You Might Be a Virgo If...

From selfless devotion to being the most honest of all signs, enjoy these light astrological musings about the sign of Virgo.
From selfless devotion to being the most honest of all signs, enjoy these light astrological musings about the sign of Virgo.

You Are a Master of Organization

Even from a young age, you have shown a deep interest and appreciation for things to be in an orderly fashion. You are the type of person that can spend hours arranging and rearranging objects or ideas until they meet the full potential you envision for them—and even then you may question whether or not it could be better.

You don't mind what the subject is, if it needs organization, you are the person in the room to make it happen. When everyone else feels lost and unable to find a starting point, you've already analyzed every detail, mapped each step, and are ready to get started. You find purpose and joy in seeing a project to its successful end. Because of this deep love for the process of things, you are more than happy to adopt any role that you need to take, to accomplish any task at hand.

Self-gratification or self-aggrandization is of no importance to you. However, you do secretly expect to be at least thanked for your hard work and efforts. You don't care for a big show of things, a simple "thank you" is enough.

Sun Virgo are born between August 22 and September 22—cusp dates may shift by a few days given the birth year.

You Are Selflessly Devoted Until the End

Two things are of great importance to you, being available for service to anyone or anything at any given moment, and to do things as perfectly as possible. There is simply nothing worse than being useless, and there is no sense in taking on a project if you don't plan on giving it your all and making it the best it can be. Because of this attitude, you are one of, if not the most devoted of all the zodiac.

As long as others show you that they are serious and trustworthy, you will devote yourself selflessly to them and their needs until the bitter end. As stated above, you must feel useful, but you are nobody's fool. You are not one to be taken advantage of. You have keen insight into the truth of others and can see when someone is using you. When you find yourself in such situations (which is not often), you have no trouble verbally expressing your disgust and disapproval of such actions and intentions, and then on your merry way you will go.

You Have a Deep Affinity With the Written Word

From a young age, you have very likely shown a mature appreciation for reading and writing. One of your favorite things to do may have involved playing with notebooks and collecting various writing utensils. If you have a strong mercurial influence in your natal chart (other than being a Sun in Virgo), you might even have dabbled with writing your own little books as a kid.

It's no coincidence that many successful writers and songwriters have strong Virgo in their natal charts. You have a natural gift for the written language and should most certainly dedicate time to enjoying this side of you; whether it be writing a journal, book, or song, or even reading. While the sign of Gemini is also ruled by Mercury (the planet of communication), Geminis can find themselves a little scattered and frustrated with trying to pin down all of the ideas that flash across the vision board of their minds. You too have a lightening flash inner vision, you, however, have the ability and innate "know-how" to focus and dedicate yourself until what you see becomes a reality. Because of this inner will, this is why there are so many Virgo Novelists in the world (past and present). It takes patience, discipline, and dedication to finish such a piece, as a novel.

This appreciation and need for things to be based in reality extend to every aspect of your life—particularly when it comes to people. hubpages.com/@simplehappylife

Your Thinking Is Based in Grounded Practical Reality

You're not usually interested in fluffy "what ifs," unless you have stronger alternative Astrological influences in your chart. Even with this article, for many of you, all of this Astrology talk is mostly a bunch of wishy-washy nonsense. Virgo is an Earth sign, which is very much grounded in "reality." So the earlier statement can be said for the other two Earth signs as well (Taurus and Capricorn).

This appreciation and need for things to be based in reality extend to every aspect of your life—particularly when it comes to people. You have no interest nor the patience for people who are not "real." Like the Scorpio, you are incredibly gifted when it comes to smelling a lie and a ruse. You waste no time with people when you sense that they are inauthentic.

Though, on the flip side of this, you will dedicate as much time as needed, to be of help and service to those that show you their authenticity and appreciation. It doesn't take much to get close to you, they just have to be "real."

Your appreciation and need for authenticity in your life doesn't come from "nowhere." You feel this way because you are this way.

You Are the Most Honest of All the Signs

Your appreciation and need for authenticity in your life doesn't come from "nowhere." You feel this way because you are this way. You set high standards for those around you, but what most people don't realize is that your standards for yourself are even more rigid and higher. You only expect from others what you expect from yourself, and being honest is at the top of your mental list (yes, you literally keep mental lists).

With this attitude, it makes you extremely honest, and since Virgo is ruled by Mercury (communication), it makes you extremely verbally honest. Many times your honest thoughts just roll right out of you before you've had a chance to consider them. This can at times make others see you as being insensitive or brutally honest. While this might bother you about yourself at times (because you're genuinely not wanting to hurt others feelings), you also feel that "sugar-coating" your opinions serves no one. Therefore, in the end, you usually find that it is just best to be brutally honest than to paint the truth in a sugar-coated lie.

Because of this, you will have many people throughout your life seek you out for your honest view, opinion, and advice. They know that no matter what, you will always tell them the truth.

      Very interesting hub, SA Williams. I had interest in astrology several years ago. I thinks it's fascinating how star constellations influence our behavior. My sign is the ram: Aires. But I felt the advice given to the Virgo people was something I could apply to my own life. It's very positive suggestions. You included nice graphics and photos. I recognize most of the popular celebrities categorized as Virgo and it's an elite group of people indeed.

      Thanks for reading and the great comment Gilbert :)

      The Sun sign is just the tip of the iceberg, for an individual. You would have to see your entire birth chart (the snapshot of where planets were positioned in relationship to your birth location here on Earth, at the time and date of your birth). This would give a detailed view of "You". If you related greatly to Virgo, it is possible that you may have strong Virgo influences in the rest of your chart. Each planet (and our moon and sun) all are intricate pieces of the whole.
