Virgo: The Virgin

Virgo attains its control-freak and Perfectionist tag from its ruler – Virgin who is, by virtue, a rule-abiding, nurturing and orderly symbol. Virgo energy is completely focused on control, being organized and purification. If you see a bookshelf neatly categorized and arranged by color, size, book type, book title, and author, you can surely say that it’s the work of a Virgo. That’s how they are  – fanatic about perfection, control freak, cleanliness freak and punctual as well. Virgo’s quality of paying attention to the minutest of details and a deep sense of humanity makes them stand out as the most sensible and careful signs of the zodiac. However, Perfectionism can also be an issue. In a Virgo company, we may sometimes be traumatized by their eye for detail; “why is that I couldn’t figure that out?” is a constant question we would ask ourselves. Some of the positive traits of Virgo energy are hardworking, dedicated, helpful, resourceful, health-conscious, clever, analytical, witty, and practical. Its negative traits are being over critical, preachy, Anxious, self-destructive, overwhelmed, uptight and self-pitying.

Virgo Element: Earth

Virgo is one of the Earth signs that fall between Taurus and Capricorn. This leads to a strong character, but a personality that prefers practicality, conservation and well-organized things in their day-to-day life. These folks will have a clear vision or goal in mind and do not tend to enjoy life as it should be done, since their goal is always at the back of their mind. They are over critical people and tend to always think of probable mistakes or errors that would perhaps not change ever. However, a Virgo companion motivates us to try new horizons every time – be it new workout routine or a new idea at our work. For them, constant learning is the essence of life and hence they keep motivating themselves and people around them to come up with innovative ideas. They have the ability to absorb a wealth of information and filter what is best required for them.

Virgo Ruling Planet: Mercury

Virgo is planet Mercury, which is known for its power of communication. Adapting to its ruling planet, Virgo is highly skilled in absorbing information, methodically filtering out what’s useful and what is not and also passing it on to people near him. These folks can handle a bank of information and assimilate it in their own words and actions. They are not just a powerhouse of knowledge;, but also they are extremely analytical and observant and can be very cult in pointing out mistakes. This may offend a lot of people though, but if you are ready to bear with this critique, you’ll surely find a best friend in them.

Virgo: A Mutable Sign

Virgo is grouped under the Mutable sign. The Mutable signs generally come towards the end of every season and have gone through the hard lessons taught by four seasons, Hence they are aware of the fact that all good things come to an end, their attitude is to move on in life and not think about the past. With its detail-oriented quality that the Gemini possesses, it can give a winning touch to nearly anything. We can easily term our Gemini friends as “Picture Perfect” individuals as perfection is something that drives them crazy and they would not give up any assignment or project till they know it is a 100% perfect.

Virgo People: What They’re Like

The Virgos are perfection personified to the core be it their wardrobe or work projects or their way of taking care of their kids, everything needs to be to the Tee. As Virgos tend to get stressed very fast due to their habit of from micromanaging nearly everything in their lives, short idle time or “Me Time” is extremely critical to rejuvenating themselves. That they fulfill with their love for reading, painting, writing, decluttering, organizing, planning or just dreaming about newer ideas. But they will never say no and jump into action if a friend is in trouble. Because our sharp-eyed Virgo friends can quickly identify the flaws in everything, they can come across as highly judgmental and a bit critical as well. And when they get prompted into lecturing everyone around them, they need to be reminded that they are not the “Saviours of the World” and some things can just be left imperfect as well. They sometimes need to let go of things as well. With their desire to do everything themselves, they land up taking no or minimal support from their partners or friends and sometimes get worked up because of that.
