Virgo is symbolized by the Virgin. You're flexible, yet practical. You get a kick out of organization and anything that puts your analytical mind to use. Watch out for perfectionism! Virgos feel and operate best in a position in which they can help others. Virgo is the sixth Sign of the Zodiac, to be exact, and that's the way Virgos like it: exacting. Those born under this Sign are forever the butt of jokes for being so picky and critical (and they can be), but their 'attention to detail' is for a reason: to help others. Virgos, more than any other Sign, were born to serve, and it gives them great joy. They are also tailor-made for the job, since they are industrious, methodical and efficient. The sense of duty borne by these folks is considerable, and it ensures that they will always work for the greater good.

Virgo is represented in modern Astrology by the Virgin, although this association should not be taken literally. Rather, Virgos tend to take on some of the qualities of a Virgin, things like modesty and humanity. Some might consider them repressed, although Virgins would argue that it's a noble quality, as opposed to a negative one. Most of all, Virgos enjoy indulging their practical and logical side and poring over their projects to the nth degree. To say these folks are good at fact-finding almost understates the case, since Virgos revel in their exacting (some would argue pedantic) behavior and are a whiz with minutiae. Virgins are an asset in the workplace as they can be counted on to get things right the first time, every time -- and no detail will be overlooked. They are also balanced and fair in their assessments in keeping with the Mutable Quality assigned to this Sign.


The Element of Earth is attached to the Signs Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn, and it also rules the Second, Sixth and Tenth Houses. All the earthy metaphors are appropriate here: salt of the Earth, feet firmly planted on the ground and so forth. Those graced by an Earth Sign in their horoscope are practical, grounded and dependable. These folks aren't taking big risks, much preferring a sure thing.

Much like the Elements are considered the building blocks in nature, Earth Signs are the builders of the zodiac. To these Signs, creation is a tangible proposition. Whether it's building jobs or homes, or creating comfortable rooms within that home through the acquisition of possessions, Earth Signers are about all what is solid around us. Those influenced by this Element feel best once they have accumulated a goodly number of worldly possessions. The risk inherent in this, however, is that these individuals may become greedy and far too materialistic.

The Element of Earth also confers a sense of duty, responsibility and reliability to those in its sphere. These are the people you can count on to be there when you need them. Those influenced by Earth also tend toward caution and conservatism, in both desire and approach. That said, they are sensualists, certainly in that they appreciate a good meal and fine wine better than anyone else.

The logical mind of an Earth Signer is always appreciated. In keeping with this measured approach, these folks also display considerable recuperative powers. On the flip side of things, however, those supported by Earth may be so caught up in their objectives that they might overlook the feelings of others. It is a big picture, after all, but these folks may be more concerned with the finish line than the journey they are taking.

Earth Signs are dependable, practical and conservative, yet fairly materialistic. They have their feet on the ground but their eyes on the prize.


A Mutable Quality is attached to the Signs Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces. The Mutable Houses are the Third, Sixth, Ninth and Twelfth; if a horoscope shows a preponderance of Planets in these Houses, its energy is weighted toward mutability.

Mutable Signs know how to go with the flow. They are adaptable and flexible and can change their form of expression to whatever a situation requires. Standing their ground is of little import to Mutable folks. These people would much rather conform to the norm, so long as their doing so will help the greater good. Luckily, Mutable individuals are versatile and find it quite easy to change. Consider them the chameleons of the Zodiac, since they can take on varied personae.

Mutable people are blessed with a tremendous resourcefulness. Talk about making lemonade out of lemons! They know how to squeeze that last drop of juice and make things better in the process. Those influenced by a Mutable Quality in their horoscope also enjoy learning, play fair and are diplomatic and well-liked by others. To their further credit, they are sharp, sympathetic and can see (via a sixth sense?) the essential elements of a situation. At times, however, their desire to please everyone can get them into hot water. They may come across as wishy-washy, inconsistent and downright duplicitous. All this in the name of aiming to please!

The beauty of mutability is that those possessing it are flexible, versatile and highly resourceful. These folks are quick to help others and are selfless in the process. While they may occasionally stretch themselves to the breaking point, they know how to bounce back.

