The virgo sign is represented, of course, by the virgin—of course, not to be take literally, meaning that being a virgo does not imply virginity. Rather, the sign of the virgin refers to certain personality characteristics that astrologists often find in virgos; some of these traits include being slightly on the shy side and having a sort of wisdom from experience. It is said that those born under the virgo sign are extremely analytical and often sit back slightly from situations in order to see the whole picture and make a final decision that is an informed one.
Virgos tend to be fastidious and detail-oriented; perhaps as a result of this, virgos are generally thought to be extremely successful in life. This is, according to astrologists, not a result of luck blessing the virgo sign, but rather a result of the virgo’s attention to detail and ability to analyze things and events and take them for exactly what they are. It is said that virgos make no illusions for themselves or when considering others. If this is indeed the case, we should count ourselves lucky to have virgo friends around us.
When it comes to money, virgos are generally believed to be good at earning it and resourceful when finding ways to acquire it that don’t involve your standard 9-5 job. Virgos are good at reading between the lines and can, therefore, find a way to meet their goals in all but the worst of circumstances. Although those under the virgo sign are reportedly good with money, they are not known to be good philanthropists. Virgos are said to be selfish, not only in terms of money, but also a bit stingy with their time and with giving themselves to others.
Virgos generally do not associate with ‘just anyone’; virgos are discriminatory in choosing their friends, similar to their keen eye for the truth and for money. When a virgo chooses you as his or her friend, you should count yourself to be one of the lucky few; virgos do not believe in a wide array of an extended network of friends. Rather, they stick to a small network of a few very close friends. They are said to be loyal to these select few.
Though those born under the virgo sign are generally of very good health, virgos are frequently hypochondriacs constantly visiting the doctor. This is no doubt due to their habit of over-analyzing every little thing. For a virgo, a cough is not a symptom of a common cold, but more likely a warning sign of lung cancer. This is one way in which their tendency to pay strict attention to all details actually works as a hindrance on their overall life, happiness, and success. Despite this drawback, overall, virgo horoscopes are exceptionally promising ones.
