Venus is the planet of love, beauty and harmony. It governs our relationships (particularly our love life) and embodies harmony and cooperation in all its forms. Every year, Venus spends some time in each sign of the zodiac only once, spreading its message of beauty and love to all. As it moves into each new sign, that sign affects how Venus does its work in the world, which in turn affects us here on earth. By understanding what it means when Venus is in a particular sign, we can figure out how to harness its power and strengthen our friendships, romantic relationships and professional connections. Here’s what Venus in Virgo means for all of us.

The overview: Need to get your life back in check after Leo season? That’s just what Virgo is here for. Venus in Virgo brings a more serious vibe to all of your partnerships, and the ones that don’t live up to your highest standards can show themselves the door. Virgo is a perfectionist, and when it combines with the planet of love and beauty, it can be a tough time. We’re left to sort out their conflicting influences. That doesn’t mean your entire life is going to fall apart, it just means that you’ll come out of this period with a much clearer understanding of which relationships are worth your time and which can be left on read.
Love: Like we already said, Virgo is the perfectionist of the zodiac. This means that when Venus is in Virgo, it is about to bring some serious discipline to your love life. Now is the time to answer the hard questions, weighing the pros and cons and deciding whether or not to stay in a relationship based on objective analysis. Virgo is all facts and no feelings, which can be helpful when deciding to cut out that ex once and for all. Single people will see their standards go sky high this season, so anyone who makes it out of this trial by fire alive is probably a keeper.
Career and finances: Splurge too much when Venus was in Leo? Practical Virgo is here to clean that right up. Now is a great time to trim the fat in your budget and streamline processes at work as Virgo’s razor-sharp perception helps to reveal things for what they really are. Virgo’s love language is acts of service, so don’t be surprised if you start showing your boss you care by staying late, coming in early and really going that extra mile while on the job. Your coworkers will thank you.
Mood: Venus in Virgo is a time for clearing out the cobwebs. This often manifests as a metaphorical cleansing of your relationships, but you may find yourself feeling the urge to take out the literal trash as well. Throwing out old makeup, putting together a bag (or five) of donations and doing a full deep clean of your apartment are all standard Venus in Virgo behaviors, which makes sense since Virgo is basically the Marie Kondo of the zodiac.
