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 how 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. In Greek mythology, the god Hermes delivered messages. He could move very fast and enter three different worlds: the world of the gods, earthlings, and the underworld. However, Virgo is also represented by Demeter, goddess of the harvest, as well as her daughter, virginal daughter Persephone, before she became queen of the underworld and wife of Hades. (Virgo and Scorpio make a ⚹extile aspect and get along exceptionally well). 

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 connected to domestic animals and everyday work. 


Virgo rules perfection, so they are often beautiful, and their bodies are 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 efficient 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 and analytical thinking are what make them good at their jobs.


Virgo Ascendant Qualities - The Bad

Unfortunately, Virgo Ascendants can suffer from 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 in 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 in their lives, and they can also put on a lot of weight. 

Virgo Descendant - Pisces

The corresponding Descendant to the Virgo Ascendant is the zodiac sign Pisces. They have the sixth sense of seeing the invisible behind what is visible. They are also attracted to people who help them let loose a little instead of being so uptight the whole time. Pisces Descendant teaches them to have unconditional love for their partners.


Virgo rules the 6th house of health and everyday work, looking at the details, while Pisces rules the 12th house, which has no boundaries. This is a very interesting balance, and Virgo Risings often have old souls, as do Pisces and Pisces Ascendants.
