    He doesn't need me:

    The word "virgo" is Latin, means "self-contained" which is for us is better interpreted as "self-sufficient". In astrology, those born under the sign of Virgo are said to behave in an individualistic, self-sufficient manner. Their nurturing comes from a place of not needing others to find fulfillment for them, but being able to create for others because they can already create for themselves.

    Virgo does not mean that in Latin.

    It means 'maiden' or 'virgin'.

    In every culture, Virgo has always been represented by a woman, usually referred to as a "virgin." The meaning of that word has changed over the years, however; the ancients described it as the age span between puberty and marriage, as in "maiden" (this age span used to be quite short—women usually married around age 15). In any case, the virgin was the personification of justice and proper behavior, since she was "pure." Today, these qualities can still be seen in many Virgos—they seem to know the correct way to dress for a social function and can judge a person's character rather easily. And, Virgos carry their childhood innocence with them into adulthood, longer than any other sign.

    Virgo is ruled by Mercury, along with Gemini— for this reason, many Virgos get along harmoniously with Geminis.

    Hi Davey23,

    Google or Bing "Virgo self-contained and Latin" and you'll find it is not uncommon for some astrologers to go beyond virgin to an interpretation of virgin.

    When I was a virgin I was not contained by another and I was sufficient having self without really being insufficient without sexual coupling. It's not that big of a stretch to go from the definition to the interpretation.

    Should I come across closer relationships among Virgo, Latin, self-contained and self-sufficient, that would be good for this thread.

    I'm just telling you, as a Latinist, that the word virgo does not mean 'self-contained' in Latin. At all.

    If anyone's translating the word as that and saying that is the definition of the word… they're incorrect.

    I'm a pisces; does that explain my interest in semantics?
