Virgo Dates of Birth

Are you Virgo?

What are the Virgo dates of birth?

Virgo dates are between August 23 and September 22. If you were born between these dates you have Virgo as your sun sign, because that is the Zodiac sign where the sun was at your date of birth. But it differs a little from year to year, because of the leap years.

If your date of birth is the 23rd of August or the 22nd of September, you have to check if you really fall within the Virgo dates or not. It never differs more than a day in each direction. The start of the Virgo dates must be within the dates 23rd of August, and the end of it within the 22nd or 23rd of September. People born on other dates need not be concerned.

Virgo Dates: The Leap Year Bump

In astrology, your Virgo Zodiac sign (also called sun sign or star sign) is decided by the position of the sun at the moment of your birth, as seen from Earth. The sun takes a year to travel through the twelve Zodiac signs, but it’s not exactly a year of 365 days. The time it takes is closer to 365.25 days. That’s why we have leap years.

Every fourth year we add a day to the calendar, the 29th of February, making that year 366 days. Actually, there’s an additional rule, to make it more precise with the actual movement of earth and the sun: The starting year of a new century is not a leap year, unless it’s evenly divisible by 400. So, 1900 was not a leap year, but 2000 was.

The leap years make the dates of each Zodiac sign change slightly. Normally, Virgo starts on August 23 and ends on September 22, but that’s just the mean. In reality it changes slightly in a four year period from one leap year to the next.

Here are the leap years since the beginning of the 20th century:

Virgo Dates: Cusp or Not

If you were born on August 23rd, your sun may be on the very cusp (the starting point) of Virgo, or right by the end of Leo. If you were born on the 22nd or 23rd of September, your sun might be at the very end of Virgo or at the cusp of Libra.

You need to check with the Zodiac Sign Calculator (see the link below) or your exact horoscope, because on those dates it depends on what time of day you were born – and in what place.

It’s particularly important with this check If you were born far away from Greenwich, England, since that’s the base for the dates given for Virgo.

Virgo Dates: Mixed Zodiac Signs

Now, If you were born on August 23rd at a time when your sun is at the very end of Leo, you probably have a mixture of Leo and Virgo in your character. It’s a Leo inclined to be more of a Virgo. If your sun is at the very start (cusp) of Virgo, though, you’re definitely a Virgo – and a firm one at that.

If your sun is at the very end of Virgo, you may show personality traits of both Virgo and Libra, but If you were born at the very start of Libra, no matter how early in it, you’re most definitely a Libra.

That’s because each sign is the most powerful at its beginning, its cusp.

Decans Make a Difference

The strongest is not equal to the most typical, though. A Zodiac sign is its most typical at the part of it (decan) corresponding to its quality: cardinal, fixed or mutable.

Each Zodiac sign belongs to one of the four elements fire, earth, air, and water. It’s also one of the three qualities. So, four elements and three qualities make twelve possible combinations – the twelve signs of the Zodiac.

Virgo is the mutable earth sign. That means its most typical part is the last one – the ten degrees making its third decan, 21°-30° Virgo. That corresponds approximately to the dates September 12-22. If your birth date is within this range, you’re likely to be a very typical Virgo.

If you were born on late August, the 23rd to 31st, you’re still a Virgo, but with character traits comparable to those of Capricorn (the cardinal earth sign). If you were born on September 1-11. you have some tendencies similar to those of Taurus (the fixed earth sign).

Astrology is rather complicated, when dealt with seriously.

But the most important thing to decide is what sign you are. So, If you were born on August 23rd or September 22nd-23rd, please check with the Zodiac Sign Calculator (see the link below), or get your complete horoscope chart, to be sure of your star sign.

Your Virgo Zodiac Sign Guide: Everything to Know About the Detail-Oriented Earth Sign

As summer winds down, we embrace the last poolside days and retrain our eyes on the prizes to be won from returning to school or refocusing on the job. With the warmest days of the year moving to the rearview mirror and fall ahead, daily routines — that workout plan you want to stick to through the rest of the year or that volunteer opportunity you've been meaning to spend time on — come into focus. It must be Virgo season.

Annually, approximately between August 23 and September 22, the sun moves through the sixth sign of the zodiac, Virgo, symbolized by the Virgin or the Maiden.

