Love takes a sensible turn when Venus moves into the earthy sign of Virgo! Because Venus represents our relationships and Virgo is the analytical sign that focuses on life's more practical matters, this transit gives us the opportunity to work harder on our partnerships. This a time of getting down to the nitty-gritty so we can figure out what is working in our relationships -- and what isn't.
Virgo likes to trade in the passion normally associated with Venus to focus on the finer details in life. Virgo is the librarian with a ruler-straight back, tight bun in her hair, and studious eyes that is busy perfecting her craft. Virgo doesn't have time or patience for all of Venus' flights of fancy. No, she has work to do!
When Venus is in Virgo
When Venus is in Virgo, we're being urged to become more reserved and discriminating when it comes to matters of the heart. You may begin to feel that if you can't have a perfect love, you'd rather not have any love at all. For those that are coupled, Venus in Virgo is a cosmic opportunity to take a step back and determine if we're getting what we deserve out of our relationships. If single, this is a time when we'll see the red flags that we might normally miss with any love interests. In fact, this transit may have us more in love with work and service than love itself.
The downside to this time of going over our relationships with a fine-tooth comb is that we may end up nitpicking our partners more than usual, because we find it difficult to let the little things go. It's possible to keep excess criticism under control by having constructive dialogue rather than just pointing out each and every fault we see. This is a great time to make necessary adjustments in our relationships so that we move forward more positively. In fact, your relationship may end up being better off because of Venus in Virgo!
All of this relationship analysis doesn't sound very sexy, but despite how it may seem, Venus in Virgo can be passionate. That's because Virgo is an Earth sign, and it's all about appreciating food, art, nature, and people. In fact, we appreciate the best of those things because Venus is in Virgo -- and that includes what goes on between the sheets. However, we'll all be a little bit more conservative when Venus in Virgo, so don't expect any quick flings during this transit.
If you were born with Venus in Virgo
As someone with their Venus in Virgo, you are shy and cautious in love, and it's not easy for you to open your heart and let people in. When you do, you'll make yourself as indispensable as possible in order to protect your heart. Grand displays of emotion aren't really your thing, and you'd much rather show your affection by performing small acts of service that mean a lot to your partner: taking out the garbage, rubbing their feet, doing the grocery shopping, or trying to iron out every wrinkle in their life.
When it comes to love, Venus in Virgo is the most discerning transit of all! You'd rather remain alone then settle for someone who doesn't fit into your idea of the perfect mate -- and more often than not, this checklist is miles long. When you finally do allow love in, you'll spend tons of time and energy trying to fix whatever you think isn't quite right about the object of your affection. While your mate may view this as you merely griping, you don't ever criticize for criticizing's sake. You're simply trying to help make your relationship as perfect as possible.
The analytical lens through which you look at the people and world around you is the same one you view yourself with. You easily find flaws with yourself than nobody else would notice in your quest to become the most perfect version of yourself. Because the image you project to the world is incredibly important to you, you are concerned with matters of health, fitness, personal hygiene, and grooming. Others might find you to be a bit self-effacing and compulsive, but you simply expect the best in life -- even when it comes to yourself.
