Venus In Capricorn Values Structure

Filed in ASTROLOGY

Venus in Capricorn

Venus in Capricorn values structure, standards, and self-composure. Venus in Capricorn is the self-made woman, a person whose poise is not affected but rather the result of discipline and controlled thinking. People who are born with this placement have a naturally Saturnine approach to the Venusian realms of life; aesthetic, art, romance and fashion. They’re skilled at building things slowly, with focus. Examples? A complexion that glows from good nutrition. Abs that are the result of targeted exercise. If it takes time, Venus in Capricorn can do it. In love, they are the masters and mistresses of slow-burn courtships.

A few hours ago, Venus moved into the constellation of Capricorn. She is currently the brightest thing in the sky, pulsing away in Evening Star mode. She stays in Capricorn till December 8, then graces Aquarius and then moves into Pisces for a lengthy retrograde back and forward over the Zero Aries point that takes up the first several months of 2017. For more on that little special, see my 2017 books.

Venus in Capricorn Is Given To Sophisticated Pattern Recognition

But back to Venus in Capricorn; this is an ordinarily pragmatic influence, given to sophisticated pattern recognition and structured thinking around all the Venusian themes. That stance is under stress from alliances with the Change Gods Uranus and Pluto in late November and early December.  But it’s kind of hot.  And, bang on cue with Venus into Capricorn, because being influenced by the sign of the Time God makes you punctual – a question.

Dear Mystic

I am female and have Venus in Capricorn, as well as my Ascendant. Plus am a Scorpio. Am also feeling the after-effects of recent Venus square Chiron transit as it manifested with the serious illness of my cat. (And I would like to take the time to wish love and empathy to one of your other subscribers whose dog got a similar diagnosis)

Venus has therefore been on my mind, and I was wondering whether people who have Venus in Capricorn should expect anything in particular during a Venus in Capricorn transit. Have never really got what Venus in Capricorn is supposed to mean. Is it that we climb mountains only to find that the view from the top is cloudy on the day we reach it?

Even WORSE, part of me has always wondered whether being a low-road Venus in Cap type is valuing those you love for their material worth and not for themselves. Surely there must be much more to it, and I am merely showing heightened Scorp-like qualities in the lead up to next week’s full moon.

Venus In The Same Sign As Your Sun Is A Muse Energy

Dear Caildor,

Yes, that Venus-Chiron was poignant all right. Love & empathy to everyone having a tricky time of it. NOW – whenever Venus is in the same sign as your Sun Sign or your natal Venus sign, you experience an upsurge in Venusian Vibe. She is like a Muse energy. You can channel it into creativity, relationships, self-love or commerce.

So it is an excellent time to get a stronger grip on your Venusian energies and how they operate. If you desire something but you’ve been repressing it, up, it comes like lava during such Venusian action. Especially with Venus in Capricorn as the Love Goddess passes Pluto mid-way through her sojourn in Capricorn.

Low Road Venus in Capricorn conduct? I’m not sure. Edith Piaf and Maria Callas were both Venus in Capricorn – they gave their all to Art. Eva Braun was low road lots of things – not just her Venus in Capricorn. I think you can’t take Venus in isolation – to me, Venus in Capricorn says sophistication, knowing when to pick one’s battles and a nigh magic ability to apportion the correct amount of time/energy to relationships or attractions. Something that could seem calculating to those who would prefer that the V in C person just dropped everything and gave-gave-gave.

What does everyone else think?

As soon as venus went into Cap, my relationships became all about standards, structure and forward planning….

And I don’t even have venus in cap…but am a virgo…

Anyway, LOVING it.

I appreciate all the contributions here on this timely post about Venus in Cap, as the person who is in my sights is Venus (and Sun and Mercury) Capricorn.

He doesn’t give much away- but he does leave bread crumbs for my Venus in Aries to pick up on to find the trail, and my Scorp moon to obsess over.

Great bone structure, and quality through and through.

I’ve been in love with an Aqua man for about fours years who is only intermittently in my life. Hunky door stopping is all I get.. But every time I kick him to the kerb he does something to make me fall in love with him all over again. He is sag rising and Cap Venus and Sag Mars. He is quietly obsessed about money (maybe his cancer moon) but chooses to ignore the quality we have as a couple. Does anyone have any insights regarding men with Venus in Cap?

