With Virgo season in full effect since August 22nd, we’ll likely feel the effects of Virgo in some form or another until its end on September 22nd, 2021.
Maybe you’re asking what the main qualities of Virgo are? If you are a Virgo or you know a Virgo, you will know that this Mutable Earth sign is one of the most reliable, dedicated, and practical signs of the zodiac. Practicality is their middle name!
In the Chinese Zodiac, Virgo is the Western equivalent of the Rooster. Roosters are also practical, reliable, and hard-working, but they can also be critical and bossy.
So when Virgo season comes along, we can all expect to get our heads down and start planning, organizing, and preparing for what needs to be done. It brings some calm and stability to our lives after the fiery energy of Leo, which often brings drama and excitement of some kind.
Now let’s look at the chakras: what should we do about the chakra for Virgo season?

The Connection Between the Zodiac & the Chakras
When it comes to the zodiac and chakras, we can find ways to blend them to help us in various ways!
So what chakra is Virgo? Each zodiac sign is connected to one of the seven major chakras. Virgo is connected to the fifth chakra – the Throat chakra.
Virgo is a sign that feels best when their throat is in the best condition. Mercury – the planet of communication, rules this sign. Therefore, Virgo is at their best when they can communicate in a calm and concise manner.
In fact, Virgo energy manifests at its best when it can communicate thoughts, solutions, and ideas in a setting where it can have a wide and powerful influence – public speaking, for example.
This energy can also manifest in the written word as a mode of communication, so it’s a good time to write that blog, article, or piece and utilize the world wide web and social media to get it out there.
When Virgo energy is in the air, we are drawn towards our Throat Chakra and encouraged to recognize where it is blocked and how we can unblock it to make the best of this wonderful Virgo energy.
What Happens When the Throat Chakra is Blocked?
A blocked Throat chakra can result in one or more of the following:
- Being afraid to speak your personal truth
- Having difficulty expressing your thoughts
- Knowing what you want to say but struggling to get the words out
- Feeling anxiety about speaking in front of others
- Worried that you may sounds “stupid” if you speak in front of others or if you express your opinion
- Low self-confidence when it comes to speaking
- Extreme emotional outbursts that come out of the blue
- Extreme quiet
- Being overly critical of yourself or others
- Not being critical at all
Physical symptoms can include:
- Chronic sore throat
- Raspy throat
- Gum disease
- Thyroid problems
- Mouth ulcers
Don’t be surprised if, during Virgo season, your attention is drawn to these symptoms if you have a blocked Throat chakra.
So how can you work with the Throat chakra for Virgo season?
How to Strengthen Your Throat Chakra
Virgo season is one of the best times to work on the Throat Chakra because it is during this season that Virgo calls out to us all. Virgo people, and those with Virgo present in their birth chart, will especially benefit from paying attention to their Virgo chakra during this time.
Below are three fantastic ways to strengthen your Throat chakra during Virgo season:
1. Use Crystal Healing
The Throat Chakra is associated with the color blue, so crystals that are blue can be beneficial during Virgo season.
Lapis lazuli, blue kyanite, and blue lace agate are especially wonderful for helping to heal your Throat chakra.
Wearing them around your neck in the form of pendants helps to assist your Throat chakra. The crystal’s energy will naturally connect to the Throat chakra. Keeping a record of any differences, large or small, that you feel during Virgo season can be very helpful in monitoring your progress.
2. Repeat Positive Affirmations for the Throat Chakra
The Throat Chakra is all about using your voice, so what better way to do this than with positive affirmations?
Repeat these to yourself when you wake up in the morning and at night when you go to bed. The more you repeat positive affirmations, the more your Throat chakra will hear you.
Some good positive affirmations are:
- I trust in my voice
- I have the ability to speak up for myself and others
- I am smart and intelligent
- My voice is my connection to the world
- I am confident in my ability to speak
3. Try a Reiki Healing Session
One of the best ways to look after your Throat chakra is to consult a Reiki specialist. A Reiki practitioner can identify blockages in your chakras and spend extra time working on your Throat Chakra if necessary.
If you feel your Throat chakra is in need of a little TLC, a Reiki healing session can work wonders.
