After dashing around in sporty Sagittarius, Venus is now in calm, earthy Capricorn for the next three and half weeks. Capricorn may not be Venus’s favorite place to visit but she does appreciate this sign’s sense of style, often classic and understated. Even though Venus does understand Capricorn’s need to adhere to societal conventions, she can feel confined by all those rules.
In natal charts, Venus in Capricorn can team up with Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces Suns. Water and earth are natural allies so Venus in Capricorn helps intense Scorpio step back from the brink and choose the sensible option whilst she helps keep romantic Pisces from sacrificing all for Love. However Venus in Capricorn is less comfortable with fiery Sagittarius and intellectual Aquarius.
My younger sister has her Sun in Sagittarius with Venus conjoined the Moon in conventional Capricorn. When we were in our twenties, she was very disapproving of how I handled my love life. My overly romantic Libra Moon-Neptune conjunction and open-minded Venus in Sagittarius had no problem ignoring the societal rules of the times. I followed my heart and lived openly with my boyfriend in our small college town. My sister, on the other hand, followed the rules and married in her early twenties. She has been much happier with me since I got married and settled down. Of course it doesn’t hurt my Aries husband and I have a Capricorn Sun, Venus and Rising in our composite chart! We are the picture of a traditional married couple. *grin*
For some reason, I have dealt with very, very few Aquarius Suns with Venus in Capricorn. Those Aquarius who choose to consult with me tend to have Venus in Pisces . . . probably because of my chart’s water-air bias. What I have noticed is Venus in Capricorn reins in some of Aquarius’ more extreme fashion quirks and gives them a more polished, professional appearance.
Sun and Venus in Capricorn natally can be great for aging gracefully. Dolly Parton and Diane Keaton come to mind, both classics in their own way and both with Sun conjunct Venus in Capricorn. These are hard working ladies and we’re all the same age!
