Virgo Characteristics

If you have any Virgo friends, you've probably heard them complain about the tepid descriptions they often see about their Sun sign. Isthmus Nekoi has just taken a huge step to correct this. She notes how the typical Virgo description goes like this;
Oh maligned Virgo, you're possibly the most boring sign of the zodiac. By now we all know the old sun sign drill: she's overly critical, prudish, frigid, anal-retentive, borderline OCD. At best, the sign is characterized by a highly efficient, analytical worker drone with superior attention to detail. At worst, she's a rigid, aseptic, unfeeling perfectionist more suited to life in the Borg collective than with humanity.
And then she corrects this tired stereotype with some very interesting and profound observations about what the Virgo Sun Sign is actually truly about. Your Virgo friends will appreciate reading this!

And people may also be interested to know that Forbes Magazine has just hired four astrologers to look at the zodiac signs of the world's billionaires. They found there were more Virgo Sun signs on their list than any other zodiac sign. They confirmed the birth dates of 613 people on their list of 793 billionaries. Of those, about twelve percent were born with a Virgo Sun.

An excerpt from Forbes Magazine;
"It's a bit ironic that top astrology honors for this male-dominated billionaires list goes to the sign symbolized by a virgin, but it actually isn't too surprising. Virgos are known to be hardworking, determined, detail-oriented and analytical. They are driven more by their desire to achieve excellence at whatever they do than by the pursuit of riches, according to astrologer Michael Lutin.

These utilitarian types are happiest when they can produce things or services that are useful to others."

It's quite unusual for Forbes to have this kind of emphasis on astrology. Maybe it's a sign of things to come?
