Virgo is the only zodiacal sign symbolized by a female. It’s a toss up as to whether she’s very young and potentially creative or an older woman, intelligent but a bit finicky and spinsterish. It’s the sign’s preciseness, refinement and fastidious love of cleanliness, hygiene and everything in its place. Usually observant, shrewd, critically inclined, judicious, patient, practical supporters of the status quo, they tend to conservatism in all departments of life. Appearing emotionally cold, sometimes this goes deeper, for their habit of suppressing their natural kindness may in the end cause it to wither, with the result that they shrink from committing themselves to friendship, make few close relationships, and those they do manage to make they are careful to keep superficial.
For many born under this sign, the outward lack of feeling may conceal too deep an emotional makeup making them fear giving way. They do not trust others, nor do they have confidence in themselves and their judgments. This is because they are conscious of shortcomings in themselves in the areas of worldliness, practicality, sophistication and the ability to be outgoing.
Virgo brings the art of self-concealment to a high pitch, hiding their anxiety about themselves and their sympathy with other people troubles under a mantle of matter-of-factness and stoical, quiet reserve. Still waters Do run deep in this sign’s psyche. Nonetheless, in their unpretentious, 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 tackle with a practicality not always evident in their own personal relationships
These folks have considerable charm and dignity. In close relationships and marriage they can be genuinely affectionate, making good partners/spouses as well as parents. Their love making is a perfection of technique rather than the expression of desire, and they must be careful not to connect with a partner whose sex drive requires a passion they are incapable of matching.
Virgos have an excellent eye for detail but they may be so meticulous that they neglect larger issues – not seeing the forest for wanting to tidy up the trees. Also, although they are realists, they may slow down projects by being too exact. Practical with their hands, they make quite 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 troubles them and they often lack the latitude of strategic vision that a leader needs. Virgo is essentially the well-honed tactician, admirable in the attainment of limited objectives. Their self-distrust is something they project on to others and tends to make them exacting employers. The demands they make on those under them however are tempered with justice. They have potential abilities in the arts, sciences and languages. They are extremely precise in their use of language especially speaking and writing correctly, clearly, consciously and formally, serving well as grammarians and etymologists rather than in literary interests. 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
