There’s no getting around it–this is the least sexiest placement for Virgo. You will tend to relate to others in response to practical concerns rather than in terms of having fun or pursuing pleasure. You will need to make a concerted effort to establish a clear understanding between you and others regarding responsibilities or obligations in your relationships as this is the area most likely to be a source of contention. On a positive note, you may be making strides on the work scene due to good relationships with colleagues or superiors. Virgo is a service-oriented sign and you are willing to examine ways in which you can assist, organize, compromise, or resolve issues for greater efficiency. As a result of your efforts, you may receive promotional or financial gains through your employer. Additionally, there may be a greater focus on health, mind-body wellness, hygiene and dietary concerns.
Negatively, Virgo’s influence on Venus can make you hypercritical and prone to fault-finding. You may create an impossibly high standard for relationships that result in excessive self-containment. The fantasy lover may be more appealing than a real life partner who requires intimacy. Issues revolving around what is demanded or expected can create friction. This can devolve into a “what have you done for me lately?” mentality. Healthy self-reliance is encouraged.
