During the 2021 annual visit of Venus in Capricorn from January 8th - February 25th, you’ll find that difficulties become easier to deal with, and that obstacles are much easier to work around. Despite the easing of pressure that comes with this planetary placement, don’t expect any amorous fireworks, because despite the romantic and pleasure-seeking nature of Venus, Capricorn brings out her logical, determined, and practical side.
The materialistic essence of this sign-planet combination will be out there and in-your-face – you’re likely to be constantly assaulted with advertising that creates a dire need to spend money on things. If you’re being responsible about your financial circumstances, you’re likely to get through this time without substantial losses.
Sometimes, this astrological combination promotes a degree of calm and maturity by politicians and leaders. Venus in Capricorn represents human activity regarding the environment and nature; you may hear news about people around the world trying to protect their environment, take action on clean energy, or work to halt climate change.
This positive environmental action is also aided by Saturn at its strongest and Pluto. Both planets are in Capricorn, and while together, they speak of great responsibility, while Venus brings the forces of harmony and balance to the table.
Everyone will experience Venus in Capricorn differently, so let’s take a look at how this combination affects your zodiac sign.
Venus in Capricorn for an Aries (Aries dates: March 20 - April 19)
The transit of Venus through Capricorn occurs in your Solar 10th house. This is the house of career, status and reputation. Your credit rating is part of this house, as is your ability to create future prosperity. If you spend this time being responsible to yourself, your community and your loved ones, Aries, this can be a very fruitful transit. If you devote your time to shopping for expensive items to put on a show of increased status, your financial scores will dip, and they may take a while to recover. Career matters will tend to be pleasant, Aries, and if you work in harmony with others, you will thrive.
Venus in Capricorn for a Taurus (Taurus dates: April 20 - May 20)
This planetary transit through Capricorn occurs in your Solar ninth house, which has to do with law, spiritual practices and higher knowledge. Venus is also the planet that rules your sign, so she’ll support you in your efforts to bring your dreams, ideals and goals into manifestation. Taurus is said to be a materialistic sign, and this transit of Venus will certainly amplify that, but instead of being all about money, it will help you gain a stronger and more practical sense of purpose. Travel and legal matters are favorable now. The astrology also favors study of deeper subjects and spiritual practices such as prayer, meditation or anything that promotes self-awareness and personal growth.
Venus in Capricorn for a Gemini (Gemini dates: May 21 - June 20)
Capricorn is your Solar eighth house of financial responsibilities, shared wealth and money that comes from sources other than your regular income. With Venus in this sign, Gemini, if you take a logical or practical approach to improving your financial circumstances, there is no doubt that you can reduce debt, limit unnecessary spending or otherwise diminish the outward cash flow that this house usually brings. It’s even possible that you may receive money from grants, loans, legacies, or speculation – but don’t bank on it happening in a life-changing way. That would not only be irresponsible, but could undermine the positive aspects of this transit.
Venus in Capricorn for a Cancer (Cancer dates: June 21 - July 21)
Since the Venus transit through Capricorn falls in your Solar seventh house of partnerships and negotiations, you’ll find this period of time to be one that emphasizes cooperation and mutual success, rather than the effort to achieve personal goals. Business or personal negotiations are likely to go well as long as your focus is on harmony, balance and fairness. Partners in business or your personal life are likely to appreciate the practical and mature perspective you bring to the table. This transit favors logic, and that means your personal connections with others will benefit from the harmony Venus brings.
Venus in Capricorn for a Leo (Leo dates: July 22 - August 22)
Capricorn is your Solar sixth house, Leo, which means that Venus will be transiting through the area concerned with wellness and your relationship with subordinates or co-workers. This year, the transit will focus mostly on wellness. Venus in this house tends to protect you from the worst possibilities. This is not an excuse to have too much fun, because you’ll need to keep a balanced routine and let the Venus transit do its thing. As far as other matters of the sixth house are concerned, you can expect positive responses from those you treat in a fair and balanced way. You can turn enemies into helpful associates while this combination is active.