Ah, i’m natal Venus-Saturn square. I’m living it. If you want the space for good good Venus, you polish it up, clean it right back to elegance. And, as the good Lady intones always here, unclutter. There actually is rich and full love in all my life right now, i just never saw it even while i prepped it down to growth trim in the years before. I only mourned loss, and keened the loneliness, even while i relished it. My goodness, there is so much growing here! Still some deadened ends to trim back. Sorry to be vague Piscean… Read more »

Venus in Cap. I’m totally going with the need for quality. It doesn’t have to be trendy or new, just solid, well designed and built to last. I also really appreciate craftsmanship and the effort that goes into making beautiful things.

My natal Venus is in Capricorn 12th house, conjunct my early Aquarius ascendant. Mars in Aquarius 1st house. Moon in 11th Sagittarius conjunct Neptune. Venus in Capricorn forms a sextile to Uranus in 10th house Scorpio and a trine to North Node and Saturn in Virgo 8th house. Sun in Pisces 2nd House. Having both Venus and Mars return at the same time – don’t know what that is supposed to bring. I don’t remember the last time it happened. Anybody have any input on my placements, would love to hear it. Venus in Capricorn from my experience – very… Read more »

Interesting. I’m 8th house Venus Cap and I can be a swear like a sailor if in the mood but there is a certain kind of uncouth that I always find quite revolting and completely unnecessary and have been fairly clear on that since young. By that I mean I can see the reason for most behaviours whether I agree with them or not and therefore can understand them, make allowances or no but there are a selection of behaviours that I never do this with. Loyalty is a thing definitely and I have Taurus as well so when that’s… Read more »

Look at acid’s deleterious effect on teeth. You will find that not only sugars but liquor and the mouth first-stage digestion of carbs, fruit etc, as well as the impact of not enough hydration create acid in the mouth for your teeth. That’s how the digestive first stage is biologically designed. You cannot drink water just before or after a meal, to allow saliva a chance to do its work, so you need to consider drinking enough outside of eating times. Don’t rinse out food particles straight away: use floss or piksters. Avoid mouthwashes, unless they’re absolutely the one(s) recommended… Read more »

Thank you for this info – it’s invaluable! I didn’t know about not drinking water with or after food. Very helpful! Lucky you – with Mars in Capricorn, in it’s exaltation. Love that tooth pic 🙂

LOVING Venus in Cap!!! Hours after venus entered Cap $$$$ was deposited into my bank account from a buyer who purchased one of my paintings from my Grad show which is weeks away. Poor as a church mouse so those funds were much appreciated. Venus on my Cap asc and progressed Cap sun 🙂 Jupiter transiting my 9th house where venus in libra resides. Happy days.

WHOAH! Selling your artwork! In this clime, i just want to remind you that many people can’t sell their (overpriced, because that’s what they bought it at, or that’s where the market leaves them at now) houses. Well fqn done! An artist with Venus in Cap is definitely a force to be reckoned with. As someone with many so-called “arty” signifiers in my natal chart, i can tell you it was quite the learning to see the work ethic of the artists my family and others in their milieu financially supported. Previously, as a very young creative person, i had… Read more »

Oh- with venus conj merc in my 8th house Im feeling a little apprehensive about Senor Pluto trundling my way. Im only just coming out of a 2 yr tunnel of darkness..please no more!

UniversaliMM Member
Universali

So yeah- i was hoping for this post! As an 8th house Venus Cap w Aqua Sun i have been at a loss for creating a personal style im happy with . One part of me shuns materialism & even bothering to do hair/ make up etc. I feel like i should just be naturally me and above all that bizzo…but of course im not! My fashion sense is cross betweem hippy & grunge (style your gem asc post was spot on) but i think i am missing something like a general sense of class…ugh its too hot to type!

CentaurusMM Member
Centaurus

Well.. I don’t have a style as such and can relate to what you say Universali. I think I finally told myself it was ok to have style/s and moods and whims and whatever and dress accordingly. I don’t care now unless on occasion I see someone really well put together with a good sense of class and taste (and that don’t take loads of money to achieve)

CentaurusMM Member

Ah.. somehow that posted before I was finished…. … blah blah blah) and I’m feeling at a low ebee otherwise I’m a Saggi first and hippy, grunge is, it would seem, an eternal staple but loads of folk tell me I look good all suited up. I detest overly structured clothing though. I need movement and I have also needed to accept the way I do things. You’d think that’d be easier than accepting other’s ways but oftentimes it’s not. That’ could be Venus in Cap talking…. But I say why do you need an absolute style? You probably have… Read more »

I’m already digging the Venus in Cap vibe – Capricorns have a really solid energy about them, today I felt a whoosh and it was like I was in the zone: grounded + focused.

