Despite the fact that Mercury will spend the whole month in your career sector and the Sun will return on the 23rd August, it is very unlikely that life will become all work and no play. Not only is this being balanced by some very powerful forces in play on the adventurous front, the professional gods themselves are in no hurry. Mercury returned to your career sector on the 26th July for what should have been 15 day, fast paced and urgency fuelled sprint. Instead Mercury is slowing down ahead of a retrograde turn on the 13th August and won’t leave until later next month.
This is a chance to not only slowly get your head in the game, ideas on the table and the communication lines open, but to then retrace your steps. Even the Sun’s return might throw the solar spotlight on your career situation and matters, but until Mars returns early next month, there will be no urgency. It is next month that the pace will pick up, allowing you to start slow and steady. Just as well, for you not only have the Sun in your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery until the 23rd August and Mars fuelling a passion for adventure all month, but a total solar eclipse here on the 22nd August.
This brings the potential for major new beginnings and a chance to embark on new journeys, across all aspects of your life. In the meantime, while Venus is creating a good month for money matters, there is an opportunity for a communication and/or relationship breakthrough around the 8th August. You can thank a lunar eclipse in your communication sector, a week after Venus’ departure from your relationship sector for that.
Sagittarius August 2017 Love Horoscope
Even though Venus will leave your relationship sector on the 1st August, so early that she’ll be gone before first sunrise of the new month, her influence will be stamped over the whole month. Venus was not only the last planet to move through your relationship sector this year, something that will influence your relationships for the coming year. Venus was also the last planet to move into opposition with Saturn in Sagittarius, for another 28 years. Since Saturn returned in 2014, no planet has been able to move through your relationship sector without moving into opposition.
Always in the middle months of each year, when Venus moved into opposition last month it was for the third year in a row and this was the fifth opposition this year. Each time this brought personal and/or relationship tensions to a head, while taking you one step closer to getting to the heart of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. How fitting then that the last planet to confront this for another 28 years was Venus, planet of love and guardian of your relationships.
That opposition only peaked on the 24th/25th July, so is still relatively fresh. By the time you reach the lunar eclipse in your communication sector on the 8th August, this will give any remaining unsaid words a voice. With Venus gone this gives the love gods their turn, with the doors open to the past and second chances on the romantic front. After so much focus on your relationships over recent months, romantic matters are getting their turn.
Sagittarius August 2017 Money Horoscope
This is the month that your financial year should have shifted back to its natural default, which means shifting back to just being about income matters. This is the natural default of any financial year and has been for nine years now, due to the fact that you have Pluto in your income sector from 2008 to 2024. When there is no planetary activity on the financial front, this is where all the money gods shift their focus.
This keeps the money gods employed 365 days out of every year. However, when there is planetary activity on the financial front the money gods have to divide and conquer. Stalwart money gods will stay on focused on income matters, while the other half will be dispatched to take care of money matters, which are only active for a few months each year. When Mars left your financial sector on the 21st July and the Sun on the 23rd July, this should have brought all the focus on your financial situation and money matters to a close for the year. Last year that was the case, but not this year and you can thank Venus and Ceres for that.
Ceres because she is making her first visit to your financial sector in four years and Venus because held back by a retrograde phase earlier in the year she doesn’t return until the 1st August. Income forces won’t be happy about that, until they realise it is Venus. For while Venus is the planet of money her DNA is linked to income. So advocating for money matters, she will use the competition between income and money matters to squeeze out as much untapped income potential as possible. At the same time Venus and Ceres create some positive and undemanding focus on money matters.
Sagittarius August 2017 Career Horoscope
Even though the Sun will always return to your career sector on the 23rd August, things kicked off four weeks earlier this year, with Mercury’s return on the 26th July. This allows you to start the month with your head in the game, ideas on the table and the communication lines open. Yet from the get go it will also be clear that this year things are on a slow burn. Mercury is the fastest planet in the solar system and will usually move through in just 15 days.
This creates a short and urgent period where you need to be thinking on your feet, making choices, decisions and plans on the run. However, Mercury is already slowing down as you move into the new month, ahead of a retrograde turn on the 13th August. This will see Mercury do a U turn and retrace his steps. This will eventually take him back out for the first 10 days of September, before starting again from the beginning. This means that every step that Mercury has taken from the 26th July to the 13th August he’ll take three times over. The first time is getting to that U point, in which case he’ll retrace the same steps for a second time.
Then, when he turns direct early next month he’ll start over again, tracing the same steps for the third time. This not only gives you time to consider your options and to think things through, but with the knowledge if you want to change your mind you have an opportunity for a do over. The Sun and Mercury will align on the 27th August and with the Sun moving forward and Mercury moving back, they’ll bring 20/20 hindsight and foresight together.