Venus in Capricorn for a Virgo (Virgo dates: August 23 - September 22)
This transit of Venus through Capricorn should be quite pleasant for you, since Capricorn is in your Solar fifth house of fun and entertainment. Venus has a special relationship with the Earth signs Virgo, Taurus and Capricorn, and when it transits any one of them, it benefits the other two. With Venus in Capricorn you can expect friendship to take on special meanings, and sharing time with friends should be quite enjoyable. As if that weren’t enough, things that you take satisfaction from will somehow seem to be more fulfilling. Because this transit is so practical and efficient, you’ll find it easy to handle things that normally get in the way of your enjoyment.
Venus in Capricorn for a Libra (Libra dates: September 23 - October 22)
This might be one of your favorite transits in a while Libra, because Venus makes her trip through Capricorn in your Solar fourth house. It will bring harmony and balance into your home, making it a safe haven from the chaos of the outside world. The more practical side of this transit shows you spending time with things that need to be done in your home, and your more materialistic side may take the opportunity to replace outworn devices, especially kitchen appliances. In fact, Libra, this transit might herald a decorating trend that carries forth into the next year. It can also increase the comfort and coziness of your home.
Venus in Capricorn for a Scorpio (Scorpio dates: October 23 - November 21)
This Venus transit will fall in your Solar third house, Scorpio, which concerns communication, transportation and your local area. This means you’ll focus on the devices you use for communication, such as mobile phones and computers. If you want to upgrade for practical reasons, like purchasing newer technology to make your work life easier, or just to get all the newest bells and whistles, this is a good time to do so. You might also think about picking up some new software skills to enhance your work or career. The neighbors may do something fun in the local area, Scorpio, and if it’s at all possible, you should join in.
Venus in Capricorn for a Sagittarius (Sagittarius dates: November 22 - December 20)
As Venus transits Capricorn, it will be moving through your Solar second house of money. Unless you’re a big spender who goes for anything that is presented in an attractive way, Sagittarius, this period can be quite favorable for you. Venus has a known tendency to ease financial tension, but it also favors building wealth over spending it on personal enjoyment. One of this planet’s favorite mottoes is “Wealth is not measured by what you earn, it is measured by what you keep.” You should take this to heart. Do your best to target your spending on necessary but practical things, and look for ways to develop a better relationship with financial advisors.
Venus in Capricorn for a Capricorn (Capricorn dates: December 21 - January 19)
Venus is now transiting your sign, Capricorn, and emphasizing its positive aspects. You’ll probably experience people being more appreciative of you, and you can also expect your appearance and presence to be upgraded somehow. This is a perfect time to think about your personal style and what it can do for you, professionally and otherwise. If you’re not into that sort of thing at all, you’ll probably get some positive comments on your appearance anyway. Any creative efforts you make during this period will be well regarded and enhance your status among your peers. Your personal charm or charisma is heightened now, so lay it on thick.
Venus in Capricorn for an Aquarius (Aquarius dates: January 20 -February 17)
This Venus transit visits your Solar 12th house, or house of secrets. The most practical thing you can do is to keep your plans or ideas from becoming public property, Aquarius. Do this by keeping personal matters out of your general conversation. Venus, while transiting this house, will act somewhat like a Guardian Angel – it remains a quiet but supportive force that enhances whatever you’re doing. It can also bring in the good wishes of others in unexpected ways. If you have the opportunity to visit with the old or infirmed, do so; Venus loves being helpful.
Venus in Capricorn for a Pisces (Pisces dates: February 18 - March 19)
While Venus is transiting Capricorn, it falls in your Solar 11th house of friends, associates and group activities. It means the pleasant enjoyment of spending time with friends and allies, Pisces, but this year it has a special role. The 11th house also has to do with hopes and wishes, and how you go about fulfilling them. Venus can make this easier than it’s been for a while. Maybe you’ve been working on manifesting something important to you, Pisces, but Venus will supercharge your efforts, especially if your goal is practical and material in nature. Venus can bring in allies that can support your plans with their unique skills, or kick friendship up a notch.
