The planets cycle through the same 12 Zodiac signs that the Sun does, but each planet is more at home in some signs than in others. A planet is able to show its best face in a sign where it is the ruler or exalted.
Venus is debilitated, also known as in fall, in the sign of Virgo, because Virgo is the opposite of the sign where Venus is exalted, Pisces. Venus wants to be able to pursue what it loves without limits, and oceanic Pisces is in agreement. Practical Virgo, however, is all about limits.
Though people with Venus in Virgo are not the world’s dreamiest romantics, they do have their own unique gifts. They are usually hard workers who are quietly devoted to their loved ones.

Venus Basics: Which Sun signs can have Venus in Virgo?
Venus stays within two signs of the Sun in terms of relative position to Earth. That means people who have Venus in Virgo can have the Sun in only the following signs: Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, or Scorpio.
A person with both the Sun and Venus in Virgo is practical and detail-oriented. They may be overly focused on conserving their resources, and it is hard for them to feel secure. When they do finally relax, though, they have an earthy sensuality.
A water sign Sun like Cancer or Scorpio has a tendency toward emotional excess, so such a person could benefit from the practical grounding of Venus in Virgo. This person would be more emotionally open than most Venus in Virgo people are, in a good way.
Leo Sun with Venus in Virgo can be frustrating because the basic Leo personality puts a priority on pleasure, while Venus in Virgo values practical achievement. When Leo does get stuff done, Leo tends to be focused on the big picture, while Virgo gets lost in the details. If they can bring themselves to work together, however, their skills tend to fill in each other’s gaps.
Libra Sun with Venus in Virgo is a hard combination because Libra, one of the signs Venus rules, is drawn to the idealistic side of Venus. Virgo, however, tends to scoff at ideas, valuing only concrete achievement. Both Virgo and Libra are detail-oriented, though, and they also reinforce each other’s tendency to become depressed when they fall short of perfection.
Venus in Virgo Personality
People with Venus in Virgo value practical achievement. It can take a long time for them to reach their goals, however, as they insist on getting all the details just right. Fortunately they have patience to go with their demand for perfection, though they are not always as kind to themselves as they should be.
Virgo is one of two signs ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication and intellect. A big difference between Virgo and the other Mercury-ruled sign, Gemini, is that Virgo is an earth sign, while Gemini is an air sign.
People with Venus in Virgo can have some of the same chatty tendencies Venus in Gemini does. Venus in Virgo is more likely to turn that intense mental energy inward and become self-critical, though. Honest assessment of what works and what does not is often a necessary part of getting things done, though, and Venus in Virgo is likely to actually accomplish what Venus in Gemini might only talk about.
Venus in Virgo also values nature and conserving material resources. These people may be excellent gardeners, hikers, or environmental advocates.
In general, Venus in Virgo would rather stick to a budget than spend wildly. If a Venus in Virgo person is going to splurge, however, their likely targets would be technology or gadgets related to organization.
Venus in Virgo in Love
People with Venus in Virgo can be shy about declaring their romantic intentions. Even when they are in an established relationship, they may find it hard to communicate about their feelings. They may chatter a lot without saying what is really on their mind.
People with Venus in Virgo tend to show love with acts of service. They are not the most emotionally effusive people in the world, but they are attentive to the little details of their partner’s routines and do everything they can to make their partner’s daily life more pleasant.
The symbol for the sign of Virgo is the virgin. Though this does not mean that all Venus in Virgo people abstain from sex indefinitely, it is true that Venus in Virgo has high standards for picking a partner and may not become physically intimate with just anyone.
Venus in Virgo people are typically reliable partners who want long-term relationships. They are not wondering if the grass is greener elsewhere, because they know the grass is greener where they water it. They would rather be thought of as boring than get involved in drama.
Venus in Virgo Man
The Venus in Virgo man is reserved and often does not portray a wildly sexual image. He might actually seem young and innocent for his age.
The Venus in Virgo man may meet his partner through sharing his practical skills like tech support. At worst, he could be the kind of “nice guy” people complain about. At best, he is genuinely kind, a hidden treasure who doesn’t toot his own horn.
Venus in Virgo Woman
The Venus in Virgo woman can lack confidence in her own beauty and be her own worst critic. If she feels really insecure, she can turn her capacity for criticism on others as well.
At her best, the Venus in Virgo woman has an earthy, sensual nature. She can make perfection look effortless, though she has, of course, put a lot of effort into it behind the scenes. She may be quiet, but she shows her devotion to the people she loves by helping them with their practical needs.

Best Match: Venus in Virgo with partner’s Venus in Cancer or Scorpio
Cancer and Scorpio are the water signs closest to earth sign Virgo. The four elements – fire, earth, air, and water – typically break down into two groups of two: fire and air, and earth and water. Older astrology texts often refer to fire and air signs as masculine and water and earth signs as feminine.
In today’s world where people of all genders are able to express a broader variety of roles and traits, perhaps a better way to understand the difference between the two groups of signs is to look at their focus.

