Wound a little tighter than most. They’ve had a to-do list since they could write. They were born with a moral code must stricter than yours. It has been hard for them to reconcile the fact that life does not account for their moral code. It has been hard to reconcile that life cannot be stored in boxes from Muji. 

Pure. Tidy. Practical.

Helpful. Logical. Type-A.

Intellectual. Humble.  

If you love a Virgo, you must value them for their desire for perfection. Perfection of their character. Perfection of their home. Perfection of their relationships. Don’t mistake their critical nature for judgment, they are simply trying to make things better in this chaotic world.


The 3 Decanates of Virgin

Say what? Yes, the exact day of the month does effect what kind of Virgo you are.

Each Sun Sign is broken up into 3 Decanates, that each ecompass 10 degrees (or 10 days) of the 30 in that zodiac.

Each decanate gives a unique spin on the Sun Sign. 

The 1st Decanate | August 23—September 1

This is a highly intellectual Virgo. You use your mind to navigate all areas of your life, even the personal aspects. You are incredibly rational, making it hard to understand the irrational aspects of human nature.



Your ruler and your subruler are both Mercury, The Ruler of Communication. You have a nervous energy, and may find yourself losing sleep over details and deadlines and the like. 

The trick will be learning how to understand that not everyone is as practical and logical as you are. Your high standards for yourself are often placed on others, but remember to allow others to navigate life in the way that works best for them, not you.

The 2nd Decanate | September 2—12

This is a Virgo that can perform. Under pressure. Under scrutiny. You will not mess up the details when under a microscope. You don't crumble, you thrive.



Your subruler is Saturn, the Great Teacher. Think of this as a Virgo with a hint of Capricorn. You love to tackle the next project. The idea of being worked to the bone excites you. You demand persistence and perfection from yourself.

The trick will be learning how to be gentle with yourself under this pressure. Life is more than a series of victories.

The 3rd Decanate | September 13—22

This is a Virgo that can win over any room. Your natural Virgo-like humble nature combined with a calming energy makes you virtually impossible to dislike. Or ignore! 



This also makes you more drawn towards creative pursuits than the average Virgo. Art, music, poetry speak to you on a level that is hard to replace with facts and figures.

The trick will be learning when to not seek out others approval. There are times where listening to yourself, and trusting yourself, is all that matters. Winning over a room is a great skill, but is not always necessary to move forward on a personal level.
