Cupido in Capricorn 2023 - 2024
Cupido in Capricorn brings more maturity, discipline, and practicality to our crushes, so we're not quite so wild with them. Sagittarius is the anti-commitment sign, so Cupido in Sagittarius was great for fun crushes that wouldn't go anywhere. Capricorn, on the other hand, is super pro-commitment, so Cupido in Capricorn doesn't want us to be so wild with our crushes anymore. We may take them more seriously.
This might be a time where many people decide to take crushes to the next level instead of letting them be casual. What might've started as free and loose can become something more serious and committed.
This is actually even stronger with Pluto also in Capricorn with Cupido, and the two conjunct, or align, on January 4th 2024 at 29 degrees, which is the anaretic degree. The anaretic degree is the last degree of any Zodiac sign, and is supercharged energy. This comes just before Cupido exits Capricorn with Pluto on its way out too.
This can put those crushes to the test, and the ones that have already been committed can either experience a challenge to see how serious you are about it, or things can go to the next level. If you haven't taken it seriously yet, something can happen around this conjunction that forces you to make a final decision, to stay or go.
