You often find your fulfilment in serving others and this tendency could also determine your career. Helped in this by a warm heart for others you remain optimistic in your faith in human nature and are able to bounce back when others may become discouraged. This can translate into a strong loyalty, making you a valuable friend and partner.
Your strength and principles mean that you are likely to be the one that’s around when all else fails. This counts for the work environment as well. Diligence, duty, application, perfection – these are some of the key words in describing a typical Virgo and these traits pay dividends at work and at home. You can be unseated, however, when your need for order is frustrated. Pay attention to your own needs in this area to give yourself the best chance to function well.
