Capricorn July 2018 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


The good news is that the personal and/or relationship tension that may have come to a head late last month is already dropping back and while the message remains just as important, the delivery will become more subtle. That message was a need for balance between your personal and relationship needs, at a time of year when it is normally more about your relationships. The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of July in your relationship sector and halfway between your last birthday month and the next, this is often a time when your own needs are forgotten.

Not this year. As was the case when Venus and Mercury returned to your relationship sector, it was to find not only Pluto in opposition in Capricorn, but for the first time in three decades Saturn as well. Since 2008 Pluto has been defending a need for balance, but not in the way that Saturn can police. It was Saturn’s opposition with the Sun during a Full Moon in Capricorn late last month that really brought things to a head. Yet with the message delivered, this won’t be repeated and it is more that there will be a watchful eye on a balance between your personal and relationship needs.

In the meantime, a solar eclipse in Cancer on the 13th July is exciting and suggests the element of fate is in play. This brings the potential for major new beginnings, either at the time or down the line. In the meantime, there is a lot of focus on money this month, both on the income front and when it comes to money matters as a whole. While it is normal to focus on money matters at this time of year, having Mars not only in your income sector but in retrograde motion, is a game changer. This gives you access to the past, second chances and untapped income potential.

Love 2017Capricorn July 2018 Love Horoscope

The solar spotlight is always on your relationships at this time of year, due to the fact that the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of July in your relationship sector. With Venus and Mercury both been and gone, the Sun is on his own until he too leaves on the 23rd July. This will bring all planetary activity on the relationship front for the year to a close, but there is a lot of water to pass under the bridge before then. The Moon’s visit from the 12th July to the 14th July was always going to create a New Moon.

Whether single, in a relationship or between relationships, this is the point during the Sun’s visit at this time every year, when you’re able to commit to your relationships, the future and the journey ahead. However, this will be no ordinary New Moon, but a solar eclipse, the first here in your relationship sector since 2011. Eclipses aren’t random and the first since the North Node, who won’t return until November, is drawing close. This could trigger some serendipitous and unexpected new relationship developments, the full implications of which might not fully reveal themselves until later in the year.

In the meantime, there are some exciting developments on the romantic front as well, with Juno returning to your romantic sector on the 1st July. Returning for the first time in four years, the queen of commitment returns to team up with Uranus for the first time here since 1940. Where Uranus operates through the laws of synchronicity and through a sense of spontaneity, Juno brings a new sense of commitment and resolve. The Moon’s return from the 8th July to the 10th July will give you your first sense of the dynamics this creates.

Money 2017Capricorn July 2018 Money Horoscope

To move into July and find planetary activity in your financial sector is not the norm but it is not entirely unexpected. However, to move into July to find planetary activity on the income front is anything but the norm and can only happen if something extraordinary is in play. While the Sun doesn’t return to your financial sector until the 23rd July, it is common to find Venus or Mercury already here or at least returning ahead of the Sun. This year you have both, with Venus having returned in mid June and Mercury in the final days of June.

Together they are giving you a chance to have heart and head in the game, with Venus able to fuel your financial confidence and attract opportunities, while Mercury’s smart head for money allows you to keep your head in the game. Venus will leave on the 10th July, but Mercury will not only stay on, but will turn retrograde on the 26th July. With the Sun here from the 23rd July, this will bring a chance to head back to the drawing board ahead of next month’s solar eclipse.

It is on the income front that you have something extraordinary in play and that something is Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos. Just to have Mars here at this time of year is rare, having last been here as you moved into July in 1971, which was also the last time he turned retrograde here. This is why, after six weeks instead of leaving last month he turned retrograde and is therefore still here. Mars will retrograde out next month, but will hold the doors open to the past, second chances and untapped income potential all month. Especially around the time of a total lunar eclipse in your income sector on the 28th July, which could create some unexpected and/or major developments on the income front.

Career 2017Capricorn July 2018 Career Horoscope

While there is no planetary activity in either of your two professional houses this month, this is what makes this such an important month. This is a transition month, a month where you get to stand back, catch your breath and finish up one chapter before you start the next. It was only on the 21st June that the Sun left your work sector, wrapping up two active months that had seen not only the Sun move through, but Venus and Mercury as well. Because the Sun doesn’t return to your career sector until the 23rd September each year, this should give you a three month gap or fire break between the two.

Instead, just six weeks and five days separate the Sun’s departure from your work sector last month and Venus’ return to your career sector on the 7th August. All planetary activity on the job front ended last month and new doors will open on the career front next month, with this month a chance to catch your breath between the two. What makes this even more important, is that while Venus returns to your career sector early next month for what should be a 24 to 25 day visit, she will instead spend the majority of the next four months there.

This also makes the Moon’s visits a lot more important this month, with its return to your work sector a chance to look back and to your career sector, a chance to look to the future. The Moon will move through your work sector from the 10th July to the 12th July and coming full circle from last month’s New Moon, this will be a chance to tie up loose ends. The Moon’s return to your career sector from the 18th July to the 20th July is the last before Venus returns. As the Moon fuels your professional instincts and imagination, this will bring a chance to start lining up in front of new doors before they open.