Encompassing summer's last hurrah and leading into the Fall Equinox, we're eager to soak up every last moment of what might be the most playful, carefree season of the year while planning ahead in a major way. This pragmatic energy and striving to be present is brought to you by Virgo, an earth sign associated with cerebral thought, honing in on the details of life, a propensity to be of service to others, and a sensitive heart. These traits are owed to Virgo's ruling planet, Mercury, which oversees communication, transportation, technology, curiosity, and research.  

RELATED: 12 Celebrities Who Are Pragmatic, Heartfelt Virgos

A few brainy, dedicated, perfectionistic, big-hearted Virgos: Zendaya, Beyonce, Blake Lively, Melissa McCarthy, Michelle Williams, Taraji P. Henson, Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Hudson, Amy Poehler. These celebs are astrologically influenced to use their super communicator powers and self-expression to make their mark and difference in the world.  

Here, everything you need to know about the practical, thoughtful, down-to-earth sign. 

Virgo Personality Traits

Those born between August 23 and September 22 can generally assume that their sun sign is Virgo. (It's not definitive, because the sun moves between signs on different days annually.) Also note that while we tend to refer to ourselves as our sun sign, it's just one detail of a natal chart, which is basically a unique snapshot of the sky when you were born. But it's a detail that helps color your core sense of self, identity, personal style, self-esteem, and confidence. 

The master organizer of the zodiac

Typical sun in Virgo traits include being detail-oriented, perfectionistic, a fan of routine and lists and organization (although they can be conventionally neat and tidy in certain ways, like drooling over spreadsheet design, and totally sloppy in others, like leaving piles of clothes on their floor for days on end), health-conscious, mercurial, sensitive, giving, analytical, masters of research, and shrewd communicators. Their characteristics reflect themes covered by the Sixth House of Wellness & Daily Routine, which Virgo rules. The Sixth House oversees your daily grind, everyday routines, how you manage your regular schedule, as well as how you care for your fitness and health. 

The mutable earth sign

Every sign is assigned a quality (cardinal, mutable, or fixed), which explains the sign's basic energy. There's a cardinal, mutable, and fixed sign within every element (fire, earth, air, water). Virgo is the mutable one of the earth group, which makes them more flexible than other signs and interested in hearing many sides of an issue before making a decision. In fact, it's for this very reason that they can struggle to reach a conclusion, but once they do, you can rest assured they've left no stone unturned while gathering pertinent information.

Virgo's best personality traits:

Grounded empaths and lovers of language, knowledge, and being of service to those they love, you can trust that a Virgo in your life will be brimming with helpful information and action steps while also being one of the first people to offer a shoulder to lean or cry on. They are the brainy A students of the zodiac, quick to share what they know to steer the ship in the right direction — and if they don't, they'll go on a merciless hunt for those "just-right" details. They're the friend who feels more like a big sister or the yoga instructor whose flows and speeches seem intuitively, perfectly attuned to the moment. If you're dating a Virgo, they'll make sure they've scoured all of Yelp for the perfect spot with the best reviews, call ahead to ensure you get the best view, or offer up a gift that's so incredibly thoughtful, personal, and sweet, you're left shaking your head in awe. 

Virgo's worst personality traits:

Virgo's perfectionism and tendency to be their own worst critic can take a toll in just about every area of their life. Overthinking and overanalyzing, their Mercury-guided minds can often switch into overdrive, turning up the volume on their insecurities. This can manifest as procrastination or projecting their inner nitpicking onto others. They're also super-prone to high functioning anxiety and often worry themselves sick. If they're having trouble self-soothing, these Nervous Nelly, high-strung tendencies could make it challenging for people who are on a different emotional wavelength to be around them. 

What Virgos Are Like in Love & Bed

Virgo's romance style

If your date seems to dig all the little things about their day-to-day routine — from caring for a pet to watering their plants, taking their favorite spin class to writing lengthy emails to friends — you're likely seeing someone born under the influence of kind, information-gathering, helpful, downright sweet Virgo energy. The earth sign is pragmatic and perfectionistic, and while this might not be the stuff big, sweeping, cinematic romantic fantasies are made of, Virgoan energy is sure to appeal to anyone who values communication skills and being shown they're loved in thoughtful, service-oriented ways on the regular. 

Anyone who would like to forge a lasting bond with a Virgo would do well to lean into intellectually-stimulating conversation, taking care of their own bodies, minds, and souls as part of their everyday routine, and recognizing their lover's concerted efforts offer help and healing. They'll appreciate even the tiniest tokens of affection that prove you've paid attention, e.g. their favorite flower or a specially curated playlist.

