Qualities of a Virgo

Virgo is one of the earth signs, along with Taurus and Capricorn. Earth signs value stability and consistency, and Virgos especially are are reliable, detail-oriented and organized. Often focused the future, Virgos think through the various outcomes of every action and worry about making the right choice. Responsible and generous, Virgos are excellent planners and thoughtful partners.

Virgos are practical and can be more interested in the reality of a situation than more dreamy possibilities. However, they are always striving to improve themselves and their world, which lifts their eyes from their immediate circumstances. Virgos consider all possible futures, then work hard to bring the best one to fruition.

Virgo Symbols

Humanity: The Virgo is one of the few Zodiac signs associated with a human, rather than an animal or object, symbol. The “virgin” or “goddess” represents the way that Virgos connect strongly with the human society around them, acting as teachers and communicators. To a Virgo, the people they surround themselves with are very important, and they will be loyal and committed in friendship, love, and their careers.

Mercury: Virgo’s ruling planet is Mercury - the smallest planet, and one with the fastest orbit around the sun. This symbol means that Virgos are quick thinkers, clever, and adaptable. Mercury, the messenger god, gives Virgos their association with language. Whether it’s writing, speaking, or finding someone’s “love language,” Virgos tend to be strong communicators.

Autumn: Virgos are born during the autumnal season, and the Virgo woman is often depicted holding harvest bundles of wheat. This perfectly captures the way a Virgo balances joyful abundance in the present with cautious preparation for the future. Brisk fall temperatures reflect the Virgo’s personality: rarely prone to impulsivity, but sparkling in their own way.

Crystals for Virgos 

According to some myths, the goddess symbolized by the Virgo constellation was said to have left earth during the Silver Age. The Virgo sign is also associated with the planet Mercury, which connects this sign to crystals of a grey or silver color. This means that crystal work for Virgos can be especially powerful with silver crystals such as hematite and smoky quartz. 

Since Virgo is an autumnal sign, the golden colors of a bountiful harvest and the reds and oranges of the fall foliage are perfect crystals for reflecting a Virgo’s energies. Mookaite, Sunstone, and Tiger’s Eye are excellent choices for a Virgo looking to work with crystals.

Crystal Work for Virgos

Because anxiety and perfectionism can be struggles for Virgos, crystal work can focus on reducing these tensions. 

Crystal meditations for Virgos:

  • I am enough just as I am
  • Achievement does not equal worthiness
  • Disorder is a natural part of the universe

  • Virgos are often skilled at planning for the future, and crystals for Virgos can be an integral part of your journaling or intention-setting exercises.

    Use crystals to:

    • Cultivate a curious openness toward the future
    • Let go of goals or plans that no longer serve you
    • Set intentions that reflect your true values
