Virgo (23 August – 22 September)
Body Part: Intestines
The 6th sign of the zodiac is symbolized by the sexless virgin. Virgo is another cerebral sign ruled by mercury. This sign is analytical and sedulous, fussy and fastidious. They are good at breaking things down into their constituent parts and nit picking the details. They are judgmental people yes. But they are just as critical of themselves as they are of others, which is why they are modest.
Virgos strive to organize the components of their daily life. While external disorders do not affect them, everything related to their personality and their environment must be tidy. They have a perfectionist but anxious nature, exceedingly meticulous: they enjoy discussing details, analyzing and criticizing. Virgo’s concern to keep their environment under control requires modesty and distance. However, it is impossible to mention this sign without shedding away a wrong, although generally accepted idea: no, Virgo is not doomed to the lowest steps’ eternal servitudes! She is not the society’s reject who works in the last office at the dead end of the corridor. Virgo is aware of her limits and she prefers to stick to what she masters rather than to venture into hazardous places. Her capacity to keep her small universe under control constitutes a major asset, an extraordinary drive for growth.
