Venus moves into cool as a cucumber Capricorn on 8 January, after spending the last month in fiery Sagittarius.
The problem with Venus in Capricorn is that her coolness doesn’t come from a place of detached, quiet acceptance. Instead Venus in Capricorn tends towards the strategic in relationships and remains a little apart and emotionally uninvolved because it suits her need to be objective and independent.
Venus in Capricorn avoids dramas of all kinds, seeing them as impediments to her progress, but this can mean that she fails to engage with others on a deeper level. As a result, she is prone to bottling things up. Even when she feels very deeply about something she may have trouble expressing her feelings to those she loves.
How will Venus in Capricorn affect you?
Venus in Capricorn will resonate most strongly for those with Venus placed in Capricorn or the 10th House natally, as I do. You may also feel it if you have natal aspects between Venus and Saturn.
The area of your life that will be most affected depends on which houses Venus is transiting through in your chart. To check this, look to see where the sign of Capricorn begins and ends in your chart. In my chart Capricorn begins at the end of the 7th House and continues through into the 8th, so this transit will impact my interpersonal relationships and intimacy.
Venus in Capricorn will affect our way of relating with others but some of us will feel it more strongly than others. If you’re one of those who will be personally affected you may feel as though a barrier has suddenly come between you and those you love. It may be difficult to express how you feel.
