The Fantastic Venus in Virgo De-Vamp

Venus in Virgo

How good is this Venus in Virgo?

The Goddess of Love & Beauty is in the sign of exactitude until August 6/7.

So I’m calling this the De-Vamp. Leaving aside relationships for the moment, Venus in Virgo is streamlining beauty and aesthetic. Apply Details Consciousness to the minutiae of laundry, hemlines and – yes- the underwear drawer.

Venus in Virgo Vision super-powers include the ability to detect previously invisible stains or lack of conviction in the words of beauty therapists.

What, you may be wondering already, does this product do? Could the promised result be achieved by something more simple? Spinach, for example. Sleep? An actual orgasm?

The consciousness around what one’s clothes or cosmetics are signalling? Ruthless.

Venus In Virgo Visionary Super Powers Of Stain Detection

Venus in alignment to Saturn knows for sure what time it is.  There ain’t no way some shadow part of your psyche, still lurking around in a dimension vaguely resembling the early 2000s, is going to be let in charge of the purchases.

It is not the high-noon-on-the-ranch nonchalant disdain for stupid regimes of – say – Venus in Sagittarius. Nor is Venus in Virgo the full-deal Terra Mater of Venus in Taurus.

Venus in Virgo wants to do something. Obsess over cracked toenails, for example. Or go on a google research bender about comedogenic products and electric hair brushes.

With the latter, do the benefits outweigh the E.M.F. factor?  Electric slippers – a good concept for stimulating circulation and reflexology points or an early senility indicator?

Venus in Virgo Will Not Let Shadow Selves Do The Beauty Shopping For You

But Venus in Virgo is not an add-on dynamic a la the revamp vibe of Venus in Leo. It’s minus this and subtract that to see what happens. If something is not efficient, it’s out. But beyond that, Venus in Virgo is well aware that ancient mascara and it’s equally decrepit sister products can poison you.

Is it good to go to bed slathered in product to take advantage of the nocturnal cellular renewing cycle? Or terrible because the skin needs to breathe? Venus in Virgo is perfectly capable of de-vamping the entire aesthetic regime and starting over.  Potential Culprits: Unflattering clothes that signal ennui or desperation. Pillows that could have their horror microbe channel on YouTube if you could but microscopically view them.  “Who the fuq did I think I was that day?” make-up purchases.

The Venus in Virgo of last decade would likely have been a scrubber – exhibiting a religious devotion to exfoliation. In 2018, she knows that the skin is the gut turned inside out.  And the contemporary V in V is more likely to be swayed by beauty company values than slick marketing or a sucky magazine article. Venus in Virgo is, of course, a devotee of anything D.I.Y. but also of scientifically legit substances.

Going with a Venus in Virgo De-Vamp regime may be a brilliant move this month. It could also be the perfect excuse to not go out on the Full Moon Eclipse Friday 27/Saturday 28.  It’s a regime. You can’t just stop your facial muscle toning exercises halfway through.

My Venus in Virgo home recipe is aspirin (non coated) x 4 crushed and mixed with honey pop that on your face for a few minutes, rinse it off and thank me later

Virgo is my 7th house. The more I exfoliate, the more room I have for nicer things.

Not makeup or skin, this virgo venus (hovering over my natal mars -uranus -pluto) has had me minutely obsessing over vintage straw handbags, and I have ordered no less than five different styles from Etsy.
Though I did purchase new underwear today. Was going to get some Probiotics too but just realised the health food shop has been replaced by JB HiFi.

Any good Probiotic starter recommendations would be most appreciated.

I’ve been contemplating a new perfume lately. It’s not very virgoan, but I seem to go through my fresh / grassy fragrances very fast, they’re so nice to wear. I have a split perfume personality – half of them are Orientals, oud, cartier panthere etc very rich and sensual, the other half are austere and fresh, not the ozonics but more chanel cristalle (old school!), Grapefruit notes, Hermes mediterranee. What’s out there these days?

Pi, I share with you the very same schizo and am in the same situation – been looking for a new fragrance for at least two years. trying to move away from ‘ysatis’/’boucheron’/’knowing’ /’coco’ for the winter, and from ‘cristalle’/cheap, single-note honeysuckle edt now that I can’t afford it/’angélique lilas’ by guerlain (when it existed) for the summer. I live in Italy where summers are hot and mostly humid, and between that and hot flushes changing fragrance for the summer has been unavoidable (no more hot flushes now though). after staying at my house last week ( = in the… Read more »

Venus in Virgo has seen me chop my curly hair to chin length and wear it sans products for a wild frizzy Italian woman halo. Make-up is out. 8 hours of sleep is in. I feel beautiful.

