Virgo in 2021

Planetary Energies, Influences & Key Dates for Virgo in 2021

All dates in this article are based on Universal Time Zone



Your Ruling Planet Mercury is associated with the relaying and organisation of information. It travels quite rapidly through the zodiac, in spite of several apparent stops and reversals known as Mercury Retrogrades.

08 January Mercury moves into Aquarius This placement is great for changing your view of things and coming up with outside-the-box ideas. It is helpful if you’re hoping to connect with kindred spirits (possibly from very different backgrounds to your own) and it should support your attempts to work with colleagues in group or team settings. But be on the lookout for sudden changes of direction that could affect your health and wellbeing or interfere with your daily routine.

15 March Mercury moves into Pisces Most of your more enlightened ideas are likely to originate from your imagination and be inspired by dreams & visions. As they will probably be far more interesting and entertaining than ordinary life, you could get lost in them. Gazing out of the window when you are supposed to be concentrating on the task in hand could get you into trouble, in more ways than one! You may be feeling more sleepy than usual, so make sure you allow plenty of switch-off time.

04 April Mercury moves into Aries This placement of your ruling planet will help to keep your skills sharp and spot-on, and your techniques in tip-top condition. You’ll probably be running very quickly through your to-do list, ticking off the chores as you go. Be careful when handling sharp objects as you could be more accident-prone than usual. Look out for a tendency to be the one that puts their hand up first, while your colleagues sit back and watch you do all the work.

19 April Mercury moves into Taurus This placement is particularly good for taking a more laid-back approach. If you stop and think about it – it is the simple things of life that are usually the most satisfying and enjoyable. You may want to spend quality time surrounded by natural beauty, which will calm and sustain you. But knowing you, it won’t be long before your fingers are itching to take cuttings or tidy things up!

04 May Mercury moves into Gemini Now is the time for collecting facts, figures, news, views & data that might come in handy if you need to refer to it for guidance or instruction. You’ll probably have the urge to organise your information and file it neatly away for easy access. But please make time for some fun – possibly with pals from your peer group, neighbourhood or local community.

11 July Mercury moves into Cancer You might be feeling you’ve had more than enough socialising and are now in need of some privacy. Time spent in your own space will help you to digest your own memories, thoughts & impressions. Pottering about among your own things with soothe and comfort you and help to relieve some of the stresses and strains of everyday life.

28 July Mercury moves into Leo Don’t be shy about drawing attention to yourself and the quality of your output and service. Perhaps it is time you were promoted or paid more! At the very least you deserve some recognition for your hard work. You are a naturally modest person who does not crave power or praise, but everybody likes to be appreciated.

11 August Mercury moves into Virgo This placement of your ruling planet in your sign should be good for working with detailed information, facts and figures. It could help you to sharpen your skills, methods and techniques in order to get the most efficient and effective results from them. But try not to be overly critical of your work, or to get stressed and nervous about making mistakes. And don’t allow yourself to get bogged down in minor details that sap your time and energy.

30 August Mercury moves into Libra You may find that you are less efficient than usual, and you could be criticising yourself for wasting time on procrastinating over trivial details or minor matters. But this is not the moment to force yourself into making definite decisions. At least not until you have weighed up the pros & cons of which choice to go with. Don’t be afraid to get a second opinion. Talking to someone else about your concerns will help, even if you don’t need the advice you receive.

05 November Mercury moves into Scorpio You could become embroiled in situations that are not completely above board and which undermine your trust in the people you work or live with. Superficial explanations will not satisfy you and you will want to find out what is going on under the surface. You are quite right not to take things at face value. Don’t be afraid to demand proof if you are in the slightest bit suspicious that you are being exploited, or taken advantage of.

24 November Mercury moves into Sagittarius This is the perfect time to broaden your mind and widen your horizons. Something new and exciting needs to happen – something that brings a breath of fresh air into your daily existence. Perhaps your life has become rather dull, dreary or humdrum and needs some spicing up. A dash of adventure should do the trick.

