How does a week of passion, spontaneous romantic vibrations, and enthusiastic, active energy sound to you? The stars are gifting us with dynamic, vibrant energy that will help you feel sexy, confident, and ready to achieve your goals!

There are two transits that stand out this week, starting with a fiery shift on May 2nd as Venus - the planet of love and relationships - moves into spicy Aries. This transit urges you to act on your impulses and go after what you want romantically and within your platonic relationships.

You won’t be afraid to share your feelings with others during this period, but be careful to consider your words and infuse them with compassion.

Aries brings the heat to your interactions with others and may cause impulsive or insensitive communication. Work with rose quartz and balance the Heart chakra to make the most of this transit.

We feel even more warmth and enthusiasm on May 8th, when the First Quarter Moon occurs in the sign of Leo. This lunar phase encourages action and intensity, inspiring you to go after your goals and make things happen for yourself.

It’s an excellent time to really put yourself out there and let your personality shine.

During this First Quarter Moon, let go of the need for approval from others, embrace your individuality, and let the glow of Leo amplify your confidence and willingness to share your unique vision with the world.

May 2nd – 8th is a Week to Be Romantic, Sensual, & Confident

Venus in Aries will spice up our lives in a way that brings more excitement and intimacy into romantic relationships. If you’re single, it’s a fantastic time to meet someone new - your confidence is on fire now, especially if you practice positive affirmations.

The First Quarter Moon in Leo boosts that self-confidence even further, urging you to let the world see your brilliant ideas and creative talents.

Are you ready to let the warmth of these transits light you up this week? It’s time to embrace your unique celestial being and let your light shine bright!

If you’re not sure how to start manifesting, a personalized astrological reading can help you learn how to attract your dream life, based on your birth chart.