I have Venus at 6 degrees Capricorn, and it is the most aspected planet in my chart. It is also angular, just a few degrees off my Desc., though still in the 6th house.

Yeah, I can’t really interpret my Venus in isolation because of the influence of all the aspects to it in my natal chart.

My Venus is, within orb:

trine Jupiter in Virgo
sextile Moon in Pisces
square Saturn in Aries
square Uranus in late Virgo
opposite Ascendant in Cancer

minor aspects, but in exact orb, and angular:

quintile Mars/MC in Pisces
tredecile Pluto/IC in Virgo

I dig Venus in cap peeps. Very cautious, slow to decide folks… But I am biased as I have Venus in Virgo.

P.s. some people have a strong transit when Venus transits their sun or Venus. Money, gifts, hot dates galore. I don’t get anything except maybe a parking ticket. I suspect it could be because both my sun and Venus are in fall instead of exalted. Sort of like celebrating the birthday of a person you hated anyway.

QuiteLightMM Member

I have natal Venus in my sun sign Cap. I can actually see a lot of places where this shows! I self-taught myself style, skincare, makeup, hair styling, etiquette and social skills, etc. and am eyeing up interior design for the future, via copious amounts of reading, followed by careful practice and experimentation. With actual notes. But my style isn’t mainstream or cookie-cutter, and I feel like I needed all this to figure out how to create and execute things I wasn’t seeing around me.

I also hate it when things look cheap or low quality (regardless of their cost).

CentaurusMM Member
Centaurus

I also hate it when things look cheap and low quality .. and it’s ridiculous that should ever be the case if the cost is high for what it is. Good style and design should eliminate that and often it’s obvious what would have made it so. I would further extend that to some public displays of behaviour… sure everyone, go do say what you want , I don’t mind… but the cringe is automatic.

I have a Virgo 1st decan Mars Pluto Venus and l can wig out over shit products, poor service and inadequate systems. Esp as Mars 0* / Pluto 2* trine Sat 2* Cap.

CentaurusMM Member

You.. wig out Powder? Hehe.. no I get it, more in these times than ever before. It seems nothing is built to last even when they do overcharge you for it and service is sometimes ineffective empty politeness with nothing of substance underneath. It can be frustrating. Mars in Cap has been known to be let of the leash on occasion for that … 😉 On the other side of that is perhaps the opportunity for us all to wake up from our materialistic, over consuming slumber and see that the change we need to make is bigger than buying… Read more »

Depsite those planets being in the 2nd and 6th houses I am not really that materialistic. But I like what I like fiercely / fanatically.

As long as I got a European car or bike, natural fibre clothes / footwear and singer/songwriter music, I’m happy.

I take my Mars Pluto Dog to obedience classes.

QuiteLightMM Member

Centaurus, you’ve got a big part of it right there… if I have to partake in consumer society (and right now I do, since the wearing of clothing is nigh mandatory in my workplace, and I am not an all-homespun-back-to-raw-nature girl), I want to make sure that I get a good quality, highly functional, beautiful item for my trouble/money. If it’s good quality, I’ll be happier & I won’t have to return to the marketplace for that much longer.

milleunanotteMM Member
milleunanotte

Shitty service is dysfunctional, overly complicated and poorly designed too, and results in cheap fqn quality for the end user. And most likely also the poor everyday customer interface person who deals with the customer on a day-to-day level. I’ve learned to let my Merc in Aries (opposed and square bloody angry Uranus and Mars in a t-square) recognise this, and just use my swords with Sag humour and friendliness to that interface person, where appropriate, to call it up to the higher management, while thanking and reassuring the customer service officer. But only if the service officer shows some… Read more »

milleunanotteMM Member

Ha! Yes, Mars in Capricorn 2nd house, Saturn in Taurus 6th, plus Pluto in Virgo (think that’s 11th). Feel contemptuous of, well not so much cheap, but low quality poorly-executed shit. I still like random found free and utilitarian, and also cheap,items that are designed well, though 🙂

