Venus is the planet of love, beauty and harmony. It governs our relationships (particularly our love life) and embodies harmony and cooperation in all its forms. Every year, Venus spends some time in each sign of the zodiac only once, spreading its message of beauty and love to all. As it moves into each new sign, that sign affects how Venus does its work in the world, which in turn affects us here on earth. By understanding what it means when Venus is in a particular sign, we can figure out how to harness its power and strengthen our friendships, romantic relationships and professional connections. Here’s what Venus in Capricorn means for all of us.

The overview: Sagittarius’s party energy stops in its tracks when Venus enters industrious Capricorn, but don’t be fooled: This is still an important time for growth. Capricorn is bringing some seriousness to your relationships, doing away with the frivolous Sagittarius energy and adding some much-needed rules and discipline. This is a time for figuring out what you expect from your relationships and letting those standards be known. Rule breakers beware.
Love: If Venus in Sagittarius is Bachelor in Paradise, Venus in Capricorn is The Bachelor proper. In short, you’re looking for someone who’s here for the right reasons. Commitment and stability are the name of the game when Venus is in Capricorn, so expect anything but the most serious romantic prospects to fall by the wayside and fast.
Career and finances: Capricorn is the CEO of the zodiac, so its presence is great for your wallet and your work relationships. While Sagittarius had you feeling flaky at best, Capricorn has you keeping your commitments to others, especially at work. You’ll be attracted to other ambitious, driven people during this time, so people you meet in your field now could end up playing a much larger role in your career down the line.
Mood: While Venus in Capricorn isn’t as fun-loving as Venus in Sagittarius, it can still do wonders for the deepness and sincerity of your relationships. Seeing things with greater clarity gives you the motivation you need to shed superficial relationships and lock in on the ones that really matter.
