Are You Setting the Right #LoveGoals? Your Venus in Capricorn Horoscope Can Help!

What’s next for your love life? Sharpen the focus of your romantic goals as the planet of amour shifts into structured Capricorn from January 23 to February 16, 2024. Your Venus in Capricorn horoscope for the four-week transit. 

After weeks of living and loving out loud while Venus journeyed through Sagittarius, the Venus in Capricorn transit can make us all a lot more reserved. Wild PDA may be off the menu, but the “horny goat” can certainly spice things up behind closed doors!

Venus in Capricorn plays the long game in love

Capricorn is the zodiac’s master planner and while Venus visits this sign, we could all benefit from pulling back and taking a cooler, more dispassionate view of amour. There’s a time to be swept away, but this ain’t it. In the sign of the Sea Goat, Venus helps us get hooves on solid ground before sailing into the sunset. Long-range goals are suddenly more important than instant gratification.

When Venus visits Capricorn, we get serious about relationships

While Venus in Sagittarius likes to get down n’ dirty, Venus in Capricorn has longevity and stamina.

Look at relationships as the investments that they are—of your time, energy and heart. Are they paying dividends? Or do you need to cash out? Or, have you not been making enough deposits in the old, emotional bank account? Love “invoices” come due with Venus in Capricorn.

Coupled? Couples can align around your shared future, discussing your 2024 dreams by a cozy fireplace. With driven Capricorn ruling romance for the next few weeks, couples could achieve something memorable—and profitable—as a pair.

Single? Make a list of the qualities you’re looking for—and the deal breakers. No apologies, either, for being attracted to status now; Capricorn supports you if you’re looking to “date up.”

Talk to your partner about taking a step toward greater commitment. Or search for someone who is ready for meaningful co-creation, though, like now. Matters of the heart will get serious, but they don’t have to be as serious as a heart attack!

Playful, seductive Venus likes to keep the mood light

Defining nebulous “situationships” could be a fun game of “You show me your bucket list, I’ll show you mine!” Or, if you’re the type who doesn’t even think about bucket lists, well, maybe it’s time to write one.

But Capricorn keeps things down to earth

A Venus in Capricorn transit highlights this zodiac sign’s element: earth. Capricorn (along with Taurus and Virgo) are the stable, provider signs. So don’t be surprised if pillow talk gets downright practical.

While Venus’s transit through earth signs may not be the most adventurous spells, they are times when we can rest in the heart-opening security of knowing that there’s someone who wants to care for us, create long-lasting security with us, and maybe build a legacy together, like a family or another venture.

Romantic Venus enters Capricorn on January 23, helping you set new goals in the game of love. Relationships are investments.

Taurus (April 20-May 20) Venus in Capricorn horoscope

Visions of white-sand beaches and daily massages dancing through your head? Your ruling planet, Venus, slips into Capricorn and your ninth house of travel from January 23 until February 16. Winter vacation plans are blessed by the pleasure planet’s beams, so please…go! Pore over travel blogs until you find that dreamy location that’s ideal for a couple’s getaway or, if you’re single, where you have a high probability of restoring your own serenity. Can’t get away?

Gemini (May 21-June 20) Venus in Capricorn horoscope

Your powers of seduction are at peak intensity as Venus slinks into Capricorn and makes waves in your erotic eighth house from January 23 until February 16. Beam those magnetic charms selectively to avoid sending any romantic hopefuls crashing into the rocks. You don’t have to be a clairvoyant to know that a lackluster coffee date isn’t going to lead to a walk down the aisle.

Cancer (June 21-July 22) Venus in Capricorn horoscope

The arrival of the love planet, vixen Venus, in your partnership sector (from January 23 to February 16) could make you think a bit more seriously about your own relationship status. Is “commitment” the goal—or are you feeling antsy with your current amour? Or maybe there’s something you’d like to achieve together in 2024 that you haven’t yet articulated. There’s no right or wrong here, though it would be helpful if you and the object of your affections were on the same page about the future. Not sure? There’s one good way to find out. Slip into something very comfortable and broach the subject. Read more Cancer horoscopes.

