We are still in Leo season until Aug. 23. For the last few weeks of summer, we will feel the joy and passion of the Leos before moving into the Virgo season, which will be filled with organization and efficiency.

This will be perfect for when the SAIT school year starts back up.

As for the moon this week, it will be in Sagittarius and move into Capricorn on Tuesday night. We also have a full moon this week!

Full Moon ahead

Full moons are the best time to manifest what you want to let go of. An effective way to do this is to write a letter to the universe and say what you’re thankful to no longer have in your life. For example, “I am grateful to let go of my insecurities.”

The full moon’s power helps bring these manifestations to reality, as you’re taking a step in the right direction when you are aware of what needs to be changed. The full moon will be on Friday, Aug. 12.

Aug. 8 is also an important day in astrology! This is the day that the Lion’s Gate Portal is strongest.

From July 28 to Aug. 12, the Lion’s Gate is open, and its energy is known for making manifestations come true. This is different from usual moon manifesting. The Lion’s Gate typically manifests something you want by next year when the portal opens up again.

The best way to utilize this is to write down exactly what you want in your life by next year, and then try not to stress about it too much; the universe will send it to you over time.

The crystal of the week is clear quartz! This crystal is great for clarity and harmony, and it can also help bring you closer to the spiritual side.

This will be helpful for the week as the Lion’s Gate Portal begins to close, as we can use it to help bring our manifestations to life! It will also bring out more of that Leo energy for the remaining weeks of summer.
