Capricorn: Dec. 22-Jan. 21): As your astrology horoscope month begins Capricorn, it starts with a New Moon cycle in the sign of Leo which starts a new karmic cycle for Capricorn who overcomes obstacles, demands respect and gets what is owed, is courageous and begins a new close intimate relationship. The New Moon gives you plenty of romantic spark, fun, enthusiasm towards finances, joint monies, big money plans, and sexiness. It favors romance, removing things from your life, taking chances, overcoming doubt, making lots of money, reversing negative emotions and children’s activities. It can bring a new source of income too. There’s liveliness and more willingness to do things, you could be interested in meeting new people and having more fun. Which is good. The New Moon is within a few degrees of our retrograde Saturn and this should give you a little heads up, that although there is an undercurrent of fear, distrust, dishonesty, secrecy, or losses there is a glimmer of good fortune and good luck since the Sun is in Leo ruler of courage and dominance. This month the Moon begins new in the sign of Leo and culminates in the opposite sign of Aquarius.
The planet Saturn your ruling planet which resumes direct motion on Aug. 13 at 9° in the sign of the archer Sagittarius your solar 12th house of completions, debts, karma, healing, secrets, and out of the way places and overcoming fear (3rd pass from Dec. 20th) is poised to go back over all the degrees he’s passed through this year until Nov. 19th when he finally moves into new degrees and new territory. This gives you a third chance to fix things with regards to where Saturn is transiting and what aspects he is making in your chart. This may be where you want or need more freedom, where you have to expand or plan ahead better, or where you need to focus on completing what you start. How the planet Saturn acts also depends on your age. Older Capricorns deal with Saturn easily enjoying how time works for them. Younger people tend to be more impatient by nature and could resist the patience and discipline Saturn demands.
So in August you will be fixing, resolving, or sorting out a few things or going over a few things. One of those things is wherever the planet Uranus RX in Aries is transiting in your chart and where you have been too impulsive, reckless or cold and detached and the other is where Saturn is transiting. These two planets are very important in August. Uranus may have caused you to be impulsive and overly emotional with regards to family, property and your home. Uranus pushed you out of the nest when you weren’t looking and you had to make do. It scattered your family and left you alone. Saturn in Sagittarius has you mastering debt. That can be karmic debt or financial debt.
On Aug. 7th the planet of communications Mercury in Virgo opposes the planet Neptune RX in Pisces at 11° your solar sector of communications, thinking and siblings a Mercury ruled zone (as always check your natal birth chart when you see these degrees for planets, asteroids and house cusps) which is an indication about what the next or 3rd and final Saturn-Neptune square on Sept. 10th is all about, or will bring to your attention again. There can be an injustice you have to overcome but maybe you need help to do so. Travel, writing learning, and publishing are all favored but finding the time is difficult. Capricorn might play hooky and just drive somewhere in their cars. Remember, the planet Mercury is the communications planet, he’s telling you something. He’s saying “Uh oh watch out or pay attention”. Avoid being too gullible or fearful, or going along with something or someone just because it’s fun. There’s a tendency to avoid things or be evasive, and make excuses under this aspect. This is a confusing energy to say the least and indicates slights of hand, possible deception, evasiveness or even where you should be kinder. In it’s very worst it’s getting carried away with yourself or sense of importance. You can’t really believe anything you hear. The 1st Saturn-Neptune square occurred on Dec. 26th, 2015, the 2nd on occurred on June 17th and the 3rd on will occur on Sept. 10th. This suggests something is building up to the 3rd Saturn-Neptune square on Sept. 10th, and why we can’t ignore August’s underlying transits. Make lists and check them twice.
As Mercury enters its’ shadow period we will begin to connect the dots and put things together right through the national election on Nov. 4th. When Mercury is direct things speed up, and go too fast, so a slowdown or retrograde is necessary.
On Aug. 12th -13th Beware as the planet of over the top actions, exaggerations, religion, freedom, and all things done in a big way over the top way, Jupiter in Virgo (major health outbreak, the work place, gym, or your neighborhood) inconjuncts the planet that rules youth, rebellion, and all things sudden and unexpected Uranus RX in Aries 24°. A strong influence in Virgo stimulates your desire for writing, learning and travel. It can bring minor legal filings and lots of deadlines.
As your ruler the planet Saturn resumes direct motion at 9° Sagittarius (3rd pass from Dec. 20th) we get another chance to get it right. So many people born in the 60’s have Uranus and Pluto in Virgo, which is square the sign of moving upwards and onwards Sagittarius so this is an important moment. As Saturn goes direct it square the New Moon Solar Eclipse degree of Sept. 1st, which in turn influences events through Nov. 17th. Capricorn has a vivid imagination and is creative with Saturn in Sagittarius. Focus and controlling your restlessness is an issue. You can be interested in spiritual or religious pursuits.
