“No one can make you inferior without your consent.” -Eleanor Roosevelt, Venus in Virgo

“I wouldn’t do nudity in films. For me, personally… To act with my clothes on is a performance; to act with my clothes off is a documentary.”- Julia Roberts, Venus in Virgo

“I gave my beauty and my youth to men. I am going to give my wisdom and experience to animals.” – Brigitte Bardot, Venus in Virgo

If you were born when Venus was in the constellation of Virgo, the Virgin…

No Venus sign likes to be taken for granted, yet because Virgo is so competent, she often takes on more than most and never asks for credit for it. Unlike the sign that comes before her, Leo, who carries her self as a grand event demanding notice, inwardly Venus in Virgo can feel unnoticed, like the grain of sand on an endless beach. Adding salt to the sand, she is often filled with self-doubt about her personal worth so she’s inclined to play down her efforts even more. This is a shame, because whereas other Venus signs are guilty of too much good marketing and not enough follow-through, Virgo’s attentiveness, precision and devotion to detail makes her good work the worthiest. Her good works are often more worthy of praise than any Leo (sorry Leo)!

A Venus in Virgo in love…

Yours is a practical earth Venus sign. In layman terms this means you prefer tangible efforts in love, over flaky promises, ‘maybe tomorrows’ and other fantastic notions. You admire people who have know-how and demonstrate strong ethics. You like to keep it real. Yours is the sign of wise discernment, and so when you’re feeling healthy and whole, you have unusually strong boundaries with others. This means you aren’t necessarily dependent on anyone- for you are the Virgin Goddess, whole and complete unto her self.

What this Venus sign needs to keep the love going…

You need to be appreciated, and how. How? Love is in the details. What may be superfluous information for other signs never goes unnoticed for you. So you need a soul mate who will notice the details, just like you do. From how you spend your day to day, to the new project you’ve picked up, or the joy in re-telling your partner a conversation you had with a friend – your Venus sign needs to share the mundane, ordinary hours of her day with someone who is genuinely interested. And in our fast-paced world competing for everyone’s attention – that’s a tall order. Your ideal partner will be ultra-attentive and sincerely interested in how you’re doing, thus someone with Sun, Rising, or Moon in Virgo would be a good match for you.

    How about men with Mars in Virgo? On or near my Venus? Seems to work very well for me!

  2. Jessica

    Mimi, In synastry between two people, a man’s mars on a woman’s venus is one hot combination. Major sexual and erotic chemistry. But I don’t have to tell you that!

  3. Stephanie

    ^^^^ How do I find some of that? Universe, are you listening? Please? 😉

  4. Kaul

    The picture, though! So male-oriented, making her look dumb, vixenish, over made-up…. and OF COURSE, “beautiful” by the definition of our current shallow society. Why? Why? Why?

    Whoa! I mean, WHOA!!! I read your post with interest thinking that the description of Venus in Virgo seemed to accurately, very accurately, describe me. Then I looked up my Venus sign. You guessed. It. Venus in Virgo. I have to sit down now.
