Myths and Legends
Virgo is probably the most underestimated sign of the Zodiac; they do not make a fuss about themselves or their needs and tend to keep themselves out of the limelight unless they choose a career on the stage. The word Virgo is often misinterpreted to mean sexual virgins whereas one interpretation is that it meant to be intact, self-contained and their own person, another interpretation is that it meant a state of spiritual state of pureness or wholeness. Therefore, any reference to Virgo’s being sexually inhibited or prudish is unfounded. The main issue with Virgo regarding sexual relationships is discrimination, put simply they are choosy. This perception is reinforced by the fact that Virgo’s tend to be psychologically and emotionally self-sufficient people, they do not rely on others for a sense of identity or wholeness. This explains why Virgo’s are more able than most to live on their own.
The Dark Side
The dark side of Virgo can be summed up in the following expressions, ‘know it all’ combined with ‘I told you so’, and ‘the Hustler’. The know it all syndrome can take the form of a war of attrition lasting for years that can take away from others every bit of self-confidence and belief in themselves. This together with ‘I told you so’ aspect is related to Virgo’s fear of being wrong, and hence trying to remove all uncertainties and smooth out life’s difficulties. The Hustler is the result of a very disillusioned Virgo who puts up barriers to defend their true feelings, and for whom everything has a price, this is more common in the male Virgo’s who have difficulty portraying a macho image.
Virgo as Lovers
For Virgo to overcome a slowness in love and sex they need to communicate and have something in the relationship other than just sex, such as common interests and a meeting of minds, otherwise they may live up to their reputation for being a bit frigid. Virgo’s emotions are sensitive and delicate and their sexual needs are sensuous and deep, for these reasons they take a long time to thaw out fall in love and show their feelings. Virgo has a fear of the unknown, therefore, they prefer to be safe and predictable and therefore they find the spontaneous and improvised difficult to deal with.
The Virgo Man
The Virgo man may be into working out in the gym or keeping fit but this is soften to conceal their vulnerable and sensitive inner self and for that reason they have difficulty with the macho man image. Instead, give him a problem and he will enjoy solving it, he likes to be seen as being a man of reason and likes to feel needed especially when it comes to offering support, material assistance and advice to those in need. However, their coolness, and self-control can be insufferable to those wanting a moment of passion, while he takes time to neatly dust off and hang up his clothes! The big thing in their favour is that they are good listeners provided it is done in a cool and calm manner as they do not cope well with anger and aggression. Virgo men should be appreciated for their wit, wisdom, sensitivity, kindness and non-clingy inner solitude.
The Virgo Woman
If you are looking for a stay at home housekeeper then you are going to be very disappointed, or it could be that there is some other motive for her doing it! Having said that there are plenty of Virgo women who do have an interest in an orderly and tidy home. The main thing about Virgo women is their intelligence, good taste, subtlety and understanding together with a good sense of humour. Being a self-contained person it is difficult for Virgo women to be totally married in an emotionally dependent sense and you invade their own head space at your peril. Virgo women tend to be somewhat liberated with minds of their own and opinions which some can go on about for a very long time to the point of distraction. With an attention to detail and pride in their skill, whatever Virgo women do they do it very well.
