“I SERVE/I ANALYSE
Virgo is the 6th Zodiac sign and the 2nd earth sign; symbolizing analysis, care and order. Virgo represents a systematic approach to concerns of existence. This earth sign is representative of the age period of 35-42, incarnating to ground dispersed energies and ideas. Pivotal stages in the evolution of their consciousness will include: efforts of an adult ego to provide structure to life, as well as delivering ordered contributions of service to the world. This stage of evolution comes through an adult making their way into the world, solving problems, including mid-life crises. Virgo can be seen as the evolutionary stage between Leo and Libra, transmuting fixed, unwavering and forthright energies into gracious, social and diplomatic ones.
Virgos are logical, and love practical and clever projects. They tend to maintain a serious image, with only certain types of humor appealing to them. They have strong moral tendencies. Virgo’s can find a genuine enthusiasm for complicated tasks and they are a great asset in any work environment. However, they can overdo it on mental stimulation, leading to burnout and feeling fried. They are secretive in nature, and are most certainly internal beings. They differ from the dreamy inner world of the Cancer and Pisces, as their mind is taken up with solving, analysing and evaluating, rather than dreaming and visualising.
Virgo is the second sign to be ruled by Mercury after Gemini, which is why intellect is so prominent in their lives. The influence of Mercury allows them to be great communicators, and like Gemini they are quick and succinct thinkers. However the traits of light-speed and hyper-independence are tempered in Virgo, instead, the Winged-God’s favour of helping others is brought to the fore-front. Mercury will give Virgos bundles of energy, which can scatter towards nervousness and fidgeting if they become unbalanced. When used well, this vast energy will enable them to get a lot done. Virgo’s are service-oriented, loving to help others and complete a job well done. They plan and work towards goals for their future, and failing is not an easy task for them. A key point to ensuring they don’t become compulsive, or over-focused, is to get back in touch with their inner-serenity. A Virgo loves to indulge in spontaneity and improvisation too, yet an underlying structure and plan will be essential to that enjoyment.
Virgo’s indulge in wordplay and wit; however, their tendency to take things literally can dampen humour. They prefer not to state their needs verbally; they will expect their close friends and family to meet their silent expectations. As being largely concerned with their mental body, they can lose touch with their intimacy and emotions, making them seem modest or prudish. Therefore, dropping their conventional moral stance and expressing their feelings and desires without restraint is a great way to grant them freedom from their mind.
