The sun, now in Leo, harmonizes with rational Saturn that is still in Sagittarius on Monday, August 1st. This can be a fruitful time when perseverance and firmness are rewarded. Although the workload may feel heavy or tedious, steadfast efforts can win appreciation and recognition. 

The new moon in Leo Tuesday, August 2nd helps to instill confidence for those Leos whose birthday is near this date. The other two fire signs, Sagittarius and Aries, also find pleasure and fun now.

On August 3rd, the sun and nebulous Neptune in Pisces tangle and it will be important to keep commitments. Be discreet in all matters and be sure to establish limitations or healthy boundaries so that others don’t take advantage. Disorganization may be the tenor of everyday life. This is an excellent day for creativity and some can enjoy outdoor activities.

Breathwork is not so much How-To Breathe, but more so a practice of how to un-do our unconscious breath patterns that aren’t supporting our highest, healthiest selves.

We started our sweet journey into honey by hosting 20 bee hives in the lush fields next to Miraval Spa. You will find it everywhere at Miraval, throughout our delicious culinary menus, incorporated into luxurious treatments in our state-of-the art spa, and packaged for guests in our gift shop as a memento of their stay. Watch for new products too, as we experiment with new beverages, cosmetic products made from the wax and more uses from even the pollen. The beneficial uses for the human body and the possibilities are limitless!

The beauty of Miraval Honey is that it will change in flavor, color and texture as it captures the nuances of different seasons in the Sonoran Desert. The honey will crystallize, as almost all raw honey does over time, but let it serve as a symbol of its care, intention and character.
