Virgo woman personality traits and characteristics

Virgo women have their very own brand of "professional sexy". Their outwardly reserved, intellectual and precise nature creates the perfect contrast for their wilder side within... they may not be the most overtly sexual of the signs, but their subtlety works just as efficiently.

Brains and beauty

If you're turned on by intelligent people then beware! Virgo's are nearly always intellectual, and this woman's fast mind can find humor in most things, and often empathize with others more than her emotions alone would allow. This ability to empathize while still remaining detached makes them some of the best counselors, therapists and psychologists.

Virgo women typically have a fantastic eye for detail and enjoy order, precision and efficiency in all things. This has several implications, for example she is likely to prefer routines to random or chaotic approaches, and is very likely to have a fondness for keeping lists and other tools which improve efficiency.

A common fault of Virgo women is to be highly critical when perfection is not found. This usually applies double to herself and her own performance, which can sometimes lead to reduced self confidence. Virgos often have trouble relaxing, and often hate wasting time, or sitting idle.

Later in life she's likely to look much younger than she really is. Call it unfair but this is a sign which usually ages very well. One factor in this is that Virgo women are more likely than most to monitor what they eat and drink, how frequently they exercise, and generally to enjoy a healthy lifestyle.

She is likely to be fairly reserved and shy with people she doesn't know, and may be uncomfortable receiving too much attention, perhaps embarrassing easily. She is very unlikely to ever display any irrational or emotional outbursts in public, generally preferring to be discreet in all things.

Analytical, discriminating, precise, considerate and reliable, she is likely to enjoy work of a technical or analytical nature, quite possibly working behind the scenes to ensure the efficiency of an organization, rather than taking center stage or seeking direct recognition for her achievements.

On the negative side, she can sometimes be seen as picky, aloof, sarcastic, pessimistic or whiny. She assumes everyone views her with the same critical eye that she possesses, which can sap her self confidence. Ironically, she is likely to be more perfect than most of us, yet she's the only one who can't see it. This level of self imposed modesty can be particularly endearing.

Virgo woman questions

What are Virgo women like in bed?

Virgos are often portrayed poorly in this area, directly or indirectly considered the least sexual of all the signs. The reality however is that they are amongst the most sexual, they're just discreet about it. This is the type of woman who will make double entendres in preference to flashing cleavage. Love it or hate it, but don't make the mistake of assuming she's a prude!

If you have a particularly hesitant Virgo woman, then it's worth noting she may be more comfortable being asked to do something the first time or two rather than initiating sexual acts herself. In these cases the 'cleaner' you can keep her conscience, the less inhibited she will be in the long term.

This is a woman who takes feedback to heart, so it's also worth noting that criticism can do a lot of harm, while encouragement can pay big dividends. Overall, Virgo women are often more comfortable with a confident lover, at least at the start of a relationship.

Are Virgo women kinky?

This is always a hard question to answer, as one person's idea of kinky can be very different to someone else's. Individuals also vary a lot, so this is a bad area to generalize in. All things being equal though, Virgo women are about average. Typically they enjoy mental stimulation such as role playing (as long as you're a worthy opponent!) more than vanilla kinkiness for it's own sake.

What's it like dating a Virgo woman?

The Virgo woman is a particularly loyal person, and gains much satisfaction from building and maintaining a healthy and functional relationship and lifestyle. Treat her well and she will enjoy doing the same for you. If you're too unstable, unpredictable, immature etc then she may begin to feel like a parent.

While often reserved towards strangers, Virgos show a very different side of themselves to friends and loved ones and tend to be highly entertaining and stimulating conversationalists, offering insights on almost any subject. If she seems too serious, it's likely that will change later!

How loyal are Virgo women?

The Virgo woman is typically very loyal. One warning however in this area, as with other signs who dislike confrontation Virgos can be known to take action on their own rather than repeat arguments. Especially if you're overly aggressive or dominant. This isn't a woman who cheats just for the thrill of it, or the ego boost, or other 'shallow' reasons, however she may do so when unhappy or dissatisfied for long periods.

How to know if a Virgo woman loves you?

As in all things, she will analyze love and seek perfection. This is of course a difficult area to do either, and as a result she can be particularly hesitant and stand-offish until she's comfortable with a partner. Just to be clear, this doesn't mean you need to be perfect as they appreciate imperfection too. For a full description of how a Virgo woman acts when in love please see our article on Virgo in love

How to keep a Virgo woman?

Virgo women tend to be independent and free thinking, and appreciate the same in a partner. Conversation and intellectual connection tends to be very important to them. They also tend to mesh well with a partner who appreciates their hardworking, down to earth style, and fast and clever mind.

Strong, stable and confident he or she should ideally be comfortable with being fairly dominant at the start of the relationship, both socially and sexually. In the longer term however treating her as a partner and an equal will win more points.

Virgo woman long distance and online relationships

Online relationships and long distance relationships have unique challenges. One of these is that you get to see one side of someone very clearly: their personality. You don't however get to see anything about other factors such as sexual attraction. My compatibility reports address this by scoring all factors alongside each other so you can see the whole picture, with any strong or weak areas highlighted. To explore this further please see my article on online relationships.

Do Virgo women cheat?

Generally they don't. But, this is the type of generic question that often gets asked or answered whenever astrology is discussed. Individual experiences are then quoted back and forth as proof that Virgo women do or don't. Individuals get offended by general statements that don't apply to them, and everything goes downhill fast. The diagram below shows the problem here:

Virgo woman personality

Astrology can predict someone's personality very accurately when the placement of all their planets is calculated. In that situation we can also predict their most likely behavior.

From just someone's sun sign however we can only predict some aspects of their personality and it's too much of a leap to try and predict behavior from just those. Astrology has fairly precise limits. This is an example of an area where sun signs are just too broad and clumsy to give an answer. A real compatibility reading is required to answer the question.

How to make a Virgo woman fall in love with you?

This is a question which is very hard to give a general answer on, as no two Virgo women are totally identical. The key is understanding her and what she finds most attractive in a partner. Astrology can provide a wealth of information to enable this, however natal charts need to be prepared and studied to do so. Please see the article on seduction and astrology for more information on this.

So is this article conclusive?

No! This article is based only on sun signs. In order to provide a lot of people with information those are a convenient and fast way to generalize, but far from conclusive at this broad level. There are many other planet placements which all affect someone's personality.

To get a complete picture of someone through astrology we need to take all those other planets and their interactions into account. To do this we need to create and interpret their unique natal chart. For information on what's involved in this and the opportunity to obtain one for yourself and your partner please see the compatibility readings page.
