Naturally, you’ll want to put your best foot forward, and beautifying Venus is here to help. You might even work with a stylist to professionalize your image, or hire a branding specialist, publicist or career coach to refine any rough edges that you just haven’t had time to polish. Helpful men enter your world. Tap the great guys in your circle if you need a lift up the ladder of success. With business-minded Capricorn at the helm, you could hit on a brilliant idea for monetizing one of your innovative ideas. Kickstarter, anyone? Your friends and fans would happily donate a few bucks to see your realize your dreams.
In love, Venus in Capricorn brings a weightier vibe, putting you in long-term-planning mode. Coupled Aries, this is the week to co-create a vision for 2013 with your mate and map out a few epic goals you want to accomplish together. Whether you’re renovating the house, adding a baby to the brood, organizing funds for your kids’ college tuitions or hiking the Incan Trail for your anniversary, it’s time to discuss something bigger than just “What are we making for dinner tonight, dear?” As your ambitious sign well knows, if you dream it (and plan it), you can do it.
Single Aries will crave the companionship of someone older or a bit more established. You’re a power player yourself, and you need someone equally driven on your arm. Love with all the traditional trimmings is what Venus in Capricorn brings. You might have to tamp down some of those passionate flames and allow yourself to be courted in the old-school way for the next few weeks. Patience, Ram; good things come to those who wait when Venus is in Capricorn.
On Friday the 11th, the new moon in Capricorn brings fresh openings for your career. This is the beginning of a six-month cycle toward success, which culminates with the full moon in Cap on June 23. While you’ll feel fired up with ambition, don’t just play games you know you can win. Challenge yourself to move into a bigger league. Yes, your ego can take a temporary hit from being the little fish in the ginormous new pond, but your skills will grow exponentially when you’re working alongside masters. Rather than work the 9-to-5 grind, you might begin developing a product that can make you money in your sleep (need we say “Kickstarter” again?). Or, begin angling for a raise and promotion. What will it take to climb that ladder a few rungs? This new moon encourages you to get the training or education you need to pull yourself on up.
Leg-exercising sports like soccer, kickboxing and skiing can help you get in great shape this winter. You might sign up for an indoor league, join a gym or buy that season pass to the slopes this week, too!
