July took a brutal look at your fears and darkest secrets, but things are more hopeful in August for you, Sagittarius. The month starts out with a Full Moon in technologically minded Aquarius and allows you to detach from the conversations that are no longer pushing you forward. You’ll be happy to know that mid-month introduces some shakeups to your routine. Bring on the adventure, you say! As we all know, you’ve never been a fan of the mundane day-to-day. That doesn’t mean you’ll be throwing caution to the wind in all areas, though. In fact, you might even surprise yourself with your professionalism and self-restraint this August.
A welcome relief from the heaviness of last month, a Full Moon in your third house sends electric waves of intellect your way on the 3rd. This culmination carries the detached vibe of Aquarius, so you can elevate your relationships by pushing your emotions to the side long enough to settle any spats. Although you might have trouble understanding a sibling or neighbor, you see the logic in making them feel heard. This benefits you too, as it satiates your need to experience platonic love.
Others might not be speaking your language after the 4th, but that’s just a byproduct of Mercury’s transit through your ninth house. You’re pretty used to your messages going right over the heads of the masses anyway. As long as you take pride in your freedom to express yourself, you could care less about if anyone else truly “gets” it.
Considering all the psychological headway you made last month, it’s no wonder everyone else has to play a bit of catch-up.
Yet, you’re craving a deep psychic connection or serious investment around the 7th. With Venus in Cancer and your eighth house of shared resources, you’re driven to show your affection by merging with others. Just don’t take it too personally when someone else can’t match your depths; not everyone is gifted with the naturally expansive perspective you’re known for.
On the other hand, it’s possible you’re running from a connection (or two). Bonding may entail some emotional stickiness, but you’re meant to enjoy the close quarters. Joint ventures are favored over solo expeditions this month anyway.
If you do pair up with someone – whether in business or romance, at home or abroad – just make sure you’re doing it for yourself rather than for someone else.
Asteroid Venus’ ingress into Leo wants you to focus on your sacred flame and the higher wisdom that fuels your confidence. This transit shines an undying light on your heart center so you can concentrate on the special purpose you’ve always known. Especially for artists and adventurers, Vesta’s journey here helps restore your creative relationship with joy and your sense of pride.
Of course, it can be hard to keep this focus on your inner light when it feels like the walls are caving in. When Saturn quintiles Chiron on the 12th, the limits of your finances and emotional resources are suffocating and triggering fears about being stuffed into a box.
Don’t brush these fears off in August, Sagittarius. It’s no coincidence that these problems are coming up now. That’s right – any box you find yourself in is probably self-imposed.
Through the second half of the month, you can slay these limitations using the rock-and-roll electricity of Uranus. The planet of surprises stations retrograde on the 15th for a five-month digital remaster of what you consider your routine. Despite the buzz in the air, you might not be in the mood for a high-energy remix, but that’s perfectly okay. You might be shocked when you find adventures finds you instead. In any case, you can totally surprise yourself with a few chill weekends lounging on the couch for once if you’re not feeling up to your usual plans.
By the 18th, your energy is heating back up again. That’s because sparks are flying in fellow fire signs Leo and Aries. On this day, the New Moon in your domicile trines Mars in your house of creativity and romance, so you couldn’t stop the flames if you tried – not that you’d want to!
You know just the way to organize your efforts when the Sun enters Virgo on the 22nd. Career, reputation, and social status all receive a boost under this attentive transit.
Last but not least, the first quarter moon in your own sign knocks down anything left standing in your way. After the 25th, you’re riding a rocket ship of intent to burst through your own ozone layer and see the galaxy from the other side. You’re expanding, growing, ascending, but not in any of the ways you expected. As you smile at oncoming September, the mystery of your destination is fine by you; your wandering soul has always loved the journey more anyway.
