Those who have Virgo Dominant are highly analytical and adept at minute details. They have keen observational skills and enjoy improving flawed systems. Virgo Doms are hardworking and always aim to be useful and they thrive when able to use their discerning mind.

Practical and efficient, Virgos prefer order and thoughtful organization. They enjoy feeling useful through acts of service and skillful work. Virgos make diligent, detail-oriented employees.

Reserved and humble, Virgos avoid the limelight. They prefer quiet environments where they can concentrate deeply. Too much noise and socializing drains their energy.

Subdued effects, collection and preservation of little things, punctuality, tidiness, and common sense approaches all appeal to them.

Dominant Sign Virgos are particularly capable of facing and coping with reality by adapting and adjusting to circumstances and situations.

They can be highly critical and expect high standards from others. However, they are even more critical of themselves and constantly strive to improve and perfect their skills.
