Being generally strait forward and direct, the Virgo 1 are normally very successful if applying their talents to serving others. When using their talents solely for their own ends they not very likely to succeed. They do however make very good partners and co-workers or business associates. Not much driven by ego and more likely to be seen behind the scenes and in teamwork to accomplish a common goal. If choosing to work alone they may become lonely and isolated from others. They are able to work selfless and alone for long periods of time with very little material rewards. Here they need to guard from being used by others. They do not easily give up for they have the ability to overcome many obstacles. They have the ability to use previously learned experience to solve new technical problems. They can follow a very strict system and needs to guard against making their lives to ridged and inflexible. They need as parents also guard against setting to strict rules for their children.  They can be very good friends, especially in times of need as they are normally very dependable. But again they need to guard against being used by others. They normally have a love for writing and communication by can have a one tract mind where they fixate on one idea or solution and loose sight of the bigger picture or alternative solutions. They may then delve so deep into this solution and commit so much energy and time into it before they realize there was an easier or better alternative. They have a tendency to not be able to make long lasting relationships, thus when they do make a friend they may smother the person and obsessively latch on to them.

Let things be as they will a little bit more, accept life for what it is. Try not to bring your work home and your home to work. Let others do things a bit more for themselves and demand that they stand a bit more on their own feet. Do not let others use you and sponge on you.


Virgo 2

+-9 - 18 Virgo The Enigma Late Summer Earth Mutable Sun The Virgin Sensation / Thought

Virgo 2 people are paradoxical and often so mysterious that it makes them very hard to understand and explain. They often find themselves struggling alone on a highly personal quest that others cannot comprehend and that are difficult to explain. They have a very powerful and intellectual mind that suits them well for the scientific, technical or highly expertise field of work. They love to work to and maintain a high standard in their lives. People around them may have difficulty living up to their standards and this can cause problems between them. They have a tendency to repeat their childhood onto their children and can be a problem if they where rejected or denied love as a child. This is something they need to guard against doing to their children or even partner. They can be to demanding on themselves when looking after their children, bringing themselves to breaking point. They are generally agreeable in nature and can be mistaken for being an easy pushover, but you will soon find it different when you cross them. Normally blessed with good looks.

Be a little more flexible and compromising in your standards to others. Not every one operates to your high standards and is a perfectionist. It is also not always necessary to do things perfect, finding fun in doing something is sometimes more important than doing it perfect, especially if you do it with a loved one. Learning to be gentle and kind will take you a long way forward in live.

Virgo 3

+-17 - 26 Virgo The Literalist Late Summer Earth Mutable Sun The Virgin Sensation / Thought

Virgo 3 people are often only in it for themselves and not shy to demand what they want. Their focus is more on what suits them than others. The serving side of Virgo is falling away here as we move closer to the Libra influence. This is not to say that they are cold and unloving, they do need love and affection. They are just much more picky in what they accept and have very high standards. They risk coming of as discriminating as to others and need to be a little bit more forgiving and accepting towards others. They tend to have difficulty dealing with emotions and can tend to take things literally and personally. This can knock them totally of track if a highly emotional event occurs in their lives un-expectantly, like a sudden death or breakup. They normally do not have much sympathy towards others and their cause and can often despise self-pity and lack of self-criticism. They can be very hard on those that are not strict on themselves and over indulge or revel in self-pity. But this is nothing compared to the hatred they have for those that have betrayed them or have sabotaged their plans.  Even if they do not seek revenge or retribution, you know you are history to them. They do tend to love neatness and order, coupled with advanced planning they can be sometimes ruthless in implementing their plans. Using manipulation and strait out demand to get what they want. With this in mind, when they choose a companion they rarely stray, but note that they often demand the same level of contribution from their partner and may risk controlling or trying to control their partners in life.

Try to be a little bit more sympathetic towards others and their feelings. Accept others more as they are and try not to control and change them to what you want them to be. Be careful of just going for what you want and possibly burning your bridges behind you and alienating friends. Come out and play a little.

+-26 - Virgo - 2 Libra Beauty Late Spring/Early Fall Earth / Air Mutable / Cardinal Sun / Mercury The Virgin / Scales Sensation / Thought

Virgo people are normally attracted to beauty and objects of desire. They love to make things more aesthetically appealing. Virgo-Libra cusp people are very concerned with details and this makes them ideal in running a business or project. They are however very concerned with the outward appearance of things. This can lead them to be seen as superficial and ego seeking.

Be a little less concerned with appearance and material gain seeking. Do not forget the spiritual goals and growth and try to stress a little less. Have a bit more fun and relax a bit more. Try not to be too trendy and forgetting your own self just to fit in.
