Ancient Egyptians associated Virgo with the goddess Au Set (later known as Isis), who, among other things, taught women to grind corn. The Virgin, symbol of your sign, often holds an ear of grain, alluding to the harvest of late summer. You understand the harvest of hard work, which entails observation, measuring differences, tabulating details, memorizing data, systematizing andorganizing methods of operation. Your love for order and harmony is revealed in the way you approach life. You function on a cerebral level, but because you're an earth sign, your mental approach is pragmatic. You want to see results, your own personal harvest.
Your keyword is DISCRIMINATION. It's what you use to resolve the various conflicts you're faced with on a daily basis. Not much gets by you without questioning it, because you need to allocate a place and system for everything. You're perpetually in the assessment and preparation stages of making adjustments. You prefer to make your own decisions. Your process of judgment involves analyzing everything down to the last detail before taking action. You can be fault-finding and very sarcastic, but you are not naturally aggressive. Your poised, cool or retiring exterior is an indication of your need for inner peace.
Your symbol, the Virgin, often holds bard in her hand, implying the importance of diet. The symbol usually holds corn, which suggests that you should eat what grows from the ground rather than what walks on it. The digestive system is your body's vulnerable area and, if afflicted, could adversely affect your nervous system and mental outlook. Try to eat your meals on schedule and in a relaxed state, and seriously consider the quality of your bard intake. Avoid fat and greasy bards and emphasize cereals or gluten-free grains if you suffer digestive disorders. Exercise on a treadmill or stationary bicycle in your home. Wear proper shoes to protect your ankles and lower legs, which are also sensitive areas for you. Investigate new approaches to health and modern remedies including medicinal herbs, subliminal tapes and hypnotherapy.
Your forte is small talk. You are playfully sarcastic, helpful and generous with advice, and you're at your best when you're tolerant, sympathetic and easygoing. However, with your need for privacy, you can be somewhat of a loner. You're prudent about love and approach it with your head. You want it to fit into a schedule or program and to be orderly, emphasizing stability and security. Your ideal in a romantic relationship is someone who's mature, conservative, responsible, well established, practical and organized. You're likely to meet your mate among corporative executives, architects, builders, contractors, farmers, government officials, land owners, entrepreneurs, politicians, ranchers and real estate agents.
You are an ideal worker, because of your ability to be responsible, thorough, efficient, detail-oriented and well organized. You approach in original ways. You work well on your own, but the more sociable and club-like your work atmosphere, the better. There will often be a humanitarian motive in choosing your field of work. You lean toward social services, medicine, psychiatry, education, consulting or science. With your eye for order and balance, you would do well in design, gardening, landscaping or engineering. Ultimately, you could excel as a communications specialist in computers, radio, television and newspapers, or as a speaker or writer. Occupations involving travel could also appeal to you.

A Virgo might say, "I always wanted to do, explore, examine or read this." With Aries, a Virgo will take these risks; however, ultimate goals in life are not the same for Aries and Virgo.
