When Venus steps into diligent Virgo after bombastic Leo, it's time to get it together.

This placement cares more about intellectual stimulation and a good heart than the usual material trappings of romance. In this placement, true love looks more like unloading the dishwasher rather than over-the-top displays of affection. Honesty, loyalty, and trust are most important. Virgo tends to evaluate all their options before making a solid decision, so Venus in Virgo takes a cautious approach to love, taking their time to evaluate potential partners before jumping into a relationship (or bed).

Those with their Venus in Virgo understand innately that true love happens beyond the grand moments. Therefore, they treasure the little moments in between: doing the dishes, cooking meals together, and generally establishing a couple's routine. Theirs is a practical affection that aims to improve both themselves and their partners.

Positive Traits

Venus in Virgo's love language is acts of service, so expect a clean kitchen instead of a bouquet of flowers! However, these natives aren't unromantic. Their gifts simply err on the side of functionality. They're more likely to set up a candlelit meal after a particularly tiresome work week than to send their lovers on an expensive shopping spree.

Though practicality serves one well on the job, it may be better for Venus in Virgo to consider that love sometimes requires spontaneity.
