14 Dec A Romantic Rebirth | Venus Retrograde In Capricorn
Wow! Get ready to start 2022 with a bang!
You are entering a powerful cosmic phase that is about to transform your love life tremendously.
In fact, once this astrological period is over, it’s likely that your feelings toward love, along with your relationships, will be completely different than what they are now.
So much so that you might not even recognize them.
This is because on December 19th, Venus, the planet of love and affection, will be going retrograde.
But that’s not all!
During the retrograde window, Venus is destined to have three fated encounters with Pluto, which will be triggering deep issues around control, trust, accountability, and ultimately helping to transform your love life into something that fulfills you on a soul level.
All of this planetary commotion is sure to stir up a lot of emotions.
And if you flow with the changes happening inside your heart right now, it will bring a new possibility in love that could awaken more pleasure for you than you ever thought possible.
Keep in mind though, there will be plenty of pitfalls you’ll want to avoid to ensure that this transit will bring about a romantic rebirth and not total destruction.
So let’s lay out all the details and help you get ready for what’s to come over the next few weeks and months.
Hitting The Rewind Button On Your Heart
Retrogrades have a reputation for causing delays, mishaps, and making you think twice about things.
You’re probably familiar with Mercury retrograde, which happens 3 to 4 times a year. Venus retrograde, however, is much more rare – happening only once every 18 months.
And while Mercury retrograde deals with communication or technological issues, Venus retrograde is all about reevaluating matters of the heart.
Starting December 19th, you will be entering a period of review where the quality of love, relationships, and pleasure in your life will be tested.
If these areas of your life do not reflect your deepest values, then you will become aware of what needs to change so that they do.
If you’re single, the Venus Retrograde in Capricorn will help you deal with any practical concerns that might be standing in the way of love. You’ll also start to realize what qualities you need in a partner to feel secure and open your heart to commitment.
Keep in mind that any relationship starting while Venus is in Capricorn will carry the frequency of maturity, commitment, dignity and good judgment. However, a brand new relationship that begins during the retrograde, between December 19th and January 29th, might not be a permanent one.
Look for new relationships starting in February. And in the meantime, don’t be surprised if you reconnect with an old flame.
If a past lover does make an appearance, you will likely be reevaluating the pragmatic aspects of your connection, or discussing serious topics like commitment and long term goals together.
If you already are in a relationship, the Venus Retrograde could bring important negotiations to the table. An increased desire for security and responsibility could have you discussing what you need to feel confident growing your future together.
If things have been a bit more turbulent in your love life, the Venus retrograde will help you sort through confusion or mixed signals. You’ll be able to get to the bottom line and decide whether or not you’re willing to stick it out for the long haul.
Venus will still be in Capricorn during Valentine’s day next year, so if your relationship goes through a deepening over the holidays, you might decide to move in together or even get engaged sometime in February!
Remember that Venus takes pleasure in luxury as well as love. This means that during the retrograde in ambitious Capricorn, you can be sure that money will also be on your mind.
Finding A Recipe For Success
Ever since Venus entered Capricorn on November 5th, you’ve probably been more focused on your career, saving money for the future, and figuring out ways to become more financially secure.
You may have invested in an item that enhances your status or helps your career, such as designer glasses, business clothes, or a new computer. You also may be taking responsible action for your future by talking with a financial planner or business coach.
During the Venus Retrograde you can still do all these things, especially if you’ve been meaning to for a while but putting it off. However, all Venus Retrogrades come with the same warning:
Do not make drastic changes to your appearance during this time.
Venus rules over beauty and physical appearances, so striking changes to the way you look could result in retrograde regret.
This applies to trying a daring new hairstyle or hair color, a new style of clothing, getting permanent makeup, beauty procedures, or plastic surgery.
Right now, your energy is best focused on filling missing pieces in your wardrobe and buying practical items that help you work easier and make a good impression on others.
On a deeper level, the Venus Retrograde in Capricorn will help you become aware of changes you need to make that will set you up for success for many years to come.
Your focus will be on long term achievements and success throughout January. So take advantage of this energy by figuring out ways that you can improve your prospects for the future. Plan, strategize, and get down to business, because what you do now will pay off big down the road.
Of course, with Pluto in the mix this retrograde, there will be some extra potent energy, possibly even some kind of crisis, propelling the changes you make now.
Soul Deep Transformation
Have you been craving more intensity in your love life lately? Or maybe you’ve been caught up in an unhealthy relationship dynamic and are ready for things to change.
Whatever your situation may be, one thing is for certain…
Pluto will be bringing things to a head.
Did anything significant happen in your professional or personal life around December 11th?
This was the date of the first Venus-Pluto conjunction, so whatever happened a few days ago is going to continue to unfold on a deeper level until March 5th 2022.
And as a result your life is going to change completely.
Since Venus aligned with Pluto right before it’s set to go retrograde, it’s going to retrace its steps and meet with Pluto two more times before parting ways!
This means that Pluto will be working overtime to help you get in touch with your deepest values, increase your financial success, and breathe a breath of fresh air into your love life.
However, there are some real dangers to look out for with this transit.
If you are involved in an unhealthy relationship, feelings of obsession, possessiveness, jealousy, and control issues could become so intense that it could push you or someone else over the edge.
And even if your relationships with others are generally healthy, this Pluto transit could bring a hidden issue to a crisis point so you can address it immediately.
Subconscious attitudes around love and self-worth could crop up during the retrograde, making it a powerful time to heal, practice forgiveness, and tend to your deepest needs for security, belonging and affection.
It’s true that Pluto can bring up some ugly feelings.
But ultimately, it wants to help you process and purge what no longer belongs in your life so you can experience a complete renewal.
The positive results of Pluto’s influence during the retrograde could be deeper intimacy, freedom from unhealthy power dynamics, more wealth, and an ability to feel pleasure in a way that connects you to your soul.
There will be a lot of changes to the financial and romantic aspects of your life through March 5th, and I’m excited to see what transforms for you.
Remember to be courageous, listen to your conscience, and follow it’s quiet, inner voice as you navigate this Venus Retrograde.
Stay true to yourself and you will prosper!
