Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19)
Capricorn: I’m curious how this year is shaping up for you Capricorn, since the Eclipses entered the Cancer-Capricorn axis last year. There was the Solar Eclipse around your birthday in January earlier this year, and whatever broke open then has gained enough traction, tension, and even ease to warrant a new breaking open this July. There will be a Total Solar Eclipse on July 2ndat 10 degrees Cancer and so most of all affecting those Capricorns with a rising degree at 10 degrees Capricorn or 5 degrees within this point, as well those born around the first week of January. This Moon eclipsed by the Sun is loosely opposite your ruler, Saturn, in your own house of self, with the Moon rising in your house of relationship. Also a positive arrangement is made between the Sun, Moon and Uranus, currently in Taurus and a part of your chart which has to do with creativity, and expressing yourself, and joy. They are very romantic aspects, even with Saturn involved, though Saturn tends to slow down, and over-scrutinize. Yet, Saturn, that misunderstood, ringed planet is paramount for any relationship, providing the glue, the grit to dig one’s heels on and remain for the hard times, as well as a profound and sincere desire structure. So you have the recipe here for lasting and deeply affecting romance coming to you, if you’re free of that at the moment, with Uranus throwing all the spontaneity, glitter, and intensity you need from the house of gaiety and love of life. If you’re already attached then there’s likely some new period dawning upon you, a deepening of your ties, or the having of a child even. That fifth house also rules having children. Then on July 16ththere will be a Partial Lunar Eclipse in your own sign at 24 degrees Capricorn, within range of Saturn, but close, close with Pluto in your house of self, also very loosely opposite Venus in your house of others. So this is an intense pairing. It will involve the intensity of your feelings for your partner or someone else, but your partner will function more as a light reflecting back to you. You go through a process of heavy self-assessment or self-crisis here, for Pluto, with its long stay in Capricorn, has been as it were uprooting your personality, forcing you to deal with all your repressed minutiae, and calling upon you to be more integrative with your deepest, more unspoken feelings. To let them show, to not be afraid to embody your deepest feeling self. With Pluto, events, other people, and our own wills tend to almost trigger implosion. When Pluto is very intrinsic, then every matter appears very fated, heavy, with great, emotional weight and profound being. There is psychic power with Pluto, sight, and depth of experience acquired. Another notch on your belt of experience is what you can call this July. Mercury will be Retrograde, too, from the 8th, so your partner will receive plenty of witty banter from you and back and forth tete-a-tete, and those closest to you will, but it’s really a month of inward thought, intimacy, and stacking your deck.
