Virgo tend to be shy and somewhat nervous, and they may be undemonstrative or repressed. But they are practical and logical, and they're skilled at seeing all sides of a situation. Virgo brings their skills and talents together for the good of others. Virgo is the Sign of Service. Despite their inherent modesty, people born under Virgo are industrious and efficient when working for a good cause. They are neat and well organized.

Virgo prefers to explore subjects more deeply. They are very good at understanding what people are saying beneath the surface words of their communication. Detailed and precise, people born under Virgo tend too be neat and exacting, but sometimes petty and overly fussy. At the other end of the scale, some Virgos can be sloppy. Generally, though, they are dedicated to meticulous cleanliness and can be compulsively tidy. Many Virgos have an excellent head for business, relying on logic rater than ego or emotion to make their deals. They are reliable, practical, and diligent, but they can sometimes seem picky or over-critical to people who aren't as discriminating as they are. Because of their responsibility and attention to detail, people born under Virgo tend to be perfectionists. They may worry too much about small details, and they can seem demanding and critical. Their analytical nature and attention to duty can seem like nitpicking or pettiness if the people around them don't understand Virgo's desire for perfection.

The great strength of the Virgo-born is in their attention to detail and their desire to be of service. They pick up on the little things that most other people miss.

Their commitment to helping others makes them one of the most giving characters of the Zodiac.
