Congratulations, you made it through 2020! Happy New Year!
Venus is the goddess of art, romance, pleasure, and beauty. Venus in Capricorn encourages us to be more grounded and efficient. This means we will be more discerning now in our relationships. Capricorn, like his ruler Saturn, operates through contraction and conservation. The sea-goat is serious and quiet, yet generous and dependable.
When Venus, planet of interpersonal relations, enters Capricorn, it’s time to build our reputation. Look at your social life, work life, and how/where they intersect. Experiment with networking and new career pathways.
Those born with Venus in Capricorn expect others to show up and be helpful. Capricorn does not tolerate unreliability. We all have the right to our own standards and expectations, but the sturdy sea-goat could certainly benefit from a bit more flexibility. Capricorn is a seasoned professional who manages his social life as though it were a business. In other words, he doesn’t distinguish between work and play. He is steadfast and clearheaded, but can also be cold, stiff, reserved, or intransigent.
Venus transitions to Capricorn on Jan 8, the same day that Mercury transitions to Aquarius. The moon in Scorpio will bring an emotionally rich flavor on the first day.
On Jan 9, Venus trines Mars in Taurus. This should be a very high energy day, especially with the moon in spunky Sagittarius. The combination of Venus and Mars brings resolution to social conflict. A good day for movement.
On Jan 13, Venus trines Uranus Retrograde in Taurus. (Uranus is technically still retrograde at this point but will turn direct about 8 hours after this trine is exact – good news for Taurus and Aquarius!) Things may feel a bit scattered or jittery. You may be feeling tired or defeated, unsure of which direction to take. The day will be extra spicy and unpredictable with the moon in Aquarius (ruled by Uranus).
Aquarius Season begins on Jan 19 this year. The moon ushers in this solar cycle in the first sign of fiery Aries.
The final aspect formed by Venus in Capricorn comes on the full moon of Jan 28 with a conjunction to powerful Pluto. Emotions will run high. A great day to talk about real shit. Pluto allows us to fall in love with our deepest work and accomplishments.
Heads up: Mercury Retrograde begins on Jan 30! Hopefully the moon in Virgo will help us feel clearheaded and grounded on the first day.
Celebrate the first day of this transit with Capricorn Yoga. In meditation, focus on the root chakra. If you were born with Venus in Capricorn, this is your Venus Return. To find your personal Venus sign, click here.
