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).