The Sixth House

House of Health

The Sixth House is commonly referred to as the House of Health. Implicit in maintaining good health is the ability to cope in the face of adversity, and this theme rings truest in the Sixth House. As human beings, we naturally have shortcomings. What will we do with them? How will we react in the face of a personal crisis? Crises, illnesses and reversals of fortune are all part of our Earthly trek. How we confront these situations and deal with the lessons they invariably teach us helps to define the person we become. Our fears may hold us back, but if we can meet them head-on and come out stronger on the other side, we may learn the valuable lesson of service or what our life's work should be. Work and service are central to the Sixth House. The focus here is on employment (employers and employees), training, those who serve us (along with those we serve) and those who depend on us. Keeping ourselves strong throughout these efforts is also important here, which is why this House further focuses on health (good and bad), diet, fitness and hygiene.

Essential to the work we do in life is the work we do on our self. Duty, responsibility and personal growth all contribute to the creation of a fully-realized being. We work for others as well as for ourselves; we are at service to those who need us, including our own being. There will be times when crises of health or faith will stand in the way of our best self. At those times, we must endeavor to heal ourselves (again, the focus of this House is on health) so that we can return to the work of realizing our sum potential, of serving our world.

The Sixth House also addresses the daily dailiness of life: what will I wear today? Do I need a haircut? Has the dog been fed? These simple matters keep our engines humming and enable us to do the more important work of our choosing. It's a patchwork quilt: the ability to serve others in health and through work which is both valuable and fulfilling.

The Sixth House is ruled by the Sign Virgo and the Planet Mercury.

Mercury: Planet of Communication

Mercury, much like the winged messenger of the gods, comes in on feather-light wings and commands us to speak. Communication, intellect and awareness are all within Mercury's domain, as are logic and reasoning, our manner of thinking, and how we create and express our thought processes. A mercurial nature brings to mind restlessness and motion. Rat-a-tat-tat -- things happen fast here. Mercury is about a quick wit, quick thinking, possibilities, opinions, reasoning and the ability to rationalize things. Mercurial energy can be good or bad, but it will certainly be energizing! This Planet also prompts us to move from one thing to the next and to get answers on both a physical and psychological level. Further, Mercury's energy is both dexterous and perceptive.

Mercury is about short trips: a visit to a neighbor or a friend across town, the workaday commute, a weekend getaway. Siblings, and transportation in general, are also within Mercury's realm.

Speaking, writing, books, online communications and learning are all within Mercury's domain. This Planet implores us to express ourselves often -- and well. When Mercury goes retrograde (the appearance of traveling backward), however, our communications will be challenged.

Mercury is never more than 28 degrees from the Sun; it takes about 88 days to complete its orbit of the Sun. It is neither masculine nor feminine energy and assumes the gender of the Sign it is in. It rules both Gemini and Virgo and the Third and Sixth Houses.

Virgo Beauty Profile

Sweet Virgo. You get so tired of reading about how good you are, right? Just once you'd like to hear how secretly bad you are. Well, when it comes to beauty, that's just not the case. Lurking behind your mask of perfection is ? even more perfection! You carry yourself with such dignity that it would seem something sinister MUST be going on behind the scenes (you've got to wonder how Sophia Loren still looks so amazing!). Really, though, Virgo, it's just a well-regimented beauty routine and diligent good grooming.

It's this Mutable Earth Sign's natural dedication to the small details that keeps you looking so stunning. Your vanity or medicine cabinet is well stocked, as you have a product for everything! Your nails are to die for, and your skin is blemish-free. You pride yourself on keeping up appearances, and delight in name-brand cosmetics that withstand the test of time and trends. Motivated as you are to present a perfect female image, you don't skimp on quality, but quantity is another story.

You prefer light, feminine scents and soft, muted earth tones. Your beauty comes from your dedication and reverence of perfection and of beauty itself, as well as your pure-minded yet realistic attitude toward life.

Virgo Career Profile

Need a quick fix? Call a Virgo. Those born under this Sign simply love to analyze and bat things around and are bound to come up with some answers. The mental, smart Virgo is a talker and a helper and likes to facilitate solutions as a service to others. Even so, Virgos crave independence and a space of their own, so don't expect all their cards to be laid on the table -- some things are best kept private.

Members of this Earth Sign are forever realistic and will set practical, achievable goals for themselves and the others on their team. Virgos are task-oriented and highly organized, a very loyal colleague and often the conscience of their group. They will get things done but are often reluctant to take the credit! The Virgo's perfectionism can often lead to nervousness and ill health, so a bit of balance, the yin with the yang, is a lesson well learned.

