14 Things You'll Know Are True If You're A Virgo

You little perfectionist you.

As summer ramps down and the weather begins to cool, we enter Virgo season ready to realign with our goals and regain focus after those playful summer months. Virgo is a practical and dependable Earth sign (no surprise there) with a quick wit and killer organization skills. Those under this sign know how to take and stay in control of their lives, as they never float more than a few inches above being fully grounded and secure. 

In honor of this commendable sign, we put together 14 things you'll know are true if you're a Virgo: 

You're highly discriminating.
Be it with relationships or social events, you're specific about where you choose to engage. Sure, you're choosy, but is that really a bad thing? 

You're a perfectionist.
You pay attention to detail like none other, so it would only make sense that you're a total perfectionist. For you, those things go hand-in-hand. 

You're an superb planner.
You're beyond organized and usually plan all your projects and events to a T. 

And sometimes that comes back to bite you in the you-know-what.
Having expert planning skills is usually a great thing, but in your case, it can sometimes cause unnecessary complications. With all your attention to detail, you run the risk of focusing too much on one area and forgetting to look at the big picture. This can limit you, but let's be serious, you always end up bouncing back.

You're dependable.
And hardworking too.

And not to mention, loyal.
Loyalty, to you, stems not only from your kind heart, but from your practicality as well. Since you're highly selective in all areas of your life, you're serious about those people you allow in. 

You can come across as critical.
You're not trying to be rude, it's just that you see something so very clearly. What others need to understand is that you're critical of yourself, too.

Others may think you're intimidating when they first meet you.
This one can sometimes feel surprising, because you're really not that type of person. You're just so aware of yourself and your surroundings in a way that's loud and clear to others.

You give great advice.
Once it's understood that you're not critical, friends probably flock to you for your clear-headed and realistic advice.

You know how to communicate.
Virgo is ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication. You have a quick wit and can articulate your thoughts and feelings in a clear, straight-forward manner.

Speaking of communication...you're no stranger to uttering the line, "I told you so."
This doesn't come from a bad place—you just truly knew better, and probably, quite literally, told the person so. 

You're the queen of common sense.
I mean...we have brains for a reason, do we not? 

You're goal-oriented.
You have goals—probably lists of goals—that you want to accomplish in your life. You always keep your eye on the prize.

You live life intentionally.
Living with intention is just part of your natural way, and we think that's a beautiful thing.
