Venus enters Virgo Sunday morning at 8:39 am, July 19, AEST, where it will reside until early morn on Aug 1st, when it retrogrades back into Leo where it will stay until until Oct 9, when it returns to Virgo. Here’s my take on how it may express in the sign Virgo.
Venus takes on a refined, sensuous quality in Virgo. Think the delicate fragrance of massage oil, incense, or an aroma-therapy bath, smooth unblemished skin, pristine breath, exquisite erotic touch, fresh clean sheets, hand-made beeswax candles, a healthy meal prepared with love, fine art books of classical nudes strategically placed by the bedside, fashionable apparel for every occasion, furnishings and coverings made from natural fabrics in subtle earthy tones, a temple cat, a feline creature of uncommon grace and beauty .. and you’ll get the idea.
In truth, Virgo Venus has many ideas about love and relating, one of which is that their ideal lover should have all of the above – even if they don’t themselves. What a pity their standards are so high that they tend to become anxious, tense, and sick with worry at their failure to meet those standards themselves. They need to embrace the fact that life is perfectly imperfect, that imperfections are part of the perfection of themselves, their lovers and – everything!
