Virgo 2020 Horoscope
(August 23 - September 22)

Matt Schnatz | Avant-Youth

After a time of great activity, and maybe even rash actions, it’s time to mellow out.

Virgo might not be an intuitive, emotional water sign, but it won’t hurt to take time to sit down and think. This is a sign of thought and planning. Whatever harebrained schemes you may have dreamed up during Leo might actually have a chance to come true. If you take the time to plot out a course. So take a seat, and start planning for this season and the next. 


Ten of Cups | King of Cups | Seven of Pentacles

Leo pointed you in the direction of happiness, but somewhere along the way, you made a wrong turn. As the captain of your own destiny, you’ve let well-intentioned family and friends lead you astray. Luckily, you have the power to correct your path.  

Don’t use this time as a reason to be nasty to other people – even the ones who put you in this position. You have the right to be upset, but taking it out on others won’t make the situation any better. As you navigate this difficult time, keep your head on straight and manage your temper. If not to keep your relationships intact, do it so you can concentrate on more important goals. 

This is a learning experience. You know exactly who has your back and who doesn’t. This might not feel like a time of success but with time, effort and the right people, you’ll put yourself back on the path to success.


The Lovers | The Sun | Ten of Pentacles

You may not have had the best time in Leo, but it looks like it’s smooth sailing from here on out. The issues putting roadblocks on your relationships and the imbalances creating unfair dynamics are gone. Or there are convenient people-shaped holes in your life where the source of your problems used to exist. 

Now that you’ve got balance, it’s time to enjoy your life. Whether the problem you removed was a person or a thing, you’re in a place to enjoy what life has to offer. It’s quite literally your time to shine. Now might be the time to start projects you never had time for, or maybe it’s time to get back on your feet when it comes to romance. 

The future looks bright, and it seems like you’ve built yourself a solid foundation for future success. Long term success and happiness are in your cards for your relationships, career and finances.


The World | Ace of Cups | Four of Cups

You know the feeling when you walk out the house and feel like you forgot something? You might be feeling something like that but just with life in general. The cosmic forces of the universe haven’t been that kind to you. Now it looks like success is hiding from you the same way your keys do when you’re rushing out the house.  

Even though it feels like life is literally getting in the way of everything, don’t let it get you down. It sucks to feel like you’re stuck in the mud or surrounded by uncooperative people. It’s easy to feel unmotivated when it feels like you’re at a standstill, but only you have the ability to move your life forward. 

Don’t give in to your feelings of apathy and give up on your projects. It’s on you to put your foot up the Universe’s ass to make it get its act together. Change is necessary, and it’s coming your way if you take the steps to make it happen.

Nine of Swords | Ten of Pentacles | Four of Wands

You might be more in your element, combining feeling and thought to get from point A to point B. It definitely helps that, in what might feel like trouble you have people who are ready and willing to help you out. With a few more heads in the game, you might realize the problem wasn’t as bad as you thought it was. 

That doesn’t mean you’re completely out of the woods though. It still looks like there’s a hiccup in your future. Whether it’s big or small, it’s on you to decide how it affects you. There’s going to be plenty of planning that might get disrupted. And if all else fails, remember you still have a safety net of friends and family to catch you if you fall. Trust in the stability of foundations you’ve built and maintained over the years to hold you up when things get rough. 


Eight of Pentacles | Knight of Wands | The Star

Last season you were kicking ass and taking names, and it looks like you’ll be doing more of the same. Through dedication and commitment, you’ve developed a skill set that has you on top of your game and set to reap great rewards. If it feels like you’re having the time of your life, it’s probably because you are!

Whatever project you may undertake under Virgo, do it with enthusiasm and excitement, but keep your head on straight. No amount of enthusiasm is going to help without direction or a realistic goal in mind. Rome wasn’t built in a day. No matter how excited you might be about something, charging in recklessly won’t do you any good. 

Even if this is a great time for you, you might be getting in your own way. Not even the best of us are immune to negative thoughts when life is great. It’s easy to say “Don’t feel bad,” but harder to go about it. If you’re feeling a lack of motivation when it comes to the things you love, it might help you to sit down and re-evaluate your current path.   


