The sixth sign of the western zodiac. This sign is associated with self-perfection altruism, honesty, cleanliness, reliability, modesty, and shrewd logic. Virgo is a mutable sign of the zodiac, indicating a Virgo’s ability to adapt well and enjoy variety. A true Virgo finds worries about every personal imperfection and is never satisfied with his or her work. Although many Virgoans are hard workers, a Virgo fears that they are not good enough in their work or with their partner. A Virgo wants to help others and complete a task to its best. Mercury rules this sign. Mercurian elements add to a Virgo’s intellect and incisive communication skills. Another sign ruled heavily by Mercury is Gemini, which makes sense since they are also associated with information and communication. Many Virgoans are sympathetic and emotionally warm despite their cold exterior, and are very dedicated friends and lovers. Unfortunately, an impersonal Virgo can display harsh forms of criticism and irritability to those who do not put in their best effort. A Virgo must learn to distinguish between destructive criticism and simple wisdom. A Virgo is knowledgeable about good health, but a Virgo can be sort of a hypochondriac in addition to their nervous behavior. Truly a Virgo can be a bit of a worrier, but it’s all done in efforts to do what’s best for themselves and those around them. This is why a Virgo can be very warm-hearted and steady, dedicated partners and parents. It may take years for a Virgo to find the right one, but when they do find someone worth keeping, devoted is Virgo’s middle name. A Virgo is not typically a jealous lover, but a Virgo expects his or her partner to be devoted and have a sense of decency. Sharing emotions must be kept private and not expressed in overt ways. A Virgo may come off as a boring lover, but this is very far from the truth. Secretly, a Virgo has a very explosive sexuality, but only with a worthy partner. A Virgo uses subtlety to attract a partner, so these types might come off as shy. A person who makes a Virgo his or her partner must realize that a union should be considered permanent. In return, a Virgo gives their partner strong loyalty and deep affectionate behavior. Before any proposal is made, a Virgo will analyze a potential partner before taking the leap. In love, a Virgo finds simplicity to be beautiful. A Virgo male will be honest and mindful, and good with memory. He will not be impressed simply by a show of sexy make up or clothes because he will find cleanliness and warm love to be every kind of sexy. A Virgo woman can be very shy, and slow to love, but in time, she will open up and reveal a truly intense romantic partner. Her love is practical, but should not be confused with boring. Having a Virgo as a friend can mean having a very kind, considerate and honest friend. On the other hand, a Virgo friend can mean having a cold and critical ally. Virgoans must be softened by a friend who will bring good humor in a Virgo’s life. When a Virgo friend falls ill, make sure to feed into his or her hypochondriac personality a little to make them feel at ease with friendly support.
