Collapsing pre 2010 discussion

Notable People from History born when the Sun was in Virgo[edit]

Please see the discussion on the Aries talk page regarding the suggestion that the list of notable persons should only include historical names (no living persons) and should not extend beyond 20 names. Currently the Virgo list has 15 entries:

Yasser Arafat, Ingrid Bergman, Agatha Christie, Roald Dahl, Elizabeth I, Greta Garbo, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Michael Jackson, D.H. Lawrence, Freddie Mercury, Peter Sellers, Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, Mother Teresa, Leo Tolstoy, and H. G. Wells.

Please use this section to propose additions or amendments to the main article content.

Deletion of "Notable People from History born when the Sun was in Virgo".[edit]

Not only does that sentence not make sense - the whole section is entirely unnecessary. How is Freddie Mercury from "History"? Delete. Kingofthesalads (talk) 06:58, 4 September 2011 (UTC)

How is he not? The word history relates to recent past events as well as the events of a previous era - see the section above 'view history'. You may as well ask "how is what I posted a few hours ago part of history?". -- Zac Δ talk! 08:29, 4 September 2011 (UTC)

I've removed the section. It was unreferenced, is original research, is impossible to represent in a neutral manner, and is highly likely to attract imappropriate edits.  Chzz  ►  13:25, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

What does Virgo mean?[edit]

Does it mean "the virgin"? Would be interested in the etymology of this (and other) star signs. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 114.247.10.168 (talk) 11:18, 28 November 2011 (UTC)

Compatibility and the chart?[edit]

A chart such as the ones found in Scorpio's page would be helpful to those who want straight-forward compatibility charts. This would also be useful on the other zodiac sign pages that don't have them, for one reason or other. Also, last time I checked, there was not even a section for compatibility on Virgo's page. Can someone fix this? 174.109.113.44 (talk) 19:55, 15 December 2011 (UTC)

Tropical and Sidereal dates not usually the same[edit]

In the first paragraph, reference is made to both the tropical and the sidereal dates of this zodiac sign. These dates usually vary from each other, but here, each respective system is showing the same dates as corrected by the user Gemma Gemini (without citation, as is so often and blindly tolerated by Wikipedia volunteers). This is a verifiable fact and yet it is in contradiction to information in the last paragraph of the page (section Sidereal zodiac, another entry without citation).

I am terrified of making corrections myself, as my input in the past with truthful and referenced content has been blocked by bullying Wikipedia volunteers, who were not able or willing to read and understand the finer aspects of written and evidently verifiable words. Thus could anybody please reverse the entries by Gemma Gemini made on 23 July 2012 to show the correct sidereal dates for this astrological sign? Thank you. No, I am not a Virgo. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 93.97.194.109 (talk) 00:56, 26 August 2012 (UTC)

Redirection of Western Zodiac signs[edit]

On 22 October 2012 the contents of the articles for the individual signs of the western zodiac (Pisces (astrology) etc.) were removed and replaced with redirects to Astrological sign#Western zodiac signs. These edits were made by User:Dominus Vobisdu with the edit summary: Unsourced and unsourceable cruft. No justification for stand-alone article. This did not seem to follow a community discussion.

Following concerns raised at the Reference Desk I will, after posting this, restore the articles to the form they were in immediately before their redirection. At least some of the articles seem to have been significantly reduced in size also prior to this redirection, however I have not reverted these changes.

Because I am sure editors may wish to discuss this (perhaps to reinstate the redirects, or make other changes to these articles), however a discussion spread among the talk pages twelve articles in question would be too dissipated, I suggest Talk:Astrological_sign#Redirection_of_Western_Zodiac_signs as a centralised discussion location. An editor with more experience than I in Wikipedia policies may wish to move this discussion to a better location. LukeSurl t c 15:21, 23 October 2012 (UTC)
