Your Cosmic Guide To Life: The Sun in Virgo

The Sun in Virgo

Your cosmic guide to life with the Sun in Virgo

Tarotcom Staff

Perfection will peak when the Sun is in meticulous Virgo from Aug. 23 to Sept. 22, putting an end to the playful days of the Sun in rambunctious Leo.

When the Sun moves into Virgo, it’s time to take life a bit more seriously. Sure, it’s still carefree summertime, but now it’s also time to focus more on our work, our health and how we can make ourselves useful to society.

Virgo is practical and detail-oriented, so this is also a good time to learn new skills, practice perfecting old skills, and for doing any activities that require paying close attention.

Those born from about August 19-25 were born on the Leo-Virgo cusp, and those born from about Sept. 19-25 were born on the Virgo-Libra cusp. Being born on the cusp simply means that you were born during the transition time between two zodiac signs, so you retain some qualities from each sign.

All that said, it’s also important to remember that you can have at least a little bit of fun while the Sun is in Virgo. You can work hard and strive for perfection, but take a break once in a while and remember not to judge yourself or others too harshly.

You can see what’s in store for your month ahead with a 30-day Astrology Forecast, but one thing’s for sure — no one is perfect!

Here’s how to make the most of that Virgo lifestyle:

What to do: Get your work done — perfectly. Then go for a run, get a massage and wind down with a good book and a glass of wine. Virgo is an Earth sign that values sensation and the best things in life, so make sure it’s a deep tissue massage and a very fine glass of wine.

What to say: “Let me double-check that.” Virgo doesn’t let anything go — a quality that is both invaluable and annoying. It’s great to have an eye for the smallest details, especially if you’re an editor or a mathematician. But if you’re double-checking someone else’s work, take it easy on them if you find fault — which you will, because the Sun’s in Virgo!

Where to go: Camping! Earthy Virgo finds comfort and security when surrounded by nature and wildlife, so get out to the country while the Sun’s in Virgo. Such a serene setting will also calm Virgo’s overly anxious tendencies and help you loosen up and relax.

What to wear: A cashmere cardigan and a comfy pair of shoes. Practical Virgo is most at home in luxurious yet comfortable clothing, in earthy tones of beige and tan. Virgo can be fussy sign, so it’s best to keep it clean, cozy and simple when it comes to getting dressed in Virgo season.

What to buy: A vacuum cleaner! Forget “spring cleaning” — we prefer “summer cleaning” when the Sun is in Virgo. For that matter, you might also want to pick up a broom, a mop and a new feather duster, because now is the perfect time to use that meticulous Virgo energy to get your home perfectly spotless.

What to watch out for: Being too critical and judgmental. Virgo can sometimes be too fussy, turning “perfect” into downright picky, which can be annoying and frustrating for others. Strive to loosen up a little and let a few things go — after all, not everything needs to be perfect.

What to look forward to: Getting back on track. Sun in Virgo is an organized and practical period in which to get back to business after a few playful months. It may not be all fun and games, but you will feel fantastic about how much you’ve accomplished by the time the Sun moves on into Libra on Sept. 22.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Sunday, August 23


 

 

 

 

Your Daily Horoscopes for Sunday, August 23rd

 

Aries

Aries Horoscope
Aries

Wherever the Sun transits in your solar chart, dear Aries, you have take-charge energy and focus at your disposal for the areas of life ruled by that sector. Today and until September 23rd, the Sun spotlights your work, service, health, daily habits, and routines. Focus can be on improving your self-care habits, organization, and work commitments. You take more pride in, and are more equipped to take charge of, your health and wellness. You’re going to be putting a lot of effort into these things in the upcoming year with Jupiter spending time in this sector, and you’re likely to get some lucky boosts along the way.

Taurus


Taurus

On the 11th, Jupiter entered your romance and creativity sector for a thirteen month stay, dear Taurus. Today, the Sun begins its month-long visit to this area of your chart, and this stimulates your attention, pride, and sense of being in charge. Any latent needs to perform, entertain, have fun, attract love, and express yourself creatively come to the fore now. You could be feeling more romantic or affectionate now. You might begin creative projects or hobbies, or you could be renewing or putting more energy into these things now. You are looking for feedback and perhaps some ego strokes, but most importantly, you are recognizing your natural need for some “play” time. This cycle lasts until September 23rd and helps to kick off your lucky Jupiter cycle in a fun way.

Gemini


Gemini

The Sun moves to the lowermost place in your chart today, dear Gemini, and as it moves through your home and family sector over the coming month, you’ll be most concerned with domestic and personal matters. The outside world will still need your attention, of course, but your strongest focus now is becoming more comfortable and secure in your home, and in your own skin as well. Soothe yourself with the familiar, and step into your comfort zone. We all need to do this from time to time. The needs of family and the home environment may not necessarily increase, but you’ll hear them loud and clear. Jupiter has just recently entered this sector of your chart, bringing more joy and benefits to home and family life. The Sun here brings your pride into the equation. It’s a strong time for making improvements.

Cancer


Cancer

The Sun moves into your communications sector today, dear Cancer, where it illuminates your mind as well as the connections you have and make to others. Your daily life may become especially busy, and possibly scattered at times. There can be a lot of comings and goings. You might increase your contact and communication with others, and/or throw yourself into learning exciting new things. Some of you could discover fun new interests. Because demands on you, and your own interests, can be very diverse during this cycle, it can be difficult to work on any one project with exclusive focus. Even so, this cycle is more about discovery and branching out than specializing. Jupiter has just recently moved into this area of your chart for a longer stay, until September 2016, and this can create quite a nice, positive buzz around your communications.

