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.
Health-Conscious and Clean
More than any other sign, Virgo is extremely health-conscious and fastidious when it comes to personal hygiene and the maintenance of their personal belongings.
Most have impeccably clean homes, own impeccably maintained electronics, and take great care when it comes to their wardrobes.
They bathe religiously and are typically extremely well-groomed at all times.
Many people born under this sign take a strong personal interest in natural medicine and nutrition as well, finding vitamin supplements or homeopathic remedies to be worthwhile investments.
However, Virgos must be especially careful not to let their naturally nervous and obsessive nature lead them down the road to hypochondria.
Introverted and Tactful
Unless they have birth charts that feature outgoing or social placements, it is a Virgo trait to be introverted sorts who keep to themselves for the most part.
When placed in social situations, they tend to sit on the sidelines and observe until they feel they have the lay of the land.
Then they may cautiously participate to whatever extent they are comfortable.
Despite their shyness, Virgo natives do tend to possess the gift of diplomacy and have a knack for knowing exactly what to say to people and how to say it in order to achieve the result they’re after.
Money-Conscious and Responsible
It is a Virgo trait to be careful with their money and assets (as well as everything else). They are frugal people who don’t make frivolous or unwise purchases.
They think carefully about where and how to spend their funds, especially when it comes to large or important acquisitions.
Virgos are productive people who believe in working hard for everything they have.
These are people who also tend to be very critical – of others, but even more so of themselves.
They are constantly pushing themselves to be better and achieve more.
The fulfillment of obligations is important to them, so you can rest assured that when a Virgo promises something, they will deliver come hell or high water.
Careful and Discriminating
Virgos are careful folks by nature. They don’t make snap decisions and they really aren’t the sort to do anything without carefully weighing all the options and possibilities first.
Virgos are people of depth and substance, so they simply won’t bother with superficial people or unstable ventures that are unlikely to pan out.
They detest small talk or frivolous pursuits, preferring to focus their energies where they will really count for something.
Intellectual stimulation is especially important to Virgo natives and they will typically seek out relationships, situations, and professional positions that can provide it.
Service-Oriented and Level-Headed
Despite an inherent tendency to stress and worry, Virgos are terrific under pressure.
This combined with how reliable they are in general ensures that they are excellent people to have around when a crisis is going down.
It is one of the Virgo traits to be needed and many will enter service-oriented professions that allow them to make a positive difference in the world around them as a result.
They are especially well-suited for work in the medical field or in social services.

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).
About Virgo Personality
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.

Bad Side of Virgo
Others are often judged or evaluated based on the values they hold. When they’re with someone who doesn’t have the same values as them, it can cause trouble.
Other people around them are expected to work very hard and contribute to their success. It’s important to them that somebody shows them that they’re worth it, as well as contributes to their lives.
They’re the type of people who can cope with a chaotic lifestyle. So long as they’re busy with other things that will keep their minds occupied.
They tend to think every illness or discomfort they experience is a serious problem.
