This Venus phase could awaken the desire to totally revamp your image or radically change your hairstyle (maybe it’s time to grow out those bangs after all). Be careful, though: With chi-chi Capricorn in the mix, your whims could also get quite spendy. Working with a professional stylist, even for a single session, can help you narrow down options to cuts, fabrics and colors that work best on you so you don’t waste another penny on clothes that look better on the hanger than they do on your bod.
Romantically, you’re bringing the heat, and it’s your turn to take the lead in affairs of the heart. Venus in Capricorn will draw you to people of status, so keep your selection criteria a bit more exclusive. Power-couple fantasies are dancing through your head, and your arm candy du jour has got to impress. It’s not that you need a sugar daddy or mama…you just want someone who can hold his or her own with you. There could even be a notable age difference between you and your January crush.
If you’re in a relationship, you’ll love dressing up and painting the sleepy winter scene as crimson as a tube of MAC Russian Red. Just be careful not to get SO hung up on appearances that you forget to see the real gold in people. No one needs to remind you that it’s what’s inside that truly counts (not that a well-groomed exterior isn’t a must for your fussy sign). And don’t get down on your sweetie for the occasional stylistic misstep. White socks with black shoes WERE made popular by Virgo Michael Jackson, after all. And even if you’d rather die than see this look revived by the love of your life, it’s a helluva lot easier to teach a person how to dress than to change his inner character.
You’ll be craving the energy of the bright lights and the big city all week, but if the weather forecast shows only clouds, explore the possibility of a four-day getaway to a warm location before the month…or week…ends. Hook yourself up at home with a full-spectrum lamp to blast away the SAD-ness, and start dosing on vitamin D.
On Friday the 11th, a new moon in Capricorn amplifies Venus’ loving vibes. A sizzling new romantic interest could appear on the scene, or you could enjoy the revival of amour (at last!) with the one you love. Talks could turn to engagement rings, even babies. This is a fertile new moon for you, Virgo, and a pregnancy may be in the cards, or you could give birth to a creative brainchild.
Your sunny optimism and dramatic flair will draw people to you like a moth to a flame. All that attention can get overwhelming for your modest sign, but don’t back away. This new moon is igniting an important six-month fame cycle, which is helping you make a name for yourself. By June 23—the date of the corresponding full moon in Capricorn—you could see your name in lights or have an important new title printed on your business cards. Start working it, STAT!
