The astrological interpretation of Venus in Virgo in the natal chart is often times less-than-positive. Authors talk about the individual being critical of their partners, nagging and cold. Some karmic astrologers even go so far as to say that Venus in Virgo is the sign of someone who has been less-than-loving in a past life (lives) and that debt is coming home now. Of course, when criticism comes into the mind, loving-kindness generally departs swiftly, this is fairly obvious. But how can we simply stop this deeply ingrained, crystal-clear yet critical gaze in its tracks?
With all this said however, what is guaranteed with Venus in Virgo? Will the individual put off marriage (due to their seeing imperfections in potential partners)?

I would argue that like astrology in general, where I practice frequency-based astrology, people with Venus in Virgo are quite unique – we cannot place them all in one basket and hope that our interpretation will work out for the majority of them. Frequency-based astrology says that we must determine the frequency of the individual (where they are spiritually, emotionally, maturity-wise, self-care wise, renunciation, etc) before we can paint an accurate picture of how their astrology chart reflects their lives.
I have found, at least here in the United States, that most of the time, Venus in Virgo is associated with a strong religious upbringing. This could be a strong Catholic influence or it might be a strict Protestant environment. However, this is not always the case. When religion plays a role, Venus in Virgo is often joined by other planets in Virgo (or a strong 6th house stellium for instance). If I see three or more planets in Virgo though, I am almost always rewarded with a surprised answer when I say, “So your family was quite religious, right?” Yep, usually the case.
Sometimes Venus in Virgo comes with a strong familial heritage – I have several clients who were raised in tightly-knit immigrant families here in the United States. In their culture of origin, there are a lot of “shoulds” about what a good girl does and does not do. In these cases, religion has less to do with the strict Virgoan perceptions. But the inner critic is there nonetheless.

I believe that most people have the resources internally to change their minds. Literally to transform their mental attitudes and patterns. Now, as you can probably surmise, this is not exactly easy to do, nor is it going to be a fast process.
However, life does this for the large majority of us. We put up enough resistance to necessary change that eventually we realize that the only thing causing us suffering is our resistance, and we begrudgingly shift our stance.
Likewise, people with Venus in Virgo can change their minds and melt any frozen tissue around their hearts, allowing in some openness, acceptance, and compassion – basically embracing the mystery which their Venus in Pisces cousins so easily put their faith in.

Keeping all of this in mind, two more things before we wrap up. First people with Venus in Virgo might be the late-comers to the relationship table as it were. These people might put off marriage or partnering for some time. Rarely – like Venus in Virgo in the 12th or 6th house rare – Venus in Virgo might prefer to be a recluse or live a hermit lifestyle. And even then it is not set in stone – look to the Moon’s Nodes for further information on this topic.
Second, it is possible for us to delve deeper below the conscious surface and to literally change our minds and our heats. See my previous posts about doing birth process work or Pre- and Perinatal Therapy or working with Double Binds. Once we start to ply apart the tangled web of inherited patterns and habits and assumptions from our ancestors (honoring them in the process), once we have the desire to heal our ancestral lineage and start working with a professional who has the skills to hold that type of container, then we can gain more equanimity or strengthen our loving-kindness and compassion to become a different person. I know it sounds kind of preposterous. But I have done it. Where I was fifteen years ago, and where I am today – people from my high school do not recognize me; it is literally a night and day change.
Working with legitimate heart teachers can change us for the better, and drastically change us. We can become more resilient, clearer, more articulate about our needs, etc. We can fully embrace our inheritance as human beings. 🙂
So if you have Venus in Virgo, don’t fret. Find an authentic spiritual teacher or a spiritual (religious) lineage that you resonate with and start doing some practice. Work to melt any icy areas around your heart. Forgive yourself, your parents, grieve anything that was left incomplete, etc. And if your karma (frequency) is positive enough, then you have nothing to worry about. The colder more critical side of Virgo may have transformed to come out through service and generosity and loving-kindness.
