KnowVirgo December ’23 Scope

Key themes: Play, pleasure, romance, deep conversations, softening the heart, home and family, roots and ancestry, community

Dear Virgo,

The month of December begins with Mercury moving into Capricorn on the 1st, offering you the focus needed to keep furthering your creative projects. Bring more structure to your leisure time. Think about how you can include play and relaxation into your schedule. This will have you feeling in control of your day-to-day in a more creative way.

Venus, the Planet of Love and Beauty, will enter the depths of Scorpio on the 4th, where it will be until the 29th. This happens in your area of communication and daily activities, inviting you to get deep. There will be no room for superficial connections. Go ahead and have the difficult and emotionally charged conversations. Remember that love and that respecting boundaries requires honesty. Even when things are hard to say, trust that you have the emotional strength to sustain and navigate the feelings that arise.

Neptune will go direct on the 6th in Pisces, where it has been dissolving your boundaries and enabling spiritual awakening through intimate connections. This journey has been opening your heart in ways that you couldn’t imagine were possible. Check in to see where you are at now, as you still have a couple more years of this left to go. How are you owning up to the new softer (but not delible) boundaries that you have been forging within your intimate spaces?

We have the New Moon in Sag on the 12th, at 6:32 pm EST, happening in your area of home and ancestry. This is an invitation to pause and to look within. How often are you focused on others? How often does your approval come from the outside much more than it does from within? Work on breathing deep and feeling the validity of your inner world, and its capacity to sustain you. You are already perfect, Virgo.

On the 13th, Mercury goes retrograde until January 1st, giving the end of 2023 a reflective mood. Check in on your creative expressions and your ability to let loose and to flow. You have such a strong structure and this actually makes you a master at letting go, but you’re also a master at sabotaging yourself into believing you can control the flow of life, and this is where things get complicated. The first 10 days of this transit will be a time to witness what keeps you from giving into and flowing with your creative muses.

We welcome Capricorn season on the 21st, shining a light on the reflective journey that Mercury retrograde is taking you through. For you the end of the year always represents an invitation to embrace more joy, pleasure and romance in your life.

Then on the 23rd Mercury moves back into Sag, connecting you with the things that were going on within your home and family around the last week of November, offering a deeper perspective.
On the 26th, we have the Full Moon in Cancer, becoming exact at 7:33 pm EST, shining a light on friendship and community. Check in, ask yourself if you’re hanging with the kind of people that allow you to grow professionally, emotionally, and spiritually. Important conversations may come up within your groups. Don’t try to escape, no matter how uncomfortable things may get, make space for what needs to be explored and transformed.

Also on the 26th, Chiron goes direct in Aries in your area of intimacy and joint ventures. Check in to see how you wish to keep healing your boundaries and the ways in which you decide to share and explore yourself with others.

On the 29th, Venus will enter Sag, inviting you to take a journey through your ancestral lineage for the next 26 days. Things will get sweeter at home, and you may crave more time to cozy up with your family, your furry friends, or a glass of wine and a book. Invite your chosen family over for reading circles, or to explore each other’s natal charts, or to just talk about life. Make more space to be around the ones that accept you as you are, this is no time to minimize who you are and what you have to give in order to be embraced.

Jupiter will go direct in Taurus on the 30th, reminding you that this is the time to be dreaming boldly, abundantly, and expansively! This is a great energy to close the year and to think about your New Year’s Resolutions.

2023 hasn’t been easy, personally or collectively, and 2024 will be a year of big shifts and revelations with Pluto moving into Aquarius. We are moving towards the world we want to see come true, and even if at times we may feel close to losing hope, we’ll all be creating the kinds of connections and communities where we feel more supported within our personal and collective dreams. Connection is what will create the possibilities that will overshadow any feelings of hopelessness.

As Mercury goes direct in Sag on the first day of 2024, start the year with this mantra “I know what I need to keep doing, feeling and being in order for my foundations to expand, in order to ground deeper into my sense of abundance. I allow myself to explore, I allow my mind to roam free”.

KnowVirgo November ’23 Scope

Key themes: intimacy, powerful and healing conversations, relationship and commitment, owning your story, expanding your mind and your heart, acting on what you know is right, making space for your truth to shine in all areas of your life.

