Capricorn Forecast for 2023: Love & Romance
While starting the year with Venus, the planet of love in Capricorn is not unusual, unlike last year when she didn't leave until March, when she leaves on 3rd January she won't be back until 2024. Venus will spend less than 72 hours in your sign this year but importantly, they are also the first hours of a brand new year, with the planet of love able to have her say from the start. As well as getting the year off to a romantically charged start, Venus is on a mission to update your romantic and relationship desires and expectations for the coming year and this year, she is asking you to aim high and especially on the romantic front. To begin with, it is business as usual for this time of year on both fronts, which means no planetary activity in your relationship sector and Uranus, in retrograde motion in your romantic sector.
It is not until Uranus turns direct on 23rd January that the focus will fully shift from the past to the future, though having the North Node here since January 2022 has allowed you to keep sight of where you are going. It was the North Node that turned an ordinary Full Moon into a total lunar eclipse in November 2022. Things might get off to a slow start on the romantic front and especially in terms of turning Venus' desires into reality, but your romantic sector is the dark horse of 2023. What could be some of the most romantically charged weeks of 2023 will begin with Venus' return to your romantic sector on 17th March, with the planet of love giving the spirit of romance a serious boost until she leaves on 11th April. It is while Venus is here that Mercury will return for what should be a two week visit on 4th April but instead, he won't leave until 12th June and this will prove to be a game changer.
It is less that Mercury will still be here, giving your heart a voice and putting heart and mind on the same page when the Sun moves through from 20th April to 21st May and more that he will still be here when Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion returns to begin your luckiest year for love in over a decade on 17th May, something that won't run its course until 26th May 2024. Meanwhile, while this is happening your relationships will also get a boost when Mars returns for his first visit to your relationship sector in two years from 26th March to 21st May. With Venus here from 8th May to 6th June, this will give the planets of love and passion time to work their magic, without the Sun's reality checks. It is after they both leave that the Sun will move through from 22nd June to 23rd July and Mercury, the planet of communication from 27th July to 11th July, all during the early weeks of your luckiest year for love in over a decade.
