Personality Traits of Virgo: Our birthday greetings to all of you born under the sign of Virgo one of the most sensible, practical and modest signs of the Zodiac, but also one with the most critical mind! Being an Earth sign and "ruled" by Mercury, Virgo is an industrious sign, which likes to do everything in a methodical manner.
They do not really care for other people's opinion and do not know how to take compliments well! They are somewhat shy and become critical and sarcastic if someone praises them too much (exactly opposite to a Leo!). They are often talented in writing (Goethe and Tolstoy), arts (realistic or nature drawing and miniatures with emphasis on detail and accuracy rather than imagination), dancing, music (playing exact notes as opposed to composing), and languages (with emphasis on grammar and pronunciation).
They are perfectionists in everything they do but can get caught up with nit-picking details. They are efficient and normally do not have to repeat anything because they do it right the first time. Virgos are probably the most unselfish friends to have and are true friends in need. However, do not expect them to soothe you with stories. If you are going through a breakup, they will give you all the reasons why you should not have been involved in the first place!
Virgos are often involved in teaching, accounts, health oriented profession and the service industry. Saving others is the best way for them to deal with their tendency to indulge in self-pity and the "poor me" attitude, because they can change it into compassion. Virgos are excellent trouble shooters because of their logical , analytical, organized and practical approach. Virgos make excellent researchers and are often drawn to health oriented professions. Those with Venus in Virgo can be somewhat shy in love. They enjoy natural skin care products and are good in modeling. Venus in Virgo is compatible with Venus in Taurus, Cancer and Scorpio.
Some of the people born under the sign of Virgo are Florence Nightingale, H.G.Wells, Peter Falk, D.H. Lawrence, Peter Sellers, painter Grandma Moses, Greta Garbo and fashion model Twiggy.
From June 2013 till June 2014, Jupiter will make you more positive and help you look at the bigger picture and to appreciate all the positive aspects of your life and your future. During this period, you will have many opportunities to travel and a luck element from foreign countries. This will leave you feeling more optimistic and hopeful than you have felt in a long time. Your luck is also through people who are philosophical and travel a lot or are very much into positive motivation and are very broadminded and worldly.
Any transit from Jupiter to your Sun sign always makes you more optimistic but pace yourself. Take advantage of new and exciting opportunities that are brought about by experiences with foreign countries and travels during this lucky period. This is the time to expand all your goals and use the "luck" element which you feel during this transit.
Jupiter represents your ability to be in the right place when opportunities develop and your need to expand your horizons: June 2013 till June 2014 will be a particularly good time for all Sagittarius teachers, priests, lawyers writers, publishers, philosophers and those involved with import/export business. Just pace yourself and don't take on more than you can handle.
From 15th Apr to 27th June 2013, Venus helps you with more charm and charisma and keeps your lifestyle socially active. Use this period to enhance your personality with a new hairstyle, designer outfit, or beauty treatments. Mars makes you more magnetic and passionate but also more aggressive from 20th Apr to 30th May.2013.
From Feb 2012 for several years ahead, Neptune in Pisces will be opposing your Sun Sign but this is a very long transits and its effects very gradual. the whole world will be much more compassionate and humanitarian and this theme will also bring out some of your best qualities in helping others. However, there is also some inspirational sadness which seems to make people more creative but also brings a sense of pathos with it. Excellent for helping others but you may feel that you want to do more than just focus on material assets. Get involved with some volunteer work to offset this theme. This is also an excellent transit for all creative projects especially if they involve the film, music or any art form.
You will only benefit from the inspirational transit of Neptune if you become more humanitarian and concerned for the welfare of the masses. When it comes to spirituality and creativity, you will be at the top of your game. You will be acutely sensitive to sound and colour and will have exciting spurts of luck throughout this period.
With Pluto in the Capricorn, there is a deep wisdom aspect coming in your life as it sextiles your Sun Sign. This is a very slow moving planet and depending on whether you were born early or later in your sign, but eventually Pluto will sextile your natal Sun. You can take advantage of this once in a lifetime transits by reevaluating the last few years in a new light and understanding the reason behind events. You will have a much better understanding of your mission in life and will have a deeper awareness of life's principles and a conscious awareness of divine truth.
When Mars makes an adverse aspect to your Neptune, this transit reduces the immune system of the body and you are more prone to scandals, out of wedlock pregnancies and other nightmares scenarios.
Depending on the age group listed below, you are also more prone to stress related illnesses including the flu and generally need to be careful that you don't set yourself up for a nightmare period. Be extra careful when signing any documents, investing in stocks on going to psychics or tarot card readers (astrologers are a bit more dependable!).
You also need to be extra careful with the ocean (drowning incidents) or being kidnapped! Of course this doesn't happen all the time but at least don't put yourself in that position. False accusations, feelings of betrayal and being a victim of scam artists is also a hallmark of this transit.
