The lunar nature, when it's expressed through Virgo, seeks purification, well-being and order. 

The Moon in Virgo person is uniquely aware of the physical side of life. This is reflected in their grasp of the details, and a desire to continually tweak the daily routine for maximum benefit. For them, the routine is the thing, and many are admired for their consistent discipline from day to day.

Those with Moon in Virgo are happiest when at home in their own skin, which so often comes from having a healthy regimen. But this goes beyond exercising to include things like solitary walks to clear the mind, and time spent writing in a journal. Ideally, they’ll refine their day so that mind, body and spirit end up feeling refreshed.

When Virgoan qualities inhabit the Moon, these routines become a daily emotional need. Other habits that exercise their active minds might be doing crossword puzzles, reading the morning paper or getting lost in books.

Upon first meeting a Moon in Virgo, they’ll likely observe you coolly and without any signs that you’ll be welcomed into their circle. They respect those that offer practical insights and logical thinking over those whose minds are by nature chaotic. On the other hand, a disheveled person might become a special improvement project since above all the Virgo Moon loves to be of service.

In romance, they’ll be discriminating, but also aren’t afraid to take on a “fixer-upper.” The problem comes when the Virgo Moon takes the critical parent role too far, eclipsing all others. The key is maintaining a wholesome balance in the relationship, and not taking the constant advice as a stamp of disapproval, but as a sign of their devoted affection.
