Decelerate and stabilize: Uranus turns retrograde August 24
Need a little bit order in your Sagittarius court? On August 24, disruptor Uranus will begin a five-month retrograde that lasts until January 22. The side-spinning planet is reversing through Taurus and your sixth house of health, fitness and organization for the remainder of the 12 months, bringing change to those areas.
Revolutionary Uranus began a seven-year trek through Taurus in March 2019, sending seismic waves through all things “business as usual.” Your unhealthy habits and stagnant systems are getting a significant overhaul. The tech-savvy planet has also demanded that you just level up your digital game, out of your online presence to using helpful apps and electronics to remain organized.
On the office, Uranus could have introduced chaos amongst employees and repair providers. Stress levels can have spiked, or your schedule became unwieldy. The sixth house rules pets, and a furry critter could have demanded extra attention. Some Sagittarians found themselves in a supportive or provider role, one which introduced loads of unexpected plot twists.
Every breakdown has been a blessing, consider it or not—but in case your life seems like a puzzle with 1,000,000 scattered pieces throughout, the retrograde gives you a probability to catch up. Uranus is the planet of rebel and freedom, so hosting it on this orderly zone of your chart can feel paradoxical. But when you can design a way for structure to set you free—to create hacks that offer you more time as an alternative of miring you in processes—you’ll tap into the gift of this transit.
Your love life goes through loads of different moods this month, ending on a really different note than it starts on. Until August 11, romantic Venus is in Cancer and your intimate eighth house. It’s possible you’ll crave more privacy and one-on-one time, and when you’re single, you would possibly not be in much of a dating mood. But when you DO have a spouse, things could get extra steamy for the primary week and a half of the month!
Look ahead to jealousy and fixation while Venus is in Cancer. You could possibly be obsessing over a summer fling or simply feeling the have to be emotionally vulnerable in a protected space with a one who can handle the various dimensions of your personality. (Admit it, Sag, you might have loads of daring notes in that bottle—and it might probably be quite a bit to soak up!)
With Mars in Taurus and your practical sixth house until August 20, you’re busier than ever, and making time for love is admittedly not the very best priority. But you ARE within the mood to like one special someone: and that’s yourself! The sixth house rules fitness, and Mars in Taurus could encourage you to offer your OWN body some extra love with clean eating, healthy movement and (who knows?) perhaps some extra cardio behind closed doors later. There are many ways to work up a sweat, Sag!
When Venus moves into Leo and your jubilant, expansive eighth house from August 11 to September 5, your adventurous side returns full-force. Think far and wide relating to love: a romantic vacation, a long-distance spark, meeting someone when you travel. A phenomenal mind will turn you on now too, as Venus on this curious and artistic sector could draw you to an out-of-the-box thinker.
Summer’s best day for love arrives on August 18, when Venus forms a golden trine to no-limits Jupiter (your ruler), a moment when hearts AND minds open wide. Jupiter also happens to be in Aries and your fifth house of passion and pleasure, dialing up your senses. That is an incredible moment for a horny getaway or to have an honest conversation about every thing together with your person. You could possibly meet someone while traveling or connect across cultures with a dynamic and dashing character!
Your partnerships turn into a significant heat zone starting August 20. That day, sexy and intense Mars starts an prolonged seven-month visit to Gemini and your committed relationship house, staying until March 25, 2023. That is five times longer than the same old Mars visit, and while there could also be a bumpy patch later this 12 months while Mars is retrograde, it’s all summer spice and sexiness for now.
Coupled Sags may feel temperatures increase within the bedroom and out. Look ahead to tension that turns into fighting, because assertive Mars may also make you a bit combative and stressed. When you feel that things have been unfair between you and one other person, stick up for yourself. But careful to not bulldoze anyone or be impatient together with your S.O. either. As a fireplace sign, you have already got a little bit of a brief temper, and this transit won’t do much to assist that. Learning (and practicing) recent communication skills will go a LONG way.
Luck is in your side this month, Archer. The confident Leo Sun is heating up your expansive ninth house until August 22, encouraging you to take of venture. When you’re ready for a recent opportunity, apply for positions that will force you to stretch beyond your limits.
