Venus enters Capricorn today Dec 25 at 4:26 pm AEDT where it will reside until Jan 18. Here’s my take on how it may express when in that sign
“Love endures all things”, says the Bible, and so does Venus in Capricorn. The planet of love in the sign of work produces committed and persevering lovers willing to put in the hard work necessary to create and maintain a loving relationship. Or, if the love bit proves too difficult, at least a relationship that works. Yes, that is not at all romantic, but in the view of these ambitious and pragmatic types, it’s eminently sensible to settle for a relationship, – preferably a marriage, that provides security, status, practical support and family approval, particularly if it helps to achieve other important goals like having children, career advancement and a life style to die for. In their value system marriage is a serious business that is not to be entered into, or terminated for relatively superficial considerations of physical attraction or sexual fire-works. Vocationally, their classical tastes, organizational skills, and keen sense of the quality and value of things fit them for careers in arts management and marketing, film production, antiques, and up-market fashion and real estate.
“For one human being to love another is perhaps the most difficult of all our tasks, the ultimate, the last test and proof, the work for which all other work is but preparation.”
“Deep down I’m pretty superficial” – Ava Gardner
“When you see what some girls marry, you realize how they must hate to work for a living” – Helen Rowland
“Man … discovers as he attains fulfillment or a state of grace, if you like, that there is something beyond the mere act of creating. He comes to realize that it is not necessary to paint or describe in words what he sees around him. He learns to let things be. He discovers that simply by looking the world in the face everything he comes in contact with is a bit of a masterpiece. Why improve on it? Why make a fuss about it? Enjoy what you see, that’s quite enough. The man who can do this is the accomplished artist. His creative merit lies in the ability to recognize and acknowledge that which has been created and which will elude forever his limited comprehension.”
