As the zodiac's "provider" sign, you're no stranger to sacrifice. When you love people you really want to be there for them—whether they ask for your support or not. But what if it wasn't actually your job to intuit everyone else's needs? This Tuesday, August 15 transformational Pluto in Capricorn and your house of self-love will face off with adoring Venus in your partnership zone. Tend to your own needs, Capricorn, or they could erupt like a volcano through an emotional outburst or sheer exhaustion. Someone you care for has been making a lot of demands lately. Ask yourself honestly: Can I give them what they need? If you know in your heart that their requirements are too great, bowing out may be an act of kindness for both of you. But don't give up SO easily. Maybe what's called for is a clear conversation. State your limits and see if they still want to play. Also, ask what THEY need in order to feel secure. It might be a simpler wish list than you realize.
On Thursday, "no limits" Jupiter in your career house gets into a tangled angle with Venus (a 90-degree square) and you could bite off more than you can legit chew. How far will you go to seal the deal? Easy does it! You love a challenge, but this one could get you in over your head. (Oh, the pressure!) Fueling yourself with stress is no way to live, Capricorn. If you're going to add a new project to your plate, you may have to bow out of another commitment just to keep your sanity. With these decadent planets trading fire, you might spend more than you should on a status symbol. Before you indulge on that leather statement bag or that Van Cleef and Arpels watch, siphon off a chunk of your "disposable income" to your savings account or investment portfolio. And put it on hold for 24 hours, because the lure could wear off when you've had a chance to step away and regain clarity.
This Sunday, the Sun in your intimate eighth house syncs up with Uranus in your kinfolk corner. You're highly selective about who you invite into your innermost circle, Capricorn—sometimes to your own detriment. This weekend, raise the red velvet rope a little and open yourself up to some fresh blood. You could meet a couple of people who you KNOW would mesh perfectly with your group. Invite them to tag along and see how on-point your instincts actually are. Maybe the connection you share will turn out to be more of a one-on-one thing. Take the pressure off of yourself to play superconnector for your squad. It's okay to have your own affiliations outside of the core crew. Ready to explore a new scene? With the Leo Sun beaming into your soulful eighth house, you'll feel right at home with the high vibes set—people who enjoy asking the bigger questions about life and exploring the mysterious universe. This cosmic combo sets the stage for romantic intimacy, too. Draw the drapes and lock the door. Passionate private moments are ahead!
