Virgo Third Decan

Third decan Virgo born between September 14 and September 22. If a person is born between these days, the ruling planet is Venus. They have a softer disposition, and would be slightly more versatile than the other Virgos. They are conscientious, and tend to have a rather refined sense. They may have a discriminatory stance towards myriad things. Artistic activities by such a person would bring both profit and pleasure. Those born under this influence are very sensitive. They are comfortable with the routine and are timid and shy. They don’t like to share their thoughts and feelings with others, until they know people deeply and personally.

The third Decan Virgo personality is characterized by a reserved nature, an artistic sense and sensitivity. They are shy, reserved and timid. They quietly go about their business without disturbing others. They prefer the known to the unknown and feel most comfortable with habit and routine. They do not like to be the centre of attention. They are reluctant to share thoughts and feelings with others.

They have an artistic flair and apply this to their dress sense and home decor. They love to feel comfortable and stylish. Their artistic flair can be turned to advantage when seeking a career path as an artist, musician, designer or architect. They are very sensitive and can be moved easily. They love easily but can be hurt easily too.

Virgo Third Decan - Mental Man of Venus

The characteristic stature of the active Venusian physical body is small, well formed, well proportioned and closely knit. Even however, in the large Venusian type there is a basic smallness of feature, such as in hands, fingers, feet and toes, nose and ears, and overall an inherent feminine delicacy. Facial lines are delicately shaped, appearing small and regular. The eyes tend to be small with a characteristic expression of frankness, simplicity and inquisitiveness.

The physical beauty of the Virgin depends upon the regularity of features and fineness of form. If well endowed there is an appearance of a real gentleness, plastic beauty and physical charm. Evolved Venusian types are always refined, immaculately presented, handsome, tasteful and suitably dressed. Under recessive Venusian influence the eyes appear decidedly cold, cunning and unsympathetic. In the active type in sharp contrast, the eyes express a clear, keen sympathy and open intelligence. Hazel or gray eyes are common but sometimes blue, as we should naturally expect under Venus. The mouth and nose tend to be regular, small and straight. Characteristically the hair, light, dark or indeterminate appears wavy, with unusual shade and contrast in the light, standing up and away from the forehead in a striking manner.

As the inevitable working out of the Law of Cause and Effect—or Karma—in the sign of health, we observe manifold types of physical deformities, lameness, speech impediments, sterility and obscure degenerative diseases. In the recessive type the head is broad-skulled and unduly large for the body, while the face is homely, rather aggressive, sometimes even overbearing in appearance. The eyes have a characteristically unintelligent expression, are generally deep-set and often beady. The very gross mouth or lips occasionally observed are also a physiognomic trait seen in other Venus-ruled decans.

The skin of the face looks stretched, thin, tight, wrinkled and dry—decidedly lacking in moisture in contrast to the opposite sign Pisces. The overall appearance has a hardness, gauntness, sparseness; somewhat—to use a metaphor—like a barren harvest or famine. Under the rulership of Venus it often seems that the mundane subject is doomed to hard work without reward or appreciation, shining best as a frugal and profitless servant carrying on their activities with strict attention to rules and duty.

Consecration to service and duty on any level is the Virgin’s hallmark. Concentration and energy is expended in obediently carrying out the dictates of the patron or employer in the proper and appropriate manner with clean hands, pure heart, sound health and good works.

The Venusian type here does not seek to receive blessings, praise or thanks, and neither is inclined to give them out to others, but solely attempts to diligently fulfil his or her contracts faithfully and earnestly through application of honest workmanship. Under Venus though, success will eventually come after many lifetimes of experience, notably in the creative arts—especially literature, drama or painting which are governed by Venus.

In the early stages of physical development the Virgin does not have a strong tendency to abuse pleasure and so lives a quiet, regular and active life. The usual lure of the physical senses under Venus is modified so that the sensate world often has no great appeal.

The soul is just beginning the work of developing a discriminative faculty, a responsive sensory apparatus; one might say a refined palate. The incarnated soul is developing creative intelligence, which grants mastery of a minute perfectionism, meticulous precision, careful measurement and attention to details. It is the intensity of the soul’s thought behind the perfection of the form which must be appreciated and noted. The Virgoan ever dedicatedly strives, albeit unconsciously to begin with, for the perfection and beauty of the form.

Venus is ever connected in our minds with fertility and sexual potency, but in the sign of the fall harvest it often produces a sterility. Venusians have an innate instinct for purity and chastity, and are naturally repelled for instance by literature dealing with explicit, morbid or unwholesome sexual relations. The rulership of the physical decan by Venus accounts for the Virgin’s acceptance of celibacy, and also the fruitfulness of the Virgoan in carrying out many good works. They care little for prosperity or posterity so long as they can serve "here and now", focusing on those around them in their immediate environment.

