The ascendant/rising sign (Virgo or otherwise) describes how we appear to be, whereas the sun sign describes who we really are in a wider sense than just appearance. The charactersitics of Virgo will somewhat modify and shape the characteristics of your sun sign.
For example, if you are a Leo with Virgo rising, then you will tend to be much more precise and analytic than the typical Leo, (which could well be of major benefit to you). Or, if you are a Cancer with a Rising Virgo Sign, you will find yourself with less emotionality than the typical Cancer, which could well work to your advantage. Of if you are another earth sign such as Taurus or Capricorn, then the earthy aspects of your personality will tend to be emphasized and dramatized - these might include characteristics such as being: stubborn, materialistic, and avoidance of the spiritual. Such a double earth emphasis can (but does not necessarily) lead to extremes in words and/or actions.
With Virgo rising/ascendant, the frequent qualities of Virgo that will flavor your sun sign include being: precise, disciplined, astute, a workaholic, overly critical of self and others, and over-analytic.
