Virgo’s Sword

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

In Western astrology, you are a Virgo.

You are confident and quick-minded. You have keen senses and enjoy observing the world around you. However, if you meet someone just like you, you immediately dislike them and feel irritated by them. It’s like having your own cleverness mirrored back to you, and this deeply bothers you. On a positive note, your intelligence often leads you to find interest in many topics. You’re intrigued by simple things such as comments people make and complex things such as the mechanics of a computer. You discover yourself through observing other people.

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 “Metal,” also known as the Chinese character “庚.” This sign alludes to the imagery of swords and knives. It implies masculine characteristics and consists of stubborn and single-minded people. However, such people move toward their goals with wisdom and strength and possess a polite and honest nature.

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 nature as Metal describe you as The “Virgo’s Sword.” Imagine a sword carefully forged over a long period. It shimmers and shines and is incredibly sharp. This image represents your brilliant mind, intuition, and spirit of perseverance. For some, you may come across as too intense, but remember that your characteristics are a gift and will help you move through life.
