Virgo in Astrology
Virgo people tend to be very conscious of details. They may appear nervous or obsess over health issues. They are likely to be neat and orderly, at least in some area of their life, although they may exhibit the opposite tendency in cases where they have not yet found their guiding principle of organization.
Virgos love work, service to others and the gathering of the fruits of the material world, as symbolized by the harvest. They are also likely to be a good conversationalist, with wide-ranging knowledge and interesting ideas. They can be analytical and perhaps overly fond of detail, with perfectionist tendencies, and they may miss out on the big picture by concentrating on the micro. It also benefits them to learn the fine line between discrimination and criticism.
Virgos' mission in life is the purification of their activity in pursuit of their goals, manifesting their inherent love of excellence in all strivings.

In this step 3, zodiac signs, of the learn astrology guide to your natal chart/horoscope, you will learn about the Virgo zodiac sign, the second of the earth signs.
Virgo is mutable (changeable) in nature and is the second sign ruled by the planet Mercury. The sign of Virgo is the sign of the Virgin. After the dramatic flair and me centredness of the Leo. The zodiac now turns to the sign of Virgo to put this evolved personality to service for society and it's processes. Virgo energy is the analytical energy of the zodiac. Virgo's love to understand how all the parts of a process fit together into a perfectly functioning streamlined process. Infact Virgo's will be the first to notice if something does not work in a harmonious fashion as part of a process. To them it will stick out immediately and loom larger than all the working parts. Virgo's notice the faults. This is because ultimately they are there to fix them and for that they need to be able to see them. This is not so easy of course when they are dealing with other people as what they will quite quickly see are the persons failings.
The sign of Virgo is somewhat like the alchemists of old who wished to turn lead into gold. A Virgo will try and perfect the day to day routines of the society they find themselves. They will do this by gradually refining the raw materials of society. If you want a task repeated and refined until it's in it's perfected state a Virgo is your best bet. Virgo being an earth sign and mutable (changeable) in nature, reflects their desire to change the earth and the society they find themselves in.
Virgo is ruled by the planet Mercury or Hermes in greek mythology. The sign of the cadeuceus, as used by the medical profession, is connected with Hermes. As such the Virgo energy is very much connected with health and healing. As they wish to perfect society so they wish to perfect and heal the body. Virgo's are often fascinated with health and healing and have a great understanding of the healing arts. They also have a very strong mind body connection and are greatly affected by living a healthy or unhealthy lifestyle, even more so than the other signs.
With their eye for detail. Virgos make good surgeons, they are also often connected with the fashion industry as they have such an eye for perfection, only the best is good enough for them. Virgos are prolific in the health industry and can make great healers or enlighten people with their knowledge of drugs and remedies. The Shadow side of the Virgo energy is the critic gone mad, be it to yourself or to others. It is the perfectionist for whom nothing is good enough. It is the person who is so focused on all the details and failings of something that he can no longer remember anything good from the big picture. It is the hypercondriac who looks at every food label and decides nothing is edible.
Zodiac Sign Compatibility
The most compatible zodiac signs with Virgo are generally considered to be Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio and Capricorn and the least compatible zodiac signs Gemini and Sagittarius.
Comparing sun signs is a quick and easy way to give a general idea of compatibility. However, to unlock the real power of astrology to fully understand someone or how compatible you are with them, we need to calculate other planet placement factors from their date of birth, and compare them to your own, and then interpret the results to give more specific information. If you would like to explore this further, please see astrology compatibility reports.

Star Signs - Sun Signs
The symbol of Virgo the Maiden was chosen by astrologers to represent people born under this sign because there is a cool, clear quality to the way that a typical Virgo person thinks.
Virgo people are usually very gentle and quiet, and love small animals and growing things. Many Virgos love to do detailed things and are talented at crafts like dressmaking. They will work hard to create something which is beautiful and useful at the same time. People born under the sign of Virgo are often happy to be alone, providing they know that they are needed and appreciated by others. In fact, the most important thing to Virgo people is service. They are always ready to help others, and are very sympathetic to their friend's problems. Often they are shy and sensitive, but deep down are generous with their love and their talents.
Virgo is an earth sign, like Taurus and Capricorn. If you are a Virgo, you will know how good you feel when you have been able to help somebody else in some way. Also you will get great pleasure from making something with your own hands. You will probably find that as you grow up the kind of work you do will become very important to you, for you need to feel you are contributing something worthwhile to life. Don't ever feel that noisier, bossier people are better than you, because your special gentleness and quietness is much needed in this world.

