Oh to be a discerning Virgo! Everyone goes on about how Virgos are critical, don’t they? Have you heard that one? You know, you can’t walk into a room without noting that the place needs vacuuming, or that the windows need cleaning, or that whoever you’re with hasn’t shined their shoes. Or whatever. Pah to that!
Firstly, as you undoubtedly know, there are plenty of Virgos out there in the Real World who couldn’t keep their home tidy if their life depended on it. Secondly, it’s not that you’re just born critical, it’s that you can’t help noticing what has and hasn’t been done up to scratch. And because your sign is about ‘service. and about .being of service to others., you often believe you’re doing the right thing by pointing out flaws to others. And heck, it’s not a great astro-job, but someone has to do it. Traditionally your sign represented the women who sorted the grain from the chaff – ie: who had to be good at seeing what was worth keeping and what was no use at all. This is where your ability to be – ahem – let’s call it super-discerning comes from. And yes it is a mixed blessing!
But Virgo is about much more than fault-finding. For one thing, your ruler is Mercury and you have a fine mind which you’re usually quite good at expressing.
You may not be the most flamboyant person in town, but you have your feet on the ground, and you help others get theirs on terra firma too. Being an Earth sign, you don’t usually have time for fripperies, however, that quick mind of yours means you’re smart enough to see the funny side of most situations.
One thing is true though – you love your routines and woe betide the person who swoops into your life thinking that they can alter them! Having a routine makes you feel safe and secure. Sometimes, though, breaking out of those routines can bring you the breathing space you need.
You’re also usually the sporty type and if you’re not engaged in team sports or regular as clockwork runs and swims, you at least pay a lot of attention to your diet. In fact, you’re very handy to have around. A few weeks with a Virgo and even the slobbiest person starts to feel healthier in mind, body and spirit!
You’re an excellent listener with great timing and you make a great teacher. Just avoid doing so much for others that you forget to look after yourself. You’re also reliable, gorgeously modest and ranked amongst the Great List Makers Of All Time.
Virgo Medical Astrology
Virgo, your digestive system, intestines, spleen and nervous system are the areas that may cause you the most problems. Prone to excessive worrying and anxiety? You have your nervous system to blame. You’re a perfectionist, and need everything to be orderly and organised. When it’s not, you may suffer from colds and constipation.
Virgos are the worriers of the zodiac, they sweat the small stuff and find it difficult to let go. They are very set in their ways— and all of this is related to their zodiac’s focus on the nervous system. Virgo needs to talk to friends about their problems, in order to avoid over-analysing things, and getting too caught up in insignificant details. Virgos can be chronic workaholics, and are perfectionists in their working lives due to the extremely high standards they set for themselves. Time to relax and clear their minds is integral for Virgos, as they can be hugely irritable and critical of others when they are feeling unwell.
Virgo can develop severe stomach pain when stressed, and are prone to stomach ulcers when they obsess and worry on negative emotions. Massage, meditation and relaxing music are key to avoiding any health issues that may arise from obsessive tendencies. Due to their digestive issues, Virgos need to chew their food thoroughly, and avoid raw fruits and vegetables, which are hard to digest. Room temperature water should be consumed, as cold water can weaken the digestive process.
