23 August – 22 September
Virgo is a mutable earth sign ruled by the ever restless Mercury. Symbolised by the Virgin, Virgos strive to achieve a sense of purity in all aspects of their lives, with a highly discriminating sense of what is good and bad. Commonly touted as the perfectionists of the Zodiac, the detail-orientated Virgo mind is forever in over-drive, thoroughly analysing and dissecting every situation they are confronted with (however big or small), before making any kind of decision to act.
Observant and analytical, Virgos are always careful with what and whom they let enter their lives and have an acute ability to sense any ulterior or suspicious motives in others. Those lucky enough to have a Virgo as an ally will gain an unwaveringly reliable friend, who is always be on hand to offer level-headed advice. Though their extreme attention to detail and an inherent sense of responsibility can lead typical Virgos to put themselves under unnecessary pressure, complicating and stalling at otherwise straight-forward situations.
