They know when their world is out of balance, easily identify the discrepancies, and quickly make plans to improve any non-functioning systems. 

Virgo Ascendant inherently wants to remove the inefficiencies from the world . Their goal is to improve, simplify and streamline the way they, and others, do things, because nothing is more unpleasant for the Virgo AC than having their calm disturbed.


They encounter all problems with great flexibility and a clear sense of what is practical. They quickly adjust to new situations and challenges, and know how to deal with them. However, they are rarely aggressive. They solve problems through diplomatic channels, and are ready to compromise and adapt. They are committed to respectful and reasonable cooperation.

Virgo is ruled by the planet Mercury, known as the the god Hermes in Greek mythology, deliverer of messages. He was able to move around very fast and enter three different worlds - the world of the gods, earthlings, and the underworld. 

Virgo Ascendant Motto and Looks

The Virgo Rising motto is "I perfect." They bring perfection to chaos and make sense out of things. They believe in medicine and surgery when, and where, it needs to take place. 

They are often very beautiful, as Virgo rules perfection, and their bodies are very proportionate. They have sharp features, such as cheekbones that stick out and small chins. Often, they look sculpted from Leonardo da Vinci's hands. They don't like to stand out too much, and will wear muted earth colors, such as blues and browns, greens and tans, as well as black, gold, silver and white.  


Virgo Ascendant Qualities - The Good

There is always a better way to do things for the Virgo Ascendant. Life should be harmonious, but they know that it takes hard work to achieve that harmony. Therefore, they are tuned to the intricate details that either improve or deter a smooth and efficient life. They are actually the hardest workers of the Zodiac, besides Capricorns. 

The Virgo Ascendant avoids chaos , and has accessible energy that gets along with just about anyone, as they usually keep quiet when they don't like someone. Their strength is their organizational talent, and their sense of how efficiently reality can be. They always grasp the bigger picture, and instinctively know what to do. There are fewer useless actions with them. They rarely lose control and use their energy wisely. They strive for structure and order. Their rationale, analytical thinking, is what makes them good at their jobs .

Virgo Ascendant Qualities - The Bad

Unfortunately, Virgo Ascendants can suffer with OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder), because everything has to be so perfect for them! Therefore they will wash their hands over and over again, or clean the same spot many times over. They can also be very judgemental if colleagues don't measure up to the work level that they naturally put it and expect, as they cannot handle lazy people. 


If a Virgo Ascendant is not on top of things, and handling issues around them the way they should, with perfection, order, cleanliness and care, chaos can occur within their lives, and they can also put on a lot of weight.
