Venus in Capricorn - Picture Perfect Symbols of Success

Actor/Icon James Dean has Venus in Capricorn
'I think there is only one form of greatness for man. If a man can bridge the gap between life and death.
 I mean, if he can live on after he has died, then maybe he was a great man. 
To me the only success, the only greatness, is immortality.'
After her raucous romp across the vast open spaces of fiery Sagittarius from the 9th January, 2013 Venus artfully picks her way deftly through the earthy terrain of Cardinal Capricorn. All the while she is alert for new sources of stimulation and enchantment in this earth sign. She will spend her time assuming an air of minimal fuss and bother and trying to project an aloof and elegant image while needing high standards of service and having more than a few demands. Venus will be trying to impress whoever she meet and greets here until the 2nd February, 2013 when she will get much more casual and uniquely ‘weird’ over Aquarian air space.
Actress Faye Dunaway has Venus in Capricorn
'I still have a lot of years and there are still a lot of things I want to do'
Venus is indulgent (Venus Come Out Of Your Shell) she loves to feed the body, she like to anoint it, making it look, smell and feel ‘ohh la la’. That is really what she is all about initially. There are other things she loves of course, such as beauty in all it's forms. Here in Capricorn she has a ready appreciation of all the finer things of life, art, culture and social connections. Relationships are also very much a part of her main objectives here. Yet, with Capricorn we are really talking values so money and fairness will come under the highly desirable objectives of this material Venus. A run through the Venus in Capricorn shopping list will give us a real clue of just how fundamental and central Venus is to our lives. Love and Money, get those twin objectives under control and most Venus Capricorns will feel that they have a good handle on their life and become quite secure in that knowledge. Most of us will not deny the need for either objective and some will not have to even try.
Actor/Director/Racing Driver/Sauce making Entrepreneur Paul Newman has Venus in Capricorn
Newman's second law: 'just when things look darkest, they go black'
Venus has been enjoying a laugh recently in front of the warm fires of Sagittarius. Hearty and adventurous she has been using her keen intellect and philosophical mindset to get what she needed for the past month and has really got all of us kind of used to this way of being. We have been making sure not to leave a stone unturned in our desire to expand our world and enjoy good times with the ones we love. How different it will be now Capricorn is running this ‘Love ‘n Money Show’. We need to look like we mean business for a start because Capricorn loves to be kept in the manner to which she is accustomed, quality, elegance, integrity lashed through with a general air of professionalism. Capricorn is very concerned by organisation and acutely distressed by what looks and feels haphazard. Capricorn is also impressed by fortitude and distressed by flightiness and Capricorn wants loyalty and above all, that old fashioned charming word, 'class'.  With Venus in Capricorn the understated look that says taste is where she is at but she will also needs to impress. Sloppy, slapdash and disrespectful will not do and will definitely get Capricorns goat. Wealth, intellectual or material that will do nicely yes that gets the Capricorn juices going so does tangible, practical application of ideas and real, genuine demonstrations of care.
Actress/Activist Darryl Hannah has Venus in Capricorn
'Sometimes it's a character you want to play or a story you want to tell. Sometimes it's just to pay the bills'
Capricorn wants us to apply our attention to our ambitions, to what is worth all the hard slog and sweat. With Venus the Goddess of Love here for a while she will urge us to sample the delights gained from striving and attaining, shouldering our duties and basking in the glow of helping others. She will want us to understand the physical world and equally to understand the psychology and complexity of human interactions. 
Actor David Hemmings has Venus in Capricorn
'Look at the film buyers and sellers in Cannes any year and you're basically looking at a lot of shoe salesman working out whether it should be sneakers or lace-ups next year'
Secretly Venus in Capricorn can be the true psychologist of the zodiac. She will want us to make something better of ourselves. Even 'fake it to make it' could work, if that gets the right results. Capricorn is all about the results but it is also in for the long haul and does not necessarily expect, or even trust, immediacy. Rewards must be earned, things take time after all and they may take a while to show up but will be worth the wait. So Venus in Capricorn will need us to stop all that hilarity, frivolity and merriment of the festive season during Venus in Sagittarius because now is the time to get serious, get real and well, just bloody-well get on with it!
Actress Gemma Atherton has Venus in Capricorn
'I am terrible at video games and I am really competitive. And if I am not the best at something, I go absolutely crazy...I don't know why it's still taboo to be a feminist'
We will all have a month where our relationships may get a bit more serious, deepen and which requires some level of commitment. It will become that much more important to honour ourselves and those around us, to have integrity and to honour people's inner authority. It is also important to try and obey man-made laws and traditions as well as natural ones. Before we get too carried away on high-handedness, it may also be the case that we get much more dour, isolate, quiet and very boundaried. It could also be that we get so stuck in old rigid patterns that we have automatically relied upon without due thought or challenge, we could find walls of granite around us instead of a more desired open and porous substance which could allow for necessary flexibility and change.
Actor Christian Bale has Venus in Capricorn
'I have this theory that depending on your attitude, your life does not have to become this ridiculous charade that it seems so many people end up living'
Key to understanding what is going on for us is to look at where in ourselves we have a ‘Capricorn-signature’. We all have degrees in our birth chart that are receptive to any Capricorn vibration, our personal Capricorn divining rods. Look at how smoothly the matters connected to your Capricorn house and planets are running and notice how things function here. Evaluate any room for improvement, make a list of priorities, roll your sleeves up and begin.  
If you have Capricorn spanning the 5th zone of Romance and Creativity you may find your ‘fun time’ gets a perk, as does what you do for the sheer love of it. Things may deepen and even go to another more profound level. 
Actor Brad Pitt has Venus in Capricorn has been described as one of the world's most attractive men. He is  in a 'perfect' high profile relationship with actress Angelina Jolie also becoming more involved in social issues setting up the Jolie-Pitt foundation. Secret marriage rumours around Christmas, if true, will have deepened his Capricorn need for security and commitment.
'I believe you make your day. You make your life. So much of it is all perception, and this is the form I built for myself. I have to accept it and work within these compounds and its up to me' 

If your own Venus is in Capricorn then this is a time to welcome in the new arrivals in the shape of people or coins. This is your time to really 'work it'.
For a Sun sign Capricorn this stuff is easy but even a ‘seriously, lets get down to business’ type Capricorn needs a touch of the absurd and to feel more relaxed and unrestrained from time to time. Your hearts desire to attain your goals and weather any storms with aplomb and your cool professionalism will get an extra boost this month for good measure.
The late John F Kennedy Junior had Venus in Capricorn
Another high profile Kennedy death along with his wife Caroline and her sister Lauren, with its ongoing incumbent theories of cover-ups and conspiracies
'It's hard for me to talk about a legacy or mystique. It's my family'
This period usually finds many of us hitting the gym, attempting to hit our resolution's targets, hitting new targets, hitting the sales or hitting holiday websites hard. It will be noticed that we will have to face our current duties, obligations and realities with a little bit more grace and determination. Stepping on the scales is sometimes scary enough but it is better to face the reality so that you know exactly what you dealing with and to grasp the true scale of your task so that you may apply the most effective strategy to reach your goal - this is what Capricorn the wise mountain goat instinctively knows and advises. The mountain goat know where the peaks are on the horizon so it follow the troughs diligently because the troughs precede the peaks and they lead to the foothills. Then it is all about scaling the heights and up we climb driving towards the ultimate goal. Worth the effort then.. the only way is onwards and upwards.
