This is certainly an interesting cosmic combination! On one hand, there is Venus which is the planet of love, acceptance, pleasure, and the arts. On the other hand, you have earthy and Saturn-ruled Capricorn, whose focus is on commitment and work. This means that Venus in Capricorn is a time of approaching our relationships in a more mature way, and when our romances become bound by rules.
When alluring Venus moves into hardworking Capricorn, she is being encouraged to take a hard stance on romance. Love must be earned when Venus is in this sign -- effort counts as much as heart if you want to receive the approval of others.
Relationships are built on shared goals and a willingness to get through even the most difficult of times. Venus in Capricorn rewards hard work in relationships, helping to define problems and making a commitment to solve them.
When Venus is in Capricorn
We take our relationships a lot more seriously when loving Venus moves into committed Capricorn. This transit challenges us to put in the effort needed to get the love and affection we truly desire. For those who are coupled, this is their chance to work through problems or have deep conversations about what they envision for the future. And what about those looking for love? This is their opportunity to ditch flighty flirtations in favor of long-lasting love. With Venus in Capricorn, we want our romantic affairs to go the distance.
In addition to its impact on love and relationships, Venus in Capricorn has the same serious effect on all things relating to beauty. This transit may urge us to trade in flashy pieces of clothing and edgy hairdos for a more subdued style. It’s also a great time to get started on any artistic endeavors we’ve been considering. Not only do we have an enhanced ability for building and creating things, but Capricorn also gives Venus the dedication needed to start projects and see them all the way through to the finish line.
Venus in Capricorn has a strong business aspect to it, and it could bring up themes of re-evaluating the worth we bring to our chosen professions. We might ask ourselves if we’re getting the validation we need from our employer, or whether or not we are climbing up the ladder of success the way we had hoped. There is incredible potential for reconnecting with our own inner authority and owning up to whatever it is we need to do to take our career to the next level.
If you were born with Venus in Capricorn
Anyone who has ever been in a committed relationship understands a thing or two about the responsibility that comes with being in love. Sure, romance is great, but if you’re not willing to take your partnership seriously once you get past the puppy love stage, then you won’t have anything substantial. Because your Venus is in Capricorn, you know this intuitively, almost painfully at times. Love is serious business to you, and you know that any love worth having requires a little elbow grease and time.
As someone with a Capricorn Venus, you don’t give your heart away easily. In fact, you may have been accused a time or two of being unfeeling or unwilling to give your love to another person. It’s not that you don’t care, it’s simply that you don’t believe in settling for less than you deserve. Yes, it may take you a while to open yourself up to someone, but once you let down your defenses, you will do whatever it takes to make sure your relationship stands the test of time!
All of this talk about hard work and commitment doesn’t sound very loving, but that’s just because you show it in a much different way than other Venus signs do. You prefer to show your affection and emotions through what you do rather than what you say. So, while you may not be one to shout your love from the rooftops, you will profess your love for your partners through steadfast devotion and consistently putting effort into making your relationship work. And just as you will be there for someone through thick and thin, you expect the same in return from anyone you decide to settle down with.