Leo


Leo

The Sun leaves your sign today, and begins its month-long transit of your sector of values and resources, dear Leo. This puts a lot of emphasis on your levels of comfort and security. You’re especially interested in finding ways to settle in, but also to build upon recent ideas in order to get some results. This can involve finances, of course, but it’s also a cycle in which you get into greater touch with what it is you have, both material and spiritual resources. Whether these things help you to feel secure or if they are attempts to replace more important things that are missing from your life might be explored now, and in many ways, through the coming year with Jupiter now transiting this area of your chart until September 2016. This is a time to appreciate what you already have, and if something is truly missing, to make plans to build what you need. Taking charge of your financial affairs can also be appropriate at this time in your life. Today is strong for personal appeal and creative expression. The Moon stimulates your playful side now, but also sensitivity to whether others are paying attention and giving you the feedback you desire.

Virgo

Virgo Symbol/Glyph
Virgo

Jupiter just recently moved into your sign, dear Virgo, and today, the Sun begins its yearly, month-long visit, bringing more oomph to the table. You are at a personal peak of sorts, and this will continue in many ways for the year to come, when you feel more in charge of your life than you normally do. You might play with a new look, style, or image. You are more inclined to take mindful action rather than simply react to what is going on around you. This begins a new “birthday year”, and when your birthday does occur, remind yourself that you have more power than usual to make resolutions and to make changes that truly improve your life. As more attention comes to you, you quite naturally want to get your act together. You are more readily attracting what you need into your life now. Even so, today’s Moon visit to your home and family sector can bring out the homebody in you.

Libra

Libra Glyph-Symbol
Libra

Today, the Sun begins its transit of the most private, tucked away sector of your chart, dear Libra, and will continue to transit this sector of your chart until September 23rd. This begins a natural cycle that emphasizes the need to look back, reflect, and reconsider before you move forward with personal plans. Goals may not be clear, or could need some refinement. You may be bringing some matters to a closure. Decision making in general is a slower process now, as you are not as impulsive, confident, or sure about what you’re ready, able, and willing to do. This is a period for a tidy-up on an emotional, spiritual, or mental level. Jupiter recently entered this same sector of your chart and will visit here for over a year. This gives you a support system as the Sun transits this sector for the coming month.

Scorpio

Scorpio Symbol Glyph
Scorpio

Today the Sun enters your sector of connections, friendships, wishes, and hopes, dear Scorpio, and will continue to visit this house of your solar chart until September 23rd. It’s a friendly, idealistic cycle that stimulates your need to connect with people who share common ideals and aspirations. It also brings out your desire to seek happiness. Being part of a team or group effort can be especially satisfying now. It’s a time when making a contribution to your community can be satisfying, and when putting ego needs to the side in favor of group efforts can be helpful. Bringing even greater oomph to all of these things is Jupiter, having just recently begun a thirteen month visit to this same sector of your chart. You’re in the position to benefit from friendships and new goals.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius Glyph Symbol
Sagittarius

Jupiter just recently began a thirteen month visit of your career and reputation sector, kicking off a cycle of improved opportunities, professional presence, and influence, dear Sagittarius. Today, the Sun begins its month-long transit of this same sector, bringing more power, focus, and conscious, directed energy along with it. It’s a take-charge time for professional and public efforts, as well as duties and responsibilities. You quite naturally take the lead, and the spotlight. You are in greater demand, and there can be more attention to your performance and accomplishments now. Today, the Moon is in your sign, and you are seeing things from a rather emotional perspective. The Sun and your ruler, Jupiter, are in parallel aspect, and this serves to boost your personal and professional appeal all day.

Capricorn

Capricorn Symbol/Glyph
Capricorn

The Sun begins its yearly, month-long transit of your adventure sector today, dear Capricorn, encouraging you to reach beyond your usual limits, boundaries, and routines in order to experience and learn new things. Jupiter, the planet of expansion and increase, has just recently entered this sector of your chart, and now with the Sun here, there is more directed, take-charge energy available to you, although after the Solar Eclipse mid-September will be even more powerful. You are feeling in form and more confident now. The routine or mundane elements of your life appear less interesting and more black-and-white as you seek out more colorful life experiences. Even so, the Moon continues to transit the background of your chart today, and you may very well enjoy some quiet time just for now.

Aquarius


Aquarius

The Sun begins highlighting your solar eighth house today, dear Aquarius, shining light on sharing in intimate and financial ways. This is a time for recognizing debts to and dependencies on others, and taking charge in some manner. In fact, you can gain a real feeling of self-empowerment during this cycle that lasts until September 23rd. Debt and support in question can be either emotional or material, and if you can come to terms with it, you can feel more in control of your life. Getting to a healthier balance is important now. You are more interested in what’s going on behind the scenes and below the surface than the more superficial interactions in your life, and while investigating, playing detective, and analyzing are all favored now, taken too far, they could lead to unnecessary suspicion and a negative headspace. Sidestep your way around power games in order to focus instead on getting closer with someone important in your life and with yourself. Be as honest with yourself as possible for the best results. Jupiter is helping you out all month and beyond, as this planet of plenty recently entered this same sector of your chart, bringing joy and benefits to your intimate world.

Pisces


Pisces

You are beginning a relationship-focused month-long cycle today, dear Pisces, with the Sun’s move into Virgo. Jupiter has just recently entered this sector of your chart and will spend over a year here, bringing benefits to and from your relationships. You take more pride in how you get along with others, and how well you find harmony and balance in your personal environment. Many of you are more companionable, sociable, and compromising than usual, as your awareness of the needs of, and needs for, others becomes very obvious. Your own personal agenda may need to wait. At times, it may seem that others are directing your life in some way. Of course, in order to relate well with other people, a strong sense of self is vital. You need to know what you want and what you’re prepared to give. Today, you are more noticeable and accountable than usual, and duties call to you!
