Virgo combines the intellect of Mercury with the common sense, practicality of earth. Intelligent and industrious, you value learning. There is a life-long seeking of knowledge, whether that knowledge comes through higher education, on the job training, or self-education. Interest lies in facts and useful information. You seek ideas that may be put to work and have little sympathy for airy-fairy ideals. Your approach to work is methodical, analytical, and detail oriented. Always seeking the most efficient ways to accomplish tasks, you are flexible and open to new and better methods of producing demonstrable results.
An analytical intellect helps you excel at breaking things down into their component parts. You naturally think in terms of "this is step 1, this is step 2, etc." Because of this, it is easy to learn from how-to manuals and to excel at writing them as well as teaching and training others. You also excel at detail-oriented work such as accounting, editing, proof reading.
There is an interest in health-related matters. Your orientation toward being of service makes you a good doctor, nurse, or dietician. Regardless of what you do for a living, you are very likely knowledgeable about vitamins and alternative health remedies. Your interest in health extends to hygiene and cleanliness. Ideally your surroundings are neat and orderly. You function best when everything is in its own place, but should take care not to become fanatical in this regard.
You see order and self-improvement as the norm and emulate an ideal of perfection. Perfection may be a balanced checkbook, a clean home, an efficient workspace, or a healthy body. You offer others "helpful suggestions" so that they may also improve. It may not occur to you that not everyone shares this urge or that what you consider helpful might be considered critical. And when you are upset, but not ready to confront a situation directly, this criticalness turns into nagging. It is important to distinguish between your standards of being helpful and those of others and to learn the difference between being helpful and just plain being critical.
Traits to treasure: Your analytical and discriminatory abilities and attention to detail.
To transform: Avoid getting caught up in details by developing discrimination between what is important and what is not.
