About Virgo

The Virgo is not always the perfectionist that some of the unenlightened astrology writers try to promote them to be. The most important thing to remember about Virgo is that you strive to be useful. Yes, you have an analytical mind and clarity of thought, organizational skills, practicality, and honesty about yourself, but unless this is put to use, you may feel lost.

Virgo is generally a courteous sign. However, when put upon by others, Virgo tends to be more timid than some of the other signs, like Aries or Capricorn. The tendency is to avoid, rather than confront troubles, and the famous heightened powers of discrimination you and your sign-mates possess will, when sensing danger, cause you to fix yourselves in a position close to the exit door, or otherwise out of harm‟s way.

Virgos, when in a bad mood, can be quite critical and pessimistic, and can sometimes suffer from low self-esteem. This criticism is directed at the self more often than others. These dark moods usually result from setting your goals too high or expecting too much of yourself which, more often than not, sets the Virgo up for disappointments and regrets. When the dark mood fades into the background, you may still have a look of worry on your face, which you have a hard time relaxing into a smile. But most folks don‟t realize that this is not worry you‟re expressing. Instead, it is the look of reason, trying to figure things out in order to avoid making a mistake. A lot of people don‟t realize how fussy you and your sign-mates are about your appearance. It‟s really important to Virgos that their inner and outer selves match. You can always tell when a Virgo is not at their best, because he or she will look it.

Many Virgos are at the top of their profession because of your natural talent for making themselves indispensable. Virgos excel in professions where discipline is required, and are especially good at professions that cater to human needs or well being because, once again, of the driving need to be useful. Virgo is capable and cool, but more often than not takes on more than can be managed. Then, pushing beyond safe limits is often the cause of the nervous complaints some believe your sign to be prone to. Once this stage is reached, Virgo has no problem in using their acting ability (you‟d be surprised how many famous show-business personalities are born into your sign) to manifest illness on cue when the opportunity to go somewhere or do something presents itself, but is not what Virgo wants to do or where Virgo wants to go. In the worst-case scenario, you may start to believe yourself and actually manifest symptoms. The remedy, of course, is to realize that there are times when you need to say no, without worrying how someone else may feel about it.

The Virgo tends to suffer from many romantic disappointments because of being one of the most misinterpreted signs of the Zodiac. You may often get compliments about how helpful or useful you are, but end up being left out of the fun. Some Virgos are the brunt of jokes coming from those who are jealous of their wealth of information, their well-put-together look, or their efficient and organized lifestyles. Usually this happens during the younger years, because most Virgos, as adults, are private people who take their lives and their loves seriously. Although Scorpio and Capricorn may be better at keeping secrets, Virgo is always trustworthy and reliable when it comes to keeping personal matters private. Virgo has very deep and loyal feelings, and is often willing to make major sacrifices for love.

Virgos care for the things they own and the things they are responsible for, and this includes the people they are involved with. Almost always ready with suggestions on any matter, the Virgo puts their partner‟s worries on par with, and sometimes above, their own. Although Virgo does not naturally gravitate towards marriage, or at least making a big deal out of it, once committed, the Virgo takes up the duties of partnership very well. Virgo marriages are usually successful for the long term. A dutiful partner in business or love, you are as attentive and knowledgeable about lovemaking as you are about whatever your topic of interest may be.

Low Profile Style

Virgo is one of the most low profile zodiac signs, and that’s because you have high standards and won’t settle for anything less than the best. This is the truth whether in your career or in your love life, and even in your circle of friends, which is small. You are symbolized by the Hermit in Tarot, and that’s because you can be one. If your partners or friends have any complaints, it is that you would rather stay in and watch Netflix or play Xbox than swim through a circle of drama at a social event. You are a natural homebody, and your grounded and reflective low profile style shows it. But when you do go out into the world, you do so with the intent to conquer it. And you do every time!


As an Earth Sign, Virgo, you are humble as the day is long, but that doesn’t mean that you don’t like money. You do. And you are very good at it, and use it to meet the needs of the people that you love. But making money isn’t enough for you. You need to make a difference. And for you there’s no point in earning cash, if you aren’t helping someone out while you do. As a Mutable Sign, you like to have days that are different every day, and if you can find that while helping others in the world, you consider yourself a success. Fields like teaching, charity work, or service oriented industries are great ones for you as a result. You’re always described as the “best hire ever” thanks to your superior work ethic, and your nature to work long hours without complaining once.

Love & Relationships

When you enter relationships, you are in it for the long haul, and you are the only Mutable Sign that can say that. This is due to your Earth bound nature, and your commitment to those that you love. You would rather walk a bed of coals than let your lover or partner down. You may be a little picky when it comes to love, and you definitely have high standards. So while it may take you a while to decide someone is The One, once you do, you are in it for life. Your relationships are always real as a result, and that’s why they usually stand the test of time.

Element - Earth Sign

Astrology can reveal a lot, but there’s much more to it than what Sun sign you are. At the very heart of astrology—and of tarot, palmistry, sacred geometry, even ceremonies, and rituals—are the four elements.These are Fire, Earth, Water, and Air. If you think about it, we need these four elements—all of them—in order to survive on the planet. We heat and cook and purge with fire. We grow things in the Earth; it is the foundation of our existence, and we return to it when our life has ended.

