Virgo - Sign of Mutable Earth

The Sign of Virgo in Astrology


Virgo is the second sign of the Earth element (mutable earth) and has Mercury as its ruler. If in Leo there is a need to discover and develop the individuality of the Being and their creative potential, in Virgo there is a need to make the best possible use of individual talents. This is why Virgo is known as a servile sign.

It is the last of the personal signs, the one that can discriminate, separate and select what is ready to be used or improved so that there are new and better experiences. It is the energy that reflects and analyzes the Being’s relationship with the world and makes them understand things in a more rational and pragmatic way, improving and making the most of things and of themselves. Instinct becomes the reason.

In Virgo, the direction is reflexive, critical, and reaches all the capacity for analysis and synthesis in the details. Virgo energy is responsible for the organization of matter, of what is real. It is order acting on chaos, the imposition of logic on reality. Working hard and with commitment means productive achievement, a way of getting your life straightened out. Virgo sign carries with it that dedication and humility at its core. And for that, it does not need to brag about it and be the center of attention like its previous sign, Leo. The security of its work done in a judicious and meticulous way is enough for it.

It helps us to rationally understand our relationship with the world. All that Being is and possesses can, and should be, better utilized with its help. It is the energy that seeks perfection, that always wants to achieve the best through practicality, persistence, and determination. This need for a job well done makes room for all kinds of criticism, generally constructive. Nothing seems to satisfy the Virgo energy, which seeks perfectionism and excellence. Huge energy coming from Mercury helps to analyze situations more concretely, noticing their differences, discriminating, giving them due importance, and finally finding their usefulness.

Reality is the Virgo focus, without beating around the bush or overwhelming emotions: what matters is, finally, the practical value, the best result that can be achieved, the maximum benefit we can extract from each thing. Even so, Virgo is selfless energy. Helping, serving, and caring brings pleasure. It wants to be helpful even if discreetly. It wants to teach individuals how to live as pragmatically and efficiently as possible.

It is a sign that rarely values hedonism and seems to have the need to analyze everything in detail, as if removing the colors to scrutinize it, taking some of the grace of creativity out of a wide and colorful context.

Virgo’s luminous side is methodical, altruistic, demanding, studious, organized, and punctual. On the other hand, its dark side is petty, skeptical, pedantic, and has fierce criticism - the individual who knows how to save can become stingy, the scholar can become a narrow-minded person and caution can turn into inhibition. Balancing Virgo energy means achieving a more open mind, accepting other opinions, and being more tolerant, always serving with common sense and without inconvenience.

I ask you, Virgo, to undertake an examination of everything that men have done to My Creation. You will have to observe with perspicacity the paths they walk, and you must remind them that their mistakes make me suffer. Through your critical eyes, My Creation will be seen and perfected. In order for you to do so, I grant you the Gift of Purity. And Virgo returned to its place.

People with sun in Virgo

What Astrology says about Virgo.

People with the Sun in Virgo are generally more methodical, analytical, systematic, servile and punctual, with tremendous (and nervous) mental energy linked to their essence. When operating in harmony, such energy pushes the natives to distinguish everything more precisely, usually with a great deal of common sense and humility, in addition to making them more practical, detailed, hardworking and helpful.

Mutable signs, like Virgo, are the most flexible and adaptable people of the entire zodiac. Virgos have a natural talent for understanding what needs to be done, being very detailed and good at jobs that require multitasking. They are instinctively more sensitive to the needs of others and tend to adapt well to different people and situations, always trying to find ways to feel useful.

Many Virgos help people without the need to get a reward for it; however, some can play the martyr and even cry when they feel their help or advice is being ignored. Occasionally, they tend to act with a certain inconvenient helpfulness. It is good to stick to this detail, because helping someone does not mean that you must force them to achieve a Virgo native’s concepts of perfection.