Venus here representing the incarnated soul, during the first stage is hidden in the form—symbolically the womb of the Virgin—which is the nurturing force of substance itself. It is hidden and protected by the Mother, the nurturer and shield. The life of the Mother at this stage is more important than the life of the Son. Virgin Matter has attracted the soul and the life of the soul is hidden.

During the first stage therefore, the materialistic aspect of the Mother dominates and the individual life expression is characterized by the selfish personality nature. Aeons later on the Reverse Wheel, the physical form will reveal and release the indwelling soul. Then Venus, the savior of the world, appears and nurtures the hidden souls in Virgo. Although every fact of nature provides a worthy basis for investigation, nature itself must be appreciated from inside out and can never be fully comprehended if only observed from the outside. From the deeply subjective point of view, Venus stimulates the inner germinating energy of mind, the eventual creative force behind consciousness itself.

Ultimately, in the due course of time, in Virgo the inner beauty of the soul is discovered and its secrets laid bare. The pure Virgoan type is a true child of the spirit whose sense of purity, peace and beauty is profound, and eventually becomes transformed into the radiant form of a god or goddess glowing with all the splendors of the soul.

Virgo decan 3 is ruled by Mercury and Venus (Taurus triplicity). The Sun sails through the Lion, the Air Pump, the Great Ship, the Cup and the Great Bear from September 13 to 22. Here we find the famous sharp minds, researchers, perfectionists and organisers.

There are some harsh and unfortunate stars here associated with natural disasters and death alongside the holy grail and the ships bellowing sails. It is fitting that this decan of Virgo contains such sharp contrasts since it is ruled by Mercury the mediator between the earth and the underworld. It’s very black and white here.

Healing ‘Harlots’ & Skeptics

The unfortunate influence probably comes as a result of our Virgo’s not paying attention to natural law and working themselves into the ground. If one does not take control of regulating oneself, then something from the outside will do it in a more dramatic way, similar to the effects of a Uranus transit. Mercury ruled Virgo decan 3 live on their nerves.

They burn a lot of calories just worrying! Their mind is so white hot you can sometimes see quicksilver flashing behind their eyeballs. The problem with having such a strong mind is that their belief program then controls everything. A skeptical Virgo will be very hard to rewire and some find it really hard to trust their intuition, even though they actually have a very fine prophetic ability.

The big challenge for Virgo decan 3 is getting both sides of the brain working in balance. They should be naturals at this but somehow, in our left-brain dominated world, they have allowed that sharp logical side of their head to take over and not even for their own benefit.

Virgos are prime workers since they are dutiful, self-sacrificial, have fantastic brains. Just what the power elite prey on. You can bet that successful IT companies are stuffed full of Virgo decan 3 drones working their magic, while their Pluto bosses take all the credit and lap up the profit.

The tarot card associated with this decan is the ten of pentacles. This decan of Virgo is probably the most commercially successful and this is reflected in the meaning of this card. It shows abundance, thriving, high achievement and solid foundations.

Karmically this card can suggest marrying into money due to having had helped that family in a past life. “Here we are looking at success, prosperity and abundance on many levels.  This Card suggests you have done or will do very well for yourself, not by chance, but by working very hard to achieve it.  Wealth and strong financial security are indicated, and more than likely here to stay, as you have well prepared for this time and have done the essential groundwork.” ~ Teachmetarot

Virgo Decan 3 Fixed Stars

Denebola 21º is a blue star in the tail of the Lion and unlike Regulus was supposed to bring disgrace and ill fortune. Robson says “It gives swift judgment, despair, regrets, public disgrace, misfortune from the elements of nature, and happiness turned to anger and makes its natives noble, daring, self-controlled, generous and busy with other people’s affairs.” That’s one strange mix. Judging by the very prominent people with Virgo decan 3 rising, it looks like some of the fiery Lion stars here give them the drive to succeed and a need to shine.

Virgo Decan 3 Planets & Angles

Sun Virgo 3

Denebola 21º ~ “ Honor and preferment with danger, public disgrace and finally ruin, disease, fevers and acute ailments.” [4a]
Alkes 23º ~ ” A person who is a vessel, one who cares something for others. To hold something for others, be it story-telling, art, music, insights or visions. A national treasure is revealed.” [5]
Virgo Decan 3

Some formidable leaders grace the list below in a sign that is not generally seen as being pushy or bossy in any way. But we forget the sidereal overlap of the constellation of Leo with its angry swat of a lion’s tail. Yes, this Virgo can dish out punishment and authoritarianism as well as any Aries, Capricorn or Leo. Austin Coppock also finds more untypical Virgo behaviour with the Sun here.

