Naturally, you need to ally with someone you consider an equal. But this person won’t come wrapped in the exact same packaging as you; in fact, while Venus is in Capricorn, the law of “opposites attract” is in full force. Open your mind to someone who breaks from type, and by all means let your friends fix you up. Nothing ventured, nothing gained…will it kill you to meet for coffee, Cancer? No, so stop grumbling, put on some lipstick, and go. It’s never a waste of time to funnel energy into the pursuit of a dream, even if the universe doesn’t deliver your ideal lover or songwriting soul mate on the first try.
And what about that relationship that’s building ever so slowly? This week, chemistry that’s been bubbling in the lab finally could form into a compound called “we.” No, you won’t find that one in the periodic table, but it will definitely be made up of two stable elements. Venus in Capricorn doesn’t have time for love that’s less than serious, so relationships spawned (or solidified) over the next few weeks will need to be made official. Don’t waste your time on any long shots now, Cancer. If you’ve given someone a fair chance and he or she is not stepping up, you owe it to yourself to move on…or at least put that person on the back burner and go explore other options.
If you’re in a relationship, give your together time greater priority. As busy as life can be, you may have forgotten the fine art of romance. Circle at least one date night each week to give your union the care and feeding it requires to sustain itself.
On the job front, Venus in Capricorn brings you harmony in business dealings. A legal matter may be settled with greater ease than expected over the next few weeks. Contract negotiations should go swimmingly, but enlist a lawyer nonetheless. Venus can bring out the people-pleaser in you, and you don’t want to sell yourself short at the bargaining table just because you’re enjoying the good vibes with your future ally. That’s a recipe for resentment. A third party can ensure that you don’t make too many concessions.
You might revamp your look now, opting for a flirtier style. Load up on the spa treatments, and add more color to your wardrobe and makeup scheme. Taking great care of yourself keeps you in balance, especially since this week will be more social than your alone-time-loving sign is accustomed to.
On Friday the 11th, a new moon in Capricorn further energizes your seventh house, adding fuel to Venus’ fire. This could be the day where you spot your future husband across the room, decide to turn a casual dating scenario into a bona fide relationship, or begin a trial cohabitation agreement to see how you like living with the object of your affections. New moons plant seeds that are harvested six months later; in this instance, you’re looking at June 23 for the date of the Capricorn full moon. This half-year phase provides the breathing room your sign needs to test the waters before committing with finality. Just do try to advance things along a bit instead of remaining at a standstill. If a business offer or contract comes your way, try to negotiate a six-month trial period instead of signing your life away before you’re 100 percent sure about what you’re getting yourself into.
Coupled Cancers, you will love the co-creation opportunities this new moon brings for you and your mate. How can you join forces for a tag-team effort? Whether you’re planning a trip or a baby, renovating the house, starting a nonprofit or co-hosting a party, taking on a bigger “project” together will help seal your bond.
