Virgo & Love
You’re not the type who dates a whole lot or sees dating as a game to be played. You usually only date someone once you’ve already gotten to know them, and you take your time during that process. It takes a very long time for you to open up emotionally, and you have to make sure that you can trust the person first.
At times, you can seem shy, reserved, even innocent, even though you may actually be far from that underneath (Virgo does rule the sexual extremes, after all). Once you commit to someone, you’re incredibly loyal and supportive.
Secretly, you can be quite affectionate. You need someone who is stable so you don’t have to worry, can soothe your nerves when you get carried away, and who can open you up so you don’t remain in your closed world.
The signs that you’re most compatible with tend to be the ones that are in the same element as yours, which are Taurus and Capricorn. Both of these signs share your practicality. Taurus will show you how to relax, while Capricorn will make you feel secure. Taurus brings some indulgence into your life, and Capricorn brings some ambition. You feel comfortable with either of these signs, and it doesn’t take much effort.
The zodiac sign that opposes yours tends to be the one you have the most sparks with, and for you, that’s Pisces. They’re emotional nature is puzzling to you, their sensitivity is hard to understand, and their love of fantasy is polar opposite to you, but there’s a connection anyway, and you can teach them to be more grounded in reality, while they can teach you to use your imagination more.

Virgo & Money & Career
When it comes to money, you’re a saver, not a spender. Being as practical as you are, you don’t understand splurging on items that you don’t need, and would much rather put that money away for a rainy day.
Being so risk-averse, you usually don’t go for high-risk investments though, and may find stocks to be too dicey, so you tend to prefer options that are more stable and have been around for a long time. Some of you can be downright cheap, but it’s usually only with yourself.
When it comes to gifts, you’ll spend a little, though it’s usually on something practical that you know they need. You tend to make a budget and stick to it like a hawk, making sure you know where every penny is coming from and going to. You don’t have to worry about spending money that you shouldn’t.
As for your profession, since you’re good with data and tend to be good with numbers, you can work as a mathematician, statistician, economist, or accountant. You usually don’t make a good boss because you don’t like to be in charge, and do best when you’re given work to do and can go off and do it on your own.
You don’t like to mingle with coworkers, gossiping, seeing it as a waste of time that could be better spent getting more work done. Being so good with editing, you’d make a great editor. Some Virgo professions are: critic, librarian, psychologist, secretary, analyst, psychologist.

Virgo & Health
Virgo rules your bowels and intestines, so you can be prone to constipation and diarrhea, especially when you’re stressed out. Your whole digestive system can get thrown out of whack when you’re stressed. For you more than any other sign, stress manifests physically. It’s of the utmost importance that you don’t ignore your stress and find ways to cope. You’ll have all sorts of health problems if you don’t.
Virgo, you are the sixth sign in the Zodiac, and are the most practical of them all. You don’t look at the world in a whimsical, light-hearted way. You take an analytical approach to life, you collect the data necessary for each situation, and you make decisions accordingly. This allows you to be an excellent worker, and you can get more done in a shorter period of time than most, and you do the job well.
Being a perfectionist, you edit your work carefully, making sure there isn’t one tiny piece there that shouldn’t be. You hold yourself and others to a high standard, and while it’s good to strive to be better, it can go to far. No one is perfect, no matter how much they try, including you, so don’t be so hard on yourself or others about it. Accept your flaws and work with them.
When it comes to work, you have no trouble working hard, putting in the hours, and doing many tasks quickly, but you’re better with the little things, the small details, and the minor tasks than with the bigger picture. By constantly collecting so much data, it becomes nearly impossible for you to put them all together cohesively. Don’t get so lost in the data that you can’t see the entire picture.
You’re rooted in the Earth, and you see things how they are, though sometimes, it can lead you to be pessimistic. Life is rough, and there’s no getting around that, but it doesn’t always have to be. With how hard you work, you can turn things around better than you think.
By looking at life the way that you do, it leads to bouts of anxiety because it’s hard for you to be positive, and you can overwhelm yourself with all of the information you take in, work you take on, and perfectionist tendencies. You need to find constructive outlets for your feelings and not just ignore them all of the time. You view feelings as messy and something to be avoided at all costs, but it doesn’t do you any good. Embrace your emotional self, and you’ll be the whole person that you should be.

