At last – some stability for our love lives!

Our planet of love, relationships, art, and beauty – Venus – moves into Capricorn on November 5th, 2021, where she will stay until December 19th, when she transits into the sign of Aquarius until the end of the year.

So if you have been experiencing quite a bit of topsy-turviness in your love life, rest assured Venus in Capricorn will soon be here to bring some practicality, groundedness, and structure to you.

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. Now THAT′S sexy!

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! Read on:

Fire Signs: Aries, Leo & Sagittarius

For the Fire signsAries, Leo, and Sagittarius – out there, this transit helps bring some stability and structure to your relationships.

Things have been pretty heated for you during Scorpio season and during Sagittarius season, combined with Venus in Capricorn, you’re likely feeling bolder and ready to take things to the next level.

But the great part is that you can foresee the consequences that can arise, and you’re able to take a cautious step back and think ahead. The same goes for your finances. Greater stability is on the way, even if you do meet a few roadblocks ahead. Enjoy the planning and get organizing!

Earth Signs: Taurus, Virgo & Capricorn

Venus in Capricorn is especially powerful for the Earth signs – Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn – and chances are you can make some terrific progress under this transit.

The learning curve you experienced during Scorpio season is ready to manifest itself into reality. In other words, it’s time to take what you have learned and implement it in a beneficial and practical way for you.

You’ve probably undergone some self-discovery lately, which is leading you towards your goals and aspirations. Relationships can benefit from heart-to-heart conversation that can lead to some excellent compromise.

Working as a team and not being at loggerheads with your loved ones contributes to your success. Embrace the transit and move forward with optimism!

Air Signs: Gemini, Libra & Aquarius

You’ve probably undergone some profound realizations about your love life for the last week, and once you’ve got past the upheaval of everything, it’s time to engage in a plan of action.

Venus in Capricorn brings Air signsGemini, Libra, and Aquarius – a new way of thinking and quite possibly a change in direction. There is a lot of focus on yourself at this time too. Toxic relationships are unlikely to thrive during this transit, and you could break away entirely if they are present.

There is a lot of focus on your goals and ambitions. “Me first” is a theme for you under this transit, especially if you have been giving too much and receiving too little. If you have your heart set on someone, this connection looks set to deepen even more, and intimacy in some form is on the horizon.

Water Signs: Cancer, Scorpio & Pisces

After the intensity of Scorpio season, Water signsCancer, Scorpio, and Pisces – can relax a little and make sense of the whirlwind of emotions you’ve been subjected to!

Venus in Capricorn brings much stability to your emotions. Still, at the same time, there may be some struggle with others identifying with you and being on the same emotional wavelength. You may feel misunderstood during this transit, which causes you to withdraw a little.

Take this time to reflect on what you want because it’s a fantastic time to make plans and organize yourself. A lot of lessons have been thrown at you lately, and now is the time to make sense of it all. Once you’ve got everything set out, this transit provides you with the grounding and structure to manifest your dreams into reality.

Don’t be afraid to express yourself. A new relationship with the right person is possible if you are clear about exactly what you want, and an existing relationship can strengthen from open and honest conversation during this time.

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.

Venus in Capricorn 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 during this transit, 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!

Remember, when it comes to relationships, this transit doesn’t permit any nonsense. Mind games and manipulations will fail spectacularly. Honest, open conversation, however raw, is the best way to thrive under Venus in Capricorn. 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!

The potential for growth and stability is extremely strong. Venus is working hard to bring you the structure and commitment that you need, so stay focused and practical, and stay true to yourself.
