August Monthly Horoscope - Capricorn


Dear Capricorn, you might encounter some sudden obstacles or frustrations on the 1st when it comes to finances, personal values or abilities. Avoid aggressively asserting your value through your possessions or talents- you can find better ways to feel confident and to have fun. Some financial changes might be due, but they don’t have to be disruptive. Venus entering your 12th house on the 6th marks a great time to pour your heart into your career. However, Venus squares Saturn (the 9th) and Pluto (the 26th) this monththis month, there might be tensions or blockages at work or issues revolving around power, control or inhibition. Maybe your personal trials aren’t helping you come across as the friendliest person right now; however, Venus gives you the chance to enhance your popularity. No matter the existing tensions, Libra advises you to be amiable, cooperative and to keep your calm at work. On the 7th, Uranus retrogrades in your 5th house, marking the start of a 6-month period where you might have sudden shifts in your attitudes towards romance, kids, creativity and fun. The Leo Solar Eclipse on the 11th shakes up your life when it comes to shared resources, sexuality, fears or occultism. Deep emotions and impulses are stirred and amplified, possibly tempting you to project your shadow on others. If you manage to become aware of your subconscious material and to assess situations realistically, this Eclipse can help you become more confident in dealing with your impulses and in managing shared resources (your relationship’s shared resources or taxes, debts). Keep your dignity at all times. Mars retrograding in your sign on the 12th might bring up issues linked to your self-image, your identity and your path in life, encouraging you one more time to reflect on what planning and taking responsibility mean for you in defining and presenting yourself to others.

On the 18th, the Venus-Mercury sextile shows a good time to improve a work relationship, especially if there’s been underlying tension. Mercury going direct on the 19th eases your house of shared resources, sexuality and deep impulses, removing blockages and maybe allowing some progress with the changes that were seeded on the Eclipse! On the 23rd, the Sun enters your 9th house, energizing you to expand your horizons through traveling, courses or spiritual practice. Especially with the Grand Earth Trine on the 25th, this is a great moment to invest in personal growth, in your pastime activities and in your physical body, all with the diligence and practicality that define you.

The Pisces Full Moon brings to a conclusion what has started this March in the areas of learning and communication. The best way to purify your mental plane right now, to think and to speak with intuitive understanding and compassion, is to put effort and to persevere in developing yourself, your hobbies and your life philosophy. How has this manifested for you since March? On the 27th, Mars goes direct- gone are the days of low energy, frustrations and blockages in your path, in the ways others see you and in your finances. Enjoy this relieving August end as your batteries get recharged to their full potential!
