Venus Is in Retrograde and It’s Capricorn Season! Here’s Your Horoscope for the Week of December 20

Weekly Horoscope

Yes, you read that correctly. Venus is now in Retrograde starting December 19 and will last until January 29. With it being in close proximity with Earth, the energies of this retrograde is actually much stronger than the infamous Mercury Retrograde and it affects the areas in our life that Venus rules over—that is, everything related to art and beauty, pleasure, and money.

As it retrogrades while the sun is in Capricorn (December 21), this astrological phenomenon requires us to evaluate our relationships and financial situations and to be prepared for situations we may not be expecting such as sudden reappearances of exes or tension at work over a promotion you’re eying.

As always, try to be honest with what you want out of your relationships or career and do the work to achieve that, no matter the setbacks.

Here’s how the energies of the Venus Retrograde and the Capricorn season will affect you this week:

Aries (March 21 to April 19)

Be careful about prioritizing your self-interests at this time as doing so too much may lead to greediness. Remember that material gains won’t solve your problems and constantly working yourself to the bone won’t make you feel happy and fulfilled. Think about things with objectivity and weigh all your options before making important decisions. Take time to enjoy what you have!

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Your current state of mind is just prioritizing yourself, but be careful not to make careless decisions to feed your ego and live too much in the moment. Be considerate to the people around you and how your impulsive decisions can affect them. You may be faced with a lot of setbacks in the coming days too, but just remember that they’re only temporary. Keep your head up and look forward with a positive mindset!

Gemini (May 21 – June 21)

Be careful about being too immersed in your career that you end up losing sight of the more important things in your life. Whenever you feel overwhelmed with all the tasks you need to do, or when you’re struggling to balance work and leisure time, just take a break! You may even start to realize what tasks aren’t good for you in the long run and finally let them go.

Cancer (June 22 – July 22)

Certain situations have led you to reevaluate your life and realize just how much you’ve become trapped in your own negativity. It’s time to purge this baggage and heal from your pains in order to move forward with positivity. Learn from your mistakes and let go of the anxious thoughts that warp your view of what’s real. And, once you’re ready, open yourself up to receive the love that’s coming your way.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

You may be experiencing an emotional blockage at the moment which is affecting your relationship with friends, family, or your partner. Learn to forgive and heal from your wounds and just give each other the love you both need and deserve from each other. Keeping that balance is necessary at this time, so work together to achieve that.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

You may think that being busy is a sign of fulfillment but you need to understand that overcommitting to do so much at once is never good for you. Give yourself room to breathe! Remember what you’re doing all this for. Learn where to invest your time and resources on. Keep in mind also to not neglect your relationships in the process. Balance is key!

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Current situations in your life may have made you feel like you’re getting the short end of the stick, but there’s no use looking for who or what to blame this misfortune on. Bad days will always come—but they’re only temporary. Give yourself mental health breaks and recharge your energies with your loved ones! When you’re ready, process what just happened and just let it go.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Things may not have been going according to plan lately and it’s starting to stress you out. However, don’t try and resort to underhanded methods just to achieve your goals. You’ll only hurt yourself and those around you in the process. Learn to embrace your failures! Don’t let them stop you from trying new things and chasing after your dreams.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

You may be feeling dissatisfied with where you are currently and it’s making you so stressed. It’s okay to let out your feelings; it’s by expressing this pain and sadness that you’ll be able to start your healing process. Use this time to think about what your purpose in life is and if that’s really what you want to do. Don’t be afraid to seek new opportunities beyond your comfort zone, as long as they will lead you to fulfillment.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

So many changes are happening around you and it’s overwhelming you to the point that you’d rather escape your reality and retreat to your fantasies. However, doing so won’t really free you from your situation. You have to embrace these changes and allow them to change you, your beliefs, and your goals in life. You may not be able to control what happens to you but you can choose where your life will go from there.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Remember to take some time out of your busy schedule to reflect on where you are now, what you’ve been doing prior, and where you think you’re headed. Doing so provides you clarity on whether you’re still on the right track. Evaluate your priorities! It’ll also help to broaden your horizons and learn new things by joining communities that align with your interests.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

It was tough but you made it; you worked so hard to recover from your failures, to heal from your pains, and to forgive those who hurt you including yourself. Now that you’ve been able to understand what you need and want in your life, you can now make room for joy once again. Be proud of everything you’ve done! Release this weight you’ve been carrying on your shoulders and enjoy your time with the people who love you.
