Capricorn Monthly Horoscope (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorn is the tenth astrological sign in the zodiac, originating from the constellation of Capricornus. It spans the 270–300th degree of the zodiac, corresponding to celestial longitude. Capricorn is ruled by the planet Saturn. Under the tropical zodiac, the sun transits this area from December 22 to January 20 each year, and under the sidereal zodiac, the sun currently transits the constellation of Capricorn from approximately January 14 to February 14. In astrology, Capricorn is considered an earth sign, introvert sign, a power sign and one of the four cardinal signs. It is also tagged as the most ambitious starsign. Its symbol is based on the Sumerian primordial god of wisdom and waters, Enki with the head and upper body of a mountain goat, and the lower body and tail of a fish. Later known as Ea in Akkadian and Babylonian mythology, Enki was the god of intelligence (gestú, literally “ear”), creation, crafts; magic; water, seawater and lakewater (a, aba, ab).
The mountain goat part of the symbol depicts ambition, intelligence, curiosity but also steadiness, and ability to thrive in inhospitable environments while the fish represents passion, spirituality, intuition, connection with soul. Individuals born between December 22 to January 20 may be called Capricornian.

Capricorn Monthly Horoscope: August, 2020
When Mercury, the planet that rules communication, enters confident and outgoing Leo on August 4, your conversations become bold and dynamic. You love to embellish the stories you tell, and you might even throw in an extra fictional detail or two to see people’s reactions.
The 13th August brings a powerful square between Mars and Pluto that is challenging at best. Passive-aggressive behavior is quite common now, and you’ve been known to get in more than a few sarcastic barbs here and there. There might not be anything you can do to control other people’s behavior, but you can control how you react to it.
Inventive Uranus goes retrograde in the Bull’s stubborn sign on August 15, urging you to look at the past several months and examine which plans you made fell through or which projects you attempted failed. It’s great that you’ve made efforts to succeed, but are the potential disappointments worth investing yourself in 100 percent? By the time this five-month retrograde period is over, you might find it’s time to dial things back just a bit.
The sun leaves exciting Leo for more predictable Virgo on the 22nd August, putting you more at ease as you revisit some of the goals you have. This focused, practical energy encourages you to forge ahead with the ambition you’re known for. Very few things can stop you now.
