Virgo is the sixth zodiac sign on the zodiac circle and represents the transition of the sun through the sign of the Maiden between August 23 and September 22 every year, according to the tropical astrology.

Therefore, everyone who is born in this period is said to belong to the Virgo sign. The symbol associated with this sign is the Maiden. This is one of the classical representations of purity and innocence coupled with elegance and dignity.

The Maiden also pertains to matters of food, health and personal care. It suggests an individual who is careful with both his appearance and his personal growth. The glyph for the Virgo zodiac sign depicts a maiden with long beautiful features, sometimes holding a bundle of wheat.

Symbolism and history of the Maiden:

The Maiden in the Virgo astrology meaning is the representative figure of the innocence and purity. It is also a symbol of knowledge coupled with dignity and elegance in a noble and calm appearance.

The Maiden is represented in different culture as an innocent young woman who is in control of the resources and abundance of earth and of the rewards of autumn.

In Greek mythology it is represented by the girl Astraea one of the children of the Gods. It is said that the moment Pandora opened her famous box, all the gods came back to the skies and this little girl lost her way. She managed to reach the skies later on but in remembrance of this episode, Zeus decided to place her in the skies, so creating the Virgo constellation.

Characteristics of the Maiden:

The Maiden is usually depicted as a virgin young woman full of purity and in charge with the abundance of earth. It is a symbol of first time discoveries and of learning about the world one step at a time. These natives discover the world in their own way and are always inquisitive and observant of what is going on around them.

The maiden holding a bundle of wheat describes the intellectual nature of the Virgo natives, their wise and critical personality but also the wealth and richness that is enclosed in a refined and sensible individual.

The natives in Virgo are shy and idealistic but they are not quick to jump into action as they prefer to weight every decision thoroughly. They are sometimes prudish but they do know to adapt to any situation and to any kind of people.
