The constellation of Virgo is associated with Demeter and her daughter Persephone. Persephone was abducted by Hades, god of the underworld, who wanted her as his bride. Demeter, goddess of abundance and the harvest, ask Zeus to order Hades to return her daughter. Zeus refused. Angered, Demeter plunged the earth into famine. No crops, no spring, no summer, no abundance. Zeus finally intervened and brokered a deal: Persephone would be on earth half the year with Demeter, but had to return to Hades the other half of the year. The deal was accepted by everyone. However, Demeter refused to provide crops while Persephone was in the underworld. To ancient Greeks, this explained why we had spring, summer, fall and winter. Some say the constellation was placed in the heavens to remind mankind why we have the seasons.
The Zodiac sign of Virgo spans the period from August 23rd to September 22nd. Those born under this sign are known as Virgos. This sign's glyph is an M combined with two crossed lines which represent the crossed legs of a virgin. Since the sun transits this constellation during the transition of seasons (summer to autumn in the northern hemisphere), it is classified as one of the four mutable signs.
The other mutable signs are Gemini (May 21st to June 20th, spring to summer transition), Sagittarius (November 22nd to December 21st, autumn to winter transition, ) and Pisces (February 20th to March 20th, winter to spring transition). Those born under mutable signs tend to adapt well to change, and can easily release past situations in preparation for future plans.
Virgos are ruled by the planet, Mercury, which is associated with dexterity, study, communication, and idea exchanges. Their personality traits include being conscientious, reserved, analytical, tidy, intelligent, helpful, methodical, discriminating, hard-working, thorough, expressive, and caring. Among their challenging traits are aloofness, distrust, shyness, cynicism, pessimism, critical, quarrelsome, and narrow-mindedness. Since this sign is considered feminine, inward reflection and introversion are among the other traits possessed by Virgos.
Virgos are primarily compatible with the other earth signs, Taurus (April 20th to May 20th) and Capricorn (December 22nd to January 20th). They are also compatible with those born under water signs. They include Cancer (June 22nd to July 21st), Scorpio (October 24th to November 21st) and Pisces (February 20th to March 20th). Since Sagittarius is also a mutable sign, Sagittarians are considered to be semi-compatible with Virgos.
Virgos are associated with the metal, mercury. Their lucky numbers include 50, 41, 32, 23, 14, 5, and 3. Virgos' lucky day is Wednesday, and their lucky dates are the 5th, 14th, and 23rd. Their birthstone is sapphire, and lucky colors are mushroom, yellow, gray, white, and orange. Their lucky plants include the morning glory and pansy, cat's ear, and crosswort, and all nut-bearing trees. Among their lucky talismans are the serpent, bamboo, tau (the 19th letter of the Greek alphabet), key, and owl.
The body parts connected to Virgos include the nervous system and intestines. They are susceptible to ulcers, which may be linked to their tendency to become stressed and obsessed. However, they are very skilled at managing situations and bringing order to chaos.
Many notable people are Virgos. They include Jerry Seinfeld, Greta Garbo, Confucius, Jerry Bruckheimer, Agatha Christie, David Copperfield, Hugh Grant, James Coburn, Cameron Diaz, Moby, Tommy Lee Jones, Adriana Karembeu, Ryan Phillippe, Keanu Reeves, Pink, Mother Theresa, Elvis Costello, Charlie Sheen, Claudia Schiffer, Shania Twain, and Oliver Stone.
