Illustration of the Virgo constellation with the planet Venus in the background

In ancient times, as the harvest approached, some rituals called for a virgin sacrifice to appease the forces of nature in order to bring in a bountiful crop. Virgo became the name of that time of year that featured such planning and execution of a ritual with a designed purpose. The zodiac sign Virgo emphasizes planning, detail and premeditation. It also is connected deeply to the earth and has a pragmatic streak. While some signs of the zodiac debate what might work if only things were different, Virgo works with the way things are to get the best results.

When Venus is in Virgo, love and attraction take center stage in your plans, be they devious, detailed or divine. Venus is the planet that rules love, art and beauty. Virgo is a sign more associated with farming and office work than it is in being a bombshell, so this planetary passage tends to open up some long-locked floodgates of desire. All around you will notice women and men taking extra care of their appearance and working seductions in the ways they imagine such a methodical love submission will work best. But if you read for your zodiac sign below, you will be able to focus on the specific attractive features that Virgo brings out in your sign. When these are highlighted by the visit from Venus, accentuating these areas of your life, appearance and personality will bring the partner you crave all that much closer.

Venus enters Virgo on July 10 and is there until August 6.

Aries March 21 – April 19

It will be in working overtime or studying an extra few hours in summer school that you will find an attractive person associated with your job or studies.
Outfit: A bright purple accessory and some sort of funky hat or vest will make you stand out after hours. Push the limits for a little more attention than you ordinarily get.

Taurus April 20 – May 20

A handsome hunk with a precocious child in tow will be attracted to you. Can you learn to adjust to a life with a lover and his child or children? Think it over before his spell on you becomes as deep as your spell on him.
Outfit: When you go out, wear something with some gold or yellow fringe or rhinestone-like decoration on it. You are the masterpiece; let that all be your designer framing.

Gemini May 21 – June 21

Redecorate in a hurry when you find out what his domestic expectations happen to be. Getting him to feel comfortable over at your place is the most important gear in your seduction machine.
Outfit: If you go to lunch dressed like you are headed to a club, you might get the invite to a place just like that. Be what you dream.

Cancer June 22 – July 22

Ask your close friends to think of someone with whom to set you up. You can accelerate the relationship toward intimacy by already having confirmed with a friend where this guy is headed.
Outfit: Try to wear a bikini top and casual jeans with the knees torn open. Go for the casual, natural and informal look. You will appear much more approachable this way.

Leo July 23 – August 22

Your attraction to someone’s material possessions could be hypnotic. Friends might explain why he is no good for you, but it is not him you are really after, just the illusion of owning what he has access to.
Outfit: Leather might be too hot to wear in the summer, but as an accessory, it heightens the drama of what you bring to a relationship.

Virgo August 23 – September 22

Venus in your sign makes you look as good as you can imagine, so emphasize your natural state as much as possible. Be flirtatious and mysterious to drive the right guy crazy.
Outfit: An emphasis on artfully designed accessories brings out your intellect and sophistication that he might overlook in an otherwise passionate state.

Libra September 23 – October 22

You needn’t say a word. The thumping music will draw him closer and the ambient light will make you look irresistible. You might want to get his name before you fully embrace passion, but clothing is optional after that!
Outfit: Printed tee shirts with your favorite slogans and bands inspire him to dance to the tune you are playing.

Scorpio October 23 – November 21

If you get called to jury duty while Venus is in Virgo, jump at the summons. There is a good-looking bailiff or a fellow juror who will want to discuss your desires in his private chambers.
Outfit: Chocolate browns and dark oranges will pull him in with a sultry and sweet promise. Dress professionally and you will attract a professional.

Sagittarius November 22 – December 21

An artist may want to paint your portrait and while you pose you may become a bit too familiar with his gaze to turn down his next art idea. Is body paint making a comeback?
Outfit: Denim is the rage when you are wearing it. Try rock climbing and see if he likes the shape you are in.

Capricorn December 22 – January 19

You’re only going to look your best if you are in an unfamiliar location. For once, just be a tourist with a map in your hand, even if you are walking down the block on which you have lived for a decade or more.
Outfit: The loose-fitting light jacket worn in summer will be enough to make him beg to see you in something shapelier.

Aquarius January 20 – February 18

There could be a stumbling block in your way toward passion. Venus in Virgo creates an attraction to married men in Aquarian women. You may have to sit the game of love out until Venus leaves Virgo.
Outfit: Reds, especially maroons and burgundies, will make you appear dramatic and desirable. Scarlet could attract the edgier, creepy kind of guys.

Pisces February 19 – March 20

Venus is in the natural partnership sector of the zodiac for Pisces when it visits Virgo, so assume that your soulmate could be right around the corner. Accept a date with destiny and smile at strangers.
Outfit: Green and gold attracts monogamous men looking to start a family soon. Don’t wear these colors if you are not feeling fertile.
