The Virgo zodiac sign are those born from August 22 and September 23. Those who are born between those dates have the following Virgo characteristics:
Of course, being a Virgo can have some drawbacks. Some of the drawbacks of being a Virgo are:
Virgo and Independence:
Virgos are very resourceful and independent. They rarely need to rely on other people and utilize their intelligence to get the job done on their own. However, due to this nature, their creativity suffers and they end up living regular, routine daily lives. Unlike Taurus, they aren’t looking for that type of lifestyle, but rather just end up in that situation. Virgos are known to dwell on the past and are overly complicated, but make up for it by not needing anyone’s approval to satisfy themselves.
Virgo and Friendship:
Friends of Virgos usually go to them for advice that requires some logical thinking; Virgos have a solid understanding of their surroundings and analyze situations before taking action, making them one of the most reliable friends you can have when you are in trouble. They are somewhat closed off people, but if you get close enough to one, they will be honest and loyal to you for as long as you are friends. Virgos will not talk about their personal lives that much, but will spend time invading yours. They always try to control their friends’ lives if they do not think it’s on the right track, but it is always in good faith. They just want everyone they know to have an improved life. That being said, it is important to be patient with your Virgo friends.
Virgo and Business/Money:
Being the intelligent, analytical people they are, Virgos are great investigators and researchers because they have the ability to understand situations. They are also great at reading into a person’s emotions to learn the truth. Virgos are very good at solving problems that have a straight answer, but are not great at lateral thinking.
Virgo and Temperament:
Similar to Taurus, Virgos like to spend time analyzing a situation before getting themselves into anything serious. From investment opportunities to vacations, Virgos find it important to know all the details before taking a risk. While this may make them seem like they are indecisive, it is actually that they are being careful. Virgos understand that what you see is what you get, and know that reality is just what it seems. While their faith may be lacking, they make up for it by being able to fully comprehend the extent of their “reality” and plan accordingly. A Virgos mind is a powerful thing for them; if they see the world as a cold place, they will have a negative outlook on life. However if they see the world in a positive way, everything they see will be light and happy. One thing that a Virgo has trouble with is analyzing their own feelings; whenever they get the chance, they will just pretend everything is alright and get past the problem.
Virgo on the Inside:
Virgos spend a lot of time trying to arrange the thoughts in their mind. They end up spending so much energy rearranging their thoughts that they have no energy to arrange their surroundings and relationships. This causes people to think that Virgos are unkind; however, they just have problems expressing themselves when they haven’t gotten everything figured out yet. Virgos may also be seen as being overly analytical. They spend a lot of time dwelling over problems that others may not find an issue anymore. This is partly due to their lifelong goal of bringing order to the chaos in this world. Virgos are very sensitive and like to be appreciated for the things they do. When they are not appreciated, they may be hurt, but a Virgo will never show that pain.
A Virgo’s essence lies in his mind. Everything he believes to be true affects what he sees in the world. This is counterbalanced by his ability to think about things calmly and make decisions without any rash actions. Virgos are always typing to improve themselves and the people around them and that may sometimes cause strife amongst their friends, however, they are doing it all in good faith and are very honest, earnest people.
Virgo and Romance
Virgos do not open themselves up to you immediately. Things may be weird or awkward at first, and you may find yourself wondering if this Virgo truly loves you, however, as time passes a Virgo becomes more and more comfortable and willing to share themselves. Eventually, the Virgo’s love will become very sensual. Similar to the Taurus, Virgos are very straightforward and direct. They are not the ones that will sweep you off your feet, but they are the ones that you can look to in 20 years and are happy you are with them. They do not look for one night stands, but rather, long lasting relationships.
Dating a Virgo Woman:
Virgo women may seem detached from the rest of the world, but they are actually very shy and timid and only put up that exterior as a defense mechanism. Once you penetrate this cold barrier, she will be open and warm to you. Once they find someone they can share their love with, Virgo women are strong, loving, and passionate. They generally play hard to get, but once you get her, you will be glad you chased after her. She will always be devoted to you and put you first. They are perfect for men that are trying to take things slow and find someone they can truly love, not just a short fling.
Dating a Virgo Man:
Like Virgo women, the men put up a very rough exterior. They challenge others intellectually and make it difficult for people to get close without having the same level of knowledge, but once someone gets close, they warm up easily. Virgo men have a lot of respect for women and will treat them like their equal. They will never be condescending or scornful of a woman’s intelligence and find it attractive to need to compete in terms of the mind. Virgo men are difficult to understand, but with enough patience, they will open up everything. They are sensitive people that are great at holding up conversations. Any woman that wants to look for a stable, solid relationship needs to find a Virgo man.
