Virgo Birthstone / September Birthstone
Sun in Virgo identifies ego with the need to serve and perfect the world. Virgo Suns are exacting, methodical, and critical. Virgo often bares a bad reputation for being naggy and hypercritical, however, be rest assured that they are no harder on anyone than they are on themselves. Actually, Virgo Suns are usually quite tough on their own quest for self-improvement, and often make martyrs out of themselves while looking to better themselves through the service of others. Virgo Suns have an amazing ability to adapt to any situation that comes upon them, and are willing to hold responsibility for their lives and choices. Virgo rules health, so not only do they understand the ways to keep the body humming under stress, but many keep themselves in excellent fitness to keep up with the rigorous routine they build for themselves. Virgo Sun tends to be quite practical, and will often go to the most logical solution for any given problem. They have clear thinking in a crisis situation, and are the people you go to if you need a job done right.
It is the Virgo Sun’s very nature to worry. It takes a great amount of character to overcome this, so when dealing with someone who has this placement, it is best to not trivialize their concerns, but rather to help them find a positive way of viewing the situation. They will worry anyway, just maybe not quite as much. Virgo Sun folks tend to be picky eaters, and would rather have you at their house than go to yours for a dinner engagement. To Virgo, compromising on this issue means letting them pick a restaurant. The Virgo Sun likes good food, nice clothing, and admires beautiful architecture. Their preferences are not set in stone, however, and if introduced to something new, they can change and adapt their preferences to new things that they learn. Virgo Sun loves to learn, the more information they can amass in a lifetime, the happier they are.
While the Virgo Sun has great qualities when it comes to function and practicality, they can be terrible tough and critical on themselves. When a Virgo Sun is unhappy with themselves, they have the inclination to be very critical and picky of everyone and everything around them. It is important for the Virgo Sun to keep in mind that while intelligent, they have to remember other people and how they contribute to their lives. When a Virgo Sun loses him or herself in critical thinking or work, they can often be completely unaware that their sharp words effect others in a very negative way. In an effort to perfect all that is around them, some will lose patience for others who are not working as hard. Also, Virgo Suns can ruin their own health through caring for and worrying about other people or their job. The consummate workaholic, sometimes they just do not know where to draw the line.
