Smart, detail-oriented, and sharp as a tack, it’s likely that we all wish we had a bit of Virgo in our lives now and then. Spoiler: you don’t actually have to wish!
With Virgo season kicking off on August 23rd and leading us through September 22nd of this year, it’s important that you know not only what Virgo represents but also where it lands in your birth chart.
Why? Because with the Sun in Virgo, you may find any Virgo energy in your birth chart amplified in its season.
That’s right: Virgo energy, like all the other zodiac signs, lives within us all. And now it’s time to find out what exactly it means for you!
The Virgo Zodiac Sign
By now, you may have heard quite the reputation surrounding Virgo’s perfectionism — from nitpicky tendencies to an insatiable desire to get the job done “right,” there’s certainly something to be said about Virgo’s stickler behavior.
But where does it really come from?
Both Earthy and Mutable, Virgo has the best of both worlds: it’s grounded and practical, but it’s also flexible and adaptable. This means Virgos have a knack for wanting tangible success and progress in everything they put their mind to, but they’re also very capable of noticing when things go awry — even the small stuff.
Ruled by Mercury – the planet of communication and the mind – Virgo also isn’t afraid of speaking their mind.
So, yes, Virgo may harbor a reputation for being a perfectionist at times, but they’re often the pair of eyes you’ll want on your major project or goal if you want something done right.
The Impact Of Virgo Season
As mentioned, Virgo season’s impact lasts for a whole month.
This means we’ll see Virgo’s tendencies of attention to detail, self-efficiency, and practicality amplified for us all. It’s a great time to get things done and see through any lingering projects or work that we’ve been putting off.
What’s more, Virgo will be lit up in our charts wherever it lands.
Never found yourself relate to Virgo before? You can best see how Virgo season will affect you by noting where Virgo is in your natal chart.

Virgo in the Birth Chart: Planets
First, check to see where Virgo lands in the planets of your birth chart. These can have a major impact on the core pieces of your personality and who you are as a person!
Sun, Moon & Rising In Virgo
Any of these placements can lead to an extremely prominent Virgo energy within you.
The Sun, representing the ego and a core piece of the self, would reflect Virgo energy in a variety of ways, but especially in what you wish to put forth into the world. The Moon, governing emotion and your inner world, allows you to connect with Virgo in the emotional space.
And finally, with a Virgo Rising, the traits are projected outwards, making it a noticeable part of who you are to others around you.
Mercury in Virgo
You are a skilled communicator with a knack for teaching and articulating your ideas clearly. With a logical, practical mind, you have a down-to-earth understanding of what goes on around you, making you a valuable asset to any team.
Venus in Virgo
Venus in Virgo highlights the typical qualities of Virgo but in love and relationships.
Venus is known to be in fall in Virgo, which essentially means that it’s a bit of an uncomfortable placement for Virgo to inhabit. Although a Virgo Venus has a strong desire to help and care for their loved ones, you can also be a perfectionist in relationships with impossible standards or have the desire to “fix” other people’s flaws.
On the flip side, you can be a doting and extremely supportive partner, genuinely wanting the best for those that you care about.
Mars in Virgo
With Mars in Virgo, the energy of the maiden is prominent with your drive and ambition.
As the planet of will and passion, Mars shows us how we pursue things. With Mars in Virgo, you can be exacting and detailed about how you want things done, often with a self-sufficient and efficient pace.
Additionally, you may be known to “wear many hats” and always have multiple projects open for business, holding a need to keep busy at all times.
Jupiter in Virgo
As the planet of expansion, luck, and opportunity, you’d want to understand Jupiter in Virgo so that you can really take advantage of its qualities.
Otherwise, you may find positive luck and opportunity for growth in areas where you have the ability to communicate, teach, or assist others (especially when it comes to health and body).
Saturn in Virgo
As the planet of restrictions and karma, Saturn can seem like a bit of a party pooper, seemingly being restrictive wherever it lands.
Virgo is already a pretty exacting sign and can care deeply about the outcome of their actions as is. So you can imagine that with Saturn in Virgo, you may find its tendencies heightened, especially when it comes to sweating the small stuff.
Ultimately, Saturn in Virgo teaches you about opening up to a more well-rounded approach so that you can appreciate all facets of life.’
Uranus in Virgo
Folks born in the 1960s may find Uranus sitting in Virgo in their chart.
A planet of revolution and innovation, Uranus wants to change and grow. With Uranus in Virgo, this generation has brought changes in how we perceive health and wellness, for example.
Neptune in Virgo
Some older folks born in the ’40s may find their Neptune placement in Virgo.
Dreamy and elusive, Neptune brings a distinctly otherworldly and spiritual tone to wherever it falls in your chart. In Virgo, you would find a strong foresight, especially with regard to projects and work, guiding your way.
Pluto in Virgo
Critical and practical, this generation grew up faster than others, gaining responsibility at a younger age than the generation that raised them.
With the Pluto in Virgo placement, you’re bound to learn and grow through self-analysis, attention to detail, and experiences that prompt humility.
Chiron in Virgo
Chiron shows us where we hold some of the deepest wounds.
With Chiron in Virgo, you may find yourself highly self-critical or anxious, wanting to fix everything around you, but only because it keeps you busy for a bit. With enough care and long-term vision, Chiron in Virgo can be a powerful healer nonetheless.
