Versatile, yet down-to-earth
Virgo is an Earth sign. Earth signs are grounded, receptive, focused inward and enduring. They have skills that help them survive -- even thrive -- in extremely challenging conditions. They attract experiences and "take advantage of opportunities" rather than creating circumstances independently.
Though able to act on their own initiative, they prefer to "wait and see what happens" before making any moves. They are pragmatic, dependable people who pride themselves on their common sense, their adept handling of responsibilities, and their consistent ability to fashion useful, profitable solutions to problems. In addition to Virgo, the other two earth signs are Taurus and Capricorn.
Virgo is also a Mutable Sign. The Mutable Signs are Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces. These personalities all deal with the the constructive use of ideas and information. They are flexible, easygoing, adaptable and willing to "adjust" as their way of working with the world.
Virgo energy and the characteristics of people born under the sign of Virgo are important components in the overall process of life and creation. As with all the signs, Virgo has its strong points, its sterling qualities, and its problem side.
