The year begins with the planet of love and beauty (Venus) in your sign -- but going retrograde. This means you're in a more nostalgic and reflective zone around relationships. Old lovers may reappear if there's any unfinished business. Or you may just be thinking about your past patterns and cycles in love relationships. Either way, it's a time of powerful introspection and reflection. If you're in a committed relationship, you may be craving a pause if not a serious time-out. It's not a time for big decisions or rushing forward with partners. If you've been fighting over money with your beloved, you may want to put any big financial planning talks on hold until February. The upside to this transit in January is that your appreciation for the sweetness and beauty in your relationships is enhanced.
Venus will come out of retrograde in February, allowing you to feel like you're finally moving forward with relationships. You can now apply all that you've learned during the Venus retrograde phase for the rest of the year. It's another year of breaking negative or addictive cycles in love. You've been on both sides of the power spectrum, Capricorn, and you're learning that you would most thrive in a coupling of equals. Of course, this is easier said than done, but you're getting closer than ever to attracting a harmonious match -- or reworking the power dynamics in your current commitment.
Jupiter will move into your zone of sexuality and intimacy this summer, bringing you plenty of opportunities to get passionate and deep with your beloved. Yes, this may require exploring some of the skeletons in your own psychic closet along the way, but it's worth the sexy rewards. If you're willing to face some of your darkest fears and insecurities this year, the level of connection you'll feel with your beloved will be off the charts!
