Virgo Traits and Star Sign Personality

Do you know the traits of a Virgo? As the zodiac’s sixth sign, Virgo personality traits include perfectionism, cleanliness and highly analytical behavior. Understanding Virgo traits can help you get along with this sign in love, work and life.

What are Virgo traits?

Have you ever met someone who was a perfectionist, a people-pleaser and even a little bit nit-picky and judgmental? Chances are, this person was a Virgo, the sign born between August 23-September 22. Learning the Virgo star sign personality and Virgo traits can help you coexist in harmony with this zodiac sign, which can be health-conscious and practical, but also uptight and overly-critical.

Chief among the traits of a Virgo is their strong need for perfectionism. A Virgo is very opinionated and they despise laziness. They are highly productive and love analyzing a situation, but can often get stuck in analysis-paralysis as they nit-pick at all the details. Ruled by communication planet Mercury, a Virgo is an expert conversationalist. Virgo is the sign of the Virgin or Maiden, which is symbolic for a Virgo’s innocence or purity. As the zodiac’s sixth sign, Virgo loves anything streamlined and systematized.

What kind of person is Virgo?

Positive Virgo astrology traits include being dedicated, resourceful, helpful, hardworking and witty. They’re not afraid to speak their minds and voice their opinions! A Virgo can become anxious when they criticize themselves and others to the point of obsession. This is a sign that could benefit from the old adage, “Nobody’s perfect.”

Difficult traits of the Virgo sign include being preachy, self-destructive, overwhelmed, self-pitying and uptight. Virgo is a grounded earth sign and a dynamic mutable sign. They tend to talk a big game about their people-pleasing, and many Virgos secretly wish to be a hero. At times, Virgo can be narcissistic, believing that they are always in the right. They can also be extremely generous, however, always making themselves available to their loved ones when they’re in need.

While some of these traits of the Virgo sign can make them seem overbearing, their humor and warmth is also endearing, and their charm is irresistible.
