Virgo - The Virgin

Virgo - The Virgin

Virgo - The Virgin: August 23 to September 23

The sign of the Virgin represents a very independent person. They are fully able to put their intelligence to use and get things done for themselves. However that their narrow mindedness can cause their creativity to suffer so that they lead regular routine lives. Virgins are reputed to be adept at languages, to possess a love of literature, a deep interest in history and statistics, and a good memory for details. They may dwell too much on the past and over complicate things which may limit their ability to move forward.

Critical – Choosy – Cold – Inflexible – Fault finding

The Virgin is seasonally associated with the end of summer and the onset of autumn when nature - having borne its fruit - recedes. Virgo is considered a negative polarity or passive or introvert sign. This gives the characteristics of being reflective and receptive to the ideas of others. This passivity is accompanied by a flair for discrimination and eloquence with words, which gives Virgins a reputation for civility and good manners. They are said to have a talent for projects which require precision and detail, and to excel at skills and crafts which require patience and care. On the negative, they are highly sensitive to perceived criticism, and can appear to worry unduly about the need to make things as perfect as they can be.

Generally, the qualities of the Virgin are considered have a high compatibility with: Capricorn, Taurus and Pisces, and to a lesser extent with the water signs: Cancer and Scorpio. Virgo has a Medium Compatibility with: Aries and Aquarius. The Virgin has a Low Compatibility with: Gemini, Libra and Sagittarius. However, compatibility based on sun-sign alone is considered to be only a very general guideline.

Virgo As For Me
by: Namra (in Pakistan)

For Virgoans its now a cliché that they are fond of cleanliness and can't bear even a bit of mess but that's not true for all virgoans. Some are totally unlike that. Virgoans can be extremely chill about what people around are up to. They can stand messy people and wont say a word against them but secretly they might try to keep their surrounding nice and tidy careful not to cause trouble to anyone.

They would rarely get angry in front of you. With the near ones they are often torturing creatures but they are extremely well behaved with the people who are not close to them.

They don't show the world their real and deep thoughts. They are in comfort zone to keep it private. Virgoans have deep thinking which they don't share with anyone. Not that they don't find anyone but because they feel safe keeping it to themselves.

They are always critical of themselves as well as others though they are not judgemental. They tend to keep their opinions to themselves. Mostly the introvert and kind ones. They are introvert but always up for fun with the closed ones. They are truly adventurous and risk takers. They have different phases in their lives through which they grow up and finally adopt one personality. They are perfect friends to confide in with. They are faithful loving and down to earth. They are the true helpers. They are often arrogant and cruel too. They never give up too easily

Older Virgo Woman with Younger Taurus Male
by: Tonya

I am a Virgo woman who too soon got involved with a Taurus male and we hit it off perfectly at first. But as time went by, everything he presented about himself began to change which made me uneasy and I began to question our whole relationship.

I admit I don't like change and when too much change came into play too soon after the romance all my hopes for making it with this male died which resulted in my being verbally harsh toward his feelings and careless toward his wants.

All I can say is, it was good while it lasted but I would like to understand why it didn't work.

My birthday is September 18, 1990. I am an indigo person. When I was born, one of my mother’s friends, who is an astrologer, made me a personalized Natal Chart. This chart has been (to my dismay) lost in our move from California to Michigan. I have done a free natal chart on line, and this brings me some horoscope-ical solace, but it still leaves much to be desired.

I do not feel like a Virgo at all though, and this is very confusing to me. I am intelligent, but I don't look at all like a Virgo, my eyes are bright and large. I have extremely strong will power, and I am not nit-picky at all really. I am messy, and probably the least conservative person I know. I am open and bubbly except when I get flustered with humanity, at which point I am irritable and grumpy. I enjoy eclectic things like an Aquarius. I am artistic and creative. Some traits fit, but for the most part, they don't. Can someone help me figure this out please?

There Are Loads Of Sites To Get Help At.

Hello Jessica, do not despair. Do not try and "fit into" the standard, Virgos are like -------.

You need to look at your entire chart. How many planets are in Virgo? Are the planets in Virgo exalted/in fall? If the planets are in fall, their power is weakened. What are the degrees of the planets in the sign? For example, Jupiter or any planet acts differently in 0 degrees as opposed to 30 degrees of a particular sign. Are your planets in retrograde??? This is significant from the standpoint of past life information. Also, what does your transiting chart say to your natal chart? When planets make connections to planets in your natal chart, this sets off things (processes, events etc). There are a number of excellent websites where astrologers meet and discuss charts, planets etc.. Check out Astrologers Community, ASTROTABLETALK and many other sites. There are many wonderful sites with people who are very knowledgeable and eager to help.

Peace to You
