Virgo: The grounding, motherly earth sign. Often represented as the Plant Kingdom.
She fosters organization, activism, mothering and family. Mercurial, curious, critical and engaged. The mood sharpens our minds and nerves, and sends us back to work.

In 2021, your carefully planned routines will be overthrown by our celestial friends Saturn and Jupiter. If you let your day-to-day life be overhauled, you will uncover a deeper, more authentic connection to yourself and the work you do in the world.
This might be as simple as changing your healthcare regiment. The point is to spend some times pampering yourself, Virgo. Use affirmations to bolster your self-esteem. Recognize the gifts you bring to the world. Focus on yourself rather than others a bit more.
This may involve finding a new job, starting a creative project at home, broadening your connection with the world to decrease tendencies to burn-out.
Do you need to take on more responsibilities at work, or is it time to back off and focus more on your private life? It's time to be sure your livelihood is synchronized with your personal values.
As you simmer on these changes, be ready to take action in August and September when a burst of energy will help you take advantage of opportunities to expand your sphere of influence.
As the dust settles, you may realize a trade-off between having fewer physical resources but more time, or alternatively, that there are not more resources to contribute to your ideals.
Listen for harmony as you learn to balance material needs with ethics and aspirations.

We have work to do this year. We may have to rethink our whole philosophy and approach in some quadrant of our life to bring it into line with our present understanding.
Then take action.
Read your Sun sign, Moon sign, and ascendant. Your ascendant points to the practical components where work needs to be done, the Sun to the evolution of your core personality, and the Moon to where you're challenged to stretch your heart.

Goals and Challenges for Virgo
Investigate the relationship of your feelings and daily habits with the subtle gauge of your health; make sure your habits honestly support you.
Find direct and conscious ways to listen to your emotional wisdom before it signals to you through your body.
As you drop habits of anxiety, walk your talk on health, and create a more spacious, integrated attitude; a new and freeing sense of partnership can arise.

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.
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.

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.
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.

What is a rising sign you ask? The rising sign is the sign that was present on the horizon at the time of your birth. It sits similarly on your birth chart on this horizon line, or equatorial line in your chart on the left or east side of your chart.
Do calculate your rising sign, you'll need to know the exact time of your birth, once you know along with your geographic location, you can visit many sites and receive a free birth chart, here is one of our staff favorites.
Your sun sign represents your core personality, and the qualities of our outward shining self. Your moon sign reflects qualities of your inner core self, or emotional self.
Rising sign is your outlook on the world and first impression you give to others.
Rising sign also dictates where the Astrological Houses lay within your chart.
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
Virgo ascendants view the work compatementaly, they like to organize their world and those around them. A practical sign, they are rational and find creative ways to use their skills.
Virgo rising often find sense of worth through a skill or purpose, they are highly motivated and love a big job ahead of them. They have an urge for service and may be drawn to community service work, and can be very loving and mothering to those in need.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!

“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.

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.

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