When is Virgo season 2022? The celestial happening is officially winding down, so mark your calendars.
We embraced this late-summer, early-autumn astrology event as a time to regroup after a busy Leo season. Considering the cosmos gave us the green light for some R&R, we happily obliged with a few self-care day ideas. (No need to tell us twice!)
"What is unique about Virgo season is that it encourages us to be selfish, but in the best possible way," said Nebula's astrologer, Patrick Price (opens in new tab). "Not only is it a much calmer time than most other seasons, but it is also the time for us to take time for ourselves."

Let's take that mindset moving forward into Libra season, as we're being tasked with ensuring our interactions are balanced and fair. However, we do need to address our own needs before tending to others during this new astrological season. Particularly around the time of the September 2022 new moon, we'll be forced to get both areas of our lives in sync.
"While the new moon is unfolding, it will oppose Jupiter retrograde in Aries. We may feel this tug-o-war between the Libra mindset of 'we' and the Aries mindset of 'me,'" said astrologer Liz Simmons (opens in new tab). "Libra’s energy requires peace and harmony, especially with the opposition to Jupiter retrograde. Focus on calming your mind through whatever works for you."

Arguably one of the most relaxing zodiac seasons of the year, according to Price, Virgo season also asked us to examine our routines and make adjustments where need be—it was all about peace and growth, gifts astrology fans truly appreciate.
"The things we do every single day are the things that define us and dictate what kind of a life we live! Not where you want to be? Which ones serve you? Which ones are holding you back? What parts of your life are you being overactive," Price asked.
Though it felt like we were enjoying the same slow-mo Cancer season vibes, we did start to get things done thanks to Virgo season. Procrastination be damned! Take that!
"Take small steps that will ultimately pay heed," Price suggested of this time. "Whatever the small things are in your daily routines that you have been putting off, embrace them."
Who was most affected by Virgo season?
All members of the zodiac were expected to feel the season's call for personal growth and TLC, but there were three signs that might've felt it a bit more than others. Cancers experienced a busy social season whereas Virgos (of course) was embracing that self-care motto to the fullest.
As for Geminis? That's when things got a little tricky.
"Your ruling planet Mercury is also the ruling planet of this season, so your energy levels [felt] more heightened, which only made finding relaxation even more of a challenge than it would have been," Price said.
It was more important than ever for Geminis to slow down...even if they didn't want to.
But now, taking Virgos' best lessons with us, let's get ready for all-things Libra.
"I think what’s really cool about Libra season is that it does give us a focus on relationships, but that new moon in September also reminds us to find our individuality in our relationships," astrologer Desiree Roby Antila previously told My Imperfect Life. "It’s a great time for self actualization and relationships."
With that in mind, let's all enjoy Virgos time in the spotlight while we still can, shall we? For a look at all of the astrology seasons, our 2022 calendar will keep you starry-eyed followers in the know about the cosmos and all of their incredibly busy plans.
