The Sun In Virgo
Perfection is at an all-time high when the Sun is in meticulous Virgo!
This is a time when we'll say goodbye to the playful days of rambunctious Leo so that we can take life a bit more seriously. Sure, we'll all still be feeling the carefree summertime vibes, but the Virgo Sun shows us how to focus more on our work, our health, and how to make ourselves useful to society.
The Sun’s move into detail-oriented Virgo gives all of us a leg up on polishing our skills, getting organized, or doing any activities that require us to pay close attention. Get your work done. Then go for a run, get a deep tissue massage, and wind down with a good book and a glass of fine wine. Virgo is an Earth sign that values sensation and the best experiences in life.
Virgo doesn’t let anything go, which is a quality that is both invaluable and annoying. It’s great to have an eye for the smallest details, but if you’re double-checking someone else’s work, take it easy on them if you find fault, and you will, because the Sun is in Virgo!
Earthy Virgo finds comfort and security when surrounded by nature and wildlife, so get out to the country during the Virgo Sun. Such a serene setting will also calm Virgo’s overly anxious tendencies, and help you loosen up and relax. If you're staying around home, pick up a broom, a mop, and a new feather duster, because now is the perfect time to use that meticulous Virgo energy to get your home spotless.
Virgo can sometimes be too finicky, turning "perfect" into picky, which can be annoying and frustrating for others. Strive to loosen up a little and let a few things go. After all, not everything needs to be flawless. Sun in Virgo is an organized and practical period in which to get back to business after a few lighthearted months. It may not be all fun and games, but you will feel fantastic about how much you’ve accomplished.
Mercury In Virgo
Mercury’s move into Virgo begins a period when our minds are sharp, our speech becomes precise, and we’re able to communicate with others more efficiently. We aren’t interested in sugar-coating our words under this transit -- we want to cut through the clutter and get straight to the point.
Virgo is highly skilled at taking in tons of information and stripping out everything that’s not necessary. So while Mercury moves through Virgo, our power to analyze information becomes much stronger, which helps us communicate our thoughts in the clearest way possible.
Productivity is one of the biggest benefits of Mercury in Virgo. While it’s not the most fun transit, our opportunities to make real progress are huge. Instead of getting stuck in a trap of dead-end ideas or in conversations that seem to go in circles, we are intently focused on details and useful information, making this a time of great forward movement.
One thing we must be beware of during this transit is becoming hyper-critical. Discernment is a good thing, but during Mercury in Virgo we can be so focused on finding faults that we insult others or become frustrated by our own flaws. Refining the way we speak to others and conveying our opinions with tact is key with Mercury in this discriminating sign.
Mars In Virgo
Mars is the planet of "do" and Virgo is the sign of "do it efficiently." While Mars moves through Virgo, we’re able to figure out where to cut the fat in our work habits so that we can get things done as quickly as possible. Tasks will be handled more swiftly, giving us the time to develop or hone a skill.
Virgo rules the 6th House of Health and Self-Improvement, which means Mars in Virgo could be a time when many of us decide to join a gym, eat healthier, or take a closer look at our overall mental and physical health. And because Mars in Virgo loves routine, the plans you make during this time are more likely to stick.
Critical (Virgo) attacks (Mars) are a downside to this transit. It becomes easier for us to nitpick and express ourselves aggressively, because our bars are set so high. Tensions could boil over when we become frustrated by inefficiency or a lack of control. We may also find that we turn this need for perfection inward, becoming overly self-critical. By practicing patience and cutting others (and ourselves) some slack, we can avoid conflict during this period.
Instead of focusing on what others may be doing wrong, we should use this productive time to do positive things that require attention to detail. Mars in Virgo will help us balance our budgets, plan for the future, learn a new trade, job hunt, etc. There’s no better time for taking care of personal business or starting a project than Mars in Virgo!