Dear Virgo, we may all still be feeling a bit jet lagged from the eclipse season. What hunger have you been left with when it comes to your future and the expansion that you yearn for? Allow this to inspire your actions. It’s time to dig deeper into the desires that move you.

November arrives with Saturn shifting to go direct on the 4th in the ethereal sign of Pisces. This is happening in your area of partnership, where for the past months you’ve been reviewing your need for commitment, what you want in a relationship, and how you’re able to show up for your significant others. It’ll be easier for you to create, to strengthen, or to renegotiate the inner and interpersonal structures needed for the kind of relationships you want and deserve.

On the 8th, Venus, the Planet of Love and Beauty, will leave your sign to enter its home sign of Libra, where it will be until December 4th. Happening in your area of resources and self-worth, it’s a good time to check in on what your non-negotiables are in relationship. Listen to your body, it will tell you a lot about what you want, who you want, what feels right and what feels off. If there are issues with how much you or the other feel valued within your current intimate relationships, the root of these issues may become clearer. If you’re up for it, it’s a great time to talk, to share your feelings, and to find what feels pleasurable, reassuring and safe for you both.

On the 10th, Mercury, the Planet of Communication and Exchange, will enter the wisdom-seeking sign of Sag, where it will be until December 1st. We live in a colonized world, what began 500 years ago has not ended, we’re just in the continuation of it, and the current world events are heart wrenching proof. Mercury in your area of roots, family, and ancestry, gives you the chance to revisit your story, how it has been told to you, how you tell it, how you wish to tell it, how you can help break it free.

The New Moon in Scorpio is happening on the 13th, exact at 4:27 am EST, in your area of communication and daily rituals, emphasizing the energy you’ve been swimming in since Scorpio Season began on October 23rd. Are you being patient with yourself? Don’t let the current pull you along. Do your best to remain centered and to take control among all of the noise and things to take care of. Your communications have a way of creating pathways for healing, transformation and renewal. Remember that your words have power. Be intentional about what you say and how you say it. Life is always speaking to you. Pay attention to the mysterious messages that come your way.

On the 22nd, we move into Sag Season, as the Sun shifts into the sign of the Centaur, in the area of your life that has to do with the foundations that sustain and nourish you. What can you do to counteract the epidemic of isolation? What can you do to open your heart within a world that values war over life? Make sure that your approach towards self-preservation is more about becoming the love that you want to see in the world, opposed to locking your body, your mind, and your heart behind closed doors.

On the 24th, Mars moves in the sign of Sag as well, where it will be until January 4th, helping us to stand for what we believe in and to bring our passion into action. This is a reminder that Sag at your root asks for expansion, for challenging the status quo and the ideas that have held you and the world in the same place for far too long. Its a call for you to come out of the comfort that doesn’t allow for revolution.

A Full Moon in your area of professional pursuits and social standing always brings awareness to how you balance what sustains and nurtures you versus what allows you to be someone out in the world. This is the case with the Full Moon in Gemini happening on the 27th, exact at 4:16 am EST. We all leave much of our personal life at home in order to go out into the workforce. We all curate a certain image when it comes to networking for the professional or social positions we desire. This Moon is asking that you are no longer willing to keep separate. It’s time to check in and see if the masks you wear out in the world are weighing too much on your soul.

I’ll leave you with a poem from Nayyirah Waheed that says: “stay soft. it looks beautiful on you.”

KnowVirgo October ’23 Scope

Key themes: organizing your finances, becoming creative about bringing more beauty into your life, just being yourself, sensuality and flirtiness, being daring in your creative and romantic life, facing your conflicts, being patient, staying present amidst all of the noise, finding ways to renew your energy, rethinking your path ahead

Dear Virgo, the month of October begins by pulling focus towards your accounts. Take the time to sort things out and get things clear and in order when it comes to your finances, as Mercury will be transiting Libra in your area of resources. But as Libra and the second house are ruled by Venus, the planet of beauty, you’ll be called to keep your accounts in order while indulging in your desire for beauty. Go all out if you can, or find ways to keep it simple, like adding an inspiring quote or poem to your wall or desk, or getting a cutting from a friend and growing a plant in that empty corner. Allow Mercury to spark your creativity!

