Virgo - astrology 101


Happy Virgo season. It either starts August 22 or 23. I usually say it starts August 23 and lasts until September 22. ⁠⁠Virgo is ruled by Mercury. Virgo is an earth sign. It is mutable and the polarity is considered negative/feminine/yin.

.⁠Virgo can be described as quiet, narrow-minded, realistic, modest, critical and practical. The strength of a Virgo is their reliability and their attention to detail. Weaknesses include being too analytical and perfectionism. Excellent careers for Virgos include nutritionist, scientist, librarian, and personal assistant. ⁠⁠

The great astrologer, Robert Hand, says "While Virgo does not insist on being boss, it needs to feel effective. Yet the world is not an entirely reliable place: things go wrong even with the best of plans. That bothers Virgo more than most signs. The concern for order may also cause Virgo to become extremely neat in personal habits, but if Virgo cannot achieve perfect order, it may give up completely".⁠⁠
