The eighth house rules seduction, and with Venus in this position, you’ll seek greater intensity in affairs of the heart. Spice things up in the bedroom, but don’t stop there. You also require a meeting of the minds and hearts, a tall order for any one person to fill but keep your standards high. Rather than having a rotating cast of suitors, while Venus is in Capricorn you’ll want to pare down to just one captivating soul. Is it possible that you already know the perfect candidate for this position? You may have shied away from getting involved with this person because the connection seemed too heavy or serious. Or, you could be avoiding him or her because of a past stumbling block. Timing is everything, Gemini. With Venus in Capricorn, you’ll be ready to embrace a weightier bond, one that has the ability to stand the test of time.
If you’re already in a relationship, you may grapple with bouts of jealousy and possessiveness for the next few weeks. The solution to these fits of envy, however, is counterintuitive. When the green-eyed monster rears up, don’t chase wildly after the object of your affections (yes, Gemini, it IS possible to scare people away by sending one too many text messages). Instead, pull back. Spending more time with “me, myself, and I” will give the relationship proper breathing room. Use that alone time to do personal-transformation work like meditation, working with a life coach or taking a self-improvement seminar. Or, get in touch with your inner minx. Slip on the boa, bikini and ostrich-feather mules and find your alter ego in a burlesque workshop; take salsa lessons (a good way to sharpen unspoken communication skills), discover your “erotic creature” with an S Factor lesson or DVD.
Some Geminis will even opt to take a break from the dating scene altogether, choosing instead to re-center in themselves and dive obsessively into a creative project. With Venus in Capricorn until January 31, you could write a hit song, create a sculpture worthy of an Art Basel exhibition, or discover another incredible outlet for your imagination that will one day also put money in your pocket.
On Friday the 11th, a new moon in Capricorn energizes the very same part of your chart. You’ll get another cosmic signal to bring sexy back in a soulful way. This could be the day where you lock eyes with The One (who might, incidentally, be the reflection staring back at you in the mirror) or decide to officialize a relationship with an engagement ring or co-signed document.
This new moon ramps up your financial savvy, turning your attention to passive income streams, royalties, inheritances, commissions, and money made from sales. Between now and the corresponding full moon on June 23, you could make a lump sum of cash through an outlet other than the 9-to-5 route. You might even be inspired to learn about real estate sales—definitely worth exploring. Do you need investment capital to get a project off the ground? This new moon prompts you to write your business plan, put together a demo or proposal, and perhaps find an agent who can connect you to funding. Shared resources become a hot topic of conversation. If you’re in a relationship, begin exploring new ways of pooling your earnings and growing your savings so that you both can benefit doubly by June 23.
