Victorious Virgo’s Rule – you do too, if you were born today!

If you were born August 24 — September 23,  you are a Virgo!

VirgoZeus fell in love with and pursued the titaness, ­Themis. They had a daughter, Virgo, so wise and so able that she was made goddess of justice and reigned over the earth during its golden age of female rule. Virgo was renowned for her wisdom, compassion, and her modest demeanor. She got the job done without a flurry of fuss and bother, which quickly came to anger the men of the earth. They rose in concert against her and spoiled her quiet leadership. Furious at the affront, Virgo abandoned the earth and was installed in the heavens, where her great goodness could shine, fully appreciated.

Virgo is nothing if not careful in every task they do. Is it a compulsion? That depends. The essence of the Virgo nature is honesty, purity and the need for service. They pride themselves on their usefulness and display it in an honest and meticulous way. Unfortunately some of the rest of the zodiac ­mistake these qualities for rigidity, inflexibility and even ­elitism. They separate are from us, too detached and superior in their goodness, making it easy to debase them.

Maybe. Virgo is just too good.  All work and no play, their compulsion for detail can drive some crazy. As children, of course, they are everybody’s favorite — primly tidy, reasonable and ready to follow the rules. As adults, some of the luster fades, and they plainly just don’t seem to be quite as much fun.

As for emotional relationships, Virgos can be lost in their own cool reserve. They are said to be notably lacking in ardor and passion, although that may be a result of their inability to express their deepest needs. Underneath their surface each Virgo has much love to share and receive. How to address their needs and to place them on the table is the challenge.
