Day: September 18, 2020
Love it or hate it, we’ve officially entered well into Virgo season, and the responses may be… mixed.
Whether you’re anxious or feeling organized and motivated to get to work, there is no doubt a series of ups and downs to handling this September’s Virgo season, and perhaps even a learning curve.
Aside from the abundance of other methods that you could use — crystal healing, some self-care, or whatever else! — affirmations are a simple, and Virgo season-friendly, way of grounding yourself and harnessing the power of Virgo energy. While they are always a relevant and powerful tool at our disposal, they may be even more potent during this zodiac season!
We will dive into what healing affirmations can grant us power during this Virgo season, and gain some deeper insights into why we may experience this most interesting time in the way that we do.
Get up close and personal with the Virgo zodiac sign!
What is Virgo Energy?
Ruled by the communicative and cerebral planet Mercury, Virgo energy can grant us the intelligence, detail-oriented mindset, and organizational motivations that we’ve been looking for. Both an Earth sign and Mutable, Virgo energy desires structure but still demands flexibility, which can be either an asset or a serious challenge.
On the other hand, it can also lend to overthinking, anxiety, and stress if not handled with open arms and some slight caution. Like anything, it needs to be balanced out.
You don’t have to be a Virgo in order to experience classic Virgo tendencies. Especially in Virgo season, we all tend to fall into Virgo energy, so these affirmations can help you manifest, relax, or be empowered in your best self regardless of zodiac sign!
10 Comforting Virgo Season Affirmations to Support & Empower You
1. I Create My Own Opportunities With Ease
What’s a common anxiety that you usually stumble into? For many, the idea of what comes next in your life — whether a romantic partner, the next job opportunity, or something else entirely — can be a daunting thought.
This affirmation reminds you that you have the power to change, create, and forge your own path while harnessing all of Virgo season’s powers.
2. I Release Stress With Every Breath
As one of the biggest difficulties of Virgo season can be grappling with your own inner world and the anxieties that await you within there, this affirmation will allow you to let go of it all in the simplest way.
By breathing simply and slowly, we remember that we have control over our own bodies and how we choose to relax, no matter where we are or what we are doing.
3. My Insights Are Assets to Myself & Others
The keen eye and mind of Virgo are not just limited to Virgos themselves! In Virgo season, we may feel more inclined to share our ideas with others.
With this affirmation, we validate our insights and empower ourselves to share what is on our mind, knowing with confidence it offers value.
4. I Receive Back the Energy I Give
This simple affirmation reminds you to hold onto your boundaries and establish them clearly.
Virgo energy can implore us to give to others very freely as it catches weak spots and designs solutions, but we must remember to allow ourselves to receive too.
5. I Find Power Through Routine
In Virgo season, it’s highly likely that you’ll find yourself needing organization and routine, even if it’s not initially desired.
This affirmation allows you to be empowered by, rather than restricted by, routine and structure. Using it frequently and incorporating it into a routine itself can be even more powerful!

6. I Am Intelligent and Capable
In true Virgo fashion, communication, thought, and the general functions of our mind will be heightened this season.
This affirmation bolsters and takes advantage of these facts, and allows you to make the most out of your quick-thinking mind during this time.
7. I Carry My Plans Through & Accomplish My Goals
Sometimes, we might feel as though we’ve bit off more than we can chew. Especially now, there can be a million plans and ideas we’ve had floating around and just never got around to.
Repeat this affirmation when you need the confidence that you can do what you set your mind to, and watch as you prove yourself right!
8. I Branch Out & Attract New Beginnings
Despite its communicative nature, there actually is quite a bit of shyness to the energy of Virgo!
If you’re feeling locked inside your own mind and can’t quite seem to break free of inner anxieties, this is another affirmation that will open you up to new possibilities and help you speak with eloquence — and attract greatness.
9. I Am Adapatable & Brave
It takes a lot of guts to be able to roll with the punches and make up new plans of action on the spot when things go awry.
But with Virgo season supporting us in this, we only need the confidence and occasional slight reminder that we are more than capable of handling it all. Repeat this affirmation when you’ve hit a seemingly immovable obstacle, and channel the strength within that already exists.
10. I Readily Accept Recognition & Reward
Virgo or not, we all offer something incredible to the world, and often wish to share our unique gifts and talents with others in the best way that we can. Sometimes, especially with Virgo energy at play, we can fall into the trap of desiring to share so much that we forget to ask for reward in return, or forget that we were always worthy of it in the first place.
This affirmation empowers you to recognize what is yours immediately, and claim it with confidence and strength.
Taking Advantage of Affirmations
Both Virgo season and the tool of affirmations are more than meets the eye, and it may feel, especially now, like you have to take upon more than you might usually.
In reality, the lesson of Virgo season, and the point of affirmations, both serve to remind us that we are capable of keeping things simple and smart. As intelligent beings, we are more than able to handle what sits in front of us, and use any tool — like affirmations — or grapple with any obstacle with ease and grace.
That is to say that ultimately, how you use these affirmations is up to you! Remember that it’s only about empowering what already exists within, and watch as you witness your own power and greatness unfold with ease.

