Venus in Virgo: Get It Right

Venus in Virgo loves to get it right. Picky and demanding? Sure. But Venus in Virgo's power of discrimination only ensures that she gets the best out of life; whether that be in love, physical comfort, or whatever else the lady desires. While Venus is currently transiting Virgo (10/2-10/28), we will find that wherever the sign of The Virgin is housed in our charts, that side of our life will be up for scrutiny by our internal value system (that's Venus!). As it always goes with the planets, if it's broken either fix it (if it's worth it) or let it go entirely. The key with Virgo though is to not get so caught up on criticism/analysis that we over analyze ourselves into a dark, lonely corner. Let constructive criticism/resolution be our beacon. 

Due to this transit, Venus has temporarily set up camp in my first house (the part of me that the world sees) and while I've been getting compliments from strangers and friends alike, I can't help but to wonder if my hair, skin, clothing, etc. is in dire need of a makeover. Well, maybe a little one. Probably. For sure. Ugh. Whatevs.


Based on a short story by Mary Gaitskill, Secretary is one of my favorite films of all time. In the film, James Spader plays the neurotically demanding lawyer, Mr. Grey, that develops an S&M fueled love affair with his secretary, Lee Holloway (Maggie Gyllenhaal). It's a classy little film full of dark comedy, romance, and just plain insanity. Can you tell why I love it? LOL! Below, I chose a famous clip from the film as if I had to--I would say that Mr. Grey has a natal Venus in Virgo (perhaps in aspect to Mars/Uranus?). Ha!
