Hello beautiful souls and welcome to your astrology forecast for the week of August 24 - August 30!

Last week had us preparing for manifesting and magic. The week starts out with the urge to move forward with a square between Mars (our passion) and Saturn (structures and time). This feeling of needing to act will continue into Tuesday with the first quarter Moon, which often has us feeling like we must decide to take action.

There’s exciting energy in the air this week as you are focused with the Sun in Virgo, and creative with the waxing Moon. You’re making headway on your goals, and have the energy to sustain your plan. You are ready to make steady progress towards what you’re working to manifest.

Use this Week to Manifest with the Moon

If you want to take advantage of the tail end of August, here’s the most important thing to note about this week’s astrology overview: When you use the building energy of the Moon, it will help you manifest.

This week, we have that building energy.

Write your goal down and visualize yourself having achieved it before you even get out of bed each day this week. Build excitement during this visualization. This will propel you towards actions and thoughts that will help you manifest what you need to make some real magic this week.

Love is Heightened

We still have Venus, the planet of love, moving through the emotional sign of Cancer (until September 6) making everyone crave some intimacy and love.

Give yourself a chance to actually have it by carving out some time for you and someone that gives you butterflies. Mercury is not retrograde, allowing at least some aspects of our lives to bloom!

It’s a good time to put effort into manifesting love, and you might just find some magic appear around the Full Moon on Wednesday, September 2. Just don’t let Sunday’s cosmic shakeup as Venus opposes Pluto, kill your spirits. Remember, it’s temporary to feel intense emotions. Try not to push something you want away just because you’re feeling emotional pressure.

What else can you expect this week from the stars?

People are still going through a categorically major shift personally and collectively as we have just started a new galactic year (which is a 250 million year cycle of our galaxy). We also have lingering retrograde energy with Uranus, Chiron, Pluto, Neptune, Jupiter, and Saturn.

It’s important to be patient with yourself.

If you feel energetic, know that you may feel different the next day, and just take it as it comes. Accept that the Universe is helping you to become the beautiful being your soul is destined to be! Be patient with your friends as they too are going through this energetic upgrade, and need time to integrate and process the changes.

Daily Astrology Snapshots for August 24 - August 30, 2020

Monday, August 24

Sun: Virgo - The theme when the Sun is in Virgo is to fix things. Notice how your mind is trying to perfect every aspect of life from improving your health, the upkeep of your home, and the quality of your relationships.

Moon: Scorpio - We are thinking a bit more mischievously under this influence and would like some genuine connection with others. We are looking to spice things up or discover a new part of ourselves that wants to be unearthed.

Transit: Mars in Aries (square) Saturn in Capricorn. We may suddenly be hyper-aware of the things that are standing between where we are and where we want to be. Instead of impulsively trying to blow them up, try to find creative and calm approaches that won’t rock the boat too much.

You’ve been through enough upheaval this year!

Tuesday, August 25
