virgo Monthly Horoscope virgo

For the Month of: October 2021

Before October even gets underway, it is very significant to note that there will be a Mercury Retrograde for the majority of the calendar month. Mercury Retrograde, the third and final of 2021, began at the very end of September and will conclude on October 18th. Virgos should remain aware of Mercury Retrograde because Mercury is the ruling planet of Virgo. There is no reason to fear this transit, however, because as a Virgo you know how to prepare. This means that while you might feel Mercury slow down more than other signs (except for Gemini which is also ruled by Mercury), you may also be the best equipped to manage the transit. Mercury Retrogrades are an excellent time to review past work and reevaluate recent decisions. Don’t consider this as unproductive, but rather, as necessary to keep the project going. If you have to sign any papers or buy any new technology at this time, please triple-check the fine print and sleep on the decision for a night or two if you can. For Virgo Rising, the Mercury Retrograde is happening in the second Whole Sign house of finances. Again, try your best to wait out any money decisions till after the 18th.

On the 7th, Venus, the planet of love and pleasure, moves into Sagittarius. Sagittarius can be very spontaneous and adventurous. The fiery energy of Sagittarius along with the sensuality of Venus may find you particularly feisty in matters of love. Perhaps plan a fun date for you and your significant other? This energy will certainly support it. Furthermore, if you aren’t in a relationship, that doesn’t mean that you can’t plan a fun date for yourself! Make the plans and set the stage, whatever you’re feeling curious about at this time the Venus in Sagittarius will help inspire you into ways to explore it! 

There is a Full Moon in Aries on the 20th of October. Full Moons can bring a resolution to a matter that you’ve been working through, or it may be a good time to release whatever isn’t serving you. The Aries energy will help lead you with bravery to let go of whatever that may be. Make sure that before you take any action, that you are journaling your thoughts and thinking things through. Again, Virgo, being ruled by mercury, stays so grounded because the sign is gifted with the ability to process in a healthy way through words. Allow for the Full Moon to take you in the direction you are needing to go.
