This has given Virgos a reputation for being extremely fussy and persnickety, going over every minor detail in an effort to get things...just...right.
While they often fail to see the big picture, Virgo's strength comes from an innate curiosity about how things work. If you know anyone who likes deconstructing an electronic toy or gizmo just to see its components, chances are they were born under the sign of Virgo.
Often immaculately dressed, they also generally show a marked interest in the latest health fads, sometimes leading to an inordinate obsession with maintaining peak physical fitness.

usually slow to enter into marriage. Once settled into a domestic partnership, however, they are extremely thoughtful and loyal,
doing everything in their power to make friends and family happy.
Generally self-effacing, Virgos in the workplace are most comfortable working behind the scenes, and excel in positions where they make lasting contributions without having to bask in the limelight. Virgos make excellent researchers, financial officers, bankers, accountants or in any field that will benefit from their extraordinary mastery and attention to detail.
