Chances are the first time you meet a Virgo they will seem analytical and judgmental. If you make it another round, you will see a totally different person. A Virgo is a little too obsessed with every detail in life making them a master at whatever they are passionate about. However, this usually leads to a lack of attention to their personal relationships in the background. And you’ll never seem to phase a Virgo. They are the least emotional of all the signs. Their continual pursuit of perfect means they are always evaluating a situation and making practical and grounded decisions.
Virgos will be at home doing things like being a tax auditor, nutritionist, naturopath, professional house cleaner, executive assistant, statistician, archivist, systems analyst, welder or lab technician. They fit best in any job that requires great attention to detail. Don’t rush a Virgo! What you see as moving at a snails pace is really their amazing analytical brain is best at. They are constantly looking for flaws and mistakes so you can be sure the work they do will be as perfect as possible. You don’t have to worry too much about your Virgo employee getting along with others. Do watch out for a new hire ruffling some feathers of veteran employees. Their critical sense of self will have them unabashedly pointing all sorts of mistakes to any one regardless of their stature in the company.
If you find yourself working for a Virgo, don’t take their criticisms of your work personally. They don’t mean any ill will, they just want perfection from everyone. Keep your presentations and ideas to a practical level. Virgos are not impressed by lavish brainstorming. They want down to earth do-a-able proposals. Make sure you remind any Virgo in your life to take a break once in awhile. They have a tendency to be workaholics so give them time and space to relax and feel safe to let their hair down.
A Virgo will take their time to pick a forever partner. Not one for flings, if a Virgo finds enough flaws on the first date they are done and will move on quickly. To catch the heart of the Virgo you must first catch their mind. Forever evaluating the practical things in life, you must prove to be a good provider, partner and parent before they will fall. You may never feel like the Virgo has fallen head over heels for you though. Often accused of being emotionless, Virgos put their feelings off to the side and scrutinizes the sensible in every situation even when it comes to dealings of the heart. Once you’ve passed the first set of tests, you will be set to go on a traditional old fashioned romantic pursuit. The only other thing to note is to be patient about being second on the list to their job. With the wheels always spinning, they will forget to take a break to enjoy you. It will take some coaxing but once the deal is done, they can turn their attentions back to you.
Best Matches are Taurus, Cancer and Capricorn
Worst Matches are Gemini, Libra and Aries
Virgos parents have little patience for shenanigans from the kids. They will be quick to correct behaviors and dole out a fitting punishment. Children will probably find it exhausting to have a Virgo for a parent. They will have high expectations for success and detail work and will have a hard time parenting a Leo, Aries or Scorpio. Kids will enjoy an ever ready parent who will always drop everything to help their children with a school project or practicing a skill. Unfortunately those same kids will be subject to many lectures from the Virgo parent. It is not enough to assign punishments, they feel the need to explain in detail the who, what, where and whys of the infraction. Many kids will probably fall asleep during these lengthy monologues but the few who listen closely they will be privy to good advice and wisdom. Virgo dads will always be ready to help his kids out but can get irritated by emotional outbursts. Mommy Virgos will always keep a clean house and will go to great lengths to make her brood do the same. When picking out a gift for mom or dad, go for the practical and down to earth, they HATE surprises or things of waste or excess. Go for the flower in a pot rather than a bouquet that will die in a week or two.
Honest and generous to a fault, the Virgo friend is not likely to pull punches. While they are a great shoulder to cry on, when you pause to dry your tears they will get going on all the things you should have done and what you need to do now to make it right. But take heart, the more they talk the more they love you. If they didn’t care for you deeply, they would not take the time to help you get through. Not a fan of head games, the Virgo friend is one of sincerity and devotion. You be honest with them and they will be honest with you and both of you will have many years of fun.
Inside their Head
The greatest fear of a Virgo is imperfection. They have one mind for detail in all things in life and will not stop until everything is just right.