As we move from practical, structured Virgo season into balanced, beauty-seeking Libra, you may find yourself reflecting on this year, on its challenges and struggles and obstacles, from a new perspective.
Virgo is intensely focused, cleaning up messes and helping us wrap up existing work — and now that we are shifting into Libra’s Cardinal air, we have a new opportunity to start fresh, to begin additional projects, to take everything we’ve learned and use those truths in brilliant and perhaps unexpected ways.
With Virgo we were pushed to sit with the reflective energy of the Hermit, looking inward and considering what we’ve been hiding from ourselves. Now, Libra and Justice urge us to allow some of our ideas to spill out into the world, to put our dreams into practice, to combine innovation with awareness.
After taking the time to examine our own secrets and shadows, after uncovering what it is we truly believe in, Libra gives us an opportunity to see how those theories actually play out, and to learn from those around us. We introduce our vision, work with those we trust to refine it, use our natural sense of harmony and beauty and magic to create something that others are drawn to.
While we may be beginning something new, there’s a sense of rich certainty and power that we perhaps have not felt with other cardinal seasons.
Libra brings joy and clarity, asking us to make thoughtful decisions, to weigh the pros and cons of our preferences, and to find deep pleasure in our ideas. Libra wants to understand, to collaborate, to share. And in adopting an attitude of education, in being willing to listen to all, Libra can help us evolve and transform with sensitivity, courage, and grace.
Libra & The Justice Card
Justice may seem like an intense card for gentle, peace-making Libra, with its sharp swords and a perceptive ability to cut through certain issues. But at its core, the drive of Libra is one of equality and reciprocity, making sure everyone has what they require, honoring the needs and desires of all. This sign often gets a bad rap for being indecisive, so concerned are they with considering every side of a problem — but when Libra thrives, everyone wins.
When we feel strongly about what we believe in, when we’re willing to take a stand for the things that matter, we can join up with others that feel the same way, that view the world through the same lens. And in taking the time to evaluate all of the angles of a particular problem, we can recognize for ourselves where we are ready to push forward, and what we are willing to fight for.
This Tarot spread for Libra season invites you to remember the archetype of Justice even as you move into a new season of magic, equality, and strength.
Where have you been craving balance? What are you ready to begin, and what new perspectives might you need to keep in mind? How can you combine grace with power?

Where might you need to consider another viewpoint or perspective? What can you give, and what might that allow you to receive? Where is balance needed? What are you overlooking?

Where is your energy, your brilliance, your ability to innovate, needed? Where have you been too soft or hesitant? How can you use your mind to solve an important problem?

