Key themes: trust issues, remaining open to explore new perspectives and approaches to life, choosing who you share yourself with and respecting your limits, tapping not your inner child, connecting with your playful side, trusting where you’re at on the road to your life goals
You may be rethinking your beliefs, checking in to see if they still align with your journey. Mercury retrograding through your area of expansion may have you coming up against the obstacles that are getting in the way of what you know can help open up your world. Be patient. Be observant. Allow yourself to explore new ideas and new approaches to life. This can serve in overcoming what is getting in your way.
Venus is finally stationing to go direct on the 3rd, after having taken you on a ride during the past 40 days through your collaborations, co-creations and spaces of intimacy. Things will still be falling into place until October 7th when Venus comes out of its post-retrograde shadow phase. This is your time to choose what you share with others, especially when it comes to your time, energy and resources.
The next day, on the 4th, Jupiter will station to go retrograde for what is left of the year. Jupiter is currently transiting your area of creative self-expression and romance. These next four months of Jupiter’s retrograde motion will be about reviewing how you wish to keep expanding the ways you experience pleasure, creativity, and play. Jupiter wants you to make time for the simple pleasures. Connect to the small delights that you love the most. This is an abundant time for your creative projects. But there’s no need to rush, take things slow. Trust that leisure time can be a great way to get your creative juices flowing.
On the 6th, Mercury will enter the heart of the Sun during its retrograde motion, offering some clarity regarding the path you’re currently on and how you wish to keep expanding your life. Which beliefs or current life perspectives do you feel may be limiting your ability to move forward?
We have the New Moon in Virgo on the 14th, at 9:40 pm EST, reminding you that it’s ok to get it wrong, as long as you’re willing to keep learning and moving forward. Take the leap, and try not to get discouraged if you don’t get the opportunities you desire. As you keep moving forward you’ll create that chance for yourself or an even better one will come along. Commit with the long-game in mind. Setbacks only represent more knowledge for you in this game. You’ll become clever about choosing and knowing where the real deal is at. Steer clear of unnecessary power struggles and drama. The lighter the load the further the reach.
On the next day, the 15th, Mercury will station to go direct, and things will begin to speed up a bit. You may feel your sense of direction returning. Feelings of being lost and unmoored will begin to loosen up little by little and you’ll be able to have clearer vision when looking forward, until the 29th where we’ll all be more in the clear once the post-retrograde period is over.
We welcome Libra Season on the 23rd, shining a light on your professional goals and aspirations. This is your time to get seen for the things you do out in the world. There’s a lot you can accomplish and get done, but try not to push yourself too far over your limit. Take it slow, remember the lessons that Jupiter is teaching you about all of the magic that is capable of coming through you when you allow for leisure, play and pleasure. Do your best to find a balance that feels right, where you don’t burn out from doing too much, and where you don’t end up feeling that you’re not doing enough.
On the 29th, we will have the Full Moon in Aries at 5:57 am EST, inviting you to explore what makes you feel safe, nourished and grounded. Bring awareness to the parts of your past that come to visit and the messages they bring about your present. This is an invitation to pause and to celebrate your successes. No matter where you are in your journey, congratulate yourself for what you’ve been able to accomplish up until now. Pauses are part of the path towards progress. Remember that your value is the same whether you’re going through a great time in your career or a time of mishaps or transformation. It is all part of a longer process. Trust where you are now.
Key themes: celebrating your talents and resources, finding the richness in collaboration, making space for the uncomfortable conversations, stretching your ideas of the world, coming out of your comfort zone, revisiting your long-term plans
Dear Capricorn, we kick the month of August off with the Full Moon in Aquarius becoming exact at 2:31 pm EST, on the 1st. This happens in your area of resources, talents and sense of self-worth. Take a look at the bounty of your financial planning. Instead of focusing on what you lack, celebrate the ways in which you’re already well-resourced. Celebrate the growth you’ve already accomplished. Appreciate any material blessings that find their way to you now, but don’t make this the central focus. It’s important that you also pay attention to and honor the abundance available within your skills and talents.
