According to Hesiod, Virgo (also called Astraes) was the daughter of Jupiter and Themsis, and was the goddess of Justice. When the Golden Age ended, and men defied her rule, she returned to the sky in disgust.
Belonging to the mutable group and the earth element Virgos are generally ordered and good at organizing their life and yours! Ruled by the planet Mercury (until Vulcan is re-discovered!) Like the original meaning of virgin, you are a very self-perfecting person. You can always sense quickly when something is wrong and there is no rest for anyone until order has been restored. You may be truly shy and modest, hiding your deep sensuality behind a rather cool and critical exterior. Virgo is the sign of abundance, but you have always to worked hard to get it. You are a good organizer with not just talking about it but actually getting it done.
Analytical Virgo, as the
sixth sign of the zodiac, you represent purity, perfection, and
practicality. Virgos put things in order to unify the world. Mercury, the planet
of mental and intellectual principles, and ruler of Virgo, makes you a
methodical and organized worker who brings an analytical, systematic approach to
all facets of life. You project a serious image overall, one only strengthened
by your problem-solving skills and fastidious refinement.

Virgo Rising has the ability
to adapt to changing circumstances and different people. Your willingness to
adapt however, is invariably accompanied by a word or two of complaint. Nowhere
is the critical facility associated with Virgo more observable than when this
sign rules the Ascendant.
If your child is born in
Virgo, he or she is cautious, discreet, and not only contemplative but
industrious. Virgos will enjoy the things money can buy and will gladly work for
them. The Virgo child is self assured but not easily content with the
commonplace. He or she will learn quickly but may worry at times. Virgos will be
sensitive to their surroundings and have a thirst for knowledge. They will be
very careful of details and can view things with a critical eye. The Virgo child
is methodical and spends little time speculating on the unknown.
Virgo can succeed in life as
an agent or intermediary for a large company, or can be a trusted executive
assistant for a public or political figure. He or she excels in general
commercial ventures, imports and exports, and matters connected with the earth
and its products. Virgo persons generally rise in life through their own merits.
Writing, bookkeeping, record keeping, research, and the instruction of others
lure this person.
Need a quick fix? Call a
Virgo. Those born under this Sign simply love to analyze and bat things around
and are bound to come up with some answers. The mental, smart Virgo is a talker
and a helper and likes to facilitate solutions as a service to others. Even so,
Virgos crave independence and a space of their own, so don't expect all their
cards to be laid on the table -- some things are best kept private. Members of
this Earth Sign are forever realistic and will set practical, achievable goals
for themselves and the others on their team. Virgos are task-oriented and highly
organized, a very loyal colleague and often the conscience of their group. They
will get things done but are often reluctant to take the credit! The Virgo's
perfectionism can often lead to nervousness and ill health, so a bit of balance,
the yin with the yang, is a lesson well learned.

A typical Virgo employee (male or female):
The workplace of a typical Virgo man or woman:
Virgo, a feminine sign, is
fastidious, practical and realistic rather than romantic. Flexible Virgo, a
mutable sign, readily adapts to change. Instinctively responsive to the needs of
others, you readily adapt to different people and changing circumstances by
finding ways to make yourself useful. When the spotlight is not aimed directly
at you, but on a product or a service you offer, you make an excellent
salesperson, or effective negotiator and can be a good manager, though you
should avoid being too critical of those who cannot match your high personal
Virgo and Sex
When a typical Virgo makes
love it is a pure-minded, natural, healthy act. Virgo only enjoys sex when it is
with someone who has gained Virgo's confidence. Celibacy, for short or long
periods, is not usually difficult for Virgo. In general, Virgoan's are looking
for a spouse, not a one-night stand or an affair. A Virgo who has not had his or
her fragile sense of self undermined in youth will enjoy sex. The bedside
library may include informative books on sex, because Virgos like to understand
the finer details. Virgo (male or female) tends to seduce with finesse, charm,
and subtlety. The fact that typical Virgoan instincts are chaste does not mean
that Virgos are virgins. The Virgin of astrology is a symbol of self-
improvement and fertility.
The person who contemplates
becoming the marriage or business partner of a typical Virgo must realize that
Virgo will regard the union as permanent, although the finer details can be
flexible. Given this, the person who partners Virgo can expect absolute loyalty.
Virgos make strong commitments because they combine duty with devotion. The
Virgo will approach a proposal with great caution and will analyze the pros and
cons throughly before getting involved. This is an excellent approach to any
long-term partnership but may sound rather cold and clinical in the case of a
He will be thoughtful,
considerate, and honest. He will remember dates, anniversaries, and agreements.
He can be a wizard when it comes to the sensible balancing of the budget. He
will love, honor, and criticize, but will not expect to be obeyed, waited on, or
be dazzled by sexy make-up and clothes. However, he will want cleanliness and a
lot of warmth and sincere respect.
She is shy but as tough as
nails when the need arises. In business, she will be cool, intelligent, and
fully commited. Slow to love, Virgo woman is not interested in anything less
than true love. When it happens, she will love intensely. She will only break a
partnership if there has been hypocrisy. She is the most practical romantic in
Pisces is the complementary
opposite sign to Virgo. From Pisces, Virgo can learn to get a little and float
with the tide, giving imagination a chance to develop. In this way, Virgo can
begin to accept human imperfections, especially his or her own.
