Venus in Capricorn: Vintage Heart

I’ve written a brief post about Venus in Capricorn before, but never a serious one (although Venus in Capricorn folks have taken it all with much somber seriousness). So here is the thing: There is a very high chance that if your Venus is in Capricorn, it is conjunct Uranus and Neptune. Hence it has a unique expression to anything you will read online. However, even if your Venus is adjusted by the expression of outer planets and other interesting factors- it is still ruled by Saturn.
This means your Venus is like a wine that gets finer with age. It is also a Venus that seeks mastery in various forms and this also applies to personal relationships. Your Venus wants to learn what structures, values and principles can best support achieving harmonious relationships and the pleasures of life. For you see, this is an indulgent position (followed only by Venus in Leo and Taurus)! Venus in Capricorn has a natural inclination towards structure (Saturn) and luxury (Venus). They, therefore, value anything that is well made and prefer quality over quantity. They can enjoy anything vintage because Saturn rules the past and tradition. In the past, things were made with great attention to durability, functionality, and quality. The preference for practicality and quality would be evident in the choices you make. Curiously, many Venus in Capricorn natives are skilled collectors of bags, shoes, vintage jewelry, historical artifacts and even furniture. At the same time, others may have a good feel for buying property that can become valuable over time. Home design and architecture are also popular careers for this Venus because they require long-term effort with material evidence to support the hard work. There is a general preference of this Venus to want to master something and achieve durability. This preference tends to color how Venus in Capricorn views their career, personal relationships and even their body. For example, some Venus in Capricorn natives turn their own body into the prime project of effort with varying in results. They can work out at the gym or go to various extremes to strengthen and perfect their physical abilities. Things go bad when this Venus is not oriented on self-mastery but instead seeks the approval of society. In fact, the biggest issue with Venus in Capricorn is attempting to gain social approval and status through their hard work or appearance. Saturn likes social status and authority and the natives naturally gravitate towards achieving power via their hard work. This makes them very dedicated to master skills and to better themselves but it can come at a price. It is important they know they are valuable regardless of social approval. A healthy Capricorn Venus develops skills and a distinct personal style that is above other people’s approval. They just want to be good at what they do so they can respect themselves and sleep at night. They want to live life as their own boss and without anyone telling them what to do. They can motivate themselves to work hard without a boss standing over their shoulder. In contrast, an unhealthy Venus in Capricorn can work itself into complete exhaustion and be troubled by constant performance anxiety. They will always seek the approval of authority figures to tell them they are worthy and beautiful. The most important thing is for them to develop independent values that shape their choices so that they are less likely to allow other people to define their worth. Success is something they want and are skilled at achieving and they need to trust they have what it takes to live life on their own terms. For you see: they are actually very stoic, independent and individualistic. Saturn is a mature planet and it can be very liberating. Yes! I said Saturn and liberating in the same sentence…But there is freedom in timelessness. The Venus in Capricorn can orient itself only on that which has been proven to be good and worthy over time…And develop a unique taste for life in the process. It won’t care as much what anyone else considers beautiful (unless it is insecure). Beauty would become that which is righteous and good! Morality becomes beautiful. A certain spirituality is indicated for this Venus because it values responsibility and action. This Venus would have a graceful disposition born from long-term cultivation of their own personality. They will polish their Self into the perfect timeless diamond until only the most beautiful parts remain. They need to respect themselves and to respect you.

“Above all, don’t lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love.” 

