July 2020 Monthly Horoscope for Capricorn
July is all about social interaction and relationships for you, Capricorn. Just recently, you have entered into a yearly peak in your romantic and social sectors. Because you like to keep things professional, you aren’t usually the type to delve into your emotions. This month, you’ll need to open up so you can receive valuable support and resources from others. The delays and distractions of the retrograde planets are nothing new. But the Universe encourages you to get moving now. For the first half of the month, eclipses and lunar energy purify and detox your body. As it stands, you’ll want to focus on your health and your appearance. What can you change to improve how others see you? That is the question of July, but your disciplined nature ensures you’ll stand tall no matter the changes you’re called to make.
Once again, you feel the need to redefine your ideas of commitment, love, and romance. You may be re-evaluating your current partnership. Alternatively, you could be single with your eye on a potential new partner. Whatever the case, with your ruler Saturn moving retrograde through your first house of identity from the 1st until the end of September, you’re changing your views. You're rethinking the way you present yourself in light of the destabilization of your body. Yes, you’re testing your ability to recreate your identity and your persona. It might be hard to let go of the things you’ve associated with yourself, but doing so brings space for you to create what you’d really like to see.
On the 5th, a powerful full moon lunar eclipse puts a spotlight on your seventh and first houses. Issues with a romantic or business partner demand your care and attention. Relationship imbalances are uncomfortably illuminated, and you’re likely to find there is a disparity in power. This moon is the last eclipse of the Capricorn-Cancer axis, signaling the end of a cycle that began in January of 2019.
Have you finally learned how to balance your wants and needs with the wants and needs of your partner? If not, you’re going to have to learn to compromise. Alternatively, this could be a time where you bulldoze through any opposition. Regardless, now is the time to consider both sides.
The demands of your personal life are taking priority, but there is a nurturing dynamic at play with the retrograde of asteroid Ceres on the 7th. As she turns inward in Pisces and your third house of communication, it’s time to evaluate your need for control of the conversation.
You’re used to enforcing your way because you believe your plan is the best, but sometimes that effort may not be worth it. At least until the 12th, it may be best to let others have their say as long as it doesn’t directly tie into your reputation.
Childhood identity wounds and issues of belonging are at hand around the 11th. Chiron’s retrograde in your fourth house will remind you of the wounds you suffered in your early life. These painful memories come to the surface from now until September, but they are working for your healing and growth. Can you find healing in your emotional wounds? This month, spend time looking at what makes you feel secure and “at home” in your body and in your environment.
From the 12th through the 20th, the rocky relationship atmosphere changes for the better. Now that Mercury has stationed direct in your seventh house, you find the ability to communicate with those you hold dear. You are drawn to agreement and compromise in your partnerships now. This is the perfect time to negotiate and mediate as you’re able to win over partners with your newfound persuasion.
Things are looking, even more, promising by the New Moon in Cancer on the 20th. If you’re in a relationship, this moon brings a fresh start. For single Capricorns, this is a great time to start a new partnership. Even if you aren’t looking for changes in love, this powerful new cycle will be bringing you the opportunity to begin something great by working one-on-one with someone of your caliber.
In the last week of July, evaluate your approach to intimacy and cooperation with others. Once you are able to channel your hard-working talents into your relationships, you’ll find that others have quite a lot to offer you – in business, romance, and even education.
Although your finances are flourishing now, your health may need more attention until the 22nd. After the sun enters Leo and your eighth house, the focus shifts. Now that you’ve gotten your physical wellbeing in order, you’ll be increasing your income through other people.
A positive sextile between benefic Jupiter in your sign and Neptune in your third house promises good fortune. Rather than handling business by yourself, you head into August with a keen understanding of how others can help you reach your goals.
