Virgo Season for the Signs

We leave the uninhibited drama of fixed-fire Leo season, we switch it up for mutable-earth Virgo.

Virgo’s symbol is the Virgin, but it’s important that we reexamine what this word was intended to mean. It originates from the Greek word for “maiden not attached to a man,” in other words, a woman unto herself. The “Virgin” goddesses (Diana, Athena, Ishtar, Isis) were called such because they were powerful, strong, and independent in their own right. The word Virgin elicits the concepts of purity, perfection, purpose. This is the true essence of Virgo.

Virgo’s ultimate desire is personal transformation. They are equipped with an innate capacity to envision the ideal – but then, they compare everything and everyone (including themselves) against that ideal. There is a strong emphasis on efficiency, analysis, and responsibility wherever Virgo lies in our charts, and a desire to reach that ideal by means of a practical, orderly, and detailed approach.

Leo’s roar is ego-driven, and so is Virgo’s, to an extent. But now, there is another critical element: the desire to be of service. Virgos are known to work hard in the background for the benefit of others, in order to offer a gift to the world. No wonder they can be so hard on themselves: this is a huge responsibility, after all, and Virgo does not take it lightly!

It is no coincidence that September’s back-to-school and back-to-business vibes align with Virgo season. In the Wheel of the Year, our agrarian ancestors would be in the throes of harvest season, and discerning which crops to pick and which to leave on the vine, which to eat now and which ti preserve, is a very detail-oriented, hard-work, analytical task. We are likely doing the same in our lives - paring down the social and happy-go-lucky activities of Leo season for the focus of fall.

How we each interact with the energy of Virgo season is highly individual (see below for sign-specific horoscopes). No matter the sign, this is an ideal time to make health changes, organize our resources, and prepare for the winter to come.
