A Relationship ‘Aha!’ Moment
Venus is retrograde this month, something that happens about every year and a half. This time her backwards journey is happening in Capricorn and today she conjuncts the Sun. In past posts I’ve called this “Relationship Epiphany Day” but now I’m dubbing it “Relationship Clarity Day.” Relationship Clarity Day is a day of insight and clarity about your relationship. If your relationship has been undergoing reexamination during this retrograde period (December 21, 2013 to January 31, 2014), then today negotiations are at hand, and the stakes are high. The results can be very good: a restoration, a renewal, even a rejuvenation of the love that was once there—if you follow Venus’ instructions.
Venus in Capricorn—what are her desires?
Venus in Capricorn thrives from shared goals. When two partners are working together towards a long-term end, it’s like glue for their relationship.
Venus in Capricorn appreciates structure. She likes to know what the rules are and to know that both partners are following them. This allows her to relax and soften into the relationship.
Venus in Capricorn desires a love-bond between two autonomous entities. Does that sound cold? It might, because Capricorn (Cardinal Earth) is pragmatic to a fault. But this Venus gets turned on by mutual respect.
Venus in Capricorn wants wealth, status, bling and power. She’s got a stamp on her forehead that says, “Expensive, but worth it.” But underneath all this she really wants what Venus always wants: pure, passionate desire, a true bond and romantic attention. She wants to be valued. After all, to the Greeks, Venus Aphrodite was known as the Golden Goddess. Naturally, she wants gold and she wants to be golden. More about that in an upcoming post.
How To Handle It
While Venus is in Capricorn you might well ask yourself, “where do you truly place value in the relationship? What is really important?” Enter into negotiations about the rules of the relationship. Plan ahead—what can you accomplish together? And more than this—plan to work on the relationship itself, and let your partner know that they are worth their weight in gold.
Worked for, love IS gold. Venus in Capricorn teaches that love is work and that love, when worked for, is more valuable than love that came without effort.
