Characteristics of Virgo Sun Sign People
Neatest People You Know
Intelligent and Witty
Virgo is symbolized by The Virgin, a young or young at heart and curious person, and ruled by the planet Mercury, the winged messenger. This causes Virgo sun sign people to be talkative and great communicators, interested in many subjects. They are also restless and not likely to be still long enough to get into a rut.
It is a mutable, Earth sign, meaning that Virgo people are sensible and pragmatic, unlikely to rush into anything without rational consideration. Birthdays for Virgo people range from August 21st through September 21st, but this is not a hard and fast rule. A book called an Ephemeris must be consulted for accuracy about the Sun Sign. Many people will say, “Oh, I was born on the cusp, and have two Sun signs.” This is a common misconception; the Sun is only in one sign on any single day. There are cusps, but they divide the houses of a horoscope, and have nothing to do with anybody’s Sun Sign.
Virgo Sun Sign people have restless spirits and are very intelligent and witty. They are smart and know a little bit about everything, so are good conversationalists, and enjoyable to have around. Ruled by the sixth house, which has to do with health, they are extremely health conscious. Normally a they have a careful and healthy lifestyle, and it is not unusual for them to be vegetarians or to eat vegan diets. They use only the most natural products on their bodies, and are very disciplined as far as diets and exercise.
They are careful to avoid dyes and chemicals, so take care to eat the most natural foods and use cleaners that do not contain harsh ingredients. At times Virgo sun sign people are unfairly labeled as hypochondriacs, but they do worry an awful lot, especially about health, so you must be patient with them. They are very patient themselves, so this is not too much to ask.
Lovers of Nature
Read About Virgo Sunsigns
This book taught me a great deal of what I know about the traits of each Astrology sign. Since that is where any Astrology student must start, I highly recommend this book. You will refer to it for years.
Virgo Sun Sign People love the outdoors, and are protectors of the environment. They will spend hours tending their gardens, happily taking care of their vegetables and flowers and feeling calm and centered while engaged in yard work. It does not seem like work to them. Serious and thoughtful, Virgos always take the time to reason things through, and will stand up for themselves when necessary, but with intelligence, not arguments. Your Virgo sun sign friends or loved ones are peaceable and compassionate.
They will be very upset if they find themselves in surroundings that are messy or chaotic. They crave organization and order, and yes, all their CD’s are alphabetized neatly in a shelved cabinet and put away in a well thought out arrangement. Virgo sun sign people want their homes and work spaces clean, because they worry about germs spreading, and cannot concentrate when in a messy room.
These are hard working people, who do not mind putting extra work hours in during a crunch when there is too much to get done and a deadline looms. Virgo sun sign people are a welcome addition to your family or crowd, as they are always interested in learning new things and meeting new people. They just love to explore new destinations. And most Virgos have cats, but you already knew that, didn’t you?
Feel Mentally Attracted to Others First
A Virgo Sun Sign is first mentally attracted to another person, and will want to see how much they have in common with someone before they get involved in a relationship. Their sense of humor is very good, they do wicked imitations and are fun to be with when you go out. They are perfectionists and fussy, so will not tolerate a slacker! If they really love someone they will be willing to overlook a few little things, but be prepared to pick up after yourself and not leave a mess behind you. They can be quite critical, but they are just as hard on themselves, so try to cut them some slack.
Once that mental attraction gets clicking, they are Earth signs, so do like the physical part of love affairs, and are affectionate, loving and loyal partners. A Virgo mate will dote upon you and take care of you. They are very capable people, and will like to go their own way some of the time, so clinging vines they are not. They are lovable, diligent parents who really talk to their children and take the time to listen to what is on their minds, but the bar is set high and they have high expectations for the ones they love. You can always count on a Virgo in an emergency, as they are kind and will go out of their way to help you and your family. So please be sure you do the same for them.
Lucky Carnelian Stone for Virgos
Lucky Talismans and Amulets
In ancient mythology, Virgo is represented by a tall, majestic lady with golden hair crowned with corn. She holds wheat and poppies in her right hand, and in her left a caduceus, the sign of physicians or medical workers. Virgo Sun Sign People make good secretaries, receptionists, lawyers, chemists, or researchers, as they sometimes like to work alone. A gemstone that will be a talisman to protect a Virgo is the Carnelian, which is normally bright red, but can be found in varying tones, with yellows or white in them.
In olden days the stone was supposed to protect the wearer from witchcraft, but in modern times it is said to help the wearer maintain good health, important to a Virgo. This stone also aids in giving courage, and fluency in speech (not that Virgos need any more help with fluency of speech)!
Jade, which is usually found in shades of greens, is another gemstone associated with the sign of Virgo. It is worn as a protection from accidents, and as an aid against stomach and kidney ailments. The finest jade comes from China, some being translucent, and a more opaque variety is found in New Zealand. Jade is known to give the Virgo Sun Sign person longevity.
The key word for Virgo is “I analyze.” And they do. They mull every detail over in those busy minds that are always operational at full speed. Virgo sun sign people are skillful workers, paying great attention to detail and taking care to do everything neatly and efficiently. They work hard and are very reliable people, if they do not show up when they said they would, you know something is seriously wrong. If you are out of work yourself, your Virgo friend will help you brainstorm and decide where your talents lie and where you would be most likely to find work using them.
Virgo sun signs are also very talkative people, and since they cannot just turn off those busy minds, can sometimes drive you to distraction by talking about every, single, trivial thing that happens every day. You can gently steer them to another topic of conversation, or see these people less often or in smaller doses. They do not seem to be able to draw a line between what is worth the time and what is not, and tend to obsess for long periods about little matters like what kind of salad dressing to use, or whether they should cut up the bunch of grapes into little pieces. Virgo Sun Sign people worry about little details other people do not even think about.

Buyers Who Insist on Good Workmanship
Virgos like well made clothes and furniture, and always make a neat and nice appearance. They really admire good workmanship, and will buy the best made things because those are the ones that will last the longest. Virgo Sun Signs do their homework before going out on a shopping expedition, and will examine all the labels, asking the shopkeepers all kinds of questions. No amount of research is too much.
Although Virgos are companionable, they can also enjoy a life without a mate. They are not highly romantic compared to other signs, although they can enjoy being half of a partnership if it is a good match. Virgo sun sign people in a marriage are more like best friends, but that is the basis of a solid relationship anyway. The Virgo will take care of the social calendar, pay the bills, and plan the house decorations.
These are people who are ruled by their heads, not their hearts, although they are kind, devoted to those they love, and always responsible. You can always count on a Virgo when you need help in any way!
