Key Phrase: “I Analyze”
The Virgo Sign
Virgo is an earth sign symbolized by the Virgin. It is the 6th sign of the zodiac, and is ruled by the planet Mercury. Virgos can seem closed off and cold to those around them, as much of their focus is largely intellectual. Those they allow close to them are often the only ones who get to know this earth sign’s more delicate and emotional side. Many tend to be nervous or too hard on themselves, which can make relationships difficult. However, this sign is also known for delighting in service and empathy, and the Virgo doesn’t do this for recognition. In fact, they are likely to hide their charitable works. They also lack the rigidity of other earth signs. While they may know exactly what they want, they are able to change and grow with new information and lack a stubborn streak.
Having a strong personality that can be blunt and direct at best or picky and difficult at worst, Virgos do let you know exactly where you stand in their lives. Sometimes work or career can become more important to the Virgo than their friends or relationships, especially if they are working towards a higher calling. Yet, their loyalty is undeniable and once open, they can be warm, caring, and exceptional gracious.
