Welcome to August, Capricorn. Last month, thanks to Chiron retrograde, you saw changes in your home life. This could be as simple as redecorating or pointing to more considerable development, such as moving in with your partner or starting to see a friend as chosen family. So, when Tuesday, August 1, brings a full moon in Aquarius and your 2nd House of Possessions, avoid any potential full moon drama and enjoy time at home in your living space. Invite some friends over, cook dinner (or opt for delivery), and enjoy a game night, making sure to peek out to see the brilliant full moon.
Regardless of what Chiron retrograde meant for you, all Capricorns will see changes in their relationship when Juno, the “asteroid of commitment,” enters Leo and your 8th House of Sex, Death, and Transformation on Tuesday, August 15. The most obvious interpretation of this transit is that things heat up in any romantic partnership, whether you’re exploring sexual fantasies or talking about leveling up the relationship. If you’re not dating or asexual, Juno’s transit could point to a wellness makeover, whether trying a new haircut or changing your signature fragrance. Whether you’re broaching a conversation surrounding intimacy with your lover or trying a trendy skin care product, the new moon in vain Leo on Wednesday, August 16, is the perfect night to start your Juno in Leo journey.
Virgo season, that time of year that gives back-to-school vibes, begins on Wednesday, August 23. Giving into type, Capricorns tend to adore this time of year, as it’s both productive and practical. During Virgo season, you find yourself able to be direct and call anyone out who speaks passive-aggressively (which is one of your biggest pet peeves). Be warned that on this same date, Wednesday, August 23, Mercury goes retrograde, which can make conversations more convoluted. Of course, perfectionist Capricorn, even if you would never dare use such tacky tactics as speaking passive-aggressively, others may. Try not to start any major fights over it. Mercury retrograde can rag on everyone’s nerves, making it easier to feel on edge.
But Mercury isn’t the only planet taking us on a backward waltz across the sky. Uranus is retrograde in Taurus and your 5th House of Pleasure for five months starting on Monday, August 28. The rebel of the zodiac, Uranus retrograde, can point to unexpected changes and breakthroughs. You may discover a latent kink and integrate it into your life or find a new avenue of creativity. Whatever it is, it’s sure to be fun, Capricorn. Finally, the month starts to close on Wednesday, August 30, with a full moon in dreamy Pisces. This is a night to treat yourself, and a friend or lover, by enjoying a restaurant you’ve never been to or deciding to break the rules and go out on a school night. Have fun, and see you in September.