Venus will be retrograde throughout all of the month of August and into the first days of September. This is an event that happens once every 18 months, and brings with it a deeper understanding to what we want from our relationships, how our current relationships are flowing and how open we are to intimacy. This 40 day transit is happening in Leo in your area of intimacy and shared resources. Venus is giving you the chance to get to know the parts of you that make it hard to collaborate or co-create with others. Does your idea of others keep you from merging your energy with them? Would it be possible for you to try entering into a collaboration with honest curiosity, allowing the chance to get to know others beyond your initial or superficial ideas of them? Disappointment is always an option, but you may also be very pleasantly surprised.
On the 16th, we have the New Moon in Leo, highlighting this Venus retrograde process. This will be an especially intense Moon, as it will also be conjunct Black Moon Lilith and square Uranus, bringing focus to your current collaborations and how to make the work. If a certain partnership feels stagnant or off, this is a good time to put ego and expectations aside in order to figure out how and where the relationship is in need of a check-up. Holding space for the uncomfortable conversations is always healing.
Welcome Virgo season! Stretching our understanding of the world may sometimes feel threatening. But during this month, it’s the best way to plant seeds for the future. This Virgo Sun is inviting you to leave your comfort zone regularly in order to know yourself more deeply and expansively. Mercury also goes retrograde here in Virgo on the same day, the 23rd, reminding you that if you’ve gotten the most out of the places and groups where you frequent, if you feel there’s no more space to grow, it might be time to wander towards new and more challenging horizons.
On the 27th, Mars shifts from Virgo to Libra into your area of professional aspirations and long-term goals. Mars will be offering you the energy needed to make realistic plans towards your life goals, and you’ll have the focus to take them head on. You can make strides in your career and your public image right now. You may also feel like you have to set an example for others, and it’ll be easier for you to stand up for what you believe in.
On the next day, Uranus will be going into its yearly retrograde phase for the next 5 months. What helps you tap into the freedom needed to fully express yourself? What proves to be a barrier towards your self-expression? You’re gaining more and more clarity to this. Make sure to work on getting rid of the obstacles that block your path.
We end the month of August with the Full Moon in the sign of Pisces becoming exact at 9:35 pm EST, on the 30th. This happens in your area of communication, immediate environment and daily rituals, shining a light on what works in your daily life. Deadlines may be felt more strongly right now. This Moon wants to help you work on not taking what the outside world is expecting from you so personally. It also wants to remind you to be present within life’s small moments while you’re working towards life’s larger plans.
The north node in Aries and the south node in Libra have been settling into your area of home and family and your area of professional pursuits and long-term goals, respectively. Your quest for belonging is what will be giving you direction during the next 18 months, and this may even lead to a drastic change in your life path.
Key themes: your potential, acting with courage, believing in yourself, coming out of your comfort zone, exchanges that can lead towards financial support, healing your past, co-creation.
Dear Capricorn, as July begins it sparks your personal power with the Full Moon in your sign becoming exact on the 3rd at 7:38 am EST. What have you been growing yourself into during the past months? How have you become more aware of your potential? What do you feel like doing with all of this? Proceed with courage! You’ve put so much work into yourself and your life path. Take a moment to acknowledge this, thank yourself, celebrate yourself. Make some time to get deeper into your journey of self-care. You deserve it.
As Mars enters Virgo on the 10th, it urges you to seek out places, people, and experiences that leave you feeling like your world has stretched. Any time consciously spent outside of your comfort zone will help nurture your drive to explore, understand, and expand your inner horizons. Push yourself towards seeing life from a broader perspective during the next month and half.
On the 11th, we have another shift in energy when Mercury moves into Leo in your area of intimacy, collaboration, and shared resources. This is an ideal time to delve into the networks of exchange, sharing, lending and debt. Explore what might be available to you in the form of loans, grants, credit, scholarships, or anything that can offer financial support. Connections and conversations can lead to fruitful exchanges. Also, the more you put your pain into words this next two and a half weeks the less stuck and clouded things will feel.
