Venus in Virgo ~ July 10 to August 6, 2010

Venus von PigalleVirgo-Suns and Virgo-risings, celebrate. Venus, the planet of love joins Mars and Saturn in the sign of the Virgin on July 10, just one day before the Eclipsed New Moon in Cancer.

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 can be a bit obsessive about hygiene.

In Leo, Venus is bold, expressive and takes charge. In Virgo, Venus takes on a more receptive role, is modest and full of that wholesome "goodness" :-) At best, Venus in Virgo is thoughtful, caring, accommodating and reliable. At worst, overly critical, discriminating and anxious.

While Venus transits 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 a well thought outspending plan to lessen stress levels.

On the day Venus begins her transit in Virgo, she will quickly oppose (need balance) Chiron-rx and quincunx (need adjustment) Uranus-rx while the Cancer-Sun and Virgo-Mars are locked in a sextile (opportunity offered). A busy first day in Virgo for Venus. Expect the unexpected with Uranus involved. Deal with problems instead of escaping with what might provide immediate satisfaction, like shopping. There's an opportunity now to formulate unique solutions (Uranus) to whatever predicament you find yourself in (Chiron). With Sun and Mars beautifully aligned, we can successfully accomplish the tasks laid before us. For those who are naturally clumsy (like me :), pay extra attention to where you are going or what you are doing, lest you may acquire extra bruises.

Venus enters Virgo on July 10 at 7:32 a.m. EST, where she remains until August 6. While in Virgo, she will make alignments with the following celestial bodies (all dates reflect North America Eastern time zone; give +/-2 days for life span of influence):

  • July 10 ~ Venus quincunx Uranus-rx and oppose Chiron-rx (in Pisces). covered above
  • July 11 ~ New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Cancer at 3:40 p.m. EST
  • July 13 ~ Venus quincunx Jupiter and trine Pluto-rx. Intensity within relationships. Too "much"-ness. Easy to overdo anything, whether it's fun and happiness or worry and fear. Adjust attitude to reflect what's desired.
  • August 4 ~ Venus quincunx Neptune-rx. The more you analyze a situation, the less you logically understand it. Make an adjustment on your approach. Consider listening to intuition and see where that leads you. Also adding to the energies today is the still lingering tension between Jupiter square Pluto that began July 24th.
  • August 6 ~ Venus quincunx Chiron-rx (in Aquarius). Ouch! Whether it's an existing hurt or someone/something causing you pain/sorrow now, it's best not to dwell or let it fester. Either approach your oppressor and deal with it or accept the situation as it is and let it go. Be aware of others around you and take this opportunity to be of help to them. Taking the focus off your situation and selflessly servicing another is also another positive way to make use of this energy. Energies may be reminiscent or linked to July 10 period when Venus in Virgo last quincunx Chiron, who was in Pisces then. If so, find a resolution for it this time around.

What significance do planets, signs, and houses have in astrology? Planets have the function, the job to do. The style/manner they will use get that job done is defined by the zodiac sign they occupy. Where in our life the 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.
