Feb 3 – Mar 1, 2019
Venus in Capricorn is a seasoned professional. When Venus, planet of interpersonal relations, enters the architectural constellation of Capricorn, it’s time to build our reputation. Converse with people in positions of perceived power. Look at your social life, work life and how/where they intersect. Experiment with networking and career pathways. Plan and prepare; polish and refine; sort and organize; grab hold of this earthen matrix and lay your foundation. With any earth sign such as Capricorn, it is especially helpful to make a physical/visual representation of what you would like to accomplish.
Capricorn, like his ruler Saturn, operates by way of contraction and elimination. The sea goat treats life like business. He is steadfast, clearheaded and charming, but he can also be cold, stiff, reserved, intransigent. He does not wonder what other people are feeling, but what they might do for him. Social interactions emanate from the logic brain here. Such interactions are not visceral or emotional, but bony like pillars, like stone, like the hard, frosty ground beneath our feet. But if we remember to be a little warmer, others will more readily receive what we offer.
Those born with Venus in Capricorn expect others to work for them. They want people to show up, be helpful and get the job done right. Venus in Capricorn does not tolerate unreliability. Something to ask ourselves: how can we as individuals be more useful to friends, family and society? Not: how can everyone else be more useful to me. Yes, we have the right to uphold our standards and expectations. But can the goat learn to be flexible? In the body Capricorn rules the bones, joints and teeth. He is the skeleton both in the body and in life, meaning that he is difficult to change. Practices like yoga work first at the muscular level, then the ligaments, and finally the bones. It is possible to affect change even at the deepest level. Though it takes time and patience, even the bones and skeleton can be rearranged; even they can accommodate.
Three dates worth mentioning: on Feb 18 Venus falls on the same degree as Saturn in Capricorn. Together these planets bring peace to our work and interpersonal life. This is a soft, forgiving influence. Share ideas about building and creating with your loved ones. Think about practicality, applicability, resourcefulness. Meditate on stability, security and abundance. Thank your mentors. On Feb 22, Venus lands on the same degree as Pluto. I think this will herald another huge exposure of sexual predators and financial corruption, so expect more news stories about wealthy powermongers falling from grace. Pluto is currently in the process of ripping every single institution out by its roots, shaking until all the old men fall out, and then casting these withered establishments out into the galaxy to burn up and never return. Any dance with Pluto signals that we are about to confront some serious shit. The last aspect I want to mention is a square with Uranus on Mar 1 (the very last day of Venus in Capricorn), and this means only one thing: EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED in your social/interpersonal life.
If you want to build a truly infallible foundation – if you envision a circle where everyone excitedly devours projects together – first consider how you can be most useful to the collective. How many good deeds can you perform today? Work well, and with great love and respect. Stay rooted with Capricorn Yoga. While Venus is in Capricorn, she is a morning star. Look for her at dawn in the east. If you were born with Venus in Capricorn, this is your Venus Return. To find your Venus sign, click here.
