fussy and a worrier
overcritical and harsh
perfectionist and conservative


º They are most happy, and most often in careers where their attention to detail and perfectionism is appreciated. Many are in medicine and science, accounting, teachers. They have inquiring minds and always want to know the whys and wheres. Their minds are always active looking for better ways to do something.
º Their over-criticalness make them enter friendships slowly; however, they are loyal once a friendship is established. They are worriers and this often causes ulcers. Many have arthritis because of being so critical.
º Virgos keep their youthfulness and rarely show their age. In love, they have difficulty expressing themselves as they desire. They may seem self-sufficient, but they are happiest with someone to love and who loves them.
º Because of their perfectionism, Virgo is one sign that can marry another Virgo.

Virgo is the only zodiacal sign represented by a female. It is sometimes thought of as a potentially creative girl, delicately lovely; sometimes as a somewhat older woman, intelligent but rather pedantic and spinsterish. The latter impression is sometimes confirmed by the Virgoan preciseness, refinement, fastidious love of cleanliness, hygiene and good order, conventionality and aristocratic attitude of reserve. They are usually observant, shrewd, critically inclined, judicious, patient, practical supporters of the status quo, and tend toward conservatism in all departments of life. On the surface they are emotionally cold, and sometimes this goes deeper, for their habit of suppressing their natural kindness may in the end cause it to atrophy, with the result that they shrink from committing themselves to friendship, make few relationships, and those they do make they are careful to keep superficial.

But the outward lack of feeling may, in some individuals born under this sign, conceal too much emotion, to which they are afraid of giving way because they do not trust others, nor do they have confidence in themselves and their judgments. This is because they are conscious of certain shortcomings in themselves of worldliness, of practicality, of sophistication and of outgoingness. So they bring the art of self concealment to a high pitch, hiding their apprehensiveness about themselves and their often considerable sympathy with other people under a mantle of matter-of-factness and undemonstrative, quiet reserve. They are still waters that run deep. Yet in their unassuming, outwardly cheerful and agreeable fashion, they can be sensible, discreet, well spoken, wise and witty, with a good understanding of other people's problems which they can tackle with a practicality not always evident in their own personal relationships.

Both sexes have considerable charm and dignity, which make some male Virgoans appear effeminate when they are not. In marriage they can be genuinely affectionate, making good spouses and parents, but their love making is a perfection of technique rather than the expression of desire, and they must be careful not to mate with a partner whose sex drive requires a passion they cannot match.

They are intellectually inquiring, methodical and logical, studious and teachable. They combine mental ingenuity with the ability to produce a clear analysis of the most complicated problems. They have an excellent eye for detail but they may be so meticulous that they neglect larger issues. Also, although they are realists, they may slow down projects by being too exact. They are practical with their hands, good technicians and have genuine inventive talents, Thoroughness, hard work and conscientiousness are their hallmarks, and they are such perfectionists that, if things go wrong, they are easily discouraged. Because of their ability to see every angle of a many-sided question, they are unhappy with abstract theorizing. Appreciating the many different points of view as they do, they find philosophical concepts difficult, and they vacillate and have no confidence in any conclusions at which they arrive.

With these qualities, they are better as subordinates than leaders. Responsibility irks them and they often lack the breadth of strategic vision that a leader needs Virgoans are essentially tacticians, admirable in the attainment of limited objectives. Their self distrust is something they project on to other people and tends to make them exacting employers, though in the demands they make on those under them they temper this attitude with justice. They have potential abilities in the arts, sciences and languages. Language especially they use correctly, clearly, consciously and formally, as grammarians and etymologists rather than for literary interests, yet they are likely to have a good memory for apt quotations. Although they are well suited for careers in machine drawing, surveying and similar occupations, they are better fitted for a job in a library or office than a workshop.

Their minds are such that they need the stimulus of practical problems to be solved rather than the mere routine or working to set specifications that need no thought. They are careful with money and their interest in statistics makes them excellent bookkeepers and accountants. They also make good editors, physicists and analytical chemists. They may also find success as welfare workers, ministering to those less fortunate than themselves. They can be doctors, nurses, psychologists, teachers, confidential secretaries, technologists, inspectors, musicians, critics, public speakers and writers especially of reference works such as dictionaries and encyclopedias. Both sexes have a deep interest in history, a feature recognized by astrological authorities for at least two hundred years. If they go in for a business career their shrewdness and analytical ingenuity could tempt them into dishonesty, though they usually have enough moral sense to resist temptation. Female Virgoans may find a career in fashion, for they have a flair for dress, in which they can be trend setters. In any profession they choose the natives of this sign readily assimilate new ideas, but always with caution, conserving what they consider worth keeping from the past. They love country life but are unlikely to make good farmers, unless they can contrive to carry out their work without outraging their sense of hygiene and cleanliness.

Their faults, as is usual with all zodiacal types, are the extremes of their virtues. Fastidious reticence and modesty become old-maidishness and persnicketiness; balanced criticism becomes carping and nagging; and concern for detail becomes overspecialization. Virgoans are liable to indecision in wider issues and this can become chronic, turning molehills of minor difficulties into Himalayas of crisis. Their prudence can become guile and their carefulness, turned in on themselves, can produce worriers and hypochondriacs.

THE VIRGO MAN:
intellectual, modest, unemotional, subtle, shyly puritanical. Aggressive pursuit will not find your way to the Virgo man’s heart. He wants quality rather than quantity in love affairs, so you will not find him flitting from one affair to another. Once he is committed, he is committed, but the time he takes to commit may drive the loved one away. He is in no hurry. He will give no reason for jealousy and will care for you with strength throughout all hardships, as long as you are faithful to him. If you ever give him firm reason to doubt your love, he will be through, no gluing back the pieces. Fatherhood is not too important to him, so Virgo men usually have only a few children. Even though he may appear cold and distant, it is because he fears rebuff. He needs a love who is warm and encouraging. He likes his mate to be realistic and dedicated to his needs.

THE VIRGO WOMAN: basically shy, deadly practical, divinely romantic, perfectionist, prompt, efficient. The Virgo woman can fool you, if you expect her to be Virginal. She would not be part of a girly show, but she can be a lover. She may be pure of mind, but she is not dumb. She can spot a liar, so don’t try it with a Virgo woman. Watch your manners and language around a Virgo. She can appear aloof around other people, and become a tiger when alone with the one she loves, provided he has broken down her feelings of reserve. She is attracted to an intelligent, practical man who can make her feel important. She does want to serve and take care of a man.

Just how much of the above represents me?

I'd say....50-60%. A few things are spot on, I'm practical to a point where I think it worries some people. While others are completely inaccurate. The day I want to 'serve and take care of a man' is the day I kill myself. I'm efficient and prompt but not even a wee bit romantic. I tend to keep my emotions in check and while I can be shy in certain situations, I can also be completely out-going in others. And unfortunately, I'am a bit of persnickety perfectionist. XD

I love reading personality profiles based on horoscopes. It's interesting- I always find that these profiles are about 50% right, and that makes it difficult to decide whether there's some accuracy behind horoscopes.

Me too. 50% does seem to be the norm. XD

Horoscopes -- I've found that about 40% of the time they get at least one thing right. The only way for them to be completely accurate is if you pay for personalized horoscopes. ♥
