Heading into Virgo Season is like sweeping up the pasties, empty water bottles and discarded kandi after a rave. Every 30 days or so, the Sun visits a new zodiac sign in a season of astrological energy. Order and cleanliness is restored during Virgo Season (Aug. 24-Sept. 23) as Leo Season becomes a more distant memory with each chug of Pedialyte. We’re feeling more mutable, earthy (one of three earth signs), adaptable and ready to edit our lives during this time. Virgo Season inspires us to better ourselves by starting a new exercise routine, finally digging into those Instagram analytics or plant an herb garden – after all, green is the new black right now.
Why does Virgo Season matter? Symbolized by the Maiden Virgin, you can think of yourself as a born-again human with a fresh start during this time. While celebrating this astrological New Year (so to speak), reflect on what’s most important to you and take yourself off autopilot.
Dive into the dirt of your existing goals and position yourself to achieve them. You will find yourself starving for personal growth until mid-September, so make the most of this attitude and prepare for the descent of Fall.
My brother is a classic Virgo; a notoriously loyal and practical creature that thrives on preparing for the future. Cleaning up his act – taking advantage of all those urges to start a new diet, take a German class or reviving something unfinished – always makes him feel like he’s kicking major universe ass. And you can too – or at least you can feel like you got a massive B12 shot. It may seem odd to do a costume change in the dusty thick of 2018 but trust me on this one and use the energy of the season to get ahead. When Sept. 24 hits the speakers, you’ll be leaving glitter on the floor and thanking yourself you already bought tickets to the next festival.
