4 Tips for Using Virgo In Venus Energy
Remember, Virgo is an Earth sign and the seductive prowess of Virgo is very much based on earthy, tangible things.
We see it in the Tarot’s Knight of Pentacles, a very Virgo individual indeed! Unlike his romantic counterpart, the Knight of Cups, who woos you with love songs and a rose in his mouth, or the fiery, dashing Knight of Wands who sweeps you off your feet and drives you off into the sunset.
The Knight of Pentacles’ idea of romantic wooing is to fix your washing machine and buy you a new fleece to keep you warm during winter months.
So, when romantic Venus enters Virgo, it’s the practical things that count!
1. Come Clean
Virgo loves to clean and organize, so take this opportunity to add some nice touches to your home to boost the romantic vibes.
Maybe add some new curtains, pillow covers, or candles to set the mood. Change out harsh lighting with soft bulbs that create a romantic ambiance, and make the place smell good so you actually want to spend time there. This will help override your need to get on your partner’s case about not being perfectly clean or bug them about unfinished home projects.
Take the initiative to make your home fun by adding positive energy to the space.
This transit is all about coming clean and it has the potential to truly heal injuries that have previously existed in our relationships, showing us the way to open communication and forgiveness. These energies need to unfold organically, so avoid the temptation to force a connection.
Allow your relationships to take their natural courses. Even though it can be hard, sometimes we need to move on from connections that no longer serve us.
2. Take Things Slow
Virgo is known as the meticulously organized sign, and one that never rushes into anything. As the Mutable Earth sign, and symbolized by the Hermit in the Tarot, Virgo thinks everything over about a thousand times before it actually happens.
Venus in Virgo wants you to take a moment to breathe and enjoy the ride.
This energy slows Venus down considerably, as she is usually all about the magic and sparkle when it comes to love. Now, however, it’s time to come back down to earth and focus on what’s tangible and achievable.
Reflect on what is best for your highest self at all times. Disengage from your fears, insecurities, and worries about your imperfections. Just be real.
Slow down on the flattery compliments, up the ante on authentic appreciation, and give as good as you want to get in love. Virgo is so very helpful, all the time. When you help your partner, they remember why they fell in love with you in the first place, and sometimes just appreciating is helpful enough.
3. Make Lists & Plan
In order to channel the detailed-oriented nature of Virgo, it’s a perfect time to make an extensive list of all the little and big things that you adore about your partner. Look through a lens of love, not scrutiny.
To channel your need to plan your entire life (which is such a Virgo tendency), you can harness that energy into coming up with some fun day trips, date ideas, and even intricate recipes to make together at home.
This will override the Virgo anxiety about an uncertain future which, if left untamed could make you overreact if you don’t know where the relationship is going or when it will move into something more serious. Instead of forcing your partner into changes you want, focus on planning fun things that will bring positive energy into your relationship right now.
4. Be Genuine
Virgo is the Mutable Earth sign and about as real as it gets. Virgo can spot a fake a million miles away. Many times in love, and certainly when Venus is in the flattery-loving Leo, flattery gets you everywhere.
This is the opposite for when Venus is in Virgo. Fakes and insincerity are going to be real turnoffs to all zodiac signs when Venus is in Virgo. Be real.
Virgo energy often makes us get nit-picky. Virgos don’t criticize because they’re being mean, but often because Virgo people have high standards. They aren’t saying to you, “I think you suck.” They are saying, “You rock, and because I care, I think you can be even better than the amazing you you are.”
Say things that you like and appreciate about your partner.
Try to let go of any judgmental tendencies right now. We all make mistakes and we are flawed. We can’t exactly expect others to accept our flaws if we refuse to do the same for our loved ones, so try opening your heart and mind to the good and bad aspects of your friends’, family, and loved ones’ personalities.
