Venus is the feminine planet, and the fourth house (Capricorn for you) governs women. The ladies in your life will be the star players for the next few weeks. Nurture your connections with them, whether you’re supporting each other through trying emotional periods or forming strategic alliances for professional purposes. Having a crew of powerful femmes in your corner is the quickest way to advance now. Just make sure you’re contributing in kind to keep the scorecard even. Gratitude alone won’t do the trick. You might have to volunteer a few hours of time to repay a she-mentor’s kindness. Little gifts never hurt, either.
Venus in Capricorn could prompt you to play amateur interior decorator—although with your aesthetic gifts, there will be nothing rudimentary about it. Whether you’re refreshing paint colors, slipcovering your seating with new fabric or minimizing your decor scheme, don’t just go for off-the-shelf options. Peruse the design blogs, play with DIY ideas, mix salvaged pieces with new ones, put a signature imprint on your space. In the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson, “Love of beauty is taste. The creation of beauty is art.” For soulful extra-credit points, pick up “Feng Shui Your Life: Second Edition,” by Jayme Barrett for ideas on how to get the chi flowing in your home and, by extension, your life.
In affairs of the heart, romantic Venus’ tour of Capricorn finds in a more serious state than you’ve been in for a while. Not only is your sensitivity heightened (beware those mood swings!) but you’re practically demanding certainty about the future. The nice guy or girl you cast aside in December could steal your heart again now. Don’t rule out the divorced dad with the heart of gold or the affable cutie who is sure to get the parental stamp of approval; those family-friendly types might just have the qualities you’re looking for, Libra.
On Friday the 11th, a new moon in Capricorn fuels the roaring home fires of Venus. If you’re in the market for a move, you could be running to the realtor’s office or obsessively perusing the classifieds for listings that appeal. New moons are the starting point of six-month cycles, so it might take you between now and June 23 (the day of the corresponding FULL moon in Capricorn) to get fully settled in. All the same, this weekend would be a great time to begin any such explorations. If you’re happily ensconced in your home, you might make some bigger changes, such as welcoming a roommate, turning the spare bedroom into a music studio or home office, and possibly even preparing for a baby. This is the new moon of motherhood, and some Libras could get serious about a pregnancy, while others can begin strengthening or healing their bonds with their mom, daughter, sister or another important lady.
