You’ve spent the past month partying hard and living your best life, thanks to Leo season, but now it’s time to tidy up because the Sun enters Virgo on August 23! I know, I know, you’re feeling bummed that the celebration is ending, but hear me out—you can’t spend all your time living the dramatic Leo lifestyle! The real world is knocking, so it’s time to get it together and get back to work. Virgo season is all about organizing your life, handling your sh*t, and making sure you’re in good shape physically and mentally. Earth signs Virgo, Capricorn, and Taurus thrive the most this month, while mutable signs Gemini, Sagittarius, and Pisces are having a harder time leaving the party and taking life seriously again.
Virgo is the zodiac’s hardest worker and a total perfectionist. The energy you’re feeling now is critical, detail-oriented, and mentally sharp. It makes sense that school starts back during Virgo season, if you think about it—you’re getting more focused and following a strict schedule, which are very Virgoan in nature. Even if you’re not a student, there’s a shift in the vibe whenever Virgo season starts and you’re noticing that you’re working harder, more inclined to tidy around the house, and always feel busy AF. Is it the most thrilling time of year? Well, no, but if life was always about having fun and telling yourself you’ll run those errands or do the dishes or finish that project “tomorrow,” then literally nothing would ever get done, ya feel? That’s what Virgo season is all about—putting your nose to the grindstone and being productive as possible, so you can get back on top of things and open up more time for fun later in the year!
Habits, health, and hygiene are all areas ruled by Virgo as well. You’re more in touch with your bodily functions (ew, I know) and connecting with what your body is telling you. If you’re sitting around all day and eating a bunch of crap, Virgo season’s energy is allowing you to notice that you’re feeling lazy and tired and bloated and all of those other yucky feelings, so you can get motivated to add a few vegetables or sleep more than four hours a night. You can feel more nervous tension, fatigue, or restlessness during Virgo season if you’re not taking care of yourself, which drives you to fiiiinally go to that yoga class you keep putting off.
Since Virgo is the most critical sign, it’s easy to get lost in the details and hone in on everything that’s going wrong in your life, like when you woke up this morning and all you could stare at in the mirror was that Dr. Pimple Popper-worthy zit on your face, and couldn’t stop thinking about it. All. Day. Long. But all of the stuff you’re noticing right now is just Virgo season working its magic—it’s helping you decide what it is you don’t like going on, so you can take care of it in a practical way. Do you hate that pimple? Do some research online (Virgos looooove to learn).
It’s soooo easy to get stuck running in mental circles because you’re so overwhelmed by everything that seems so wrong in your life right now, but instead of looking at all of the mess as a monster you have to fight to the death, break it up into tiny pieces and take it on one small task at a time.
Got it? Great! Get out there and knock ‘em dead—you’re doing amazing, sweetie! But first, read your horoscopes below:
Invest in a planner—you need it now more than ever. Of all the signs, yours is probs doing the absolute most during Virgo season. You’re working way more, working out way more, and using up every last bit of your inner Aries fire to get everything done! It’s gonna be cuh-razy, but at least you’ll be so gd busy that it’ll be over before you know it!
With the Sun in your fellow earth sign now, your romantic side is coming out to play and your sex life is burning up! If you’re boo’d up, expect way more action and more date nights than you can keep track of! If you’re single, this is the month where you’re most likely to find your next crush or relationship—or, at the very least, you’re having tons of thrilling hookups! Also, the excitement and fun of this transit is multiplied by, like, a billion because Venus, planet of love, is hanging out in Virgo now, too!
You’re feeling more introverted now and more focused on stuff at your house and with your family, not so much the outside world. A Gemini being a homebody? Shocking, I know! You’re always on the go, hanging out with someone and meeting new friends, but when you’re living with your head in the clouds all day, life back here down on earth gets a little out of hand, so this month is helping you ground yourself, make sure your home life is operating well, and work on any other major foundations in your life so that you can get back to living it up air sign style once Libra season rolls around!
