Venus enters Virgo on September 19th, putting money, relationships, self-esteem and values under the microscope. Is it good enough? When Virgo is involved, it can always be better.
Therefore, this transit is about looking very, very closely at what you love, what you want and what you have. Quality and refinement are your goals. You're getting real and getting precise about Venus themes. If it's not working, you can find a way to fix it, or accept that it's broken and move on.
Flaws will become very apparent - your flaws and their flaws. You can get stuck in the "never good enough" rut and pick yourself or a relationship apart. Distorted Virgo stalls at this point. A better use of this energy would be to identify what's fixable. Maybe your self-care/money management/relationship standards are due for an upgrade. And part of this process involves identifying what's not fixable. You can't polish your partner into something they're not. Being indispensable to someone in hopes that they'll wake up and love you never works.
The beauty of Venus in Virgo is not the humble servant stuff. Yes, she expresses love through service. But beyond that, she has exacting standards that ensure you're attracting or creating the best possible life for yourself. Assuming you're not distracted by the Lower Virgo vibe of guilt, self-punishment or slavery. What you're aiming for is a clean, no-nonsense approach that leaves zero room for undermining partnerships, cheaters, sloppy habits and deluded self-indulgence. BTW, the virginal thing is less about no sex and more about strength through self-containment and selectiveness.
If you want to relax, find yourself another transit. Venus in Virgo means you work for what you want. This ensures you get the absolute best. Aren't you worth it?