13 December Mercury moves into Capricorn Generally speaking, your sign is easily pleased. But an invitation to put your mind into planning mode will no doubt delight you. The idea of rolling up your sleeves and getting to grips with templates and timetables is like nectar to a worker bee. Don’t be afraid to create strategies for long-term success. Draw on experience you have gained over time, and look to respected role models for their specialised guidance and instruction.


30 January Mercury moves Retrograde in Aquarius Try not to get too fixated on any specific routine, regime or timetable as you may have to change your mind about it completely, due to the sudden arrival of new information, unforeseen developments or shifting circumstances.

21 February Mercury moves Direct in Aquarius Continue your contact with people who are teaching you to think outside the box. It’s possible that you have unusual or innovative skills which until now were rejected or ignored – probably because they were slightly unconventional or ahead of their time. These abilities could now be acknowledged and labelled as efficient, effective, useful and helpful.

29 May Mercury moves Retrograde in Gemini Don’t worry if you have to go back over stuff you assumed you were done with. It’s a chance to revisit issues you thought you had digested and dealt with in order to eliminate any niggling mistakes. Your techniques and methods may need to be appraised so that any faults, flaws and omissions can be corrected.

22 June Mercury moves Direct in Gemini If you’ve been experiencing glitches & hitches in your daily life these matters should now begin to sort themselves out. Try not to be irritated by the problems they have caused. Just re-boot your routine and move on. When you look back on this time, you will probably realise you were being held back for a good reason.

27 September Mercury moves Retrograde in Libra This is a point of re-balancing or equalising things that were initiated earlier but which by now have lost their lustre or run out of steam. However, it is not the right time to sign important agreements unless you are absolutely sure you are not putting your name to something you may regret in future. Choices and decisions should be checked and re-checked until you are completely clear and convinced that this is the best option for you.

18 October Mercury moves Direct in Libra If there have been any misunderstandings in your relations with people you see on a daily basis, or if you have been feeling out of sync with colleagues at work, there could be some welcome reconciliations. Just make sure it is not you who is left with all the cleaning up and clearing away.


22 July Venus moves into Virgo it is definitely time to acknowledge the skills that enable you to get your work done so effectively and efficiently. Enjoy the pleasure of using them yourself and allow others to show their appreciation for your help and support. You are modest by nature, but a sincere “thank you, I couldn’t have done it without you” means more to you than any gold cup, prize or medal.

29 July Mars moves into Virgo This planetary placement is helpful if you have work that requires accuracy and precision, but try not to get too caught up in getting everything Just Right! Mars will probably give a boost to your energy levels, but it might also make you a bit jittery and impatient. Charging through your to-do list just for the sake of ticking boxes on your timetable will only result in you ending up frazzled and exhausted.

22 August the Sun moves into Virgo Your time of year is best spent paying attention to your own fitness and wellbeing. You are naturally conscientious and you expect to work hard. You body is your instrument and the most important item in your tool box. It must be maintained in tip-top condition if it is to serve its purpose and function correctly. Your daily routine must run smoothly, effectively and efficiently and your diet should be wholesome and nutritious in order to ensure that you can stay healthy and keep going.


Uranus in Taurus and Pluto in Capricorn 

The ongoing influence of Pluto has been reinforcing you for a long time now and will continue to do so for several years to come. Your sign is strong in its own way, although you are not the toughest type in the zodiac. Pluto offers you empowerment and helps you to feel more capable when it comes to coping with challenge. Perhaps it makes you more resilient and enables you to keep going for longer. The only problem is that Pluto can give you the sense that you are invincible – which could lead you to push yourself for longer and harder than is good for your general health and wellbeing.

Uranus brings another type of stimulus into your life. One of your most positive qualities is the ability to adapt. Virgo is capable of working with whatever situation, environment and materials they are given. You are excellent organisers and it does not take you very long to bring order to chaos. As Uranus is the prime creator of sudden change, it is providing you with a variety of problems to fix and all kinds of messiness to clear up. Virgo likes to be kept busy, and Uranus is giving you plenty to do! However, you must be careful not to overstretch yourself in an attempt to keep up with this most unpredictable of planets and his ever-moving goalposts.


