Belonging to the mutable group and the earth element Virgos are generally ordered and good at organizing their life and yours! Ruled by the planet Mercury (until Vulcan is re-discovered!) Like the original meaning of virgin, you are a very self-perfecting person. You can always sense quickly when something is wrong and there is no rest for anyone until order has been restored. You may be truly shy and modest, hiding your deep sensuality behind a rather cool and critical exterior. Virgo is the sign of abundance, but you have always to worked hard to get it. You are a good organizer with not just talking about it but actually getting it done.

 

Analytical Virgo, as the sixth sign of the zodiac, you represent purity, perfection, and practicality. Virgos put things in order to unify the world. Mercury, the planet of mental and intellectual principles, and ruler of Virgo, makes you a methodical and organized worker who brings an analytical, systematic approach to all facets of life. You project a serious image overall, one only strengthened by your problem-solving skills and fastidious refinement.

Yours is the second of the earth signs, which makes you a
dependable, responsible individual. You are reserved and modest in your behavior, and discriminating in your choices. You connect strongly to Mother Earth, and are therefore extremely health-conscious. As a Virgo, you rule the sixth house of the horoscope, associated with the quality of work. Furthermore, this section of the chart shows how you analyze, deal with, and communicate details. The sixth house also involves health matters in general. Virgo mode is mutable, which means that you are a levelheaded communicator who makes sure that whatever is being discussed is precise and accurate. Your role in a team is that of quality control.

Your strengths lie in your
sharp mental powers, especially in scientific, or technical areas. You are well spoken and witty, and have a good understanding of other people's problems. Above all, you're a great problem solver, providing clear analysis to complex issues.  Your weaknesses are that you tend to be too much of a perfectionist, which can lead you to pedantic, petty, or schoolmasterly behavior. Your critical and sometimes negative outlook on life can be a downer for others, who may describe you as reserved, overly critical, and timid.

Virgo Rising has the ability to adapt to changing circumstances and different people. Your willingness to adapt however, is invariably accompanied by a word or two of complaint. Nowhere is the critical facility associated with Virgo more observable than when this sign rules the Ascendant.

Always seeking perfection, you find it difficult to accept situations or people as they are. You must learn to be more sensitive, my dear, and restrict your passion for constantly finding fault, for even well-meaning criticism can be hurtful and badly received. Practicality and conservatism feature strongly in your personality. While you do not favour flamboyant displays of affection and can even present an excessively puritanical facade in public, you can nevertheless be quite sensual and sexually-oriented in private.

You can be totally organized and attentive to details in some areas, while at the same time be appallingly disorganized and sloppy in other areas. How confusing. How contrary! You are health conscious to the point of obsession and should your natal sun or moon be in one of the Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, or Pisces) or in Capricorn (which tends toward excessive worry), this concern with health can develop into severe hypochondria.

Ruled by Mercury, the messenger of the gods, you are extremely talkative and prone to gossip. Endlessly curious about everything that goes on in your immediate environment, at times you seem to be everywhere at once. Ideas and projects to take up every waking moment. The knack for collecting and communicating your ideas and information effortlessly attracts information and news from everyone else as well. You readily absorb stores of information which you are happy to share with anyone who takes the time to listen.

Virgo rising gives a talent for communication and attention to detail that makes super salesmen, efficient negotiators, and eager travellers. You like to keep busy and useful. You are nosy, so you would make a great researcher or journalist. Sitting around doing nothing makes you nervous and irritable, but you enjoy collecting such things as recipes, postage stamps, or medical remedies. Respiratory illnesses, nervousness, and allergies are apt to be common physical complaints.

 

Virgo Children

If your child is born in Virgo, he or she is cautious, discreet, and not only contemplative but industrious. Virgos will enjoy the things money can buy and will gladly work for them. The Virgo child is self assured but not easily content with the commonplace. He or she will learn quickly but may worry at times. Virgos will be sensitive to their surroundings and have a thirst for knowledge. They will be very careful of details and can view things with a critical eye. The Virgo child is methodical and spends little time speculating on the unknown.

