Welcome to July, Capricorn! During June, you laid low to avoid eclipse drama. When your ruling planet, strict Saturn (which is currently in Aquarius) opposes romantic Venus (which is currently in Leo) on Tuesday, July 6, you’re met with a familiar debate. Do you go out and party or stay in to rest up for work? Try moderation and see how it feels.
During the dark new moon in emotional Cancer on Friday, July 9, you may feel like making love, dear Cap. Whether you’re new to the dating scene or in a long-term relationship, you’re craving emotional intimacy. Stay in with your partner or date, cook a meal, and even trade massages. When the communication planet Mercury also enters sweet Cancer on Sunday, July 11, you’re able to tell your person how you feel. Your stiff upper lip may be useful at work, but in matters of love, it’s important to become comfortable with vulnerability.
On Thursday, July 15, a comet known as Chiron, the “wounded healer,” goes retrograde in brave Aries. When Chiron goes retrograde, everyone is tasked with confronting old wounds and trauma. You sometimes act indestructible to the point where others forget to ask you how you’re doing. And then, you can often end up feeling overlooked. Following themes from above, Chiron retrograde asks you to become comfortable with vulnerability. It will help deepen connections with both friends and lovers.
Your focus will be all about your career when the sun in Cancer opposes Pluto, the planet of transformation, which is currently in your sign on Saturday, July 17. Put a note in your calendar, because you can expect bountiful professional news around this time. You’re feeling sharp and motivated when Venus, the planet of love, beauty, and money enters detail-oriented Virgo on Wednesday, July 21. You have permission to work as hard as you want, just make sure to text your friends and lovers back before you enter your Capricorn work mode.
Get as much done off your to-do list as possible, because when celebratory Leo season begins on Thursday, July 22, you’ll be in the mood to party. With more people getting vaccinated and cities reopening, you might even be able to show off your dance moves and bold makeup looks. Give yourself permission to let your guard down during the full moon in eccentric Aquarius on Friday, July 23. You will be more productive at work if you factor in some time for fun.
Beware of the potential for over-thinking, paranoia, and anxiety when warrior Mars enters obsessive Virgo on Thursday, July 29. You are filled with motivation and creativity, but if self-doubt creeps in, you just need to find a way to self-soothe. You can do it, Capricorn! Consider working with a therapist if you aren’t already, and make a schedule that allows for work-life balance. Take care of yourself, and see you in August!
