Capricorn Monthly Love Horoscope

Your September Capricorn Love Horoscope

The planet of love will remain in this sizzling sector of your chart until October 8. Your singular focus: to go as deep as you can with your love connection. 
Has love been intense this summer, and not always in a good way? It’s not your fault, Capricorn. Even since Venus went retrograde on July 22, you may have had a difficult time settling into a connected, intimate groove. This challenging cycle for love, which happens every 18 months, occurred with Venus in Leo and your erotic, emotional eighth house. 
That was especially hard for your stoic sign, as issues of jealousy, possessiveness and moodiness could have spilled over onto everything. Coupled Capricorns may have found themselves fighting about sex and money, or obsessing over an ex since Venus retrograde can bring back people from your personal history. Maybe you even had an old flame encounter that triggered memories of a past betrayal. 
During this six-week period, trust issues could have been set off by a hairline infraction, like a momentary glance that seemed unloving. Or maybe you were just generally at odds with your intimate partner, and wondering, quite seriously, if you could ever make it work. 
Good news, Goat: Once Venus turns direct (forward) on September 3, you should start to regain your swagger, Capricorn. Bottled-up feelings will come out with much more grace and a lot less blame. If you’ve been sexually out of sync, prepare to make up for lost time!
Meantime, the other love planet Mars is swashbuckling through Libra and your tenth house of status and ambition. You’ll be attracted to successful, focused people and eager to surround yourself with folks who motivate you and help you ascend. 
If you’re single, don’t be afraid to set your sights high. Sparks could fly with a colleague or someone you meet at a professional event. If you’re clear on what you want in a partner and a relationship, don’t settle for less than 90 percent of that. Save yourself precious time (and much frustration) by screening out candidates who aren’t on your level after the first or second date. Thank you, next!
Attached? You’re in “power couple” mode, so dress up and hit the VIP scene. You can inspire others to be THEIR best selves and believe in their ability to create a loving, supportive bond. Make sure there’s a healthy give-and-take, and if there isn’t, discuss how you can rebalance the scales. This is your future-oriented zone, so it makes sense that you’re wondering about next steps, whether officializing your status or perhaps going into business together. Start the conversation, but don’t create unnecessary pressure to figure out everything right away.
