(TIP to help you learn astrology: get your notebook out and write down the symbols for each Venus sign - here's a suggestion, write each symbol for each sign of the 12 signs for Venus with a few keywords that will help you recall what this Venus sign is all about! Use the words and symbol together at first, later on, you can use just the symbol and it will tell the story to your inner mind!)

VENUS is an ancient Goddess. She represents the force of attraction in nature. All relationships depend on her. Every person, place, or thing you are attracted to and LOVE is seen through the lens of your Venus sign.

She has been with us consciously for a very long time.

VENUS OF WILLENDORF about 28,000 to 25,000 BC.

Venus of Catal Huyuk 6700 BC

An example of how they lived in Catal Huyuk. These were NOT barbarians. In Astrological Processional Time (that's the 25,000-year cycle of the precession of the equinoxes), this culture emerged at the time of TAURUS, the Bull! So this approximately 2400-year period was a Venus time as Venus is the ruler of Taurus and what can be said of Taurus can often be said of Venus. The beauty, grace, and harmony that Venus in Taurus seeks is reflected in the culture of our ancestors of 8700 years ago.

Astrology is WAY older than we can imagine. Isn't this exciting to find our ancestors, in their homes, NOT WORSHIPPING IDOLS, but rather using the symbols of the great zodiac to comprehend WHERE they are in this mysterious universe? The animal, the bull, and the qualities it represented, and where it was located by constellation were sacred to the people of Catal Huyuk and their time period because it gave them a way in which to relate to their HUMAN PLACE on this planet. By this time, we had gained a SOUL, and it wanted and needed to begin to comprehend itself and its relationship to the cosmos!

Venus as Innana in ancient Sumeria. From 4000 to 3100 BC Venus/Inanna was seen as a creative, pro-creative, and nourishing goddess, essential to life itself. She was a force of attraction to be reconned with.

ISHTAR at the gates of Babylon (Ishtar came after Inanna).

Old Babylonian cuneiform texts dated the knowledge of the first Ishtar Gates around 1600 BCE.

Mycenae Venuses 1600 to 1100 BC. Aren't these gorgeous? this is one of my favorite periods of women in history because they seem so happy, lively, and full of spunk....that was BEFORE patriarchy knocked it out of the feminine....well, that's another article.

Aphrodite 200 AD

Botticelli's Venus was born full-grown from the foam of the ocean.

mid-1480 AD, a Renaissance Venus.

The ocean can also be seen as the 'ocean of stars' in our Milky Way from which Venus came forth.

By this time, patriarchy had become dominant and the divine feminine, as you can see, has to cover up her reproductive area. VENUS, however, cannot be stopped, she has always been with us as Beauty, Love, and the drawing together of two forces that combine to create a third NEW FORM.

I use the word, emanations, as meaning that each of the 12 possible Venus signs is FLOWING FORTH FROM THE GODDESS. These "Emanations"  are the ways in which the Great Goddess transmits her various modes, energies, elements, and forms of expression so that as we inhabit this human body we embody and enliven a particular archetype of Venus. 

I will cover the VENUS signs, Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, and Virgo in this article. If one of these is NOT yours, then it may be a lover's, a child's, your best friend's, one of your parents, or someone famous you wish to know about.



Find the VENUS symbol or glyph in your chart. If the symbol  is next to it, then your Venus is in Aries. It will look like this:

 5° 49′ There will be some numbers with degree °   -    minute ′ symbols next to the numbers. These numbers I've used won't be yours, they are just an example. You won't have to worry about them now because as beginners the most important thing to learn is what SIGN your VENUS is in at your birth.

Venus is about love and when she is placed in Aries, she must learn how to tend to herself first. VENUS IN ARIES IS LEARNING TO LOVE HERSELF! Because you are not shy you must learn to make good boundaries for yourself as a woman in a feminine body. You have a natural outgoingness in social gatherings that can be quite vivifying for others!



You add sparkle to life wherever you go! You can have a cheerful attitude that others love especially if your VENUS is well aspected by the Moon, Mercury, or Jupiter.

Because she is direct in expressing herself Aries Venus could pioneer new fashions! This could be a lot of fun even if you come in combat gear or camouflage pants! Possibly you don’t care about the beauty aspect or the fashion statement. You are more into the comfort and utilitarian use of clothing. But because you do seem to stand out in a crowd, you may want to consider expressing yourself through your style of clothing and how you want to affect others.

You have a creative ability that could come out where the use of tools is important or where a coarser approach is OK such as in building a structure or putting together a project that requires some force or direction or something heavy to lift or move about.

