August 23 to September 22
Virgo is an Earth Sign
Analysis is the hallmark of this sign. Some of the most problematic though accomplished people are born under this sun sign. Mercury could be responsible because it makes hasty people even more hype, whereas a more steady approach would reap dividends. The sharp Virgo mentality usually results in extremely logical people who at the same time are skilled talkers. Of course there is a tendency to be verbose and wring a topic dry. The average Virgos is well aware of how to extract information from people, situations and retain that information without too much effort. The true picture of the situation at hand is accurately analysed. Virgos are inquisitive rationalizing facts. More often than not their memories are outstandingly sharp.
It is the virgin that characterizes this sign, though not quite literally! Virgos like being the 6th and moist exacting sign of the zodiac. People often scoff at their total focus on detail and the little nitty gritties, but this is usually done with the purpose coming to the aid of others. Serving others does give them true joy and the fact that they are methodical, hardworking and efficient to boot is an additional help. An overriding sense of duty spurs them into working for the good of the majority. Virgos might seem somewhat inhibited, but they themselves would prefer to look on it as a positive rather than negative trait. Primarily Virgos have a thorough enjoyment of practicality and logic. Fact finding is another facet that fascinates them, though this fascination with details could make them seem somewhat pedantic. As professionals Virgins are an invaluable part since they can be depended on to doing the right thing first time round – without overlooking any necessary element. This sign is mutable and results in most Virgins being balanced and fair.

A dependable and reliable bunch, they are useful to have in the vicinity. Earth is their element and as a natural follow-up Virgos are the sort of people who are The Element associated with Virgo is Earth, and in keeping with that, most Virgos are not only extremely pragmatic, but absolutely the salt of the earth. There is nothing flashy about a Virgo –their preference is towards flowing with the tide and retaining a sense of humility. However Virgos do enjoy material assets too, though once again they are very picky and choosy. Some say that this is nothing but being self-centred, but they would much rather have around them only what suits them! Where their profession is concerned, this concern for the minutiae helps in the correct choice. Natives of this sign are normally practical and critical at the same time. They are aware of their own tendency to worry about practically everything, but make every effort to keep this swide of their nature under control. If unfortunately this angle of their nature goes unchecked, the result can be undesirable hypochondriacs. Almost a professional knowledge of medicine, health and hygiene is something Virgos remain very conscious about. As a career a medical profession is chosen more often than other sign – though this is a generalisation. They reason that a workout is good for their health and hence the average Virgo is more than happy to work out regularly. The benefits reaped more than compensate for any minor inconvenience. So far as the romantic angle is concerned Virgos take a less rigid stance and are very loving partners, though a tad possessive. The intestines are ruled by Virgo and so great care should be taken of the bowels. Earthy hues are soothing and a marked preference for warm yellows and tan can be noticed.
As an Earth sign, solid ground and form is an essential perquisite for Virgos. Mercury the ruling planet spurs them on to work hard towards stability. Working towards building a firm foundation is done to a large extent by organizing and analysing. A good educational background is important to the Virgo. A lot of importance is also placed on a good background. Humility and working behind the scenes with no complaints frequently causes this sun sign to unfairly miss the bus where opportunities are concerned. Virgos can draw attention to what they have to offer by confidently moving ahead. They become nonplussed if too much earthy energy is around them. Trying too hard and not seeing desired results can have the effect of turning them into stagnant nit-picking perfectionists. A predilection for security, Virgo could turn into worry warts about their work from every angle – what if they are not needed any longer …. What if mistakes are made? The only solution is accepting the fact that imperfection too is natural.
