From August 22nd to September 22nd, the Sun will be dancing in the sign of responsible Virgo. Happy birthday, Virgo! It’s your time to shine, and the best time of the year to celebrate your unique personality! After moving through the fiery sign of Leo, we’re ready to experience the grounded, hard-working, and fastidious energy of the Virgo Sun.

As the Sun moves through each sign throughout the year, we spend about a month soaking in and experiencing the energy that each specific sign brings.

When the Sun is in Virgo, you can expect a deeper connection to Mother Nature, a greater concern for physical health, and a heightened ability to pay attention to detail. As an Earth sign, Virgo encourages hard work and a sensible nature.

Have you been waiting all year for your season to finally hit, Virgo? Today we’re going to explore the things we love about Virgo energy, as well as what you can expect during the Virgo season.

Let’s take a look at the strengths and weaknesses of Virgo energy to start off.

Virgo Strengths

Virgo is one of the most organized and orderly signs of the zodiac. With a keen attention to detail, Virgo is able to focus on tedious or time-consuming tasks with ease and grace.

Have you been meaning to organize your room, your whole home, or even your car? Virgo makes these tasks feel like a piece of cake.

This sign is practical and focused, easing you into a sensible state of mind. It’s easier to detach from your emotions when the Sun is in Virgo because you’re focused on practicality and goals.

Virgo is also a sign of service. Virgos love to help their fellow man and do what they can to be helpful to those they care for. As a natural nurturer of the zodiac, Virgo’s energy encourages you to not only spend more time with your loved ones, but to also be there for them emotionally and physically.

While Leo’s energy may have urged you to focus on yourself, Virgo reminds you to think of others as well!

As an Earth sign, Virgo also promotes thoroughness and a steady pace. Leo may have amplified your passion and energy, making you feel more impulsive and quick-to-act. However, Virgo reminds you to take your time and finish your work carefully.

Virgo Season Areas for Growth

Every sign in the zodiac has their own weaknesses, and Virgo is no exception.

This sign is prone to overthinking and worry, the more extreme versions of paying attention to detail. You may get too caught up in the details when the Sun is in Virgo, and it can feel impossible to let go of a certain thought or concern that has your attention.

Virgo is also a sign of perfectionism, and it may urge you to revamp your work over and over again until you find no flaws.

While this can be good for certain projects, it can also hold you back from creativity and the effortless flow of your talent. Try not to focus on perfectionism or you may become obsessed with the idea. Remember that flaws are sometimes the best part of a person or a project – try to find the beauty in them.

This zodiac sign likes order, perhaps too much.

Virgo likes to put a plan in place and stick to it, which may not leave very much room for fluidity or a go-with-the-flow attitude. Virgo’s energy can be rigid, making it feel difficult to relax and enjoy the moment – especially when the moment isn’t thoroughly planned and properly executed. It may be difficult, but you’ll have to remind yourself to lighten up during this time.

What to Expect During Virgo Season

Now that we’ve learned more about the traits that make Virgo such a unique sign, let’s focus on what you can expect during the Virgo season.

The Hermit

Virgo is represented by the Hermit card in the Tarot, a card that is associated with time spent alone. While Leo season may have encouraged you to be social and put yourself out there, Virgo season challenges you to spend time with yourself in solitude, focusing on topics and ideas that help you rediscover the beauty of solitude.

Spending time on your own can help you reconnect to your own nature and learn more about what you want in life. A time of being a recluse allows you to re-evaluate your life and re-frame your current goals and objectives.

The Maiden

Virgo is depicted by the symbol of the Maiden, who is typically holding a type of harvest or bundle of wheat. This symbol represents the caring, generous nature of Virgo, who loves to host and entertain their guests.

Virgo’s excessive attention to detail comes in handy when hosting a dinner party or family night. You will leave no stone unturned, making sure that each appetizer, game, movie, or activity is aligned with a specific theme. No one leaves a Virgo party with an empty stomach or a frown.

While most of the world is still practicing social distancing, this may be a great time for a socially-distanced, outdoor gathering with a small group of your favorite people. Be safe, wear your masks, and have fun with your loved ones.

The Big Picture

When the Sun is in Virgo, we are more likely to sweat the small stuff. All of this heightened attention to detail can make it feel impossible to focus on the big picture – but it’s crucial that you try. When you obsess over the little things, it’s harder to see everything that is beautiful and running smoothly in your life.

These obsessive thoughts amplify anxiety, and if you don’t find a way to combat them with positivity and trust, you may become a nervous wreck! It can feel difficult, but you’ll have to learn to let things go this month.

