I *hate* being a Virgo
Observant, shrewd, critically inclined, judicious, intellectually inquiring, methodical and logical, studious and teachable.
But the outward lack of feeling may, in some individuals born under this sign, conceal too much emotion, to which they are afraid of giving way because they do not trust others, nor do they have confidence in themselves and their judgments. This is because they are conscious of certain shortcomings in themselves of worldliness, of practicality, of sophistication and of outgoingness. So they bring the art of self concealment to a high pitch, hiding their apprehensiveness about themselves and their often considerable sympathy with other people under a mantle of matter-of-factness and undemonstrative, quiet reserve.
Excellent eye for detail but they may be so meticulous that they neglect larger issues
Their self distrust is something they project on to other people
Their faults, as is usual with all zodiacal types, are the extremes of their virtues. Fastidious reticence and modesty become old-maidishness and persnicketiness; balanced criticism becomes carping and nagging; and concern for detail becomes overspecialization. Virgoans are liable to indecision in wider issues and this can become chronic, turning molehills of minor difficulties into Himalayas of crisis. Their prudence can become guile and their carefulness, turned in on themselves, can produce worriers and hypochondriacs.
They are such perfectionists that, if things go wrong, they are easily discouraged.
It's this last part that gives me the most trouble. That, combined with self-distrust is a nasty hit to the self-esteem. I wish I could read things like this and say "Zodiac signs are such a load of fortune-telling CRAP!'.... but in reality, I can't, because it really does say a lot about me and I really don't like it.
