Virgo (♍︎) (Greek: Παρθένος, Parthenos) is the sixth astrological sign in the Zodiac. It spans the 150–180th degree of the zodiac. Under the tropical zodiac, the Sun transits this area, on average, between August 23 and September 22.[2] Individuals born during these dates, depending on the system of astrology, may be called Virgos or Virgoans.[3] The sign is associated with Astraea. In Greek mythology, she was the last immortal to abandon Earth at the end of the Silver Age when the gods fled to Olympus – hence the sign's association with Earth.[4] She became the constellation Virgo.[5] Virgo is one of the three Earth signs, along with Capricorn and Taurus.[6] Virgoans generally are characterized as analytical, conscientious, critical, and quiet.[7] The constellation Virgo has different origins depending on mythology. Most myths generally view Virgo as a virgin maiden[8] with associations to wheat.[9] In Greek and Roman mythology, the constellation is related to Demeter, the Greek goddess of harvest, or her daughter Persephone, queen of the Underworld.[10] Others associate it with the myth of Parthenos (meaning virgin in Greek) which explains how the actual constellation Virgo came to be.[11]
