The second planet from the Sun, the astrological presence of love planet Venus is symbolic of abundance, beauty, sensuality, and pleasure. Since December 29, 2023, the goddess has been wandering freely through the exotic sign of Sagittarius, where she taught us the beauty of adventure and the value that exists within every experience. What did you discover about yourself and your relationships? Was this Venusian transit a source of influence in your self-love journey?
The zodiac sign Venus transits essentially determines the style of our individual and collective love language(s) and partnership dynamics. The same goes for financial investments and money-making abilities. That being said, while we were more prone to taking risks and venturing into the unknown with Venus in Sagittarius, the spontaneity and momentum will come to a screeching halt upon its debut in Capricorn on January 23. In simpler terms, it’s time to bring your love down to earth and become more mindful of your spending habits.
Hardworking and pragmatic, Capricorn is governed by Saturn, the planet of authority, boundaries, discipline, and structure. If we combine the influence of harmony-seeking Venus with Capricorn’s pursuit of self-mastery, this transit increases the desire for commitment, tradition, and relationships built upon a solid foundation. It encourages us to approach matters of the heart with a sense of responsibility and a focus on long-term stability, making it an ideal transit for reaching a desired goal, whether personally or romantically speaking.
If you’ve been working towards a career goal or perhaps contemplating whether to showcase your recent achievements on your work portfolio, be sure to harness the influence of Venus in Capricorn if you’re looking to add a layer of sophisticated charm to your professional persona and reputation. Otherwise, those of you in the dating world could find a romantic prospect’s professional background attractive, if not bond over shared goals and traditions with a crush. Truth is, there isn’t anything Venus in Capricorn finds sexier than the hustle.
On January 28, Venus will meet with taskmaster Saturn in a charming sextile. This transit is both intuitive and grounded, offering us the opportunity to create more discipline and structure in our personal and professional lives. For instance, do you and your significant other share similar goals, values, and traditions? Are your personal and professional lives in alignment with one another? Sounds overly pragmatic, but love is an investment for Venus in Capricorn. It steers away from superficial connections, as well as suitors lacking accountability.
Venus in Capricorn brings emphasis to the beauty in maturity, substance… and, above all, hard work. However, while making a sensuous trine to expansive Jupiter that same day, Venus will simultaneously encourage you to honor your sense of self-worth and celebrate the abundance within and all around you. There are so many reasons to be grateful. Shortly after, the goddess planet will trine change-maker Uranus on February 7, which can be insightful and liberating. Never say never—an unconventional approach could turn out to be surprisingly successful.
Before the love planet’s journey through Capricorn comes to a close, it will dance with enchanting Neptune in a sweet sextile on February 13, which could inspire the desire for a spiritual union, if not serve as a muse for your next creative venture.