As the North Node enters Aries for the next 18 months on the 17th, it reminds you about the parts of your past that are in need of attention, compassion, and understanding. This will be a time to witness yourself and your foundations from a wider perspective. This will take patience. It’s a time to appreciate yourself for all you’ve gone through, and recommit to telling your own tale. Connect with your truth, tend to detangling and reweaving your own journey.
The Sun enters the passionate sign of Leo on the 22nd, shining a light on your ability to merge yourself and your resources with another. Venus goes retrograde on the same day, and will be in backwards motion for the next six weeks. What will come up for review will have to do with what keeps you from collaborating and co-creating with others. Instead of judging yourself for what you do and don’t do, get to know yourself more deeply. Become curious about why you are like you are and act like you do. Being vulnerable and understanding with yourself is the first step toward more open and honest bonds.
On the next day, Chiron goes retrograde in Aries boosting the lessons that the North Node has in store for you. There are things from your past that are in need of healing. This is an ideal time to dig in, identify them and make space for process and release. This will help you own your own life story.
Pluto will find itself right in the middle between the North and South Node on the 23rd, 25th and 28th, connecting you with the deep transformation that you went through during the past years. Here Pluto is serving as a link between the past and the future, pointing towards what we need to let go of in order to move forward. Pluto is inviting you to own this new you. Own what you perceive as flaws as much as you own your gifts and talents. You’re being able to touch on the potential that you’re meant to embody in the world.
On the 28th, Mercury will enter Virgo, inviting you to look into the rules and structures that dominate your way of thinking. Check in to see if you’re abiding by rules that are too constricting. This may end up limiting or even extinguishing your creative fire. Find and cultivate more expansive and sustaining rules, ones that offer space to roam.
Key themes: feeling good within your own body, closure, rest, trust issues, shared resources, taking up space, getting organized, the power of your ideas, delegating, emotional security, bringing more magic into your day-to-day life
Dear Capricorn, we kick off the month of June with the planet of abundance and expansion joining forces with the point in space that guides us toward what they call destiny. Strangely enough Capricorn, you know that joy and pleasure are essential in order to make space for more abundance in your life. Your self-worth and your ability to feel good in your body is very connected to your creativity and playful nature. This is a reminder that it’s never a good idea for you to get too rigid.
The Full Moon in Sagittarius is happening on the 3rd at 11:42 pm EST in your area of the unconscious. This Full Moon can help you get some kind of closure you maybe didn’t even know you were in need of. If uneasy feelings arise, don’t ignore them. These emotions are likely to contain pearls of wisdom, and are ultimately here to help you release and heal. Sleep a little more these days if you can, and lean on our spiritual practices.
On the 5th Venus moves out of the nurturing sign of Cancer and into passionate Leo, occupying your area of sexuality and shared resources for the next four months. Your collaborations and joint-ventures will be infused with some sweetness but will also be going through a major overhaul. If certain relationships are bringing up old fears around scarcity and your need for independence, pay attention to where this is coming from before making any rash decisions. Trusting someone else with your love, resources, and/or security is big. Know who those people can be, and bring up the necessary conversations if things are feeling off.
Pluto moves back into your sign for the last time in our lifetime on the 11th, here we’ll have a chance to collectively go into a deeper review of the structures that have been proving to no longer work but that we insist on trying to maintain. This may show up more personally in your life within your sense of identity and your journey of self-discovery. Pluto has been transforming you on a deeply personal level since 2008. During this time you’ve been working on trusting yourself to take up space. It’ll be a good time to review where this still feels uncomfortable for you and why.
Also on the 11th, Mercury enters the sign of Gemini where it feels most at ease, this happens in your area of work, health and wellness routines. This will be a great time to get organized, and to work on a routine that’s healthy and feels right for you first and foremost. Mercury can help you document what feels more efficient, and help you collect the data that can lead you towards understanding your own patterns.
