Why are Virgos so successful?

Just look at Zendaya, Beyonce, Keanu Reeves, and Nick Jonas, each one is a successful Virgo. They set new goals for themselves and surpass them every time. It's amazing what a Virgo can do when they set their mind to it. What is it about the Virgo personality that gives them an edge in the workplace?

Here are a few reasons why Virgos are so successful, according to astrology:

1. Virgos are associated with the sixth solar house which rules work and daily duties.

Ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication, Virgos are phenomenal schedulers who are never caught without a to-do list or agenda in hand. Their detail-oriented planning helps to aid in their success by giving them control.

Specific plans are a lifeline to a Virgo and they feel lost if they don’t have a scheduled routine. They will plan out everything from their daily tasks to where they will be in five years’ time.

2. Virgos hold themselves to incredibly high standards and are constantly striving for perfection.

Even if it means immense amounts of stress and sleepless nights, a Virgo will get the job done and get it done correctly. Although they will always meet deadlines and perform all tasks adequately, they are also extreme overachievers. To a Virgo, a job well done is usually not a job done well enough in their eyes. They will always feel that they could have done better or achieved more regardless of their success.

3. They have the determination and drive to climb career ladders quickly and squash goals in record time.

While this overachieving attitude may be okay for a Virgo, they sometimes try to push this energy on others and expect the same from them. For many signs, this creates a compatibility problem and will drive them away.

This is why it is so important, for Virgos especially, to choose friends and partners that are in a compatible Sun sign. Virgos are the most compatible with Taurus, Scorpio, Capricorn, and most of all, Cancer. They should avoid Gemini and Sagittarius signs as often as possible due to their overwhelming lack of compatibility.

Another trait that aids in Virgo's success is their friendly demeanor and willingness to lend a helping hand. Although they may come off as shy at first, they will quickly become a reliable friend. This makes networking much easier for them and people are always pleasantly surprised once their true personality shines through.

4. Virgo's willingness to help others makes them stand out in most work settings as a team player.

This often leads to their boss or supervisor taking notice in their efforts to improve the workplace. Virgo season falls between August 23rd and September 22nd, making them an earth sign.

Earth signs are best known for their traits of resourcefulness, efficiency, and skills. These are traits that employers look for in potential career candidates, giving Virgos an extra push in the direction of success.

Virgos also go through life with the idea in mind that everything they do is an extension of themselves, giving them even more reasons to strive for greatness. This can be seen in everything from what kind of car they choose to drive to how they decorate their cubicle. They paint their lives with color and put their own personal touch on everything they do, giving them an edge over competitors.

5. One of the biggest attributes of Virgo’s success is their willingness to learn.

Virgos are considered to be lifelong learners because of their passion to consistently learn new things and explore.

They stay curious about the world and will always be on the hunt for more knowledge. You will always find the Virgo in your life buried in a new book or conducting research about new topics.

They prefer to be learning or laying low with those they are close to rather than being the social butterfly. This kind of attitude keeps them out of trouble and helps them to remain focused on manifesting success.

6. Outside of being lifelong learners, Virgos are also extremely analytical.

They will analyze their work until it is perfect in every way and to everybody. While this does help them to avoid errors, it can also backfire when they are working in a group setting. They can bring others down by being overly critical and it’s important that they learn to be tactful in the way they work within a group.

Being the most perfectionist and analytical sign in the zodiac, it’s no shock that they hate to make assumptions. Virgos only rely on factual content for everything in their life and do not trust assumptions whatsoever. This helps them on their track to success because they always have factual evidence to back up claims made in and out of the workplace.

7. Virgos are also notorious neat freaks and keep their spaces spotless.

A Virgo will never be running around looking for important paperwork or anything for that matter because it will all be put away and labeled. Nothing in their life will ever be messy and this keeps them on track to reach their goals without missing a beat.

All of these traits create a clear pathway to leading a successful life. It’s safe to say that Virgos are the Miranda Priestly's of the zodiac world. Virgos are built for success and live and breathe the fundamentals of getting to their goals.

Absolutely every aspect of a Virgo will aid in their ability to succeed. Other zodiac signs should take notes from Virgo and adapt their planning, learning, and networking skills. We can’t all be as perfect as Virgos, but we can certainly try.
