January 2014: Venus Retrograde in Capricorn
Venus turns Retrograde once every year and a half. During a Retrograde cycle, a planet appears to move backwards in the sky. The idea of going backwards makes it a favorable time to re-evaluate. So, Venus Retrograde makes it a good time to review relationships and finances – and possibly to create some New Year’s Resolutions in these areas of your life.
The sign Capricorn is conservative and old-fashioned. In relationships, qualities like reliability, faithfulness, and dependability become more important than romance or candy and flowers.
So, this is a good time to re-evaluate relationships overall. Are you satisfied where you are? Would you like to meet someone new? How do you get along with co-workers?
