Sagittarius July 2018 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


There are some exciting developments this month, in a number of different clusters. One of those clusters surrounds income, work and career matters, where separately developments that wouldn’t be game changing have the potential to be, because they are coming together at the same time. While the Sun won’t return to your career sector until later next month, Ceres’ return late last month and Venus’ return on the 11th July have got things moving early. This comes as things settle on the income front and there are new developments on the job front.

However, balance is also an important theme this month, whether it’s a balance between money coming in and money going out or between knowing when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off. For while this is a good month for income matters, with the Sun in your financial sector until the 23rd July, there is also a need to focus on your financial situation and money matters. This is when you’re able to take care of any financial housekeeping, but also begin any new financial projects or just new beginnings in general.

On a personal level, one of the most significant events this month is Jupiter’s direct turn on the 11th July. While Jupiter will still be in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart and this will still be drawing your focus inwards and backwards, the dynamics shift. Last October Jupiter returned to spend 13 months bringing home a 12 year Jupiter cycle of expansion that began 11 years earlier, as well as to help prepare for the start of a new 12 year cycle of expansion in November. Until now the focus has been on bringing the old cycle home, but once he turns direct on the 11th July it becomes more about preparing for the future.

Love 2017Sagittarius July 2018 Love Horoscope

The Sun’s departure from your relationship sector on the 21st June has not just taken the solar spotlight off your relationships, but has brought all planetary activity for the year to a close. This was a short and fairly uneventful annual update, which was just what you and your relationships needed. This year the only planets to visit were the Sun, Mercury and Venus, the bare minimum of planetary activity, but with none of the push back from Saturn that there had been over the last three years. This has left you with a better sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you.

This month all the focus shifts back to matters of the heart and all things romantic, but here the dynamics are shifting. Since Uranus left your romantic sector in April, your romantic sector has been occupied by three of the minor planets with Juno, Chiron and Eris all playing a role in keeping the momentum going. This isn’t the major focus that there has been on romantic matters over the last eight years, but with Uranus retrograding back in later in the year, there is enough support to keep the momentum going.

It is in the early days of the month that things start to change. It begins with Juno’s departure on the 1st July, with the queen of commitment leaving you with a sense of conviction, but taking away any urgency. It is just four days later that Chiron, planet of healing turns retrograde on the 5th July, with the healing process beginning in earnest. This will be followed by Eris’ retrograde turn on the 21st July, putting both remaining planets in retrograde motion. As the doors open to the past and second chances, they will also open to greater healing.

Money 2017Sagittarius July 2018 Money Horoscope

There will always be a lot of focus on money matters at this time of year, due to the fact that the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of July in your financial sector. This is when the solar spotlight is on your financial situation and money matters, always has been and always will. Things became more complicated when Pluto returned to your income sector in 2008, where he will stay until 2024. For since then, the Sun has not been able to move through your financial sector without moving into opposition and creating some financial tension.

However, after eight years this has become the norm and with Pluto always in retrograde motion at this time of year, this has served to give stalled income matters a much needed push and to remind you of a need to balance money coming in and money going out. Things became even more complicated when Saturn returned to your income sector last December, for the first time in three decades. It was the Sun and Saturn’s opposition during a Full Moon late last month that may have created financial tension that is still dropping back.

Yet with the worst over and both sides having received the wakeup calls needed, it’s time to get back to business. For Saturn and Pluto, both in retrograde motion in your income sector, this means focusing on untapped income potential, just as there are exciting new developments on the job and career fronts. For the Sun this means making the most of his final weeks before leaving on the 23rd July. Yet it is a New Moon on the 13th July that could be a wildcard. Instead of an ordinary New Moon, this is a solar eclipse, with the potential for unexpected developments or significant new opportunities or beginnings.

Career 2017Sagittarius July 2018 Career Horoscope

When Uranus returned to your work sector in April, this turned a very ordinary area of your chart into something extraordinary. When the Sun left a few days later, this should have brought all planetary activity on the job front to a close for the year but instead, this began a new journey towards job growth and the quest for your personal truth, that won’t run its course until 2026. Juno’s return to your work sector on the 1st July will bring another dynamic into play. Uranus is a giant of a planet and Juno, queen of commitment is a minor player.

Yet it is Juno’s sense of commitment and determination that will add another string to your bow and the timing couldn’t be better. For it was in the closing days of June that Ceres, dwarf planet and the queen of nurturing returned to your career sector and with Venus returning on the 10th July, all of a sudden things are starting to move on the career front for the first time this year. With the Sun not returning until later next month and Mercury until early September, this is opening the doors to new career options much earlier in the year than you would normally expect.

Juno and Ceres aren’t major players, but what makes their return to your work and career sector such a game changer, is that they are able to connect forces in play across the income, work and career fronts in the way that major forces can’t. For example, while Uranus is in your work sector until 2026, Saturn is in your income sector until 2020 and Pluto until 2024, they will never connect directly. They are simply too far apart and move too slowly. Yet Juno, Venus and Ceres don’t have that problem, able to act as go betweens, uniting forces in play across the income, work and career fronts.
