Exhale the stress of the world and light some fragrant clove incense as you allow yourself to ground into the workings of the universe. Remember that you are connected to the energy surrounding you, and within yourself, hold immense power to attract and manifest what you desire. Transformation is a process of alchemy in which you can take what is and create it into anything you wish, yet it is one that begins within.
Wednesday, September 20, the Sun in Virgo aligns auspiciously with retrograde Pluto in Capricorn, helping you step back into your internal power and see how you can control not only what you manifest but also your fate.
The Sun rules your external self, and in Virgo, it is concerned with healing and planning for the future, while Pluto rules all that is unseen, and in Capricorn, it is helping you tap into your inner power. You are genuinely as influential and commanding as the universe, and when you realize this, you can co-create and manifest whatever you desire or wish. But to step into your power, you must honor your worthiness and purpose, washing anything that came before in the acceptance of necessity.
Elements For Your Rituals, Wednesday, September 20
Leading Energy: Capricorn, Earth
Best Time For Your Ritual: Anytime
Chakra Point: Root
Herbs: Cinnamon, Sage, and Rosemary

It was all for a purpose, and as the stars continue to usher in a new chapter, you are being reminded that you are as powerful as the universe you are trying to manifest with. You have control over yourself and your life, and because of that, you can control your destiny. But there is no manifesting without transformation, and that begins within yourself as you own your inner power and recognize that you always have had the ability to create change, trust the divine flow of life, and confidently know that nothing can stop you because you are everything.
