It’s finally Virgo season! It’s time to celebrate some of the coolest Virgos, born from Aug. 23 to Sept. 22. Virgos are known for being organized, creative, efficient, independent and charitable. Virgos are earth signs, which means they are also grounded and well adjusted.

You’ll find musicians who have Virgo as their sun sign to be calm, cool and collected. They keep everything well organized and always have a plan. Thus, Virgos find a home in the music industry because they work hard, fuel their creativity through their passion and spread joy throughout their talent and charitable acts.
Chrissy Costanza – Aug. 23
Our first Virgo is none other than Chrissy Costanza, the lead vocalist for Against The Current. Virgos are often known for being rather particular, and Costanza is no exception. The vocalist has an amazing sense of style that you can tell she puts a lot of time into crafting, from her clothes to the organization style of the group’s shows on tour. Costanza exudes the creativity and craftiness of a true Virgo.
Craig Owens – Aug. 26
Chiodos’ Craig Owens is the essence of a Virgo. This sign tends to take on as many projects as they can handle, and Owens definitely does that. Virgos love to be multifaceted, and their keen organization skills equip them properly to take on multiple ventures. Thus, we have Owens.
Cassadee Pope – Aug. 28
A key trait for Virgos is independence, which makes Cassadee Pope of Hey Monday accurately a Virgo. Pope’s emerging solo career in 2012 highlights her Virgo nature of being self-sufficient and creative. Independence is key for Virgos, as they often branch out on their own to pursue their own projects. When you’re working on, well, anything, you want a Virgo at the helm calling the shots because they pride themselves on their structure and independence.
Florence Welch – Aug. 28

Thus, Trohman shows off that charitable and passionate side of Virgos that isn’t always expected. He channels his organization skills and passion for social justice into his celebrity platform, and that is a Virgo to a T.
Ricky Horror – Sept. 1
Virgos value their independence and alone time, which often makes them introverted and introspective. That’s what brings Ricky Horror of Motionless In White to mind. One major thing to note about Horror is that he’s incredibly independent and keeps his social media presence minimal. Horror instead focuses on his craft. This is why Ricky embodies a Virgo—he values his independence and uses his time to work on his music.
Ryota Kohama – Sept. 4
Virgos like to change things up and often don’t just stick to one thing. That’s what makes Ryota Kohama from ONE OK ROCK a true Virgo.

Freddie Mercury – Sept. 5
Freddie Mercury needs no introduction. He’s curated his own unique style, and Queen were meticulous in perfecting their music. Every Queen song is crafted so each band member fits beautifully together, including Mercury with his flair and passion. This is what makes Mercury a true Virgo, as he’s a stylistic, passionate perfectionist.
Jimmy Urine – Sept. 7
Multiple streams of income is the name of the Virgo game. Jimmy Urine keeps up with the trends and immerses himself in new projects all the time. Thus, Urine is a true Virgo in that he diversifies what he’s doing and is constantly looking for ways to get more involved. If there’s something involving programming, animation or rocking out, Urine‘s on it. Listeners know him best as the co-founder and genius programmer of electro-punk wiseguys Mindless Self Indulgence. Urine also voiced a character for the pixelated animation series X-RL7 and completed a faux British gangster movie soundtrack with System Of A Down‘s Serj Tankian (under the name Fuktronic). Over the years, Urine’s also done musical projects for Marvel and appeared in Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2. Like any true Virgo, the dude is in motion, constantly
Brendan Kelly – Sept. 8
Did someone say multi-talented? That’s definitely Brendan Kelly from the Lawrence Arms because not only is he a musician but also a writer, television host and the keeper of the Nihilist Arby’s Twitter account. Virgos are known for being organized, and it’s not uncommon to see them as teachers or in office jobs. However, Virgos are also incredibly talented and can be found in creative careers, too. Thus, Kelly’s ability to be creative and hardworking is innately Virgo as he tackles multiple different kinds of jobs.
Mikey Way – Sept. 10
Speaking of a talented Virgo, look no further than Mikey Way of My Chemical Romance. After My Chem broke up, Way pursued other projects such as acting and creating the comic book Collapser with Shaun Simon. Virgos love changes and often embrace new projects with open arms. Way handled each change beautifully and channels his talent straight into them, making him the epitome of a Virgo.
Patty Walters – Sept. 12
Multitasking looks effortless when there’s a Virgo involved, and Patty Walters from As It Is does exactly that. Walters has taken to content creation outside of music and finds a way to blend those two passions through his YouTube channel. As Walters branches out into other creative outlets, it’s clear he’s a true Virgo in every sense of the word.
Skyler Acord – Sept. 12

This is the essence of Virgo energy, as this sign is eager to teach and share their talents with the world.