A modern-day Venus as Robin Hood's Maid Marion.

Does anyone recognize this Venus in Aries? It's Sharon Russell, an artist, and my sister! Sharon is also a Taurus Sun, she loves all things Venus. Beauty is important to her! You can find her art here: ART FOR THE SOUL. She has painted all twelve of the zodiac signs for us as feminine images! Don't miss her art page, you may want to get one of her images to remind you of your Venus sign!

In our women's circle, Sharon keeps the group lively, makes us laugh, creates beautiful altars, and brings us all together in her lovely home. She has that Aries twinkle in her eye!

Venus in Aries wants to relate to others; in fact, you have a great desire to do so. Sometimes, Venus in this placement seeks to get along with others so much that you make compromises that take away your own personal rights. Or perhaps in your efforts to avoid controversy you give in your point of view, which may be valid and vital.

Sandra Day O'Connor was the first woman to serve on US Supreme Court. 

Venus in Aries can have a pioneering spirit. She likes to be first! And she CAN stand her ground when she follows her passion.

Learn to share your true self with others but don’t manipulate with coerciveness. Use your deeper truths, because you probably won't really feel like fighting.

Marilyn Monroe was not afraid to flout her sexiness, but her Venus in Aries was young and naive. Because her Venus was conjunct Chiron, the challenging effects of Chiron showed a wound to her sexuality and ability to create a lasting relationship with a significant other that could not heal, at least as far as she had gone with her life. She had Venus trine to Neptune in LEO in her first house which shows a kind of magical draw she had over others. Very fiery, showy, and glamorous indeed, Neptune can get us into trouble if we are not self-aware.

In love, Venus in Aries might be a little awkward. Aries tends to rush in where others fear to tread! Then asks questions later…oops… when it may be a little late! Slow it waaaaay down. Get to know him or her first. Take long walks, or jog together. Listen and share.

Remember, your VENUS is in (on) FIRE! You could even be a warrior of the spirit!

You want your way in love because Aries is all about being first or meeting her own needs. This isn’t bad, but in relationships, you will benefit by becoming conscious of your Venusian energy which is strong and potent. 

As you mature, you take more time to get to know others by developing good listening skills and becoming willing to compromise by knowing what is important for your personal happiness and well-being and what you can compromise on that will enable your relationships to be a blending of both yours and the energy and needs of the other.

Find forms of expression that are creative or project-oriented. You have a lot of great spirited energy but you need to bounce off of those who also sense the vitality in the world around them. Sluggards will bore you.



Find the VENUS glyph in your chart. If the symbol  is next to it, then your Venus is in Taurus. It will look like this:

 5° 49′ There will be some numbers with degree °   -    minute ′ symbols next to the numbers. These numbers I've used won't be yours, they are just an example. You won't have to worry about them now because as beginners the most important thing to learn is what SIGN your VENUS is in. Later on, you'll learn why degrees are important.

You love with constancy and your affections, once committed to, will be deep and lasting. It is important for you to have security and stability in love otherwise you do not feel complete in life.

One of the LESSONS for a VENUS in Taurus IS LEARNING about making money or finding security in love. Through these elements, you LEARN about your TRUE and LASTING VALUES.

"Beauty's only skin deep, yea, yea, yea! Beauty's only skin deep, oh, yea!"

You are probably attracted to beauty in the form or face of another, but try to remember that it takes time to reveal what is true and beautiful within the other person.

You have a great love of comfort. You want your home and surroundings to be luxurious or beautiful and this takes money that you are willing to earn to get what you want for your domestic security. Art will appeal to you and you will have an artist's eye in what you choose to have around you. You have artistic skills yourself.

Your VENUS is in an EARTH sign if it is in TAURUS.

You may feel a close kinship with the earth. Trees, flowers, and natural elements in your environment give you a feeling of solace and peace.

You have an innate sense of material objects and you take good care of them. You may make purchases of lasting value that are luxurious or gain value over time. Painters, sculptures, hairstylists, and artists often have their Venus in Taurus.

     Dianna, Princess of Wales, had her Venus in Taurus.

Your physical body carries a strong sexual charge. You will attract the opposite sex, sometimes like a magnet.

Juliette Binoche, the actress, has her Venus in Taurus.

Venus in Taurus can be beautiful. Take special care to know this so that another person's attraction TO YOU does not determine whether or not YOU are attracted to them. You can take your time to decide if this is the person you want in your life over the long haul. You are deeply sensual and passionate.

