Virgo: Horoscope dates, star sign compatibility, and personality traits

If you’ve ever been absolutely obliterated with a harsh criticism, it’s probably come from a Virgo.

That doesn’t mean the ‘virgin’ of the zodiac is cruel – rather they have high standards for themselves and others, and are happy to judge if you’re not living up to them.

But that’s far from all a Virgo is. Their strict ‘rules’ for life can come off as unbending, but it makes for a strong set of morals.

Remember, none of these are exhaustive, and to get a full picture of your traits and compatibility it’s best to use a natal chart tool. This will show you the stars at your exact time of birth, rather than just what your sun sign is.

If your sun sign is Virgo, though, this is a great place to start.

Virgo horoscope dates

You’re a Virgo if you’re born between 23 August and 22 September.

Some people born on the edge of this timeframe might believe they’re a ‘cusp’. However, there’s no such thing as a cusp. Pop your birth time into a natal chart calculator to see exactly which sun sign you are.

Virgo personality traits

As mentioned, Virgo has the tendency to criticise. None of this is out of malice, but a genuine desire for things to be as they ‘should’ (at least through their eyes).

This earth sign is grounded, practical, and detail-orientated, but they need to ensure they allow themselves to be brought out of their shell. All work and no play is no good for anyone.

The sign depicted by the virgin is illustrative of their approach to life; seeing things at though it were for the first time. This is great in some ways as it gives them a fresh perspective, but can also lead to disappointment when their ideals don’t materialise in real life.

Virgo can be extremely loyal and innately kind, particularly with friends and family. If you need someone to solve your problems, go to your Virgo friend.

Ruled by mercury, career ideas for a Virgo include writing or public speaking, with communication being a forte of theirs. However, to nourish the nurturing part of themselves, they may choose teaching or caring for others as a job.

Virgo compatibility

Rational Virgo and dreamy Pisces are a wonderful match – as long as they can bridge the gap between their rulers mercury and venus.

Pisces has the potential to take Virgo – even just for a while – out of their here-and-now practicality. Meanwhile, Virgo brings order to the Piscean’s cluttered mind and lifestyle.

Similarly, emotional Cancer can complement a Virgo with their sensitivity. Cancer will be keen to prove their loves, which will help Virgo trust them as time goes on.

If Cancer can avoid pressuring their Virgo partner (which will make them retreat), they could have a long-lasting connection with plenty of chemistry.
