Venus in Virgo

By

What You're Like...:

If your Venus is in Virgo, you're unassuming, reserved and a loyal friend or partner. You may not show a lot of emotion outwardly, but are sensitive to what others think. This doesn't keep you from being critical of those you care about, always trying to help them better themselves. You're discriminating, and might blow little things out of proportion. Once committed, you're the ideal "helpmate," since you tune into creating daily harmony.

Quality and Element:

In Love and Romance:

You're attracted to people who are clean, and don't have a lot of nasty habits. Getting into a car with a floorboard full of trash can spoil your mood, even as the date is just beginning. You appreciate punctuality, and someone that has a wholesome quality. You prefer to slowly build mutual respect, than to fan the flames of passion. Sometimes you're detached and hard to reach at an emotional level. Your tendency to criticize can be wicked, if not balanced with ample affection. In the bedroom, you can be endearingly modest, but are responsive to touch, and over time, will reveal more layers of the sensual self.

Friendship Style:

You like to be needed and feel useful in a friendship, and if it gets out of hand, you can start to feel like the unpaid intern. You're observant of the nuances of a person -- their likes and dislikes -- and this makes you able to offer helpful insights that really do make a difference to people. You've got a quiet style, an analytical mind, and are picky about who you hang around with. You thrive with friends that appreciate your thoughtful care, and who won't load you down with emotional drama. You're big on healthy living, and might find lots of friends through yoga classes and such.

Creative Expression:

The first thing that comes to mind is writing, and this can take many forms. You could be drawn to the literary world, but just as easily use this gift as a public servant (of which there are many Venus in Virgos).

The Big Attraction:

You're someone with a lot of integrity, and that is appealing to the right person. There's no game playing here, just a steady nature that likes to be "of service" to those they love. You're self-contained, and a bit of a loner, and this is intriguing. There's a sense of mystery about you, since you're protective of your privacy. You likely get high marks for your skill in the bedroom, even as you're emotionally distant at times. You're trustworthy, and a right match for someone that understands your remote, yet physically sensitive demeanor.

Winning Your Heart:

You want to feel appreciated, and get turned off if your efforts go unnoticed. You'll be attracted to someone that always takes care with their appearance. This means the shirt is pressed, there are no obvious stains -- extra points if you smell like soap. Good manners and a healthy lifestyle are a plus, too. You're good at showing people how to be more efficient. A compatible partner is someone that doesn't mind being tweaked, and values you for your helpful hints, critiques and analysis of situations.
