Virgo Zodiac Sign Traits
Spiritual Gifts: Organized, Reliable, Knowledgeable
Always reaching for perfection, your attention to detail and level head make everything you touch a success.
Virgo, you have a shrewd mind and a natural thirst for knowledge. Always interested in learning more about topics you enjoy, you find comfort in analyzing every angle of a situation in order to gather all the facts you can. Virgo zodiac sign is aligned with the earth element, which means you take a grounded, practical approach to life. For this reason, you view situations from a place of logic, as opposed to emotion.
Your tribe benefits greatly from your planning, research, and natural good taste. Events usually unfold quite smoothly when you’ve lent your magic to the mix! The symbol of Virgo is a maiden gathering wheat, which is a perfect way to honor your ability to collect facts, statistics, and wisdom wherever you go. You have a sharp eye for detail and are a true perfectionist at heart.
While you’re an unwavering perfectionist, you’re not necessarily serious all the time. More often than not, you’re making someone laugh without even trying. As funny as you are smart, you have a way of delivering information that cracks people up.
This is such a wonderful mix of spiritual gifts, because it keeps others receptive to the sound advice you offer, which always comes from the heart. The Virgo zodiac sign is aligned with the throat chakra and planet Mercury, which means you’re great with words and are an excellent conversationalist.
Virgo Weaknesses + Opportunities for Growth
You are so level headed and wise that people often seek you out for advice. It’s remarkable how clearly you can see the best way solve a problem or even organize a space. In fact, what you take for granted as simple logic, may be completely missed by others. As a result, you may end up blowing your top when people behave irresponsibly.
It truly is part of your life purpose to share your wisdom. Since you do have such good intentions, it can be painful for you to step back and let someone go down a road you know leads nowhere. So if you catch yourself feeling frustrated when someone doesn’t heed your advice, remember the decision is ultimately in their hands. While you can counsel, your loved ones need to learn lessons in their own time – even if it’s the hard way.
We love you for your friendly, calm, collected presence, but there’s a certain weight that comes with your level of awareness. You have a tendency to worry about getting everything just right, and can be overly harsh with yourself when things don’t turn out the way you planned. When this happens, you can spend a good deal of energy over-analyzing how things played out, which causes stress.
You deserve peace, darling Virgo! So don’t put so much strain on yourself. If you can practice the art of allowing things to simply be as they are, you’ll feel a great deal of relief.
Virgo Sign Compatibility
Best Romantic Matches: Capricorn, Taurus, Gemini, Aquarius, Libra
Your earthy energy means you approach romance just like you do everything else: with a good measure of common sense. For this reason, you’ll get along wonderfully with other earth signs like Taurus and Capricorn. Air signs, who tend to see the world through an intellectual lens, would work well for you, too. So don’t be afraid to give a Gemini, Aquarius, or Libra a try!
On the other hand, you may find water (Cancer, Pisces, Scorpio) and fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius ) a bit too sensitive to suit you. They aren’t quite as thick skinned as your fellow earth signs, and may mistake your logical nature as being overly critical.
While you can certainly tap into your emotions when the situation calls for it, water/fire signs approach everything in life based on how they feel. This may cause a bit of friction, but if you’re both aware of your differences and willing to learn from each other, you’ll do great with any partner you choose – and we know you’ll have done your research!

