Each of the planets in our horoscope represents a certain type of energy that flows within us. A very specific type of energy that shapes different aspects of our personality.

The science of astrology is built on the assumption that we, as human beings are a mini-representation of the universe itself, and that we experience the influences of all 10 planets within us – through our life and consciousness.

Now think about the role of the Sun in our solar system – it is the only celestial body that shines with its own light. It is the ultimate force that gives light, warmth, and life to ALL other planets and forms of life.

It is a never-ending creative source that nourishes and lights up the whole solar system!

This is why, although it is correct when modern astrologers say we need the whole natal chart drawn up in order to fully understand and comprehend one’s personality, we cannot belittle the significance of the Sun, and put it on the same plane as our Moon and Rising signs.

The correct approach would be to understand the more profound meaning of your Sun in Virgo placement and to consciously strive to live by its higher manifestations.

sun in virgo

1. Each planet in aspect with the Sun represents energy or archetype, associated (in a positive or negative way) with the development of our individuality, personality and self-expression.

We need to find constructive ways to incorporate this energy into our lives (perhaps through vocation, inherent to the same planet). For example, a person with the Sun in aspect with Neptune must in some form meet Neptune in the process of individualization. They should express the planet in the form of Neptunian career, such as healing, music or art.

2. It is possible to feel the aspects of the Sun through other people in our lives (especially in oppositions). For example, a man with the Sun in opposition to Saturn will see others as limiting and blocking.

Ultimately, we will have to embrace and integrate these qualities, which we usually project on others.

3. The nature of the planet, aspecting the Sun, colors the problems with the father and the animus.

Virgo is one of the practical, earth signs. But perhaps the most important, distinguishing feature of Sun in Virgo people is their pursuit of perfection.

The Virgo sign itself is not characterized by great creativity (like Leo, for example) or a desire for leadership positions (like Capricorn). Its main task is to improve and perfect what has already been created.

However, in order to be able to successfully perform this function, Sun in Virgo people by birth have extremely high criteria and standards both when it comes to themselves and in relation to everyone else. This quality allows them to see even the smallest imperfections in everything that surrounds them.

Something that a fire sign would not pay any attention to can become a major problem and a source of concern for a Sun in Virgo person. Fire signs usually give the initial impulse and creative idea to begin the creative process, while its completion and so to speak its “grinding” is being finished off by earth signs.

Virgo, of course, is the most famous specialist in this regard. Thanks to the Virgo energy, a much more refined and fully finished end product is achieved in all fields of life.

Unfortunately, there is a flip side of the coin. The greatly elevated standards of Sun in Virgo people lead to a number of problems both on a psychological level and in their relationships with others. First of all, when someone raises the bar too high at the outset, they are often doomed to failure.

We can gradually raise the bar higher and higher until we finally improve so much that we are able to improve an existing record. However, if we try to break the world record with our first jump, our chances of success are negligible. Most Sun in Virgo people, however, try to do just that, and then blame themselves and worry that they haven’t demonstrated good enough qualities.

Sun in Virgo Bad Traits and Personality Challenges

sun in virgo

A lot of the Sun in Virgo representatives suffer from low self-esteem and are constantly worried about the successful completion of the tasks they have set for themselves.

The same goes for their demands on other people.

Sun in Virgo expectations are often so high that it is rare for an ordinary mortal to be able to meet them.

Sun in Virgo’s portrayal in the astrological literature always mentions their tendency to experience great anxiety and apprehension, but it is almost never explained where this type of behavior stems from as well as the interrelationships that give rise to this tendency. And without the root cause, we cannot find the means to eliminate it.

In short, in order to be able to reduce the level of their nervous anxiety and to improve the overall quality of life, these people should, above all, lower their criteria for a job well done to a reasonable and acceptable level. This applies both to their own criteria and to their judgment of others.

Unfortunately, however, delving into a number of small facts and details, Sun in Virgo people can easily miss the big picture and not notice how these details fit into it.

In other words, as they delve deeper into the construction of the individual tree, they may forget that their main goal of research is the forest.

Among Sun in Virgo representatives, there are also those, who want to show everyone around how much they are capable in any field.

This ostentatious boast, however, is simply a compensatory reaction to an innate inferiority complex. Once they have realized their true value, Virgos would not need to trumpet their abilities. If they are able to see themselves objectively, they would be able to accept the compliments of others with grace and elegance, express their feelings more freely and casually, and not worry so much about everything.

Sun in Virgo Career

sun in virgo

In their career, Sun in Virgo do not have a particularly strong personal ambition. On the one hand, they are not very sure which line of behavior is optimal for them. On the other hand, they don’t like to make decisions that affect other people, because they are not confident in their decision-making.

This is usually due to the fact that Sun in Virgo lack the ability to grasp the full picture and are easily lost in the details. That is why they work best under someone else’s guidance.

They can be indispensable secretaries and personal assistants. Sun in Virgo are able to plan their boss’s schedule up to minutes and seconds, to constantly remind him of meetings and duties and to be meticulously accurate and demanding in terms of work done.

Therefore, we should not be surprised that Sun in Virgo do not know how to relax. Their mind is constantly occupied with the processing of data that requires their due attention.

They feel best in an environment that puts them under constant pressure, constantly having to meet deadlines, think, study, educate, act, calculate, etc.

It can even be said that during long periods of inactivity they simply fade and do not feel at ease.

