Venus and Mars are the relationship planets, and right now they're in serious signs. Venus in Scorpio wants a no holds barred connection, while Mars in Capricorn is determined to build something successful. These are grown up placements. No fooling.
Today they sextile each other (at 9 degrees) which is a harmonious aspect. It's prime time for deepening a commitment or getting involved with someone who wants an adult relationship. But you can make use of this energy for the entire length of these transits. Venus in Scorpio magnetizes intense partners/situations, and Mars in Capricorn makes sure it's real.
When Scorpio and Capricorn are activated together, people become selective. Capricorn is ambitious, Scorpio is strategic. If you don't enhance someone's life, you may not make the cut. Of course, you can flip this energy around to work for you; is Mr./Miss X really the best choice? Do they have what it takes to go the distance?
Venus will transit Scorpio until December 15th, and Mars will transit Capricorn until December 25th.
