Virgo in the Complete Horoscope
The Maiden Zodiac Sign in Classical Astrology
The Virgo Sign in the Horoscope Chart
Virgo, the Virgin (or Maiden), is the sixth sign of the zodiac. The sun enters it on or around August 23, when the summer is fading. Virgo belongs to the element earth, its quality is mutable and its charge is negative. Its Ruler is Mercury, and Venus exalts in it. Its motto is: "I scrutinize." In the horoscope chart, the zodiac sign Virgo brings a scrutinizing and diligent character to planets and astrological houses therein.
Please observe that the text on this webpage is about the role of the Virgo zodiac sign in the complete horoscope chart, and not just its meaning as a star sign, also called sun sign (when the sun was in Virgo at the time of your birth). The star sign meaning is treated briefly below, but if you want to know more about that you can go to my website devoted to it - see the link further down on this page.
Your Virgo Zodiac SignThose who have Virgo as their zodiac sign (star sign) are born when the sun was in Virgo, normally August 23 - September 22 (it differs slightly from year to year, because of the leap years). Therefore, it is also - more adequately - called the sun sign.
Observe that it's just one of the many components of the complete horoscope chart. Nowadays, star sign astrology is much more widespread and common than readings based on the classical birth chart, but the latter is what astrology is really all about.
The sun in your horoscope is your natural self - what you are when you relax, when other planets in your horoscope are not active. It is your basic drive.
If your sun sign is Virgo, you are a hard working person, paying great attention to detail, scrutinizing just about everything. You are quite critical, the last one to be convinced or swept away. You're not much for improvisation, but need mostly to go to the bottom of things, and to be prepared.
The Father of VirgoThe sun in the horoscope also represents your father (the mother is represented by the moon).
If you have the sun in Virgo, your relation to your father is a bit strained. Neither one is fully pleased with the other, but quick to criticise. You both often think that the other one is doing things wrong, even if you're not always sure to be able to do it better. In spite of that, you have your best times together when you do things, when you're working on something.
The Planets in VirgoThe planets and astrological points are the active forces in the horoscope chart, the energies by which we are able to act. As such, each has its own characteristics, but they are influenced by the zodiac sign they occupy. When a planet or other point of the horoscope is in Virgo, it is also affected by the zodiac sign, getting something of its character. Here are those planetes and astrological points, what they stand for in the complete horoscope chart, and how they are affected by the zodiac sign Virgo:
The Houses in VirgoThe astrological Houses are life environments, different sections of what constitutes our everyday reality. The Zodiac signs bring their characteristics to the Houses, influencing the environments described by them. Here are the twelve Houses, what they stand for, and how the Zodiac sign Virgo affects them:
Virgo in GeneralOf course, all of the above is very general, mainly to give you an idea of how the Virgo zodiac sign works in the horoscope and influences its different components. You need to study your complete horoscope chart carefully, to make a deeper and more nuanced interpretation.
Virgo in Zodiac Sign AstrologyIf Virgo is your zodiac sign, also called star sign or sun sign, it means that the sun was in that sign at your birth. For much more about what that means in astrology and the horoscope, please go to my website devoted to this zodiac sign:
