I guess I am on a roll ragging on Venus’. I just did a number on Scorpio and now it is time for Virgo. Venus in Virgo is in it’s Fall. I don’t know if a Detriment or a Fall Position is worse. You will have to write and tell me your experiences, as I have no planets in the Detriment, and one in the Fall( Mars). At any rate, it is time to pick apart Virgo, as he is wont to do to others(*snigger* ) Venus is a yin planet. Yin is receptive. Venus does not like too much intensity. Venus likes to look pretty and have the men flock a la Scarlett O’Hara. Venus does not like to be bothered with ALL the details. Hence, when we consider Virgo, we have a detail oriented( i.e. anal), perfection seeking sign. Virgo may be laudatory in an accountant. You want the same of your surgeon. However, for your lover, you want him to ignore the broccoli in your teeth and the extra pound from that delicious piece of chocolate cheesecake you wolfed down. Hence, if you have a Venus in Virgo lover, he wants perfection and you can’t measure up. Can you? NO. Can anyone? NO.
What is a woman to do? Well, one must understand the nature of Venus in Virgo. One must know that the person does not try to be too picky. He is not trying to hurt you( in most cases). He thinks in terms of perfection. The chart is what it is, for all of us. We, each, have good and bad. Venus in Virgo falls under the latter. Lets take a look at how Venus in Virgo might play out, in real life. You meet a gorgeous charming man. Maybe, he is an expert seducer like Mars in Scorpio. Maybe, he is sexy, calm and cool like a Saggi Sun. Maybe, he is gorgeous and tender, like a Cancer Asc. Maybe, he makes a home made dinner for you and you are starting to feel he may be “the one”. All may be well and good until he starts questioning you about your accomplishments. Oh, you only graduated cum laude, not magna? You ignore it, until he comments on your appearance. Maybe, you should lose a little weight around the middle. You wonder if you have won the grand prize or the booby prize. That is Venus in Virgo and it won’t change. Can you live with it and know that you are good enough, without being perfect? Consider this before you become Mrs Venus in Virgo because he comes, as is( as do we all)
These are wise words from BB, one of my most beloved readers.
Virgo can be picky and judgmental of others, but it is often pickiest and most judgmental about itself. Virgo does not put itself on a pedestal and expect other people to worship it, the way that Leo might; Virgo is aware of its own flaws and shortcomings, maybe painfully so. If you feel like a Virgo person is putting you through the wringer, picking on your faults, remember that Virgo has probably wrung itself out even worse.
