Every year, between (roughly) August 21st and September 22nd the Sun moves through the sign of Virgo. In Western astrology*, the Sun's apparent path around the Earth is divided into 12 equal parts - the signs of the zodiac. Virgo is considered to be the sixth sign of the zodiac. Virgo belongs to the Earth group of signs: it also belongs to the Mutable group.
So what does this mean?
The twelve signs have different mission statements. Virgo wants to be efficient and organised. Your little Virgo person will love the detail on the cot blanket, the shades in colours used and the feel of different textures. In short, your little Virgo is unlikely to miss anything inherently knowing that only be being aware of everything will they eventually be able to out things together 'perfectly'.
Just how good your Virgo baby is at getting what it needs will depend on the position of the Moon and the other planets at birth. These factors will help determine the degree to which your Virgo baby will fulfil his of her ambitions.
You can help:
Your Virgo baby will appreciate the effort you put in to creating routine with everything in its own time and space. He or she won't like mess and will reward you with smiles and chuckles when you get things 'just right' - which probably means everything clean and tidy and in its rightful place.
Though Virgo is one of the Mutable signs of the zodiac - the implication being that those from this group are adaptable and versatile: the Virgo babies' ability to adapt to changing circumstances depends so much on whether basic routines can be maintained. Your Virgo baby might test your management skills. One of the greatest gifts you can bestow on your little Virgo is to teach that things going wrong doesn't have to mean catastrophe.
Virgo is 'ruled' by Mercury, which means that those born under this sign seem particularly sensitive to the apparent orbit of that planet. Mercury is associated with the nervous system and it's likely that your little Virgo will be sensitive to atmosphere. Your Virgo baby will soon pick up on your anxieties and will take comfort when you find ways to laugh at even the smallest of adversity.
Little Virgo people take delight in movement of all kinds. Cradle mobiles are, perhaps, most appreciated by these babies. It seems all too easy to over-stimulate these little ones though and to put their brains into overdrive. Choosing gentle colours and natural fabrics will help.
