Fiery Mars retrograde returns to your sign on the 12th, dear Capricorn, but that’s no reason to freak out.
What is awesome about your life right now? … How about the fact that you’re three poops into Operation Potty Chair and the kid is really starting to get it?
Focus on what’s working and you will avoid the emotional landmines of August. Mars may be known as the god of war, but it’s not all that serious this time. He’s just putting the final touches on any lessons you’ve recently learned around impatience. You know, like how to not lose your mind when you wind up in Costco’s slow lane with two squirrelly kids on a scorching Saturday afternoon. Things will chill out by month’s end.
Venus in Libra squares Saturn in Capricorn on the 10th, threatening to unleash the kind of relationship turbulence that has the potential to completely zap your energy, but only if you allow yourself to get sucked into the drama.

You can even make it fun for yourself by getting a little wild with your wardrobe or goosing up the breakfast menu.

Mars goes direct in your sign on the 27th, giving a new financial strategy the bump it needs to get some momentum going, which is a huge relief. Progress may be slow at first, but persistence and your infamous determination will put you on track for ending the year on a high note. You got this.
Your mantra for the month of August is: Fly low. Fly slow. If I don’t stop, I’ll get there.More On
