Read your horoscope for Sun in Virgo
Calling all overachievers
Reorganize your altar. Dust behind the curtains. Preach your favorite wellness hacks. As the Sun journeys through meticulous Virgo from August 23rd to September 22nd, life’s details crisp into focus. This attentive earth sign is known for sweating the small stuff — and for good reason. Little things can quickly pile into big things. And likewise, diligent completion of the unglamorous but necessary tasks makes life’s joys sweeter to savor. When the Sun is in Virgo we’re reminded that casting our spells methodically, actually following the dinner recipe, and putting things back where we found them add up to a richer experience for everyone. Picky? Maybe. Positively attuned to potential? Even more so.
The Full Moon in Pisces on August 30th illuminates areas in your life that could use more magic, empathy, or imagination. If you feel spacey around this time, or extra sensitive, shore up your boundaries. This Full Moon enhances access to inspiration of all stripes — but the only way to bring it down to earth is to make sure you’re planted there, too. Resist the temptation to get sucked into every stranger’s sob story or the alluring haze of your favorite fantasies. Dosing your dreams with reality creates the most pleasing potion of all.
Meanwhile, the New Moon in Virgo on September 14th encourages you to roll up your sleeves and get to work. This is a potent period for planning, intention setting, and mapping out blueprints for all your upcoming projects. The more precise your focus is at this time, the more you’ll attract the allies and resources you need to achieve your goals. Immerse yourself in the fine print of your aspirations. Nitpick away.
Over the coming weeks, tune into what parts of your life could use some optimizing or grounding. Research which routines encourage you to operate at your peak. Ultimately, Virgo’s diligence transforms your life into a ritual for your own growth.

The following horoscopes were written by Grace Mungovan.
Aries & Aries Rising
As the Sun enters Virgo, pull out your magnifying glass and assess how you’re doing in the arenas of work, health, and wellness. Alphabetize your essential oils. Scrutinize the ingredients in your supplements. Set up that dentist’s appointment a year in advance. Right now, it’s all about the fine print.
Being thoughtful about the small details of your routines sets the stage for your success. This could mean investing in a more ergonomic office chair or purchasing pens with flowing ink that make you want to write.
Zooming in on the little picture makes your big-picture plans easier to grasp.
Taurus & Taurus Rising
As the Sun enters Virgo, go on a treasure hunt to discover what brings you pleasure. And create a detailed map.
How to find what you’re seeking? Lean into your tastes. Be picky. Sample different ice cream flavors until you come across the exact one you’re craving. Give precise edits on the sketch for your next tattoo. Text your crush the name of the film you’re curious about with reviews attached.
The more specific you are about what uniquely lights you up, the easier it is to create the experiences and relationships you really want.
Exercise your discernment in service to your desires.
Gemini & Gemini Rising
As the Sun enters Virgo, your focus turns toward domestic details. Prepare to overanalyze your family or chosen family, or just that pile of neglected laundry.
Explore the minuscule facets of your inner and outer foundations. Unpack dynamics from the past with a helpful therapist or wise friend. Assess where your needs for security and nourishment are being met or pushed to the side. Scrub the bathroom with a toothbrush. Toss expired food with zeal.
Consider this period a thorough dusting of your cabinets — whether they’re literal or emotional. It’s not always fun to bust through physical or psychic cobwebs, but in the end, you’re left with gleaming, clear spaces that are ready for what’s next.
Cancer & Cancer Rising
As the Sun enters Virgo, edit your daily life.
Your schedule sets the stage for your satisfaction — or your overwhelm. Assess where practical tweaks can help things flow more smoothly. If you’ve been considering a sunrise wake-up time, an evening candlelit yoga class, or simply more breaks, pencil them all in.
Should your highly attuned feelers pick up on sneaky undercurrents in your conversations — hidden barbs or concealed agendas — resist the urge to overanalyze. Your sensitivity to nuance is a gift, but don’t let it weigh you down.
Assume positive intentions unless you have reason to believe otherwise, and go on with micromanaging your dinner reservations.
Leo & Leo Rising
As the Sun enters Virgo, track the details of your money.
