August Horoscopes

by Henry Seltzer

Capricorn Capricorn Horoscope (December 22 - January 19)
Cardinal Earth. Your ruling planet is Saturn.

The pace of change continues unabated, and in some ways looms even larger, Capricorn, although you also might feel like you are getting used to it by now. You are in any case starting to put your money where your mouth is, having no real choice but to fully embrace radical transformation and all that it entails. The events of the past two years could come to some kind of culmination over the course of this present month. You are now occupying center stage of your universe and your professional life, and yet inner revelations continue to inform your world. Later in the month you are rethinking your position, but no matter how much you mentally rearrange it's clear that you're just not in Kansas anymore.

As the month begins, you are raring to go, with loads of energy for business and other pursuits. You are also feeling the pressure of evolutionary change that is still upon you, stemming from as far back as 2008, when Pluto entered your sign, and definitely quite a bit accelerated by the planetary tides of this climactic summer. At the time of the Last Quarter Moon of Monday, August 2nd, your metamorphosis is once more highlighted as your ruler Saturn, aided and abetted by fiery and energetic Mars, squares Pluto while remaining poised in your natural sector of career and outer world accomplishment. Even as you remain fully out there in the world, and taking care of business almost as usual, you are going through a desperate internal dance. The caterpillar is morphing in its cocoon and nearing the delicate, gauzy goal. But as the former skeleton dissolves within the chrysalis state it's just not that much fun for the caterpillar. With the advent of the New Moon of the following week, taking place on Monday, August 9th, there is fresh energy for your process of growth and change, and also for the possibility of fresh wrinkles to be discovered in how that actually looks and feels to you down in the trenches of your real life situation. This month, and especially this middle part of it, serves to expose the essential polarities of your situation. There is a tremendous urge to go wild in new-found and unstable directions as well as support for your more conservative desire to stay the course and hold the line. Between these alternatives there is no possible compromise, which can tend to make you miserable, but if you relax and let go and let god, as they say, you can come to a form of peace. The key is to let the paradox be and choose to ignore the seeming inconsistencies, charging them up to human nature. The First Quarter Moon of Monday, August 16th is another potent time, which might serve to emphasize both the difficulties of your current path and also the saving benevolence of the cosmos. You are attempting something important but it is taking place at a relatively deep level of your psyche, so that it is tricky to detect with your conscious mind exactly what is going on. There is resolution to be found in a dream-like way of looking at things, and in acceptance that you are on some kind of right track. Then the Full Moon another week later, taking place on Tuesday, August 24th, represents another powerful juncture, when your communication is again filled with fruitful ambiguity. Your situation is poignant and difficult but also livable, and it defies logical thinking. The more you try to catch it in a mental bottle, the more it gracefully slips away.
