Virgo of the Earth

According to the Chinese zodiac, you are “Earth.”

In Western astrology, you are a Virgo.

You are fascinated by people. You could sit for hours observing the subtle idiosyncrasies of the strangers passing by you. Your observational skills started at a young age. When you were a child, you likely noticed insects crawling on the ground, plants blowing in the breeze, or changes in the weather. But, the most exciting thing of all is humanity. You desire to understand people, so you pay attention. Whether you’re watching people in real life or witnessing someone via TV or media, you aim to discover all that you can through observation.

If you’ve studied astrology, you know that Western astrology classifies you as a Virgo (or, to be more precise, your Sun sign is Virgo). The characteristics of a Virgo are meticulous, organized, intelligent, and hardworking. The Four Pillars of Destiny in Chinese astrology indicate that your sign is the Chinese character for “Earth,” also known as the Chinese character “己.” This sign is like a vast field with a mild climate. Farmers work the ground, and the soft soil produces a wealth of crops. This image reveals your mission to create and nurture beauty.

While Western astrology and the Four Pillars of Destiny are two different types of divination, they are alike in one way. The laws of the Eastern and Western worlds each determine the fate residing at the moment of your birth. Thus, you can interpret your destiny from both standpoints. Viewing these two interpretations side by side gives a more comprehensive view, showing how they complement each other to provide a three-dimensional understanding of astrology.

Your Virgo characteristics combined with your essence as Earth describe you as “Virgo of the Earth.”
