virgo maiden symbol
Earth Sign: Maiden
Personality Traits

Virgo is ruled by the planet Mercury, the element Earth and the symbol for this star sign is the Virgin or the Maiden. Belonging to the Earth element, means that those born under this astrological sign are realists. They are hard-working, practical, methodical, down to earth and have a great deal of common sense. However, this does not mean Virgoans are 'plodders' - far from it! Being ruled by the planet Mercury makes them quick-witted, sharp-thinking and fast moving.

Articulate, analytical and with a sharp intelligence, Virgoans make excellent debaters and their clear and logical mind means they are likely to win most arguments and debates. However, when under pressure, those born under this sun sign have a tendency to become overly critical and are in danger of coming across as shrewish.

The symbol for Virgo is the Virgin or Maiden and this indicates a quiet, graceful temperament, modest, shy and a bit fussy. This ultra-feminine sun sign has a tendency towards perfectionism, and their greatest desire is to be of service to others. Care should be taken not to lose sight of your own needs in your effort to make other people's lives easier.

Virgo Love Life

When it comes to relationships with the opposite sex, Virgo has two specific issues to overcome. One is self-criticism, which is second nature to you and, the other is your tendency towards perfectionism. You can convince yourself that you are not good enough and this belief makes you reluctant to get involved in relationships. You sometimes forget that others are not looking for 'perfection', in fact, the very idea can scare them away!

Once in a committed relationship, those born under the star sign Virgo are faithful partners and will do everything in their power to make the relationship work. However, this sign's tendency towards perfection and self-criticism extends to their partner and they are not slow in (sometimes very harshly) pointing out the others faults.

Your symbol, the Virgin, indicates a modest and slightly inhibited attitude to the physical side of the relationship, but with a patient and loving partner this can soon be overcome.

Virgo At Work

Being an Earth sign, hard work, dedication and practical skills come naturally to those born under the star sign Virgo. Being of service to others is one of the things that make Virgo happy and it's no surprise to learn that Mother Theresa, one of the greatest humanitarians of the 20th century, was a Virgo. Any area that involves health is a good environment for Virgoans - doctor, nurse, vet, dentist and all areas of alternative medicine are good choices. Virgo's sharp intellect and attention to detail makes them excellent administrators, analysts, researchers, editors or accountants.

Virgoans tend to prefer working for someone else rather than working for themselves as they have a great need for job security. However, they work better if they are left to their own devices rather than as part of a team. Virgo's perfection can cause them to be over-critical of colleagues and, since they are not slow in coming forward with their opinions, this can cause disruption in the workplace.

Virgo Family and Friends

Discipline is the order of the day in the Virgo home and you will be hard pressed to find something out of place or a spot of dust! Virgo women are often tempted to work full-time in the home in order to satisfy their need for order and to ensure they live up to their own high standards of perfectionism. This can make living with people born under this sign stressful, and it's important that Virgo takes time out to relax and smell the roses! Again, your tendency to criticize can cause friction and have a negative impact on family and friends so, when you find yourself about to put someone right, take a deep breath and count to ten before you open your mouth! Not big into socializing, Virgo prefers to spend time with friends on a one-to-one basis. You are a born giver and your heart is in the right place, making you a great friend and partner.

Virgo Health

The stomach and the nervous system are the body areas ruled by this astrological sign. Being a born worrier, it's not surprising that the digestive system is the first to play up when something goes wrong. You worry, you become tense, and your stomach muscles tighten. This becomes a vicious circle and it's crucial for your health that you learn to manage 'worry'. Being ruled by the planet Mercury means you have an excess of mental and physical energy and this needs to be managed, ideally by pursuing intellectual areas of interest and combining this with regular exercise. Fussy Virgo may extend this trait to their eating habits and should aim for a healthy, high-fibre, organic diet in order to keep everything working smoothly.

To Maintain Balance

All work and no play will make Virgo a dull girl (or boy!), so make sure to include some rest and relaxation in your day-to-day life. Remember that no matter how 'constructive' you may think you are being when you 'criticize', a word of encouragement and a pat on the back can be far more constructive.