The Virgo child can absorb and learn anything he or she is determined to learn. Virgos want facts; in business they work for greater improvements, sometimes unobserved and unappreciated. These individuals are greatly affected by marriage and expect purity and constancy in mates. Virgo children are persevering and ingenious as well as very intelligent, but rarely control their own lives or make changes unaided. They make money and spend it for pleasure and education instead of on material things. 

 

Virgo can succeed in life as an agent or intermediary for a large company, or can be a trusted executive assistant for a public or political figure. He or she excels in general commercial ventures, imports and exports, and matters connected with the earth and its products. Virgo persons generally rise in life through their own merits. Writing, bookkeeping, record keeping, research, and the instruction of others lure this person.

Time is precious for Virgo man and if you make him wait, he will consider that as an insult. He hates to hear criticism and hates to be criticize. If
he is criticizing other people, then he must be influenced by other Zodiac He is and he likes to be a perfectionist. He always think he is doing the right and appropriate thing , and often he thinks he makes no mistake. He is a bright guy and could accept comments if he thinks it can improve himself. He is the type who well adjusted to make changes.  He will spent money carefully and spent it worthwhile. He will only extravagant for his personnel pleasure only. He is quite romantic, a type of guy who can drive 100 miles just to tell you how much he misses you. If he does not care about you, he will not even spent a dime to call you locally. Long distant special low rate call is also out of the question.

He hates rough and crude people. His woman has to be clean and dress well. He inspects any thing in details beside being a perfectionist, so you could be lying in your bikini with a perfect figure and he can suddenly comments you about your big feet. If you gain 2 pounds , he may comments you are getting too fat. Before going out with this kind of guy, look at yourself head to toe in the mirror and ask yourself if you are really and entirely ready. Unless he dates a model, then he will have less comments. He is neat and tidy, so his life always in a schedule, a fix time to lunch, the same time to go home. He is well knowledge about food and conscious about nutrition, so you won't see this guy eating a junk food, or strange and exotic food for sure.

You will see him in social events or party if only necessary. He is gifted with acting, so if he says he can not go out with you because he is sick, then you will belief him. He is a hard to please when it comes to what to eat, how to work, what kind of a woman to date. He always neat and tidy all the times, even if he is in the army, he will be the cleanest soldier in the camp. He likes to speak properly with no slang. He hates laziness and lazy people. He always act like a boring mature adults, but getting to know him , you will know he has his own charm.

He always see things clearly, so he is not the type to be blinded by love. He is a kind and cool guy, but if constantly irritate with rudeness,
ignorant, or stupidity then he will show you that he is annoyed. You may see a guy in this Zodiac dress up in an old shirt and old Jean, but if you look carefully, you will see that his hair is neat and unconsciously he will touch his hair a lot. His desk is always neat and if he sees small scrap paper on the floor, he will pick it up or put it in the basket.

People may think he is selfish, because when he says "No", he really means it. Any favor asked , he will help but always in his own limit. The more he see faults in others, the less he wants people to see his. If you want him to change his faults, try to tell him gently or he could take it as an insult. He wants love that comes with quality, so he only has a few loves in his life. Woman's trick will not work with him. If he breaks up with a woman, he will also try to avoid all her friends and her environments too. He is very picky and every breaking up, he will be double careful next time. He can sweep woman with his charm, but he likes to keep his relationship like a friend. He likes a sincere self confident woman, neat and clean,perfect and tidy. A real two "P" , picky and perfectionist Zodiac.

Flowers and sweet word can calm her down. If you want to say sorry , make it brief and straight forward. Do not drag your apologetic words into a long making it up events, it could lead you to another world war. She likes her man to dress nice and clean. She is good in details especially with money. Do not make she thinks that she is a clown or funny. In the beginning of knowing her, please try not to glance at other pretty woman so much. Early period of dating her, try not to hold her so much in public, it would not be a proper thing to do. She loves books, stage play and music and likes to criticize about them too.  Criticism woman is her icon including big and small things in life starting
from your hair, your dress , and the way you talk. If you are in love with her, be as almost perfect as your can.

