All About Virgo

August 23 - September 22

If you think the Virgo nature is to be prudish, think again. Virgins are known to discriminate with the best when it comes to personal desire, and there’s nothing wrong with knowing what you want and passionately focusing your energy until you get it.

The reason you’re so critical is because of your practical analytical skills, pinpointing and recognizing red alerts in people and situations quickly and with precision. While you don’t rely on creativity for answers, you’re sharp thinkers -- and for you, that’s certainly enough!

Your motto could be "Perfect is almost good enough." A perfectionist at heart, you can be overly-fussy and extremely picky. This can lead to extreme limitations on relationships and situations before they even take place, which, in turn, limits the potential in life. If you can learn to be selectively less critical, you’ll enjoy yourself much more.

The Virgo element is Earth

Earth signs are naturally practical. In this lifetime we are bound to Earth -- there is no escaping the reality around us The earth is about as real as it gets; it can be felt, weighed and it has substance. Accordingly, the Earth signs base their life on what is real, not what is imagined. Sensation is valued over thoughts or feelings. Earth signs live with their feet on the ground, so others seek their advice because of their basic sensibility. For Earth signs, seeing is believing.

The Earth of Virgo is a changeable Earth, light to the touch. It's about practical analysis -- using mental tools to discern the best use for what is around us.

Horoscope house: 6th

The 6th house is about the regular performance of work-related tasks. This isn't necessarily about career -- it's about the job you have that buys the bread for the table. This sector is also where we look to find out about health and healing, for it's not only work routine, but also our daily habits and hygiene.

Virgo's key planet: Mercury

Mercury, the Messenger of the Gods, moves around the Sun faster than any other planet. He symbolizes our thoughts -- not only how we think, but how we communicate. In fact, Mercury is in charge of all language. Mercury is our active and rational mind. It is not only "just the facts," but also what we do with them. As the key planet of Virgo, Mercury is about intellectual discrimination. It's the binary function of the neurons in our brain; they either fire on impulse or they don't. Mercury here is about the basic "yes" or "no" decision that must be made for every piece of information that enters our consciousness.

Your greatest strength

Your ability to focus your attention

Your possible weakness

Your need for perfection gets in the way of enjoyment
