Venus in Capricorn 2024: Embracing Achievements and Value

Venus in Capricorn 2024: Embracing Achievements and Value"

Venus leaves its stay in adventurous, expansive Sagittarius at 12:50 am PST on January 23 and enters pragmatic and studied Capricorn, where it stays until it enters idealistic and detached Aquarius on February 16. What does Venus’ passage through Capricorn hold for all of us?

This brings the next shift in the energy of planets and houses we have in Taurus and Libra. Whereas the Summer brought us outgoing, inspired Venus in Leo, the Autumn gave us Venus in Virgo taught us that “to rule is to serve,” with an appreciation of good service and humility between mid-October and early November, and then Venus in Libra, giving balance, grace, and equilibrium between early and late November. We then entered Venus in Scorpio, bringing a deep and demanding intensity to all our Venusian affairs. We let go of a lot so that we could embrace a Winter’s Venusian dance in Sagittarius, which is what we just finished.

Venus in Sagittarius brought a new freedom and dance with the Fire of that sign. Whatever had been “cocooned” by Scorpio was now transformed by the openness of its time in Sagittarius. We have now found new beauty or worth in the life areas where we have Sagittarius, and can turn the truths we saw into forms of social power and/or responsibility now that Venus is in Capricorn.

Venus in Capricorn loves propriety, refined ways of relating to others, and a value for formality and established protocols. Venus in this sign is a worker, mainly to rid ourselves of that which is unpleasant or is no longer useful. It observes protocols and proprieties, always conducts itself with rectitude, and keeps its eye on the prize at all times. It knows how to plan, to wait, and to play the long game.

Venus in Capricorn is powerful, as it acts on its own initiative. Venus in Capricorn harmonizes with planets in the Earth and Water signs, brings those with Venus in Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn to a turning point in their relationships.

Venus in Capricorn is harmonious by mode with its Libra nature and frictional by sign but harmonious by element with its Taurus nature. In Capricorn it’s in its own 4th sign, as per its rulership of Libra, and in its own 9th sign, as per its rulership of Taurus.

In its own 4th it anchors its “balancing act” with practical groundedness which values a structurally solid foundation for its sense of fairness, justice, and sense of evenness. In its own 9th, it sees ways to plan how to accomplish a desired future by anticipating what it needs to sustain itself or enjoy life on its own terms, opening a higher view of values and how to use what we have to feed our future. So it has the familiar Cardinal power of self-mobilization while also the practical groundedness of its Earth qualities.

As Venus is a combination of Fixed Earth and Cardinal Air, the Cardinal Earth of Capricorn is both harmonious and frictional to different parts of its nature. However, as Capricorn is the 11th sign from Venus’ exaltation in Pisces, Venus can find friends and harmonious group relations in Capricorn, able to control its impulses to further qualities of its greatest development.

Venus in Capricorn is extraordinarily movable and practical as it is in a family element and mode. As it’s in the axis of the Archetype of “The Innocent/Primal,” this sign of the Sea-Goat is the Wisdom-Innocence of the Elder as they are instinctive, child-like, and self-interested, yet without thought of ulterior reward.

It should be good for people with Sun in Capricorn, because when Venus comes to visit your Sun, you could find yourself beholding something or someone of great beauty or value who can illuminate you in Venusian ways. Because it is the backdrop to how planets in Taurus and Libra express themselves, if things move away from the freedom and lightness of Sagittarius into more serious interactions, see how you’re being called to be a good diplomat or ambassador for your Higher Self and whatever work you’re doing.

So welcome to the gateway to a new Venusian experience which will lead us to a more thoughtful, calculated, and formal way of viewing self and others. Observe any feelings about interactions being a chore or a bore, and let them lead you to understanding why you are or aren’t accepting the terms of that relationship. Take a look at what you have ever been attracted to related to duties, responsibilities, and accepting power, and see how each one called you to display a greater social maturity. By the time Venus enters Aquarius in late February, we’ll see more clearly where our likes, loves, and values are leading us to, and will be able to see clearly where our ideal in relationship is in the months and years to come.

And now, a word from our sponsor, before we resume with Venus through the signs and what we can expect in the near future after this break!

