Get ready to sizzle
Take that highway to heaven
Ditch those road blocks
Ruler Jupiter is fully retroactive and once Uranus heads backwards from the 24th, all the outer planets are retrograde. You also have Mercury entering its Retro Lite phase in your 10th from the 21st. It will continue on into your 11th before turning full fat retro next month. But if engaged in that favourite Sag activity travel, don’t leave home without that back-up plan.
What’s fired up for you this month? Love, Sag! Despite your ruler backwards in your romance sector, you have Mars entering your 7th on the 20th where it is set for a record breaking stay. This is due to a rare retrograde while in here. That doesn’t occur until October so for now, Mars is in full throttle passion mode. Singles – you want someone who can keep up with your exuberance and sense of adventure. Stick in the muds need not apply. If you are settled do ensure you are giving enough time to your partner and are not so caught up with your own plans, you neglect to factor in theirs.
Venus is also on the move this month into your 9th and will remain in here after Mercury (4th) and the Sun (23rd) exit this house. So, river deep, mountain high loves. For who or what lights your fire to keep the song metaphor going.
You can’t fake the feeling – or the absence of it. Not that you are usually able to do that anyway, Sag. You are far too open and direct for subterfuge. Just that Mars in your 7th shows you what’s hot and what has most definitely long gone off the boil. Be honest with yourself and also, with the other party if this is the temperature. Long term relationships ebb and flow and enter peaks and troughs. This is natural so don’t mistake you and your boo hitting a quiet patch for an inability to start the fire again. You know the difference deep down anyway.
Do you feel you can’t successfully be yourself or succeed on your chosen path due to your sexual or gender identity? There’s barriers to be examined and broken down when Mercury and Ganymed meet in your 10th on the 15th. This is our ‘public’ house and it rules our status and how we are seen and perceived. Ganymed is associated with the LGBTQIA+ communities. But in here is saying No External Labeling by Others. It’s about being seen for what you contribute or do more than anything else. Challenge any attempt to pigeon hole or restrict you.
The full Moon in your 3rd on the 12th is known as the Sturgeon, Grain or Lynx Moon and should offer good times and lighten the load provided you are in the right company, Sag. This is a fabulous full Moon for date night with that significant other especially if you want to let them know how important they are to you. It allows conversation to flow and encourages emotional honesty and sharing. If you are open, it can transform your understanding of what makes your other half tick. Dating someone new? You can’t ask too many questions under this Moon. Do look to the answers carefully however.
It will square Uranus in your 6th so under it, you need to ensure you don’t skip the details or leave time-sensitive tasks until the last minute. In fast, be prepared for something unexpected to force you to shuffle that schedule around. If you have taken care of what you know you need to do, you won’t be caught short however and can handle anything extra that comes your way. For more on what this full Moon may bring you, see your Full Moon in Aquarius Moonscope.
Venus in your 9th bigs up that desire for love, travel and also to get yourself noticed, Sag. Big, bold, beautiful moves can be made now. Your best day of the month for absolutely anything – and where love and luck is a factor and anything goes for you is the 18th when Venus will trine Jupiter in your 5th. Stand out, shine and express yourself as this is THE best day for romance and attraction of the month. Make that move. The 22nd could put you in the winners circle in some way or offer a release into opportunity and freedom.
This now includes anything to do with work, your career or which sends you personal stock soaring. It is now time to look at what you’ve achieved so far this year and begin to consolidate that. And to take the rest of those ambitions seriously. Do this without feeling stressed about it. In fact, if you have taken on too much recently, you will be all too aware of it especially at the time of the new Moon on the 27th. What restricts you or has you feeling less than your best may in fact have been self-created. Or you simply have the power to release it if you take the time to examine this more closely. For more on this see your New Moon in Virgo Moonscope.
Take some time with this whether you want to change up your routine or even your entire job. The Venus/Saturn opposition the next day shows you how to work this in a way that is constructive and lasting. Once you have thought this through, a radical approach or even an expected element allows you to free yourself by the month’s end. You’re into September with a lighter, brighter approach to success, Sag.
In a nutshell: Mars in your partnership sector tells you who or what’s hot – or not, Sag. You can’t fake the feeling. Venus in your travel sector has you reaching for something bigger – and leap frogging barriers between you and what you love.
