Virgo the Virgin is the sixth sign of the zodiac and those born under this sign are well known for their analytical minds; they are quick to note and remember facts. Their natural temperament is have everything in order, they like everything in its place and that’s at home and work. They are fastidious, clean, tidy and sometimes obsessive. They need to be aware of this obsessive part of their nature as it can take over their daily patterns and block other things out and in some Virgo’s bring about bouts of depression. They tend to worry about the finer detail in situations especially if they are in charge of organisation, so they need to step back and force themselves to be content with the job they have done, as it is usually done extremely well!
They are quick minded but often go about things the hard way again taxing them unnecessarily. Virgo the virgin loves new information and are often avid readers with an amazing memory and recall. Where-as some people find mental tasks difficult the Virgo person sees it as a challenge and usually breezes thru it! They tend to analyse things way to much but are quick to sort thru and link ideas; but they must be aware of not taking credit for another’s idea. Virgo’s like to make a good impression and usually do but will also go out of their way to do so. In most cases the Virgo mind is exact, witty and clever but can be critical and need to use tact. They are great with conversation and love to talk. They can be optimists, problem solvers, energetic, conservative, and kind but also frustrating due to their analytical and critical nature. They make great friends always willing to lend a hand; they love the outdoors and most hobbies that go with being outdoors.
