Virgo star chartThe Constellation Virgo
Virgo is traditionally seen as the appellation of the goddess of justice, Astraea, the virgin daughter of Zeus and Themis. She is known for holding the scales of justice, from the constellation Libra which is nearby. Astraea was said to have ruled the world with her wise ways until man became so corrupt and and uncaring that she returned to the skies in disgust.

Other mythology ties Virgo to Persephone, daughter of Demeter, the goddess of agriculture and known for her innocence and purity of heart. She later became the Queen of the Underworld, and was taken by Hades. There are still other myths that tie Virgo to virtually every major goddess from mythology.

The constellation Virgo is most frequently seen as the arms and torso of Astraea, holding a sheaf of wheat.

The Sign of Virgo
Virgo TapestryAs a sign of the zodiac, Virgo is referred to as a feminine or introverted, negative sign. Its element is earth and it is one of the four mutable signs. Traditionally, in astrology, Libra is ruled by the planet Mercury and its opposite sign is Pisces. Libra's period, when it is occupied by the Sun, runs from August 23 to September 23, and the 6th House is the house Virgo rules.

In astrology the astrological signs of the twelve houses equal segments or divisions of the zodiac. According to astrological beliefs, celestial phenomena reflect or govern human activity on the principle of "as above, so below", so that the twelve signs at the same time are held to represent twelve basic personality types or characteristic modes of expression.

Those born under the sign of Virgo are said to be analytical, shrewd,witty, responsible, intelligent, meticulous and insightful. They can also be seen as perfectionistic, conventional, reserved, and critical.
