As the leaves begin to change colors and the sunlight grows shorter, we enter Virgo season, the transitional period between summer and fall. Virgo is a mutable zodiac sign that is quite familiar and comfortable with change. Sure, Virgo prefers to know what to expect, but even more so, Virgos like the opportunity to adapt and improve their surroundings. We’ve had our fair share of carefree fun and play during Leo season, and now it’s time to prepare for the cooler months in front of us.
Contrary to popular belief, Virgo season isn’t all about organizing. Is it a great time to go through your closet? Absolutely. But truly Virgo energy is about distilling information down to only what’s necessary, and this can be useful to us in so many different ways. Consider an emotional purge—what’s been holding you back? What behaviors are you ready to refine and what habits are you ready to kick? Virgo season is about making improvements to become the best versions of ourselves. Virgos can always see the highest potential in someone or in a situation. Their unparalleled attention to detail is their magick.
During Virgo season, the planets will be harmonizing with Uranus and Pluto, some of the more challenging planets in the sky. As planets connect with these outer-planet giants, lessons will be integrated, so rapid internal growth can take place. We are making changes for the better. Let’s see what 2021’s Virgo zodiac season has in store for us. But first, you’ll want to make the most of these upcoming magical dates.

The Most Positive Dates of Virgo Season 2021
August 23: Venus in Libra trine Saturn in Aquarius
It may be Virgo season, but Venus is happiest when in Libra. When the planet of art, beauty, creativity, and love moves through balanced Libra, it’s a home and comfortable. These areas of our lives receive a magical boost, and we may find ourselves lost in beauty tutorials, redecorating our living room, or with a paintbrush in hand. It’s hard to ignore our creative impulses. When Venus meets with Saturn, the planet of consistency and materialization, the air is full of bringing our artistic visions to life. What projects have you been daydreaming about? It’s time to take action and add a little extra beauty to your life.

August 26: Mercury in Virgo trine Pluto in Capricorn
Mercury is the magician in the sky and rules over all things magick. As one of the only planets that’s able to travel between worlds, Mercury is familiar with Pluto’s depth and intensity. When these two planets meet in a gentle and supportive trine, alchemy reigns supreme. We are processing what’s beneath, augmenting our beliefs, and internalizing and practicing the growth we’ve been hoping for. This is a wonderful period to change our thought process, the way we talk to ourselves, and to kick bad habits. Words are powerful, and when the planet of the mind meets the planet of power, there simply isn’t anything we can’t do if we put our mind to it.
September 6: New Moon in Virgo
This new moon is powerful beyond measure. It’s a healing lunation that will ask us to confront our darkest pains and to make a change. We are course-correcting during this new moon. The moon itself will form a gentle trine with Uranus in Taurus, urging us to break free of old patterns and daily habits. If something in our lives hasn’t been working for a while, well, let go and switch up your narrative. You are the author of your life. The Virgo moon is ruled by Mercury, which will be in the sign of Libra and forming a tense tug-of-war with Chiron, a symbol of our deepest pain. It will be hard to ignore our past pains and triggers can and most likely will be felt, but the moon’s aspect to Uranus will ask us to push through the pain in a new way. We aren’t sticking with old patterns and behaviors, we are improving ourselves. And that is magick at its finest.

September 14: Sun in Virgo opposite Neptune in Pisces
While today it wouldn’t be advisable to make important decisions or act rashly based on our emotional state, this planetary meet-up also encourages compassionate healing. The sun is representative of our life force and vitality, and when it’s opposite Neptune, an elusive planet that blurs and erodes, we can have less energy. While our physical energy may decrease, our mental world will be expanding. Neptune also governs spirituality and when it stands directly opposite the sun it’s hard to ignore our intuition. You may be hit with sudden insights or downloads, but heed caution. Today is a day about experiencing our thoughts. Let them pass by and reflect deeper. Not everything that comes up today will be what it seems. It will be up to you to discern what carries truth and what is an illusion. This is a magical day to get lost in art, mediate, or make a vision board. Time to listen to your subconscious.
September 20: Full Moon in Pisces
When we have a full moon in the twelfth and final zodiac sign, letting go and release feel a bit more meaningful. This full moon asks us to remove blocks and limiting beliefs. In traditional astrology, Pisces is ruled by Jupiter, a planet that governs our belief system. During this compassionate and loving lunation, Jupiter will be forming a sweet trine to Mercury in Libra. We are tasked with expanding our minds, vision, and creativity. What do we need to let go of in order to call in the next phase of ourselves and our life path? Physically donating items or removing clutter from your home is a simple way to make space for new opportunities on the horizon.
