Sagittarius Horoscope: August 2013
Seeds of Change
The deep rumbling you may be feeling now is the beginning of a process that could radically alter your life by next spring. Visionary Jupiter in your 8th House of Deep Sharing makes the first in a series of three oppositions with transformational Pluto on August 7, and the first of three squares with revolutionary Uranus on August 21. Pluto can provoke a power struggle or financial squeeze, while Uranus incites a desire to get away from it all.
On the positive side, the intensity of these aspects motivates you to maximize your abilities and seek new sources of inspiration through creative activities with children or, perhaps, an unconventional love affair. The impact of these urges climaxes on April 20, 2014, when these transits are complete.
The Leo New Moon on August 6 falls in your 9th House of Higher Truth, opening your mind to a new direction in life with its harmonious trine to progressive Uranus. Temper an impulse to act too quickly; unexpected moves may not be well received by others, who need more time to understand your change of plans.
Intellectual Mercury's shift into proud Leo and your educational 9th house increases your thirst for learning and ramps up your powers of persuasion on August 8. Cooperative Venus moves into gracious Libra and your 11th House of Social Networking on August 16 to stimulate your interest in community service and attract new friends. Practical issues take center stage when the Sun and Mercury enter hardworking Virgo and your 10th House of Career on August 22 and 23. Concentrating on immediate tasks and refining your skills could raise your status on the job, but a lack of focus reduces your effectiveness.
Keep in Mind this Month
If you aspire to turn your life in a radical new direction, lay down a solid foundation with discipline and competence to create positive change.
Key Dates for Sagittarius
August 4: The Amazing Race
A fiery trine between the Sun in lively Leo and Uranus in audacious Aries stimulates your hunger for new experiences. You find yourself taking chances in pursuit of a good time and expressing your feelings in a more dramatic way thanks to this alignment of high-energy planets in your 9th House of Getaways and your 5th House of Fun and Games. Romantic feelings may be aroused when you push past personal limits and explore unfamiliar territory.
SUPER NOVA DAYS
August 19-22: Embrace the Unknown
Your patience runs out, along with your willingness to follow rules, on August 19 when the Sun makes stressful aspects with Jupiter and Uranus. Rebellious feelings are not favorable for cooperation, but a breakthrough conversation, propelled by the futuristic Aquarius Full Moon in your 3rd House of Communication on August 20, could aim you in an exciting new direction. The high energy of the Jupiter-Uranus square on August 21 intensifies when Mercury forms hard aspects to this planetary pair on August 22. Brilliant insights pop out of thin air while your nerves are pulled taut by unexpected news. An overflow of information and last-minute deadlines creates tension and provokes verbal conflict. Adopting a flexible attitude allows you to learn something new without unraveling from the pressure.
