Send out what you hope to receive back: Friday, August 18, 2023, brings an intense wave of Virgo energy as the Moon within this zodiac sign aligns with Mars and Mercury, helping you use your emotional healing to create new and fulfilling manifestations. The Moon rules your inner self, which comprises your feelings and truth, while Mercury offers the necessary communication to enable Mars to create action.


Together, the planetary energy today can help you create a solid and stable foundation to build your dreams.  

This is a week of change and positive development as Venus recently began its new cycle and the New Moon occurred, both in Leo. You have been reminded about what is most important to you, and while you'd thought you could accept things or deal with any challenging realities, you're now feeling empowered to step into a phase of transformation.



As you are feeling the urge to take on whatever has felt challenging in your life, the Virgo energy today will help bring healing energy, as well as the logical actions to help find and create a sense of stability and inner safety so you can feel confident in manifesting what you genuinely desire. The more honest you are about what you want, the more power your manifestations will carry. Virgo asks for you to believe in your intention so sincerely. Failure is not even an option — but it also reminds you to ensure you are sending out what you hope to receive back.