― From Venus in Capricorn Fyodor Dostoevsky, 

In romantic relationships, Venus in Capricorn is all about long-term effort, durability, loyalty and investment. It tends to view people through the principle of value. When this principle is applied to relationships, the result is a person loyal to the people they find valuable or important regardless of whether the relationship seems fruitful or pleasurable. This can result in the Venus in Capricorn native staying in relationships that don’t serve them because they believe in the long and hard climb towards success. They can become too focused on a person’s future potential and invest too much time and effort into someone who is not good for them. They tend to find ambition very attractive but it can blind them from seeing the person is all talk and no action. That is if they are not too wounded by previous romantic relationships to the point of avoiding anyone who doesn’t meet a pre-set list of requirements. I personally think having a set of standards I good for this Venus- they should be clear about their expectations and not waste their time. So, what does Venus in Capricorn really enjoy and want? As with everything, they will gravitate towards a “quality” person. A person that has proven their skill or effort professionally is likely o be attractive. They are also very attracted to someone who can nurture them and help them relax after all their efforts. This is because of the principle of Cancer, the opposite sign to Capricorn. They want someone who is warm, can create a cozy atmosphere and nurture them. Nurture can come through, answering their physical needs or just offering general safety. A person who becomes their home is what they secretly crave. They are also very attracted to the idea of partnering with someone to build something lasting- be it a home, a family or a business. But it can time to win them over completely. Their stoic and independent nature can make them avoid jumping into anything that has not been proven yet but if the person is consistent and genuine, they will melt. You will see them enjoy the pleasures of a luxurious and enjoyable life that is the reward for all their efforts. They will love it if their partner seems very capable in some area. Better yet, if the person is not trying to show off and is just genuinely capable. Like all Earth Venus placements, there is a preference for authenticity over showmanship. Unless you are showing them off- they do enjoy your pride in them tremendously.
They don’t want something that glitters but something that lasts. That doesn’t mean they are not terribly romantic at heart because they do believe in creating something out of nothing and that requires a certain romantic streak- to believe that it is possible to build an empire out of thin air with the person you love is not for the faint of heart! They could have a fantasy of being kings or queens sitting at the throne with their loved one. They would find the image very attractive and something to strive for even if it requires great sacrifice. They want to build an empire and they want you to show them what skills you bring to the table to achieve this. Don’t try and impress them with words but with actions. Men with this placement would gravitate towards women who appear professional or have social status. for example, women who are natural-born socialites or even famous for an achievement. You often see them gravitate towards Leo or Libra women for this reason. Saturn also rules the bones so they tend to like thin and tall-looking women with sharp cheekbones. Women with this placement tend to embody the above-described archetype- they tend to be stylish, with a no-nonsense approach and a captivating air of authority. They can appear very formal or very laid back but usually have a good eye for expensive quality things or bargains. Some women become whatever society wants to see instead of developing the delicate personal style that this Venus is capable of.

The higher octave of Venus in Capricorn is all about giving structure to love so that it can flourish. The person would value self-improvement as a lifestyle and want to have relationships with people who can support that goal. These people are romantics at heart because they focus on improving their ability to love and be loved- they see it as a life project worthy of their ambition. They also tend to view love as something that is not about just them but part of social responsibility. For example, they can consider how their relationships relate to what their grandparents had to go through or how it will impact their future children. They can feel that whatever they achieve matters so much more when relating to their ancestors, family, or children. As a result, they are responsible and can put their playful and mischievous side to rest for the greater goal. In turn, this would allow them to choose a romantic partner through a prism based on personal responsibility. Don’t let them fool you- they take you seriously so don’t break their vintage heart.

Love your Venus: part 1

Note: If you have more than two planets in a sign or house then perhaps reading the Venus for that would be more accurate as well as the actual placement.

Venus is so important in your chart, I really can’t stress this enough. What is Venus in your chart?  You probably think about Venus as being the planet of love, beauty and money- and you are right. But in human development Venus is a little more than that. When you are born you are born as your Sun sign- you ego, your father and your true self. Your Moon is your home and mother, your nurturing and your emotional learning in childhood. Mercury is our skill set in later years- when you learn to speak and make connections with others that are called friendships.   All this is your base- what made you who you are very early in life. Venus is the love you are able to give and receive based on all the other experiences and connections you have had- because Venus rules your values  and they developed as a result of the nurturing from parents ,friends ,brothers sisters and the community and country at large. There are only 12 signs for your Venus to reside, so what makes your Venus your own is so much more:  The house and the aspects and the whole chart have to be taken into consideration. Nevertheless, here is a simple but true break down of Venus placements according to what makes you feel good and what can help you when you don’t feel love.

