The planet of love, Venus, moved into Capricorn just a few days ago, and will stay in this sign until December 20.

Venus has been traveling through the zodiac signs pretty quickly this year, so this is actually the second time Venus is in Capricorn in 2019. The first time was February 3 - March 1. The Capricorn energy will be a lot stronger this time though!

Venus is the planet of love, a pleasant planet with pleasant energy. Capricorn is an Earth sign, making it practical and stable, as well as a Cardinal sign, making it take initiative for what it wants. This means Venus in Capricorn is the perfect time to take the next step in relationships and commit!

What to Expect with Venus in Capricorn

If you were born while Venus was in Capricorn, you have this placement in your birth chart. You know this position well!

Venus in Capricorn takes commitment very seriously, and approaches potential new beaus like it’s a job interview. You want someone who can stand by you and help you create the life you want and achieve the goals you’ve set. If they’ll hold you back from that, you’re not interested.

Venus in Capricorn tends to be attracted to those they feel have status and authority. This can mean going for highly successful types, someone who is a doctor, lawyer, politician, or CEO, or it can manifest as being with someone much older. You can find success attractive, and lazy couch potatoes can be a turn-off.

This is also a placement that tends to love their career and can be a workaholic, so if you’re pursuing someone who has Venus in Capricorn, turn up the romance to get their attention away from status reports and product launches. Once you win them over, Venus in Capricorn in love can be super committed!

When transit Venus is in Capricorn, we can take on some of this energy as our own. We can focus on trying to make connections with those who we feel will help us achieve our goals, and success can be a big goal. Commitment can be easier to achieve, and may end up being a goal for many.

If you’re in a relationship, you may focus on trying to take the next step, whatever that is for you. Keeping things casual with someone may not feel as satisfying anymore. If you’re single, you may push to be with someone more forcefully, wanting some form of commitment. But you won’t settle either, so you may just have to be patient!

3 Relationship Tips for Venus in Capricorn

Take love & relationships seriously.

Capricorn is a sign that takes anything it’s committed to seriously, and love and relationships are no exception. Give your sweetie more time and improve the foundation of your relationship so you can soar to new heights. If single, find someone who has the same serious attitude about commitment so you don’t have to worry.

Exercise self-control in relationships.

Capricorn always wants to be the professional, whether it’s with work or in love. No getting out of control! Wild and wonky is for other signs, but not for Capricorn. Having better self-control allows you to be more responsible with your relationships and helps you follow through with commitment.

Take charge in relationships.

Parting Thoughts…

Venus in Capricorn is a lovely time to commit, and as I mentioned at the start, the energy is much stronger this time than it was earlier in the year. Why? Because expansive Jupiter is moving into Capricorn December 2, joining Venus (along with Saturn and Pluto), and we’ll have a Solar Eclipse in Capricorn in December. Hello Capricorn!

This is a period where many will commit in some way, in love or elsewhere. It’s been light and casual with Jupiter in Sagittarius. Time to get down to business and commit!
