I thought Turkey was associated with the sign of Leo... Chillinchillin 10:24, 28 January 2007 (UTC)chillinchillin

I dont understand how they know wich country is associated with?.. what does it mean? (talk) 13:25, 10 December 2008 (UTC)
I am also curious as to how a country can be associated with something Universal. Maybe geographical places could be so, but a country? How? —Dimitrakopulos (talk) 19:10, 25 December 2008 (UTC)


I do not believe that this write-up is neutral. I have never read some of the negative attributes written here as part of any other commentary on Virgos. Also, many of the positive attributes that I've read about Virgos elsewhere were ommitted here. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:24, August 27, 2007 (UTC)


Virgo is the only sign in the western astrological chart represented by a female?

Firstly, though not visually a female, the crab, in cancer... yes, that signifies a woman. "Cancer (The Crab) (water, cardinal, personal): Keyword: "I feel". Protective, sensitive, tenacious, family and home oriented, helpful, nurturing, watery, emotional, loving. Can be crabby, clinging, moody, worrying, pessimistic." do your homework first, next time. PLEASE. (talk) 13:25, 10 December 2008 (UTC) I onley thought that it was a girl? (Twilight578 (talk) 14:04, 5 May 2009 (UTC)) ~edward cullen~

Female Debate[edit]

Hello guys. I deleted "Virgo is the only zodiac sign represented by a female.". I see you have had some arguments on this, however it ultimately matters not if it actually is the only sign represented by a female or not, for I see this sentence on an encyclopaedia article as irrelevant; it's not like a hardly noticeable thing or a matter of importance found after research. Please do not re-put something of the sort without discussion.

By the way, the argument brought up with 2s after 7s full of an IP address and ends with "PLEASE." : those characteristics may represent a stereotype of a woman, but they don't stand for all women. I don't say don't have personal beliefs on signs, just keep them away from articles.

Thanks. —Dimitrakopulos (talk) 18:59, 25 December 2008 (UTC)

It is the only sign with a clearly human, female character. The rest are much more conceptual or animals. This is perhaps not worth mentioning though, aside from the fact that Virgo is so strongly associated with the Feminine for this reason. --Arthurfallz (talk) 05:36, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

Virgo is a neutral sign ruled by neutral planet Mercury. It is the female child just reached physical maturity who does not know its sexuality yet. Virgo is the fruit from the sowing of Taurus, that has reached its peak of growth and acheived its physical perfection, just ready to be picked. It cannot stay perfect hence the mutability, then it begins its physical decline towards Capricorn, so the cycle begins again. (Also, the article should not talk of Virgo as a feminine sign in the context of the alternating masculine or feminine signs around the wheel - they are alternating active and passive rather.) This is how male/female/neutral energy is distributed through planets: Moon - Old Yin, Venus - Young Yin, Saturn - Old Yang, Mars - Young Yang, Mercury - Neutral (becoming Yin), Jupiter - Neutral (becoming Yang).

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)

Not to mention it would literally include 1/12 of humans ever born... Bit of a long list. (talk) 00:08, 14 December 2015 (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 (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? (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 (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)

Virgo vs. Libra dates[edit]

This page says that Virgos are born between 28 August – 28 September while Libras are born between 23 September – 23 October. So what astrological signs are people born between September 23 and September 28 under? Someone please fix this.

I also wonder if this is the place/article to tabulate the dates before and after the change/redirection. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:25, 19 February 2015 (UTC)

Astrological Mumbo Jumbo stuff missing[edit]

I was looking for some information on what traits people of a particular star sign are supposed to have. I'm not a believer in that stuff, but it is a fact that some people believe, and so I wanted to find a reference of what's what, much like is seen on the page:

Now I buy the fact that it's not fact, but it is also relevant information. If the (astrology) pages aren't the right place to put/find that, can someone tell me where is. I've done the run around on wikipedia, and come back to where I started.

Corrections to dates, date and citation format in sign articles[edit]

I have created a module which encapulates values for the dates the Sun enters and exits the various signs; the data is taken from the U.S. Naval Observatory's Multiyear Interactive Computer Almanac and covers 2015 through most of 2050. The Template:Zodiac date produces some erroneous results, so I hope to implement the change this week.

It is only practical to implement one date and citation style for the module and infobox, so it would be helpful if we can agree on what format to use for the various sign articles. Please discuss at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Astrology#Corrections to dates, date and citation format in sign articles. Jc3s5h (talk) 20:59, 23 March 2016 (UTC)
