Love planet Venus is about to move into Capricorn on January 23rd, 2024!

This can be helpful since Capricorn is the sign of goals and resolutions, and pleasant Venus gives us a little boost for the resolutions we make. In love, we can think more about our path and commitments and want more stability in our love relationships.

What Does it Mean When Venus is 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 will do almost whatever it takes to get them.

And when Venus is in your corner, she’s trying to ensure 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 become 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 is 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 at work or in love, when 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, 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, which can lead to a lot of disappointment in love and relationships. It’s good not to have a low bar, but you must also 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 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.

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 a 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! However 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!

Embrace Venus in Capricorn!

Remember, this transit doesn’t permit any nonsense regarding relationships. 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.

Capricorn is a sign that demands you do things the right way and for the right reasons and to be in it for the long haul.