The Magic of Venus: Friendships, Soul Mates, and Twin Flames

Each transit Venus makes through a sign adds to our Venusian experience, enabling us to shape our likes and affections toward newer and better values and relationships. As our Venus response evolves, we have the capability to enjoy the subtle pleasures in life to the fullest. No longer over-indulgent or self-denying, we can choose what to like and find a rich appreciation for the banquet of life experiences which are ours for the enjoying!

Venus’ duality is Wisdom/Folly. By our Venus responses, we are led out of misguided values, vanities, and ways of interacting into the wisdom of “Right Relationship.” In esoteric philosophy, Venus is said to be the elder sister of the Earth, so perhaps our Venus shows us how to refine what is of value and leave the superficial and vain imaginings of the ego behind, just as humanity is learning globally at this time in history. Venus is definitely part of the equation in our personal and interpersonal happiness.

Because Venus changing signs shows us our own changing tastes as well as the changing tastes of those around us, you can find out more about what you like and why you like it, as well as how Venus functions in Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, and all the signs in my book The Magic of Venus: Friendships, Soul Mates, and Twin Flames. It is the most comprehensive book on Venus ever written, and explains why we attract who we do and how to create more satisfying relationships in the future. It is a combination of psychological, astrological, spiritual, and experiential knowledge and wisdom accumulated over a 60 year period.

This work offers all you could want to know about the power of your inner Venus and how you can make your relationships more fulfilling because you are living a Soul-ful life. You’ll find out about why you like or don’t like people and things, why you’ve attracted who you have in the past and present, and how to make those attractions more aligned with your Soul purpose in the future. You’ll understand why Soul Mates come into our lives, and how to know the difference between a Soul Mate and our Twin Flame.

It has chapters on the qualities of each sign’s natural mate, the qualities of Venus in each sign, Venus retrograde, and when crucial choices and changes are made, affecting who we attract in the future. It was written for both astrologers and lay people, and as it has a thousand gems for better relationships, with self, others, and Source, please consider getting your copy by going to the link above! (And when you’re done, please leave a review on Amazon, since it helps the book and all other books on astrology as well!)

Past As Prologue and A Guide for the Future

The planet transits through the zodiac should be seen in terms of “dual pulses,” initiated by the Fire and Air signs and “confirmed” by the Earth and Water signs. We’ve just been through the dual pulse which began in Sagittarius and will be grounded in Capricorn. This is solidly in the spiritual/transpersonal sector of the zodiac, permitting us to take the social experience of Venus in Leo, Virgo, Libra, and Scorpio into another dimension of human experience.

The balancing, refining energy of Venus in Libra, deepened in magnetic attraction/repulsion in Scorpio, then entered a new realm in Sagittarius, much broader and wider in scope than anything Venus has experienced since it left Pisces in February 2023 and entered Aries, initiating this particular journey around the zodiac.

Venus in Capricorn brings yet another a turning point in the voyage of Venus through all the zodiacal signs. So let’s take a look at the last 2 cycles of Venus to get a sense of what’s been and what’s coming.

In early May 2022, Venus left Pisces and entered Aries. Venus in Pisces feels everything there is to feel, while Venus in Aries feels what is immediate and passing, leaping forward into relationships and quick to like and “unlike” things. Venus in Aries opens new likes, new values, new appreciation, and more directness in all interactions. In 2023 Venus occupied Aries from mid-February through late March.

Venus in Taurus savors each moment. Venus in Taurus likes what it likes and is not inclined to try new things unless they’re easy and pleasant. While Venus in Aries is highly agitated, Venus in Taurus likes comfort and ease. We experienced Venus in Aries and Taurus in May and June 2022. In 2023 Venus occupied Taurus between mid-March and mid-April.

When Venus was in Gemini late June through late July 2022 it began a new “pulse,” and we experienced a more curious, open and adaptable approach to our likes, loves, and fancies. Venus in Gemini gives a “love of learning,” a love of exploring all the ideas there are to explore which capture the imagination. It is good with words and ideas, and solves information puzzles by seeing ways to put them together. We learned new Venusian likes, values, and the social promise in Gemini. In 2023 Venus occupied Gemini between mid-April and early May.

Venus then moved through Cancer between late July through mid-August 2022, giving opportunities to secure what nurtured us and allowed us to have deeper relationships. Venus in Cancer loves deep, tender connections with people and experience. While it is VERY sensitive, it is also the most caring placement for Venus, because it rules Taurus, the exaltation of the Moon. The Moon does well in Venus signs, and Venus does well in Lunar signs (I include Leo, as the Moon is the spiritual ruler of Leo, as I explain in Saturn, Spiritual Master, Spiritual Friend. In 2023 Venus occupied Cancer between early May and early June.

