Capricorn: Dec. 22-Jan. 21): As your monthly astrology horoscope begins Capricorn, the month starts off with a 1st quarter Moon in the sign of Libra ruler of wealth, relationships, marriage and partnerships, your solar 10th house of career, social status, authority figures, older men, success, fame and fortune. The Lunar energy is culminating and intensifying to this month’s Full Moon, a super Moon in Aquarius your solar 2nd house of money, luxuries, wealth and self-esteem. So called because it’s the closest Full Moon to our earth this year. This has us focused on who is getting along and who is not getting along with each other. August starts off intensely and we need a break, a moment to lavish ourselves, catch our breaths, and indulge a little bit as this month starts with a flurry of aspects. The month of August has everyone getting used to a new set of planets, Jupiter in Leo, your solar 8th house of joint finances, big deals, scandals, intimacy, power, and intrigue, and Mars the co-ruler of the 8th house in Scorpio your solar 11th house of sudden surprises, the occult, reversals, friends, and ex-lovers. You could be feeling a little out of sorts initially. Secrets could be revealed too. What was up goes down in August and what and who was down comes up. That typically means that there is something we’re focused on, or talking about for a few days.
Mercury the planet of communication is moving quickly through the sign of Leo for only about 2 weeks, where the planet of luck and expansion, Jupiter is now transiting. This increases your self-confidence, ambitions, makes you more determined because of the fixed nature of the sign of Leo, and also more kind and magnanimous. It’s about having fun, staying positive and maybe indulging yourself. The planet Mercury rules communications or news and in Leo relates to social activities, self-confident, sometimes arrogance, putting on airs or putting on shows, children, education, fortunate matters conjoins Jupiter in Leo education, children, amusement, or foreign matters.
Mars is in the sign of Scorpio, your solar 11th house of sudden surprises, the occult, reversals, friends, ex-lovers, the strange, VIPs, helpful people, groups, and networking. Mars will re-trace Saturn’s footsteps through Oct. 4th and then pass Saturn’s retrograde degree and perhaps instigates some problems or begins new activities, reigniting old activities that you need to integrate into your lives. Sometimes Mars wants to even the score, especially in the sign of Scorpio. Perhaps things will make more sense, as we get a better understanding and perhaps secrets will come out that we were unaware of before. Scorpio also relates to secrets and Mars is clumsy with secrets!
It’s easy to get down with Mars and Saturn in Scorpio your solar 11th house of sudden surprises, the occult, reversals, friends, ex-lovers, the strange, VIPs, helpful people, groups, and networking; especially since the 11th house is ruled by Uranus ruler of high hopes and dark fears. It’s easy to enter that dark Scorpio place called hell. By now, you’ve felt it; that overwhelming feeling of doom and gloom. That woe is me feeling, when you’ve asked yourself if this all there is to life? Saturn in Scorpio is half way through its transit through Scorpio and Jupiter is beginning its transit in Leo, along with the Sun and Mercury. By now you know that you have to pick yourself up out of the depths of despair occasionally, and work on your self-confidence or lack of self-confidence. Of course, there will be those times when the grim reaper whispers nonsense in your ear, but on the other hand so will those fun loving optimistic planets in Leo. It’s up to you who you chose to listen to. Oh, there will be power struggles Capricorn who puts on his or her Sherlock Holmes cap this month.
Venus in Cancer your solar 7th house of personal relationships, partners, best friends, and of course marriage, ruler of home, home finances, moving, security, family and property matters trines Saturn in Scorpio 16° and a reconnection could become permanent this month. Saturn in Scorpio, which also rules finances, rebuilding is still retracing the same degrees from the last month. Perhaps things get easier with family relationships or we just let things go easier, it’s a more self-indulgent and heaven forbid lazy time. It’s time to get back on track financially, refinance or move. Using your intuition is key to your success now. Venus in Cancer trines Chiron in Pisces and intuition and compassion combine and we’re more nurturing and caring. It’s about your personal life now.
Mars is in the sign of Scorpio, which is active, wants to even the score, is forceful, stands up for the underdog, rules finances, power, death, destruction, rebuilding, repairing and financial issues. The interesting thing to note is that Mars is repeating the entire transit so far of Saturn in Scorpio but will lead us into new degrees where Saturn will spend the rest of this year and part of next year. You don’t have to worry about that though until September.
On Aug.03 the Sun in Leo your 8th house of power, loyalty and obstacles, inconjuncts Pluto RX in Capricorn 11° your 1st house of taking action, along with Mercury in Leo which squares Mars in Scorpio ruler of death, destruction and rebuilding and repairing this is typical of bad weather. The Sun, and Pluto are both power players they Sun is self-confident in Leo and Pluto is powerful in Capricorn, again there’s nothing new here since Pluto is retrograde. Things are sticky, and there’s a sticky situation you have to clean up and sort through and it could cost money.
Mercury the ruler of communications and ruler of your 6th house of drama, work, and day to day activities, in Leo inconjuncts Pluto RX in Capricorn 11° ruler of earthquakes, and inconjuncts Neptune RX in Pisces ruler of the oceans to form and a Yod or Finger of God aspect. Indicting lots of self-confidence and courage is needed in the face of whatever is threatening or causing irrational fears. Capricorn is strong and capable and rises to any occasion now. A lover or child is in need and you have a chance to play the hero or heroine.
Now a flurry of inconjuncts starts off the month, indicating a big change in who holds the cards and who has the power. The inconjunct relates to things beyond our control, circumstances and events, but also changes things forever.
On Aug.10 the Full Moon in Aquarius 18°02’ your solar 2nd house of money, comfort, luxuries and wealth could bring a sudden and unexpected windfall or the opposite depending on your chart. It is this year’s brightest Super Moon against the back drop of the Perseid Meteor Shower it should be spectacular if it’s visible in your area. You will want to check your free Natal Birth Chart for planets, asteroids, and house cusps between 17°-19° degrees to see how the Super Full Moon influences you. All Full Moons are super charged with emotions and hold the possibility of fated romance in them so think positively and you too can gain.
As the planet of love, wealth and marriage, Venus enters Leo your solar 8th house of love affairs, joint finances, big deals, scandals, intimacy, power, challenges and intrigue. There can be possessiveness in your life or the overcoming of romantic struggles.
The planet of communications Mercury enters Virgo your solar 9th house of travel, people at a distance, religion, education and marketing and it pays to know the rules and how to navigate any situation. An opportunity that requires a contract could come your way.
As the Sun enters Virgo your solar 9th house of travel, publishing, people at a distance, religion, education, new experiences, and marketing; where the Sun shines so you. You may have all the answers for everyone who seeks you out.
Mars in Scorpio inconjunct Uranus RX in Aries 16° and since Mars rules Aries someone could push you the wrong way or you could push someone else and test your limitations with someone. An unexpected household expense could come your way, watch for storms and accidents around the home.
On Aug.25 The New Moon Virgo 2°19’ suggests we’re more down to earth focused and intent on getting this right.
