Diana's Monthly Capricorn Forecast for August 2015
Until the 23rd is a gear-shifting phase, but you‘ll probably be feeling your way forwards as you intuitively sound things out. You may have to be more conscious of another’s side of things. You may also be weighing up what another’s side of things is in a financial, legal or moral sense. You could be musing over some deeper questions, but answers will come more through intuition than the intellect. Transition will occur when, through mutual action with, or challenge from another, your value structure (and instinct) tells you what is the right thing to do.
Until the 8th you may also be weighing up what your and another’s side of things is in a financial, legal or moral sense. You could be feeling more sensitive or simply have to be more sensitive to another’s side of things.
Maybe you are mulling over some deeper questions, or researching. Answers will come more through intuition than the intellect. Transition will occur when, through mutual action with, or challenge from another, your value structure (and instinct) tells you what is the right thing to do.
8th-28th Mercury is expanding your mind and you should be entertaining options outside of the box. Discussions and or paperwork could be related to travel, higher learning or another type of unfamiliar environment. You’ll tend to be thinking bigger and becoming more aware of fresh potential, or a distant horizon. A plan may be forming in your mind. This could be a good time to refresh your mental palette and think in bright new colours. Maybe there is a breath of fresh air from further afield or guidance from those with specialist knowledge or just someone with a refreshing slant on things. Mercury enjoys this communicative sector which also emphasizes higher learning, publications and the legal side of things. Another way this transit might work is you take the opportunity to beat the drum about something, get the word out, be the guide or the guided, the informer or the informed.
PLOTS AND PLANS
From the 28th discussions, correspondence and ideas may revolve around short-term plans or longer term considerations like where you are going from here in life. Career, worldly responsibilities, or bureaucracy could be highlighted. You may find your goals and schemes are being validated or rejected by the by the way things are unfolding across the wider stage – so keep your ear to the ground. You will be putting mental effort into expressing yourself in the best way you can so as to get the result you desire. Vehicles, transport or communications equipment may also be on your mind.
Apart from July 19th-August 1st when she tends to bring positive interactions with others in relationship or negotiations, Venus is in a place of emotional depth and something can touch your feelings deeply, or you can move others – great for the romantics and artists among you but also regarding material resources which come through another. Formally or informally things may become more intimate or ’involved’. Venus here could also manifest as a relationship helping you out materially or supporting you emotionally in major or minor ways. So, a good time to acquire and use resources to benefit your joint material interests with others. Negotiations could go in your favour and there could be deeper, more rewarding bonds with another. Some of you may feel like shifting into more commitment in a material or emotional sense – depending on your natal chart and on your own ability to create what you want. Also, a relationship could revolve around a shared space, possessions or property but things can be ironed out to mutual advantage.
Until the 9th Mars in your opposite sign means personal or professional exchanges are likely to be more dynamic and lively. Because of the agenda of another, there are more physical demands put upon you to be decisive or take action. You and someone could elicit strong opinions in each-other or, conversely, maybe you feel a strong pull towards someone or they feel a strong pull towards you. Once again patience may be needed as Mars here can make you too hasty, handle someone badly, throw caution to the winds, or make a false start. So the advice would be to try to keep things on an even keel and don’t dive in head first at full revs with all guns blazing before you are sure of your ground.
From the 9th Mars is in the sector of your solar chart which clears the decks for new beginnings. So one manifestation may be a declutter, letting go or regenerating an ailing or stale situation. Whether it’s a re-think, a detox or a Spring Clean, this Mars position means coming up against pre-existing conditions, behaviours or requirements which provoke an inner shift and emotions drive an outer change. You could be intensely aware of the feeling or needs of others at times and you may have to bite your tongue or be more confidential or shrewd.
Debts due or owed (moral or otherwise) may need a more decisive approach or maybe someone is being more assertive – even coercive – towards you. You’ll probably have to feel your way rather than ´think´ your way, and even though you are aware of others’ feelings , values or expectations, you want to stick up for yourself , and be true to your own values and inner nature. You are looking for a win/win solution but listening with your inner ear and seeing with your third eye.
