Both sexes have considerable
charm and dignity. In marriage they
can be genuinely affectionate, and make good partners and parents.
They are meticulous planners, considering every detail and its effect.
There is seldom much room for
emotional involvement because the mind is always engaged and dominant.
What they lack in passion they make up for in preciseness.When confronted
with obstacles, they stay calm and rational and work on finding a
solution rather than loosing their cool. This calmness is sometimes
seen as being cold and calculating. In spite of this, Virgos are friendly
and outgoing people.
Virgoans are essentially tacticians,
admirable in the attainment of limited objectives. They have a basic
distrust in their nature, not only of other people but themselves
as well. They project this mistrust to others and therefore make exacting
employers. Although, they will never ask anyone to do what they won't
do, it is still asking a lot, because most people will not go to the
pains a Virgo will.
Their mental bend gives them
the ability to analyze and solve the most complicated problems. Virgos
have a wonderful eye for detail and often neglect the overall issues.
Hard workers and conscientious, they are perfectionists with little
tolerance for shoddy work. There is no place in their world for people
who are footloose and fancy free. More concerned with the outcome
than the process, Virgos lack spontaneity.
Main positive traits: Practical,
analytical, neat, industrious, detailed.
On the negative side, Virgos
have a penchant for turning molehills into mountains, difficulties
into stress and cleanliness into obsessive behavior. There is a need
to pay attention to health concerns, particularly those related to
overt stress. Virgos are predisposed to worry and hypochondria. They
can make themselves so useful to others, it often leaves them vulnerable
to exploitation. They need to avoid being shy or inhibited when it
comes to dealing with others interests as well as with their personal
Main negative traits:
Fault -finding, cynical, shyness, perfectionist, worrying, critical
Due to the Virgo preference
for detail rather than the big picture, they make better workers
than they do leaders. They are practical, mental people,
possessing inquiring and logical minds. In this respect, they make
excellent students, and good teachers. Practical and good with their
hands, they are excellent technicians
and have good inventive talents.
Virgos possess a strong potential
for the arts, sciences and language. They are well suited for any
career where analysis, detail and precision are required. They
make excellent programmers, accountants, and statisticians. Many go
into medicine, law, and the teaching profession. With an avid
interest in history, some Virgos make excellent writers and researchers.

Origins in Mythology
Virgo, also known as Astraes,
was the daughter of Jupiter and Themses and
considered the Goddess of Justice. The constellation is one of only
three which represent women.
An alternate belief associates
the constellation with the tragic Coronis, lover of the Greek god
Apollo. Coronis was mortal and feared that the god would tire of her
as she was aged, so she took another mortal, Ischys, as her lover.
In his rage, Apollo shot her fatally, with an arrow.
That Coronis was pregnant at
the time, did not stay the god's sense of vengeance. Her child, Asclepius,
was saved by Hermes, who delivered the baby on the funeral pyre. Entrusted
to the care of Chiron, the child grew to become one of the greatest
healers of ancient Greece.
