Virgos pay attention to the smallest of details and their deep sense of human compassion makes them one of the most cautious signs of the zodiac. Their detail oriented approach to life ensures that nothing is left to chance, and although they are known to have a soft spot, their heart is hard to penetrate might by the outside world. They are often misunderstood, not because they are inexpressive, but because they won’t accept their feelings as true. The symbolism behind the name speaks well of their nature, born with a feeling that every experience is new and unique.
Virgo is an Earth sign, right between Taurus and Capricorn. This leads to a strong character, but one that prefers conservative, organized structure in their everyday life. It is without a doubt that Virgos live an organized life. Even on the occasions that they find themselves in a chaotic situation, their goals and dreams still have strict rules in their mind.
While their nature can plague them and keep them worrying that they missed a vital detail that will be impossible to fix, they can get stuck in the details, and become overly critical of themselves and concerned about matters that nobody else seems to be bothered by.
With Mercury as the ruling planet, Virgos have a strong sense of speech and writing, as well as all other forms of communication. Many Virgos find successful careers as writers or journalists, but their need to serve others also draws them to roles as caregivers, where helping others comes naturally.