Cross the practical to-dos off your list first. Create a folder for all your receipts. Investigate lucrative side hustles. Consult experts who can help you elevate your self-worth and charge fair rates for your services.
But then: get witchy. Find a new wallet that makes you happy. Bless it with affirmations. Wreath it in incense. Weigh your altar down with symbols of abundance that are specific to you, from toy money to your favorite ripe fruit.
Responsible action + wooing your desires = success tailored just for you.
Virgo & Virgo Rising
As the Sun enters Virgo, your meticulous magic gets magnified. The detail-oriented, slightly know-it-all, witchy-beyond-belief energy you emanate is a blessing, and this month gives you opportunities to wield it for the benefit of all.
Offer spontaneous advice on supplements and spellcasting. Select a perfect housewarming gift. Backseat grammar your heart out. Go ahead: clip that loose thread off your friend’s sweater.
But make sure to solicit feedback about whether your assistance is desired. You are an encyclopedia’s worth of knowledge, but wielding it when it’s wanted is how you truly are of service.
Libra & Libra Rising
As the Sun enters Virgo, zoom in on sleep, solitude, and your behind-the-scenes projects.
Make strategic tweaks to your restful oases and peaceful sanctuaries. Compare reviews on black-out curtains. Turn your essential oil diffuser all the way up and nod off to your favorite rose scent. Highlight your own preferences and take practical actions to elevate them in your quiet space.
But also, tie up any loose ends in your solo projects. Whether that means logging hours in a dark room or double-checking punctuation in your manuscript, focus up.
Consideration is a form of devotion. Direct your committed care to elevating your own private self.
Scorpio & Scorpio Rising
As the Sun enters Virgo, pinpoint how best to help your community.
There are a lot of ways to serve the collective. Prioritize the ones that make the most sense for you. This could mean volunteering to set up chairs before your best friend’s play, running errands for an elderly neighbor, or studying works written by social justice activists.
Love isn’t always a dramatic gesture. Sometimes it’s a practical act of consideration. Other times it’s a well-thought out strategy to help create conditions for everyone to thrive in. The most important thing is to simply begin taking action in small ways, wherever you are.
Asking those around you what they need will help connect you to life’s vibrant interdependence.
Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising
As the Sun enters Virgo, bring your big dreams down to earth.
Whether that means adding footnotes to your 10-year plan or transforming your vision board into an actionable to-do list, get specific. Concepts like “legacy” can feel fuzzy and far away, but really, they’re built over time by the practical actions you take today.
If you find yourself overcome with anxiety when it comes to your career or greater calling, take a breath. Break your goals down into small, doable chunks and reward yourself for each little win. Gold stars all the way.
Capricorn & Capricorn Rising
As the Sun enters Virgo, plot your own expansion. If you crave a spiritual, mental, or geographic journey, start mapping it out. In detail.
Don’t get swamped in fantasies about that dream vacation, craft potential itineraries. If you’ve been curious about studying a foreign language, download a learning app. But if you feel inclined to correct your meditation teacher’s posture, it might be time to pause and count to ten.
What you focus on expands. Turn your attention toward the experiences that make your pulse pound and your thoughts run wild. Chase the wisdom that specifically calls to you now.
Aquarius & Aquarius Rising
As the Sun enters Virgo, clarify your boundaries with others and analyze the subtle dynamics of your exchanges.
Whether you’re dishing out time, money, or emotional energy to other people, it’s important to get specific about your requirements. If you need to reel back a financial investment or take ten from an energy vampire roommate, find precise wording for your requests. Clarity is compassion for everyone involved.
Should you find yourself replaying your conversations on loop and getting lost in the details, keep a therapist or thoughtful friend on speed dial. Other people’s perspectives can remind us of the big picture so we don’t become bogged down by the small stuff.
Pisces & Pisces Rising
As the Sun enters Virgo, study up on the love languages of those closest to you. Not everyone wants or receives care in the same ways.
Fill your roommate’s car up with gas after using it. Ask your chatty best friend how their job interview went. Bring your flora-adoring partner a bouquet of fresh blossoms.
Tailoring your acts of kindness to the specific preferences of those around you demonstrates that you’re paying attention to them. Ultimately, your focused presence is the strongest sign of your affection.
