Venus Transit & Retrograde in Capricorn in 2021-22.


We are about to begin the Venus retrograde in Capricorn which will take us from 2021 to 2022. So, let’s look at this Venus retrograde in Capricorn to Sagittarius and its impact on our lives.



Venus goes retrograde after every 18 months and this time it will go retrograde in the sign of Capricorn and it will go back into Sagittarius. Normally, Venus transit into a sign takes about 20 to 25 days and hence nothing much concrete can be predicted for such a short time, but when it goes retrograde in any sign, then it slows down its pace, moves back & forth and hence takes about 3-4 months to cover the sign which it normally covers in 25 days max. Hence, it is considerably longer time and we can predict things/events for this time period. This time also, although Venus is starting retrograde movement on 19th Dec, 2021 in the sign of Capricorn but majority of this retro transit will be in Sagittarius sign and Venus will stay in Sagittarius from 30th Dec, 2021 to 28th Feb, 2022. Hence, it is good enough period to predict things and events.



As we go through this article, we will deal in detail as to what different factors can be attached with Venus Retrograde in general and Venus Retrograde in Capricorn/Sagittarius in specific. Now, let’s begin to first understand all the important things attached with coming Venus Retrograde.



Venus - Venus represents Beauty, Desire and Love. Venus is the main significator of Marriage. Venus represents Girlfriend or Wife for a Man. Venus is the significator of all relations, may it be Husband-Wife or Mother-Daughter. Venus is Wealth & Conveniences, Vehicles & Luxuries. Venus’s highest representation is Service and Devotion, which is where Venus is most pious.



Capricorn - Capricorn is the 10th sign of Zodiac Belt, hence it represents many things related with 10th house of horoscope like Law and Order, Government, Authority, Organisation, Discipline etc. Besides it also represents World outside your home and people, Fear and Anxiety etc. Capricorn is consisted of next 2 and half Nakshatra, i.e. Uttar-Ashadha, Shravana and Dhanishtha. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn and that's why it represents Fear and Anxiety.



Sagittarius – Sagittarius is the 9th sign of zodiac belt, hence it represents many things related with the 9th house of horoscope like Religion, Knowledge, Wisdom, Higher Learnings, Gurus, Teachings from your Father etc. Besides it also represents Coaching, Universities, Professors and Preachers, Higher Wisdom, Written Law of the Land etc. Sagittarius has next set of 2 and half nakshatra which are Mula, Purva-Ashadha and Uttara-Ashadha. Sagittarius' lord is Jupiter.



Venus in Capricorn –Venus is in the sign of Authority and Recognition, so one obvious result is that these people are in love of authority, status and fame. They love to achieve a higher rank in life. Even for love partners, they will naturally attract towards someone who is in authority or famous and they finally get these partners only. But as Venus is in Saturn ruled sign, most of the times it happens with delay in life. Here Creativity of Venus gives results in 30s of person after much delay and hard work. Venus in Capricorn are absolutely strict people about their creative pursuits of life. A guy having this position of Venus might look for a lady older in age, as Saturn represents old age. Although Venus is in the sign of its friend Saturn, but this is the thing with Saturn that anywhere it does its job of delaying things or asking for commitment/seriousness. So, basically creativity will come to fore, when a person shows complete dedication towards it with perseverance. So, it may look like a difficult position for any creative field but this is the position which will give sustained success once creativity is perfected through hard-work. As Capricorn is sign for Government, this position can also show someone earning through Government or Authority. A great placement for someone who wants to gain fame and authority through creative endeavors and ready to put dedication and perseverance.



Venus in Sagittarius – Venus is into the sign of knowledge, higher wisdom and philosophical learning of life. So, these people have love towards reading books of higher knowledge and philosophy. They are not attracted towards look of a person, but knowledge and wisdom takes precedence over these things. Person's knowledge level is what attracts them towards someone. They would love going to religious place. They love to read and know about different cultures & religions and look for a partner who is more like a guide. As such, they attract same type of people in their lives. But as Venus is in Jupiter's sign which knows to expand the things, here wealth expands gradually. They can also earn through higher knowledge and education. But it is extra-ordinary placement if someone wants to attain great knowledge of the world and beyond. Their best idea of date is going to a religious/spiritual place. Their best idea of conversation with love interest is something of higher knowledge. Their best idea of gifting something to others is a book.




