Welcome to August, Capricorn. July left you frustrated as you adapted to changes to your job during a pandemic. The economic impacts COVID-19 has had on all of us have been hard for you to experience and witness, as Capricorns take work very seriously. You can't stand anything that gets in the way of progress, so you may be feeling frustrated and angry. However, during the full moon in humanitarian Aquarius on Monday, August 3, you'll experience an awakening, and it'll become easier to accept this new chapter. Remember that it's not passive or weak to accept that business is not as usual right now. Learn to become more flexible, and to be considerate of others who are also going through it.

On Saturday, August 15, innovator planet Uranus goes retrograde until Friday, January 1 of next year. Retrogrades get a bad rap, but this one has the potential to change things in a positive way, both at a macro and micro level. Continuing on August's theme of adaptability, try to change your perspective a bit. It's not giving up to change your strategy if it's no longer working for you. Rather than getting frustrated over perceived failures, consider the skills you have — or new ones you may be able to learn — and how you can use them in the future. 

Don't assume that your partner knows how you feel. Ask what they need from you.

Your attention turns to your love life during a new moon in bold Leo on Tuesday, August 18. You're reserved, Capricorn. Even when you're completely in love with someone, you're not always forthcoming with your affection. Don't assume that your partner knows how you feel. Ask what they need from you. Give them attention, affection, and affirmation. During this new moon, Leo's outgoing nature will rub off on you, and you'll find doting on those you care about to be a pleasant task. 

Now that you've got your love life back on track, you can focus on work. Practical Virgo season begins on Saturday, August 22. You're feeling ready to buckle down and make your schedule, to-do lists, and goals for the rest of the year. Stay flexible — you're doing great. See you in September!

We know many of you may be feeling worried, frightened, or isolated right now. Although the stars don't have answers to the multitude of questions running through all of our minds, astrology may at least provide some comfort during times of uncertainty. We urge you to donate to one or all of these organizations if you're able to; if you can't, we created a guide to ways you can support the BLM movement other than financially.
