Being a Virgo or your Ascendant is Virgo:
As a Virgo Sun sign, you are the sixth astrological sign in the zodiac. This also makes you the second Earth sign and the second Mutable sign. Like Gemini, Mercury is your ruling planet and represented by the 6th house – ‘I serve’.
Your psychological nature is nervous and secondary. Before you take action, you cautiously ponder over things and you review all possible alternatives and reactions. You strive systematically to find the best possible response to any given problem. Above all, you are a perfectionist and you have no rest until you optimise a situation, in each and every area, be it professional, pragmatic, aesthetic or in pleasure. You do not accept spontaneity and to fully enjoy life and go further, you consider that demanding the best is the least you can do, even though it is detrimental to the rough forces associated with your instinct. Intellectual elements intervene before both the physical ones and your feelings: it is one of the essential clues to understanding your personality.
You are brainy, perspicacious, attentive to detail and numbers, analytical, serious, competent, scrupulous, sensible, modest, logical, tidy, well-organized, clean, hard-working, provident, honest, faithful, reserved, shy, helpful, a perfectionist, but also narrow-minded, calculating, irritating, petty, anxious, cold, repressed or caustic.
Foods you like are root vegetables: carrots, turnips, other bulb type vegetables, potatoes etc… You’re also likely to enjoy dried fruits. Herbs and aromatics delights including lilies of the valley, myrtles, ferns, Venus-hair-ferns, bittersweets, clovers and lavenders.
In the body: Virgo governs the intestine.
