Venus will be transiting through the sign of Capricorn from November 5th through March 6th 2014 due to her impending retrograde in mid-December (which lasts until January 31st). Venus signifies our value system – what we find beautiful, desirable and those things that make us more complete and whole. Venus also represents sexuality, eroticism and is a profound expression of individuality. Venus needs to ornament and to see herself more clearly through the eyes of others. In Capricorn her gaze can become more calculating and status conscious.
Capricorn, also host to transforming Pluto, is the builder, organizer, business person or conservationist. This energy demands concrete results from endeavors. The mountaintop the Capricorn Goat climbs represents soul growth rather than personal growth. Setbacks and obstacles diminish once this truth is embraced.
Venus in Capricorn is romantic and emotional but there is an inhibiting influence in expressing these emotions. Cautiousness in making total commitments is common as is the need/desire to understand how dependable, predictable and hard working the potential partner. Where we find Venus transiting is the area we can feel better about ourselves and grow in confidence.
