Virgo is an even, hence female sign. It is of earth nature and dual/common mobility. It is long ascension and is strong during the day time. Its direction is south. Its prakriti/temperament is vaat/airy.

Virgo is the sign of Mercury, which is the fastest planet in the solar system and in Vedic astrology, barring Moon. It represents the abdomens and stomach area of the kaal purusha.

Consider the term Mercurial – it means volatile, impulsive and quickness in changing mind. There is a sense of restlessness & excitement in the persons who are under the influence of Virgo. Virgo persons are more practical than their Gemini kins. They are also very quick in mental calculations and have a money-making and profit-making instinct.

Virgo persons are sensible and practical and they prefer wisdom to wealth. There is a desire to save money and keep a portion of it safe for use during a rainy day. Virgo borns are logical in their approach and very meticulous in their work. They are likely to be accountants or someone handling money and yet be a little distant from it.

They are compulsive cleaners and prefer a home where everything is right in its place. They expect this from the other people in their home environment.

Virgo persons can suffer from nervousness as they are very sensitive. The discipline in approach may become compulsive and this may make Virgo borns overworked, without the associated rewards.