In general, Virgo likes a friend who is tidy, clean, and intelligent with a broad range of interests. They prefer people who are not given to big shows of emotion and are attracted to those who offer a sense of peace and serenity. Virgos love any pageantry that gives them an outlet for their tightly controlled emotions. Hence they are delightful companions at these events Virgos are discriminating and have a fine artistic taste and a wealth of information on many subjects. They are not coarse and do not waste money. Virgos are loyal to their friends and will be extremely kind, considerate, and helpful. However, Virgos are nervous worriers, and a friend who in some way feeds the worries will reduce Virgo to a nervous heap. Virgos can be cold and critical, so a friend who softens the barbed remarks with caring laughter will bring out the Virgo wit. Most Virgos find it almost impossible to admit they are occasionally wrong.
Virgos are most compatible with Taurus and Capricorn.
Prince Harry is the second son of
Britain's Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana, and the grandson of Queen
Elizabeth II. (He is commonly called by his nickname of Harry, though his birth
name is Henry.) The Prince is third in line to the throne, after his father and
his older brother Prince William. Like William, Harry attended Wetherby and
Ludgrove schools; in September of 1998 he entered Eton College. He followed
family tradition by entering the Sandhurst military academy in 2005; he
graduated in April 2006, becoming a second lieutenant in the British Army's
Household Cavalry. The Army announced in February of 2007 that Harry would be
deployed to Iraq with his unit for a six-month tour of duty.
The Princess Akishino, known widely
as Princess Kiko, is the wife of Prince Akishino of the royal family of Japan.
Her husband is the second son of Emperor Akihito and the brother of Crown Prince
Naruhito. Kiko met Prince Akishino (then known as Prince Fumihito) while both
were students at Gakushuin University. They were married on 29 June 1990. They
have three children: Princess Mako (b. 23 October 1991), Princess Kako (b. 29
December 1994) and Prince Hisahito (b. 6 September 2006). Hisahito's birth held
special significance in Japan, since the law requires male succession and
neither Kiko nor her sister-in-law, Princess Masako, had previously borne a male
heir. Princess Kiko was nearly 40 years old when her son was born. Hisahito is
third in line to the Chrysanthemum Throne, after his uncle Crown Prince Naruhito
and his father Prince Akishino.
Lance Armstrong won the prestigious
Tour de France an unprecedented seven straight times, from 1999-2005.
Armstrong's string broke the previous Tour de France record of five victories,
held by Miguel Indurain (1991-95) and three others. Armstrong is equally famous
for surviving cancer. He was a top amateur cyclist until after the 1992
Barcelona Olympics, when he began a successful pro career. In 1996 Armstrong
discovered that he had testicular cancer, which had spread to his brain and
lungs. After surgery and heavy chemotherapy, Armstrong returned to cycling in
1997. Two years later he won his first Tour de France, as the lead rider of the
U.S. Postal Service team, and then repeated the victory the next five years in a
row. In 2005 he announced that he would retire from competitive racing after the
Tour de France, then won the Tour for a seventh and final time. Armstrong is the
author of the memoirs It's Not About the Bike (2000) and Every Second Counts
Mother Teresa grew famous for humbly ministering to lepers, the homeless and the poorest of the poor in the slums of Calcutta. In 1928 Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu joined the Sisters of Our Lady of Lareto, a Catholic order that did charity work in India. She took the name Sister Teresa and for 17 years taught school in the country. In 1950 she founded the Missionaries of Charity, a new order devoted to helping the sick and poor; the order grew to include branches in more than 100 cities around the world, and Mother Teresa became a worldwide symbol of charity, meeting with Princess Diana and many other public figures. In 1979 Mother Teresa was awarded the Nobel Prize for Peace, and in 1985 she was awarded the Medal of Freedom from the United States.
Claudia Schiffer was the best-known blonde model in the world for a time in the
1990s. Like Anna Nicole Smith, Schiffer got her first American exposure as a Big
Blonde in glossy print ads for Guess Jeans. Unlike Smith, Schiffer parlayed her
appearances into a career as a top print model. Her classic German looks and
classic German business savvy made her an international star, and in 2006
Schiffer began as the public face of a national economic campaign called Germany
-- Land of Ideas.
One of the old guard of the Chinese Communist Party, Deng Xiaoping became the party's Secretary General in 1954, but was purged by Chairman Mao in 1966 for his strong objections to the excesses of the Great Leap Forward. By 1974 Deng had been "rehabilitated" and returned to power. After Mao's death, Deng was the de facto leader of China until he finally expired in 1997. He was succeeded by his protege Jiang Zemin.
Considered one of the world's greatest novelists, Leo Nikolaevich Tolstoy is
famous especially for the 19th century classics War and Peace (1865-69) and Anna
Karenina (1877-78). Although he was born into nobility, Tolstoy spent much of
his life as a champion of Russia's peasant class, notably in the field of
education. He began his literary career in the 1850s, publishing a trilogy about
his own life: Childhood (Detstvo, 1852), Boyhood ( Otrochestvo, 1854) and Youth
(Yunost', 1857). Tolstoy served in the Russian army during the Crimean War, and
his book Sevastopol Sketches (Sevastopol'skie Rasskazy, 1855-56) was
well-received in literary circles and praised for its realistic depiction of
war. After travelling throughout Europe, Tolstoy returned to the family estate
and devoted himself to raising a family and writing his great psychological
novels War and Peace and Anna Karenina. From the 1880s until his death, he
devoted himself to more spiritual and philosophical matters, writing several
essays on ethics and morals and coming to terms with his own Christian
conversion (described in 1879's Confessions). His other works include the
novella The Death of Ivan Ilyich (1884) and the novel Resurrection (1899-1900).
