About the Sun Sign Virgo (August 23 to September 22)
Virgo is the only zodiacal sign represented by a female. It is sometimes thought of as a potentially creative girl, delicately lovely; sometimes as a somewhat older woman, intelligent but rather pedantic and spinsterish. The latter impression is sometimes confirmed by the Virgo preciseness, refinement, fastidious love of cleanliness, hygiene and good order, conventionality and aristocratic attitude of reserve.
Virgo is usually observant, shrewd, critically inclined, judicious, patient, practical supporters of the status quo, and tend toward conservatism in all departments of life. On the surface they are emotionally cold, and sometimes this goes deeper, for their habit of suppressing their natural kindness may in the end cause it to atrophy, with the result that they shrink from committing themselves to friendship, make few relationships, and those they do make they are careful to keep superficial.
Virgo in Relationships
Virgo's easygoing nature and Earth sign quality makes for a reliable and steady sort who relishes the opportunity to be helpful to their partner. The Virgin's devotedness also signals that a great deal of energy will go into making the relationship work. Those born under this sign tend to strive for the perfect relationship. The best reward for the oft-repressed Virgo is a lover who is willing to bring them into full flower, releasing a passionate and sensual soul. A relationship with a strong yet sensitive partner is one which is almost guaranteed success. The independent and never clingy Virgin may seem ultra-cool on the outside, but inside smolders a red-hot ravisher waiting to release potent charms on a deserving partner. The ideal Virgo soul mate is well-dressed, empathetic and dying to show their Virgo a good time.
Virgo is dominated by Mercury, the planet which also governs Gemini and will continue to do so until a new planet is discovered to take its place for one of those Signs...the probability being that the new planet (likely to be given the name of Vulcan) will became ruler of Virgo, leaving Mercury with sole jurisdiction over The Twins.
In an astrological sense, the influence of Mercury is associated chiefly with the mind. It is the giver of wisdom and signifies the progression from the purely instinctive realm of the animal kingdom by the use of the intellect. Mercury represents ideas, methods and information...progressing through experimentation and invention. This planet is associated with children prior to puberty and thus, is connected to tricks, jokes, youthfulness and light-heartedness. Mercury rules all forms of communication (telephone calls, letters and speech, for example). It also rules the sciences, curiosity, manner of thought and travel.
Common misspellings for Virgo: Virgin, Virgi, Virgoe, Vurgo, Vergo, Viergo, Virgio, Virago, Virginian. The correct adjective for Virgo is Virgoan. Its symbol is The Virgin. The ruler of the Sign of Virgo is the planet Mercury.