Ella Fitzgerald was known as 'the first lady of song' in the 1940s. Her Venus was conjunct her Sun exactly making her a VENUS IN THE UNDERWORLD AT BIRTH. She was in an initiatory stage of the Venus Cycle giving her great power to move forward in her singing career her entire life. In addition to Venus with her Sun (exactly) she had Jupiter and Mercury in Taurus adding to the strength and power of full voice jazz and song vocalist.

Venus in Taurus often has a beautiful or melodic voice. You may be a conversationalist and can draw others in through what and how you express yourself. Talent is the keyword for Venus in Taurus and you may be surprised at how many avenues of expression are open to you once you open to them.

"You have some kind of INNATE TALENT if you were born with Venus in Taurus,

discover what that is!"

Money and material possessions are important to you but if your Venus has difficult aspects from other planets these things may be denied you until you learn the lesson of the afflicting planet. For example, if you had a square to Saturn, you have to work hard to get money or to keep it. Sometimes Saturn can make you feel lonely when it is square or in opposition to Venus. On the other hand, if Saturn is in a happy trine to Venus you will work hard, make money, and know how to spend it. If this trine comes from your 7th house of partners, your partner could be the source of your financial security and means.

If you get carried away with too much of something, that is Venus in Taurus trying to surround herself with things that will make her feel secure. This will have its limits. I know a few women collectors with their Venus in Taurus here. It can get a little over the top to have 200 vases or so many images of the Goddess around one's home, that no one else has room to put anything. If you are over-collecting, look within to see what kind of security you are needing or lacking or perhaps you lacked in childhood. 

Anne Frank

"It's really a wonder that I haven't dropped all my ideals, because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet I keep them because in spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart."

                                                                                                        from The Diary of  Anne Frank

Amazing Anne Frank was a young Jewish girl when she was taken to a concentration camp after 2 years of hiding during WWII Germany. Even with the great burden she carried and the abuses she tolerated, she kept her vision of a loving world. She cherished love as an ideal. Her Venus was in her 10th house so she would become a public figure but not by intention ---- and , oh, if only she could have fulfilled her potential with Venus in Taurus square to her Leo moon conjunct Neptune, she might have become a visionary artist or writer! Well, now that I think of it, she was just that, a visionary writer through the diary she has left us! Thank you Anne for your spirit of LOVE and HOPE!



Find the VENUS glyph in your chart. If the symbol  is next to it, then your Venus is in Gemini. It will look like this:

 5° 49′ There will be some numbers with degree °   -    minute ′ symbols next to the numbers. These numbers I've used won't be yours, they are just an example. You won't have to worry about them now because as beginners the most important thing to learn is what SIGN your VENUS is in. Later on, you'll learn why degrees are important.

 Your Venus is in an AIR sign when it is in Gemini.

With your Venus in Gemini, you want to find someone you can communicate and be social with, someone who will travel around with you. You are curious about so many different types of people and this may make you disinclined to settle down in one permanent romantic relationship.

You will probably stay friends with those you have had attachments with in the past. You are willing to spend time traveling in pursuit of pleasure or social gatherings. You will love to read and have a wonderful library filled with poetic expressions of how you live your life.

You don’t like coarse behavior of any kind. You do like your brothers and sisters and want to stay in contact with them throughout your life.

Gemini - from flower to flower they light, flitting around and flirting around...oh, but they are so deLIGHTful!

"The bright elusive butterfly of love can apply to Venus in Gemini."

You may need to deepen your values concerning love and marriage if you want a lasting relationship. Otherwise, this position of Venus is like a butterfly in romance. If you keep many different types of friendships you will be happier and your curiosity about people will find satisfaction. Then you can find that particular someone whom you can settle down with.

Also, try not to drop someone because they have offended you either through inconsiderate behavior or inconsistency. This may be a shadow side of yourself and you need to see this so that you can mature into the wonderful person that you are! By developing patience with others you deepen and become an even more interesting person to others than you already are!

As a Venus in Gemini, you can find time for yourself by curling up with a good book and taking a little time out from your busy social and out-n-about lifestyle!

You have the creative ability in writing, speaking, or artistic pursuits that involve the use of words, paper, and media of all types.

Mary Wollstonecraft was a famous, eighteenth-century British writer who is best known for her work, ‘A Vindication of the Rights of Women’. You may recognize her as the mother of Mary Shelley who wrote "Frankenstein".