What is an important lesson to carry forward into this new season? What have you been discovering? What have you forgotten that you need to hold close?
You can certainly use this spread for specific questions, but I recommend using it for more general readings, simply making space for the cards to speak openly about how you can fully embrace the energy of Libra season. The sample spread below was done without a question, to show you how this reading can work even without a particular situation or challenge in mind.
4-Card Libra Season Example Spread
Card One: 4 of Swords
A card of boundaries and rest, the 4 of Swords offers us opportunities for beauty in stillness, quiet, and introspection.
Sometimes taking a step back from focused movement and giving our minds an opportunity to heal and recover can inspire us to new observations and insights, allowing us to see our world through fresh eyes.
Where might you be served by exercising caution? What brilliance can be found in rest? There can be such magic in moments of gentle awareness, and this season is inviting you to reflection, making space for the beauty that emerges in tranquility.
Card Two: 2 of Cups
Love, friendship, and community can inspire us to great heights, giving us the sensation that absolutely anything is possible. But deep, authentic, lasting relationships usually require some kind of compromise, so consider ways that you can practice reciprocity with the people you care about, particularly when building new connections.
This is what the 2 of Cups is trying to tell us here.
How can you be generous with ideas, inspiration, insights? Libra is so good at making space for multiple perspectives, so do so with an attitude of openness and grace and you may be pleasantly surprised by the ways that you’re invited to grow.
Card Three: The Empress
An archetype of abundance, generosity, and creation, the Empress may not immediately seem like a card that inspires righteous anger or marching into battle. But this figure is no shrinking violet, no tame and timid creature. The Empress is fierce and powerful, stands firmly in strength, is in full command of their resources and abilities and communities.
There’s so much space for courage in Libra season, and the Empress serves as a reminder to be protective of what you are creating, to be brave and bold in the things you are offering.
Where have you been hesitating or holding back? Even if your work isn’t flawless or finished, be proud of where you are presently, and where you are going.
Card Four: 2 of Wands
When new ideas come forward, it’s tempting to harness all of that passion and energy and just rush ahead, enjoying the enthusiasm for as long as it lasts. But chances are you’re working on something that holds the promise of real longevity, that offers opportunities for deep transformation and magic.
With the 2 of Wands, remember to take some time to plan, to move with intention, to find your focus.
What are you actually building? What does your vision of the future really look like? Don’t confuse movement with progress—if you’re thoughtful about the actions you take, there’s no limit to how far you can go.
This sample reading is one of protection, movement, and personal power, urging abundance and creative energy. As you step forward into Libra season, remember the truths you uncovered with Virgo and the Hermit, and don’t let your capacity for joy get lost in your desire for equality.
This is a time for thoughtful and deliberate action, for awareness, for honoring all of our options. Have a safe and beautiful Libra season!

It’s New Moon time! We just had a New Moon in Virgo, and this energy is strong at the moment. Bring on the Virgo New Moon horoscopes!
Virgo is seen as the sign of work, health, and daily habits. It’s an Earth sign so it’s practical and focused, and a Mutable sign so it’s constantly on the move. That means this sign can get a lot done, and while we’re under its influence, so can we.
This is coming at the perfect time! Mars has been retrograde in Aries for a little over a week now, and both Mars and Aries rule energy, drive, and taking initiative. With Mars retrograde, this has slowed down or been difficult to get a grasp on.
Thanks to the Virgo New Moon, we have a period right now where we can rediscover our productive sides, make use of energy we have, and actually get things done. This is energy you don’t want to miss out on!
Make sure you’re following the free astrology calendar so you always know when important astrology events are occurring!
New Moon in Virgo Meaning
A New Moon occurs when the transit (moving) Sun and Moon come together in the same exact position in the zodiac. We have a New Moon every four weeks or so.
New Moon Periods Are:
- New beginnings
Mars retrograde throws a wrench in those plans though, so something brand-spanking-new may not be the right idea. Instead, it may be better to focus on:
- What has already begun and needs to be finished or picked back up
- Something old that you can re-attempt
- Something you can finish quickly
Virgo New Moons come after Leo New Moons, which are times when we want to enjoy ourselves and have fun. With Virgo, we get down to business again, pay attention to the details, and tackle the little tasks and chores that we left for another day under the Leo energy.
We recently published a whole article on the Virgo New Moon, but here is a bit of a recap on what the New Moon in Virgo is great for:
- Getting organized
- Adjusting your schedule to be more productive
- Finding ways to increase efficiency
- Improving structure and order
- Clearing out junk (physical, spiritual, mental, emotional)
- Breaking bigger projects down into smaller ones
- Pursuing work you’re passionate about
- Tending to your physical self and pursuing healing
- Performing routine maintenance