Neptune is in Pisces This is another long-term influence that has been bothering you from your opposite sign for a number of years. As a Virgo, you are not afraid of hard work. But you do not like the sort of vague, inconclusive situations which leave you doubtful and confused about what you are supposed to do. You hate wasting time and the idea of waiting around to see what may or may not happen really gets on your nerves. So does being fobbed off with elusive promises, lies and excuses. Your energy is drained and your anxiety grows, fed by shapeless doubts and nagging fears.

The nebulous influence of Neptune will be increased when Jupiter moves into Pisces May-July 2021. Things are likely to become more confusing and chaotic, although there could be a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel. The best way to cope with the craziness is by maintaining a sense of order in your own life. Keep yourself occupied and take each day as it comes. Do not allow yourself to be overwhelmed by hopelessness and helplessness. There is always something you can do, even if it is only to sort your laundry. Anything that distracts you in moments of angst. Rhymical breathing, chanting mantras, singing simple and repetitive melodies can all help. And always remember that laughter is the best medicine!

Jupiter & Saturn are in Aquarius this energy combination could make you feel that the world has become too big, too strange and too impersonal for your taste. As a Virgo, you are all for systems which can make life run more smoothly. But you feel that the methods should serve mankind – not the other way around. And while the ability to organise information comes naturally to you, you are concerned that data can be used to oppress or exploit people. This could be a good time for you to become involved in grass roots movements which campaign for the regulation of faceless corporations and conglomerates whose ultimate agenda is to turn us all into androids and robots.

Chiron & Eris in Aries This is another set of energies which is at odds with the key characteristic of your zodiac sign. Chiron in Aries puts a strong emphasis on the kinds of do-it-yourself therapies and healing techniques which stress the importance of independence and motivation. It is not that you disagree with this approach, but you may find it rather crude and simplistic. You are not a fan of the “As I want it, so it shall be” school of thought because your innate understanding of bodily systems and functions recognises the complex nature of health and wellbeing. You accept that someone can drive themselves into and out of pain and suffering, but you believe the prognosis for long-term healing requires the support of specialised practitioners and medical experts.

Generally speaking, Virgos prefer to avoid conflict. Quite sensibly, they see it as a waste of time and energy. What is the point of arguing and fighting when you should be trying to resolve the problem? One of your favourite sayings could be “the devil finds work for idle hands” and Eris, planet of war and strife, is a kind of she-devil when her energies are being used badly. Her current placement in Aries emphasises her more aggressive tendencies and underplays the importance of people getting on well together. But Eris can be invoked for a more useful purpose – which is to help make you more assertive. Virgos often struggle to say “NO”, which is why they end up feeling like victims or doormats. Eris can help you to put your foot down and stand up for yourself against people who are trying to take advantage of your willingness to help.


The North Node in Gemini and South Node in Sagittarius are not being particularly helpful to your zodiac sign, but they are making you question the direction in which your destiny needs to go. Many Virgos might be experiencing the sense that life has become too much and may be feeling the urge to simplify things. They could be drawn to the idea of downsizing as an incentive to clear clutter and rid their environment of stuff they don’t really need. 2021 is a good year for you to focus on making your existence easier by reducing your expectations of what you should be doing to more modest levels.

27 February Full Moon in Virgo This is the perfect time to consolidate on the effort you have put in until now. You deserve to reap the rewards of your hard work. Give yourself credit for what you have achieved, even if the results appear relatively modest. All that matters is that you are satisfied with them.

13 March New Moon in Pisces If you want to manifest something, you have to start with a vision. This New Moon can help you to create the design or blueprint from which to build. You are sowing the seeds for something that at present is just a dream. But over time it will become reality.

07 September New Moon in Virgo This is a very good time to set your intentions on optimising the general efficiency, health and wellbeing of your daily life. Sow the seeds for practices which will help you stick to rhythms, routines, regimes and recipes that can enhance your everyday existence.

20 September Full Moon in Pisces There could be a sense that your vision has become reality, even if not quite in the way you imagined it would. All the same, you have proved to yourself that you are capable of turning dreams into reality.
