Virgo Monthly Horoscope for June 2020
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22) — The peculiar message of your charts is about being realistic, pragmatic and focused on your goals. I only say peculiar because this is not the kind of thing astrologers usually suggest for Virgos in the audience, so it feels a little like selling ice to an Inuit.
That said, your chart describes you as being productive on an industrial scale, though with the potential to be misdirected, and thus to lose the energy rather than harness it.
Therefore, work with tools such as an action plan, a business plan, a strategy sheet, a flow chart or a tangible agenda (all being basically the same thing). This will ensure that you start with clear goals and steps toward reaching them. Then you have a reference point for sizing up whether you’re on track or not. You will need to come back to your plan frequently, pretty much every time you make a decision, to ensure that it’s consistent with your larger goals.
The key is to see every decision as getting you closer to or further from your objective, in a moment when time, money and other resources are precious. Take every opportunity to engage economy and efficiency, and keep checking for leakage, waste and errors.
Venus retrograde in your career and reputation angle is yet another call for a review of what you think of as your most cherished goals. A lot has changed in the past few months, more than anyone would have imagined. This calls for making a careful evaluation of what you consider a priority and why. You have your options open, though that would not matter if you don’t see them for what they are.
Therefore, be bold, be comprehensive and let your creativity flow.
Sign Description for Virgo
(Aug. 23-Sep. 22) — Virgo is a mentally oriented, highly intelligent, nervous sign that needs to remember it’s made of the element earth, not air. That’s another way of saying that your life is a constant process of translating from idea to reality and back. Ideas are not enough. Yours is not the sign of science but applied science.
The difference is similar to that between working in theoretical physics and learning how to be a master baker, or using your skill in chemistry to be an expert hair colorist. Applying ideas can be challenging because the mental world changes so much faster than the often-stuck dynamics of the physical world, and we’re often at a loss for how to translate between the two. That would be your job: to identify ideas and how to apply them; to match up problems with corresponding solutions.
You must be a master of what you do, though you’re likely to have at least two dominant areas of professional competence and two entirely different careers you’re developing. You have a fast, inventive mind but may squander that on doubt, which is rooted in self-doubt. If you’re ever wondering where your creative energy goes, look there.
Of all the signs, Virgo needs to cultivate self-esteem as a primary life strategy. One way to do that is to mediate on fairness, and make sure that what you do actually honors your true principles. Having good self-esteem doesn’t mean you’re better than others — only that you are right to be you, to accept yourself and to be accepted for who you are — in that order.
This is one reason why so many Virgos opt for helping careers; it helps you to feel useful. You have a way of contradicting yourself and expecting others not to notice; it would help if you admit these contradictions so you don’t leave everyone constantly wondering where they stand with you.
Men born under this sign are well advised to make good friends with their inner woman. Virgos can be extremely hard on themselves and need to learn how to replace the criticism with a balanced level of self-appreciation, and valuing the subtle things in life. The planet of Virgo is ever-changing Mercury, and the mysterious Chiron is a close cousin.
If you want to understand yourself better, study where these planets are in your chart. You’re also sensitive to Mercury retrograde, so make sure you know when that’s happening and plan accordingly. Yours is a mutable sign, coming at the end of a season, leading into the next.
