The sixth astrological sign in the zodiac, Virgo, is the symbol for the persons who were born from August 23 to September 22. Virgo is an Earth symbol and is ruled by the planet Mercury. Virgo is classified as a mutable sign, i.e. a classification which possesses characteristics from both fixed and moveable symbols. It is represented by The Virgin. People who are born under the Virgo zodiac are highly analytical, observant, helpful, reliable, precise and independent. The weakness of Virgoans lies in their being too skeptic, fussy, inflexible, cold and interfering.
