Virgo- Focusing on the Positive
Okay, Virgo, let’s take a look at your week. Now, before we do, I would love to know what is one area of your life that you want to improve in your new birthday year. This is going to help you dial into your top three [00:02:00] focuses this week, which are one, your self expression, your body, passions, and reflection.
Now, let’s talk about why these are your focuses. All right. So this week definitely has a mixed bag of energy for you as you kick off your birthday month. Now, on one hand, I think you’re going to be excited about the possibilities that you’ve been working on or with. Now, on the other hand, you could be feeling a little bit nostalgic about how it used to be as you juggle a familiar dose.
of self doubt. Now with the sun in your sign, now is a good time to focus on the positive, especially what really makes you happy. Just having a little bit of fun is going to help you find the answers that you’re looking for really deep inside that guiding light. Now with your ruling planet Mercury moving into retrograde and Venus reaching out to Jupiter this week, you may feel a need to take a few steps back and review.
See all revisions as a welcome invitation to ease your current and future. Anxieties, especially when it comes to your passions.
Libra- Taking Action
Hi Libra. Let’s take a look at your week. Now, before we do, I would love to know what are you ready to launch out into the world? This question should really help you kind of dial into your top three focuses this week, which are one reflection to ending to begin and three, your partnerships.
Now let’s talk about why now the sun moving into Virgo will give you the perfect opportunity to move inward and prepare. For your upcoming birthday month. Now, if there’s any overdue endings or preparations needed for our new launch, you’re going to be well supported in taking action on these matters.
Now, some of those actions could be revisions. Mercury and Venus are both asking you to take a step back and see that if in the fast pace of the summer you possibly overlook something important. Now, these revisions may come from you or from others. It’s important not to take any of them personally, but instead as an invitation to level up, lean into the future that you want Libra.
This focus will help you empower [00:04:00] your destiny and your clarity. I do hope you have a great week. I look forward to seeing you next time.
Scorpio- Dialing into Details
Hey, Scorpio, let’s take a look at your week. Now, before we do, I would love to know. How social are you feeling right now on a scale of one to 10, this should help you dial into your top three focuses this week, which are one, your social circles to your health and your wealth.
And three, your dreams. Now let’s talk about why now in the coming weeks, you may notice a strong focus on your social networks, one to one connections and your local vibes. Walking back statements are taking a second look at a connection you have is very possible, but also well supported with all the current energy that we have.
Avoiding any topics or hoping that it’s going to work itself out will only set your future self up for a setback. Dialing into the details of the moment is the path to the success that you want. And once you do that, you may find a brand new path that is just a [00:05:00] little bit outside of your familiar comfort zone, but it can easily bring a lot more prosperity and excitement into your daily flow and your health and wealth.
If you trust it, if you lean into. The uncomfortable feeling of growth. Notice how your decisions make you feel in your mind, your body, and your heart. This will let you know if you are on or off target and help you speak from your heart about the changes that you need to make. I do hope you have a great week.
I look forward to seeing you next time.
Sagittarius- Asking for Resources
Hey Sagittarius, let’s take a look at your week. Now, before we do, I would love to know, are you ready for the spotlight? This question should help you dial into your top three focuses this week, which are one reputation to health and wealth and three, a new direction.
Now let’s talk about why now with the sun moving into Virgo, you may notice that your career reputation is simply in the spotlight. This is a great time to focus on those matters as well as health and wealth. What’s working for [00:06:00] and what is working against you in these areas of your life. Now, once you sit with this question, you may see that you’re in a space that’s really helping you or encouraging you to ask for more resources.
Now, how you will need to balance the responsibility that comes with these resources or gains may not be as clear as you would like in the present moment. But with that being said, as Mercury moves into retrograde, it may be a good idea to look back over any agreements that you have recently made about how you are compensated.
Leaning into the revisions and review will give you both clarity and confidence about the new path opening up for you. Definitely keep that in mind as you work with this week’s energy. I hope you have a good one. Look forward to seeing you next time.

Now you may find this week that you are ready to launch into a brand new direction.
However, you’re sensing some system flaws in your plans. The sun moving into Virgo will highlight new directions, mass publishing, passions, and your personal brand. Trust that even if you do not have all the answers or if you have to revise or double up on your master plan, it will be well worth the effort in the long run.
Now, mercury moving into retrograde could spur more doubts as well as revisions with this energy. It’s always a good idea to dig into the details, to follow that intuition that you have is, is it fear? Or is it excitement? Those are really hard to discern sometimes, which is harder to do when you have a lot of big visions and big projects all happening at the same time.
But ultimately. Everything that you’re doing right now, when it comes to details and revisions is supporting long term success across the legacy that you [00:08:00] have built. There is gold to be found in that creativity that you have reflected in this space about what got you here, and that’ll help you empower this week and the weeks that follow.
I do hope you have a good one. I look forward to seeing you next time.
Aquarius- Fortifying Relationships
Hey Aquarius, let’s take a look at your week. Now before we do, I would love to know, is there something you have been avoiding that needs your attention? I think if you reflect on this question, it’ll help you dial into your focuses this week, which are one, legacy, two, transformation, and three, your partnerships.
Now, let’s talk about why. Now, over the next few weeks, you may find the need to work on more private matters. The sun moving into Virgo highlights this and the legacy that you are a part of and how this may need to adjust in the present day. Now, this story could be deeply connected to your roots, which makes the adjustments all the more challenging.
However, adjustments will also. It’s going to be a big theme in the coming [00:09:00] weeks, no matter which direction or which area of your life that you focus on. When Mercury moves into retrograde, you may find that communication, especially around shared wealth needs a second look. It needs another conversation.
Venus and Jupiter is going to add to this conversation or this need to kind of dig in and see what really is working and not working. It may be that an agreement made earlier in the summer with a partner is the core reason. That a shift needs to happen right now. See the second look as an opportunity to fortify relationships and connections that are meant to last for years to come.
Notice the details and have a lot of patience and you’ll do well. I do hope you have a good one. I look forward to seeing you next time.
