There's nothing prim and puritanical about Venus in Capricorn. If anything, the planet of love and beauty is too matter of fact when she’s traveling through the zodiac sign of the goat. It's sex for sex sake and you can forget about dressing it up in romantic hopes, soul mate wishes and fairy tale endings. Cynical maybe? Perhaps. But Venus' opposition to Jupiter in Cancer (which will take place this week and then again on Feb. 1) shows that even the most jaded heart carries inside its secret chamber the soul of a closet romantic. How this emerges and the way that it will go on to transform your life is a story that only the next nine weeks can tell.

It will be strange to find yourself in a romantic situation where the shoe is now on the other foot. If you were the one who was loved too little, then you will now find yourself loved too much or if you were the one who was pursued, then you will now be cast in the role of pursuer. These sorts of role reversals often take place when Venus opposes Jupiter (Nov. 28). It's the stars' way of getting you to see what life feels like from the other person's perspective.