Practicing gratitude can help you reconnect with the big picture, allowing you to concentrate on your accomplishments, your health, and your happiness. Don’t let yourself get caught in a cycle of overthinking and ruminating this Virgo season.

Repeat after us: “Don’t sweat the small stuff.”

Hard Work

This is the time to get things done, whether you’re a Virgo or not. When the Sun transits through Virgo, we’re filled with a surge of energy that encourages us to put down the TV remote and get to work – even during a challenging year like this one.

While many of our normal routines have been disrupted, this is still the perfect time to start moving towards your goals and dreams.

All of this productive energy makes you feel like you can conquer the world, but don’t forget to take time for rest and relaxation. If you don’t allow your mind and body to recuperate from the stress you’re putting on it, you may become emotionally exhausted or physically burnt out.

So, appreciate the productive energy, but try to maintain a balance.

Clear Communication

For nearly all of Virgo season, Mercury will be in the fiery sign of Leo, amplifying Virgo’s ability to be direct when confronting or conversing with others. Mercury is the planet of communication, and it takes on energy from whatever sign it’s passing through.

Virgo is not a sign that is shy about sharing thoughts and ideas, and Leo’s feisty energy further encourages this clear, open, and honest communication.

When the Sun is in Virgo, you’ll feel more confident about sharing potentially uncomfortable truths, desires, or setting boundaries. And when Mercury is in Leo, this confidence is amplified.

Just remember to be gentle and compassionate when giving someone constructive criticism, as a blunt approach can seem negative or hurtful. Blue kyanite is an excellent stone to work with because it connects to all seven of the body’s major chakras, but it has a special connection with the Throat chakra.

Hold a piece of blue kyanite in your left hand or place it in your left pocket when you need to have a serious conversation, as it will remind you to practice compassion and understanding.

Health & Wellness

Virgo is associated with the 6th house, the House of Health. This House connects to our immediate environment, including our homes, work environment, family, and even pets. While the Sun moves through Virgo, you may feel a sudden, overwhelming urge to focus on boosting your immune system and stretching your limbs.

Most of us have struggled with our diets and health habits this year, making this the perfect month to start tackling your fitness goals. Virgo’s energy makes it easier than ever to find the focus and productive energy that will help you get back on track, and feel healthier than you have in years.

However, don’t forget to treat yourself from time to time!

Intimate Moments

Virgos are service-oriented and relationship-focused individuals. While they do have certain expectations for themselves and others, the high standards Virgos hold stem from compassion and caring. They want to see their loved ones flourish, and they’re willing to do whatever they can to help them get there.

While the Sun transits through this caring sign, you’ll feel the desire to lift your friends, family members, and colleagues up. You want to see those around you gathering success and confidence, and you’ll make a great cheerleader for your loved ones during this time.

To get the most out of this loving energy, practice activities that clear the mind and body of negativity, like yoga and meditation. When you approach your relationships from a positive state, it’s easier for you to avoid being overly critical.

Crystals for Virgo Season

To truly get the most out of Virgo season, try working with crystals that align with the giving, caring, responsible energy of this sign.


Amazonite is a grounding stone that helps eliminate the obsessive, worrying energy that often accompanies Virgo season.

Hold a piece of amazonite in your left hand, close your eyes, and breathe deeply. Now imagine worry, fear, and anxiety leaving your body and being absorbed by the healing stone in your left palm.


Amethyst is known for its ability to increase self-control and willpower. In this case, amethyst helps you avoid overworking yourself or becoming too analytical. The soothing energy of amethyst brings balance to your emotional state during this time.

Green Aventurine

Green aventurine is known as the Stone of Opportunity, as it manifests abundance and attracts new opportunities into your life. With all the hard work you’ll be doing this Virgo season, this is one of the best stones to help your dreams and goals come to fruition.

Place green aventurine on top of your manifestation list to amplify the abundant energy in your life.

Embrace the Energy of Virgo

Whether you’re a Virgo yourself or not, this can be a season of productivity, increased health, and amplified intimacy. You’ll get the most from Virgo season by embracing every aspect of this energy, including the more challenging facets. While you may experience a hint of Virgo anxiety, you can enjoy the boost of energy that comes with it.

While Virgo enjoys stability and routine, it is also a Mutable sign, which are signs known for their ability to go with the flow.

This mentality will help you take on any challenges or surprises that may flow your way during Virgo season. You don’t have to force anything right now – simply trust in the Universe and ride the waves of change.

Enjoy every delicious moment of this season, because this energy only comes around once a year. Embrace the energy of Virgo season to begin moving towards your goals and dreams today!
