Main Virgo Characteristics

The Perfectionist

'We’re all in this alone.’
~ Virgo, Lily Tomlin

The sixth sign of the zodiac is Virgo, an Earth sign ruled by the messenger god, Mercury. Mercury rules thought and Virgo is a thinking sign. Virgo has to work hard to shut down the parade of annoyances and focus on detail that can make life unnecessarily complicated.

• Virgo is the most flexible of the Earth signs and you enjoy different and challenging experiences. Seeking perfection, however, is a lifelong quest.

• Virgo is one of the hardest working signs in the zodiac. Many Virgos are late bloomers though, because you prefer to learn about a subject thoroughly, so you avoid making mistakes.

• Virgos have an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and lightning-quick mind.

• Others may mistakenly view you as being inhibited, but it’s more about practising discernment than anything else.

• Your attention to detail is legendary and your mind works by making lists.

• Hygiene and cleanliness is a big deal to you.

• People get the impression you are interfering and pushy when all you really want to do is remedy imperfection.

• Nothing impedes your creativity and sensuality more than being criticized.

• The Virgo man demonstrates perfectionism in exact planning of details. He pays attention to his own personal grooming and appreciates a partner who does the same.

• The Virgo woman has an internal sense of organisation. She is deeply sensual even though she never advertises it.

Many notable writers are born under the sign of Virgo: Agatha Christie, Stephen King, D.H. Lawrence and Leo Tolstoy to name a few.