Venus in Aries:  Love needs to be open, based on honesty and without heavy restrictions. Your learned to give others affection and physical connection without limits. You are very warm and giving without thought and because of that you expect others to give the same in return. They may have called you selfish for wanting to get your own way, never realizing you are more than happy to return affection in return. Like a child you play with fire and you get burned, so you must learn that not everyone is worthy of you. You grow up and develop pride that hides behind it the hurt and burns of your past. To heal you must let go and open tis flood of passion to the world- your will suffer less being able to be yourself.

Venus in Taurus: Your love needs to be real, something that cannot be taken away from you. Empty promises force you to turn cold to others. You are fully capable of loving yourself as you are in the flesh- misgivings, shortcomings and sensual cravings. You can offer the same gift to others- not unconditional love but accepting love. You learned that your touch is healing magic, that friends run to you for sweet comfort and that the simple things in life can save a heart from breaking. You give your body and only then your soul and when you don you don’t know how to take it back. If you are forced to take your broken heart from another- you will feel empty and in return would try to fill up the space with sensual comfort. But yours is a loving nature and living without expressing it isn’t worth it at all for you true values are based on love.

Venus in Gemini: Your love is learned through mirroring others, if they were good mirrors in childhood then you would be the easy- going of them all, and if not then you will choose to go it alone.  In fact, you are easy going either way- just not happy. Your true need is that of a partner in crime, always someone to be there for you. That someone can be of any age, race or gender but they must treat you with acceptance.  Through them you will learn your gifts of fun and self-expression, until you are older. When you are older this need would turn into a passion and secret quest: to find your soulmate. At heart you are a romantic, and your soulmate is always right around the corner. To be happy you should not make promises you can’t keep. Don’t love those who ask that of you for that would be your defeat. Instead, live day by day, inventing your soulmate in your dreams and finding pieces of this ideal friend in your reality.

Venus in Cancer: Your love is endless; you have the true ability to lose yourself in the emotion of love. You only knew this type of love towards either in childhood or before you were born and either way it’s not a very secure knowing. Therefore, you feel secure in your emotions only when you give them to others- you can trust yourself but not others. Learning to receive caring and nurture from others is your early task. You may shy away from it in many ways, in private you wonder why love like yours cannot be found.  It can be of course. but only if you learn that you are strong. Stronger than others for you love is endless and can survive anything. In early adulthood you masked your emotions in order to get by perhaps by staying a child and not growing up, perhaps by growing up too fast. Your fear is all that is stopping you and once you let go- your ability to give and receive love is beyond compare.

Venus in Leo: Love is for those who are worth it, is what you have learned. One must win love before they have any entitlement for it. And so you made sure as a child that you are worth it, that you are the best- and only then were you allowed to enjoy others affection. For you love is always conditional and dangerous. Being loved unconditionally by someone who doesn’t recognize your worth, is the outmost of failures- you rather have no love at all. And so you develop your own fantasy:  where someone wins your heart. They must slay the dragon and kill the witch, and of course you are the prize.  When this does not happen, you are secretly sure this is your fault- that you are not good enough. If you only open your eyes you will see how everyone in your path is more than ready to slay the dragon- they just think they are not good enough for you.  Love is drama and song for you. Your greatest gift is turning the grayest of stories into a fairytale- by making anyone feel like they are the best.

Venus in Virgo: You don’t need much, just a little of that one very particular something, right? When you were young affection wasn’t given easily. Not that you weren’t loved but circumstances may have required various rules and limits on that affection. As you grew up you developed you system of right and wrong times to express love- probably as a reaction to you upbringing and sometimes in an opposite direction. If affection was cold, you may have no boundaries at all and if you were smothered then you set strict lines in your relationships.  As a result you allow yourself to express love through service or in a situation that has its own rules of the game: working relations, marriage and yes even affairs that have their own rules, don’t they?  For you to find true love and be happy you must respect your partner and the values they hold and you must know they need you.  You may fall into the trap of analyzing until all emotion is gone- for you must know it is the right time for you to open your heart and how will you know this if not through the mind?  But nevertheless you will keep to the rules, loyally giving more and more- even if no respect or love is received.  For you to be happy you must make your number one rule that of receiving it in return.

