What does the star sign Virgo mean?

The Virgo Star Sign Personality

Virgo’s are one of the most misunderstood signs of the zodiac. People think they’re fussy, critical bad-tempered and picky but that’s only because they want everything to be perfect. This is the sign of cleanliness, although lots of Virgo’s have the grottiest bedrooms and hang their clothes on the floor. They’re extremely inquisitive and have a dreadful time trying to relax. Virgo’s make fantastic friends. If a minor crisis pops up you can be sure the Virgo will have everything under control in 30 seconds. They are always on the move because they like to learn as much as they can before they take off again. They excel at work so they probably get all the boring jobs (the ones Leo wouldn’t be seen dead doing).

More About Virgo

Virgo’s are highly intelligent, interested in everything and everyone and happy to be busy with many jobs and hobbies. Many have some kind of specialised knowledge and most are good with their hands. Their nit-picking ways can infuriate their colleagues. They find it hard to discuss their innermost feelings and this can make them hard to understand. In many ways, they are happier doing something practical than dealing with relationships. These people can overdo the self-sacrificial bit and make themselves martyrs to other people’s impractical lifestyles. They are willing to fit in with whatever is going on and they can adjust to most things, but they mustn’t neglect their own needs. Although excellent communicators and wonderfully witty conversationalists, Virgo’s prefer to express their deepest feelings by actions rather than words. Most avoid touching all but very close friends and family members and they find lovey-dovey behaviour embarrassing. These people can be very highly sexed and they may use this as a way of expressing love. Virgo’s are criticised a good deal as children and are often made to feel unwelcome in their childhood homes. They, in turn, become very critical of others and they can use this in order to wound.

Many Virgo’s overcome inhibitions by taking up acting, music, cookery or sports. Acting is particularly common to this sign because it allows them to put aside their fears and take on the mantle of someone quite different. They are shy and slow to make friends but when they do accept someone, they are the loyalist, gentlest and kindest of companions. They are great company and have a wonderful sense of humour.

Virgo at Work

If you need something done right, you’ll do it yourself. In fact, you pay attention to all the details and it’s usually those small differences that really set you apart from your competitors. What helps is that you are the practical type and enjoy learning about and doing all the work yourself. Even though you can be slow to catch on to new technologies, once you embrace them, you soon know them inside out. If things start to go bad, you are excellent at getting in there and fixing the situation. You do, however, need to relax from time to time doing the everyday type of work, otherwise, you will soon become too stressed and panicked and not much use at all!

      Hi Mark,

      It can be a confusing thing, but the dates for each sign actually change slightly from year to year. It’s important to remember what sign you were born as, since that won’t change. It fluctuates slightly each year for people who are born this year.

      Wikipedia has extensive information on it if you would like to learn more.

      I hope that helped to answer your question!

    Don’t normally comment on things but read this and completely agree as I am a typical Virgo, the above comment made me laugh as my partner is Aries and when things are good it’s very good but when it’s not then it is war!
