Updated: Oct 31, 2020


It’s 2020, people! What are you waiting for?! It’s time to make 👏🏾 things 👏🏾 happen 👏🏾.


Read according to your Sun, Moon and Rising signs to find out how to best manifest your desires. A description for a sign can also apply to the particular area of life in which you wish to manifest certain desires. For example, if you would like to manifest a romantic or business partner, read for the sign that falls in your 7th House, along with your Sun, Moon and rising sign. If you would like to manifest your dream job, feel free to read for the signs in your 2nd, 6th and 10th houses. For more power and control in your life, read for the sign in your 8th House. For fame, popularity and social influence, read for your 2nd, 10th, 11th and 12th houses. To manifest inner and outer beauty, read for your 1st, 2nd and 7th Houses. Keep in mind that whatever planets sitting in any sign/house will color the style in which you manifest and the tools you utilize to do so. Lastly, if you are unsure about what area of life each house in astrology corresponds to, read my article for helpful keywords associated with each house.

Aries



Your best manifestation method is to engage in physical activity while keeping your intention in mind or reciting a mantra. The key here is to perform any kind of activity that gets your heart pumping. Any blood, sweat or tears you shed as you focus on your desires makes your manifestations more potent and arrive quicker. Here is one trick you can use: go to the gym, get on a rowing machine, and imagine your desires becoming realized each time you pull the handles towards you. Say to yourself "I attract romance/a better job/a happy family, etc.," believing that each additional tug on the machine brings your desires that much closer to you. Knives and fire are also helpful manifestation tools for you (handle safely, of course). Focus on the desires you are trying to manifest as you light a candle or chop up vegetables for a meal. Be creative with how you use these tools! Furthermore, you can try taking concrete action towards your goal on or near your birthday. According to ancient astrology, the sun is exalted in the sign of Aries, which represents birth. This energy, combined with the energy of your solar return (i.e. your birthday), bolsters your will, drive, and self-expression. Lastly, if you are trying to manifest love, Aries, you must start with yourself first; you must be the person you hope to attract, in order to attract the love you want. Say to yourself, "I love myself. I nurture myself. I care for myself. I respect myself. I honor myself. I believe in myself." And repeat.


Taurus



Your key tool to manifesting is nature, Taurus. Of all the zodiac signs, you are the most connected to the physical earth - this is your unique and most natural way of obtaining what you want in life. Use nature - dirt, flowers, rain, wood, leaves, the wind - to manifest your desires. For example, if you want to manifest more love in your life, gather some fresh roses and place them in your bedroom or by your doorstep. Alternatively, you can use rose essential oil to scent your pillows, or drink rose water or rosehips tea while you have your intention in mind - but the closer you can get to using the actual, natural plant, the better. In addition to plants, you can try lighting a candle and focusing on the fiery flame as you voice your intentions. And when you are outside, pick a bird and speak to it - tell this bird your desires and trust that it will deliver your message to Heaven. Crows are perfect messenger birds to work with when attracting your desires. If you would like to manifest more friends, collect some yellow roses in pairs or bunches and place them around your home, in your purse, or in your car. Additionally, if you would like to manifest financial security, try walking barefoot in the grass or dirt, or plant a garden of green vegetables, as growing and/or eating more green vegetables is a sure way for you to attract more material security in life.


Gemini



Your best manifestation tool is the written and spoken word, Gemini. Try writing out your intentions and repeating it out loud over and over again - in the car on your way to work, in the shower, or anywhere else you feel comfortable. You can also try filling your environment with certain inspiring individuals, ideas or vibrations that you believe are aligned with your intentions for manifestation, whether it be through listening to music, watching TV shows, or perusing literature. You almost want to inundate yourself with these materials so that you feel like you are living, eating and breathing your manifest desires. Another highly effective tool for you, Gemini, is to laugh, play and have fun! Do things that make you feel young and joyful, as this type of happy energy is especially useful in attracting more of what you want in life. Playing involves doing something physical with your body that engages both your head and your heart, thus putting your body, mind and heart into alignment. Simply put, this is being in the present moment! Geminis are naturally very good at this, so using it to your advantage will help your desires materialize more effectively.


Cancer



Ruled by the Moon, Cancer is a water sign. This predisposes Cancers to have a strong, naturally attractive nature. Cancers are very good at somehow, some way, getting exactly what they want and need, and the Universe provides it to them at exactly the right moment. The key for you, Cancer, is to not invest immense effort into attracting your desires; the more you worry, the more you push the things you want away. Just go with the flow! You can put this precept into practice by consciously aligning your intentions and desires to certain times of the day or seasons of the year to increase the potency of your manifestations. This method works especially well for Cancer because the moon is intrinsically linked to the concept of time. For example, spring and summer are wonderful times for you to put out the intention of attracting more love and romance into your life. You can also try voicing your intentions for career advancement at 8am or 8pm, as 8 is a powerful number linked to magic, money, transactions, exchanges, business and influence. If you use military time, try affirming your intentions for financial security at 20:20, as the numerology of this time equals 4 (2 + 0 + 2 + 0 = 4); 4 is a powerful number linked to stability and security of any kind. Moreover, you can enhance the potency of your manifestations by utilizing the energy of 11:11 (in addition to 1:11, 2:22, 3:33, 4:44, or 5:55). Cancers in general can work with the Moon cycle, setting intentions around the New Moon and focusing on rewards that have been reaped around the Full Moon. And if you are a female, you can work with your menstrual cycle to manifest your desires: ovulation is the perfect time to plant the seeds of your desires (new moon energy) while menstruation is the time you can envision the hard work and physical toll you've endured being paid off (full moon energy).


