VIRGO IN RELATIONSHIPS
ROMANTIC: Virgo’s cool, analytical approach often masks a lack of confidence in their own desirability. They often express their true feelings for others in practical ways.
FRIENDSHIP: Communication is all-important. Virgo friendships usually involve a fair amount of co-counselling and mutual advising.
FAMILY: Virgo often assumes the role of helper within the family, and can end up feeling like a doormat. Learning to say No is a very important lesson for them.
PROFESSIONAL: Virgo’s organisational skills are an asset but their tendency to worry about small details can slow things down.
KEY RELATIONSHIP: Virgo always likes to feel useful so their key relationship often involves work or some kind of service.
THE MUTABLE EARTH ELEMENT OF VIRGO
The 3 earth signs Taurus, Virgo & Capricorn are practical, sensible, methodical, steady and they prefer to do things in their own time. They can be stubborn and overly materialistic. Earth signs tend to prioritise stability, status and physical comfort.
The quality of the 4 Mutable Signs Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius & Pisces is flexible which, combined with the moveable earth element of the 6th zodiac sign, results in energy that is practical and adaptable. Virgoans are excellent multi-taskers and prefer to be kept busy but they do have to be careful not to give themselves too much to do.

Note: Your Zodiac Sign refers to which astrological constellation the Sun appeared to be in on the date of your birth. Each sign lasts for about 30 days, starting from around the 21st of each calendar month. If you were born close to the cusp of one sign and the next, you will need to check your year of birth for which date and at what time on that date, the Sun moved signs.
