Virgo is ruled by Mercury, which has the ability to influence its communication skills, making them great communicators, with great at-ease in expressing themselves both in person and on paper. It's no wonder that many Virgos end up following careers in journalism or writers. Virgo's lucky numbers are 5, 14, 15, 23, and 32, and their best colors are beige, grey, and pale-yellow.

Virgo's are usually picked on for their extreme pickiness and critical attitude. They have strong attention to detail, which is often used to help others. Their happiest moments are when they have the opportunity to help other people, which they do with great method and efficiency. They have a great sense of duty, which makes sure they will always work for the greater good.

Virgos may seem shy in the beginning, but as soon as they start trusting, they become friends for life. Their intense and abundant inner life makes them one of the most passionate signs in the Zodiac. Their perfectionist ways may end up making them extremely demanding, which can sometimes become sort of annoying to some people.

Virgos can sometimes lack organizational skills and suffer from low self-confidence, which makes them rely on family and friends' motivation quite frequently. They have a tendency to obsess with perfection, which makes them really picky people. Virgos are extremely sensitive and suspicious and tend to overthink things a lot, which ends up making them feel miserable.

They can have some problems dealing with frustration, whenever things don't go their way. Unfortunately, their often high (and unrealistic) expectations may cause them to become frustrated quite often not only with themselves as also with other people around them. Virgo's biggest challenge is to learn to go with the flow and occasionally accept things as they are.

When you think about Virgo's strongest characteristics, perfectionism, and hard work, then it's no surprise to see celebrities like Beyoncé or Zendaya on the list of famous Virgos. Beyoncé, for example, would have never gotten to where she is now without her extremely hard work, and actress Zendaya is a perfect example of a Virgo that prefers to do her own makeup to make sure it is perfect.

Virgos are also known for their natural sexiness and sensuality, characteristics that famous Virgos Salma Hayek, Idris Elba, Alexander Skarsgard, and Cameron Diaz, have plenty of. When it comes to Virgo's amazing communication skills, who better than Melissa McCarthy, Amy Poehler, or Tyler Perry (all Virgos) to prove it? Colin Firth, Jennifer Hudson, Michelle Williams, and Pink are some other celebrities born under this sign.

You'll be surrounded by a special light in August, which will not go indifferent to everyone around you, particularly any love interests. If you're single, you may have some trouble with any current relationships, but at least you'll be able to form a pretty impressive social circle, so make sure to make the most of it.

There will be less social energy around you in August. You will be more focused on a one-on-one connection to someone around you, which will help to strengthen a friendship bond or a family tie. You will have the ability to identify which relationships are meaningful, and you'll do anything you can to save them and keep them going strong.

When it comes to family, you'll have nothing to worry about. You will be able to count on the support of some of the elder members of your family, and the overall atmosphere will be harmonious. Get ready for some fun get-togethers! You'll have nothing to worry about as well when it comes to family finances, as everything will be looking good.

August sure is looking good so far! When it comes to career, you will find yourself easily achieving your goals this month with the help of co-workers and senior colleagues. Make sure to do some good old networking, as social contacts will be essential for your professional growth, so don't hesitate to get in touch with the people you've met in the last year or so.

If money (or the lack of it) has been on your mind too frequently in the past few months, you can relax as it seems August is bringing some good tidings in the financial area. You will probably receive some money from unexpected sources, just make sure to make all your financial moves after the 23rd, though.



This month, focus on what is really important and make sure to allow yourself plenty of time to rest and relax. Any fitness concerns will reduce in August, and you will be feeling healthier. No stress or tension will come in your way, and you will benefit from an extremely peaceful time when it comes to your health. Enjoy it!

Virgos usually tend to get along better with water and earth signs. Scorpio, for example, one of the water signs, will be a perfect match for Virgo in August. Although some people might say Scorpios are not always the best romantic partner, Virgo can prove them wrong. While Virgo is rational and level-headed, Scorpio is fiery and intense, which creates a much-needed balance.

There are a few signs that Virgo should really keep away from on a regular basis, as the match can be somewhat tricky, but in August, there's one particular sign that stands out. This month, Virgos should be extra careful to stay away from Sagittarius. A relationship with someone from this sign may be accompanied by trust issues, which will undoubtedly cause serious problems.