CentaurusMM Member
Centaurus

Yes, exactly and I don’t base my discernment on a theory that spending more = better as even more expensive things can be rubbish. I’ll pay a little or a lot if I’m getting my equivalent of bang for my buck. Spending more doesn’t mean you get more = better but sometimes you do indeed get what you pay for and others…well you get totally screwed on a piece of junk. So much of the clothing today is ok for a wash or two then it’s crap and that doesn’t matter if it’s $2 or $200.

serpentinegraceMM Member

OOOOH yes :3 I am a Moon-Venus-actually 5 planet Cap with a Virgo Rising so all this was self taught for me too, plus the Virgo makes me extremely calculating of even the most haphazard of “looks” (even my “oh, I had no time to put anything together” look… I’m totally full of it). Notes and lists were definitely paramount to the learning!

QuiteLightMM Member
QuiteLight

😀 OK, I’m not alone! I prefer to put in the work ahead of time, careful thought & selection of goods, so that when I have no time (or am not awake, since I’m up at 4:30 am), the pieces will still go together & look coherent on their own. But yeah, a lot of those looks were created ahead of time… formulas and uniforms are a godsend!

My sister is venus in cap, she married 8 years after she met her husband, she has always loved money and a certain level of security but not slavishly. She would just never put herself in a bad situation or any situation to be taken advantage of (unless she was getting paid well lol). It can look harsh but its smart.

venus in cap has discriminating taste and might prefer to live somewhere with a View. like a mountain top citadel, penthouse suite, hollywood hills (?), the Hinterland of anywhere. Defensible territory where one can surveil the terrain so to speak.

low road venus cap might be easily seduced by the trappings of status or ‘class’ but then again cap is rarely naive or fatuous so …not sure.

I’ve never felt recognition with descriptions of my Venus in Capricorn. I can be pragmatic, yes. But I have a history of falling madly, crazy, SILENTLY in love with certain men. My infatuations seem to late a very long time and i wonder am compulsive/obsessive? I’ve been mooning over a man abroad for a year now and I feel like I love him. But I’m still dating others for fear of scuppering my chances of love. And I’m very susceptible to fantasy…before a recent first date, I had already imagined us together and was figuring out how we’d manage our… Read more »

If the Moon and Neptune are in a strong trine, 120* (+/- ~5*) is where you’ll find that is it.

Any major aspect between the Moon and Neptune will play out in imaginings and dreams inspired by our emotional needs.
Knowing where the fall in the houses will more than double your understanding.

Yes, I think this is also a Venus/Cap thing. I’ve had a few quiet crushes over the years that haven’t dissipated quickly have been mostly private I guess. And as I’m typing and re-reading it could be that all that pragmatism gets used to structure the crush and life and therefore allows it to be maintained for longer than necessary.. it is the ever enduring sign of Cap which builds things to last right. Y’know… you do need to be thinking about logistics before you start something with someone in another country or when someone is diametrically opposed to a… Read more »

Oohh..me too! I never put this down to my venus cap. I had a ridiculous crush on a guy first yr uni, was so besotted could never actually talk to the guy (venus conj merc)
Another was a french guy i met in Amsterdam just before returning to oz after few yrs os. We spent one day together roaming around he left me with a cinematic kiss & me sobbing all the way back to the UK. I wrote him a letter on my flight home…a 30 page letter. Unsurprisingly, he did not write back 🙂

Oh yes.. the poignant distinction between worlds. Why something seemed so natural and approps at the time and upon reflection… it’s like yup, no surprises there!

I don’t now why we don’t see then suddenly see at times.

The other side is you’re obviously wonderfully romantic and able to express it and I guess you’ll never know if he actually got it or if you didn’t dodge one 🙂

“You can’t take Venus in isolation”, lol. The only person I know well with Venus in Capricorn is committed to isolation. When she tried to break out of her self-imposed isolation some time after her husband left, her husband’s pregnant partner (!You read that right – a Lo Cancerian) took time out to explain how evil Venus in Cap’s new romantic interest was, as she had worked with him and found him ‘offensive to women’ (like her behaviour in getting into a relationship with the father of Venus in Cap’s 2 kids was not offensive to our Venus in Cap… Read more »
