This cosmic event is ushered in with the hour of Venus, day of Saturn (ruled by Capricorn). She turns retrograde at 4:53pm on the back swing with Mercury’s wings at 4:53pm EST. Mercury semi-sextile Venus (yup, makes sense!).
- Venus’ domain are the arts, love, sensuality, beauty, jewelry (pearls), mirrors, women, femininity, gardening, money and finances, tending to one’s growth, relationships, contracts (love & money, for example), copper (see color of Venus, above), birth & death, sweets.
- Venus was a very important (most?) planet for the Mayans. It told them when to go to war! Afterall, the opposite of Taurus, is Scorpio (co-ruled by Mars). And Libra, is Aries (ruled by Mars).
- Capricorn is ruled by Saturn. Some Capricorn keywords: Serious, ambitious, old, business, acquisition, steady, solid, appropriate, responsible, career minded, value, etc

When you think about how this cosmic event affects you, add “re” to every action you consider taking: reflect, rejuvenate, reignite, renew, recycle, repeat, redo, resolve, research, review, etc.
With the Rx (℞), you may also want to reconsider any prescriptions for physical, spiritual, financial, or mental health that relate to your love, relationships, money, beauty, etc during this Venus Rx.
You’ll also hop on the mental time machine — taking a trip back to get things finished up or sorted out, that were left behind as it relates to Capricorn themes. Expect to initiate, and possibly enjoy some closure.
Venus Rx Capricorn is applying to a non-perfected conjunction to Pluto. Venus Conjunct Pluto. Whoever obsessed just prior to and somewhat during November 21 — will begin to be obsessed about. Turn about, is fair play. Those with Venus and Pluto aspected, are more prone to experience this non-personal (mundane) transit more personally.
A romance right before the shadow period, may not last. But one that starts during it, could.
This Venus transit, may cause Love challenges for anyone with Saturn Cancer (Venus Opposition Saturn), Saturn Libra, or Saturn Aries (Venus Square Saturn).
Saturn Libra natives are really getting hit (2011 Saturn was in Libra).
This Venus transit, may cause Love bonuses for anyone who has Earth or Water planets or on your angles. You may trine or sextile this Venus Rx, harmoniously. You’ll be in for a ride, and hopefully some good loving, beauty redux, art, and money making merriment!
What to do during this Venus Rx transit
- Review your love life, and what’s important to you.
- Sometimes this transit accompanies pain for a love lost.
- Reach out to a lover, friends, and crushes (past, or present), or welcome being reached out to.
- Reconsider an old relationship but don’t start a brand new one, or it might be over once Venus goes direct.
- Alternatively, if a new relationship begins and doesn’t end — it will be likely enduring.
- Try not to make a decision about your relationship, or lover until AFTER the transit is over. This is a time of reflection, not decision making. You may change your mind later.
- Any exes coming back, may leave — just as quickly, if they are not of value. Fruitless relationships are going to go bye-bye. Also because Capricorn is a cardinal sign — this is about new beginnings & fresh starts.
- Write a list of qualities you want in a mate. What you’re willing to tolerate, and not tolerate.
- Write love letters to your exes, and put them to rest.
- Do you really value that friend, or foe? If not, kick ‘em to the curb.
- Avoid new beauty treatments, or changes in style. However, go over any beauty treatments that didn’t go well in the past. If any new beauty treatments are given — they could change your look for a long time to come.
- Say, “I love you” to someone. Especially someone you’ve been with for awhile, or who is older.
- Get your finances in order. Go back over your budget. Look at how to increase your wealth.
- Go to an art gallery. If you’re creative, artistic, or crafty — you’ve probably in a slump for awhile. This is your chance to get your mojo back.

Meditate with Music
Lady Gaga & The Muppets
Lady Gaga is an Aries Sun, Opposite Libra – who is co-ruled by Venus. Taurus is Gaga’s North node & True Lilith. It’s not surprising that this song is more on the martian side.
Frankie Avalon has a full Venus house — Venus aspects all the planets, in his chart. Venus is at the apex of a grande trine including Saturn & Mars! He has Venus conjunct Neptune!
