Week of Feb. 3–Feb. 10
ARIES (March 21 – April 19) What could be sexier than a sleek, eye-catching business card, Aries? Well, pretty much nothing as sweet Venus works her way in Capricorn, your tenth house of longterm goals and work. If you’re looking for love, now’s the time you might start to see that workhorse in accounting in a new light. Practical, reliable are the big draws for your unpredictable ass during this transit. If they’ve got potential career connections for you, they’re on your radar.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20) Time to expand your horizons, Taurus. I know, eating at the same restaurants every week brings you deep joy. But if you haven’t found your true love yet, it’s probably not going to happen at one of your regular spots. As the planet of love works her way into your ninth house of expansion, it’s time to look at the big picture and open your mind to new ways of thinking. You might plan trip that finds you love overseas, or take a trip with bae to reignite that burning flame.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20) Oh no, are feelings starting to bubble to the surface, Gemini? How uncooth. You’re more the thinking type, I get it, but as Venus works her way into Capricorn, and your eighth house of intimacy, you’ll be propelled toward a wormhole of repressed emotion. It’s a time to process, work through, and reveal. If you’ve been coy about how you feel about a special someone (ahem, all signs are pointing to most likely) it’s time to let your guard down and be vulnerable.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22) OMG, Cancer, the stars are aligning, the birds are chirping, and bae is texting back on time! It’s a miracle, my dear Crab, and as Venus works her way through Capricorn, your seventh house of committed partnerships, it’s no wonder your one and only is your main focus. This transit is either the perfect time to find a longterm bae, or will help to heat up any loving relationship you’re currently nurturing. Get ready to fall even deeper in love.
LEO (July 23 – Aug. 22) Did bae do the dishes, Leo? Fold your laundry? Refill the dishsoap? Nothing is going to be sexier than the little things as Venus works her way through your sixth house of day-to-day routines. It’s the little things that count and will make a big difference in winning over the reins to your gigantic, loving heart. So if your bae’s asking what you want for Valentine’s Day, it’s likely your preferred over-the-top display of affection will be a lot simpler to satisfy this time around the sun.
VIRGO (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22) Aw, is someone feeling a little mushy, Virgo? Throw your analytical nature out the window as Venus moves into Capricorn, your fifth house of romance, drama, and creativity. It’s simple: Life might just seem a little sweeter with your one and only during this transit. If you’re looking for love, you might find yourself overzealous to pair up. Single Virgos: It’s a good time to speed date, build up that confidence and efficiently go through the losers. No time to get stuck on any fuck boys.
LIBRA (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22) You know what’s romantic, Libra? Well, of course you do. You set the romance standards in the zodiac, but this time around you’re looking for a partner who can nurture. Venus is in Capricorn, which is a dedicated, family-oriented sign and highlights your fourth house of domestic life and home. Instead of attention-grabbing gifts, you might take notice of how good of a parent (dog and cat parents count) your partner is, and that might be just enough to fuel your romantic fire for the next few weeks.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21) Almost always elusive, you know what you’re about to appreciate Scorpio? Some straightforward and honest communication! I’m not really sure you’re so deserving of this, since you’re constantly holding back how you really feel, but I digress. For the next few weeks Capricorn works her way through your third house of communication, and you’ll find yourself valuing the friendship you share with your partner. That’s right, even over steamy, hot sex. Priorities will include: open and honest dialogue and possibly a few games of Scrabble.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21) You want it all, Sagittarius: travel the world, a game-changing mansion, the love of a lifetime who understands the word freedom. I really do believe you can achieve it, but this time around your focus is on showstopping gifts and displays of affection as Venus transits through your second house of values and income. Your love life might start to reflect the immortal words of Ariana Grande’s “7 Rings”–I want it, I got it. Most direct route to your heart: dropping some serious cash and surprising you with a gift.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19) The planet of love is in your sign, Capricorn! Guess what that means: You have an excuse to focus on yourself! This transit lights up your first house of self and image. It’s a time to regroup, gather your thoughts, and plan out your next steps. The best form of love you can focus on during this transit is self-care. If you have to include bae, then get a couple’s massage.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18) It’s time to move on, Aquarius. Growing pains aren’t fun for anyone, but a chapter in your love life is closing. That doesn’t necessarily guarantee the end (although for many it might). Venus is in Capricorn, which marks your 12th house of closure, spirituality, and healing. If a relationship isn’t coming to a close, you could be going through a particularly spiritual and transformative ride.
PISCES (Feb. 19 – March 20) If you’re on dating apps, now’s the time to swipe, Pisces! Venus in Capricorn highlights your 11th house of technology and groups. It’s the perfect time to meet a potential bae through a dating app, or a mixer. Put yourself out there with a new group of friends and see where it leads. Could lead to your forever. Sigh. If you’re coupled, it’s a good time to use technology to your advantage: search Groupon for some good getaway deals, anyone?
