Take a look at Virgos for example. Born between August 23 and September 22, the sun sign’s motto is: "I analyze, therefore I am." They are sincere, dependable and trust worthy employees. They advance quickly at intellectual tasks and exhibit Vulcan like logic in the work place which can be quite frustrating depending on your side of the debate.
Good, bad or otherwise, Virgos are: analytical, meticulous, practical, conscientious, hard working, sensible, efficient, orderly, health conscious, careful with money, serious, nit-picky, concise, detailed, sensitive, efficient, cautious, intelligent, perceptive, contemplative, prudent perfectionists.
Dr. Standley says that this sign is so methodical it would be more likely that the bank would make a mistake than a Virgo would bounce a check. Probably one of the best signs to employ, Virgos rule the 6th house of the zodiac which includes: daily life, routine, health, hygiene, food, work, employees, service, skills, servants, small animals, clothing, sickness, working environment, skills, pets, animals and service.
While Virgos can be counted on to consistently deliver work of the highest caliber, they are so detail oriented it can be hard for them to know when to stop and concede that the task is complete. This can make it very tough to get them to sign off on a project until the last minute of a deadline.
Careers that Virgos find captivating include: Architecture, Editor, Printer, Travelling Salesperson, Accounting, Bookkeeping, Computer Analyst, Contractor, Data Operator, Dental Hygenist, Dietician, Medical Field, Housekeeper, Personal Assistant, and Proofreader etc. Some other good careers for Virgos are Actuary, Investment Banker, Stockbroker, Insurance Agent, Corrections Officer, Government Minister, or Accountant.
Sharing the same workspace can be pleasurable or painful depending on how well you gel with coworkers. Virgos tend to thrive when working with sun signs that include Taurus, Capricorn, Sagittarius, and other Virgos. Aries, Aquarius, Gemini and Pisces born people are the most challenging for Virgos to work with personality wise. Teams that partner Virgos with Leo, Cancer, Libra or Scorpio members could be a brilliant success or a horrible disaster depending on how the work dynamic is set up.
