Virgo (August 23 – September 22) is the sixth sign of the zodiac, represented by the Virgin or Maiden. They are a Mutable Earth sign ruled by Mercury. Those born under this sign tend to be analytical, organized, and deep-thinking. Though often reserved, Virgos tend to find self-fulfillment and happiness when they use their knack for discerning issues to help others reach their full potential. However, they can also be perfectionists and may become extremely critical or pessimistic under pressure. By keeping an even keel, Virgos can be great friends and team members for any other sign in the zodiac.