Leo



The key ingredients for you, Leo, are pride and confidence. Connecting to things that make you feel happy and good about yourself is the perfect way to match your vibration to the things you want to attract in life. Additionally, your confidence in yourself and in the fact that you deserve good things can work really well in your favor. The Sun, in principle, is a very extroverted energy; it is what it is, and it expresses itself unabashedly. So, if you want more of a certain thing in your life, your answer is to be the thing you are trying to attract. If you want to be happy, practice smiling with your tongue touching the roof of your mouth everyday for at least 30 seconds; you can do this multiple times a day for better results. If you want to be beautiful, pamper yourself and do things that make you feel beautiful, such as wearing flowers in your hair, rubbing your skin with moisturizing and balancing oils, or wearing your favorite color. It is beneficial to you to go outside, or even use the sun to your advantage! Say positive “I Am” affirmations to yourself as you sit in the sun and feel its warm rays on your skin. Find joy, vitality and romance in the places you can, and you will attract more of it. Lastly, be grateful for what you have, as gratitude attracts more to be grateful for!


Virgo



The trick for you, Virgo, is to set your intention while serving or helping yourself or others. For example, if you want to clear your life of “bad” energy, hold your intention in mind while you sweep the floor of your home. If you want to feel cared for and appreciated, think "I am cared for" as you feed your dog. If you want to feel abundant, think “I have more than enough money to pay my bills and buy things easily” as you purchase groceries for your family. Try thinking "I grow abundance/wealth/beauty, etc." as you water the plants in your home. It is very important that you focus on your desire while connecting to the physical representation or essence of what that desire could be. Use your wonderful imagination to visualize already having what you hope to manifest as you perform these actions. And if you want to add an extra oomph, go about these actions cheerfully! Have a smile on your face as you do and say these things. Finally, if you engage in charitable work, without expecting anything in return, it puts you in a frame of mind that allows you to give because you have something that someone else lacks. When you continue to focus on what you want but do not have at the present moment, you remain in a mindset of lack. Thus, the mindset of abundance is a very important tool in manifesting your desires. Abundance attracts abundance, while lack attracts lack.


Libra



Libra, your trick is to look into a mirror while you have your intention in mind or say a mantra (e.g. “I am attractive” “I am rich” “I am confident” “I am intelligent”). As mentioned above for your opposite sign Aries, you need to focus on yourself in order to attract certain things that you want. It will be much easier for you to attract love, for example, if you focus on embodying the qualities you would like to have in a partner. Say to yourself, "I love myself. I nurture myself. I care for myself. I respect myself. I honor myself. I believe in myself," and repeat. Think about an instance you have done each one of these things as you say each affirmation. And if these statements are hard for you to believe, then say, simply and generally, "I am loved. I am nurtured. I am cared for. I am respected" because, chances are, someone out there feels that way about you and/or has acted this way towards you. Partnership and balance, both within and without yourself, is the key to effective manifestation for Libra. Do something that makes you feel loved and supported while focusing on what you want (especially on or near your birthday!). You can spend time with loved ones on your birthday or even while meditating upon what you desire to manifest. Lastly, if you see someone who has what you want, be happy for them. Being happy for others will speed up your manifestations because you are coming from a place of abundance and not lack. This tricks your mind into feeling as if you already have what you want. Comparing and despairing will only hinder your progress.


Scorpio



A method that works extremely well for you, Scorpio, is to have sex while focusing on the thing that you want manifest. If you cannot have sex, kegels are an excellent alternative. Creating a special ritual focusing on the thing you want will also be very helpful to you. You are a natural at rituals and ceremonial performances, so these gifts will be an asset to actualizing your desires. For instance, if you want to manifest love, then upon arriving home from work every night, hug yourself and say “Welcome home.” Or you can sleep on one side of the bed every night, making physical and mental room for the person you hope to share your life with. Every morning when you wake up, you can get on your knees, bow to Divinity, and say “I am grateful for waking up this morning. I am thankful for my life. I pray that I use it for good.” This will attract power, abundance, good energy and gratitude. Believe it or not, the bathroom also helps Scorpios in particular in manifesting their desires. On your next bathroom break, channel your imagination into focusing on the life that you are working to create. Visualization, plus water, plus letting s**t go is a powerful combination when it comes to realizing your desires. Lastly, do not underestimate the power of fire! Incorporating candle magic into your rituals and ceremonies will add potency to your manifestations.