Virgo's sexual style

While some might tease Virgos — aka the Virgin — for being too uptight and picky to let loose between the sheets, a Virgo who is comfortable, confident, happy, and ideally in love (they know they deserve it all) will easily put any heady hangups aside in the bedroom. Instead, their sensitive, service-oriented nature will be on full display. They'll think through all of the subtle aspects necessary for setting the mood during a sexy evening, like adding sensual essential oil to a diffuser or making sure they have their lover's favorite wine on hand. 

Given how cerebral they are, their favorite form of foreplay is nerding out over that book they just read, the documentary you both watched, or the op-ed everyone on Twitter was buzzing about today. And if you start trading notes about the ways you're giving back to your community through volunteer work or political action, steel yourself for fireworks. 

Once they're in the throes of a passionate encounter, they're eager to please, deriving a lot of their own pleasure from feeling like they've given their partner exactly what they want. Feeling chill enough in their own skin to speak up and share what they want can be a struggle for some Virgos, but once they've gotten cozy with it, they'll be extra specific, basically giving their lover a treasure map to bring them bliss. And by the way, that Virgoan specificity can extend to having a very particular fetish, whether it's for a particular type of restraint, position, or their go-to CBD oil. 

Virgo Compatibility

Wondering how Virgo matches up with your sign as a friend, a lover, a colleague, or in terms of any other one-on-one relationship? Here, their most simpatico partners as well as clash-prone pairings: 

Signs most compatible with Virgo:

Signs that share the same element tend to be the most in sync (e.g. two water signs, like Cancer and Scorpio). This is especially the case for two earth signs, both of whom have an innate appreciation for keeping it real. 

Earth is also traditionally compatible with water, because the two elements complement one another. Water signs help earth sit with their emotions and hit the pause button on rational thought in order to dream, while earth signs can guide water signs to plan and organize. That said, a Virgo often hits it off with a similarly pragmatic, thoughtful Taurus, heartfelt and sensitive Cancer, or industrious and tradition-minded Capricorn.

Signs least compatible with Virgo:

As with most of the zodiac signs, opposites can attract — and Virgo and Pisces often bond over being empaths who care almost too much for others (and perhaps one another) at times. This can make for a deep, otherworldly connection, but as Virgo is informed by Mercury and guided by reality, facts, and concrete data, and watery Pisces is ruled by spiritual, dreamy, and escapist Neptune, they might struggle against their core natures to get in sync. 

Virgo is also square (the most challenging angle that can exist between two signs) curious Gemini and philosophizing Sagittarius. Unless they have other positive aspects in their natal charts, Virgo can respect the other mutable signs for their adaptability and similar love of soaking up knowledge at every turn, but emotionally, Virgos might wince at Gemini's dualistic and flighty nature and interpret Sag's unfiltered preachiness as insensitivity.

What If You Have Virgo Elsewhere in Your Chart?

As mentioned previously, the sun sign is one of many aspects of a natal chart. When you were born, the moon and all the planets in our solar system were in one of the 12 signs and a particular position — all of which help to inform your personality and areas of your life. Here's what it means if Virgo shows up in any of the main areas of your chart: 

Virgo Moon

The moon, which spends about two to three days in each sign, influences your emotions and intuition. If it was in Virgo at the time of your birth, your head and your heart are inextricably linked. On a good day, this can make for a love of life's most minute details, thoughtfulness, and helpfulness, and on one that's not as good, hypersensitivity rooted in overthinking. 

Virgo Mercury

Mercury, which spends about two to three weeks in a sign, shapes your communication style. If it was in Virgo when you were born, you likely have a way with words and language, love making detailed lists,  and can throw together a gasp-worthy spreadsheet like nobody's business.  

Virgo Venus

Venus, which remains in a sign for about three to five weeks, influences how you behave in relationships and how you attract others. If you were born with the planet of love and beauty in Virgo, you will go to the ends of the earth to help someone you care about and offer gifts and gestures that were extremely thought out and well-researched. You appreciate when a partner matches you on that and shows they care in everyday, practical ways.

