Archetypes and Roles
The Analyst, the Perfectionist, the Researcher, the Servant, the Refiner, the Critic
Bringing order out of confusion gives you deep satisfaction. Your cosmic ruler is thoughtful, agile Mercury. Dwelling in a universe of pure, rational thought would be your ideal. Your quick mind and talent for language will carry you far.
"I Analyze" is your birth sign's signature phrase. Understanding the origins and philosophical concepts behind spiritual practices will help you benefit from them. Your emblem, the Virgin, is one of the oldest representations of fruitfulness and growth. Celibacy, in this instance, refers to the idea of self-possession and maintaining personal identity after mating. Pursuing self-analysis will assist you on spiritual paths. You will revel in the details of preparing for sabbat celebrations. Love of detail gives Virgo a special affinity with ritual magick.
To the world you may give an impression of calm authority, but you are aware of your own nervous, restless, controlled intensity, the desire to be up and doing, rearranging, improving.
The planet Mercury, which rules both Virgo and Gemini, causes them to be constantly active. It's almost impossible for a Virgo to put off until tomorrow what might be done now. You are, in a word, organized.
Your emotional life is a constant battle to bring order out of chaos. Although you have a great capacity for love, love alone is not enough for you to be happy.
Intelligence is the hallmark of your sign. You have an excellent memory, an analytical mind, and are known for crystal clear thinking.
Until you have the facts before you, you are reluctant to make a decision.
One of your major faults is that you don't see the forest for the trees. You must know the why and how of everything.
You may run into difficulty because of a tendency to complicate everything. No problem is ever simple for Virgo. Making mountains out of molehills is one of your specialties.
A highly developed sense of discrimination may lead you to be hypercritical. It's also a rare Virgo who takes criticism well or who can admit to being in the wrong.
You are prone to tension and nervous ailments because you can't help being a worrier.
A warm loving relationship brings out the best in anyone born under this sign because basically you are kind, devoted and very loyal. Your mate will never have to worry who's going to keep the checkbook balanced, or look after them when they are ill.
Self-contained and Strong through inner reserves.
