As summer winds down, we enter into the Virgo season. From August 23 – September 22, the sun is in Virgo. As we leave the creative, fiery season of Leo that had us dreaming big dreams and setting goals, we embark on a time of execution. With the beginning of a new school year, many people establish new routines as they head back to school and work, and this is the perfect time to get organized.
Hardworking and analytical, Virgos like to have everything in its proper place. Their attention to detail and methodical approach to life does not leave much to chance, and that’s the way they like it. Virgos are very detail-oriented and can get so caught up in the minute details of a situation that they miss the bigger picture.
Virgos are usually gifted in communication skills and excel at speaking and writing and being persuasive. The flip side of that is they are often argumentative and manipulative. Virgos are also very vulnerable and careful. They often fail to see their own worth or understand the validity of their own emotions, feelings, and needs.
In relationships, Virgos are slow to trust, but once they do, they are loyal and committed. They do not indulge in passing relationships; rather they seek stability and predictability. They are great listeners and advisors as well, but be aware of their need to solve problems. If you want someone to just listen and not offer advice, the Virgo may not be the best confidant.
It’s Time to Get Organized!
During Virgo season, we can all harness the energy that prevails. This summer threw us into the chaos of Mercury retrograde, where concentration and order seemed impossible, and friction, miscommunications, and technology issues prevailed. Thankfully, Virgo season is here to restore order and rationality.
You may feel the urge to clean out your closet or organize your office during this time. Give in to the desire to purge and simplify. This is a time of cleansing, both physically and emotionally, as we return to order and contentment. If you have any projects looming, set your mind to completing them. Clearing off your to-do list will come easier during the next 30 days, so take advantage of the time.
Additionally, if you’ve been thinking about a new exercise routine, now is the perfect time to kick-start your plan. Avoiding a difficult conversation? Take some time to strategize and rely on prevailing communication skills of this time to approach the conflict with calm assurance.
The Throat Chakra
Virgo’s readiness to deliver facts with clarity and purpose are a sign of prevailing throat chakra. As an important instrument of communication and expression, when the throat chakra is open, we possess the ability to speak out and express our truth.
Because of its placement between the third eye and heart chakras, the throat has the responsibility of verbalizing what is in your head and heart. When blocked, it may be difficult to verbalize your feelings or get your point across. This can lead to feelings of insecurity and timidity. Conversely, an overactive throat chakra may lead to gossiping and verbal aggression.
Crystals and Stones
Because Virgos have a tendency towards perfectionism, some crystals that encourage grounding and go-with-the-flow may be beneficial. Select stones that promote balance and intuition, as well as calming energy to dispel the racing thoughts of the Virgo season.
Select oils that help ground and center a racing mind during this season. Oils that ease tension can also ease the sometimes overly-practical and detail-focused Virgo. In short, the best oils during this time are those that help you chill out!
Virgo Roller Blend
Try this relaxing blend to calm and restore balance and harmony. You can also add these oils to a bath for a soothing soak.
8 drops frankincense
6 drops lavender
4 drops cypress
Combine essential oils in a 10 mL roller bottle. (I love the Constellation Trio from Whimsy & Wellness!) Add crystals and top off with carrier oil. Affix roller and shake gently before use.
