“Every time that I look in the mirror, all these lines on my face getting clearer ... you know it’s true … all the things you do come back to you.’’
When love goddess Venus enters the no-nonsense terrain of Capricorn on January 8, we start to take our relationships seriously. There is something karmic about this transit where we experience the way we have treated others and have to face our own demons in the love department. Have you been relating from the place of an adult or a child? How has time affected your relationship style?
Venus in Capricorn asks if we have the maturity, wisdom and patience to sustain our love life -- even in the face of the toughest challenges. Do we roll up our sleeves and get to work, or throw in the towel? This transit urges us to build relationships with integrity. Without a solid foundation, there's no real long-term potential -- and Capricorn is all about the long haul.
Capricorn can be one of the most traditional signs of the zodiac, so during this run we may feel more conservative and plugged in to the desires that are more accepted by society. Venus in Capricorn prefers a quality gift from Tiffany’s (or any institution tried, true and respected) and a marriage proposal rather than a hot romp in the sack. Quality is key for the next few weeks, and others will be looking for holes in your integrity. Flip-floppers, cheaters and those with commitment issues need not apply.
This is also a time when we can fall in love with our career or other worldly aims. Saturn rules Capricorn, and is the planet that tests us to see if we have the kind of staying power required to see our commitments through.
Are your relationships – romantic and business -- time-tested? If not, get ready to experience some of the cracks in the foundation over the next few weeks. Relate from your most dignified self, and offer nothing less than your best and you’ll experience the wisdom that Venus in Capricorn offers.
