If you're a Capricorn (or have Capricorn emphasized in your chart), the last few months haven't been easy for you. Pluto's been plowing through your sign, digging deep and churning up everything you wanted to keep buried.
But while the Universe doles out bitter medicine with one hand there's always some sugar in the other. In this case, the lump of candy is called Venus. The planet of love, money and self-esteem has moved into your sign today and will stay until December 20th. No matter how rough things have been or how cynical you're feeling, your powers of attraction will increase.
Venus starts off with a square to the Devil's advocate. That's Uranus in Aries, the one who disrupts the status quo. Right off the bat, you're going to be challenged on what you want. The type of relationship that you've grown accustomed to? It's not going to work any more. Your current self-image? Get ready for a makeover. The financial structure that you thought would last forever? Think again.
Ok, this doesn't sound promising. Just keep reading.
Remember that you have Pluto in your sign right now. Pluto transforms and nothing that it touches remains the same. So you're already on an accelerated evolutionary track. Venus square Uranus is just going to help you along. I mean, with all the bone-deep transformations you've been going through how can you possibly go back to the same old lovers/self-image/relationship with money? If you don't believe me, just try to do things the same way. Situations will either fall apart or you'll feel so restless that you'll want to crawl out of your skin.
Anyway, after that initial wake-up call, Venus will glide into a smooth trine with Jupiter in Taurus. That's the new you reaping the benefits. Allow something/someone unfamiliar into your life (you'll be attracting new situations like crazy so you won't have to look far) and you will see how wonderfully sweet things can be. Jupiter means expansion. Taurus (ruled by Venus) means security. So that's more of the good stuff for you if you embrace those changes.
Do you feel like this is all leading to something big? It is. On December 1st Venus will conjunct Pluto in your sign. You'll gain powerful insight into those love/money/self-esteem issues and you'll be handed a priceless opportunity to release (once and for all) whatever has been holding you back.
Here's what could manifest and how you can deal:
- Confrontations with past lovers: put all those secrets/resentments/manipulative tendencies out on the table, hash things out, then let them go. Permanently.
- Confrontations with yourself: questions about self-worth/security needs must be addressed. Ask yourself where your foundation feels shakiest (this will be where you feel weak/incompetent/unworthy) and how you can make it stronger.
- Confrontations with money: having it taken away or being in bondage (debt, loans) to it are sure signs that you need to look at how much authority money has over you. Are you ok with money as your master?
Pluto does its stuff by forcing you to look at the shadow. It also acts like a giant magnet so you will attract situations involving love, money or status. Here's the catch: if you don't do the work you'll end up attracting the same old crap.
This post applies to anyone with planets or angles in Capricorn. You'll feel this transit most intensely if you have something between 0-6 degrees Capricorn.
