The Personality Traits of a Virgo
Virgos never let any details escape them and combined with their deep feelings about other people this tends to make them one of the most cautious of the zodiac signs. They approach life logically and methodically, trying to leave nothing to chance. Furthermore, while Virgos may be sensitive, due to their innate rationality, it can be hard for others to see their sensitive side. As a result, Virgos are often misunderstood. This is not just because they express themselves poorly in regards to emotional matters, but also because they may also struggle to accept their own feelings as valid, real, or relevant. In other words, they will try to let reason govern their actions, often at the expense of their emotions.
As noted, Virgo is an Earth sign, together with Taurus and Capricorn. This translates into a strong character, and one that prefers order, organisation, practicality and what can appear to be conservative values. Virgos tend to live very structured and organised lives, and even when they allow things to become slightly chaotic, they are usually working towards very well defined goals. However, Virgos can become bogged down in details, worrying to much that they have overlooked something of consequence. This can lead to Virgos being overly critical and seemingly concerned with things that matter little to anyone else.
With Mercury as the ruling planet, Virgos will normally have a well-developed use of language, as well as other forms of communication. As such, they often find themselves in roles where clarity of communication is of the upmost important. They are also deeply satisfied when in a role that requires serving others for the greater good.
Part of the story of Virgo is the disappointed goddess looking for goodness in humankind, and Virgos often seem to find disappointment in life. Virgos wish to use their existence for good and help others to do the same. However, inevitably they will often fail in their endeavours, and they will be hit hardest when let down by other people, often causing them to withdraw into themselves and brood.
A Virgo’s eye for detail is possibly their greatest strength. They are able to look at a situation and notice even the minutest details while others will often overlook things. Of course, this makes them perfectionists and it can cause some frustration when dealing with others, but it also gives Virgos the ability to perfect anything to which they apply themselves.
Building on their eye for detail, Virgos are often able to bring an inventiveness to solving problems that they have spotted. Furthermore, it also gives them the ability to learn new skills faster than most. This allows Virgos to tackle problems without fear of failure and they are able to bring a huge amount of resourcefulness to any situation. It also allows for great practicality and creativeness, and it is not unusual for Virgos to be good with their hands.
Virgos’ love of perfection often leads to workaholic tendencies. They will not stop until a task has been completed perfectly, and they will often sacrifice their emotional, physical and mental wellbeing along the way. This can lead to an all work and no play lifestyle, which in turn can result in moodiness and a short temper.
Furthermore, with planet Mercury ruling the sign, Virgos have very fast minds. Combined with their attention to minute details, this can cause their thoughts to be overwhelming and lead to a cycle of over analysis. It is important that Virgos learn when to let things go and to recognise when something is not worth worrying about.
A wonderful trait in Virgos is that they do not crave the spotlight or need a huge amount of praise for their achievements. They will happily work hard to serve others and they will not be doing it for fame or fortune. Rather, they wish to help those who are in need and will be satisfied knowing that they have completed a job to the best of their abilities.
To many the sign Virgo is a symbol of purity, and it is not unusual for Virgos to give of an aura of purity and gracefulness. As a result, they will often have a neat and classic appearance, and will instinctively stay away from untidiness, crudeness, and rudeness. They will take pride in their appearance, down to the smallest detail.
One of the strongest traits in a Virgo is reliability. This a positive and a negative, as it stems from a Virgo’s tendency to put a huge amount of pressure on themselves not to disappoint others and to do a job perfectly. Virgos will not avoid their work or neglect responsibilities but will always go the extra mile to make sure that everything is done properly.
As a result, Virgos are usually hugely admired and respected by those who are around them. Virgos are often so busy trying to achieve perfection that they may struggle to make enough time for their friends and family; however, when they do have the time, they will find that they are welcomed and hugely appreciated.
This is also due to the honest nature of a Virgo. They do not play games and they are always straightforward. While this can lead to problems, as they fail to sugar coat anything, it does earn them great respect, especially when at work. This is also part of what makes Virgos such solid workers, and they will find that they often have exciting professional opportunities.
However, Virgos do have to be careful as their perfectionist nature can make them highly critical of others. Virgos expect everyone to meet the standards that they set for themselves and may be too quick to criticise when a person fails to meet them. In fact, it is not unusual to hear others accusing Virgos of nit picking, and sometimes a Virgos eye for detail can mean that they notice things that are probably best left alone. They can be highly vocal in their criticism of others, and this can lead to conflict.
