Summary Sagittarius Horoscope: An emphasis on travel and communication, with two major eclipses in these sectors. Mercury retrograde could see a career matter come up for review. Saturn direct in your sign could see a a personal project or relationship matter become more clear.
Extended Sagittarius Horoscope: There’s sure to be lots of activity in your life this month, with two game changing eclipses, Mercury and Uranus going retrograde, and Saturn going direct!
The month begins with two major heavy hitting planets, Jupiter (your ruler) and Pluto, squaring one another on August 4th in your goals and money houses. You might spend money on something important to you at this time- perhaps a long-term goal or an event.
This aspect has occurred before- in late November 2016 and late March 2017– so think back to those times for clues as to themes that could emerge.
Then, the first eclipse will be a lunar eclipse on August 7th in your communication house. Luckily, this eclipse will reach out happily to your ruler, good luck, Jupiter in your goals zone, as well as stable Saturn in your sign, suggesting that you could go on a trip with friends or complete a writing or speaking project. It’s also possible you make a commitment.
One thing to be watchful of, however, is the fact that energizer Mars will be zooming through your 9th house of travel and education, directly opposite this eclipse. It’s possible that you will have a transportation or communication problem.
Some good days to address communication needs are August 10th, 13th, 16th, 20th, 21st, 22nd, and 27th. Luckily, I don’t see any other negative squares or oppositions between planets in this house this month!
In fact, the solar eclipse on August 21st takes place in this very same house of travel and education, and it is the most gorgeous eclipse! It will conjunct motivator Mars and the fated North Node, reach out happily to Jupiter and Uranus in your love and goals houses, and trine stable Saturn in your sign!
This is a wonderful time to go on a trip with friends or a romantic partner. It’s also a good time to work on creative writing projects, or start up companies.
There is reason to suggest that you make any moves earlier than the eclipse, however, as on August 13th Mercury goes retrograde, and I think we all know to stay away from Mercury retrograde by now!
This time, it will take place in Virgo and your 10th house of career, so you may need to review and revise a job or career path. I would avoid making any major commitments “official” during this time or signing any contracts. You could find down the road that whatever you committed to is not what you thought it was.
Mercury also rules your 7th house of partnerships, so this is an area of life that could come up for review as well. Mercury goes direct on September 5th. .
Switching gears, you’ll be pleased to hear that love planet Venus is gliding through your 8th house of finances this month, possibly helping you out with your bills!
Venus will make loving aspects to Mercury, Neptune, and Pluto respectively on August 10th, 12th, and 15th, so these are wonderful days to address financial needs.
Days I would avoid are August 17th and August 24th, when Venus will be angry with Jupiter and then Uranus in your love and goals houses.
Luckily, August 27th sees the Sun in your goals house reach out happily to Saturn in your sign. Even better, on August 25th, Saturn goes direct in your sign, suggesting that a personal project or relationship matter will speed up or become easier.
Summary Sagittarius Horoscope: A full moon on July 8th could bring a financial matter to a head. You could plan or go on a fun vacation with the new moon on July 23rd.
Extended Sagittarius Horoscope: June 23rd saw a new moon in your financial house, conjunct Mercury and Mars in the same house, and making a loose square to Jupiter (your ruler) in your goals zone.
It’s possible that you took out a loan to spend on something important to you, or that you received money from a bonus or inheritance.
The first few weeks of the month continue this focus on money, with your best day to take action being July 5th, when the Sun makes a harmonious trine to Neptune in your home house.
However, there are some hard aspects going on in your financial house throughout the month, which could bring challenges your way. Days to watch out for are July 2nd, 4th, 9th, 17th, and 20th. July 5th is especially dubious since your ruler, Jupiter, will be involved.
Then, July 8th sees full moon in your salary zone, and in truth, this moon is mixed.
While the moon will make a loving trine to Neptune in your home house, suggesting you could buy or sell a home, or get a work from home position, it will conjunct transformational Pluto, oppose warrior Mars in your other financial house (shared money), and square good luck Jupiter in your goals zone.
It’s possible that you’ll be hit with an expense at this time, perhaps in regards to an event, project, or goal you are planning. Alternatively, you could end a job in order to be with your family more, and realize that you have to depend more on your spouse or partner for financial help.
Luckily, relationship matters seem to go well this month, with loving Venus gliding her way through Gemini. Good days to address these types of needs are July 18th, 26th, and 30th.
I would avoid July 17th and 24th for relationship matters.
As the month progresses, planets begin to trickle into Leo and your 9th house of travel and education. Luckily, it’s all good news on this front, as Mercury makes harmonious aspects with Venus, Jupiter (your ruler), Saturn, the True Node, and Uranus on July 7th, 14th, 19th, 21st, and 24th respectively.
In fact, you get a lovely new moon in this same 9th house on July 23th, suggesting that you may even go on a fun vacation!
Next month offers even more possibilities for leisure and vacation, since there will be a stunning solar eclipse in Leo (your 9th house) on August 21st.
