Vedic Astrology and Virgo
Many individuals will pick up the newspaper
and read their daily horoscope, but few really
understand the true meaning being the zodiac
symbol they were born under. With Vedic Astrology,
the symbols or signs of the Zodiac that an individual
is born under are considered as characteristic
traits of that individual. In the Zodiac, the
sun represents the inner nature, character,
and personality of individuals.
The sixth symbol of the Zodiac is Virgo, the
Virgin, which is considered to be an earth sign.
The symbol for Virgo is a virgin who is holding
sheaves of wheat within her hands, which symbolizes
wisdom that has been gained through experience.
Virgo the Virgin is considered to be a mutable
sign, which is ruled by the planet Mercury that
is considered to be the messenger from the gods,
as well as a magical trickster.
The planet Mercury controls the intellect and
communicative functions of individuals who are
born under the Virgo sign. It also controls
female Virgos who are intellectual, critical,
and analytical in their approach to life whenever
it is in the right cycle.
Individuals who are born under the symbol of
Virgo the Virgin are inclined to be practical,
industrious, and adaptable. They seem to possess
a remarkable eye for detail. Virgos are shy,
but are waiting for that perfect love, so they
are also idealistic. Disappointment will harden
them to become cynical and skeptical, which
is due to disappointments that have been either
discriminating in nature or on a more sensitive
issue. Virgos are known to be intellectual,
but yet critical, especially of their own self
and of the circumstances around them.
Individuals born under the sign of Virgo tend
to be very health-conscious and try to stay
in good health by participating in a regular
exercise program so they can continue to stay
physically fit. They tend to enjoy tennis, swimming,
biking, fishing, racquetball, and sailing, but
not competitively, just mostly for fun. Whatever
skills Virgos seek, they aim to be the best
in it. They tend to have talents in a variety
of crafts such as designing and dressmaking,
and may participate in the art of cartography
and philately. Virgos enjoy reading books and
magazines as well as writing, so communication
is very important to them.
Virgos are perfectionists and are ceaseless
in their pursuit. They have an irresistible
urge to improve everything and everyone, with
irresistible motives of helping others. They
are service-oriented in seeking to improve the
environment by pursuing careers in health fields
such as teaching and counseling.
Virgos who have a tendency to act the martyr
will use guilt as a weapon when their offerings
are ignored. This is when Virgos can be destructive
in their motives, but not on purpose. Virgo
the Virgin rules the sinus, respiratory system,
and bowels of the body, so they are prone to
colds, flu, allergies, constipation, and problems
with the intestines. They complain of black
moods or bouts of depression and can be despondent
Their colors are blue, yellow, navy, lilac,
and yellow with blue being the principal color.
The birthstone for Virgos is the sapphire, which
is a combination of corundum and was known as
a love charm in some ancient societies. Sapphires
are available in a variety of colors with some
even being transparent, but the most valuable
of these are the blue ones. The flowers and
plants commonly known to be associated with
Virgos are the aster, ivy, fern, and the chrysanthemum.
