August 2018 Horoscopes: Capricorn

As the most ambitious sign of the zodiac, you like your progress where you can see it—in your wallet. Still, under the Leo partial solar eclipse on the 11th, you cross a different sort of milestone, and one that’s no less profound. It lights up your secretive eighth house, so a private victory feels just as good as a public accomplishment now. Mars retrograde into your sign on the 12th could cause your temper to flare, but you can keep this in check with a few extra workouts (or sex sessions, if you’re lucky). By the time Mars is direct again on the 27th, you’ll have forgotten what you were so mad about in the first place. Fortunately, Mercury direct on the 19th brings good news that cools your frustration, and a sync between party planets Jupiter and Neptune in your friendship houses that same day means your friends will be there to help you blow off some steam. Emotions aren’t really your thing, but under the Pisces full moon on the 26th, let your friends know that you love them deep down!
