As a cardinal sign, you love beginnings. When you’re in the early stages of a job or relationship, you feel totally fulfilled—and who could blame you? It’s an exciting time! But what happens when you need to…stay put? What happens when that fresh car smell has worn off? Or the commute starts to become mundane? Or that sexy dynamic becomes increasingly less steamy? That’s not an easy place for you to be, Capricorn darling, but on August 8—during the New Moon in Leo—that’s exactly what you need to consider.

During this powerful lunation, there will be no nocturnal illumination; the sky is completely dark, providing absolutely no distraction. You’ll need to rely solely on starlight and intuition, so don’t be afraid to ask yourself some tough questions. What happens when you need to breathe into a commitment, Capricorn? How does it feel to be truly, honestly, and fearlessly intimate—with others and, perhaps most importantly, with yourself? You may think you have it all figured out, but under this contemplative sky, there’s a lot to be discovered. And that’s a beautiful thing, sea-goat, darling! Fundamentally, this New Moon prompts an emotional transformation: Give yourself permission to blossom into a beautiful butterfly, a metamorphosis from the inside out! How magical!

As the Moon continues to move forward, it meets the Sun again on August 22, forming a powerful Full Moon in Aquarius. Didn’t this…already happen? It sure did, Capricorn! This is the second Full Moon in Aquarius of the season (the first occurred on July 23), making this a Blue Moon. For you, this is good news: This powerful electric lunation shines a bright light in the area of your chart associated with safety, security, and—perhaps most importantly—personal finances. This is an excellent time to manifest some moolah! Whether you’re hoping to pay off bills, save up for a major purchase, or simply get back on track with your budget, this double dose of La Luna will help you identify promising monetary opportunities that you may have overlooked. Whether you’re talking to your boss about a pay raise, saying “yes” to a low-pressure odd job, or quite literally finding some forgotten cash in an old purse (my personal favorite), this Blue Moon is definitely serving shades of green. We love to see it!

Finally, just a few hours after the Blue Moon, the Sun says goodbye to Leo as it cruises into Virgo’s sky. I’m not going to lie, Capricorn: This will feel really, really good. You’ve been a really good sport—making the best out of some objectively shitty situations—but with the Sun now flying through a like-minded earth sign, things are about to get a hell of a lot easier. Perhaps you can politely decline a few non-essential Zoom meetings? Or delegate a few of your responsibilities? Or maybe—just maybe—you can trust that the universe has your back, and you don’t need to have you foot on the gas 24/7? I know, it’s a stretch! But, the point is darling Capricorn, that you don’t have to work so hard all the time. Give yourself permission to take a break. You are loved, you are supported, and you are going to achieve everything you set out to accomplish. In the meantime, however, you can exhale. Phew!
