Venus in Capricorn Explained

If Venus was in Capricorn when you were born, this your astrological love sign. This is the aspect of your astrology chart that will determine your style in love and romance. Certainly, your sun and moon signs will play a role as well, but if you've always thought they weren't a true representation of your inner Casanova, the answer most likely lies in your Venus sign. To learn more about this aspect, do continue reading below!

Appearance is Everything

Venus in Capricorn will be very preoccupied with they way others perceive him. And no, I'm not talking about the way they dress or comb their hair. They will be very concerned with the image they project and they will strive to maintain that elusive, cool and calculated air they seem to have developed whilst still in the womb! Capricorn is not a fast-moving sign, because impulsiveness can lead to disaster, mistakes and general upset -- and these folks need a calm environment in which they can stay abreast of anything and everything important. Therefore, when they first meet someone they find attractive, they will probably go to great lengths to conceal their thoughts. And they will likely continue to do so until they are sure pursuing the attraction is a practical endeavor. Therefore, it could take you a very long time before you even realize Capricorn has his or her sights set on you. For this reason, only the patient and determined (qualities Capricorn will admire, by the way!) need apply for the role of significant other. And before you ask about those just seeking a fling.... Capricorn rarely entertains such ideas, so you fling seekers may want to set your sights on other signs like Aries or Gemini!

Slow and Steady Wins the Race

While it might seem like Capricorn is too slow-moving to accomplishing anything in love, that's not the case. Once Capricorn is sure of you, he will pursue you. And he will probably do it the old fashioned way. If it seems like he's moving so slowly that you'll never reach the alter, bear in mind that his goals are much, much bigger than that and he wants to have his entire life in order first. He works long hours because he wants to be totally financially secure before getting married and having kids -- which is what most of them do actually want. This is not a guy who's going to take you through a Vegas Drive-Thru Chapel and pop the question. This is the guy whose going to build you a castle first, and then, when he's sure he's successful enough to treat you like a queen, all the pieces will fall into place at once. It could be a long, frustrating wait for some women (ie, Gemini, Aries, Scorpio, Leo) but it's well worth the wait if you can hang in there, because few men are more loyal, supporting and loving than a Capricorn man.

Finding the Chinks in the Armor

Venus in Capricorn may seem steely and cold, but there are chinks in that armor if you look for them. They are not particularly skilled at expressing their emotions, but that doesn't mean they haven't got any! These folks are very loving and caring people, but they hide it better than any other sign. If you are tender with a Capricorn it will probably intimidate them at first, because this is one area where logic and practicality will not serve a purpose. Therefore, you should start to express this tenderness in small increments and give your Capricorn a chance to absorb it. Watch their responses carefully, backing off or stepping things up in accordance with their reaction. Do not come on too strong, or you run the risk of watching them close down entirely. Patience is key, and if you bring loads of it to the table, you will be heavily rewarded.
