The Sun in Virgo

The Sun in Virgo highlights the intrinsic beauty of the Virgin.  While not always an actual virgin, Virgos come across as pure and innocent.  You never stray far from the core values you grew up believing in.

Your sign in the sixth in the Zodiac. Your Zodiac birthstone is the Sapphire.  Your element is Earth and Mercury is your Ruling planet.

The Sun in Virgo

In Numerology, 6 represents a feminine energy of a teacher, preacher, or healer.  Virgos are giving, by nature.  Be careful not to overextend yourself for the sake of others.

When you become overwhelmed or feel neglected, it is easy to become jealous.  Anxiety and doubt may plague you.  Just know that you are the ingenue.

You are easy prey for those that take advantage of your kindness, as a weakness.  Do not be discouraged by the existence of these people in your life.  Do educate yourself on how to be more aware of them.  Surround yourself with people who have your best interest at heart.

Many misinterpret your star sign to mean that you are not interested in lovemaking or sensuality.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  You just do not express it the same way as other signs, which is totally healthy and beautiful.

You will often be and feel misunderstood, Virgo.  Because you have the innocent sparkle in your eyes, many people will think you are easy to fool.  You may be lacking in street smarts.

What you lack in cynicism you make up in trust of others.  As the Virgin, you appear to be vulnerable to attacks on your emotions.  You have strengths, but one of your weaknesses is being a people-pleaser.

You must make sure you are pleased with yourself.  In order to mature in a healthy fashion, you must be able to accept and love yourself, first.  Once you do, you will have love to share with others.

Your fulfillment will come when you find a partner who treasures your optimistic outlook on other people.  No matter who which Zodiac sign you choose to be with, try to find someone who can protect you from your built-in blind spots.

A person who recognizes your openness, and reciprocates it, without taking advantage of you, is going to make a great partner.  Your partner does not have to share your religious beliefs or favorite music genre—as long as they respect your choices, you will be happy together.  For the sake of compromise, be ready to do what they want to do sometimes—even when, if the tables were turned—they would give you a much-desired rain check.

The Sun in Virgo Women

While Virgos are characterized by historically female traits, it is important to respect their strength.  Virgos are not weak.  On the contrary, they are some of the most empathetic and helpful people to have around.

The Sun in Virgo women shines through the light in their eyes and smiles.  These women light up rooms.  You can make anyone feel special.  People love that you make such an impact on them, whether family, friends or other fans.

The most iconic Virgo woman around today is the one and only Beyoncé Knowles.  If Beyoncé cannot convince you Virgos can be powerful lovemaking symbols and maternal figures, simultaneously, then no one will! She has been quoted saying she is a total Virgo.

She once said, “When I do something, I do it 100 percent.  I have high expectations of myself and expect the exact same thing of everyone around me.  I’ve always been that way.  I am all or nothing.”

Virgos love control because it helps them stay true to their vision.  This is a core characteristic of the Virgin.  Virgo women fall across the spectrum of seductiveness and desire for commitment.

Mother Teresa (b. August 26, 1910) was a famous Virgo nun.  She founded Missionaries of Charity.  She was a devoted, lifelong servant of the church.

Another famous Virgo was the so-called “Virgin Queen”, Elizabeth I, of England (b. September 7, 1533).  She probably had relationships and relations.  She was called the Virgin because she never married.  This both added to her sense of virginity and actually helped her not to lose her power to any other empire or their King.

Other famous Virgo women include Amy Poehler, Taraji P. Henson, Salma Hayek, Emmy Rossum, and Sophia Loren.  These women are amazing examples of the leading lady—one you can root for and cry for.  These are women that most other women relate to very easily.

The Sun in Virgo Men

The Sun in Virgo Men illuminates the Virgins most caring and compassionate characteristics.  Virgo men are not weak or feminine.  They are thinkers.  They take considerate actions to make life better for those around them.

One famous example of this type of Virgo man is Bernie Sanders (b. September 8, 1941).  Bernie is well-loved by many.  He is best known for his campaign for President in 2016.  While he was beaten out by a woman, many felt that he may have been an adequate candidate from either side.

Bernie focused on taking care of marginalized populations.  He looked to reform systems in America that were not working.  He is an intellectual.  He is a nurturer.

Idris Elba (b. September 6, 1972) is a famous actor and Virgo.  No one would make this mistake of calling this handsome man feminine.  If they did, though, you get the feeling he would take it as a compliment.  Many Virgo men have very high respect for women.

The Sun and Virgo in Love

The Sun in Virgo in Love shines on your best qualities.  In any close relationship, you hold up your end.  You are reliable and need a reliable partner.  You will also benefit from a partner who wants to keep you safe out of harm’s way.

Your best love matches are Capricorn, Cancer, and Taurus.  Capricorn and Virgo are not much alike.  This different type of thinking will actually make you a stronger team.  You balance out each other’s more stringent qualities.

