Some of you will feel as if you have ground to a halt somewhere along the line this month. That's simply because your ruler Jupiter, the biggest planet in the solar system and your ruling planet of abundance and opportunity begins his first retrograde journey in some time in your sign through mid-August.
You are chafing at the cosmic bit to get things done too, with the Sun, Venus, Mercury and a New Moon April 5 all spending time in Aries, your fellow fire sign and 5th house of romance, self-fulfillment and creativity. Not so fast Sags! As much as you might want to leap ahead into unknown and exciting territory, the Universe is suggesting you hold your roll for the time being and focus on one thing at a time.
Any and all delays you experience this month come down to one thing. You need to review any and all details connected to any plans, projects or ideas that you have. Otherwise, things may not get off the ground. You're known for being a bit 'fly by night' at times and rush in when cooler heads need to prevail. April is definitely going to be a teaching moment for you, especially once Jupiter goes out of phase.
One of the biggest obstacles you face as a Sagittarius in life is believing that any time is the right time to start anything. Throwing yourself into life full force without thinking about any and all blowback is a brave and impetuous thing to do indeed. Sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn't. Just because you're ready doesn't necessarily mean that others are ready to jump into action as well. You need to pace yourself this month. Not get ahead of yourself and not instinctively thinking that everyone is on your team. There are haters out there for sure! Jealous people who aren't so happy with your gung-ho attitude and determined to find a way to throw down a few cosmic road spikes here and there to deflate your tires. Don't let them see you coming!

Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)
The biggest news this month is the return of your ruler Jupiter to your sign. November 9 Jupiter lands in your 1st house of ego and personality where he stays through the end of the year and into 2019. Jupiter is the lucky planet, the largest planet in the solar system and is happiest and achieves the most when he is in your sign. Let the good times roll Sagittarius!
The weekend of the 9th is the perfect cosmic backdrop for you to enjoy the company of family members and friends you think of as family. Venus’s movement forward in lovely Libra, your 11th house of hopes, wishes and friendship makes this a very special time indeed for you – especially for those of you who are feeling extra friendly towards one friend in particular. If you are thinking of taking a friendly relationship to the next level, the beginning of November 2018 is the perfect time for you to do that. Read more about this in my November Lovescopes!
If you’ve been having financial issues and are not quite sure how to handle them and move forward with clarity and wisdom about money,you can start to relax and focus all of that worrying energy on something more important. On the 16th Venus the Goddess of cash flow and love finally moves direct and lands up in Libra, a very good match up cosmically for you. While it might take a few days to get the show back on the road, don’t be impatient (one of your biggest issues – impatience). The trick is for you to retrace your steps, see what went wrong and not repeat that same mistake again.
The Full Moon on the 22nd will be in chatty funny Gemini, your opposite sign and your house of relationships and marriage. It’s the perfect time for those of you who are in committed relationships and not exactly on the same page or wavelength as your other half to wade through any and all hotspots and work out how to make it work for the both of you. It’s also the perfect time for you to spend time with friends and family and to catch up with everyone (which is what Thanksgiving is all about of course). Just be wary of rumour mongers and innuendos – don’t fall victim to petty gossip. Shut it down as soon as you can or choose to ignore it altogether.

Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)
The Sun, Venus and Saturn are all making plans that will allow you to enjoy yourself this month – mostly guilt free by the way. This means that it’s time for you to work on your wishlist. Where do you want to go, and with whom do you want to go with? October is definitely a month for you to have fun and an adventure or two. Even if you don’t have a lot of extra cash lying around, you and your lover or friend can always check into an AirBnb for a long weekend.
Venus the planet of relationships retrograding in your 12th house of past karma and self-renewal October 5 – November 16 could mean that for some of you, issues with people from the past come up and aren’t so easy to deal with. Being a fire sign ruled by happy-go-lucky Jupiter, you tend to avoid confrontation if at all possible. However with a New Moon October 8 and communicator/clear thinking Mercury both in your 11th house of hopes, wishes and friendship stirring up issues as well, mid-October looks like being the perfect time for you to finally sit down and go through any and all concerns you and the people around you have. There’s always going to be something isn’t there? Remember timing and tone is everything.
Joint finances and shared resources will be slightly tricky to handle around the 5th, when Venus stops in her tracks to go retrograde. This could mean that a financial issue you’ve been trying to avoid suddenly refuses to go away or be ignored any longer. In which case, it might be best for you to face facts and deal with the ways things are. If you need to speak to someone who knows their way around the financial track, try to set up an appointment with them mid-month.
Your best October days are: 6, 12, 24 & 27
Your challenging October days are: 2, 10, 17 & 31
Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)
A wonderfully earthly trine involving the Sun, Jupiter and Pluto on the 11th will make it possible for you to have positive, successful meetings with authority figures this month. If you’re up for a promotion or its something you have been hoping for, this is the perfect astro climate to go after what it is you want. It’s also a good time to set up important meetings with those that could very well steer your future professionally and otherwise Sagittarius.
Fiery Mars storms off into your communication oriented 3rd house of communication on the 10th, all done up in rebellious, impetuous Aquarius. You’re known for speaking your mind and being able to ask for whatever it is you want without feeling embarrassed or ashamed and this will come in very handy at this time. Astrologically it’s the perfect time for you to let loose and let your opinion and thoughts known – whether people want to hear them or not! Luckily for you, the people around you will be like minded and probably more than half will agree with you and be on your side. So you don’t have to let loose too much Sags!