On the 8th, Venus is entering your sign, where it will be during the next month, inspiring you to be you. This is an invitation to love and accept yourself just as you are. I promise people will recognize and flatter the heck out of you! Allow yourself to become more playful and flirty. Let that sensual and freaky side that you’re always hiding show.

Pluto is going direct on the 10th, where it will make its last stretch through Capricorn before heading back into Aquarius in January. Please remember that life is too short to play it safe. If you know you want to be more daring in your creative projects, then please stop holding yourself back. When it comes to romance, it’ll be a good time to refresh your non-negotiables, and to connect with the pleasures you wish to pursue.

On the 12th, Mars will enter its home sign of Scorpio, helping us all get deep and serious about the pursuit of our goals. Conflicts may arise within your intimate space or around you, and it wouldn’t be wise to ignore it. Be with what’s going on, be with the process, even when it’s not a particularly pleasant experience. Stop delaying confrontations that are bound to happen sooner or later. Dare to dig deeper.

Eclipse Season is back, as we welcome the New Moon Annular Solar Eclipse in Libra becoming exact at 1:55 pm on the 14th. This Eclipse comes with an encouraging energy, it wants you to recognize your talents, to understand how to best work with your resources, and to ask for a just retribution for your efforts. There is a great opportunity to heal from the feelings of unworthiness left from past or current situations where your talents or your own person weren’t valued and respected or all that it is. Know your worth, surround yourself by those that see and honor it, set boundaries, say no when it’s needed. I know we live in a world where we can’t always afford to do this, so for the moments when you can’t, make sure to cultivate that earthy Virgo magic that knows how to protect and renew its own energy.

We welcome Scorpio Season, with Mercury entering Scorpio on the 22nd, followed by the Sun on the 23rd. Be patient with what is required of you. It may be hard to get a handle on your precious time and energy during this next month. Even if your calendar is too full, make sure to schedule an escape from your regular programming whenever you get the chance. Finding spaces and activities to renew your energy will be very important.

The month of October comes to an end with the second Eclipse of the Season, the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Taurus, becoming exact at 4:24 pm on the 28th. There’s something about your path that is being revealed. It may be time to rethink how you want to move forward. It may be time to readjust the philosophies that sustain your way of thinking. Flashes of insight are bound to come through. Your perspective will be going through a shift. Things that seemed distant, aren’t anymore, and therefore don’t scare you as much. Worries that have been weighing you down may lift, as you begin to be able to see things in a whole new light.

KnowVirgo September ’23 Scope

Key themes: introspection, self-discovery, patience, listening to your calling, following it despite what the outside world thinks, getting finances in order, emotional release

Dear Virgo,
You already think way too much before expressing yourself, so this Mercury retrograde in your area of self-discovery may really feel like an annoyance to the part of you that is wanting to revamp the way you present yourself to the world. But on the other hand, it may also feel like just what you need in order to get into a more inner and self-reflective mood. That new you is already flourishing deep within, there’s nothing stopping it. Take things slow, and after the 15th when Mercury stations to move forward, you’ll begin to feel freer about letting your new sense of self out into the world.

Venus is finally stationing to go direct on the 3rd, after having taken you on a ride during the past 40 days through the depths of your emotional processes, and the sweetness and renewal available in rest and spending quality time with yourself. Things will still be falling into place until October 7th when Venus comes out of its post-retrograde shadow phase. What has come up for you regarding fear of intimacy, closeness, pleasure and love?

The next day, on the 4th, Jupiter will station to go retrograde for what is left of the year. Jupiter is currently transiting your area of long-term plans, inviting you to have bold dreams when it comes to your future. These next four months of Jupiter’s retrograde motion will be about tapping into what it means to honor your calling. Dare to ask life’s big questions, and dare to find the answers through experience, not just intellect.

On the 6th, Mercury will enter the heart of the Sun during its retrograde motion, helping you clear away the opinions that others have been projecting onto you and your practice, good or bad, that have been steering you away from the actions you know you have to take.

