Virgo’s symbol is the virgin, and their strengths are said to be loyalty and kindness, while they’re practical and hardworking.

Virgo’s are also said to be attractive, smart and sophisticated.

They hate to be let down, and are great at forward planning with a good level of control.

But while they may seem shy at first, they have a rich inner life and make great friends who will be there for life.

Their element is Earth and ruling planet is Mercury.

As this is their planet, it means they possess good writing and speaking skills.

Their drawbacks are rudeness and the desire to take centre stage.

They also don’t like asking for help, which can sometimes hinder them.

And they can get obsessed over the details, being overly critical and fixated on small issues which matter a great deal to them.

Who are Virgos most compatible with?

Cancer – people born between June 21 – July 22, value Virgo’s loyalty and when these two star signs get together there is great potential for long lasting love.

Pisces –  those born between February 19 and March 20 are also a good match for a Virgo. Both signs are opposite each other in the zodiac, so can make up for qualities the other lacks.

Virgos crave intimacy and for them a relationship is about showering their partner with love and affection.

Their intimate and sexual persona is closely linked to the symbolism of the virgin.

Who are Virgos least compatible with?

Gemini is considered the least compatible sign for Virgos, due to their flirtatious nature.

This is because the story of Virgo’s love life can be one of vulnerability and feelings of unworthiness.

Virgo’s will rarely have casual sex with many partners, preferring a stable relationship where they can feel loved and safe.

Saggittarius – these two star signs are not generally viewed as a strong match due to their different lifestyles.

Virgos are much more introverted and thrive on routine, while a Saggittarius lives for risk and adventure.


Which celebrities are Virgos?

  • Prince Harry
  • Blake Lively

  • Beyoncé
  • Jennifer Hudson
  • Nick Jonas
  • Adam Sandler
