I've always been very interested in zodiac signs and astrology. I feel like over the past few years, it's become super mainstream. So now, everywhere you turn, you hear about astrology and zodiac signs. Whereas seven years ago, that wasn't the case.
I'm a Virgo.
I think it's important to get acquainted with what your sign actually means. So I thought it would be really interesting to talk about the different characteristics your typical Virgo has, and then discuss whether I believe they apply to me and why.
Whenever you're researching your zodiac sign, you come across traits and characteristics that your sign typically tends to display.
Virgos are said to be:
-judgemental and overly critical
-calm on the exterior
-worrywarts and overthinkers
-fussy (strong likes and dislikes)
How much do these characteristics apply to me?
Judgemental/Overly critical: This absolutely applies to me. But maybe not in the way you'd expect. I don't believe I'm judgemental in the sense that I always have something to say about what other people are doing when it has absolutely nothing to do with me. I don't care that much. However, when it comes to someone I care about immensely, or if something does involve me, I can be judgemental or critical in the sense that I want them to be the best person that they can be. If I see that your room is messy, I'll say something about it. I always suggest ways to improve on the things that I'm criticizing people about though. 😇
Modest: I am definitely a modest person. I feel icky when I'm not humble. I will compliment myself though. Some people see me as loving myself as me being cocky. However, people who are confident in themselves never say that towards me. Because they get it. I think it's okay to talk about how you love yourself. I don't go around saying I'm perfect and acting like my ish doesn't stink though.
Hardworking: I am hardworking when it comes to something I care about. If I'm doing something and my heart isn't in it, I can be very lazy! If I love what I'm doing, you will absolutely be able to tell.
Helpful: I'm a helpful person. I love helping people who are in need and need a task done. There are instances where I'm not the most helpful, so it can be circumstantial, but overall, I'm almost always willing to lend a helping hand.
Health Freak: I've seen that this characteristic applies to Virgos in the sense that they're constantly worrying about health, even though they may not necessarily be the healthiest person. If that's the case, yes, this applies to me. I freak out easily if I don't feel right or if something about my body changes or appears to be different. I'm notorious for upsetting myself after searching health facts for a couple of hours on Google.
Analytical: Absolutely. I love analyzing problems and figuring out a conclusion based on the information I've been given. I'm very investigative at times.
Book Lover: I've always loved books. Recently, I haven't been reading as much as I'd like to, but growing up, you'd rarely ever catch me without a book. I can read for hours if you let me.
Loyal: I'm as loyal as they come. If I love and care about someone, I will defend them until the day I die and always have their back in any way I can.
Detail-oriented: I am extremely detail-oriented. Things that most people would overlook or not notice, I do, because I like to immerse myself in all of the minute details of anything I'm working on or dealing with. Nothing gets past me.
Calm Exterior: This is circumstantial for me, but I can appear to be calm on the exterior for the most part.
Worrywart/Overthinker: I'm a huge overthinker. All it takes is for one thing to go wrong or not as planned and I'm constantly thinking about that one thing for way longer than I should. I always freak myself out overthinking and worrying about things that I can't control and probably shouldn't care so much about. However, I am getting better at this with time, thankfully.
Perfectionist: I want things to be perfect 24/7, all the time. This is why I'm such a huge overthinker. I want things to be perfect every second of the day, and then when they're not (which is every day, because nothing is ever perfect), I lose my cool. 🤦🏾♀️
Problem Solver: I gravitate towards broken people, because I see them as needing to be fixed. Virgos love healing people and helping them be their best selves. So I am constantly looking for new ways to fix problems in other people's lives and also in my own.
Fussy: I'm a total nag a lot of the time, and I know that. When you're a perfectionist, you like things to be a certain way. And you hate when they're not. So that's when the fussiness comes in.
So from the looks of it, I am a true Virgo at heart! Virgo is my sun sign, which means it's my core at a basic level. I'm happy to be a Virgo, because I think the characteristics they portray are beautiful, even though I may be biased.
