What Venus in Virgo/the 6th House Reveals about Your Chart

Wanted: A pure heart and noble character. People born with Venus in  Virgo or the practical sixth house swoon for the spirit of selfless service.

Traits of Venus in Virgo

A discerning dater, Venus in Virgo would rather be single than waste time on someone whose values you don’t respect. Great hygiene and grooming are also a must! This Venus placement is wellness obsessed. You’re also a bit of a germaphobe, and you can be unforgiving of stray hairs, wrinkled fabrics and cheap colognes.

Venus in Virgo is discerning 

While you don’t mind helping your love interest with a self-improvement mission—in fact, some of you consider it your duty as a partner—a baseline of stability is a prerequisite for anyone hoping to win your heart for the long-term.

Along your romantic flight path you may fall for a few wounded birds, especially if their keen intellect appeals to your “sapiosexual” love of a beautiful mind. Alas, these romantic rescue missions can throw you off your game for months, even years! Once you recover, you’ll never go back; in fact, with the sign of the Virgin ruling your love zones, you can maintain long bouts of celibacy between partners. When you find someone who meets your standards, you’re a generous and sensual lover who intuitively understands the kinesthetic realm of touch and movement.  

Being fussed over is so NOT your thing—unless bae is bringing you chicken soup when you have the flu. You’d rather hold hands while you walk under the stars and talk about all the dreams you have for making the world a better place.

Personal style of Venus in Virgo

Expensive gifts won’t necessarily woo you, but you’ll go giddy for something thoughtfully chosen, like your favorite book in a leather-bound hardcover, or a consciously sourced treasure handmade by women in a developing country. Modest and private, you generally prefer a clean and comfortable indoor environment for doing the deed. Since Virgo is  an earth sign, making love in the great outdoors could also be your jam—as long as there’s a freshly-laundered (organic cotton) sheet to lay down on the ground.  

When it comes to decorating, you go for a Zen-like palette of whites, browns and earthy neutrals; your sartorial choices will reflect the same ethos. You keep your home orderly and may accessorize with natural objects like crystals and plants. Bookshelves are a must! Reading side-by-side in bed in the hush of comfortable silence might be your idea of foreplay. Venus is “in detriment” in Virgo, which is said to be its most challenging position. Love may not come easily to you, but when you yield to its lessons, you may wind up the wisest and most satisfied of all!
