Ruling Planet: Mercury
Symbol: The Virgin
( Virgo 24th August – 23rd September)
The Virgin of Virgo is the only female figure in the Zodiac, the other single human figure being the male Water Bearer of Aquarius. Virgo is traditionally linked with health, hygiene, and all forms of service and healing. Virgo are often most concerned with diet, and suffer from nervous indigestion when upset or worried. Virgos are extremely detail orientated, highly discriminating and overly critical. They will be the first person to tell you what is wrong with you, yet they also are extremely opinionated and overly critical of themselves.
Virgo’s are perfectionists , which is great for their careers, work ethic and which often leads them to success, however being this way in other parts of their life may in fact be a downfall. Being overly critical can mean them missing opportunities, relationships and failing to enjoy the moment for what it is. It would be extremely helpful, if Virgos tried to live more in the moment and look more at the positives, rather than what it is that they can change. Being a perfectionist at heart, more often than not, they look at trying to change a situation, person or themselves and nothing seems to ever be ” perfect” enough.
Being an Earth sign, Virgos can be extremely grounded and are often sensible characters when it comes to work, love and relationships in general. They are intelligent, extremely observant, right down to the finer details and yet are very humble. They prefer taking care of others, rather having other people taking care of them. Virgos are often moving, doing things and trying to create order in their lives. This often takes a toll on their emotional states as they are often restless and trying to solve issues and situations.
They do not receive critism well, however will easy tell others exactly what it is that they think of them . They are insightful, intuitive and others often consult with them for advice. Virgo’s prefer small one on one encounters or small gatherings , over big group events. In love they may not be the most romantic, however once they let their guard down, they most certainly give over their whole heart.
