Virgo Sun Sign


Around 24 August – around 23 September

Symbol: The Virgin Quality: Mutable Element: Earth Ruler: Mercury

Virgo is associated with the harvest season. Indeed, the allegory or symbol for the sign represents the harvest goddess holding grain. It is during this season that summer gives way to mellow autumn. In a personal sense, this marks the transformation from a virginal or childlike state into a more mature, fully grown personality. With the transition from the individual now complete, this is also the phase when devotion to the collective needs of others is at its most heightened. For this reason, Virgo has long been seen as the sign of service, associated with carers and healers.

Virgo is ruled by Mercury, the planet of the mind, but because Virgo is an Earth sign, this results in a more analytical and precise kind of intellect than in Gemini. Planets in Virgo reflect these qualities; for instance, the Sun in Virgo focuses on creating a world that is perfect in every fine detail, while the Moon in Virgo will concentrate on caring for the feelings of others.

KEY WORDS: Systematic, discerning, critical, conscientious, helpful.
