Your Sign’s Virgo Season Horoscope is Here

Virgo season is about to commence, dear friends! Tomorrow, the Sun moves into Virgo, the practical Earth sign who governs work, the details, and daily life. Virgo season is the time of year when we get down to business and get things done.

Be smart and get ready now with your Virgo season horoscope (wink wink).

So, when is Virgo season? For the exact Virgo season dates, Virgo season starts on August 22nd and goes until September 22nd. Make sure to use our free astrology calendar to keep track of the planetary movement each month!

When it comes to what Virgo season means, Virgo season is when we’re dedicated to the little things, tackling all of the smaller projects, practical tasks, and chores that have piled up, and we can get ourselves organized. It’s been wonky energy this year, so no doubt we all need to get focused and shrink the to-do list!

This one might be a little challenging though, since Mercury will be retrograde for some of it, starting September 9th (to October 2nd). It starts in Libra and moves to Virgo right after the Sun leaves Virgo.

Mercury being the ruler of Virgo means, we may feel quite a bit off and extra stressed out during the second half of Virgo season. In Libra, it may be because we’re out of balance and the people in our lives are causing some problems.

With Mercury retrograde going to Virgo the day after the Sun exits Virgo, there may be some heightened energy around then Virgo-wise. Stress is high, we’re overwhelmed, and we’re frazzled to the max.

It’ll be important to not be too hard on ourselves or others (perfectionism is a classic Virgo problem), and that we take breaks. We may want to push ourselves too much, and this leads to breakdowns.

In the meantime, before that retrograde starts, make use of the positive Virgo energy we’ll have to get organized, complete small projects quickly, sort out schedules and routines, and plan for the breaks.

Virgo Zodiac Sign Traits

Virgo is an Earth sign, and that makes Virgo practical and hard-working. Virgo is also a Mutable sign, and that makes Virgo a sign that is constantly on the go, always wanting to be occupied.

That’s why Virgo is the sign of work and daily life—there’s always plenty of work and chores to do.

The natural ruling planet for Virgo is Mercury, the planet ruling the mind. This makes Virgo a little more intellectually focused than the other Earth signs and helps give it the attention to detail and skill of observation that it’s known for.
