Venus’s visit through steady Capricorn will end on Wednesday March 5th, as the planet of love makes its transit to friend-focused Aquarius. When Venus occupied the constellation of Earth Capricorn, our love style focused on materialism and success. Not to say that Capricorn prefers superficiality, rather that Capricorn’s standards in a mate must reflect the high standards they establish for themselves. Aquarius, the Water Bearer, takes the “come as you are” stance, thanks to the Air sign’s unconventional romantic attractions. Capricorn needs a sound, consistent partner while Aquarius revels in shocks & surprises. The experimental nature of Aquarius clashes violently with conservative Capricorn—so we can expect to see this peculiarity affect our partnerships.
When Venus is in Aquarius, there is a very relieving acceptance of what it is we want in a relationship, and not necessarily what society believes is best for us romantically. Aquarians are nontraditional, eclectic, imaginative & highly spiritual beings, unafraid to express who they truly are and what they desire in matters of the heart. As unique and individualistic as they are, Aquarians also see value in “the whole picture.” We can be certain that this collective outlook will manifest itself as we search for true friendship to underscore the current romantic partnerships in our lives. Of all the signs, it is incredibly easy for Aquarius to love, but ridiculously difficult to fall in love. This is primarily because Aquarians rely on mental energy to connect with others, as opposed to, say, Sagittarius who relies on physical interaction. You’ll need to tap into the mind of an Aquarius before they hand their heart over on a platter. Conversely, Venus in Aquarius will force all of us to connect mentally with our partners: the abstract bond created (or strengthened) during this period will blossom into something much more beautiful. I’d also like to assume that word-play becomes a vocal point between ourselves & our partner(s): intellectual stimulation emerges as ultimately important.
In addition to being an Air sign, Aquarians also belong to the Fixed family. With Venus in the Fixed group, there’s a strong need to exert a great deal of autonomy in our partnerships: this trait manifests itself in our personal relationships until Venus moves into Pisces. For those with their Sun and/or Venus sign already in Aquarius, this transit makes you feel “right at home.” The romantic energy matches how you normally function in partnerships on a daily basis. For those with their Sun and/or Venus sign in the Earth/Water families, the energy of the Water Bearer can be a bit too individualistic and too unpredictable. Fixed signs work to maintain and hold steadfast. Venus in Fixed Aquarius brings inflexibility regarding our love values: once the heart is made up, it’s difficult (although not impossible) for us to shift gears. Subsequently, Venus in Aquarius indicates an unlikeliness of blending with our love partners as “one.” The Aquarian places heavy emphasis on “friends first” with a lover: it’s much easier for Aquarius to fall for friends or make the transition from friend to lover more easily.
Positively, once Aquarius has fallen in love, they are pleasantly shocking ! These rebellious, intellectual and detached lovers seek progressive mates who love freely and openly with no reservations. The conservative aura that Venus in Capricorn placed in our lives these past few months will definitely evolve into emotionally demonstrative freedom. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself testing the boundaries of the status quo in defense of your relationship. Nontraditional partnerships are favored under Venus in Aquarius. This Venus movement could also signal we seek lovers who go against our personal status quo (i.e. “he’s not my type” or ” my family may not agree with this relationship”). During this period, we may make major decisions like: move in & cohabitate with lovers or find ourselves blending families with mates who already have children. Perhaps we may even get news of an unexpected pregnancy, before talks of marriage is in the works. Naturally, Venus in Capricorn would cringe at any of the aforementioned prospects, but Venus in Aquarius prefers to do things her own way.
