Sagittarius (11/22 - 12/21)
This is a great month to enjoy new life experiences through travel, taking a class, or mingling with new people. The Leo Sun will shine in your 9th house of travel, adventure, and higher education through August 21st. Use these days to infuse your life with the excitement of exploration and acquisition of knowledge. Because Mercury will be retrograde, allow extra time to reach your destination. On August 22nd, the Sun will move into Virgo and your 10th house of career and public image. During the rest of August, your attention may turn to work matters, and your diligence could make a good impression on someone in a position of authority.
This will be a pivotal month to reaffirm your core values and philosophy on life. Mercury will be retrograde from August 12th to September 5th, directing your thoughts inward. You could feel as if you are conducting your own internal review. It will be a powerful month for self-reflection and reconnecting with your beliefs.
During the first days of August, we’ll already be in the “shadow phase” of Mercury retrograde, which discourages initiating new action. With Mercury in retrograde through your 10th house of career and public image, it will be a great time to finish up a work in progress. Use these days to reconnect with professional or personal contacts who may be able to help advance your goals.
Just when Uranus reaches the final degrees of Aries, it will station retrograde on August 3rd, prolonging its journey through this sign until mid-May of 2018. (However, it will dip back into Aries briefly November 2018 - early March 2019.) When Uranus goes retrograde this month, you’ll have the chance to reconnect with your creative life force. You could feel especially inspired to experience the arts. Attending plays, concerts, art exhibits, and other creative events will be especially nourishing.
In the coming months, you’ll have the opportunity to reconnect with your heart. It will be a great time to engage in a creative activity that brings you pleasure. Think about what fills you with joy and nourishes your “inner child.” When Uranus stations direct on January 2, 2018, you’ll be able to take some of the heart-centered energy you’ve accumulated and distribute it to loved ones and the world.
This month, we’ll experience two Eclipses that will offer powerful realizations and the inspiration for new beginnings. The Lunar Eclipse on August 7th will activate your 9th house of adventure and higher education as well as your 3rd house of communication and learning. You’re likely to gain valuable realizations through your experiences with others. You’ll be putting together some of the knowledge you’ve acquired over the past six months, and this Eclipse can provide the enlightenment you’ve been seeking. However, avoid getting too fanatical when presenting your point of view, as the Full Moon can elevate emotions and create an overly dramatic atmosphere.
On the 21st, a Solar Eclipse in Leo will initiate endings and beginnings related to your belief systems. Because Mercury will be retrograde, focus on what you need to release from your life at this time. You’re ready to embark on a new adventure, but first you’ll need to clear some mental space. What limiting messages have you internalized? How can you shift your mindset to allow yourself to feel more free? After mid-September, when the Mercury retrograde energy clears, you’ll be poised for action. Consider planning a trip or enrolling in a course of study. It’s time to challenge yourself to learn and grow!
