Virgo is the sixth sign of the Western zodiac. It is the only sign represented by a female. Virgo is a low-intensity, female, mutable earth sign, which basically means that it runs through the autumn equinox. This makes Virgoans able to see both sides of a situation. (Other mutable signs include Gemini, Pisces, and Sagittarius.) Virgo is theoretically most compatible with Taurus, Capricorn, Scorpio, and Cancer. It is most incompatible with Gemini, Sagittarius, and Pisces. Virgos are usually neat, organized, intelligent people. They like to be busy and have order in their lives. They are usually not sexually promisicuous (Of course, this depends on other factors in their charts). Virgos are gifted with a keen analytical ability, which is a reason why they cannot get along with Pisces- these two signs are in opposition! Virgo sees the details while Pisces sees the big picture. Virgos have a servile nature and like cleanliness and health food. Virgos are seen as the "Virgin", but when these signs were named, a virgin meant "to be able to say no". Virgo was also once the sign of the fertility of the Earth.
A person's sun sign is Virgo if they are born between August 22nd and September 23rd. People born on the cusps are often jokingly called "Leegos" or "Vlibras". Lol!
Virgo is square to Gemini and Sagittarius, and in opposition to Pisces.
However, Virgo is trine to Capricorn and Taurus, and sextile to Scorpio and Cancer.
I am a Sun in Virgo/Moon in Virgo, but I am a very messy person! Although I demonstrate Virgoan characteristics, my outward personality (Aka ascendant) is Gemini, so I tend to exhibit Gemini characteristics.
