Virgo the Maiden - Dedicated Analysis to Work for Society

(Just a note:  not ALL the classic social role models ("archetypes") will fit the sign's characteristics--but these are good examples of people who outwardly express the qualities of the sign.)

Virgo (August 23 - September 23)
"I Am What I Organize and Serve"

For a Virgo, the endeavors of work and service are the cornerstone of life. Their dedication to efficiency for a task assigned to them becomes an expression of a fulfillment of purpose. Virgos have the capability to direct their attention to detail to hair-splitting measures that often drive others to distraction. 

A Virgo will create order out of chaos, clean and organize if necessary, evaluate and coordinate, and restructure an existing situation to fit their ideals of perfection. Their fussiness in personal and professional matters makes them suited for intricate, precise work requiring accuracy and dedication. Virgos are often found in the workplace as accountants, scientists, critics or administrators. They have the capacity to sacrifice themselves into their work, believing that service to humanity is the highest gesture they can offer.

Virgos also have a sensitive nature to foods or medicines. The sign Virgo represents the pure nature of the virgin, or an idea or principle remaining innocent in nature. Virgo rules the intestines, and Virgos often find themselves becoming vegetarians or health food conscious as a means of living. When a Virgo is upset or they are physically impaired by food that does not readily digest, they suffer digestive ailments, like gastritis or abdominal blockage. Their awareness of diet and alternative lifestyles for better living gives them insight into the food service and nutrition occupations.

Virgos also have the steady application of an earth sign, so they have the endurance to keep fixed to an objective at work, long after others would have assumed the job completed. They tend to strive so hard for perfection that they often spend time worrying about particulars that have no bearing on the issue. This tendency to fret over trivial details also fuels the Virgo nervous system into panic and anxiety over the slightest overlooked matter. They will research projects thoroughly to avoid possible error, and their ability to communicate this process can be both amusing and eloquent.

A Virgo will respond with pleasure to words both carefully placed, to bring about an elaborate, methodical acknowledgment. The fussy, "neat and clean" Virgo was nicely portrayed by Tony Randall as "The Odd Couple" cast member role of Felix Unger, and a higher, evolved image was captured by Leonard Nimoy and Brent Spiner's respective Star Trek roles of Mr. Spock and Commander Data.**(
