This is going to be an awesome new beginning and we’re glad we’re taking it with you. These monthly love reports will enable you to make better choices in love and finally, to have that love you absolutely deserve!
We think you’re going to just love our information packed reports, delivered right to you each and every month. You will learn when the best days to do things are- and when those days aren’t so great, and what you should focus on so that you can find that love you want. So, let’s get started with the first report for you, Capricorn.
First, we’ll take a look at Venus, planet of Love, and where this affectionate energy will be felt the most:
With Venus moving into Leo- you are going to find that you have a really great chance at love, Capricorn. This is because this particular placement for Venus will help you to take a long hard look at your values- which is not something you’re usually averse to, though sometimes, you have a rough time in changing them. However, this will help you to fine tune those higher standards of yours and understand that well, frankly: people need to meet them in order to be with you. There’s nothing wrong with that, at all!
This is also an incredible time to open your heart, because you will find that it is a bit easier to break away from those limiting beliefs and those inhibitions you had in respect to love. You may also find that this particular transit’s influence on your pocketbook helps you feel a lot more confident about being able to let go and have fun: and that never hurts a thing, does it?
On the 5th, Venus moves into fellow Earth sign, Virgo, and right into the area in your stars that rules over love, happiness and creativity. If Venus in Leo set the tone for love to be grand this month, Venus in Virgo sets the tone for a month filled with good feeling and all of your favorite things. So far, August is shaping up quite nicely, Capricorn- and that’s just the beginning.
In the last days of the month, Venus will move into Libra and the mood will shift a bit. However, the balance this can often bring may drive home the lessons and the strengths built when it was in Virgo, so, not bad at all, there, either. A little challenging at times, but there’s really not much Capricorns do better than rise to the challenges lobbed at them and turn them into gold, is there?
Next, we’ll look at where Mercury, the planet of communication and understanding is positioned in your stars for the month of August:
Mercury will be positioned in Virgo for the entirety of the month, placing the emphasis for connecting with someone who makes you happy. In a fellow Earth sign, Mercury enables you to really articulate your thoughts and say the things you mean to say.
This transiting energy also boosts your ability to connect with someone special on an intellectual level, while Venus is working its magic helping you to connect on a romantic level.
Connection will be a big factor this month, so take the time to not just listen, but to really hear what those in your company are saying. For Capricorn, this is not always the easiest thing: there is a tendency to be a bit more clued in, and a bit more rational about certain things than most- so, you’re going to have to have some patience, but it will be worth your while.
In these portions of your chart, Mercury can push you to fill your life and your thoughts with the things that make you happy. You may start a new creative project, pick back up an old hobby, or just spend time in the company of those who bring you joy. You will want to remain busy with projects that may actually go somewhere- and you will likely be able to find them a little bit easier than usual. So, avoid making a person your project- find someone who meets those standards, let the rest go to the side.
Now that we know where you stand when it comes to communication and affection, let’s talk about where you will find passion—In other words, let’s have a look at Mars:
Mars, the planet we most closely associate with passion, starts out the first few days of the month of August in the deeply passionate, and more often than not, kinky Scorpio. People don’t usually realize this about Capricorn- but, well, the goat’s a pretty freaky sign at times. We know, bubbling beneath the surface is a real wild child longing to just get really, really down and dirty- and you will have plenty of this energy moving around to make things just…so…interesting, Capricorn.
It’s worth mentioning that Mars moving through this area of your stars can also bring about conflicts in relationships. Aggression and competition can cause problems, but these issues, should they come up, won’t hang around for long, and when it comes to non-romantic concerns: you win. Always. This is what a Capricorn does when competition’s on the line, and you have enough going on in other areas of your chart to indicate you have a lot in your favor- so, don’t back down from a good competition. However, don’t let this mess with your love life. Engage this energy in other, more fun ways: and keep an open mind with your loved ones.
This Mars placement gives a great boost to your sex life- which, can definitely help keep you using it to your best advantage, rather than having yet another head butting match with the partner that goes nowhere, right?
After the 3rd, Mars will move into fiery Sagittarius, making your desires all the more adventurous. What this boils down to, and we will definitely go deeper into this aspect of your love life for the month of August, is the stage being set for some sizzling summer fun, both in the streets and between the sheets.
Now, I know what you’re thinking…”But that’s only three planets!” Well, you are correct there, but these are the quickest moving and most influential planets we deal with on a day to day basis, and when it comes down to love, these are the guys who will bring on the fluctuations of good days and not so good days for your sign as we go through the month. We’ll look into what the other planets are doing, as well, so don’t worry.
Why you will find all your hard work and compromises pay off in August, Capricorn
There are very, very few things that a Capricorn likes more than when everything just falls into place- though, that tends to be because they make it happen, behind the scenes or otherwise and this absolutely holds true for your love life in August. When we begin the month with Venus in Leo- it seems as though you’re going to start off the month with a few awkward conversations that end up pretty good. But, once it moves into Virgo- things really begin to get better.
