Were you born on September 11? If so, then according to Western astrology, your zodiac sign is Virgo, the sign of the Virgin. This means that when you were born, the Sun was in the stars that make up the constellation known as Virgo. Let's dive into the basics of your horoscope to understand more about your sign.

Virgo Overview

Virgo is known as "kanya" in Sanskrit, meaning "virgin." Each zodiac sign is characterized by specific traits. Here's a breakdown of the Virgo sign:

  • Sign of the Virgin: Virgo natives are intelligent and resourceful. They may experience conflicting feelings and desires in life.

  • Ruled by Mercury: Mercury represents thought, the nervous system, communication, and literature. People ruled by Mercury, like Virgos, have minds that move quickly and are hard to predict.

  • An Earth Sign: Virgo moon individuals are dexterous, thoughtful, and practical.

  • A Dual Sign: Those born under Virgo are adaptable and multi-talented.

  • A Feminine Sign: Virgo natives are receptive, sensitive, and empathetic.

  • Virgo's Preferred Gemstone: Emerald is the preferred gemstone for Virgos, but they can also benefit from green tourmaline and peridot.

Traits of the Sun in Virgo

In Western Astrology, a person's sign is determined by the position of the Sun. If you were born on September 11, you're considered a Virgo according to most people in the Western world. Here are some general traits likely to be found in a native whose Sun is in Virgo:

  • You have a strong memory: Ruled by Mercury, Virgo brings ample mental strength. You pay attention to the events in your life and remember the people who have helped or wronged you.

  • You enjoy serving others: You have a natural inclination to serve others, especially in religious, spiritual, or charitable positions. Service is a significant aspect of your personal spirituality.

  • You are skilled in science and the arts: Mercury also brings artistic gifts. You excel in writing, calligraphy, art, and mathematics. Your strong memory enables you to learn almost anything.

  • You have feminine features: As a feminine sign, Virgo is recognized by soft features. While you may not have much physical or mental stamina, you excel in empathy and emotional intelligence.

  • You can be shy: You prefer being in the background and dislike receiving too much attention. Asserting yourself in personal relationships and in the workplace can be challenging.

Virgo Careers

Virgos are multi-talented individuals who can succeed in various professions. However, they generally prefer helper roles and are rarely found in leadership positions. Recommended careers for Virgos include mathematicians, scientists, linguists, architects, researchers, teachers, writers, and journalists. Roles involving high levels of leadership and empathy, such as CEOs or counselors, may not suit Virgos.

Virgo Mantras

A mantra is a short phrase that uplifts and cleanses our mind, heart, and consciousness. Virgos can benefit from meditating with the following mantra:

  • ॐ बुद्धदेवाय नमः (Om buddha-devaya namaha)

The Vedas contain many mantras that are effective for different people depending on their unique circumstances. However, a universal mantra beneficial for people born under any zodiac sign is:

  • हरे कृष्ण हरे कृष्ण कृष्ण कृष्ण हरे हरे हरे राम हरे राम राम राम हरे हरे (Hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare Hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare)
