Virgo's strengths include being loyal and hardworking. Weaknesses include preoccupation and criticism of self and others.
Virgos are considered the most careful signs of the Zodiac. Virgos do not go through life without as many things in their life being as planned as possible. This sign is often misunderstood due to their inability to accept their feelings as valid. Since Virgo is under the planet Mercury, they may have a well-developed sense of speech and writing.
In love, Virgo will rarely give directed declarations of love, but will show their partner love through intimacy. Virgo prefers stable relationships to casual flings.
Virgo is considered the sexiest of all the signs, as it is represented by a woman. The Virgo tattoo can make you stand out from the crowd. The sign is ruled by the planet Mercury and the earth element. Virginians can make mountains out of molehills, both in a positive and negative context. Although they are perfectionists, Virgos are known to be fussy, hypercritical, harsh and conservative, which can be very irritating to other signs. They can keep personal feelings under tight control. When Virgos are self-confident, they are the most structured and creative of all the other signs.
Virgo natives do not need advice about order and healthy habits. They are very strict with their daily routines. With a Virgo in your life, you have someone who understands and cares about you. Virginians like quality and reputable people. A Virgo does not usually pay attention to nonsense that seems to serve no purpose. His hard work and can-do attitude will take him a long way. People born under this sign are quick-witted and observant, they can't stand being taken care of, but prefer to take care of others. These people can become good critics, being quick to see weaknesses. As they are very kind, devoted and loyal, they share a very warm relationship with their romantic or work partners.

Although everyone is different, there are some key traits you should be aware of when it comes to Virgos. Knowing these Virgo characteristics will help you if you are, or relate to the Virgos in your life.
Virgo is an earth sign, which shows in their practical and logical tendencies. Some of their best qualities are due to the fact that they are very thoughtful and well-rounded people.
Virgo knows that hard work pays off. They are not afraid to throw themselves into a project, whatever the cost, and may even spend some sleepless nights.
Virgo throws themselves into their creativity as much as their other passions. Their creativity is always fluid and they use mediums such as art, dance and writing as an outlet.
You will be hard pressed to find someone more responsible and reliable than a Virgo. When left in charge, Virgos take their responsibilities seriously, and always show up when they are needed.
While no one is infinitely patient, Virgo is more patient than others. They are always willing to see the best in people, and are willing to give people time when they need it to shape their act.
Virgo is also humble and caring. Along with their desire to see the best in people, they are unfailingly kind and always willing to help others.
Of course, Virgos are not all perfect, and like most signs, some of their greatest strengths can also be points of weakness.
Virgos are hard workers and excellent at what they do, but these high standards can also cause them to be overly critical and judgmental of others.
Virgo can be especially set in their ways. Because they are so dedicated, they often think they know best, and are reluctant to change their minds or change their ways.
✗Think too much
As critical thinkers, Virgo can also be chronic over-thinkers. Their minds are so busy all the time, constantly thinking about things they need to do or how they can get ahead on their next project. This means they also think too much about emotions and relationships.
✗Searching for too many options
Again, Virgo is quite set in their ways and are not easily convinced to try something new. They also run the risk of being critical of others' choices.
✗ Think too much
Overthinking and worrying are classic Virgo traits. They are bothered by many little things, and are often told by friends that they need to relax.

Virgo friendship and family relationships
As a naturally shy and reserved sign, Virgos find it hard to open up and make new friends. However, once they do they are amazing friends who should always be the first call for anyone in need, or just if you need a good chat about life. Virgo loves to connect with others, and this applies to their friendships and family members as well.
Virgo would do best with a Scorpio best friend who understands their quiet intensity and can bring out their emotional side.

Professional relationships with Virgo
It's no surprise that Virgo is a great employee. Their critical thinking and analytical skills mean they are always looking for the next big thing and how to improve their work.
Virgo needs to be careful of their critical tendencies at work, and make sure they have their filters on so they don't say things they can't take back and jeopardise opportunities.
Here you can read more about it: What Virgo is like at work
#1: One of the most important things for a Virgo to remember is to relax. Take a step back from work and remember to enjoy the little things. Try to schedule break times well in advance, and stick to it.
#2: Surround yourself with people who can help you access your emotions, but who understand your intellectuality. It is best to have friends who are different from each other, so that you feel balanced and respected.
#3: Try to remember that not everyone takes criticism well, and that you are not always right. What works for you may not work for someone else. Practice pacing yourself and thinking before you speak to make sure you don't hurt feelings by accident.
#4: Channel that famous work ethic into projects that make you happy. You'll work hard at everything you do, but you don't always have to work hard at work. You can help friends and family, volunteer and work on your art.
#5: Use that natural creativity (one of Virgo's most common traits!) to tap into your emotions. Practicality can seem cold, so practice connecting with your emotional side with the added benefit of working on the things that matter to you. Bonus points if you do these activities with friends or a romantic interest.
#1: Remember that Virgo is not naturally emotionally open, but this does not mean that he does not have feelings. Virgo needs a lot of space, but he also needs to be convinced that he is loved and cared for.
#2: Respect that Virgo is an over-thinker, and at times will create their own feelings of anxiety. This can sometimes translate into insecurities about their relationships. Be patient and let him work through the feelings.
#3: Virgo loves to work hard and throw themselves into new things and projects. Encourage Virgo's interests, and remember that their dedication to whatever is going on in their life is natural to them.
#4: Don't take advantage of Virgos' generosity or patience. Virgos will always be there for you, and are extremely reliable in any situation. However, their tendency to give people a second chance and give them the benefit of the doubt can leave Virgos feeling pressured, and feeling that a relationship is one-sided.
#5: If a Virgo seems sharp-tongued or critical, it's probably not personal. They are perfectionists, and just want everything done to their own standards. Try talking to them to get a sense of their vision, and help them find friendlier ways to express this vision.
Although no sign goes through life without its challenges, Virgo often has itself to blame for its problems. But by learning to relax and respecting all their amazing qualities, they can find success in love and in life. Virgos are dependable and hardworking, and many Virgos have found success through their unwavering work ethic.
