Venus enters Virgo

Venus enters Virgo

Venus, the Goddess of Love enters Virgo.

While Venus in Virgo is not as prudish as she might at first appear, she is certainly not gushy. But her emotional display is more controlled, shall we say. She would never want to make a display of herself- and thus keeps her emotions under tight control, especially in public. This is why she is sometimes seen as ‘a little distant’, or ‘lukewarm’.

The truth is, Venus in Virgo is fiercely independent and self-sufficient. She doesn’t need anyone in order to feel complete, and she rather does things herself than having to rely on someone else. Chances are, whatever it is that needs doing, she is probably better at it anyway, especially when it comes to any kind of DIY jobs or organization and planning.

Venus in Virgo is meticulous and highly detail-orientated and a superb organizer. She loves arts and crafts, gardening and nature in general, and is devoted to her plants and her pets – and to other people’s children. She is often found in the charts of people who are working in the healing professions.

Venus in Virgo – time for self-care!

When Venus transits through Virgo, it is a good time to devote some time to self-care, especially in the form of nature time. It doesn’t matter whether that time is spent gardening or going for long walks to take in the fall colors, to forest bathing, or to doing yoga or some other kind of exercise – it is all good and part of her agenda of taking care of the body and mind. Or she might feel inclined to try out a new diet.

Don’t be so hard on yourself- or others!

Venus in Virgo is a perfectionist and she gets really irritated when things are off-center, in the wrong place, untidy, or for any other reason don not meet her approval. And since she measures other people’s performances by her own yardstick, she is pretty hard to please.

However, at times, even she has a hard time living up to her own expectations and when that happens, she is just as harsh on herself as she is with others. A little bit more self-acceptance would help her quite a bit, not only to be less hard on herself but also to be less uptight and judgmental with others. If she could just accept that nobody is perfect – not even Venus in Virgo, it could help her to become less uptight and reduce her stress and anxiety levels, as well as her fear of criticism.

Where is Virgo in your horoscope? Check to see how this transit might affect you.

Self-Presentation, Persona (1. House)

When Venus passes through a Virgo first house she may be more self-conscious than at other times and thus feel an increased need for self-grooming.  First impressions count! Increased self-awareness usually goes hand-in-hand with noticing in others the little niggly things one does not like about oneself.  Thus, it is a good time to practice being a bit less critical, both of oneself and of those one meets. Acceptance opens the heart!

Money, Values (2. House)

Venus in the 2. House loves shopping – but in Virgo – not so much. Waste not, want not, is her motto and she loves shopping at secondhand stores. Not only because she is thrifty, but also because it serves a good cause. She is just as likely to take things to charity shops in an effort to declutter the house. 

Friends and Kin, Mental Processing (3. House)

When Venus passes through the 3. House, it is a good opportunity to practice mindfulness -especially with regard to becoming more tolerant. Accept the fact that no-one is perfect and don’t waste your time fussing over petty things that ultimately are not important.

Home and Family (4. House)

When Venus passes through a Virgo 4. House, it heralds a good time for doing some maintenance work around the house and garden. Surely, it’s time to clean up the yard, winterize the garden, get organized for the cold season ahead – things will be different this year! Might as well plan ahead and make sure the pantry is well stocked.

Creativity, Children (5. House)

Venus moving through a Virgo 5. House is a great time to get creative with some DIY or crafts project – and get the kids to join in. Not quite so ideal for romantic encounters. 

Health, Work, Service (6. House)

Venus in Virgo in the 6. House can get quite anxious. Too many things to keep track of, plus a super high standard of not just wanting to get things done, but to get them done perfectly. That is a heavy load to carry and when times are busy, it can produce a lot of stress. It is a good idea to practice becoming aware of one’s own boundaries and limitations, and, to learn to say ‘no’.

Partnership, Relationship (7. House)

A Virgo 7. House is not the most romantic. But, a Venus transit through this house may still indicate a more sociable time. Try not to look for perfection. Perfection may be an aspiration, but it does not exist in the real world. Learn to accept people as they are.

Shared Assets, Inner Resources (8. House)

The 8. House is the house of inner resources and shared assets. Virgo here is tremendously resourceful. This Venus transit can teach you that the greatest asset you have is your self-value. Venus passing through knows how to turn everything into a personal resource. 

Travel, Study (9. House)

Venus in the 9. House likes to travel, but in Virgo, she is quite fussy as to where to stay and what to eat. Under the current circumstances, she might also feel anxious about possible exposure to germs, so arm-chair travel could be more appealing. Normally, her first choice would be a yoga retreat or spa holiday, or a rustic DIY hide-away.

Career, Status (10. House)

A visit from Venus in the 10. House is always nice. It’s great for marketing and the subtle art of persuasion. Venus is good at anticipating other people’s needs and figuring out best to serve them. Focus on making things work for the client, (or the boss) – and you will get your way.

Community, In-Group (11. House)

A Venus transit through the 11. House could be a good transit to do some volunteering or community involved in some social project. Getting involved with the community is a great way to meet people and to help others.

Spirituality, Transcendence (12. House)

When Venus passes through the 12. House in Virgo is a good time for grounding oneself through ritual work. It’s in losing herself that she will find herself.

A long, long time ago, when I first set out on my path at the age of 17, I asked the heavens for guidance - which way should I turn?

These questions and the answers I found defined my path. I became an astrologer, life coach, and counselor, writer, thinker, and eco-therapist. It has been a long and...
