“Follow your bliss,” wrote fellow fire sign Joseph Campbell, born Aries March 26, 1904, and this you do as July ends, trending into August. I see many of you traveling, getting out of Dodge and exploring other lands, as your action-packed ninth house supports. And if you can’t travel physically, you will in your mind, through some form of international contact, learning, or imagining. Inspired by your recent life expansionism, you are also building up to your most important mission statement to date. The full social Aquarius Moon in your third communications house occurs on Tuesday, August 1!
As the first week of August begins, look up and ask the full Moon for what you need. Ask her what you need to make your journey all the way.
The Moon will answer. She always does.
Even if you’re at a party and people are howling – or chitchatting – on either side of you. She will give you your private answer. Concentrate. Even if just for two minutes. Do not miss your date with destiny this night of August 1!
It’s been too much! Getting away helps refresh your outlook, your perspective, which has been horribly convoluted with the many recent financial demands and relationship decisions placed on you.
Supporting your getaway ninth house you have: life-giving Sun, brilliant Mercury, love and beauty planet Venus (retrograde July 22 – September 3), the new generous Leo Moon on Wednesday, August 16, the same day adoring Juno enters your ninth house also.
By mid-August, if you haven’t got away or replenished yourself in some form I will eat my hat.
In your expansive ninth house, traditionally ruled by Sagittarius, you have:
Lands far away
Different cultures, customs, languages
School, classes, college, academia
Law and lawyers
Broadening your horizons
Other cities – counties – states – countries – planets – galaxies
Other belief systems
Learning and exploring
And everyone wanting everything from you on top of it…
Now, Venus retrograde is a big deal. (Look at my instagram or Facebook for “Venus Retrograde Dos and Don’ts“).
Retrograde is all about going backwards, right? Going over stuff from the past. Over and over. Re-examining. Every step, every action. Rewind the video of your life. Over and over. What really happened. Rewind as many times as you need. You have to see every detail. Can’t miss, nor skip, a beat. Getting it right this time.
What you’ve done. What you can do better. How you can make your life better.
Backwards means the past, too, so old teachers resurface from the past at this time. Fantastic mentors begin appearing. You will love this. You have been going by your own light for so long. August will bring you a huge spiritual mentor and a huge career mentor. Let me know what happens!
The terrific line up in your ninth zone of philosophy, travel, publishing, law, academia, foreign lands and foreign contacts is impressive, to say the least.
If you feel that you have been limited to just your country – now it’s time to expand!
This means you will travel more, speak more abroad, and your work will spread beyond one country. You find yourself more involved in other cultures.
You become pickier now in terms of what you spend, and what you save. You find you can do with less STUFF for one thing. The upcoming spring-cleaning of your second house of cash and possessions creates a much more positive work environment for you. Pluto retrograde will actually help you here!
However hard on yourself you are (and you are), and however the amount of work you have to do to stay in your good place, you’ve got to admit you’re in a much more triumphant place than ever before!
You can hold your head high in pride when you see your old partners. You made it.
And a recent triumph is having an effect that’s contrary to the one everyone expected. You’ve made an unbelievable 180-degree turn and deserve to be celebrated. Everything looks different.
You’ve revolutionized your path – not an easy task!
Keep up the great work, ignore (when you can) the miniature hoodlums at your knees (or stomach), and don’t forget to exercise!
What forbidden path is tempting you to explore it now? I don’t think you can resist it, do you?
When it becomes too deafening in your house, remember to get out of it a little bit. You’re still wanted in the outside world, you know, dear Sag.
You’re still meant to be starring in the Anything-Can-Happen-Next Show that is your life.
Sagittarius painter Lucian Freud, grandson of Sigmund Freud, is extraordinary. As are you this August, with such colors in your ninth house – expanding, exploding horizons and amazing visions.
You can do it all, but don’t bite off more than you can chew. By August 18 you need a realistic budget. When you make plans with others, remember this.
I’ve always said that Sagittarius is the sign who says, when no one else can, “But the emperor isn’t wearing any clothes!” After August 5, you can finally set to rights confusions and misunderstandings from months, if not years, ago.
As August begins you begin a new relationship far away. It’s time to go for it, big-time.
New financial arrangements are promising and you get the best results towards the end of the month, so be patient! If you feel disappointed that things are not moving swiftly – I know how you feel!
Exercising restraint and patience might seem too saint-like to you so I would just go for examining the details.
You come up with brilliant ideas. Keep them flowing. Keep paying attention to them. Herein is your gold mine. Seriously.
Old people from the past come up at this time, too. For some of you, that forbidden love affair you weren’t supposed to have has been rearing its head again.
For you coupled Sag, expect a rekindling of passion.
In professional situations, repressing yourself sexually is not always the healthiest way to go about things, but it may be necessary now.
I may as well urge a moth not to go toward the light. (And I often do; it kills me when moths get burned.)
So, what are you going to do? Keep yourself in the house all day long? I don’t think so.
With monetary gain being so possible for you this August, however, you need to act like a grownup. (Remember Saturn testing you!) And to respect your creations. You have one of the most creative minds of the Zodiac.
Don’t throw that all away now.
Fantasize in secret if you have to. But in the world, go one step further than you thought you could. Or than you think you can.
