Virgo: The Meticulous Virgin (August 24 – September 23)
The Virgin is very detail oriented and therefore a worrier. They are critical and skeptical, as they draw boundaries and categorize others. At the same time they are most helpful as well as modest.
The Virgo is practical, industrious and efficient. They tend to be intelligent and spirited. Without a doubt, they are the most thorough, methodical, exacting, precise, and detail-oriented sign in the zodiac. With their talent for being observant, work and service oriented, they make each move with painstaking, pragmatic and discreet behavior.
They have a panache for being health and cleanliness conscious, mentally active and flexible (when necessary).

Mutable signs experience the sense of multiple selves, and sometimes struggle to feel real and solid in themselves. Their sense of identity is loose, and like a kaleidoscope, always changing. But over time, a core sense of self emerges, based on this changeability, but transcending it, too.
The houses of the horoscope represent different areas of life, described in terms of physical surroundings as well as personal life experiences. The placement of a planet or zodiac sign in a house will determine, to a large degree, the area of life in which it acts, and the goals and activities on which its drive or impulse will be focused.
Your Planet Mercury
To ancient astrologers, the planets represented the will of the Gods and their influence on human affairs. To modern astrologers, the planets represent basic drives and impulses within the human psyche. These drives express themselves as different qualities throughout the twelve signs of the zodiac and in different circles of life through the twelve houses.
Medical astrology, traditionally known as Iatromathematics, is an ancient medical system of healing connecting the body and disease with the twelve astrological signs. Each astrological sign, along with the sun, moon, and planets are associated with different parts of the human body that correlate to disorders of its associated muscles, nerve systems and organs.
The system of medical astrology has been used to codify the associations of the signs of the zodiac with the parts of the body as follows: Virgo – digestive system, intestines, spleen, nervous system.
The planets are also associated with certain portions and functions within the body: Mercury – brain, central nervous system, thyroid gland, five senses, hands, that you share with Gemini. Don’t forget, also that your element of Earth represents digestive system, feet, back and general vitality.
In medical astrology, Virgo – digestive system, intestines, spleen, nervous system.
Virgos are considered the sign of health in the zodiac and those born under this sign tend to be health conscious. Your interest in nutrition does seem to have a reason and that is because of your digestive tract.
Your hereditary weak part, this system suffers the most. Due to the fact that you are a chronic worrier, your digestive system seems to take the brunt of the problems. Energetically, this is where your stress tends to go, generating all types of problems such as acid reflux, poor digestion and elimination, ibs, colitis and all types of gastrointestinal issues.
The digestive system is one of our largest, from the mouth to the anus, so there are many areas where problems can arise. Virgos must find a routine and stay with it. Variations from this routine tend to cause you trouble. Find exercise you like to do and foods that agree with you. The more organic and natural your diet, the better off you will be. Curb your stress.
Your healing color is blue.
Virgo is yin in nature. Yin Energy is considered feminine. Yin is very contracting, passive, languid, inward, and heavier. Unlike yang, yin is slow moving and contracts inward.

The Lucky Virgo
Luck. What exactly is luck? Is luck being at the right place at the right time? Finding that lucky penny? Always landing on your feet? Finding a four leaf clover? Discovering bird droppings on your shoulder? What ever your idea of luck, research has found that people are divided.
Virgos are lucky people. You’re ruled by the planet Mercury and Wednesday is a good day for you as it facilitates communication. Five is your lucky number. Five – Vibrates to Mercury – ruler of Virgo and Gemini (Mercury is of the mind, intellect, short journeys, siblings). Freedom, versatility, expansion, the number of the perfected man with his feet on the earth and arms reaching for the stars. It is really up to you to see luck when it happens to you.
Analytical and a strong sense of realism can keep you from believing, but remember, you DO create your own luck, so all those seeds you plant along the way, really represent luck when they blossom. Learn to believe. Now get lucky!
Money and Virgo
Money is your reward for hard work. Some important values about money include giving, sharing, accepting compliments and recognizing new beginnings.
Virgos are prudent with their money. You are not a gambler with your money. You keep your purse strings tightly closed and are not one for spreading your money around. Like any earth sign, you are good at saving and can shrewdly manage your money. You are very content living on modest means and are cautious, sensible, careful and keep your money secure.
You think about saving money for your future, rather than over extending your credit cards or spending more than you can afford. Now get money!
Virgo and Career
Abundance is a long lasting, enduring enjoyment of life. It is being in love with living. Your career should be something you absolutely love doing. Since we spend the majority of our lives working, why would you ever just do something to get by. Life is much too short to not be doing something that brings you joy and happiness, reward and fulfillment, pride and satisfaction!
