Venus in Virgo May Have You Feeling Cranky

Executive Contributor | Rev Joanne Angel BarryColon | Personal Development

After many months in the sign of Leo, Venus enters the sign of Virgo on October 8 and will remain there until November 8, 2023. Known for its grounded Earth sign energy, Virgo has us getting ready to organize, reboot schedules, and put things into perspective. It also helps us problem-solve, gain clarity, and even be more connected to our bodies, helping us understand what our physical symptoms are telling us. 

This transit will impact the Mutable signs: Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces. With Saturn and Neptune in Pisces, those of us with these sun signs will spend time reflecting on what direction to take.

This transit is filled with love, patience, self-care, clarity, and healing on a soul level, but at the same time, Venus doesn’t necessarily like being in Virgo. Therefore, you may find it takes more effort to be in joy and see sunshine and rainbows during this period, but making the effort will be worth your while.

Take time to honor the moments when you are feeling cranky, crabby, moody, frustrated, or agitated. Honoring these emotions and feelings may help you gain insight into what Saturn and Neptune are helping you navigate. After all, Saturn can help you reset your karmic cycle, set boundaries, and create a new foundation, while Neptune can help you recharge your higher consciousness, higher wisdom, and intuition.

Venus is the ruler of Taurus and Libra, so during this transit many may get an opportunity to experience more harmony, love, balance, and healing in their relationships on an even deeper level due to Jupiter and Uranus being in retrograde in Taurus, which makes this a time for expansions and awakenings.

While Venus was entering Virgo, Pluto in Capricorn went direct (after 5 months of being retrograde) within hours of the 10/10 Portal (endings and beginnings). When one door closes another door opens, they say, but not always immediately. Sometimes there is a pause between doors closing and opening and this pause can be used as a time to review and reconsider.  Is it possible the Universe could be testing you to see if you can stay in gratitude for all you have, to demonstrate that you are ready to receive more?

Although the Mutable signs will feel this the most, all signs will benefit from the impact of Venus entering Virgo. Take a look at your Sun, Moon, and Ascending signs and any planet that is associated with Taurus, Gemini, Virgo, Libra, Sagittarius, or Pisces, and then take a look at the houses associated with these signs (2nd, 3rd, 6th, 7th, 9th and 12th)

Finally, take a look below to read about your Sun, Moon, and Ascending signs to help you navigate during Venus in Virgo’s Transit.

AriesAs the Sun is in your opposite sign you may be inspired to reorganize your space and make room to meditate, workout, and nourish your soul.

TaurusChange is in the air and you’re ready to reboot your schedule and let go of things that weigh you down. You may even walk away from your job and pursue a different career.

Gemini: You’re usually a social butterfly and being around too many people right now may be making you a little cranky. Being home with family or inviting a few friends over would serve you better.

CancerThis is a perfect time to stay in and create something magical or catch up with a close friend or loved one.

Leo: You’re feeling on fire and ready to go out and party. This is a great time to meet someone new personally or professionally.

Virgo: Even though Venus is not happy in your sign, you always find a way to see things from the brighter side. This is a perfect time to meet new people and find a new job. Career opportunities are blooming for you.

Libra: Anything is possible during your birthday month! There is so much energy this month. Make this moment count!

Scorpio: You may start to notice your community changing and your schedule changing. A major transformation is happening. People, places, and things fade away.

SagittariusNow that Pluto has gone direct you may be traveling more for business and new career opportunities may unfold.

CapricornYou may be traveling most of October and November personally and professionally, you may also be sharing your wisdom at a speaking event.

AquariusVenus in Virgo may have you overthinking. Take time to quiet down and let go of anything you cannot control. This is a perfect time to schedule a massage, reiki, or acupuncture to help you release old habits.

PiscesAlthough Venus is not comfortable in Virgo, Venus is at home in Pisces. This is a great time to do things that bring more harmony into your life and let go of things that throw you off balance. Remember to play as much as much as you help others.
