I come bearing good news. Not only are we bathing in joy and love courtesy of Leo season, but we also have a wonderful astrology event occurring on August 11th: Jupiter, lord of growth, abundance, and blessings, turns direct.

Jupiter turned retrograde on April 10th and has been offering everyone the opportunity for inner growth. Although it played out differently for everyone individually, since April, we have all been focused on growing something within us, reorganizing parts of us, and clearing out the clutter in order to gain clarity in abundance.

Inner work isn’t always fun, but it’s highly rewarding.

And now, it’s time to harvest the fruits of your labor. Time for fun indeed. As Jupiter turns direct, we’re ready to finally step out of ourselves and witness all the good we’ve been preparing. Whatever you have been focusing on since April within yourself, you can finally see the results.

Up until the end of 2019, you’re going to enjoy the results of your efforts. This means that you can expect to have outer growth, significant signs of progress, and significant reorganization.

I like to talk about Jupiter as a planet that reorganizes—like when you decide to throw all of your clothes out of the closet and reorganize them by color. (Or is that just me?) Sometimes, this reorganization work is a bit daunting. Perhaps you have to get rid of clothes you still like, but haven’t worn in forever. Well, Jupiter is asking you to let go of the things that don’t spark joy—à la Marie Kondo—and focus on what brings you happiness and growth.

Starting today, blessings and results are pouring out for everyone. If you have provided the inner work, of course.

It’s a great time to manifest your wishes in the outer world. It’s also a great time to become crystal clear about what it is you want in the first place.
