Happy Birthday to our Virgo Friends

Happy Birthday to our Virgo Friends

Posted by Heather McConnell on 23rd Aug 2021

If you were born between August 23rd and September 22nd, your sun sign is Virgo. This constellation represents Astraea, the Goddess of Innocence and Purity. In Greek Mythology, Astraea was the last deity to abandon Earth after Pandora opened her infamous box, and her return will usher in a Golden Age. Due to Astraea’s planetary connection, it is no surprise that Virgos are Earth signs. This grounding energy makes Virgos stable and organized, although it can lead to perfectionism and extreme conservatism. Virgo’s ruling planet, Mercury, lends a charitable nature and a talent for artistic and written expression. 

Mercury’s influence is particular helpful for Virgos, because it helps them find an outlet for communication despite their natural shyness. Although it may take a while for them to open up, Virgos are warm, gentle, and loyal in their interpersonal relationships. Virgos carry this dedication to their work, where it combines with their practicality further their careers. While their strong analytical skills are an asset, Virgos can turn them on themselves in their darkest moments. Virgos are truly their own worst enemies, and they often engage in negative self-criticism. Sometimes, Virgos even turn this critical and often unconstructive eye on others. However, Virgos are very cautious and usually don’t let themselves spin out of control. Virgos approach the world with a sense of wonder; their analytical minds are always thrilled by new experiences.

Virgo teaches lessons of kindness and hard work that resonate with everyone. While most people focus on their sun signs, this constellation is important throughout your birth chart. Virgo might lend altruism to your goals through Neptune, or it could work with the Moon to encourage artistic expression. Working with crystals can help you bring out your inner Astraea and create your own Golden Age!
