August 2019

Of all the signs you are the ones that have every right to feel hard done by, let down by what have not only been the toughest two months of 2019 but some of the toughest months for you personally for a long time. Yet I doubt that this is how you are feeling at all and I suspect you are more likely to feel not only empowered but much freer and lighter. A lot of the load you have been carrying is either gone or considerably lighter. For many of your cosmic mates, there is no interest or need to look back but for you this is different. For with Saturn in his last full month of his last full retrograde phase in Capricorn for another three decades, this is what you are supposed to be doing. What made the last two months so tough is that a parade of planets moved through your opposing sign Cancer and ruler of your relationship sector at the same time and within a five month period, they all moved into opposition with both Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. A solar eclipse in Cancer and a lunar eclipse in Capricorn two weeks later only added to last month's intensity. What you may have seen or felt is wave after wave of personal and/or relationship tension. Yet something else was going on and this has been the game changer. With the North Node in Cancer and the South Node in Capricorn, even without Saturn and Pluto in retrograde motion, this was a clash between new growth and what you are stubbornly holding onto. With Jupiter returning to Capricorn in early December, there are major new beginnings ahead, with the planets barging their way through Cancer, in essence, the wrecking crew, clearing a path for that future growth. Those same planets completely turn things around this month and especially once they start returning to an adventurous part of your chart on 18th August. Everything is set to flow more smoothly, feel lighter and more optimistic this month, not despite what you've been through but because what you have been through.


Week beginning Monday 19th of August 2019

If life started to feel easier and like there was less pressure last week then you can expect that to increase this week. The drop in pressure began when Mercury left Cancer, your opposing sign and ruler of your relationship sector early last week. However, an increase in confidence is due to the increase in planetary activity in your fellow Earth signs. Mars returned to fellow Earth sign Virgo over the weekend, also the most adventurous part of your chart. By the time Venus joins Mars there on Wednesday, he will already be fuelling a passion for adventure. Just hours before Venus' return the Moon will return to the third Earth sign Taurus, ruler of the most playful part of your chart. With Uranus in his first full week in retrograde motion there, this stacks the most friendly areas of your chart with planets that can not only make life easier and boost your confidence but also make life a lot more exciting.


Friday 23rd of August 2019

To have the Moon in a playful part of your chart during Mars and Venus' early days in an adventurous part of your chart and as the Sun prepares to turn today, is a real advantage. Yet this first visit since Uranus turned retrograde in this fun, playful, romantic and creative is also a chance to check and to get a better feel for the doors that are now open to the past, second chances and an opportunity for a do over. With even more planets returning to an adventurous part of your chart over the coming days, life can no longer be all work and no play.

About Capricorn

Information about your birth sign

Capricorns have a great sense of purpose and faith in their own ability because they are so mentally strong. They set out to accomplish things and are determined to succeed one way or another, making them natural executives and managers. They can sometimes lack confidence and try to hide it as they see insecurity and fear as a weakness, sometimes making it hard for others to get close to them.

Capricorn ruled by Saturn is serious and can appear cold, hard and stern. They are usually known as figures of authority and are connected with rules and regulations. They are probably the most stable sign of the zodiac and quickly become the backbone of the company they are working for. However, many Capricorns run their own business as they can take control in a naturally cool and calm manner. They don't let you get away with things very lightly and believe in hard work. Although they have a serious demeanor they are actually extremely sensitive and genuinely care for other people. They are also skeptical and certainly not prone to gullibility. Capricorns are full of wisdom and make great parents, keeping things organized and ticking over smoothly. You can always rely on a Capricorn.

Capricorn is ruled by the tenth house which is connected to work and publishing.
