♍ Virgo emoji

[ vur-goh ih-moh-jee ]

The Virgo emoji ♍ depicts the sign of Virgo, a constellation and one of the 12 zodiac signs in astrology. It is commonly used to represent Virgo, people whose zodiac sign is Virgo, and astrology in general. According to astrology, people who were born between August 23 and September 22 have Virgo as their sign. For this reason, you are more likely to see the Virgo emoji ♍ used during this time as people celebrate their birthdays.

Virgo is commonly known as The Maiden (Virgo is Latin for “maiden”). The Virgo emoji ♍ usually depicts the symbol of Virgo, which resembles a letter M with a curl. There are several suggested explanations as to what this symbol is supposed to represent, such as an M for maiden, the circular nature of karma, or the first Greek letters of the word parthenos (“virgin”).

Where does ♍ Virgo emoji come from?

The Virgo emoji ♍ was approved under Unicode 1.1 in 1993. On most major platforms, the emoji resembles the symbol of Virgo (a glyph that resembles a curled M) in white and imposed on a geometric shape. On Apple, Samsung, WhatsApp, Twitter, and Facebook, the Virgo symbol is on a purple square with rounded corners. On Microsoft, the purple square has sharp corners and is surrounded by a black outline. On Google, the Virgo symbol is instead on a green circle.

On Twitter, many people put the emoji representing their star sign next to their usernames in order to identify themselves. As is the case with all of the other zodiac signs, this is also true for the Virgo emoji ♍.

When the Virgo emoji ♍ is used, it is often accompanied by the word Virgo itself. This is likely done to help identify what the symbol means, as it may not be familiar even to fans of astrology. Virgo is commonly known as The Maiden and so the Virgo emoji ♍  is sometimes used alongside emoji that depict women and girls, such as the Girl emoji 👧 or Woman emoji 👩.
