Venus in Capricorn

Venus, the planet of emotional and material security, moves into hard-working Capricorn today (January 8 - February 1). In Capricorn, Venus wants to be seen and loved for her work and contribution.

Knowing this, you may be harder on yourself than usual. You may struggle with feelings of doubt and despondency if you’re not getting the feedback or the “likes” you desire. There is a tendency to look outside ourselves for affirmation of worth and to do things that we think will invite the appreciation of others.

“You are valuable because you exist. Not because of what you do or what you have done, but simply because you are.” — Max Lucado

Upon entry Venus in Capricorn will be answering to Mercury, watch for anxiety-triggering thoughts around security (financial, physical and emotional).
