While life can be chaotic and wild and spur of the moment a lot, there are also many times when we need to create a routine to stick to so you can get the regular, mundane stuff done. It may be the stuff we don’t care much about or want to do, but it has to be done anyway.
Virgo is the sign that rules routines, and so you want to check where Virgo is in your chart to see where you best create a routine.
If you have any planets in Virgo, this can influence your ability to create routines, for better or for worse. The Sun shows you’re good at it in general, the Moon shows you can use a routine to keep yourself emotionally stable, Mercury shows you prefer shorter routines and changing things up regularly, Venus shows you you can enjoy routines but can also be lazy with them, Mars shows you have a lot of energy for routines and thrive with them, Jupiter shows routines can be beneficial for you but need freedom within them, Saturn shows you can feel a little restrained by routines, Uranus shows you want unusual routines, Neptune shows you want creative routines, and Pluto shows you can use routines to take control.
If you have multiple planets in Virgo, you may be super into routines! You may feel you're at your best when you're sticking to a schedule and have everything organized and ready to go.
We all have a Virgo house, so even if you don’t have a Virgo planet, you can look at your houses. The areas of life ruled by that house can show the areas of life where you most need a routine to keep everything in order. By house:
1st house: rules the self, so routines can come more naturally, and you likely use routines routinely (ha!)
2nd house: house of money, so routines may be needed when dealing with your finances
3rd house: house of the mind, so routines may be needed for dealing with any mental work
4th house: house of home/family, so routines may be needed for home and family matters
5th house: house of love, so you may use routines in your love relationships or with creative ventures and hobbies
6th house: this is the Virgo house, so you can take a natural approach to routines, especially in your work
7th house: house of relationships, so you may use routines in your relationships and dealings with others
8th house: this is an intense house, so routines for you can be focused on serious matters and help you transform
9th house: this is a light house, so routines for you may be focused on learning, travel, or expansion
10th house: house of goals, so you may use routines to pursue your goals and ambitions and stay on track
11th house: house of friends and dreams, so you may use routines when dealing with groups or pursuing your dreams in an orderly way
12th house: house of the hidden, so you may use routines on your own, in the background, when no one is watching
