Have you been waiting for the perfect opportunity to ask the Universe for your deepest desires? Then you need to pay attention to your thoughts and actions this week because the magnetic energy heading your way is nothing to be missed.

While we experience only one major transit this week, we’re graced with other celestial energies that shine on our spirits like a sprinkle of magic dust.

On August 4th, the Gemini Moon is in harmony with Jupiter – the planet of expansion, benevolence, and fortune – in the sign of Aquarius. Both Gemini and Aquarius are Air signs, making this a day filled with intellectual thought and new ideas.

Sharing those ideas might even bring new opportunities, so don’t hold them back!

The Moon in Cancer is in a pleasant dance with spontaneous Uranus on August 5th, encouraging exciting, stimulating events or interactions with others. Whether you go out of your way to discover these experiences or do nothing at all, you may find yourself amidst new opportunities and chance meetings.

A New Moon in Leo on August 8th brings even more electric, exciting energy to round off the week.

The New Moon is a time of new beginnings, a time to consider what it is that you want to bring into your life through the Law of Attraction. And with that fiery energy of Leo influencing this lunar cycle, you’ll feel bolder and more courageous than ever, giving you the guts to ask the Universe for what you really desire.

With pleasant lunar transits and an enthusiastic New Moon to look forward to this week, you may find yourself moving closer towards your goals than ever before.

August 2 – August 8 is a Week to Focus on Ideas, Interactions, & Desires

The Moon is in charge this week, and it’s bringing brilliant ideas, exciting encounters, and the perfect opportunity to manifest your deepest desires. Follow your intuition to let these ideas take hold and work at full force for the best results ever.

This week, you’re asked to focus on what you want and look for the best ways to bring those desires into your life. Don’t let this inspiring energy pass you by: Listen to your intuition, examine your ideas, and bring that dream life into focus!

If you’re not feeling connected to your goals or the details of your life, a personalized astrological reading can help you streamline your focus.