We all have that one friend (probs the Virgo in your squad, TBH) who you can text an entire paragraph spilling tea and all they send back is “*you’re.” Basically, Virgo season is doing that to you, but all month long. Every faux pas, typo, and slip of the tongue is standing out way more—dw, it’s mostly only standing out to you—because all of this nitpicky Virgo energy is in your chart’s zone of communication. You’re feeling more mentally organized and better at getting your point across when you’re speaking, which also boosts your flirting abilities, just sayin’! You’re really getting out of your shell, too, because this month is also about making new connections and meeting new people!
Virgo season’s vibes are warming up your chart’s zone of finances and possessions for the next month, so the best way you can use this astrological ten-second tidy is to clean house, throw away all of the clothes you don’t wear, toss your old makeup, and try to find a place to organize all of the stuff you own. It’s also a good time to work on your spending habits—it’s in your favor to pull up your bank statement so you can see where all of your cash is running off to (hint: it’s probs related to the Postmates feast you order after every shift at work). You’re getting these areas of your life organized AF this month, and you’ll be surprised at how much time and money you saved by the end of it all!
Happy birthday, Virgo! Whenever the Sun is in your sign, it means that the rest of the world operates more like you do. This Virgo season, there’s a stellium in Virgo—AKA three or more planets in one sign making pretty much everyone vibe super hard with you. What are your personal goals at work, at home, with your friends, and with your love life? Virgo season is all about you being able to pinpoint these goals and doing whatever it takes to get what you want! It was a long Leo season, but the spotlight’s on you now, so you’re living your best life and having a kickass time all month!
Virgo season is like a month-long siesta to help you recover from the month long fiesta of Leo season. That’s not to say you’re lazing around and literally napping all month long—sorry, no one’s safe from being busy AF during Virgo season—but you’re spending more of your time alone, doing your own thing. Virgo season’s energy is in your chart’s 12th house, which is all about isolation, the unconscious, and the completion of cycles, so you’re getting more in touch with your habits, subconscious behavior, and any self-defeating patterns you act out without even knowing. This is a deeply intuitive and emotional month, so try to relax, meditate, write in a dream journal, and learn to enjoy being alone. It’ll be over before you know it—Libra season is just around the corner!
You’re feeling pretty social this month! Every day, your friends have another party or event or some other type of Thing to drag you off to, and you’re actually having fun! You’re meeting plenty of new people this month and getting to know a variety of new faces, which, again, is pretty unusual for your kinda introverted nature. You’re not going to end up being besties with all these new people, but by the end of Virgo season, your social circle’s looking waaaaay bigger than it did when the month first started!
Just like everyone else this month, you’re working your ass off big time for pretty much all of Virgo season. Luckily, you’re the sign most likely to get huge results of your effort, because Virgo season’s energy is in your chart’s zone of career and reputation! This is a great time to ask for a raise or a promotion, because you’re shining so much on the job that everyone—you, your coworkers, your boss, the customers, EVERYONE—can see that you really, really deserve it! You’re not going to become the CEO of a Fortune 500 company in the next few weeks or anything (unless you actually do, in which case, yay!) but you’re defs making serious strides this month!
In your chart, all of this Virgo energy is occupying the ninth house, which rules areas of life like travel and education. So, if you’re a student, Virgo season is obviously working its magic at school, but if you’re not in class anymore, you’re still benefiting from this energy by learning a ton! Even if you don’t have any last minute summer vacays planned, this is the best time of the year to drive up to the beach or somewhere fun! You’re meeting new people, soaking in tons of knowledge from all of the experiences you’re having, and basically broadening your horizons all month long.
Virgo season’s vibes are activating your chart’s eighth house, which rules over bills, taxes, intimacy, and “other people’s money.” Surprises with your finances can happen now, so don’t be caught off guard when you check the mail and there’s a huge check from a family member or an old job—but also, don’t be surprised if a late fee knocks you flat on your ass because you kept forgetting to pay your bills. You’re also learning about yourself through your closest, deepest bonds, so it can be a pretty emotional time—but also, a pretty sexy time since you’re spending more time getting it on with your boo!
This month is all about relationships for you, especially since Venus is in Virgo for the next few weeks, too! You’re always with your bestie or your boo, and there’s rarely a day where you don’t have something fun planned with somebody. If you’re single, this is a good time to get back in the game and go on a few dates, because, duh, this is the month for relationships for your sign!
