Venus in Capricorn: Love Horoscopes for Your Sign

Posted on January 22, 2022

At last – some stability for our love lives!

Our planet of love, relationships, art, and beauty – Venus – moved into Capricorn on January 8th, sticking around through retrogrades and all until March 6th, 2022. Venus has also been in retrograde for a good chunk of this time, stirring the pot and bringing relationship issues to light.

(Fun fact: because of the retrogrades, Venus has also been popping in and out of Capricorn since December).

However, Venus in Capricorn, in particular, is prone to getting to the heart of the matter, helping us focus on what matters and make the structured, practical choices we need to make progress in love.

Let’s dive deeper!

What Does it Mean When Venus in Capricorn?

Venus is the love and money planet that’s as attractive and sizzling as she is stabilizing and luxurious. Venus loves her money and beautiful things, and she will do almost whatever it takes to get it.

And when Venus is in your corner, she’s trying to make sure you get those things, too!

When transit Venus is in Capricorn, we can take on some of this energy as our own. We can focus on making connections with those 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. But 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!

How to Make Venus in Capricorn Work For You

A word of warning as we move into Venus in Capricorn! Venus doesn’t “do” toxic relationships or self-serving work matters. Yes, she can be a little naughty, but she’s never on the dark side.

You want to stay in the light of Venus to attract those wonderful things you are hoping for. Trying to get something the sneaky or short way just isn’t going to work. Hoping for a big promotion? Make sure you know your commitments before you sacrifice your quality of life.

Longing for the next commitment in love? Make sure it′s the right person before you side-track your life with a love that isn′t good for you. Are you worried about making the wrong wish or making the wrong choice? Capricorn won′t let you do that, so long as you keep it real and get it done.

Here′s how!

1. Set Boundaries

Boundaries with key partnerships will be stretched, bent, and pushed to their limits. The best way to get what you want from partners, in business or in love, is to not act so desperate.

Engage with partners with an air of openness, availability, and transparency, but without an air of desperation.

2. Aim for Serious Relationships

Relationships will be more serious now, whether you want that or not. Earth signs don’t mess around – they play for keeps.

If you are the kind that prefers things casual, this will be an uncomfortable time for you. Just ride it out.

Cherish the people in your life and respect them, or you will lose them to someone who takes them more seriously.

3. Go For What You Want

Don′t be afraid to go after what you want. This transit is all yours. Own it, and if your love interest doesn’t rise to your standards, well then, Venus will find you someone who can.

4. Become Authentic & Vulnerable

Have you been waiting for that time either in work or in love where you can let your guard down a little bit? This is the time. Open up that heart and just be real. It is time to ask for what you want and be realistic about it. You will find this both uplifting and grounding at the same time.

This is powerful chemistry to inject into any partnership, and with stable and secure Capricorn in play, this chemistry injects magic that is committed and secure.

5. Sensuality Versus Sexuality

Tactile passions rather than social passions and demonstrating romantic actions versus verbally expressive experiences are all ways to manifest the power of Venus in Capricorn.

In other words, think things through during this transit and don’t leap in head first! Show, don’t tell!

Venus in Capricorn in the Birth Chart

If you were born while Venus is in Capricorn, you have Venus in Capricorn in your birth chart. This means your primary way of connecting and approaching love and relationships is through Capricorn.

You’re someone who is likely responsible in love, takes things slowly and isn’t in a rush, and keeps your promises. With Venus in Capricorn in your birth chart, you may like traditional, old-school romance and courtship.

You may have high expectations at times, though, and this can lead to a lot of disappointment in love and relationships. It’s good not to have a low bar, but you also need to allow others to be imperfectly human.

The Venus in Capricorn man can be very loyal and shower you with attention when interested. He may be slow to make the first move unless he’s confident you’ll reciprocate. Whereas the Venus in Capricorn woman can have an Earthy, timeless quality about her, and she can be very patient. She may be a little too concerned with appearances, though, and needs to let go of that.

In general, Venus in Capricorn may not have the best luck in love when young (unless you’ve learned all of the Capricorn and Saturn lessons you have to). You may have better luck as an adult.

Your Venus in Capricorn Love Horoscopes

Now that you have a firmer understanding of Venus in Capricorn let’s dive into your Venus in Capricorn love horoscopes!


Although you can appreciate some of the drive that your fellow Cardinal sign possesses, Fire and Earth tends to create scorched earth.

Your passion and enthusiasm for adventure may be slightly curbed during this time, Aries. You have a harder time settling down and working through things one-by-one, which is what Venus in Capricorn wants to do.

Despite this, the transit can also bring you a keener awareness and understanding of what your place should be in the world or what it should be in relation to others. It’s important not to get caught up on the problems that you can’t solve or stubbornly stick to the old ways.

Your large heart possesses a drive and energy that may seem hard to channel during this time in an appropriate way. Find your groove with patience, and then safely share your inner fire with those that count.


The world is often not yet ready for the big heart of Taurus.

This Venus in Capricorn is all about learning how to navigate love and interpersonal connections safely while staying true to the authentic you. You’re Venus-ruled, and the planet of love and beauty speaks to something deep within you.

In Capricorn, this transit speaks to your Earthy sensibilities. Even if it’s more cool and collected, practicality doesn’t always align with your desire to shower those that you love with open affection.

During this time, when others seem more hot and cold, let them show you who they are and their true intentions.


Venus in Capricorn awakens something a little uncomfortable for Gemini, having little common ground with down-to-earth Capricorn.

This transit is all about going within and finding practical solutions to recurring problems. However, this isn’t usually how cerebral and curious Gemini likes to solve things. You’re a free spirit and don’t always settle down, more prone to starting a conversation and seeing where it goes within the flow.

