Basic Characteristics of Sun in Virgo People
Sun is 1/3rd of your personality. The other things that build your personality are ascendant and moon signs. According to Vedic astrology, the sun is considered to be your ‘Atma Karaka’. It represents vital energy, willpower, reliability, stability, health, career, father, government, authority, dignity, name and fame.
Virgo is the Mool-Trikon sign of Mercury, where Mercury is exalted. This sign represents intelligence, practicality, analytic skills, logic, calculative ability, detailed orientation and perfection. It is also a controller of diseases because it is the natural significator of the 6th house in kalpurush Kundli.
Sun in Virgo Impact
When the sun enters the sign of Virgo, it enhances the intelligence of this sign. Wherever the sun sits, it boosts the quality of that sign, house, or planet itself. It enhances your logical, reasoning, and calculative ability. If Mercury is in good condition, then all these qualities are going to be definitely there in your personality. But you have to see the placement of Mercury in your chart.
Apart from this, the sun in Virgo makes you a detail-oriented person. You are someone with fine intelligence who turns out to be a perfectionist. Your quality of attention to detail crops up because you want everything in perfect tune. You can turn out to be a bit critical as it is easy for you to find little flaws. You are not only critical of others but of yourself too.
Sun in Virgo makes you have a reserved kind of personality. You are driven towards learning. It does not mean you are unsocial. You simply enjoy intellectual company rather than going to parties or amusements.
Sun enhances the knowledge in the house it is sitting in. So if the sun is in the 5th house, you will be highly creative.
Communication of Sun in Virgo Natives
Mercury can make you very argumentative. However, you do not argue for silly reasons. Your debate will only be on the basis of fact, knowledge and logic. This makes you a very fine debater. Since you are practical, you ask questions on rational grounds. You do not surrender to any belief unless you have experienced yourself or those are based on proven facts.
Sun in Virgo is good for writing. Mercury gives you command of communication skills, and the sun empowers this ability. Unlike Gemini, you will be inclined towards writing non-fiction most of the time. Geminis are the ones who prefer fiction. Although Mercury rules both Virgo and Gemini, they possess different traits of this planet. Gemini is the youthful side of Mercury, whereas Virgo is the serious side of it.
Play of Numbers
Virgo sun sign natives are very innovative. This combination of the sun and Virgo is highly auspicious for research work in any area.
This is also good for being in an area that is related to numbers – banking, mathematics, science, astrology, accounts, and auditing. But Mercury’s placement should be good. You can be in the government sector, particularly in these departments.
Same Sign but Different Personalities
Many people have sun in Virgo, but their personalities will differ. This is because of the placement of the sun in different nakshatras. The 3 Virgo nakshatras are Uttara Phalguni, Hasta and Chitra.
If the sun is in Uttara Phalguni, the dominance of the sun will be more because it is in its own nakshatra. Sun will give you intelligence, knowledge and at the same time, it will enhance your ego. This is a good placement for working in government jobs.
Sun in Hasta nakshatra will be impacted by the moon, as the moon rules this nakshatra. You will be a reserved kind of personality, more realistic and practical. This is a good nakshatra for becoming a researcher.
Mars rules Chitra nakshatra, so this planet will influence the sun. You will be very creative and innovative. You will have the ability to express your intelligence in a more creative manner.
Sun in Virgo: Placement of Mercury
When the sun is in the sign of Virgo, everything depends on the placement of Mercury. If Mercury is sitting in conjunction with the sun and is not combustible, it will be exalted. It will form ‘Budh Aditya Yoga’; if this happens in a Kendra or Trikona house, it is Mercury’s best placement.
If Mercury is malefic, then the strength of this planet will be reduced. The sun will also be less powerful. It may increase your susceptibility to diseases. You can also become prone to Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.
You have to abide by the policies of Mercury according to the house it is sitting in. If Mercury is weak, the foundation of that house is weak. The rules totally go against the sun, and the sun doesn’t like it.
If Mercury is in the 8th house, in the sign of Scorpio, you will go through many ups and downs in making agreements between people. You might dive into problems, have troubled relationships with your father or with law and government.
If Mercury is with the sun, then it is exalted. Your personality and intelligence will work together. You will have all the qualities of Mercury working at its highest peak.
Sun in Virgo: Problem Solver
Virgo sun sign can make you a hard-working person. You will not move from your desk until you complete the task. A part of your ego would want to dive into arranging agreements between people. You unknowingly will enter situations where people are arguing, disagreeing with each other, or are sick and need help. You are going to fix things. You are somehow forced to help others and deal with all kinds of obstacles.
Sun is only one-third of your personality. So you are never a complete Virgo. Your ascendant sign and moon sign will determine the rest of your personality. But this is not the whole thing. Your life includes many aspects. That’s what the 12 houses in your Kundli represent. Where the planets are placed, whether they are malefic or benefic, what mahadasha or antardasha is running, your nakshatra, and many more – everything has to be analyzed to reveal your life path. To have a clear picture, you need to consult a Vedic astrologer to guide you through life situations.
