The Virgo is highly discriminating, but not necessarily as prudish at some might believe. In ancient times, a Virgin was a woman who was not the property of man, and therefore had the legal right to just say “no.” Now, in modern times, you Virgos are known for your ability to be highly discriminating — especially when it comes to matters of personal desire. When Virgo is ready, however, to say yes, the laser-like focus of your passion is anything but prudish.
You Virgos have the uncanny sense to see what’s wrong with a person, a situation or your environment. It’s why Virgo makes such natural critics. Virgo practical analytical abilities are second to none. Your mental process may not be the most creative, but Virgo’s razor-like thinking is highly effective. Like the maiden pictured in the Virgo glyph, you separate the useful wheat from the unneeded chafe, the good from the bad. Virgo might be a “clean freak,” but most Virgos have a messy closet somewhere or a disaster under their bed.
The Virgo motto could be “Perfect is almost good enough.” On one hand, this trait makes you very employable, for you’re not likely to do shabby work. On the other hand, you can be so finicky that you put limitations on your interactions and experiences before they happen. You’ll be happier if you can learn to be selectively less critical, both of others and yourself.
