Horoscope for the Week of Aug 2nd:
We’ve got two particular planets in aspect with each other; two planets, when combined, make a significant impact. Saturn and the Sun are together at opposite ends of the sky, which can stir up polar opposite extremes in behavior. This means that the Earth is between the Sun and Saturn during this time. We will all find ourselves at the mercy of extremes; it will be a huge flip-flop, but it will help you gain perspective on things that will bring maturity and grace. Let’s take a look at where this unique aspect takes place in your chart:
You feel as though you’re finally finding yourself within the context of a relationship. It may have felt that you were having a hard time getting lost while with this person, but you’re finding your way out of the situation, to the point to where you’re gaining back your autonomy. There are boundaries that you are enforcing right now, especially if you’re encroached upon. And don’t forget to let your friend know that you have needs too, that need to be met.
All about Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorn is the Boss, manager and CEO, and that’s where he/she likes to be. Right on top of the heap. And no matter what, Capricorn will take the time that is necessary to get there. No matter how long it takes. Capricorn is taking off where Sagittarius left off – when Sagittarius is getting all the education, Capricorn is using it to further itself in the corporate world.
These folks are concerned with results. The results are geared by the element, earth. They have to make sure that all the results produced are in the here and now, and practical form. To say that an idea, or feeling or something they are passionate about is a goal attained, that isn’t enough. There has to be a physicality involved – that results are tangible and very real.
Capricorn’s ruler is Saturn. Saturn truly is the ruler of time and aging. When we’ve committed to something, we will put a time frame around it, to make sure that all facets of that project will happen. Saturn is the adult planet meaning that being an adult and acting in a mature way is much more preferred than acting out like a child. Saturn is an old man, having earned his stripes eons ago, and doesn’t have patience for silly activities. These things all apply to Capricorn. Capricorns aren’t that emotional, verbal and passionate, but they can be counted on to be consistent and stable in the face of everything else.
Associated body part: Skeletal system and the knees. Capricorn/Saturn is the sign that represented the outer structure of the human body. The skeletal system somehow represents that. The knees support the upper body.
The issues of challenges. Because it seems as though Capricorn is fully committed to the career, on all levels, you’ll find that they seem fairly rigid in their thinking and way of doing things. And they would be workaholics.
The issues of joy. When all the ideas come together, when a goal is achieved and met, when hard work equals results, then the rewards are many. Capricorns go for the setting of the goal and meeting it. And, let’s face it, making it up that long ladder to success.
