Virgo as a Friend and Family Member

A Virgo is a helpful friend to have indeed. Excellent at giving advice, they really know how to solve any problem. What advice do they give? You’ll find that a Virgo will remind you to take good care of yourself, as health is a focal point for them. And when the meal is done, they’ll be first to jump up and start the dishes.

Loving and dedicated to family, Virgos are also first on the scene when care is needed. When someone reaches old age or is ill, a Virgo will be there doing all that is needed. While they aren’t known for showing their feelings, they will show them through deed rather than word.

Virgo as a Lover

It’s important for a Virgo lover to feel needed by his or her mate. Outside the bedroom is where the majority of foreplay will happen for this sign. Tactile, methodical, and willing to take as long as is needed (*wink wink*), they make excellent lovers.

Even though a Virgo won’t express many words of love, they will show their affections while under the sheets. Virgos prefer to have a few strong connections rather than many partners. Life partners are chosen based on how important and needed the Virgo feels they are in their lives. They are dedicated spouses that love to live on the wild side once and a while.

Virgo and Career & Money

Industrious, discriminating, and scientific by nature, Virgos really know how to get to the heart of the matter. They are exceptionally methodical and do well in jobs that require organization. If there’s anything out of order, set a Virgo to the task!

Career: When focused on a job, Virgos push themselves to perfection, leaving no stone unturned. Their exacting nature and unbeatable pride will make everything is exactly as it should be. When they feel their talent falls short, they’ll turn to the books to learn whatever they need to improve. Careers suited to this sign include doctor, nurse, psychologist, teacher, writer, or critic.

Money: Virgos are excellent with their money. They generally keep a strict grasp on what they spend, and strive to put away as much money as they can. They plan well in advance for expenditures, and when it comes to shopping, they aren’t apt to overspend. Every now and then Virgos can be seen buying themselves something of beauty, though. They love the arts and enjoy decorating their homes with tasteful possessions.