You’ll tend not to want to put all your cards on the table with some people.
A FRESH PERSPECTIVE
New potentials are in the wind from the 23rd. The Sun is in a more outgoing, expansive area tending to raise the spirits as you see fresh possibilities outside of the routine box. Time to make plans or launch into projects. Some of you may have itchy feet, and with the vibrations increasing opportunities to escape the daily grind, this is a good time to get out and about more and try new things.
Saturn is now in a more helpful angle to your Sun sign. This means you can be more successful if you put a steady flow of energy into networking, group connections, friendships, a hierarchy or a social circle. Finding your place in the pecking order might be slow or you become disenchanted with the old order, but if you accept that you can only integrate or make improvements gradually, you can rise up the levels as you slowly establish yourself. This is a time for progress, but steady as you go forwards.
Capricorns born 17th-21st January or with from 27 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
MORE TO PLAY WITH
Until the 11th Jupiter will be putting a beneficial emphasis onto your joint financial area. Materially, your life could grow and expand through the contribution of key associations or a partnership. So this can mean more money, possessions or improved physical conditions made available to you, or that you find it easier to access them through a key relationship.
It may be a different financial strategy or set-up becomes a useful resource and it may be some kind of moral debt settled or financial debt is repaid.
A LEARNING CURVE
From the 11th, Jupiter will be working happily out of his own house in your solar chart – the ninth. You will have the opportunity to push the envelope of life as your mental/physical territory broadens and teaches you new things. Growth can also come through travel, foreign connections, wider communications through the spoken or written word, another language or academia. Also education – at times viewed as the teacher, the advisor, or guide is more likely. This is a great vibration for broadcasting on to a grander stage, but also for getting involved in publishing, politics, legal issues or communications media. This is an expansive phase and the boundaries of your known world will stretch into new fields of endeavour.
Early Capricorns and Capricorn rising or those born from 17th January or with 27 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
Uranus: Capricorns born 9th-12th January or with 19-21 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
Pluto: Capricorns born 2nd-5th January or with 12-14 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.

What today looks like:
Beginning today, and ending on Saturday, the Moon is clashing with Saturn. The Moon present in the sign of Aquarius may mean a quirky, individualistic need in your area of values, money, and personal belongings. It may be awkward to buy something you've wanted for a long time, or buy something from or for a friend, while this trying, difficult connection continues.
As well: continuing today, and finishing on Tuesday, Mercury is collaborating with Uranus. Mercury sitting in the sign of Leo might mean your area of secrecy, shared resources, and sexuality is filled with a notion which is creative, and expressive. It may be good to renovate your home, or nurture joint finances, while this easy, natural connection continues.
Also today: starting today, and concluding on Monday, the Moon is moving through the sign of Pisces. For you, Capricornian, this means a period of three days where discussions, brief journeys, and your neighbourhood are more familiar, and feel safer to you. Our Moon, when in Pisces, provides an intuitive, contemplative need.
Also On This Day:
- Mars continues transiting Cancer until the 8th.
- The planet Venus carries on transiting Leo until the 8th of October.
- The Moon continues transiting the sign of Aquarius until Saturday.

Diana's 2015 Capricorn Forecast:
MERCURY RETROGRADES 3 times for approx 3 weeks each in 2015:
First retrograde on Jan 21st – February 11th – Aquarius 17-1 degrees
Second retrograde on 18th May – 11th June – Gemini 13-4 degrees
Third retrograde on 17th Sept – 9th October – Libra 15-0 degrees
THERE WILL BE 2 SOLAR ECLIPSES IN 2015:
The first Solar eclipse of the year occurs on March 20th in your 3rd/4th house.
This eclipse covering the next 6 months, could trigger the Mercury/Neptune vibe in early Pisces. Just make sure you don’t get the wrong end of the stick because thinking or a communication was unclear or you confuse someone with your own lack of clarity. Deliberately make sure you check and get confirmation on whatever is important to you either in a personal sense regarding feelings or in a professional one.
