8. Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Even you’ve grown tired of the brooding heaviness of your environment, which is no small feat for the shadow-loving scorpion. While you normally never shy away from the intense or uncomfortable, you’re ready to let some light into your personal space, as well as the relationships you’ve come to cherish. As Venus touches down on Taurus on the 14th, take advantage of those rosy vibes to reach out to loved ones and express yourself with the confidence of knowing that vulnerability is a strength, and not the show of weakness you once feared.
9. Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
You approach your relationships in the same manner you approach life at large: with an open heart and eye for adventure. You believe that love should liberate, rather than restrain one, and are quick to give overbearing partners the side-eye (if not the boot). This month and especially on the 14th, leave a little room for surprise, as you may find yourself on the receiving end of an unexpectedly amazing one. An underestimated partner could very well out-maneuver the astrological hunter this season.
10. Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
If your love life feels less than stellar these days, take heart Capricorn: Venus, who loves to tweak the nose of your ruler Saturn, arrives on the 14th to shake off the dust and cast old affections in a dazzling new light. Never one to rush into an affair, you’re equally prone to staying put in relationships out of a sense of duty, rather than enthusiastic commitment. Remember, Venus doesn’t just represent love, beauty, and material success, but the very act of living your life purposefully and with passion. This is your moment to reforge a weakened bond under Venus’s loving light or else part ways as friends, rather than foes.
11. Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
You always take a sophisticated approach to your relationships, drawing from an intellectual, rather than emotional well to express your feelings. However, Venus’s arrival on the 14th casts an irresistible spell of giddiness and abandon where matters of the heart are concerned. After all, what have you got to lose in being open and more approachable? Are you afraid that if you let a bit of your trademark cool slip away you’ll be left unprotected? And if so, unprotected from what? Right now you have an abundance of love and sincere support all around you; let vulnerability be your point of connection.
12. Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
You’re keenly in touch with the emotions of those around you, to an extent that it often leaves you feeling overwhelmed and exposed. While it may seem odd to use Venus’s arrival to advise you to lift up the Piscean drawbridge for awhile, that’s exactly what’s being asked of you. The emotions swirling around you are intense and not altogether healthy, Pisces; make sure you’re not leaving yourself open to harmful or negative influences. Opt for self care and preservation during this Venusian transit instead.
