Why do I love and need Virgos?
- They are wise counselors who help us “keep it between the ditches.”
- They have the foresight to block the entrance to the road poorly chosen.
Imagine a wild stallion in the chute at a rodeo. He wants out! If you’re one of those folks who identifies with the stallion, hunt down a Virgo and handcuff yourself to them. If they’re typical of the sign, they’ll hold you steady on the course even though you may be champing at the bit.
I was once fortunate enough to have two very wise Virgos holding the reins of my emotional reaction to an over-charged situation ~ one a minister and the other, interestingly enough, an agnostic. Virgos run the gamut in their beliefs just like all the signs.
I’d venture to say, however, that all Virgos have a great respect for facts .
Virgo instinctively knows (and is teaching us) that slow, steady, and prepared can pave the way to a more credible future. One wise Virgo counseled, don’t let your emotions rule your response, just as the other wise Virgo counseled, You can argue with emotion, but you can’t argue with facts.
If those are the kind of statements that make you want to pull your hair out and run madly into the street, write them down and put them where you can see them every day. And leave them there when you want to rip them down. Do a little arrrrrgh dance in front of them, but leave them up.
Remember that wild stallion at the rodeo imagery? Virgo can tame that stallion to the point where he doesn’t even have to hold the reins.
Patience + Practicality + Precision + Perfection = Credibility.
Rudyard Kipling, who wrote the poem If, was a Capricorn with Virgo Rising, according to his chart at AstroDataBank. If it’s been a while since you read the poem, take a quick read again. Just click on the quote above. It’s sage advice for any time.
