Traits, Personality & Characteristics
“If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.”
– Mother Teresa
Writing about the personality traits of any Virgo, but especially a Virgo child, is a humbling experience.
The sage wisdom of famed astrologer Linda Goodman really sums up the Virgo’s soul in just a few sentences;
“Love is man’s and woman’s deepest need. Virgo, The Virgin, comes here to teach that love is pure and learn that love is fulfillment.”
Just like Mother Teresa, your Virgo child incarnated in order to serve humanity and does so by shining the light of unconditional love everywhere they are.

Virgo Child Traits, Personality, & Characteristics
As the parents of a Virgo child it will rapidly become apparent that your child’s personality craves perfection and they are the consummate perfectionists.
They also are mom’s little helpmate with any type of task that makes them feel needed. A lot of this focus comes from the ruling planet of Mercury. Like the Roman god your little one will forever be running hither and yon with another task in hand. This is great but for those moments when they go overboard. Their unselfish nature may lead to neglecting their own needs.
One thing that your Virgo child adores is learning.
You cannot give them too many books or educational tools. This astrology sign has a knack for picking up new skills in part because they really know how to listen. They also know how to explain their questions succinctly making it a little easier to feed this ever-hungry mind.
Remember that your Virgo child is an Earth element. The questions they pose are well-grounded in the reality around them. Just don’t be surprised if they see something you completely overlooked with highly discerning eyes.
That very same discernment often leads to your child wanting to play with “older” toys.
This star sign approaches each challenge with meticulous seriousness.
He or she will fall rapt into a project of taking something apart and putting it back together. When finished, the Virgo child picks up the mess and tidies up everything. You will not have to wag a finger at this child for having a messy room.
This sense of organization and industry may sound like a dream come through for a weary parent, but remind your Virgo to play once in a while. They need a little whimsy in their life or they turn into mini workaholics.
The Virgo soul truly thinks that they must be flawless in order to deserve love. This can be a tough characteristic to contend with as a parent. How do ever get them to truly know, deep down inside that they are worthy?
The Virgo child’s personality isn’t naturally frolicsome. They are too intent on being perfect!
Instilling humor and playfulness in your Virgo is among the greatest gifts you could give him or her.
To temper that “seriousness” you can inspire their imagination at an early age.
Outdoor activities support the Virgo spirit with a healthy outlet for all that seriousness. Consider taking them swimming or on picnics away from the demands of daily life.
This is also the perfect time to bond with your Virgo baby, showing them plentiful physical attention that in turn builds self confidence.
The Virgo Girl
A Virgo girl is among one of the most dependable children you will ever meet. This sun sign likes consistency, stability and trustworthiness and gives of those characteristics to those around her freely. Your girl freely shows you love and requires that in return, and never once does it feel forced.
In the scheme of life you’ll notice that Virgo girls just oozes charm and humor. But she is also an ardent stickler. When something is out of order it makes them antsy – Virgos are all about having frameworks without which they get distracted.
One thing to keep in mind with a Virgo girl is that she never comes by a conclusion quickly. Pose various scenarios then prepare to wait. Your little Virgo will examine every facet of the choice put before them, using her systematic mind, which also means she often makes a terrific decision. Balancing that, once set on a path she becomes very determined and may seem introverted. This is the way your daughter processes new information and ideas. Just make sure that she doesn’t continually withdraw without breaks for fun.
There will be days that you’re nearly certain your Virgo daughter is from another time. She has a sense of tradition and convention that comes across as old fashioned. This reflects the influence of the Earth element that gives the Virgo such strong sensibilities.
Reality always trumps fantasy in your daughter’s life. It can be helpful to buffer some of the intense matters until she’s of an age that they make sense.
The Virgo Boy
Male Virgo children are gentle giants. Yes they’re fastidious and have high expectations but that’s also part of what sets this child apart from the throng. Where other children strive to color inside the lines, the Virgo boy CREATES the lines. The order they bring to situations in which disarray exists is nothing short of amazing for parents who would otherwise dread the piles in the closet.
Your Virgo boy has a lot going on intellectually.
Sometimes it’s hard to keep up with this star sign’s astute rationality. When a discussion comes up your son will very directly recount everything leading up to that moment.
There are no trivial features in the Virgo’s thought process.
Effectively this child is like the elephant – they will never forget important details, which also makes them excellent artists and leaders among their peers.
With parents this aptitude can sometimes prove embarrassing or frustrating when your little Virgo outwits you with shear memory power.
In terms of family dynamics your Virgo son is the ever-logical diplomat. He does not like disputes. Rather he prefers jumping into the fray offering a solution.
As with the other Virgo thought processes, this answer considers everyone in the equation. The word “injustice” isn’t part of your Virgo’s vocabulary, which also means he may leap before he looks and end up in a bit of a jam.
When it comes to personal conflicts, however, your Virgo son reacts quite differently. He has an unusual amount of maturity for his age. When he feels maligned he’s smart enough to simply keep a distance rather than engaging in a quarrel.
