The planet that rules love is also the planet that rules how you look and how well you attract possible partners. The planet is Venus and the location it occupies in the zodiac directly influences our good looks and chances at love. As it moves from one zodiac sign to another, so do certain styles look better on you, some makeup suddenly stands out and as always, the march of what is trendy stays one step ahead of the followers.

Venus will be visiting the zodiac sign of Virgo from August 27 until October 14. This is a practical zodiac sign and the planet of love is weak here. This creates a sense of longing and loneliness, yet all people have to realize is that if they were patient and properly outfitted, love would find them even in mildly trying times.

The secret to attracting attention while Venus is in Virgo is to highlight your body’s best features and add a little flashy pizzazz while everyone else is walking around in pragmatic outfits that highlight the opportunity for men to look elsewhere. Don’t follow the crowd, advertise your assets for attraction’s sake.

Aries March 21 – April 19

The Pros: You will be looking great on the job if you work on the little things like posture, smiling and eye contact. A cute regular customer will be interested in what you are doing after hours. Go slow.
The Cons: If you are unemployed, finding the proper forum to attract attention will be difficult. Perhaps you might consider volunteering somewhere that a lot of single men visit.
Best Colors: Beige with gold highlights; gold jewelry.

Taurus April 20 – May 20

The Pros: A summer relationship that has cooled might make way for a spring fling to be back on again. Being open to revisiting a recent flirtation on a more serious level will bring results that could be quite romantic.
The Cons: If there are any children in the mix there could be some or all of your attention too focused on them while Venus is in Virgo. Making time for love could be an impossible task.
Best Colors: Turquoise makes you stand out, especially if you wear black to make it really bounce.

Gemini May 21 – June 21

The Pros: Your house or apartment will be the perfect place to entertain some friends who bring along a single friend. In your domestic setting, there is a glow about you, and the pride you take in your surroundings makes you look great.
The Cons: Out on the town you might blend into the crowd too much to be noticed or stick out in an unfashionable way. You are not relaxed when you are not in control these few weeks while Venus is in Virgo and it shows!
Best Colors: Cream white and a red brooch, fire engine red nails and lipstick.

Cancer June 22 – July 22

The Pros: You will be looking your best when you confidently move about familiar territory. Act as a tour guide to your local haunts with an internet date or new romance. You will impress him deeply.
The Cons: If you do not know the lay of the land, you might end up coming off as irritable and unappreciative, especially if a guy who really likes you is trying to impress you with something you are not used to.
Best Colors: Dark greens and purples accent your gestures.

Leo July 23 – August 22

The Pros: Your energy is attracting men with features similar to yours, which is great unless “your type” is closer to being an opposite. While Venus is in Virgo, look for a reminder of what is in the mirror and smile. He should come running.
The Cons: You will be getting a lot of attention from people intent about discussing what they believe and implying that it is something that you should believe. Be yourself.
Best Colors: Yellows again highlight your golden temperament.

Virgo August 23 – September 22

The Pros: While Venus is in your sign, you will be seen as attractive and can confidently approach the man you want in any crowd. A casual chit-chat will excite him and you can accelerate the beginning stages of the relationship.
The Cons: You will be attracting unwanted attention more than usual and some of it may be coming from people who can talk you into what they want rather than what you want. Venus is easily seduced that way…
Best Colors: Burgundies and mauves make you look luscious.

Libra September 23 – October 22

The Pros: The start of an intense seduction is the likely outcome of all the flirting Venus in Virgo will cause you to do. The trouble for Libra is that you might be attracting more than one passionate new pursuer. Be selective!
The Cons: You might give in to some excessive behavior involving drinks or food and turn off someone who could be a great catch.
Best Colors: Blues of all shades will save you from singing the blues.

Scorpio October 23 – November 21

The Pros: You will have no shortage of men expressing a mild interest in you, but it will be up to you to pick from the crowd of gawkers and pull one closer for a more intimate inspection. Sniff around to make sure he fits all of your moods.
The Cons: You might fall into the trap of believing you have finally found “the one” and be setting yourself up for disappointment if and when he flakes.
Best Colors: A chance to have something bright as an orange top or scarf will make you stand out.

Sagittarius November 22 – December 21

The Pros: Venus in Virgo allows you to pursue a professional project without considering a relationship. The possible soulmates out there will find you when you are least interested. The pursuits of one in particular will entertain and persuade you.
The Cons: You may be oblivious to love as you find some excellent business opportunities and could walk by a pre-destined love partner without even considering a casual conversation.
Best Colors: Peaches and pinks go well with your on-the-job outfits./p>

Capricorn December 22 – January 19

The Pros: There was a chance this summer to have a great love conquest and if you took advantage of that, Venus in Virgo will only make things between you two all the better. If you are single, second chances arrive soon and must be taken with haste.
The Cons: Ruminating over a lost chance at love could be keeping you sulking and out of the mingling in social situations that is required when you want a mate.
Best Colors: Silver highlights to warm reds and yellows.

Aquarius January 20 – February 18

The Pros: Someone on the rebound will be absolutely smitten with you and could shower you in compliments and gifts. Flattery always works with an Aquarius, so be on guard for a man with deep passion but unfinished business in his recent past.
The Cons: You might be an easy target for a married man and get wrapped up in a relationship that features so much sexy mystery that you fail to realize he is just hiding his wife and kids from you.
Best Colors: Greens bring out the advances.

Pisces February 19 – March 20

The Pros: The visit of Venus to Virgo draws out your inner attraction to a possible soulmate or deep passion partner. You can get together with a cute guy for a casual lunch and be at the breakfast table with each other before the conversation is through.
The Cons: Your inherent belief in soulmate certainty might be keeping you in pursuit of a terrible partner. Meanwhile a perfect match is waiting to be gazed at for a second or two in order to walk over and meet you. Expand your horizons.
Best Colors: Busy patterns will stimulate the men you meet in preparation of you doing the same.
