planetary ruler | element | modality
planetary ruler - MERCURY
each sign is ruled by a planet. and the planets in your chart are functions and forces within you.
mercury is the planet of perception, learning and communication. in the astro chart, mercury symbolizes how your sense of perception and communication skills operate. it also signifies the kinds of things you are interested in.
element - earth
the earth element is yin in nature, meaning its expression is inward; energy moving toward its center.
earth energy embodies the grounded energy of creativity + practicality. it's a fertile + passive energy that relates to the world in a sensual, grounded way. virgo represents a more finely manicured earth energy, earth that has been cared for to produce a harvest. pragmatic routines + sensuality energizes earth signs and too much movement, sudden change + emotionality can deplete it.
modality - mutable
the modality of a sign describes how that sign moves through the world.
signs with a mutable modality are innately flexible, adaptable and have an affinity for adjustment and fine-tuning creative projects. they love movement and some degree of variability + freedom to their days. too much structure will agitate them.

vibe with virgo's tribe
take your virgo to the local animal shelter to shop for a pet, then throw your virgo a garden party and feature a virgo inspired cocktail from astral tequila. ask guests to bring a potted plant, or gift featuring astraea, the star maiden and one of the various greek myths behind virgo.