You will need many different kinds of people in your life or you will get bored. Try not to put all your expectations on just one guy. Let him or her be, as you explore what you need to explore. Allow for him to be a homebody if he wants to. Go out and get with your girlfriends when you need change. Or find that new book you’ve been wanting to read or shop until you drop.

Versatile, clever, talented Sandra Bullock has her Venus in Gemini. Gemini gives her the ability to act in a variety of different roles. 

Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis had a successful career as a book editor and publisher in New York City after her days in the White House.

Take a short trip uptown and treat yourself to lunch with an interesting friend - one who can keep up with you. Laugh or cry together, but don’t stay isolated if you are a Venus in Gemini because it will take you places in your mind that you do not need to go. Your self-image could be affected by who you are hanging around with or what you are studying or reading so use your discrimination in both these areas.

You are playful, and love conversation and variety but are not big on intense encounters with others.

Frida Kahlo

Frida Kahlo became an artist through her long experience with an injury to her hip. She was studying to be a doctor when a truck smashed into the bus she was on and her body was pierced by a large sharp piece of heavy metal. When she was in the hospital her parents brought her a mirror and paintbrushes with lots of paper.  She began to paint herself! Some of her art had a caricature-like quality as a Gemini might enjoy drawing. Gemini has a great talent for imitating. 

"The Wounded Deer" By Frida Kahlo

She often drew how she felt about who she had become through the pain of her illness.

Frida was very social and loved to cook and give parties for her many friends. Her love life was fraught with an eternal love whom she was never quite secure with.

You are rather a complex character, maybe a little hard to know even. You are a highly intellectual observer, seeing the world through a rational lens. Sometimes you avoid getting too emotionally involved. It might be hard for someone else to know that you really care, so keep that in mind if you are looking for true and deep friendships and romance.


VENUS SYMBOL - she looks like a mirror with a handle, so very Venusy!


Find the VENUS glyph  in your chart. If the symbol  is next to it, then your Venus is in CANCER. It will look like this:

 5° 49′  There will be some numbers with degree °   -    minute ′ symbols next to the numbers. These numbers I've used won't be yours, they are just an example. You won't have to worry about them now because as beginners the most important thing to learn is what SIGN your VENUS is in. Later on, you'll learn why the degrees are important.

If your VENUS is in CANCER you are deeply sensitive in love. Your romantic feelings are strong but they can be easily hurt. You may hide this vulnerability behind a dignified exterior. You cherish your home, your mother, and the land you walk upon. You want those who love you to demonstrate their affections so that you will feel secure and loved.

Your home could be a place of warm and wonderful social activity where cherished friends and family members gather. You make others feel welcome just to be around you.

You are particularly fond of family life. You may research your family lineage or be the one in the family to get everyone together.

You want to care for and protect others.

Barack Obama has his Venus in Cancer.

My son has his Venus in Cancer and he's a great cook! So, if you are a woman, who works, works, works, find a partner with Venus in Cancer who cooks, cooks, cooks!

You may even be a domestic diva with Venus in Cancer. Cooking may appeal to you and if you haven’t tried it yet, then do. When you have someone you want to cook for, it will help you discover the creative way that you can nurture through food and sociability. You may replace love with food so as you grow older there could be a tendency to gain weight. Other elements in your chart will point to your ability to take it off if you have been eating as a replacement for love. Actually, we can all do this, not just Venus in Cancer.....but food is soooo comforting to you because the Moon is the ruler of your Venus sign and as such is seeking COMFORT most of the time.

Cancer Venuses usually love babies! You have fond childhood memories that are important to you. You are probably affectionate toward your children and love and nourish them a great deal. Sometimes this placement of Venus makes you clingy to those you love, if you become estranged from your children it will be good to give them some space but eventually, you need to acknowledge how much you care and love them.

Romance is VITAL to your relationships – you need to be with sensitive others who can appreciate your deep and tender caring. You are a rare and wonderfully kind and caring person with charm and poise.



Judy Garland had those large Cancer Mooney eyes! Her charming sensitivity can be felt in the movie version of "Dorothy and the Wonderful Wizard of Oz".She had two children but became an alcoholic and could not mother her own children.  Her desire for personal freedom and tendency toward addiction came from her Sagittarius Moon (lots of fire) which overrode her sensitive Cancer side. She also had a difficult Uranus squared to her Venus which created lots of drama and a rupture in the family system. 

Cher Bono had those moon-like eyes also!

Helen Keller

Helen Keller became blind and deaf in her infancy. Her Venus in Cancer was conjunct with her Sun at birth. Here again, we have an underworld Venus and it was in her 8th house which can show 'struggles and darkness' along with great determination and willpower. 

