On July 21st, 2021, Venus enters earthy and practical Virgo, which takes us down a notch from the wild passions of Leo and provides us a little more clear-thinking in the realm of romance.
Leo brings out our wild side, no doubt, and the conflicts and harsh words of the last month have probably sent most of us into overload, requiring plenty of wind-down time as we lick our wounds and recover from the intensity of the last few weeks.
However, with the planet of love now moving into Virgo, we have the chance to view things from a more rational perspective, which can be extremely helpful when it comes to matters of the heart.

About Venus in Virgo
Venus is in fall in Virgo. It is the opposite of its sign of exaltation, which is Pisces.
In other words, Venus struggles to express herself freely in Virgo.
Unlike in Pisces, which encompasses the energy of magical, fairytale love, Virgo is about the real, the tangible, the here-and-now, and above all, all that is practical and realistic.
It’s a bit like hoping for your other half to shower you with roses, chocolates, and passionate lovemaking on Valentine’s Day, only to find the surprise waiting for you is that they fixed your boiler instead.
The Benefits of Venus in Virgo
Of course, that’s not to say Venus in Virgo is dull!
Think of the Knight of Pentacles in the Tarot. This is your quintessential Venus in Virgo chap. He may come across as a little boring at times, but there is no one more loyal and steadfast you will meet.
In fact, this is some of the best energy for finding practical solutions.
After the wild frenzy of Venus in Leo, Venus in Virgo brings us the opportunity to sit down with a hot drink and say, “Right, how can we work through this?”
It’s that moment of calm after the storm has passed.
Make Venus Energy Work For You
It’s time to get practical when Venus enters Virgo. So how can you make this work for you?
1. Time to Talk
As the energy of Venus in Virgo is all about finding practical resolutions, this is a time to lay everything out on the table and have calm, reasoned discussion in your relationships.
It is also a time to mend broken bridges in all of your relationships, romantic or otherwise.
Everyone is not so fiery now, and they are more willing to compromise. An open, honest conversation, text, email, or letter has the potential to result in solutions that work for all.
2. Take Things Slow
Virgo is known as the meticulously organized sign and one that never rushes into anything.
This energy slows Venus down considerably, as she is usually all about the magic and sparkle when it comes to love. 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.
3. Make Lists & Plan
It’s a perfect time to make an extensive list of all the little and big things 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 thing to do), you can harness that energy into coming up with some fun day trips, date ideas, and even exciting 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.
If single, think of practical ways you can forge connections with potential new love interests. It may be especially more difficult in this time of the pandemic, but there are ways – online connections, web forums, and joining internet groups with others that share things in common with you is a good start.