Virgos are born care givers. You make an exceptional employee. You are meticulous at your work. You have a willingness to learn and are a fast learner. You have an inert sense of responsibility and are excellent at finding and fine tuning every small detail. You have a sense of what needs to be done and you take the initiative to go and do it.
Careers that appeal to you include being a doctor or nurse, veterinarian, accountant, editor or technician. It is your attention to minutia that attracts you to jobs that organize, heal and teach. Also jobs such as inspectors, researchers and computer analysts make you happy. As with any earth sign, your sense of worry can drive you to perfection (or drive you mad). Remember, moderation is the key word for you, Virgo. Now find success!
Happiness and Virgo
Happiness is an expression of gratitude. Research has found that a great deal of unhappiness stems from negative thoughts. Happiness is not just a life lived by accumulating moments of pleasure. Happiness is a rhythm, an order, a balance. We choose to be happy.
Virgos can be happy people. You are drawn to perfection. You love a perfect rainbow, a well groomed lawn, crisp linen sheets and a task well accomplished. The unhappiness comes when you are not satisfied. That tends to be often as you are one if the most discerning signs in the Universe and you prefer order over chaos.
Unfortunately, it is very difficult for you to find a happy medium and once you have been disillusioned with ideas, in people or situations, your confidence in these matters or people are shattered and it is difficult for you to be won back. Sometimes, when you are out of balance, nothing is ever good enough and no one ever meets your expectations.
On top of this, you have no problem sharing your unhappiness with that sharp tongue of yours. You will be the first to point out to someone when a mistake is made. The less harsh and critical you are, the more happy you can be. Remember, nothing is perfect. Now find happiness!
Sex and Virgo
Our “sexual-esteem” or positive reverence for and confidence in our capability to experience our sexuality in a satisfying and enjoyable way are all a part of our sexual health and a very important part of our well being. Our most sexual organ is the brain! Our minds can create the most perfect fantasies or sexual relationship. It is the power of our minds that can enhance the desired sexual experiences and is what realizes our sexual pleasure.
Virgos are sexual beings. You are the sign of the virgin. This does not necessarily mean that you are untouchable, but it does mean you look for the perfect situation in relationships. On the other hand, because you are such a perfectionist, you may feel that you are not good enough and may tend to pull back fearing that it may be safer not to get involved at all, as you worry about being rejected. You have a buoyant spirit and can be very flirtatious.
Since you can be quite critical, you can also be hard to please. As a sexual partner, you are usually very considerate, as well as sensitive. You also prefer not to show your true feelings and can be rather reserved. Once you have been disillusioned by your partner, your confidence in them makes it difficult to move on with them. You can take these disappointments out sexually and through other excesses. Now get sex!
On the Edge: Born on the Cusp
If you were born within a few days of the Sun’s movement from one zodiac sign to the next, this means you were born “on the cusp,” and you’ll feel the influence from both zodiac signs. This combination creates a “personality type” that makes you unique!
Cusp of Virgo and Leo
August 19 to August 25
This is considered the cusp of Exposure! This blend of Virgo’s earthy, almost anti-social behavior with Leo’s dramatic fire, offers this new personality of extremes. Exposing you as either brash, loud and direct, or silent, secretive and shut down.
You can be cautious, with discriminating taste in regards to what you do and do not like and can be very steadfast about it. You are hard working and diligent. You find focus and dedication when it matters and are honest and success driven.
But, as your two elements collide, you may also show others your manipulative, stubborn and melodramatic side. You are, after all, the born leader with an obsession for organization and orderly behavior.
What you need most to balance your life is trust and openness, which incidentally, are the same traits that are found in both intimacy and the power of spirituality.
Cusp of Virgo and Libra
September 19 and September 25
Balanced by the planet of love, Venus and the planet of communication, Mercury, you have both rational and creative minds that give you the best of both worlds. You are considered the Cusp of Beauty. Your need to have everything in order, beautiful and aesthetically perfect, is your greatest gift and also your greatest nemesis.
When something is out of balance, not as pretty or far from organized, your anxiety and fear take over! You sense the stress creeping up your spine and realize your surroundings may not be in order, or you have immersed yourself too deeply in something that pulls your focus. You have a tendency to get “caught up” in your appearance and material things, spending too much money in the process. This is when you jump into crisis mode.
Because you possess a strong work ethic and an analytical mind, it is hard for you to fathom how things could get out of hand. You may have a tendency to beat yourself up or lose your self worth. You can then become even indecisive. Remember, you have sensitivities to both your internal and external worlds. Use this power to find your center again. This is where your need for the spiritual side must come in to play.