“Though often possessed of reserved dispositions, many are subject to wild episodes, for they know that their lives are finite. At times they are liberated by this sense of finity, while at others they rage against it.” [6] Again this mirrors the action of Denebola the lion’s tail. The stars in the great ship make these folk explorers too and they have a wanderlust that makes them loathed to plant very deep roots despite being an earth sign.

The Isis-like devotion to their mates is evident too in some of the subjects below, even when that mate has Plutonic addiction issues. The self-cleansing action of the air-pump and watery Alkes will help to rejuvenate those with their Sun here. We are approaching the equinox where the sun falls into the underworld at 0º Libra, so the ability to resurrect is part of the personality of Sun Virgo 1 also.

Virgo Decans

The Virgo Star Sign is the sixth in the Zodiac. Of all the Star Signs of the Zodiac Virgoans are the most particular, methodical and ordered. The Virgo Star Sign is represented by the Virgin and comes under the influence of the planet Mercury. The planet Mercury rules the mind, communication and mental states.

The Virgo Star Sign is from the element of earth which relates to practicality and groundedness. Because of this Virgoans are very practical and work hard to achieve all they want in life. They are also very intelligent and use their excellent communication skills well.

Virgo First Decan (August 24th - September 3rd)

This Virgo/MERCURY decan is, of course, the most typical. Very much of what was covered above applies fully, but there is more to consider. Since Mercury rules your external self, you’re probably gifted in most areas of communication. You seem to have an especially good command of both the spoken and written word. Possibly you may use this ability profitably as a teacher, speaker, salesperson, reporter, writer, editor, etc. You are very versatile and are able to adapt quickly to changes in your life and environment; you are that rare person who can put "square pegs" in "round holes" if necessary.

Mercury, planet of the mind, is both their ruler and subruler, which give them a formidable intellect. Virgo-Virgo has all the traits of Virgo in double force. They are the purist’s purist. They are almost too good. They are almost too intelligent. Virgo 1st decan is an Earth sign and are by nature an attainder. The double Mercury injects the limitless possibilities that exist for the Virgo-Virgo. Intellectual activity, knowledge, understanding and truth are gifts they do not waste. Mental insistence and concentration are often their greatest strengths.

The Virgo-Virgo in love is romantic, devoted and has a great sensitivity toward a lover. It’s true they place the act of lovemaking on a spiritual level. Virgo-Virgo must connect intellectually in order to be fully attracted to another. Hearing a brilliant idea spoken by someone for whom they care about is enough to give them an orgasm on the spot, that’s where there passion lies. Those best suited for Virgo-Virgo are often with those they can just let go and have a good time. These fun loving types can prove mutually advantageous with the Virgo-Virgo providing structure and dependability, yet the other partner having a more relaxed attitude that those Virgo-Virgo may lack.

The reason First Decan Virgos are survivors is that they are unceasingly productive. Laziness, sloth, greed, and ignorance don’t even appear in the Virgo-Virgo dictionary. They are able to spot and solve molehill problems before they become mountains. They are smarter than the average bear and their motives are never ulterior. Virgo-Virgo have the ability to be flexible, to adapt to situations and problems that arise. Often their insights are thought of as prophetic but they are the result of keen observation.

Virgo Second Decan (September 4th - 13th)

The important sub-influences of this Capricorn/SATURN decan can cause numerous rather interesting differences. Capricorn is the natural ruler of the tenth house of career, profession, business, honors and recognition; therefore, you have a personal hunger for success in everything that you do. You seem never to be satisfied with the status quo when there is even the remotest possibility of improvement. With Virgo as your ascendant, you are more than willing to work hard to get to the top; but your Capricorn sub-influence often makes you experience rather frequent and unpleasant setbacks and delays along the way.

Saturn, the planet of determination, combines with Virgo ruling planet Mercury to give special force to their personality. What determines those two modes of behavior is whether they feel they are successful. Mental Mercury is mixed with toiling, severe Saturn, they will either emerge as an excessive overachiever or when they think they have failed they’re ready to throw in the towel. A kid at heart, Virgo-Capricorns are fond of puzzles, entertaining projects, treasure hunts, fascinating new scientific information.

When a Virgo-Capricorn finds love they have a gentle and sympathetic nature and they do all in their power to please. Those best suited for the Virgo 2nd decan are active, outgoing types, who are a good foil to their thoughtful and at times withdrawn personalities. Virgo-Capricorn often has a taste for the unusual in intimate relations. They may send out silent messages about this to their lovers, which, if noticed, this can bring great satisfaction. Many Virgo-Capricorn have no real need to live with others, but if family life proves inviting they are capable of fitting in well, as long as they have enough time and space to themselves.

Second Decan Virgo make up doubly in goodness, they will walk a mile out of the way not to hurt someone’s feelings. Their social circle consequently tends to be small. Virgo-Capricorn have a peculiar sense of humor, slightly sarcastic and dry but never spiteful. Their faces do not easily reveal what they are really thinking, indeed, showing emotion can be difficult for them. Asking for help may be a real problem for them, they seem fated to work things out alone.

