Love Notes: Week Aug 11-18, 2023

Brief love reading for each of the signs. Be sure to look at your Sun, Moon, and Rising signs for an expanded perspective.

Underlying Theme for All the Signs: The only way to remain grounded is to operate in fact and truth. Events are occurring at great speed and you can expect to leap forward with the clarity provided by excellent information and brilliant ideas. This may be creative in nature, concerning an agreement, legal issues, or the need to confront or take a stand in matters. But while you have increased mental power, will, and force of intellect at your disposal, you must also become fully embodied in the human experience. This means being more present, healthier, and deliberate in actions as you become aware of the dead, painful, numb, and unprocessed areas inside of you. Auspicious opportunities are on the horizon without you having to force or push matters to happen. As you begin to trust yourself, others do so as well. The result is a heightened intuition about the right possibilities coming to you in the perfect way at precisely the right time.
