Venus as the planet that rules your dating area will generally bring you love this year as it does every year but other energy in play now which will incline Capricorns to find someone to love. The Venus retrograde time in 2018 will be a period for reassessing your love life. If you are single and meet someone at this time wait until Venus has gone directly before counting the relationship as a possible future life. If you are married the time frame can be when old issues are brought up again and it is like they can never be let off. If something happened in the past in your current romance it may raise its head again. Know that this too shall pass and that it is part of life to face things and move forward.
Venus the planet of love will enter your romance zone from April 1st to May 25th which make this period good for love and romance. Falling in love and being in love will be themes for this month.
Then from April 21st to May 22nd you will be happy and eager to get out there and meet people as the Sun brings light to your romances. Whether you do find love remains to be seen but the planets are aligned then so it augers well. If you are usually and indoors type you will be more inclined to go outside in the sunshine and soak up the energy of the Sun.
In May the outer planet Uranus stimulates your romantic area and you may suddenly find yourself on a date or in a relationship. This will come when you are not expecting it. It could be that you see the girl or boy next door in a new light or start to go out with someone who was a friend. This new person could also be someone whom in the past you never considered as marriage material. From now on you can expect the unexpected in your love life. Be open and truthful and you will find your world will get exciting and fast paced like never before.
When the big decisions of moving in or getting an engaged pop up it can be unsettling for you. Saturn rules not doing things on the spur of the moment and with the Moon ruling your marriage sector you will go back and forth on, 'She loves me, she loves me not.' The dilemma is yours and not theirs. Take your time before extending or accepting an offer of betrothal. If possible, accept or offer invitations just after any New Moon as this will encourage the relationship to grow in both light and love. The Moon rules your partnership zone and so will always influence your serious partnerships and marriage.
Your partnership is excited by the love planet's energy from May 20th to June 14th which brings love and your significant other. This is a good time of the year for a wedding or to move in together as a couple. You may not be ready for such a change but the subject is likely to come up. Even making a commitment of love can be a product of this planetary position. Each year Venus will pass through this area of your life and you won't fall in love each year but you will have love on your mind and front and center for a while.
Then quickly following Venus through your relationship area is the Sun stimulating committed couples from June 21st to July 22nd and this spotlights any person that you choose individually. This combination presents you a long time from the end of May to near the end of July for the serious partnership to form. If you are already married your relationship will bloom at this time and your heart will be warmed by your spouse. It will be a super time and you should spend it together perhaps having a picnic or getting couple's massages.
When the planet that rules your romance is depressed or debilitated by moving backward or when is a difficult sign your love life can suffer hesitations and hiccups. For Capricorns this planet is the Moon. The Moon will have two special times when it is not strong and they can affect your partnerships because the Moon rules your marriage sector.
The first lunar eclipse of the year on January 27th, although darkening your marriage planet the Moon for a few hours, will be a time to just be and to let things go. This is not the day for changes in your partnership situation.
The second lunar eclipse on July 13th in Cancer lies in your relationships sector and this creates a double whammy energy reduction for Capricorn in your marriage or serious commitment area of life because the reflected light of Moon is covered by the presence of the Earth. It is not lengthy but will bring a few days when your love life can be darkened by a shadow for a day or two. Make sure to give yourself enough time for major life changes and don't make knee jerk reactions regarding your partnerships and how you feel about them now.
Venus retrograde from October 5th to November 16th is not a good time for committed relationship or to enter wedlock. As Venus is the ruler of your love life end romantic area this time can be one for taking a good look at the romances in which you find yourself embroiled. If they do not sit well with you may be a good decision to let love die so your heart can move on.
