This is even worse than Mercury Retrograde. In case you are unaware, when Venus is Retrograde (especially in Capricorn), it makes all things associated with Venus (love, beauty, aesthetics) more difficult. So this time period would be a bad time to start a new relationship, try a new hairdo or change up your wardrobe. It will negatively affect relationships and expression of affection most of all. Old lovers may come back into your life, old or new lovers could come and make your current relationship/love life complicated, all to help you re-assess who and what you value.
So, basically, it’s totally shit and if your love life is bleak, it will probably get rained on a little harder, and this transition will probably be depressing as fk and will wreak havoc on your love life.
