Virgo is the sixth Sign of the Zodiac, to be exact, and that’s the way Virgos like it: exacting. Those born under this Sign are forever the butt of jokes for being so picky and critical (and they can be), but their ‘attention to detail’ is for a reason: to help others. Virgos, more than any other Sign, were born to serve, and it gives them great joy. They are also tailor-made for the job, since they are industrious, methodical and efficient. The sense of duty borne by these folks is considerable, and it ensures that they will always work for the greater good. Virgo is represented in modern Astrology by the Virgin, although this association should not be taken literally. Rather, Virgos tend to take on some of the qualities of a Virgin, things like modesty and humanity. Some might consider them repressed, although Virgins would argue that it’s a noble quality, as opposed to a negative one. Most of all, Virgos enjoy indulging their practical and logical side and poring over their projects to the nth degree. To say these folks are good at factfinding almost understates the case, since Virgos revel in their exacting (some would argue pedantic) behavior and are a whiz with minutiae.
Virgins are an asset in the workplace as they can be counted on to get things right the first time, every time — and no detail will be overlooked. They are also balanced and fair in their assessments in keeping with the Mutable Quality assigned to this Sign. Virgo is ruled by the Planet Mercury, and as portrayed in ancient Roman mythology, Mercury wasn’t one to sit still for long. This swift-footed god was a bundle of energy, both physically and mentally, and that pretty much sums up the Virgin’s makeup. A Virgo’s brain is in overdrive most of the time, which is why these folks get so much done. Those born under this Sign are also able communicators and use their mental acuity to maximum advantage. All of this brainpower can make Virgins prone to skepticism, and can even lead to the kind of overthink which surely leads to overkill. Thankfully, though, Virgos are also a studious lot and can temper their worst impulses with a bit of careful analysis. Virgos enjoy studying a situation in great detail, whether it’s a work project or a friendship. Virgins are truly interested in understanding things. The bane of many Virgos is the perfectionism which can get in the way of their usual clear thinking. ‘I’m not a perfectionist; I’m discriminating!’ a Virgo would say, happy in the knowledge that their taste is unparalleled. Along those lines, Virgos are also neat and clean, save for the occasional sloppy Virgin (they do exist). Virgins are also reliable and practical and oh-so-useful to have around.
The Element associated with Virgo is Earth, and in keeping with that, most Virgos are grounded, salt-of-the-earth types. The flash and dash can go to others, since Virgos would much rather be humble and easy-going. That said, Virgins do enjoy material possessions and are (dare we say?) picky about what they bring into their lives. Some might even go as far as calling them self-centered, but it’s really more of a desire to surround themselves with what’s right — for them. This knack for discernment also serves Virgins well in business, where their decisions are usually dead-on. Those born under this Sign are eminently sensible and use their critical eye well. While Virgins can be worrywarts, they do their best to temper these impulses. However, if this nervousness goes unchecked, it can lead to hypochondria, that ugly skeleton in the Virgo’s closet. For that reason, Virgos are extremely health conscious, to the point of being storehouses of information on diet and hygiene. Many Virgos even choose a health or medical career so they won’t miss a beat. Working out is elemental for Virgins, if only so they know intellectually that they’re helping themselves physically. See, the benefits of exercise are far more important to Virgos than the process itself. That’s why Virgos are likely to time themselves on their runs and get in those 300 sit-ups every day. When it comes to the game of love, Virgos are able to loosen up somewhat and are devoted to their lovers, even if they can be a bit jealous. Since Virgo rules the intestines, worried Virgins need to be wary of bowel upsets. Soothing relief often comes in the way of earth tones, which is why Virgins like to be surrounded by shades of tan and a warm yellow. The great strength of the Virgo-born is in their practicality, sharp mind and attention to detail. When merged with their willingness to serve, Virgos become essential helpmates. They can be picky — so what?

Virgo Man Personality: Negative Traits

Virgo Man in Relationship : Boyfriend
If anyone could be more accurate, more perfect at time-keeping than a quartz watch, then it would have to be the Virgo man. He is the precision master, the careful and discriminating quiet one in the corner of the bar, who will drink exactly the same amount of alcohol every visit, and who knows precisely the health advantages of wine and the mortality rate of heavy drinkers. This neat and tidy man often pulls weights down the gym rather than girls, and worries about his digestion and whether he should be celibate.
The Virgo man finds warm, emotional relationships difficult, and yet he seeks out quality and the perfect woman. He analyses sex and relationships with the meticulous. You see, Virgo men don’t really need anyone else in their lives. They often panic about their lack of passion, and then devote an awful lot of time worrying about it. He sometimes falls in love with the logic of a relationship, with the actual methodology of it all, but very rarely is deep and genuine emotion involved.