During this time, you may be face to face with communication issues or unresolved relationship problems from the past, only to find that they demand time and energy in a way that you were unprepared to offer.

Be open-minded to new ways of doing things, and don’t be surprised if situations of the past come back right around to say hello about now.


This transit is all about fortifying your existing home turf, Cancer.

It’s no secret that the hard-shelled crab cares deeply for their loved ones. Although Capricorn is in opposition to you, this head-to-head difficulty can help shed light on the issues that need work directly rather than skirting around the problems.

This way, you can merge the best of both worlds: your Watery emotional, intuitive heart with Capricorn’s long-term thinking and practical ideas.

Although the road may be uncomfortable at certain points, you’re meant to make your way through, Cancer!


Despite Leos’ self-focused reputation, anyone close to a Leo knows how hard they love and how much they truly give.

As a Fixed sign, when you do give, you give in a long-term, devoted way. Venus in Capricorn is here to check up on that devotion now and make sure that you’ve been doing so in a way that’s sustainable and not too overwhelming. (You tend to go a little too hard sometimes too).

If you notice your energy is depleted after spending time with someone, Venus in Capricorn is knocking on the door. It’s showing you a routine or way of communicating that needs work. This transit is about going within and being cognizant of what happens on the outside simultaneously.

Keep your eyes peeled and your heart ready for whatever work may be needed.


You’re a sign that can actually appreciate Capricorn’s down-to-earth sensibilities and penchant for the practical.

Earthy and hard-working, just like Capricorn, you may see the fruits of your labor actually start coming to the forefront during this time. Fun fact: sometimes a reward can be relaxing and enjoying yourself with your loved ones, rather than jumping into a new work-related opportunity.

This Venus in Capricorn transit, you’re challenged to devote more time to having fun and enjoying the moment, Virgo.


This transit is all about home and hearth for you, Libra.

You may notice that Venus in Capricorn illuminates areas of your home life that need work or routines and habits that have been creating the foundation of what “home” looks like is no longer clicking.

Your home should be your safe space, something you can return to with an open heart and feel at peace with. The challenges within this area only serve to strengthen your connection with what “home” is for you — is it the place? The people you love? The connections that build your surrounding community?

It’s time to ask yourself those questions and get to the heart of the answers.


This time may seem like a bustling one for typically introverted Scorpio.

Venus in Capricorn is putting communication and conversation to your forefront. Pay attention to the interactions you hold with those close to you during this time, Scorpio. You may notice that people are showing you who they are and what their true intentions are more than usual.

Additionally, now may be a time when your own communication sensibilities are put into question if they haven’t been fully articulating the voice of your heart so far.

Now is a time to get into the swing of a style of setting boundaries and self-expression that works for you!


This transit is less about the talk and more about the money for Sagittarius.

While everyone else seems to be focusing on communication squabbles and romantic drama, the wild archer is more focused on putting finances into order. Straight and narrow Capricorn will be helping you think long-term about all of this as well.

While some of this may come in the form of financial blessings, a lot of it will come in the form of questioning your relationship to money and what you really want it to look like.

The questions may get philosophical and less tangible at times, but that’s not much new for Sagittarius, is it?


This is a time when everyone and everything is wrestling with your energy, Capricorn. It’s your time to shine!

As much as it may feel like you’re center-stage right now, this also means that it’s time to wrestle with aspects of your identity and who you are in relationships that may be more uncomfortable.

Be prepared to stand your ground and remember what’s important to you, as well as the values that you know you hold dear. When you do so, you’re likely to attract folk who are of a similar kind or further fortify the relationships with those that see and know you at a heart level.

This can be a time of immense growth and strength, wise goat — just be prepared to take a look in the mirror and be honest with yourself too.


Secrets abound this Venus in Capricorn transit for you, Aquarius.

What’s lurking beneath the surface? You may find that things you thought once resolved are now bubbling back to the surface to haunt you or that your once-hidden anxieties, worries, or problems are no longer so concealable.

Now is the time to venture into the depths of the unconscious, to pay attention to your dreams, and to be open with your loved ones when you’re able to.

There’s no room now for anything buried and unearthed.


This transit is less about the one-on-one connections for Pisces and more about the wider whole.

Venus in Capricorn is illuminating your larger social circles and connections, perhaps stirring the pot in some areas, making you feel like the middle man who seemingly is the only one who can see both sides.

Although there may be rifts in the mix, this can also be a good time to focus on having fun and building stronger social networks and connections with those that you otherwise may not have gotten a chance to kick it with.

Finding a happy balance between work and play, and saying hello to both familiar and new faces, is the medium you’re going to want to strike, Pisces.

3 Relationship Tips for Venus in Capricorn

Here are some relationship tips during the Venus in Capricorn transit:

1. Take Love & Relationships Seriously

Capricorn is a sign that takes anything it’s committed to seriously. 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.

2. 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.

3. Take Charge In Relationships

Capricorn does love to be the boss! Though you do have to watch for becoming bossy (that’s usually not attractive).

Focus more on taking charge instead of bossing loved ones around. Take charge with commitment, and see how sexy THAT is!

Stay True to Yourself

This is a period where many will commit in some way, in love or elsewhere. The emotional rollercoasters are slowing down, and Venus in Capricorn gives us the commitment and stability we want.

This transit brings reassurance to us that enables us to breathe a sigh of relief. Things have been up in the air, and we haven’t known whether we’re coming or going!

But now, we can relax a little and enjoy the fruits of our labor. There’s still a lot of work to be done, but at least we know which direction we’re going in!

She rewards this honesty by giving you greater insight into the type of relationship you need to be at your best – even if that relationship is with yourself!
