Virgo Sign Dates - August 23 - September 23

Virgo, the sixth sign of the zodiac wheel, and also the most attentive sign. These natives are hardworking and pay attention to details, which is why they are professionally very successful. Their methodical approach to life ensures nothing is left to luck or chance. But they don’t seem to have it all. They are overly critical of self and others, sometimes too sensitive to stern criticisms, and constantly in need to know their self-worth isn’t connected to their behavior.

Virgos are often misunderstood by the world, not because they lack expression, but because they won’t come to terms with their feelings when opposed to reason. What’s more, Virgos are amazing friends, always ready to lend a helping hand, and unafraid to ask for the same in return.

Virgo Symbolism & Myth

The constellation of Virgo has been considered extremely important in ancient astrology. It is a sign linked to fertility, harvest, growth, and nature’s eternal beauty.

According to Greek mythology, Virgo is linked to the Goddess of Innocence and Purity, Astraea. With the plagues of hate, envy, sickness, out into the world, the earth became unbearable to live. So the gods started ascending to heaven. Astraea was the last one to leave. She became the Virgo constellation.

Virgo is also associated with the Goddess of agriculture in the Greek and Roman Mythology.

element8

Element - Earth; Mode - Mutable; Season - Late Summer
This Earth sign fits perfectly between Taurus and Capricorn. These natives prefer living life in order and structure. Nothing disturbs them more than missing a detail impossible to fix.

Late Summer

Virgo season marks the final days of the summer season. It’s that time of the year when the sweet breeze mesmerizes the world by its pleasant vibe. It’s when flowers are blooming completely before their final fall next season.

It’s when the earth is able to fully express its nurturing qualities.

Mutable Mode

The mutable qualities of Virgo are depicted in their excitement to welcome the new season. They look forward to a cooler time of the year and overcome the pangs of summer anxiety and uneasiness. What’s more, their highly adaptive nature makes it easy for them to make friends and retain them in the long run.

Earth Element

Earth is the element of Virgo. It is all about structure and material possessions. This aptly defines Virgo’s affinity for being hardworking, determined, and practical.

Virgo is a practical sign that values material things over anything else. They are governed by logic and expect everyone around them to be practical enough.

Virgo Planetary Rulership

Planetary

Ruled by the planet of communication, Virgos have a developed sense of speech and writing. They can express themselves comfortably and aren’t too afraid of judgment. Although they deeply care about how the world thinks of them, this fact doesn’t change who they are and how they express themselves.

Professionally, Virgos make good writers, journalists, teachers, lawyers, and politicians. They are also driven towards social activism, for they want to help others in need.

Domicile of Mercury

Mercury is the ruling planet of Virgo. And therefore, these natives have a high sense of reasoning and perception. Virgos are analytical, communicative, and often extremely judgemental.

They display the warm and kind qualities of Mercury during all phases of life. They are highly intelligent, adaptive, considerate, and loyal. They rely on their instincts to make decisions in life, which creates both favorable and unfavorable situations for them.

Detriment of Jupiter

Jupiter is said to be in detriment in Virgo, which makes it difficult for the bold planet to express itself completely. This is why natives born with such sign placement are obsessed with perfection. This trait may limit them to unlock learning opportunities.

Jupiter in Virgo also makes it difficult for the natives to maintain their cool in challenging circumstances. They may experience pessimism taking over their optimistic side, and end up getting extremely hurt.

Fall of Venus

The planet of love and beauty, Venus is said to be in her fall in Virgo. Since Venus is unable to express its energy to flow freely, those born with Venus in Virgo are extremely shy and find it difficult to trust people. Always looking for something extra, these natives aren’t ready to settle down. But there is something unique about them. Rather than being critical of themselves, they embrace their strengths and work upon their weaknesses.

Virgo House Rulership

house rulership

The house ruler is the planet ruling the sign located at the cusp of the respective house in the horoscope.

The Sixth House

Virgo belongs to the sixth house of health and psychological issues. In this house of the birth chart, Virgo possesses the power to heal and materialize everything, as long as they focus in the right direction.

In this house, Virgos have to find what they are passionate about in professional life. If they choose something that they don’t love, they may experience misery and suffering.

The First House

The first house in the birth chart defines an individual, their strengths, and weaknesses. And it is this house, where Mercury is said to find its joy. Being the ruling planet of Virgo, the planet imposes intelligence and beauty to those born under this sign.

