Modest, Meticulous, Reliable, Practical
Virgo loves order. Planning, analyzing, assessing and organizing are woven into everything they do. They plan and work toward all goals, even personal ones. For example, if a Virgo wants a vacation, they will plan how funds will be earned and saved for it. They plan the trip in detail, they plan how much extra time will be spent working to allow for the extra time off, they plan exactly how to make the best use of their luggage space, and so on. It is not stressful for them to plan each detail, it’s stressful not to. While they can sometimes enjoy spontaneity, an underlying structure is still essential for true enjoyment.
System and order in all things, even family. They carefully plan for their family’s well-being. They will not betray their highly developed sense of responsibility or duty, even if it causes them pain or suffering. Virgos make great family members and contribute greatly to the group effort, even if sometimes to a fault.
Virgo tends to take things quite literally, so if they are promised something, they expect it to happen. Their sense of humor can be dampened by their literalism but they really enjoy wordplay and wit. Virgos are famous for making silent demands, expecting their needs will be met without verbalizing them.
While Virgo can be secretive and difficult to get to know, once you’ve won them over you’ll find you’ve gained a valuable treasure in them. They are loyal and true friends who will stick with you through thick and thin.
