Venus in Capricorn has a mature approach to relationships. Couples will spend more time now working through their problems and making commitments to one another and to shared goals. This is not the time for lovers to slack off!
If you're single, this doesn't sound as much fun as flirty Venus in Sagittarius, does it? But the good news is that if you meet someone now, it won't be a flighty flirt that's over as soon as it begins. With Venus in Capricorn, we're playing for keeps.
In addition to its effect on love and relationships, Venus in Capricorn has the same serious effect on all things relating to beauty. You may find yourself dressing less flashy now, or putting your hair in a more subdued style. If you're decorating your home, you may also go for a more conservative look now.
Also, if you're interested in pursuing any artistic endeavors, now is a great time to get started. Capricorn will give creative Venus the stick-to-it-iveness to start art projects and see them through to the finish.
Capricorn isn't flashy -- it's about getting real and building foundations for the future. So take advantage of this caring Capricorn energy and use it to achieve your relationship goals! Put in the hard work now so you can earn the love you deserve.
