To the world you may give the impression of calm authority but you always have a desire to be up and doing, rearranging and improving. You can simply exhaust yourself more by sitting still than others do moving around. Virgos have a ceaseless drive to accomplish and perfect. It’s almost impossible to put off until tomorrow what can be done today or to do later what might be done now. You are in a word organized. Your idea of taking it easy would seem like hard work for most people. You are a doer.
Your emotional life is a constant striving to bring order out of chaos. Although you have great capacity for love, love alone isn’t enough for you to be happy. You must justify your life - always ready to give a reckoning on weather there’s a profit or a loss. You are ambitious but not just for money, you want to learn more. To gain wisdom and put this wisdom to practical use is important for you.
Your astrological symbol of the Virgin tends to be misunderstood. It doesn’t mean you’re a prude or lack sensuality. The Virgin stands for purity of purpose. You’re not in the game of life to cheat or extract from others. You have higher motives. You want to be of use. In ancient times Virgo was the sign of harvest. The symbolic meaning of the Virgin holding a sheaf of wheat is that Virgos reap what has been sown - knowledge, information, skills - and harvest this energy to do something of practical benefit. In the same way that wheat turns into bread to feed out bodies, you want to utilize the gifts you were born with to nourish the world.
Intelligence is the hallmark of your sign. You have an excellent memory, an analytical mind and are known for crystal clear thinking. You also have a keen ability to probe into human motivations. People like to check their plans with you before putting them into action because you have microscopic vision when it comes to detecting a flaw. Your superb vision cuts through muddled thinking like a laser beam. You instantly zero in on a problem, take apart difficulties and put them back together in proper order.
A warm, loving relationship brings out the best in any born under this sign because basically you are kind, devoted and very loyal. When your affections are engaged you tirelessly try to serve loved ones. They will never have to worry about who’s going to keep the checkbook balanced or look after them when they are ill.
