Ambitious, practical, and headstrong. Virgo is a true treasure of the zodiac, and it’s only right that Virgo’s spirit animals reflect their wondrous nature.
The spirit animals presented below are a direct representation of the sign’s higher self. It’s the power they embody and carry throughout their waking life.
6 TRUE VIRGO SPIRIT ANIMALS TO KEEP BY YOUR SIDE
The almighty emperor penguin might seem like an odd choice, but they’re built to thrive within the planet’s most extreme habitat, which is exactly the energy that Virgo carries.
Virgo’s are what I call ‘master builders’; they’re incredibly resilient by nature and are always seeking the next goal to tick off their list.
They’re very adaptable and are quick to step up to lead when no one else dares to walk the unknown path.
Not to mention, they’re logical, systematic, and incredibly loyal. Emperor penguins are the epitome of faithful; once they’ve chosen a partner, they’ll stay with them for life.
What they represent: Adaptability, change, individuality, perseverance, courage
How it helps: The emperor penguin shows Virgo that it’s okay to be different; it’s okay to let their unique and extraordinary energy fly high. It encourages Virgo to go after even their loftiest and wildest of goals.
With uber-sharp instincts and hyper-aware of every detail, foxes represent Virgo’s incredible intelligence and practical nature.
Capable of finding many solutions to the same problem, foxes are the dreamers, the go-getters, and the seekers of the world.
They’re a joy to watch and be around, similar to the energy a Virgo brings to intimate social settings. And yet, only a handful of people get to see their pure magic!
Like Virgos, foxes are hesitant to open up to others at first after being hurt and disappointed in the past.
What they represent: Independence, playfulness, beauty, protection, good luck, and wit
How it helps: Fox spirit helps Virgo channel their creative side to make strategic decisions at home and at work. They also encourage Virgo to be more vulnerable around the right people.
The bear spirit perfectly represents Virgo’s innate power. It’s not bold and brazen like a fire sign, it’s more of a subtle, yet ‘don’t take me for a fool’ energy.
Like a bear, you instinctually know not to mess with a Virgo.
They ooze charisma and naturally command respect. Virgos possess unrivaled leadership qualities; you won’t find them quaking in their boots when it’s time to make a tough decision.
Yet, there’s another major reason this is one of Virgo’s spirit animals. It encourages them to ease up on perfectionism and go with the flow.
It wants them to ‘be more’, not necessarily ‘do more’. It wants them to heal the parts of them they’ve buried for many years at a time.
⭐ It’s why Virgo is one of the top practical healers of the zodiac.
What they represent: Taking leaps of faith, slowing down, speaking up for what you believe in, emotional strength, optimism in face of adversity
How it helps: Bear spirit encourages Virgo to lean into their intuition, make the right decisions for them, and release characteristics and traits that no longer serve their path
With their intrinsically care-taking spirit, Beluga whales have been deemed the caretakers of the ocean. They adopt lonely narwhals, an entirely different species, into their own family pod.
Belugas perfectly mirror Virgo’s protective and humanitarian nature.
Virgos who connect to the beluga whale as their spirit animal are often gentle, wise, and have a deep connection to their intuition.
They are also incredibly compassionate and understand the importance of making meaningful connections with others.
Every Virgo I know has established some form of charity or initiative to freely help those in need and make the world a better place.
Virgos have such big hearts and an often overlooked sensitive side. They love helping out in any way they can (even if that means helping complete strangers!).
What they represent: Trust, emotional healing, communication
How it helps: The Beluga inspires Virgo to dig into what gives them meaning in their life and unleashes their charitable, giving nature
The ever-industrious and hard-working bee reflects Virgo’s strong work ethic and ability to bring their dreams and visions to fruition.
The bee swiftly brings good luck, prosperity, and opportunity into a Virgo’s life, and reminds them that they’re always the creator of their destiny.
Ruled by quick-thinking Mercury, the bee spirit encourages Virgo to hone their skills through practice, diligence, and consistency.
Choosing not to do something because you’ll know you’ll be bad at it at first is a classic trait of Virgoan self-sabotage.
What they represent: resourcefulness, community, wealth, harmony, creativity, freedom and the sweetness of life
How it helps: The bee spirit encourages Virgo to embrace the messy, unorderly, and chaotic nature of life so they can seek their own honey and riches in this lifetime.
In Western Astrology, the wolf totem is directly connected with Virgo.
Fiercely loyal and always looking out for their pack, they possess a deep connection to Mother Earth and its elements.
They are in tune with the rhythms of nature and the cycles of the moon. When Virgos connect with the wolf spirit, they can tap into enormous amounts of strength and determination.
Wolves are known for their hunting skills and keen sense of smell, both of which can be seen as metaphors for Virgo’s ability to see through deception.
What they represent: loyalty, strong family ties, nature, understanding, patience, and illusion
How it helps: Wolf spirit encourages Virgo to tap into their wild, untamed side. The side that goes beyond analytics, data, and practicality.