Virgos elevate logic, rational and order above all else, and this can make it hard for them to express their emotions. Furthermore, it makes it even harder for a Virgo to understand and deal with other people’s emotions, especially negative ones such as anger or sadness. As a result, many Virgos will instinctively keep others at arm’s length, and this means that they may be seen as cold and distant, but it is just a form of self-protection.
Virgos also have to work hard to ensure that they are not seen as uptight. They have a huge sense of responsibility, which means that they are often stuck in thought and identifying ways in which things can go wrong. As a result, they can be apprehensive about trying new things or they may try to be too controlling of their environments. It is a struggle for Virgos to live in the moment and just let things unfold. Furthermore, their talent for analysis can translate into arrogance, smugness and moral superiority, and it is important that Virgos learn to keep this in control so as not to alienate their peers.
There are many positives and negatives to a Virgo’s personality, and a Virgo will be happiest when they have learned to identify both and make them work together.
How Virgos Treat Love and Relationships
Virgos do not feel secure in matters of the heart as they are in direct contrast to their logical nature. Therefore, a Virgo needs to find a partner who supports them with all the love they need in order for them to feel secure enough to open up and allow their emotions through. Virgos are not the type to make grand statements of love; rather they are people who will express themselves through smaller acts of intimacy. Virgos will seek stable relationships rather than short lived, torrid affairs, and they will tend to have very few casual lovers. However, they are capable of using their own charms and logical manner for seduction, when they wish an emotionless encounter.
Virgos can be hard to understand and will often have unspoken standards that they expect their partners to meet. It is rare for Virgos to have numerous sexual partners. It is important to build trust with a Virgo, which takes time and patience, and they will be extremely caring and nurturing to their chosen partners.
Virgos seek the kind of love where souls, minds and bodies truly connect as one. For that reason, Virgos are often described as being extremely picky. However, this is an unfair characterisation as Virgos simply know exactly what they are looking for and they are not the type of people who will settle for less.
Furthermore, even when a Virgo finds a potential partner, it will still take a long time for them to allow the relationship to develop. Virgos instinctively want to protect their hearts and during the early stages of a relationship, a Virgo will be picking up on everything their partner does. As mentioned, Virgos have an incredible eye for detail and this is no less true when it comes to romantic involvement. A Virgo needs to make sure that their prospective partner will match the expectations that they have in their mind, and one wrong move is normally one too many.
That said, once a Virgo commits, they will truly give everything to a relationship. They expect 100% honestly from their partners and they will give the same in return. They believe that everything should be shared, both the material and the emotional, and think that relationships should last for life.
While Virgos are often characterised as conservative characters, this does not mean that they shy away from sex. Rather, they see sex as a way to celebrate a relationship and they will cherish the physical aspects of a relationship. As such, it is of the upmost importance and will have a central role in any successful partnership.
In regards to compatible signs, Virgo and Taurus often go well together as they innately understand each other and shy away from drama. They both believe in sharing everything, from feelings to passwords, and can be sure that the other has nothing to hide. Virgo and Cancer are extremely well matched on the physical side and can use this to build an incredible bond. However, a better match may be Capricorn, an extremely practical sign that loves to plan, pursue perfection, and avoid drama. The two signs complement each other extremely well and together make a formidable team.
Virgos’ Approach to Career and Money
Virgos are detail orientated, practical, analytical, and very hard working. Their methodological approach to life makes them excellent at jobs that require good organisational skills, dealing with paperwork, solving problems, and analyses. They demand perfection from themselves and apply this to every aspect of their work. However, they also have a creative streak, meaning that they can work very well in the arts where behind the scenes organisation is essential.
This practical side of Virgos makes them excellent at managing finances. They will always be planning, so instinctively they look to save money as much as possible. It is unusual to find Virgos spending money irrationally and they will always be looking for cost effective solutions. This can make them appear a bit tight fisted and they may sometimes forget that money can be enjoyed, but it also means that in an emergency, they will have the funds to call upon.
