In an astrological chart, the planet Venus is associated with how a person expresses their self in their relationships- especially in love, attraction and marriage. It describes how beauty is appreciated and interpreted by the person and also how they relate to others. The sign of the Venus is often the same as the Sun since they can never be more than forty five degrees from each other. In the cases when the signs are identical, the behavior the person has towards people in general translates into their romantic life. If the signs are different, there is a disparity between how they treat people in general and how they treat people they are romantically involved with.
People who are born with their Venus in Capricorn will have a serious, cautions and prideful take on relationships. Timid and reserved in emotional expressions, their feelings are very strong internally though it can be hard to see from the outside. They have such a tight control of these emotions that they are extremely unlikely to publicly show any strong feelings in a grand display. Not only does that open them up to being hurt, it draws undue attention to them. This stems from a fear of loneliness and rejection that leaves them insecure with romantic endeavors. They repress all of that vulnerability so that they won't get hurt. If they were to get emotionally wounded, they wouldn't know how to express that outwardly, either. It is something of a vicious cycle.
There is a desire for this person to have status and prestige in their career. Because they are so focused on their work, office romances are common. Coworkers are often the only people they ever see. But they will be careful that such a relationship doesn't have an air of impropriety around it. Appearances are very important. Sometimes those with their Venus in Capricorn only embark on a romantic relationship because they know that partnerships are what people are supposed to do. They are people that believe in following traditions, after all. If the ideal partner hasn't been found, a less than ideal one will do. It is more about basic compatibility than a deep emotional connection for these people. Emotions will be present regardless, but under the surface where they can't really disturb anyone.
The partner they do choose will need to be an asset in that quest for status and prestige. The person with their Venus in Capricorn will be loyal, steadfast and dependable. Open displays of emotion and romanticism are not their cup of tea. They will express their affections and feelings through practical means. If a partner wants someone that will always be on time, help pay the bills and keep a clean house- this is the ideal candidate. If a partner wants a love sonnet composed in their honor or a midnight serenade, they should probably look somewhere else. In the long run (and these people are likely to make lifelong commitments) practicality has more use than blindly romantic gestures.