How To Attract a Virgo
If you’ve set your sights on a Virgo, here are some tips for you! For starters, know they are likely to keep their distance at first. True to their sign, Virgo will need a chance to study you from afar, and observe your behavior before they allow you to get close. So don’t give up too quickly! If Virgo is engaging you in conversation and seems to enjoy your company, you can be sure it’s sincere; they just don’t jump into romance hastily.
Also, if you want to make a good impression, try not to take your Virgo off guard. They are not lovers of surprise. So don’t put them in a position where they’ll need to drop everything to come away with you because that can trigger anxiety. Virgos are most at ease when all their ducks are in a row.
With that said, Virgos love a good plan! A better approach would be to come up with something special together. They enjoy digging into the details and research for a fun retreat. In fact, that goes for any subject – feel free to ask their advice on whatever you’ve got going on in your life. They are excellent listeners and will happily offer you a fresh perspective.
Virgo on Friends + Family
Virgo, you make a dear friend and loyal confidant. No matter how much time goes by, you have the ability to pick up right where you left off with someone you love. You’ve always got fun facts or news to share, which makes you the go-to person at family get togethers. And since you’re so well informed, you can intelligently weigh-in on any subject that comes up in conversation.
You have a knack for being grounded and bubbly at the same time, which is why we love to have you in our lives!
A natural born problem solver, fixing things and making life better for your people is an area where you excel. Everyone knows you’re the one to call when they need help.
It’s very likely that you already know the qualities you seek in a partner, and have taken a stance on whether you want kids (and if so, how many) from a fairly early age. You don’t leave important milestones like these up to chance!
Virgo Career and Life Purpose
Whatever career path you’ve chosen, it’s a safe bet to say you’ve become a subject matter expert in that area. Your sharp, logical brain means you’d make a great analyst, researcher, auditor, or anything having to do with math or science.
While you’d make an excellent leader, you may not be drawn to positions in upper management, because it would take you too far away from the detailed oriented work that you love. This suits others just fine because your problem solving skills and dependability make you an invaluable team member.
You have a mind for mastery, and as long as you’re invested in the cause, you’ll go above and beyond to put in the hours of study and practice required to achieve your goals. As a Virgo, you’re a thinker as well as a doer, which is a powerful combination.
You’re an equally dedicated parent and companion, so if you’ve chosen a domestic life, you’ll surely thrive there too. You know how to create the structured environment for young people to thrive, while fostering their unique talents and spiritual gifts.

Virgo’s Tarot Card
The Virgo zodiac sign aligns with The Hermit card in tarot. This makes perfect sense, as your symbol is the virgin. The Virgo zodiac symbol has nothing to do with sexuality. Instead, it symbolizes your pure intentions, which makes you a perfect match for the energy of this card.
The image in the Angel Tarot by Radleigh Valentine shows our Hermit alone, carrying a heart shaped lantern. Like the hermit, you are perfectly comfortable in your own company, but that lantern shows us that your actions are always guided by your love for others.
Another theme in your life as a Virgo is the quest for knowledge. So your life purpose involves learning and personal growth. Perhaps the most interesting thing about the imagery in this card is what you can’t see: the hermit is actually leading the way for others who follow behind him. So know that as you spiritually mature, you will serve as a beacon for the younger souls in your life.
Archangel Connected to Virgo
The archangel associated to the Virgo zodiac sign is Archangel Metatron. He is a perfect match for you because he’s got the most down-to-earth energy (well, as much as an archangel can have!). Metatron is known to help with technical skills, and usher in a calming presence. So call on him when you feel overwhelmed, or need extra help solving a tricky problem.
Not all Virgos find their way yo becoming spiritually aware. So if you’re open to getting more in-tune with your celestial helpers, you will open doors to levels of happiness that you never knew possible.
Self-Care for Virgo
Healthy Habits for Virgo
- Meditate – You’ve got one busy mind, Virgo! While meditation may seem like a waste of time, try thinking of it as becoming master over your thoughts. When you can control your thoughts, life becomes an absolute joy.
- Have more fun – You know how to have a good time! But sometimes it’s the first thing to fall off your priority list. Give yourself permission to kick back more often because you deserve it.
- Practice surrender – if you’re prone to stress or anxiety, set your intention to go with the flow as much as possible. You may be surprised to see that things can go well, even if you’re not in control of every detail.

- Rose Quartz will help with heart healing, and settle your mind before sleep

Chakra Healing for Virgo
The Virgo zodiac sign is ruled by the throat chakra. All about self-expression, this is your strongest chakra, the one you relate to most. But if you’re ever feeling like you need help keeping your cool for a difficult conversation, give yourself a few sprays of Speak Your Truth chakra spray. It fosters meaningful exchanges.
One of your weaker charkas is likely the solar plexus. You seem so darn cool and collected to the rest of us! But you do tend to worry, which can result in unnecessary stress and anxiety. These emotions gather in the belly, or solar plexus area.
When this chakra is in balance, you feel self assured and confident. On the other hand, when your solar plexus is out of balance, you’ll feel nervous, unsure, and stressed out. Whenever you’re feeling that way, close your eyes and spray a few pumps of Power Pose. It will help you to feel more in control.