Natal Planets & House Cusps in Virgo:
Natal Moon in Virgo
A master of the details, that’s Virgo Moons. You like having things to do and feeling like you’re needed, and don’t mind doing the kinds of things most of us find boring if people show you proper appreciation for it. Depending on other factors, you might be more than happy just living a normal life, which other people may not understand (since most of us are pretty unrealistic!). You like structure and organization, and you might be one of those people who cleans when they’re stressed out. Others may think you’re too predictable, but you’re likely okay with that (unless you’re an Aquarius!), and you’re pretty dependable. When you’re unhappy or stressed, you’re probably a nag and can whine with the best of them. You can be overly analytical and have problems with your nerves. You need to learn how to relax and let yourself just be. You can be too hard on yourself sometimes, and if not handled well, an excessive perfectionist. Hey, we all have flaws, it’s okay! If you’ve got a good sense of humor, then you’re probably self-deprecating (in a good-natured way). In relationships, you’re usually not one for grand gestures, but do a lot of little, everyday things. You like being of service to people and feel you have a purpose.
Natal Mercury in Virgo
With your natal Mercury in Virgo, you’re not extremely expressive with your communication style, but you have a lot of knowledge that you can share, and you’ll contribute all of the facts that you know. Details are your thing, and you see and know them all. Stepping back and seeing the bigger picture is where you can have trouble. You’re extremely organized with your thoughts and ideas, and require a certain amount of structure and order to be mentally calm. Daily tasks are always finished quickly with you because you need them out of the way before you can wrap your brain around anything else. You have a hard time letting other people do things because you believe that you’re the only one who can do them right, which makes you take on too much.
Natal Venus in Virgo
With your natal Venus in Virgo, you take a practical approach to love. You may not be the most romantic of people, but you’re incredibly dedicated, and you show how much you care by doing lots of little things for your partner and paying attention to all of the little details of their personality and life. At times, you can point out what they’re doing wrong too much, but in your mind, you’re just trying to help them be the best they can be. You don’t want someone who is too clingy or dishonest. You’re also not fans of people who seem too flashy and want to be the center of attention. You don’t need to be in a relationship, and can be a bit insecure in love, so this keeps you from being in many of them, and you take your time getting to know someone first.
Natal Mars in Virgo
With your natal Mars in Virgo, you’re a busy person who takes a practical approach to all of your work. You take on many projects all at once, and while it can be too much for most people to juggle, you find a way to do it. There are times when you stretch yourself too thin though, and need to learn your limits and give yourself a break sometimes. You generally avoid conflict and try to keep the peace, but you are sensitive to what people say and when you get mad, you can pick them apart. You require a lot of structure and order, likely having a set daily routine, as a way of making sure you don’t have to deal with the little stuff so you have less stress. You stress easily, and it leads to nervousness and fidgety energy. When you feel you’re being productive, that lessens.
Natal Jupiter in Virgo
With your natal Jupiter in Virgo, you need to maintain some structure and order to attract success. The details can be the key to your accomplishments if you don’t let yourself get lost in them. You have many skills of value that help you along the way, are a hard-worker, and your problem-solving skills can get you out of many situations.
Natal Saturn in Virgo
With your natal Saturn in Virgo, you’re extremely responsible, perhaps too much so at times. You feel like you have to be productive or you’re useless. You’re an excellent worker but may not be good at anything else if you don’t work on being well-rounded. You don’t take risks, are concerned with small tasks, and are too hard on yourself.
Natal Uranus in Virgo
With your natal Uranus in Virgo, you can be inventive when it comes to dealing with work, becoming more efficient, health issues, and service. You can be attracted to science, or be concerned about the environment. You have a great mind, and you can use this to succeed.
Natal Neptune in Virgo
With your natal Neptune in Virgo, you want to help other people through making them healthier. You take alternative approaches to medicine and see the linkage between mind and body and how damaging stress can be. You try to do the right thing no matter what, and expect others to do the same.