This is the time to begin making positive changes regarding siblings, or soul brothers and sisters. Also using your ability to express what you feel and think through a particular medium or get in touch with a certain person. This eclipse will also usher in positive change on the domestic front or with family or neighbours.
The second Solar eclipse of the year occurs on Sept 13th in your 9th house
This is the moment to plunge into a new environment which can teach you new things.
Astrologically speaking, as one of the Cardinal signs, there’s a lot of planetary action continuing to affect your Sun sign in 2015 with Uranus, Pluto continuing in close aspect until mid-April.
The Cardinal signs are the movers and shakers of the zodiac, and the way you handle what the universe is dishing up between 2011 and 2016, although it is generational, will, to an extent, set the precedent for what follows for us all further down the line…
Capricorn, with Uranus at the root of your chart until 2019 and Pluto in your sign for more years than that, conditions will arise which demand you carve out a new life for yourself from the ground up. That means certain behaviour traits and the role others are used to seeing you play will be changing as you align more closely with unconscious desires and face the ghosts of the past. Even though it may not feel like it at the time, it’s your choice what shape that future may become. Progress is likely to come through deeper insights or events which stir things up within and you should listen to that more ancient knowing which goes beyond ego or another’s expectations.
Venus will be in a long transit in 2015…
Venus will be in Leo between June 6th-Oct 9th which may be good news for you Capricorn as the potential abundance of Venus will benefit your joint financial area. You should do your best to make hay while the sun shines with joint finances or property matters with this fair cosmic wind blowing in your direction. You could do well in negotiations and get yourself a bargain during this transit. Someone could contribute useful advice or resources, or simply pick up the tab for you just when you need it. Make sure you realize this is a finite period in which you can do better if you play your cards right and do not expect things to stay the same forever. Overall you should feel more supported, emotionally or with other types of much needed resource or moral support. You should feel a deeper connection in a close relationship, and for some, this can be a sizzley time in your love-life.
Jupiter is in Leo until August 11th and in some ways this is when you are more likely to get goodies through the resources of another. So it’s a good time to pool resources through a partnership, receive funding, improve your property or your overall material situation because there is someone there who you can team up with. Somehow, during this transit there will be sweeping changes which enrich life which can be fortunate for you over time, but, in the process, you will have to let go of whatever may be interfering with a more rewarding life and that includes your own out-moded ways of seeing things. This is when you need to practice the art of allowing abundance to come to you. Jupiter in this area of your solar chart until 2015 could open the door to spiritual and emotional regeneration. It is a vibration which heals old wounds – if you allow it!
Capricorns born from mid-January or with from 23 degrees rising will feel the energy of Jupiter in Leo the most in 2015.
Jupiter moves into Virgo on August 11th
There should be more opportunities for long-distance travel, increased involvement with foreign lands, wider communications through the spoken or written word, languages or academia.
Seeking knowledge and expanding your perspective or, conversely, others seeking your guidance or expertise is a far more likely. There could be more involvement with the law, politics, or communications media and disseminating knowledge across a broader stage – an excellent time to become a writer for example. Your awareness and knowledge base will certainly grow during this expansive period. Your views on ‘life, the universe and everything’ will change and mature unless you waste the Jupiter energy by stubborn adherence to your old opinions. Jupiter, the ‘learning through doing’ planet wants to grow your consciousness beyond its old, limiting prejudices and beliefs.
Natives of your sign born up to mid-month or with up to 24 degrees rising will feel the energy of Jupiter in Virgo the most in 2015.
Saturn began her new cycle on Xmas Eve This new area is to do with finishing off a chapter of life rooted in the past. You could be experiencing the consequences of past actions which affect your physical health or general well-being at this time. Skeletons could be rattling in the closet. Rather than brood over past mistakes you should focus on clearing away the remains of the old life. Ditch whatever is getting in the way of your future happiness, seek healing for what ails you for the current of the river of time is propelling you into new beginnings. Having said that there are always elements of your history which are good to hold on to because they bring joy and fulfillment. It is for you to decide what stays and what goes but, whatever it is should be tied up in a neat bundle to keep or to let go.
