Virgo, the Virgin
Virgo, you are the sixth sign of the zodiac, and symbolized by the Virgin, also called the harvest maiden. You pay close attention to detail and are observant, meticulous, industrious and hard-working, which earns you trust and confidence. The Virgin holds sheaths of wheat, which symbolize her wisdom, for she is careful, even in choosing her perfect lover, and willing to wait patiently. Virgo is not boastful, she displays modesty in all things, and is the definition of perfectionism, which is why you tend to be so critical, but you are especially self-critical. Others see you as trustworthy and competent. You are the "go-to" friend that uses your humanitarian heart, supreme logic and precise analytical skills to solve problems. You're well-liked, intelligent and destined to achieve success in your lifetime. Virgo, you are the Astrological Observer.
Your ruling planet is Mercury, the Messenger of the Gods, who governs commerce, profit, curiosity and messages. Mercury's influence bestows upon those born under your sign the highest levels of logic, a sharp intellect, an amazing flair for words, a quick wit and genius reasoning skills. Haven't you noticed that your memory is able to hold vast amounts of information which you can easily recall at a later time to analyze? That's Mercury's gift to you.
Your element is Earth and you love to engage in the world around you through your five senses, and most especially, touch and taste. You have a tendency to becoming a work-a-holic, but that's because you put everything you have into any goal you set out to accomplish. You are naturally easy-going and kind.
Wednesdays are your luckiest day of the week with early evening as your luckiest hours; your number is five. Silvery gray, the color of your ruling planet is also your color, and your astrological birthstone is the sardonyx, which is the stone of strength and protection. The flower associated with Virgo is the Morning Glory.
