Virgo season officially begins on August 23rd, with the Sun's ingress.
From August 23rd to August 26th, the Sun will be within orb of a conjunction to Jupiter (at 3 deg Virgo), adding power to Jupiter's significant influence. The Sun can be a trigger for potential, felt by 0 to 3 degrees of the Mutable signs. This is a powerful, pointed influence that may spotlight a significant detail, problem or solution.
Virgo's got a lot of action over the next while, and much of it goes beyond Virgo season. On September 13th there's a New Moon eclipse (20 degrees Virgo) opposing Chiron Rx in Pisces. Mars enters Virgo on September 24th. Venus reenters Virgo (after her Rx in Leo) on October 8th. And the transiting North Node enters Virgo (South Node into Pisces) on November 11th.
I'll write separate posts about these events. But I wanted to give you a heads up, because this area of your chart is going to be activated. Something in that area is ripe for development, or needs to be fixed. Jupiter (opportunity) plus the North Node (path forward) in Virgo mean that it will be to your benefit to cultivate this sign's qualities. Discrimination, healing, improvement, detailed work, and work in general.
If I had to sum this up in one phrase, it would be "pay attention." Virgo is hyper-alert and misses nothing. Mind you, where your attention is focused will be crucial. There will be very little margin for error, and zero tolerance for sloppiness. If you don't get it right, keep trying. But whatever you do, don't give up or slack off. Virgo demands that you be fully present and focused on the task at hand.
Virgo is having its time in the sun. It will be the sweet spot for many, if they're prepared to do what needs to be done, in order to make things better. Yes, Virgo will have to deal with the square from Saturn in Sag, and the ongoing opposition from Neptune and Chiron in Pisces. But I think Jupiter and the North Node will give this sign an edge. Despite the upcoming challenges, the way forward is in Virgo.
Here are the aspects the Sun in Virgo will make:
- August 26th: conjunct Jupiter (3 deg)
- August 31st: opposite Neptune Rx in Pisces (8 deg)
- September 5th: trine Pluto Rx in Capricorn (13 deg)
- September 12th: opposite Chiron Rx in Pisces and inconjunct Uranus Rx in Aries (19 deg)
- September 13th: New Moon eclipse (20 deg)
- September 23rd: enters Libra
