VIRGO 08/23-09/22

Fixed Star - Spica, Alpha Virgo is a spectroscopic binary star and rotating ellipsoidal variable; a system whose two stars are so close together they are egg-shaped rather than spherical, and can only be separated by their spectra. The primary is a variable blue giant. The name is derived from the Latin ‘spīca virginis’ - "the virgin's ear of wheat grain". Other traditional name is Arabic ‘Al-simāk al-ʼAʽzal’ – “gleaner”.

Star-ruler of the house - MERCURY

Element - EARTH

Talisman Plant - Brunfelsia grandiflora (Yesterday-Today-Tomorrow)

Virgo is the sixth astrological sign in the Zodiac. Under the tropical zodiac, the Sun transits this area, on average, between August 23 and September 22. It is represented as a young maiden carrying a sheaf of wheat. She is variously identified as a fertility goddess (the Babylonian and Assyrian Ishtar) or the harvest maiden (the Greek Persephone). 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. She became the constellation Virgo. 

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 (mean "bread") and where after this sign has been connected with the Virgin Mary.
Virgo is the most disciplined sign of the zodiac, the most responsible, even somewhat boring. She likes put in order everything around and act in accordance with the instructions (if the instructions suddenly are absent, such will be written by herself).

She likes flowers. But she will grow them only if:
a) the task is set: to decorate the house or courtyard;
b) there is a place in her personal organizer to write: "watering, pruning, feeding, etc. - what else according to the instructions?” And real time to do it. In all other cases, Virgo behave toward plants according to the residual principle, optimistically reasoning: "They want to live - they will survive."
Such optimism of Virgo is directly related to the energy of her fixed star Spica - indeed, why worry, there are many grains in her spike of wheat, if these do not survive, others will be sown. Some will take root. At the same time, Mercury, the ruler of Virgo's house, makes her extremely practical, and Virgo will not spend any extra money to buy some floral exotic, knowing her own negligence.

Virgo likes plants with light blue, blue-violet, light purple flowers, the aroma of which should not be too strong, as well as large single plants with numerous small leaflets - such Ficus natalensis. It is very good if there is a place in the Virgin's kitchen for medicinal plants that improve digestion, calm nerves and soften the somewhat harsh nature of Virgo, for example, Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), and Mint (Mentha sp). Let them grow in pots - maybe by making tea or coffee in the morning, Virgo will not forget to splash water in their pots

Cat Zodiac: Virgo Cats 08/22-09/23

Introducing the Virgo Cat: Your Solution to Disorganization

Are you someone who occasionally finds themselves in a state of disarray, struggling to maintain a tidy living space and manage your time effectively? Do you often find yourself behind schedule, struggling to fulfill your plans punctually? If this sounds familiar, let the Virgo Cat lend a helping paw to restore order and rhythm to your life.
The Virgo Cats are more than just a pet; it's a dedicated companion that excels at instilling structure and cleanliness. Driven by their innate intelligence and commitment, these feline perfectionists possess an unwavering loyalty that sets them apart. With a natural inclination for tidiness, Virgo Cats have a knack for swiftly and efficiently organizing your surroundings. They are even known to create controlled messes, just to have the satisfaction of tidying up alongside you.
The Virgo Cat's dedication to order extends beyond physical spaces. They are attuned to the needs of your indoor plants, ensuring timely watering and nurturing. Wilted leaves or neglected blooms won't go unnoticed – the Virgo Cat takes proactive measures, from persistent meowing to even knocking over pots if necessary.
Eventually, you will realise that they want to accompany you to the office to be your office-mate. This is why Virgo cats spread themselves over your laptop or sit deliberately in front of the screen – it is not because they need your attention, but because they (and you!) need to get to work.
To keep your Virgo Cat content, it's crucial to provide them with mental stimulation. Assigning tasks or puzzles for them to tackle will keep their sharp minds engaged and prevent any signs of restlessness. Ignoring their need for mental engagement can lead to any troubles, as a bored Virgo Cat is quick to find creative outlets for their energy.
Beyond their organizational skills, Virgo Cats are keen observers. Even when they appear to be in a deep slumber, they're well-aware of their surroundings. Their problem-solving abilities are impressive, and they can often find solutions to challenges that come their way.
However, it's important to approach them with sensitivity, as Virgo Cats have delicate feelings. Their self-assured nature might give them an air of superiority, especially among their feline peers. Treating them with care and respect enhances your connection with these remarkable companions.
Virgo Cats are quite indifferent to plants. They are not interested in bright and fragrant flowering plants; they prefer the freshness of greens. Interestingly, Virgo Cats display distinct preferences when it comes to plants. Male cats tend to gravitate towards outdoor greenery like lemongrass, mint and balm where the scents relax their internal self-control and awaken their hunting instincts. On the other hand, female cats enjoy engaging with indoor kitchen herbs, often engaging in gentle interactions with potted greens.
In essence, welcoming a Virgo Cat into your life means inviting a furry friend that not only brings a sense of structure and efficiency but also a delightful array of characteristics that make them truly exceptional companions.
