Venus went into Virgo at 1:26 am this morning, Saturday Aug 6 AEST where it will reside until August 30. Here’sy take on how it may express when in that sign.
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 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!
And some quotes from Sun sign Virgo writer D.H. Lawrence to evoke the eroticism of this placement
“The wood was silent, still and secret in the evening drizzle of rain, full of the mystery of eggs and half-open buds, half-unsheathed flowers. In the dimness of it all trees glistened naked and dark as if they had unclothed themselves, and the green things on earth seemed to hum with greenness.”
“She was like a forest, like the dark interlacing of the oak-wood, humming inaudibly with myriad unfolding buds. Meanwhile the birds of desire were asleep in the vast interlaced intricacy of her body.”
“Today she could almost feel it in her own body, the huge heave of the sap in the massive trees, upwards, up, up to the bud-tips, there to push into little flamey oak-leaves, bronze as blood.”
