Virgo is the sixth sign of the zodiac, symbolised by the Virgin. It is a feminine Earth sign, ruled by the planet Mercury. People whose birthdays fall between August 24 to September 22 are said to be born under the sign of Virgo. However if you were born on the day when the Sun moved signs you will need to know your time of birth to determine which Sun sign you really are. The Tarot card associated with Virgo is The Hermit.
The Sun in Virgo makes you conscientious and methodical, with a fine eye for detail. You love to be of service and to create order and hate not ‘being in the know’ – you need to learn self-worth and to trust your feelings. Talkative, lively and precise in conversation, you enjoy expressing yourself economically and clearly. Mostly practical, however you can be overwhelmed with fine detail and tend to over-analyse a situation.
You can be self-critical and become convinced you are not good enough for your partner. This arises from a natural modesty that is otherwise attractive. Alternatively, you can be too critical of others – a trait that should be curbed. You work hard to provide for your family, but should be careful not to neglect your partner or offspring. As a child you were naturally shy, and self-confidence was probably encouraged by your parents.
Virgoans make first-rate personal assistants and your critical sense can be a great help to colleagues less devoted to fine detail. They also make excellent teachers and doctors. Fresh air is essential for you to enjoy good health. Holistic remedies often suit you and if you find life becoming frenetic, relaxation techniques such as yoga would help to restore your equilibrium.
