Virgo Zodiac Sign Introduction
The most pessimistic of all the signs and therefore prone to be highly negative in outlook if not balanced by a strong dose of Sagittarius, for example. I know Virgos who are constant worriers, so much so that they worry alarmingly about unlikely situations when there is no sign that the situation is set to occur.
Virgos are extremely analytical, counting every last detail and crossing the Ts and dotting every I. Lists come second nature to these people. Precision is shown in everything to do – and think. Unless the rest of the chart says otherwise, Virgos are conservative by nature and tend to happily remain in the background, observing rather than taking part.

They often become obsessed with their health and fitness, sometimes leading to hypochondria. And their exact neatness and tidiness can become the total opposite – to almost tramp-like proportions – if they have strong negative aspects in their chart.
Like the water sign Pisces, they are at their best when serving others in some way, rather than taking the initiative. They can be very hard on themselves in their constant quest for perfection in everything they do. And they do have a tendency to be a little too critical on others at times, making them unpopular if not checked.

About Virgo Personality
Virgo is the sixth sign of the zodiac and is symbolized by the Virgin, often depicted holding an ear of corn. Virgo’s symbol or glyph has a fused collection of representations, including the modestly crossed limbs of the virgin, the hymen, three ears of corn, and the letters M and V as standing for Maria Virgo the virgin Mary. The Sun is in Virgo from around 23 August until around 22 September each year. Virgo is classified as being of the negative polarity (passive and receptive), of the earth element (practical, cautious, and restrained), and of the mutable quality (adaptable and variable).
Virgo shows an analytical and critical attitude, with an urge for efficiency, perfection, and detail. The characteristic Virgo type is critical, discriminating, and practical, evaluating life by facts and logic. Virgo must analyze, take to pieces, and sift the minutest details for their significance to the whole. Virgo’s urge is to grind and separate material into assimilative and digestible particles so that only the pure essence is left. Hence they are thorough, methodical, conscientious, and precise. Virgo often has an interest in hygiene and cleanliness. Virgo is ruled by the planet Mercury, though its tendency is to use Mercury’s intellectuality in reserved, modest, practical, down to earth and helpful ways, as a technical specialist or researcher, or in the background in service and support. In this way, Virgo is in Christian terms akin to the way of Martha as well as to that of Mary. Virgo is orderly and thoughtful, hardworking and conscientious, handling projects with discriminating and painstaking perfection.
This sign can carry its critical attention to detail to extremes, however, becoming picky, fussy, and sometimes interfering. Overuse of the Virgo manner becomes hypercritical and hypocritical, too fastidious and pedantic, with suppressed emotions and with over-specialization and needless worrying. There is a danger that the big picture may be missed in an emphasis on orderly neatness and minute details. Virgo can be over-conscious of or even neurotically concerned with matters to do with health, hygiene, and cleanliness. Virgo’s modesty can also become over-expressed in ways that become puritanical or prudish.
Physically it rules the abdomen, the intestines, the spleen, and central nervous system. Virgo may have a tendency to intestinal complaints such as appendicitis, ulcers (especially through worrying), and to various nervous disorders. Virgo is especially associated with, or “ruled” by, the planet Mercury.
Let’s break The Virgo Personalities down into the Decans
Virgo 1st decan – August 23rd to September 1st – Mercury ruler (Double Virgo)
These individuals can be very nervous at times and unable to unwind in their daily lives. Most of the time, these individuals are always thinking or worrying, and that is something that will dominate their lives.
They need to pay attention to every detail when they work on something. It doesn’t matter what they are doing, whether it’s a project or a relationship, they want everything to be just right. They are definitely a sign that is always striving for perfection.
For them to remain fulfilled and happy in life, they need access to a constant stream of information. The information could come from many different sources, such as books, the internet, or even from friends and family. With regular access to new information, they can learn more about the world around them and keep their minds engaged.
Others might view them as in a state of flux or always on the go. They always seem to be in motion.

Due to the meticulous planning and highly organized lifestyle, they most often get what they want. Often, they find they are successful in whatever they want to do.
Virgo 3rd decan – September 12 to 22 – Venus ruler (Virgo + Taurus Influence)
This Decan is the more balanced out of all three of them. Although they can still worry about things, they can also unwind when they need to. The results are a happy medium.
They tend not to worry a great deal about things because of their balanced life, particularly compared to the other two Virgos.
