Virgo and Scorpio personalities


Count on Virgo to do the right thing. Virgos are known to be organized and responsible. They prefer things to go a certain way — their way, typically well-thought-out — and can feel stressed when things don’t go according to plan. They are loyal, kind, hardworking and practical. Virgos may be shy and overly critical of themselves and others. However, they have patience and are true friends that will fight on behalf of those they love.


While this water sign has all the regular trappings of a water sign, like being emotional and moody, Scorpio also has fiery elements. See: That temperament. Because Scorpio is so loyal, they expect the same in return — so if you cross them, expect a grudge. While they can often be mysterious, they are also very forward: You will be aware if you have their interest or not. Scorpios can be possessive of the people in their lives, keeping both their loved ones and their enemies close and closer.
