Moon in Virgo

Lunar Virgos find security in the little things in life. They feel most content when they’ve straightened out all the details of everyday life. Many of them enjoy running errands, paying bills, and balancing the books. They take care of these things happily, although some won’t let on. In fact, many Lunar Virgos are quite practiced at nagging and complaining. As long as they are appreciated, however, these people will help you take care of your life, too. They are at their best when they feel useful and needed. If somebody needs help, they are generally the first to jump up and take on the task.

Some people with Virgo Moons are accused of being underachievers. While it may be true that Lunar Virgos can lack self-confidence, many are–quite simply–content with living “regular”, unassuming lives. They appreciate simplicity, and are often most comfortable when they’re not getting too much attention from the world at large. Lunar Virgos are easily overwhelmed by pressure and stress. They worry incessantly when there is too much to think about; and they know their limits.

Arguably the worst position for a Lunar Virgo is without a steady routine or a simply satisfying job. They need to feel useful, and they best express this by helping others in little ways. They need something to call their own, and the space to do what they want to do.

The unhappy Lunar Virgos are fussy and complaining sorts. They are victims of routine and freak out when their plans are not followed. They are restless and nervous, and can’t seem to see the big picture. Probably the best remedy for these people is a job or hobby in which they can express their deep need to analyze, attend to details, and micromanage.

These people express their affection for the people they care about in little, but practical, ways. They can be a little stiff when it comes to open, gushy displays of affection. Lunar Virgos are often shy with new people. However, when they are comfortable, they are anything but shy.

More often than not, others can count on Moon in Virgo people. They are reliable and trustworthy. Above all else, Lunar Virgos are practical. Others turn to them for help and advice.

In relationships, Lunar Virgos can be self-effacing and kind. Some are quite shy in love, and easily intimidated on a sexual level. Many are not very comfortable with their sexuality, but they aim to please nonetheless. The sign of Virgo is very body-aware, in general. If this awareness combines with a lack of self-confidence, Lunar Virgos can be too aware of the parts that make up the whole. This can lead to a tendency to be intensely self-critical. Once Lunar Virgos learn to come out of their shell, however, they can be earthy partners with a lot to give.

Some of the most skeptical people are Lunar Virgos. They can’t help but poke holes when faced with others’ blind faith. Their criticism can be maddening, and their insistence on seeing the practical in anything emotional can be challenging, especially if you are the dreamy type.

Virgo curiosity shows up big time with this position of the Moon. To some, it can be confusing. Lunar Virgos seem very interested in others’ problems, for example, but can be quite cool and even unsympathetic in the long run. Their advice can seem hard to more sensitive folk; yet Lunar Virgos can be surprisingly delicate when faced with others’ criticism.

Virgo Moon people are generally busy and quietly happy when they have their lives under control. They aim for a simple existence, and are often quite content with very little. Many are early risers, ready to take on the day with enthusiasm. They scurry around, keeping busy and managing their life quietly and expertly. As long as their little world is manageable, Lunar Virgos can be a delight to be around.

About the Virgo Moon

Helping others brings positive reinforcement to your own self-esteem. You may prefer to work behind the scenes, hoping that others will sell the ideas to the masses. But you are not offended when you are appropriately recognized for your accomplishments. Your attention to precision often gets interpreted as perfectionism. There is a strong desire to analyze your emotions rather than simply “feel” them.

The Sun In Virgo

The Sun in Virgo

Your cosmic guide to life with the Sun in Virgo

Tarotcom StaffTarotcom Staff on the topics of virgo, sun, astrology

 

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.

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 Planet Tracker for August 20th: Mercury In Virgo, Aug 15, 2014 to Sep 1, 2014

Planet Tracker

Mercury in Virgo

Aug 15, 2014 to Sep 1, 2014

 

Mercury, the planet of communication, has two home signs: Gemini and Virgo. Gemini represents the objective airy side of thought, while Virgo is the practical, earthy side. Mercury in Virgo, then, is a time when thought is most likely to be used with efficiency and conversation grounded in reality.

A planet is considered to be strong when in its home sign, one which it is said to rule. This helps direct and refine its energies to higher levels of purity and power. Mercury in Virgo is, therefore, a strong period in which to analyze and criticize with great precision. Taken to its extremes, however, this can become a narrowness of thought that kills imagination and abstraction. Mercury in Virgo often works best after original ideas are born in rough form that can then be polished and refined.

Those born with Mercury in Virgo usually have very sharp minds that readily comprehend complex patterns and fine details. Success, though, comes when this narrow view is balanced with awareness of the big picture and higher orders of reality. The best thinkers are able to move comfortably among various perspectives to give the widest understanding possible.

Those born with Mercury in Virgo include the highly regarded basketball coach Phil Jackson, law professor Alan Dershowitz, Lyndon Johnson, Yasser Arafat, writers H.P. Lovecraft and Truman Capote, astronaut Neil Armstrong, chef Julia Child and spiritual teacher Sri Aurobindo.

The world of music offers composers Claude Debussy and George Gershwin, and singers Bobby Short, Whitney Houston and Madonna. Acting Mercury in Virgos include Dustin Hoffman, Peter O’Toole, Sean Connery, Ingrid Bergman, Melanie Griffith, Steve Martin, Michael Douglas, Chevy Chase, Lucille Ball and Mae West.

Planet Tracker: Moon In Virgo, July 1 thru July 4

Planet Tracker

Moon in Virgo

Jul 1, 2014 to Jul 4, 2014

 

Caution this Moontime: you could get snared by a “Virgo moment.” Stuck on a detail you can’t abandon, compelled to argue small points with somebody who is as stuck as you. Or suddenly everything is a poorly organized file in need of drastic tidying. Most diabolical is the urge to tear yourself or somebody else apart with criticism. If you’ve gotten too busy with the little things, look to a bigger principle to lift you out. Or try the color purple. Visualize yourself in a bright field of purple wildflowers. Draw your imagination into the center of one flower and feel your kinship with it. Know that everything less than perfect is also holy. The intellect is keen during a Virgo Moon, and it likes useful work. You’ll hit your groove doing something productive. Straighten up a small corner of your world. Attend to an unsolved problem. Avoid heavy, spicy foods; be good to your liver and digestive system.

Daily Cosmic Calendar for Thursday, June 5

Forty-eight hours ago around this time, the Moon connected with Venus via a parallel aspect. Now the same two celestial bodies — in Virgo and Taurus, respectively — form a flowing trine of 120-degrees (12:25AM). Love vibrations increase in wavelength while social and artistic activities receive a notable surge in energy. Another trine — this one being between the Moon in Virgo and Pluto in Capricorn (9:25AM) — turns both 120-degree alignments into a grand triangle in earth signs. Summon spiritual willpower and mental concentration to pad your bank account and bring professional aims into manifestation. Testing your mettle is the First Quarter Sun-Moon Phase (activating 16 degrees of Gemini and Virgo at 1:40PM). Cut through apparent obstacles blocking your forward progress. Manage your business affairs with finesse. The two traditional beneficial planets — Venus and Jupiter — come together in an inspirational, 72-degree formation (6:44PM). You can really tune into some terrific money-making enterprises around this time — particularly as the Moon is also making its monthly polarity to Chiron (6:45PM) and a parallel to Ceres (6:46PM). These latter two aspects add a healing touch and productivity boost to the proceedings. Research into health and nutritional matters is always on center stage when the Moon is transiting through this sixth sign of the zodiac. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Daylight Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]
