Heads up, you're a Virgo if you're born between 23 August to 22 September.
Your Virgo And Virgo Rising Horoscope For May
A weekend away early in the month (before 9 May) is the perfect antidote to any restlessness you’re feeling. If you can’t escape, prioritise reconnecting with nature—even if it’s just eating your lunch outside instead of at your desk. From 14 May, a little extra stardust will spruce up your love life bringing sweetness and ease to your relationships (until 28 July). Gemini season shifts your focus to work (from 21 May). It’s slightly chaotic energy that makes getting a straight answer on things difficult (especially 21–31 May). Be prepared with practical ways to help manage the stress and try to remain patient. The eclipse (26 May) could coincide with big developments around home and work. It’s a lot, but Mercury retrograde (beginning 30 May) delivers the perfect opportunity to ponder big job decisions.

Virgo Personality Explained
If you are born between 23 August and 22 September you are a Virgo and belong to the Earth element of the zodiac (along with Taurus and Capricorn). Earth signs are grounded types who are typically wise, stable, sensual and trustworthy. Ruled by Mercury, Virgos are typically organised people and they are born communicators, doing well in jobs that require them to speak and write. Though they can be overly critical of themselves and others, Virgos are caring types, in touch with their humanity.
Lovers of animals, good food, equally good books and nature, you won’t often find Virgos putting their hand up to be the star of the show.
Joining the maiden (the star’s symbol) club are Beyonce, Zendaya, Nick Jonas and Keanu Reeves.
