Hummingbird Medicine may be small but it is truly through the small things that such joy, romance and love can be fully experienced. Hummingbird Medicine is asking you to get out and hover in areas where you might meet someone new. If you are already coupled, then buzz around with each other outside of the home. In the words, GO OUT! This is a very playful time for you and Love must be near if Hummingbird Medicine has flown into your reading. This is also about experiencing the sweeter things in life although you must watch your sugar (nectar) intake until August 20, 2017. You may notice that you have sweet tooth where you hadn't before.

Turtle Medicine - [Meaning: Protection, Mother Earth, Grounded] In this final week of the Sun and Mars conjunct in Leo highlighting your 4th house of home and family, Turtle Medicine is reminding you to ground yourself and embed yourself in the area of the home. Taurus's typically express themselves and their power through their home environment. Turtle Medicine who carries its home on its back has meandered on to your path to remind you of the importance of home and family. Turtle Medicine wants you to slow down and appreciate what you have right now. While Life may be moving at a Turtle's pace at home, this is precisely what you need. This is a perfect time for you to make your home a showplace while the royalty of the zodiac (Leo) is still visiting your 4th house. This energy is what has probably been making you feel more lavish and extravagant than usual. You are also being reminded by Turtle Medicine that you don't have to cram everything into your day, everyday. Slow down, ground yourself and become one with Mother Earth and feed yourself some water. While tortoises live on land, turtles live in water. You need to give yourself more water so that you don't become a turtle stuck in the mud and while moving slower, you can still go with the flow.

Cat Medicine – [Curiosity, Independence, Sensuality] In this final week of the Sun and Mars conjunct in Leo highlighting your natural ruling 3rd house of communication, short journey's, mental abilities, how you learn, marketing and sales. Cat medicine walked on to your path to remind you that traveling is your blood. Cats will travel several miles a day and still find a way to make it back home. By nature you need to be in the car going from place to place. Cats are emotionally distant and aloof, so there is no need to stay so 'attached' to home base. When Cat Medicine crosses your path, it is important to watch the body language that it is showing you because this could be a direct reflection of a behavior you need to adopt or in the case of the slapping paw or waving tail, a behavior you need to release. There is still time to hit the road before Mars and the Sun completely separate in this conjunction. Do your best to get a road trip in before August 20, 2017 because this will be the spark that ignites the creativity that you have been needing and wanting.
