Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Traditionally portrayed by the goddess of wheat and agriculture, Virgo is an earth sign, an association which speaks to the deep-rooted presence of Virgo in the material world. Virgos, in their approach to life, are rational, practical and formal. This sign of the earth is a perfectionist at heart and is not afraid to develop abilities by rigorous and continuous practice. In food and in everything else, Virgo governs the digestive system, which helps make these earth signs specially tailored to the ingredients that make up a whole. They are neurotic about every bit of information they can get their hands on.
Virgo is ruled by Mercury, the messenger planet of communication. Even though Mercury also rules Gemini, these two signs are drastically different: Gemini is about output and expression, while Virgo is about input and processing. A Virgo deals with information much like a computer, transforming even the most confusing set of information into organized, clear concepts. Although Virgos has long been meticulous in all pursuits, they must remember that the constant pursuit of the ideal can be destructive when applied to themselves or others. Beauty exists within our imperfections, and it is important for Virgos to learn that defects are not defects.
Virgos choose to help, above everything else. They are very kind, considerate, and supportive friends and lovers who solve problems using their incredible intellect and ingenuity. The opposite sign of Virgo, Pisces, offers guidance through spirituality, but on a practical level, Virgos want to help. Such earth signs are constantly striving to provide effective solutions and enhance broken systems. They create wonderful teachers, healers, editors, and musicians in a methodical, committed, and hard-working way.
