Weekly Scope August 19th -August 25th
This week in the Northern Hemisphere we leave the height of summer to transition to fall on Friday, August 23rd.
This marks the start of Virgo season.
Like the change of seasons, we’re transitioning too. If you’ve been feeling stuck by the end of this week expect for something to give way.
Virgo is known to represent witches and magicians. Being the season of the harvest this is a time when lots of vegetation is ripe for potion making. It’s a time when magic can be manifested into tangible practical things on Earth. Virgo is the sign of the maiden, who is an independent woman (let’s get away from the idea of it being if someone has had sex or not). This is someone who sets intentions, a very potent form of magic.
Venus also switches signs this week, moving from passionate Leo to detailed Virgo on Wednesday, August 21st.
Pay attention on the days leading up to Wednesday. People may want to engage in fits of passion, or someone makes a last desperate attempt to be noticed.
Looking to woo someone? Come this weekend if you remember someone’s favorite food, movie, restaurant,or place to star gaze, you will have them wrapped around your finger. Sparks fly on Saturday, August 24th. This is the perfect night for a moonlit walk along the beach.
Also, if you’ve been wanting to know the truth about something, this is the week to ask. People will be unable to hold the truth from you. If someone laughs off a comment they make by saying “I’m only joking,” know that they’re not. This is also the first time since spring that you have some much needed clarity about where you want to go next on your journey.
Sunday, August 25th is a great day for hunkering down to rest in preparation for next week’s New Moon. If you’re feeling antsy, this is a lovely day for decluttering. You’re Mari Kondo, or Martha Stewart and you only want things in your life that spark joy or make you say, “It’s a good thing.” While you declutter let your mind reflect on how this past month has gone, what energized you? What made you tired? This is prime time to decide what you’re not going to do anymore, and then at the end of the upcoming week you can vibrate at the frequency of what you do want to bring more into your life.

Aries Mar 21st – Apr 19th Hello Aries! This week Spirit is guiding you to look within to achieve a higher understanding of yourself. Hold yourself up to a personal mirror and look deep into the closed areas of your mind. This may bring to the surface your deepest fears of failure, abandonment and worthiness. None of us are perfect as we all have areas to improve and downsides. It is how we have allowed them to affect the paths to our goals that define our intentions. By going within our truest possibilities and highest good is also revealed. Look within and then open yourself to the healing power of spiritual energy and know that the work of self-change is progressing in your life. You may have questions for which there are no answers as of yet, or perhaps that will be situations that happen to which you have no knowledge. As hard as it may be, relinquish control and be willing to permit the Universe and Spirit to guide you.
Taurus Apr 20th – May 20th Hello Taurus! This week Spirit wants you to remember that you are part of a bigger plan and that right now you are where you need to be in order to learn what you need to learn. The wisdom of the universe is making itself known, and that you and what is for your highest good is being held in Divine protection. Trust in the universe and in yourself. This week rely on your instincts and intuition when making decisions. When facing any conflict, either new or ongoing, draw upon your inner strength to actively protect your emotional well-being. Protection in times of conflict may also come from an outside source such as a mentor or colleague.
Gemini May 21st – Jun 20th Hello Gemini! This week the flow of energy from the Divine will be strong. Spirit is letting you know that if you are in need of assistance, help is on the way. If you are not in need, you are being guided to help those who are. Make sure you have established a good self-care routine before giving to others though. You are being guided to find harmony in all areas of your life. You can expect your partnerships, whether in business, friendship, or romance to be strong and progressing. There are indications that if you are not in a romantic partnership, that one will develop. If you are currently in one, this relationship is likely to strengthen. You can expect a gift headed your way; this may be spiritual or material in nature. Reciprocity is part of the flow of energy you are in, so be sure to keep the balance. If someone does for you or presents you with a gift of some kind, you are being guided to give back to them in some manner.
Cancer Jun 21st – Jul 22nd Hello Cancer! In general, this week will bring about an energy of happiness, prosperity, and strength. This could be a time that you should rest and enjoy the fruits of your labor, as you have reached certain goals and have accomplished what you were trying to achieve. The Divine is guiding you to enjoy your good fortune by sharing it with others. You have gained abundance through your efforts and may now experience a well-deserved boost in self-esteem and self-value. This renewed self-confidence will help you overcome future opposition. Spirit advises you to stick with whatever plan you have underway, and conserve and hold on to what you have. Further success is to come.