The need to make things better can be met by Virgos who pursue career paths in areas such as healthcare, veterinary work, education, human resources, environmental protection, social work, organization, cleaning or anything that needs a well-defined routine or improvement and maintenance work, in other words tasks that are able to convey a better notion of usefulness. The most complete expression of this sign is through humility and service, and its biggest flaw can be criticism. And now then, it is necessary to make an observation in this respect: self-criticism and getting on one’s own case can also be potent and an anxiety factor.

Everyday things and the routine of life also tend to be extremely relevant for Virgos. As their essence is mastery of details, they are usually overly concerned for their own good. They are often asking themselves: “What if this does not work out?”, “What if that exclamation gives the wrong impression?”, “Have we thought of everything?”. Therefore, they are better able to anticipate problems, preventing them from happening. They worry and suffer if they feel they have not done a good (or excellent) job.

Do you want to know how this information affects your life?

In relationships, they may have some difficulty in expressing themselves, as they may be more introspective, if in case other aspects of their astral chart do not have a direct influence in this sense. They can also be very self-reliant, but they are most happy when they have someone to add to their life. The negative side of the Virgo energy can make a person more indifferent, skeptical, demanding, sarcastic, overly critical, pessimistic and complaining all the time. They will also have to worry about paying too much attention to details.

People with the Sun in Virgo can also be very dynamic in some situations. For example, when the focus is not directly on them, but on a service they offer, they can be excellent salespeople and marketeers. They are happy when they can work on something where various details must be considered, such as services of a more technical, analytical nature or quality control. Serving can be more pleasurable than leading.

They usually keep their promises and have a natural talent for organization, following well-defined schedules and having more affinity for order and harmony. The natives of this sign can unconsciously seek perfection in everything they do, but as they strive so hard to do things right, they generally want others to do it too, and can criticize them whenever failures are noticed.

They are endowed with curiosity, which is (a characteristic of their ruling planet, Mercury), and they can be constantly asking about something. As they tend to worry more than they should, (they are always thinking about how they can improve something), so they may have to deal with anxiety sometimes. Many Virgos need a daily period of relaxation to calm their nerves, though it can be a little more difficult for a Virgo to relax, as they cannot stand boredom for long. They always want to be busy, whether doing something, learning about some matter, or just having fun. If you can have fun with things that have some practical use or help with personal improvement instead of just trivialities, that is precisely where they will be.

They usually look for new ways to take care of themselves, either through better nutrition or through natural ways of healing. An interesting curiosity: many people with a Virgo Sun or Rising Sign, (or with this strong sign in their birth chart), may look much younger than they really are and have a greater appreciation for pets.

How to become a better Virgo?

  • Rest your mind more;
  • Understand that nobody is perfect (not even Virgos!);
  • Express yourself better in relationships;
  • Be less pessimistic and complain less;
  • Make punctual and constructive criticisms.

What to expect from Virgo men?

Generally willful, the Virgo usually helps people who are in trouble, but they must think that the person deserves their effort. Life for the Virgo man is generally not a bed of roses, so it is difficult to be caught off guard by some disillusionment. He tends to be practical, intelligent and thinks that nothing falls from the sky. Money is the result of their work, so they tend to be workaholics. Virgo embraces work, as they tend to think that dreams are only possible if they commit themselves to practical reality.

They are good companions when they manage to control this critical impulse and the habit of scolding people. Virgo rarely lets emotion overwhelm logic.

What to expect from Virgo women?

The symbol of the sign of Virgo already says a lot about Virgo: a woman doing the harvest. This symbolizes the knowledge and wisdom received from the Earth. Because of this contact with the land, female Virgos are usually down to earth and very practical. Working is important, as are their assets and financial success. However, she is usually not greedy, just determined to fulfill her desires. You just must be careful that such determination does not become selfish, cynical or just desire without effort.

Although she needs passion like anyone else, in relationships she tends to want her partner to be equally dedicated and helpful. Therefore, anyone who relates to it can be constantly reminded of reality. On the other hand, there may be a tendency to constantly idealize the partner, always seeing a positive side, even if he has a pile of defects. In general, the Virgo woman is self-reliant in her relationships. This happens a lot because of their intellect, which allows them to analyze people and situations and deal with things in a practical way.
