Venus enters Virgo July 18th turning Retrograde in a week, July 25. Any planet standing virtually motionless in the sky is very powerful.
I feel this image of Venus in a still balanced yoga pose,or like a blue heron.
VENUS IN VIRGO GODDESS of the HARVEST
Jules Breton 19th Century French
Uh Oh, Love goes backwards. Don’t shoot the Goddess!
also money, values and work reviews, relocations, Love rests, and health renewals.
Venus Retrogrades into the Underworld which is the Sumerian myth of Inanna. Venus goes into what we know as Pluto’s realm to give up all of her worldly status, her jewels, and ego to be dismembered and hung up like a piece of meat on a hook to rot. She is then rescued by her helpers and is reborn after three days and comes back to the Upperworld to reclaim her throne from her impudent arrogant lover Dumuzzi who she left to tend it, who she then sends away or kills.
So pay attention to the Myth, this is a shortened version for we will be reenacting Venus’s letting go of her ego act,which she begins to do at zero degrees Virgo. She retrograde’s back in Leo and turns direct at the 15th and most powerful degree on September 6. She will take until October 8th to get back to zero degrees Virgo again.
Venus in the underworld dredges up all the fantasies and fears about dying, letting go, surrender, leaving everything we know behind. Lovers, money, beautiful objects, relationships, anything we are attached to and clinging onto dear life with must be let go of during this 6 week process.
Venus Retrogrades once every year to a year plus in an eight year cycle. Think back on where you were, who you were with? what were you earning? your health? eight years ago in 2007.

Virgo is all about being humble, frugal, a servant, being part of a community. Leo is all about ME, selfies, vanity, ego, fancy bling, dress to impress, self-proclaimed god status, billionaire’s, you know.
Venus in Virgo is earthy love, why don’t we do it in the road?
The ego will be struggling with Venus Retrograde in Leo to not let go of the status symbols. But the cosmic process says we must get down to essence. VIRGO is the trees, the harvest, the sacred ground, the oaks, the fruits of our labors. Virgo is on budget, practical, accountable, perfectionist.
Out with the VENUS in LEO drama and over the top passion,and time to get grounded, simple, slow down.
Virgo, symbolized by the Virgin Harvest Goddess, is a very ancient and large Constellation.Health is a huge issue for Virgos, as they do worry a lot which can affect their health. Their weakest body part is the upper intestines and they often have underlying health issues of this type.
While Venus is in Virgo you should very carefully watch your diet and health and avoid drinking alcohol, eating greasy, heavy and spicy foods. Venus in Virgo helps one be very disciplined and health conscious. You will love doing yoga, walking, working out and eating simple and healthy during this time. Go on a cleanse it is also optimum time in the fall. Give your body the gift of health care;do get massages, use natural herbs, naturopaths, Chinese herbal and homeopathic medicines which are not toxic.
There will be love reversals and losses. Many relationships will be stressed and end.
