Personality Traits of Virgo: Our birthday greetings to all of you born under the sign of Virgo one of the most sensible, practical and modest signs of the Zodiac, but also one with the most critical mind! Being an Earth sign and “ruled” by Mercury, Virgo is an industrious sign, which likes to do everything in a methodical manner.
They do not really care about other people’s opinion and do not know how to take compliments well! They are somewhat shy and become critical and sarcastic if someone praises them too much (exactly opposite to a Leo!). They are often talented in writing (Goethe and Tolstoy), arts (realistic or nature drawing and miniatures with emphasis on detail and accuracy rather than imagination), dancing, music (playing exact notes as opposed to composing), and languages (with emphasis on grammar and pronunciation).
They are perfectionists in everything they do but can get caught up in nit-picking details. They are efficient and normally do not have to repeat anything because they do it right the first time. Virgos are probably the most unselfish friends to have and are true friends in need. However, do not expect them to soothe you with stories. If you are going through a breakup, they will give you all the reasons why you should not have been involved in the first place!
Virgos are often involved in teaching, accounts, health-oriented profession and the service industry. Saving others is the best way for them to deal with their tendency to indulge in self-pity and the “poor me” attitude because they can change it into compassion. Virgos are excellent troubleshooters because of their logical, analytical, organized and practical approach. Virgos make excellent researchers and are often drawn to health-oriented professions. Those with Venus in Virgo can be somewhat shy in love. They enjoy natural skin care products and are good in modeling. Venus in Virgo is compatible with Venus in Taurus, Cancer, and Scorpio.
