridge for
