The Sun moves into the Earth sign of Virgo on Saturday August 22nd. Virgo is ruled by the planet Mercury. In astrology, Mercury is the planet of communication, commerce, technology, intelligence and reason. Mercury is also the ancient Roman god of finance, communication and travel. Virgo is represented by the symbol and philosophy of “the virgin,” meaning that modesty, purity of motive and service are highly valued and cherished. The virgin symbol is typically a woman holding a piece of wheat which represents the industrialization of ideas and skills in order to sustain the world.
Virgos are usually very practical and realistic people. They are often reserved and restrained to a fault. Virgos are planners, perfectionists, detail-oriented and analytical. Because of these characteristics, Virgos are sometimes stereotyped as critical, judgemental, cold, unfeeling, high strung and stingy. These stereotypes are not necessarily untrue of Virgos, but they stem from much deeper, complex, and usually very reasonable traits like being good at saving money and being highly intellectual. Mother Teresa, Patsy Cline, Roald Dahl, Stephen King, Freddie Mercury, Margaret Sanger and Leo Tolstoy are just a few famous Virgos that exemplify the best traits of this Earth sign.
As we make our way back to reality from our fun and playful Leo Summers, Virgo helps us get back into the swing of the coming Autumn months focusing on important matters like school, career, goals and planning for the future. You will undoubtedly feel the need to take control of the many facets of your life and look for ways to become more efficient in everything you do. Embrace this energy and find that new flow! You may start to feel an inclination and motivation to old projects or things you’ve always wanted to do. Virgo season is a great time to start these new enterprises as planning, research, analysis and details are invaluable and essential during this month.
While being detail-oriented and judicious can be great qualities to exude, they can also keep people, especially Virgos, in their heads a little too much, easily blocking out the rest of the world. It’s very important to find the time to relax, unwind and engage in intentional self-care. Try not to get too caught up in the planning and the particulars of Virgo Season, because at the end of the day, there is only so much you can control.