Leo (July 23-August 22) Venus in Capricorn horoscope

Loving Venus enters Capricorn and your self-care sector from January 23 until February 16, inspiring you to turn more affection toward your sweet self, Leo. Be kind to your body instead of criticizing it. Taking care of your health has its benefits! For one thing, you may discover that you have more energy, not to mention, a revved-up libido. Whatever you do in the wellness department, make sure it’s more pleasurable than punishing. Even your cardio workouts should be fun and entertaining. Just watch out for that comfort food: It doesn’t HAVE to be your seasonal undoing! Read more Leo horoscopes.

Virgo (August 23-September 22) Venus in Capricorn horoscope

Your best adviser for these next few weeks is your own heart, Virgo. Romantic Venus grooves into Capricorn, energizing your fun-loving, flamboyant fifth house from January 23 until February 16. If you’re not feeling something, you won’t be able to participate. Of course, if you ARE catching a vibe, you’ll become the life of the party. Rally a few music- or theater-lovers for nights out. These next few weeks will simmer with romantic potential, so make sure you know what you’re after. Read more Virgo horoscopes.

Libra (September 23-October 22) Venus in Capricorn horoscope

There’s no telling what romantic dalliances you’ll get up to in your private love shack over the next few weeks as your ruling planet, sensual Venus, slinks through your domesticity zone. You’ll be in serious nesting mode January 23 through February 16, so don’t feel bad if you have to clip your own social butterfly wings. The undivided attention you pay your sweetie now is a worthwhile investment in your shared future. Single? You can be an online looker at home, but you WILL have to uproot yourself to actually meet anyone. Read more Libra horoscopes.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21) Venus in Capricorn horoscope

Your seductive powers will be in rare form starting January 23 as sultry Venus holds court in your flirtatious third house until February 16. Potential partners might form a queue for a chance to chat you up—which is where a discerning eye is needed. It’ll be easy to get carried away with the attention and believe you’re all that (well, okay, you ARE). But if someone is fixated with you and the feeling isn’t mutual, don’t give them false hope. Take the high road and avoid leading people on just to feed your ego. Read more Scorpio horoscopes.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) Venus in Capricorn horoscope

Slow down, kick off your heels and put your tired feet up, Archer! You deserve a break, and you’re about to get one starting January 23 as sensual Venus bids adieu to Sagittarius and slinks into Capricorn and your second house of earthly pleasures. The past few weeks might have gotten a little wild and out of control, and now you’re yearning for some sanity and security in the game of love. You’ve had your share of excitement, and if you can stay open to the “nice guys” or “good girls,” you might find what your body and soul are looking for, until February 16. Read more Sagittarius horoscopes.

Capricorn (December 22-January 19) Venus in Capricorn horoscope

There’s no reason to settle, Cap—not for love, work or lifestyle. Lucky charm Venus beams into your sign, turning you into a veritable love magnet! From January 23 through February 16, you’ll have the Midas touch, so focus on the people, projects or personal goals that are most important to you. And if there’s any unfinished romantic business you’ve been waiting to tie up or firm up, this is your big chance! Read more Capricorn horoscopes.

Aquarius (January 20-February 18) Venus in Capricorn horoscope

Feeling stuck? Sometimes the best way to get out of that rut is by doing things in a totally novel way—or doing radically different things altogether. Creative Venus glides into your quixotic twelfth house from January 23 until February 16, so mix it up! Pull clothes out of your closet that haven’t seen daylight in a while. If you’ve been secretly crushing on someone, take a bold leap and invite THEM out. At least you’ll find out if you’ve got a fighting chance. Read more Aquarius horoscopes.

Pisces (February 19-March 20) Venus in Capricorn horoscope

Ready to flex your superconnector skills? Affable Venus swings into Capricorn and fires up your collaborative eleventh house. If you’ve been working diligently but quietly on the sidelines (i.e., Pisces-style), you may be surprised to suddenly find yourself at the center of everything! Between January 23 and February 16, your hive will be abuzz with nonstop socializing that you won’t want to miss. But honor your true nature: When you feel overwhelmed or like the walls are closing in on you, politely excuse yourself and head for your restorative oasis of calm. Read more Pisces horoscopes.
