Virgo is considered an earth sign and so is akin to Capricorn and Taurus. But where Capricorn is Cardinal and Taurus is Fixed, Virgo is Mutable or in older astrology terms, Flexed. It holds the position of transition between a Fixed season sign and a Cardinal season sign in the progression of the year. Virgo qualities are earthy, cold dry, melancholy, barren, nocturnal, northern, feminine, scientific and of long ascension according to Llewellyn George.
