Lady Venus enters practical and pragmatic Capricorn on January 23rd at 3:32 PM EST, residing there until she enters quirky Aquarius on February 16th at 11:17 PM EST. This is a short time for Capricorns to rally their forces and find their true love! As Lady Venus traverses through the 30 degrees of Capricorn, each degree will be visited by her beauty, elegance and elan! However our Lady is moving quickly so there isn’t much time to be spent in longing from afar or waiting to be noticed. Our Capricorn would-be lovers must strike while the burning embers of Venus loving caress is within their grasp. ‘Oho’ you say — this is not Capricorn’s style — slow, steady, step-by-step is more to their liking — but in this scenario — time is of the essence — and Capricorns must get the attention of their would-be intended as soon as possible. Once they have established a friendly contact — they can then take their time in wooing and courting as considerately and carefully as they like. Remember according to Alfred Lord Tennyson — “ ‘Tis better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all”.
Lady Venus in Capricorn is elegance personified — noble, smart, no-nonsense, and yes even queenly! Her good taste is obvious in her fashion, home-decor, choice of vehicle, and profession. No entry-level jobs for this Lady of Venusian persuasion — rather a take-charge business executive, fashionista, gallery owner, fastidious caterer, doctor, lawyer or any place her education, knowledge and style sense will be of value. She could rule the World with her grasp of politics and business — become the leader of a high-tech industry — or be the Mom on the block everyone envies! Perhaps not as warm and huggable as our usual Venus Ladies, she makes up for it with confidence, know-how and the ability to hone in on what needs to be done and she does it efficiently and with little fuss.
January 23rd is also the day of the Full Moon in Leo — adding a royal touch to the day! Emotions may be running high and it would be wise to keep an eye on your personal property, purse or credit cards. Also if out late on this Saturday evening be aware of slippery conditions (here in New England especially) — and be cautious of reckless drivers. Also you never have to take back words you don’t say! Think about the worth of any angry outbursts and perhaps hold your tongue!
