Element and Quality of Virgo
Virgo is the second of the Earth signs – grounded in a practical and solid approach to life. Virgo has two rulers: Mercury, its traditional ruler, and Chiron, its transformational ruler. The influence of Mercury gives the meticulous attention to detail and the ability to categorize and create order in the mental realm, and Chiron grants the shamanic wisdom that occurs when the body, mind and spirit are integrated. Virgo is a mutable sign – adaptable and flexible, preferring to work quietly in the background rather than to lead or be in charge.
