Venus represents what we value, what makes us content and happy and in Capricorn she has us valuing ambition, hard work, determination and discipline. As she is going retrograde, it is a fine time to revisit and re-evaluate our priorities. Below is an outline of how this impacts each sign based on a solar chart.


December-January Venus Retrograde for Aries

Venus retrograde in your tenth house has you taking a second look at your career and the direction in which you are headed. If you feel you are not being valued where you are at this moment, perhaps it’s time to look around and find ways or places where your assets and talents might be better appreciated. Do a little salary comparison to see if what you’re making is competitive. After so doing, you might want to consider asking for a raise or a restructuring of your benefits.

December-January Venus Retrograde for Taurus

Where has your education brought you and how has it served you? This is a time to consider how you can apply your knowledge base in different directions. There may be other practical uses for you to consider, so give this some thought. Also, look at the resources available to you in places distant from your home turf or the possibility that your talents can be utilized by a broader geographical arena. Sometimes the fact that ones hails from a foreign location gives you greater appeal or credibility.

December-January Venus Retrograde for Gemini

If you’re itching to restructure loans and debts, you’ve just stumbled across the perfect time to look into this matter. Perhaps there are better interest rates out there or other plans that are more attractive than what is currently in place. Use this time to restructure insurance coverage or even look at how your assets will be dispersed when you’re no longer walking on planet earth. Take time to look these various issues over, with the intention of putting new directions in place by the end of January.

December-January Venus Retrograde for Cancer

It’s time to take another look at relationships. Are both parties involved putting in the effort that is needed to make it work? And are you getting out of them what you need? Do you feel as though you’re being taken for granted? This is not to say these relationships are over. It may very well be that it’s time rework the rules, the guidelines and determine whether they are serving a useful purpose. You have through the end of January to come to terms with these issues. Love can always find its way back.

December-January Venus Retrograde for Leo

With Venus moving retrograde in your solar sixth house, there are a couple of possible scenarios to consider. One is your health. This can be a good time to reevaluate your current guidelines. Perhaps some restructuring is in order to allow new routines to find their proper place. And since the sixth house is also associated with work and co-workers, you can expect some roles to shift there as well. Perhaps someone you care about is departing or your talents are being assessed to see where else they may be applied. This should all shake out by the end of January.

December-January Venus Retrograde for Virgo

Do you have some latent talents that you’ve been hiding from the rest of the world? Are you feeling as though some of your creativity could be put to more productive ends? This is a good time to redefine your abilities as well as your passions. And speaking of passions, this can also apply to romantic relationships. Perhaps some of the rules in these relationships need to be revisited and redefined, so that both parties feel that their needs are being met. These are serious issues that need to be addressed, although some humor can always help smooth out the rough edges.

December-January Venus Retrograde for Libra

What do you like about your home? Are you needs changing or perhaps your preferences? What seemed appealing in times past may no longer be ringing your chimes. If you feel as though it’s time for a fresh look, this is a fine time to figure out what will make you smile. You might want to start with what’s on the walls. Perhaps you’re looking for a more functional look or feel. Give this some consideration and don’t hesitate to bring in an expert or two for some wise input.

December-January Venus Retrograde for Scorpio

You and your siblings could be in the process of re-evaluating what is most relevant these days. Time has put a different slant on things so the view of the future looks different. And in your own world, the view in your immediate surroundings seem to be undergoing some revisions. The tale will be completely told by the end of January, but in the meantime, the rebuilding process is an education in and of itself.

December-January Venus Retrograde for Sagittarius

It’s time to restructure your finances, with a long view in mind. Look for ways to run a leaner and meaner machine. The chances are that you have people who can help you with this. They are, in some ways, protectors for you and have enough wisdom and savvy to offer you some hints. You can also use this time to make adjustments in the way you position yourself. Your talents can be applied in a lot of different directions and industries, so investigate where you can fit in.

December-January Venus Retrograde for Capricorn

Are you ready for a new look? Do you feel that your style no longer reflects who you are? This is the perfect time to revise how your project yourself, now that Venus is moving retrograde in your sign and therefore your solar first house. Remember that this is a whole package kind of revision, so feel free to tackle anything from hair and skin to the outer coverings. Sometimes clothes really do tell an important tale.

December-January Venus Retrograde for Aquarius

It’s time to sit down and reconnect with your guardian angels. It seems that your priorities are changing so a little help from your invisible guides is in order. Start laying out a tentative map for the future, based on this realigned perspective. The rules are changing, so it may take a while to figure out how they work to your benefit. The picture becomes increasingly more obvious as late January arrives.

December-January Venus Retrograde for Pisces

You’re one who is known to be pliable and bend over backwards to make others feel comfortable. Perhaps you’re coming to the harsh realization that your energies could be more effectively placed elsewhere, and invested in others who understand you. In reality, this is not so harsh. You’ve done all you can. Peruse the landscape and discover new avenues of investment. You’ll feel better for having made this shift, once you see the results.
