If you were born between August 23 and September 22, you are a Virgo. Virgos love to read to learn and discover new things, especially if it's practical, logical and can be backed up with the facts.
As a Virgo, you can design, decorate and organize like there's no tomorrow. Putting all the pieces of any puzzle together is a breeze for you, so the next time your closet becomes a disaster zone, call another Virgo to the rescue.
Your ruling planet is Mercury which makes you smart and quick witted. You will add a depth of intellect to any conversation or social gathering. Knowledgeable and well informed on the latest news is something you take pride in. So when your girlfriends aren't up to snuff on the latest, you'll fill them in on all the dirt or the latest news.
Virgo's birthstone is the beautiful blue Sapphire, which energetically resonates with the Throat Chakra.
