Virgo - Llewellyn Worldwide by juliedillon Virgo - Llewellyn Worldwide by juliedillon
Here is the next image in the series I did last year for the Llewellyn Worldwide 2014 Astrology Calendar. :)

Virgo: August 23- September 22. Mutable Earth sign. Colors: Earthy greens, browns, wheat gold and ochre. Detail oriented, rational, industrious, harvester, gatherer, organizer. They care about the group, and love to be of service to others. Less focused on interacting with others than they are taking care of others needs. Love working with their hands. Associated with harvests, crops, orchards, wheat fields, healing, teaching, sorting. Here, Virgo is taking her harvest to go share with others (originally I had her holding a list, but I like this pose better; now she has a bunch of papers rolled up in the basket on her back). This is another of my favorites out of the set :) <3

You can preorder the calendar if you like, or just check out the rest of Llewellyn Worldwide's offerings at www.llewellyn.com.

This is very pretty!  Her skin is perfect, it adds even more meaning to the idea of her having deep roots. Clap 
She totally looks like the provider.

Because that's the one part everyone already knows? I didn't mention the basic symbols on any of these illustrations, I don't think.

I love it that an African woman and slightly African setting has been used, when I consider that Africa is supposed to be the place where humans first evolved and migrated from. This is beautiful, it really is.

This is one of the coolest depictions of Virgo I have ever seen. Thank you for not making it another skinny white girl who's covering herself up, because that is hardly what Virgo represents.

A funny story about my star sign: I've always associated myself with Libra (since was always supposedly my star sign) and then all that Ophiuchus crap came out and everybody's star sign turned out to be inaccurate. It turns out that, technically, I'm supposed to be a Virgo! So I started reading about Virgo and it turns out that Virgo actually matches my personality wayyy more, ahahaha! So even though everybody kind of ignored what their "new" sign is supposed to be, I now prefer reading the Virgo horoscope. I've kind of adopted it as my new sign, I don't think you're supposed to do that, but oh well! Anyway, I love this painting. <3 The green and blue accents on the gold/earth tones are just beautiful.

Um...no that is not real astrology. First off you are STILL a Libra. Ophiuchus is not apart of the Zodiac wheel and NEVER will be. I have studied astrology for years. The guy who made it up is not an astrologer...he's an ASTRONOMER!. Meaning he only studies planets not positions in astrology. Added, westerners (America, Europe, etc) don't go by constellations. We use tropical astrology, which is completely based on the seasons.

Instead of believing him, who has no knowledge, I want to tell you that you are only Sun Sign Libra. More than likely you have Moon sign, Mercury sign, Venus sign, etc. My guess is either your Mercury sign is Virgo, or your Venus sign is Virgo. Or Asc sign. This is why you would feel more like a Virgo. Go to www.alwaysastrology.com. Then you will see what i'm talking about. :)

I know how you feel! My "new" sign would have been Capricorn, and I often feel like I have more Capricorn in me than Aquarius :)

Soragirl6 Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2013
Well Ophiuchus doesn't exist on the Zodiac wheel. Its a constellation like Orion. But it does match up with the astrology we use which is Tropical astrology. This is purely based on seasons. Each sign has a mode, Cardinal fixed and mutable, for each element. Ophiucus has no element neither does it have a mode.
So your Sun sign would be Aquarius. Of course there is more than just our Sun signs. We have moon signs, mercury signs, venus signs, mars signs, etc. So yeah, you are not just an Aquarius. You are more than likely Capricorn somewhere. In fact Neptune in Capricorn if I'm correct. So am I. :)
www.alwaysastrology.com really explains things. And if you go to "birth chart" section you can see that you have more than just your star sign.

[link] It might help to know your birth time. Look at your birth certificate (not necessary)

Thank you, I know, I did my research. ;) As you'll note we did not include Ophiuchus in this calendar, for that reason. And yes, I have thoroughly gone through my birth chart in the past. But thanks!

Thats because your Venus sign might be Capricorn or your Mercury sign.

I really enjoy how you have depicted some of the signs as people of color. I know that's an odd compliment but when the majority of art that I see everywhere has either white or oriental people, its a nice change of pace. So thank you? Also these are beautiful!

Hmm, I like how you have incorporated slight grey and dark blue shades, mainly in the flowers :p (as grey and dark blue are also associated with Virgo). The browns and ochre are just amazing in this masterpiece, and I love how you are representing Virgo as an African wheat sorter, rather than the typical white virgin representation <3 By the way, there is this great website on zodiac colours, depending on the day you were born, and their meaning : [link] It's really, really interesting and helps you learn all colours associated with a particular sign :)