It’s a sign that reciprocates mental clarity and order. But sometimes, these natives face difficulty in looking at the bigger picture, have faith in life, and separate themselves from misery, which is why they end up feeling vulnerable and misunderstood.

Virgo Characteristics

Logical. Practical. Sophisticated. Virgos have a systematic approach in life. Perfectionists by heart, these individuals work their way towards success through their hard work and sheer determination. Though this persistent trait mostly plays in their favor, when constantly chasing something or someone can be a recipe for disaster.

Governed by the intellect, Virgos are kind, gentle, and philanthropic. On one hand, these natives are blessed with intelligence and strong will, but on the other hand, their harsh criticism of the self and others takes the form of a curse. Adapting to change is always difficult for a Virgo, which gives birth to their irritable and bossy nature. Virgos like to be the one in charge, majorly because they want everything to be done with mere precision.

Personality

The Perfectionists, Virgos, usually want everyone around them to be perfect too. If not perfect, they expect them to do things systematically. They hate when people let them down. Well, they can’t be blamed for it. They live life in an orderly fashion and want things to sail smoothly (if not perfect).

Ruled by Mercury, these natives are deeply inspired by beauty and nature. They have a good eye for “Art”, therefore, live in a picture perfect dream. Intelligent and inquisitive by nature, Virgos love acquiring new information — be it through reading, socializing, or debate.

Strengths

Gracious and harmonious, Virgos try to be their very best version. Always adept at learning and growing, they seek enormous pleasure in helping others and sharing the new information they have gathered. Always passionate about uncovering the “why”, their friends see them as a walking encyclopedia.

Virgos have a powerful sense of communication, which is why they get their way out of sticky situations in no time. And everyone is left dazzled by their charm and charisma. Hardworking and diligent, they leave no stone unturned in achieving their goals.

Weaknesses

Virgo’s weaknesses are rooted in their strongest suits. Their desire to have it all, and that too in a perfect way, can often give birth to unrealistic expectations, and frustration. Moreover, their mind can work functionally well, leading to undue stress and anxiety.

Their love for service is eternal, but when they don’t receive the help they need, they often end up feeling helpless. Virgo’s attentive nature can sometimes make them extremely critical and judgemental, giving rise to knots in their closest relationships.

Kind and gentle, these individuals often succumb to self-doubt and keep wondering if they will ever be good enough for someone. At times, this stress numbs their brain and makes it difficult for them to fall asleep at night.

Virgo Compatibility

Compatibility8

When in love, they can behave irrationally and start mimicking their partner’s personality/interests. They fall head over heels with their partner, but when that feeling isn’t reciprocated, they get extremely offended.

The most compatible signs with Virgo are Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio, and Capricorn. The least compatible signs with Virgo are Gemini and Sagittarius.

Virgo Health

Putting all their energy into living their best life, Virgos get very little time to take care of themselves. Their worst enemy is their stress and inadequate working of their digestive system. Therefore, they need to achieve a balance in their life.

They must take a nutritional diet and indulge themselves in mild exercises every day to care for their delicate gut and emotions. Moreover, they must stop worrying about what others are doing with their life, and rather focus on themselves, taking out an hour every day to indulge in self-care.

Esoteric Virgo

The Three Decans of Virgo

According to traditional astrology, each zodiac sign forms a 30-degree piece of the 360-degree band of constellations. The thirty degrees of each sign are further divided into three decans of ten degrees each. Each decan contains a slot of 10 days, and every decan is governed by different planets and different characteristics are attached to it.

First Decan of Virgo: Sun

Born from August 23 to September 02 (Degrees 150 through 159)
Sun is the ruler of the first decan of Virgo, which makes the people born in this range confident and proud. These natives are disciplined, trustworthy, and generous. Sometimes living life in their own bubble, they may seem egotistical and narcissistic.

Second Decan of Virgo: Venus

Born from September 03 to September 12 (Degrees 160 through 169)
Venus is the ruler of the second decan of Virgo, which makes the people born in this range highly enthusiastic and artistic. These natives are shy and take their time to form trustworthy bonds.

Third Decan of Virgo: Mercury

Born from September 13 to September 22 (Degrees 170 through 179)
Mercury is the ruler of the third decan of Virgo which makes the people born in this range extremely intellectual, ambitious, and witty. Mercury, the ruling planet, is able to express itself fully in the third decan, which is why the typical Virgo traits seemingly amplify in these natives.
