There is not much that escapes the attention of a Virgo. They are perfectionists and they can be critical of themselves and others. Virgo is the sixth astrological sign in the Zodiac, which spans the period between August 23rd and September 22nd. The symbol associated with this sign is the Virgin. Virgos are earth signs, so they can be practical and unemotional when it comes to making decisions. 

They also have a very analytical mind and like nothing more than to scrutinize something in great detail.They are helpful people and will take on projects that no one else wants to do because they feel that someone has to do it. They are good listeners but can also be somewhat judgmental at times. 

Their criticism should not be taken personally because they tend to analyze every situation from all angles before coming to a decision about what needs to be done or choosing a plan of action. 

They make great assistance because nothing escapes their attention to a detail trained eye – they go through each possibility in a methodical way. Virgos can also be hard to get close to because they tend to keep others at a distance especially if they think others might hurt them emotionally or financially in some way.

Virgo aesthetics

Since the beginning of their lives, Virgos have been seen as perfectionists. They’re known for their organisational skills and attention to detail. Virgo’s are also quite meticulous when it comes to choosing their clothes. Everything in their closet is well chosen and extremely well preserved. The less is more in their choice of garments. 

Virgos tend to dress in a subtle and tasteful manner but they may sometimes appear a little conservative compared to other zodiac signs. They do not like bold patterns or loud colours. Instead, they choose soft and sharp pieces that aren’t too masculine or feminine. Many Virgos opt for neutrals such as beige, green or grey-toned items that complement rather than clash with their skin tone.

If you have a Virgo friend, you’ll notice that they are very particular about the fabrics and cuts of clothes they buy as well as the colour combinations they wear. Their wardrobe tends to be well catalogued with everything stored according to its season so they can easily find what they need when it comes time to get dressed each day.

In the sky

In Greek mythology, Virgo is represented by a goddess of justice – Dike. Daughter of Zeus and Themis – a Greek titans. Dike was placed on earth as a human in the Golden Age to rule over human justice. Golden age was a time of everlasting spring and people didn’t know old age. 

When Zeus overthrew his father, he fulfilled the prophecy that marked the start of the Silver Age. Four seasons were introduced and people turned old and grey. Dike urged people to return back to the ideals of their predecessors as the worst is yet to come. She gave up and flew up in the mountains, turning her back onto humans. Bronze and Iron Age followed, which made humans weary. Dike left the earth and flew to the skies.

Virgo is the largest zodiac constellation and consists of 20 stars with known planets, more than any other constellation. Brightest star Spica is 15th brightest star in the sky and is 260 light years away from the solar system and is classed as the Type II Supernova.

‘Happy Birthday (their name)! You are an example of perfection ’