Sometimes your Venus here in Cancer may sulk or feel emotionally unstable. This happens in your reaction to that which is coarse or has offended or hurt your feelings. Try to remember that we are all human and not to take another’s remarks or behavior too personally. When you are lonely or feeling bored you may need to get out of your home and into a social setting that is comfortable and will provide you with the kind of nurturing you may be needing!

Venus in Cancer is learning about the eternal qualities of the SOUL and how our Soul is our source for finding love and fulfillment that leads to a contented life.

You are capable of devotional love either to those in your family or to a beloved teacher or Great Mother figure. This devotion expands your heart and will leak over into your everyday relationships in a wonderful way adding extra warmth to the genuine person you already are!


Find the VENUS glyph  in your chart. If the symbol  is next to it, then your Venus is in LEO. It will look like this:

 5° 49′  There will be some numbers with degree °   -    minute ′ symbols next to the numbers. These numbers I've used won't be yours, they are just an example. You won't have to worry about them now because as beginners the most important thing to learn is what SIGN your VENUS is in. Later on, you'll learn why degrees are important.

Your Venus in LEO could excel in the arts or in design. You are highly creative and you have endless energy to express yourself through your creativity. You bring sunshine and new vitality into your artistic expression be it musical, painterly, poetic, or architectural, anything that you create will have a light-filled sense about it.

You love deeply and intensely. Your emotions and desires are passionate. You enjoy romance and romantic interludes. When you place your affections on someone you are ardent about them and become deeply committed to those you love.

You probably love to have fun so a good time socially is high on your priority list. You could make a great actress because of your natural dramatic flair. You are warm-hearted, outgoing, and affectionate. Your sunny nature makes you attractive to others. You will like the excitement and drama of love and being courted. You might even like to show off a little with your partner. And you do want to be appreciated.

You are concerned with your sexual performance but try to relax more into the love you feel rather than into how you perform. You are strongly loyal to those you love and will feel hurt or slighted if you are not given the attention you need or deserve.

You relate well to children and will be proud of your children. The child in you is strong even when you are mature and your playful nature can bring joy and lightness to others.

Your Venus is in a FIRE sign in LEO. This emphasizes your passion, your energy, your drive, and your will in love, in the performing arts, and in whatever work you do. 

Hildegard of Bingen had her VENUS IN LEO!

That might come as a surprise to you! But when I think of Hilderad I think of a woman on fire with creativity and true spirit!

Because a fiery Venus in Leo can be so consumed by passion, Hildegard was inclined to direct her heart's pursuits in a spiritual direction. She composed music often to her lyrics of devotion to both God and the Divine Feminine. Her Venus directed her passionate life and magnanimous giving, loving nature to others. Although she was often sick in body, her HEART always being consumed by the love of God and Sophia, the Divine Feminine, she found the Leonian energy to create her art through the channel of her spiritual Venus. 

Hildegard had a true marriage with the divine as she had her VENUS IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE SUN IN LEO! In astrology, this is the aspect of the soul mate or soul union! So in Hildegard's case, she had a marriage to the divine all her life.

(MUSIC)"Tears Shining Under the Moonlight"

Here is an example of Hildegard's musical composition. If you click on MUSIC, then come back to read the rest of this article you will hear a wonderful example of how Venus can express herself. It all depends on the inclinations of the Soul of the person.

I choose this music especially because I wish you to comprehend astrology from the level of all your senses....so whenever you click onto (MUSIC) you will get a piece of wonderful music or song that goes right along with what I am teaching. You can CLICK ONTO THE MUSIC (don't be afraid of your computer or table or cell phone.... just try it. You will be DeLIGHTed! I promise. .....and then you can come back to my website WHILE YOU LISTEN TO THE MUSIC!? You do this by looking to the top of your screen after you get the music on. You will see this web page and you can click back on it as the music continues!

Malala Yousafzai of Pakistan was shot by the Taliban on her way to school. She was devoted to getting an education and showed great bravery and courage when she was out of the hospital, she got right back on that bus and went to school. She was the youngest-ever Nobel Prize laureate. Leo Venus can have the courage of a lioness, this powerful fire sign wants to live her life according to her own agenda. She is proud and will not be dissuaded from her life and her life's purpose.