There is much you can do for the common good at this time but first you have to start with looking after yourself more and observing behaviours which may have you falling down the same old hole in the road every time someone pushes that button.
Saturn returns to her previous position between June 14th-Oct 9th.
Saturn began its transit of Scorpio in on Oct 6th 2012 and is now in a much more helpful frame of mind related to your sun sign. Now you need to put a steady flow of energy into networking, group efforts, a hierarchy or a social circle. Finding your place in the pecking order might be problematical at times but if you accept that you can only establish yourself gradually, you can rise up the levels and over time, establish credibility, reliability and cultivate useful contacts who help you achieve your goals. Along the way you will encounter challenges as you strive to integrate your individual wishes with that of others. You could feel sidelined unless you find a way to compromise. But if you continue to be diligent and consistent in the obtaining of your ideals you should get the results you yearn for. So it’s not what you know but who you know, and how well you dove-tail your needs with theirs over this lengthy period. Capricorns born from 5th January or with from 15 degrees Capricorn rising will feel this energy the most over 2015.
Uranus continues at the root of your chart
Some ties with the past will be broken over the 7 year transit of Uranus here. There may be several changes of scene over 2015 if Uranus comes within range of an important point in your natal chart. Change and the breaking of familiar routines will be a governing factor and also this could affect the lives of kith and kin. Because of inner changes at the deepest level of your being, your foundations externally are rocked and you’ll have to adapt to different environment. You may feel ambushed from time to time but this is the spirit of revolution which facilitates your evolution and is part of a significant growth process even though it may be unpredictable at times. After the transit has passed you will be able to re-establish more settled living conditions but, when that time comes, priorities will have changed and you will feel free of stuck emotions or a too rigid environment.
Capricorns born 4th-14th January, or with between 11-21 degrees rising will feel this energy most potently in 2015.
The life-changing force of Pluto continues to be felt across your sign. Choices should be coming from a deeper place now. You’ll have an array of new options presenting themselves over the year to come -particularly in the first 6 months. You may be striving to project the most authentic version of yourself and what you stand for to others. You will feel more touchy about what you see as interference from others and there will be an urge to have more control over your environment.
Pluto is about power and how we use it and so, during this long transit, Capricorns will hopefully come to understand how to use that power for good and for what is best for them personally. Subconscious projections are bubbling up within you and may land upon unwitting others. You will be closer to the most primitive part of your knowing and to follow your gut instinct when making decisions. There may be a compulsion to turn the page, sweep aside the old order, overturn tradition but if this is not what is best for your personal evolution then you will have to turn your gaze within and uncover your own deeper motivations. You could become more interested in the occult or psychology or anything which helps you to regenerate your sense of self-identity. Over 2015 there will be an increasing urge for you to be free of outlived aspects in relationships or outmoded professional set-ups and be more true to yourself. Capricorns born 4th-9th January, or with between 11-16 degrees of Capricorn rising will feel this energy most strongly over 2015.
During the current transit of Neptune, some of you may become more interested in psychology, the occult or mysticism. Maybe you will develop your intuition, imagination or artistic ability. You may become interested in metaphysics, inter-dimensional travel or have telepathic experiences. You may have more strong dreams both night and day. You may discover that what you thought was written in stone and an absolute truth is an illusion, maybe a mass illusion. There may be some confusion and things turn out to be other than what you had imagined, so remember that doubt and skepticism are healthy so test out theories before deciding whether they are true. Your imagination and creative potential can be increased but avoid allowing fantasy to colour your ability to see what is real.
Early Capricorns born until 27th December-4th January or with 4-11 degrees of Capricorn rising will feel the effect of the Neptune vibration most in 2015.
