Right now Venus is present in the sign Capricorn but on December 20th that will change. On that day, Venus moves into the sign Aquarius and with its movement comes another energetic shift.

When Venus is in Aquarius we gain some pretty interesting energies and lose some that were pushing us drastically. Because Aquarius comes with a very open-minded energy chances are, as this move occurs you will finally be able to wind-down. When Venus is present in the sign Aquarius we all end up focusing more on the people around us. We work to enhance the relationships and friendships already in place and if we’re single, we find someone to spend our time with. While this whole ordeal is a great time for you to really put yourself out there, you should remember to do-so only within reason. 

According to AstroMatrix, during the time these two are with one another, you will feel more independent and able to approach things in a much less serious manner. Rather than stressing so severely, you’ll be able to work in a more spontaneous light. While that might sound a bit odd, the more present these energies become the more sense they will make.

Because Venus is a planet that rules over our desires, money and one-on-one relationships it is a big deal for it to move. Each time this planet ends up in a different sign we face something unique and extreme. While Aquarius makes things a bit confusing, you can handle all that is headed your way. wrote as follows on the topic:

The line between love and friendship is very thin once Venus enters Aquarius! Aquarius rules friendship and groups of all kinds, so during this transit, we often find ourselves falling for people we already know. We may realize those we’ve previously written off as “just friends” could be our perfect match. The likelihood of meeting a new lover through mutual friends and social outings also increases greatly while Venus is in Aquarius.

Aquarius is less attached to its emotions than other signs, relying more on the head than the heart when relating to others. We aren’t so interested in connecting over passionate encounters and sweet nothings while Venus is in Aquarius — instead, we want to unite with those who think the same as we do. Aquarius’ loose grip on love gives Venus room to move, making love less sticky and partnership less confining. Those who like the warm and squishy stuff might find others a bit standoffish during this transit. However, the Aquarian approach is less possessive and can bring a needed breath of reason and fresh air to partnerships.

If in a committed relationship, Venus in Aquarius lightens the level of intimacy and encourages us to reconnect with the honesty, friendship, and common interests that drew us to our partners in the first place. Working together on an environmental or social cause that’s meaningful to both partners can also help rekindle hearts during this transit. We may even find that we feel a lot freer to be individuals within our relationships. Venus in Aquarius makes it clear that pursuing our own passions separately enriches what we bring back to our relationships.

For people who are single and ready to mingle, this is one of the best times to do it! The planet of love and desire in the sign of idealism and creativity puts an unconventional — even experimental — flair on romance and opens our minds about who and how we love. Parties with friends organized meetups, and protests and other social causes are hotspots for meeting like-minded lovers now. And because Aquarius also likes things a little weird, we may find ourselves interested in people and experiences that we have never been attracted to before. Long story short: The more open we are now, the more likely we are to find love.

While Venus is in Aquarius, we are drawn to modern, original forms of art and personal style. It’s a great time to experiment with new ways of dress and decor. We also find greater benefit from high-tech gadgets, and splurging on new electronics now can help us well beyond this transit.

If you feel like you’re becoming overwhelmed during the time that Venus is in Aquarius remember that there is nothing wrong with taking a moment to be alone and breathe. You are in charge of all that is happening and if you are not comfortable, you can choose to remove yourself. While being social is fun, sometimes it can be too much for us.