We need water to survive; it grows the plants of the earth and quenches our thirst; our bodies are approximately 60% water, and the Earth itself is approximately 70% water. We need air to breathe. Even our words are given life by our breath when we speak them out loud.

So, you can see, the elements are very important indeed!If you were born a Taurus, a Virgo, or a Capricorn, then you were born an earth sign. See if you recognize yourself in these points.Of course, not all earth signs are going to behave the same. Even two different Capricorns can be very different from each other, because of the way that the rest of their planets fall. Remember, the Sun sign is only one part of astrology! There’s so much more to discover.

See if you recognize yourself in these points.

  • You’re gregarious grounded and usually dependable.
  • You’re practical and ‘down to earth.’
  • You err on the side of caution.
  • You enjoy creating, whether it is making a comfortable home, or doing a good job.
  • You like material goods and creature comforts.
  • You feel a strong sense of duty.
  • You take your responsibilities seriously.
  • You tend to be conservative in your approach to life.
  • You appreciate good food and pleasant surroundings.
  • You’re usually logical and reasonable.
  • You may be too focused on your possessions.
  • You sometimes forget to consider the feelings of others.
  • You tend to be goal oriented, rather than enjoying the path to reaching that goal.

The Quadruplicities

Even though all earth signs are going to be very similar, there’s a lot of difference between them. This is because of the triplicities, or the qualities of those signs. Just like there are four elements ­­Fire, Earth, Air, Water ­­there are three triplicities. These are Cardinal, Mutable, and Fixed.

Here are the qualities of the Mutable quadruplicity, which is softer than that of the Cardinal quadruplicity. This quality is adaptable. It’s the ‘go along with the crowd’ energy of the zodiac. Perhaps you recognize yourself here?

  • You go along with the crowd.
  • You aren’t particularly interested in leadership.
  • You enjoy discussing new ideas.
  • You aren’t particularly assertive or dominant.
  • You’re willing to follow others.
  • You’re able to work as part of a team.
  • You’re content to be in the middle of things.
  • You’re cautious about taking risks.
  • You’re responsible and trustworthy.

Earth Element - Virgo

If you were born under the sign of Virgo, you’re going to be a very devoted person to your loved ones. You’re very observant, just make sure that this doesn’t turn into judgment or criticism. You were born seeking perfection, and one of the hardest lessons for you to learn is that no one is perfect. Learn to accept people including yourself ­­how they are, and love them that way, otherwise you could find yourself becoming very nit­picky and bitter.

You’re also the sort of person that means well, but may be taken the wrong way. People can mistake your advice for criticism, and your preciseness as eccentricity. This can make you withdrawn and reserved if you don’t go out of your way to make an extra effort to display warmth and compassion. You worry about things too much on the whole, and this can play havoc with your digestive system and your nerves.

You may also be prone to over­stretching yourself. This can add to your nervous disposition and your anxiety. You’re dependable and sincere, but others may not see that side of you if the judgemental side of you is too strong. You really don’t want to hurt people’s feelings, but they

will often take you the wrong way and get hurt by your words or actions, anyway. You may even be a neat freak, and become short ­tempered when others don’t seem to respect your wishes. When people get to really know you though, they’re going to find someone who is warm, patient, and compassionate. You’re always the first to come the aid of your friends.

As much as you see the flaws of others, you may be a bit unaware of your own issues. You may not see yourself as critical or judgemental, or you may see yourself more critical than you truly are. It’s hard for you to see yourself as you really are, because you spend so much time analyzing everything and everyone ­­including yourself. You’re not one for public displays of affection and intimacy may just be too plain messy for you, but that doesn’t mean that you’re not devoted to your loved ones. You’re just not particularly demonstrative.

You enjoy helping others but you find it hard to ask for or accept assistance yourself. You are independent to a flaw sometimes, and you don’t like to be indebted to others. You may not

spend a lot on yourself, but you’ll indulge your loved ones and readily share what you have with those who have less than you do. Your feelings get hurt easy when others’ refuse what you have to offer them. Be careful you’re not judging and holding grudges when this happens. Here are some of your more dominant traits.

Here’s a list of some of your more predominant qualities.

  • You’re devoted to your family and loved ones.
  • You’re not one for being the center of attention.
  • You’re observant.
  • You can be a perfectionist.
  • You’re a realist.
  • You’re dependable.
  • You’re sincere.
  • You readily help others.
  • You are punctual.
  • You are honest.
  • You are independent.
  • You’re good at handling details.
  • You are a natural organizer.
  • You’re responsible.
  • You’re reliable.
  • You’re good with facts and figures.

Of course, like anyone else, you do have aspects of your personality that need to be accepted and maybe worked on.

  • You’re not over­demonstrative when it comes to displays of affection.
  • You’re critical.
  • You worry too much.
  • You may be too vain about your looks.
  • You over­commit yourself.

  • You can be too finicky about minutiae.
  • You’re a bit of a neat freak.
  • You find it hard to ask for or accept assistance.
  • You don’t like to owe anything to anyone.

The key to any Virgo’s success is to work harder to believe in themselves more and criticize others less. You often put yourself second, and you have to learn that in order to be the best child or spouse or parent or worker or neighbor or sibling or anything else that you can be, you first have to be the best you that you can be, and this can take some learning.