Retrograde Planets – Mars, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter and Saturn go through retrograde phases. These phases are of different time periods from 21 days to about 4 to 5 months. Retrograde is actually when a planet is closer to Earth and that’s why, while looking from Earth, it looks like planet is moving backwards as it is slower in its speed than Earth. So, retrograde is actually an optical illusion. Planet doesn’t move backwards but it only looks-like moving backwards. So, 1st thing retrograde time brings is confusion related with the planet that is retrograde. Also, as retrograde planet is closer to Earth, the best way to understand a retrograde planet is to imagine someone just standing right next to you and looking at you. How would you feel? You will definitely be impacted by the intense energy of that person. The same ways, when a planet goes retrograde and come closer to Earth, its rays are reaching us with great intensity. That’s why; retrograde season, when most planets go through retrograde cycle, can be the most intense time on Earth. It also means that retrograde planet will almost push/force us to act in matters related to the planet or house/sign where it is retrograde by creating some or the other situations. As retrograde time is about moving backwards though only as an illusion, retrograde motion of a planet also shows that we reflect back on things related to that planet or house/sign where it is retrograde. Basically, during direct motion of planet, planet gives us many indications about things to correct or sort-out but if we don’t take any proactive measure then planet is forced to create some events and circumstances during its retrograde motion under which we will be forced to take actions in those matters. So eventually, retrograde cycles are good which force us to take actions which were long overdue. Last but not the least, a person born with retrograde planets also follows the same path where in early life he makes mistakes related with retrograde planet and in later life, he improves or corrects those mistakes.



Venus Retrograde – Venus retrograde is normally a 40 days long period in which Venus moves backwards or at least it looks like that from Earth. Generally speaking, Venus represents our conveniences in life and when it is retrograde then in its most literal sense, it means that our conveniences are going back. It means that we are supposed to live a life of inconvenience in these 40 days. But as I said, it is most literal meaning. Things are much deeper in Astrology. Retrograde literally means Reverting Back or Reflecting Back. So, whichever planet goes retrograde during transit or even when it is retrograde in Birth Chart, it makes us reflect or think over things related to that planet. As Venus represents Relationship, Wealth and Convenience aspects of life, people also reflect back on their wealth & luxuries but as relationships remain the key aspect of almost everyone’s life, Venus retrograde normally leads to the situations where person reflects back to the fact that if he/she is in right relationship? Normally, we tend to project the flaws in relationship on other person but retrograde Venus is an opportunity to look within and find out the reasons behind troubles in relations. So, Venus retrograde normally leads to some uneasy situations in relations, either married or not, when couple starts reflecting back as to what is wrong or missing. But it is not all negative all the time. Venus retrograde is also the time when Venus will be closer to Earth, hence its rays will be reaching more intensely. Whenever any planet is retrograde, it remains the most prominent time for events related to that planet. As Venus is mainly about relations, this can also be time of getting into new relation if someone is single or an ex-lover can come back in life. At the same time, Venus Retrograde is not considered as an auspicious time to begin a new relationship as there can be some confusion or illusion involved with it. Another thing is when do we actually reflect or think back over something? When things don’t go as per our wishes or when we feel like we failed at those things. So, Venus retrograde can be a good time to introspect why relations and wealth aspect of our life is not as we wished so?



Last Venus Retrograde – It is interesting to note that last 3 Venus retrogrades were in signs where Venus was in good dignity. In 2017, Venus was retrograde in Pisces, where Venus is exalted (http://astrosaxena.com/ven17). It was between Jan, 2017 to May, 2017 and it was a good time for relationship overall. Although expectations were really high in relations due to exalted nature of Venus but I still know some of my friends or clients getting into relation or having a reunion with their partner. Then Venus was retrograde in Libra sign, where it is in own sign (https://www.astrosaxena.com/ven18). It was between Sep, 2018 to Dec, 2018. As Venus and Libra both represent relationship, it was a tough time for relationship or I should say tough for a balanced relationship. Actually, Jupiter & Venus both were retro in Libra which was a great reminder or learning phase to many people who take their spouse or partner for granted and expect them to do all the adjustments in marital life. Then Venus went retrograde in another own sign Taurus (https://www.astrosaxena.com/Ven2020) between March, 2020 to July, 2020. As Venus and Taurus both represent wealth, it proved to be good time financially for majority of people



Now, Venus will start retrograde in its friendly sign in Capricorn and move back into neutral sign Sagittarius. Again, Venus will be in good dignity in both signs, at least it is not losing dignity. Hence, we can expect some good results in matters of wealth and conveniences but relationships would have its normal challenges where people may need to find ways to sustain their relationship in a balanced way.



