Are Venus in Capricorn relationships often with people who are much older? Traditionally, it’s a Venus sign that’s said to be drawn to age + wisdom. It was this query that made me think about it.
I have Venus in Capricorn, as do a lot of the friends I went to school with. An unusually high proportion of us has ended up with much older men. My husband is 12 years older, and two other women I know with Venus in Cap have ended up with men approximately 30 years older (after being the catalyst for the breakup of each man’s marriage.) Is this attraction to older men a common experience for all women with Venus in Capricorn? Are we all doomed to be attracted to the security of middle-age over the danger of wild youth?

Venus In Capricorn Relationships Are By Nature, Secure And Grounded
Hi Saturn-ruled Aquarius,
You should have been around for the Chrono-Sex post. That was more about Venus-Saturn aspects pre-disposing peeps to age gap relationships. But hey why not Venus in Capricorn? It’s similar. Twelve years age difference does not seem that much older to me but 30 is a whole Saturn cycle older.
There is an age-gap “rule” that I once read from the Scorpio Sexologist Tracey Cox. She said that the younger of the duo should not have been born after the older person in the couple had lost their virginity. There is also a French rule that I think Colette wrote about: the younger person should be twice the age of the older one minus seven. But no wait, that can’t be it. Half the age plus seven years? Anyway, forgetting the rules, Venus in Capricorn people are drawn to maturity and self-assurance.
Venus in Capricorn relationships are, by nature, secure and grounded. That whole Chaos Addiction “but they’re hot” scene does not appeal to you.
F.Y.I. The director Sam Taylor-Johnson is married to Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who is 23 years younger than her. She has Venus-Saturn in Aries, he has Venus in Capricorn and trine Saturn.
Is it possible that conventionally, men have done the whole second-marriage-with-someone-younger scenario but that now, female financial independence is meaning they too can make more fluid choices?
Maybe if you have Venus in Capricorn, you have an older lover/husband until your second Saturn Return and then suddenly wham; you switch to down-age-dating?