Coco Channel changed the world of fashion for women in the 50s and 60s. She never tired of her work. For those of us old enough to remember, she dressed Jackie Kennedy in those wonderful Chanel suits you see Coco in above! She was an endless font of energy and creativity! There is a lovely book about her with lots of photos and personal stories that make for a cozy evening: Coco Chanel: The Illustrated World of a Fashion Icon (Books)

The singer Madonna channeled her fiery energy into her body and movement. Well, Wow! There are many different versions of Venus in Leo but they all had great spirit and seem to enjoy themselves endlessly.

Mother Mary

I'm not sure I go along with this one, but an early Gregorian Calendar has Mother Mary born with her Sun and Venus in Leo, hmmm.....she does embody the life-giving energy and 'spirit at union with God' that a Sun/Venus in Leo could have. There are many ways you can express your life force with Venus in Leo.

The more conscious you are about how you channel or emanate yourself, the better you will be able to handle your relationships. You do need to know that your seeking of attention can irritate others at times! And sometimes it is just plain charming.

She is the harvest goddess, always at work and busy with her hands and healing powers..


Find the VENUS glyph  in your chart. If the symbol  is next to it, then your Venus is in VIRGO. It will look like this:


 5° 49′  There will be some numbers with degree °   -    minute ′ symbols next to the numbers. These numbers I've used won't be yours, they are just an example. You won't have to worry about them now because as beginners the most important thing to learn is what SIGN your VENUS is in. Later on, you'll learn why the degrees are important.

Your Venus in VIRGO usually loves their work, but if you don’t, it will be very important for you to find a field that brings you delight. Then you can excel in your profession and feel happy and useful at the same time. 

You bring an eye for both artistic expression and detail to whatever you do.

Precision is a quality of women who work with their hands, women with Venus in Virgo.

Your Venus in Virgo is an Earth sign. Perhaps you also like to grow things or tend a tidy garden! You can excel at crafts because your hands have a special kind of dexterity for putting small things together.

Venus in Virgo can overwork or they can suffer in their work unless they learn to make good boundaries on their time. Sometimes there is a hardship associated with their health or with working conditions if Venus in Virgo has difficult aspects. 

You may be shy or have feelings of social inferiority This can create feelings of loneliness or frustration. At these times you may retreat into your work or pursuits that take you away from people. Though this may work temporarily in the long run this is not good. Isolation can prevent you from meeting people who you could really enjoy and could help you out of your shell of shyness and social fears.

A true Venus in Virgo, Kamala Harris is not just a hard worker who pays great attention to the details of her job, she loves being of service to others.

Eleanor Roosevelt's Venus was a strong part of her fight for human rights. She was dedicated to serving the cause. She demonstrated restraint, modesty,  and a feeling of self-control pervaded her being.  It is not unusual for a Venus Virgo to feel quite strong within herself though outwardly she may show a shy or even cold exterior.

You have an inner sweetness under a possibly cold or harsh exterior and you may not be aware of this. You are sensitive and you may be hiding behind your display of coldness or too mental outlook. You have so much to offer by releasing the flow of affection toward others!

"Doctors, nurses, therapists, surgeons, healers and crafters....You have an ability to heal and to work or create with your hands with Venus in Virgo."

You are sympathetic and want to help the sick or defeated. You have a wonderful ability to nurture which could put you in a healing profession. As you learn to care about yourself, your body, your personal appearance, and your social life, all these elements of living can bring you out of yourself and into a more well-adjusted social and personal life. Virgo excels in the arts or in design. You are highly creative. You have the energy to express yourself through your creativity. When you are not expressing your creative side you may feel depressed or that you are working too hard or in too rugged of terrain. Your gentle, creative, and nurturing sides are parts of you that may need tending to.

Julia Child had her Venus in Virgo. Those pots lined up in a row are a dead giveaway.

Martha Stewart

Many famous cooks have their Venus in Virgo. Their attention to detail, precision at measurements, and desire to produce something that is useful or of service to others make them good cooks. Some like to take care of others in this way. 

You may be attracted to personal items that are of high quality and beautiful. Though you may work hard to acquire personal possessions or status, these are not substitutes for personal affection. As you mature you sense your needs for attention and affection and will find healthy ways of relating to others, ways that release your tendency to be perfectionistic or too critical of others.

Virgo Venuses must know when to stop and to stop seeking perfection if they want to survive. Orderliness and tidiness are great qualities, but in the extreme, they may cause anxiety. Depression can arise from never being able to attain their ideals for themselves. Sylvia Path, poet, novelist, and short-story writer, struggled with depression. Several Venus in Virgo women and men that I know well, find it helpful to consult with a therapist or good friend. Venus in Virgo is naturally talkative once you open a space for their feelings and stories.
