Only four hours after Mercury enters the sign of Aquarius (Fixed, Air) and two days after Mars enters Taurus (Fixed, Earth), Venus enters Capricorn (Cardinal, Earth). Three of the so-called “personal” planets changing signs so near together force a change of nuance to our natal way of acting, thinking and loving more or less all at once. Look to your natal placements to see how these new elements/modes harmonizes or clashes with your chart.
From frivolous and gaudy to self-possessed and distinct. Social propriety and etiquette, at least on a public level, mean a lot to this rather ambitious placement for Venus, less so perhaps in the bedroom, but that is a side that Venus Capricorn would prefer to keep private!
Venus’s contours are finely chiselled and with a distinct “no frills attached” attitude in this serious sign. Ambition is often part of the picture too.
