Go where change wants to take you

Relationships reflect the shift within

Do you get back what you put in?

Strange fascination, fascinating me
Ah changes are taking the pace I’m going through

Ch-ch-changes . . .

By now the classic David Bowie track must seem like your anthem thanks to Pluto’s long term stay in your sign. Next year it leaves briefly for your 2nd before turning back for a final visit then exiting for good. Along with the other long term transit of Uranus in your 5th, you have seen yourself evolve, outgrow certain things and you and your needs change. It is or should have been, a fascinating process and one which takes on fresh significance in August.

Love, money, searing hotness (that’s your temperature, Cappy not the weather!), and yes, change kick-start August for you with the meeting of Mars and Uranus in your 5th. Venus in its ruling 7th shines on both planets indicating positive developments even as Mercury heads into your 9th (4th) promising opportunity, offers and solutions. The 9th holds the best potential for changes in outer relationships which align with your own inner transformation as Venus opposes Pluto. If needed, you can take these even further on the 22nd.

Wellbeing and work dominate the month and we can say you are hitting the peak for these areas this month. What do you need to change up here, Cappy? Mars lands in your 6th on the 20th and will be set for an extra long stay in here owing to a retrograde which will occur in October. This means Mars will remain in here until 2023. Health receives a boost and you are able to simply get more done now. Just ensure you don’t burn out as you’re powerful but not invincible!

Whatever you’ve been putting off you’ll not only tackle but also set yourself up for permanent, energising change when it comes to anything from escaping that rut to charging up your day job or initiating a more healthy, active lifestyle.

Ruler Saturn is retrograde along with all the other outer planets except for Uranus which turns backwards on the 24th. You also have Mercury enter retroshadow in your 9th from the 21st. It continues forward on into your 10th from the 26th and will turn retroactive next month. But as the retro shade begins in your house of long distance travel, foreign affairs of all kinds and mass transportation, putting those retro rules in place early may simply be good contingency planning.

Before Mars shifts out of your 5th it is going to pose a question with your ruler around whether something continues to be worth your time and investment or if you need to focus in another direction around the 7th. Once Venus moves into your 8th from the 11th, money and those values will feature in a big way. Before the Sun’s arrival in your 9th on the 23rd, there may be a feeling of hard work or extra effort involved. This can be anything from your income to a key relationship. What you have to look at is your long term take out vs. your investment here.

You’ll know what the right decision is by the end of the month when Venus and Saturn align across your money sector. In the interim, a test around your values, money, parenting or even love could appear with the full Moon in your 2nd on the 12th. This Moon is known as the Sturgeon, Grain or Lynx Moon. It will make a tight angle to Uranus and could bring up a surprising twist or unexpected development. Is it in fact merely a reflection of a change you have already made within? Because when we change the outer world will in the end reflect this via the events it sends our way.

Something has to change and move with us or away from us under this full Moon. So keep this in mind and for more see your full Moon in Aquarius Moonscope.

There’s nothing small or insignificant about you from mid month onwards, Capricorn. Travel, learning and expansion feature as could writing, publishing and taking your content on the internet to a new level thanks to the meeting of Mercury and gorge Ganymed in your 9th on the 15th intent on taking your fabulization further. True hues, bigging up that message, going loud and proud – the astral body linked to the LGBTQIA+ communities is never shy nor apologetic and in your 9th does not do anything by half measures. Your identity matters no matter what it is. You also don’t need filters. Just realness. That change could simply be you refusing to be anything else from here on in.

You will spend right up until the 23rd when the Sun shifts into your 9th actively pursuing opportunities for transformation and self-empowerment. And the more changes you bring about, the more empowered you feel. Chances are you are engaged in this not simply for your own benefit but also for those you care about. Engaging with change means we want something better for our future. Envisioning what this looks like and the steps you have to take to attain it, set you on course to achieve it.

Many of you may see a situation shift of its own accord. One thing to remember about Uranus is that it always wants our freedom and those surprises it triggers usually bring this about. Although sometimes not in the way we expect, the end result is exactly that. The new Moon in your 9th on the 27th, promises events that reflect the changes you have been undergoing. Opportunity and even a stroke of luck and travel could feature for the next month. This is a time when you should be networking ahead of the shift of the Sun into your 10th at the end of September. Begin those plans now. For more on this see your New Moon in Virgo Moonscope.

The following day sees empowered change occur taking you on into September as Venus in your 8th opposes ruler Saturn in your 2nd. Time to separate the past from the present when it comes to your cash or what you want from your relationships. You have changed and the changes are still on-going. But the you of today needs more resonance and connection than you did previously. Just as you may channel your money and resources into different areas now. Your priorities have shifted but what this tells you is that connections are all important. Hence the need to get out, network and connect triggered by the new Moon. Or simply to show others how much you care. Build bridges of change now, Cappy between those you know and between you and your future.

In a nutshell: When we make changes within, the outside world and our relationships always reflects this. August delivers experiences and opportunities which show you just how much you’ve changed. Build a bridge between your present and your future, Capricorn.