In Virgo, you feel the down to Earth and affectionate Venus energy in a really positive way. Virgo rules over your happiness and this is where your “love” lies. Relationships and love are two separate things, really. You understand building strong foundations of trust better than most, Capricorn, and this is precisely what you can do with this organized and very warm energy.
You want a strong, loyal partner who isn’t afraid to roll up their sleeves and do the work to get things on a better path: both tangibly and emotionally Capricorn, but when Venus transits through Virgo this is enhanced and you tend to attract just the type you desire. And you don’t have to settle on the crap that comes along- and you know you’ve seen it, as they tend to be attracted to your hardworking, ambitious side. No scrubs, please! Shout all the Capricorn natives. Give these options time to prove themselves to you and you won’t go wrong with that.
If you are already in a relationship, this month you’ll want to spice things up a bit. People don’t understand that the usually aloof seeming Capricorn- is actually a huge, giant pervert under the cover of that cool demeanor. More than that, the earthy, primal sign- is well, the most primal of all the signs, actually and needs very intense sex to truly enjoy it. You need a sexual partner you can really let loose with- and if your partner’s not meeting your needs, it’s time to clue them in and let them get ready to experiment with you: this will help things a great deal.
How You Can Get The Most Out Of The New Moon In Leo
The New Moon in Leo, happening on the 2nd, promises to bring a hint of excitement and adventure to your life in more ways than one, Capricorn. This New Moon is an intense one for you- owing to some Plutonian energy that is beginning to really peak: and Pluto as it relates to Capricorn is usually the hard work of inner healing and manifestation but also, being able to tear down those hurtful self feelings and build yourself back up again. Anyone that is not helping that needs to go- pure and simple. Anyone who insults or makes you feel like less than amazing: kick them to the curb and do not feel bad about it.
This New Moon occurs right at the exact time Venus, also in Leo, and Uranus will be positively aspecting one another. What this means is a fresh start that will allow for you to follow your dreams and because Capricorn is on solid ground always: you will be able to do so realistically, without worrying about getting lost in some fantasy a whole lot as others may.
Venus and Uranus making this positive exchange of energy at the time of the New Moon is no coincidence. August is a month of fresh starts and improvements to your life that feed your happiness. Keep an open mind to new possibilities and you’ll find a myriad of opportunity ahead of you, both in love and in your personal life as it pertains to friends and relatives.
Another awesome event that coincides with this New Moon is the aspect it will be making with Saturn that will soften the sometimes difficult Saturnian energy. This is really great considering this sets the tone for the weeks to come.
The aspect with Saturn here is even more emphasized because, well, when we have the New Moon making this aspect that means the Sun is as well, and in Leo this is a pretty powerful kind of energy. Being as Saturn IS your ruler, you will find that you handle this energy very well and the challenges that may be presented are a bit easier for you to navigate than they would be others: though your challenges may be more direct.
This aspect reminds you to go after whatever it is that you want most and to accept nothing short of what you know you deserve in life. With this New Moon in Leo, romance is highly favored and the feeling of warmth and being wanted is definitely there.
Along with the New Moon making an aspect that lightens up Saturn a bit, there is also an aspect with Lilith, the black moon, that poses a bit of a challenge. This forces you to choose between what is comfortable and that which is more dark and daring. You may be forced to make a choice or more than one: hard choices that change the course of your future.
However, because you deeply understand that the choices you make now have far reaching consequences- and rewards: you will be find in making it, as long as you do not see it as a failure, but rather, moving forward.
Ways Mercury Is Really On Your Side This Month
Mercury makes a number of interesting aspects within your chart this month, Capricorn, and most of them are rather helpful.
On the 4th, Mercury and the transiting Moon will make a connection, making it easier to feel the connections you have with others on an emotional level. Sharing feelings can be a positive experience and you’ll even feel more in-tuned with your own emotions. It is occasionally difficult for you to fully open up because being vulnerable is not your favorite thing- but, this aspect will enable you to speak your heart without a whole lot of fear.
Just a few days later, on the 8th, Mercury and Pluto share a positive exchange of energy, all in Earth signs. Deep conversations that help you to better understand yourself and your intrinsic motivations in life open your eyes to parts of life you’ve not yet explored. This energy is also great for personal evolution and growth and can be a marker for leveling up in life, or in your relationship, so to speak.
Later in the month, Mercury and Jupiter make a direct connection that lasts from the 21st–24th, all in Virgo. This fantastic energy brings forward feeling of optimism and hope for the future, as well as helping you in connecting with your partner, or yourself, on a spiritual level.
Lastly, Venus and Jupiter make a direct connection in Virgo on the 28th. This is one of the most positive energies you can have in transit through your stars and is a great marker for growth in love and romance. These things ALSO impacting your wallet and your opportunities to earn money: this again does not hurt and also has you feeling very confident about where things are heading.
