Hopefully you've enjoyed Venus' jaunt through Leo the last few weeks and got your socializing and shopping spree's out of the way! Not that we don't all need to throw caution to the wind at times! But now that she will be in Virgo from July 10th to August 6th, we will be taking note self-consciously and maybe approaching things a little more cautiously.
Venus shows us our material values, how we approach love, powers of attraction, the appreciation of others, socialization, and the manner in which you express affection. In Leo, she is dynamic and waiting for that Prince Charming to put her on a pedestal. With Venus in Virgo, we have more patience to see the diamond in the rough or at times can stir up negative aspects of being over critical or judgmental.
Virgo is fair and just. Give it to her straight! As Venus transits Virgo, we must remember this is a sign were it's in it's fall. This means that the planet is in the opposite sign that rules it! What happens when a planet is in it's fall is the energy is more easily weakened and can be affected negatively.
In terms of love, we may need to make sure old hurts do not resurface to cause more pain. We'll need to see things as they are and try not to make any excuses. Though at the same time, you'll need to make sure you don't mistake genuine thoughtfulness! When Venus moves into Libra, true appreciation will be realized.
Since Venus also rules our money and finances, giving a double take over your budget at this time also proves beneficial! We all enjoy buying things that aren't needed, but we also hate to be surprised when an unexpected expense shows up! This can be a time that we realize how we treat our finances is also tied in with how we value our own self-worth.
Now of course, we don't all have the same chart.. so Venus is going to affect us differently! I personally, had a rather busy month last month that included my solar return, Venus return, AND Mars return! As you can see, it's a pretty interesting Venus return!
Currently, Venus is now in my 1st house and about to conjunct my natal Mars. I'll need to make sure I keep a level head about any obstacles I perceive and try not to act in an aggressive or impatient manor! But I am starting to already feel the pull in an artistic way as well in putting more passion and expression in my work!
While Venus makes her way through Virgo we'll be blessed with doing away with the things that are no longer serving us well so that when she enters into Libra, we're rewarded for the "sacrifices" (or maybe it's more regaining our common sense!), we've made and come to a more balanced understanding of what we really appreciate in life!
