Have you ever heard people refer to “Virgo Season” but not been sure what it means?

Well, Virgo season starts when the sun moves into Virgo and a number of other personal planets join it during the month-long transit of the sun through Virgo.

Virgo is an earth sign and brings a grounded, organized, and healing energy but it can also manifest in perfectionism and being nit-picky and critical of those around you.

Best things to focus on during Virgo Season:

It’s time to take your focus inward after an expressive Leo season and to focus on your health and work routines as well as any physical healing your body needs. Virgo loves a good routine to follow to get oneself back on track!

Personal Planets in Leo:

Mercury – 30th July – 6th October 2023

Mercury moved into Virgo on the 30th of July and is spending a long time here due to Mercury retrograde. Mercury in Virgo brings an organized, focused, and routine approach to communications but you may find yourself feeling self-critical of your communication skills.

The best way to harness the Mercury in Virgo energy is to focus on being organized and following routines with your communications in order to express your sacred message – how can you be more consistent with your communications? 

Mars – 13th July-27th August 2023

Mars moved in Virgo in mid-July and brings a detailed-oriented and fastidious approach to taking action. Mars in Virgo can manifest in self-criticism or criticism of others or a level of perfectionism that is unproductive. The best way to harness Mars in Virgo is to ask yourself – how am I taking action that is of service to myself and others?

You might want to focus on enhancing your systems, optimizing your business processes, and dedicating some time and attention to planning and organization.

Virgo season is a very good time for me to focus on self-care and filling up my cup – it’s a lesson in sustainability and balance before then having the energy to show up anew as the planets pass over my Ascendant and into my first house where outward energy will be required!