If there's one thing a Virgo can do (and they can usually do plenty, thanks to their strong work ethic), it's create a winning team. Their discerning eye and discriminating style is hard to beat. Virgos find it easy, and a pleasure, to be the thinker, problem-solver, organizer and supporter of the team. It's important for them, though, to take care of themselves as well! All work and no play can make anyone a dull boy. When Virgos remember to criticize less and emphasize (the positives) more, a lot can be accomplished.

The Virgo office is (what else?) highly organized, with a slew of computers and other electronic gadgetry for maximum efficiency. Slobs should definitely hang out elsewhere. When a car is required, a midnight blue Mercedes that purrs like a kitten is both elegant and reliable. If it's time to talk business, take the Virgo out for a light salad in a squeaky-clean restaurant, and you're bound to get results.

Virgos are well suited as chemists, doctors, investigators, nutritionists, managers and entrepreneurs -- veterinarians, too, the better to help a pup in need.

Virgo Fashion Profile

Every night before bed, Virgo, armed with a can of starch, can be found dutifully slaving over the ironing board. You take good care of your clothes, and they return the favor. A minimalist by nature, you sniff at trends that require pants so big you need to hold them up. As well, you disdain any clothing you can't move in. The thought of girdles makes you laugh outright. Price is important when you're picking out this season's wardrobe. You would never go to the sales rack to buy something under par, preferring instead to spend more for better quality. When you leave the house, you're wearing traditional styles with pleats ironed to a perfect angle, and there is not a speck of lint to be seen. The outfits you buy are simple, tailored to fit and will last a lifetime.

For fun the normally conservative Virgo might give in and wear a crop top to display a belly of which they can be truly proud. With hair in a bun, or pulled back in some other neat, out-of-the-way style, you fit in naturally with every season's trend. Nothing but earth tones for your closet. Natural colors and fabrics in browns and beiges fit you just fine. Not given to wearing much jewelry, you might try out a sardonyx, the earthier member of the onyx family, to add that bit of glamour without insulting your skin tone

Fave Label:Calvin Klein
Would Look Good On:Cameron Diaz

Stable Virgo likes mint, parsley, vanilla and herbs in general. They will want a meal that is served or created in an orderly fashion and is not missing any key parts. They will have good taste when it comes to either making or consuming a meal.

Virgo Friendship Profile

If you ever need a designated driver for a night on the town, Virgo is the one to call. Not only will they show up for any and every important occasion, they'll be early enough to take care of last minute details and put everything in order. The Virgo is the most helpful friend you'll ever have. They'll help you work out at the gym every day, they'll help you remember not to gorge on junk food, they'll remind you to brush your teeth at least twice a day, and they're there to assist in the planning of the minute details of your life. All this helpfulness might drive you batty. At the same time, if you ever actually do need something, Virgo will be right there for you. They give excellent advice and are fast on their feet in crisis situations. Their practical outlook will help you through the rough times, so long as you don't embarrass them with any big displays of emotion. If you can handle your Virgo buddy jumping up to do the dishes as soon as dinner is over, you'll have a loyal, intelligent and interesting friend for a very long time.

Virgo: Karmic Life Lessons

Pisces is called the Poet of the Zodiac for its dreamy, impressionistic view of the world, its romantic, idealistic ways and desires. As ruled by Neptune, the Planet of Illusion, those born under the Pisces influence tend to live inside their own minds a great deal of the time and have a largely subjective point of view. Pisces is deeply emotional and intuitive, often even psychic; it is a loving, giving and rather passive Sign with a real sense of the mystical side of life. Pisces has tremendous resources of empathy and compassion for others; the trouble is, with so much trouble remaining objective, Pisces may give far too much of itself to someone who is simply playing on its sympathy. This is Pisces's first Karmic task: To erect solid boundaries as a prevention against allowing all personal energy to be drained by serving others' needs, filling up others' voids and playing into others' sob stories.

All this nervous attention to detail can leave Virgo itself feeling a bit harried at the day's end. The Sign of Virgo rules the stomach and digestive tract; have you ever developed a stomachache just from worrying too much? That's how many Virgos feel all the time! They may work themselves into a self-critical, nervous frenzy and be simply unable to unwind. But what is all this focus on perfection for? Perfection isn't exactly a human trait; as humans, we tend to verge more toward chaos, or at least toward somewhere in the middle. Even Virgo -- interestingly enough, when Virgo is out of synch it might actually become quite sloppy. As do all extremes, Virgo's obsession with perfection needs balancing.

