Finally at 40 I've accepted being a Virgo- and once that happened I became centered. I would always fight the crazy stores like Costco but now I can walk in and remind myself that it was not developed by a Virgo- like Ikea must have been. Have you ever found a more organized mega store than Ikea. My husband is Gemini gulp we've been together for 25 years since I was 15, he loves Costco- now that I accept being a Virgo I can also accept Costco is not for me! The crazy energy in that store makes me a bit psychotic.
I can not stop analyzing & I used to apologize but now I have the words to soften the conclusions I come to, my favorite being "Upon reflection." I have also realized that if I am going into a chaotic enviroment I strive to acknowledge that this situation is not supposed to be organized, or peaceful it is to be crazy to truly be, for example: a party, a bbq, Vegas or even a Costco! This makes a huge difference in how I can then cope without judgement or corrections.
One thing that has struck me in reading the past posts is I never saw anyone mention forgiveness. I ask if the other virgo's forgive easily? I never hold grudges & I forgive so easily I forget what ever happened in the first place. Is this a trait of the Virgo?
As I channel the strength of the Virgo I see that everyone is following the path they should be on and it keeps me from trying to fix. I only go into fix-it mode if I am asked to, and surprise surprise I have never had so many friends asking for advise. I try and be humble and not a know-it-all I try to recgonize that I have only my own experiences to fall back on and it may not even be relevant.
My biggest challenge is to calm my spirit...... meditation has been the only thing to stop my mind from spiralling into crazy. I used to love my wine at night it stopped the constant quest to figure and resolve but now I meditate, my liver is happier! It's not easy being a Virgo but it can be more rewarding once you stop fighting it.
