The key words with Capricorn are "grow up". Note that these words imply forward movement.
Venus moves into Saturn ruled Capricorn on January 8th. The combination of relationships/money/self-esteem (Venus) with status (Capricorn) can play out in a couple of ways:
- Slave to tradition
Venus will be challenged by a square from Uranus in Aries (exact on January 12th, at 5 degrees), but she'll be feeling this the minute she enters Capricorn. For you, this means that Venus-ruled activities (love, beauty, money, socializing, personal values) will receive a jolt. Exactly which activities are jolted depends on the area of your chart (occupied by Capricorn).
What are your Venus traditions? If you've approached these areas with maturity (you've taken responsibility for what you want while steadily progressing) the square from Uranus will push you to prove that what you've got is worth preserving. Fight for that relationship. Establish your boundaries. But if you've been going through the motions (because that's the way you've always done things), or you've sacrificed authenticity in favor of status, you will be liberated from a rut. Rigid relationships and fear-based values will be cracked open. If there's anything inside worth preserving, you'll know it.
Venus will then move on to a conjunction with Pluto (exact on January 16th, at 9 degrees). This will take the Uranus disruptions to a deeper level. Solid relationships and authentic values will become more profound. Anything else will evolve or die. Yeah, it's harsh. But we're in Capricorn now; it's all business.
Love, resources, values will grow if you:
- Act like a grown up
- Get real about what you want versus what you need
- Establish healthy boundaries and personal authority
Love, resources, values will be severely disrupted if you:
- Cling to fear-based habits
- Adopt an attitude of futility
Venus will remain in Capricorn until February 1st. Those with planets/angles between 0-10 degrees Capricorn, Aries, Libra or Cancer will feel the greatest impact from Uranus and Pluto.