Virgo Women and their Zodiac Characteristics

 

VIRGO

 Career

 Characteristic   |     Relationship   |    Virgo Man

 Virgo Woman   |    Famous Virgo    |    Wallpaper   |     Top    

 

Need a quick fix? Call a Virgo. Those born under this Sign simply love to analyze and bat things around and are bound to come up with some answers. The mental, smart Virgo is a talker and a helper and likes to facilitate solutions as a service to others. Even so, Virgos crave independence and a space of their own, so don't expect all their cards to be laid on the table -- some things are best kept private. Members of this Earth Sign are forever realistic and will set practical, achievable goals for themselves and the others on their team. Virgos are task-oriented and highly organized, a very loyal colleague and often the conscience of their group. They will get things done but are often reluctant to take the credit! The Virgo's perfectionism can often lead to nervousness and ill health, so a bit of balance, the yin with the yang, is a lesson well learned.

If there's one thing a Virgo can do (and they can usually do plenty, thanks to their strong work ethic), it's create a winning team. Their discerning eye and discriminating style is hard to beat. Virgos find it easy, and a pleasure, to be the thinker, problem-solver, organizer and supporter of the team. It's important for them, though, to take care of themselves as well! All work and no play can make anyone a dull boy. When Virgos remember to criticize less and emphasize (the positives) more, a lot can be accomplished.
The Virgo office is highly organized, with a slew of computers and other electronic gadgetry for maximum efficiency. Slobs should definitely hang out elsewhere. When a car is required, a midnight blue Mercedes that purrs like a kitten is both elegant and reliable. If it's time to talk business, take the Virgo out for a light salad in a squeaky-clean restaurant, and you're bound to get results. Virgos are well suited as chemists, doctors, investigators, nutritionists, managers and entrepreneurs -- veterinarians, too, the better to help a pup in need.

VIRGO     

 Relationship

 Characteristic   |     Career    |     Virgo Man

 Virgo Woman   |    Famous Virgo    |    Wallpaper   |     Top

 

Virgo, a feminine sign, is fastidious, practical and realistic rather than romantic. Flexible Virgo, a mutable sign, readily adapts to change. Instinctively responsive to the needs of others, you readily adapt to different people and changing circumstances by finding ways to make yourself useful. When the spotlight is not aimed directly at you, but on a product or a service you offer, you make an excellent salesperson, or effective negotiator and can be a good manager, though you should avoid being too critical of those who cannot match your high personal standards.

Now some Virgos are not above using an inability to achieve perfection as the excuse for their own idleness and unproductiveness. Tut, tut. This is out of character with your true nature. Sloppy, disorganized, and irresponsible is not the Virgo Way.

Moreover, your own bad habits do not in the least inhibit you from criticizing others for the same behaviour. Your analytical ability makes you an excellent critic of the talent and performance of those more skilled than yourself. Whatever you do needs to be of a practical and helpful nature; you need not wallow in self-criticism because you yourself fail to meet those same unrealistic standards.

In the art of lovemaking, Virgo is a slow-burning fuse that, once properly ignited, leads to an explosion of white heat which takes quite a while to cool down.

You are however very fastidious and critical of the personal habits of others, which can be a big turn-off and prevent you from achieving a fulfilling relationship, or even participating at all in the messy business of involvement.

Able to talk your way into or out of anything, you are generally perceived to be quite witty and entertaining, if a tad too critical and prone to hypochondria. You are unwilling to discuss your innermost feelings with anyone save a very trusted confidante, so anyone who wishes to get to know you deeply must be prepared to persevere, in which case you will prove a lifelong friend and ally, who can reach great heights of sexual attainment.
 

