Venus in Virgo ~ Sep. 20 to Oct. 14, 2009

Venus by Selenys at selenys.deviantart.comThe planet of Love, in the sign of the Virgin, takes a more receptive role. In Leo, Venus is bold, expressive, and takes charge. In Virgo, Venus is modest and full of that wholesome "goodness" :-)

Venus represents love, money, what we value in life, and our self-worth. In love, Venus in Virgo is all about the little things, small gestures that speak volumes. In finances, Virgo-Venus is sensible and somewhat of a worrier. Virgo also values good health, healthy habits, and is hygienic.

At best, Virgo is caring, accommodating, and reliable. At worst, Virgo is overly critical, discriminating, and anxious.

While Venus is in Virgo, thoughtfulness shows your beloved the depth of your love; beginning an exercise regimen and/or healthier habits/lifestyle is ideal; and managing finances through careful budgeting cuts down stress level.

Venus enters Virgo on September 20 at 9:32 a.m. Eastern until October 14, 2009, and while in Virgo, she will make connections with the following celestial bodies on (all dates reflect Eastern time zone; give +/-2 days for life span of influence):
  • September 20 ~ Venus trine Pluto. Existing relationships may be examined now. In earth signs, issues regarding relationship stability and capacity for longevity may surface now. Earth signs are tactile signs. A simple touch might communicate what words can't. New relationships may become more intense, with added expectations. With Pluto involved, watch out for power play and/or obsessiveness. The opportunity for a transformation in love is possible now -- may it be in the deepening of bonds or in cutting ties.
  • October 4 ~ Venus quincunx Jupiter. Indulgence in fun and the more pleasurable things in life. Be careful not to be too wasteful. Watch overspending or impulsive behavior ... unless, of course, that is the goal for the day :-)
  • October 7 ~ Venus quincunx Chiron. Time for healing in love and finances. Face up to the realities and shortcomings in relationships and money matters. Is this really love? Is this relationship supportive or destructive? Is it a healthy balance of give and take? Need to rework the budget? Give up some fun stuff to make financial goals?
  • October 9 ~ Venus oppose Uranus and quincunx Neptune. Anything can happen and it probably will. Worth a mention ~ on this day, Mercury Re-enters Libra.
  • October 13 ~ Venus conjunct Saturn and sextile Mars. Heaviness. Pressure. Two steps forward, one step back. Feeling a little like every effort is blocked or whatever direction taken leads to a dead end. Saturn represents our realities and the restrictions imposed upon us. This time is better spent using Virgo's talent for meticulous planning and analytical diligence. Take what Saturn is presenting and pick it apart to find a way to best deal with it. Well-planned actions/decisions are what will produce intended results.

What significance do planets, signs, and houses have in astrology? Planets have the function, the job to do. The style/manner they will use to get that job done is defined by the zodiac sign they occupy. Where in our life this job gets done is determined by the house the planet occupies/transits. So, when Mars (aggression) is in Aries (bold), he is more assertive than when he is in Cancer (sensitive). When traveling through the 10th house (professional life), he may bring his confidence and motivation in matters relating to our career. While in the 11th house (friendships), we may be more inclined to having our social calendar packed with activities. Having the foresight for what may be coming up or receiving confirmation on what may be happening now are ways astrology can be beneficial ... as above, so below.
