24 August – 23 September
Virgo is the sign of the virgin. Like the virgins of ancient times, who had no children with which to claim respect in the eyes of their people, Virgos are shy, and can even be a bit withdrawn. The image of the virgin is that of a young girl. Virgos have a sense of youth about their minds, well into old age. They also have the eyes of a child, seeing things as if new long after others have lost interest. Virgos tend to be intelligent. They have a great sense of organization, and can spot details that others miss. Although Virgos might not make the best leaders at times, their advice and counsel is just the kind that a wise leader needs. So, unless they choose to express themselves in their families, Virgos can rise quite high in this world.
