Intelligent, practical and ambitious sums up the Virgo.
This earth sign also is detail-oriented and always willing to serve.
This ninth sign of the Zodiac can also be critical of others, mostly because they are constantly looking for perfection in themselves and others.
They love their work. As a matter of fact, nothing comes before work in the eyes and heart of the Virgo.
Give a Virgo a job to do and, unless they are extremely unhappy with themselves and others, they will get the job done as perfectly as possible.
Virgo gets along best with the other earth signs of Capricorn and Taurus. This trio can manage to make money and have plenty of fun while doing it.

New moon in Virgo on Thursday, Sept. 5, makes it now a fine time to start a new adventure, if that is what you are considering. That includes jobs, relationships, marriages and divorces or whatever it is, the time is right for a new venture. We also have a Grand Cross in the skies involving Jupiter, Venus, Uranus and Pluto all square. This heavenly mixture warns us to stay clear of arguments of any sort, plus if you have a relationship problem this week, don’t try to solve it just yet.
Aries (March 21 to April 20) If you happen to be in a situation that is going nowhere, this is a fine time to bring it to a conclusion. Otherwise, expect the same old nonsense until you get the stamina to call it quits. A new face could enter your life and bring about some eruption in the status quo. Stay alert so you don’t miss the fun.
Taurus (April 21 to May 20) This is a great week to review your agenda and make any changes that need some work and go from there. Try thinking of change as adjustment of the situation and it might make it easier to handle. An old buddy is thinking of you and trying to get up the courage to call you. You could make the first move otherwise it will take some time.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) Events happening all around you could bring you down to earth once again. So stay alert and keep track of your long-term goals. These goals should include a new relationship that will brighten up your attitude. Here’s a word of advice: Don’t let longtime pals interfere with new friends.
Cancer (June 21 to July 20) Stay out of situations that you can’t win otherwise you will find yourself caught up in family chaos that you don’t need to deal with now. Let relatives take care of their business the same way you take care of yours. And don’t ask for any more advice. It is time to mind your own business.
Leo (July 21 to Aug. 20) Mars is now in Leo so get ready for some fun and games. Expect to be on the wrong side of an argument. So be smart and avoid that confusion by staying out of heavy discussions. Any anger you might have can be dealt with at the gym, not in a useless discussion you can’t win right now.
Virgo (Aug. 21 to Sept. 20) Making decisions now could turn out to be a minor challenge for you. So take little or no action and see what happens. An old friend could appear out of the blue and you of all people will enjoy the adventure. Although you love to plan ahead sometimes you get carried away. Slow down.
Libra (Sept. 21 to Oct. 20) Any upheaval you might feel now is only temporary and if you just adjust to the influences around you, all will be well. As you make the adjustments try to keep smiling and don’t let the little things annoy you. You are moving on and in the long run it is for your good.
Scorpio (Oct. 21 to Nov. 20) A new friend may want more than you can give right now. Ask for some patience and see what happens soon. If things don’t get better for you, it might be wise to call things off until you calm down. It’s Saturn in Scorpio that is causing the delay.
Sagittarius (Nov. 21 to Dec. 20) Life is happening fast around you now. It will continue as you get to know what it is you really want out of your current relationship. Making a big move now would not be fair to you or anyone else. So go slow and you will have the final word soon.
Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 20) The need to put the final touches on your latest deal is finally here. So get the pen and start writing. This is not the time to waste anything, including your very own money. So expect finances to flourish as you start your latest venture into financial stardom.
Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 20) Spending time on your latest obsession is good for everyone involved. After all, you plan to share the profit with your pals so stay in line. Your latest BFF is almost too wild to add comfort or security to your life. It might be smart to move on and don’t look back. A new semi-friend is due to appear on your horizon.
Pisces (Feb. 20 to March 21) If you are thinking adjustment and change, you are right on track. No more offering help when it really is not needed and the only one hurt is you. It is time to pick up the pieces and move on. No matter what you may think, it is not likely your latest friendship will continue.
