Virgo: August 23—September 22
The phrase “you reap what you sow” sums up the Virgo way of thinking, as well as the sign’s history. In ancient times, agriculture was symbolized by the virgin, whose purity and singleness of purpose bore fruit for the individual as well as the common good. Virgo is marked by continual improvement, action, and practicality; people of this sign are famously conscientious in all aspects of their lives. Ruled by Mercury, planet of communication, Virgos can organize their own and others’ thoughts and ideas and express them intelligently and concisely. They are unswerving in their care for anyone who is truly in need; you can always depend on kind and responsible Virgo.
