Do You Have the Sun in Virgo?
What happens when you're born right on the cusp?

Virgo is an Earth sign

What's your sign?

Do you have The Sun in Virgo? If you were born between August 23 and September 22, you likely have a Virgo Sun in your Natal Chart. But, the beginning and end dates can be a little ragged because the celestial schedule and human calendars don't always synch.

If you're one of those special souls born near a sign change ... "on the cusp", you'll need a real astrologer ... or an internet computer program ... to cast your chart and say for sure.

Your Sun Sign is the one you name when someone asks ... "What's your sign?" Everyone has one Sun sign ... even those complex souls born on the cusp. But, if you were born on a day when the Sun changed signs, people born early ... before the sign change ... will be one sign. People born later ... after the sign change ... will be the other.

It's nice to know for sure ...

Does this matter? Well, yes ... and no. It's nice to know which sign you are for sure. But the complexities of cusp-born people is a discussion all by itself, and in real life, the subtleties of personalities born on either side of a sign change will be very discreet.

If you're a Leo born on the day the Sun moved into Virgo, your character will be a little more flamboyant and colorful than your born-later Virgo star siblings. Life for you will be a little more dramatic and your outlook a little more self-centered than for the Virgo version of this mix born a little later in the day.

They will be more modest and pragmatic, a little more willing to help out -- and stay out of the spotlight. But they will still show a lot of Leo qualities in their make-up, and you will show a lot of Virgo in yours.

The same, of course, holds at the other end of the sign. If you're a Libra born on a day that began with the Sun in Virgo, there's an extra bit of grace and charm in you ... and more lovely people-skills in your character than your earlier-born Virgo kin. But you still have a lot in common.

You have plenty of Virgo logic -- a keen eye and a well-honed discernment in your make-up ... and they will have have a touch of Libra's elegance, social skills and diplomacy in theirs. The difference is mostly a technical one ... a matter of very tiny degrees.

Other considerations

Astrology, like life, operates on a continuum. There may be dividing lines for the sake of distinction and organization. Cusp divisions are like this. But there are still many shades of gray. And in the borderlands betwixt and between, there's plenty of overlap.

Still, your Sun's position, because it's fairly predictable, is the easiest celestial position to track, which is why "thumbnail astrology" depends so heavily on Sun Sign qualities to describe a person's character. But, although the Sun is undeniably a major player in Astrology, it is only one of several dozen important indications of character in your Natal Chart -- your horoscope.

Some of these other points, depending on what else resides in your horoscope, can be extremely influential in fashioning the final result.

Closing remarks

The Sun is the Astrological symbol that represents your ego, your basic sense of yourself. It gives information about how you see yourself, the role you play in Life's great creative cycle, the things that are important to you ... and the ways in which you want to be important to the world.

The sign that contains the Sun tells a lot about the qualities you use to express yourself ... to get noticed ... and to be "part of the world." In many ways, it defines the essence of you as an evolving, thriving, dynamic spiritual being.

The House of your Natal Chart that contains the Sun reveals the area of life where you feel your most intense ambitions, the area of life where you express yourself and your importance, and the place where you really want to shine.

The Sun in Signs around Virgo

* Born with the Sun in Leo -- The Leo Character ---> The Zodiac's Constant Kid ---> A Leo soul is a true showman, celestial royalty, the undeniable star of the Zodiac. He can be a delightful mix of youthful exuberance, playfulness, enthusiasm and joy ... like a real-life Peter Pan, the kid who refuses to grow up.

* Born with the Sun in Libra -- The Libra Character ---> Libra is about pairs and partnership ---> The social sign ... ---> Libras don't do well as singles. They feel incomplete without another half in their life -- another person to whom they feel profoundly connected and intimately involved.

The Sun in Virgo

Making the Most of the Sun in Virgo ---> The Gifts of The Sun in Virgo ---> The energy of the Sun in Virgo is logical, rational, and discriminating. It encourages organized, efficient attitudes -- and helps you "get some work done." It brings extra focus to the chores, errands, commitments, and everyday responsibilities that keep life's business flowing smoothly.

* Understanding the Sun in Virgo ---> When the Sun travels through Virgo ---> The Sun travels through the Astrology sign Virgo once a year, a trip that lasts about a month. The Sun is in Virgo from late August until late September. The energy of the Sun in Virgo is pragmatic, logical and discerning -- and accompanies a rise in these attitudes in everyone. While the Sun travels through Virgo, you may become more productive, more concerned with the work and services you provide -- and interested in maximizing both the quality and quantity of your contributions.

The Sun in Astrology

* The Sun -- Ruler of Leo -- Symbol of Your Essential Self ---> The Sun, without which life on Earth could not exist as we know it, is the astrological metaphor which symbolizes an individual's basic personality, the underlying canvas upon which all the other colors and elements of his character are co-mingled and combined.

