the verb 'mean'
Would you help me with the following sentence?
1) Virgo means intelligent.
When I talk about the birth sign, can I say 1) according to the character of each sign?
I think 'mean' should be followed a noun. Should I change 'intelligent' to 'intelligence'?
I feel this will change the meaning of the sentence.
I'll be happy to get some comment.
Re: the verb 'mean'
Perhaps to clarify the sentence, you could say something like:
The Zodiac symbol Virgo signifies intelligence.
("Means" is often interchangeable with "signifies", but in this example, I don't think it works as well.)
