Venus in Virgo

The love planet goes to work on relationships

Love planet Venus moves into the practical sign of Virgo on Sept. 5, 2014, significantly changing the tone of romance. We'll move away from the playful Leo energy we've seen recently as Venus now picks up her relationship tools and goes to work on the nuts and bolts of partnership in analytical Virgo. 

This is a time to bring a more discriminating eye to social interactions; a period that's good for refining our moves and cleaning up our acts. Being choosy about who we're with and what we need is at the top of the personal to-do list, even if emotional filters reduce intensity and make the game of love more serious.

Venus is about love and relationships, while Virgo deals with life's more practical matters. So, superifically, this can be interpreted as a period in which passion may give way to the mundane affairs of daily life. However, Virgo's traditionally chaste image is not nearly so virginal as one might expect. It is, after all, an earth sign that appreciates the healthy functions of the human body, including sexuality.

A more balanced view is that Venus in Virgo is a time when pleasure is derived by understanding the fine details of life, be they related to love or work. An appreciation for refinement in the arts, food, nature and people is more likely during this period. This can help further the development of skills and techniques in all areas of creative expression.

In personal relationships Venus in Virgo can correspond with excess criticism. The idea is to take the sharpened perceptions of the moment and apply with a constructive, rather than destructive, attitude. In this way so-called "faults" are not reasons to tear down a person, but to clarify the issues that need attention and adjustment. This positive approach can make this a time in which relationships grow through greater awareness of what makes them tick and, thus, help to iron out the kinks. Passion flows more freely when obstacles are removed. Work makes way for love.

That handy expert in life's little refinements, Martha Stewart, was born with Venus in Virgo, as was fellow foodie Julia Child. Tennis champions Martina Navratilova, Jimmy Connors and Arthur Ashe, and the great conqueror of more than basketball, Wilt Chamberlain, also have this in their birth charts.

Hollywood couple Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas share Venus in Virgo, along with singers Chrissie Hynde, Joni Mitchell and Linda Ronstadt. Ms. Perfect Julie Andrews is a different kind of Venus in Virgo singer, as is Luciano Pavarotti. Penny Marshall, Carrie Fisher, Catherine Deneuve, Robert DeNiro, Robert Redford and Chevy Chase also belong to this group.

Conservatives Jesse Helms, Jerry Falwell and Casper Weinberger represent one end of the poltical spectrum, while George McGovern and William Kunstler come from the other. Ex-football coach Jimmy Johnson is a perfectly coiffed example of Venus in Virgo precision, but revolutionary rocker John Lennon reminds us that these symbols can stretch to include less conventional forms of personal expression.

Hi James, you're right that it's all about individuality! Every sign has stereotypical traits, of course, but you have to look at your entire birth chart and ALL the planets to get an accurate picture of a personality. Have you looked at your chart? :)

I'm so surprised about your comments in reference to Virgo ! You are way, way off on Virgos regardless of your experience . I'm am and always have been quite the opposite of what was said . You have most likely met the worst of the bunch and it also still has to do with a PERSON INDIVIDUALLY !

Virgos are generally great people, and often more intelligent than some of the other signs. (No offense intended) They usually they don't make such an expanse of grammatical errors as evidenced in, "can't recognise none'. Venus in the first house, well let me see.. that's too funny.
