Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
Virgo is the 6th Sign of the Zodiac and the second of the Earth signs situated after Taurus and before Capricorn. Virgo is a sign of Mutable Quality and is traditionally ruled by Mercury along with Gemini. In modern Western Astrology, Virgo is also co-ruled by the maverick planetoid Chiron and two of the four largest of the asteroids, Ceres and Vesta. Vesta is dedicated to her cause, Ceres is a nurturer and Chiron symbolizes wounds that need to be healed by way of a holistic approach. This multiple rulership attests to the complexity of Virgo. The Zodiac glyph is the Virgin which is symbolic of purity, prudence, health, hygiene, humility and independence. Other common Virgo characteristics include analytical, critical, detailed, improvement oriented, intelligent, practical and refined. Virgo is the sign that denotes interest and concern with holism or how all parts function together to create a whole working system, ecology, healthy living habits, right vocation, genuine service and humility. Overly critical, picky, perfectionist, sarcastic, prone to worry, uptight, reserved, and insecure are common issues to overcome. Positively, Virgo is intelligent, humble, genuinely service-oriented, witty, resourceful, knowledgeable, scientific, punctual, precise, and extra healthy and health aware. Virgo is about using practical intelligence to heal, fix, improve and serve. Common occupations include scientists, researchers, scholars, teachers, writers, technicians, carpenters, servicemen, waiters, maids, secretaries and healers.

Recent Horoscopes for this Sun Sign:
A creative impulse is rising, fast. Already you can feel the current accelerating. This momentum will continue all week. Despite the pull of Venus, your determination is growing stronger as well. This is one of those times when you shift into low and crawl… up the mountain.
Relationship involvements of late have either been idyllic, dreamlike and sweet or vague and vacant or perhaps swinging from one side to the other. Fortunately, a creative impulse is kicking in. It will require that you give more or try harder than you have perhaps for some time.
A steady process of awakening is underway. Some of it may be rude and some pleasantly revealing. It is for you to decipher the difference. At best, you are awakening to your incredible resourcefulness and your desire to break through to a whole new level. You can and you will as long as you get clear and persevere.
