Love takes centre stage for you this year, Virgo, and it’s about time. This year is about channelling the love, generosity, nurturing, and understanding you have for others and giving it to yourself. All of this new energy will express itself in multiple ways, including tension, so remain flexible and trust the process. A Mercury retrograde in Virgo from the 23rd of August until the 15th of September may bring some chaos to the standard with which you like to maintain your life. Organisation, communication, and health issues may arise during this time, so take your time and let go of what you cannot control.
Who You Really Are
Walking with grace, poise, and serenity, Virgo has arrived. Virgo is known for the kindness they give, the detail they observe and the perfection they pursue. Their symbol, the maiden, symbolises their close relationship with nature, their self-sufficiency and their sensitivity. A Virgo in their strength is giving, helpful, healthy, organised, and calm. When they struggle, it manifests as being overly critical of themselves and others, not having sufficient boundaries, as well as unbridled perfectionism and nervousness. Self-worth, boundary-setting, balance and acceptance are life lessons for Virgo.
Virgo is ruled by Mercury and is at home in the 6th house of health, organisation and daily life. A combination of mutable (flexible, open-minded, and understanding) and earth (grounded, perceptive, and trustworthy) produce a sign that is a steady and accommodating person who finds genuine pleasure in serving others.
Mercury shows up in this sign with its more analytical properties, driving Virgos to be focused on details, cleanliness, and health. The 6th house represents the time in a person’s life when they begin to scrutinise information rather than simply taking it at face value. All this constructs a sign that is intelligent, detail-oriented, giving, and kind. Take your time, Virgo, you have as much time as the trees and the flowers.
Career and Money
If you’ve had a lack of work motivation over the past few months, that’s due to end in 2023. From the 12th of January, your work drive returns as well as your ability to process large amounts of information within the workplace. From the 21st of May until the 27th of July you are well situated to make career moves. Things like negotiating pay rises, job interviews, and tackling creative or innovative projects are ideal for this period. The full moon in Gemini on the 27th of November provides a great time for reflection on your work life, particularly the previous six months. Have you achieved what you set out to?
The full moon in Libra on the 6th of April is a time when the financial seeds you have been sowing begin to sprout. It’s also a good time to balance your budget, make financial goals and reflect on your spending habits. From the 27th of August until the 4th of December is a prosperous time to spend money, make financial decisions, and treat yourself to a moderately good time.
Friends and Family
The first full moon of 2023 will have you reflecting on your friendships, who you spend your time with and how they make you feel. The full moon in Cancer is on the 7th of January and is a time when suppressed feelings come to the surface. From the 7th of May until the 23rd of July you will be at your most sociable. This is the best time to socialise in a way that works for you, like deepening existing friendships, providing and receiving emotional support, and partaking in joint self-care activities. The second full moon in Cancer for the year falls on the 27th of December and is a chance to look back over the year and reflect on the impact your friendships had on your life.
The full moon in Sagittarius on the 4th of June may have you feeling restricted by traditional definitions of home and family. This is a time when you are reflecting on what you need from home, your loved ones and yourself. You may need space, freedom and fun to do that. Your home or family life is transforming once more from the 11th of October, so remain flexible to prevent your peace from shattering. From the 22nd of October and for the rest of the year is an ideal time for moving somewhere new, claiming your independence, and stepping outside of your comfort zone.
Love and Romance
From the 27th of January until the 21st of March, the world is your romantic oyster. Whether you’re single and looking, committed, dating or in love with your independence, dreamy romanticism is in store for you. The 2nd of March is a very, very, very romantic, passionate, and love-abundant day. Mark your calendars. Proposals, pregnancy announcements, moving in together, amazing dates or simply witnessing how much love surrounds you is on the cards for many Virgos on this day. Ideas, relationships and new steps that begin around this time will fruit around the full moon in Pisces on the 31st of August. Long-term relationship building is also well suited from the 4th of November well into 2024.
As far as dating goes, the year begins strong with only the very best matches winning time with you. The very first day of 2023 will likely bring a change to how you approach dating, romance, and expressing yourself authentically.
Your Year in a Nutshell
While giving is nothing new for you, Virgo, this year is going to teach you how to receive. Now is the time to allow yourself to be cared for, vulnerable, and loved unconditionally, and it starts within. You deserve to be so loved, Virgo. Let the love in.
