Virgo (23 August – 22 September)
Virgo Traits are universally considered to be very buttoned-down, methodical, detail-oriented, meticulous and reliable. They are also considered to be intelligent and analytical. However Virgos can be shy and can be difficult to land as a partner.
Shy, reserved, and sensitive, Virgo is complex, intellectual, and perfectionist. Virgos tend to be punctual, organized, and disciplined, and these, on top of the shyness, all lead people to believe that Virgo is also cool and uncaring. Nothing could be further from the truth, as Virgo is almost as sensitive as Cancer or Pisces.
Shyness tends to hurt the Virgo in relationships. Some people will confuse shyness with coldness, and assume Virgo wants to be left alone, and keep their distance. This is not necessarily true. The Virgo wants company, but is picky about just who that company will be. And even then, he or she will be more comfortable chatting about work or current events than anything personal.
Virgo is ruled by Mercury, which means Virgos are ruled by their head as opposed to their hearts. They tend towards skills in logic and analysis, making them quite capable scientists, writers, and editors. When they set out to do something, they set out to be the best.
Unfortunately, the perfectionist strength of Virgo is also her greatest weakness. Virgos tend to be their own worst critics, beating themselves silly until either they achieve their goal of being the bestÖor they quit in frustration.
That same critical streak can interfere with relationships, as well, since many partners do not appreciate the perfectionist criticisms that can come from their Virgo partner. This means that the few people who manage to break through the Virgoís shyness and cool exterior are often presented with someone who expects perfection from them, just like they expect from themselves. Virgos tend to keep a neat and clean house, and are the sign most likely to have an alphabetized CD collection.
The best match for Virgo is Capricorn and the worst is Aquarius. One thing some experts say about the Virgo is that while they appear cool and aloof on the outside, they may be hiding emotion that is almost too intense. Weíre so grateful someone recognizes this that we may have to briefly disappear and weep in a corner somewhere for a few minutes.
