Born on August 22 (I won’t disclose the year), I was born on the cusp of the sun signs Leo and Virgo. I chose to enter this world at 7:15 am on that particularly hot day. That said, I was born almost a full four weeks premature; had I been born on my original planned date of September 22 (or even twelve hours later, for that matter), I would have been fully ensconced in the life of a Virgo.
For years, I could never understand why, if not truly a Virgo, I acted so much like one? I’m a perfectionist, extremely detail-oriented, and a hypochondriac to the extreme. My hair is not a mane of flowing locks, I suffer from severe stage fright, and I prefer to go relatively unnoticed. Once I learned a bit about astrology and took a peek at my chart, it occurred to me: not only was my Ascendant in Virgo, but my moon was in Virgo!
While your sun sign can be a great tool to understand your outer traits and talents, your moon sign has insight into your inner workings, and what keeps you going on a deeper level. The key to a healthy and happy life lies in balancing these two forces in your life.
For me, I find that when I get upset, I tend to clean. Now, my house is already Virgo-spotless, but I find myself going through old files, donating unworn clothes, and just generally getting rid of unused and unnecessary items.
How do you feed your moon sign?
