Venus and Mars connecting in Virgo occurs in your 10th house, traditionally, creatively activating the way you approach your professional ambitions and the way in which you wish to be remembered. The conjunction will make a powerful connection to Pluto, in your traditional 2nd house of security and sense of worth, then a constructive connection to Saturn, residing within your 11th house of wider connections, suggesting that this conjunction will be both transformative for you, and determined, with a possibly fated feel, but one that will undoubtedly urge you forward, whether you're ready or not.
Venus and Mars in Virgo at 19° from the 4th to the 7th will inspire practical measures of love, self-sufficiency, and emotions that make sense. The keyword to the nineteenth degree of Virgo, created by Marc Edmund Jones, is elimination. All of these life lessons you've either been learning— or rejecting— to allow and stop trying to control, and to trust in All That Is and allow universal flow will come to be rather essential now. The nineteenth degree of Virgo asks you to be emotionally resilient.
What is it you want in this lifetime?
How are your needs and your wants coming together?
Eliminate all the noise, all the urges to control, all the weight you continue to keep despite your better judgment in letting it go. Eliminate all that is unnecessary, be it someone or something that drains your energy; a job, a relationship, an unnecessary obligation, or an unhealthy habit. Eliminate all that is no longer useful to you and your greater good. Eliminate what/who takes away from your light, or keeps your from your Truth.
The way you embrace the unknown and the unknowable, the hidden meaning of things, and your own inner psyche in this lifetime will become exposed as Jupiter moves into Scorpio, through your traditional 12th house. Jupiter will be here until November of 2018, so confronting your vulnerabilities and allowing these evolutions in obligation would be best.
