Virgo, the virgin, rules the sixth house of health. It is an mutable earth sign of negative polarity and is affiliated with the planet Mercury. Virgos are grounded and practical in their earthiness but have the flexibility of their mutable quality to keep them from getting stuck. Still, Virgos can be considered sticky, in that they do enjoy having things a certain way and want it done to the Nth degree. The sixth house is about service as well as health and certainly Virgos are here to serve. Virgos enjoy logic and love being practical and clever at all projects they undertake. They will fact-find with pleasure, research with delight and are geniuses with detail. They play with words and bandy about ideas with childlike enthusiasm and no task is too complicated for these pedantic questioners. In the workplace they are a great asset and can be relied on to get things done the right way, the first time.
Virgos love helping others – they are truly a service oriented zodiac sign – and they love a job well done. Virgos have the tenacity to see a job to completion and usually with very little mishap, because they will have researched every angle of the task and scrutinized any pitfalls long before any possibility of demise. Downfall is not an easy word for the Virgo who relies on precision and logic rather than emotion or ego. Virgos and work go hand-in-hand. In a typical workaholic way, Virgos can feel very uneasy if not delving into a project that is challenging, productive and motivating. Virgos are willing to work for their materialistic gains and since they love fine furnishings and a fully equipped gym, they are willing to work hard. They love playing an integral role in an efficient organization. And with Mercury as a guiding force, any job that includes words and communications is perfect for them.
Virgos are blessed with a social behavior that is intelligent, orderly, practical and sociable. Preferring to keep life simple and uncomplicated, Virgos are perfectionists with a little OCD, and can easily be stressed if they're juggling too much at home or at work. They often go with the most logical or sensible choice when forced to make decisions and sometimes need a little extra inspiration to get creative and think outside of the box. Mercury’s influence over Virgos enables them to be great communicators. They are quick thinkers, analytical, precise and succinct. They can seem to be a bit nit-picky or over-critical, but it is only because they are exacting with themselves and extend that to others. Like Mercury, Virgos are bundles of energy, with a tendency towards being nervous and fidgety.
Frankincense oil helps the stressed Virgo soothe their mind while fighting colds. Frankincense would benefit the Virgo personality with its ability to clarify thinking and refresh one who is constantly analyzing and introspective. Use it to slow your racing thoughts and calm your pounding heart. Frankincense is also known to aid in the digestion process, something that many Virgos also see as health issues in their daily life.
