About Virgo


VIRGO goes with Taurus, Capricorn, Cancer and Scorpio. (Best match is Pisces)


Best Match For Virgo Is Pisces 

The two of you can accomplish pretty much anything at all you set your minds to. A pretty good match emotionally as well. Truly a lot of synergy here, you will be able to read each others minds at times, especially the very close, soul mate type relationships!

A heavenly match, this combination is seen as steady and enjoyable with both being in tune with one another. In fact in the zodiac these two signs are 180 degrees apart, which makes them astrologically unfavorable, but they know that opposites attract and often find much compatibility. This contrast is found to be of great interest when it comes to these two signs.


Worst Match For Virgo is Aquarius 

Try to avoid this match up if you can. True love conquers all, this is true, but even true love will be tested to the extreme here! You will think the Aquarian is nuts, and he or she will think you are ancient. Communication will be difficult, and there will most likely be a power struggle.

The Aquarian no doubt may have many unexpected surprises for the skeptical Virgoans' nervous system. Although much does depend on the cultural and educational values of the partners. If there is an extreme difference between them there is almost no hope for the relationship to continue. If both sides have common interests, chances for happiness will be greatly enhanced.


Virgo Lovers Information

Virgaons are shy and introverted and often find it hard to show their love. Once they do find love they relax and begin to flourish. They are always the ones who will stop and look closely before jumping into a relationship. They must first analyse all possible consequences.

Once the Virgo has found true love, they are extremely faithful and will fight ever so hard to keep the relationship alive and thrilling. They are some of the most sincere and dependable lovers and tend to show their love in small gestures, rather then lavishing their mate's with loads of affection.


Virgo and Heartbreaks

Hurt or deceived by a loved one, the Virgoan is not inclined to get over the incident quickly. Virgoans' may become extremely critical when they sense any disillusionment.

In the case of marriage the Virgo person must keep in mind that things will happen on occasion which may cause irratation. Therefore, they must strive for understanding or else eventually a parting of ways and much sorrow will result.

Virgoans' ideals for love are high, but there is also a restless element in their nature. This in turn may result in their need for change in their life regarding matters of the heart. Often mental and physical changes are sought.

Virgo Negative Traits

Fussy and a worrier. Overcritical and harsh. Perfectionist and conservative.


Virgo Personality Profile

Sometimes modest, and quite often shy, Virgo can be one of the most difficult mates to "land". It is not that they are playing hard to get, it's not that they are not interested, it's the shyness. Oddly, the more they like you, they more shy they behave around you! You won't find the modest virgo "flashing" anyone in the near future.

Has a very keen and sharp intellect. They are methodical and extremely precise. Slow t make moves, as they analyse their knowledge, as to apply it usefully. They are practical and imaginative and develop skills that enable them to improve their being.


Some Negatives: 
Can be obsessed with the idea of order. Can do and will do anything to achieve this. Known to be nagging and fault finding. Most have shy tendencies, are very introverted and self conscious. Having hypochondriac illusions.

Very reliable and punctual, those born under the virgo sun sign will be easy to count on. They will help you out in a pinch and do things for you that go above and beyond the call of duty. You will find that many war heroes are Virgo since this astrological sign is really big on courage.

Extremely practical and diligent, this person can be counted on to not over indulge or get addicted to things too readily. Extremely intelligent, many scientists and mathematicians are Virgo.


An Interesting Sun Sign

The Virgo likes to analyze things and are not comfortable until they figure out all angles of the problem they currently are focused on. Virgo will make great stock brokers, financial advisor or any things else that requires deep thought.

This sign is the symbol of chastity, the sign of the virgin which shows decency and a simplicity of style. The virgoan possesses a well balanced mind and have superior intellectual abilities. They are considered by friends and family to be courteous, diplomatic, cool and rather reserved. They are real thinkers; having a quick and keen perception. Virgoans' are renown for their constructive ideas and sound advice, with an active intuitive power that gives them a deep understanding of human nature and motives by others.

Those of this sign are critical of home and appearance and seem overly practical in anything that they do. They are loyal as partners and friends and are caring to the ones that they love. Much of their pleasure is derived from social activity, although some may mistake the virgoans reserve for a lack of concern or interest.

