Your sign’s ruling planetary influence comes from Mercury, but as you were born in the third Decan, or part, the sign, you receive a generous helping of Venus’s influence as well. Mercury’s power is mirrored in your sharp mind and communication skills, while it is Venus that can be linked to your sensitivity and appreciation for art/beauty. This unique planetary combination makes you more sensitive and artistically inclined that the other Virgo Decans. You will always be able to find the beauty in all you encounter and similarly, this allows you to easily experience love for art and people. At the same time, your strong emotions can leave you quite vulnerable. It is only natural to care about how others feel about you, but you must put effort into not letting it affect you too heavily.
