the female domicile of Mercury
Virgo is the sign of practical service to others. More than any other sign, Virgos focus on mastering a skill and putting in use for the benefit of society. Their analytical skills are unmatched, they break down mental concepts and create lists thus transforming chaos into order like no one else. They notice the details that everyone else misses. This is the female domicile of Mercury and now that mental energy is being turned inward and channeled through analysis and observation.
Virgos concern themselves with the practical reality of endeavors or projects. They look at what needs to be done so that the team arrives at the desired location and get down doing their part. Which is why they are very focused on what tangible skill they can bring to the team. The big picture is not their forte but their eye for detail is top-notch. They find a skill they are passionate about and master it to perfection.
Speaking of perfection, imperfections bother them a lot. It is not because they want to criticize theirs or someone else's work but because they really have observational skills and attention to details like no other.
Virgo's worst nightmare? A half-assed job or someone looking at their work before it is finished. Virgo's pride themselves on bringing to the table one perfect skill. And if they make a single typo in an email, they are harder on themselves than many other people for much bigger crimes. They constantly worry that they are not good enough, which is a no-brainer because they are so thorough. But still, they worry. It's Mercury's nervous energy coming out.
People born under this sun sign almost always look calm, collected and focused. They live in their heads a lot, always worrying about a million possible complications that they are working hard on making sure never happen. As a result, they might look distant and somewhat absent. They are not interested in the limelight, authority or power. They like solving practical problems and are always on the watchout for things to improve.
They like to be self-sufficient and to occupy themselves with those background activities that maintain the structure of life. They help by doing the nitty-gritty work that no one wants to do but that actually provides the framework for everything else to work. In that regard, they are like Scorpios - they like the control room, not the stage. Virgos are the multitasking secretary that makes it all possible but never gets any credit. Yet, everyone on the inside knows, she is the person to go to if you want anything done.
In Virgos, the mind-body connection is the strongest. They are picky about what they put in and on their bodies so nutrition, cures and self-care products are carefully chosen and a lot of research is going into making sure all goes smoothly.
In romantic relationships Virgos are equally devoted and serious. They are not fans of light and breezy romances because these serve no practical purpose. The most certain way to know if a Virgo likes you? They do little practical things to make your life easier. They are attracted to people who appreciate their super powers - practical efficiency and dedication to the task.
