The individual with Ascendants of Virgo appreciate the finely tuned mechanics of sifting through facts and information, finding the truth of the matter, introducing order and reason into almost any situation.

To them, the cardinal sin is to be ignorant of one’s ignorance.
Work is important to them, and they usually accomplish a great deal during their lifetime. Often they are at war within themself, both wanting things to come easily and needing to achieve solely through their own efforts. Control; both of self and of events is what makes they feel secure. As it turns out, most Rising-Virgos do gain through their own hard work rather than through the influence of others.
Ascendants of Virgo have a charm and elegance that is difficult to pin down. They are not always easy to know intimately. Emotionally, it’s hard for them to show their feelings, though a great deal is always going on under the surface.
As children, Rising-Virgos sometimes suffer from poor health but, improve when they get older. For many of Virgo Ascendants, a marriage partner brings property or wealth. In later life, they become property owners, often in a foreign country.