Virgoans will often develop skills which help them to improve themselves and their immediate surroundings. Tangible achievements are important to them and they place great pride in them.

Typically labeled as being perfectionists, they are more concerned with having a firm grip on their environment. They will however, immerse themselves in the smallest of details to enrich their understanding of how something works.


Virgo Health Concerns

This constellation is governed by the bowels of humanity; which is of significance as the intestines comprise a vital section of the digestive organism. The intestines and abdomen are often problems associated with the Virgoan.

Virgoans' with their passion for attention to detail has given them a reputation for hypochondria. Body and mind are as one to them. And if anything upsets their orderly process both may be affected.

Bowel diseases, indigestion, colic and intestinal infection may be caused to undue stress and anxiety. Insomnia may also be an issue as Virgoan's find it difficult to switch off their nervous tension.

Relaxation, meditation, regular stretching, massage and deep breathing should help ease tension. Also, taking preventive measures such as sticking to healthy diet and relaxing will be of great benefit.

 

Virgoans Can Be Obsessive

This sign often finds the Virgoan to be critical of most things, appearance is especially important to them. Disorder is completely foreign to their nature and irritates their senses. When all is in sync, the Virgoan is allowed to finally slip into their natural space of body and mind indulgence.

 

Virgoans Are Often Diplomatic

Tactful and adroit, the Virgoan, has a way of dealing with others. They are great conversationalists and appear to be cool and reserved. Their natural bearing and outward behavior command respect and admiration from others.

The Virgo Sun Sign - Zodiac Information

The constellation Virgo is the sixth sign of the zodiac. According to Greek mythology the constellation of Virgo immortalizes the Goddess Astraea, the daughter of the supreme deity "Zeus". Astraea was sent by her father to live among mortals to teach and instruct them to obey the laws of the so-called ‘Golden Age'. Which was a time of peace and abundant harvests. However, in time mankind began to fall back into their evil ways, with that Astraea, being sickened by what was taking place, left the world of the mortals and resumed her place among the gods.


Virgo is the only zodiacal sign represented by a female. It is sometimes thought of as a potentially creative girl, delicately lovely; sometimes as a somewhat older woman, intelligent but rather pedantic and spinsterish. The latter impression is sometimes confirmed by the Virgoan preciseness, refinement, fastidious love of cleanliness, hygiene and good order, conventionality and aristocratic attitude of reserve.

They are usually observant, shrewd, critically inclined, judicious, patient, practical supporters of the status quo, and tend toward conservatism in all departments of life. On the surface they are emotionally cold, and sometimes this goes deeper, for their habit of suppressing their natural kindness may in the end cause it to atrophy, with the result that they shrink from committing themselves to friendship, make few relationships, and those they do make they are careful to keep superficial. But the outward lack of feeling may, in some individuals born under this sign, conceal too much emotion, to which they are afraid of giving way because they do not trust others, nor do they have confidence in themselves and their judgments. This is because they are conscious of certain shortcomings in themselves of worldliness, of practicality, of sophistication and of outgoingness. So they bring the art of self concealment to a high pitch, hiding their apprehensiveness about themselves and their often considerable sympathy with other people under a mantle of matter-of-factness and undemonstrative, quiet reserve. They are still waters that run deep. Yet in their unassuming, outwardly cheerful and agreeable fashion, they can be sensible, discreet, well spoken, wise and witty, with a good understanding of other people's problems which they can tackle with a practicality not always evident in their own personal relationships.

Both sexes have considerable charm and dignity, which make some male Virgoans appear effeminate when they are not. In marriage they can be genuinely affectionate, making good spouses and parents, but their love making is a perfection of technique rather than the expression of desire, and they must be careful not to mate with a partner whose sex drive requires a passion they cannot match.

They are intellectually enquiring, methodical and logical, studious and teachable. They combine mental ingenuity with the ability to produce a clear analysis of the most complicated problems. They have an excellent eye for detail but they may be so meticulous that they neglect larger issues. Also, although they are realists, they may slow down projects by being too exact.

