As the Sun enters Taurus this week, from May 8 to 14, 2023, you can tap into your determination and strength to manifest your dreams. Remember that hope is always present in every moment, and imagining a different reality requires courage. There are no limits or barriers to what you can achieve, and to embody this truth, you must work with the universe and current energies to manifest what’s available to you.
In doing so, you honor the rhythm of the earth and your soul, co-creating with the universe to build an incredible life. As the eclipse season‘s lucid tides recede, tune in to your deepest desires and needs, and let your beacon of hope lead you towards a new world, not just a new life.
The one-line manifestation every zodiac sign should say this week, May 8 – 14, 2023:
