Mercury in Virgo:

Pay Attention to the Details

That annoying inner voice of yours is about to come into its own. When Mercury enters Virgo and your relentless self-criticism finally gets a constructive, positive outlet – and solutions are on the way, thanks to the astrology of the moment.

In astrology, Virgo energy is infamously critical – some would say harsh – but always fair. Those born with lots of Virgo energy in their birth charts turn their judgment on themselves far more frequently than on others and don’t expect anyone else to do something they wouldn’t do themselves. When there are lots of Virgo transits in the air, however – like late August, when the Sun and Venus are already in Virgo – all of us can be guilty of giving ourselves a hard time.

When Mercury arrives in Virgo, there’s a collective sigh of relief, because all that critical energy can finally be channeled positively. Mercury is only in Virgo for a short time – until September 14, but during these two weeks, the planetary energy ensures that you can make huge progress in finding practical solutions and creating constructive change.

When Mercury transits Virgo, astrology and your horoscope show that there’s an emphasis on detail and effectiveness, as well as efficiency, cleanliness, and streamlining. It becomes easier to find simple, non-convoluted solutions – answers which were probably staring you in the face, but that you couldn’t see because you’d over-complicated everything. 

Astrological Virgo energy is highly analytical, so there’s also a sense of refinement of ideas, testing, re-testing and incremental changes until something actually works. 

For some zodiac signs, however, it’s hard to shake off the worry that Virgo energy can sometimes bring. There is a downside to the Mercury in Virgo transit, and that can mean an obsession with the worst-case scenario, and a constant fretting over whether something is perfect or not. To move past that worrying, it’s helpful to have plenty of optimistic Fire signs in play, or to have a naturally upbeat nature – those of us without may have to haul ourselves out of the doldrums occasionally while Mercury transits Virgo.

Mercury Transit Virgo for Each of the Sun Signs

The Mercury in Virgo transit will affect each Sun sign slightly differently, depending which solar house is emphasized during the transit, and how the energies of Virgo and the other sign mesh together in a horoscope.

Aries Zodiac Sign (Aries Dates: March 20 – April 19) During  Mercury in Virgo

Get your time management sorted out! This Mercury transit is perfect for improving your personal organization, Aries, creating extra time in your schedules and getting rid of pointless paperwork which is weighing you down. Use apps and technology – very Aries - to streamline your systems, so that you can run your life instead of allowing your life to run you.

Taurus Zodiac Sign (Taurus Dates: April 20 – May 20) During Mercury in Virgo

When Mercury is in Virgo, your creative skills can shine, Taurus. It’s an especially good time to blend detail and creativity, perhaps in highly complex drawings or intricate crafting. Complex doodles while you’re thinking could reveal symbolism or patterns from your subconscious – take the time to look at what you’re producing, Taurus, and see if it can help you in any way.

Gemini Zodiac Sign (Gemini Dates: May 21 – June 20) During Mercury in Virgo

Gemini, your challenge during the Mercury in Virgo transit is to break free of old habits. Just because you’ve always done something one way doesn’t mean it’s the only way. Try it from a different angle and you may just experience a breakthrough. Don’t be afraid to take a chance, Gemini – a carefully calculated one, of course, since this is Virgo energy, with its emphasis on the small stuff, but a chance, nonetheless. 

Cancer Zodiac Sign (Cancer Dates: June 21 – July 21) During Mercury in Virgo

During Mercury in Virgo, it’s all about what you say and how you say it, Cancer. If you’re facing opposition or others won’t back you, a simple adjustment in your tone or style of communication might change everything. Think about the impression you’re sending out, Cancer. Put yourself in someone else’s shoes and see yourself as others do. Then you can fix whatever obstacles are holding you back.

Leo Zodiac Sign (Leo Dates: July 22 – August 21) During Mercury in Virgo

Mercury in Virgo can help you to rationalize your spending habits and to cut down on emotional shopping. This is a good time to look carefully at your finances, Leo, and to shop around for a better deal too, if necessary. Get expert advice if you need it, but your own Leo common sense is a great place to start when looking at how to cut back on your outgoing expenses and increase your income.

Virgo Zodiac Sign (Virgo Dates: August 22 – September 21) During Mercury in Virgo

Mercury transiting your own sign is always a good feeling for you, Virgo, since Mercury is your ruling planet. Your communication abilities are outstanding for this couple of weeks, so write letters, articles, essays, job applications, love letters and anything else which needs to be said with impact and style. You’re more confident in showing off your intelligence during this transit, so let your abilities shine.

Libra Zodiac Sign (Libra Dates: September 22 – October 22) During Mercury in Virgo

Be careful with social media during this transit, Libra. What you think you’re saying and how others may interpret it are two very different things. Be careful with secrets too, because Mercury in Virgo energy exposes the finest details. In other words, think before you post or tweet, and ideally – don’t! On the plus side, this transit is excellent for dreamwork, journaling and self-understanding. Use it to figure out what really makes you happy deep inside.

Scorpio Zodiac Sign (Scorpio Dates: October 23 – November 21) During Mercury in Virgo

Think strategically, Scorpio. If you want to get to point B, you need to have a plan, even if that plan involves going via point C. This is a good couple of weeks for mapping out your route and for making step-by-step, one-by-one mini objectives to keep you on track. Replace your normal wing-and-a-prayer approach with something carefully crafted and you might just see some real progress.

Sagittarius Zodiac Sign (Sagittarius Dates: November 22 – December 20) During Mercury in Virgo

 What you say can get you a lot of attention during this transit, so make sure you’re saying things you want to be remembered! If your words are careless or thoughtless, they may come back to haunt you. Speak with truth and honesty, Sagittarius, and speak to the highest principles you know, and then you can be sure that others will back you. When Mercury is in Virgo, your power lies in your ability to persuade.

Capricorn Zodiac Sign (Capricorn Dates: December 21 – January 18) During Mercury in Virgo

Expect a bumpy ride with your religion or faith during this couple of weeks, Capricorn. Virgo’s analytical energy does not sit well with something as intangible and ethereal as a belief – and if you over-analyse your beliefs, you’ll start second-guessing your own identity. If you can, apply Virgo’s critical energy towards something more concrete in your life, Capricorn, and leave your esoteric beliefs alone.

Aquarius Zodiac Sign (Aquarius Dates: January 19 – February 17) During Mercury in Virgo

This uber-rational Mercury transit helps you to calm down emotions in difficult situation. In a power struggle, an illicit affair, an interpersonal row or a heated time at work, take a step back and think through your answers carefully. There is no need to act on the spur of the moment, Aquarius. Use Virgo’s careful, thoughtful and precise power to lower the temperature in the situation, and to gain breathing space.

Pisces Zodiac Sign (Pisces Dates: February 18 – March 19) During Mercury in Virgo

This Mercury transit highlights your kindness and your compassion, Pisces, enabling you to speak up for the vulnerable and the unloved. It’s a fabulous time to get involved in marketing or promotion for a charity. This transit also boosts communication within your closest relationship, so don’t hesitate to tell your loved ones exactly how much they mean to you.

    Awesome Amazing Beautiful Fantastic! When I found Kelli Fox it was what I needed to know and read about that I am as a Libra. The positive words of Wisdom that was confirmed. I live in the mountains of Blue Ridge Georgia and God really helped me locate this beautiful home - one level with a very long driveway. I read the testimonial of a man called William K and i was not out looking at the stars which I should being alone with the deer turkeys and bears I am cautious about the night time. However this man had a person born November 14th that is my fathers birthday and so I thought i need to write to you. Thank you so much Kelli Fox for being there for me. I cried when I read all that your web site told me about myself. My home is way up in the mountains and it is amazingly God given wisdom that made me buy it for peace and tranquility. Now I am wondering if its time to go to a place closer to the town since it is a two lane road to get to town. I love the drive to town however when ive got to get to the airport it's 2 hours and then I'm late since I start to hesitate (as a Libra) and then I'm late by an hour at times! Thank you. I love all of your website. The time now 4.16 am early morning. I'm always an early riser! Thank you again Kelli Fox. Many blessings to you.Cached

    I live in Georgia I’ve attended yesterday’s zoom about Mars Retrograde, I opened the compass on my phone went outside around 8:45 -9:00 pm eastern time zone, walked down the driveway, it’s a beautiful driveway with and amazing view of the sky, So I walked down my driveway glancing, at my compass, got to the end of the driveway, I was already walking west, Look again at my compass, looked up and bam, there it was. Blinking I thought it was a plane at first, the sky was clear so I was able to see all the other stars very well, but Mars from where its located was by itself, there wasn’t any other stars around it, it had a bit reddish glow to it that’s how I knew it was Mars, one of the best days of my life, you want to know something cool, my son is a Scorpio Nov 14/2005 words can’t express the feeling I had knowing that I was looking at my sons ruler, I am a Taurus May 19/1986 special night for me.Cached

    Hi there! I am thoroughly enjoying receiving your horoscopes and informative information on how the planets are affecting our everyday lives. To say this year has been so unpredictable is an understatement, but when you explain how the planets are ‘behaving’, it makes much more sense to me. I have known about the spirit world from being a small child and am in fact a registered healer working in my local church helping and teaching as many people as I can. I feel very much the different energies in people who are unknown to me and can sum them up, usually with uncanny accuracy. A gift from God that I cherish and will never abuse.... if I do, I know it will be taken away from me. Thank you again for your insights and please keep them coming. Sending lots of hugs 🤗🤗🤗🤗 to you and yours. 💜💞💜Cached

    I am so incredibly grateful. I have known, and been applying, the incredible insights that astrology offers to my own life, for some time now, but my husband was still doubtful. I don't know that he truly was believing me about the insight offered from Astrology readings. Until last night. I played his and my videos for us, and not only did it validate insight and information I'd been telling him, there were far more tidbits that went even further in depth. That short introduction into the preciseness of legitimate Astrological insight was seriously the last bit of validation that he needed to realize that his lovely wife wasn't raving on about some cockamamy nonsense that 'is so broad and general in nature that it can apply to anyone at any time. Plus, we have been going through an incredible healing period and transformation of selves and his enabled him to begin to understand why he has felt for, protected, loved, and held so tightly onto those who haven't done the same, and he absolutely was not required to accept abuse from anyone because they're blood related. Thank You!!! The professionalism, insight, accuracy, and clarity thus gained from the peeks into our personality types, further cemented our bond with one another, and our understanding that everything that had been occurring was for our, our little family, and ultimately the Collective All In Oneness' highest, greatest good. So again, thank you for sharing your journey and your incredible contribution to the highest good of the Collective All. You, your work, and the insight/direction it helps provide are not only interesting and informative, but very much needed and incredibly appreciated! Thank You!Cached

    I have been listening to Kelli Fox's astrology videos for a few years now (even before astrology.tv started). I was drawn by both her personality and her voice (love Aussie accents), but especially by her astrological insights that always seemed to be spot on. I now watch her daily, weekly and monthly videos on astrology.tv with great anticipation, and have been joining her weekly astrology.tv weekly sessions for the past month, which are very fun and informant. I like the fact that she will go over personal charts of her viewers during these sessions (still waiting for mine, though) and being able to interact with other viewers in a chat room (Kelli loves being distracted by us!). Anyway, I highly recommend signing up for her newsletters and joining her groups. Kelli is the best!Cached
