Ruled by Mercury and the 6th sign of the Zodiac, Virgo is a mutable earth sign, which brings balance to the Leo fire of last month with a grounded, pragmatic perspective. The Virgo side of Mercury is focused on organizing, analyzing and applying information. Mercury, being more naturally an Air planet, than an Earth planet, brings a cerebral, detached flavor to Virgo’s earthy manifest nature.
Virgo is concerned with practical matters, and the practical application of these things in the service of others. In Virgo we see greater expectations and potentials in our existence beyond mere creative gratification and self-assuring self-expression that we found in Leo. Our Virgo nature says it isn’t enough to simply exist, we must put that existence to use by helping others. However, we must be aware that the danger in Virgo is to immerse ourselves so totally in idealized perfection is that the means becomes more important than the end.
