Powerful Mars gains a little bit of tact from its pairing with gracious Libra on October 3, which benefits you in most areas of your life. It’s nice to win arguments using gentle reasoning rather than being looked at as “the bad guy” for using more forceful tactics. A sun-Saturn square on the seventh brings tests and challenges, but that’s how you grow, Capricorn. Looking back on your life, didn’t you feel best after you overcame major obstacles? Don’t let the restrictions you’re under now keep you down. You were born to rise above them! The Aries full moon on October 13 encourages you to act rather than sit back and watch something happen, which can help you make a lot of much-needed changes. Combined with your practical determination, this can be a very productive time. Focus on finishing current projects before starting new ones. You crave close companionship during the loving Venus-Saturn sextile on the twentieth, looking for a bigger commitment from a current lover or wanting to get closer to your crush. The key to this transit is being patient, though, because anything forced now most likely won’t have long-term potential.

Are you ready for new opportunities? The Mercury-Uranus trine on September 1 opens new doors, and all you have to do is walk through them. Be sure to keep an open mind if someone pitches you a new business idea. You might have to hear it a couple times before you become intrigued. You might agree to take on more responsibility during the sun-Saturn trine on the sixth, but you also might regret biting off more than you can chew. Try to start small and work your way up to bigger projects so things don’t become too overwhelming. The Mars-Saturn trine on September 9 is the perfect time to take on a project you’re passionate about, as is surrounding yourself with people who admire what you do and how well you do it. “Yes men” are everywhere. Right now you need people who support you but also tell you when you veer off in the wrong direction. Logic and mental agility are favored during the Mercury-Saturn square on the twenty-second, but you might have a hard time communicating your ideas and plans when the thoughts come too rapidly. Avoid important negotiations until you’re confident you can express your ideas accurately and thoughtfully.

The challenge of the Venus-Uranus square on August 2 is how to balance your increased need for excitement and newness with the things you must deal with on an everyday basis. Every moment can’t be filled with “wow,” but there’s nothing wrong with celebrating the extraordinary among the ordinary. Communicative Mercury leaves sensitive Cancer for outgoing Leo on the eleventh, which gives you a chance to announce your intentions loudly and clearly. If you’ve been feeling taken advantage of lately, this is the perfect moment to reclaim your time and let people know you aren’t going to take it anymore. Aggressive Mars enters productive Virgo on August 18, and it’s time to get rid of the excess. Clean. Straighten. Toss out the things you don’t need. Be sure to recycle, repurpose, or give away anything that someone else might still be able to use. Your trash is someone else’s treasure! The sun enters practical Virgo on the twenty-third, highlighting medical conditions and health-related situations. If you’re dealing with any health issues now, be your own advocate. Virgo rules a healthy lifestyle, and it’s important that you stand up for yourself in all health-related matters now. The intuitive sun-Uranus trine on August 29 helps guide you toward things in your life you never knew were missing. Trying something new during this transit can be a revelation. Why have you never tasted creole food or gone line dancing before?! Exciting discoveries await!

Your home planet Saturn is retrograde in your own practical sign all month, making this a great time to outline your future goals. What do you want from life and how can you best obtain it? Put on your thinking cap and start preparing for the future. Lovely Venus teams up with compassionate Cancer on July 3, so for the next four weeks you’re a more giving friend, family member, and lover. When you put yourself in someone else’s shoes, it’s easier to understand their actions. The gentle Cancer sun opposes Saturn on the ninth, dimming your energy and blocking self-expression. Do you feel like you can’t let people know who you really are? Fear of rejection is very real right now. The full moon and partial lunar eclipse in your sign on July 16 can be a dark time, especially if you feel emotionally exposed and/or helpless. For someone who’s used to having all the answers, this isn’t a good position to be in. Rely on your common sense when your gut feeling fails you. The sun-Mercury conjunction in sensitive Cancer on July 21 helps communication flow. If you haven’t expressed your true feelings in a while, it might feel like the floodgates are opening. Remember that you’re in control even when it doesn’t feel like you are.
