Capricorn August 2017 Monthly Horoscope
On August 25th, Venus enters fire sign Leo, and you can enjoy focusing on serious matters, getting to the core of people and situations, doing research, and gaining more understanding. In love, you can focus on intimate connections, and if single, you may only want someone serious and intense, while if attached, you can work to grow closer emotionally.
On August 3rd, Uranus turns retrograde (appears to move backward) in fire sign Aries, and over the coming months, you may struggle with changes at home or with family that impact you emotionally, and you need to work to be more emotionally flexible so you’re not feeling so restless and unstable.
On August 25th, Saturn, your ruler, ends his retrograde in fire sign Sagittarius, the sign before yours, and over the last few months, you may have struggled with feeling restricted and limited by your baggage, issues from the past, or your subconscious mind, but now that the retrograde is ending, you can find more freedom again. With Saturn being your ruler, you likely also feel off in a subtle way over the last few months, and can start to feel more like yourself again.
August brings with it a Mercury retrograde starting August 12th in fellow earth sign Virgo. A planet is called retrograde when it appears to be moving backward; it isn’t actually moving backward, it only looks that way from our view here on Earth. Retrogrades can throw things off, and with this retrograde, you can struggle with having the amount of space and freedom you want and need, either having too much or too little. You may lack opportunities to expand, explore, and have new experiences, and this can make you rebel. You can question your beliefs, or stick to them so strongly that you’re a little preachy. This can be a good time for going back to school, learning something again, or travelling somewhere you’ve been before. The Sun enters Virgo on August 22nd while Mercury is retrograde in Virgo, and brings attention what we need to see to make things better during the retrograde.Mercury is retrograde in Virgo until August 31st, and goes back into Leo, and you may struggle with deeply-held issues, are overly serious and pessimistic, or lack perspective. Mercury retrogrades in Leo for the first week of September, and we can start getting back to normal mid-September.
August also brings the second set of eclipses for 2017. Eclipses are similar to new and full moons, but amplified, impacting for up to six months before and after. Lunar eclipses are similar to full moons, and solar eclipses are similar to new moons. On August 7th, a lunar eclipse occurs in air sign Aquarius, the sign after yours, and you can settle financial issues, reap rewards for smart financial decisions, or work to bring more security in your life. If you feel more secure, you can feel more confident, and you may need to work on having greater stability, so you can focus on chaotic areas of life and work on calming things down. You can be more easily hurt by the words of others though, so try not to take what they say too much to heart. On August 21st, a solar eclipse occurs in Leo, and you can pursue mutually beneficial projects and ventures, enter into a financial or business partnership, or work on serious issues. You can dig deeper into subjects and people, and you can focus on starting a major transformation of yourself or your life that can take some time, but ultimately leads to bigger and better things down the road.
