The Virgo & The Veneer of Perfection
Virgo are all about efficiency and analysis in the search of obtaining ‘perfection’. How do you define perfection? The Virgo isn’t even sure, all they know is - they have to be always working towards it; though they never seem to find it. Like an illusion, the mirage of what is ‘perfect’ pulls further away as Virgo reaches out to grab it. The frustration, the urgency to fix all the irritants and the critical internal monologue mean their natural expression is geared towards anxiety, nerves and restlessness. Virgo are always moving - motioning, their hands move as rapidly as their thoughts.
Even when Virgo have produced tremendous pieces of work they still feel as though it is unworthy. Discrimination, realism and being helpful to others is what matters to people born under this sign. With an innate need to be of service; Virgo like to offer their services in repairing, refining and improving. They are rapid evaluators and can quickly assess situations and environments. Virgo’s discerning eyes mean they can see below the surface, and are sensitive to rhythms and clockwork in their surroundings.
Virgo signifies how we critically assess life and this energy doesn’t believe anything on face value. They look beyond the feature to weigh up the usefulness. Those in the Virgo’s life very much appreciate their tremendous critical skills of evaluation; it may be the Virgo who feels most troubled by it. At it’s worst, the need for perfection can transpire in an openly critical nature. Their inability to repress the chaos inside them results in a need for intensive control over their external environment. Wherever we have Virgo in our chart we are able to assess our issues step by step and find conclusion. Many admire and give credibility to the Virgo personality, which blends the features of practicality, patience, precision; and think they are perfect as they are.
