Virgo’s Traits and Personality

Known for their organization skills, a Virgo will not sit comfortably in a disorganized space. They crave order and their perfectionist nature drives them to arrange everything in ways that make sense to them.

This might seem like a positive trait, and it is. After all, most people appreciate living in a properly organized space. However, despite this seemingly awesome trait, Viros do have both positive and negative traits.

Positive Traits

They are Hardworking

A Virgo is possibly the hardest worker in the room. They understand the value of hard work and are not afraid to toss themselves in the middle of any project. Any pending project is enough to give a Virgo some sleepless nights. This is possibly fuelled by their perfectionism. Nothing is done until a Virgo can look at it and decide it is done the right way.

They are highly Organized

A Virgo thrives in an organized world. Therefore, they will organize anything and everything into perfect order.  A Virgo’s closet is likely organized in colour codes, sizes and purpose. This makes them a great companion for anyone who would wish to have some order in their lives. It also makes them ideal choices for jobs that require some order.

They are Critical Thinkers

A Virgo will not jump into any conclusions. They will utilize all possible elements of thinking before making any decisions, especially big decisions. Their critical thinking ability makes it hard for them to make careless mistakes that other signs would make.

They are Helpful & Reliable

A Virgo will never pass up a chance to help other people. This roots from the fact that they love being relied upon. They are not afraid to let their friends, family and co-workers know that they can depend on them for help. If you are ever in trouble, chances are that a Virgo will come through for you faster than any other sign on the zodiac.

They are Patient

Nothing good comes without some level of patience. This is something Virgos fully understand and have no problem living by. This patience extends to good things and people. A Virgo will give people many chances to do the right thing. Their ability to wait for the good in people to emerge makes them a famous sign on the Zodiac.

This does not mean that they are infinitely patient. There is a limit to how long they can wait. However, this time is considerably longer than any other time offered by other signs.


You cannot be helpful and patient and not be kind at the same time. They are the kindest of the Zodiac signs as their hearts are full of love. A Virgo will show you unconditional love regardless of your position in their life.


Virgos are humble people. Their natural humble nature makes them down to earth people who will have no problem putting others before themselves.

Virgo Negative Traits

They can be Critical

Virgos are critical to both themselves and others. Their perfectionist trait makes them expect the best from others and themselves. Therefore, anyone who does not meet these standards is usually criticized, including themselves.

They are Stubborn

Virgos do not like changing their minds. Remember, they take their time before making a decision. This makes it easy for hem to stand by their decisions. It also makes it easy for them to believe that they know best. It will take a lot of time and strength to change a Virgo’s mind.

They are Prone to Overthinking

This is likely the negative effect of their critical thinking trait. While critical thinking is a good thing, it makes them overthink every situation, even those that require fast action.


Give that Virgos rarely change their minds, are over thinkers and stubborn, it is only natural to expect that they are picky about the things and people in their lives. They are also picky about trying new things in their lives.

Virgo Compatibility

Virgos are a mixture of spicy, stubborn helpful and hardworking people. This combination makes this earth sign a unique one. It is interesting to see who their most compatible signs are.

Most compatible signs

Virgo and Cancer

Both signs are hardworking and have conservative spending habits. They both prefer to stay indoors as opposed to going out.

Sexually, while Virgos are not likely to try new things fast, they like passionate sex which Cancers have a lot to offer.

Virgo and Scorpio

On face value, these are two signs that should not be together. However, a deeper look into their traits reveals that their compatibility is high. For example, Virgos do not like change and are pretty set in their ways. On the other hand, Scorpios are adventurous. The saving grace for Scorpios is that they are not really bothered when people are not as aggressive as they are. Therefore, they won’t mind that a Virgo is reluctant to try new things.

Sexually, Scorpios are sexual beings who love being in control.  They are likely to inspire their Virgo partners to try new things in their sex life and eventually learn to expect more from sex.

Virgo and Taurus

A Virgo and Taurus relationship is hinged on many commonalities. A Taurus will enjoy a Virgo’s organization skills and sense of humour while a Virgo will appreciate that their Taurus partner values hard work as much as they do. They are both highly dependable partners who like committed relationships and will always have each other’s backs.

Sexually, Virgos are less trusting but passionate lovers. Tauruses are also passionate lovers. Once they get past the distrust they will both enjoy the most passionate sex. Also, Taurus will enjoy a Virgos organized nature and attention to details, especially in the bedroom.

Virgo and Capricorn

A Virgo and Capricorn share many positive traits. They can both care for each other without upsetting set boundaries. They value hard work and will stay at home if they have nothing important to do. Sexually, both a Virgo and Capricorn will think hard about the people they sleep with.

Least Compatible

Virgo and While Virgos seem to get along with everyone, their traits are not entirely suited for all signs. A Virgo and Gemini might be compatible in some things but they will eventually fall out. The Gemini sign is more outgoing that Virgo and when the two fail to meet halfway the relationship will soon come to an end.

Virgos and Sagittarius don’t seem to work very well either. The Sagittarius is more optimistic than their Virgo partner. A Virgo partner, who is likely to be a pessimist, will see the Sagittarian as naive due to heir positivity.

Also, Sagittarians are less likely to let anything tie them down. Virgos like to stay indoors and will not share in ost of their partner’s experiences. These are differences that should be met with a lot of understanding. Failure tot his, they end up ruining the relationship.
