To non-believers, it seems peculiar for the reasoning behind personality to be written in the stars.
These people do not support being labeled by the month of their births, nor being defined by the traits that coincide with those months. However, those that accept the "science" of astrology and the concept of horoscopes closely check their readings monthly, weekly or even daily to gain insight of their near futures.
Those that believe know that there is more to horoscopes than just fortune-telling, but those who don't will get a sneak peak with this month's exploration of the Zodiac sign Virgo.
Virgos, born between the dates of Aug. 24 and Sept. 23, are known for being reliable and hard-working with a slight hint of jealousy when it comes to love. With the ruling planet of Mercury watching over them and the element of Earth present within them, Virgos are mostly known for being ambitious, modest and dependable.
Virgos are known for their love of exercise, both physically and intellectually. A little-known fact about Virgos is that although they are always willing to help others—due to their qualities of efficiency and attention to detail—they are natural introverts who are constantly fighting the urges to remain passive and composed.
In terms of romance, Virgos are incredibly devoted to their lovers, even if that means fighting feelings of jealousy that arise throughout relationships.
The two most compatible signs for Virgos, both in friendship and in love, are the Capricorn, whois born between Dec. 23 and Jan. 20; and the Taurus, who is born between April 21 and May 21. More specifically, the Virgo's best love match with the intention of marriage lies in the Pisces— those born between Feb. 19 and March 20. On the opposite side of the spectrum, the signs that are least compatible with the Virgo are the Gemini, who are born between May 22 and June 21, and the Sagittarius, who are born between Nov. 23 and Dec. 22.
Although some people explore the traits of their Zodiac sign out of sheer curiosity, most follow their signs to know their daily horoscopes. For those that do not follow, a daily horoscope may tell someone what to expect from the day, such as successes or failures in terms of love, wealth, friendship and luck.
This month, for example, according to a reading from Indastro.com, Virgos worldwide will experience a different first half of the month, including a potential career slowdown around the fifth of Sept., and an unenthusiastic attitude towards work until the sixteenth. However, the Virgo's love life will significantly improve after the tenth and remain exciting throughout the month. The Virgo's marriage will also see improvement, including a potential gift from the spouse during mid-September.
However, Virgos are warned about the possibility of health risks for them or their loved ones until around the seventeenth.
With different views considering the legitimacy of horoscopes and Zodiac signs, it can be hard to evaluate each month's sign as a fun and interesting take on a predictable or unpredictable period of time. If the idea of Zodiac signs and star-based predictions is disregarded before it's even given a chance, non-believers may never know what interesting and potentially life-defining information is being dismissed.
