KnowVirgo Wknd Scope March 17 – 19, 2023
Virgo, clear and minimize. We’re just a few days away from the new astrological year and the cosmos is appropriately active. This weekend, Venus and the Lunar North Node will form a harmonious sextile to Saturn, evoking a reminder of your potential as a creator on this planet. You might receive epiphanies regarding your next step forwards, or sparks of inspiration as to what that may look like. Because your sector of wellness is being activated, it’ll be a good time to get your affairs in order. If possible, carve out the time to declutter your space (including digitally), organize and minimize. Treat cleaning, clearing and ticking off tasks as a meditation. You’re about to enter a brand new chapter, so this will feel both detoxifying and glorious.

KnowVirgo February ’23 Scope
Key themes: renewal, the oniric, taking care of your energy, lighting the fire of your passion, bringing your presence into the everyday mundane, nurturing your relationships
Dear Virgo, the month of February opens up with Ceres, the asteroid of motherly nurture, going retrograde in Libra on the 3rd. This happens in your area of resources and self-worth, inviting you to reflect on your relationships and how your needs can be better met within them.
The Full Moon in the passionate sign of Leo will happen on the 5th, at 1:28 pm EST, in your area of introspection and reflection. This is an invitation to go deeper into yourself. Your intuition will be heightened, so pay attention to your dreams and inner guidance. If you’re feeling more emotional and sensitive than usual, don’t look for validation on the outside. Give yourself all of the alone time you need, and validate yourself for all that you know you are. Creativity will be high, and tapping into your inner artist can help you connect with your worth.
Vesta, the asteroid of devotion and commitment, begins a new run around the zodiac on the 7th as it moves into Aries, opening up a deep space of devotion for your passions and desires. How often do you give yourself permission to say no to what drains you of your vital energy?
On the 11th, Mercury —the Messenger— moves into your area of health, daily routine, work and service, in the sign of Aquarius. Your mind will be clearer and you may feel a strong pull to focus on your health and wellness. Don’t ignore this! You’ll be able to think outside the box and come up with new and innovative ways to take care of yourself. Trust your intuition and be open to trying new things.
Pallas, the asteroid of wisdom and strategic thinking, will enter your area of friendships and community in the sign of Cancer on the 16th. Your intuition and emotional intelligence will be activated, allowing you to connect with others in deeper and more meaningful ways. Don’t be afraid to get a little vulnerable.
On the 18th, the Sun’s exit from Aquarius will give way to Pisces Season, followed by the New Moon also in the dreamy sign of Pisces, on the 20th at 2:06 am EST, activating your area of partnerships. Breathe deep, feel your body, allow yourself to let go. Trust the emotional depth of Pisces energy to guide you towards deeper connections and understanding with those closest to you. Soften up any rigid expectations you may have of others and your relationships, and allow yourself to be open and raw with the ones you love.
Also on the 20th, Venus starts a new cycle around the zodiac as she comes out of Pisces and moves into Aries. Things can get hot and heavy in the bedroom when you feel safe, loved and seen. Venus rules intimacy, and in this area of your chart that has to do with vulnerability, it goes deep, aiding you in your healing process. Allow yourself to be accompanied through your grief, allow yourself to be supported, it takes a village.
Ruling Planet: Mercury, the Planet of Communication
Where You’ll Find Them: Organizing their closet, setting up a lunch date weeks in advance, studying in a cozy library.
What They Avoid: Messy environments, gossip, nosy people.
Virgo, the sixth sign of the zodiac, is symbolized by the Virgin, but it doesn’t mean that Virgo’s a goody-two-shoes. Instead, it symbolizes the pure energy of the earthy Virgo’s soul. Virgo is the sign that wants to strip down, take away all the fluff, and go back to the basics.
The minimalist of the zodiac, many Virgos seek to live and exist in a clean, clear, stress-free environment. The ironic part of that desire is that Virgos often stress themselves out by trying to restore order to their lives. Some Virgos are contrarians, so even though they seek order, their lives may always appear to be a mess. Virgo is often focused on the small details of life that everyone else misses. They find peace in routine and structure, and they love feeling efficient, useful and in control. Expectation vs. reality is something they have to keep in mind in order to maintain their sanity.
Professionally, Virgos work well alone as well as in a team, and they often get the job done better than everyone else (but they still beat themselves up about how they could have done an even better job). Virgo is a perfectionist, and while this can lead to them creating phenomenal works of art, it can also lead to them paralyzing themselves and never putting their work out there out of fear of failure or ridicule.
Virgos may suffer from low self-esteem due to the super high standards they place on themselves. This can also lead to them being consumed with nervousness, which is why Virgo would benefit from introducing meditation into their daily routine, as well as gentle exercises and frequent time spent outdoors, simply breathing and letting go.
As friends, Virgos may at first come off as cold or unfeeling, when in reality they are just cautious of who they let into their intimate circle. If you become one of those lucky people, you’ll see the wild, untamed Virgo come out. This side of Virgo is unpredictable and exciting. Virgo isn’t always a gentle soul, watching quietly from the background. They can be reckless and fearless, going out all night and talking to new people left and right. They just have to be in a certain mood and around the right people in order to activate that side. Ultimately, Virgo seeks friends who won’t judge them and with whom they can feel comfortable being their most authentic self.
In love, Virgos are often depicted as being prudes, but once again, it’s just a self-defense mechanism. In fact, Virgo can be one of the most sexual signs of the zodiac when they merge with the right person. Virgo prefers cultivating a deep intellectual connection with someone first and then falling in love with their body. Once that happens, you can unlock a very sensual and romantic side of Virgo.
Virgo will intellectualize their feelings and put their emotions through a filter before expressing themselves, and that may sometimes make their partner feel like Virgo isn’t as emotionally attached to the relationship. That’s not necessarily the case — it’s just that Virgo has a specific way of showing love, mostly through the actions they do. They pay attention to the small things their lover needs, and while they can be nitpickey and critical of their partner, it always comes from a place of love and wanting the best for them. Virgo is all about self and mutual improvement, and they want a lover who’s unafraid of embarking on such a journey of evolution.