Leo Jul 23rd – Aug 22nd Hello Leo! This week Spirit is guiding you to face the challenges in your life and not to fear them. Strengthen your determination and face your challenges with bravery and the understanding that they are just stepping stones along your path leading to your goals. You have it within yourself to turn adversity into opportunity. The Divine is indicating that change is definitely necessary. Initially this change may appear destructive, however its aftermath will be advantageous and productive. Look at this period of change and challenge as a way of drawing your attention to a recurrent pattern in your life that needs to be addressed in order for you to have positive progress in life.
Virgo Aug 23rd- Sep 22nd Hello Virgo! This week the Divine is letting you know that you are entering a time of progress and growth. This is the time to stoke the fires of your passion so that you keep moving forward toward your goals. You have the support that you need to make swift progress, you just need to ask. Stay humble as you find success with your goals, and remember to stay loyal and supportive to those around you, as they were to you. This is also a good time to form new partnerships, whether in business or personal life. If you are already in a partnership or relationship, know that it is solid and sound.
Libra Sep 23rd – Oct 22nd Hello Libra! This week the Divine is telling you that you will find freedom and independence through releasing ideas or even yourself from those things that keep you stuck. If you are living in a closed world, Spirit is guiding you to open up more. Honor your roots and family, but do not get too tied to family or the past. In times of stress it is ok, turn to the family traditions that have become hallowed and which you find comforting. Consider exploring opportunities to become part of a group of like-minded individuals that make you feel safe and useful. This could help you avoid getting too dependent on family or stuck in the past.
Scorpio Oct 23rd – Nov 21st Hello Scorpio! This week you are likely to experience some temporary delays and frustrations with situations with which you are involved. This time of standstill or limbo allows you time for thought and a review of your situation. A sense of detachment will come about, which gives you the power to focus your thoughts before moving forward onto a new stage. Reflection and withdrawal allow a time of rest and recuperation. Spirit is guiding you to shed outdated ideas so that you can unfreeze yourself from past patterns of behavior.
Sagittarius Nov 22nd – Dec 21st Hello Sagittarius! This week the Divine wants you to know that you have the inner power to face any challenge, and you have the authority to claim your destiny and control your life. Spirit is guiding you to fear nothing and let no other person distract you from your path and goals. Be prepared to make some sacrifices in order to make progress in life. While the sacrifices may be painful, take this a time from which to learn. Know that the things you may be forced to endure will pave the way for good things in the future.
Capricorn Dec. 22nd - Jan 19th Hello Capricorn! This week the Divine is reminding you that you have choice in everything. No one can upset you, you can only choose to be upset. No one can exert power over you unless you choose to let them. Spirit wants you to claim your right to choice. Do not allow others to compromise your beliefs or prevent you from doing what you need to do. There may be a positive force of change coming revealing something that has been hidden or kept secret. You may be experiencing a sense of heightened psychic ability at this time. Know that this is your higher-self opening up to you and that you are safe, but seek guidance if you become overwhelmed. Perhaps consider taking a class, finding a mentor, or reading books related to psychic awareness.
Aquarius Jan 20th – Feb 18th Hello Aquarius! This week the Divine is guiding you to practice patience and to be flexible. Your world may be feeling as if it is moving slowly or is stagnant at this time. Trust that events and changes will come at their proper time and in the correct way. So be patient and go with the flow, taking note of opportunities for new beginnings. Soon there will be movement in your affairs, and what you put out in the universe will begin to come back to you. The end of a long project or situation you have had to deal with is coming ushering in the feeling of relief. Take some time to enjoy the rewards that will come with its completion.
Pisces Feb 19th – Mar 20th Hello Pisces! This week pay attention to the opportunities of development and growth that come your way. The Divine is letting you know that some challenges might not be easy, but you are capable of growing through them and your prosperity, career goals and success can be achieved. It may be time to take a look at some project or idea you have abandoned, because with focused attention and directed energy you may find success. Spirit also wants you to ask yourself if are you doing whatever is good for your health. Maybe some specific habit change is really needed to experience health improvements in your life. Habit changes usually aren’t easy, but often, that’s the only challenge we have to accept to see our health returning and thriving.
