Virgo season is here! Make way for the baddest!
Analytical, systematic, and hardworking are the prominent traits of an individual born under the sun sign Virgo. They thrive for a stable, (almost) perfect life through consistency, diligence, and discipline as an earth sign.
Virgos are governed by Mercury, the messenger planet of communication, who also rules Gemini. However, unlike the latter, which values output and expression, a Virgo loves input and processing the most. They “long to be meticulous in all their pursuits” (Allure, 2021), which may also cause destruction to themselves and others. While Virgos love spending time hustling, they too love spending time with friends, being supportive, kind, and gentle. And they want to help others through their intellect and resourcefulness, especially in problem-solving.
Indeed, their methodical approach to life and commitment makes them excellent teachers, healers, editors, and musicians.
Here are some quick facts about our loving Virgo friends:
- Birthdates: August 23 – September 22 (approximately)
- Element: Earth
- Color: Grey, Beige, Pale-Yellow
- Anatomy: Rules over the abdomen and digestive system
- Metal: Mercury
- Planet Ruler: Mercury
- Greatest Overall Compatibility: Pisces, Cancer