How To Harness The Power Of The Full Moon In Aquarius
On the 18th the Aquarius Full Moon illuminates the area in your stars that rules your karmic path and your reputation. This energy will be rather intense and you can use this time to bring an end to any of the things in your professional life that just aren’t working for you. Has work gotten in the way of your love life? If so, now’s the time to fix that.
Aquarian Full Moons push us to think outside the box and find solutions to our problems in the least likely of places. Don’t get too hung up on the old ways of handling whatever problems may be in your life. Accepting progressive modes of thinking are easier for Capricorns, as well- because you understand that if something’s not working, it’s not working, and so, time to change things up better than most: so you’re a step ahead of the game there, already.
This particular Full Moon, although powerful in and of itself, also has Venus making a major aspect with another of the more powerful celestial energies: again, Pluto. I mentioned how powerful an impact Pluto has on you, already, but, here’s where we get into some major meat.
This particular transit- alongside the Pluto retrograde that many Capricorns have been hit hard with: tends to cause a lot of pain. If you have been hurt or hurting and it has seemed like one horrible thing after another- first off, fear not. This is hard work going on in your soul and as bad as it sucks- it’s necessary. Secondly, look at the patterns. What is the running constant with those painful situations?
What got taken away, or torn down and what was it keeping you from? Not everything you lose is a loss- as you well know, Capricorn. What happens on the 18th though, this will be one of the peaks of Pluto tearing down the negative associations you’ve had over the years. Venus will make an amazing connection with Pluto in this fundamental area of your stars right at the same time the Lunar energy is at its peak.
Now is an absolutely perfect time to rid your life, or your psyche, of things that no longer serve a purpose when it comes to finding total happiness, and also, that this is a period where you can get closer to that special someone than you have before.
There is a possibility here for twinges of insecurity or a fear of things taking a turn for the worse: ignore them. Self doubt is certainly the Capricorn demon of choice and you need to face it and understand what’s fueling it. Once you do, you can move past those thoughts and into the joy you’re looking for.
When Venus and Pluto make this great connection, the potential for there to be some crazy love happening in your life is huge….HUGE. Pluto not only does its work by tearing away the negatives in your life and stripping you down to your rawest form, the planetary energy also can bring some intensely intimate experiences into your life.
How Mars Is Spicing Things Up Beyond Your Wildest Dreams
With Mars in Scorpio until the 3rd there will be plenty of energy there for the physical side of things, should that be where your head is at. Really, the beginning of August gives you the best of both worlds and will allow you to kinda choose which path you’d like to start the month out heading down. It’s truly a luxury to be able to pick and choose which direction your love life will go: actually, it’s a pretty amazing thing, given all you have likely been through thus far this year.
As I mentioned earlier, Mars starts the month in the area of your stars that rules over your relationships, and with this transit comes a fiery, powerful surge of energy into your one-on-one encounters. There is always the potential for Mars to bring trouble- but behind every warrior is a tactician, someone who can plan to use that aggressive energy to its fullest potential: and that’d be you, Capricorn. You can transform aggression into assertion- and get things done.
After the 3rd, Mars will position itself in an area of your chart responsible for your darker side. This can bring out any pent up anger, disagreements in joint financial situations, or competition in your most intimate connections.
The flip side to this is being able to harness this powerful energy and use it to generate passion you can then put into your life in a great way. Capricorns do not deal well with people that mess with their money: and given other aspects at play in your chart, there’s no reason you SHOULD, in these cases. However, if it’s a connection you would like to keep, it may be a good idea to temper your anger a bit and work it out.
What To Do When Reality And Fantasy Come Head To Head
The month of August is proving to be pretty amazing when it comes to romance so far, and this can help you when it comes to making some lasting changes or additions to your love life. The main kink in the works this month comes toward the end, right around the 30th, when Saturn and Neptune square off, yet again.
You are likely familiar with this energy by now, as this has been happening of and on for what feels like an eternity- and as a result, it’s been throwing up some confusion that hasn’t been fun to deal with. Nobody likes to be unclear. Neptune aims to muddy the waters of reality and cause confusion in all areas of your life. Mars adds fuel to this fire and can cause you to see situations through a lens that is a bit off from reality.
The best thing that Capricorn can do in instances where things are unclear is just to be a Capricorn. Be blunt, be candid. Clarify. Do not go away until you are both completely clear on what’s going on. Any confusion is left, you are not clarifying yourself- or they’re not. If they are unwilling to do so, you should probably give them a pass. Nobody wants a shady character skulking around their love life.
One more thing that bears mentioning for the month of August is the fact that Mercury will be moving into another Mercury retrograde period in the final days of August. This can cause some confusion, miscommunication, and general frustration for you that will last well into September. We’ll talk more about this in next month's forecast, just know it is coming and that the last couple of days in August have all the makings of bringing some frustrations with them.