We have the New Moon in your sign on the 14th, at 9:40 pm EST, inspiring you to depart from the things that keep you safe but don’t allow you to grow. Feel the call, this is a time for emancipation. Don’t try to make sense of it, or over analyze it. There is nothing to understand with the rational mind, this call is coming from a place of feeling, and all you can do is trust and go with it. No more escaping into people that don’t cherish you. If loneliness kicks in, tap into your spiritual nature, connect with the boundless mystery that life truly is.

On the next day, the 15th, Mercury will station to go direct, and things will begin to speed up a bit. The things that we’re causing you frustration, confusion or delays regarding your sense of self will begin to loosen up little by little, until the 29th where we’ll all be more in the clear once the post-retrograde period is over.

We welcome Libra Season on the 23rd, shining a light on your financial life. This is your opportunity to bring order to your finances, and also to face the fears that come up, and find ways to get past the things that stall your growth in this area of your life. Get clear about what is a non-negotiable, and set that energetic stamp. Your financial stability is asking for your commitment. Whatever lessons are coming through money-wise, know that they are speaking to something deeper than your bank balance. The rays of the Sun will be accompanying you this next month to help you get to the root of the issues.

On the 29th, we will have the Full Moon in Aries at 5:57 am EST, shining a light on the quality of the exchanges in your life and the healing that they have brought you. This Full Moon wants to help you release something that has been stuck in your system for far too long. Do what you can to aid yourself through this healing process. You are emptying out, and it’s important that you fill this new space with self-affirmation. So be gentle, be patient, be loving. Grant yourself permission to grieve. Don’t rush through what hurts. Hold yourself through it. Lean on the ones that are willing to help hold you through it.

KnowVirgo August ’23 Scope

Key themes: taking well deserved breaks, celebrating yourself, intimacy, acknowledging your emotions, self-acceptance, renewal, defending what is yours, curiosity, intuition, trust, shared abundance

Dear Virgo, we kick the month of August off with the Full Moon in Aquarius becoming exact at 2:31 pm EST, on the 1st. This happens in your area of work, health and day-to-day routines. Please don’t push yourself to exhaustion these days. Do the work without exceeding your limits. Acknowledge and celebrate the progress you’ve made at work and/or in your health practices lately, no matter how big or small that progress might look like, recognize it as a step forward. Give yourself a breather during this Full Moon. Make sure that at the end of the day you make time to relax and have a little bit of fun, without thinking about what’s next on your plate. Your body will thank you for it.

Venus will be retrograde throughout all of the month of August and into the first days of September. This is an event that happens once every 18 months, and brings with it a deeper understanding to what we want from our relationships, how our current relationships are flowing and how open we are to intimacy. This 40 day transit is happening in Leo in the deepest area of your chart, where your unconscious pains lie, and where you have a chance to let go of what no longer works in order to come deeper into yourself. It’s a beautiful time to explore your fears surrounding pleasure, closeness and love. You don’t have to do this process alone, find comfort in those friends that are there for you no matter what. It may also be a good time to start therapy if you feel like it becomes too much for you emotionally.

On the 16th, we have the New Moon in Leo, highlighting this Venus retrograde process. This will be an especially intense Moon, as it will also be conjunct Black Moon Lilith and square Uranus. Those parts of you that society or your family and community don’t make space for, are crying out to be acknowledged. They are not dark, they are not evil, they are not wrong. You are not wrong. Look at what you hold deep within, even if it comes with pain and uncomfort. Be fierce about accepting yourself. Find safe spaces where you can air these things out without being judged. Where you can be held for all of your complexity.

Welcome Virgo season! Things have been intense, and they will continue to be for a little longer, but the Sun will begin to bring you back to life during the month of your birthday. You’ve most likely been in a very introverted mood lately, give yourself the chance to get out there, without forgetting to take good care of your energy and your inner and emotional needs. Mercury also goes retrograde here in Virgo on the same day, the 23rd, so make sure to be selective with what you put out there, how you do it, and with the social settings that you’re being invited into.

On the 27th, Mars shifts from Virgo to Libra into your area of resources and sense of self-worth. Bring your attention to your needs and your frustrations regarding what’s owed to you, be it material, emotional, or having to do with respect and recognition. Taking action to defend yourself isn’t always a viable option, but sometimes it’s just a matter of daring to face your fears. How can you better defend your time, your energy levels and what’s yours?

