Your Monthly Horoscope

Been putting something off? Virgo season is the time to take action. Find out what more this month has in store.

Leo season is officially over. Now it's Virgo's time to shine.

To celebrate, today we're introducing Visions of Virgo. The limited-edition collection includes 6 all-new tattoos inspired by the zodiac's most detail-oriented and down-to-earth sign.

Designed by Brooklyn-based tattoo artist Mira Mariah (aka @girlknewyork), these pieces are part of our ongoing Astrology Series. We release new tattoos each zodiac season and pair them with a horoscope written by our resident astrologer, Rasheem.

Shop the series for a limited time, and keep scrolling to check out your horoscope for the month ahead.

Leo season was full of fun and adventure. I hope you all managed to enjoy it because, on August 22, Virgo season kicks off with a bang. Just hours before the Sun makes its transit, we experience another Full Moon in Aquarius (trust me, it's rare that the last two full moons occurred in the same sign). This Full Moon takes place on the 29th degree of Aquarius — or the anaretic degree — and brings a powerful energy of completion with it.

Then the Sun says sayonara to Leo and zooms into Virgo territory. The pragmatic sign is here to remind us that we can always find ways to improve. That energy peaks with the New Moon in Virgo on September 6 and encourages us to look for ways to act in service of others. This lunar cycle opposes Neptune in Pisces, highlighting the importance of being aware of how we react to the suffering of those around us. We may have a subconscious need to self-sacrifice to help others or to feel in control. But this could be preventing others from learning the lessons necessary for personal growth. This isn't to say that you shouldn't help people. It's just a reminder that we shouldn't be putting the needs of others before our own. 

We end the season with an emotionally charged Full Moon in Pisces on September 20. At the same time, the Sun will be in an out-of-sign conjunction with Mars, giving us a burst of energy and calling on us to pursue our passions. The Moon also conjuncts Neptune in Pisces, which will increase our empathy and compassion for others (but could also tempt us to escape our problems by retreating to a fantasy world). Ignoring your problems won't help you in the long run, though, so try to avoid this. Grounding techniques can be helpful around this lunar cycle, so practice meditation, try breathwork, or simply take some time to connect with nature.

This season will be packed with bold energy and big change. Take it day by day, and remember to give yourself some TLC. That's the best way to get your life on track before we slide into Libra season on September 22.

Virgo (Aug 23 - Sept 22)

Happy birthday, Virgo! It's your season, and you're ready for the attention. This is an ideal time to shift your focus to prioritize the things that matter most to you — whether that's a job, relationship, or a new hobby you're pursuing. You'll be feeling more charismatic and "seen" this month. Use it to your advantage to bring your dreams to life.

Libra (Sept 23 - Oct 22)

Virgo season probably isn't much fun for you, Libra. This month, your 12th house — which governs isolation, solitary living, and completion of cycles — is lit up. You're a sign that likes to extend outward, but this time is actually meant for you to turn inward. Any extra baggage from old relationships, jobs, or other negative experiences you're carrying with you needs to be released to help you make room for the new. Then you can celebrate your birthday season as a better you!

Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21)

With your 11th house of community activated, you're gonna be a social butterfly this season, Scorpio. You'll be mingling with lots of past friends and making some new friends too. Virgo is just as particular as you about who you let into your life. The sign's influence over you this season makes you even more intuitive when it comes to picking out the fakes and the snakes.

Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21)

You're feeling the heat this season, Sagittarius. You may be experiencing some pressure in your professional life. When that happens, it's important to remember that if you show up and do your absolute best, the pressure will pass and your career will flourish.

Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19)

What do you want to discover, Capricorn? That's a question you've been asking yourself a lot lately, as your 9th house of adventure is ignited. During this time, you can actually learn something new each day. So get out of your comfort zone and turn every experience into a learning moment.

Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)

Keep an eye on your spending this season. If you can clear any debts, now's the time to do so. You may also find yourself having much more fun in the bedroom (wink wink), but if you just want a fling, then be mindful, Aquarius. Catching feelings is basically guaranteed at this time.

Pisces (Feb 19 - Mar 20)

Virgo is influencing your 7th house, causing you to take a deeper look at your relationships. You might be showing off your sweet side to try to create better relationships with those around you. But don't put all the focus on others, Pisces. Remember to nurture the relationship you have with yourself, too.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 19)

Could your routine use some improvement, Aries? You might be feeling overwhelmed and overworked — and this month's intense energy isn't going to help. But Virgo loves to show us how we can transform and improve, which means now's the time to get your daily routine back on track. You have to maintain a balance between professional responsibilities and your own well-being.

Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20)

You're relishing in the energy you're getting from your fellow earth sign this season, Taurus. Your 5th house of romance, sex, and creativity is lighting up. That makes this the perfect time to focus on your passions. Do what makes you feel good this month. Live it up!

Gemini (May 21 - Jun 20)

I know you love to socialize, Gemini, but this season has something different in store. You're going to spend a lot more time at home, reconnecting with your space. You may also find yourself interested in learning about your family and your roots. Either way, be sure to take some time to rest and recharge this month. You'll be back in your element when Libra season rolls around and you're back on your social game.

Cancer (Jun 21 - Jul 22)

You'll be socializing like mad this month, Cancer. It'll keep you busy, but it should be a good time too. Be wary of gossip and drama, though — you don't want to be the one getting wrapped up in it. 

Leo (Jul 23 - Aug 22)

Now that your birthday season is over, you're feeling a little more like yourself, Leo. This will benefit you greatly, as Virgo's hardworking energy motivates you to put in the work and finish up any long-term projects during the month ahead. You'll also be able to discern whether or not projects and relationships you've been committed to are worth it, especially if you haven't been getting much in return. Keep doing you. The rewards will come soon. 

That's it for our astrological insights this month. If you want to rock one of our new Virgo-inspired designs, hurry! Because once this zodiac season is over, you won't be able to purchase these pieces again.
