It’s the last full week of Leo season, so now is the time to soak in the rest of that Leo energy and use it to finish off the summer.

Virgo season starts on August 23 but we might feel the energy begin to start shifting this weekend. This season is going to be great for organization and more grounding energy, which will be perfect for school starting back up!

The Moon is starting in Aries this week and moves into Taurus on Wednesday night. It will move into Gemini on Saturday night.

Aries Moon may make us feel a little restless and short-tempered; but on the bright side, it will help us be more direct and honest.

The Moon in Taurus will make us feel more relaxed and stable, but may also make us feel a little more lazy. When the Moon moves into Gemini we may feel more energetic, but may make us easily sidetracked.

Two retrogrades, two planets

There’s still two retrogrades going on! Currently, both Jupiter and Saturn are in retrograde. Jupiter began its retrograde on July 28 and will go direct on Nov. 23.

This time is known for revealing the truth and getting us to look directly at our issues to find ways to fix them. Since this happens over the course of four months, it doesn’t feel as intense and happens more gradually.

Saturn retrograde began on June 4 and will go direct on Oct. 23. This retrograde is helpful for figuring out what we truly want and what our goals are.

Now is a great time to establish boundaries and align yourself with who you want to be once Saturn goes direct.

The crystal of the week is Polychrome Jasper! This crystal is known for bringing passion and action, and can help you reach your true self. It clears negative energy and brings inspiring energy all around the carrier.

This is great for the retrogrades we currently have going on and can also help boost that Leo energy for the last week of Leo season!
