When a planet spends time in the sign it rules, it is said to be in its domicile, one of the five “dignities” that determine the level of influence it has. With Mercury in Virgo, the two in tandem tend to the most practical matters of life, including wellness, work, and organization. This energy is meticulous to a fault — the fault being a capacity for criticism. Virgo has high standards and their Mercury rulership will let them be known without hesitation. That said, accepting feedback is a critical component to self-improvement. Tapping into Virgo season energy demands introspection along with dedication. Being the sign of the harvest, Virgo might, with a cocked eyebrow and a smirk, sum it up this way: You reap what you sow.
