Your planet Saturn is on the move this month as it retreats into Capricorn on the 2nd. Saturn has been out of your star sign since March 22nd but now it returns until the end of the year.
Therefore, you may be returning to events which happened back in March, perhaps to bring something to completion. Or, returning to a job, situation or role which you had earlier this year.
Saturn is the planet of authority and discipline, duty and responsibility. Consider where you might need to flex these qualities within yourself or where you may be required to take on a leading or caring role.
Capricorn Lunar Eclipse
Saturn’s move into Capricorn coincides with a powerful Lunar or Full Moon eclipse on the 5th. This also falls in your star sign and completes an important eclipse cycle which began in July 2018 cutting across the Cancer/Capricorn axis of the zodiac.
Consider how far you’ve come since then, what’s changed and how you’ve changed in particular. When planets light up your star sign, Capricorn, this is about your identity, how you see yourself and how others see you, your image and profile.
Partnership has also been an important part of the Cancer/Capricorn eclipse cycle and this month’s events feel definitive. You might be putting into practise what you’ve learned over recent years. Or, making a major decision about a love relationship or a business partnership. This can influence all your significant 1-to-1’s.
Wait until the 12th, however, before issuing an ultimatum or making a key decision. This is the date that Mercury, the planet of communication, turns direct in Cancer after three weeks on go slow.
This often coincides with new information coming to light, which is why it’s wise to play a waiting game. You could hear from someone on or around the 12th and this influences your next move.
For some of you, a love affair could spring to life this month and the dates to note are the 1st and 22nd. In fact, things could develop and happen quickly. There’s a New Moon in Cancer and your relationship sector on the 20th.
This is the second of two New Moons in this part of your horoscope. The first took place on June 21st during the Solstice and it was a Solar Eclipse.
Traditionally, New Moons are a symbol of new beginnings. However, on the 20th, your planet Saturn opposes the Sun in Cancer. This feels more like an ending. Or, something you need to finish before you can start afresh.
The period from the 14th to the 20th is swayed heavily towards your star sign Capricorn. This could be a challenging period if you’re having to make some tough decisions that impact on other people.
If you feel disillusioned by your situation or recent events, turn to people close to you for support or solace. The Jupiter-Neptune aspect on the 27th is key for you as Jupiter is now in Capricorn.
This combination helps to restore hope and faith and it’s an ideal time to seek solace beyond the everyday. This could be a spiritual path, your religious faith or your belief in the goodness of humanity and other people.
Allow your imagination and dreams to soar far and wide and tap into the side of your nature that’s charitable, caring & philanthropic.
If you’re at work, enjoy being part of a team. Venus in Gemini brings the feel-good factor to your daily routine, especially if you’re hanging out with other women.
If you’re keen to improve your finances, the Sun’s move into Leo on the 22nd lights up your joint finance sector. This is the time to pursue new deals or contracts.
Mars & Home
Finally, Mars is moving through Aries and your home and family sector. This is going to be a long transit of Mars through this part of your horoscope – perhaps you’ve got the builders in or you’re working on a long-term project.
If anything, life at home is likely to be noisier and any tensions could flare up and quickly. The key dates to note are the 8th and 27th which feel argumentative. Try not to get involved in petty disputes with your partner or someone else close to you.
If you do want to move home or catch up with family you haven’t seen, Mars in Aries stokes the fires and adds drive and a sense of urgency to your personal affairs.