And yet, Sun in Virgo will benefit greatly for if they learn to switch off their brain from processing information by adopting relaxation and meditation techniques. Although of Eastern origin, today these techniques are practiced in a modified form by millions of people in the West. The essence of meditation is the conscious exclusion of the mind from the information that is constantly bombarding us from all sides. In modern times, this is especially useful and necessary.

If Sun in Virgo people learn to spend even just half an hour every day alone with themselves, without being constantly distracted by the technological spies, invading our privacy, they would achieve remarkable results.

Sun in Virgo people would initially find it strange how they can spend half an hour of their lives without doing anything. Over time, they might realize that it was this half hour, in which, at first glance, nothing happened, was the most significant time of the day. That it was then they managed to make sense of most of their plans, systematized their thoughts, clarified their ideas and re-charged with energy.

If Sun in Virgo learn how to immerse themselves by being alone with themselves, even just for half an hour a day, without being distracted by anything, they would be surprised to see how their quality of life will significantly improve.

Virgo is an earthly and practical sign and those born under this zodiac sign usually have no problem working. They want to build and maintain a beautiful and cozy family home. To achieve this, they work from morning till night. Their standards for a beautiful and cozy home, however, are probably extremely high, so is the efforts that they put in this direction are intense. Virgo women, who have to go to work probably spend most of their free time washing, cleaning and tidying the house. That’s fine, of course, but they should not forget that part of their time should be devoted to family members.

Representatives of both sexes born with a Sun in Virgo tend to make the mistake of carrying folders of unfinished work at home from the office.

They should consciously try to spend quality time with their children and partner. These can be walks in the park or in nature, joint sports, going out together for entertainment etc.

Sun in Virgo Children

sun in virgo

Virgo’s pickiness when it comes to food is manifested early on.

Your Sun in Virgo child may surprise you with their strange preferences and this is likely to remain throughout their whole life.

Otherwise, the Virgo child is easy to raise. He or she will not cause problems and will stay calm, while you do the housework. Sun in Virgo people love order since early childhood and the toys will always be arranged after play.

Sun in Virgo children usually start speaking early, and love to chat in front of relatives, but in front of strangers they are shy and silent. When he or she goes to school, the Virgo child will become the favorite student of the teachers. Virgo children are disciplined and do their homework regularly. They quickly grasp information and have no problem with their lessons.

You just have to be careful with your remarks – in no case should you or a teacher make them in front of other children. This can suppress a Sun in Virgo child’s self-esteem and make them lose all desire to go to school.

Sun in Virgo Health

sun in virgo

Sun in Virgo people health is usually very good.

Mercury, Virgo’s ruler is characterized by great strength, youthfulness, agility and endurance. That is why Virgos have a tendency to look younger than their real age and are constantly on the move. They are well suited for diets that include fresh and healthy foods. It is recommended for Sun in Virgo to also consume foods rich in fiber.

The main problems, which these people may have with their health is related to their tendency to worry.

This is why they may develop constipation, gastritis, ulcers, increased acidity or skin rashes. All these health issues can be avoided through relaxation, meditation and rest. Often medicines prescribed by a doctor can have side effects and lead to various allergies.

A lot of the Sun in Virgo representatives are best treated with homeopathic or holistic medicine.

In order to enjoy a long and fulfilling life, Virgos need to find a balance between work, family, and social entertainment and sports.

Sun in Virgo Relationships and Love Life

sun in virgo

In their love relationships, Sun in Virgo are not characterized by a particularly strong intensity of feelings and emotions.

Even if they love someone very much, it is usually difficult for them to express themselves with special zeal and zest. A lot of them do well in their lives completely on their own. And yet, like most people, Sun in Virgo wish to have a partner next to them.

Sun in Virgo have the fame of people, who like to pick on others and constantly point out their partner’s shortcomings. In fact, they do it with the best of intentions – they just want to see their partner improve.

However, they have to understand that their partner can change only when he or she wants to and when they are willing to do so. When their weaknesses are pointed out many times, this can only have the opposite effect and undermine the stability of the connection. And undermining the relationship can have a very negative effect on the Sun in Virgo person. Such developments can further shatter their fragile self-esteem and lead to even greater internal fears and anxieties.

Sun in Virgo prefer to have someone to love and take care of. Virgos love to help others and help them improve. This is very important to them.

Often in the very beginning of the relationship Sun in Virgo belittle their own role in the newly created union. They doubt whether they are worthy of their partner. While they are still teenagers, Sun in Virgo can be perceived as a charming manifestation of shyness, unpretentiousness and modesty.

A relationship can be lasting and complete when both partners are equal and united in their efforts to achieve their common goals. Therefore, those born under the sign of Virgo must learn to give themselves a higher score.

We mentioned above that Virgos must learn to relax. This also applies to the sphere of love and sex.

They may experience an accumulation of too much nervous energy and tension when they are in the company of their partner. Some Sun in Virgo people relate to the sexual act with innate suspicion and a touch of mistrust and doubt. Thus, they are doomed to disappointment in advance.

If sex doesn’t turn out well, they say to themselves, “I knew it.” They need to understand that by approaching intimacy in this way, they create this negative situation for themselves. Whether their partner is a good lover or not, neither partner is capable to break such negativity and provide the loved one with a divine experience. An essential prerequisite for good sex is that both partners are calm and trust each other.

Since this is such a vast topic to cover, I have dedicated separate articles to it.
