I often refer to folks born with Venus in Capricorn, natally, as “serious lovers and financiers.” These people court their partners and cultivate wealth in an almost militant-like fashion that ensures success.
As Venus makes her way by transit through Capricorn, a similar “serious” approach will be asked of us when it comes to the people and things we value. Whether saving money for a home purchase, or dating with the intention of marriage, Venus here demands that we keep our eye on the prize.
Capricorn is ruled by the ringed planet Saturn in Astrology, the planet that helps us to master things overtime. Saturn’s role is to keep us steadfast while overcoming challenges and difficulties. We stay the course, as far as Saturn is concerned, which is why Capricorns are known for their many accomplishments.
Such dedication is necessary when it comes to our aspirations. But if we’re not careful, that drive can become obsessive, controlling, and filled with pressure. Venus’ energy is meant to be light. But while transiting Capricorn, it can feel like a wet blanket of mundane tasks and consistent routines.
Still, mundane tasks and consistent routines are often what it takes to get things done. It’s the slow, uneventful, steady effort (ahem to all you Fire signs out there!) that often brings the greatest rewards.
As Venus takes her time moving through Capricorn, you would be wise to take your time in pursuit of love, money, or any other cherished possession. Good things come to those who wait. Be patient. Don’t force it. Keep it light, but stay focused.
