Virgo is a Mutable Earth sign. Due to its Mutable quality, it has an ability to change, move and adapt. It also has the understanding of how to apply this change to the material world effectively, thanks to the element of Earth. The combination of these abilities has earned Virgo the nickname of the Landslide. Some may think that Virgo can only bend to circumstance, but this misconception has nothing in common with the sign’s ability to make the best of what the circumstances give him/her.
