Were you born on September 22? If so, then according to Western astrology, your zodiac sign is Virgo, the sign of the Virgin. This means that when you were born, the Sun was in the stars that make up the constellation known as Virgo. Let's explore the basics of your horoscope and discover more about your unique characteristics.

Virgo Overview

Virgo is known as "kanya" in Sanskrit, which means "virgin." Each sign of the zodiac is characterized by certain basic traits. Here is an overview of the Virgo sign:

  • Sign of the Virgin: Virgo natives are intelligent and resourceful. They may experience conflicting feelings and desires in life.
  • Ruled by Mercury: Mercury is the planet of thought, the nervous system, communication, and literature. Mercurial individuals are hard to predict and have minds that move quickly.
  • An earth sign: Those with a Virgo moon are dexterous, thoughtful, and practical.
  • A dual sign: Persons born under this sign are adaptable and multi-talented.
  • A feminine sign: This makes the native receptive, sensitive, and empathetic.
  • Virgo's preferred gemstone is emerald: Virgos can also benefit from green tourmaline and peridot.

Traits of the Sun in Virgo

In Western Astrology, a person's zodiac sign is determined by the position of the Sun. If you were born on September 22, then you're considered a Virgo according to most people in the Western world. While the influence of the Sun in your birth chart may vary depending on other factors, here are some general traits associated with a Sun in Virgo:

  • You have a strong memory: Ruled by Mercury, Virgo endows you with ample mental strength. You pay attention to the events in your life and have a good memory for people who have helped or wronged you.
  • You enjoy serving others: You have a natural inclination to serve others, particularly in religious, spiritual, or charitable roles. Service is a major part of your personal spirituality.
  • You are skilled in science and the arts: Mercury also brings artistic gifts. You are knowledgeable and talented in writing, calligraphy, art, and mathematics. Your strong memory enables you to learn almost anything.
  • You have feminine features: As a feminine sign, Virgo is recognized by soft features. While you may not possess substantial physical or mental stamina, you excel in empathy and emotional intelligence.
  • You can be shy: You prefer to be in the background and dislike receiving too much attention for your work. Asserting yourself in personal relationships and the workplace might be challenging for you.

Virgo Careers

Virgos are multi-talented individuals who can succeed in a variety of professions. However, they generally prefer to take up a helper role and are rarely found in the driver's seat.

Recommended careers: Virgos do well in careers involving hard facts, data, and service-oriented work. They can excel as mathematicians, scientists, linguists, architects, researchers, teachers, writers, or journalists.

Careers to avoid: Roles involving a high degree of leadership or requiring a strong sense of empathy, such as CEOs, counselors, coaches, or childcare providers, may not be the best fit for Virgos.

Virgo Mantras

A mantra is a short phrase that uplifts and cleanses our mind, heart, and consciousness. Virgos can benefit from meditating with the following mantra:

ॐ बुद्धदेवाय नमः (Om buddha-devaya namaha)

The Vedas contain many mantras that are effective for different people based on their unique circumstances. However, some mantras are universal. The following maha-mantra, or "super mantra," is beneficial for people born in any zodiac sign:

हरे कृष्ण हरे कृष्ण कृष्ण कृष्ण हरे हरे हरे राम हरे राम राम राम हरे हरे (Hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare Hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare)
