Why Venus is in Fall in Virgo
It is important to know that the planet Venus is actually in its fall when located in the sign of Virgo. Certain planetary placements offer the most exalted expression of a particular planet’s energy. In the case of Venus, Pisces provides the ultimate expression of Venusian energy. This is because Pisces is connected to unconditional love. Given that Virgo is Pisces’ opposite on the astrological axis, Virgo is considered in its fall as it is the sign when Venus functions at its least. While Venus in Pisces focuses on loving others unconditionally despite their flaws, Venus in Virgo actually focuses on the flaws in an attempt to fix an individual. This focus on fixing others and requires the ability to view the other in a critical manner. Thus, Venus in Virgo does often seek out flaws in their partners not in an attempt to be mean but with the intention of assisting the partner with self-improvement. Venus in Virgo seeks improvement within itself as well as within their partners which is why this energy notices the imperfections…so they can be fixed.
The issue with this is that when Venus in Virgo energy is not operating at its most efficient it can be very picky, highly critical, and what some would consider an unrelenting nag. The desire for perfection can lead Venus in Virgo to highlight every tiny detail about others to the point that it makes the other feel insecure. While Venus in Virgo sincerely wants their love interests to be a better version of themselves, for some, the constant highlighting of imperfections is off-putting and in some cases, annoying. This is particularly the case if the love interest feels that Venus in Virgo has their own imperfections that they need to be work on.
Making the Most of the Venus in Virgo Transit
The best way to take advantage of Venus in Virgo energy constructively in love, romance, and finances is through a practical, orderly approach. When dealing with relationships, it is important to remember that everyone is a work in progress. No one is perfect including…Venus in Virgo. Under this energy, there is a desire to help people be the best that they can possibly be, and this does often involve pointing out imperfections that can be improved upon. It is important to note that while we may want others to be better, our partners have to desire self-improvement for themselves. Our lovers are not our personal “fixer-uppers.” Instead, Venus in Virgo energy can be channeled in a manner that allows us to efficiently be of service to those that we care deeply about by helping them improve themselves in the manner in which they would like…if so desired. By doing so, the aim for perfection that is associated with Venus in Virgo is channeled in a manner where being of service uplifts our partners without the energy of constant criticism. And, if Venus in Virgo discovers that partners are not up to par, they can use their stellar discernment to simply move on reserving themselves for themselves until an appropriate partner of choice is encountered.
