KnowSagittarius Scope July 4 – 5

Sag, bring clarity to the reasons for doing what you do. The Moon is still in Virgo, inviting us to connect with our natural rhythms until Tuesday night when it shifts into Libra, bringing awareness to what it means to be in relationship with ourselves and the world around us. A shift in energy occurs on Tuesday, when Mars leaves its home sign and enters the slow moving, pleasure seeking sign of Taurus until August 20th. This moment is trying to connect you with change. This is no time to resist the shifts that are occurring in your life. Stop putting your energy into wanting to go back to a time when things were better. Open up to the ever changing waves that are here, and that don’t seem to be receding any time soon. Mercury also leaves its home sign to enter nurturing, safety seeking Cancer until July 19th. Activating communication, and bringing more movement and engagement into your intimacy and collaborations.


KnowSagittarius June ’22 Scope

Key Themes: beautiful connections, boundaries, safety, vulnerability, spiritual roots

Sagittarius, the month of June invites you to wear your heart and vibrant personality on your sleeve while opening yourself up to relationships and tuning into what helps you feel safe.

Since May 22nd, Mercury has been retrograding in earthy Taurus, reminding you of the importance of paying attention to the practical matters of life for health and peace of mind. On June 3rd, the Planet of Communication stations direct and on June 13th it will enter swift Gemini, your opposing sign, where it will activate Sagittarius’ sector of partnerships until July 14th. People who you’re close with may have important messages for you, so be open to receiving them by practicing the art of listening, Sagittarius.

On June 4th, Saturn, the Planet of Challenge, begins a 6-month retrograde period in Aquarius activating Sagittarius’ sector of communication and learning. Saturn retrograde compels you to re-explore the power of your mind and reconnect to your Inner Authority when it comes to your interactions and the information you consume (hint: boundaries and patience).

The Full Moon shines bright in your sign on June 14th at 7:52am, activating Sagittarius’ sector of personality and compelling you to wear your heart and vibrant identity on your sleeve. While it is in your nature to be constantly expanding and seeking your purpose in life, you have also been working on developing a beginner’s mind in your relationships. Yet, this Sag Full Moon forms a challenging square to Neptune, the Planet of Spirituality, reminding you that the answers are not always found externally in the next course, relationship or adventure, but also from within.

On June 21st, the Sun enters nurturing Cancer, activating Sagittarius’ sector of death, sex, and shared resources. Welcome to the Summer Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere, Sagittarius! Cancer season is ripe for retreating to the cauldron of your deep psyche and tending to your rough edges with healing water energy.

When Venus, the Planet of Love, enters Gemini from June 22nd through July 17th, it has the potential to foster beautiful connections. While you’re naturally attracted to foreign experiences, you may be surprised at the expansion and fun that follows when you approach your 1:1 relationships as if they were fresh.

The New Moon in Cancer on June 28th at 10:52pm concludes the month by activating Sagittarius’ sector of death, sex, and shared resources. While Jupiter and Mars in fiery Aries have been lighting up your sector of self-expression and pleasure, the Cancer New Moon asks you to courageously tune into what helps you feel safe so you can be vulnerable and open yourself up to the pleasure you’re worthy of receiving (instead of running away when things get too close or intense). Visualize what your life would look like if you felt emotionally secure and use the power of this New Moon portal to alchemize any barriers that are standing in your way.

On this same day, Neptune, the Planet of Spirituality, begins a 6-month retrograde period highlighting Sagittarius’ sector of home and family. Your mission with Neptune retrograde is to re-assess the ways in which you may be escaping in search of something greater and to reconnect to your spiritual roots.

About Sagittarius

Element: Fire

Mode: Mutable

Ruling Planets: Jupiter, the Planet of Luck & Abundance

Where Youll Find Them: Traveling the world, teaching at a university, learning belly dancing

What They Avoid: 9-5 jobs, following the established norms, being politically correct

Sagittarius, symbolized by the Archer half human, half horse is arguably the most positive and optimistic sign of the zodiac. When you think of a Sag, the bow and arrow pointed towards the sky comes to mind, and thats an adequate way of describing a Sagittarius: always reaching for greater heights, seeking to expand their horizons and reach for beyond. Sagittarius is the philosopher, the forward-thinker, the idealist and the philosopher of the zodiac. Sagittarius will lead to you viewing life, and yourself, from a different vantage point, and this is one of their strongest traits.

Professionally, Sagittariuswere born to teach and to learn. Even if they dont pursue higher education, they’ll be self-taught. Their desire to absorb knowledge is contagious, which is why they often make excellent educators, gurus, mentors, advisors, and counselors. Sagittarius is multi-talented and easily inspired. This can be a great combination, but it can also lead to them starting many projects that they dont always complete. Sag tends to have a short attention span, so they’re constantly in search of stimulation, adventure and action. They thrive when they can exert themselves in a physical way. They may be drawn to spending time outdoors, dancing, sports, and acting. 

As a friend, Sagittarius is able to seek out whats unique and interesting in anyone they meet. This makes them popular and influential, because they make friends with people from all sorts of backgrounds and cultures. Sagittarius has high ideals and could spend hours debating people and trying to get them to see things from their perspective. While they have a stubborn streak, Sag is definitely an open-minded sign, and theyll listen to the various opinions while remaining true to their own. Sag is extraverted for the most part, and can have quite the wild social life. They cant be tamed, and they definitely can’t be controlled. 

As lovers, Sag tends to press the pause button before letting their emotions be shown in an intimate relationship. Sag may feel more comfortable as friends or hook-up buddies at first, but this may be a self-protective way of not letting people see what makes them tick. Sag tends to keep things light-hearted for the longest amount of time possible. When they do fall in love, its as if they never saw it coming, and all of a sudden theyre head over heels in love. Some Sagges may appear to be commitment-phobic, and this can cause their partner(s) or love interests to worry about whether theyre in it for the long haul. The truth is that you never truly know. You have to wait and see. Sag lives in the present moment, and trusts what their instincts are telling them to do. If you love a Sag, celebrate their freedom.
