Venus enters Capricorn on November 11th, adding structure and formality to relationships, finances and values. Capricorn limits Venus' energy, while focusing her on the bottom line - is it real, will it be successful?
Tradition is important. Whether those traditions are healthy or not is another matter, but this transit will draw your attention to how it's always been done. You can stick with rigid expressions of love and self-esteem, or you can take responsibility for what you want and move towards something with real value. Capricorn is a Cardinal sign. It's ambitious. Distorted Capricorn can remain frozen in an outdated definition of success. But the ambition to climb - the ambition to achieve- is always there. Venus in Capricorn wants just as much (perhaps more) than Venus in Taurus. But the awareness of what you cannot have makes the longing more controlled while enhancing initiative.
This transit will help you get serious about the things you want and love. Empty promises, unfulfilled crushes and lottery wins of the future aren't important. Proof of value matters now. There will be time enough for dreams in the future, but now is the time to work with reality. Cooperate (Venus) with the rules (Capricorn) while remaining conscious of the line between responsibility and repression.
What's your idea of success, in matters of the heart, pocket book and happiness? For some, there's a resistance to quantifying these things. But Capricorn pushes you to look at the physical manifestations of success. If you're in a good place, use Capricorn's energy to enhance the beautiful form. If you want something better, this transit can help you work for it.
