Sagittarius - August 2019
How are things, Sagittarius?! Your ruling planet, Jupiter, turns direct in your sign on the 12th of August, and all will be right with the world once more! During his retrograde spell over the past four months, it may have felt as though you were unable to totally be yourself and express your outgoing personality to the max. This has taken its toll, as you have been forced to reflect on others’ opinions of you and the whole process has knocked your confidence. But it’s all going to be okay! As we move towards the end of the month, you will feel all that positive energy returning, and if you have made some tweaks here and there to allow yourself to take account of everyone’s feelings a little more, then so much the better. Jupiter’s fantastic connections with the Sun and Venus during the days up to the 15th are also wonderful for working on your spiritual development, and meeting up with people in new social groups who share your values and interests.
This month’s lunar cycle begins with a new Moon in your house of travel on the 1st, and an opportunity to take the trip of a lifetime could float by just within your reach around this date. Any contact you make with a different country or culture now will have a significant impact on you; you may notice a sudden enhanced fascination with certain places or people, it’s even possible you will relocate to somewhere very new and different. The full Moon of the 13th sends a sign to take a break from the accumulation of thoughts, opinions, facts and figures which are clogging up your mind, and make time for some relaxation and meditation. Information overload will get you down around this time; you need to pause and reset.
Mars meets with the Sun in your career zone after the 22nd, and it’s all systems go for those important promotions, as these two feisty boys put you in the running for the top spot! This aspect runs right through to the 20th of September, and it’s a highly dynamic month for you in relation to work projects; the competitive atmosphere will soon have you upping your game. A second new Moon on the 30th helps you on your way to where you want to be, and is an excellent time to attend job interviews, put your case forward for a pay rise or showcase your talents to those you want to impress. Positive links with Uranus here from the 19th into early September provide some very exciting and unique opportunities to take on a new job role.
Higher education and training courses are set to have a more important impact during the first three weeks of the month, as Venus enhances your interest in self-enlightenment. You will be feeling creative, so it’s an excellent time to take on a new hobby or simply find out more about the kind of subjects that interest you. Venus and the Sun form a close bond throughout this period, a fabulous time for exploring the world on your own terms and expressing moral values with courage and eloquence. If you are feeling romantic, you will be attracted to people who are highly intelligent and have lots of life experience; they may act as a mentor or have something important to teach you. Mercury’s link with Jupiter from the 18th to 24th is excellent for debating about important humanitarian issues; you are more likely to get yourself involved in an environmental or political campaign now which reflects your aims. Enjoy your August!