Virgo Third Decan (September 14th - 22nd)

The sub-influences of this Taurus/VENUS decan can induce quite exciting and interesting modifications. Virgo rising alone is enough to make you practical, but adding the Taurus influence puts you clearly in the category of "super practical." In your everyday life if you can’t see, hear, smell, touch, or taste something, it just may not register as being of any importance to you. The fixed nature of Taurus adds a high level of tenacity and staying power to the mutable (changeful) and often indecisive qualities of Virgo. When you set out to do something, it’s your nature to persist until you succeed.

The gregarious and social qualities of Venus combine with Virgo ruling planet Mercury to signify a winning way with people. The blends of Mercury and Venus, puts Virgo-Taurus in an astrological position of good fortune. Virgo-Taurus will more often seem to be characterized by TAUREAN traits: stable, solid and jovial. As Virgo the critic, colored by Taurus the trooper, Virgo-Taurus has been given a marvelous “Can Do” mentality.

Virgo-Taurus are unhappy living under restrictions; they are drawn to creative pursuits where they are free to be their own master. Virgo-Taurus have a definite flair for the sensational; they seek to uncover the truth and to reveal it to the world. Virgo 3rd decan are able to put up with a lot, both in their career and in personal relationships, if the quality of their work or love life is high enough. Those best suited for Virgo-Taurus are without phoniness and pretension. They like people to behave as they really are, and to be truthful to themselves. Virgo-Taurus have strong nurturing and protective instincts, which emerge strongly when their loved one is suffering or under attack. In love, Virgo-Taurus are warmhearted and generous.

Third Decan Virgo has a special talent for using words, writing and speaking charmingly. They are happy realists with a deep appreciation for life. There is an undying optimism about the Virgo-Taurus that is neither false nor deluded. Facing and overcoming obstacles, in fact, can be a specialty of the Virgo-Taurus in all aspects of their lives. They can make excellent parents, for all of their independence and iconoclasm; Virgo-Taurus are usually quite conventional in family matters, particularly enjoying holidays and outings.

Decans 3 virgo

Decans are 10° divisions of the zodiac that add just a little extra flavor to the signs. With the decans of Virgo, the earth signs Capricorn and Taurus add their influence to the second and third decans while the first decan is pure Virgo. Any planet located in Virgo will receive the planetary influence of Mercury (Virgo’s ruler) and a sub-ruler (Mercury, Saturn, or Venus). The ultra-modern and still under review rulers of Virgo and Taurus will also be explored.

The Basics

Virgo is a mutable earth sign ruled by Mercury (although more and more modern astrologers are assigning it to Chiron) and is associated with the 6th house in the natural wheel of the zodiac. A few keywords are:

  • Meticulous

  • Organized
  • Sensitive
  • Analytical
  • Skeptical
  • Detail-Oriented
  • Perfectionistic
  • Service-Oriented
  • Conscientious Worker
  • Wants Practical Results

The 6th house of your chart indicates your approach to your job, the type of work environment you are drawn to, some health issues, healing modalities or therapies, employees, and the way you serve others.

The Decans

Dates for birthdays in the descriptions of the decans are approximate. You would need to consult an ephemeris or have your chart drawn to be sure.

First Decan Virgo ~ 0-9.59°

This decan is both ruled and sub-ruled by Mercury and, therefore, carries the purest Virgo energy. Birthdays range from August 23rd ~ September 1st. If you’re a New Moon baby (both Sun and Moon in Virgo), have your sun within the first 2½ degrees of Virgo, or you have your Sun and other planets in the 6th house, the influence of Mercury and Virgo will be strengthened in your chart. Mercury may or may not be in Virgo, but it will be close by. If you ever need an editor, this is your Virgo! A fine eye for the printed word, they’ll get you out of plenty of snafus.

If you are working with Chiron as ruler of Virgo, look to its sign and house for how its energy is channeled through the chart in the same way you would look at Mercury. Chiron’s symbol looks like a k sitting on top of a circle.

Second Decan Virgo ~ 10-19.59°

Birthdays in this decan range from September 2nd ~ 11th. This is the Capricorn decan, sub-ruled by Saturn.  The strongest Capricorn/Saturnian influence will be found from 10-12.29° of this decan, which is the Capricorn duad. This may add a stronger desire for ambition than other placements in Virgo. Planets aspecting your Sun from Capricorn will strengthen the influence, as will Saturn in aspect to your Sun. This is a Virgo who understands business and has a great head for numbers. With the Cap influence, a wry sense of humor is most likely part of the makeup. Planets in this decan get an added boost if placed in the 10th house, natural home of Saturn and Capricorn.