Saturn will go retrograde in the sign of Pisces for the next five months on the 17th in your area of communication and daily activities. This transit that began in March has been facing you with the power of your words, ideas and ways of thinking. This will be a time to work on trusting the value of your perspectives. It will help you know your truth in order to speak your truth, instead of taking on certain dominant or niche ideologies. By all means, go after the ideas that attract you, but instead of regurgitating them, find how they fit into your reality and work on making them your own.
On the 18th, the New Moon in Gemini becomes exact at 12:37 am EST, inviting you to plant seeds for the future. You’re the best at multitasking and getting things done. But how often do you schedule some rest? This New Moon is urging you to find balance, especially if you’re burning out. Life is different for everybody, so find what can work for you, a power nap, going to bed a bit earlier, not taking your work home, asking your spouse if they can watch the kids a bit longer or a friend or family member if they can help out.
Cancer Season comes rolling in on the 21st when the Sun enters its nurturing sign, followed by Mercury entering Cancer as well on the 26th, shining a light on your one-on-one relationships. This month isn’t a time to go it alone. Make more space for your friends and collaborators, especially the ones that you don’t have to pretend with, and that make space for all of you. Don’t be afraid to ask your loved ones for what you need. Emotional security is so important.
The month comes to an end with the beginning of Neptune’s annual five month retrograde period in your area of daily life and ritual. Check into how your need for being too realistic might be limiting you. Allow yourself to become imaginative about the way you structure your day-to-day life, especially when it comes to the areas that feel stagnant. How can you bring more magic in?
Key Themes: feeling safe within your body, letting go of the ones that are leading you astray, deepening the relationships that feel right, play and experimentation
Dear Capricorn, this is a year of transition, with the eclipses having shifted signs, and Pluto going in and out of Aquarius until it finally settles there for the next 20 years at the beginning for 2024. The month of May begins with Pluto going retrograde on the 1st for the next 5 months, where it will begin to make its way back into your sign. Before it moves back into your sign of the sea goat for the last time in our lifetime, reflect on how your approach to safety, security and your financial world is shifting. Work on identifying and letting go of the habits and limiting beliefs that may be blocking your abundance.
We are in the midst of eclipse season, with the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio happening on May 5th in your area of friendships and community, transforming it. How are your interpersonal dynamics shifting? What relationships and dynamics are you realizing no longer work for you? It’s time to say no to what drains you. It’s ok to create the distance needed from certain groups and people in order to reconnect with your power and your needs, and to find balance.
Venus has been in the sign of play, communication and interconnection for the past 4 weeks, and on May 7th it will shift into the nurturing sign of Cancer, where it’ll have us yearning for the people and the places that feel like home for the following 4 weeks. Happening in your area of partnerships, it’ll be hard for you not to give into vulnerability. This is a time to let down your guard with the ones you trust and love. Soften up. Surrender to the tenderness and nurture you yearn for within your intimate relationships with lovers, besties and/or collaborators.
Mercury will finally go direct on the 14th, after taking you through a review during the past 3 weeks of your ability to create without a goal in mind. Now as it goes direct in the sign of Taurus, you’re being invited to have the experience instead of reading or hearing about it from somebody else. Activate your senses. Use your creativity. Indulge in erotic experimentation. Find out what you can learn about and through your pleasure. Switch things up, you don’t always have to like the same things. What are you feeling attracted to lately?
Jupiter, the planet of abundance, is entering Taurus, the sign of earthly pleasure, on the 16th, and the first thing it does once it gets there is have a tense meet up with Pluto in Aquarius. This transit will serve as a reminder that our lack of wealth has nothing to do with us personally. It’s past time we stop buying to the manifestation discourse. It’s past time we realize that we’re living in a system that’s rigged to make it impossible for all to succeed or even make a dignified living. So know that your worth has absolutely nothing to do with your financial sustenance or your social status. You are worthy just as you are, dear Capricorn.
