Things to Know About Venus in Virgo

by Rebecca Brents


  Astrology in Action  

From July 2002*

Venus went into Virgo this morning -- which may help shift the focus of the problems I've just described away from matters of affronted pride and onto the picky details of criticism and fault-finding. It may not be much help objectively ... but it can make the conflict more petty and less ridiculous. So do keep telling yourself the worst of this only lasts about 10 days at the most.

When Venus is in Virgo, people tend to be rational, discriminating, and practical in their relationships. This is not exactly the stuff of moonlight and roses . . . and so in matters of the heart, Virgo energy has a distinctly "unromantic" reputation.

People emphasize qualities such as being versatile, efficient, industrious, meticulous, and helpful. They want to be "of service" in their personal relationships, and will emphasize "doing a good job" in the chores, favors, and "work" they do for others. This is a preferred strategy for attracting the love and appreciation they want from others -- for now..

When Venus is in Virgo, people may be looking to "earn" or "deserve" love. Thus there is a meticulous, analytical, "fussy," quality to the way they go about getting attention. They may also use money (or value possessions) in ways that are serviceable, efficient, pragmatic, and sensible.

They may also pay unusual attention to details, and value "the little things" that make life more comfortable and pleasant. Again, it's not the stuff of great romance, but Venus in Virgo shows love . . . by doing the kind of work that really doesn't get noticed - until it doesn't get done.

Under stress, efforts to be loving and helpful may quickly become "smothering." Attentive service . . . turns to "hovering," "fretting," and being too "picky." Efforts to improve or serve loved ones may turn into complaining, fault-finding, and criticism. Relationships get into trouble because the partners are high-strung, impatient, superficial, finicky, and nagging with each other. The emphasis on "tending to details" now generates fights over "stupid little things."

Venus in General -- Your Inner Selves of Resource Management and Relationships ---> Support comes in many forms -- According to dime-store astrology ... the kind most people know from the little booklets they buy on newstands ... Venus in Astrology rules the two alluring topics of money and love. Like Mercury, Venus rules two Zodiac signs -- Taurus and Libra, and there is, indeed, a connection here between Venus ... money ... and love.

What Does Venus Represent in Your Natal Chart? -- What is it ... and why is it important? ---> Pink is a Venus color. -- Named for the goddess of love -- Venus, modestly shrouded in clouds when photographed, is named for the mythological goddess of love. It is often seen as the evening star -- so bright and shimmering some say it gets mistaken for a UFO. Maybe. Maybe not.

Venus Retrograde -- Realigning Your Values and Assets ---> Reassessing things of value ... -- Venus represents your important relationships, your important values, and the way you handle the things you value, especially material resources like money and possessions you need to support yourself.

Your Venus Energy -- So much more than love and money ---> Named for the goddess of love -- Venus the planet, and therefore Venus in Astrology, is named for the Roman goddess of love. That's the short definition of what she symbolizes, and the minute people hear that, their ears perk up and they want to know more, more, more. Her Greek counterpart was Aphrodite, but that's not the "more" people want to hear. Like all short-and-simple answers to complex questions though, this one is misleading and woefully incomplete.
