Do you seek mental clarity, objectivity, and the ability to go deep within and use your spiritual guidance to help you make moves towards your ultimate path? Then there are two exciting transits to prepare yourself for this week!

On August 4th, Mercury—the planet of communication, information, the mind, and even short-distance travel—is moving into one of the signs over which it rules - sensible, grounded Virgo.

While Mercury was in Leo, our conversations may have been spicier, more passionate, and more creative. But with Mercury in Virgo, we have time to pay attention to details, focus, organize, and communicate clearly and with confidence.

Tending to paperwork, cleansing your home or office, making plans for future goals, mentally-challenging activities, and communicating with like-minded people are beneficial, potentially life-changing activities during this time!

This swift and speedy planet will be in Virgo until August 25th, when it moves into balanced Libra, giving you about three weeks to take advantage of motivating, Earthy energy!

And if that weren’t reason enough to get excited, we experience the First Quarter Moon in the mysterious sign of Scorpio—ruled by the planet of power, transformation, and rebirth, Pluto.

This lunar transit is a time to take initial action towards your goals, and Scorpio’s energy urges you to dig deep within your internal, hidden worlds to determine whether your path still aligns with your spirit and beliefs.

Tarot readings are an excellent way to receive insight and answers about what actions need to be taken now. Start with activities that encourage self-exploration to make the most of this First Quarter Moon.

August 1 - 7 is a Week to Focus, Find Clarity, & Explore Your Internal World

Mercury in Virgo gives you a mental boost accompanied by increased focus, deeper conversations, and practical-yet-creative ideas that will help you reach your goals. The First Quarter Moon in Scorpio, however, encourages you to go deep, look within, and ensure that your desires align with what you believe in and who you want to be right now.

What will you do to take advantage of this increased mental activity and desire to take action towards your goals? No matter your future goals and plans, it’s a great time to explore your internal reality and learn more about who you are and what you truly want in this life.
