The Ascendant and its meaning in Astrology
Discover what it means to have a Virgo ascendant and read all about your ascendant.
Mercury is the planet that rules your ascendant. To this you owe your inquisitive and open mind and your great love of learning. Moreover, it is to Mercury that you also owe your attention to your appearance, your physical condition and your nutrition. You thus lead a healthy lifestyle and follow the right path to maintain a great physical condition.
You have a pronounced tendency to chase perfection in everything you do and to look at every detail under a microscope. This leads you towards professions that require specialisation, especially to those related to the arts. You are also a powerful thinker as you excel in mathematics and the natural sciences.
You have a great memory and organise your knowledge in a systematic way in your mind, so that when you need to remember something you can recall it very easily. In your professional life, you pursue complex careers, such as information technology or applied engineering, as these jobs make the best use of your skills in classification and organisation. Your natural talent helps you to structure information and this helps in both your professional development and your social advancement and establishment.
Your love of learning has no limits or boundaries and, for this reason, you can choose any profession, from medicine and research, to those arts that require detailed skills or literature, where your imagination knows no bounds.
Your analytical skills help you to quickly and easily make sense of the confused information you are given and to retain the important details and discard the superfluous and useless.
You have a concern for perfection and cleanliness, not only of the body but also of the soul. This fact is usually manifested in your daily life through an excessive focus on clean clothes, a tidy living and work space, and in the excessive arrangement of the things around you and your daily programme. You feel lost and confused at the slightest sudden change.
You often suffer from a lack of security and self-confidence and this has significant repercussions on your personal life. You have a tendency to analyse both your feelings and those of others and this aspect of your personality blocks you from developing close relationships easily. You have high expectations from your partner and this means that you are often disappointed. The same goes for your friendships, as your caustic sense of humour and overcritical nature are often misunderstood.
