Capricorn August Horoscope

There is increased retrograde activity this month. Half the planets are moving backwards, although this is still not the maximum level for the year (this will happen next month). Things are slowing down in the world and in your life. There is nothing wrong with you. This is just the cosmic weather now. Even Capricorn’s vaunted patience will get a testing this month (and next).

The upper (day) side of your Horoscope is equally balanced with the lower night side. So, like last month, ambitions are stronger than they were earlier in the year before May, but not dominant. So, shift some attention to the career while maintaining harmony at home. It’s a juggling act right now. You can’t ignore either the home or the career.

Your 8th house was strong last month and is still strong until the 23rd. In the 8th house we grow and prosper not by adding things to ourselves but by getting rid of what doesn’t belong there. It is a time for a good detox of the body, mind and emotions. (Even the physical possessions.) When the unnecessary is purged we discover ‘resurrection’. Magically we are renewed.

The spouse, partner or current love is still prospering until the 23rd. By then the short-term financial goals have been attained and his or her interests shift. With you it is the opposite. Finances are still stressed until the 23rd, but afterwards rebound. There is prosperity (with relative ease) from the 23rd onwards.

Health is excellent this month. You have plenty of energy to attain whatever you set your mind to. With your health planet Mercury in the 8th house (since July 28) until the 12th, surgery could have been recommended. But with so many retrogrades it is best to get a second opinion. (Moreover, with all these retrogrades it is probably not wise to have surgery just now, even if it is necessary; reschedule for a later time if you can.)

Love doesn’t seem a major focus again this month. Your 7th house of love is empty. Only the Moon will move through there on the 5th and 6th. Your social magnetism (and enthusiasm) will be strongest from the 8th to the 22nd as the Moon waxes.

Your strong 9th house is wonderful for college-level students. It shows focus. They seem successful in their studies. It is especially good for religious, theological and philosophical studies.
