DON’T: Procrastinate

Virgo season moves us into full-fledged mutable territory. In astrology, mutable signs signal the end of a season, calling on us to finalize our projects. Take your projects seriously, avoid making excuses, and commit to finishing what you're working on now.

DO: Think Before Speaking

Mercury’s influence is strong right now, so pay special attention to the way you communicate. Since this planet governs communication and technology, you’ll want to consider all angles of a conversation before responding to avoid any miscommunication.

DON’T: Be Impulsive

Virgo season is all about sustaining a healthy structure. That said, it's probably not the best time to act on a whim or engage in spontaneous ventures. Before making any rash decisions, weigh the pros and cons first.

DON’T: Slack Off At Work

Virgo is ruled by the sixth house of work and routine. This area is being amplified right now, so stay diligent at work. Mitigate distractions with a social media hiatus or turning your notifications off so that you can focus.

DO: Embrace Nature

While your work and structure may feel amplified during Virgo season, it's just as important to ground yourself through nature as a way to christen the mutable earth sign. Take a mindful walk outdoors, buy some flowers, or adopt a new plant.
