The Virgo Stellium

According to the Astrostyle, stelliums in a birth chart indicate that the qualities of the sign that’s packed in your chart will be dominant in your life. A stellium is easy to spot and is almost like your chart is saying “Look at me! This is a critical area of your life!”.

  • 3 or more planets in Virgo

  • Virgo desires can’t be ignored

Virgo is a logical and practical earth sign. This sign of the Zodiac is humble and hard-working, and with a stellium in Virgo, you may be extremely efficient, productive, and drawn to solving practical problems with concrete results.

This sign is of the mutable mode, meaning it is adaptable and flexible. With a stellium in mutable Virgo, you may be great at conforming and changing to reflect different circumstances or environments like a chameleon.

The planet Mercury rules Virgo, and it gives the sign a reliance on logic and communication. With Mercury’s influence on your Virgo stellium, you may be curious to learn and come equipped with a capable mind to hold all of that information.

How to Read Your Virgo Stellium

There are many different ways stelliums can take shape in your life based on the rest of your birth chart – no one’s Virgo stellium is the same.

But, to get started, here are some tips to help you read your stellium in Virgo:

  1. The first step is to check which planets are included in your Virgo stellium.

    This clues you in as to which parts of your mind or soul will be affected by this practical, earthy sign. It will also let you know which of your inner drives and urges (your psyche) will be blended and cooperating.
     
  2. Next, take note of which house or houses your stellium planets are in.

    Just like a microscope enlarges what it’s focused on, the houses(s) reveal the areas of life that the Virgo planets will work through. Where in your life will the energy of the maiden be most apparent?
  3. If you’d like to take things one step further, check the aspects made between your Virgo stellium planets and planets elsewhere in your chart.

    Aspects add yet another layer to your stellium reading. These special angles between planets can lead to harmonious or tense relationships, depending on the aspect made to your Virgo planets.

Transiting Virgo Stellium

There’s another place you can find a stellium in Virgo, but it doesn’t include your natal planets. This is a Virgo stellium made with the current, moving planets.

Moving planets, also called transiting planets can create a stellium right on Virgo in your chart and have the potential to bring change and transition to your life.

If you stumble across a transiting stellium in Virgo in your chart, it could affect your life in the same ways as a natal stellium, but with one notable difference – this is a temporary stellium. Its influence will only last as long as the planets transit through your chart.

Short or long-term, a transiting stellium sitting on Virgo in your chart has the potential to excite significant change in your life. But, for better or for worse, its influence declines as the planets move on to other areas of your chart.
