What Kind of Person Is a Virgo?

The Virgo personality is shy, reserved, introspective, analytical, practical, and perfection-oriented. Its sign personality is that of the helper who organizes, analyzes, points out errors, and solves problems. A Virgo is usually charming and dignified, into routines, and expects a lot from others and even more from themselves.

Virgo Love and Compatibility

A Virgo takes their time and sizes a person up before allowing themselves to become involved. Virgo needs stability in love. However, once involved, a Virgo is a patient, thoughtful, attentive, and adaptable lover, who is devoted, self-sacrificing, and concerned about their loved one's wellbeing.

Who Should a Virgo Marry?

Virgo's best love matches are with sensitive, nurturing Cancer and focused and ambitious Scorpio. However, practical, discriminating Virgo is also compatible with a fellow Virgo, as well as a hard-working, diligent Capricorn and a solid, stable Taurus.

Virgo Man Characteristics

A Virgo man is always impeccably groomed and has a quiet, gentle nature. He's a hard worker who's always reliable and considerate of others. When it comes to love, a Virgo man is picky, but once involved, he's a generous and caring lover. A Virgo man is attracted to an unpretentious, gentle woman who looks neat, natural, acts like a lady, and is his intellectual equal.

Virgo Woman Characteristics

A Virgo woman is a feminine, classy, modest, and private lady who comes across as an innocent old-fashioned girl. She's a generous, cheerful, witty, wise, and practical woman who will go out of her way to help anyone. A Virgo woman is attracted to a man with integrity, who is kind and possesses strength.

Virgo Constellation

The Virgo constellation, the only woman in the sky, is the second-largest constellation. Its stars form a maiden with sheaves in her hands. Although Virgo constellation is not the same as the astrological sign of Virgo, the qualities the ancients attributed to the Virgo constellation were used to give definition to the astrological sign of Virgo.

The Virgo Experience

Those with a Virgo Sun or Virgo Moon innately understand the importance and sacredness of their daily lives. However, during Virgo's season, everyone can get a taste of Virgo.
