Venus in Virgo Meaning: Love, Personality Traits & Significance

Venus is known as the planet of love, and its position in your natal chart can tell you a lot about your approach to love and relationships. It also relates to how you value things in the material world, and how you feel about your appearance.

If you are born under Venus in Virgo, you are very sensitive to the little things and understand their importance when it comes to love. You also tend to be constantly questioning and looking for reassurance that the love that you have in your life is real and true.

When it comes to the material world, you tend to be frugal, especially with yourself, and you don’t like waste on indulgence. You have a very good sense of yourself and how you look, and are very practical in your understanding of your strengths and flaws.

Celebrities born under Venus in Virgo include Mila Kunis, Demi Lovato, John Lennon, and Robert Redford.

Venus Transit & Retrograde Through Virgo

While the position of Venus in our natal chart affects us on an individual level, Venus’ continual transit through the signs impacts us all as it dictates the kind of “love energy that is in the air”.

When Venus transits through Virgo, we all tend to be a bit more sensitive to the little things. We appreciate more the small signs of affection that our partner gives us, but also notice the things that indicate all might not be well. At this time, we tend to want evidence of the affection of our partner.

Thankfully Venus does not retrograde through Virgo often, and will not do so again until the 22nd century. Considering its disruptive power over the heart, it is good that Venus only retrogrades every 18 months.

Whenever Venus retrogrades, we all tend to misstep when it comes to love. When this is combined with the energy of Virgo, we tend to enter into a hypercritical mode and can only see the flaws in our love lives.