Venus in Leo began a new pulse mid-August through early September 2022, and took the introversion and sensitivity of Cancer and turned it outward in creative and dramatic forms of expression. Venus in Virgo for almost all of September completed this dual pulse by learning to value expressing “significant form” and “divine Discernment.” Leo gave us a new enthusiasm and sense of heartfelt liking and loving of things and people, and Virgo helped us find the place and function of each detail in our lives.

In 2023 Venus spent an abnormally long time in Leo, as it entered that sign on June 5, went stationary retrograde at 29 Leo on July 22, and retrograded back to 13 Leo, where it went direct on September 3 and finally entered Virgo on October 8. It stayed in that sign until early November, when it entered Libra.

In the previous Venus cycle, the next dual pulse (Libra-Scorpio) began when Venus entered its home sign of Libra at the end of September 2022. Venus in Libra is said to value and express more balanced, reasoned, beautiful and “symmetric” interactions and experiences. It is interactive, gracious, and wants to make forms more pleasing. In Scorpio, Venus’ reorients our social instincts toward a deeper connection with self and others, and a greater intensity and scrutiny of all our interactions with the world. Venus in Scorpio teaches us about what we can attract and how to do it, as well as what we cannot hold on to because the magnetism is no longer there. In 2023 Venus was in Libra between early November and early December, and then occupied Scorpio through the end of December.

In 2022, we began a new pulse with Venus in Sagittarius from mid-November to the second week of December, when it entered Capricorn. Venus in Sagittarius brings openness and a willingness to dance, appreciating the spaces which allow us freedom to explore each other, and seeing how what we value feeds our future or not. It values freedom and higher, broader truths, whether others agree with them or not. Venus was in Sagittarius from late December 2023 to now.

Venus in Sagittarius takes all which was “cocooned” in Scorpio and allows it to fly free. It then takes those truths and potential futures and organizes values and interactions into forms of personal power in Capricorn. That love of propriety and maturity in relationships naturally lead us to see our power in the broader context of society. Venus in Capricorn teaches us about the value of personal power and more mature interactions. This year Venus enters Capricorn toward the end of January 2024 where it stays through mid-February when it again enters Aquarius.

Venus’ in Aquarius leads us to value or appreciation for our ability to make a greater contribution to others or society as a whole, with an ease of maturity and an ability to feel a part of a greater group contribution. This year Venus will transit Aquarius between February 16 and March 11, 2024 and then enters Pisces.

Venus in Aquarius teaches us how to enjoy more of a sense of being part of a greater group work. Venus then takes the vision and affection for a greater good into the depth waters of Pisces, where it feels all the empathy and compassion there is to feel while understanding the value of saying goodbye, forgiving much as it passes down the stream of Time. Venus in Pisces gives us a renewed swim in the ocean of infinite compassion.

From Here We Dance On

Venus’ entry into Capricorn is the gateway to a new Venusian experience which will lead us to a greater appreciation and value for our ability to be mature adults with mature values and mature relationships. Evaluate what social protocols you’re good with, and which need to be dropped in the face of “hard realities and responsibilities” which will come into focus with Venus in Capricorn.

This time is one of greater social maturity and diplomacy, and could bring relationships with responsible and thoughtful people. Venus in an Earth sign brings practical utility to our relationships, so try to be the best you that you can be, even if you feel insecure about how people are viewing you. Still, enjoy the control over life which comes with Venus in this practical Earth sign, let go of getting entangled with lesser things, or those things and people who would unnecessarily restrict you by their rules.

With Venus in Capricorn, we learn to enjoy being our own boss. Show genuine appreciation for those who are genuinely caring for you and others and you might find you’re having a great party! Venus is now tracking the path of the Sun, with a long term conjunction beginning in April.

As our Venus response evolves, we have the capability to enjoy the subtle pleasures in life to the fullest. No longer over-indulgent or self-denying, we can choose what to like and find a rich appreciation for the banquet of life experiences which are ours for the enjoying! The Magic of Venus is available to all who want to improve all their relationships and join with Soul Mates to bring forth the best of our Higher Self.
