There are misconceptions about Virgo due to the fact that today we think of “Virgins” as spinsters or prudes. When the symbolism of astrology was decided, however, Virgins were considered the most attractive and desirable of all women. Indeed, this old idea of “Virgin” is what we should expect from a sign where Mercury, a beautiful planet of youth and symmetry, cultivates the earth element, an element of fertility and beauty.
