In this article, we’ll be taking a look at one sign in particular: Virgo! If you were born between August 23 and September 22, this is your sun sign, which means that it determines your identity and the core of who you are. I’ll be breaking down what element Virgo represents, what it means to be a Virgo, and how being a Virgo may shape your life.
First and foremost, Virgo is an Earth sign. Think of it as “down to Earth”; an Earth sign is often someone who is grounded in reality, who sets realistic goals, or who is honest with others. Being an Earth sign means you have the ability to be true, either to yourself or to others.
Virgos are represented by the maiden and are associated with virtue, fertility, and feminine royalty. The Virgo constellation was even associated with Demeter, the Greek goddess of harvest and mother of Persephone. If you’re a Virgo woman like myself, this means that you’ve got some divine femininity in you!
Virgo suns are known for being smart, responsible, and hardworking. They are also known to be self-sacrificing, often putting aside their needs for the sake of their work or for others in their life. Virgos have a drive to accomplish things, but also to be a good person.
Of course, every element and sign has their downsides. Earth signs need stability in their lives, much like how an ecosystem needs balance. An Earth sign is not likely to be a huge risk taker, as situations like that can stress them out. However, this can lead to an Earth sign being too serious.
Virgos are stereotyped as overly analytical and serious. Virgos are thorough in everything they do, but this meticulous nature can come off as cold. In reality, Virgos are dedicated to their craft and intentional with their actions, but they can be blind as to how much their caring nature can overtake their life.
To summarize, being a Virgo means that you have the ability to achieve great things, you are dedicated to the things and people you care about, and that you try to be both truthful and kind. However, you can run the risk of being too focused on your own self, which can cause trouble in your interpersonal relationships. Additionally, though you are knowledgeable, others may perceive you as a know-it-all if you don’t know how to properly communicate with others.
At the end of the day, being a Virgo is about balance. Remember to nurture your intelligence and dedication, but try to maintain a sense of balance and learn when you reach a point of being overzealous. Your caring nature makes you a true friend, but knowing how to communicate is key to bringing out the best in you. Last but not least, remember that your brain and your heart are your strengths. You are both smart and loving, and that is a wonderful and beautiful way to be.
