Virgo Season – Many Happy Returns

It’s time to sort the wheat from the chaff & refine! Virgo is a Mutable Earth sign, able to manage various tasks. As the Seasons begin to shift from Summer to Autumn, Virgo represents a time where the Sun takes its foot off the gas a little for a milder climate.

Ruled by Mercury, those born under the sign of Virgo are able to intellectualise and make sense of their environment by discriminating between what works for them and what doesn’t. As a result of this they are able to refine and perfect whatever they are tasked to do. This makes them brilliant at editing, proofing and problem-solving.

Purification & Authenticity

Virgo’s are happy working for a bigger cause where they are able to assist in some way as they are a caring sign that like to help without necessarily feel the need to lead. Associated with purification and authenticity, during the Sun’s transit through Virgo you may find yourself particularly sensitive to the things that you eat and will be more in tune with your body. This is a great time to give your eating habits an overhaul and take up an exercise routine which helps to balance the body and the mind like Qi Gong or Yoga. Being Earthy and logical, Virgo leans toward intellectual pastimes, though they aren’t shy about rolling their sleeves up and getting their hands dirty. Gardening and working with the earth can be a good way for Virgo to reconnect with the Earth, and Virgo being ruled by Mercury are also very manually dexterous. Any activity requiring a sharp mind and nimble fingers will be something Virgo will find enjoyable – think rubix cube!
