Venus in Virgo: The Gift of Delightful Sensual Pleasures

Venus: Virgo

When Venus leaves flamboyant Leo on August 21 and moves into virginal Virgo, you might expect the showbizzy, glamorous vibe to drop off – and indeed it does. Surprisingly, however, when Venus transits Virgo, astrology suggests that sensuality increases and there’s really a rather romantic and sentimental air to this planetary shift.

Virgo is an Earth Sign after all, and therefore deeply connected to sensuality and earthy pleasures. Although this complex zodiac sign gets its fair share of mean press, it really doesn’t deserve its reputation for prissiness. The planet Venus will be in Virgo until September 14, and during these four weeks we can expect to enjoy plenty of loving interludes and perhaps even a few kinky moments!

This Venus transit does bring out your critical side, Aries. Where normally you would be content to shrug over a lover's annoying habits, now you may try to change them.

Venus in Virgo for a Scorpio (Scorpio dates: October 23 – November 21)

Venus in Virgo for a Sagittarius (Sagittarius dates: November 22 – December 20)

This Venus transit can be difficult for you.

Your challenge, Sagittarius, is to ditch this nonsense and to value the person for who they are – not how much they earn or what they look like.

Venus in Virgo for a Capricorn (Capricorn dates: December 21 – January 19)

If you can be consciously kind, then this transit can be very warm and satisfying.
