Venus Retrograde in Capricorn: Love in Review

Even though a brand-new year is nearly upon us, love goddess Venus is still moving backwards until January 30, which means that romance may be delayed as we roll into 2014. Rather than start a new romance or begin a new chapter with someone you love, there's a good chance you'll be drawn to reconnect with an ex, or revisit old relationship rituals.

It may be hard to escape the ghosts of relationships past now, but you don’t have to go back to the way things were. As you reminisce about old love, think of it as a way to learn from the past. If you made a mistake, forgive yourself and look to the future. If you didn’t get what you wanted, reflect on what you could do differently going forward.

With Venus retrograde in Capricorn, clear boundaries and expectations are essential to happiness in love. This is the most serious, practical version of Venus; so if your love life feels ungrounded, use this retrograde review cycle to help you get back on track.

If you’re attached, spend time reviewing what’s worked well for the two of you -- and clarify the experiences you’d like to leave in the past. Single? Enjoy quality time with friends and family. Instead of chasing a new flame, focus on clarifying your relationship needs and wants.

A ritual to release the past, like letting go of keepsakes and your own personal fears, can help clear love baggage that's affecting your relationship. If you’ve been dealing with an ongoing love issue, some acceptance can help you move forward.

Second chances for missed romantic opportunities are possible in February, when Venus is direct again. Allow the pace of love to stay slow in January and you’ll be in the right frame of mind to move forward romance-wise when Venus gets back on track in February -- just in time for a stellar Valentine’s Day!