Sagittarius



Doing anything that makes you feel closer to Source than you normally are in your day-to-day will strengthen your manifestations. Whether that’s being out in nature, having sex, doing yoga, listening to music, praying, switching to a healthier diet for a period of time, or blowing bubbles, do something that makes you feel connected on a level higher than the mundane as you focus on what you are trying to manifest. Also, believe that others are there to support you, and humble yourself enough to rely on the help of others. If you want financial success, seek out mentors who can help you attain the level of success that you desire. YouTube is a great place to start if you are unable to think of anyone you can approach personally. Furthermore, your physical body is a great tool for you to utilize. Imagine that your legs and feet take you closer to the love of your life every time you walk. Imagine your fingers making you more money every time you write or type on a computer. Imagine yourself growing in wisdom and intelligence every time you color, paint or draw. The keys here are to not depend solely on yourself; to accept help when and where you can; and to use your physical body and senses to attract your desires and make them a reality. If you live life as if everything is rigged in your favor, you will be that much closer to manifesting your desires.


Capricorn



“I work hard to get [insert what you want here].” Repeat this to yourself over and over again, until you believe it. This will trick your mind into putting in the physical effort needed to achieve what you want to manifest materially. Another key for you, Capricorn, is to let go. Live modestly and get rid of things that only take up space in your life. The less weight you carry, the easier it will be for you to climb to the top of the mountain. It is imperative that you let go of things that no longer serve you, in order to leave enough physical space in your environment to invite that which you want to manifest. Capricorns are prone to rely heavily on others, not realizing that they themselves possess what it takes to manifest the things they want in their own lives. Instead of achieving their ideal of success themselves, Capricorns tend to comfortably rely on the successful people around them. Instead of working to make themselves feel happy, beautiful and fulfilled, they fall back on making friends with other people who are happy, beautiful and fulfilled. It is as if the onus for obtaining their desires falls solely on the shoulders of others, and not on that of the Capricorn’s. Though this pattern helps you get closer to your desires, it hinders you from materializing them for yourself in your own life. What you need to do is consciously attribute your success to the efforts of others. For instance, go to an art gallery and say to yourself, “The more art that I see, the more beautiful of a person I am.” Go to a concert and set the intention “The more people sing, the more talented I become." Your personal efforts plus the efforts of others will manifest your desires quickly and catapult you to success.


Aquarius



Aquarius, your greatest asset is optimism. Believe in the good in the world! Believe that good things are out there and are possible. Believe that you deserve good things to happen to you! Cynicism will not help you. There is good in the world, and you are worthy of those good things. You are worthy, simply because you are a life. If you struggle to have faith in the good in life, you must surround yourself with people who are in alignment with the things you are trying to manifest. Put yourself in environments that concurrently increase your hope and support your desires. Surround yourself with people who are beautiful, inside and out, if you want to feel more attractive. Surround yourself with people you feel are successful if you want to manifest more material abundance in your life; you can go to a networking event...or spend some time in a boujee cafe! Collective energy is huge here; direct the collective energies when and how you can so that they are tilted in your favor. Aquarius rules not only innovative technology, but also the metaphysical sciences. Thus, you can try listening to binaural beats or working with healing crystals. For example, you can listen to binaural beats to attract money while you work or bring rose quartz into the shower with you to attract love. But alas...it all comes down to you, Aquarius. Convince yourself that you expect, deserve, will receive and will keep your realized desires, and that you are ready for the positive changes that will undoubtedly occur in your life; this will allow you to manifest effectively with confidence and ease.


Pisces



Pisces is the closest to Source. Thus, they have the easiest time manifesting as they have more tools available to them. A big part of manifesting for you, Pisces, is engaging in your creativity. Dancing, singing or painting while focusing on your intention are powerful methods of manifestation. Write a song detailing the desires you wish to manifest and sing it out loud. Additionally, drinking water while visualizing already having what you desire makes your manifestations that much more grounding, allowing them to come to fruition more quickly. When you take a shower, attach each desire of yours to each droplet of water that comes out of the nozzle, and imagine these desires coming to fruition as they consistently hit your skin and cascade down your body. Another trick for you, Pisces, is to take special care of your feet: wash them, moisturize them, get a pedicure, and wear soft, fuzzy socks. Pisces rules the feet, and the feet are the bedrock of abundance. Lastly, sleep can be a very helpful tool when manifesting your desires. You can place a vision board or a mantra you’ve written down on a piece of paper under your pillow. You can sleep with a diffuser on and use essential oils that correlate to what you hope to manifest (e.g. rose for love, rosemary for protection, lemon for joy). You can also meditate on your desire or listen to binaural beats that correspond to what you are trying to manifest as you drift to sleep. By implementing these tools, you plant the seeds - your desires - in the fertile ground, the womb-space that is your subconscious. Your subconscious will eventually take those seeds and birth them into reality.
