The Virgo Man
His Traits In Love, Dating, & Life
So, you’ve got your eye on a Virgo man. But ever since you’ve known him you could almost swear he is more like a Gemini, Libra, or Pisces because he has such a dualistic nature. Even stranger, this dualism is based on extremes – epic extremes!
Your Virgo man brings such polar opposites together in the most efficient way possible, it’s just kooky. Unlike the Gemini man who shifts from one extreme to another, the ever-so-analytical Virgo man is able to blend seemingly disparate circumstances and people.
How does he accomplish this? The Virgo male is all in his head. Remember his key phrase “I ANALYZE”. So, the Virgo male often sees the broader picture when looking for solutions to any problem. Somehow, he can see all possible outcomes at once and make the best decision from the options.
The question is, can you handle this calm, cool, and collected thinker – even when he starts behaving more like a Mad Hatter in “Alice in Wonderland?” Because, he will. And, it will work for him! LOL But, will the extreme ride work for you?

With the Virgo man seeming so much like a unique model of the Gemini Man, it should be no surprise that these two Zodiac signs share the same ruling planet which has energies influencing those born under both Sun Signs, but in different ways. Mercury is a planet associated with communication, but more so with the disassembly or dismemberment of things, only to put them together once more or remember them. The energies of Mercury can be sometimes cold, aloof, cool, unemotional, and yes … analytical. Those born under the Sign of Virgo and ruled by this planet enjoy scientific fields, learning, and research.
The Virgo man might come across as very reserved or introverted and will sometimes seem excessively serious. At the same time and in the blink of an eye, the Virgo man can take a different look at reality and still make light of it while joking around. One thing’s for sure, the Virgo guy will keep you hopping and if you want deep, intellectual conversations as your type of pillow talk, then the Virgo man is perfect for you!
Virgo Man In Love & In Bed
(Venus in Virgo)
The Virgo man’s best companion is dependent upon which extreme he is presenting; sometimes he’s so shy and acting like a virgin-like wall flower, and other times he wants to drop the practicality and analytic hat for some good old fashion passion. Virgo Men like broadminded partners with a wide perspective and an open mindset. You can count on him translating perfection in the bedroom as taking his time while making love, as he is wanting to perfect his technique or prolong each ecstatic moment as much as feasibly possible. Romantically outside of the bedroom, the Virgo man is not all gushy and soft and you may find he shares his affection with you by buying you practical gifts.
Virgo Man Traits, Personality, Characteristics
Of course, not every Virgo man can fit so neatly into the basic Virgo description and you can find these highly intelligent creatures range the gamut from highly intellectual to seeming a bit scattered, even if a near genius level of intelligence is present. Without a doubt, the Virgo man is one who gives truth to “with some genius, madness follows.”
When your Virgo man is balanced, you’ve picked a real winner. Your man will have an unbelievable love for all critters and don’t be surprised if he works with animals or dreams about doing so in the future. Yes, he’s a Virgo and all in his head analyzing everything he possibly can to make sure all his ducks are in a row. Some women naturally take to this man’s impressive desire for organization and understanding, and some may find his analytical nature overbearing and oppressive. He may even come across as critical and don’t be at all surprised if his job has some form of critic-related responsibilities, whether he reviews products or works as a pro movie critic for the professional paper. Your Virgo man has a sharp mind, one with a serious eye for the smallest of details. However, you may have trouble trying to figure out how the Virgo man organizes his life because it can seem chaotic outwardly, but it is with a closer look you recognize the sheer genius of his organization tactics.
Think Quicksilver here, the ruling planet of Mercury (another name for Quicksilver), and how hatters at one time used Mercury when making hats …this is what led to the chronic condition called “Mad Hatter Disease.” The disease comes with a whole host of symptoms, but a few of the side effects are the same characteristics you’ll find in your Virgo man if he’s out of balance inside. For one, he might be irritable, introverted, shy, confused a lot, or he might even seem nervous, insecure, and his organizational skills will seem haphazard at best as if all the typical Virgo attributes had literally been overly exposed to mercury vapors, even though surely that is not the case!
Hearth & Home
When you visit a Virgo home you can expect everything to be organized down to the smallest detail. And an absolute mess. Wait, what?
That’s right, what seems like a mess to you is a highly-organized system that only a brilliant Virgo could possibly understand. His eye for detail has everything organized into different piles, categories, values, and however he has decided to label them. Glance around one room in the home of a Virgo and you might find a stack of papers on a desk, another near the desk, another on top of a filing cabinet, and another on an end table. While this seems tad amount to hoarding, it really is an intriguing system of organization since the Virgo has some magical power or psychic sense letting him know the remote location of everything his has stored.
