Strong, sensitive perfectionists, Virgos hold themselves - and the others around them - to the highest of standards. Craving absolute excellence in all things, however, does have its downsides. Sometimes it can be a little difficult for you to just let go, so you need to learn to breathe, take stock and pick your battles, for they can't all be won.
Perfection in personality is met in equal measure by how you tend to dress - you always look put together and enviably fresh. Your attention to detail works well for you in this area.
Since you aim to master everything that you try, it sometimes takes a bit longer for you to put yourself out there. You can be extra hard on yourself, Virgo. Sometimes you criticise friends, family and colleagues simply because you hold yourself to the highest of standards. Being Ms. Perfect can come at a price, and your lesson in life is to let go and mess up once in a while. You won’t fall apart if you don’t account for every single detail.
You can be a bit of a workaholic, staying up all night to meet a deadline or getting up while it’s still dark out to prepare for an important meeting.
You tend to feel your stress in your digestive system first, so make sure you have lots of outlets when things get complicated. Meditation, yoga, CBD oil, and deep breathing exercises are excellent tools. If you work yourself to the bone, you can end up with a stomachache or worse – an eventual ulcer. Eat healthy, nourishing foods, especially when you’re in the middle of a stressful project. The worst thing you can do is forget to eat, so set calendar reminders if you must. Many Virgos experiment with veganism and vegetarianism: you’re a dedicated animal lover.
You’re better known for your smarts than your sassy side, but you can rock both. Your intelligence is totally off the charts, and you relish an intellectual challenge. Crossword puzzles, word games and charged debates with other smarty-pants friends get you going.
You can be kind of critical when surrounded by people who aren’t as bright as you; try to keep this snobbish side under wraps, lest you’ll offend people without intending to.
Virgo Compatibility - Love and Sex:
You came here to serve, and sometimes you take this trait to the extreme, especially in your relationships. This tendency toward giving and giving can end up hurting you, especially when you realise that your partners have gotten used to getting everything they want and more.
Now, this can be fun when you’re role-playing and experimenting with BDSM, but when you take it into IRL relating, it’s not so healthy. Instead of making yourself into a martyr for your partner, find some kind of volunteer work (possibly with animals, see above).
You need to find a healthy outlet in order to be of service. At the same time, you have a profound need to be alone once in a while. Take regular breaks in your own private space to recharge.
A secret most people wouldn’t expect from you: you’re totally wild in bed, even if you seem wound up and closed off in public.
Virgo Beauty and Style:
Because your whole system is so sensitive, including your complexion, go for wholesome, organic, natural products when it comes to skin care and cosmetics.
You don’t want to layer on heavy makeup – aside from reactions and allergies, it’s just not your style. Light serum-infused tints with SPF are a better option than a full face of foundation. Your gorgeous inner glow will show on the outside, especially if you give yourself daily stress-breaks, eat your organic veggies, drink lots of water, and practice the art of being nice to yourself.
You have classic style, and always look totally put together because you planned your wardrobe that way. Hint: even if you’re wearing a simple, conservative cardigan or button down shirt, remind yourself of your wild side by wearing super sexy lingerie underneath – only you have to know what’s going on in the shadows.