Virgo Mars

Mars, which remains in a sign for six or seven weeks, affects your energy, strength, sexual style, and how you experience courage. If you were born while the fiery, dynamic, fighter planet was in mutable, earthy Virgo, you're a bit of a workaholic, content to plug away at one project after the next, as long as it's part of a routine you enjoy sticking to. That said, you're also capable of adapting and shifting when necessary, and multitasking is your forte, thanks to your ruler Mercury. Feeling like you're contributing and making a difference on the job is crucial for you to stay interested and engaged. Colleagues likely lean on you for your research-savviness and willingness to lend an ear and sage advice.

Virgo Ascendant (or Rising)

Your ascendant or rising sign influences how you present yourself to the world. As a Virgo ascendant, you come off as down-to-earth, approachable, social, communicative, and eager to find solutions at every turn.

Virgo Personality Traits: Everything You Need To Know About the Zodiac Sign

Often described to be the perfectionist, Virgo is the astrological sign of those born between August 23 and September 22. Sophisticated, hardworking and detail-oriented, Virgos have high standards for themselves and are known to have similar expectations on others as well. Naturally skilled at planning and organization, they — think Beyoncé and Zendaya, two famous Virgos — are willing to take on and can gracefully pull off even the most challenging of projects.

Here, Stephanie Whaley Vinitwatanakhun, founder of astrology dating app Oromoon, discusses the zodiac sign’s personality traits, work ethic and compatibility with other signs.

Virgo is the sixth astrological sign in the zodiac.

Virgo is the sixth astrological sign in the zodiac, and it’s also connected to the sixth house in modern astrology. Motivated by a considerate nature, Virgo season commences at the tail end of summer in the northern hemisphere, a time akin to harvesting the fruit and abundance of our creative endeavors from the previous season, and carefully refining and establishing order before the resurgence of the second half of the zodiac.

Ruled by Virgo and Mercury, the sixth house represents thoughtful self-expression, daily routines, health and wellness, acts of service for others, and the pursuit of self-improvement for one and all.

Virgo is ruled by Mercury and it is an earth sign.

Governed by Mercury, the planet of communication and analytical interpretations, Virgos are known for their nurturing and meticulous demeanor, creating an environment for the rest of the world to communicate and execute with patience, tact and clarity. Responsibility and punctuality are at the top of Virgo’s list, adding to their long list of selfless attributes that creates a blueprint for compassion and empathy in the world.

With a benevolent and philanthropic disposition rooted in the heart of improving the well-being of their community and beyond, Virgos’ supportive characteristics encourage the rest of the zodiac to claim responsibility and accountability for themselves, while influencing a desire to help others who are less fortunate.

Virgos represent the sixth astrological sign of the zodiac — alluding to the halfway mark of all 12 archetypes — and are known as the “editors” of the cosmos. With efficient organizational skills, Virgos respond to the calling of their cosmic duty by maintaining order and balance between the seasons that came before them prior to handing the baton to the next cohort of signs.

Virgo Compatibility

Signs that are compatible with Virgo include but are not limited to fellow earth signs Taurus and Capricorn, who are known for their deep loyalty and (financial) responsibility.

Virgo can also cultivate of a spiritual and karmic relationship with water signs including Pisces (sister sign), Cancer and Scorpio, while creating a safe space rooted in honest vulnerability.

The pairing of earth and water signs is like a garden with plenty of water and nurturing — it not only thrives but also survives. And when two earth signs are brought together, an abundance of soil creates the blueprint for an ever expanding garden.

Virgo Characteristics

Personality Traits

The Virgo mantra is “Will you provide safety for my limitless service, experiencing each act of my intimate process?” Virgos are committed, compassionate souls, with a strong sense of duty driving their emotions and actions. In the Tarot, Virgo is represented by the Hermit card. Their self-awareness is derived from deep introspection, teaching us to reflect upon our inner wisdom (or lessons) in order to pave the way for new beginnings.


Observant and hardworking, Virgos are incredibly logical and analytical thought leaders, gracing our communities with a calm and collected demeanor that encourages inner healing and self-improvement. As mutable earth signs, Virgos’ keen and astute nature coupled with their discerning and hardworking skillset highlights their dependability and flexibility during times of uncertainty. When in doubt, call a Virgo. The continuous poise and grace exuded by this considerate sign creates an environment for all of us to sigh in relief when we find ourselves in need of help.