Furthermore, and perhaps more importantly, all this hyper-attention to detail may be drawing Virgo's attention away from more important matters or from larger truths. That old saying, "Can't see the forest for the trees," could easily apply to Virgo. Could this be on purpose? Virgos should think about whether they might be focusing on the details as a way to avoid the truth of the bigger picture. But they should also try not to let that suggestion send them into an over-analytical frenzy! Virgo's truly analytical mind is both a strength and a weakness. The same quality that makes Virgos wonderful accountants, lawyers and researchers may also make them think too hard about things not deserving of so much attention. Virgo must try to learn to distinguish what does merit close scrutiny and criticism (such as a public policy that hurts more than it helps) from what doesn't (such as the way your family takes off their shoes by the front door and leaves them there in a messy pile).

There are some very real health risks in never allowing oneself to relax and unwind. Virgo can be something of a hypochondriac, and hypochondria can actually lead to real medical conditions. And even if it doesn't, what's the fun of constantly worrying about possible health problems? Virgo must learn to relax and let go, which may be easier said than done. Those born under its exacting influence may have to look to other Signs of the Zodiac for help and inspiration. For example, Sagittarius is perfectly able to see that forest that Virgo is never able to see for all the trees. As the Sign of the Philosopher, Sagittarius concerns itself with the larger truths that Virgo may miss or not understand. Virgo can look to Pisces to learn to stop criticizing and start understanding the reasons behind others' shortcomings; perhaps criticism isn't the best way to help someone. And Gemini can inspire Virgo to relax and use that sharp mind for fun, not toil.

Virgo Kid Profile

The modest Virgin is not likely to get caught bouncing a check. Those born under this Sign are blessed with common sense and self-reliance and manage their money (and that of others) very well. As befits their cautious and reflective nature, Virgos like to size up a situation first, making them good business partners. These honest and trustworthy folks are also chronic worriers, so they'll definitely mind the store! A business with a Virgo involved will run like a finely-oiled machine since perfection is the name of the game.

Virgo Money Profile

The modest Virgin is not likely to get caught bouncing a check. Those born under this Sign are blessed with common sense and self-reliance and manage their money (and that of others) very well. As befits their cautious and reflective nature, Virgos like to size up a situation first, making them good business partners. These honest and trustworthy folks are also chronic worriers, so they'll definitely mind the store! A business with a Virgo involved will run like a finely-oiled machine since perfection is the name of the game.

The Virgin is also a budgeting magician, someone who knows how to live on little and still have fun. A Virgo can tell you that "some of the best things in life are free" and really mean it! Virgos are rarely big spenders, hate to borrow, and hate to lend money even more. About the only time they'll lend is to a family member in need or in a case where they're sure they'll get it back.

A regular paycheck is music to the Virgin's ears, and if it's paid weekly, even better. The vagaries of freelance work are quite unkind to the Virgo constitution, believing as they do that a bird in hand is worth a whole lot more. Let someone else play roulette with the paycheck!

The fun for Virgos isn't in spending money, it's in cultivating less tangible assets such as knowledge and friendship. Now that's golden!


As the Sign of Service, one of Virgo's favorite roles is to be of help to friends and lovers. The industrious, efficient and well-organized Virgo will rarely have trouble pulling this off, and a banquet at their hands will mean an evening of delectable treats. Ruling Planet Mercury symbolizes Communication; Virgos are possessed of an ability to reason clearly, resolve issues and take a romance to new heights. Virgo can, at times, be shy and a bit repressed, so someone who can bring them out of these depths will be rewarded with a vibrant lover. Concerned with health as they are, a doctor-nurse fantasy is the max for this Sign!

Virgo and Romance

The well-toned Virgo often has a body which is the envy of many, thanks to a healthy regimen of diet and exercise. It's safe to say that a heady game of tennis followed by a leafy salad would be aphrodisiac enough for those born under this sign. Many encounters with Virgo will be a well-choreographed ballet of excellent taste, seeing as how neat surroundings and stylish accoutrements are considered important to these folk. The level-headed Virgo is also a conciliator where romance is concerned, perhaps because being in love for them means falling hard. All that effort cannot be wasted. As a result, this perfectionist aims to please, and Virgo's lover will be one happy camper. Wise partners, though, will know that the Virgin also needs a place to call home.

