Virgos are naturally happy zodiac signs. Born between August 23 - September 22, Virgos are the sixth sign of the zodiac calendar.

Virgos are grounded and practical; they love to help others.

Although Virgos can be talkative and sociable, they tend to keep their emotions and needs private because they are so self-reliant.

It can be hard to get a Virgo to open up because their focus is more on others.

While they participate in the outside world, their internal world is truly internal.


What makes a Virgo happy?

Virgos are ruled by Mercury, the fastest planet in astrology.

They are associated with the sixth house, which rules daily tasks and chores.

Things that make a Virgo happy involve work and keeping things tidy.

If you have a Virgo in your life, pay attention to their personal standards. Likely they are high.

As a Virgo, I’ll let you in on the interiority of Virgos’ minds and what makes them happy.

You'll be surprised how pragmatic this zodiac sign can be.

From lists to keeping things organized, here are some things that make a Virgo happy according to astrology:

A clean house.

Virgo’s attention to detail and diligent love for order make them euphoric when their environment is neat and tidy.

Virgos have an affinity for beauty, and a well put together space is one of the most beautiful things to them.

Their earth element means that Virgos rely on structure and order.

Keeping everything in line with how Virgo feels they should be, brings Virgo peace and harmony.


A night in.

Although they can be very sociable, Virgo enjoys their own company the best.

Their intuition to care for others can be draining, so Virgo feels the freest and the most themself when able to have a night alone in their homes carefully curated with their treasures.

At home, a Virgo won't worry about taking care of anyone but themself, and they don’t have to deal with the chaos of the world.

On these nights a Virgo may get lost in the fantasy world of a book.

Virgos express their creativity with a craft or art.

They may clean their entire house, which Virgo actually finds very enjoyable and therapeutic.

ASMR videos.

Again, Virgos find intense satisfaction with beauty and order. Those oh-so-satisfying ASMR videos intrigue and calm the Virgo.


They can become easily stressed because they take on so much responsibility as the overachieving caretakers that they are.

So ASMR can relax and entrance them. Even messy soap cutting is like a taboo thrill to Virgo, messing up something so pretty and solid, to begin with.

Being asked for help.

Virgos are highly intelligent and love to solve problems. They are often the ones people come to for advice, and Virgo loves to help.

Virgos love putting chaos in order be it physical or metaphorical chaos.

They also care deeply for the people in their lives and want to uplift them to their highest potential.


Virgo’s know-it-all attitude can get exhausting for the people in their life.

So much of Virgo’s unsolicited words of wisdom go ignored only for something to go wrong, proving that Virgo was right in the first place.

When someone actually asks for Virgo’s guidance, they are thrilled at the prospect that they can help and someone will heed their advice.

Surprise excursions.

Despite their inclination to be planners, Virgos enjoy spontaneity. They have a mutable modality making Virgo adaptable.

As much as Virgos love their well put together plans, too much monotony can drive anyone crazy.

A good release through a spontaneous adventure can perk up a Virgo, but they might retreat back into their shell for a few days after.


Spontaneity brings out a different, not often seen side of Virgo, they just need the right people to bring it out in them.

Beautiful gardens.

Virgos are born at the end of the summer, the harvest season.

The symbol of Virgo is a woman often holding a stalk of wheat or an ear of corn.

Their season and earth element particularly attune Virgos to nature.

They love beauty, caring for people and things, and growth, making Virgos inclined to love plants.


Plants in bounty create a marvelous wonder for Virgos to look at and tend to.

Virgos, find fulfillment in nurturing these plants and love to see the gorgeous, lush end results.

While flowers would be a welcomed gift to a Virgo, giving them an alive, potted plant would make a Virgo even happier.

Passionate debates.

Virgo’s ruling planet is Mercury, the god of communication.

Their communicative skills mixed with their high intelligence make Virgo's expert debaters.

Sure, Virgos always think that they are right and it is hard to sway them, but they also love learning new things.

They enjoy hearing other perspectives as well as trying to get people to see their side of things.


The only downfall when it comes to a debate with a Virgo is if their challenger is stubborn on an opinion Virgo severely disagrees with.

At that point, the debate needs to end for Virgo’s sanity and composure.
