Inspiring Enchantment & Illumination with Tarot & Intuitive Guidance

Happy Birthday, Virgo!

Correction does much, but encouragement does more.
— Johan Wolfgang von Goethe (spoken like the true Virgo he was)

The Sun enters the sign of Virgo today!

Virgos believe that work is a requirement for a virtuous, worthwhile, and fulfilling life.  But their name is often misunderstood, for Virgo is not about celibacy or virginity – the Goddess that rules over Virgo is the juicy, fertile Goddess of the Harvest, Ceres. She stands for all that is voluptuous and abundant, so unlike the stereotype, Virgo can be a sensual, pleasure-loving sign.

They like to live life to the fullest and they also like to do things to the very best of their ability.   But rather than being picky perfectionists, as popular myth would portray them, they just happen to have high standards, especially of themselves.  However, they need to be careful of overdoing it. For instance, Virgos often run the risk of workaholism.

Virgos tend to have keen intellects, and are very discriminating about those with whom they associate. They usually have excellent judgment about business matters and are not easily imposed upon or deceived.

In addition, Virgo folks often have an innate desire to be of service. They like to express their friendship and love in the form of finding smart solutions to everyday problems. Thus, Virgo is the pragmatic problem-solver, able to focus on details that others may overlook. They are often gifted doctors, nurses, teachers, therapists, researchers, scientists, and engineers. And Virgo rules the physical body, the temple of the spirit —  making Virgo one of the most gifted healers of the zodiac.
