Capricorn Horoscope: July 2018
Cementing relationships, liquefying assets
You've got major shifts happening in close partnerships this month, both business and personal. A Solar Eclipse on July 12 will land in your relationship sector, offering the potential for a fresh start in at least one major alliance. This eclipse, however, will demand that you learn how to correctly use your power by empowering the relationship rather than trying to control or manipulate the other person involved. If you can do this, then you can count on this connection to be indomitable. If you are more focused on what you can get from the other person or are trying to push an unhealthy attachment in this dynamic, well … it's not going to be pretty.
Let go of control issues, Capricorn. Plain and simple. Pluto is in your sign and will oppose this eclipse point, making certain that you learn this lesson one way or another. As long as you choose to take the highest road possible and avoid doing anything underhanded in order to ensure that your personal needs are met, then you are initiating what could be a very solid and mutually empowering relationship. In terms of business, you and this person could be unstoppable! But remember, you need to check yourself. This is not the month to allow yourself to be seduced by any unsavory motivations. This is not the month to be an opportunist. That will backfire in your face. This IS the month to nurture the potential you have with someone else and lay the foundation for something that can truly stand the test of time.
In other news, you'll need to be extra patient this month when it comes to your money. Mars will be retrograde in your earned income sector through August 27, making it seem as if your money is leaving to pay bills faster than you can make it. In fact, a Lunar Eclipse on July 27 in the same area of your chart might lead to you losing a source of income. Either way, your security buttons are sure to be pushed, making you extra anxious about financial matters. Do what you can to keep it in perspective and know that this too shall pass. Mercury will turn retrograde in your 8th House of Joint Finances and Investments on July 26. This might actually be a good time to take a look at where you have money socked away. If you need to take a chunk of cash out of an investment in order to get through a financial rough patch, the good news is you'll have the money to do so. Again, it's all temporary. And in the end, it's only money.