How to Obtain Free Chart
How to get your free natal chart
Not too long ago, obtaining a copy of your natal chart entailed either going to an Astrologer, using a specialized chart service, or studying how-to astrology books. Now, it’s pretty much as simple as pointing your browser to an appropriate website.
A great site for getting a professional, accurate natal chart is Astrodienst. This is the website to visit for a printable birth chart as well as graphs, ephemerides, and more.*
A more straightforward method of finding out your astrology positions is as follows:
What you’ll need:
- Your Birth Data, which includes your birth day, year, time, and place. If you don’t know your time of birth, you can still determine some basic positions.
Click through to our free natal chart service, and carefully input your birth data in the form.
At the top of the screen you will find a list of planets and the signs they occupy in your chart. For example, it may read Sun Virgo, Moon Aries, etc. You can also find the sign of your Ascendant with this list. A free natal chart report, which interprets a number of factors in the natal chart, is displayed. The interpretations include some of those found on our site.
If You Don’t Have a Birth Time: You can still find out some “basic stats” with only a birth date. I recommend following the steps above, and inputting your birth time as “Time Unknown”. This will give you what Astrologers call a “Noon Chart”. You won’t know your true Ascendant sign, and your Moon sign may not be accurate.
****If you’re unsure of your natal chart positions, you can look them up here: Natal Chart report.
If you prefer we look up your natal chart positions, please send an email:
If you have difficulty determining your natal chart details (that is, the sign of your Sun, Moon, Mercury, and so forth), send Kristen an email at [email protected] with your full birth information (birth date, time, and place) and she will provide you with the positions for free. Be sure to tell her what you’re requesting (Natal Chart Details). This is not a free natal chart, which I offer online here (self-service): our free birth chart report. Instead, it’s a list of the positions in your chart, such as “The Moon is in Aries” or “Mercury is in the fourth house”. An example of this basic position listing is as follows:

Please note that there are no strings to this–we have been freely sending people their astrological birth data and helping them find their positions since 2002. However, please be patient if we don’t get to your email the first time around. There are busy times when we might miss an email. This is especially the case with emails sent to any address other than [email protected] Purchases are never necessary to get the basic information you need to learn about your chart.
*A note on Free Chart Calculation Services:
Please note that when I say accurate above, it is in an almost perfect sense! While we all wish there were no ambiguities when creating charts, ambiguous historical time zones are a reality and no time zone database is entirely correct as a result.
Cafe Astrology offers the Free Report section at astro.cafeastrology.com which is particularly good for newcomers to astrology but is visited by people of all levels of understanding of astrology. When there are fewer options, it’s easier to learn. It also offers a table and astrological sentences that help students of astrology understand the basic positions in their charts.
I also offer a free chart service at Zodiacal.com which has more in-depth options for chart calculations (this is my newer site that is fully functional but will fill in with more interpretations as I get to them). This can be used by students of astrology of all levels as well but it is probably better for those people really getting into the subject and wanting to explore additional techniques.
As I’ve done since opening the site in 2002, I recommend astro.com as an in-depth chart service for its brilliant options. You can add additional points such as a full range of asteroids at this excellent site. A newer and most excellent chart service site can be found at Astro Seek.
Note that with all astrological software, there are some discrepancies in the time zone atlases which can throw off some charts a little, most evident in the Ascendant and house cusps. It’s frustrating to newcomers since people have all sorts of ideas of which software is accurate and which isn’t, but most don’t realize that it almost always comes down to the problems with the atlas utilities (time zones), all of which have ambiguities. Most professional software programs use the ACS Atlas which is excellent, but of course, has some issues with historical time zones as do all historical time zone databases. My Zodiacal site linked just above currently uses the ACS Atlas, astro.com does at the time of this writing, and most of my offline software uses it. It is probably the industry standard, but it’s always good to remember that like any time zone atlas, it is imperfect.
Our free natal chart here uses the Geonames time zone atlas which is also excellent, although some time zones for birthdates before 1970 are inaccurate as well. It’s superior for dates after 1970.
It is for these reasons that I have always encouraged people to write to us to check the software atlas’ accuracy (it’s helpful to have a human take a look!) or to put in some research themselves. Even though for some dates nobody knows for sure whether daylight savings was in effect, it’s useful for people to know about the issue. For example, for some people who have written to me about their charts, I have provided them with the two possible charts in ambiguous cases, which differ by one hour. This way, they can at least work with the two and open their minds to the idea that one isn’t exactly right! So, no matter which software you use, it’s a good idea to check up on the time zone that was in effect at the time of your birth. My suggestion is to use a variety of software programs to see if there are discrepancies for your particular date.
Note that it is typically the time zone atlas issue that produces different results in astrology software. Differences that amount to minutes rather than full degrees (example, one software shows your Ascendant as 3 Aries 22 and another shows it as 3 Aries 15) have to do with the fact that a city spans over a range of latitude-longitude coordinates, and some databases use the city center coordinates while others might use the City Hall address (or equivalent). Neither is more accurate than the other. These differences are entirely negligible–equivalent to a fraction of a minute in birth time which is rarely recorded. Even if we were to use the precise hospital or birthing place coordinates, we’re working with birth times that are usually rounded to the minute if we’re lucky.
We all wonder about these discrepancies when first studying astrology, but as you work with more and more charts, you recognize the fruitlessness of trying to get the minutes of your degree positions precise. Getting the degree side right is possible in most cases.
In fact, the more you work with charts and recognize the imprecision of birth times in general, the many different house system options that different astrologers use, most of which successfully, the multiple charting options, techniques, and methods that each have their merit…you get the idea…the more you focus on those things that truly work for you and your client and recognize the need to keep an open mind.
In case you don’t already know, we help with this: you can write to Kristen at [email protected] with your full birth data and request your Ascendant because it’s the most sensitive point to birth time/time zones. Getting a human to look into things can be helpful!
Cafe Astrology's Yearly Horoscopes
Birth chart virgo
The Sixth House of Health
The Sixth House corresponds with health, wellness, and daily routines, including odd jobs. Where the body you're born with exists in the First House, the choices made over a lifetime create the body found in your Sixth House. Naturally, our environment and life choices affect our health, such as self-care, having a good work-life balance, and whether you spend enough (or too much!) time in the sun, so let this house remind you to pay attention to your physical and mental well-being. Those with natal planets in this zone are often fueled by organization and structure and tend to focus on time and calendar management. Planets transiting the Sixth House help us form habits and redefine our schedules. This House corresponds with Virgo energy.
The Seventh House of Partnership
The Seventh House (the Descendent) sits directly across from the First House Ascendant and represents life-changing partnerships. Up until now, all the Houses have explored an individual's immediate world: their money, home, and friends. In the Seventh House, however, the concept of perspective is introduced. Simply put, the Seventh House symbolizes your "cosmic plus one," and yes, that refers to romantic partners, as well as other important relationships in your life. Those with natal planets in the Seventh House tend to be very focused on relationships, gravitating towards partnership in all areas of life. Planets moving through the Seventh House help us close deals, securing our bonds by signing contracts, and making things official. This House corresponds with Libra energy.
The Eighth House of Sex, Death, and Transformation
What do sex, death, and transformation have to do with one another? Well, they're all animalistic instincts. Those with natal planets in the Eighth House are often attracted to supernatural or occult topics, have intense romances, and will likely go through several fabulous makeovers within their lifetime. The Eighth House reminds us that it's okay to give in to our desires, we're going to die one day after all, but to always be adaptable and ready to let go of the past to make room for the present and future. Planets transiting this area help us understand the underbelly of any situation and serve as a reminder of life’s complexities. This House corresponds with Scorpio energy.
The Ninth House of Philosophy
Travel, philosophy, and higher education all define the ninth house. In medieval astrology, this region was linked to places and people outside of your village. Now, we interpret this area as both literal and intellectual exploration. Those born with natal planets in the Ninth House are extremely curious and inquisitive, with deep-rooted wanderlust. When planets move across the Ninth House we often begin studying a new topic, move to a foreign location, or adopt a completely different perspective. The Ninth House encourages you to keep an open mind and be willing to learn new things as your world changes and expands. This House corresponds with Sagittarius energy.
The Tenth House of Social Status
The Tenth House, located at the very top of the birth chart, is the apex of your unique story, and yes, is basically the House of popularity. The Tenth House also governs public image, professional aspirations, and career achievements. Natal planets in the Tenth House reveal an ambitious individual, and changes in the profession often occur when planets transit this zone. This House corresponds with Capricorn energy.
The Eleventh House of Friendship
As the houses begin their descent, the Eleventh House helps us remember the purpose of our hard work, and with who we share the joy of our accomplishments. The Eleventh House is linked to humanitarian pursuits, as well as our personal network. This covers our dear friends and support system who help keep us moving forward. Technology and innovation also exist within this zone, so those born with planets in the Eleventh House are often defined by their revolutionary ideas. Transiting planets through this domain help us broaden our reach as we define our role within society. This House corresponds with Aquarius energy.
The Twelfth House of the Unconscious
In the sky, the Twelfth House exists just beneath the horizon: It's quite literally the darkness before dawn. Likewise, the Twelfth House is considered the "unseen realm," and governs all things that exist without physical forms, like dreams, secrets, and emotions. Those born with planets in the Twelfth House are often highly intuitive, perhaps even psychic. We attract karmic people into our lives when planets transit the Twelfth House, but during this time, we must also remember that not all relationships are meant to last. This House corresponds with Pisces energy.

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.

Birth Chart Interpretations
Here you will discover the individual meaning of each planet in each zodiac sign, and in each House. The birth chart interpretations found here are "general interpretations" because you will find that, as you become more comfortable with astrology, you can add your own insight to these meanings. The interpretations here are meant as a general guide, to usher you into deeper astrological exploration and self-discovery.
Before you begin here, it is strongly recommended that you read the Free Astrology Lessons. At the very least, please read "How to Read Your Own Birth Chart" first. Interpreting a birth chart involves taking many things into account, merging them into a unified description. By reading the suggested pages, you will avoid making the mistake of isolating one point in the chart and wrongfully stereotyping. Remember, you must synthesize all the planets' positions into a blended description. Do not take only one of the following birth chart interpretations without regarding the rest of the birth chart. A good rule of thumb: to every interpretation that you read below, add this phrase, "...depending on the rest of the chart."
Interpretations Credits: Except on pages where otherwise credited, natal interpretations are written by Astrology Library. See each interpretation page for individual credit.
