Virgo

Definition of Virgo

Symbolized by the maiden carrying a shaft of wheat, Virgos are linked to ideas of modesty or discerning between what is right and wrong. As the 6th sign of the zodiac, it falls after Leo and before Libra. Virgos are born August 23 to September 22. They tend to be straight-laced earth signs that make great accountants, work well with systems and are very caring, often to their own detriment. They are detail oriented, always have an itinerary for your trip and have trouble finishing projects because of their need for perfection. They do well as technicians, editors, detectives and similar roles.
