VENUS IN VIRGO/22 JUL – 16 AUG
Venus represents beauty, harmony, love, attraction, balance and relationship functions. The attraction aspect can mean attracting financial benefits along with beneficial people. Virgo is a mutable earth sign. Mutable signs are all about change, adjustments and tying up loose ends. Virgo is concerned with completing and perfecting the physical plane. With regard to “perfecting the physical plane”, Venus in Virgo often wants and expects perfection in relationships. It can become so focused on what would make things perfect that it can lose sight of and fail to appreciate the ways things are. This can make relationships challenging. While Venus transits Virgo we need to be aware that we may start finding fault with current or potential romantic partners or even with our friendships. And/or we can feel that we are not perfect enough. Let it go. I’m a believer in “wabi sabi”, not perfect but just fine. Don’t let the perfect get in the way of the good. Virgo is also the sign of care with purpose. Let the purpose include smelling the roses while pulling out the weeds.
