Love Notes: Week Aug 18-25, 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: This week connects you to a strong, charismatic individual or you become one. Situations require that you use the brilliance of your mind and the passion of your heart to be a powerful leader who inspires and empowers others. Author Leroy Eimes wrote, “A leader is one who sees more than others see, who sees farther than others see and who sees before others see.” Right now your sights are only on a tiny part of the picture and this limited view is keeping you stuck in a place you’d rather not be. True confidence in your abilities means relinquishing rigidity and releasing fear to view life from a perspective of faith. If you find yourself in a constant state of anxiety, worry, or stress it’s an indication that you haven’t yet taken full responsibility for creating your reality. The onus is on you to focus only on what you actually wish to experience, allow yourself to receive it, and let the Universe take care of how the magic will appear.
