Are you ready for a week to recharge, revamp, and regain your energy and strength? Then you’re in luck because the stars are bringing some pleasant, balanced, and refreshing energy your way!

While there are no major transits this week, the more minor transits we’ll be experiencing are cheerful and charming, allowing you to gather your strength and rest up for bigger and better future projects!

We start on August 23rd, when Venus, currently in Libra, is in a positive angle with Saturn, currently in Aquarius. This is a transit that may signal new friendships and connections, meaning that it’s important that you keep an eye out for new social opportunities. You might meet someone who can change your life!

On August 26th, Mercury – in Virgo – is trine Pluto – in Capricorn. Negotiations run more smoothly during this transit, making it easier for you to get your point across.

And on August 29th, the Taurus Moon is in a harmonious position to Mercury, still in Virgo. This is a transit that will open your eyes and give clarity to certain situations, making it easier to make decisions and follow through with them.

While none of these are major planetary transits, they will provide the foundation for a week of healing and clarity.

August 23 – August 29 is a Week to Consider Your Options

With new opportunities for friendship and clarity of both communication and ideas, this is a fantastic week to explore your internal world and consider your options. You may find yourself experiencing stronger opinions than usual this week, and it’s time to pay attention to what your heart and mind are telling you.

This week, try to determine what you truly desire. This astrologically-light week gives you the chance to really think about what you want out of life – even if those desires have recently changed.

If you don’t know what you want, a personalized astrological reading can help you understand what lights your fire and sparks your creativity.
