Virgo (♍) is the sixth astrological sign in the Zodiac, which spans the zodiac between the 150th and 179th degree of celestial longitude.
Virgo is seasonally associated with the end of summer and the onset of autumn when nature – having borne its fruit – recedes into
Because its period indicates a change of season, it is known as a ‘mutable sign’, which indicates an instinct towards changeability and an easy ability to let go of past situations in preparation for future needs. The sign is governed by Mercury, the planet of dexterity, communication, interchange of ideas and study. Mercury is also exalted in this sign, which as an ‘earth-sign’ is marked by practicality and perseverance. This gives an ideal balance between ingenuity of mind, and sharp intellect, and the strength of will needed to see creative ideas through to completion.
In the other elements a strong Mercury can indicate fickleness or unhealthy restlessness, but Virgo’s earthy qualities steady this trait and gives an excellent eye for detail. Virgos are reputed to be adept at languages, to possess a love of literature, a deep interest in history and statistics, and a good memory for details.
Virgo is considered a negative polarity or passive (introvert) sign. This gives the characteristics of being reflective and receptive to the ideas of others. This passivity, accompanied by a flair for discrimination and eloquence with words has given Virgos a reputation for civility and good manners. They are said to have a talent for projects which require precision and detail, and to excel at skills and crafts which require patience and exactitude.
On the negative, they are highly sensitive to perceived criticism, and can appear to worry unduly about the need to make things as perfect as they can be.
One of the Virgo lessons in life is to learn that to err is human, to forgive divine, especially when it comes to love.
Lets see if that description fits the virgos in your life…
