Venus gets debilitated at 27 degree of Virgo. Virgo is owned by Mercury, and therefore Virgo is Venus’ friendly sign, then why does Venus get debilitated here?
We all know Venus is all about beauty, physical pleasure, material enjoyment. However, in deeper terms of Vedic Astrology, Venus is actually Daitya Guru Shukracharya. Shukracharya was not only enlightened, but also possessed the rare knowledge of healing thorough Mrit Sanjeevani Mantra which literally means the mantra for bringing the dead alive. Therefore beneath all the glamour and glitter of materialistic promise, Venus is actually about deep spirituality. Without Venus’ blessing, you cannot really progress in spiritual life.
Now if we consider Virgo, it shows calculating, analytical mind and perfectionist mentality. Venus loses its natural, soft significations of pure love and beauty here and finds unnecessary fault in the way these attributes are expressed. That is the reason people with debilitated Venus feel somewhat insecure about their appearance, love, and general happiness and peace. Their critical mind is always trying to perfect the way they look, criticising the way others look and somewhat dissatisfied with the love and happiness they have in life. Women with debilitated Venus are normally very beautiful looking people, but the irony is they themselves are never satisfied with their appearance. This kind of insecurity and a constant effort to improve in the matters related to Venus comes with debilitation. Virgo sign belongs to the natural sixth house of six sins of human life. Here the deep spiritual aspect of Venus cannot flourish. Here only the superficial materialistic aspect of Venus finds its way through our six sins or Shada Ripus. Therefore a debilitated Venus gives increased passion and longing for materialistic possessions.
This is the reason why Venus is exalted in the sign of Pisces, the most spiritual sign, and debilitated in Virgo where the Sada Ripus prevail. One thing we need to know here that we associate Venus with passion, but Venus is not about passion at all. Mars is passion. Venus is about the purest form of universal love. However, when it is not expressed in the pure form due to unfavourable placement or malefic aspects, the same love takes the tinge of passion.

So what happens in practical life when Venus is debilitated in the birth chart. It depends on which houses Venus owns in your chart. If it is the owner of the good houses, it cannot produce the benefic results to their best. The benefit of any debilitated planet is that, if it is the lord of the malefic houses, the bad results of those houses also reduce. For example, if Venus is your 6th lord and is debilitated, it actually is better for you. Over indulgence in the matters of sensuality is a major sign of debilitated Venus. In general debilitated Venus has a tendency to over compensate for all the Venus related attributes, not only sensuality and physical love. After all debilitation is a state of the planet, a person with debilitated Venus will have to put in way more effort than a person with strong Venus in the matters of love, money, relationships, comfort and luxuries. Debilitated Venus in your birth chart shows issues in your love and relationships but that does not necessarily mean that you will not get married or will have separation or divorce. For these there are other planetary influences that should be checked.
