Capricorn Mom Horoscope: August 6 – August 12
Breathe deep, Capricorn, love is in the air. Starting Tuesday and lasting through September 6, romance ruler Venus tours your seventh house of partnerships, igniting all sorts of dynamic duos in your world, but particularly the ones that say, “I do.” For some Caps, a walk down the aisle is in their future. If you’re already in a committed relationship, this Venus cycle only strengthens your bond. Give it the space it needs to evolve by creating one-on-one time together. Sure, snuggling on the couch after the kids are tucked in can be sweet and even intimate, but not seven days a week. Designate one day a week as date night, rain or shine. Tip: make sure you’ve got backup babysitters lined up for those last-minute schedge changes. Single? Work on softening your approach, especially if you’ve been out of the dating game for a while. Should you feel especially rusty, give yourself a much-deserved night off, and hit a hotspot with a more experienced friend to show you the ropes. On Wednesday, your seductive side gets a boost when communicator Mercury turns direct after a three-week retrograde in your sensual eighth house. When it comes to you-know-who, things have been as clear as mud. The sludge starts to clear midweek, giving you the impetus to slot said person into his/her rightful category. Remember: only the ones who walk their talk are keepers. Your eighth house also rules shared resources, and Mercury’s influence can help you generate a much higher bank balance. Isn’t the ideal job one where you can make money while doing something else? Considering how many balls you’ve got in the air, Capricorn mama, it’s worth pursing. Think: royalities, commissions, investments. If your current financial situation doesn’t allow for such big money transactions, it’s still wise to know how the ins and outs.

If you can’t keep your eyes open by time the kids are bathed and in bed, throw Stanny’s book in your purse and sneak in ten-minute reading spurts throughout your day.
