The sixth sign in the zodiac wheel, Virgo is a mutable sign ruled by Mercury. Much has been said about Virgo being big on criticism. But is that all there is to Virgo? Not at all! They love knowledge, are meticulous and hard workers like no other. They don't give up till they are satisfied with the results. They compete with themselves and you will find them constantly trying to improve something or the other.
Virgo natives will do what they can to ensure their independence and freedom from anything that holds them back. They are sensitive to how people act and react around them and if they see something odd or what is wrong in their eyes, don't expect them to not speak up.
They love rewards but recognition is not what they are aiming for. They are a little shy and it takes them time to warm up to someone. They want others to take the initiative and make an effort to get to know them. Once they like you, you will be amazed by their ability to talk your ear off.
Although it's incorrect to generalize and put all Virgos under the umbrella of workaholics, a lot of them do come alive when they are involved in something productive. They like sharing their ideas and proving their worth in a project. They may express discontent but they are not easily distracted from their goals.
In Virgo, you will find a loyal and trustworthy friend, who will stand by you through good and bad times. They don't give up or shy away from responsibility. What they do dislike is being publicly humiliated or being embarrassed by someone. They hate losing control and if you treat them unfairly, they will walk away without thinking twice about how you will manage without them
