Virgo in Love
Goodness know why word has it that Virgos are the staunch realists of the zodiac – the sign that is to romance what chalk is to cheese – but ignorance breeds many falsehoods. In truth Ms Virgo yearns to be swept away by love and passion and longs to find her soul-mate. However, since her logical mind informs her that this probably won’t happen – at least in this lifetime – she makes an awful lot of noise about love being the holy grail of the seriously misguided. (She really doesn’t mean it and she’s hoping against hope that one day she’ll be proved wrong.)
You and your opposite sign, the mystical and dreamy Fish, have more in common than you may think. The main difference is that while Ms Pisces dives into love and allows herself to be totally submerged by the experience, Virgo stands on the edge of those deep waters, analysing the pros and cons, until she convinces herself that her wetsuit will protect her. At some point, usually after several painful excursions into love, you realize that you cannot seal yourself off from hurt because it is the handmaid of love.
For some reason, perhaps because you can’t resist lost causes, your sign picks up more than its share of life’s dependents and misfits as partners, men who use and abuse you. This doesn’t have to be a life-long pattern, of course, but the trend towards sacrificing yourself through a relationship needs to be faced and understood, so that you will attract a sane, loving and supportive mate. Part of the problem revolves around self-esteem, or the lack of it, and as soon as you get the idea that you deserve to be loved, like magic, it happens.
Forget all that nonsense about Virgo being the librarian and the caretaker of the zodiac – you are a sensuous, resourceful and fascinating creature. Now, repeat after me: I am desirable. I am a wild thing. I deserve the best.
