It makes sense that the sun enters Virgo right about when the traditional school year starts.

This season is about hard work, practicality, and putting your nose to the grindstone. After leaving dramatic Leo, the sun takes a bit of a behind-the-scenes role in understated Virgo. It's time to take the fun and passion of the first few months of the zodiac and figure out how to make that work. We're talking to-do lists and pie charts here. This sense of focus and organization can veer into perfectionism and even anxiety, but if you can keep your cool (and perspective), it's the perfect time to lay the groundwork for something big.

Sun in Virgo Personality

Satisfaction is not guaranteed for the sixth sign of the zodiac. Virgos hold everything (and everyone) in their lives to the highest standard. However, to expect only tough love or indifference from a Virgo would be a mistake. Virgos want the very best for their loved ones and can be nurturing in their own way.

Positive Traits

Beyonce is a Virgo—what more is there to say? The vast intellectual prowess of Mercury is grounded in Virgo, producing an individual with such a perfecting work ethic that little is out of reach. Virgo is the (wo)man with the plan, constantly using their analytical abilities to solve problems others haven't even thought of.

Negative Traits

Virgos nit-picks on an Olympic level, but they don't necessarily express their discontent and may unfairly expect others to do better without prompting. They have very little patience for whatever they consider imperfection. Few work harder than Virgo, but even fewer are more self-doubting.
