Marinara's Astrological Charts 14

Venus in Virgo

Venus in the sign Virgo is in its fall, (that is, detrimental) since Virgo is opposite the sign Pisces, in which Venus is exalted. People with this position tend to overanalyze emotions and be too critical of those they love, making others feel self-conscious and inhibited and cutting off the spontaneous flow of affection. (This could be another reason Keith doesn’t spend that much time with her.)

This analytic trait can stand in the way of a direct intuitive response to beauty. These people try to understand the beauty of a rose, for example, by dissecting it petal by petal, not realizing that the rose is beautiful because of the totality of its parts. (Instead of dissecting Keith and all his faults, she should accept him as he is.)

People with Venus in Virgo frequently seek partners with whom they can share their work and intellectual interests. (So far, so good.) But this Venus position is likely to produce more unmarried people than any other Venus sign position, because of the natives’ high critical standards for what they want in a mate. (She may accept him as a companion, but not a mate, because she knows Keith has some undesirable qualities that she cannot change).

When they do marry, it is often through connections with work. Unless Venus is heavily afflicted, (it is) there are congenial relationships with co-workers in general. The place of work is often made artistically pleasing by a personal contribution to the working environment. (Katy hasn’t stayed anywhere long enough to make such a contribution.)

These people are extremely fastidious about manners, personal appearance and hygiene; they are repelled by uncouthness in any form. They have an innate sense of the beauty of order and cleanliness and hence make good cooks (lucky for Keith!) and dieticians (and boy, does he need a diet). They can have ability in clothes design and dressmaking; fashion designers often have Venus in this position. In art, they can have good technical ability but may lack inspiration and flow. (Probably better as a producer, editor or graphics design, than a reporter.)

The extreme social propriety of these people is often a cover-up for shyness and feelings of social and sexual inferiority. Their cold exterior, especially on the part of women with this position, often stands in the way of the development of romantic relationships. A feeling of loneliness and frustration may result. In this event, there is likely to be a retreat into work and intellectual pursuits and the lavishing of affection on some animal. Such confinement can in turn prevent the formation of social contacts that would help these people out of their shells.

However, if Venus is well placed by house and well aspected, the difficulties can be overcome or greatly modified. Because Virgo is an earth sign, Venus placed here gives attraction to material comforts and personal possessions of quality and beauty, which, the natives feel confer status. (She has goldigging tendencies, offset by some good traits).

Often they work hard to acquire such things, sometimes using possessions and status as substitutes for personal affection. (She accepts expensive gifts from Keith in place of actual affection? I would say it’s vice-versa according to her chart, but she doesn’t have possessions, status or money to give Keith to substitute for her affections, but she does have herself to give. And I mean that in the kindest way possible.)

People with Venus in Virgo are capable of sympathy and are helpful to the sick. Their ability for nurturing makes them good doctors and nurses. They can also deal with psychological problems stemming from social maladjustment, (that’s Keith) for Venus in this Mercury-ruled sign is able to combine reason with the emotions and investigate these matters in a methodical, analytic way.

Curiously, if Venus in Virgo is afflicted by Mars, Uranus, Neptune or Pluto, (there is a conjunction between Mars and Venus, but this is not necessarily malefic) there can be an overreaction against shyness and social propriety, producing loose living, promiscuity, and bohemianism. (I don't believe Keith would ask such a person to live with him.) This stems from a deep fear that only thus can the natives find love and sexual fulfillment; they feel the need to make sexual conquests in order to prove their desirability. (If Katy does not cheat on Keith, then she may consider him to be her last conquest for a while. Whether or not he is merely her latest remains to be seen.)

In these cases, the unconscious Pisces polarity takes over. These reactionary types can become crude and slovenly in their personal appearance and mannerisms. (It’s possible that she occasionally gravitates towards these behaviors, but I caution, the only evidence of that are some pictures of her dancing at some college party, and attending a party or club in New York, without Keith).

I seriously doubt that Keith is going to be her last conquest.

They may wind up getting married..who knows, but it isn't going to last long.

I've seen many many relationships fall apart shortly after those papers get signed.

She's young and vibrant and I just don't believe she's going to stick around to take care of an old guy.

He already isn't very healthy and if he doesn't lose weight he's just going to get worse.

I'm just waiting for the day I read that he's had a heart attack.
That's when her future will flash before her eyes.

marinara said...

Yeah, her future will flash before her eyes if he has a heart attack and they're not married, or she knows he hasn't included her in his will.

You can count on him wanting her to sign a pre-nup on condition of marriage. We may never find out if one was even offered, but, if there was, and she signed it or refused to sign, nothing certain about her motivation can be inferred from that.

What I thought was really interesting about this aspect "Venus in Virgo" was this

"They can also deal with psychological problems stemming from social maladjustment, for Venus in this Mercury- ruled sign is able to combine reason with the emotions and investigate these matters in a methodical, analytic way."

She knows what's wrong, and is helping him deal with it. That's how I read this. Then farther up the page

"Unless Venus is heavily afflicted, there are congenial relationships with co-workers in general."

Her Venus is heavily afflicted, so a person like this might be seen by their co-workers as a bitch, and she would need to change jobs frequently.

His Special Comment tonight was really wonderful, FG. He only made it about himself a little, by including his ill father. I thought that was ok.

Competition is very stiff in NYC. Lots of model-types roaming around. Katy is hardly a beautiful woman. In fact, it's a bit of a stretch to call her cute if you ask me. I think he may well be as good as she can do given her very limited looks (and judging by her stupid tv work, her intelligence). But I have to give her credit for this: she landed a multi-millionaire and now lives in luxury in multi-million dollar apartment in NYC.

Oh and I could care less about her astrological chart. Most of us figured her out a long time ago.

flowergirl said...

I read that his "special comment" was pretty good. But good or not, I just have no desire to see his show anymore.

Maybe the pre-nup is what's taking them so long to get hitched.

I don't think Katy is unattractive but she certainly isn't gorgeous. But then, neither is Keith.

marinara said...

They're both cute. Not handsome or gorgeous. Katy could use a little plastic surgery to thin out her nose, and so could Keith.

Now that Keith has disclosed that he wants his dad living near him, I guess that extra one bedroom apartment he bought in the Trump Tower was for his dad.

flowergirl said...

Didn't his parents live in the same house forever? Usually, the elderly don't like being taken away from familiar surroundings. But it could be different for them. And it might be a good idea.

Here's a beauty of a look at old keith olbermann.

marinara said...

Yes, Keith's parents have always lived in the same house in Hastings-on-Hudson. Maybe the old man doesn't want to live there any longer, now that his wife is dead. He's probably lonely there all by himself.

That was nice of Olbermann to find a place for his father in the same building as him. He could have easily put his father into a home or something.

Maybe Katy is neither very pretty nor very smart, but she's young and has a lot of other things going for her. She'll figure out on her own that she can do better. Maybe that thought is in the back of her mind, and that's a part of the reason why they haven't gotten hitched.
