I am in my 60s now, so I have spent many years soul searching about my obssession with all things must be in order and carried out in methodical ways that have even driven me a little crazy. BTW: my daughter is a Virgo too...lot's of fun with some explosive time too, lol! We can have some very deep conversations about being Virgos and being misunderstood. We talk alot about how to protect ourselves from being misused by people who take are kindness for weakness. Just because we may seem quite and reserved, doesn't mean that we are push overs. It's cool for me now to relax and have a "let it go" attitude...after years of practice. Now I feel no need to be a perfectionist and worry all the time about being right. It doesn't help anyway. Especially at work, I no longer feel the need to correct people and steer them to my way of thinking about the proper or better way to do something...who cares!...nobody that's who. [my boss is a Virgo too] As you all know, we Virgos have to be busy and partake in some kind of activity; or project, or is it just me? I am a late bloomer in my education. I have spent the last ten years completing my undergrad and a graduate degrees. In doing so, I discovered that once I am passionate about something, I am bound and determined to finish it. I plan, plan, plan and map out a course of completion to ad nauseum. But by doing so, I get the job done. I have learned to be more flexible about my little lists of things to do, lol. We are also very misunderstood about being cold and aloof...it's just a coverup, right?. I am a very warm and passionate person. I do have my dark side, doesn't everyone? Yes, I have a razor sharp tongue. I can use a few choice words to cut a person down. However, I am more mature now and only use it when absolutely neccessary. I try to take the high road approach. But when confronted...look out! I have observed that Virgos run hot and then they run cold. It may take 20 minutes or 20 years, but if we are not stimulated in some fashion, we lose interest and want to move on. Learning new things is key for me. Most jobs I have had usually run the course quickly. Once I learn the steps and procedures, then I'm bored with it and need to move on to something else. I have had several dissappointing relationships with two Tauruses and an Aquarius, yikes. Mind you, these relationships were all long term..over 10 years each, go figure! Once I am in love, I am focused on the one relationship and try to zero in on how to make that person happy and fulfill my need to "serve", uggghh!! They all enjoyed and soaked up my love and attention, but they did not return it to me. I was left with a cold empty feeling. Why it took me so long to end the relationships is still puzzling to me. I kept trying to make it work . Then I started to become distant from them, and was accused of being a cold Virgo, please! Now I take full responsibility for my own happiness and contentment. I do the things that I like to do...even if I have to go it alone. Only the tough can survive a relationship with a Virgo. But once they do, it can be heaven! Peace and blessing to you all.