The 11th & 12th are perfect days for pretty much any kind of social soiree, even if you aren’t exactly feeling like being the ‘belle of the ball’. This doesn’t mean that you won’t attract attention – only that when you do, you won’t feel the need to go overboard and make a show of yourself or whatever cause it is you are working on. However if you do feel as if you’ve done a really good job at something, feel free to accept admiration and take a discreet bow!
Your Lucky September days: 7, 11, 15 & 24
Your not so Lucky September days: 6, 19, 22 & 30
Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)
An early bird matchup between energetic Mars and surprise planet Uranus around the 1st could have you pushing back against someone you always feel is in your way or trying to see how far they can push you. Try to deal with it as calmly and easily as possible, as with communicator Mercury out of phase through the 19th, now is not the time to mince words or try to get back at someone. When others go low you go high…allowing you to come out of the drama smelling like roses!
Seeing as you’re not known for being one of the most conservative signs when it comes to saving money for the proverbial rainy day, you need to be extra careful this month when it comes to pulling out the plastic and buying things you really don’t need and can’t really afford. Around the 9th or 10th a Venus-Saturn square will make it very necessary for you to tighten your money belt – even if temporarily. You might even learn how to live more frugally in the future and not be so quick to treat other people when out to dinner etc.
Mercury, the planet of clear thinking and communication remains out of phase in your fellow fire sign of Leo through August 19. Murphy’s Law of ‘whatever can go wrong will go wrong’ is in full effect and in your higher education zone could make things tricky workwise. If possible schedule any important business matters or job interviews for later in the month – well after the 19th. The 24th & 25th are particularly good days with the heavens hosting a very stabilizing Grand Earth Trine – the perfect astrological ingredients for material success. A coworker or two might even call on you for support and help around these dates. As long as you don’t try to start anything new whilst Mercury is out of phase and wait it out (not easy for you fiery Sags), everything will go according to plan.
Your most rewarding August days: 3, 20, 25 & 28
Your most unrewarding August days: 7, 14, 16 & 18
Sagittarius (November 23 – November 21)
The lure of travelling and exploring new places will be stronger than ever this month with the Sun, Mercury and Venus all passing through your ninth house of far off loved ones and long distance adventures. It will be easy for you to see how you might just be in the mood to ditch your daily schedule and pursue something a lot more exciting. For those of you ‘chained to your desk however’ it might not be so simple. You are definitely in the mood for something exotic this month – even if that means exotic food or clothing!
Venus the Goddess of love and money slides into your 10th house of career and ambition on the 9th and you need to take advantage of her presence by asking for that pay raise, proving yourself to your employers and applying for other jobs if the response you’re looking for isn’t forthcoming. Get your resume up to date and get on Linked In and see what’s available.
Moderation is the key around the 22nd, so don’t get crazy and blow all the good work you’ve done. As much as you love action and adventure you can learn to take it easy and take things as they come Sags.
Communicator Mercury will go out of phase on the 25th, just as the Sun gets into it with shocking Uranus and impulsive Mars. This could be one of those special days for you Sagittarius. Regardless of what you feel your duties are, if your intuition is telling you that making this trip or spending time with a certain someone isn’t worth your time, listen up. Pay attention to your inner voice and avoid potentially volatile situations as much as possible.
Your lucky days in July:5, 21, 22, & 23
Your unlucky days in July:2, 12, 16 & 25
The first weekend of June will be a good one Sagittarius, so make sure you are surrounded by fun friends and the people you love. 4 planets will get together putting you in the mood for a fun time – maybe a spontaneous outing. The Sun and Mercury in Gemini along with a New Moon in Gemini on the 13th and energetic Mars in Aquarius, your 9th house of spirituality and higher education all get together to ensure that June is one of the best months of 2018 for you.
Later in the month, once the Sun has moved into Cancer along with Mercury the communicator they will pass through your 8th house of shared resources this month Sagittarius. This will encourage you to sit down with your other half/business partners and anyone you’re associated with financially and get things sorted out about what’s yours and what’s theirs and what belongs to both of you or all of you. Try not to sign anything important around the 18th or 19th – hold off until later in the month if you possibly can.
Fiery Mars will be in impulsive Aquarius through the 26th before going out of phase in your communication and conversations zone this month. The good news is that you will finally be able to let loose with whatever you’ve been holding back – in a very big, cleansing way – so you are about to shed some spiritual and mental weight so to speak.
Your best days:2, 3, 21 & 22
Your worst days:5, 7, 8 & 11
Last Month’s Horoscope for Sagittarius
Mars the planet of hard work and dedication spends the first half of May in your second house of financial matters until the 15th and then moves into your communication zone, where he goes in and out of retrograde mode though November. Mars in your 2nd house means that you should probably expect to be putting in a whole lot of overtime to achieve your short-term goals. On the 15th a New Moon in Taurus could very well provide you with an introduction to some with experience in your field of expertise who will be able to advise you and even help you out in a big way.
Venus in Gemini, your one on one relationship zone is always a good thing for you – as it helps you smooth over any rough edges you may be having with your partner/and or a good friend. However with Venus getting into an uncomfortable aspect with Saturn on May 1st, you may have to have a ‘chat’ about financial issues which won’t be fun. Your mission is to keep your mind open to all possibilities, but not make any final decisions until the 4th if you have to make a quick decision or the 18th if you have some breathing room.
May looks like being a rather contentious month for many of you and you could find yourselves in all sorts of disputes and arguments over the silliest things. It’s important that you don’t go overboard and be too theatrical (as in your nature to be) Sagittarius. Try to keep everything on an even keel.
BEST DAYS: 5, 16, 27 & 30
