Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

You’re a pig, and we mean that with total respect.

Virgin, schmirgin! Who the heck thought that one up?

You’re no virgin, that’s for sure, nor are you pure and innocent.

However, you are smart and you do love a good roll in the filth, so pig it is.

Leo

Leo July 23 - August 22) Why bother arguing here? You're a Lion, you own it, you know it, and we all agree. There is no other animal for you unless it's a mini Lion, or a cartoon Lion, or Lion figurine. It doesn't matter. You roar, we cringe and back off, no matter...

Libra

Libra (September 23 - October 22) The scales. Huh? No Libra in the history of the world has ever been even-keeled or well-balanced. You're a cockroach: you survive it all, and mostly by walking on top of people. Libra Libra (♎︎) is the seventh astrological sign in the...

Scorpio

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21) Yeah, being associated with a Scorpion sounds cool and threatening, but are you even slightly cool and threatening in real life? Nah, you're more bark than bite, which makes you a dog. All that Scorpio toughness makes you a...

Sagittarius

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21) You're a horse in so much as you always have hair in your eyes, but it ends there. You're much less fiery Centaur than you are wimpy mouse, and mouse you are, Sagittarius. Hiding in the dark, happily munching on your cracker,...

Cancer

Cancer (June 21 - July 22) Being associated with a crab is just such a downer. A crab? Come on, anything has to be more potent than a crab. You're much more of a whale than a crustacean, any day. Wise, stealthy, somewhat slow but powerful, with a mean mating call....

Gemini

Gemini (May 21 - June 20) That whole "twins" thing is cool when it's there to describe your two-sided nature, but if we had to pinpoint your spirit animal, it would have to be a minnow, or, maybe a sardine. You're the anchovy of the zodiac: little, stinky, and...

Taurus

Taurus (April 20 - May 20) You're a bull, so they say, but the reality is, you're a dog. You are affectionate, playful, goofy, and stubborn as heck. You've got loyalty down to a science, and you love a good bowl of chow. Taurus Taurus (♉︎) (Latin for bull; from the...

Aries

Aries (March 21 - April 19) They call you a ram and that may be all well and good, but you Aries types, you know you're just big ol' wildcats. You're smart, cunning, lazy, and, on occasion, you love to knock stuff off a table. When you walk into a room, people become...

Pisces

Pisces (February 19 - March 10) If there's one animal that could represent the piece of work that you are, Pisces, it would have to be a squirrel. You're fastidious, quick, and selfish. You hoard until there's nothing left, and you glut yourself until you pop. You are...

Virgo

Virgo (♍︎) (Greek: Παρθένος, Parthenos) is the sixth astrological sign in the Zodiac. It spans the 150–180th degree of the zodiac. Under the tropical zodiac, the Sun transits this area on average between August 23 and September 22, and the Sun transits the constellation Virgo from approximately September 16 to October 30.

Individuals born during these dates, depending on which system of astrology they subscribe to, may be called Virgos or Virgoans; they are also represented in newspaper horoscopes with other astrological signs. The symbol of the maiden is based on Astraea.

In Greek mythology, she was the last immortal to abandon Earth at the end of the Silver Age, when the gods fled to Olympus – hence the sign’s association with Earth.

Virgo Myth

Virgo

Is typically linked to Dike, the Greek goddess of justice, and Persephone, the daughter of Demeter, the harvest goddess. According to Greek mythology, the earth experienced eternal spring until the god of the underworld abducted the spring maiden Persephone.

Virgo Cultural significance

Virgo

Most of the goddesses who were linked to Virgo were considered fertility goddesses, or goddesses of the harvest. This resonates with the view of Virgo being the caretaker of mankind through her fertility. This includes Ishtar (Babylonian mythology), Isis (Egyptian mythology), Ceres (Roman mythology), and Demeter (Greek mythology).

The constellation Virgo is thought to be a woman holding an ear of corn, thus reinforcing the Harvest Mother mythology. In one well-known Greek myth, the goddess of Spring Persephone is kidnapped by the god of the Underworld Hades. Upon discovering this, the young goddess’s mother Demeter, being the goddess of the harvest, decides to ruin the harvest in her despair. Eventually the Spring goddess was allowed to return for six months a year to aid her mother in the harvest. This coincides with the constellation Virgo being visible for only the months of March through August.

After leaving Earth, Astraea is said to have been “placed in the heavens”

Astraea is perhaps the most interesting character involved in the Virgo myth, as she is a virgin representing justice, and was a caretaker of humanity. After leaving Earth, she is said to have been “placed in the heavens”, which is most likely why some mythologists believe her to be the constellation “Virgo” itself. Many mythologists suggest that she became the constellation Virgo and her scales of justice became the constellation Libra.
