Venus Star Point in Capricorn: The power of Love

Venus Star Point: Venus and the Sun conjunct in Capricorn on January 8, 2022

On January 8, 2022 at 6:47pm CST, the Sun and Venus are conjunct at 18° Capricorn 43’. Venus is retrograde, meaning it is closest to the Earth now, as well as being in the heart of the Sun. This conjunction between Venus and the Sun is starting a whole new 19-month Venus Cycle. For me, I feel like I am hearing my heart’s voice more, like it is amped up over all of the other noise and distractions of the external world.    

Venus turned retrograde just after it was conjunct with Pluto in Capricorn, and because it is traveling so slowly, actually travels with Pluto for a long time while in Capricorn and conjuncts Pluto three times while here. 

Pluto in Capricorn is taking a hammer to our institutions, structures, forms, foundations, everything that has up until now seemed solid and built to last. Why? Pluto is not out just to destroy and sow chaos. Pluto is out to destroy anything that is holding back the evolution of both the collective soul of humanity and each individual soul. If it is not built on a foundation of authenticity and truth, it will be dismantled. If it is something that is not going to serve our soul evolution, it must be destroyed so that energy can be freed up for something else more in alignment with our true essence.  

Venus is feeling that powerful energy of Pluto, fueling us to think about what really matters to us, what we truly value and cherish, what we hold dear and love. Love is in and of itself a powerful force, and the question to ask yourself with a Plutonian Venus is what am I using this powerful force in service of? 

Capricorn is a sign of manifestation, and Venus here can really help us manifest with heart wisdom. When our hearts and wills are aligned, we will be in service to the Divine and manifest from a place of knowing we are not an island but an integral strand in a web. The indigenous peoples considered their actions over several generations, and we would be the better for it if we followed their example.