Given Virgos’ responsible and dependable attributes, these earthy creatures may overextend themselves for the benefit of the collective. Kind reminder that perfection is in the eye of the beholder, and it is more than acceptable to ask for help when our energies are depleted. Flaws and imperfections are merely based on one’s unique perspective. We maintain consistency within our productivity by learning to release that which is out of our control. Embedded in the acceptance of the inevitable, this option proves to be the healthiest when we are caught up in the minutia of the unnecessary. According to the Japanese philosophies of wabi sabi, there is limited progress when in search of perfection. We acknowledge that truth comes from the observation of nature, an environment in which straight lines do not exist.

Virgo Relationships

In romantic relationships, Virgos’ love language includes acts of service and planning for the future. To be with a Virgo is to be taken care of, for Virgos display their appreciation for their lovers and friends alike by helping out in any way they can lend a hand. “Through thick and thin” is common practice within their personal relationships, while serving as a mantra for their careers. Virgos’ resourceful and detail-oriented tendencies makes them indispensable colleagues, for problems that may arise are handled with ease and sophistication at a moment’s notice. As a result, Virgos also appreciate when their partnerships, both romantic and platonic alike, uphold similar values of humility and patience. Even while under pressure, Virgos have a remarkable ability to engage in effective communication that lends itself to efficient solutions. This type of elegance is why Virgos are exceptional at their craft — cue Beyoncé.

7 Reasons Why Virgo Is The Best Zodiac Sign

Humans have pondered the mysteries of the universe for millennia, tracking the sun’s vibrant motion, the moon’s beguiling cycle, and the swirl of boundless stars overhead. Astrology and astronomy were inextricably linked for thousands of years, and although these two fields have been disentangled over time, the mystical teachings of the cosmos still guide us today.

The study of astrology is expansive, complex, and transformative. Despite the nuances, the most fundamental principle of astrology centers on the 12 familiar star signs of the zodiac. Over the centuries, each sign has developed its own associations — including myths, animals, and colors — and its own characteristics. Every sign boasts an individual approach to life, complete with dynamic strengths and frustrating weaknesses.

The sun sign is the cosmic launching pad for both amateur and professional astrologers. Your sun sign is determined by your date of birth and represents your core personality, sense of self, basic preferences, and ways in which you move through the world. This astrological placement sheds light on your intrinsic gifts, as well as your blind spots. Joys, wishes, flaws, and fears are what make a sun sign special and unique. When combined with the other planets in your chart, it creates the distinctive profile that serves as your astrological fingerprint.

No sign is perfect on its own. The diversity of the zodiac completes the astrological wheel.

Ready to take your astrological knowledge to the next level? There are four triplicities and quadruplicities that further categorize the 12 signs. If these words sound like gibberish, don’t fret: The concepts are easy. "Triplicities" is astrospeak for elements, which include fire (the fire signs are Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius), earth (the earth signs are Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn), air (the air signs are Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius), and water (the water signs are Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces). Generally speaking, fire signs are passionate and exuberant, earth signs are practical and grounded, air signs are intellectual and curious, and water signs are intuitive and emotional.

Check out this month'sAllure Beauty Box, which is packed with products hand-picked by our editors — all for only $23.

Quadruplicities are the signs’ qualities. Cardinal signs, which include Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn, kick off new seasons. They are excellent at taking action and starting initiatives. Fixed signs, which include Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius, occur in the middle of seasons. They are the steady, consistent forces that maintain movement. Each season concludes with a mutable sign — Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, or Pisces — that possesses effortless fluidity well-suited to change and transformation. As we continue layering astrological concepts, we uncover a rich and complex practice that delivers insight into our truest selves.

Everything You've Ever Needed To Know About Virgo Zodiac Signs

If your birthday falls between approximately August 23 to September 22, then congrats: That means your zodiac sign is Virgo (but you probably already knew that!). Virgos are the organized and down-to-earth fixers of the zodiac with an amazing eye for detail and a knack for being efficient. Virgo energy can help us to get into a functional routine and clean up the messy areas of our lives.

Whether you're a Virgo, your crush or partner is a Virgo, or you just want to learn more about the 12 signs of the zodiac, here's the lowdown on everything you need to know about Virgo zodiac traits — and what it means if Virgo is a major influence in your astrological birth chart.

Virgo: The Zodiac's Organizer

Virgo is represented by the symbol of the maiden (who is often depicted holding chaffs of wheat), which speaks to their unpretentious vibe and natural sense of purity. Virgo's ruling planet is detail-oriented Mercury, which amplifies their observant and meticulous nature and gives them an analytical edge. As one of the mutable zodiac signs, Virgos are naturally adaptable to the ever-changing nature of life — they're great at staying organized and on top of their schedules, even in the midst of chaos. As Virgos are of the element of earth, they're highly focused on practical matters and tend to approach life from a pragmatic perspective.