Some Virgos, because of their dualistic nature, might be well organized at work, looking all professional, and a downright hoarder at home. This rule works vice versa too, where the Virgo can be sloppy at work and have a home with a floor so clean you could eat off it and with every item having its own designated place. It is the latter type of Virgo that would be perfect for staging homes for real estate sellers.
Then we have the Virgo of the truest extreme, one who wants their world pure, untainted, unmarred, spotless, and perfect. If it is broken, scratched, or doesn’t look new and polished, he throws it away. If the house is not smelling like bleach, chlorine, ammonia and his favorite scent of Fabreeze, it’s time for a good spring cleaning and he won’t waste a moment righting things to restore his pure, unadulterated environment.
Health & Well-Being
Virgo rules the intestines, spleen, bowels, and abdomen, and this is not surprising if we consider the fact that the digestive tract is not only about the distribution of nutrients in an orderly fashion, but also the removal of waste and bodily toxins. Since the digestive system falls under the Rulership of this sign, the Virgo may find a struggle with maintaining balance in the digestive tract. A healthy diet and the regular use of probiotics may help eliminate some digestive issues. Other health issues that may arise include lactose intolerance, gluten intolerance, food allergies, insulin intolerance (diabetes), and issues with bowel regulation.
The Virgo man will want to drink plenty of water and to consume enough soluble fiber to get the digestive tract in good working order. An extreme Virgo, wanting the body to remain untainted, pure, unadulterated and a pinnacle of health may put a heavy focus on living healthy. To the opposite extreme, one might become a hypochondriac. All natural healing remedies appeal to the Virgo man, who has an affinity with nature, and the practice of Joh-rei, or exposing the Virgo to natural beauty like art and flowers might serve well as a healing modality, even for the most masculine of men.
Career & Finance
Any career that has to do with organizational skills is an ideal job for the Virgo man. He likes to share knowledge so he works well as a teammate or instructor or guide. The Virgo often respects his elders and authorities. Not at all about self-promotion, the Virgo seeks to work within the unit to bring the unit’s work to success and fruition. Routine is craved by the Virgo who sees repetitious action as part of organization.
Your Virgo man might make a great car mechanic as he is about things being in the right and working order. You might find him working as a service professional, or he might pursue a job where he can make use of his amazing analytical skills, like social work or psychology. Virgos are excellent at money management too, as this is something he can analyze regularly, like the stock market and how to invest. The Virgo keeps a prudent eye on money always and prepares for retirement and the future.
How to Attract a Virgo Man
If you want to appeal to the Virgo you best have your act together. He likes women who are just as well organized as he is and if you are putting off chaotic, crazy, or hectic vibes, you’ll push him right out of your ballpark. The Virgo Male demands a classy woman who can be by his side, one who is untainted and pure as possible, even if she is a woman of experience – the Virgo simply prefers the air of innocence.
With the Virgo being all in his head it’s like the Cancer Man in his shell, you’ll have to do some work to make him come out and even attempt to be vulnerable with you. He will be likely shy and very timid when it comes to becoming intimate emotionally. Once you do win his heart you must remain faithful, because the Virgo man doesn’t take adultery lightly and you’re likely to lose him if you are at all unfaithful. Likewise, he will be faithful to you and he is fully capable of a lifetime, monogamous commitment.
Dating a Virgo Man
Virgos enjoy organizing things so puzzles make for a terrific pastime. The Virgo considers cleaning and organizing fun, and they love doing things that take a lot of detail. Model cars, carpentry and building things, assembling things and learning: These are the fun things the Virgo man enjoys. He is likely to be a health fanatic as well, so you may find he passes his time in the gym working out. His love of animals may have him volunteering at the local shelter as well.
The Virgo man expects everyone to behave cordially and rude behavior is considered unacceptable. He doesn’t approve of people hogging the limelight or acting as if the sun rises and sets on their shoulders. The Virgo man when deep in thought does not like to be interrupted during his truth-seeking quests, and he despises those who do not hold high the pearls of wisdom he has discovered during such soulful journeys.
A dirty environment is typically unacceptable to the Virgo, but that doesn’t mean his organized disorganization is considered filthy, quite to the contrary it is orderly chaos exactly as it should be: Organized the Virgo way. The Virgo man is independent for the most part and is unwilling to accept charity or pity.
Best Match for the Virgo Man
Friends and Family
The Virgo Dad is one who is quite attentive to his children, but he is not gushing emotion on them in expressions of love. The Virgo male feels that he must teach his children responsibility and acceptable behaviors so they can succeed in society and it is through these lessons he feels his love for his children is best expressed. Prudent with his finances, he is a good provider and even plans for a child’s college fund early in the child’s life. He brings together the authoritarian and permissive parenting styles to create a balance of high discipline with some flexibility as a parent.
