After courageously taking on the heat of Leo, Venus will be moving into Virgo on November 3rd. This transit will help Venus calm down and get some relief from the attention and focus of Leo on the care and nurture of Virgo. Still, Venus will engage in more internal conflicts, as it will get in touch with Ketu while it is debilitated. So let’s find out what it means for you.
Today we are discussing Venus transiting in Virgo. This transit will occur on November 3, and Venus will stay here until November 30. So it’s a relatively short transit. While here, Venus will be working with Ketu to internalize your focus and help you find things that are wrong with you. It will help you identify your mistakes and find out how to interact with the world in a better way.
Venus represents love, compassion, harmony, balance, and the finer things in life. Basically, things that you enjoy Virgo is all about serving, about preserving your innocence, and also about working with your shad-ripu, or the six enemies. For you people in the west, it’s like working with the seven sins.
When Venus moves into this sign, it also becomes debilitated. In such a condition, Venus is unable to see its own beauty, and it is forced to work in an environment that slowly erodes its passions, its romance, and its beauty. It’s like being in a loveless marriage for a person who is very romantic at heart.
On top of this, Ketu’s influence on Venus will be striking as well. Ketu is about withdrawal and moving away from forward, outward expression. So the tendencies to internalize your issues and mistakes will be there after they have been identified.
Again, I will explain with the help of an example.
Imagine a person who was in a terrible household and was very sensitive. This person is sensitive to both praise and criticism. Which means that the slightest issue from their parents could hurt them like hell, and the slightest appreciation works like magic. This person had both parents working and fighting and was never the ideal lovebird that they imagined.
Now, when this person grows up, idealizing romance in a way, they fall for someone. They have butterflies, and they feel giddy all the time. Then they realize that marriages are difficult. You cannot spoon each other to sleep all night, every night. The partner is also not available all the time. Maybe because they have responsibilities. Maybe because they don’t care anymore.
This person starts realizing that they have fallen into the same pattern as their parents, and now managing life is very tough. They have seen the problem, accepted it, and internalized it because they don’t know what to do about it. And they are slowly withering away. Their romantic aspirations remain unfulfilled, and they feel empty inside. Then they have to do the daily grind too. Work and care for the kids too, because you have to keep earning to ensure your family is at least properly fed. The harsh realities of life hit them way too hard.
This is the condition of Venus in Virgo alongside Ketu. This doesn’t mean all this is going to happen to you. It is an example. So you will find people, especially Virgo people, finding their own failures and realizing where they went wrong. It is difficult for you because you are known to find fault in others. Pisces, on the other hand, will now start finding faults with the world and everyone around them. They will be like, This is wrong. I have to fix it.
This position is not very conducive to a peaceful atmosphere. We just know that the world is not all sunshine and rainbows. There are some terrible things in the world, like inflation and war, and we have to fight with them every day. At the same time, we have to know that we are not as nice people as we imagine, and we have to fight our demons every day too.
Since Venus represents women, if you are a man, you may feel like your partners are becoming a bit passive-aggressive, and they are trying to pinpoint faults a lot in general. If you are a woman, you suddenly have an epiphany when you realize what is wrong with you and take the blame for everything, even if you don’t have to.
However, this is a great time for us and the world to look at people who are suffering—physically and emotionally. And you don’t have to go to a foreign land to feel sympathy. Look around you. I can’t believe people who are ignoring the plight of people around them, who are in abusive relationships, who have mental health challenges, who are struggling to speak and share—because you know you don’t want to interfere in their lives, and suddenly, they want to solve the biggest conflict in the world with talk, flags, and podcasts.
Get real. You need to take care of your surroundings first.
