Hope is returning. As it does, the universe asks you to focus on what you desire to attract into your life. Pay attention to your thoughts and feelings, which you may hold like a secret close to your heart, because it's not always the rituals you do that are responsible for your manifestations but, instead, what you radiate into the universe that is.  

Friday, August 25, the Sagittarius Moon aligns peacefully with Venus retrograde in Leo. Venus is now a morning star as it prepares to station direct in just a week, signifying a more hopeful period and the inner feeling that whatever challenges you've been moving through are now behind you.  


The Sagittarius Moon prepares for the future as you are asked to review your most recent New Moon intentions and reflect on what you can release or even recommit to more deeply to make the most of this lunar cycle.  

Everything is now pointing to a joyful ease returning, one that promises to give you time and space to do what is necessary to align your external life with all the recent growth you've been through. But today, Friday, August 25, the universe is trying to remind you how much your energy is responsible for what you attract in this life.  



As the Moon and Venus retrograde unite, they ask you to step into the flow of divine energies, embrace optimism and hope, and recognize that your most significant assets in life are those who surround you. Whether they can help you manifest your long-term goals or not, they offer an energy of support, understanding, and sometimes simply the place of acceptance. And because of this, you feel energized to continue doing your work to align more with your soul's purpose.  


When manifesting, the law of attraction always works behind the scenes, as whatever energy you send out, you also receive back. This helps you understand how subconscious fears or self-doubt can affect what you experience in life. As much as you say you want something, you may need to move through some self-healing to believe your desire is already coming genuinely.  

Learn to pivot your thoughts, like how you'd change directions if you were out for a walk and wanted to take a new path. Recognize when your mind is working against what you desire and use your affirmation to re-center your energy and help heal any doubts or fears. This isn't about being perfect, but only being mindful of radiating what you genuinely desire to attract.  

For your manifestation rituals today, focus on the energy of Venus, now return to the light, and think of yourself and your life the same way. Rituals can be done at any time, and you can tap into the courage of the zodiac sign of Leo by incorporating herbal elements that represent this fire sign, such as hibiscus, rosehips, rosemary, or green tea. The same is true for essential oils like frankincense, geranium, and cypress, or even the crystals that represent Leo, carnelian, pyrite, or citrine, which can help you to harness the energy of the day and allow you to manifest with great passion.