Third Decan Virgo ~ 20-29.59°

September 12th ~ 21st is the birthday range for this decan. Sub-ruled by Venus, this is the Taurus decan so these Virgos may be less self-critical than those born in the first or second decans. Money-wise and earth-smart, the strongest influence of Venus in this decan will be found at 20-22.29°. If Venus is aspecting your Sun, you have other planets in Taurus, or you have a second house Sun, the Taurean influence will be amplified. It’s easy to imagine a spectacular garden designed and tended by 3rd decan Virgos, with intricate landscape planning and all the knowledge and attention to detail necessary to keep a garden thriving in the worst conditions. Venus may express itself more dynamically through the arts than in the garden and any talent can be meticulously honed through study, skill, and technique.

A little something to ponder: Do you know how to find Earth in your chart? Look directly across from your Sun for this symbol. If your Sun is in Cancer, your Earth will be in Capricorn. If the Sun is in Virgo, Earth will be in Pisces. If in Scorpio, Earth will be in Taurus. There are plenty of reasons for our Earth to be the ruler of Taurus. Think gardens again or think of precious metals as money, the Taurean obsession with food and sensual pleasures. Maybe we could even call her Gaia or Eden ~ an earthly paradise, something most Taureans are busy securing. This is just a “what if,” but worth pondering nonetheless. (I thank Donna Cunningham at Sky Writer for the discussion that prompted all this pondering.)

Don’t confuse Earth with the Part of Fortune. The symbols are quite similar. Earth has the cross in a circle; Part of Fortune has the X. Here’s the Part of Fortune symbol:

Duads of Virgo

Each sign can be also be divided into 12 sections, with each 2½° falling under the rulership of a sign and planet. To determine the duads, always start with the first 2½ degrees belonging to the sign’s ruler and then progress through the zodiac. Duads are a much subtler influence than the decan’s ruler, but may give you a better understanding of any planet placed in Virgo. Starting degrees are noted for each duad.

Degrees and Rulers of Virgo’s Duads: 

Virgo Decan: Ruled and Sub-ruled by Mercury (or Chiron, if you prefer) 
0 ~ Virgo, Mercury
2½  ~ Libra, Venus
5  ~ Scorpio, Mars and Pluto
7½ ~ Sagittarius, Jupiter

Capricorn Decan: Ruled by Mercury, Sub ruled by Saturn
10 ~ Capricorn, Saturn
12½ ~ Aquarius, Saturn and Uranus
15 ~ Pisces, Jupiter and Neptune (This has a Full Moon feel as balance is needed in this polarity.)
17½ ~ Aries, Mars

Taurus Decan: Ruled by Mercury, Sub-ruled by Venus
20 ~ Taurus, Venus
22½ ~ Gemini, Mercury
25  ~ Cancer, The Moon
27½ ~ Leo, The Sun

The Anarectic Degree of Virgo ~ The 29th Degree

The 29th degree of any sign is a degree that is torn between two signs. In Virgo, the anarectic degree is torn between the influence of Virgo and Libra. Add the influence of the last duad and three signs are in play: Virgo, Taurus, and Leo, plus the strong pull toward Libra. These Virgos are probably less austere than most because both Leo and Taurus enjoy a life of luxury as star of the show or king of the castle.

Virgos, do you notice the added influence that the subrulers of your decan bring? How are they supported in your chart ~ by house placement, aspect, other planets?

All about Zodiac Sign Virgo

Sun Sign Virgo


Able Competent Conscientious Detailed Diligent Effective Hard-working Helpful Modest Nervous Obsessive Quick-witted Versatile

VIRGO IN 2021 Planetary Energies, Influences & Key Dates for your sign in 2021


  • Virgos are natural born organisers.
  • Virgos are neat and resourceful and there is nothing more satisfying to them than the feeling that they have done a near-perfect job.
  • Virgos fear Chaos and the feeling that things are out of control. They loathe the thought of making a mistake.
  • Virgos come across as thoughtful, considerate and efficient if somewhat nervous and fastidious. Their practical skills, innate helpfulness and modesty are much appreciated by others.
  • Virgos are plagued by perfectionism and they often pay too much attention to unimportant details.


Virgos tend to suffer with nervous anxiety which affects their intestinal tract. They can also be prone to allergies and intolerance to specific foods. They need a daily routine that includes enough physical exercise, regular meals and a nutritious diet. They struggle to switch off, and leave their duties aside while they take a break from their must-do list.


Money is often a source of worry although Virgos are great at making a little go a long way. They really only need enough to cover their modest daily wants, but they like to have a financial cushion to fall back on in case they become ill or something stops working. Virgos gain satisfaction from earning their own living.


