The Character of Virgo

Virgo has an analytical, critical and perfectionist mind, sometimes to the point of excess. This being so meticulous gives those born between August 23 and September 22 a sometimes restless and obsessive temperament. What matters for a Virgo is to have constant control over themselves and the surrounding reality, always maintaining a certain detachment from situations. Those born under this sign of the earth, in fact, do not want to leave anything to chance, but rely on reason and organization.

No frills for the Virgin, she only cares about the core of things. It is certainly the most serious and responsible sign of the zodiac and in this sense it is very similar to Capricorn. Attentive not only to the circumstances, but also to her own well-being, she could turn body care into her profession. On a sentimental level, those born under the sign of Virgo initially prove to be rigid and detached, but, when they feel they can really trust the other person, they melt and show all their love with gestures rather than words. Faithful and loyal, her sense of honor pushes her to respect her commitments.

The Profile Of The Virgo Woman

The Virgo woman is conscientious, discreet and very pleasant to be around. She has an innate sense of organization and duty. The native cannot consider quitting her job without everything being perfect and tidy. She is also very comfortable in society and knows how to convey her optimism. But the native is also naturally anxious, she is often afraid of doing badly, of not giving complete satisfaction to those around her, of being abandoned or unloved.

The Virgo woman prefers shadow to light, she likes to organize a big event, but stays behind the scenes when it does. She can also have a little lesson-giving side that annoys her. But this is not intentional and if someone points it out to her, she will probably be very embarrassed and will try to make up for it right away. Because the Virgo woman has qualities of heart that are indisputable, she would not hurt a fly and loves more than anything to feel useful. She doesn’t take any decisions lightly and always thinks before she acts.

The Profile Of The Virgo Man

The Virgo man has a strong sense of duty, enjoys being of service and is pragmatic. His concern for safety and his fear of tomorrow make him a meticulous worker who does not take his task lightly. He is demanding and does not like the unexpected or wasting his time. He will do anything to organize his life so that there is never a rock in the mix. This character trait limits him in his ambitions: he would like to travel, discover new horizons, but prefers the comfort of his home and his reassuring habits.

The Virgo man is honest and attentive to others, he does not want to harm them in any way. Like his female counterpart, he does not like to put himself forward at the risk of being too discreet at times. The Virgo man is, at first glance, very attached to order and to pre-established rules. On the other hand, he can suddenly be very tolerant when it comes to those around him. The social bonds and friendships he develops are, indeed, very important to him.

Love and Sex

It is not uncommon for those born under the sign of Virgo to be often single. This does not depend on their degree of palatability, but on their being demanding, uncompromising and perfectionist. The verb to settle is absolutely not in the vocabulary of this sign of the zodiac and, before a Virgo or a Virgo manages to find the perfect partner and lives up to their (unattainable) expectations, it could take a long time. It is in this circumstance that those born between August 23 and September 22 decide to dedicate themselves only to themselves, cultivating their independence and indulging in some adventures without obligation.

But what happens when Virgos actually fall in love? They never completely transform and always maintain a certain rigor (except under the covers, where they give free rein to their wild side), however they prove to be more malleable and able to offer unconditional support. On the other hand, those who fall in love with a Virgo must be aware of the fact that this person can turn out to be rather cold and sometimes hyper-critical. However, if the feeling is genuine, he will be able to demonstrate his love in alternative but equally effective ways.


From a professional point of view, Virgos are naturally predisposed to all those jobs that require analytical and practical skills, strong problem-solving skills, organization and reasoning, such as teaching, accounting, research, craftsmanship, medicine, programming, design and gardening.

Best compatibility

Taurus: They are both earth signs and this gives them an edge. Some may also think that this couple often ends up being boring, but in the end there is no need to worry about this aspect. They are not people who let themselves be influenced by criticism.

Cancer: It is a somewhat strange combination and yet, in the end, it always ends up working. It is possible that at first the virgin does not like the strong instability of cancer and that this is not consequently attracted to her desire to dominate.

Scorpio: A very particular and interesting mix, they are mysterious and convey something difficult to explain in words. There is always a certain amount of magic in their relationship, something that hooks them and keeps them going at their best. This step is essential.

Capricorn: Perhaps the most compatible sign with virgo, they are both earth signs and love security and sincerity. At first the relationship may seem a bit particular and complex, because they are very stubborn and difficult to manage signs, they like to defend their point of view.

Worst compatibility

Virgo is less compatible with Gemini and Sagittarius, and their totally opposite sign is Pisces. With Gemini, Virgo can be frustrated, since Gemini always think roughly, while Virgo focuses on specific details. The same goes for Sagittarius. Challenges like Virgo and Pisces might complement each other, but they usually hardly work.
