Virgos are at their best when they are acting and thinking in complete alignment with their true selves.
Often symbolized as the virgin, Virgos possess traits of an Earth element and are ruled by Mercury, making them notoriously intelligent, analytical, practical and highly observant. They are the sixth sign in the zodiac, and because they are represented by the virgin, are often thought to be modest, pure, sensitive and sometimes very why.
While Virgos are indeed sometimes reserved or seemingly timid, it doesn’t mean that they are closed off or unwilling to connect with others. They enjoy becoming close with people, but it should be understood that this only happens once they’ve truly gotten to know someone. Fortunately, Virgos are an absolute delight once they’ve accepted you. These naturally smart, empathic and curious individuals rarely fail to entice others.
The dichotomy that is often found within a Virgo center around the balance between being sensitive and being critical. On the one hand, Virgos possess a well-spoken, modest and intelligent demeanor. On the other, they can be incredibly critical of both themselves and the people that surround them. It is a constant battle between nurturing emotions and doing what’s practical.
Virgos are highly observant creatures, possessing an incredible eye for detail. This is often why they do not pursue others, choosing instead to simply watch and see what happens. This is also why they never really seek out attention. They’d rather be the fly on the wall listening in.
Their analytical, practical side allows them to organize every aspect of their lives very well. Which only adds merit to their work ethic and desire to achieve. They’ve outlined everything they want in life, both in the short-term and the long-term. Their unique mix of energies often sees them interested in either practical fields of study, such as math and science, or the creative side of things, such as art and literature.
Virgos are at their best when they are acting and thinking in complete alignment with their true selves. Authenticity and genuineness go a long way for the Virgo, especially when they are among groups of people.
If you have any Virgo friends, consider yourself lucky. They are some of the best people to be friends with because of how empathic, smart and capable they are. They’ll not only listen to you, but they’ll understand you, and will be able to offer advice that is truly helpful.