The most organised of all the zodiac signs, Virgos often select support roles which enable them to operate effectively behind the scenes. Excellent at taking orders, Virgos work obediently and diligently to deliver results. They do not need admiration and applause but they do like to receive genuine gratitude for their input. They resent being treated like an unpaid servant or having their efforts being taken for granted. Virgos are drawn to careers which offer them the chance to sharpen their skills in data management as well as providing training in methods and techniques that enhance efficiency and delivery.


  • Virgo’s character is influenced by the planet of information, giving the 6TH Sign an aptitude for organising data.
  • Virgos are quick to understand what is needed in most situations. Their efficient administrative skills make them very handy helpers.
  • Virgos like to be of use to others and offer their support in a modest, unassuming way.
  • They must watch out for a tendency to turn themselves into unpaid servants and then resent the fact that people seem to be taking them for granted.


Mutable Quality & Earth Element 

This combination results in energy which is practical and adaptable. Virgoans are excellent multi-taskers and prefer to be kept busy but they do have to be careful not to give themselves too much to do. Stressing about whether they can sustain their output to the standards they have set for themselves is detrimental to their health and wellbeing.


The Sixth Zodiac Sign is at its best when there’s work to be done. Virgos like to keep themselves busy and become nervous and fretful when they are not sure what to do next. They need timetables and check lists to give them a sense of order. Otherwise they begin to sense that chaos is creeping up and taking over, which makes them feel very uncomfortable. They would rather repeat tasks they have already completed than be at a loose end.


The Virgo House is all about keeping a handle on the fine details of running a daily routine. How to work through to-do lists, and how to apply skills, techniques and methods to getting the job done. This house points to health and wellbeing issues as well as dietary and exercise needs. The 6th house also describes attitudes towards animals and relationships with pets.

The Three Decans of Virgo

Each zodiac sign is 30 degrees long and is divided into three Decans of 10 degrees each.


This is the slickest section of the sign. Fast-moving Virgo energy in the First Decan is competent and quick. Data is processed and organised with speed and skill, and there is an ability to multi-task which adds to the overall efficiency of this type of Virgo. There might be a tendency to suffer from information overload, which could have a negative effect on health and wellbeing.

The Mercury influence on this Decan suggests a clever way of finding just the right systems and techniques to fit the task in hand. This ability might seem simple and look easy but it would be very difficult for anyone with less well co-ordinated mental acumen to deliver the same spot-on results.


This is the most competent yet self-critical section of the sign. Virgo energy in the Second Decan is hard-working and aspirational with an impressive grasp on how to work with corporate structures and protocols. But this type of Virgo might be overly modest about their own ability to head up professional hierarchies and they could doubt their ability to cope with the power and responsibility involved in taking a top job.

The Saturn influence on this Decan suggests that, however shy and self-deprecating this Virgo exterior may seem, there is an ambitious itch just beneath its surface. But a tendency to be too dutiful and overly respectful of authority may mean that Second Decan Virgos stay in support roles rather than stepping up to fill prime positions.


Virgos of this Decan will probably be more relaxed and easy going than the other two sections of the sign. They may also be the most interested in following regular and predictable daily routines that allow time to enjoy and digest meals. All Virgos like to feel they have completed tasks to the best of their ability but this type is particularly interested in doing things properly, to a high standard of workmanship. They are the ones who will be most upset by any lack of harmony or consistency in the fine details of anything they accomplish.

The Venus influence on this kind of Virgo indicates a flair for setting up systems that make life easier and which build long-lasting peace and stability, both at home and in the workplace. Third Decan Virgos want to enjoy the process of carrying out their daily duties and they are prepared to put effort into acquiring skills and techniques that ensure they continue to do so.

Virgo in Relationships


Virgo’s cool, analytical approach frequently masks a lack of confidence in their own desirability. They often express their true feelings for others in practical ways.


Communication is all-important. Virgo friendships usually involve a fair amount of co-counselling and mutual advising.


Virgo often assumes the role of helper within the family, and can end up feeling like a doormat. Learning to say No is a very important lesson for them.


Virgo’s organisational skills are an asset but their modesty and a tendency to worry about small details can keep them from applying for high profile positions.


Virgo always likes to feel useful so their key relationship usually revolves around work or some form of service.

Compatibility between Zodiac Elements


Astrology suggests that it is easier for the three signs within one Element to get on together, as the energy which drives them comes from the same source. But this does not mean that relationships between signs from different elements are doomed to fail, although it might take longer for them to understand and accommodate the differences between them.


VIRGO with FIRE SIGNS Fire & Earth Signs can create extremely productive partnerships so long as their roles are clearly defined and properly rewarded.

  • ARIES This pair covers all the corners. Aries provides the motivation and Virgo takes care of the detail.
  • LEO This is the perfect upstairs/downstairs combination. Virgo is happy to carry out orders and Leo likes to give them.
  • SAGITTARIUS This is a question of perspective. Virgo desires details whereas Sagittarius seeks the big picture.