I did this too but instead of an afro, I’ve gone from long, straggly hippie to a choppy red bob which is a messy masterpiece. Would you agree that shaking your head is a whole new bag of sensations? It almost tickles!

That virgo is in hell, Bosch’s hell, which is hilarious because we so often talk about saturn hell.. I’m getting used to the sulphurous smell of my own version :/ Anyone with tips for how to disengage completely from deep disapproval vibes? Struggle. It’s a no win situation. Not doing something seems to be met with as much venom as doing it. urgh. My latest diy thing -mechanically stretching the skin (even the supposedly delicate skin under eyes) is a nice non-invasive way of inducing collagen. So facial massage in which you literally use your fingers and pull in opposite… Read more »

It might depend on the who and why of the disapproval vibes. My most recently held approach is, throw their stupid disapproval back in their face and just do what feels right for you. If that person can’t openly speak to you about whatever it is you’re doing that is bothering them, thereby allowing some change or discussion, that’s officially their problem – not yours to second-guess.

PegasusMM Member
Pegasus

Yes it’s THEIR problem, not to be impinged on you.

PegasusMM Member

Meaning the person doing the disapproving has no right to alter the mood of the person on the receiving end. Amp up the inner strength with the warrior pose i say 🙂

syrynxMM Member

Oh that’s great a great idea to help me be solid. I’m swinging between feisty flipping the bird and deep victimhood at the moment and I don’t like myself at either of those extremes.

syrynxMM Member

I’ve done some combative things in the past, but in my mind they were wholly justified and to protect my kids and stand up to bullying, but actually I really don’t know whether it is fallout from then or something else. I think you are right though, an it harm none do what you will sort of thing. I contort myself trying to be good but it’s a futile thing, joyless and then I get all virgo snakey about my deathly quiet life. Hmm. Good advice Pi.

PiMM Member
Pi

What do you mean by contort yourself trying to be good? What’s the worst that can happen if you are simply yourself, meeting your own needs? If you’re experiencing anxiety about some kind of punishment or rejection for making your own self happy, (not sure if that’s the case, just as a thought experiment,) then maybe that is a cue to look within. Consider whether the other person (or someone you related to in your past) is engaging in withholding behaviours to try to manipulate or control you. Lastly, you can always take the bull by the horns, diplomatically speaking,… Read more »

Holy Cow tick tick tick! Stains on freshy washed clothes back into machine with a little spray of “get it off”, puzzling over the 6 mascaras and planning on chucking the lot and shopping for 1, Pillows, nails and buying jewelry. Incredible, I did notice how snuggled up to the Moon Venus was last week.

ChrysalisMM Member

I’ve recently become obsessed with facial exercises as a way to fix up some of the sagging that seems to have occurred post-menopause. Sinus issues and associated eye bags plague my family and I am determined not to end up looking like my poor granny who aged before her time. I have good skin but the structure underneath needs work.

ElectroMM Member

Shredded an enormous head of purple cabbage and I’ve been eating it with meals daily. Not sure of the specific benefits but it seemed like a good idea.

Other than that I have my summer MO and a progressed Sag ascendant so no make-up, no nailpolish, lots of adventure and rest, sunshine, and hair dried by rolling down all the windows.

Oh and sun-ripened berries from the yard. I’m sure those have potent magic. They share soils with the mugwort.

This week am buying a lipstick, a very expensive one as the pigment in them is intense, so therefore mileage and staying power.Have cut out the colours from the Vogues’ & Marie Claires’ that would suit my colouring. This is quite a big purchase since retirement as no longer able to justify high end marquillage….*sigh* champagne taste on beer budget.

This maven remembered when underwear was called lingerie

I bought a chic drawing / everything notebook on Monday that has substantial light brown pages, surprisingly good for colored pencils and easy on the eyes. All of a sudden my notes after subconscious trancing look super elevated and I’m channeling inspiration on furniture designs, a tarot themed painting series, pentacle jewelry. Virgo vision

Light brown pages! Yes, found grey lightly textured paper wondrous for painting on.

Strangely enough. I’ve never worn makeup (except lipstick). Been thinking about concealer for some “liver spots”. Recommendations welcome.

PegasusMM Member

Current may i recommend Clinique ‘beyond perfecting’ foundation AND concealer. A little goes a long long way when used as concealer only.
(Use it on my hands as well when needed).

RMS Beauty “un” cover-up. A little goes a long way. Low fuss, easily applied with the tips of your fingers, clean, in a non-plastic glass jar. 😉

If you’re more pharmacy-budget, try Bourjois. (No interests to declare!)

