Virgo Rising—Virgo Ascendant

         Virgo rising symbolizes that the development of efficient methods, techniques, and skills is very important to you. Looking for perfection everywhere makes you aware of every imperfection, and you can be very self-critical as well. With your power locked up due to Leo on the twelfth house cusp, you have a greater sense of power than you can express. This can result in feelings of inferiority, and the lesson of Virgo rising is in humble service to others. Virgo's greatest expression comes through the patient, willing service of others: here you can get beyond yourself and the nitpicking and criticism. The routine jobs with endless details can be very satisfying with this end in mind. The house your Mercury is in shows experiences necessary in developing self-awareness and your expression as an individual. Mercury's sign and aspects will indicate your ease or difficulty in doing this.

         You look a lot younger (ten to fifteen years) than you are, since this ascendant is ruled by Mercury the god of youth. Your mind is practical, methodical, and alert. Your verbal skill and attention to detail is obvious to all who meet you. Sometimes it seems as though experiences get by you, and, like a virgin (Virgo), you're not even touched by them. You need to learn to really digest your experiences and make them your own. You're quick of body, high strung and often nervous, so you may be lean or wiry. Virgo is the sign of discrimination, but taking yourself and others to task over every little detail can leave everyone (including yourself) begging for mercy. It's important to balance the criticality of Virgo with the compassion of the opposite sign, Pisces. Be aware of carrying around negativity that comes from a feeling of inadequacy, particularly over not being perfect in your own eyes. You are careful, precise, and come across as a caring and responsible person. Your appearance is usually refined and neat, and you dislike that which is coarse or crude.