As the planet Venus in Virgo squares Saturn at 9°, Venus rules, love, money, wealth and beauty. It rules the woman, the feminine in a relationship, the wife and marriage. You could find yourself on a road trip and longing to be home. As much as you like to travel you are a homebody at heart. You could miss someone at a distance.
As Venus in Virgo opposes Neptune RX in Pisces at 11° in your 3rd house of communications, thinking, siblings and swaying others opinions you have interests that you might not feel comfortable sharing with others. Nothing bad, it’s just you are a little shy with all the criticism your Suns sign constantly receives.
When the Sun in Leo trines Uranus RX Retrograde in Aries 24° a past opportunity or advantage or lucky event
As the planet Venus in Virgo trines Pluto RX in Capricorn at 15° your Sun sign you can make things happen and move in a new direction. Taking your work, job or career in a new direction, streamlining your daily routine and being productive is favored.
During the Full Moon in Aquarius at 25°53’ in your solar sector of money, wealth, gifts, and comfort can bring a sudden windfall, something free or the desire to pamper yourself. As the Moon cycle culminates and emotions are ignited you’ll want to check your natal birth chart for planets, asteroids and house cusps at 25°-26°
When the communications planet Mercury in Virgo inconjuncts Uranus RX in Aries 24° there’s something messy to clean up, an epidemic perhaps, or if you have been procrastinating about fixing something, changing your tires, or charging your cell phone, too late! Due to Mercury’s retrograde at month’s end we’ll go through all these say Mercury transits again in September. Since Uranus is in your 4th house of home, family and monthly expenses there can be an expense to pay, maybe a legal filing fee or a school fee to pay for.
As the planet Mercury in Virgo conjoins Jupiter in Virgo at 26° good fortune and good news comes when you read the fine print, dig for details and try your best. This duo has you moving in new directions with a desire to explore and learn. You can book a trip, take a class or pass an exam.
As the Sun enters Virgo (12:38 pm EDT) it solarizes and empowers your 9th house of learning, legalities, travel and new experiences.
The planet Mars is repeating for the 3rd and final time it’s degrees in the sign of freedom or the sign of the archer as Mars in Sagittarius conjoins Saturn in Sagittarius at 9°, (the New Moon Solar Eclipse degree of Sept. 1st, which in turn influences events through Nov. 17th). This dynamic duo has had you waiting for an entire year for something new. Looking back, you probably notice that things around you are new. A positive attitude works since there’s a tendency to feel watched or get paranoid and that can make some of you cranky. You have desire to help and to be kind now too. Work through your angst, irrational fears and phobias. It’s a good time for healing.
A major breakthrough comes. The need for steadfast determination and hard work is before you. This is not the time to throw in the towel or give up!
As Mars in Sagittarius squares Neptune RX in Pisces at 10° in your 3rd house of communications deception is at hand. If he says he’s divorced check it out. This is the typical bad boy aspect in romance. Or the sign that a playboy or player is at work. It rules drugs or drug abuse and deception in romance. Mars in Sagittarius is all about freedom and acts almost like Uranus in Aries. Be careful to read everything you sign.
The ruler of women or the female counterpart in a relationship, the wife, the sister in your family, marriage, wealth and beauty Venus in Virgo conjoins the plane of goodwill, protection and abundance Jupiter in Virgo at 27° in your 9th house of travel, education, spirituality, new experiences and lots of short trips. This of course is a favorable aspect for relationships. It can mean that many people while tired of dating want to settle down and finally be secure.
It’s always going to be about togetherness, beauty, wealth, getting along and superficial niceties when the planet Venus enters her own sign, Libra. This brings Venus features, qualities, and powers to your career, profession, fame and success sector.
The month ends with the planet of communications, thinking, planning and news Mercury RX going retrograde in the mutable (adaptable) sign of Virgo at 28° until Sept. 22nd at 14°. It’s a time for travel, short trips, legal matters and learning. Your ability to fix things, to get to the details, to keep to your schedule or to understand things is changed. This is where you might not have the facts and you might not have the right tools to fix things. There’s a tendency to procrastinate and to put things off too. You’ll want to check your natal birth chart for planets, asteroids and house cusps at 14°-28°. While you might not fully understand how all this astrology comes together you might notice that a certain degree in your chart when triggered produced an event or feeling.
So check your natal birth chart and when you see these degrees for planets, asteroids and house cusps that might match up with your very own personal natal birth chart you might not fully understand how it comes together. That’s the work of many years of studying astrology and the work of a professional astrologer not a kitchen table astrologer! However, you might notice that a certain degree in your chart that when triggered produced an event or feeling and that’s what’s important!
