A solar eclipse opposing Pluto retrograde in Capricorn has you streamlining: FREEDOM! For your body, your self-esteem, and how much better you feel and see yourself in the world. Move clutter out of home and work space. Clear out clothes that no longer work. Weed out what needs to go with you – to move ALL the way forward. You’ll be deeply liberated – and happy – in your new role. You are ready for a sea change.
Business partnerships will be fantastic also this month, as long as you slow down to listen to (slower) others. AND behave like a U.N. diplomat. Bizarrely, those around you will be speaking SO much more slowly…
You feel all this beginning now because it’s so powerful! A full Moon approaches in your sign Tuesday, July 16, and this concerns you physically. If you’ve been worn down, now you get HOW severe it’s really been. (No, you were not making up any of those symptoms.) Oh. My. Gawd. This full Moon may even manifest a health scare to get you to look after your self better. Take a rest day. And promise me a new and better regimen of self-care from this point forward. No more damaging – and I must say it, pointless – self-sacrifice.
Remember your history. Remember all you’ve lived through. You know you deserve better, but, you’re TIRED. Tired of living through disappointment after disappointment. Too tired perhaps to think of yet another change. Appearing as just another step up that endless mountain. But LOVE AND HOPE always save you. Keep the faith, sweet Cappy.
Whatever it is, this July is not a normal month. It is a very DIFFERENT than usual month. This is because it has two eclipses in it. The first happens Tuesday, July 2, a total solar eclipse at 10 degrees and 38 minutes of Cancer. The eclipse point itself is sextile Uranus and opposing Saturn so expect the unexpected – and quite dramatically so – wherever you have Cancer in your chart. (If you don’t have any planets in Cancer, look at where Cancer appears on the outside of your chart.)
The U.S.A. cannot help but be, as Cancer Sun with Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter also in Cancer, powerfully affected by this eclipse. It will be felt most deeply on Independence Day.
For you, Capricorn – look at your seventh house (Cancer on the outside of your chart, also if you are Capricorn rising), ruling your marriage, partnerships, and close associations. These, no doubt, will have been affected already, but July 2 will be the rising wave, the culmination, the earthquake. In your most contractual areas, there will be an ending and a beginning, strongly felt, with no going back.
For everyone, needless to say, surgical operations are a big NO-NO during the eclipse, and particularly on areas ruled by Cancer: stomach, breasts, and ovaries. This includes cosmetic surgery such as liposuction, breast alteration, etc. This practice was first attributed to Hippocrates, the grandfather of modern medicine (physicians still have to take the Hippocratic Oath.)
The only other time to watch out for is two weeks later, on Tuesday, July 16, with the partial lunar eclipse full Moon in Capricorn. At this time, it is advisable not to have surgery, particularly on areas ruled by Capricorn: bones and teeth. Otherwise, there can be those “complications.”
You are no longer an island. In fact, your seventh house is practically imploding! You have in here:
Sharp-thinking Mercury (going into retrograde July 7 to July 310
Planet of love and beauty Venus as of Wednesday, July 3
That solar eclipse new Moon on Tuesday, July 2
And what all does your seventh house rule?
Your seventh house, traditionally ruled by partnership-oriented Libra, rules:
All partnerships – both in love and work
Bitter enemies in the open
Discussions about design, beauty, harmony
Your tendency to isolate must be worked with now: it’s a time for you and others. Accept invitations – even to talk on the phone – and plan a party so you can make invitations yourself.
You’ll be amazed at the results.
Is this a destined time, or what? July is a strong destiny period for you, dear Capricorn. You have reached an incredible point of evolution in your path and you have overcome many obstacles to be here.
Then here’s the best news of all: Love. And partnerships. You are finally ready to accept love into your life.
And new partnerships, new relationships. Single Capricorns, get out there. Attached Capricorns, renew your vows. You will even sign a new contract. Business partners as well. This will be very positive because the other bodies in this seventh house of partnerships are so positive.
It will also be an extremely romantic time. So enjoy, dear Capricorn!
And be careful what you wish for…because you will probably get it.
People go out of their way to please you and to meet your agreements and terms. You can basically write down a wish-list and make it your contract.
This explains why, despite feeling you never have a day off, there have been few rewards for your hard work. And the money situation hasn’t been exactly soothing, either.
Family members behave erratically and may change their minds at the last minute; be patient. Everyone’s going through their own – all too human – stuff.
As hard as the last one may be, it is up to you, dear Goat. You will need to be the peace initiator. As Shakespeare wrote in All’s Well That Ends Well:
Our remedies oft in ourselves do lie
Which we ascribe to heaven.
Look to yourself for the remedy; do not expect a rescue. You are a loyal and dear friend and you give a great deal. Make sure this is reciprocated in your partnerships, both in love and in business.
You deserve to keep a reputable reputation, and you do. Karmic Saturn – your wise beautiful ruler – is finally comfortable in the sign it rules – yours.
A reader wrote in and asked if I thought Capricorns had the hardest time (she is a Capricorn), and I had to say yes, next to Scorpio. Just in terms of pure endurance.
You climbed up that bare mountain – in the middle of winter – a long time.
Bravo for surviving and triumphing – and getting to the top of the mountain. You are a master of persistence. Thank God for you!
You are so loved, Capricorn! It makes me weep to see how much. It is a beautiful thing.
So those of you still going through life alone, it is time to let in the love. Let us love you, too.
Finally, and speaking of support, please remember: do not spend rashly, do not get luxurious. As broke as you can be, you do always have the nicest things – how is that?
You have the finest taste – there, I’ve said it. Capricorns have the finest taste. Then Libras, Virgos, and so on down the line.
It is the rare Capricorn who is slovenly – but I’ve known a few. One was my best friend. They are usually going through extreme bouts of depression, whether they know it or not. Unhealed. They do, eventually, heal and then are a joy to watch again.
Which you will be this July.
YOUR LUCKY DAYS Capricorn Sun and Capricorn Jupiter, your times of destiny are:
