It probably won’t come as a shock to most of you who’ve been reading my work for a while, but whenever possible I enjoy sitting outside, writing or getting my ideas. I’ve learned a lot about life just from watching the local animals. I think they’d actually made me a better astrologer in some ways, and probably a better person overall.

Between now and August 16th, while Venus is in Virgo, I am performing an experiment on a relationship of mine. Specifically I’m referring to my relationship with Mr. Fowler.

(No matter what transits are happening, how they play out in your life depends on your individual birth chart. Write me with your date, time, and place of birth — and I’ll send you a copy and a free sneak preview!)

That’s him in the above picture. Mr. Fowler is named after Reese Fowler because of his eyes. Reese Fowler was a character on the 1964 episode of The Outer Limits called “The Mutant.” If you understand that reference, without looking it up, congratulations! You are probably an even bigger nerd than I am. Otherwise you can look it up later.

Mr. Fowler is just as skittish as any typical jackrabbit. But as time goes on he’s less and less afraid of me. It’s not like he actually wants to play with me like a dog or anything, but my familiarity seems to give him some comfort. He’s pretty selective about what weeds he eats and where he digs in for his naps. That’s right: a jack rabbit is comfortable enough with my presence to take a brief nap in front of me. Achievement unlocked!

Venus is the primary planet we look to for ideas about love and friendship, although of course all the planets are involved in those somehow. And if you re-read my description of Mr. Fowler’s personality you’ll realize that in some ways he matches the stereotypical description of a Virgo, or someone with Venus in Virgo. And that’s the kind of Venus Energy we’re experiencing now.

If you have set your sights on a relationship with a Virgo, or someone who has Venus in Virgo, I recommend caution. Not necessarily because they are inherently dangerous — because they themselves usually are fairly cautious beings. It makes sense to mirror their approach. If you wanted to date one from Lithuania, you might want to learn some of their language and culture, right?

So this is how I will be spending a lot of my time out in the yard here: I’m going to continue to let Mr Fowler approach me space and I will continue to remain slow and not make any sudden moves.

So what does this have to do with getting involved with a Virgo, or someone with Venus in Virgo? Although of course it depends on the nature of the relationship, please take my advice on the matter.

Patience and kindness are great virtues to Virgo. They don’t like being startled usually. And once you’ve gained their trust enough for them to approach you, or for you to approach them closer? That’s when you break out the bag of baby carrots and start feeding them. Again, this will be a new activity to the Virgo, and may cause some alarm at first. But that Virgo will catch on soon enough.

Unless of course the Virgo you are interested in does not have a great interest in baby carrots. Feel free to substitute “what you bring to the table that they like” instead.