"Much more than just critical fussbudgets, Virgos are flawless in their efficiency in and execution of the simplest to grandest of tasks," Virgo-born astrologer Marissa Leigh Jackson tells Bustle. "Virgos take a lot of heat, but they can handle it. They will listen to your random rants and always remember your coffee order. Keep them around."

Virgo vibes are no-nonsense and all about improvement, so they're helpful to call on for working on any cleaning or organization projects, or embarking on health- or wellness-related goals. This is also a routine-oriented energy, so Virgos thrive when they can get into a thoroughly thought-out rhythm, stick to their plans, and be their productive selves.

Virgo In Love & Relationships

Virgos have a natural inclination to improve the world around them, so it makes sense that many Virgo romantic traits reflect that, too. They're helpful and attentive partners who enjoy offering favors and advice in order to show their love. Acts of service are definitely the Virgoan love language, so while they may not be mushy and romantic about their feelings, their willingness to run an errand for you when you're busy or help you prepare for an important work event are expression of their affections for you. Virgos are known for being picky and having high expectations in love, but once they find someone who's compatible with their lifestyle and appreciative of their talents, they can be great partners.

The signs most compatible with Virgo are fellow earth signs Taurus and Capricorn, as well as water signs Cancer and Scorpio. Virgos love tidiness, so make sure you clean up nicely before meeting up and thoroughly plan the details of your date — and don't be late! Basic manners are important to a Virgo, so be punctual and presentable if you're trying to woo them.

If Virgo Is Your Sun Sign...

If Virgo is your sun sign, then you've got a scrupulous eye, a strong sense of duty toward others, and a penchant for striving toward perfection in all things. These qualities can make you productive. When you're passionate about something, you'll put in your all to meet every demand and ensure every T is crossed and I is dotted. Virgos are tireless in their quest to get things "just so," but they're able to make all the hard work look easy, as they rarely seek attention or accolades for their efforts. You can spot an error or a typo from a mile away — because you want everything to be the best that it can be.

While Virgos criticisms are almost always coming from a place of love, be wary of coming off as nit-picky or harsh. Constructive criticism just feels like criticism if the person receiving it hears it too often, so try to let go of your need to control every facet of things and go with the flow. Flaws and imperfections are a part of life, and it's OK not everything and everyone around you meets the high expectations that you set for yourself.

If Virgo Is Your Moon Sign...

Your moon sign represents your more private, emotional, and vulnerable side, and also speaks to what makes you feel comforted. If your moon sign is Virgo, you're probably more reserved and controlled about expressing your emotions than most. You have a tendency to try to rationalize your feelings, although this can sometimes be frustrating for you — as not all feelings make logical sense! It's not always easy for you to talk about your feelings, so you prefer to express your care by doing helpful things for others rather than opening up.

If Virgo Is Your Rising Sign...

Your rising sign represents your surface-level self and the version of you that you present to the outside world. If your rising sign is Virgo, you're naturally refined and have a simple but classic sense of style. While you may not try to steal the show, you make a good first impression, as you come off as cool, calm, and collected. You have a knack for presenting yourself as being organized and put-together, even if you feel scattered inside.

Virgo (astrology)

Sixth astrological sign of the zodiac

This article is about the astrological sign. For the constellation, see Virgo (constellation).

Not to be confused with Virgin Mary (disambiguation).

Virgo (♍︎) (Greek: Παρθένος, Parthenos) is the sixth astrological sign in the Zodiac. It spans the 150–180th degree of the zodiac. Under the tropical zodiac, the Sun transits this area on average between August 23 and September 22, and the Sun transits the constellation Virgo from approximately September 16 to October 30. Individuals born during these dates, depending on which system of astrology they subscribe to, may be called Virgos or Virgoans; they are also represented in newspaper horoscopes with other astrological signs. The symbol of the maiden is based on Astraea. In Greek mythology, she was the last immortal to abandon Earth at the end of the Silver Age, when the gods fled to Olympus – hence the sign's association with Earth.


