There is value in Astrology in that by doing some self-analyzation and reflection we hopefully begin the process of accepting who we are. Astrology helps us understand what behaviors and attitudes we exhibit when balanced or imbalanced. The more you understand your own proclivities and weirdness the more you understand how very different we are from one another. This fosters understanding and ultimate acceptance that we are all unique. Isn’t that what we need more of in this world, to accept each other and ourselves for who we are?
Our sensibilities, motivations, attitudes, and essential natures are completely unique. Understanding your sun sign is just the beginning of getting to know who you are at your essence. For a deeper look at all of the astrological influences that make up who YOU are I recommend getting your free written birth chart reading from Michelle Knight, which is free.

Most Virgos are not huggers! Either way, it can be difficult for Virgos to accept the affections of others. This modesty or self-deprecation can also hinder their ability to fully express their feelings verbally or physically to their loved ones. Application of their analytical skills will help them to see the benefits of developing intimacy to overcome their reticence to connect and then they can relax into showing and receiving affection from their partners.
Virgos are usually neat, clean, and astute students & workers who love to keep busy. They make wonderful teachers, personal assistants, writers, and do well in the medical profession.
Most Virgos love to be outside in nature and find great joy in gardening. They are well suited to the country and enjoy spending time taking long walks and bike rides. This sign is the most adapted to vegetarianism. They are prone to constipation and so do well eating plenty of natural fiber from a whole foods-based natural diet. Their constitutions are extremely sensitive to medication and prone to allergies, so they do best with alternative and homeopathic treatments. Yoga and meditation, along with regular exercise outdoors is the best balance to their nervous energy.
