Virgo is an earth sign, thus not very flexible, and you are not ready to leave your morals and ethics for romance. During July, Venus, the planet for love, will start its slowdown, which can impact everyone worldwide. It will end this only by September. This phase will mark a reunion with your ex-lovers, but you should take your time before taking them back into your life. Please do not be desperate to be in love as time takes its course. You are a patient person, so patiently wait as retrogression is not the time for decision-making. Venus retrogression does not favor harmony, so you have to work towards a harmonious relationship. You majorly look for perfection in whatever you do, so you are known as the perfectionist of the zodiac. However, you should understand we are humans; thus, to err is human. Learn to forgive and move on.

Venus will be transiting the fifth house of meet-ups in December, bringing some opportunities to meet with like-minded people. March to April will be the time of crisis, so you should not argue with your loved one.
This year will bring more pleasure trips than official ones. In the later part of January, Venus will impact the seventh house of long trips so that you will find some opportunities for long trips. Cancer season begins in June and will also favor long trips and foreign collaborations. Throughout the year, long trips will be coming up, and the last month of the year will surely trigger you to move out from home. Mercury, your ruler and the planet for travelling, will be in retrogression every quarter starting from January, so you have to make plan B whenever this planet is in slow down.
