"When I am working on a problem I never think about beauty. I only think about how to solve the problem. But when I have finished, if the solution is not beautiful, I know it is wrong."

-- Richard Buckminster Fuller

Although Venus is considered in her "Fall" in Virgo -- meaning she's not necessarily able to express the highest qualities of the goddess of beauty and love -- the support from the god of the Underworld (Pluto) brings a special evolutionary power and potential to the mix. As Venus in Virgo trines Pluto on July 30, we now have the opportunity to transform the way we love and relate to others, to beauty and to our own value systems.

The downside to Venus in Virgo is the way in which critical attention to details can interfere with the ability to love without condition and criterion. We tend to notice the flaws and imperfections under this transit, cancelling out the whole unconditional love potential. Picking off the lint from your lover's coat, dissecting and analyzing beauty, love or art may be useful or even practical, but it's certainly not exactly a recipe for Eros. However, falling in love blindly and losing all sense of discrimination can be a recipe for disaster in its own right.

Virgo is the archetype often depicted as the archetype of the Hermit and the Healer, which conjures images of a solitary individual. This is an opportunity for all of us to find the part of us that can find beauty and connection in the midst of being solitary.

Another upside to Venus in Virgo is the relationship with simplicity, service and process. We can glean insight into the everyday patterns and details that go on in our relationships. Jung was often quoted for saying that "love is in the small" and there is the opportunity now to understand how some of our deepest relationship bonds may be found in the smallest details -- like the way we hand our lover his coffee or the way our partner remembers to set the alarm when we forget, and other simple but beautiful daily rituals.

The support from powerful Pluto brings in the need for integrity and the focus on what we're building for the long haul. We're now looking at the moral foundation, fiber and skeleton of our relationships and value systems. In terms of our artistic process, Venus in Virgo working harmoniously with Pluto in Capricorn is excellent for refining and restructuring the way we work and create. We can figure things out and streamline our partnerships, value systems and artistic creations now by deciding to focus only on what's essential -- and eliminating the rest.
