capricorn July horoscope
SUMMARY Capricorn JULY HOROSCOPE:
A solar eclipse sweeps new energy into your 7th house of relationships, and Mercury’s retrograde in this same sector could mean changes are on the way. A lunar eclipse in your sign could bring a personal or relationship matter to a head.
EXTENDED capricorn JULY HOROSCOPE:
July continues to focus on relationship matters, as Mercury, Mars, the Sun, Venus, and the North Node glide through your 7th house all month and make lovely aspects to Neptune in your commitment sector, Uranus in your love zone, and each other.
In fact, July 2nd sees a beautiful solar eclipse in your partnership house at 10 degrees Cancer, which could see you take a big step in a close relationship.
This eclipse will conjunct the fated (and lucky!) North Node in your 7th house, oppose Saturn in your sign, sextile Uranus in your 5th house of love and children, and trine Neptune in your commitment sector.
It seems you might take a huge step in a relationship this month- perhaps even becoming engaged or married! If you’ve been trying for a baby, this might be the time you get a positive test!
You have some really excellent aspects this month for 7th house matters, so look to the following days to make your moves: July 8th, 11th, 17th, 18th, 21st, 24th.
With Saturn and Pluto opposing your 7th house and several of these planets, however, you could encounter challenges along your way. Tricky days include July 4th, 14th, 17th, and 21st.
Keep a special eye on July 9th, when the Sun will conjunct the North Node in your 7th house but oppose Saturn in your sign.
In fact, there's actually ANOTHER eclipse- this one lunar- in Capricorn and your sign of personality and identity- on July 16th. This is a very interesting eclipse, given that it is conjunct both Saturn and Pluto. Now, Saturn is a tricky planet to judge, as he can bring both very challenging and very positive developments in his wake. On the one hand, Saturn is very stabilizing. On the other, his lessons can be tough, and jarring, and pretty much final. You, Capricorn, are actually lucky in that Saturn is your ruler, so you (along with Aquarius) are best equipped of all the signs to handle Saturn’s influence.
Your 1st house rules personality, identity, freedom, and personal initiatives, and it can also point to relationship happenings since it is exactly 180 degrees across from your relationship house. Again, it seems that issues of relationships and identity are emphasized, and again it seems that something important is coming to a head this month.
Again, you could get married or engaged or discover a pregnancy at this time, however it’s also possible you’re actually ending a close relationship. If you’ve been separated and working out the terms of a divorce settlement, it might come to a head this month. Any break up seems final at this time.
Alternatively, it could be that some kind of personal initiative- perhaps a work or creative project- comes to a head, and whatever it is is at odds with relationship needs. I say this because the eclipse will oppose the North Node, Venus and Mercury in your 7th house of relationships. If this is the case, try to strike a balance.
Luckily, the eclipse will also reach out happily to Neptune in your commitment house, so it seems any agreements made at this time will be beneficial.
One other big thing to note this month is Mercury's retrograde in Leo and then Cancer from July 7th to 31st. Leo rules your 8th house of finances, and Cancer rules your 7th house of relationships. This is further indication that relationships will see changes this month.
I think that whatever news the solar eclipse brings to you about relationships will force you to reshuffle other aspects of your life, and Mercury’s retrograde will help you review and revise things for the rest of the month. If possible try not to commit to anything too permanent during this time, as information will be changing rapidly (although with the lunar eclipse conjunct saturn, it seems hard to avoid permanence this month!)
In fact, the month could bring challenges to your finances, as planets enter your 8th house of Leo and square Uranus in your 5th house of love, children, and fun. It’s possible a child, leisure event, or creative endeavor proves expensive. July 11th and 29th could be tricky days.
Luckily, Mars will make a nice, juicy trine to Jupiter on July 25th, linking your finance and closure zones, and possibly bringing good money news your way.
In fact, there will be a new moon in Leo on August 1st, possibly sweeping funds to you!
