From August 22nd to September 21st, the Sun will be dancing in the sign of responsible Virgo.
Happy birthday, Virgo! It’s your time to shine, and the best time of the year to celebrate your unique personality! After moving through the fiery sign of Leo, we’re ready to experience the grounded, hard-working, and fastidious energy of the Virgo Sun.
As the Sun moves through each sign throughout the year, we spend about a month soaking in and experiencing the energy that each specific sign brings.
When the Sun is in Virgo, you may expect a deeper connection to Mother Nature, a greater concern for physical health, and a heightened ability to pay attention to detail. As an Earth sign, Virgo encourages hard work and sensible nature.
Today we’re going to explore the things we love about Virgo energy, as well as what you can expect during the Virgo season.
Let’s take a look at the strengths and weaknesses of Virgo energy to start off.
Virgo is one of the most organized and orderly signs of the zodiac. With keen attention to detail, Virgo is able to focus on tedious or time-consuming tasks with ease and grace.
Have you been meaning to organize your room, your whole home, or even your car? Virgo makes these tasks feel like a piece of cake.
This sign is practical and focused, easing you into a sensible state of mind. It’s easier to detach from your emotions when the Sun is in Virgo because you’re focused on practicality and goals.
Virgo is also a sign of service. Virgos love to help their fellow man and do what they can to be helpful to those they care for.
As a natural nurturer of the zodiac, Virgo’s energy encourages you to not only spend more time with your loved ones but also be there for them emotionally and physically.
While Leo’s energy may have urged you to focus on yourself, Virgo reminds you to think of others as well.
As an Earth sign, Virgo also promotes thoroughness and a steady pace. Leo may have amplified your passion and energy, making you feel more impulsive and quick to act. However, Virgo reminds you to take your time and finish your work carefully.
Virgo Season Areas for Growth
Every sign in the zodiac has its own weaknesses, and Virgo is no exception.
This sign is prone to overthink and worry, the more extreme versions of paying attention to detail. You may get too caught up in the details when the Sun is in Virgo, and it can feel impossible to let go of a certain thought or concern that has your attention.
Virgo is also a sign of perfectionism, and it may urge you to revamp your work over and over again until you find no flaws.
While this can be good for certain projects, it can also hold you back from creativity and the effortless flow of your talent. Try not to focus on perfectionism or you may become obsessed with the idea. Remember that flaws are sometimes the best part of a person or a project – try to find the beauty in them.
Finally, this zodiac sign likes order, but perhaps too much.
Virgo likes to put a plan in place and stick to it, which may not leave very much room for fluidity or a go-with-the-flow attitude. Virgo’s energy can be rigid, making it feel difficult to relax and enjoy the moment – especially when the moment isn’t thoroughly planned and properly executed.
It may be difficult, but you’ll have to remind yourself to lighten up during this time. Being too stiff and unmoving isn’t too compatible with being helpful to others, too!
What to Expect During Virgo Season
Now that we’ve learned more about the traits that make Virgo such a unique sign let’s focus on what you can expect during the Virgo season.
1. Embody the Energy of The Hermit
Virgo is represented by the Hermit card in the Tarot, a card that is associated with time spent alone, reflection, and deep philosophizing.
While Leo season may have encouraged you to be social and put yourself out there, Virgo season challenges you to spend time with yourself in solitude, focusing on topics and ideas that help you rediscover the beauty of your inner dialogue.
Spending time on your own can help you reconnect to your own nature and learn more about what you want in life. A time of being a recluse allows you to re-evaluate your life and re-frame your current goals and objectives.
2. Channel The Maiden’s Sense of Order
Virgo is depicted by the symbol of the Maiden, who is typically holding a type of harvest or bundle of wheat. This symbol represents the caring, generous nature of Virgo, who loves to host and assist their guests.
Virgo’s excessive attention to detail comes in handy when hosting a dinner party or family night, for example. You will leave no stone unturned, making sure that each appetizer, game, movie, or activity is aligned with a specific theme. No one leaves a Virgo party with an empty stomach or a frown!
However, if a party is not in order, there’s really no limit to what the skills of good planning and an eye for detail can really accomplish. Put those skills to the test in orchestrating a project, being a valuable team player to someone else’s, or straightening out the rest of your 2021 planner. The possibilities are endless.
3. Focus On The Big Picture
When the Sun is in Virgo, we are unfortunately more likely to sweat the small stuff.
All of this heightened attention to detail can make it feel impossible to focus on the big picture – but it’s crucial that you try. When you obsess over the little things, it’s harder to see everything that is beautiful and running smoothly in your life.
These obsessive thoughts amplify anxiety or altogether defeat the purpose of trying to be productive in the first place! It can feel difficult, but you’ll have to learn to let things go this month.
Practicing gratitude can help you reconnect with the big picture, allowing you to concentrate on your accomplishments, your health, and your happiness. Don’t let yourself get caught in a cycle of overthinking and ruminating this Virgo season.
Repeat after us: “Don’t sweat the small stuff.”
4. Put in the Hard Work
This is the time to get things done, whether you’re a Virgo or not. When the Sun transits through Virgo, we’re filled with a surge of energy that encourages us to put down the TV remote and get to work – even during a challenging year like this one.
While many of our normal routines have been disrupted, this is still the perfect time to start moving towards your goals and dreams.
All of this productive energy makes you feel like you can conquer the world, but don’t forget to take time for rest and relaxation. If you don’t allow your mind and body to recuperate from the stress you’re putting on it, you may become emotionally exhausted or physically burnt out.
So, appreciate the productive energy, but try to maintain a balance.
5. Expect Clear Communication
There’s a special twist to this Virgo season, and it’s that we’re experiencing Virgo in more ways than one.
For all of Virgo season, Mercury will be transiting the sign of Virgo as well. Mercury is the planet of communication and thought, and, fun fact: it also happens to rule over Virgo itself.
But what does that all mean?
Well, Virgo is therefore domicile in Mercury, amplifying its communicative qualities and making it feel right at home. And with the Sun additionally in Virgo, we’ll be expecting all the Virgo traits and tendencies to be really shining through and taking the lead over our lives.
Not only will it be easier to communicate effectively, but it’ll actually feel essential to say what’s on our minds. Now is not the time to shy away from speaking up!
6. Work On Your Wellness
Virgo is associated with the 6th house, the House of Health.
This House connects to our immediate environment, including our homes, work environment, family, and even pets. While the Sun moves through Virgo, you may feel a sudden, overwhelming urge to focus on boosting your immune system and stretching your limbs.
Even if you’ve struggled with your diets and health habits this year, this is the perfect month to start tackling your fitness goals. Virgo’s energy makes it easier than ever to find the focus and productive energy that will help you get back on track and feel healthier than you have in years.
However, don’t forget to treat yourself from time to time!
7. Get Intimate
Virgos are service-oriented and relationship-focused individuals. While they do have certain expectations for themselves and others, the high standards Virgos hold stem from compassion and caring. They want to see their loved ones flourish, and they’re willing to do whatever they can to help them get there.
While the Sun transits through this caring sign, you’ll feel the desire to lift your friends, family members, and colleagues up. You want to see those around you gathering success and confidence, and you’ll make a great cheerleader for your loved ones during this time.
To get the most out of this loving energy, practice activities that clear the mind and body of negativity, like yoga and meditation. When you approach your relationships from a positive state, it’s easier for you to avoid being overly critical!