Behavior When In Love

The typical Virgo:
  • iooks for quality
  • is frightened by overt romance
  • may wait years for the right person
  • once in love, loves warmly and steadily
  • is devoted to the loved one
  • will rarely give cause for any jealousy
  • will do anything to avoid breaking up


     

Expectations

The typical Virgo expects:
  • devotion from the partner
  • a sense of decency
  • to enjoy platonic flirtation
  • to be fussed over when feeling down
  • personal matters to be kept private
  • feelings to be handled with great care


     

 

Virgo and Sex

When a typical Virgo makes love it is a pure-minded, natural, healthy act. Virgo only enjoys sex when it is with someone who has gained Virgo's confidence. Celibacy, for short or long periods, is not usually difficult for Virgo. In general, Virgoan's are looking for a spouse, not a one-night stand or an affair. A Virgo who has not had his or her fragile sense of self undermined in youth will enjoy sex. The bedside library may include informative books on sex, because Virgos like to understand the finer details. Virgo (male or female) tends to seduce with finesse, charm, and subtlety. The fact that typical Virgoan instincts are chaste does not mean that Virgos are virgins. The Virgin of astrology is a symbol of self- improvement and fertility.

Virgo and Partner

The person who contemplates becoming the marriage or business partner of a typical Virgo must realize that Virgo will regard the union as permanent, although the finer details can be flexible. Given this, the person who partners Virgo can expect absolute loyalty. Virgos make strong commitments because they combine duty with devotion. The Virgo will approach a proposal with great caution and will analyze the pros and cons throughly before getting involved. This is an excellent approach to any long-term partnership but may sound rather cold and clinical in the case of a proposed marriage.

Virgo Man As A Partner

He will be thoughtful, considerate, and honest. He will remember dates, anniversaries, and agreements. He can be a wizard when it comes to the sensible balancing of the budget. He will love, honor, and criticize, but will not expect to be obeyed, waited on, or be dazzled by sexy make-up and clothes. However, he will want cleanliness and a lot of warmth and sincere respect.

Virgo Woman As A Partner

She is shy but as tough as nails when the need arises. In business, she will be cool, intelligent, and fully commited. Slow to love, Virgo woman is not interested in anything less than true love. When it happens, she will love intensely. She will only break a partnership if there has been hypocrisy. She is the most practical romantic in the zodiac.

Polar Sign

Pisces is the complementary opposite sign to Virgo. From Pisces, Virgo can learn to get a little and float with the tide, giving imagination a chance to develop. In this way, Virgo can begin to accept human imperfections, especially his or her own.


Virgo and Friends

In general, Virgo likes a friend who is tidy, clean, and intelligent with a broad range of interests. They prefer people who are not given to big shows of emotion and are attracted to those who offer a sense of peace and serenity. Virgos love any pageantry that gives them an outlet for their tightly controlled emotions. Hence they are delightful companions at these events Virgos are discriminating and have a fine artistic taste and a wealth of information on many subjects. They are not coarse and do not waste money. Virgos are loyal to their friends and will be extremely kind, considerate, and helpful. However, Virgos are nervous worriers, and a friend who in some way feeds the worries will reduce Virgo to a nervous heap. Virgos can be cold and critical, so a friend who softens the barbed remarks with caring laughter will bring out the Virgo wit. Most Virgos find it almost impossible to admit they are occasionally wrong.


A compatibility chart, below, lists those with whom Virgo is likely to have the most satisfactory relationships.

Considered one of the world's greatest novelists, Leo Nikolaevich Tolstoy is famous especially for the 19th century classics War and Peace (1865-69) and Anna Karenina (1877-78). Although he was born into nobility, Tolstoy spent much of his life as a champion of Russia's peasant class, notably in the field of education. He began his literary career in the 1850s, publishing a trilogy about his own life: Childhood (Detstvo, 1852), Boyhood ( Otrochestvo, 1854) and Youth (Yunost', 1857). Tolstoy served in the Russian army during the Crimean War, and his book Sevastopol Sketches (Sevastopol'skie Rasskazy, 1855-56) was well-received in literary circles and praised for its realistic depiction of war. After travelling throughout Europe, Tolstoy returned to the family estate and devoted himself to raising a family and writing his great psychological novels War and Peace and Anna Karenina. From the 1880s until his death, he devoted himself to more spiritual and philosophical matters, writing several essays on ethics and morals and coming to terms with his own Christian conversion (described in 1879's Confessions). His other works include the novella The Death of Ivan Ilyich (1884) and the novel Resurrection (1899-1900).
