August 4 people feel most fulfilled when representing a group of which they are proud, be it familial, regional, racial, political, economic or social. If this is your birthday, or if you resonate with today’s energy, then your roots are extremely important to you and you rarely let yourself or anyone else forget where they come from.
This, those born on August 4 are not satisfied when acting purely for personal gain, but like to make their mark as contributors to a larger effort. This is not to say that they do not like working or being alone. Long periods of solitude may be necessary for them to develop their projects or chart a course of action, but such work invariably functions within a wider social framework.
Number Four = Sweet Soulfulness
It is time to keep moving forward as you strive to achieve your hopes and dreams - because despite your current challenges, success is well within your reach. You are never given more than you can handle, and you have the strength and ability to make it through... so face your challenges head-on with determination, courage, and faith. With perseverance and faith you can make your dreams come true.
Today, make yourself a cup of hot chocolate and sip it slowly. Allow the warmth and sweetness to nourish your body and soul. What is called for now is to step back and take your focus off of your life and your troubles. You'll be surprised by how things sort themselves out once you've replenished your energy by means of a much needed rest and time-out. What does this nourishment mean to you? How can you nourish and nurture yourself more?
Write It Down and Speak It Into Existence
Get some paper and a pen, put your feet up and allow your creativity to flow. Write down ten nourishing things you can do for yourself in the next week, and do them. Say, "Divine Intelligence, please awaken the sweetness and soulfulness inside me so I can truly nourish and love myself."

August 4 and The Emperor
The Emperor energy is of one who rules over concrete and worldly things through wisdom, the primary source of this masculine power. The emperor is stable and wise; the force of his authority cannot be questioned. The positive associations of this card are strong willpower and steadfast energy.
The Emperor and The Bible
1 Peter 2:13-17 Be subject for the Lord's sake to every human institution, whether it be to the emperor as supreme, or to governors as sent by him to punish those who do evil and to praise those who do good. For this is the will of God, that by doing good you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish people. Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God. Honor everyone. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the emperor.
The Hemlock Tree embodies the energies of the Emperor A strong foundation and a safe environment build a solid future. Hemlock is ideal for framing houses, because it is a soft wood that toughens with age. Trust your boundaries. They may feel pliable at first, but they will strengthen over time. By creating the conditions for other plants to thrive, hemlock is an important part of a healthy ecosystem. Build a reliable scaffolding on which your sacred work can grow. Step into leadership with confidence.

Core of Creation – The Sacral Chakra Representing Water Signs Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
Swim Into Passion
Cancer is primarily influenced by the Sacral Chakra. The Sacral Chakra invites you to revel in the present moment and feel deeply into your senses. The sensuality of being alive, the breeze on your skin, the scent of damp earth, the feeling of fitting perfectly into the temple you call your body. This chakra is about diving into the depths of a moment, where all your faculties are available for divine creation. Your entire paint kit is present, as no part is left in the past or caught in the future. All of who you are united in a point of deep experience. This is the ecstatic moment of conception for a project or new life. Let yourself drop into passion, intimacy and loving connection with whatever you are birthing into the world and with whomever you have chosen to co-create with.

August 4 and Intuition Activation
Choose an affirmation and repeat it several times daily, or during meditation.
- I trust that my intuition knows what is best for me.
- My intuition guides me through all of life’s challenges.
- I am an intuitive and powerful being and life is on my side.
TIMES THAT MY INTUITION HAS HELPED ME IN MY LIFE
List examples of times that your intuition served you well. For example, went a different route to work and avoided an accident, made a decision based on instinct that turned out well, took a leap of faith.
THREE TIPS TO DEVELOP YOUR INTUITION
- Meditate daily and when you are completely relaxed, allow any thoughts or feelings to come to you, or ask a question and let an answer form.
- Notice your immediate thought or feeling when faced with a question or situation. Our first response is usually accurate, before the memory of our past experiences and limiting beliefs can get in the way.
- If you have a specific question about something in your life, ask the question and see what answers come to you as tend to your day.
