Planets in Virgo Part 2: Mars, Venus, and Moon

Updated on August 25, 2014

In Planets in Virgo Part 1, Ascendant and Mercury, I talked about Ascendant/Rising and Mercury in the sign of Virgo. In this hub, Planets in Cancer Part 2: Mars, Venus and Moon, I will be talking about mars, Venus, and moon in Virgo. Again this does not specifically refer to the sun sign in Cancer (some similarities may apply however). If you do not know your Mars, Venus, or Moon sign, you can run a natal chart (for free, type natal chart in google and plug in your birth data.)


Mars in Virgo

Your Mars is in Virgo, in the planet of action, sexuality/sexual expression, and energy. Mars in Virgo is a nice position (remember Mars is exalted in Capricorn). Earth and fire mars are generally good positions for mars to be in. Virgo is an earth sign ruled by Mercury (the planet of intellect, communication, etc). As an earth sign mars, Mars in Virgo is practical, grounded and realistic).

Mars in often related to work (among other things). This is a classic workaholic position (Mars in Capricorn is guilty of that too!). Virgo is naturally a busy body.They like to think and they like to do. They are active, and in Mars, Virgo is very active. They are eager to help out and the most relaxed when doing something productive (like working, exercising, cleaning, organizing, etc.). You won’t find the Mars in Virgo at home being lazy and inactive.

Most likely their weekdays and weekends will be planned out. An example is Weekdays: Exercise in the morning, Work until 7pm, tidying up and a light, health conscious meals. Weekends: Exercise and laundry in the mornings, cleaning and organizing in the afternoons, etc. You get the drift.

Mars in Virgo are the types to be members of clubs and organizations. Book clubs, park clean-up alliance groups, tennis/yoga/ clubs, etc. Volunteering is also a good route for this mars sign. Overall the Mars in Virgo person likes routines and planning.

Lastly there is a health consciousness and do it your selfness to the Mars in Virgo person. Virgo rules over the sixth house of work ethic and health. They are interested in being healthy (that includes eating healthy, exercising, being environmentally friendly). So you might find them in the kitchen cooking, making their own clothes/ stuff (for practical reasons) and exercising.


Mars In Virgo (cont'd).

Mars also governs sexuality and sexual expression. Mars in Virgo is the Virgin/Whore of the zodiac. To explain a bit, Virgo is a mutable sign (along with Pisces, Sagittarius, and Gemini). So there is a changeable, duality and dueling natures to their personalities.

The Mars in Virgo person can be quite dirty/bad and on the flip side quite reserved and conservative. "The lady in the streets and the freak in the bed" is the mantra the Mars in Virgo person will live by.

The Mars in Virgo person will be both hot and cold. When they are hot, they can be intuitive (aka detail oriented), and really knows what their partner likes (after careful investigation and practice). When they are cold the Mars in Virgo person is prudish, traditional and conservative. One thing they won’t be is extreme (more on the kinkier side), they do everything in doses. Overall the Mars in Virgo partner will be kinky, practical and smart.


Venus in Virgo

Venus is all about love and how we act in relationships. Venus in Virgo is quite a difficult position for Venus to be in. Venus is in the Fall in Virgo, which is weak position. Remember Pisces (Virgo’s opposite sign) is exalted in Venus.

Venus in Virgo isn’t idealistic, spiritual and emotional in love and relationships. They are very level-headed, grounded and practical in love and relationships. They are not the “getting carried away or sweep off their feet” types or the “love at first sight” types or “the soul mates/the one” types.

They treat love in a very practical and reasonable way. They are generous and helpful and love is about action for the Venus in Virgo person. They do things to show that they love and care for you. It’s the little things that they do, and the little things that count for them. They don’t yell out proclamations of love, and they don’t have Pisces gift of nondiscrimination and boundary evaporation. They are very selective, picky, and critical of those around them and they need to know that you are stable and sane. The best way to get to their heart is to show them appreciation, be helpful and to make them feel useful, needed and respected.


Moon in Virgo

Your Moon is Virgo, which means you are ruled by Mercury. The moon governs emotions and is at home (dignified) in Cancer and exalted in Taurus. Earth signs moons are very stable and grounded, with Virgo moon not being an exception. Virgo moon is ruled by Mercury which is filled with fickle, nervous energy.

Most of time this good, it makes a Virgo moon person communicative, open, with good sense of curiosity and attentiveness.

On the downside Virgo moon person can be quite a worry wart, quiet, scrutinizing, and quite annoying (not in the worst way, but not in the best way either). Overall, Virgo moon person doesn’t get carried away with their emotions and their emotional responses are quite conservative, and modest. It may seem like a Virgo moon native is incapable of feeling but they simply don’t have the time to dwell on emotions. They have too much to do (such as organizing, reading, exercising, etc.) The Virgo moon person works best when they get a chance to be helpful, productive, and serving.


Overall this concludes the second and last part of my Planets in Virgo Series. Thank You!

      you're too sweet you need to find a rich guy to take care of you next time I see you you'll be in a BMW! LOL I like women I can take care of and protect, buseace of the cancer venus, aqua n.node, birth path 6 I always default back to do that for others I like a person who can make me want to be a better person, and also one that doesn't judge and will show me different perspectives to open my eyes leos love someone who can make us feel loved and appreciated who also shows their support for us Not many leos I know have their dreams recognized or are shown support by the people they love so it is a large thing we look for Just loyalty and support.,..we in turn will look at the person inside over their appearance most of the time leos have no problem dating good looking people, but we won't settle for someone/thing fake like a capricorn would for a trophy wife etc i APPROACH them by flirting, teasing, sarcasm, and being honest/blunt with them I have no problem telling someone I like them it is harder to do if the other person isn't giving me any signs or they are being too defensive, I suggest you try to open up a little around him and flirt back not to mention it doesn't hurt to tell him how you feel or at least give some compliments hinting that you may be interested in him lol.
