Things To Know About Virgo

Updated on December 14, 2011


If you're one that was born between the dates of August 23- September 22 then you're considered a Virgo. Virgos, just like the other zodiac signs, have many different traits. There's actually quite a bit of things to learn about the zodiac and that includes the sign Virgo. There's not just traits to learn about the sign but there's a lucky number for those who are Virgos, a day, trees even that are connected to them.


Virgos are very independent people. They do however have a narrow mind at times that can cause their creativity to suffer and may lead to regular routine lives. They may sometimes dwell on the past and this may begin to complicate things and limit them.

They are loyal, truthful, and determined, therefore people look up to them. They make good friends however some people may think they are rude or don't like them and this is because Virgos tend to live with in their minds and not in their emotions nor feelings. Virgos hide their feelings, often times denying how they may truly feel so it takes a true great reader of emotions to know how a Virgo may be feeling, or perhaps just a great friend. They may seem controlling or they may seem to analyze your life but this is only because they are trying to help so be patient with them.

In the career field Virgos make great investigators and researchers because they have great memory. Not only that but they are intelligent as well. Virgos can also make great police men/ women or interrogators because they are skilled at finding out what people's motives are. They basically keep the world in order, going for any position that requires a rational thinker.

A Virgo person has a powerful mind indeed. If they believe life to be negative than truth be told their life will truly seem negative to them. However if they believe life to be positive then life will really seem positive to them. Things are what the believe them to be. They are the kind of person that need to become more in touch with their feelings.

Everyone sees a Virgo person as a person who has everything organized and controlled. As if the person is calm. But inside a Virgo is actually all over. They are nervous, intense, trying to figure things out. They are trying to improve, trying to perfect.

A Virgo woman may seem detached outside and not really all that emotional but inside there is a woman that is strong, a woman that is passionate and very capable of devoting herself to love. This is the type of woman that will try to play hard to get, in fear that she'll get her feelings hurt. If you are someone trying to impress a Virgo woman be patient with her. You'll have to work very hard. However once she has fallen in love she is in it for a long time.

A Virgo man, much like a woman, has a cool outside but very sensitive inside. He has a great deal of respect for women and treats them like equals. Like a Virgo woman he takes patience and he is one guy that will not get close to you. He needs the type of woman who is classy but not impulsive. He leads a predictable kind of life, perfect for the down to earth, conservative woman. He won't be romantic but he sure will be loyal.


The element for this zodiac sign is Earth. Herbs and plants that connect to Virgos are Cornflower, Lily, Narcissus, Rosemary, Snowdrop, and Silver Root. The tree that corresponds with Virgos is called the Elder tree.

The following oils are connected to this zodiac sign Asters, Caraway, Corn Flower, Lavender and Snowdrops. The incense for them is Narcissus.

Deities that correspond with this sign are Isis, Ceres, Heru and Adonis. The age group that this sign governs over includes 7-14 years old.

It's said that when the moon is in the sign of Virgo rituals that involve employment are the best to do. You may also do rituals that have to do with health issues that have to do with the nervous system and the intestines.


Virgos may be fussy, seem cold, skeptical and even interfering but they are also helpful, reliable, precise, and observant. Keep in mind they really aren't as cold as they may first put off. Deep down they have emotions like any other person. Just give it some time and get to know them.

      writer20, then your sister has some bad qualities and good qualities to her, just like anybody else. Each zodiac sign does. I'm one who believes the zodiac, and I feel that Virgos are just misunderstood people. When you give them a chance you'll see them for the true people they are.

      sparkster, lol I get what you're saying. Thanks for reading.