A Cancer would be a great match for you.  They are painstaking homemakers.  They will adore your attention to detail.  They want to feel safe and loved, and Virgos are great at calming their Crab partners.

A Taurus may energize you more than the Capricorn or Cancer.  They will motivate you to start a new project.  Be aware though, they might not keep that enthusiasm all the way until said project is completed.  A Virgo may feel like being with a Taurus is too taxing, depending on how considerate their Bull is.

The worst love matches for Virgo include Aries, Gemini, and Libra.  The Aries is too aggressive for the Virgin.  The Gemini is too indecisive, and the Libra just seems like too much work to stay connected with.

All these signs, with compromise, could end up working.  However, there will be many bumps in the road.  Another Virgo or Pisces might also be the right match for the perfectionist Virgin.

Virgos prefer to fall in love with someone for who they are and how they think.  Although particular, and known to be perfectionists, Virgos are not shallow.  If you can make a Virgo laugh and hold an intelligent conversation, you are doing very well for yourself.

Since you tend to be shy and keep your personal business to yourself, you would benefit from a more outgoing partner.  Look for someone who can hold the spotlight, without stealing it from others.  Look for someone who is happy as the center of attention.  They must also know when to let you take the floor.

As the name might suggest, as the Virgin, you do not usually care to be overtly seductive.  You are more reserved and stoic in you love language.  You prefer actions over words.

Guard your heart against casual relationships.  One-night stands and open relationships are a slippery slope into jealousy for most Virgos.  You crave security.  You deserve stability.

The Dates for the Sun in Virgo

The Sun in Virgo will allow you to see deeper than you have before.  Explore your own needs—in terms of what you still need to learn about yourself.  Then, you can focus on finding love and fulfillment in other areas of your life, as well.

July 25th will bring Mercury into Virgo, after your star sign being relatively unbothered so far in 2017.  Mercury has the power to affect the emotions of every Zodiac sign.  Remember, your Ruling planet is Mercury.  You may feel its effect more than others.

The Sun enters Virgo on August 22nd.  The Sun in Virgo is between Mercury and Mars.  Prepare yourself for an influx of love and energy in your life.  The Sun will reenergize your relationships.

On September 5th and 9th, Mars and Mercury will influence you, respectively.  Again, the beginning of your year was smooth sailing.  Now, you are in the rapids.  Do not stop paddling.

You will find that this period is hectic, but not necessarily bad.  On September 19th, Venus will enter Virgo.  This planet is associated with love, so know that by this time you are in good shape.  If not already in the relationship you desire, at least you know what it is you are looking for now.

Using the following Numerology Chart, you can count on the dates listed below to be included in Lucky Days, or Months, of the Year:

  • 1:         A         J          S
  • 2:         B         K         T
  • 3:         C         L         U
  • 4:         D         M        V        
  • 5:         E         N         W       
  • 6:         F          O         X        
  • 7:         G         P          Y
  • 8:         H         Q         Z         
  • 9:         I           R
  • Virgo = 8
  • Virgo + Sun = 8
  • Virgo + Love = 8

Your Star sign number, Sun number, and Love number are all 8.  In Numerology, the 8 represents Karmic principles.  The number 8 also looks like a sideways infinity symbol.

Like two halves of the brain, the two halves of the 8 represent complementary concepts.  8 represents well-distributed beauty.  8 represents reflection through appreciating differences.

Where many people would see a world of difference – you can see the harmonious duality.  You can appreciate the church and the government.  You can hold personal beliefs that differ vastly from those you love, without it causing an issue.  Or, at least, not one you care enough about to risk the relationship over.

Final Thoughts

Virgo, you have so many loveable qualities.  So many people love you and your work and probably tell you so all the time.  Do not make the mistake of forgetting to return the favor.

While you are a kind and gentle spirit, you are still capable of hurting others.  You are willing to sacrifice yourself for the sake of others’ comfort.  Make sure the other person is worth it.  Often, they are not.

You try to always be respectful.  Your careful weighing of others means that when you do respect someone they have earned it.  A Libra is always sure to test people, and ideas, to make sure they are worthy of being held onto.

You can tend to seem over-critical of those around you, even if you would hold yourself to the same standard.  This may frighten away potential love interests or fracture current relationships.

Find ways to give constructive criticism.  When non-essential to the other person or a group effort, be conscious of the impact your observation may have.  Telling someone there is toilet paper stuck to the bottom of their shoe would be very thoughtful of you.  Telling someone that you saw their exact shoes on a prostitute last week is not the quickest way to make a new friend—even if you are telling them the truth.

You are not one to casually hurt feelings.  However, your cold and unforgiving approach to honesty may be too much for some people.  You may get called a Diva—but, hey, so does Beyoncé.  You are in great company.