Venus Retrograde Impacts – Now, we can split the impact of Venus retrograde in following parts –


  • As per Karaka and sign– First of all, Venus retrograde will make us reflect back on relation/marriage. It can be other relations like between siblings or parent/child too. So, relations are going to be at stake. People will retrospect on how to maintain a meaningful relation or what they can do or what their partner should do for the same? So, as I see, focus may not be on compromising or adjusting in relation but on a balanced relation where both sides accommodate with each other. People will also reflect back on their wealth or conveniences factor and may try to improve the same.
  • As per Houses – Also, Venus retrograde will make us reflect on things related to the houses it rules, house it sits in birth chart and the house it is transiting in Capricorn/Sagittarius signs as per your chart. Like for me as a Scorpio ascendant, Venus will make me reflect on things related to 7th house/Taurus, 12th house/Libra, 3rd house/Capricorn and 2nd house/Sagittarius as I have Venus there in birth chart too. So, any Scorpio ascendant person will reflect back at things related to these houses and take necessary actions for improvement.


Venus’s Aspects – During this transit, Venus will first aspect Cancer sign from Capricorn and then Venus will aspect Gemini sign from Sagittarius. So, it will also impact the house where Cancer and Gemini fall in your chart. Venus’s aspect is more about Love and Desire. Wherever Venus aspects, we desire to be involved in things related to that house. Venus aspect on Cancer will show our love towards nourishment and care. Venus aspect on Gemini will show our love towards communications and connecting with others. It can also be love towards the houses where Cancer and Gemini fall in your chart.



Dashas – As always, this transit of Venus will be more influential on those people who are going through Venus Dashas. It doesn’t mean that for others it won’t do anything. 4-5 months of retrograde/transit period is good enough time to give some results.



Venus Retrograde in Birth Chart – Those who are born with Venus retrograde in their birth chart will get some additional intensity from this retrograde transit but as they have Venus retrograde in birth chart, they are used to see such intensity in Venus related matters in their lives.



Retrograde Period – Venus will start retrograde in Capricorn from 19th Dec, 2021 and will remain in Capricorn till 29th Dec, 2021. Then it will go into Sagittarius and will retrograde there till 29th Jan, 2022. So, 30 out of 40 days in retrograde motion, Venus will be in Sagittarius. Then Venus will stay in Sagittarius till 27th Feb, 2022 before entering in Capricorn again. So, if we see it logically then it is more a Venus retrograde transit in Sagittarius, rather than Capricorn.



Shadow Period – Venus will start retrograde on 19th Dec, 2021 at 2 degree Capricorn and will go back till 16 degree Sagittarius on 29th Jan, 2022. Although, the retrograde motion will finish on 29th Jan, but Venus will remain in Shadow Period till it again reaches 2 degree of Capricorn on 2nd March, 2022. Shadow Period is when the planet is although moving ahead but still gives the results of retrograde motion till it reaches the point from where it started retrograde motion. So, from 19th Dec, 2021 onwards till 2nd March, 2022, either Venus is in retrograde time or shadow period.



Other Planets – Likewise, if a person has planet/planets in Capricorn or Sagittarius in birth chart then Venus transiting over that planet/planets will make person focus on things related to that planet too. Now, the exact result depends on the planet, its dignity and conjunction/aspects on it. So, we can’t cover everything here.


Generic Effect of Venus retrograde in Capricorn and then in Sagittarius – Capricorn is the sign of Authority and Recognition. Sagittarius is sign of Knowledge and Higher Education. So, Venus retrograde in Capricorn may make us reflect back on our authority and recognition in life or career. Then if person feels that he is not getting proper authority in life then with Venus going back in Sagittarius can make person think back if he should get some further education which may be helpful in gaining the authority.


A more evolved person during this transit can get tired with rat race of authority and recognition in life and can seek some peace or convenience in matters of religion, philosophy, literature and religious pursuits or through finding a Guru or a Teacher.



Now, the main course.

Predictions from Ascendant Sign will show what will actually happen and predictions from Moon Sign will show what our mind desires and how mind will react to such events?
