I don't know how I wasn't aware of the site previously. I have certainly enjoyed reading the entries. I can so relate to many of the comments made here.
As a virgo female (9/21), I think I am often misunderstood as I don't favor gossip, degredation of others, deception or lies. Sarcasm is not my fortae. I believe in honesty and truthfulness but find that many can't appreciate that even if delivered in a non-critical or compasionate way. I think I serve as a motivator and encourage others in whatever situation they may be dealing with to find the inner strength they possess. I maintain a positive attitude and attempt to communicate that to others no matter how hopeless a situation may appear.
I know I'm not a control freak but do weigh out the positives and negatives in any situation. I need to have a sence of order and organization. I'm certainly not perfect and don't expect that in others but appreciate the uniqueness we each possess . . . until you have walked a mile in another man's shoes you can't know how they fit.. I try to live life by determining those things I cannot change, change those I can, and wisdom to know the difference. We can't change the world but can attempt to make the world a better place with our actions, which speak so much louder than words. All talk and no action is a waste of words . . .
I loved the reference to the "sixth sense" which many of you had mentioned. I took my adult life to realize that everyone doesn't have this which many of us do. Always trust that gut feeling it's proven to be accurate in so many situations.
It's not a perfect world and although we are often called "perfectionists" I think what we attempt to do is find a way to improve . . . there is always room for improvement and Virgo would be the sign that recognizes that fact.
I'm glad I am a virgo. . . wouldn't know how to be anything else, somebody has got to look at the world with a discriminating eye, guess that's our role. . . complacency and apathy are not characteristics that define us. It is in being of service to others that we find our greatest rewards.
