Diana's Monthly Sagittarius Forecast for July 2016
Until the 22nd is a gear-shifting phase, but you‘ll probably be feeling your way forwards intuitively and sounding things out as you go. You may have to be more conscious of another’s side of things. You may also be weighing up what another’s side of things is in a financial, legal or moral sense. You could be musing over some deeper questions, but answers will come more through intuition than the intellect. Transition will occur when, through mutual action with, or challenge from another, your value structure (and instinct) tells you what is the right thing to do.
Until the 14th Mercury is in your opposite sign. Communications – personal or professional, in close interactions and collaborations are highlighted and you’ll probably be sharing ideas and connecting with someone’s slant on things and even if you disagree, at least it helps you clarify your own thinking. You may be in relationship with someone whose guidance or information is valuable. Or you yourself may be more looked upon as the information-giver, go-between, or guide.
From the 14th discussions, ideas and research tend to be strategic and could be revealing as you drill down to fundamentals and suss things out. At times, communications could become more involved, intense, or confidential. Your thinking could focus on sensitive issues like the joint financial situation or revolve around property or possessions belonging to or shared with another. There may be more paperwork or some rethinking related to an agreement or contract. At this time, some of you may be giving confidential advice and perhaps ‘sensing’ more than thinking as your gut knowing will be stronger.
It may be that you feel quite passionate about something or someone and feelings go deep. Or, on the flip side, it’s probably easier for someone to push your buttons. Just trust your deeper instincts, stay away from ego, and try to avoid knee-jerk reactions. Get to the basics within the current conditions.
Until the 12th Venus is in a place of emotional depth and some things can touch your feelings deeply, or you can move others – great for the romantics and artists among you but also regarding material resources which come through another. Formally or informally things may become more intimate or ’involved’. Venus here could also manifest as a relationship helping you out materially or supporting you emotionally in major or minor ways. So, a good time to acquire and use resources to benefit your joint material interests with others. Negotiations could go in your favour and there could be deeper, more rewarding bonds with another. Some of you may feel like shifting into more commitment in a material or emotional sense – depending on your natal chart and on your own ability to create what you want. Also, a relationship could revolve around a shared space, possessions or property but things can be ironed out to mutual advantage.
BREATH OF FRESH AIR
From the 12th Venus encourages warmer more supportive relationships with those from far away, or from a different cultural background. Travel with a partner is possible or someone expands your thinking with their experience or background. You are more likely to connect with others who have a knowledge or expertise which helps you add pieces of the puzzle. This could be financially advantageous. You yourself may be valued or admired for your knowledge, know-how or guidance and this may be a good time for putting the word out on to a wider stage about something and it could prove to be lucrative. Publications or educational establishments could be highlighted and you and someone may be on a bit of a learning curve together. A teacher or someone with wisdom could be helpful, or, through their contribution and support you ultimately get a better understanding or material reward for your joint efforts.
THE COMMON GOOD
Mars is in a more inward and private area suggesting things are busier behind the scenes or in a separate bubble with others. This is a dynamic energy and so you may be making yourself available for something bigger than you are. But that’s alright for this is a karmic house which is about selflessness. This is a time for nurture, healing and support either from you or for you.
This Mars transit will encourage a more self-reflective mood where you will be mulling things over whilst in the midst of other activities. Mars here can dip the vitality and you should be conscious of who/where/what is good for you and who/where/what is not. You may even be feeling somewhat downbeat and talk yourself out of something which could ultimately be good. But somehow there are not enough facts to make a definite decision. Follow your inner light.
This transit will also stimulate the unconscious and your imagination as well as your ability to manifest what you want and shape things from backstage. You may feel happier if you take more time out for yourself to nurture or heal and it’s advisable to work alone whenever you can. Emotions and some frustrations may be nearer the surface and knee jerk reactions are more likely so this is something you may catch yourself doing. Those who take this onboard may just avoid falling down those old emotional holes in the road.
Because your energies are turned inwards, you are more easily influenced and can get sucked into other people’s stuff, their moods and opinions, so just be more self-protective at this time. Pay attention to dreams, visions, omens and coincidences. Mars here will also underpin practices like intuitive or imaginative thinking and healing practices. Or indeed anything which takes you out of yourself so you sustain the energy and enthusiasm you need to be of service where necessary.
A FRESH PERSPECTIVE
New potentials are in the wind from the 22nd. The Sun is in a more outgoing, expansive area tending to raise the spirits as you see fresh possibilities outside of the routine box. Time to make plans or launch into projects. Some of you may have itchy feet, and with the vibrations increasing opportunities to escape the daily grind, this is a good time to get out and about more and try new things.
Saturn has returned to your sign after a gap of about 29-30yrs. Until late 2017, scenarios and conditions around you will gradually help you learn how best to take your responsibilities to yourself, your talents, your well-being, your hopes and dreams more seriously and to concentrate your energies more purposefully onto specific targets which gradually build new structures for the future.
Sometimes through adversity, you will steadily build the new routines outside and inside which will form the armature of that better, more comfortable life. Sagittarians born 30th November-3rd December or with 9-12 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
(The current Saturn/Neptune transit brings uncertainty into this area and harder work to clarify things to get organized and go forward in a confident manner. There are deep changes going on within the core of your being. Family may need extra support or something going on in the locality may mean you have to put aside personal preferences and go with the flow. On the one hand you can be idealistic about the home base or family and hold an almost utopian vision of how you would like it to be, but with Saturn in the mix you must wake up to the realities of the situation and be practical with that vision. Figure out the mechanics of how it can be realized in the face of a little confusion or difficulty during the times when Saturn is close by degree to a planet or important point).
NEW DOORS OPENING
Jupiter is in your area of career and overall life direction until next September. This means more doors swinging open, but not all will be leading to your highest good or worldly success, and you could be puzzling over which is the best way to go. It’s more likely you could gain more recognition and be learning new things professionally. By the end of the transit you should feel more established in your field or the die is cast regarding your general direction and that will be the time when you can identify more clearly with what you do for a living or your worldly responsibilities. Early Sagittarians or Sagittarians born 7th-14th December or with from 16-23 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
During this long transit of Neptune through your home area you may have to sacrifice your own style or your preferred plan regarding a space or property or neighbourhood in order to serve a common good. And, as long as you protect your privacy and have integrated your own wishes, regarding family members, community or tribe, all will be well.
Saggies born 4th-9th December or with 13-18 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this month.
