My Zodiac Sign: Does it Fit me?
Wikipedia states the following about a Virgo:"Virgo is considered a 'feminine' or passive (introvert) sign. This gives the characteristics of being reflective and receptive to the ideas of others. This passivity, accompanied by a flair for discrimination and eloquence with words has given Virgos a reputation for civility and good manners. They are said to have a talent for projects which require precision and detail, and to excel at skills and crafts which require patience and exactitude. On the negative, they are highly sensitive to perceived criticism, and can appear to worry unduly about the need to make things as perfect as they can be.:21 Joanna Watters (2003) defined a keyphrase for this sign as "I serve", and summarises the Virgo reputation for over-analysing emotions by saying:"One of the Virgo lessons in life is to learn that to err is human, to forgive divine, especially when it comes to love."
One of the key elements about a Virgo is that we are analytical. I have been known to over-analyze just about everything to the point that I will get anxious about things.
As far as patience goes, it depends on the situation. I despise having to wait for anything, but if I am working on a project, I do not care how long it takes as long as the project is complete and is done correctly.
Criticism is something that I have a hard time with. It really depends on the person criticizing me, but I'll chew over the words and try to make it so I don't get criticized for the same thing more than once. This makes it hard in intimate relationships because someone may say something in passing and I take it to heart. If someone once tells me that a color does not look good on me, I try to avoid that color; or they tell me that they don't like curly hair, I have been known to straighten it in the past. (I have learned that if someone does offer criticism that I don't need to change anything except for the person I am dating.)
My emotions are quite strong. Forgiveness is something that takes awhile to give, love is something I don't give freely, and trust has to be earned.
What is your zodiac sign? Do you put much meaning into it?
