VENUS IN CAPRICORN:
Venus moved into Capricorn on Sunday, February 24th and enters the friends’ sign of Saturn. Capricorn is a complex sign and is the natural 10th sign of the zodiac and connected to business and the natural need of Saturn for security. Capricorns often have great organizing power, desires success, fame and is a bit of reclusive energy.
In general, Venus in Capricorn showers material pleasure on its friend Saturn. If you have this position in your natal chart (like I do), it can create loyal and mature love, conventional marriage and supports the underdog and the poor. When it is afflicted, it may create sexual coldness, fascination with death, reproductive problems or emotional flatness.
The combination of Venus being in Saturn’s sign creates stability in relationships, strong technical abilities in business, support oils, iron, steel and antiques and older people. I often think the Venus/Saturn connection is one of creating beautiful infrastructure to support our aesthetic sense and I think of the murals and mosaics that were engineered into the new highway walls in Phoenix that add beauty to the concrete commute.
On a physical level, this transit supports attention to the body, to having the discipline to start that diet and supports activity like massage, which combines the sensuous nature of Venus with the solid grounding of the needs of the body. This is a good month to find a good massage therapist, take an exercise class that sculpts your body or to shop for new clothes. Building a beautiful new business, website or publishing a book seems like a perfect activity this month for this transit as Venus there will be support from superiors and authorities.
Venus in Capricorn should be quite successful with adjusting fortunes coming from the influence of Ketu that could lead to conceptual breakthroughs in the areas of work and business, especially religion, ethics and higher education. Relationships with father, bosses and superiors could also take a turn for the better and foreign travel could be enlightening with innovative learning opportunities.
There could also be unique forms of communication and self-expression that bring fortune. This could help one with the ability to accumulate merit in life, and with patience on the Cazimi path, the power to achieve the fruits of life through the use of one’s own efforts. This is in contrast to the upcoming move into Aquarius March 21-April 15th
Venus conjunct Ketu in Capricorn – February 24-26, 2019
When Venus is afflicted in Capricorn , it can create delays or setbacks in relationships, love for lost causes, unconventional relationships, reproductive complications, sexual imbalances and dysfunctional partners. If you have this in your natal chart or have Venus conjunct Ketu or Mars in your natal chart or are running a Venus/Rahu or Venus/Ketu or Venus/Mars period or some combination like that you might feel this transit more intensely.
If you were born with this combination, it can create unresolved past life relationships that are unhappy or painful. You may attract spiritual or emotional partners with a lot of baggage and you may change partners frequently or may reject partners for fear of being rejected yourself.
If you are male, you may choose women are unconventional and that society may reject from another class, race or religion or gender orientation-causing problems. In any case if you have this signature in your natal chart it may bring up unorthodox and complicated relationships and with Mars in Aquarius often, there may be a lot of passion or quarrels. If you are a revolving door relationship person, use this month to go deeper and hang in there instead of rejecting.
Venus will transit within 3 degrees of Ketu the South node, the fiery and spiritual monkish planet, Feb. 24-26t. . If you were born with this combination, it can create unresolved past life relationships that are unhappy or painful. You may attract spiritual or emotional partners with a lot of baggage and you may change partners frequently or may reject partners for fear of being rejected yourself.
For Libra rising, the Ketu transit conjunct Venus will upset family life and create difficulties with mother or create unexpected problems with vehicles or problems in the home as a 4th house transit of the chart lord. For Taurus rising, it will bring up unexpected problems with 9th house matters like trips to foreign countries, problems with one’s father, Guru, or religious leaders. Those running a Venus mahadasha will feel it more strongly.