Virgo men have this thing about purity. Not that they are pure and virginal, but they will search for the purist form of experience and will often sublimate passion for neutrality. This is why if you’re not near perfect in his eyes you’ll be rejected before he even attempts to test you out. Sex can be a pure and impeccable experience for a Virgo with a girl in mint condition and the right motivation. But is there any life in his soul, any passion or warmth in that apparent cold and solitary physique?
He is very attractive to woman because he appears to be a challenge. If you get past that cold shoulder there might just be a sensual, sensational warm heart. He has a heart, but it’s as invulnerable as his emotions. On the surface he is the perfect. He is the sexual technocrat of the zodiac. If you can put up with his dissection of your personality, if you like a distant lover and a punctual friend, a lover who is dexterous but unemotional, he might make one of the better permanent relationships. But he compartmentalizes life; the past stays the past, the future the future. He carries little sentimental or emotional baggage with him. It’s tidier, isn’t it?
If you finally get through the cold earth that buries this man you’ll find a faithful lover. He’s not exactly a bundle of laughs, but the strong silent type who once he’s found his perfect partner will never, ever look at another woman again.
Virgo Man in Love
Although they may seem shy, introverted and self-conscious on the surface, Virgos blossom and relax once love comes their way.
Virgos sometimes find it hard to show their love. They have a thoughtful approach, and always look before they leap, analyzing all the possible consequences of a relationship.
When looking for a partner to sweep you off your feet with tender words of love and steamy nights of passion, it is wise to think twice before picking a Virgo.
It is often a real effort for them to make the first move in the game of love – they ore so sure that they are going to fail. Although they may long to cast caution to the wind, they have to conquer their emotional inhibitions first. But with the help of a loving, patient and understanding partner, love will blossom.
Once they have found a true love, Virgos can be very faithful and will work hard to keep the relationship alive and exciting. However, they can nag, carp or fault-find whenever their partners fail to come up to scratch.
Because they have such high standards, it can be a constant battle for the Virgo’s partner who has to struggle to fulfil these expectations. Rows begin when they unintentionally deeply offend their loved one in this way.
Dependable and sincere as lovers, Virgos have few illusions about affairs of the heart. Rather than lavishing affection on their partners, they prefer to show their love in small gestures and are cautious in the extreme about making a first move. They are also often far too down-to-earth to be swept away.
Virgo Man Friendship
These people are rather too self-centered for the high types of disinterested friendship. They love too much to profit materially by everything that they do, and the intellectual intimacy necessary to friendship is instinctively repugnant to them. Their natural make-up does not invite confidences from others, nor do they offer them, being far too suspicious for trust, even when their chaste emotions dictate a moderate warmth.
Should the friendship of a Virgo person be gained, he or she will treat it with the meticulous honor accorded to all of their possessions.
Virgo Man in Career
The Virgo person is a good partner. He is painstaking, meticulous, intelligent and progressive. He is not progressive in a great sense, but in small ways he is ever willing to try the new and novel. He is modest, unassuming and cooperative. He is faithful himself, and exacts a full measure of service from his employees.
The Virgo partner will never force his will, or make his ideas prevail, but his intelligence in practical matters can be trusted.
He is fussy and fretful to a fault, and demands that every “i” be dotted, and every “t” crossed. He complains eternally and is never satisfied, for his notions of perfection are based upon the ideal, and anything short is a disappointment to him.
Virgo Man as a Husband
Almost the only kind of wife for the Virgo husband is the Virgo wife. These men are not interested in love in the passionate, personal, possessive sense of the term. They are usually conventional, traditionally-minded men, who accept domesticity because it is part of the social scheme. They are willing to conduct private life on a partnership basis, as if it were a commercial enterprise. In many cases they would prefer to be bachelors, and this sign does produce the bachelor by natural inclination. They are so abstemious that they cannot bear to indulge even themselves. Stinginess, a vice that has kept many a man from matrimony, is present in either a small or large degree in the Virgo mature.
As husbands, they are much like the women of the type. The high quality Virgoan is a capable man, making comfortable provision for his wife and family. If he is fussy, critical, peevish or complaining, (especially about health and expenses) he is also composed, kindly, thoughtful and conscientious. He safeguards his home and is careful to protect it from material disaster.
Unless there are other stimulating factors in the horoscope, the Virgo husband is not virile. He has little male dominance in his make-up, and is as loath to demand surrender as he is to give himself. He does not have a passionate urge, and his deepest approach to love is flirtation, or a play at love. Erotic flights of passion would never be attempted by him, and his point of view toward even average sexual performance is not enthusiastic.