Natal Pluto in Virgo
With your natal Pluto in Virgo, you strive to make everything better, if you can. You don’t care for attention too much, and just want to work and serve others. You can do what it takes to help other people, even at your own expense.
1st House in Virgo (Virgo Rising)
You come across as someone who is practical, logical, and analytical. You have a keen eye for the details, and none will escape you. You can see the details in every situation, though the big picture can be hard for you to grasp. You’re the one who takes detailed notes and lists and tries to stay organized. People look to you to keep everything in order and bring some structure and routine. You may seem a little nervous publicly, unsure of yourself, and need to stay busy. You can work yourself ragged, and will do the work that no one else wants to do, though you may prefer working on your own.
2nd House in Virgo
You know exactly what you want to do with your money, and keep track of every penny. You try to be practical with your finances, always having a sound plan, but you can deviate from it on a whim at times and get yourself in trouble. When your finances aren’t in good shape, you tend to be in bad shape physically, and the financial worry leads to physical illness. You can make money through something Virgo-related, like using the details, something with your mind, as an organizer, bringing structure or creating routines, with health, or with animals.
3rd House in Virgo
Communicating may have been especially difficult for you when you were young, not because of any problem with your mind, but because of insecurity and doubt about your thoughts and opinions. You felt like what you had to say just didn’t matter as much as what other people said. You have a strong mind centered around logic and reason, and you need to learn to feed your mind. You’re excellent with the details, practical, and able to dedicate yourself to any mental work required of you. You can be critical of other people’s opinions, or of your siblings or neighbors.
4th House in Virgo
You maintain structure and order in your home, may be a neat freak, and are always organized. Without structure and order, you don’t feel comfortable in your home. You can be overly critical of your home and family, and if they don’t live up to your standards of perfectionism, you can be too hard on them. You’re more easygoing in your younger years, and manifest the earthy and intellectual aspects of Virgo as you get older.
5th House in Virgo
You don’t do things on a whim, and prefer quiet hobbies and activities. You do a lot of planning before you let yourself have any fun, and prefer hobbies that use up some of your mental energy. In love, you’re picky, and don’t want to settle for anything less than your perfect mate. You take a logical, analytical approach to dating. You can be too critical of your children, and need to be more understanding.
6th House in Virgo
You’re focused on the details in your work, and can get so lost in them that you never actually finish the job. You prefer work that’s practical and uses your mind. Your health is of great concern to you, and you pay close attention to what you eat and drink, and how much you exercise. When stressed, it manifests physically, and you can have stomach issues. You can work with animals or do something in health care with Virgo here.
7th House in Virgo
You want a partner who is practical, and will help you to get in touch with reality. They need to be logical, rational people, and stimulate your mind to get you thinking. In a relationship, they need to bring what you lack, and vice versa, and they need to be understanding of the way you live, because it’s not like everyone else. You can drift off into your own world, and they need to be willing to find you and bring you back.
8th House in Virgo
You’re cautious when it comes to joint finances and investing, and won’t do anything impulsive or unconventional without checking it out first and understanding the details. When it comes to transforming, you can use your mind to help you, be inspired to by your health, and you can transform in a structured, ordered way.
9th House in Virgo
You’re a logical person when it comes to your beliefs, and you like to study various beliefs and cultures. Whatever you do believe, you know a lot about, and you’ve studied it thoroughly.
10th House in Virgo
You need plenty of mental stimulation in your career, or you get bored quickly. You do best in work that’s in service of others, that involves the usage of your mind, and where you can exchange ideas freely. You prefer conventional jobs in conventional places. You can choose a career that’s Virgo-related, involving the details, something with your mind, as an organizer, bringing structure or creating routines, with health, or with animals.
11th House in Virgo
You don’t make too many close friends, but are loyal to the ones you have and willing to help them with whatever they need. You tend to be practical with your dreams, and try to figure out how you can realistically make things happen.
12th House in Virgo
You can be more judgmental of other people than you seem, and think long and hard before you speak out. When comfortable, you’re practical, reserved, and detail-oriented. If you keep your nerves to yourself, it impacts your health.