At work, Virgos tend not to be outspoken, but this does not mean that they lack leadership capabilities. Rather, they are quiet leaders, who will motivate a team and lead by example. They will demand the same high standards from themselves and from those under them, meaning that they will not be accused of unfairness or slacking off.
On the other hand, Virgos will trust themselves above others to do a job properly. This means that they have a tendency to overwork themselves and to not delegate tasks. Furthermore, it can lead to work taking over their lives, which can create problems at home. It is important for Virgos to be aware of this and to learn when it is ok to let go.
Virgos will thrive in structured work environments and will struggle in chaotic environments. They need clear direction and expectations, not vague instructions that are open to too much interpretation. As such, ideal careers for Virgos include teaching, museum or library work, working with IT systems, analysis, or architecture.
How Virgos Respond to Friends and Family
Virgos have an innate sense of responsibility and an appreciation for traditional values, and as such, family is highly important to them. They will happily care for their elderly relatives and make an effort to remember important events such as birthdays. Virgos will also desire to start a family of their own and will thrive on devoting their considerable talent and energies to developing as strong a family unit as they possibly can.
When it comes to friendships, things are a bit more complicated. Virgos tend to build walls around themselves to protect themselves and any friendships they already have. As such, they can be a bit reluctant to make new connections and can appear cold to outsiders. Virgos take friendship extremely seriously but at the same time, they are more than capable of putting themselves first. That is why Virgos will only put effort into friendships that they think can last. Therefore, while a Virgo may be happy to chat at work, it may be a while longer before they agree to meeting in their free time.
However, once a Virgo commits to friendship, it is likely to last a lifetime. They will always be there for their friends and they are more than happy to put their analytical skills to use when approached with a problem. They have high standards and expect their friends to match them. Therefore, a Virgo may have to learn not to point out when someone is not quite doing their best or realising their potential. Furthermore, Virgos may have to learn to be forgiving of other people’s flaws.
Overall, friendship with a Virgo is highly rewarding; they are warm people, always ready to lend a hand and help out when in need. Furthermore, they are fantastic at making plans and more than happy to put their skills to good use for their friends.
As perfectionists, it is no surprise than many Virgos have achieved considerable success and entered the celebrity sphere. Here we take a look at some of the most famous Virgos around.
Born 4 September 1981, Beyoncé truly shows what being a Virgo is all about. She combines innate sexuality with a nurturing nature, an excellent work ethic, and perfectionist tendencies. Despite all her glitz and glamour, she is truly humble and is always trying to help out those around her. Perhaps her Virgo streak is best shown in her quote, “I can never be safe; I always try and go against the grain. As soon as I accomplish one thing, I just set a higher goal. That’s how I’ve gotten to where I am.”
Born 2 September 1964, Keanu Reeves has shown his perfectionist streak in his countless fantastic performances. He has always tried to keep his private life private, in true Virgo fashion. At the same time, he is a real workaholic who likes to be put to the test with everything he takes on. As Reeves once said, “I’m a Virgo. I like tasks, I like a puzzle. I like to get good at something.”
Sir Sean Connery
Born 25 August 1930, Sir Sean Connery is possibly one of the most famous Virgos around. However, he has never let his celebrity go to his head and he appears to be down to earth at all times. This is thanks to Virgo’s ability to think about others and treat them with respect. These tendencies were perhaps best explained by Connery himself when he said, “I never trashed a hotel room or did drugs. I understand if you get caught in a fight, but to take it out on a room that implies some psychiatric disorder. The way I was brought up made me think about the person who has to clean up afterwards.”
Born 30 August 1972, actress Cameron Diaz is a well-known perfectionist. Her talent and work ethic have brought her considerable success and a great deal of critical acclaim. All the evidence you need of Diaz’s Virgo tendencies is found in the following quote, “I think that anything that you do, any accomplishment that you make, you have to work for. And I've worked very hard in the last ten years of my life, definitely, and I can tell you that hard work pays off. It's not just a cliché.”
Born 9 September 1966, while actor Adam Sandler is a true Hollywood superstar, he remains remarkably grounded who truly values his close circle of friends, just as one would expect from a Virgo. In fact, this was best demonstrated by Sandler when he said, “I'm not comfortable being around too many people. I don't like being out in public too much. I don't like going to bars. I don't like doing celebrity stuff. So most of the characters I play are people who don't always feel comfortable beyond their small circle of friends.”