PegasusMM Member
Pegasus

Bourjois used to have beautiful packaging with perfect mounds on the rouges with marvellous colours.
Re the Clinique, advise asking for a sample pot to test colour as the one i have is 4 years old and still 3/4 full, so a sample will last foreva and eva….and eva. x

I think this is where I’m at, Venus-land, and she is coming around to meet with my natal Mars/Mercury and about to oppose Neptune. Lately I’m obsessing over the Evan Healy cosmetics line. Essential oil based, holistic/organic, created by an esthetician, “the skin breathes” is literally the tagline. I’m also soaking and scrubbing dead skin off the bottom of my feet lately like a fiend. Finding pleasure in completing small tasks, baby steps toward perfection. I’m also thoroughly enjoying the book Circe by Madeline Miller (recommended by Mystic in the monthly horoscopes) and it’s making me look at news and… Read more »

Circe is such an amazing read, I am literally toting it around with me everywhere, reading at stoplights even. I’m starting to wonder what I could possibly read next that will hold my attention and capture my imagination this thoroughly. I do realize, though, that I’ve turned a corner and am ditching reading fluff (news, FB rabbit hole articles – both of which only flabbergast me and leave me feeling powerless) and from now on am only going to enrich my mind and my senses with hard covered, hand held, paper books and novels. Historical fiction is my absolute favorite.… Read more »

I’ve been drawn to minimalistic fashion lately when I’m usually all for color and tie dye and batik and patchwork and wild. Haven’t been bothering with makeup as of late because it seems superfluous in the heat and stupid. Migraines have been plaguing me so I’ve been exploring cutting out grains and carbs when I am typically like NOOO give me all the bread. Also been cataloguing the needs of my children (clothing, shoes, etc) and showing my love by purchasing supportive footwear and the like. I just went and got a haircut today, a simple bob of sorts, after… Read more »

Oh so this would explain why I spent my evening commute yesterday pondering the merits of wearing concealer, when I can just not eat dairy or sugar and can lay off the dream weed that gives me awful undereye circles. Money saved, efficiency achieved.

Ooo yes. And Venus conjunct my ascendant, so I’m suddenly obsessed with chopping off my hair, only I don’t quite know who I am enough to know *how* I want to get it cut. I’m tempted to choose a few Pinterest pics and let the hairdresser decide. Oddly, I am suddenly wanting to buy tons of creams, even though I never wear makeup or own anything like that. I suppose I’ll stick with my scrubbing routine for now and see if the “prettify me” impulse passes.

i guess that explains the makeup purge and the dermalogica spree. also rediscovering glycolic acid for dealing with both midlife wrinkles and cystic acne that i cruelly have simultaneously.

And slightly horrified to realise that the next eclipse falls on a weekend where i am at a 2 day conference, doing my annual socialising with “my people”.

I had a conversation with the ex-chef (can a chef really ever be an ex-chef?) who sold me my rental commercial grade food processor, about soil. Soil IS the gut of the earth. He whispered his secret soil building recipe to me and I jolted upright in an electric shock epiphany. He was approaching his garden in an incredibly similar way to how I approach the gut, minus the blood and bone. I cleared out my overgrown garden beds over the weekend, and will now feed the soil with some extra special ingredients. I’m processing grief by designing my semi-eternal… Read more »

Aqua-cap-GeminiMM Member
Aqua-cap-Gemini

No idea about the Astro. But he is into making chutney, and his special tomato sauce, which he says is because of the special tomatoes he plated (terra Pedera or something or other) and his loving cultivation of the soil. There is a study somewhere that says the bio-flavinoids in our food is because of soil quality. So food without taste comes from crap soil. HIs secret soil recipe is quality compost (preferably your own kitchen scraps), cow poo, charcoal, blood and bone, and quality yoghurt full of cultures. All mixed together. I feel like I’m missing an ingredient…. ?… Read more »

AlouettaMM Member

oh that’s great. I’d not heard of using yoghurt before but it makes sense. I’ve used all the rest + tailings from home brew beer (yeasty goodness) and if you want to make your own biochar I recommend peeing in your charcoal (haha don’t let the neighbours catch you) and letting it sit for a day or two before adding to the mix.

I guess the blood and bone would be a big hit of phosphorus. Also if you think about it, soil in biologically rich areas is full of animals from micro to macro , constantly dying and breaking down in situ. I wonder if it also attracts some kinds of micro critters that improve soil health. Organic matter like mulch will improve soil structure and attracts microfauna who do the same and these animals also are very important for soil turnover (ants, worms e.g). Charcoal and soil carbon is from memory key to nutrient retention and availability, the silica also makes… Read more »

PiMM Member

Hey, we can’t edit any more? I wanted to add phosphorus and *calcium, for the blood and bone. But I’m also seeing that you’re not keen on that option for assuming animal reasons. There is also a more ethical option maybe, in Oz it’s called Charlie carp, made from fish that are a pest species in our waterways. I’m not sure of the manufacturing specifics but you could look it up, if that’s important.
