Virgo Horoscope: Zodiac, Personality and Characteristics

Astrological Characteristics Virgo:


Aug 23 - Sept. 22

Characteristics: Modest, Shy, Meticulous, Reliable, Practical, Diligent, Intelligent and Analytical, Fussy, A Worrier, Overcritical, Harsh, Perfectionist and Conservative

Instinctively responsive to the needs of others, Virgos readily adapt to different people and changing circumstances by finding ways to make themselves useful. They do not have a desire to be in the spotlight. However, they can be very successful at promoting those who are.

Virgos are meticulous, practical perfectionists. They abhor sloppiness and disorganization. They are sometimes seen as being far too picky. However, when you want a job done right the first time get a Virgo to do it. Some Virgos are not above using an inability to achieve perfection as the excuse for their own idleness and unproductiveness, but this is out of character with their true nature.

Virgo Horoscope Virgos have an inner drive to serve others, which must be met for them to be happy. They love to apply their analytical skills to solving the problems of others. They are generally perceived to be quite witty and entertaining, if a tad too critical. Because Virgos are worriers, they are prone to hypochondria. Virgos love material possessions and find it hard to accept anything that is not of the very best quality available.

The Virgo In Love:

Virgo is particular, practical and realistic rather than romantic. Virgos are slow-burning fuses in the art of lovemaking. Once properly ignited, situations can lead to an explosion of white heat that takes quite a while to cool down. They are, however, very fastidious and critical of the personal habits of others, which can be a big turn-off and prevent them from achieving a fulfilling relationship, or even participating at all in the messy business of involvement.

They are unwilling to discuss their innermost feelings with anyone save a very trusted confidante or lover. Anyone who wishes to get to know them deeply must be prepared to persevere, in which case they will prove a lifelong friend and ally or lover. Once Virgos have committed themselves to a lover, anyone showing interest in their lover is likely to spark a bout of jealousy. Overall, Virgos are devoted and readily willing to serve their mates.

Virgo Woman

The Virgo woman is the hardest worker of all the signs of the zodiac. Blessed with ambition, the Virgo woman will always have her eye on the prize, and work towards bettering herself and the people around her. Though practical and down to Earth, an overactive mind can lead to the Virgo woman having issues with over-thinking things, and this can extend to matters of love and sex as well as the Virgo's career.

The Single Virgo Woman: When it comes to dating, the single Virgo woman can be hard to get to know at first. Because of her logical and analytical mind, the Virgo woman tends to analyze any new partner. An Earth sign, she looks at matters of love in a very practical way, not prone to fits of whimsy like some other astrological signs.

The Virgo Woman in a Relationship: Faithful and supportive, the Virgo woman in a relationship will help her partner to further their career aspirations with as much fervor as she puts into her own. These characteristics make the Virgo woman a great date, because she is such an understanding and empathetic person.

Virgo Man

Calm and cool, it can seem as if nothing bothers the Virgo man. But beneath that smooth and unchanging veneer, the Virgo man hides an intense and passionate heart. These characteristics can make the Virgo man hard to read, making him one of the more mysterious signs of the zodiac.

The Single Virgo Man: Virgo's strong need to analyze and compound can make it hard for a Virgo man to maintain a commitment when dating. If the Virgo's date is sensitive, she can find him to be overbearing or too much to handle. When it comes to love and sex, the single Virgo man likes to always be in control both in and out of the bedroom because of his status as an Earth sign.

The Virgo Man in a Relationship: To date a Virgo man is to know the true depths of his intensity. The Virgo in a relationship is a man who can make a girl feel as if she is the only person in the world. The Virgo man takes his commitments very seriously, and will be incredibly loyal to those he deems worthy. The Virgo man in a relationship is a mate that is not for the faint of heart, and his sense of humor can be considered lacking at times. The type of man to take everything seriously, any commitment (love or just sexual) is not undertaken lightly.
