Virgo, the sixth zodiac sign, is all about being precise—just how Virgos like things. People born under this sign often get teased for being picky and critical (which they can be), but they focus on details for a reason: to help others. They feel happiest when they’re serving because that’s what they’re naturally good at. They’re hardworking, organized, and really good at getting things done. These folks have a strong sense of duty, always aiming to do what’s best for everyone.
The Virgo constellation goes way back to Babylonian times, linked to the goddess Shala, who was often shown holding grain. She represented fertility and the harvest, forming some of Virgo’s earliest meanings.
In Greek myths, Virgo was connected to Demeter, who looked after the earth’s bounty and agriculture. Romans also linked Virgo to Ceres, governing similar agricultural themes. Even today, Virgo remains tied to planting, growing crops, harvesting food, and herbal medicine. During the Middle Ages, Virgo’s symbolism as a virgin was associated with The Virgin Mary.