Virgo in Relationships

Virgo's easygoing nature and Earth sign quality makes for a reliable and steady sort who relishes the opportunity to be helpful to their partner. The Virgin's devotedness also signals that a great deal of energy will go into making the relationship work. Those born under this sign tend to strive for the perfect relationship. The best reward for the oft-repressed Virgo is a lover who is willing to bring them into full flower, releasing a passionate and sensual soul. A relationship with a strong yet sensitive partner is one which is almost guaranteed success. The independent and never clingy Virgin may seem ultra-cool on the outside, but inside smolders a red-hot ravisher waiting to release potent charms on a deserving partner. The ideal Virgo soul mate is well-dressed, empathetic and dying to show their Virgo a good time.

Virgo in Love

A natural state for Virgo in love is to analyze the situation while exploring it deeply. This will show off the Virgin as steady, solid and far from a flirt. Virgos are much more the true romantic; they love giving as well as receiving, passion and uninhibited joy. Virgos really know how to make their partner feel special, so some heat between the sheets is likely to occur! It's one lover at a time for the loyal Virgo, who reveres a relationship blessed with total honesty lest jealousy and feelings of inadequacy come to the fore. Love comes to Virgo slowly, carefully and sweetly, and the desire to learn all about their lover makes those born under this sign ideal lovers themselves. A Virgo in love is a sight to behold, a relaxed and confident soul.

Virgo and Sex

So often, the sizzle in sex is in the details, and Virgo is a master of minutiae. The lover as perfectionist is Virgo personified: someone who will see to it that the little things are never overlooked. Virgos finish what they start in the bedroom, and this cozy chamber is likely to be a dreamy den decorated with discriminating taste. The servant in Virgo is only more than happy to be everything their lover desires; if that lover can bring out Virgo's sensual self, the reward will be a most liberated lover. A cool exterior tends to mask Virgo's wild side, often a fantasy world filled with erotica safely under wraps. The lover who can reach these sexual treats through artful seduction is lucky in love indeed.

What Virgo Needs

The striving achiever that is Virgo lusts for someone who can play in their league. Sports are often the perfect release for partners, since the Virgin adores the one who shares their love for good health and excellence. Those born under this sign want and need a strong and free lover who will draw them out and acquaint them with sexual pleasure. A partner who is secure, can take the initiative and can easily communicate sexual and romantic feelings will win Virgo's heart. If Virgo can mate with someone who'd have sex at the beach as easily as in the bedroom, it could be a match made in heaven!

With Virgo, it's all in the details and doing things right. The caring and romantic Virgin knows that the small things in life and love do matter. Couple that with an eagerness to serve, and Virgo's lucky lover is in for a wonderful ride!

Virgo Technology Profile

Virgos are often the foundations upon which plans are built, so jump into the online world full force. You may leave your tutor by the wayside as you take off to explore all of the elements. The exacting nature of Virgos ensures that you'll receive all of the data and see the Web page pictures promptly. You can edit any site or run the figures in any spreadsheet without expending much memory at all. Backing up your system and noticing all of the nuances of the Web are the type of tasks that get your attention. Your practical nature keeps your experience simple. Fact-finding expeditions encourage you to consult any and all of the experts available on the Web.

Anyone traveling with a Virgo need not wear a watch since the Virgin has an internal (and external) clock which hums to perfection. When traveling, the Virgin can jump out of bed at 7 AM, make a 7:35 train, pull into the station at the scheduled 8:32 and know that the next bus is due in seven minutes. Is this even fun? You bet, since those born under this sign are highly organized and love a routine, even when traveling. Better yet, call it a rhythm, for hitting the road with these folks will be a delicious mix of sightseeing, knowledge-gathering and good, clean fun. And heaven help the one who upsets this apple cart! Virgos love this sense of order, thank you very much, meticulously planning their trips well in advance. These folks want to experience as many things as possible and will try to fit it all in on every trip, the better to get their money's worth.

The major museums would certainly be visited in Florence, while the best Cajun bets would be savored in The Big Easy. Looks count, too, which is why the Virgin's luggage is always nice and the day's attire is both clean and pressed. Although they enjoy traveling with a partner, Virgos are also perfectly happy to hit the road alone. Whatever the case, it will be a sensible journey!
