Sun Sign Birthday Special: Virgo
It’s Happy Birthday time to those known as the hardest-working folks in the Zodiac, Virgos! The ideal time then to delve a little deeper and get inside the heads and hearts of those associated with the sign of the Virgin and take a look at what it is that makes them tick…
Who They Are
In a lot of ways, Virgoans are like the Monica Geller of the 12-signs: practical, organised, sharp, grafting and fussy, with an eccentric enthusiasm for cleanliness and a strong desire for security and stability.
Often introverted and modest by nature, they are also known too for their tremendous loyalty and kindness, especially to animals. Being the second of the three Earth signs (Taurus being the first and Capricorn the final), those born under the sign of Virgo tend to have a deep love and connection to the planet if they choose to embrace a love of nature.
Home & Family
As with all the Earth signs, home and family are especially important to the Virgoan who likes to run a very tight ship – with their highly renowned analytical attention to detail and impressive intellect immensely helpful in this regard.
In career, these talents make for valuable assets too, along with good communication and an ability to argue their point successfully and factually as well as being creative; someone who “thinks outside the box”.
Health & Well Being
Virgoans have a tendency to enjoy a good worry! Their analytical mind can tick over the most minutiae of detail that most of us wouldn’t even think of. Understandably, that can make them prone to stress, mental health issues such as anxiety and/or depression, as well as upset nervous and digestive systems generally. It’s important that the Virgoan is allowed to take time to recharge and refresh whether by simply soaking in a relaxing candlelit bubble bath or a full blown massage/spa day to help them switch off from time to time. Yoga and meditation would make excellent forms of both exercise and rejuvenation for the Virgo.
Love & Relationships
The Virgoan in love is loyal and kind, strong, stable – and can be a bit slow to warm up! Virgoans have a reputation of being “picky” so they’re unlikely to be the jump right in type. They usually want to make sure that it will work out, that the person’s right for them and their life. It may not seem romantic but at least you know if you’re picked out by a Virgo, it’s been a well-thought out choice!
This slow and steady, down-to-earth approach to life combined with a love for the simple things in life defines the typical Virgo-born but, as with all signs, there can be some difficult typical traits too:
- A sometimes overwhelming shyness;
- Overly cautious;
- Lack of self-confidence and belief;
- Overly critical;
- Can appear cold/harsh;
Whilst the Virgoan in your life will no doubt like actual presents too, maybe the best gift you can give for their birthday is letting them know how much you appreciate them and all the little things they do for you.
For the Virgo, taking a day off from it all, even to celebrate their birthday, might feel something of a challenge with their hardworking tendencies. Surprise parties might also be off-limits for the typically shy Virgoan, who can often feel uncomfortable taking centre-stage. Instead, finding a way to help the Virgo unwind, relax and recharge their batteries might be a better received way to celebrate.
In essence, the Virgoan is a head-over-heart realist with a big heart for the right person. Whilst they can too often chastise others over the smallest matter, (such as not stacking the dish-washer just so) for those who aren’t particularly practical or interested in the day-to-day, mundane matters of life, they can be life-savers, happy to be of service in organising and dealing with these often thankless tasks.
If you’ve got a special Virgo in your life, make sure you let them know how much you appreciate them this birthday and all the little things they do for you year-round. Encourage them to take some well-earned time-off to celebrate together in whatever way they choose and this alone could go a long way towards doing that.
Bear in mind that the above article describes a person’s typical Sun Sign Virgo traits only and that an individual’s full birth chart details would be required to be more accurate to that individual.