Eight of Cups | Wheel of Fortune | Eight of Swords

If Leo felt like a slow season, get ready for life to feel like it’s been paused. You may have been taking baby steps before, but indecision has stopped you in your tracks. Taking things slow and steady may have made you lose track of your goals, or even given you time to get distracted and focus on other things. 

If it feels like you’re not getting anything done, you’re probably right. If it feels like bad luck, it may be, my guy. One thing you can do is give up. But not really. This may very well just be a phase, and something good is just around the corner. You can’t force good luck into your life, but you can definitely make sure that the decisions you make put you in a position to succeed in the future. 

It’s okay to be frustrated when you feel stuck, but getting mad won’t help you in the long run; it just makes going forward a lot harder. Don’t back yourself into a corner because you’re frustrated, find ways to make this crappy season work for you.

Nine of Cups | Four of Pentacles | Judgement

Without a doubt, the last few seasons have been a struggle, and it may feel like you haven’t had a stroke of luck since Taurus. But between now and then, you’ve had plenty of time to self-reflect, improve and dedicate yourself to your goals. Virgo’s come bearing gifts while you’re flying high. 

Even though you’re doing great, take it slow. You might have just hit big and want to share the wealth. Maybe don’t do that. You can afford to be a little selfish when you’ve worked this hard. Especially when helping someone may do more harm to you. Be generous, but be realistic about what and how much you can afford to give to others. 

Self-reflection is the name of the game. Even though you’ve come out on top after a rough time, re-evaluation of what’s important to you never hurts. It may help you to focus on the path you’ve chosen or make the decision to move in a different direction. Either way, it’s time for you to make a decision on what you’re going to do next.


Queen of Pentacles | Six of Wands | Five of Pentacles

Yeah, so Leo sucked toes. Life feels good because you’re not worrying about whether or not your friends like you. The people who made you feel bad are gone and your supporters are helping you stand stronger than ever. 

You’ve got so many people supporting you, there’s nothing that could stand in your way. Your projects are flourishing, your relationships are successful, and life is good. Success has made your confidence come out of the shell that past seasons have forced you to build, but just because you’re having a good time doesn’t mean you can be careless. 

Trouble is still lingering around the edges of your life. It might be a financial struggle or a health scare, but if you can find ways to stay confident and productive, you’ll be able to weather the coming storm. 


Seven of Swords | Five of Swords | Eight of Pentacles

Whether or not you were paying attention to what the Universe was trying to show you, you’ve acquired some nice things or new skills – whether or not you got those honestly is another question. If you’re feeling like you’re walking into a warzone at home or at work, it might behoove you to consider if you may be the cause of the problem. 

Gossip and sabotage, accidental or intentional, ruins all types of relationships. Surprise, surprise. Even though you’ve just weathered a storm of lies and deceit more dramatic, logical and epic than season eight of “Game of Thrones,” you aren’t quite out of the woods yet. Although relationships are being patched up and the general atmosphere isn’t as tense, you’ll still have to work to make it last. 

Half-hearted efforts to make things work won’t cut it. Put your back into making things right, or you’ll have another war on your hands.

Ace of Swords | Queen of Pentacles | Temperance

You look like you still haven’t gotten your legs beneath you. It isn’t that your life is out of control – more that you  don’t know what direction to go and your indecision is starting to cause problems. 

What you need right now is a strong foundation, a shoulder to cry on or anything else that might help you feel grounded. Without that special something or someone to bounce ideas off of, you’ll feel like you’re spiraling out of control. 

Getting a grip is easier said than done sometimes. If you can’t find something to ground you or what makes your world make sense, you’re in for a bumpy ride. Make your chaos manageable before it makes you miserable.   


Page of Cups | Page of Swords | The Empress

Aquarius, emotions are great. Sharing feelings is nice. Letting your emotions get the best of you and throwing a tantrum is not. Your focus needs to be on shutting down your emotional rollercoaster before it goes off the rails. This period of stress will pass. All you need to do is find something to channel your energy into. 

Focus on one thing. It might be hard right now, with your focus shot and in different directions, but just because you can doesn’t mean you should. Spreading yourself thin won’t help you get anything done. Make up your mind, choose a direction, and shoot for the stars. 

You’re in the place to do it. As long as you can focus your creativity and will in one direction, you should be set. Don’t be afraid to ask for help from the people around. There are plenty of willing ears, you simply have to ask for help.