On the next day, Uranus will be going into its yearly retrograde phase for the next 5 months. Pay attention to the new adventures that are calling out to you. Follow your curiosity to learn new things, even if they seem too unconventional to you. Follow your intuition. Your inner wisdom is getting stronger.

We end the month of August with the Full Moon in the sign of Pisces becoming exact at 9:35 pm EST, on the 30th. This happens in your area of one-on-one relationships and committed partnerships, inviting you to connect with your ability to trust. How are your trust levels? Do you trust too little? Too much? Do you trust the ones you love? It’s a beautiful time to explore if any inability to trust stems from valid reasons within your current relationships, or from past traumas that have nothing to do with those bonds. Try and loosen up where there’s actual space for it.

The north node in Aries and the south node in Libra have been settling into your area of intimacy and shared resources and your area of self-worth and personal resources, respectively. How do you feel you might be gaining new direction by defying the scarcity narratives that tend to block your access to abundance?

KnowVirgo July ’23 Scope

Key themes: generosity, forward movement, acting on your instincts, shadow work, honoring your boundaries, rest, recoup, honest self-expression, journey of self-discovery.

Dear Virgo, the month of July begins by feeding the flames of your creative fire with the Full Moon in Capricorn becoming exact on the 3rd at 7:38 am EST. Tap into the offering that your heart wants to put out into the world. There’s no one to compete with, your path is your own. So if self-doubt arises, remember that this time is all about forward movement. Take advantage of the roads that are open up for you. Be gentle with yourself, and remember that there are ways to allow for trust and doubt to co-exist. There are ways to use the power of your fear to propel you forward.

Mars enters your sign on the 10th, giving you the drive needed to focus on your personal ambitions and journey of self-development. Cultivate your inner flame, and find ways to tap into your wilderness, your instincts, your intuition. This is the place where you should be taking decisions from during the next month and half. It’s time to fully occupy up your own space.

On the 11th, we have another shift in energy when Mercury moves into Leo, the sign that rules over your deep inner waters. It’s ok to put some conversations on hold for the next two and a half weeks. You’re in need of some alone and private time, honor this need. Dream journaling, and writing about your day and your feelings can help you to explore all of the movements that your psyche is currently going through. Worries can begin to fade away once you put them into words.

As the North Node enters Aries for the next 18 months on the 17th, it wants to remind you that you can always begin again. And again. And again. Each and everyday you wake to is a new opportunity to restart. If you wander down a new road which doesn’t work, just release yourself from it. Don’t make your approach to life more difficult than what life already is. This will be a time to work on untangling yourself from the collaborations that are no longer viable, and reinvesting in the ones that are.

The Sun enters the passionate sign of Leo on the 22nd, shining a light on your need to rest, and what needs to be healed. Venus goes retrograde on the same day, and will be in backwards motion for the next six weeks, what will come up for review will have to do with your willingness towards intimacy and commitment, and any fears that may be keeping you from experiencing more love, clonessness and pleasure within your relationships. The more you dare to explore these emotions, the more you’ll be able to heal. A little vulnerability can go a long way.

On the next day, Chiron goes retrograde in Aries, reminding you to pause, to give yourself space to go deep, and to feel. Don’t ignore your grief. Loss hurts, change hurts, and it’s ok to still be processing things that happened a while ago. There’s no manual that tells us how to move through pain, we’ve all got to find our way, give yourself the chance to move through it. Let yourself be held and supported by your loved ones.

Pluto will find itself right in the middle between the North and South Node on the 23rd, 25th and 28th, reminding you that life’s too short to play it safe. Here Pluto is serving as a link between the past and the future, pointing towards what we need to let go of in order to move forward. Pluto is inviting you to be bold and provocative in your expression, especially if you’re a creator. If there’s anything you’re not doing because “what if my family sees it”, or because of what anybody may think, stop that! Allow yourself to go down that route that you know you need to walk, no matter how taboo it may seem.

On the 28th, Mercury will enter your sign, inviting you to let go of your need to be right. Perfection is in how you flow and how you uphold your values. Perfection isn’t perfect, nothing is. So do your best to let go of the outcome, and try to just enjoy the ride. Open up to rediscovering yourself within your exchanges and communications.
