Beyonce's Song 'Virgo's Groove,' Analyzed By An Astrologer

Queen Bey has kicked off her 'Renaissance' during Leo season, and with an excellent astrologically inclined track

Even though many people on the internet, particularly the Leos, believe it’s shady that Beyoncé has released her song “Virgo’s Groove” during Leo season, it’s really a typical Virgo move. The sign is known for being expedient and organized in their work, which is perhaps why the Queen of all Virgos has dropped her album Act I: Renaissance and latest astrological track before her solar return.

To all the lions out there who are worried about “Virgo’s Groove” stealing their thunder: Chill. Stop being selfish and dramatic! Don’t let your bravado and ego get ahead of you. Learning to share the spotlight once in a while will do you good, especially when it’s with Queen Bey. After all, Virgos need some love, too. Plus, a Virgo, with their low tolerance for drama and direct nature, would never be that messy. And the majority of people in the United States are Virgos, so we better let the patient sign have its moment. Its gracious nature would have it do the same for the other zodiac signs.

This isn’t the first time Beyoncé has sung about being her zodiac sign. “Gift From Virgo” and “Signs,” both featuring tell-all lyrics about the mutability of the earth sign and recognizing similar characteristics in the men she wants, appeared on her 2003 album Dangerously in Love, which earned the singer a Grammy the following year. “Gift From Virgo” discusses the reflective nature and tender conversations shared with her lovers. “Signs” is about how her boo inhabits the worst qualities of the zodiac and all the signs she’s dated, yet she still yearns for a Virgo paramore, someone who’s like her. However, a “sexy Scorpio” will do, too.

Yet “Virgo’s Groove” is slightly different from Beyoncé’s various other astrological songs, which have previously been sensual and sultry. Unlike “Signs” and “Gift From Virgo,” she’s talking about her top turn-on: touch. This is a sensation that Capricorns and Tauruses also crave because it connects them with their bodies. Her lyrics are direct about having her carnal desires met with lines like, “I want it right here, right now / Cuddled up on the couch / Motor boat, baby, spin around / Slow-mo comin' out my blouse.” Beyoncé sings unapologetically about wanting to hook up; there is no shame in her game: “So use me (Use me) / Pursue me (Pursue me)/ Kiss me when you bruise me (Bruise me) / Taste me (Taste me), that fleshy part / I scream so loud, I curse the stars.”

This song explores the sexual side of the earth sign, which doesn’t always get the respect it deserves for graciously bringing tantalizing energy to everything it does. Is it fair to say that “Virgo’s Groove” could be the next great booty call song? Yes, and it’s not only for the sign, which is ruled by the planet Mercury. No matter what zodiac you fall under, chances are you’ll enjoy bumping and grinding on the dance floor — or in the bedroom — to Bey’s instantly classic new bop. Compared to the disco vibes of “Summer Renaissance,” “Virgo’s Groove” has a cheerful beat that makes loving seem especially fun.

In fact, Virgos are known to be extremely kinky. Many astrologers consider them to be one of the wildest signs out there, due to the fact that they work hard and believe in playing harder. Their hedonistic desires and curious minds often lead them to exciting trysts.

Looking at her birth chart, Beyoncé — who was born on September 4, 1981, at 10 a.m. in  Houston, Texas — has a Scorpio moon and a Libra rising. These aspects lend additional depth to the way she conveys herself through her words and music. With Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto on her Libra ascendant, which refers to the energy we project into the world, it’s no wonder that she’s so expressive about her thirsts. Venus rules Libra, which brings raw sexual energy to her birth chart, while the Libra stellium, a cluster of three or more planets in the same zodiac sign, shows a longing for love, sex, and passion.

So rather than hiding her carnal impulses and appetites, Beyoncé’s opening up and allowing them to be seen. So while this song is perfect for a good one-night stand, “Virgo’s Groove” is much more powerful than one might imagine at first listen. It’s about Beyoncé stepping into her power, authenticity, and passions while encouraging her fans to do the same. This theme of empowerment runs across the first act of Renaissance in the lyrics of “I’m That Girl” and even the album’s lead single, “Break My Soul.” Her Scorpio moon — which rules comfort, family, and emotions — aligns with the karmic South Node of Destiny, which refers to what makes us feel whole, which means that she seems to be feeling confident in putting her Virgo-ness and passions out in the open for the world to see.

Love may be a game for Virgos, as their effervescent nature often sees them playing with others’ emotions by going back and forth rather than committing. However, canoodling and hooking up are necessities for those guided by the earth sign, who like to be touched whenever they request it from their partner. Hopefully, this song will bring every Virgo the power pop and desire they lust after every day of the year.
