2020 has been, well...not great...but hopefully you’ve been able to do some fun stuff over the past few weeks with Leo season (aka party season). On August 22, the Sun leaves Leo (its fave sign) and zooms into Virgo, where it stays until Libra season begins on September 22. Leo and Virgo have nothing in common. Virgo is one of the hardest-working signs of the zodiac. It’s logical, practical, and very matter-of-fact, so the vibe is changing, big time. The earth signs Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn are living it up this Virgo season, while the mutable signs Gemini, Sagittarius, and Pisces may struggle to keep up with the pace.

Here’s a quick astro-101 explainer on Virgo. It’s a mutable earth sign, ruled by Mercury, which in English means that it carries intellectual, logical, materialistic, and perfectionistic vibes—all vibes that you’re embodying while the Sun is in Virgo for the next month. Virgo is very no-nonsense about everything. This energy can come off as discriminating, critical, or hyper-focused on tiny details. But it’s also hard-working, through, careful, and excellent at problem-solving. Is Virgo the most exciting sign? Not really, TBH (sorry, Virgos!), but does know how to get things done! If you've been constantly swamped with work/chores/anything, Virgo season 2020 is here to get your life back on track!

Some of the problems you might bump into this Virgo season include overworking yourself, spending too much time on people's lives and neglecting to practice self-care, or coming off as too critical or cold. Virgo is the sign of service and duty, but your desire to help others can make you nit-picky, even if you don’t mean to be. Remind yourself to loosen up, be a little sensitive, and try to avoid giving unwanted advice.

Virgo season is the time of year to take any incomplete projects, assess whether they're still worth your time, and either cut your losses or finish them up. Leo season made fun your top priority, but Virgo season is saying, “okay, you’re a hot mess, time to tidy up, party’s over, let’s get down to business.” Hopefully, you’re ready for a busy, super productive month!

Oh, and one last thing—Mars, the planet of action, aggression, and libido, goes retrograde for the first time in about two years this Virgo season, on September 9. This means that any new projects are going to have trouble getting off the ground, and your energy levels are going to be depleted. Everyone will work hard this Virgo season, so it’s important that you take plenty of breaks.

As the Sun moves through Virgo, it’s illuminating a part of your birth chart, signifying that that one area of life is your primary focus for the next month.

ARIES

Hey, Aries, do me a favor and re-read this post. Basically, you're feeling all of the Virgoan themes of working hard, busting your self, and getting things done especially hard. If you feel like you’re drowning in work, it’s because your day-to-day routine needs to get fixed. If you’re tired all the time, try going to bed at a decent hour and eating something nutritious instead of living off Postmates and bagel bites. Virgo season is pushing you to take care of your professional responsibilities and your own mental and physical wellbeing. Libra season is coming up next, which means that your love life is going to get more active and exciting. Take time now to work on being the very best version of yourself so you and your crush/FWB/partner can have a great time together in the future!

TAURUS

You’re in your element right now, Taurus—literally, because Virgo season’s like-minded earth sign vibes are harmonizing beautifully with your own. You’re working hard, but you’re also focusing on who/what you love. Your chart’s fifth house, which governs romance, creativity, and fun, is being activated, so you’re really living it up! If you want to spice up your love life, finding romance (or a hot hookup) has never been easier. If you’re not worried about all that, then this is a great time to figure out what you’re passionate about and spend a ton of time doing just that. It may be Virgo’s time of year, but TBH, you’re having a grand ol’ time this month!

GEMINI

Life at home is about to get much busier, Gemini. If you live alone, you might need to fix up a broken down appliance or reorganize your space. If you’re living with roomies, you’re spending way more time with them. No matter your living situation, you’re also connecting with your family way more. You’ll probs be shocked by how much you feel like you have to do, all without leaving the house! Carry on and take care of whatever needs to be done, and whenever you’re not working, take as much R&R time as you need to keep your batteries fully charged.

CANCER

Virgo is ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication (which BTW, also happens to be in Virgo right now), and this Virgo season’s vibes are lighting up your chart’s zone of communication. So basically, expect your phone to be blowing up constantly, tons and tons of emails to come pouring into your inbox, and your schedule to fill up endless phone calls/Zoom meetings/FaceTime talks. You're busy, but you’re still having a pretty decent time! This is a great time for connecting with both old friends and new faces. There are more hotties sliding into your DMs, your social life is thriving, and a potential new friend is around every corner, so you can expect a nice (though very fast-pasced) Virgo season!

