Virgo seeks value, order, and perfection in the processes around them. This brings a focus on being practical, discriminating, and analytical with a natural concern with the details and how to improve the way things work.
The natural state for Virgo is to be in the flow of doing, thinking, and being. This can be achieved by absorption in work or process. Virgo is pulled out of their flow when their focus shifts towards the end product, result, or goal. When the outcome becomes the controlling factor, Virgo begins to over-focus on details and improvements and can become critical, fussy, or fault-finding. This can often create tunnel vision or delays.
It is in part to regain the experience of the moment that Virgo is pulled to selfless service, where the focus is on the doing can return Virgo back to the flow and the joy of the process.
Virgo rules the small intestinal tract, where nourishment is absorbed from food to create the complexity of our body. It is associated with work, how things work, health, repairs and improvements, analysis, and details.
The ruler of Virgo is the planet Mercury, which is related to the mind, discrimination, the senses, communication, and interaction. Mercury also rules the sun sign Gemini. Mercury expresses Gemini's interaction with the world around them. With Virgo, the focus shifts to what to do with it and the processing of that information.

The Signs: The Ancient Knowledge
The Signs: The Ancient Knowledge: is a revelation of the essence of the Signs and what they mean at the deep transformational level of the Soul. The Signs reveal the deep meaning of your Sun Sign, not only where you tend to get caught, but what frees you and takes you forward.
The Signs takes astrology back to its spiritual roots, its relationship to the chakras, and the hidden knowledge passed down from ancient times. Each Sign holds its share of that knowledge.
The Signs: The Ancient Knowledge
The ancient depiction of the Sign Virgo is that of a virgin holding a bundle of ripe wheat, gazing forwards. There is an implicit contradiction in the image since Virgo holds a sheaf of ripened wheat, yet her name is Latin for virgin.
Virgo has the choice of being attatched to past accomplishments or regaining absorption in the flow and spontaneity of doing. Virgo may seek selfless service to regain the experience of flow.
The Glyph of Virgo depicts the upper intestinal tract, where the perfection of the maintenance of the body results from re-organizing the results of digestion.
With the Moon in Virgo, there is a feeling or need for perfection through the process. Feelings and health tend to be more closely connected, with greater sensitivity to criticism. Often the mother is experienced as critical or a perfectionist.
When people with the Moon in Virgo fail to take care of their feelings, they can succumb to re-analyzing past hurts and greater sensitivity to criticism by others and towards themselves.
Mercury rules Virgo, and thus there is much greater sensitivity to the retrograde cycle.
There are two key ways that Virgo tends to set themselves up during this cycle. One way is to become tunnel visioned in approaching tasks, products, and promises. In this way, the better solutions that would reveal themselves in serendipitous absorption are lost or ignored. As a result, obvious or appropriate solutions or choices may be overlooked.
The other way that Virgo may set themselves up during the Mercury Retrograde Cycle is by not engaging their trust and acceptance, or tuning in or listening to the whole issue, and instead being attached to repairing or fixing something when it may not be the best outcome. A simple example of this can be trying to fix a television without first checking if it is plugged in.
