Venus, planet of love and money, enters Virgo on October 2nd and will be flirting its way through the earthy sign until October 27th. Normally, Venus in Virgo brings a practicality to how you spend your money and give affections to others.
However, this time around, Venus is getting messy due to the Grand Cross (a fraught aspect with two oppositions and two squares) with elusive Neptune (which is retrograde in Pisces) and the Nodes of Destiny (which are currently on the Gemini-Sagittarius axis). You can expect to feel confusion and disillusionment as you make ill-fated choices around your relationships and finances. You may even fall head over heels into the rapture, only to awaken with a love hangover or scandals when all is said and done.
Be careful with investments and don’t take other people’s words to heart. No matter how much you want to believe them, keep your eyes and ears open.
Below is your Venus in Virgo horoscope. Make sure to read your rising sign, too.
Taking a step back from work will prove beneficial for you. There is more to life than attaining professional gain and fame—a sentiment you are now learning. Lean into all parts of your life that you’ve neglected or haven’t given a lot of energy to now.
You’re a real charmer (which is what we love about you). Now you are in the mood to flirt all day and doodle hearts while sweet-talking your boo. Enjoy the tender energy that this transit offers you. After all, you deserve to feel butterflies and love all day long.
You don’t give your heart out easily, but you do trust without caution when it comes to love. Learning that you should not give your emotions to another without knowing all the deets of their situation is important. Being in the know will help you avoid drama down the road.
Using flowery words to express yourself will be beneficial to all of your relationships. You will be able to let others know how you feel all the time and be there for your friendships. This will also encourage you to see the good in those you care about (and vice versa).
Finances are more important than ever right now as your bank account is dwindling. Manifesting money is hard, though, especially when you compare yourself to others. Don’t take your situation for granted and lose sight of what is available to you. Appreciate all that you have, not what you don’t.
You would rather let life happen to you than take control of matters. Be mindful and aware that this will create issues for you, as you are not expressing your truest sentiments. Stop taking the backseat when it comes to your heart and finances. Boss up and be in charge.
Setting boundaries with your S.O. and your spending will prove to be challenging during these upcoming weeks. If you let yourself have a space for yourself where you can create limits with your boo and save money in your bank account, then you will be ahead of the game.
Your friendships are super important to you, and you put a lot of stock in them. Sometimes it can be hard to differentiate between their needs and yours. But it is important for you to figure this out. Finding your own voice will help you discover your own identity and achieve your goals.
Your career is picking up. The need to constantly be invested in your work is creating issues for your relationships and personal life. Turn off your phone and computer after business hours. This will help you to have downtime and spend your energy on other matters in your life.
It’s exciting to plan your great escape from the mundane every now and again, but you are finding that heading out on your next adventure is harder than you imagined. You don’t have to be globetrotting to have a wonderful time. Plan a day of exploring your local neighborhood.
Although it’s so unlike you to crave passion and drama when it comes to love, you’re finding that you want to be a part of an intense relationship—if only to feel the rush of emotion and know that your crush shares the same sentiments that you feel for them.
Relationships are more important than ever. You are very focused on making a situation work, even if you are having issues. Stop worrying about love. All of your romantic problems will be easy to overcome if you don’t make a mountain out of a molehill and go with the flow.
