Virgo is the sixth sign, the center of the entire horoscope. It is an earth sign, along with Taurus and Capricorn, and their ruling planet is Mercury, which they share with Gemini.
Virgo has a reputation for being down-to-earth, strict, and pedantic in nature, and the other good qualities are often overlooked. Let’s take a look at some interesting Virgo facts!
#1 Obsessed with health(care)
It’s no wonder there are so many Virgo doctors, nurses, and pharmacists. They see their task of helping people as their own form of healing or fulfillment of their life goals.
Since they are obsessed with health, they always have a first aid kit with them, just in case something happens. And if it’s not a first aid kit, it’s at least Band-Aids or headache medicine in your wallet or purse.
Their obsession with health goes hand in hand with a healthy lifestyle and diet. Virgos will try dozens of diets during their lifetime, but they will not always be able to achieve what they want. They tend to get off to a good start, but once something upsets them, they lose hope and strength to continue.
#2 Ruling body parts
Each horoscope sign rules certain parts of the body. While Aries, the first sign of the zodiac, rules the head and brain, the last sign of Pisces governs the feet and toes. Virgo, as the sixth sign of the horoscope, governs the stomach, the digestive system, the appendix, and the pancreas.
These are the most sensitive and vulnerable parts of their body. For this reason, Virgos often suffer from diarrhea, stomach cramps, constipation, or other stomach diseases.
If Virgo is your partner, this part of the body (abdomen area) is very sensitive to touch, arousing excitement. Don’t forget that, especially in the bedroom!
Even after a long day at work, a Virgo can go to another side job or work around their home. These workaholics consider it more as their contentment with life. They must be satisfied that they did enough during the day or that they made enough money to support their family.
Virgos are also willing to sleep twice less just to do as much as possible. All in all, Virgos are versatile and excel in both mental and manual work.
#4 Tidiness & Order
In Virgo’s home, you’ll find everything in order and tidy. You can examine their documents, books, or spice jars in the kitchen to see how well they keep things organized from A to Z.
As far as personal hygiene is concerned, Virgos does not lag behind here either. Mostly Virgo man is recognizable at first glance. They have a sense of beauty and purity and usually take care of themselves more than other horoscope signs do.
The Virgo typically maintains a certain arrangement in their personal belongings or important documents, so they can find them. They can be very particular or pedantic in this regard.
#5 Hard time explaining feelings
Despite what others might say, Virgos do have feelings. They just can’t tell you right away because their logical minds are always active. Because they focus so intently on their thoughts, they give you their emotions in a blunt, quick manner, which makes it seem as if they’re only conveying a basic idea.
It’s not that they don’t know how to communicate their feelings; they just focus so intently on their thoughts that the important ones get filtered out.
#6 The fear of rejection
Because of the way their minds work, Virgos tend to keep their feelings bottled up, which prevents them from taking the first step or opening up to others. An individual with Virgo Horoscope Sign fears being rejected, and this is why he or she constantly thinks about it or avoid interacting with others.
The sign of Virgo demands too much of analytical thinking and not enough looking for the good in oneself, which causes one to overanalyze problems and stay unhappy. Individuals born under the sign of Virgo should not overdetermine and overthink; otherwise, they will not be able to proceed or expect any sort of relationship with this mindset.
#7 Doers, not talkers
It’s unlikely that someone who keeps promising and talking but doesn’t act is a Virgo. They are well known for keeping their promises and doing what they said they would. If they have to do something else at that moment, they will certainly let you know and keep their promise later.
#8 Hard time dealing with compliments
Because of their natural inclination, Virgos require time to build trust in others. They may receive a compliment and not recognize it, or they may accept it with one ear and reject it with the other. Some Virgos finish their drinks and leave the bar after receiving a compliment in hopes of finding something more behind it.
Not all Virgo individuals have high self-esteem. This is why they don’t think that the compliment they gave is sincere.
It’s common for Virgos to suffer from hypochondria, that is, the excessive fear that they’ll catch an infection or that a little knee pain could signify a serious illness.
Even though Virgo believes that money doesn’t grow on trees, they are very generous and will always share with you if they can. They are only greedy when they encounter people they don’t know or don’t trust. Generally speaking, Virgos are very generous and would share the last piece of food with you.
#11 Passionate lovers
Virgos have a special quality that makes a lot of people want to get to know them. They look mysterious and aloof at first glance, but once you trust them and have a relationship with them, their performance in the bedroom will be unmatched! They’re equally willing to provide and receive, and they want your time together to be an unforgettable experience for both of you.
If your intimate relationship becomes mundane, it’s time to discuss it with a Virgo. Otherwise, your Virgo partner will look for pleasure elsewhere.
#12 Loyal partners
A Virgo sign is very loyal if there is enough communication and mutual trust in the relationship. They can show others how proud they are of their partner by standing up for them and remaining loyal. If there’s enough excitement and the relationship is not stereotypical, Virgo individuals will stay with one partner.
#13 They can swear like a trooper
The Virgo astrological sign is associated with a delicate and virginal woman in a white dress, but don’t be deceived; Virgos can be very vulgar!
When upset, Virgo’s vocabulary changes rapidly, and if every vulgar word they say were bricks, they would build a whole house in one day. Despite their refined nature, when they become dissatisfied (such as with human stupidity), they change beyond recognition. This happens occasionally, but it does.
#14 They need mental stimulation
Although the two signs, Virgo and Gemini, function differently, they share one quality in common. Mercury, the planet that rules both of them, is a universal messenger. While Virgos pay more attention to communication than other signs, Gemini individuals are particularly proficient at communicating in written or verbal form, although they are not as apt at verbal communication as Virgos are.
Gemini can’t stand small talk or conversations about matters that aren’t noteworthy or important to them. You can follow up on new, more exciting topics if you speak to Virgo, but they would rather stop answering messages or answering phone calls. If they ignore or don’t answer your messages, you now know the reason. Gemini and Virgo are mental signs, and when their brains aren’t stimulated, they get bored, lose interest, and seek stimulation elsewhere.
#15 They’re fun to be around with
Even if you find Virgos to be down-to-earth, serious, or pedantic, they’re still loads of fun to be around. They just might not appreciate your sense of humor as much as their fellow earth sign Capricorn (check these interesting facts about Capricorn).
It may take some time for Virgo to warm up and loosen up, but I promise you, once you do, you’ll have a lot of fun!
