August 24th To September 23rd
The horoscope Virgo sign is the Sixth Sign of the zodiac and is symbolized by a woman. She is viewed by some as a very young woman but most often she is thought of as an old maid.
In mythology, Virgo symbolized Astraea, the goddess of justice. She was so beautiful and everyone on Earth worshipped and loved her. When mankind’s inhumanity towards itself was too overwhelming for her and she could find no peace here on Earth, Astraea went to live in the sky, taking with her a stalk of wheat which she broke and scattered the grains across the sky, thus making the stars in the heavens.
