1. Sees potential in things

Virgo’s goal is perfection. In order to do this, the sign must be able to determine what that “perfection” looks like. Virgo is incredible at being able to take an honest look at where something or someone is in its current state and seeing the great potential it has. This skill can be used to improve itself, take a project or skill to extraordinary heights, or use it to help a friend recognize the huge potential they have, even if the friend can’t see it for themselves.

2. Great work ethic

Few signs of the Zodiac share Virgo’s strong work ethic. Virgo is very focused on honing its skills, whether it is in its career, hobby, or whatever else it has dedicated itself to. This sign pushes itself to work as its own self-respect is dependent upon the level of skill it is able to achieve. Virgo puts its nose to the grindstone and gets the job done.

3. Analytical

Mercury lends Virgo the gift of an analytical mind. It is able to size something up quickly and easily, noticing things others may miss. This helps Virgo reach its goals by allowing it to understand exactly where flaws exist in a system, project, or even an individual, and how those weaknesses can be improved.

4. Helpful

The archetype for Virgo is often referred to as The Servant. Virgo thrives on using its talents in the service of others. The sign is warm and helpful. The people in Virgo’s life benefit from its caring service and Virgo benefits by having its skills appreciated by others. It’s a win-win.

5. Has perseverance

Never underestimate a Virgo. This sign has the capacity to push itself to keep moving forward, even if it has failed or things get tough. For Virgo, giving up isn’t an option it will accept easily. This sign may come off as quiet or unassuming, but don’t let that fool you as Virgo has the will to push itself to the finish line with incredible grit.

6. Practical

Imagination and fantasy are important and fill life with more emotion, color, and innovation, but sometimes things just need to get done quickly and efficiently. This is where Virgo shines. Being an earth sign, Virgo wants to see a physical, material outcome from its efforts, things it can see and touch, not just ideas or theory. And it wants those things to solve problems or be of use somehow. Virgo can be quite resourceful.

7. Mature

Virgo feels as though it has a job to do and being impulsive isn’t going to help get it where it wants to go. This sign can be quite serious and responsible, allowing it to maintain a strong focus on work. Mixing work and play is usually not on the menu for Virgo who prefers a clear distinction between the two.

8. Faithful

Once Virgo has allowed someone into its circle, Virgo will remain faithful to that relationship. Virgo doesn’t just make friends quickly and then jumps from one to the next. This sign has to get to know someone’s character first, which may take a little time, but then is loyal and helpful to that person without fail.

9. Intelligent

Because of Mercury’s influence on the sign, Virgo has a very capable mind. Virgo is curious to learn and has the ability to take in a lot of information quickly and easily. It is a clever sign with a quick wit.

10. Reliable

When Virgo says it will do something, it wouldn’t dream of not fulfilling its obligation. Its word is very important to the sign. Virgo also has the focus and follow-through to remember to show up when it said it would. This helps to make Virgo a great friend or family member as the sign can always be counted on and is there for its loved ones when needed.

11. Able to take criticism

Yes, Virgo can give criticism, but it also has the ability to take criticism very well. Virgo is driven to improve itself and can handle taking orders and negative evaluations as long as it is helping it to get better. This is especially true if Virgo has found a mentor who has already found success in whatever it is striving for. Virgo may see criticism from that person as a great opportunity to help it improve.

12. Detail-oriented

Virgo thrives on the fine details. With its analytical mind, it is able to dig into the little parts and pieces that others may ignore. Because of this, Virgo has the capacity to build something magnificent and achieve excellence in whatever it is pursuing. Perfecting the details takes time, but Virgo’s fantastic work ethic and ability to focus help make it possible.

13. Organized

Disarray and disorder aren’t things that Virgo is comfortable with. Virgo likes things to make sense and strives to find order where there is none. This doesn’t mean that it has the cleanest desk, or room, necessarily, but Virgo probably has a system, even if no one else understands it.

14. Great at problem-solving

With its analytical mind and practical nature, Virgo can be fantastic at fixing things. It may be able to quickly assess what is going wrong with a situation and then find the easiest and most efficient solution. In addition, its perseverance and cool head help make Virgo a great sign to have around when a problem arises.