The constellation Virgo has different origins depending on which mythology is being studied. Most myths generally view Virgo as a maiden with heavy association with wheat. In Greek and Roman mythology, they relate the constellation to Demeter, the Greek goddess of the harvest, or her daughter Persephone, queen of the Underworld. Another association is with the myth of Parthenos (meaning virgin in Greek), which explains how the actual constellation Virgo came to be.[8]

In the legend, Parthenos is the daughter of Staphylus and Chrysothemis, and sister to Rhoeo and Molpadia. Rhoeo had been impregnated by Apollo, but when her father discovered her pregnancy, he assumed it was by a random suitor and was greatly ashamed. As punishment, he locked her in a box and threw her in a river. After the terrible fate of their sister, Parthenos and Molpadia lived in fear of their father's terrible wrath. One evening, Staphylus left his daughters in charge of a very valuable bottle of wine. When they both accidentally fell asleep, one of their swine broke the bottle. Terrified of their father, the sisters fled to a nearby cliff and threw themselves off. But because of his previous relations with Rhoeo, Apollo saved his two sisters and delivered them to the safety of nearby cities in Cherronseos. Molpadia ended up in Castabus where she changed her name to Hemithea and was worshipped as a local goddess for many years. Parthenos settled in Bubastus where she was also worshipped as a local goddess. According to another story, Parthenos was a daughter of Apollo who made the constellation to commemorate her death at a young age.[8]

Another Greek myth states that Virgo is the Athenian maiden Erigone, daughter of Icarius. After Icarius was murdered by his shepherds in a drunken rage, Virgo hanged herself in grief, while her dog Maera thrown herself off a cliff in grief.[9] Zeus or Dionysus pitied the family placed them in the sky as constellations: Erigone became Virgo, Icarius became Bootes, and Maera became Canis Minor.[10]

While this is only one myth of the origin of Virgo, she is seen throughout all manner of myths. In Egyptian mythology, the time when the Sun was in the constellation Virgo marked the beginning of the wheat harvest, thus connecting Virgo back to the wheat grain. In Christianity, Jesus was born to a virgin in the town of Bethlehem ("bread"); the ancient Zodiac ended in the constellation Leo and began with Virgo. Virgo has the equivalent sign in Indian astrology as the Kanya (which also means "maiden"), and has even been connected with the Virgin Mary.[8]

Virgo star sign traits and personality

Virgo’s strengths are said to be loyalty and kindness, while they’re practical and hardworking.

Virgoans are also said to be attractive, smart and sophisticated.

Their drawbacks are the desire to take centre stage and getting obsessed over details.

What signs are Virgos compatible with?

Best match:

Cancer - Cancer values Virgo's loyalty and when these two star signs get together there is great potential for long lasting love.

Pisces -  Pisces are also a good match for a Virgo. Both signs are opposite each other in the zodiac, so can make up for qualities the other lacks.

Worst match:

Gemini is considered the least compatible sign for Virgos, due to their flirtatious nature.

This is because the story of Virgo’s love life can be one of vulnerability and feelings of unworthiness.

Sagittarius - these two star signs are not generally viewed as a strong match due to their different lifestyles.

Which celebrities are Virgos?

  • Prince Harry
  • Blake Lively
  • Cameron Diaz
  • Beyoncé
  • Jennifer Hudson
  • Nick Jonas
  • Adam Sandler

What is the Virgo Zodiac symbol?

A Virgo star sign is associated with organisation, good communication and high intelligence.

When astrologists read shapes in the stars centuries ago, they decided the glyph for Virgo represented an 'unspoilt' virginial woman. Some say this is shown as an 'M' shape, for 'maiden,' while others interpret the crossed loop to represent the closed legs of a chaste virgin.


The crossed loop may also represent a gatekeeper, which speaks to Virgo's emotional sensibilities and strong sense of right and wrong.

Virgos often modest hard-workers who sometimes struggle with impostor syndrome but make for excellent friends and partners.

Where does the Zodiac come from?

The Zodiac is the term used to describe the circle of 12 divisions of celestial longitude that are centred upon the path of the sun.

The 12 divisions share the names we know as our star signs.

The term zodiac derives from Latin zōdiacus - meaning "circle of animals".

Throughout history, the zodiac has been used to predict or echo characteristics of personality.

Virgo colour, day and luck numbers

Virgo's lucky number is 5 and also numbers that add up to 5 such as 14, 32 and 41.

Their lucky colours are green, yellow and white, which they'll do well to wear on every sixth day of the month, which is said to be auspicious for this sign.
