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.
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
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.
