The Virgo Man
Some General Characteristics
Virgo is the sixth sign of the zodiac and are forever the butt of jokes for being so picky and critical . Virgos, more than any other sign, were born to serve, and it gives them great joy. They are industrious, methodical and efficient. The sense of duty borne by these folks is considerable, and it ensures that they will always work for the greater good.
Though Virgos are seldom celibate, they often keep their personal identity intact throughout their lives. This composure is virginal in nature, shows itself in the lives of Virgos through a love of all that is "natural" and a certain purity of spirit that keeps Virgos self-sufficient and self-contained, at least on the surface. Virgos are sensitive to their surroundings and are apt to feel awkward easily.They are generally reticent when faced with anything or anyone new. However, once they feel comfortable, they can talk up a storm. Virgo's symbol is sometimes shown as a woman carrying a sheaf of wisdom, representing the harvesting of wheat at the time of year of the Virgo (late summer).
Virgos are an asset in the workplace as they can be counted on to get things right the first time, every time -- and no detail will be overlooked. They are also balanced and fair in their assessments in keeping with the Mutable Quality assigned to this sign.
Virgo is ruled by Mercury as portrayed in ancient Roman mythology. A Virgo's brain is in overdrive most of the time, which is why these folks get so much done. Those born under this sign are also able communicators and use their mental acuity to maximum advantage. All of this brainpower can make Virgos prone to scepticism, and can even lead to the kind of over-think that surely leads to overkill. The Element associated with Virgo is Earth, and in keeping with that, most Virgos are grounded, salt-of-the-earth types.
Virgins do enjoy material possessions and are picky about what they bring into their lives. They are sometimes calledself-centred, but it's really more of a desire to surround themselves with what's right -- for them. This knack for discernment also serves Virgos well in business, where their decisions are usually dead-on. Those born under this sign are eminently sensible and use their critical eye well. While Virgos can be worrywarts, they do their best to temper these impulses. However, if this nervousness goes unchecked, it can lead to hypochondria, that ugly skeleton in the Virgo's closet. For that reason, Virgos are extremely health conscious, to the point of being storehouses of information on diet and hygiene. Many Virgos even choose a health or medical career so they won't miss a beat.
The benefits of exercise are far more important to Virgo than the process itself. That's why Virgos are likely to time themselves on their runs and get in those 300 sit-ups every day. When it comes to the game of love, Virgos are able to loosen up somewhat and are devoted to their lovers, even if they can be a bit jealous. Since Virgo rules the intestines, worried Virgos need to be wary of bowel upsets. Soothing relief often comes in the way of earth tones, which is why Virgos like to be surrounded by shades of tan and a warm yellow.