LEO

All of Virgo season’s hard-working, meticulous, industrious vibes are giving your chart’s second house a huge glow up. Since the second house governs finances, you can expect your job to become a much bigger focus! Take any long-term projects you’ve been working on, finish them up, and turn them in. If you’ve been working hard at something—a job, a relationship, a personal goal—but not really getting much out of it, you can truly determine if it’s a waste of time and get rid of it now, too. As you keep pushing yourself, crossing all things off your to-do list, and making moves in the professional world this month, you can expect the rewards to start coming your way in the form of a bonus, a raise, or even a promotion!

VIRGO

It's your season, Virgo, and you’re soaking up the spotlight. Think about what matters to you—is it your relationship? Your job? Your family? A hobby? Whatever it may be, you can focus on your goals and make major moves towards bringing your dreams to life. You’re expressing yourself easily now, coming off as more charismatic, and feeling more “seen” by others around you. There’s way more “good” astro-weather than there is “bad” this Virgo season, so live it up! Happy birthday!

LIBRA

Virgo season is very “meh” for your sign, Libra. Any time there’s cosmic action in the sign before yours (so, Virgo), it activates your chart’s twelfth house, which governs loneliness, isolation, and the completion of cycles. You’re working hard, but don’t expect to get much recognition or praise do. You might feel like nobody is paying any kind of attention to you. But this time of year is designed for you to work on yourself and clear out baggage from old jobs, projects, and relationships that may be holding you down. Clear out all that from your past that no longer serves you, and free up your life for new, exciting things. When Libra season rolls around in a month, you can celebrate your birthday as the best version of yourself possible!

SCORPIO

Get ready for your social life to start thriving, Scorpio! Virgo season marks a month where your chart’s eleventh house, which governs social circles, is being lit up by the Sun. Your group chat is poppin’, your bestie is spilling major tea, you’re getting along with your whole crew, and you're making new connections (not really romantic ones though, sry). You and Virgo are pretty similar signs, y'know. You’re both attentive to detail, critical, and (sometimes) judgmental. You don’t easily let new people into your life, because you want to absolutely be 110% positive that they’re not being fake or shady. Virgo season’s vibes are helping you to be even more intuitive and attentive with others. You’re almost guaranteed to add a few new faces to your friend group this Virgo season, and thanks to the compatible vibes between Virgo and Scorpio, you can be confident that the new friendships you start will have a ton of lasting value.

SAGITTARIUS

Of all the signs in the zodiac, yours is probably feeling the most pressure during this Virgo season. You hate to see it, I know, but you’re doing work that matters. Big projects for your job are reaching a climax, you’re being thrust into the spotlight, and it’s all eyes on you! Show up to do your best every day, and a serious bonus, raise, or even a potential promotion could be in your future. Those higher up on the corporate ladder are keeping a close eye on your progress. Act wisely, because your shortcomings will be noticed just as much as your progress.

CAPRICORN

The theme of the next month is “adventure,” Capricorn. This could mean finding the opportunity to safely travel, or broadening your mental horizons by taking a class, picking up a hobby, or binge-watching Netflix docs. Basically, you’re learning that there’s a lot of truth behind the saying, “you learn something new every day.” Every conversation, every new connection, everything you do for work, and everything spend time on at home can be a learning moment or an experience. It’s just up to you to make sure it’s a good one!

AQUARIUS

K, so, this is a complicated time of year for you. Virgo season’s influence is activating your chart’s eighth house, which governs intimacy (spicy!) and “other people’s money,” AKA inheritances, taxes, and bills (boo!). If you’re single and just looking for a fling, be careful, because catching feels is practically guaranteed rn. As far as “other people’s money” goes, this can be exciting if you get some extra cashola sent your way, but it might be a reeeeaaaal downer if a surprise bill comes in the mail!

PISCES

Virgo season can easily = cuffing season for you, Pisces. Your chart’s seventh house, which governs relationships, is being lit up right now. It’s a great time to take your FWB/someone you’ve been casually dating/situationship and finally DTR! If you’re happily taken, this month contains plenty of opportunities for relationship-building activities with your boo. This transit doesn’t solely apply to your love life, though. Your focus now is on all of your “b” relationships—your bestie, your boo, your business partners, and the people you’re beefing with. You’re able to enjoy your social life, your relationship, and life at work, but try to remember to take time for yourself, bb! Virgo season’s influence makes you a hard worker, especially when it comes to helping others, and since this whole month is focused on the “others” in your life, it’s easy to get burned out. Find a balance between “me time” and living it up with your friends/S.O., and you can navigate this Virgo season with ease.
