Saturn in Retrograde is always big for you Capricorn, as your ruling planet this backwards motion is your part of the year to take a bit of a personal breather when it comes to added responsibilities and self-mastery.  This time-out or internal processing ends on July 8th as Saturn goes Direct and you with your second wind get to finally start advancing again where personal goals, your own identity, needs, image, brand, or body are concerned.  Take the lead and initiate slow and steady growth built on solid foundations.

The 8th is big for another reason too, it is the NEW MOON in Cancer and opens up your best 2 week window to move things forward or take things to the next level via a romantic or business partner, agent, attorney, specialist, your clients, or dealing with the competition.  What is going on at home or with real estate, family, moves, or roommates may color what you initiate now.

If you need an added boost here it comes as Mars moving into Cancer on the 13th.  His presence here in the weeks ahead will either bring a younger male onto the scene that can help motivate or it will just amp up the fire, passion and drive to further your cause with these key relationships.  You may have more fight going on as well which if aimed correctly can benefit, just use caution that you aren’t being too aggressive with these important relationships.

Uranus Retrogrades on the 17th and the unpredictable, up and down energy that has been spurring you on to make changes and innovate at home, with a move, real estate, family, a parent, or roommates eases up a bit.  You are meant to be a bit of a maverick or visionary over these years in these arenas but now you get some time to catch up to where you find yourself and do some internal processing so you are ready for the next big round at year’s end.  You may have one last jolt of excitement or change as he shifts today.

The GRAND TRINE that is bringing growth and stability to areas of everyone’s life this summer perfects between July 17th and 20th.  This period is great for expansion involving partners, reps, clients, and other important relationships and may be tinged with Jupiter themes of legal, travel, educational, wedding, or media interests.  It will bring solid footing to aspirations or anything involving friends, groups, the internet, astrology, charities, or social gatherings and potentially something sexually charged, good for the divorce or financial picture.  And it will inspire through talks, meetings, writing, agreements, offers, sales, and short trips.

MERCURY goes DIRECT on the 20th so the backtracking, reworking, releasing, or reconnecting you’ve done over past romantic or business partners, agents, attorneys, specialists, clients, competitors, or other key relationships and your choices, offers, agreements, sales, writing, or decisions there ends.  You should have an idea now where you stand or how you feel differently and are ready to move ahead after today in new directions with or without them.

The 22nd will be quite the big day.  First, Mars and Jupiter embrace, you may even feel this one on the 21st as it builds to today, and it will be about big action involving that romantic or business partner, rep, client, competitor, specialist, or other key player.  This will push things in new directions, open up passions and may tie in Jupiter themes with them of legal, wedding, media, educational, or travel plans.

Next, Venus moves into Virgo where she begins transiting over the next weeks smoothing things out for you in those legal, travel, educational, media, or wedding arenas and should help you to attract love or income more easily by these means.  A woman may arrive on the scene that is beneficial to you here during this period.

Third, the Sun moves into Leo where he puts a spotlight on you and your sex life, divorce or any major financial interests you are pursuing.  This lasts the next 30 days and is your time to pour more personal or physical energy here, stand out, take the lead, and be recognized.

Finally, today, the 22nd, is the FULL MOON in Aquarius.  This brings a peak around earned income, possessions, acquisitions, and values.  You will see things hitting a high note in achievements, celebrations or endings regarding these themes.  Your aspirations and social connections will flavor what culminates here.

Venus will be active again on the 26th so note that on this day you will be dealing with women, love or income and any legal, travel, media, marketing, publishing, educational, or wedding needs in the mix.  This will put you one-on-one with someone over meetings, agreements, sales, writing, short trips, or decisions and either go on behind the scenes or work your imagination.  It will also open up some serious opportunity to end or commit to things involving a friend, group, the internet, astrology, a charity, social networking, or some gathering under positive stars.

The end of July is due to be wildly active and possibly intense.  Between the 27th and 31st Mars is going to gear it up and the action, passion, anger, or fighting spirit he invokes will come out of or involve your romantic or business partner, agent, attorney, specialist, competition, opponent, or client.  This is about making things happen and will trigger the Uranus/Pluto square which means something about you is being affected.  Look to your body, image, identity, name, brand, or personal goals changing or evolving, that sex, reproduction, someone’s passing, a divorce, or some big financial matter will drive this for you.  That you’ll be one-on-one with this person over changes and be ready to shake things up or deal with last minute changes involving home, moves, real estate, family, a parent, roommates, or your security needs.  Keep these days as free as you can to be ready to tackle so much energy!  If you have reached the point where you want to know how all this is affecting your unique energy patterns in your birth chart and what that means for your opportunities and overcoming obstacles, you can email Zoe to get rates and dates for a private reading at