Venus in Libra: Love is about harmony. For you it is the space where balance is reached and conclusions stay in place. You are always in two places at once, trying to decide what road to choose next. Your heart loves everyone without reserve and yet you realize early on that this state of affairs isn’t ok with other people.  They ask you to choose; maybe it was your family maybe just life. You had to make a choice you could not make and so you never did.  You grew up, and made the easy choice- love what is beautiful for beautiful is always good. Beauty was the answer for the unbalance between mind, body and heart. Your hate of conflict meant you would seek where you belong- that group that would not require you to make difficult choices and that would be easily affectionate towards you.  As you grow up, this isn’t going to be enough. You will seek partners that challenge you, forcing you to develop a strong sense of individual identity. When that happens, you will find a partner in the true sense of the word. Someone who is amazing, who will join you according to your beliefs and goals in life, maybe an intellectual kind of love? For the best analogy for you kind is that ancient Greek idea where from physical love you learn to know the spiritual kind.

Venus in Scorpio: Your love isn’t open for all to see, only for the privileged.  When very young you were much protected, some sad truth was concealed from you. You learned that nothing is as it seems- including love. Being the way you are you promised yourself to protect others from the frightening emotions that you have, emotions born from the disclosure of the difficult truth, that same one that was concealed from you by your caregivers. Love in your heart wasn’t something you could express and so you let it grow within, becoming deeper and deeper- more complicated as the years went by.

By the time you grew up all you knew was that it wasn’t simple for you to become involved with people.  Nevertheless you wanted to protect and fight for them, your early romantic involvement may have been with someone weaker or in need of your help. That someone may not have been able to let you have your own weak spots and so it ended. You perceived this as betrayal and closed off your brave heart. You came into your power, not much later and learned that sex is your tool for expressing the depth, the void the need. And yet you wanted something pure and true, something that is based on deep trust that needs not words. Secret affaires are just a mockery of that, but it takes time to figure out.  I you do figure it out- yours if the kind of love where one is ready to die for the other.

Venus in Capricorn: Bad taste

It has been a surprising discovery but one I am very sure of. Venus in Capricorn results in some very bad aesthetic preferences. What is Venus in Capricorn? It is all the blond wigs, fake nails, skimpy clothes and slutty looks, overflowing with vulgarity at its best. And yet, this is a good placement in a chart that does promise success in artistic fields and in a career in general.


Maybe this explains why how biggest stars in music look a little vulgar. But joking aside, this is indeed a very interesting phenomenon. What is happening here? My theory is that Venus as the planet of values, is overworked by the workaholic Capricorn. The result is a striving for beauty that is completely superficial and exaggerated. The Capricorn wants a good result-he invests in what society considers beautiful but without looking to see the reasons behind it. This investment can look almost clown-like as a result. It is not that it is unattractive-in fact these individuals are naturally beautiful!


They make themselves ugly but they can not see it! Venus is clouded by the judgment of Capricorn and it can not always measure beauty. Unlike the Libra or Taurus: this placement results in a completely unbalanced view of beauty and proportion. In taking all that society at a given moment considers stylish, sexy, popular but without matching it to any value of substance. This is the definition of vulgarity. To make matters worse-the Capricorn is a sign of the past-the conventions long gone. So this is the girl that still thinks that the Pamela Anderson look is in style.
In man this placement results in them liking that look I just described-they like woman that look “cheap” (think the movie Pretty Woman). In women, a lack of taste is strong-and yet they manage to be sexy to most. For this placement doesn’t lack confidence in love and in their own attractiveness…Perhaps sadly so.


The real problem is in the fact that at heart, these individuals are very conservative as they appear. And so they attract the wrong kind of attention and relationship and even abuse. The men don’t understand why they end up with a woman that they don’t want to marry or be loyal in the traditional sense. The women don’t know why they are not taken seriously and why they attract the wrong people. Sexually speaking, this sign tends to adopt all the dirt and scary aspect of sex. But they don’t enjoy it-they only play the part. I don’t mean to say they are sexually intense like the Scorpio or even Aries. Rather they play a part they think others would like: But what the majority likes happens to be bad taste.

Famous Examples: Females take on the appearance of Venus whole males take the females to the aisle.
