Virgo Sign astrology horoscopes invariably describe a reserved, controlled, and conservative individual. Although seldom celibate, Virgos manage to keep their personal identities and virginal nature intact throughout their lives. Sensitive to their surroundings, they tend to embarrass easily. The Virgo sign highlights a person not too comfortable in the limelight. These types are just fine living in the background, as long as they feel useful and appreciated.
The Virgo Man/Woman is intensely curious. Still, there is a strong desire to remain pure on some level, despite all of Virgo’s curiosity and drive to know things. They’ll happily pick apart practically anything, although they are less adept at putting things back together, and often have trouble grasping the big picture. One of the most powerful of Virgo sign traits is to worry about everything – about their health, their performance at work, all the things they haven’t done, and the emails that might be waiting for them while they are away from their computer. When they’re not feeling well, they can be overly critical and nervous.
Despite an overall lack of confidence, the Virgo man can be mighty proud, even arrogant, when it comes to their work, routines, or hobbies. Virgos often confuse people when their curiosity is mistaken for passion. Virgos are quite practiced at nagging and complaining. They are restless and nervous, and can’t seem to see the big picture. In relationships, they can be self-effacing and kind. Some are quite shy in love, and easily intimidated on a sexual level. Virgo is very body-aware, in general. If this awareness combines with a lack of self-confidence, it can lead to a tendency to be intensely self-critical. Curious, they can be very interested in others’ problems, though they may appear quite cool and even unsympathetic.
Rarely flashy in their communication style, they do thoroughly appreciate it when others acknowledge their brainpower. Generally considered useful in their work, they are also valued as friends because they have a handle on details and logical plans of action. They are great listeners and they make it a habit to observe and learn all of your ins and outs. Productive and busy, they are goal-oriented, practical and doing many things at any give time. Great multi-taskers, th Virgo sign is quite protective about their “system” for getting things done.
A perfectionist at heart, they worry when they are not producing anything, and they worry about whether what they’ve produced will measure up. Often a little understated in their personal mannerisms and appearance, there is an intelligent and reserved aura about Virgo that is unmistakable. This quality can be received exactly as that, or it can be received as a rather stand-offish, cool, and even critical. With a tendency to attract (or be attracted to) people who need help, their relationships can be confusing and misunderstood. There’s a bit of a joke about how precise and demanding Virgos are, but… what’s wrong with being tidy, organised and clean?
The Virgo Personality reveals a creature in love with all that is “natural”, with a strong sense of responsibility. Even when they’ve persuaded themselves to be careless about something, they fret about it. Virgos that find a genuine interest or “calling” easily become authorities. And attention to minutiae and their colossal powers of observation give them the ability to detect all of the nuts and bolts of any potential partner.
They may fuss around, have a whole slew of assorted little complaints, and throw small tantrums, but the happiest Virgos accept their need to get things right, without overdoing it. Virgos can be rather private and fussy about their work, or their personal workspace. Virgo, although knowledgeable, doesn’t always get her hands dirty. Her willingness to explore is often kept at the intellectual level.
Virgos are often self-effacing and shy. They’ll brush off your compliments quickly and, sometimes, critically. They are at their best when they feel useful and needed. If somebody needs help, they are generally the first to jump up and take on the task. The best remedy for these people is a job or hobby in which they can express their deep need to analyze, attend to details, and micromanage. Their advice can seem harsh to more sensitive folk; yet Virgos can be surprisingly “thin-skinned” when faced with others’ criticism. Keeping track of every detail, they can be a little high-strung when things are not orderly or seem out of control, so they put a lot of energy into taking care of day-to-day, practical matters.
Capable of storing volumes of information, they require orderly environments in which to learn, and organized study methods. Their love can be of the Kindergarten variety – they show they care by nagging or criticizing. They have a knack for handling a wide variety of tasks at once, and a tendency to take on perhaps too much at the same time. They can be quite particular about their methods – how they organize and accomplish their goals, mostly with work. An earthy and sometimes nervous sexuality generally characterizes virgins.
In a sense, their performance in bed is similar to their work. One of their strongest personality traits is body-awareness. Virgos are sensitive to any discomfort or other signals their body gives them. Despite Virgos’ tendency to appear collected and professional, their relationships can sometimes be messy simply because they don’t always see their partners and partnerships clearly. They’ll help you out of a jam, go out on a limb for you, and surprise you with a natural modesty under a somewhat critical and standoffish manner. Some feel that their standards are much too high to live up to. If only they knew just how critical Virgos are of themselves. Explore Virgo Compatibility. Back to the top of Virgo Sign.