As a friend, the Virgo man is one who is dedicated and loyal. He makes friends with those of high intelligence and often hangs out with people older than himself simply because of the wisdom they have accrued through live experience. He is a wonderful conversationalist, but, being like the Hermit in the Tarot, he also spends a lot of time off by himself in his own world seeking his own truth. If he lets you into his private world you can consider yourself lucky he has done so.
Virgo males are exceptionally well-behaved children who rarely get themselves into any significant trouble. They are often wise beyond their years and may not play with peers of the same age, as they frown upon their frivolous and nonsensical behavior … oh no, your Virgo man takes life way more serious than that and he shows it in his family interactions and his dedication to his family.
Virgo Men are compatible with Virgo partners as both are equally analytical and organized and their expectations in the bedroom are also the same. A Virgo Male can also get along with a Taurus partner who has a love of beauty and the arts, while the Virgo has a love of organization and things being in their right order. Capricorns are also compatible with the Virgo as the Capricorn is quite laid back and understanding. Even Scorpio offers a decent rate of compatibility with the Virgo, as the signs seemingly complement one another with ease.
Libras, while being about balance, do like spending money, and this can irritate the money tight Virgo. Likewise, Leos clash with the Virgo male personality because Leos must have the limelight and Virgos can’t stand that. Aries, being all about action, motion, and constant movement can put off chaotic vibes that are a total turn off to the well balanced, highly detailed Virgo Male.
A Gemini and a Virgo might be able to get along quite well, but chances are the two will be able to come to an agreement on anything easily: Geminis are extreme and Virgos attempt to bring extremes together, so it’s a little like mixing oil and water. Some say Pisces is compatible with Virgo, but this too is questionable, unless there is a good rhythm between the Virgo’s need for solitude and truth seeking and the Pisces sometimes ever-present mood swings.
Astrology & Zodiac Gifts
With Virgos being so particular, they can sometimes be difficult to buy gifts for; consider how their house looks if you plan on buying household items. Are there repetitious brand purchases, or a growing color scheme? Pay attention to the small details the Virgo pays attention to and you’ll soon discover the key to gift buying for the busy Virgo. Organizational items like planners, notebooks, journals, photo albums, and anything related to convenient means of storage are great gifts for the Virgo as well. Maybe your Virgo man can use a new wallet or even a fancy briefcase. If he travels, consider luggage and means or organizing one’s belongings.
Facts, Mythology, & Metaphysics
The sign of Virgo is associated with the Virgo constellation in the sky as well as the stories of Demeter and her daughter Persephone from Greek mythos, and Ceres and Proserpina in Roman myth. Sometimes this sign is linked to Justitia as well, and the scales of balance. Interestingly, these connections point to the mother and virginal aspects of the Goddesses in both instances, thereby hinting at the dualistic, extreme but similar behaviors of the Virgo Man himself. He can be both nurturing but aloof as he protects himself, and he can bring the best of opposites together to come up with new, innovative solutions when necessary.
The Hermit is associated with the sign of Virgo: This is the depiction of a wise seeker of truth holding up a light as he conducts his search. Like The Hermit who goes off into the wilderness alone to find truth, the Virgo Man is likely to spend a lot of time in the wilderness of his own mind searching for his own personal truths and understandings. When The Hermit has found the truth, he waits for others willing to learn of the truth to seek out his guidance, only then will he help light the way for the seeker. On the same token, when a Virgo Man has a personal revelation or epiphany he may not outwardly announce his discovery until someone shows enough serious interest in pursuing what he has come to understand as truth.
At the same time, the ruling planet Mercury connects the Virgo to the Magician. If we consider the Hermit the one who discovers knowledge, we can call the Magician the one who wisely applies the knowledge gained. With thoughts and will aligned, only then can manifestation in the physical take place.
In Numerology, the Number Five resonates with Virgo. Five represents the pentacle, the abyss, the void, but also the very essence of what magic is; It is of spirit, mind, thought, will, and the direction of will that magic happens. The number five is associated with fast moving, fast thinkers, and free thinking individuals who crave knowledge. When in balance the number five resonates in the Virgo making him responsive, caring, passionate, and adventures, but negatively, the number five may appear in a Virgo as a lack of vitality, rigid, inflexible thinking, restlessness, and thoughtlessness or a cold attitude and indifference.
The Chakra associated with Virgo is root Chakra or Muladhara. It seems strange that an analytical Virgo who is all in his head thinking all the time would be associated with a Root Chakra.
See, the Root Chakra is also known as the Base Chakra. This Chakra is closest to the ground and earth – seemingly away from the “Crown Chakra” or ‘a Virgo’s head’. But this oxymoron can be understood if we figure that the vast amount of time a Virgo spends in his head engaged in analytical behaviors, the more separate he becomes from spirit. As the Virgo spends time away from spirit, the more rooted in the physical he/she also becomes.
