Virgo's are thinkers who enjoy analyzing, planning and then working hard to complete what they have started. They enjoy tangible results and rewards; kibitzing and lollygagging is not something Virgo's can tolerate for any length of time. They would rather do it themselves then rely on others for completing projects or tasks. Famous Virgo, Mother Teresa said "Do not wait for leaders; do it alone, person to person," which really expresses their commitment and drive to accomplish and to be independent in the process.
Virgo's are often attracted to work situations that are lacking in organization and follow through. They love solving a mystery and bringing order to chaos. Their forte is making wonderful changes. Virgo's are adaptable people who have internal discipline and realize that change starts from the inside and vibrates out. Leo Tolstoy is credited with this observation, "Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself." Author H.G. Wells also chimed in with this Virgo gem; "Adapt or perish, now as ever, is nature's inexorable imperative."
They can end up complaining about their work because they choose positions which make them indispensable with heavy work loads and high frustration levels. But they keep on working to maintain what that have implemented with the hopes that leading by example may convince others of its merit.
They have high ideals and hold themselves and others to those ideals; analyzing deeply the consequences of those actions. This is emphasized by H.G. Wells, "It is not reasonable that those who gamble with men's lives should not pay with their own." They have a strong sense of right and wrong which can make them seem critical but it is their keen powers of observation and introspection that compel Virgo. Leonard Cohen expands this idea, "Let judges secretly despair of justice: their verdicts will be more acute. Let generals secretly despair of triumph; killing will be defamed. Let priests secretly despair of faith: their compassion will be true."