There is some really good tips here, whether you've experienced a marriage that's "on the rocks" or not.
Water and earth signs tend to be interested in security and in maintaining the structure that exists. This can include the domestic stay-at-home parent, but it can also include the sort of person who looks for a job that is stable and guaranteed. No matter what happens in the world, industries like education, healthcare, food, and banking aren’t going anywhere.
Those lines of work are therefore full of earth and water sign people of all genders.
Fire and air signs are interested in innovating and exploring. Even if they are found in stable industries, they find the wilder parts of those industries.
While an earth or water sign person might be happy with a financial job that involves managing conservative investments for retired people, a fire or air sign person might get curious about the riskier side of the financial industry like options trading.
Similarly, the fire or air sign worker in the healthcare industry might gravitate toward experimental therapies. As in the theory underlying Chinese medicine, there’s Yang within the Yin.
The theory of Yin and Yang, as described by the Traditional Chinese Medicine World Foundation, works well for understanding the difference between the fire and air signs and the earth and water signs. Yang is the outwardly focused energy of fire and air signs, and Yin is the inwardly focused energy of earth and water signs.
While earth and water signs are both focused on security, they put different spins on it. Earth signs focus on physical security, while water signs focus on emotional security.
Venus in Cancer appreciates Venus in Virgo’s attention to detail, which others might overlook. Venus in Cancer often feels overlooked by the rest of the world, as Venus in Cancer is constantly running around trying to take care of everyone else in ways that they might not notice.
Venus in Cancer therefore sees in Venus in Virgo a kindred spirit, though Venus in Virgo is more focused on physical details instead of the emotional undercurrents Venus in Cancer tries to manage.
Venus in Virgo and Venus in Scorpio both have difficult reputations in the astrology world. Venus in Scorpio is referred to as Venus in detriment because Scorpio is the opposite of Taurus, one of the two signs Venus rules.
Venus in Virgo is referred to as Venus in fall because Virgo is the opposite of Pisces, the sign where Venus is exalted.
The commonality here is that Venus performs best in signs that have a reputation for being generous. Virgo and Scorpio both tend to feel instead that they need to conserve what they have.
A good side of this is that Venus in Virgo and Venus in Scorpio could both be excellent environmentalists, recycling more diligently than most people would have the patience for.
Venus can be a little lazy in the signs it rules. Venus’s side of the story is that sometimes relaxing is good for you. Venus in Virgo and Venus in Scorpio, however, are in agreement that hard work is important.
Second Best Match: Venus in Virgo with partner’s Venus in earth signs
The three earth signs, all of which share a grounding in the physical world, are Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn.
If Venus in Virgo were to pair off with another Venus in Virgo, neither would have to work to convince their partner that their quirks were valid because they would have very similar quirks. This would free the two Venus in Virgo people up to relax and enjoy themselves more than they otherwise would.
Venus in Taurus, however, might push back against Venus in Virgo’s insistence on working hard and saving money. Venus in Taurus enjoys comfort and relaxation, and they are willing to spend money to feel good.
Ultimately Venus in Taurus and Venus in Virgo will both defer to the authority of facts and figures to mediate their ongoing disputes: either the bank statement agrees with Venus in Taurus that they can afford that fun getaway this month, or it agrees with Venus in Virgo that they cannot.
Venus in Capricorn is closer to Venus in Virgo in terms of valuing hard work and saving money. While Venus in Virgo may become scattered worrying about those things, Venus in Capricorn is more able to figure out what is essential to focus on versus what is not. Venus in Capricorn may therefore be able to calm Venus in Virgo down.
Third Best Match: Venus in Virgo with partner’s Venus in other mutable signs
The other mutable signs besides Gemini are Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces. All four mutable signs live on the transition from one season to another, in terms of what time of year the Sun goes through them.
Venus doesn’t move from sign to sign at exactly the reliable times that the Sun does, but Venus travels no more than two signs away from the Sun at any given time.
In the Northern Hemisphere, Virgo marks the transition from summer to fall, from a time of abundance to a time of worrying about having enough to get through the winter. Venus in Virgo is therefore a difficult match with Venus in Pisces, moving from the cold of winter to the promise of spring, and with Venus in Gemini, moving from the promise of spring to the abundance of summer. Venus in Pisces and Venus in Gemini are too optimistic for Venus in Virgo.
The sign of Sagittarius is moving from fall to winter, but it is ruled by Jupiter and generally coincides with holiday party season when the Sun goes through it every year. Venus in Sagittarius has the same joyful vibe, so it doesn’t match the bleakness of Venus in Virgo’s outlook.
All The Rest
The signs that have not been covered yet are Leo, Libra, Aquarius, and Aries. Leo and Aries are fire signs, and Libra and Aquarius are air signs.
Leo and Libra are the signs on either side of Virgo. As noted previously, Venus can be no more than two signs apart from the Sun. There are therefore many Venus in Virgo people with the Sun in Leo or Libra. There are also many people with Venus in Leo or Libra who have the Sun in Virgo.
If at least one of these situations applies to a couple where one has Venus in Virgo and the other has Venus in Leo or Libra, incompatibility is not a huge concern.
The hardest matches for Venus in Virgo are Venus in Aquarius and Venus in Aries. Venus in Aries, however, like Venus in Scorpio, is a sign where Venus is in detriment because Aries is the opposite of Libra, the other sign Venus rules.
What Venus in Aries therefore has in common with Venus in Virgo is that their way of expressing love does not fit common romantic stereotypes.
Outsiders can bond strongly with other outsiders, so Venus in Aries could work together with Venus in Virgo to come up with a unique arrangement. Venus in Aries would still have impulsive tendencies that would drive the predictability-craving Venus in Virgo crazy, though.
Venus in Aquarius is very cerebral and loves to discuss ideas. Venus in Virgo does not relate to that because Venus in Virgo wants everything to be grounded in the physical world.