These two signs will enjoy a lot of fun time together. They will share mutual creativity, passion, and love for outdoor activities. However, Virgo's decisions must be followed to avoid conflicts. Patience will be tested but Virgo and Aries will continue to get each other’s back during tough times.

Virgo and Cancer friendship could be too emotional but they can work it out once they sincerely express their feelings. They will remain comfortable with each other despite the clash with their emotions. On the other hand, Virgo and Cancer in love will have different views on life. Both will be required to step down their pride in order to build a strong relationship.

These two signs are known to be intellectual. They also share the same values and opinions. Virgo needs to remember that Leo could be lazy sometimes for Virgo's energetic getaways. Respecting each other’s boundaries could be a challenge for these two but as soon as they talk about the real matter, they could make the best out of their relationship.

Virgo usually let his or her emotions affect her thoughts and actions. On the other hand, Taurus is the more rational one. Taurus as an intellectual loves to provide new information and Virgo is willing to listen and accept new learnings. Two signs can communicate with one another easily, given that Virgo is a good listener.

When these two signs get along together, it could be a day full of laughter, even in between arguments. Hasty Virgo and patient Libra can talk about many things, ranging from classic movies up to the latest celebrity stars breakup. Both are also understanding with one another but Libra needs to be extra patient with Virgo's rush and unsteadfast decisions.

These two signs have different lifestyles. Virgo is extremely outgoing while Scorpio loves to spend time alone. Virgo's intellect may attract the Scorpio but their relationship won’t work out once the Virgo will try to control most of the things. Scorpio tends to get jealous also, knowing that Virgo has a bigger social circle than most of the other signs.

Virgo and Sagittarius share the same passion for turning learnings into actions. These two can enjoy friendship or romance full of adventures since they both love to explore new knowledge. They can help each other adapt to changes and both are very understanding about Virgo's need for creative freedom and Sagittarius’ need for physical independence.

Virgo's tendency to make rash decisions can make the calm nature of a Capricorn uncomfortable. Virgo needs to understand that Capricorn is taking life seriously and Capricorn needs to understand that Virgo loves fun and adventure. These two should be more aware of each other’s personal space in order to build a strong relationship (if ever they built one).

Virgo will find interests in the creativity of an Aquarius and Aquarius will admire Virgo's intellect and values. These two could make both strong bond friendships and perfect match lovers because they share common interests and beliefs. The energetic Virgo will love Aquarius’ romantic vibe. When together, they won’t drain each other’s energy because both are natural and well-known socialites.

Virgo and Pisces are both open-minded and emotional. Virgo and Pisces friendship can encounter problems due to the harsh words of the energetic Virgo that hurt the feelings of the sensitive Pisces. But both are willing to listen and to forgive. Virgo and Pisces couples can build a powerful connection because Virgo's knowledge and values can inspire the dreamy Pisces.

Virgos can be affectionate, generous, and warmhearted but also self-centered and superficial. When it comes to choosing the right movie, it will all really come down to your current mood. Deep down, you're pretty sentimental, so movies like "Terms of Endearment," "How To Be Single," or "It's a Wonderful Life" may be the right pick for you. If you haven't seen them yet, make sure to do it in August.

We all know how keen on communication Virgos are, something their ruling planet Mercury is responsible for. While they may enjoy ambient music to calm them down and keep them in a peaceful mood, Virgos can also show sincere interest in songs with meaningful lyrics. Leonard Cohen or Beyoncé (which are actually also both Virgos), might be among Virgos' preferences.

Virgos are known for their realistic and practical view of the world, so for them, fictional stories are not really what most fascinates them. They would much rather read an informative piece of content than a novel of any kind. What they do love is anything based on facts, that's what gets them going. In August, you should look for the latest biographies of real-life stories at your local book store.

Virgos are usually more intellectual than active, so they're more likely to be found reading a good book or watching a movie than sweating their hearts out. But when they do get into sports, they usually prefer one that involves perfecting their skills. If you haven't already, this month, it might be a good idea to give golf or surf a little try, for example.

July and August will probably be the best months for Virgo this year, at least in terms of finances, career, and business. There will be some unexpected financial gains that may come from past smart investments that are finally giving something back. You may count on an extra dose of courage to communicate more effectively during the last quarter of the year.
