Virgo's nature makes for a reliable and steady sort who relishes the opportunity to be helpful to their partners. Those born under Virgo tends to strive for the perfect relationship. A relationship with a strong yet sensitive partner is one which guarantees success. The independent and never clingy Virgo may seem ultra-cool on the outside, but inside smolders a red-hot ravisher waiting to release potent charms on a deserving partner. A natural state for Virgo in love is to analyze the situation while exploring it deeply. This will show off the Virgo as steady, solid and far from a flirt. It is one lover at a time for the loyal Virgo, who reveres a relationship blessed with total honesty lest jealousy and feelings of inadequacy come to the fore. Love comes to Virgo slowly, carefully and sweetly, and the desire to learn all about their lover makes those born under this sign ideal lovers themselves. The ideal Virgo soul mate is well-dressed, empathetic and dying to show their Virgo a good time.
As a rule, Virgo children are conscientious students. They enjoy the routine and discipline of school. They do, however, like to know "why" a certain procedure is required. If the answer is acceptable, they willingly comply. Out of school, they enjoy working with their hands. The girls have a flair for sewing, and the boys enjoy tinkering with bicycles, wood products, and construction kits. They must be encouraged, however, not to be too fussy. This child needs to feel appreciated as there is sometimes a sense of not measuring up, since Virgo children expect themselves and everyone else to be perfect. These children will have strong preferences, but these can be changed through reasoning.
A Virgo can be a difficult parent if they allow their love of neatness and tidiness to become all important. They must, also, watch their tendency to be over-critical. However, they are extremely helpful when it comes to assisting their children with homework or handiwork of any type. Because of their inability to express their affections easily, they must actively cultivate and project warmth to their children.
