Weekly Astrology Forecast: August 15 – 21, 2022

Do you feel prepared to clear the way for new energy and opportunities while embracing heightened passion for creativity, conversations, and crafts? Then there are two transits flowing your way this week that will leave you excited and ready for new beginnings!

On August 19th, the Last Quarter Moon lands in the steady sign of Taurus, urging you to prepare yourself for the upcoming New Moon and the resulting new lunar cycle. Ruled by beauty-loving Venus, this particular Last Quarter Moon places a focus on your immediate surroundings, asking you to cleanse your sacred space.

Clearing negativity from your home will help you make room for new, positive energies, and it will also help you feel more prepared than ever for the next lunar cycle. Try placing selenite and clear quartz in the areas that need the most cleansing.

Next up, on August 20th, Mars begins an unusually long journey in the sign of Gemini, where—due to a retrograde period—it will remain until March 25th of 2023!

Mars in Gemini is a period of heightened passion in all intellectual areas: your imagination, your cerebral connections with others, and even your favorite hobbies.

Take advantage of this energy by embracing passionate ideas and paying special attention to any flashes of insight you experience now. You may have a brilliant idea or two that you won’t want to pass up or miss out on!
