My vector drawing of the Zodiac symbol of Virgo.
Virgo is seasonally associated with the end of summer and the onset of autumn when nature – having borne its fruit – recedes into conservation.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. 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.
