Astrology: Virgo Zodiac Sign Dates & Traits

Continuing our Astrology Series with our resident Astrologer, Scarlett Stars takes a look into the dates and traits of the Virgo Zodiac Sign, as well as Virgo vintage style icons.

Virgo Zodiac Sign Explained

The latin word Virgo simply translates as Virgin, but by no means do those born under the sign of Virgo adhere to a certain level of primness, nor do they insist on wearing a chastity belt. Think of the symbol of the virgin as representing a historic ideal when virginity was seen as an exalted state of purity. Virgo is about idealism, abiding by the rules and living by the correctness of the state. As an earth sign, Virgo is firmly rooted to the material realm.

Worker Bees

With knowledge as their currency; Virgos can decipher the most incoherent of details and neatly categorise them, they'll probably add near colour codes too. Elsa Schiaparelli, peer and arch rival of Coco Chanel was a master in the couture world. Crafty and conscientious, her hyper-awareness of the tiniest of details saw the meticulous nature of Virgo coming to life. With an inherent sense of duty, and the ability to paint with the finest of brushes; just as Elsa, Virgo is well suited to careers that require skill.

The Devils in the detail

Virgo's radar for picking up flaws can see them coming across as nit-pickers at times. On a plus their insatiable need for perfection means if there is devil in the detail Virgo will spy it out. Committed and persistent, Virgos detest laziness. Vocal Virgo has never been one for holding back ob their opinions and these worker beed will sound out any slackers if they need to. Governed by Mercury the planet of the messenger; Virgos are blessed with communication skills, with their hearts in helpful places they make excellent advise givers and sounding boards.

Virgo Vintage Style Icon: Greta Garbo - 18th September

Virgo can be reserved; to those born under the sign of the virgin the idea of celebrity can be an alien concept. These earthly beings are not likely to barge their way into the limelight, humble Virgo is happy to sit in the back seat.
