Venus moved into Virgo last night where it will remain for about four weeks.
Virgo isn’t the most comfortable place for Venus. It sort of closes off the planet, making it over-critical and judgmental, like the look on Venus Williams’ face in the photo I posted above. People with Venus in Virgo in their natal charts are sometimes characterized as being emotionally stunted. There might be a bit of that in the air for the next month. It will be difficult to express how we really feel.
So, how can we deal with our emotional deficiencies during this brief transit? We can calm the fuck down, that’s how! Everything everyone else says is not necessarily about us; stop taking everything personally. Conversely, don’t let your own motives be misconstrued by being incessantly bitchy or critical. Don’t put in your two cents unless you’re ready to spend the rest of the dollar on punitive damages when the court of public opinion decides in favor of the defendant. Words can be especially hurtful right now, especially while the sun remains in sensitive, over-protective Cancer.
If you do find yourself in a position where it necessary to apologize, then apologize. Say “I’m sorry that I hurt your feelings,” not “I’m sorry if I hurt your feelings.” A single word can make all the difference during this transit, so choose your words wisely.
