Astrology Zodiac Signs: Virgo {Work and Health}

Every sign in the zodiac represents an aspect of yourself, even if you don’t have any planets in that house. Understanding your zodiac sign at birth allows you to be more authentic. Understanding the zodiac sign of others expands your acceptance and celebration of diversity. This naturally creates a better world for us all.

Meet Virgo The Zodiac Sign

If your favorite subject revolves around green drinks, organic supplements, bodily cleanses, gym memberships or clean energy, you’re probably a Virgo.

An evolved Virgo not only has the motivation most of us lack to achieve health, wealth and a better world, they possess the energy to struggle through, long after the rest of us have given up and gone to bed. When everyone else is sitting around, Virgo wants to be moving.

They’re one of the best workers of the zodiac. They achieve their target with planning, organization, meticulous focus, and most of all, a mysterious, undaunted diligence.

Virgo tends to shy away from the limelight, as their highest calling is to help or uplift others. Although they’re excellent, qualified performers, they shine best as a backup singer, producer, or assistant when they’ve awakened to their true self.

The signs wouldn’t be so interesting if they didn’t also have their downfalls. For Virgo, it’s self-righteousness and its tight pal, merciless criticism of others.

If you should happen to visit Virgo in their home, don’t expect the red carpet, or even an offer for a drink. An undeveloped Virgo is too frantically busy with their self-important life to consider the well-being of others.

Planets In Virgo

Which area of your life could use some improvement? When the sun is in Virgo from August 23rd to September 22nd, or when strategic planets are in Virgo, either in the sky or in your birth chart, it’s a perfect time to dedicate yourself to projects which have lost steam.

You’ll likely feel motivated to move forward in meticulous, efficient and practical increments toward some physical or material goal. And you’ll likely achieve it.

You don’t necessarily need genius or natural talent to learn a musical instrument, organize your budget, or get the body you want. You simply need Virgo, or plain, old-fashioned, grinding, unfaltering… work.

As you practice and progressively refine your skills, your success is tantamount to ‘did and done.’

On the other hand, watch out for perfectionist or judgmental attitudes, which only result in anxiety, self-defeat, and a lack of clients and customers.

The Challenge

Virgo Zodiac Symbol,
Virgo Zodiac Symbol,

Although Virgo thrives on organization and order, somehow their lives end up with an anxiety-inducing mess.

This is likely due to their relentless devotion to petty meticulousness, in which they find themselves clashing with others, and life itself – which isn’t always perfect.

How can Virgo cultivate their healthy, organized and spotless world without destroying those who aren’t – thereby generating even more chaos, not to mention loss of friendships?

The challenge for Virgo is to fix problems, clean up messes, and restore order with grace, consideration of others, and refined, polished elegance.

The Victory

Virgo represents the seed planted in the Earth, rooted in darkness. Through struggle, it breaks free from its sheath and grows toward the light. This doesn’t always occur with calculated smoothness, but it’s an incredible triumph when it’s achieved.

Virgo eventually lets go of meticulous organizing and planning which is often used to avoid work, and therefore failure. They learn to flow spontaneously with the unexpected twists and twirls of everyday life. Now they’ve succeeded in their very life mission.

They rise to the occasion when they can simply “be,” rather than zeroing in on how things could be better. Things could always be better. But how do they improve? It’s by dancing with reality as it is in each moment, that physical needs are met.

The lesson for Virgo is:  Solve issues and contribute to society by releasing expectations, joining the rest of the world, and embracing a delicate, rhythmic and harmonious flow with the universe.