VIRGO with FELLOW EARTH SIGNS Earth Signs share an interest in practical projects and tangible results, but they can encourage each other to get over-involved with material matters.

  • TAURUS There could be a pace problem with these two. Virgo wants to be busy from dawn to dusk whereas Taurus prefers to take a calm, slow and relaxed approach to their day.
  • VIRGO are you SURE we remembered to turn off the gas? These two could drive each other to distraction with their attention to detail.
  • CAPRICORN These two can achieve a great deal. Capricorn sets down the objectives and Virgo makes sure everything goes according to plan.

VIRGO with AIR SIGNS Pair-ups between Earth & Air Signs can be rather dry unless there are shared interests, ideals and activities to provide the passion.

  • GEMINI These two share a love of information but their priorities do not match. Virgo needs to ensure all the boxes are ticked while Gemini just wants a quick summary.
  • LIBRA This couple could whip themselves up into a peak of perfectionism. Virgo is terrified of making a mistake and Libra dreads making the wrong choice.
  • AQUARIUS Their techniques could not be more different. Virgo swears by tried and tested methods whereas Aquarius wants to innovate and do things differently.

VIRGO with WATER SIGNS Earth & Water Sign compatibility can be very satisfying on all levels: physical, mental and emotional. But it can get too exclusive, making others feel left out.

  • CANCER This is a sensible arrangement. Virgo organises tea in a warmed pot and Cancer contributes the carrot cake.
  • SCORPIO This precision pair have a lot in common although Scorpio’s urge to confront challenge can make self-critical Virgo feel inadequate.
  • PISCES An attraction of opposites, these two see-saw between order and chaos. Virgo feels safe with Order but Pisces finds Chaos more creative.

Compatibility between the Zodiac Sign Qualities


Traditional Astrology used to believe that it would be difficult for the four signs within one Quality to get on together. Actually they are perfectly capable of bringing out the best in one another. But relationships between them can be challenging for both partners, as disagreements can arise when their energies clash or turn confrontational.


These four signs share an ability to adjust and adapt to changing circumstances which ensures that life remains mobile and interesting. Difficulties would be caused by a lack of focus, or an inability to be clear about what both partners expected from the relationship between them. It is possible that they could wander off in diverse directions without identifying when, where, how and why they were going to meet up again!

It is a question of priorities. Once they have identified a specific target, Cardinal signs make it their main objective and aim their energies towards achieving it. Mutable signs tend to lack focus as their main motivation is to find variety and diversity in life. But Mutable signs can help their Cardinal pals to keep a range of options open rather than pursuing just one route, and Cardinal signs can help their Mutable partners to concentrate on one goal at a time.

It is a question of intensity. Fixed Signs have a habit of giving their all to whatever they have chosen as their mission in life. Mutable signs seek a wide range of interests and prefer not to get bogged down in any single issue. Fixed signs can help their Mutable friends to go deeper and get more involved. Mutable signs can help their Fixed partners to lighten up and take things less seriously.

Virgo Mythology


Planet Mercury in its female aspect is linked to Vesta Goddess of Hearth and Home. Her influence gives Virgos their modesty and their ability to organise effectively. In Greek mythology Mercury was Hermes and his female half was Hestia. Her name is not very well known because she is not one of the starring roles in mythology. She spent much of her time alone, working quietly and efficiently to create a peaceful sanctuary for the gods to return to when they were exhausted by their adventures. Virgoans are like Hestia in their ability to stay behind the scenes, doing essential work upon which the leading characters in life depend. Without them, the show could not go on.

Virgo and the Tarot


Virgo has an affinity with the suit of PENTACLES which represents energy that is practical, sensible and realistic. Pentacles are about material matters involving money, property and earthly goals. They can also symbolise issues around ambition, achievement and social status.

Note: Your Zodiac Sign refers to which astrological constellation the Sun appeared to be in on the date of your birth. Each sign lasts for about 30 days, starting from around the 21st of each calendar month. If you were born close to the cusp of one sign and the next, you will need to check your year of birth for which date and at what time on that date, the Sun moved signs.

Virgo Decan: All Three Decans of Virgo & Their Astrology

Virgo Decan: All Three Decans of Virgo & Their Astrology

Decan is one of the smallest astrological elements that will allow us to go in-depth with someone’s personality traits, astrological predictions, and many other things. There are three Decans to each zodiac sign, dividing them equally into 10 degrees each. Today, we are talking about Virgo Decans.

Virgo Decan - Quick Bites

  • 1st Virgo Decan is born between 23rd August and 2nd September, and they are ruled by Mercury. The planet bestows them with excellent communication skills.
  • 2nd Virgo Decan is people who are born between 3rd September and 12th September, and they are ruled by Saturn. The planet bestows them with strength yet sensitivity.
  • 3rd Virgo Decan is people who are born between 13th September and 22nd September, and they are ruled by Venus. The planet bestows them with love and art.

