Virgo is a virgin for a reason.
We may learn a lot about Virgo by looking at its ruling planet, Mercury, which rules communication, intellect, and travel and is also linked to the sign of Gemini.
Mercury appears as a quick-thinking, talkative, and lively force in Gemini (a mutable air sign). However, because Virgo is an earth sign, it represents Mercury’s more self-contained vitality.
Virgo’s task is to sort through the harvest with the help of Mercury, essentially separating what is necessary from what isn’t. Virgo is dedicated to this work, which is why they are known as the zodiac’s editors.
The “virginity” of Virgo isn’t often associated with sexual purity. It has to do with the sign’s commitment to purity and service. It also proves that Virgos are entirely capable of looking after themselves.
Virgo is a changeable sign, which means it helps us shift from one season to the next (in the Northern Hemisphere, Virgo season begins when summer transitions to fall), thus it has mental and physical flexibility and vitality, similar to Gemini, another Mercury-ruled sign.
