Love energy shifts as Venus moves into Virgo on September 5th! This sign rules the details, so Venus in Virgo can be a time to pay closer attention to your loved ones and your relationships, noticing the little things and seeing their true value.
Venus normally spends about a month in a zodiac sign but will move through Virgo a little quicker than that. Venus is progressing at a good pace now, and this period is a quick burst of practical energy for relationships and connections.
Venus has been in Leo, and this pairing is light, carefree, and fun-loving. Venus in Leo wants to enjoy love and relationships and not dwell on anything.
With Venus in Virgo, it’s time to get to work in love. This allows you to notice the details you might otherwise overlook, and have gratitude for the small ways the people you love have a positive impact on your life.
This transit of Venus in Virgo may be a little tricky though, because Mercury retrograde begins on September 9th, just five days after Venus moves into Virgo. While the retrograde starts in Libra, it will move to Virgo on September 23rd.
The retrograde means we’re going to be reflecting quite a bit on our relationships, and people from the past – and may pick apart relationships a little too much. We may be stressed out by others, and need to go easy on both them and ourselves.
Venus tries to bring pleasant energy to the wonky retrograde, and we can work with some of the beneficial traits of Virgo. It’s just going to take extra work!
On the upside, Mercury retrograde is excellent for Twin Flame unions. This is because Mercury is dual in nature, and because retrogrades bring things back (rule reunification). Plus, retrogrades, have superb spiritual, karmic energy. It runs strong!