For you, this year to come will be all about having good times. But this requires you to let loose, are you up for it Capricorn? It requires that you allow yourself to play. Practice connecting with your inner child, listen to them, indulge their desires. The creative in you is dying to come out. Think less, and let your impulsive side come through. Play can be sacred if you allow it to be.
On the 20th, the Sun moves out of Taurus making way for Gemini Season. This is the season that reminds us of the power of our words and our interactions. So don’t underestimate what you communicate, to others and also to yourself. Your rituals and routines will come to focus. You’ll feel the need to get organized within the more mundane details of your life, especially with everything you put into your career. It’s a nice time to find a balance, and to get in touch with the goals you desire for your personal life, especially regarding your health.
Key themes: tapping into your creative fire, checking in on your career and long-term goals, recommitting to your health and wellness routines, reassessing your work habits, connecting with family and ancestry.
Dear Capricorn, there has been so much movement in the cosmos since the beginning of the astrological year. Mars finally left its 7 month residency through Gemini, entering Cancer, where it invites us to be courageous with our emotions.
Pluto’s shift into Aquarius for the next 20 years, after having spent the past 15 years in the sign of Capricorn, helping to reveal and dismantle the societal structure that only work for the few, will now show us what we have to heal and bring to the surface regarding collectivity and our ability to work together towards shared causes. Prepare for some deep transformation to occur within or through your resources, talents, finances, and the things that are capable of uplifting your sense of self-worth.
With Saturn also having shifted signs, into Pisces, we’re becoming more permeable and empathic, and this will require us to consistently check in on our personal boundaries. This is especially noticeable for you in your communication, daily activities and immediate environment. Trust that your perspective has value, because these next three years you’ll have the ability to make serious waves with your ideas.
The month of April begins with Mercury stepping out of Aries and settling into Taurus on the 3rd in your area of creative self-expression. You’re being asked to slow down and indulge in the pleasures of life. Savor everything. Dive deep into what life has to offer you. This is not just about reading books and listening to other peoples experiences, or about observing things from afar. It’s about getting your hands dirty and living every experience with all of your senses. Open up to new insights about yourself and your desires.
The Full Moon in Libra happens on the 6th at 12:34 am EST, shining a light on your professional life. Take time to celebrate all of your successes. Let the lessons of your accomplishments sink in. Allow yourself to enjoy the fruits that you have labored to manifest. Take the time to ask yourself, what might be too much to continue with? What has become too draining and without proper benefits? Meet the answers with an uncompromising tenderness for yourself and your worth.
On the 11th, Venus, the planet of love, will enter the connection seeking sign of Gemini. You may find yourself captivated by the intricate systems and moving parts that make up your work environment. If you find yourself in a reserved or isolated work space, this is a nice time to get to know your coworkers a little better by playing around with breaking down the communication barriers. It’s also a nice time to find ways to make your office space more inviting, small touches of beauty can come a long way in making your day a bit sweeter.
Eclipse Season is back, and we’ll have a New Moon Total Annular Solar Eclipse in Aries on the 2oth at 12:12 am EST, right before the Sun moves into Taurus. As this happens in your area of family and ancestry, you’re being urged to bring any fears or concerns you have regarding your home and your relationships within it into the light. Eclipses catalyze change. What do you need in order to feel safer within your home? What steps can you begin to take to accomplish this? This is a time for you to take action towards your comfort and your emotional and physical stability, and that of the ones under your care.
Then at 4:13am EST, that same day, we make way for Taurus Season, shining a light on your creative nature. You’re not here to stay quiet and in line. You’re not here to fulfill the expectations that society holds of you. Your wild nature isn’t a flaw. It actually holds so many talents and potentials. Your creative fire could never be a limitation for your well-being. Your desires aren’t a nuisance. This Season is shining a light on your passions and the sacred space that is available in allowing yourself to be playful, to connect with your inner child, and to come into your pleasure. On the next day, Mercury goes retrograde also in the sign of Taurus, taking you through a process of reviewing all of this, and maybe bringing some setbacks that can help you establish the truth of what you need before you can more authentically honor your self-expression.