What is Virgo Decan?

People born between August 23 and September 22 are Virgo natives. They can, however, be divided into three even smaller fragments of Astrological elements. These decans can tell us a lot about a person, as we mentioned above.

Since each Zodiac sign is made up of 30 degrees, each Decan will be allotted 10-degrees. So, now you know what a Virgo Decan is. It is one-third of Virgo. Let’s go into the in-depth analysis of Virgo Decan one, two, and three.

Virgo Decan 1 - August 23rd to September 2nd

Virgo first Decan natives can be synonymous with givers. They are some of the most generous, caring, and considerate people for the once they care about. Good with communication, they have good command over their languages and mannerism. To top it all, they are also very creative. A Virgi Decan 1 will always find a way out of a tricky situation.

They can be very diplomatic at times, and that too without anyone knowing that. That’s because they have just the right words to say without offending anyone in the process. Sarcasm is their go-to tool of defence, and they do not lack anything in that department. A Virgo first Decan native is always ready to learn more and more. They will do experiments on their own to learn new things and expand their horizons.

How Mercury Affects Virgo 1st Decan

Mercury represents communication and curiosity, and by the characteristics that we mentioned above, you may have already guessed it. The planet makes them versatile and inventive. They believe in discipline and order in specific areas of their lives, and in all the other departments, they can be messy. Virgo first Decan natives also believe in working hard for the things they want in life.

Mercury bestows them with very analytical and logical skills. The careers that require complete dedication, attention to detail, and practicality are the best suited for these natives. Virgo Decan 1 natives are very ethical with their work. They can be trusted with their honesty in their workplace. If they find a job worth doing, they will do it with utter perfection. These natives strive for perfection in whatever they do.

How a person behaves in a specific situation depends on many factors and not just their Decan. For example, your ascendant and moon sign will tell you a lot about your personality and fight-or-flight behaviour. But where do you find your ascendant and the moon sign? The answer is there in your Janampatri, a chart that tells you the position of the planets at the time of your birth.

Virgo Decan 2 -September 3rd to September 12th

Virgo’s second Decan natives are blessed with the natural ability to solve problems practically. Wherever they go, they are bound to gain attention with their confidence. If you have a Virgo 2nd Decan native as your friend, you may already know that they are the ones you will look up to when you want to talk intellect.

They are also good with skills like negotiation, persuasion, and even carving the ways to the destinations they want to reach. 2nd Virgo Decan natives can be overly obsessed with cleanliness and neatness. Order in life is what they strive for. If there is a mess nearby, they will know. These are cautious people and do not like to be in fear of the unknown. Unfamiliarity will always make them uncomfortable.

How Saturn Affects Virgo 2nd Decan

Contrary to the reputation Saturn carries, the planet makes them sensitive, sympathetic, and caring. The general Saturn traits like organising, tactfulness, and strong will power can also be naturally found in these natives. Even in the chaos, these are some of the most organised people you will find. Virgo’s practicality and discipline also can be seen prominently in these natives. Their perfectionist nature helps them with their work, too.

Not only themselves but they also possess enough leadership skills to motivate others. They are good with assertiveness and delegation, too, which makes them excellent leaders and managers. Sometimes, this blessing can be a drawback, as they demand the same qualities in people they deal with. These natives are mentally powerful and come out with flying colours, no matter their situation. They like professional success and wealth, too.

Virgo Decan 3 - September 13th to September 22nd

Lovers of luxury, they love having good things in life. However, they are not materialistic. They will go the distance just to make someone smile. Restrictions are not their thing, and they absolutely hate living under them. They will choose creative pursuits, which will make them feel free. They are blessed with a talent to face adversities and win them, no matter what comes their way.

Virgo Decan 3 natives do not like to be the centre of the attraction and prefer to be in the shadows. You will always find them operating from the background. When it comes to vulnerability and sharing how they feel, they will still feel shy. Once you break the shell and they become more comfortable with you, they will feel relaxed and tell you everything about them. Adorable!

How Venus Affects Virgo 3rd Decan

Venus is the reason why they love finer things in life. The planet also makes these natives warm, loving, and shy. They are reserved, have the mind and eyes for the art, and are sensitive. Moreover, Virgo Decan 3 are joyful and stable. They like to think and be positive. At the same time, determination and power are their virtues. Persistent is something they are never lacking.

They are always equipped with the ‘I can do it’ mentality; they are still seeking a good cause, mobilising their energy, and doing everything to reach there. Their determination itself takes care of any roadblocks that may bug them. Venus also makes them faithful, and they are known to devote all their attention to their partner. Gossip is what these natives hate the most. They expect the same loyalty and honesty they possess from other people as well.