* My Notes About the Sun in Astrology ---> Note: This is a random collection of "things to know about the Sun in Astrology," listed in no particular order, but it gives a pretty complete description of what this essential point of reference can tell you ... or at least tell your Astrologer. Predictable and easy to find ---> * The Sun is the best known player in Astrology. The Zodiac sign it was traveling through when you were born ....

Acting from the Center of the Sun -- Acting from the Center of Yourself ---> It's not magic ---> Astrology is not about magic, or superstition or self-delusion. Essentially, Astrology is about symbolism ... knowing how to read the code of life that the patterns in the stars depict. This is not because the planets and other heavenly bodies Astrology uses in its language are in certain signs or locations per se, but because ....

More about the Sun

* You Are Your Sunshine -- Sun Energy in your horoscope ... -- what it is and what it does ---> The center of it all ---> In Astronomy, the planets in our Solar System revolve around the Sun ... the celestial body at the center of it all ... keeping things together and sustaining life as we know it. In Astrology, your Sun energy defines your life purpose, your central essence ... the power that fashions and expresses the character that is completely, uniquely you.

* Interpreting the Sun in Your Horoscope ---> The Sun ---> Represents the inner self Your inherent sense of purpose, destiny or importance in life Ego, drive, willpower, ambition Your individual self-expression Your sense of personal identity What you strive to be How you seek to gain attention ---> The Sun expressing positively ---> Ambitious, confident, creative, dignified, dynamic, generous, honorable, influential, loyal, noble, a leader ....

Your Sun and Sun Sign -- What they mean in your horoscope ---> Your Sun Energy The central essence of you ---> In Astrology, the Sun represents your basic personality, the central cluster of traits and interests, strengths and personal issues that color and influence the various other parts of your character -- the inner selves and different roles described by the nine other planets in your horoscope. The Sun is an important component in Astrology, but as you see ... it is only one player among many.

Also About the Sun

* Sun Power -- Sun energy in your horoscope and personality -- What does the Sun represent in Astrology -- and why is it important? ---> It's complicated -- and so are you ---> Astrology understands your personality is a complex, integrated structure. It's composed of different parts, different Inner Selves, that theoretically work together as a whole. Of course that's not always true. (I called it "theoretical" for a reason.) Inner conflict is a huge part of being human.

The House of the Rising Sun -- In a horoscope, it defines your character ---> The house the Sun occupies ---> The horoscope is divided into twelve different sections called houses ... which represent the twelve major divisions of life interest and experience. The house in your Natal Chart which contains the Sun shows the area of life and the kind of concerns where you want attention -- and where you pay a lot of attention, where you want to be noticed, where you want to be considered important.

The Sun & Moon in Astrology

* The Sun and Moon in Your Natal Chart -- Two powerful descriptions of you ---> Your two most important Inner Selves ---> Even in the more subtle, introverted signs, like Scorpio, Virgo and Pisces, The Sun's energy in your horoscope is considered powerful, masculine and demonstrative. Its expression can be overwhelmed and disguised by other factors or afflictions in the horoscope, but not easily.

* The Luminaries in Astrology -- The Sun and The Moon -- What are they ... and what's the difference? ---> The Light-givers ---> The Luminaries -- This term refers to The Sun and The Moon in a horoscope -- distinguishing them from the other common elements ... the eight known planets, excluding the Earth. The term luminary suggests The Sun and The Moon are both sources of light ....

From the Blogs, Ezines and Elsewhere

From EDA: The Sun ---> Everyday Astrology ---> March 15, 2020 ---> The Sun ---> Just as the Sun is the physical center of our Solar System, so the Sun in Astrology is the center of attention in a horoscope. It provides a starting point for an Astrologer to begin interpreting the essential qualities of a person's character or a situation -- whatever that particular chart happens to examine. The pivotal energy of a person or event starts there -- with the Sun's sign & location.

From EDA: The Sun and The Moon ---> Everyday Astrology ---> March 30, 2020 Sun & Moon ---> The Sun in your horoscope represents your Essential Self, the inner part of your character that defines your personality and ego. It is your basic identity to the world as your life unfolds. Arguably it also describes your spiritual purpose ... your sense of who you are and who you are meant to become. It is your present self reaching into the future as you develop your potential and talents.

From EDA: Sun in Virgo ---> Everyday Astrology August 24, 2019 Sun in Virgo ---> The Sun has moved into Virgo, joining Mars and Venus who crossed the line a few days ago. Mercury will be there on Thursday. This puts the same incredible emphasis we had last month in Leo ... in Virgo for the next several weeks. I wish I could be more excited about it. There is something so pedestrian about Virgo. I know it's necessary. (Really, really necessary!!.) But it's so unrelentingly dull ... unless, of course, you are one.
