Virgo Zodiac Sign

Horoscope Traits of the Maiden

The Virgo Characteristics in Astrology

VirgoThe Virgo Zodiac sign, which is that of the Maiden, is the sixth sign of the Zodiac in the horoscope. It belongs to the element earth and the mutable quality. The Virgo horoscope sign is the character of the scrutineer, who never takes things for granted and always searches for flaws. It's the constantly inspecting mind.

     The horoscope earth element leads to a mentality focused on the material, what's palpable and possible to investigate. The mutable quality normally makes a follower, but in the case of the Virgo Zodiac sign it's more of a critical attitude that never ceases. Virgo is difficult to manipulate and almost impossible to dupe. Virgo is also very hard to please.

     The symbol of the Virgo horoscope sign, and the translation of its name, is the Virgin or the Maiden - not always the same thing, although in this framework intended to be. The most fmous of virgins is Mary, of course, although her virginity has been questioned. Undoubtedly, though, she was a maiden in the meaning of a young woman. In any case, the idea of the maiden representing the Virgo horoscope sign's traits may be the romantic notion that a woman chooses carefully her first.

     More of an archetype for the Virgo horoscope sign and its meaning, though, would be a craftsman working minutely with complicated machines consisting of a multitude of small components that need to be assembled with precision. Such as the clockmaker.

     There are three earth signs in the Zodiac of the horoscope: Capricorn who prefers working with big things, Taurus who concentrates on basic things, and Virgo who is the expert of small and complicated things. That demands of the Virgo horoscope character to be critical and pay attention to detail. It's an ability becoming a personality, which is something that can be said of most Zodiac signs.

     Those with Virgo as their horoscope Zodiac sign are born with the sun in it, between August 23 and September 22. For more about the Virgo Zodiac sign influence in the horoscope, see the links in the menu to the left and below.

Virgo Horoscope Traits

The Virgo star sign, starting when summer ends, is the scrutineer of the horoscope, with the traits of one who exam­ines everything care­fully before deciding what to do about it. To the Virgo horoscope sign, there's no detail small enough not to be considered and no effort tedious enough to be ignored. A hard worker, just as hard to please.

Virgo compatibility

Virgo Compatibility

The Virgo horoscope sign, the scrutineer, belongs to the element earth, which is that of material things and working with your hands. So do Taurus and Capricorn, but that doesn't necessarily mean Virgo is particularly compatible with them - they need to feel mutual connections and similarities. Nor for that matter is the Virgo Zodiac sign always incompatible with, say, the air signs Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius, although they are quite different.

     All the astrological traits of each Zodiac sign have to be considered when examining their compatibility. Read more about what it means to the Virgo horoscope sign here:
