Virgo is an Earth sign

People of Earth signs tend to be practical, loyal, responsible, down to earth and cautious. They tend to prefer to plan things down to the last detail and to avoid unnecessary risks (they don't get a thrill from risk taking like some other signs do). They typically prefer long term relationships over one night stands, and are often more concerned with practicalities than being swept off their feet, and tend to value stability and loyalty from a partner.

The fire signs: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
The earth signs: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn
The air signs: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
The water signs: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces

Virgo is a Negative sign

People of negative signs tend to be introvert, responsible, practical, serious and more likely to be pessimistic (when compared to people of positive signs). They typically relate better to people of other negative signs (though their soulmates are typically of positive signs).

The positive signs: Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, Aquarius
The negative signs: Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn, Pisces

Virgo is a Mutable sign

People of mutable signs tend to be the most flexible and adaptable to change. They don't feel the urge to constantly create change (like cardinal signs do) or to constantly stick with a viewpoint (like fixed signs do). They're a healthy balance of the two extremes. On the negative side they can be seen as indecisive or flighty by those of fixed or cardinal signs.

The cardinal signs: Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn
The fixed signs: Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius
The mutable signs: Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces

Virgo is ruled by Mercury

Mercury represents our thoughts (a key component of which is language) and perceptions. Mercury, the messenger of the Gods is the fastest moving planet, by nature it's restless and changeable. In astrology it represents intelligence, communication, language, expression, memory, curiosity, the rational mind, perception and rational thought.

Virgo is associated with the 6th house

The sixth house represents daily tasks (work, habits, health, hygiene, self discipline, efficiency, purpose, duties). How you accomplish them, and how productive you are. Conceptually it includes related concepts such as efficiency, improvement (search for perfection), how you spend your time, diet, exercise, routine, organization and habits.

Are you really a Virgo?

If you were born on the first or last day of Virgo then it's worth noting that the signs do not neatly correspond to calendar days. You may wish to check out the articles on the Leo Virgo cusp or Virgo Libra cusp.