They are practical with their hands, good technicians and have genuine inventive talents, Thoroughness, hard work and conscientiousness are their hallmarks, and they are such perfectionists that, if things go wrong, they are easily discouraged. Because of their ability to see every angle of a many-sided question, they are unhappy with abstract theorizing. Appreciating the many different points of view as they do, they find philosophical concepts difficult, and they vacillate and have no confidence in any conclusions at which they arrive. With these qualities, they are better as subordinates than leaders. Responsibility irks them and they often lack the breadth of strategic vision that a leader needs Virgoans are essentially tacticians, admirable in the attainment of limited objectives. Their self distrust is something they project on to other people and tends to make them exacting employers, though in the demands they make on those under them they temper this attitude with justice. They have potential abilities in the arts, sciences and languages. Language especially they use correctly, clearly, consciously and formally, as grammarians and etymologists rather than for literary interests, yet they are likely to have a good memory for apt quotations. Although they are well suited for careers in machine drawing, surveying and similar occupations, they are better fitted for a job in a library or office than a workshop.

Their minds are such that they need the stimulus of practical problems to be solved rather than the mere routine or working to set specifications that need no thought. They are careful with money and their interest in statistics makes them excellent bookkeepers and accountants. They also make good editors, physicists and analytical chemists. They may also find success as welfare workers, ministering to those less fortunate than themselves. They can be doctors, nurses, psychologists, teachers, confidential secretaries, technologists, inspectors, musicians, critics, public speakers and writers especially of reference works such as dictionaries and encyclopedias. Both sexes have a deep interest in history, a feature recognized by astrological authorities for at least two hundred years. If they go in for a business career their shrewdness and analytical ingenuity could tempt them into dishonesty, though they usually have enough moral sense to resist temptation. Female Virgoans may find a career in fashion, for they have a flair for dress, in which they can be trend setters. In any profession they choose the natives of this sign readily assimilate new ideas, but always with caution, conserving what they consider worth keeping from the past. They love country life but are unlikely to make good farmers, unless they can contrive to carry out their work without outraging their sense of hygiene and cleanliness.

Their faults, as is usual with all zodiacal types, are the extremes of their virtues. Fastidious reticence and modesty become old-maidishness and persnicketiness; balanced criticism becomes carping and nagging; and concern for detail becomes overspecialization. Virgoans are liable to indecision in wider issues and this can become chronic, turning molehills of minor difficulties into Himalayas of crisis. Their prudence can become guile and their carefulness, turned in on themselves, can produce worriers and hypochondriacs.

Possible Health Concerns... Virgo is said to govern the hands, abdomen, intestines, spleen and central nervous system. Illnesses to which its natives are prone include catarrh, cold, coughs, pleurisies, pneumonia and nervous instabilities. Their natures make them inclined to worry and this makes them vulnerable to stomach and bowel troubles, including colic and ulcers. Male Virgoans may have trouble with their sexual organs. Both sexes are strongly interested in drugs and esoteric cuisine and as their delicate stomachs require them to be careful about their diet, it is essential that they treat their fascination with exotic food with extreme care.


PROBLEMS THAT MAY ARISE FOR YOU, AND THEIR SOLUTIONS


As with all sun signs, we all have unique traits to our personalities. When these traits are suppressed, or unrealized, problems will arise. However, with astrology we can examine the problem and assess the proper solution based on the sun sign characteristics. As a Virgo you may see things below that really strike home. Try the solution, you most likely will be amazed at the results. If you find yourself on the receiving end of the negatives below, it is because you are failing to express the positive.

Problem:  Finding yourself frequently alone and unable to keep friends for more than a few weeks.
Solution:  Try not to be argumentative over much and the constant criticism that Virgos give to their companions are not endearing qualities to have. Try to live and let live, they will love you for it.

Problem:  People tend to avoid making close contact with you.
Solution:  Being too preoccupied with health and making it a continual topic of conversation. Try to keep your tips and suggestions about health and health products to yourself unless asked for them.

Problem:  Dissatisfied with the way your life is turning out; no excitement or change to speak of.
Solution:  You may be restricting yourself by reducing your life to a set of theories and pigeon-holes. Try to express the positive by first asking yourself, Who or what are you serving; are you devoted or are you enslaved. Answer those questions and then start a new path that includes your true worth.

Problem:  You may feel that your life and your climb to success is a steep hill that you may never be able to scale.
Solution:  Try expressing the positive traits of your finely tuned analytical reasoning, employing the light touch with employees and coworkers, while expressing genuine concern for all; You will find those mountains turning into hills that you run right over.
