Virgo Horoscope for Sun Signs, Moon Signs and Rising Signs

Virgo's 2020 Astrological Assignment 

2020 eclipses in Sagittarius trigger new honesty, and this honesty encourages us to restructure the systems of power while Saturn and Jupiter conjunct Pluto in Capricorn. By the end of 2020, Jupiter and Saturn enter Aquarius and empower us to integrate an authentically collaborative philosophy.

We can hear a clue to our assignment in this great work through the signs of our Sun and Ascendant.

You have a rich and thoughtful philosophy; reassess it, and bring it home. Critique, but stay focused on the healing goals, both in your personal life and the world at large.

Walk your talk in daily life, and find your relationships to animals and beloveds become more clear, clean and energizing.

Your creativity is strong, but needs you to choose discipline; give it time to manifest, and do if for the sake of all. 

Sun sign in Virgo attributes

Harvest and organize. It's time to harvest our burgeoning gardens and harness our minds, time to bring our focus to work, learning and healing under the Mutable Earth Virgo Sun.

The mood is mercurial, intelligent, nervous, multi-tasking; we need to add confidence, heart, and focus. 

If you're born under the Virgo Sun:

Your discriminating mind and sensitive systems are your gift and challenge.

Born with sensitive antennae, empathy, profound mind-body connection, and an ability to see what improvements needs doing, you're challenged to appreciate the perfection and contentment underneath all.

What if My Moon Sign is in Virgo?

Those born under a Virgo Moon are nature's critics, surgeons, editors, coyotes and healers. Brilliant and articulate, they can be hard on themselves and others until they see the perfection within each soul and movement. 

Our Natal Moon sign describes what makes us feel at home, how we process emotion, and how we handle our daily life. 

Moon in Virgo Daily Mood

Assess, analyze, organize, under the intelligent and perceptive Virgo Moon. It's time to heal, weed, edit, and discern. The vibe is thoughtful, sensitive, health-oriented, compassionate and particular; we need to keep our eyes not on what we want to throw away, but what we want to keep and nurture.

Virgo starts during the end of Summer, leading us gently towards the heavy preparation of harvest and wintertime. The Glyph can be viewed as maiden holding a plant, possibly corn or wheat. 

Other interpretations of the Glyph exist, some saying the M, stand for Maiden with the tail crossing inward representing virginity.

Virgo In Nature

We draw near to a seasonal shift, meaning lots of hard work and preparation are ahead of us in Virgo season. Plants are fruiting and readying themselves for their final harvest of the summer.

The days are long and many of us may find ourselves working long hours to take advantage of the sunlight. This is also a great time to relish in the beauty that nature offers.

The landscape is still alive with heat, growth and sunlight, and fruits. We want to enjoy these gifts while they are offered. 

Time of Day

Virgo rules the late afternoon, when the shadows of the sun are getting longer, and the light grows sweet and golden. The day is almost done and we work hard to finish our daily tasks. Games are being finished in the yard, construction projects outsides are hurried to achieve a stopping point before nightfall. 

Virgo rules the gut, intestines, nervous system and the digestive process.

Being connected with the plant kingdom, it is only natural that Virgo rules the internal flora of our digestive system. Our body starts to sort and organize nutrients. Sending them to their respective paths through our body.

Our gut holds our enteric nervous system, often known as our "gut instinct." It's only fitting that the mulit-tasking queen with sharp as nails rules these body parts. 

If you have a Planet in Virgo:

The planets within our solar system have a specific part to play in the complete knowledge of "The Self." Planets represent different aspects of our self-journey or even our personality.

They're characteristics range from our soul purpose (sun), how we think or love (Mercury, Venus) how we like to learn (Jupiter) our limitations (Saturn), and much more! Please visit our blog "Journey into Astrology" if you would like to know more about Planets and how to integrate them into your daily astrology practice. 

Planets in Virgo love to work hard, especially for the greater good. These aspects of yourself will be meticulous, organized and have a hidden methodology to their madness. Planets in Virgo tend towards perfectionism and self-sufficiency. Remember it's ok to ask for help!

Virgo Rules the Sixth House of Astrology

“The Houses (twelve pie shaped sections) of our personal birth chart attend to all areas of our life. Each house represents a basic facet of human experience from birth to death.”

The placement of each house in your natal chart is dependent on your rising sign. A person with an Aries rising has what is called a “natural chart”. A rising sign is the sign ascending on the eastern horizon on the time of your birth, it can be calculated using a rising sign calculator here!

Our Sixth House offers up self-improvement through practical work, service to others and disciplined training. Attend to the health and maintenance of yourself and your community. Learn skillful techniques to sort the wheat of life from the chaff.

Virgo is ruled by Mercury 

Both Virgo and Gemini are ruled by Mercury. Both of these signs are known for their wit, sharpness of mind and ability to learn quickly, all of these very Mercurial traits. 

We are offered to see a different side of Mercury through Virgo. Analysis, crafting, work and acts of service shine out through Mercury in Virgo. Virgo in Mercury is truly at home in the written word. 

Mercury is "The Thinker," and involves our communication skills: what we say, our words, our voice, and our thoughts, including the Teacher/Student, Master/Apprentice mode. Mercury affects how we connect with all the media tools of the day—our computers, phones, and even the postal publishing and recording systems.
