Sagittarius (23 November – 21 December)
You have your eyes on distant horizons this month. The Sun is in your fellow fire sign Leo until the 23rd, ruling your travel and study sector. Plus, communication planet, Mercury, is here all month. Up until the 19th, Mercury is retrograde, i.e. moving in reverse motion.
Mercury retrograde themes are often about communication chaos. It’s important that you allow extra time and flexibility if you’re travelling or taking a test or exam. Don’t leave anything until the last minute and double check your plans and paperwork. Be ready to move quickly if necessary.
At the same time, it benefits you to be away, to go somewhere different and take time out. Allow yourself the space and time to dream and contemplate and line up future plans. The weekend of the 10th/11th would be perfect to embrace new experiences.
This is the weekend of the Solar Eclipse in Leo, a New Moon with extra power. Although with Mercury retrograde gathered in to the eclipse, there’s a nod to the past, whether you’re keen to visit somewhere you’ve been before or news emerges from your past that guides you in a new direction.
Make any big decisions after the 19th but allow your imagination full rein up until then. Research and study and gather information, especially if you’re planning a big move later this year.
Action planet Mars retrograde is also on go slow for most of August. Up until the 13th, Mars is retrograde in your communication sector. This could be a tricky time for conversations or getting on with other people. Your belief systems may clash and, if you’re a typical Sagittarius, you’re the upholder of truth and justice.
Line up some new activist-style goals and plan your strategy to make your mark from mid-September onwards. This is your domain and you can make a difference in a political, social, humanitarian or environmental field.
On the 13th, Mars moves back into Capricorn and your personal money sector. If the past catches up with you financially, the 27th will prove to be a turning point when Mars turns direct. This is when your ambition returns big-time to earn more money or deal with a financial issue once and for all. You rediscover your fight.
This coincides with the Sun’s move into Virgo on the 23rd and your career and vocation sector. The Full Moon on the 26th could prove significant for career matters. Certainly, there’s a chance to strengthen your foundations and increase your future security.
Home and family matter to you a lot on or around the Jupiter-Neptune trine aspect on the 19th. This is the final connection of these two boundless planets and Jupiter’s your ruling planet. They first came together in December 2017 and for you they are about an emotional or sentimental journey.
They pull you back towards the past but in a way that’s releasing, healing even. Surrender to their bliss and sweep away the past to be ready for a bright new future in November this year.
Also, be there for your friends and ensure you have a shoulder to lean on, people in your life who nurture and nourish your soul. The planet of relating, Venus, is in Libra and your friendship sector from the 6th onwards. Love and friendship are linked and harmonious relationships boost your well-being. Just avoid any tricky money issues.
